We are all free and equal. We are all born free. We all have our own thoughts and ideas. We should all be treated in the same way.

임을 위한 행진곡

Im-eul Wi-han haeng-jin-gok

사랑도 명예도 이름도 남김없이
Sa-rang-do meong-ae-do i-rum-do nam-kim-eob-si

한평생 나가자던 뜨거운 맹세
Han-peong-saeng na-ga-ja-den ddeu-geo-un maeng-se

동지는 간데 없고 깃발만 나부껴
Dong-ji-nun gan-dea eob-go gi-bbal-man na-bu-ggeo

새날이 때까지 흔들리지 말자
Sae-nal-i ol ddae-gga-ji heun-deul-li-ji mal-ja

세월은 흘러가도 산천은 안다
Sea-wueol-eun heul-leo-ga-do san-cheon-eun an-da

깨어나서 외치는 뜨거운 함성
Ggae-eo-na-seo oi-chi-neun ddeu-geo-eun ham-seong

앞서서 나가니 산자여 따르라
Ab-seo-seo na-ga-ni san-ja-yeo dda-leu-la

앞서서 나가니 산자여 따르라
Ab-seo-seo na-ga-ni san-ja-yeo dda-leu-la

This is an abridged version of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations in 1948. Although the Declaration, which comprises a broad range of rights, is not a legally binding document, it has inspired more than 60 human rights instruments which together constitute an international standard of human rights. These instruments include the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, both of which are legally binding treaties. Together with the Universal Declaration, they constitute the International Bill of Rights. For the full text of the Declaration from the United Nations website, go to

Irom Sharmila Video

Irom Sharmila is a young woman of Manipur who has been on a fast-to-death for nearly 7 years now. She has been demanding the removal of a brutal law from her land. Manipur is a north-east Indian state (bordering Myanmar), riven for decades by insurgency and armed separatist movements. The Government of India has attempted to control the situation militarily, granting drastic powers to the security forces. The Armed Forces (Special Powers) Act enforced in the region lets people be arrested, shot and even killed - on suspicion alone. But Sharmila is willing to stake everything -- even her life -- to restore justice and dignity to her people.
