My name is Yang Jianli and I am a Chinese citizen.
I am honored to take the floor on behalf of United Nations Watch.
I would like to first put forth a question for everyone: Does the PRC deserve a seat here?
Since its founding in 1949, the CCP regime government has long advocated the Theory of Class Struggle. In the process of carrying out ruthless crackdowns on anti-revolutionaries, land reforms, industrial and commercial reforms, the Anti-Rightist Campaign, the Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, the Tiananmen Square Massacre, the persecution of Falun Gong, the suppression of the Democracy Party of China, the crackdown on the signatories of Charter 08, and other campaigns and incidents, it has committed a vast number of human rights violations, directly causing the deaths of tens of millions of people. Since 2012, the CCP regime has made vigorous efforts to generate personal worship, to abolish the country’s presidential term limit, and to transform China from a totalitarian state further into a personal dictatorship or even a personality cult. The narrow freedom that was once achieved through the struggle of civil society was again aggressively suppressed. In the past five years, the CCP regime has committed round after round of vicious human rights violations, including the strengthening of communist ideology, the intensifying of the censorship of online speech and the persecution of lawyers and petitioners, the heightened implementation of suppressive discriminatory policies in Tibet, Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia, the wanton demolition of churches, and the expulsion of so-called low-end populations in big cities such as Beijing.
Unfortunately, time does not allow me to enumerate all the cases of human rights abuses taking place in China. I want to close by asking the question again: Should the CCP regime, a regime that totally disregards the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and contravenes the UN human Rights covenants, be eligible to represent China on the UN Human Rights Council?
