Welcome to National Human Rights Community
Human Rights mean the right relating to life, liberty, equality and dignity of the indivual granted by the constitution or embodied in the International Convents. Human Rights are consumed with equality and fairness. They recognise our freedom to make choices about our life and develop our potential as human beings. They are about living a life free from fear, harassment or discrimination.
There are a number of basic rights that people from around the world have agreed on, such as the right to life, freedom from torture and other cruel and inhuman treatment, rights to a fair trial, free speech and freedom of religion, rights to health, education and an adequate standard of living.
These human rights are the same for all people everywhere – male and female, young and old, rich & poor, regardless of our background, where we live, what we think or what we believe. This is what makes human rights ‘universal’.
Rights also describe what is lawful – that is, some rights may be laid down in law. If you have a legal right to something, you may be able to defend it in court.
In many situations, though, rights exist but are not converted by law. These rights are often called moral rights and are based on people’s sense of what is fair or just.
