Summary
Adopted in response to the atrocities committed during World War II, the United Nation Declaration of Human Rights expressed the rights to which all human beings are inherently entitled. More than fifty years later, human rights activists still work to insure that these rights are respected, and shine a spotlight when they are not. This episode explores the work done by these activists. Rights Reel looks at Haitian refugees held by the U.S. government at the military base in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; a video diary from the Palestinian occupied territories; and the witness program of the Lawyers Committee, which distributes video cameras to human rights activists around the world. Also included is a report on the UN Truth Commission on El Salvador and an interview with Eliot Abrams, a State Department official under President Reagan?
