Information on Human Rights:

Everyone is equal every man, woman and child- in all places and at all times. People from any country. No matter how big or small the person is, they are equal. Human rights are for all people. Every man or women has the right to leave their country and return. They have the right to have own thoughts, belief/ religion, own way of teaching and learning. Everyone should have freedom and the right to express their opinion and feelings\emotions. Everyone has the right to have privacy, family and home. They have a right to protect themselves from danger. Everyone has the right to choose what they want. No one should treat some one cruelly because of their looks, size, behavior or age without reason. No one owns another person and everyone should be kind to every human being or even animals. People should get equal wages for equal work. They are not the preserve of different cultures. They are not privileges only for people of higher ranks. They are for everyone. Now that you know more about human rights... We've done some research on our questions...

Answers on our essential questions:

Q1. How can we ensure all humans voice their opinions?

A1. Encourage them.By changing laws. By making them feel equal even people like slaves or refugees.

Q2. Who is in charge so that everyone can have their own opinion in their own country?

A2.According to the United Nations Declaration on Human Rights Defenders, human rights defenders (HRDs) are people who "individually or with others, act to promote or protect human rights". HRDs may defend human rights in either a professional or voluntary capacity. They are identified primarily by their actions, rather than by their occupation, job title or the organization they belong to. HRDs can thus include journalists exposing human rights violations, trade unionists defending workers’ rights or environmentalists highlighting the impact of development projects on indigenous peoples’ land rights. HRDs respect the universality and indivisibility of human rights: the notion that all human rights should be enjoyed by all people, regardless of gender, race, nationality, religion, sexual orientation or any other such distinction. HRDs are those who promote and protect human rights through peaceful, non-violent means.

Q3. Can we do anything to help and how?

Q5. How do people take away somebody else's right to voice their opinion and who?
