What do human rights mean to you? Fitzroy High School and Melbourne Girls’ College – Aug 2016

We visited Fitzroy High School and Melbourne Girls’ College, where students offered their opinions on human rights, adding to the discussion started by the students at Clifton Hill Primary school earlier this year for our Human Rights Are video series.

It’s pretty simple in their eyes – and they are right. It is a simple concept. It means the right to be who you are, to love who you want to love and the right to feel protected and equal under the law, for starters. But there’s also much more to it – check out our video for some great insights into the unique protection we’ve got in Victoria, the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities.

The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission stands on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri and Boonwurrung Peoples of the Kulin Nation. We recognise their cultures, histories, diversity and deep connection to this land and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Sovereignty has never been ceded – this land always was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
