Though China is rapidly developing as an industrial powerhouse and major exporter, it has repeatedly failed to take the same important strides with environmental protection and workers' rights. While the country expands as a key player in international co

The Chinese have little regard for Humans or Animals.
Many Chinese have registered to take classes on Humanity.

@ J M A, don't forget we share blame.. by buying crap at 99˘ stores and Walmart, and a zillion other places.

They are not going to put lives over profit as long as the demand is there.
I know most of us are experiencing really difficult times right now, but buy American or make do will go far in helping the chinese workers and our country.
And don't forget about all the recall of jusy toys alone that have been found to contain lead..so pleasr check out ANY toy you buy a child for Christmas.
Lead poisoning isn't on any kid's wish list!

China has to get its act together about people and animals. They are as backward and outdated as the old time Muslims. They have modern toys but stone age brains.

Ha Ha China! You hold girl children as almost worthless, and second borns as practically illegal-well a family member over here adopted one of your little girls and she is going to have a fantastic life. And she won't be breathing and drinking poison. (so long as we keep our own de-regulationists in line that is) So, she was nothing to you, but everything over here. Keep devaluing your little girls and you will miss out on alot.

It can be hard to appreciate the global portrait of our problems with our noses constantly pressed against the canvass.

In these times , corporations have no flag nor country, but rather only mailing addresses.

The assault on such things as civil rights, the environment , governmental integrity our conducted as global campaigns , where focusing on any one country or front simply invites the opposition to dance around confrontation.

Every time you pull out your wallet , your funding the demise of your rights , health , environment and government.

what is wrong with all of you ? Why can't any or every one tell our American Government that stop putting WAR PROFIT BEFORE LIVES OF AMERICANS THAT ARE BEING KILLED EVERY DAY. AND WHY CAN'T ANY OF YOU VOICE YOUR OPINION ABOUT GOING TO WAR WITH IRAN. OR WILL YOU WAIT TILL WE KILL A MILLION IRANIANS LIKE WE DID TO IRAQ.

i have been drawn to watch a lot of videos about the life of Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama and in them we can learn so much of the horror inflicted on these peaaceful people.. it takes an awful lot to draw a Buddhist monk or nun into conflict and this is doing it.. many have been and are imprisoned and tortured! watch the doc told about in this link and please read the comments of the people. we have so much to learn about healing, the power of LIGHT ~ thanks http://www.amazon.com/The-Knowledge-of-Healing/dp/B004P3T4OQ

ok i'm sorry but the chinese don't seem to give a damn about anything...people or animal. bears are tourtured, tigers, elephants, and rhinos are killed for "traditional" medicine--even though nothing in it has any medicinal value.

It took Unionization before the U.S. industry was forced to create a safe environment for their workers and to stop exploitation of children and women for cheap labor, set just work hours, fair compensation, and the other protections for human life. If this is what it will take in China, then that is what they need. However, the U.S. has leverage in these matters if we only used it as they depend so much on our purchasing their products; stop doing this and they will soon realize we mean business.

Oh, I'm pretty sure this will work! The Chinese are notorious for bowing to public pressure, particularly from people who owe them trillons of dollars!

In my opinion, Mural B. has the best idea. We don't dare, however, annoy them too much. If they call in the loans our economy will be shattered and it will make Mr. Obama's "fundamental transfomation" look like light housekeeping.

Let's deal with our own issues, the debt high among them, and then fuss with the Chinese.

I have so little hopes regard China. They will own the world in few decades and submit human race to a new kind of slavery they will probably invent. I am against China, I boycott not buying anything which comes from there, and untill they change the policy regards Tibet and human rights, they r dead to me

The Chinese and Japanese are always talking about spirituality.They are always talking about the body being one with the mind and yet they seem so mindless!!!!!Perhaps I am generalizing too much but I just don't hear too much to the contrary.Where is the consience of the people?Have they any at all?

It's definitely worth signing and trying to help plead the case, but sadly, I seriously doubt that the Chinese will care one bit what "we" think.

Where does all these pollution and poor human labor comes from?

Majority comes from American corporation (Apple, IBM, ) and Japanese (Sony, ) and Taiwanese Companies (Foxconn, etc) residing hazardous factories building in China rivers near villages. Desktops, iPads, iPhones, Laptop, Notebook all comes from these Japanese, Korea, Taiwanese and American manufacture in China because Greedy, Profit of Americans don't have humanity for people and environment. Some of people blame the government.

Why not blame on consumers in USA, Europe, Japan, Taiwan, Korean for use of products pollutes air, water, land around the globe.

Look more detail on why China is under labor, polluted instead pointing China as Evil country. Devilish countries are USA, Japan, Taiwan, and its consumers for wanting latest technology without care about environment (Air, Land, Water). If effect (Pollute) one country, It effect Earth. Not just One specific country.

As regarding human and animals in China, You should visit Taiwan, Korea, Japan where they treat in-human to animals. In human, Taiwanese and Japanese treat worker as labor (14-16 hours / 6 days a week). Some even harsh in some area (Unidentified location, and not in world news) work women, children, similar or worse in those factories. Because those women, children can not escape in enclosed island or factories.
