Celebrating the Importance of Human Rights this December Human rights: they are the basic freedoms that everyone on this planet deserves for the duration of their entire life. Human rights are based on values like equality, respect, and independence. These rights protect us and allow us to have our own opinions, education, privacy, family life, and demand respect for a good quality of life.
