“If you’re denied freedom of movement, all of your rights are affected”
In honor of Human Rights Day, Professor Aeyal Gross of the Faculty of Law at Tel Aviv University, and a member of Gisha's board, was interviewed (Hebrew) on Guy Zohar's show on Radio 103 FM.
From the interview: "If you'd asked me once, 'What human rights are the most important?' I would say 'equality, freedom of expression', or maybe 'health and education'. Freedom of movement wouldn’t have been the first thing to come to my mind. But actually, this right impacts all other rights, because if you don't have freedom of movement, you don't have health – you can't get to the doctor. You don’t have a family life, because you can't visit your family and you can't work. If you're denied freedom of movement, all of your rights are affected, certainly the right to education as well".
