International Human Rights Summit in Geneva calls for worldwide implementation of the UDHR
A spectacular flag display performed by youth delegates representing 26 countries opened the 6th Annual International Human Rights Summit in Geneva, Switzerland, home of the United Nations Office of Human Rights.

09.02.2009 – Attended by human rights advocates, officials, diplomatic corps and NGOs, the three-day Summit was opened by president and founder of Youth for Human Rights International, Dr. Mary Shuttleworth, key organizer of the three-day conference, and co-organizer Mr. Adalbert Nouga of non-governmental organization Village Suisse. Both highlighted the purpose of the Summit aimed at youth representatives: to increase awareness of human rights and the use of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as the tool to resolve human rights violations.

The Summit premiered the international release of "The Story of Human Rights," a striking new short film produced with the support of the Human Rights Department of the Church of Scientology International. The documentary defines in simple terms the subject of human rights. Shuttleworth said the film is "a gift to the millions on all continents, out to the far corners of the world, as was the vision of Eleanor Roosevelt." Roosevelt was one of the authors and chief proponents of the 30-article Declaration, spearheading its adoption by the United Nations General Assembly in 1948.

Was this film actually produced by scientology, or did they just say "We suppport this film" to try to take credit for it, while having nothing actually to do with the making of it?  Much like they do with their Volunteer Ministers as disaster sites?

And I assume the "Human Rights department" of the CoS must mean CCHR?
