Walk, co-sponsored by Scientology-supported human rights initiative, held in December 2013, mobilizes youth to defend the rights of others.

Copenhagen youth joined in the city’s fifth annual Walk for Human Rights in December 2013 to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights

Copenhagen youth joined in the city’s fifth annual Walk for Human Rights in December to celebrate the 65th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Beginning in the center of Copenhagen at Vesterbro Torv, youth marched to the StreetMekka indoor sports complex where they gathered for a human rights rally and musical festival.

Those attending the event traced their hands and wrote personal human rights messages on a large mural to affirm their commitment to making human rights a fact.

Scientologists on five continents engage in collaborative efforts with government agencies and nongovernmental organizations to bring about broad-scale awareness and implementation of the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the world’s premier human rights document.

The Church of Scientology has published a brochure, Scientology: How We Help—United for Human Rights, Making Human Rights a Global Reality, to meet requests for more information about the human rights education and awareness initiative the Church supports.

Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote, “Human rights must be made a fact, not an idealistic dream,” and the Scientology religion is based on the principles of human rights. The Code of a Scientologist calls on all members of the religion to dedicate themselves “to support true humanitarian endeavors in the fields of human rights.”
