Munich, Germany, December 11, 2008--A woman packed into a transparent suitcase bearing a label that says "Stop Human Trafficking!" rides on the luggage belt at Munich Airport.

Human rights group Amnesty International staged the action to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Initially adopted by 48 countries in the United Nations General Assembly on December 10, 1948, the document was based on France's Declaration of the Rights of Man and the United States' Declaration of Independence.
