A Tear for China’s Children – Protecting and Safeguarding the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in the People's Republic of China

ByDr Mark O'Doherty

Dear All, Since the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, Russian authorities and armed forces have committed multiple war crimes in the form of deliberate attacks against civilian targets, massacres of civilians, torture and rape of women and children, and indiscriminate attacks in densely populated areas. As many as 300,000 people have been killed or injured in the war so far; including 1,000 Ukrainian children. Hence it is imperative that Peace is restored between Ukraine and Russia, to stop the killing of Children. A continuation of Putin's illegal war on Ukraine would increasingly harm Russia's reputation, and isolate the Russian People economically, socially and culturally – which is unnecessary and can be avoided, if Russia restores peaceful relations with the world. This includes the withdrawal of all Russian troops from Ukrainian territory; and restoring Freedom of Speech, Press, Association and Liberty in Russia. This involves working together with my dear friends António Guterres, Volker Türk, Joe Biden, Avril Haines, Xi Jinping, Wang Yi, Tony Blinken, Rishi Sunak, James Cleverly, Giorgia Meloni, Volodymyr Zelenskiy, Alexei Navalny, Emmanuel, Liz, Boris, Richard, Mike, Igor, Alexander, Valery Gerasimov, Sergey Surovikin, Alexander Schallenberg and William Burns - so that Peace Talks can commence. It should also be noted that the borders of both Ukraine and Russia have been internationally recognized and defined in 1991 - with Russia's President Boris Yeltsin recognizing Ukraine's independence. Hence Russia should honor this agreement, so that International Law can be restored in the world. We encourage the People of Russia to restore International Human Rights Law (IHRL) by arranging a peaceful governmental change in Russia - which includes replacing Vladimir Putin with a new Russian President, and withdrawing the Russian Armed Forces from Ukrainian territory. PS: Once Peace between Russia and Ukraine has been manifested, we intend to replace NATO with a new International Peacebuilding Alliance. In our opinion this should have been done already after the Cold War, but which the US neglected to do, missing the opportunity of a potential reconciliation with Russia - which the US and EU need to make up for. 上帝祝福你 / Love and Light / Бог благословить / благослови господь россию / God Bless /الله يبارك Acting president of Российская Федерация, the United Kingdom, United States and European Union Mark / BTB-Global Peacebuilding 3.

