The United Nations was set up to preserve human rights and promote global citizenship. The UK was a founding member and is a holding member. It is incumbent upon us all to stand up for the rights, articles, charters, resolutions and regulations enshrined in the UN charter to maintain international peace and uphold international law. We must promote universal respect for human rights. These alleged brutalities cannot be ignored therefore we call upon UK government to act to sustain global goals.
