this does not mean that it cannot be accepted as law and in that case, it would still be called a declaration but the further action enacting it into law would clarify that point. Can you find anything stating this declaration has been adopted as law by any nation?
Now, go back to the actual declaration.However, declarations are not always legally binding. The term is often deliberately chosen to indicate that the parties do not intend to create binding obligations but merely want to declare certain aspirations. An example is the 1992 Rio Declaration. Declarations can however also be treaties in the generic sense intended to be binding at international law. It is therefore necessary to establish in each individual case whether the parties intended to create binding obligations.
Note the bolded. It specifically states this is a suggestion, or direction that all should follow. Nowhere does it state it is intended to be or be considered to become a law.Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms,
Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge,
Now, Therefore THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY proclaims THIS UNIVERSAL DECLARATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and all nations, to the end that every individual and every organ of society, keeping this Declaration constantly in mind, shall strive by teaching and education to promote respect for these rights and freedoms and by progressive measures, national and international, to secure their universal and effective recognition and observance, both among the peoples of Member States themselves and among the peoples of territories under their jurisdiction.
To make this a bit easier for you; show me a law, either an international law or a law of a foreign government that the citizens of the US are required to observe while in the US and not dealing with any foreign government or situation.
I was just reading the declaration you have so much respect for. I don't know if you ahve read it or not. I would really love to see you get this enforced:
I do not get any paid holidays and I would love to have them. can you get that strightened out for me because as it stands, the federal DOL and my states DOL do not seem to think I have to be paid for holidays. Dang, they don't even think I have a right to a limitation on the amount of hours I work each week.Article 24.
- Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay.
PLease, please, please get this taken care of for me.
If you want, I can find at least 20 items in that declaration that are not observed by some country in the world. I think you have your work cut out for yourself in getting this taken care of. Hop to it.
Dang, I went back to reading it and I see a lot of problems you need to take care of. Here is another one:
Since we have starvation in this country and many people die because they cannot afford medical treatment, this is obviously a violation of this "law". I got more work coming for ya. Let me know when you have this part taken care of.
- (1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
- (2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.
Dang, I just can't stop finding things being ignored in our country. I am sure they are being ignored in others as well.
right now, there are about 3.7 million people that are unemployed that would like to have employment. Since this is against the law, we really need you to take care of it. I guess this has just slipped by our president. I know he is real busy with everything but they say the economy is his most pressing and urgent situation to deal with. Maybe you could call him and tell him that, by law, everybody MUST be employed if they want to be employed. I think he would be relieved to hear that and make sure the world courts would see to it that everybody was given their jobs back.Article 23.
- (1) Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favourable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.
