For me, rights, humanity and dignity all connect together. People like having rights but in some quarters there’s a strong view that the human rights treaties and UK legislation aren’t important in protecting those rights. I hope in York we can show how rights can...
As we see human rights chipped away at, even disregarded entirely, in the world around us, it is time to stand up and fight back.
Human rights are important to me because they are about fairness, dignity and justice-the values I hold dear. They apply to everyone regardless of their religion, race, gender or sexuality. Yet, often we only learn to truly value human rights once we risk losing them.
