Human rights are rights and freedoms that we all have, regardless of race, sex, nationality, ethnicity, language, religion, or any other status.

Our rights have been agreed by the member nations of the United Nations Organisation, which worked together after the second world war, in an effort to ensure that the excesses of those in power could never lead to such atrocities ever happening again.

These Rights and Freedoms were first expressed in a document called “The Universal Declaration of Human Rights”

Human rights include the right to life and liberty, freedom from slavery and torture, freedom of opinion and expression, the right to work and education, and many more.  Everyone is entitled to these rights, without discrimination.
