    – Right to have food
    – Right to have shelter
    – Right to security
    – Right to speak
    – Right to health care

    • jessiehmann says:

      Alright Mase,
      -5 is a good start!
      You may want to specific/add more when it comes to the right to health care
      (Right to health care;)

      Remember; not every has free health care like us in Canada, but that doesn’t necessarily mean there is a human rights violation attached.

      Article 25.

      (1) Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food, clothing, housing and medical care and necessary social services, and the right to security in the event of unemployment, sickness, disability, widowhood, old age or other lack of livelihood in circumstances beyond his control.
      (2) Motherhood and childhood are entitled to special care and assistance. All children, whether born in or out of wedlock, shall enjoy the same social protection.

  2. arnel says:

    right to life.
    freedom of religion
    equality
    speak what you got on your mind
    have your own ideas and thoughts
    marriage

    • jessiehmann says:

      Hey Arnel,
      This looks awesome.
      Remember to try and still speak formally;
      “speak what you got on your mind”
      You may want to formalize your words by saying;
      Everyone has the freedom of speech;
      -6 isn’t bad; remember you will be responsible to learn more in the coming days.
      -15-20 is your goal.

  3. calimorgan says:

    Cali’s attempt at the 30 human rights
    freedom to be born free.
    right to life.
    right to be represented in front of a court
    right not to be a slave
    right to be equal
    not be subjected to torture

  4. – have free justice
    -have a right to nationality
    -freedom and safety
    -right to have marriage and form a family
    – right to vote
    – at birth are all equal
    – have the right to property
    – equal before the law

    • jessiehmann says:

      Booooo ya Zach,
      Things look good here.
      You have listed 8 articles here.
      For the first one; “have free justice” -you may want to say something more specific;
      An example would be;
      Everyone has the right to a court hearing their case; the court must be fair.
      The rest all look good.

      You brought up the right to own property- Good one;
      Remind me to tell you my China story!

      If you learn double the rights- you will be good to go for your test. Remember to be specific.

  5. syd1227 says:

    – right for any religion
    – right to vote
    – freedom of speech
    – right to live
    – right to your own household
    – everyone is equal
    – no one should be cruelly punished or tortured
    – everyone is innocent unless proven guilty

    • jessiehmann says:

      Hey girl,
      Looking good here.
      Be sure that you know which articles you have summed up here. You don’t want to start blending articles and even being too casual; ‘right to your own household,’
      What do you mean here?
      For example; the article I think you are summing up here is:
      Article 17.
      (1) Everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others.
      (2) No one shall be arbitrarily deprived of his property.
      You may want to sum it up by saying;
      Everyone has the right to own/live within their own household and it cannot be taken away without reason.

      Good job. Half way there!

      Evan, Well done. You have touched on some new ones here.
      Good work.
      Ask me about; right to live anywhere- if I have no idea what you are talking about tell me to tell you the China story.
      Be sure to maybe add a little more detail so it is clear what you are mentioning.
      You are also half way there- Keep studying and be specific.
      Good job!

      These all look good, a helpful exercise for you would be to now take each of these articles and double check they are in detail enough compared to the full right. You may want to add a little more detail to just double check.
      BOOOOM
      Good work.

    • jessiehmann says:

      Hey Shauna,
      Things are looking rocking here.
      Try and formalize your style of writing a little bit and ensure your example makes sense.
      30 human rights
      *everyone has a right to not get cruel or torture
      Example: Everyone has the right to be treated fairly and not receive any form of cruel treatment or torture.
      *everyone should go to jail, be sentence excile
      (You will want to re check which article you are referring to on this one.)
      *everyone shouldnt be forced to get off there own property
      Everyone has the right to own their own property and it cannot be taken from them without valid reasoning.
      *everyone has a right of opinion (Good, use capitalization when it applies.)
      *everyone has a right to speak there(their) own thoughts
      *everyone has a right to vote
      *everyone shouldn(‘)t be judged of there(their) race
      *everyone has a right to be born free
      *everyone has a right to speech
      Work on improving these English skills so that you can communicate more effectively.
      Good start kiddo. Keep studying.

      Try and make sure that when you are commenting in this format you are using properly bulleting punctuation and capitalization so it doesn’t take away from your examples.
      Way to crush it. These look good.
      Make sure you are being formal!
      Example: “you have the right to have a court date with people present”
      Please formalize with;
