We discussed the right to freedom of speech and what this meant to us.
We then thought about how in terms of rights, we also have the responsibility to make sure that we neither do nor say something that might restrict other peoples’ rights or prevent other people from enjoying their rights. For example:
This led us to think about how anything we say must also not offend others or put their rights in danger.
One person’s rights should not harm another person’s rights: making a comment about someone based on their age, race or gender goes against that person’s right to be treated fairly and equally.
Finally we discussed how these responsibilities are not just through our spoken words but also anything we write, on paper or digitally online.
