On Friday, December 9, 2011, victims of the cholera that United Nations (UN) troops introduced to Haiti demonstrated at the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH) base in St. Marc to demand that the UN respond justly to the cholera epidemic.

The demonstration coincides with Human Rights Day 2011, the 63rd anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR). The UDHR enshrines people’s basic human rights, including the rights to life, health, and a just remedy for violations of these rights. The UDHR declares that these rights are “universal.” Cholera victims remind the UN that “universal” human rights belong to Haitians too.
