Human Rights international social situation has a “double” life: the real and the imaginary. All around

the world, although all statistics and problems known and denounced, Human Rights are being

violated, there are serious and dangerous situations to the Humanity, affecting millions of human

beings beside the “images”/information published. The Education for Human Rights is the change key

but this is a complex process that should be object of an intervention through the International,

Regional and National authorities (governmental and non-governmental Institutions and

Organizations), as well as, by everyone in their capacities, and, their social, professional and citizenship

responsibility. Nowadays the World have an enormous and different legal instruments, laws and

documents, but there are too many people without access to their Rights, living supported by the

information manipulated with consequences that History showed as worried consequences for

societies and generations. As the study case presents, Portugal is a great example of the rhetoric

manipulation by the political power, developed by an authoritarian regime, with unreal images

generated social isolation and violence. However, despite the democracy and four decades, the

Portuguese need to develop their knowledge to face the Human Rights violations and know to prevent

other problems. There is still an imaginary world completely different from realities we need to change

to protect and promote the Human Rights for everyone.
