This double DVD is a selected document of the recitations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and marks a half way point in the artist's project; the Anniversary series, which began in response to the shooting of Jean Charles de Menezes by police in London in July 2005.

This is a signed, limited edition print (edition of 150) containing the entire text of rights repeated.
