The Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Read these five clauses from the Declaration of Human Rights.

Which one do you think is the most important?

Do we have them in our country?

  • The Right to Equality. We are all born free. We all have our own thoughts and ideas. We should all be treated in the same way.
  • The Right to Trial. If we are put on trial this should be in public. The people who try us should not let anyone tell them what to do.
  • The Right to Marriage and Family. Every grown-up has the right to marry and have a family if they want to. Men and women have the same rights when they are married, and when they are separated.
  • The Right to Freedom of Thought. We all have the right to believe in what we want to believe, to have a religion, or to change it if we want.
  • The Right to Education. Education is a right. Primary school should be free. We should learn about the United Nations and how to get on with others. Our parents can choose what we learn.
