“Humans Need to Be Free”
Mixed media – Acrylic & Marker, 24×30
Description: Humans need to be free. Human rights are important because they protect this freedom. If people don’t have human rights, people can get hurt. They won’t be free to be who they want to be. Like Anne Frank and other Jews who were killed by the Nazis. And like today, the Uyghurs in Xinjiang China are being treated badly. The Chinese government is taking away their human rights. I care about Article 9, the right to be free from arbitrary detention, and all the other human rights, because I want to live in a world that has freedom for everyone.
