United Nations Human Rights
This review was made public on May 11, 2015 by the United Nations Human Rights Commission. At first glance, it looks very dull, but pay close attention to the questions being asked by other countries (“Questions submitted in advance” and the addendum) as it pertains to Human Rights violations in the United States.
