Twentieth article of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

route to human rights

Article 20 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights guarantees the fundamental right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association. This right protects the ability of individuals to assemble and associate with others in pursuit of common goals, both in private and in public. This right allows individuals to form groups, organize protests, express collective opinions and engage in joint activities, and includes the right to form trade unions, political parties, religious associations, cultural groups and any other type of association. It also protects the right not to be compelled to belong to an association.

However, Article 20 is not absolute. Meetings and associations that incite violence, hatred or discrimination may be subject to reasonable restrictions. These restrictions must be established by law and be necessary to protect other rights or legitimate interests.

The plaque with Article 20 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is located next to the milestone at km 100 on Rua Carril das Flores in Lugo.
