Is Sleep A Basic Human Right?

A typical day in my life now means being woken up at 6.17 by a plane flying directly overhead. And it’s not just flying. It’s climbing, and whirring. It’s flying low and slow. I’ve always been a good sleeper but this early plane wakes me up in the morning before I want to get up, and that’s an imposition. Imagine if a neighbour stood outside your house and beat a metal bin lid with a length of wood. You’d tell them to clear off, right? You’d be rightfully furious. If they did it the next day you’d call the police and expect them to be removed and contained.
