Human Rights, Human Needs
April 25, 2017
Today I am thinking again about rights, needs and the refugee families from Syria.
I found this:
There are so many problems with this...
- what if I don't want a nationality? what if i want to be a "citizen of the world"? can I get a world passport?
- what does arbitrarily mean?
- what about a 16 or 14 year old? do they have the "right" to change their nationality? The govt of Uruguay has not given anyone Uruguay passports. What if one of the "minors" wanted to stay in Uruguay? What if one wanted to go to a different country or have a different passport? They only have Syrian passpors now.
Here is a screenshot of one of my searches today:
