Exercising Human Rights needs to be Protected.
No to Having Prisoners of Conscience (See Note 1)
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere”
The detention of any prisoner of conscience by any system of government violates the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. All prisoners of conscience are essentially trying to exercise their rights to freedom of expression, association, assembly, and/or movement. Viewed from this perspective, the immediate and unconditional release of all prisoners of conscience needs to be given high consideration and firmly demanded (See Note 2).
To embrace our common humanity as the primary moral imperative (the moral obligation and responsibility as well), the eloquent words of Nobel Laureate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the celebrated poetic words of Persian/Iranian poet Saadi come to mind that still stand to captivate and inspire millions around the world:
“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
“Of one Essence is the human race,
Thusly has Creation put the Base;
One Limb impacted is sufficient,
For all Others to feel the Mace.”
