    Hello Vicki, I’d like to read out Article 14 in Dutch if that’s alright. See you then!

      that’s great Maria, thank you. i’ve put a link in the list above to the Greek translation of the UDHR on the UN website and here is Article 13

      ΑΡΘΡΟ 13
      Καθένας έχει το δικαίωμα να κυκλοφορεί ελεύθερα και να εκλέγει τον τόπο της διαμονής του στο εσωτερικό ενός κράτους.
      Καθένας έχει το δικαίωμα να εγκαταλείπει οποιαδήποτε χώρα, ακόμα και τη δική του, και να επιστρέφει σε αυτήν.
