This is a draft Human Rights Charter for Earthspace , the space-based sovereign state in my books. It is based on a combination of the UN, Europe and Canada charters, with some additional clauses to account for the special conditions of space. There are limitations on immigration and pregnancy due to the severe limits on life support capacity in small ships and stations. I've also included more emphasis on direct democracy, and limits of foreign ownership of ship-board assets.

Comments as always, welcome, and I'll summarise here any that I get.

Please contact Richard Penn for more information.
