Human rights part.2

June 5, 2019

When talking about human rights, we have the perspective of individual liberties which are the essence of humanity. They are free from external restraints in their exercise and are considered to be outside the province of a government  control. They range from the liberty to move freely, the right to a fair trial, the protection against servitude, the right to seek asylum, to get marry etc...Eight articles in particular highlight such liberties.

Let's see few examples of articles :

 
Article 2.

Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status. Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.

 

Article 4.
No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms.

 
Article 7.
All are equal before the law and are entitled without any discrimination to equal protection of the law. All are entitled to equal protection against any discrimination in violation of this Declaration and against any incitement to such discrimination.
 
Article 8.
Everyone has the right to an effective remedy by the competent national tribunals for acts violating the fundamental rights granted him by the constitution or by law.
 
Article 10.
