China: despite its official policy of not interfering in the internal affairs of other countries, on Feb. 28th, China responded to U.S. official criticisms of its human rights policies with “Human Rights Record of the United States in 2013,” a white paper from the Information Office of the State Council. The paper cites instances of racial, ethnic, sexual, and economic persecution, discrimination and lack of protection for the rights of children. Relying on U.S. and United Nations sources, among a wide and familiar variety of domestic crimes the report also faults civilian deaths in drone strikes abroad, gun related domestic violence, government surveillance, homelessness, the treatment of indigenous peoples and 80,000 U.S. prisoners held in solitary confinement – some for over 40 years. Among faults noted: the U.S. has either not ratified or is not a party to the UN Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities or the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
