Right To An Option

Article 19-The right to an Opinion

Article 18, freedom of thought and religion would also be affect and in order to preserve freedom of speech, something we all need to survive, the right to opinion and expression should be retained.

Without this right I would not be allowed nor would any of you be allowed to express your opinions on your chosen rights.

Everyone should have the right to opinion and expression. Without this simple right there would be no protests, advertising and creativity. That means no access to the internet or TV shows. Just think about a world with no creative outlets, no TV, movies or books. We should be able to read, hear and see what we want but we can't if this right was taken away.

1. Everyone shall have the right to hold opinions without interference.2. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of expression; this right shall include freedom to seek, receive and impart information and ideas of all kinds, regardless of frontiers, either orally, in writing or in print, in the form of art, or through any other media of his choice.3. The exercise of the rights provided for in paragraph 2 of this article carries with it special duties and responsibilities. It may therefore be subject to certain restrictions, but these shall only be such as are provided by law and are necessary:(a) For respect of the rights or reputations of others;(b) For the protection of national security or of public order (ordre public), or of public health or morals.

OPINION- the beliefs or views of a large number or majority of people about a particular thing.

Observer and The Guardian v United Kingdom (1991)The Guardian and The Observer newspapers published some excerpts from Peter Wright’s book Spycatcher, which contained material alleging that MI5 had conducted unlawful activities. The government succeeded in obtaining an injunction preventing further publication until proceedings relating to a breach of confidence had been concluded. Subsequently the book was published in other countries and then in the UK. The Guardian complained that the continuation of the injunction infringed the right to freedom of expression in Article 10.The European Court of Human Rights held that although the injunction was lawful, as it was in the interests of national security, once the book had been published, there was insufficient reason for continuing the publication ban. The injunction should have been discharged once the information was no longer confidential.

The right to an opinion has been around for many years but what is it?The right to an opinion is being able to speak your mind and express your self through without others impeding on your views. This right means that you can have a view on certain issues even if others disagree with you.
