"The Creator gives mankind certain inalienable rights," and human rights lawyers serve to protect messengers of God. But when the CCP throws human rights lawyers in jail and acts in full opposition to the will of God, how long can the regime be permitted to remain in place? In such a situation the law is not a law. The Chinese government violates the Constitution with impunity, and the people must stand and resist. For details see the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development.
No matter who is sitting on the throne, the old adage -that absolute power corrupts absolutely - still rings true. China can its utmost to ferret out and eradicate corruption, but until comprehensive constitutional reform is carried out to implement full democracy and the rule of law along with separation of powers and checks and balances, as well as direct election of the heads of the executive, legislative, judicial and procuratorial branches of government, democracy in China will never amount to anything more than what Xi Jinping has called "rights confined in a birdcage under order." For more, please see the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development.
Article 39 of Hong Kong’s Basic Law specifies that residents of the administrative region have the right of self-determination. The people of Hong Kong must not fall asleep while their rights are in danger. Take a lesson from the Swiss, where the signatures of 50,000 citizens are sufficient to call for a referendum, meaning that public issues can be settled with a vote with no need to take to the streets. Otherwise, when the dictatorship becomes a reality, the people will have no choice but to resist. For details, see the Charter for Permanent Peace and Development.
