Description: The United Nations passed a resolution Friday requiring nations to comply with international law and to provide greater transparency when using drones. Sponsored by Pakistan, Yemen and Switzerland, the resolution did not mention any specific country, although the US carries out the vast majority of drone operations. This is the second setback for the US at the UN this week, as the Human Rights Committee released a report earlier in the week critical of the country over its mass surveillance practices, use of drone strikes, large prison population and the military's Guantanamo Bay facility. RT's Marina Portnaya examines both of these developments out of the UN in New York. Find RT America in your area: http://rt.com/where-to-watch/ Or watch us online: http://rt.com/on-air/rt-a...
Democracynow.org - Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the U.N. General Assembly on Monday before leaving the United States after a seven-day trip that focused primarily on strengthening commercial ties between the U.S. and India. More than 100 academics in the U.S. wrote a letter protesting Modi’s visit to Silicon Valley, warning tech giants of the dangers of doing business with a government that has "demonstrated its disregard for human rights and civil liberties, as well as the autonomy of educational and cultural institutions." Before his election, Modi had been barred from the United States for many years over his role in anti-Muslim riots in 2002 that left more than 1,000 dead in Gujarat, where he was chief minister. He has never apologized for or explained his actions at t...

For the first time ever the U.S. is coming under review by the U.N. Human Rights Council as the body continues to assess the performance of all the U.N members. The scrutiny won't be easy, as the list of concerns over its domestic and foreign human rights record continues to grow. To discuss this, RT talks to Chandra Bhat-Nagar from the American Civil Liberties Union in Geneva.
http://democracynow.org - As the Obama administration praises the benefits of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), backlash continues to grow against the deal. WikiLeaks has just published another section of the secret text — this one about public healthcare and the pharmaceutical industry. Newly revealed details of the draft show the TPP would give major pharmaceutical companies more power over public access to medicine, and weaken public healthcare programs. The leaked draft also suggests the TPP would prevent Congress from passing reforms to lower drug costs. One of the practices that would be allowed is known as "Evergreening." It lets drug companies extend the life of a patent by slightly modifying their product and then getting a new patent. We speak to Peter Maybarduk of Public Citi...

China’s approach to human rights is often criticized by overseas observers.

China published Tuesday a report on the United States' human rights situation. The report, titled "Human Rights Record of the United States in 2017," was released by the Information Office of the State Council, in response to the Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2017 issued by the US State Department on April 20 local time. China's report said the United States posed once again as "the guardian of human rights" and a self-styled "human rights judge" while its own human rights record remain tarnished and show continued deterioration.

The US turns a blind eye to human rights issues, seriously threatening the lives of its citizens, a Chinese report claims. The damning analysis of US human rights abuses is Beijing's retaliation to a Washington report decrying the Chinese government.

The human rights organization Amnesty International is criticizing the United States' record on human rights on the very day that the U.S. State Department releases its annual report on human rights abuses around the world. VOA's Elizabeth Lee has that story.
On December 10, the world will celebrate Human Rights Day. It marks the anniversary of the U.N. General Assembly's adoption, in 1948, of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Even though the United States is a democratic society with rights including speech, religion and equal justice before the law, some human rights activists say the U.S. is still guilty of human rights abuses. VOA's Elizabeth Lee has details.
This is the second time Kuwait's human rights record has been in the spotlight. It's first UPR review took place in May 2010. The working group will hear evidence from a number of sources, including human experts and other UN bodies. All 193 UN member states are scrutinised as part of the UPR process. As with Kuwait, they have all been subject to a first round of reviews and are now involved in a second cycle, which aims to highlight progress since earlier recommendations were made. The Kuwait delegation is headed by Hend Al-Subah, Minister of Social Affairs and Labour. "Kuwait has produced positive things from the (UN) recommendations and these have improved the human rights situation in the state, this in spite of the fact that basic human rights principles were already enshrined...
Sweden announced it will introduce a U.N. resolution on Iran's human rights record at the same time as its government is being ridiculed worldwide for selling out Iranian's women's rights in the recent visit of Swedish ministers to Tehran. In a statement that went viral on Twitter and Facebook, UN Watch, a non-governmental human rights NGO in Geneva, slammed Sweden's self-declared "first feminist government in the world" for having sacrificed its principles and betrayed the rights of Iranian women as trade minister Ann Linde and other female members walked before Iranian President Rouhani on Saturday wearing Hijabs, Chadors, and long coats indoors, all in deference to Iran's oppressive and unjust forced Hijab law — despite Stockholm's promise to promote "a gender equality perspective" int...
America has long been the self appointed global leader on human rights pointing out the shortcomings of others. But now the tables have turned. According to the United Nations Human Rights Council, incidents of injustice are taking place on US soil. The point was made in Geneva, Switzerland as Human Rights council in its first comprehensive review of Washington's record. The council released a Universal Periodic Review Tuesday, listing 228 recommendations on how the US can do better in practicing what it preaches.
"We thought we were going to attend a UN meeting and we witnessed a racist hate fest instead". Anti-Semitic slogans, flyers praising Hitler to come back from the dead, fundamentalist propaganda... These are images that have haunted many NGOs since the 2001 Durban Conference in South Africa. It all happened a week before 9/11... As the United States waged war against terrorism and deserted UN regulations, Asian and African states took hold of the majority in the new Human Rights Council created in 2006. For the first time, a documentary says what is going on in Geneva’s UN premises. It is explaining what became of the 1948 Universal Declaration on Human Rights. What we discover there seems very far from the miraculous consensus orchestrated by Eleanor Roosevelt 60 years ago. Nowadays, the C...

http://www.democracynow.org - Human Rights Watch, one of the world's largest and most influential human rights organizations, is facing an unusual amount of public criticism. Two Nobel Peace Prize laureates, Adolfo Pérez Esquivel and Mairead Maguire, and a group of over 100 scholars have written an open letter criticizing what they describe as a revolving door with the U.S. government that impacts HRW''s work in certain countries, including Venezuela. The letter urges HRW to bar those who have crafted or executed U.S. foreign policy from serving as staff, advisors or board members. Human Rights Watch Executive Director Kenneth Roth has defended his organization's independence, responding: "We are careful to ensure that prior affiliations do not affect the impartiality of Human Rights Watch...

US Human Rights Report has condemned Iran, China, Russia and North Korea for human rights violations. And Washington has signaled out all 4 states as being the center of instability.

"Man shall not live by bread alone
Lay not up your treasures upon earth"
Thousands listen to the master's words
Thrown to the wind 'cause their hearts were not present
People don't believe in miracles anymore
"Some foreign organization might be supporting you"
Lights, camera, stampede and looting
The powerful men and the saints wanted the leader
(Where are the) Human Rights?
The followers lost faith
Many who dreamt of power are destroyed
The press is a daily vampire
Street kids steal and they are mistaken
For the apostoles
During the riot an extermination group of policemen shoot
Lords and slaves want everything easily
Clubbing and kicking
