How many human rights are there
Mexico City, May 3, 2016 – Freedom of expression is a pillar of a country’s democracy. In Mexico, serious human rights violations do not exist if they are not spoken and voices of dissent can be silenced without consequence.
Reality is more powerful and overwhelming than any official discourse. However, immersed in a human rights crisis, society is witnessing the reduction of independent and inclusive spaces. Dissent becomes uncomfortable for the government, but it is indispensable to build an informed and critical society.
Journalists in regions of the country where the highest rate of aggressions is registered have found in self-censorship an effective measure of protection. Without guarantees to carry out their work, the press has given up freedom in favor of their safety. Silence hurts even more when impunity prevails in most cases of aggressions. Even so, in Veracruz, Mexico City, Puebla and Chihuahua, for example, journalists have created networks for self-protection and to raise their voices.

Taking into account the rapid advances in science and technology, which increasingly affect our conception of life and life itself, and which have brought with them a strong demand for a universal response to the ethical problems raised by these advances,
Recognizing that the ethical issues raised by the rapid advances in science and their technological applications must be considered in the light not only of the respect due to the dignity of the human person, but also of the universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms,
Resolving that it is necessary and desirable for the international community to establish universal principles as a basis for humanity’s response to the increasing dilemmas and controversies that science and technology pose to the human species and the environment, Resolving that it is necessary and desirable for the international community to establish universal principles as a basis for humanity’s response to the increasing dilemmas and controversies that science and technology pose to the human species and the environment,
