UN Human Rights Group Supports China’s Crackdown On Human Rights

The United Nations Human Rights Commission, of which China recently became a member (which should tell you enough right there) debated a new law passed by China reinforcing its rule over Hong Kong, a law that has formed the basis of the communist regime’s latest crackdown on the people of Hong Kong.

The law criminalizes anti-government movements, and targets pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong who have demonstrated against Beijing’s assaults on freedoms in the territory — which is supposed to be ruled on the principle of “one country, two systems.” based on a treaty with Great Britain which gave Hong Kong back to China some years ago.

After the debate 52 counties, lead by China and Cuba, came out in the support of the new law. Opposing it were Great Britain and 25 other countries.

(One more reason why we shouldn’t rely on international organizations to take moral stands.)
