    China hammers dissent despite looming UN review

    link

    BEIJING Days before China's human rights record comes under scrutiny before a key U.N. panel, the government's grip on dissent seems as firm as ever.

    Government critics have been rounded up and some imprisoned on vaguely defined state security charges. Corruption whistle-blowers have been bundled away, while discussion of sensitive political and social topics on the Internet remains tightly policed.
    "China's rights record remains a matter of grave concern," said Nicholas Bequelin, Asia researcher for New York-based Human Rights Watch.

    "No country has a perfect human rights record, but the problem with China is that it jails people who expose violations, maintains absolute censorship over state media and prevents victims of human rights abuses from finding justice," he said.
    We know China's record is disgusting. Sadly, irresonsible US economic policies, which are only going to be excaerbated under Obama, are putting the US in a position where they can't really do too much to condemn these actions.

    I completely agree with the man who recently threw a show at Premier Wen. It is about time for the West to stand up to the dictators in Beiping.

    Everyone knows the UN is all bark.

    There are what - 1 billion citizens of China?

    How many are permitted to post here at Debate Politics?

    That alone should tell you something

    Amazing that they don't have their paid spammers on here like they do on other sites on the web.

    But, on an unrelated note - if China shows up in Asia Group 1 in the Davis Cup again, Taiwan can always help bounce them back down to Group 2 ... again.

    Wow, attacking obama and standing up to beijing all in one stance.
    Asside from the usual hyperbolic hysteria that you use for plainly ignorant people with those key words for resonance - I'm curious, just how do you propose t "stand up to the dictators of Beijing"?

    The first ignorant person steps up.
    1. Of course we all know that everyone in the whole world speaks English and is fluent in reading and writing english.
    2. with all the vial hatred of I'm not surprised that people in China wouldn't bother posting here. Should anyone there post any dissenting opinion to that of the board, they'll get a barage of nasties from the board as well as a slur of racist slandar against that go completely "un-noticed"
    3. Yes, because we all know just how keen Chinese are to post on the world wide popular debate politics right?

    So no, that alone doesn't say squat other than plain simple ignorance.

    For the record, this site is not in anyway shape or form "censored" in china as you all here so self-righteously assume.
    But that won't stop the assumptions and further self endowment of superiority.

    From what you've posted on "that alone should say something" yes, by all means - at least on this subject quite so.

    If anyone is ignorant here it is you. Your attacking style alone brands you.
