Thailand has joined the worldwide celebrations of Human Rights Day by organizing an event under the theme “Reform Thailand: Understand Human Rights.”

The Office of the National Human Rights Commission of Thailand (NHRC) organized the event on 10 December—the annual Human Rights Day—at the Chaeng Watthana Government Complex. Highlight of the event was a presentation of human rights awards won by 19 individuals and organizations with an outstanding record in promoting and protecting human rights in Thailand.

NHCR Chairman Professor Amara Pongsapich said Thailand always ensured that human rights were recognized and respected, as seen in many political situations over the past few years. The NHCR successfully campaigned for human rights in Thailand since Thai people now realized the importance of human rights better. Thailand was committed to further improve the human rights situation and it was on its way to a better, equal society, said the chairman.

There were exhibitions by national organizations and international foundations on human rights during the event. There were also performances by the Wheelchair Dancers—the winners of the Thailand’s Got Talent season 4, the famous “Hope” folk band and “Hua Jai Sing” band.
