Freedom of Religion Denied

25 agosto 2020

Messaggio del Segretario Generale dell’ONU, António Guterres, in occasione della Giornata di commemorazione per le vittime di atti di violenza per ragioni di religione o di credo (22 agosto 2020). The right to freedom of religion or belief is firmly trenched in international human rights law and is a cornerstone for inclusive, prosperous and peaceful societies. Yet across the world, we continue to witness deep-seated discrimination against religious minorities, attacks on people and religious sites, and hate crimes and atrocity crimes targeting populations simply because of their religion or belief.
