United Nations on promoting the “kinship of all human beings”
“The Universal Declaration of Human Rights empowers us all. The principles enshrined in the Declaration are as relevant today as they were in 1948. We need to stand up for our own rights and those of others. We can take action in our own daily lives, to uphold the rights that protect us all and thereby promote the kinship of all human beings.” – United Nations manifesto on the purpose of celebrating “Human Rights Day” each year on 10 December

From the “United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples”:
“Indigenous peoples are equal to all other peoples, while recognizing the right of all peoples to be different, to consider themselves different, and to be respected as such […] all peoples contribute to the diversity and richness of civilizations and cultures, which constitute the common heritage of hu- mankind […] all doctrines, policies and practices based on or advocating superiority of peoples or individuals on the basis of national origin or racial, religious, ethnic or cultural differences are racist, scientifically false, legally invalid, morally condemnable and socially unjust, Reaffirming that indigenous peoples, in the exercise of their rights, should be free from discrimination of any kind.”
