This is a piece of what´s all about: tasking in lunchrooms!
The Declaration wasn´t this sad before...

I had to study this in Law, it's a really interesting document with lots of implications for criminal law. I intend to post it up in my shared kitchen and the restaurant at University, these are lunch rooms, no?

Those are lunchrooms, yes.

Also, thanks for reminding me about this.

When I was a junior in high school there was a copy affixed to my backpack to piss off people of a certain political bent.

i believe theres some kind of implication that if they remove it they /will/ be put on trial. forgive me my ignorance, but is it illegal to remove the declaration of human rights if its put up?

What if you work for and with people who wouldn't remove it?

The various posters and fliers businesses are obliged to display (at least in the US/Cali/SF: minimum wage, grievances, etc) have always given me a weird feeling. They're a reminder that you're on the weak side of a power relationship, even if you like your job/boss/HR person/whatever. To the extent that the Declaration is a similar reminder of this, I think it would still be interesting to see how that affects one's perception of working for/with yourself/friends.

I plan to do this soon. My theory is that everyone at my work will assume someone above them put it there and it isn't their place to remove it. I'm fairly certain that neither the Library Board members nor the Library Director ever go in the lunch room. We shall soon find out.

Article 12

If you think about it, every time you eavesdrop, you violate it. I mean, "because I was curious" is about as arbitrary as it gets.

My original intent...

My original intent when I posted this was to see these put up next to the other HR notices about worker rights that employers must post, usually in lunch rooms.

I have to admit, some of the creative interpretations of this task have been amazing. The Dutch/French version on a dictator monument was an amazing way to spruce up that monument.

Dutch and French versions to follow. So I've had to modify this task somewhat due to the fact that I am not currently working due to an ongoing completion of a different task. There are few real monsters in the history of humanity. Most atrocitie...

Two weeks ago, during my ten minute break (what else am I supposed to do on a ten effing minute break?) I posted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in the Public Library faculty lounge in Northlake, IL. I trusted that from then on out they wo...

4 October 2009. 9:19 p.m.: In a good-spirited gesture in support of Human Rights, I'm printing this document. I'm not sure if the paper on which I am printing this was made in such a way that infringes upon the rights in said document, but if it was,...

It took me three days to complete this task. I am sitting here in my office, on a Saturday. Thank you sf0. Thank you Artificial Inanity for pushing my already restless self this far. But let me start at the beginning and everything else follow. Whe...

Insert camera disclaimer here. Yes my pictures are backwards, yes it's lame. sorry guys. Sooooooooooooo to the task! By lucky happenstance, there was a bake sale with these and brownies for $1 donation. I gladly enjoyed the food and pocked a few ...

For the past FOUR (FRIGGIN YEARS???) I've been mostly M.I.A. on here - and I'd like to think I have some half-way decent reasons including working (one of my dream jobs) as a Biologist. Certainly a lot else has changed but that's neither here nor the...

Put up the declaration in two places of my local mensa. While at it, I also put up some nice Loesje posters. UPDATE: After more than a year one of the declarations is still completely there :)

I saw this task when I first joined SF0 and loved it. I used to be involved in Amnesty; the idea of inalienable rights as belonging to all persons regardless of country, race, religion, gender, etc is near and dear. One problem: I am currently a grad...
