Although they are too young to remember the twenty-seven years when the Berlin Wall separated families and prevented East Germans from access to the West, these youngsters know that when the Wall came down in 1989, that act became a symbol of freedom prevailing over oppression.
Youth for Human Rights and the Church of Scientology International have created thirty hard-hitting public service announcements (PSAs) to bring each of the 30 Articles of the Universal Declaration to life, to educate youth on their rights and responsibilities. Four of these PSAs were released in the German leg of the World Tour including, appropriately, Article 9, which states:
“No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.”
The purpose of Youth for Human Rights International is: “To teach youth around the globe about Human Rights, thus helping them to become valuable advocates for the promotion of tolerance and peace.”
