International Human Rights Day – Nelson Mandela

As the world pays tribute to Nelson Mandela, it is somewhat fitting that the celebration of his life takes place today on the International Human Rights Day. If ever there was a person who symbolised the struggle for Human Rights, Nelson Mandela is that person!

Coincidentally, 10 December 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of the Nobel Peace Prize Award Ceremony when Nelson Mandela and Frederik Willem de Klerk received their Nobel Peace Prize medals.  A short video of the ceremony is available at: http://www.nobelprize.org/mediaplayer/index.php?id=1854
