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 it is not hateful or discriminatory
- Search for, find and give information using media
The United Nations (UN) has a Universal Declaration of Human Rights which is supported by the whole world. Article 19 protects our right to freedom of opinion and expression.
