China wants to dominate the world. But will it?
A group of pro-democracy activists and human rights defenders have called for the United Nations and its institutions that are currently kept in shackles by Beijing to free themselves and support democracy in China.
As Communist China celebrated its National Day on Oct. 1, the activists, with varied background from North America, Europe and Asia, came on a single platform under the aegis of New Delhi-based think-tank ‘Law and Society Alliance’ and ‘Defence Capital’ to ask all democratic nations and international human rights organisations to unite against the repressive Chinese Communist party (CCP) regime in Beijing.
London-based Inter-Parliamentary Alliance coordinator Luke De Pulford said human rights and law-based world order is the responsibility of all nations globally and argued that the rules-based order has come under a severe threat from the Communist Party of China.
Expressing his disgust at the ongoing persecution in China of Tibetans, Uighurs and Mongolians, Pulford said it has led to a severe human rights crisis and genocide, which are extremely serious.
“In Hong Kong, we see that the CCP has completely destroyed an international treaty and displayed a flagrant disregard for it and the people of Hong Kong,” he said.
Luke de Pulford said he was concerned over China holding the United Nations in shackles. “The CCP has strategically rolled out an effort to undertake initiatives of the UN leading to the dependency of the UN agencies on the CCP and coming under it. Currently, at least 15 UN organisations and bodies are being headed by the Chinese nationals. These are huge and important institutions. This is obstructing these agencies to speak up against China.”
