Now more than ever is really important remember the work of a great historical figure that has fought for his ideas: Nelson Mandela.


In an age where boundaries among Countries are becoming deep ruts that mark humanity, where differences among cultures and people are drawn as a wave of threat for the integrity of a Country, where social and ethnic prejudices reign supreme, is our duty remember who has fought for human rights, against racism and segregation, in favour of peace and equality.


Declared in 2009 by United Nations, Mandela Day is celebrated every 18 th of July, birthday of the South African activist.
Patient and determined man, Nelson Mandela was the symbol of anti-racism: he became the first black head of state of South Africa, he was the leader of anti-apartheid and thanks to him his Country became free and democratic.
While he was serving his life sentence in jail caused by his membership to the African National Congress, “Nalson Mandela Free” was shouted by many anti-apartheid activists.


In 1990 complaints were so powerful that freedom was restored to the one who lived and defended freedom.
In 1993, at the age of 74, Nelson Mandela won Nobel Peace Prize, not until received Sakharov Freedom of Tought Prize in 1998 and Lenin Peace Prize in 1990.


The name given at his birth was actually Rolihlahla that means “troublemaker” and not Nelson, given later at elementary school.
And after all, he caused trouble to the white domination government of South Africa, making people free from prejudice and evil, teaching the importance the defence of freedom of thought.


«I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society.»

 "Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home -- so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. [...] Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world." -- Eleanor Roosevelt

 

Today, December 10th, the International Human Rights Day occurs just as every year. It is an important day for human beings, all of them, and despite those rights  being also known as fundamental rights of every human being, men, women, children, without making differentiations based on race, gender, language, religion ... unfortunately they are not yet recognized as they should. That 10th of December 1948, when the United Nations Assembly proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which was drawn up by people with different and distant cultural backgrounds, we have been shown instead how we can be aware of what is right or wrong and how we can be united after a tragic and wearying event like World War II. This December 10th though adds something more; the Universal Declaration of Human Rights celebrates its 70th birthday. This merry event cheers us up a little and reminds us that this valuable document based on dignity, equality and respect towards and for all individuals, affects us closely and if we get to know it and appreciate it will empower us to assert our most important rights and values. The United Nations commemorates this day with numerous events around the world; from Europe to Africa, from the United States to Asia and back to South America. These events can be consulted on the website edited ad hoc by the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights - OHCHR - which promotes the 'Stand up 4 Human Rights' campaign which, in this digitalized era, has been diligently furnished with the related tag #Standup4humanrights. In Italy this day  will also be commemorated in 80 Italian cities by a torchlight procession organized by some of the major well known NGOs such as ActionAid, Amnesty International Italy, Caritas, EMERGENCY, Oxfam, which invite people to join the event which carries the title ‘Diritti a testa alta’, #Dirittiatestaalta, with the message that "today more than ever it is urgent to recover the principles of humanity and civil cohabitation that are the fundamentals of the Declaration and that the rhetoric of fear is trying to dismantle". The list of  the citys' squares is available at this link. We therefore welcome the invitation that the organizations from all over the world pass on to us; let’s use this day to think about the immense power that the Declaration bestows on humanity above all in the valorization of dignity.
