#DigitalRights📱Human rights apply online just as they do offline.

💫 At Manushya, we work under the motto that “Digital Rights are Human Rights”! But what are digital rights? Read below ⤵️

💻 Digital rights are an extension of the rights set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, applied to the online space. Closely linked to digital rights are the rights to freedom of expression and privacy, but others – such as the rights to freedom of assembly, life, work, health – are equally important and must be respected.
