In western states, we enjoy something that seems almost banal to us - and thats Human rights. We can demonstrate against our own government without having to fear reprisals, we have the right to go to school, we have the right to go vote, we have the right to be judged fairly and without prejudice - or, in short, we have the right to live. Of course, not every state has the luxury to supply all its inhabitants with equal rights, but I want to talk about one state in special: China. With its 1,336,718,015 residents, it has more residents than any other state of the world. The allegedly communist state has long since been turning into a more and more capitalist system, explaing its massive economic Achievements in its last few Years. But, the chinese government is known for its totalist regime, suppressing their own People for almost a century. There have been many debates about human rights, but China doesn't allow anyone to talk about this topic. Censorship seems to be the biggest Weapon of the chinese Government. And anyone who doesn't obey, is put into prison.
Just like this man:
Ai Weiwei, a chinese Artist who is internationally known for his dissident artwork, has been arressted on Sunday in Peking, because he made artworks about the violation of human rights in his home, inhumane working conditions and the ecologic ignorance from the government.
For the denounciation of his Government he now has to serve his time in Prison, getting beat up by the Police and suffering horrible living conditions.
China has to change.
