Human Rights Matter #1 – They Apply To All

Human Rights matter because they establish minimum standards of humanity that all of us are entitled to. The fact they apply to all of us means human rights are a driving force for equality between people. Each and everyone of us regardless of our position in the world can claim our entitlement. Whether someone in the rich world or a slum dweller they give each of us a claim on the world. What we as Amnesty activists can offer is solidarity to those least able to make their claim which gives them a better chance and helps protect the entitlements of others.
