Target: China Communist Leaders
Goal: Praise and congratulate China for its progressive reforms
The Communist Leaders of China recently devised 60 reform proposals which will immensely change life in China. Among these proposals were ideas such as breaking up monopolies and bank reforms, but the most shocking had to do with the “one-child” policy and labor camps.
The country announced plans to loosen up on its “one-child” policy; a policy that has been in effect in China for decades. The one-child policy is an attempt at population control which targets a large portion of the Chinese population, only allowing them to have one child. This policy has a large amount of controversy in China as it has created issues with abortion, infanticide and the sex imbalance in China.
China also plans to abolish their “re-education through labor” camps in which hundreds of thousands of Chinese citizens get imprisoned in without a trial. These camps currently hold about 190,000 people.
Although there is no date set for the abolition of labor camps or the revision of the one-child rule, these proposals provide many positive implications for China’s future. China is a great superpower of the world, surpassing all other countries in almost every field, however their human rights and justice policies are deeply flawed. These reforms could allow China to improve in the social areas in which they lack strength.
Please sign the petition below to support China in their efforts to make human rights policy improvements:
Dear Communist Leaders of China,
Congratulations on your recent action of creating 60 reform proposals, especially those regarding the one-child law and labor camps. These reform proposals are a large step towards improvement in human rights issues and I believe you will see your country make large strides because of this effort.
The one-child law and labor camps may have been created for reasons of practicality, but they severely infringe on the personal freedoms of your citizens. A person’s life should not be dictated in this fashion and the abolition of these practices will create a more happy and efficient government and country.
You are currently a very respected superpower in the world, steadily surpassing your comparable countries in many aspects, and these reforms could cause you to improve in the human rights areas which you lacked strength.
We are proud of you for your efforts and hope you continue to make such efforts towards social justice.
[Your Name Here]
