World Human Rights Day 10 December
Freedom of free expression is one of the last pure vestiges of democracy as it was intended. Social media is truly an incredible phenomenon, where we can all freely express and I am so grateful for it. However, this has given rise to a secondary phenomenon, of the perennially offended. And this is hurting free expression. We are fearful of expressing raw truth because of the backlash.
Students from Social Work at Marian College has taken the initiative to stand up for the Human Rights of every individual. They put up a whiteboard where everyone can go and press their fingerprints to show their support for the “Human Rights for everyone” movement.
