Nor is there any hope on the horizon: problems that cannot be honestly addressed are doomed to persist in perpetuity.

    At the beginning of 2022, a photo of a chained woman found in China’s Xuzhou city, a victim of human trafficking, went viral on social media. Recently, two women were tied up and shamed by COVID-19 policy enforcers in southern China’s Guangzhou city for violating strict pandemic rules, sparking a public outcry on Chinese social media. U.S.-based China expert Tang Jingyuan pointed out that when the local authorities have the power to punish individuals without a trial, it indicates the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has incited various groups to struggle against each other under its “modern governance” model. According to...

    The FIFA World Cup is right around the corner. The 32-team quadrennial event is all set to kick off this Sunday at Qatar’s Al Bayt stadium. But even as hosts Qatar ready themselves to showcase their world-class football stadiums, human rights groups are increasingly calling for a boycott of the tournament. Over the last decade, as Qatar prepared itself to host the first-ever FIFA World Cup in the Arab peninsula, Humans Rights groups pointed out the several violations the Gulf state was committing. The monarchical state was accused of employing slave labor from South Asia to build the infrastructure required...

    Protests began in Iran on September 16, prompted by the death of a 22-year-old woman who was dragged away and allegedly beaten by the morality police for wearing her hijab improperly. Now, a new horror is being forced on the protesters of Iran who've spent weeks continuing their fight amidst brutal oppression by Islamic forces. More than 14,000 Iranians have been arrested in connection with the demonstrations being held around the country, with the country's parliament voting overwhelmingly last week in favour of the death penalty. Protests are being held across the world in solidarity with Iranian citizens. Image: Taken...

    FIFA bans "human rights for all" practice jerseys at World Cup ... What happened: FIFA, the international soccer federation, refused to let the Danish national team practice in shirts promoting "human rights for all" at the World Cup, which begins later this month in Qatar. Seriously? Yes. The chief executive of Denmark's soccer association said FIFA rejected the team's request "due to technical reasons." The seemingly innocuous phrase was presumably deemed too "political" due to the host country's appalling human rights record and ties to terrorist organizations. Wait, what? Human rights groups have condemned Qatar for using forced labor to...

    The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk, on Saturday issued an open letter to Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, urging him to "ensure human rights are central to the management of Twitter". "Twitter is part of a global revolution that has transformed how we communicate," Türk said in the letter quoted by Reuters. "But I write with concern and apprehension about our digital public square and Twitter's role in it." "Like all companies, Twitter needs to understand the harms associated with its platform and take steps to address them," he added. "Respect for our shared human...

    Human rights advocates are denouncing Twitter owner Elon Musk's decision to fire the social media platform's human rights department. Musk on Friday terminated thousands of Twitter employees, roughly half of the company's workforce of 7,500. Many of the now-former employees say they were given no notice before being abruptly let go via email. Musk is facing multiple lawsuits due to the mass firing, which potentially violated a California labor law. Workers with responsibilities that included content curation, machine learning ethics and communication were among those fired this week, according to Reuters. Former Twitter employee Shannon Raj Singh, who was the...

    A North Carolina father-of-one spent 24 hours in jail for refusing to wear a mask as ordered by a judge despite no state or county mandates in place. Gregory Hahn, 47, a US Navy veteran, was among several of 98 jury duty candidates called to Harnett County court who showed up not wearing a mask because there were no such rules or warnings in place, WRAL reports. Despite the fact that masks aren't required in the building, Judge Winston Charles Gilchrist mandated that everyone in his courtroom wear a mask.

    Biden admin’s lax sanctions enforcement drives Iranian military spending The Biden administration’s lax enforcement of sanctions on Iran’s illicit oil trade has allowed the hardline regime to infuse more than $15 billion into its military and terrorist proxies during the past two years, according to analysis by a watchdog group. Iranian military spending significantly jumped in 2022 as the regime got more access to cash through its multibillion-dollar trade in illicit oil—cash that made its way to the regime as a result of the Biden administration’s decision not to enforce U.S. sanctions, according to United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), a...

    Clashes between Iranian security forces and protesters angry over the death of a 22-year-old woman in police custody have killed at least nine people since the violence erupted over the weekend, according to a tally Thursday by The Associated Press. The scope of Iran’s ongoing unrest, the worst in several years, still remains unclear as protesters in at least a dozen cities — venting anger over social repression and the country’s mounting crises — continue to encounter security and paramilitary forces.

    Beijing -- As world leaders gather in New York at the annual UN General Assembly, rising superpower China is also focusing on another United Nations body that is meeting across the Atlantic Ocean in Geneva. Chinese diplomats are speaking out and lobbying others at an ongoing session of the Human Rights Council to thwart a possible call for further scrutiny of what it calls its anti-extremism campaign in Xinjiang, following a UN report on abuses against Uyghurs and other largely Muslim ethnic groups in the western China border region. The concurrent meetings, on opposite sides of the Atlantic, illustrate China's...

    Tirana, Albania — It is the stuff of wild nightmares. Despite the passage of three decades, for Iranian dissidents residing in a sprawling Albanian compound — far from their homeland — the torture and trauma of life inside an Iranian regime prison is still raw. “I was a university student, almost seven months pregnant, when the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) came,” Kobra Jowkar, now 59, says softly. “They raided our home at midnight and were very ruthless.” That ruthlessness, she claims, included kicking her around like a soccer ball — and walking on her bulging belly. The worst would...
