Human Rights- China

China Today

The Struggle

The two most intense human rights violations in China right now are the one child policy and unfair pay for workers.An estimated 500,000 people are currently sent to punitive detention, jail without charge or trial.

Dangerous Air

It was found that 750,000 Chinese die prematurely each year, primarily because of air pollution in large cities.One of the primary ways in which air pollution kills is the presence of small particles, generally released from burning fossil fuels and other industrial activity.Breathing particle pollution may trigger illness, hospitalization and premature death, risks showing up in new studies that validate earlier research.The Chinese government, which for years was reluctant to release pollution data, now suggest that particulate pollution this year has been 30 percent higher than the same period in 2012.Manufacturing industries and Beijing's 5 million-plus cars all contribute to the city's crippling air pollution, but most experts primarily blame the coal-burning electrical plants that power China's breakneck economic growth.


Employment distribution has been an important issue for the Chinese Government ever since it began initiating reforms. Employment levels differs from region to region, with stronger concentrations of unemployment in the interior.China has a population of nearly 1.3 billion, and is the most populous country in the world. To solve the employment issue in China is a strenuous, arduous and pressing task.
