It was published in two parts in March and February. The basic principle of the Declaration was that all “men are born and remain free and equal in rights” (Article 1), which were specified as the rights of liberty, private property, the inviolability of the person, and resistance to oppression (Article 2).All citizens were equal before the law and were to have the right to participate in legislation directly or indirectly (Article 6); no.
