FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Police Cadets Learn the Rights They are Sworn to Protect

CHOCÓ, COLOMBIA • JUN 7, 2016

Youth for Human Rights Colombia brings human rights to life for their nation’s police.

Police take an oath to protect the peace, freedom and rights of the people they serve. But to do so, they need to understand what this means on a very practical level. And this is particularly true in Colombia—a country where human rights were cast aside by both sides of their bitter and protracted civil war.

According to Colombia’s National Centre for Historical Memory, some 220,000 people, most of them civilians, died in the conflict between 1958 and 2013. And just between 1985 and 2012, the war forced another five million civilians from their homes.

Youth for Human Rights Colombia is working with police leadership to instill an understanding and appreciation of human rights in police trainees and to see that they grasp it is their responsibility to see that these rights are upheld. They are doing so by conducting educational programs on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

According to Colombia Reports, “indigenous and AfroColombian minorities have been hit hardest by the conflict that’s been waging in Colombia since 1964.”

Most of the AfroColombians, the descendants of African slaves brought by the Spanish colonizers, and more than half the Native American Emberá people, live in the northwest of the country in the department of Chocó. That department also has the lowest standard of living in Colombia.

It was here in the town of Yutro that the Colombia chapter of Youth for Human Rights delivered a seminar to 120 police cadets. They presented a copy of the Youth for Human Rights Educator’s Guide to the commanding officer of the school so these and other police students may be trained in the thirty fundamental rights that form the basis for a democratic society.

Youth for human rights is also working with the military to eradicate the kind human rights abuse that has plagued the nation for nearly 60 years.

Lt. Colonel Anstrongh Polania, Chief of the Department of Joint Operational Law, Ministry of Defense, adopted the Youth for Human Rights curriculum and saw to the training of the entire Colombian Army on the program. Last July, at the grand opening of the Church of Scientology of Bogotá, he described the Youth for Human Rights curriculum as “a program that, in a clear and understandable way, teaches the importance of respecting human rights.” Since implementing this curriculum, the incidence of Army human rights violations dropped by 98 percent.

The Church of Scientology supports Youth for Human Rights. Scientologists on six continents engage in collaborative efforts with government agencies and nongovernmental organizations to bring about broad-scale awareness and implementation of the 1948 United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the world’s premier human rights document.

The Scientology religion was founded by author and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. The first Church of Scientology was formed in Los Angeles in 1954 and the religion has expanded to more than 11,000 Churches, Missions and affiliated groups, with millions of members in 167 countries.

Why would they? And how would they know about such sites?

Perhaps most importantly, many, if not most, of then probably don't read English.

Fair question and comment. My comment was made to get myself and possibly others to think of ways to reach those cadets. ..the ones that are not already reached by the internet already. I would imagine that a few of them do speak and read English. And in addition to that there is the not so good, but still somewhat helpful google translate etc.. even facebook is now providing a click away translation of all postings.

They speak Spanish, the #2 language in the world by number of speakers (English is #3):

Maybe someone who speaks better Spanish than the 20 words I do could research what happens when a Spanish-speaking person Googles Scientology (or Scientologie or Scientologia or whatever it is).

They are doing so by conducting educational programs on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

. . .

Excerpted from said Declaration, at http://www.un.org/en/universal-declaration-human-rights :

. . .

Article 4.

No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

Article 5.

No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.

. . .

Article 12.

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary interference with his privacy, family, home or correspondence, nor to attacks upon his honour and reputation. Everyone has the right to the protection of the law against such interference or attacks.

. . .

Article 18.

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Article 19.

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

Article 20.

(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association.

. . .

Article 24.

Everyone has the right to rest and leisure, including reasonable limitation of working hours and periodic holidays with pay.

Article 25.

(1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
(2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.


I am not quoting this to debate its general merits or otherwise, but to show how hypocritical the cult is in pushing it when it falls short on many of its points in its treatment of staff and public.
