Integrity and Redress
“Nothing in this Declaration may be interpreted as implying for any State, group or person any right to engage in any activity or to perform any act aimed at the destruction of any of the rights and freedoms set forth herein.” United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 30
“Congress shall make no law...abridging…the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” Constitution of the United States of America, Amendment I
Corruption, unethical conduct, and conflicts of interest by public figures and organizations, especially those in positions of authority and power, should be exposed and held accountable.
The right to dissent and to seek redress are essential human rights invoking freedom of speech, the right to equal treatment, and the right to fair process. Conversely, suppression of dissent and denial of the right to impartial redress constitutes an egregious abuse of power.
