Should we be allowed to say anything we like, even if it offends others?

Freedom of speech has been called the “lifeblood of democracy”. It means we can hold and express opinions and ideas, and criticise people in positions of power.

But the right to free expression is not a unlimited. This video explains why.

EachOther is a UK-focused charity that uses independent journalism, story-telling and film-making to put the human into human rights. The digital content we produce is grounded in the lived experience of ordinary people affected by human rights issues. We involve them in the process of developing their stories, rather than talking for or over them. Theirs are the voices we platform and amplify to our lay audience of over a million viewers each year. In this way, we hope to grow public support for human rights here in the UK.
