British actress Keira Knightley has joined the Amnesty International Protect The Human campaign by appearing in a rhyming video.

The 23-year-old actress in one of a number of celebrities – including Minnie Driver – who have appeared in a new short film for the organization to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the adoption of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) last week.

“I wanted to be part of this film for Amnesty to help raise awareness of the UDHR and to help them, in a small way, to campaign against the abuses of human rights that are still happening every day,” She said. “It seems that ‘human rights’ has become a bit of a loaded term in this country, but if you look at the declaration that countries made 60 years ago, it just sets out a series of basic rules about how people should treat each other. The UDHR is something that every one should be aware of and be proud of as a statement of our common humanity.”

The rhyming video – which also features Rosario Dawson – can be viewed here.
