How Global Leaders Are Failing Human Rights | NYT Opinion

65 Views · Published on Mon, 06 May 2019 · INTERNET TV CLIPS

It used to be that human rights abuses were called out and many were stopped. Violators had something to fear. But today, the silence of those public officials is astounding. In this video Op-Ed above, the former U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein, argues that world leaders are weak, shortsighted and mediocre, and no longer willing or able to defend human rights. Probable genocide in Myanmar, imprisonment of journalists in Egypt and their murder in Turkey, authoritarian-minded leaders elected in Brazil, Hungary, India, Russia, Italy and Austria, oppression in China, Cambodia, Venezuela, children separated from their parents and locked up right here in Trump’s America. That's without mentioning North Korea. The worst human rights offenders are able to act with complete impunity.
