MPR: 60th anniversary of the UDHR
12/11/2008 9:31 AM

Listen to Robin Phillips discuss human rights on MPR's Midmorning.

Three decades ago the United Nations adopted a document that was first worldwide proclamation that individuals have a right to live without being oppressed by their governments. Despite wars and use of torture in the name of cracking down on terrorism, human rights groups say governments do feel the pressure to stop oppressing people.
