International Society for Human Rights (ISHR)
Despite economic splendour and the Olympic shine, the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is
undoubtedly a one party dictatorship. Censorship and immense human rights violations, such as the use of systematic torture, take place on a daily basis.The People’s Republic refuses fundamental human rights to their own brothers and threatens
their democratic neighbours. This threat, the systematic torture and violations of human rights, as well as the millions of slave labourers in the so called re-education camps are hardly getting public acknowledgement.
Arbitrariness and intimidation by the authorities, which are controlled by the CPC (Communist Party of China), take place on a daily basis. They serve the
purpose of securing the dominance of those in power and ensuring personal enrichment of
individual officials. A means of preserving such a system is achieved by use of intimidation in a court of law, the predetermination of judgements by the CPC, arbitrary arrests, slave-like forced labour in institutions for “re-education” and the suppression of
a self-developing democratic society. The most effective method is to place people in the labour camps, where they are re-educated and tortured.
Torture is widely used and systematically implemented by the Chinese authorities, despite torture
being officially forbidden. The victims are very often civil rights advocates, unionists, democratic activists, members of non-state-controlled Christian churches or Buddhist schools of meditation and representatives of ethnic minorities, like the Tibetans and Uyghurs.
The torture takes place in Police stations, re-education and prison camps, interrogation centres, prisons, re-education centres, psychiatric facilities and other places of detainment. Hundreds of thousands of Chinese have become victims of these cruel and unbearable activities. [FULL STORY]
