As a human, you have inalienable rights – see ICCPR – and rights in Australian law, including in the Constitution. Some of the basic ones include:
- free speech: to speak openly on anything, provided you speak responsibly and do not infringe others’ rights;
- freedom of assembly: to meet, gather, join and act to further legal views and actions
- freedom of thought, conscience and religion (and no religion);
- right to live freely and securely, and to develop yourself;
- to be treated equally with other citizens by authorities, and under the law;
- to move around freely, and to leave and return to Australia;
- to marry, choosing your own partner, and to raise a family;
- to work, with just and favourable conditions and hours, including reasonable rest, leisure and holidays;
- freedom to join a trade union, or to not join; and
- the right to share reasonably equitably in the economic, social and cultural rights of the community as part of an inherent dignity of person.
Each right of yours implies a responsibility to respect similar and other rights of others.
