Human Rights

Today, Helen from Amnesty International, came to our class. 
She talked about human rights and child poverty. Most children have rights. Here is a human right.
‘Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedoms to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.’ (Article 19 - Universal Declaration of Human Rights)
This right may seem strange but it really means you can have your own opinions without being told what’s right and what’s wrong. It also means you have the freedom to be yourself.

We found out children are taken in the middle of the night and taken to fight in wars (child soldiers). We feel very sad and sorry for them.  Children have a right to education.
