The leader of the Chinese Communist Party arrived at Hong Kong, a colony-like Special Administrative region, just to learn that a lot of protesters had been waiting for him. Protesters in Hong Kong asked for absolute democracy for electing Legislative Council member as well as their Chief Executive in Hong Kong.

The "1000 Child Slaves in China" video in English was finally released by youtuber "daughterofchina" yesterday on youtube! Horrible scenes of child slaves as young as 8 year old are shown in the video.
According to the reporter who tried to rescue the child slaves and New York Times News Service (publish on Chicago Tribune), local police in Shanxi has been unhelpful. The police even turned parents away by saying that the "slavery" was nothing more than labor dispute. Reportedly, some parents have been sent away from the factories because of the collusion between local officials and the kiln owners.
Also, reportedly, Liu Cheng, a professor of labor law at Shanghai Normal University, saw the incident as a typical example of a government-business alliance. This is perhaps the main reaon why despite the fact that forced labor and child labor in China are illegal, some local governments don't care too much.

A funny and yet sad cartoon about the "modern slavery" in China!
As the states enterprise in China are privatized, more and more workers are working until ever improvished conditions with not employee protection despite the presence of some employee protection laws. These so-called labor laws in China have never been respected because of the corruption of local communist officials who often receive bribe money from factory owners.
The most serious labor problem is China, however, is not labor abuse, but forced retirement or layoff with little or no compensation. Privatized factories may be sold to real estate property developers and factory workers will be laid off regardless of the number of years they have worked for the factories. Their retirement pensions are often forfeited, as factory owners flee to escape their responsibilities.
The lack of retirement protection for middle aged citizens is often complicated by recent forced eviction by real estate developers who collude with local communist officials to expropriate land with little compensation. It is not uncommon that many middle-aged citizens become homeless and jobless in big cities despite the high rate of economic growth in these cities!

This Sponge Bob short cartoon describes the current situation of China truthfully. Sweatshops have been known to exist in China for many years now. There is virtually no freedom of speech in China. The communist government uses arms against its own people. Perhaps this cartoon represents a classic case of what people would call "dark humor!"

The video shows that new Chinese immigrants from China are creating a lot of nuisance in the Japanese society. Particularly, some of them work as street hawkers obstructing the streets, selling illegal copyright violating items, and messing up local hygiene.
It has been known that Chinese new immigrants in many foreign countries have been creating similar problems. Not only that, there have been many complaints from all over the world about the misbehaviors of Chinese tourists lately.

China under the communist regime has been known to be flooded with thousands and thousands of fake and copy-right infringing commodities. Under the education system in China, young citizens hardly learn anything related to the respect of copyright protection. Piracy and Pagarism have been common pratice of individuals, businesses, and the government.
Recently, several Japanese television programs have discovered a fake state-run fake Disneyland in Beijing. Inside the park, there are not only Disney characters, but also Japanese cartoon characters. Investigation shows that the state-own park has never paid any fee to the copyright owners, nor has the park franchised with these original owners.
The disrespect of international copyright and patent right is certainly a true disgrace of China as a World Trade Organization member!

An unreasonable increase in bus fare in a small county in the Hunan province has resulted in hugh conflict between the citizen and the local government. Reportedly, the private bus company colluded with the local government to raise bus fare by 5 RMB. This is a second fare increase in less than one year. A poor student going to Guang Dong was unable to pay the bus fare and was kick out of the bus. This invoked the discontent of other passengers who had been disappointed by the intolerable rise in bus fare which had become unaffordable by normal wage earners who could hardly earn more than a few hundred dollars a month in the area.
Riot began when the bus company called upon the local police force to beat up some of the discontented protestors. The injury of peaceful protestors served as a catalyst of a large scale protest involving over 10,000 citizens. Some disappointed citizen started burning some buses on the street. Reportedly, the local government was unable to stop the protest and had to ask for help from the nearby Guang Dong province.
Official Chinese Communist Party media asserted that there were only a few violent rioters purposely created the riot. However, some local citizens suggested that the riot was a result of the corruption between the local bus company and the local government.

This is a youtube video posted by a youtuber, "harrodcn."
The video shows a senior class in a performing art high school located in Beijing. The students were having a geography class. You can see that most of the students weren't listening to the teacher's lecture. In fact, some girls were playing with their cosmetics, while other were throwing bottles and yelling. The teacher was even harassed by one of the students.
In Beijing chaos happen almost everywhere not only in classrooms. Forced eviction, income inequality, other injustice, air pollution, and water pollution have become part of the lives of Beijing residents. Economic development only benefits a small portion of the pollution. The majority of the citizens in Beijing actually suffers.
