Our Human Rights was a monthly cable
tele-vision program about Taking Human Rights Action
produced and directed by Tolga Ors.
The objective of the Our Human Rights program is to motivate people
to take positive non-violent action in support of human rights. Programs
highlight how human rights abuses impact us all, and how preventing and
ending them is within our reach.
Human rights abuses, whether by
governments, non-state actors, businesses or individuals demand increased
vigilance. The strong influence of the U.S. government on human
rights will be the primary focus of Our Human Rights .
government support for and abuse of human rights impacts the safety of
American citizens as well as actions by the rest of the world, and is a
focus of great concern by
the human rights community.
The first Our Human Rights program
focuses on a critical human rights issue – Torture. The U.S.
government has stretched the definition of torture to include practices
that have been condemned by the United Nations and global public opinion.
The Stop Torture episode,
which takes place in the context of Torture Awareness month (June),
will explore how U.S. policies can be put on the right track to S top
Torture . The episode will feature the impact of torture, public
opinion and positive actions that can be taken by concerned
The second episode addresses domestic violence. In particular it provides information on how to report abuse and help domestic abuse survivors.
Human Rights focuses on the human rights policies of
the United States. There are other countries that are committing human rights abuses, however, considering the extent of U.S.
influence on many countries, U.S. policies in particular should be a
positive example for the world.
