Church of Scientology Spreads Human Rights Message in Denmark

February 5, 2009



LOS ANGELES (RushPRNews) 02/05/09-- The Church of Scientology of Copenhagen teamed up with the national chapter of Youth for Human Rights International, the Network against Racism and Artists for Peace, with an event last month marking the culmination of a nation-wide contest for youth called the "Human Rights Through Art Project."Denmark is a country known throughout the world for its commitment to human rights and religious tolerance. In commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the "Human Rights through Art Project" was established to increase awareness of human rights and raise the bar on tolerance.

The event was held at the Art Hall of Copenhagen. Finalists included three fine arts projects, two musical/singing performances and a dance creation.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted and proclaimed on December 10, 1948, by the General Assembly of the United Nations. Following this historic act the Assembly called upon all member countries to publicize the Declaration and "to cause it to be disseminated, displayed, read and expounded principally in schools and other educational institutions, without distinction based on the political status of countries or territories."
