Freedom of speech – can we say what we like?
Freedom of speech gives us the right to express our opinions. But does that mean that we can say what we want?
Freedom of opinion and expression is the right you have to:
- Express your opinion – as long as it is not hateful or discriminatory
- Search for, receive and provide information through any media
Freedom of opinion and expression is protected by Article 19 of the United Nations (UN) Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is supported by the entire world.
