Anyone and everyone can make a difference when it comes to human rights.

That's the message behind a new UN campaign launched on Human Rights Day, celebrated every year on 10 September.

It commemorates the day in 1948 when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Laurent Sauveur from the UN Human Rights Office (OHCHR) explained to Daniel Johnson how people can get involved in The Stand Up For Someone's Rights Today campaign.
