China seeks to Improve Human Rights

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 23, 2011

As if one is peering through the ‘looking glass’ one sometimes has to wonder in which China they reside. According to this site China is developing a comprehensive ‘rights package’ to protect her people.
“China is developing a socialist theoretical system for human rights with Chinese characteristics.
Zhang Xiaoling, a professor and director of the Human Rights Studies Centre of the Party School of the CPC Central Committee, made the statement in her speech on the second day of a two-day forum on human rights held in Beijing on Thursday.”
But what this guy has posted seems to disagree. The author of this site and photo posted here has this to say
“The expansion and growing influence of unofficial churches has unsettled China’s rulers, always suspicious of any independent social group that could challenge Communist authority.”

which if true definitely does not sound like the protection of much of anything. Hmm, I wonder what the real truth is….
