Today in labor history, December 10, 1948: The United Nations adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which states, in part, that everyone has the right to good working conditions, equal pay for equal work, fair compensation, the right to form and join trade unions, and limited working hours.
The only reason Sonic wasn’t put in jail after Adventure 2 was because it would have been a PR disaster for GUN. They knew the people would be furious if they thanked him for saving the world by imprisoning him.
This is the case whether he cleared his name or not because he committed
crimes during the game, including but not necessarily limited to:
destruction of government property (the GUN robots), resisting arrest,
and vandalism (you know you destroyed cars in City Escape, don’t lie).
Patricia Cronin Shrine for Girls, 2015 installation inside the sixteenth-century Church of San Gallo, Venice presented by the Brooklyn Rail Curatorial Projects at the 56th Venice Biennale
In one shrine, an altar exhibits hijabs symbolizing the 276 schoolgirls kidnapped by Boko Haram in Nigeria and another alter is in remembrance of three women who were recently gang raped, murdered and left to hang from trees in India. Cronin’s memorial explores that even though the United Nations passed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948, women and girls around the world continue to be among the most vulnerable members of our global society.
The women discovered during their visit that women in the United States have “missing rights” compared to the rest of the world. For instance, the U.S. is one of three countries in the world that does not guarantee women paid maternity leave, according to the U.N. International Labour Organization. The U.N. suggests that countries guarantee at least 14 weeks of paid parental leave. Some countries go further – Iceland requires five months paid leave for each parent, and an additional two months to be shared between them.
