Human rights group

Human rights organizations are organizations that fight against human rights violations. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights plays a significant role in their work. Human rights organizations try to influence by organizing rallies, protest letters or press releases political processes or to set in motion at about detention of political prisoners, the threat of capital punishment or persecution of ethnic minorities.

Human rights organizations are usually non-governmental organizations, like, for example, civil rights movements. ( In a narrower sense, the term " human rights " is understood as an antonym to " civil rights ", since it concerns the basic rights that all people are entitled, regardless of nationality. ) In general, they are through donations, volunteer members and through the intercession of prominent sponsors supported.
