Civil liberties is the name given to protection from the power of governments.
Examples include due process (the right that the government do not take an individual's life, liberty, or property without a fair trial or other appropriate procedure); the right to self defence; the right to privacy; freedom of speech; freedom of religion; and freedom of assembly.
Furthermore, even civil liberties that are legally protected have sometimes been abrogated, especially in time of war.
