Celebrating 75 Years of Human Rights: Scientology Network's Marathon for Peace

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a milestone document that proclaimed the inalienable rights to which every individual is inherently entitled. In a world where 32 countries are embroiled in conflict, with drug wars, ethnic violence, and human trafficking on the rise, the importance of promoting and safeguarding these rights is more crucial than ever.

The Peace Bell was donated by the United Nations Association of Japan in 1954. It has become tradition to ring the bell twice a year: on the first day of spring, at the Vernal Equinox, and on 21 September to celebrate the International Day for Peace.
