"FUF asks" continues the last day on @mrdagarna. Second question: What do you want to improve when it comes to human rights? 1. Fanny, ActionAid: Equality for all, but focusing on girls' and women's rights. I believe that society will be better off if all marginalized groups are heard in their own voices based on their conditions. 2. Niclas Larsen, Anita Vesterman and Tanja Bäckman, the police authority: All people should feel good. The question is difficult. But world peace should be preserved, e.g. The Yemen conflict. If there is peace, there are conditions that it can get better. To strengthen and safeguard the democratic process, fundamental freedoms and freedom of expression. Everything that is under democracy should be improved. Gisela Rossi Santillan, fempwrmnt: Difficult question, but to work more preventively with violence in close relationships between men and women and non-binary and to work preventively at all levels to end violence against women and non-binary and in close relations. - 3. Mohamad Altmimi, visitor: In order to create peace, we must fight extremists regardless of religion and fight terrorism. Extremely radical thoughts can lead to terrorism. That is exactly what I think should be improved in human rights, to preserve peace.

Safety and security. 2. Linnea Lindblom, high school student: It is a matter of course for all people on earth, they must be accepted and respected by all. Everyone should have the right to it. 3. Aisha Nuurhassa, high school student: That everyone has the right to be themselves and has the right to be protected, accepted and respected for their opinions. One should not be exploited and no one should look down on one. 4. Hillevi Brandt, Malmö against discrimination: I think the equal value of all people, basically. And the right to equal rights and opportunities. 5. Karl Johnson, @foreningen_ordfront / volunteer: We humans must be able to be the individuals we are.
