Helsinki Committee for Human Rights

Celebration of the World Day of Human Rights

Macedonia square in Skopje center, December 11, 2003, 12:00 noon.


The Universal Declaration for Human Rights was adopted on 10 December 1948. It is based on the faith in the dignity, equality and worth of the human person, formulated as a common standard of achievement for all peoples and nation, and starts from the supposition that disregard and contempt for human rights result is barbarous acts.


According to the Declaration ”All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights” and “ Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration.” “Everyone has the right to a social and international order in which rights and freedoms under this Declaration can be fully exercised.” No activities by individuals, groups or states, which violate the rights and freedoms under this Declaration, can be justified with the provisions contained therein.


“Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge”, and in light of the fact that many people in our country and worldwide are deprived of basic human rights, and considering that many people have not heard about this document and know very little of its contents and finally aware that human rights are used to disguise fights for some other goals and different ideals, we consider that it is necessary that we introduce ourselves better to these rights and freedoms in order to be able to exercise and protect them.




We call upon you to come to the Macedonia Square in Skopje (in front of the City Shopping Center) on 10 December 2003, at 12.00 hrs. to jointly mark the World Human Rights Day. Thus, we will demonstrate that we support the commitments contained in the Universal Declaration for Human Rights, that we are ready to exercise human rights and to respect the rights of the others, to stand up in their defense and fight for our and the rights of each person.



We will have fun
We will exchange views
We will share information

Job Vacancies

“Give pleasure to your boss!!!”
These days, a new commercial about a new coffee brand appeared on TV. I presume you’ve already seen it. A secretary slips when bringing coffee to her boss, slides down his desk on her stomach to stop in front of him with the coffee in her hand? I am not sure how you react to it, but after I had seen it for the first time I was left with my mouth open. It was a mixed feeling of bewilderment, sickness, disbelief…how could somebody think of something like that? How could nobody react to this commercial?
“Mesecina” and “Arka” work on registering adults
People are born for the second time after obtaining personal documents
Bari, Alisa, Dzejlan and a list of other names are just some of the examples for successful work of the Roma information centers of the humanitarian organization Mesecina from Gostivar. Despite being adults, they have recently been given their first birth certificate and have practically been born for the second time.
Civic resistance for the restarting of the melting plant in Veles

The event has a special purpose – collecting money for the Children Ward at the Town Hospital. The action was organized by the “Focus” Foundation, in cooperation with the municipality of Veles.
Expeditio, Kotor, Montenegro
Our vision is a quality space for better life
We decided to make an unusual interview with three people, as they themselves are unusual, as well as the association they are members of. Aleksandra Kapetanovic, Biljana Gligorovic and Tatjana Rajic are three young architects, who dedicate their creativity, knowledge and enthusiasm to cultural heritage, architecture, spatial planning and the civic sector in Montenegro, particularly focused on Boka Kotorska and its surroundings.

My attitude towards the language
“People who are of the same origin and who speak the same words and who live and make friends of each other, who have the same customs and songs and entertainment are what we call a nation, and the place where that people lives is called the people's country. Thus the Macedonians also are a nation and the place which is theirs is called Macedonia.”
Armenian community in the Republic of Macedonia
About 110 families cherish both the Armenian and the Macedonian culture
The genesis of the Armenian communities on the territory of today’s Macedonia goes back to the medieval times as can be proved by the numerous papers, traveling notes by foreign travelers who stayed or passed through the towns where among other nations, lived the Armenians.
