OK, this is for a history final and i need help thinking events in history when the Civil Rights of the people were violated and were not fought for. Think of the civil rights we have today. We didn't always have them. Because of that, people's rights were violated a lot in the past. We have the obvious examples, like slavery or restriction of voting rights for women. What I'm asking is if there are any violations of human/civil rights that were overlooked or not really talked about. I'm looking specifically for cases where people COULD'VE fought for their rights, but they didn't.
But that's your homework. What do I get for doing your homework?
Didn't they give you a text book? Have you ever used Google?
Look for instances where the society repressed people rather than a group or sub-class . For example, in Russia, the right of travel was taken away from the peasants, who would move to another location if the noble was harsh, but it was done in two stages : first they were allowed to only travel at the peak of winter ; second they were not allowed to travel at all . You can research this by looking in the Czar period .
