Dec 08, 2023, 02:00 PM

Every December 10th, the world marks Human Rights Day, and this year is the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights—which is one of the first documents drafted by the United Nations that decreed, in writing, that “All people are born free and equal”.

On this episode of #ConsiderThis Melisa Idris speaks to Katrina Jorene Maliamauv, Executive Director of Amnesty International Malaysia.
