This includes the region of Tibet bordering India which is linked with an independence movement from the mainland. Any reference to the breakaway island of Taiwan as being an independent entity, not under the jurisdiction of the Chinese mainland is further frowned upon and punished by the state (Zhongguo 193). Even the internet is said to be heavily moderated with content that supports Taiwan or the Free Tibet Movement being censored and violations of viewer ship being brutally punished with torture and other means so as to deter the population. It is public knowledge that the Chinese authorities use Microsoft, Yahoo and other companies to filter the use of certain words such as “Democracy” and other words deemed offensive by the authorities from Chinese chat rooms and instant messaging software (Gunther). Thus it is contended that the government interferes with the basic human right of freedom of speech and expression for its citizens and does not allow free ideas to float.

The second major category of allegations against China regarding human rights violations relates to freedom of movement for its citizens. Since the formation of the People’s Republic of China by Mao Ze Dong, the state has initiated a program of restricting where its citizens could stay and work. This was regulated utilizing a residency permit system whereby citizens were defined according to their geographical area and encouraged to stay in particular places (MacLeod). It further kept population divided between the urban and rural areas such that the problems accompanying rapid urbanization do not plague China. The allegations put against China are that it deliberately tries to stop the free movement of its citizens, with those wanting to move to urban areas or different provinces being punished in terms of less grain rations etc. This leads to the creation of a society where the rural workers are treated as second class citizens and a system akin to the South African apartheid (MacLeod). It undoubtedly helps the People’s Republic of China in controlling the problem of rapid urbanization and also helps regulate wage rates to some extent but it denies Chinese citizens the choice to move as they please and hence this restrictive system is a violation of fundamental human rights.

Another chief point raised against China is that of marginalization of its rural population. This discriminates against people of various religions who because of their beliefs can not take part in political affairs and it closes an important avenue for them.
