Human Right- a right that is believed to belong justifiably to every person.
200,000 prisoners like this are held in large prison camps and are forced to work as slaves for the government while being tortured.
In Syria people are currently fighting the government for a better system that protects civil rights. Armed battles are happening in towns with innocent civilians and the death rates reached 120,000 September 2013.
In Equatorial Guinea the President and the small circle of people surrounding him use all of the country's money to live wealthy lifestyles, while the rest of the country lives in poverty. Less than half of the population has access to clean drinking water and 20% of children die before reaching five.
