The Price of Silence...

Don't Wait - Act Now!
In 1948 the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was created. As a document that is supposed to ensure equal rights to everyone regardless of "race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status", it still fails to be upheld even today in far too many countries around the world and billions are still denied the most basic rights. While looking around on Amnesty International's website the other day I found this video that takes 16 of the world's top musicians (some who have been denied basic rights themselves) to sing together to plea for peace for everyone. This video serves as a reminder that the longer we wait to act, the more harm that is done. As the song says, "The price of silence is much to high". Hope you like it!
