Human Rights

We all have the right to live with dignity, regardless of our nationality, origin, race, colour, gender, language, religion, political or other views. Wherever they are in the world, everyone is entitled to education, clean water, sufficient food, safe shelter and freedom of expression. Authorities may not use violence against their citizens without justification. States have agreed with one another to guarantee these human rights for all. These are basic rights that form the basis for all government legislation and policy.

If you believe that the authorities are restricting your freedoms or treating you unlawfully, or if another person or organisation has caused you loss or injury, your human rights might have been breached. In that case we may be able to help you.
