Slightly unusual sentence. You were asked by someone what YOUR rights are. Don't you want to say: "We were asked by the workers what their rights are..."

Oh, by "our rights" I meant 'our' as in the general public.

It's still not clear to me who did the asking. Is it be something like this: "We were asked by a foreign diplomat what our rights are..."

OK, OK, I'll name (imaginary) names.

That's actually very close to the original sentence I adapted it from now.

It's still not clear to me who is WazUpDude. Could I have his phone number?

No, but if you click the imaginary forum link on the imaginary web page this sentence is (imagined to be) on then you can send him a PM.

Alright kids, let's stop this unnecessary debate before you start the World War III :P

Paul's initial sentence was perfectly fine in my opinion. It illustrates the fact that 'our' can be used to refer to the 'general public'.
Scott's translation was a perfectly fine translation the initial English sentence.

Please, Paul, edit your sentence back to how it initially was and let's move on to something else. Thank you :)
