Video:What image opened your eyes to human rights?

The HUB UDHR60 badgeThe sixtieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is on December 10th, and Witness’ The Hub team has put together a video that responds to the question: What images have opened your eyes to Human Rights? The video is online right now and with it they are asking all of us to participate by showing and telling the world about the power images have had in making us care about Human Rights.

The images used on their video all came from the archives at Witness’ The Hub, a platform for uploading Human Rights related videos. In this short clip, Human Rights abuses in Afghanistan, Argentina, Brazil, Burma, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Chechen Republic in Russia, the Philippines and West Sudan are featured.

The call for answers to their question is open for everyone, and there are different ways to respond:

1) Respond with video on the Hub
2) Respond with text (leaving a comment on their blog post)
3) Respond with video on YouTube
4) Join them on Facebook
5) Blog & Vlog!

More information on The Hub's project can be found on their group page and on their blog. Any language is welcome for the response, and they'll do their best to translate all of the responses, and if you wish, you can also help them translate content.
