  3. Various shots: Inside room 20 participants
  4. Soundbite (English)— Volker Türk, High Commissioner for UN Human Rights: In the ashes of global warfare, it brought hope. To put an end to cycles of bloodshed, it promised justice.  It promised development that would be secure, equitable; inclusive.  It set out the path to peace.”
  5. Cutaways: room 20
  6. Soundbite (English)— Volker Türk, High Commissioner for UN Human Rights: But alongside the progress that has transformed many of our societies, there have also been numerous failures to uphold human rights over the past 75 years.  We live among many such failures today – with the turmoil and suffering that they produce.”
  7. Cutaways: room 20
  8. Soundbite (English)— Volker Türk, High Commissioner for UN Human Rights: War: my thoughts go to the millions of people suffering unbearably in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, notably in Gaza, and Israel; in Sudan; Ukraine; Myanmar; and so many other places.  Famine.  Oppressive and hateful discrimination.  Repression and persecution.  Threats to human rights generated by climate change, pollution and biodiversity loss.”
  9. Cutaways: room 20
  10. Soundbite (English)— Volker Türk, High Commissioner for UN Human Rights: ““It was drawn up at a time of horror, after the most monstrous mass killing the world has ever known, in the form of the Holocaust – and with the knowledge that total destruction was growing closer. It has demonstrated its power and efficacy over decades. It bridges every sector of Government action and field of human endeavour.”
  11. Cutaways: room 20
  12. Soundbite (English)— Volker Türk, High Commissioner for UN Human Rights: At a time of so little solidarity, and so much divisive and short-sighted vision, I view it as a call to overcome polarisation. A call to work, with courage and principles, together, to resolve the huge challenges that we face.”
  13. Cutaways: room 20
  14. Soundbite (English)— Volker Türk, High Commissioner for UN Human Rights: A call to hark back to the spirit that led every Member State to adopt the Universal Declaration, and to base local, national and global decisions, across all areas of policy, on the intrinsic, and equal, value of every human life”
  15. Cutaways: room 20
