United Nations Human Rights website - was www.unhchr.ch - but now claims "directory browsing is not allowed". However, since when is linking to www.unhchr.ch directory browsing?!

Director General of Human Rights - was www.humanrights.coe.int

United Nations www.un.int - Pending possible removal? If the UN adopts a policy of imposing religious censorship, against free speech, this link will be removed, and the UN could be reclassified as AGAINST HUMAN RIGHTS. See http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=ISO-8859-1&q=%22united+nations%22+and+islam . Well, we'll see. Hopefully the UN has more sense!

Some of the links that were on here have been moved to the Libertarian Contacts Page. Recommended!

Especially, considering Juan Carlos González Leiva is being imprisoned and mistreated in Cuba on the basis of being "a terrorist", how about some news on the concentration camp run by the USA in Cuba? Psychological torture is evident from the news footage, and the same excuse "we can mistreat them because we call them terrorists" is being used. It's a bit dodgy having a concentration camp for political prisoners, don't you think?

* HUMAN rights? Obviously the rights also apply to all sentient beings, whether human, alien, or cyborg. Aliens visiting the planet Earth should have "human rights" extended to them. Cyborgs, whether a result of creation of new artificial consciousnesses, or by the resurrection of previously-human personages, should also have human rights in the same way as the people who are made of biological matter.
