Human Rights Poster Freedom of Religion

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.

I’ve decided to choose article 18 of our human rights, which is the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. In a highly material world it is easy to forget that the one thing you truly have that could not be physically touched are your thoughts and beliefs. It is important for others to maintain their own thoughts without having to worry about being controlled to think and act in a certain way against their will. This right lacks a presence in places such as the Middle East and North Korea. My idea for a poster is to create something that is universal and unite all differences using the common fist in air symbol to imply empowerment and included a few, but not all, religions that hold their own thoughts.
