“All humans beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights.”
Human Rights Day is observed by the international community every year on 10 December and concluding a 16-day campaign against gender-based violence (starting November 25, International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women).
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights sets out a broad range of fundamental rights and freedoms to which all of us are entitled, reminds sambo.sport.
It guarantees the rights of every individual everywhere, without distinction based on nationality, place of residence, gender, national or ethnic origin, religion, language, or any other status. Available in more than 500 languages, it is the most translated document in the world and inspired more than 60 human rights instruments which together constitute an international standard of human rights.
Human rights are fundamental to every person as well as to each organization that takes liability to society, community and rest of the world.
The International SAMBO Federation as a main body of a self-defence sport recognises well that each of us should be accountable to protect our bodies, spirits and habitats and to follow the practice of a respectful involvement regardless of race, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability or nationality.
Just recently this year the FIAS CEO Michal Buchel took part as a panellist of a of session about “Sport as a human right, human rights in sports” at UTS World Virtual Youth Festival 2020:
“Human rights provide a framework to sustain the positive impact sport has on society. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights had all countries unite to recognise that all people share fundamental, inalienable rights. Unfortunately, over the last 70 years since its mark, the human rights agenda is losing ground, constraints and there are places where the total denial of human rights still exists” – Mr. Buchel said.” Human rights ensure State sovereignty to help societies grow and be resilient, empower women and children, advance development, prevent conflict and ensure an equitable world. The Olympic Movement’s obligation and duty is to ensure Human Rights violations do not continue without repercussions, responsibility or without focus and support given towards to these issues.”
