Human Rights in China

I think the authors here are all familiar with Human Rights Watch, I’ve linked to their report on China. A long and worthy read.

Human rights conditions in China deteriorated significantly in 2006. Authorities greeted rising social unrest—marked at times by violent confrontation between protesters and police—with stricter controls on the press, internet, academics, lawyers, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs).

If the ruling elite of a country cares this little for the rights and welfare of it’s own citizens, what do they care for the products they export to us foreigners?
