Charter of HRAI
History will remember those who selflessly give all they can to attain freedom and prosperity for the mankind. Ignorance of human rights, negligence towards the principles governing those rights, and complete disregard of their importance only bring about misery for the masses and corruption of governments. We hold this fact to be self evident that wherever human dignity, honor and rights are violated, it is our duty to rise up immediately and fight back until such time as the wrong is set right once again.