Healing China: Upholding the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in the People's Republic of ChinaArticle 18: Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.Article 19: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiersArticle 20: Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly and association.Article 21: Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his country, directly or through freely chosen representatives."Thousands of Xinjiang mosques destroyed or damaged, report finds" / Chinese region has fewer mosques and shrines than at any time since Cultural Revolution"China confirms death of Uighur man whose family says was held in Xinjiang camps" / Beijing formally confirmed death to UN but man’s daughter disputes suggestion he died of ‘pneumonia and tuberculosis’ in 2018"US 'deeply disturbed' by reports of systematic rape in China's Xinjiang camps" / UK under renewed pressure to impose sanctions in wake of ‘clearly evil acts’ against Uighur and Muslim women"Mike Pompeo declares China's treatment of Uighurs 'genocide' " / Officials say 1m minorities in Xinjiang have been imprisoned"'Their goal is to destroy everyone': Uighur camp detainees allege systematic rape"Women in China's "re-education" camps for Uighurs have been systematically raped, sexually abused, and tortured, according to detailed new accounts obtained by the BBC.Human rights groups say the Chinese government has gradually stripped away the religious and other freedoms of the Uighurs, culminating in an oppressive system of mass surveillance, detention, indoctrination, and even forced sterilisation."China is forcing women to be sterilised or fitted with contraceptive devices in Xinjiang in an apparent attempt to limit the population of Muslim Uighurs, according to new research""Uighurs: 'Credible case' China carrying out genocide"There is a "very credible case" that the Chinese government is carrying out the crime of genocide against the Uighur people, according to a formal legal opinion newly published in the UK.It concludes there is evidence of state-mandated behaviour showing an intent to destroy the largely Muslim minority in north-western China.This includes the deliberate infliction of harm on Uighurs in detention, measures to prevent women giving birth - including sterilisation and abortion - and the forcible transfer of Uighur children out of their communityWashington Post: "Who are the Uighurs, and what’s happening to them in China?" China’s crackdown on the Muslim ethnic minority in XinjiangAmnesty International: "Tell China to stop targeting Uyghurs"The detentions appear to be part of an effort by the Chinese government to wipe out religious beliefs and aspects of cultural identity to enforce political loyalty.Friends and relatives are cut off from information and don’t know where their loved ones are. Now, they don’t even feel safe outside China.So this is a big embarrassment to China - that Presdent Xi Jinping is responsible of committing ongoing genocide against Uighur Muslims in Xinjiang province.So either President Xi Jinping must finally implement the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in China - in particular freedom of thought, conscience and religion - or he must be removed from office.Healing America: Counteracting racism and police violence in the United States" 'It burns': nine-year-old pepper sprayed by police begged for help, video reveals" / New video shows girl saying: ‘Please don’t do this,’ to which officer replies: ‘You did it to yourself, hon’Andrew Cuomo, governor of New York: “New Yorkers in every corner of the state are sickened by these actions and as a father of three daughters, I’m furious”The harsh treatment of the girl came as Rochester police are under scrutiny for the death of Daniel Prude last spring. Police handcuffed Prude, placed a hood on his head and pressed him to the ground until he stopped breathing.Hence the US government needs to take a firmer stand against police violence and racism so that rule of law and faith in the American justice system can be restored.Also, the criminal justice system of the United States ought to make a comprehensive plan to reform law enforcement in the US.This also means that training, recruitment and selection policy at US police departments will have to improve, so that US citizens are treated by police officers with empathy, dignity and respect.Hence US President Biden needs to take a firmer stand against police violence and racism so that rule of law and faith in the American justice system can be restored.THE GUARDIAN: "Outcry as Hong Kong University memorial to Tiananmen Square victims is removed" / Site of the Pillar of Shame at the city’s oldest university is under guard after workmen dismantled statue."Hong Kong police raid Tiananmen massacre museum" / "Hong Kong tycoon Jimmy Lai sentenced over banned Tiananmen vigil" / "West raises concerns after pro-Beijing candidates sweep Hong Kong elections"However, I am sure we will sort out these challenges eventually in China, and on that note I wish everybody a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in China, and the rest of the International Community. God bless us - each and everyone of us :)"Explainer | US-China-Taiwan: how will Joe Biden change the balance?" / President Tsai Ing-wen of the Republic of China (ROC) was among the first to tweet her congratulations to Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.CNN: "Ex-CIA chief predicts Chinese President's next moves after Pelosi's Taiwan trip" / FRANCE 24: "China’s military threat to Taiwan is much more credible than it was 20 years ago". So it's imperative that diplomacy is restored between China and the US.VOA / REUTERS: "Taiwan Says It's Willing to Engage with China, Doesn't Want to Close Door" / Taiwan is willing to make Peace with China, but on an equal basis and without political preconditions, Premier Su Tseng-chang affirmed.Hence it's imperative, that the President of the People's Republic of China - President Xi Jinping - restores diplomacy and dialogue with the Premier of the Republic of China - Su Tseng-chang - so that Peace and Harmony can be restored in the region.MOSCOW TIMES: "ICC to Open War Crimes Cases Against Russians – Report" / Prosecutor Khan said that the alleged abductions of children are being investigated. "Children cannot be treated as the spoils of war" he said in a statement.INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT (ICC): "Situation in Ukraine: ICC judges issue arrest warrants against Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin and Maria Alekseyevna Lvova-Belova" / Mr Vladimir Putin is allegedly responsible for the war crimes.JAPAN TIMES: "Xi makes it clear to Putin who is really in charge" / By throwing Moscow a lifeline Xi has further empowered Beijing" / CHINA DAILY: "Macron to begin three-day visit to China". A very constructive step to improve China-EU relations :)It should also be noted that the borders of both Ukraine and Russia have been internationally recognized and defined in 1991 - with Russia's President Boris Yeltsin recognizing Ukraine's independence. Hence Russia should honour this agreement.We encourage the People of Russia to arrange a peaceful governmental change by making Vladimir Putin resign from office - so that Peace can be restored in the world. Love and Light / Президент Российской Федерации / POTUS / The Crown / EU- China. Mark :)HEALING THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY - RESTORING PEACE AND INTERNATIONAL LAW BETWEEN THE "People's Republic of China (PRC)" AND THE REPUBLIC OF CHINA (ROC).ALJAZEERA: "China stages live-fire drills for ‘sealing off’ Taiwan" / GUARDIAN: "China-Taiwan relations: what’s behind the tensions – in 30 seconds". Hence President Xi Jinping must restore Peace between Communist China and Democratic China.Peace and Stability in the Taiwan Strait are important for the security of both the International Community and China. Hence President Xi Jinping must bring his agressive militant extremists in the Chinese Army back in line. Period.It is also worth noting that both the Republic of China and People's Republic of China are independent and separate nations; who ought to respect each others national sovereignty and territorial borders - as stipulated by International Law.GUARDIAN: "China jails two leading human rights lawyers after closed-door trial" / Xu Zhiyong and Ding Jiaxi prominent figures advocating for improved civil rights given lengthy jail terms in latest crackdown on dissent. So this is very disappointing :(Xu and Ding are prominent figures in the New Citizens Movement which sought greater transparency into the wealth of officials and for Chinese citizens to be able to exercise their civil rights as written in the constitution.Hence it is vital that China implements reforms so that Basic Human Rights are manifested in China. Freedom of Speech, Press, Association and Assembly must be made legal in China. Otherwise a revolution will be necessary. 中华人民共和国主席
