FREEDOM ROARING BACK
"A magnificent work about freedom, democracy, liberty"
Thos Ribbits, MusicalTalk
Our story tells how natural law, in its contemporary form of universal human rights was reborn in Europe after the unnatural bloodshed and barbarity of two World Wars.
The Convention on Human Rights in Europe is a list of rights that are shared by all, under the protection of the Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
Universal Human Rights and Freedoms
Those who fought and died for freedom
Unlike this present crisis, where we have given away rights and freedoms in return for our health, people willingly sacrificed themselves to protect liberty and democracy.
Those who were slaughtered were extinguish their freedom of conscience and expression as well as their right to live.
At Nuremberg, those who sought to deny them these freedoms were brought to justice.
ABOUT THE SHOW

The writings of David Maxwell Fyfe,
