Human rights are the fundamental freedoms and protection that each of us is entitled to.

All human beings are born with equal and innate rights and fundamental freedoms. Human rights are based on dignity, equality and mutual respect - regardless of nationality, religion or worldview.

Your rights are to be treated fairly and to treat others fairly and to be able to make decisions about your own life. These basic human rights are:

Universal - you belong to all of us, to everyone in the world.
Inalienable - you cannot be taken from us.
Indivisible and interdependent - governments should not be able to choose what is respected.
