HOW CAN WE DENY OR FORGET SUCH HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES?

We are speaking about a country that has the largest prison population in the world, and the highest per-capita incarceration rate.  One out of every five people imprisoned across the world is incarcerated there.

In 2018 there were over 700 people incarcerated per 100,000 of population.

Inmates there are forced to do work of large corporations, as little as 11 cents an hour, or face solitary confinement.  This makes them no more that slaves.

While the majority of those in prison represents a small percentage of the population, that minority represents 65% of the total prison population.

A closer look indicates a symbiotic relationship between private corporations, political system, and the government extracts labor from prisoners at wages considerably lower than the average wage of the country and some not paid at all.

We cannot accept that.  We have to protest!!  We have to tell China to free those incarcerated for actions only made criminal due to a new interpretation of the law.

Write letters, demand action.  We, the United States must tell China that….oh, shit, sorry.   This is what is occurring in America.  China incarcerates less than 121 per 100,000 population.  America 702 per 100,000 of population.

It’s a shell game played by American politicians.  Point to others so we won’t look within.

America ought to clean up its own backyard before calling others to task.
