Creation note[edit]

This template was created from a section of the template:human rights (which had grown very large). At the moment, items on this template are still linked to template human rights, the intention is that the links to that on those pages, links to the human rights template be replaced with links to this template.

The links have been updated, although many pages listed on the template don't link to the template (as noted below). Zodon (talk) 00:16, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

i'm removing Human Rights First from this template. The template is clearly about human rights organisations which are international in who runs them e.g. membership and leadership and geographical location of offices. i see absolutely no claim at all in the HRF article that HRF is in any way international.

Clearly, HRF works on international HR issues. But so do probably about 2000 or so other notable human rights organisations around the world. We can't put all of them on this template... Boud (talk) 01:39, 26 March 2011 (UTC)
