State Council Information Office Published “2017 Human Rights Record of the United States”

According to Guangming Daily, on April 24. the State Council Information Office published the “2017 Human Rights Record of the United States” and the “Chronology of Human Rights Violations of the United States in 2017.” The 2017 Human Rights Record of the United States claimed that in the “2017 National Human Rights Report” that the U.S. State Department issued on April 20, the U.S. continued to be a ‘human rights defender’ and claimed themselves to be the moral magistrates while blaming other countries for their domestic affairs and human rights conditions and making it look like that the U.S. is the only country in the world with a perfect human rights situation. Looking back on 2017, people with a sense of justice will find that the U.S.’s own human rights record is still notorious and continues to deteriorate.” The 2017 Human Rights Record of the United States was divided into the following sections: preface; serious violations of civil rights; systemic racial discrimination that further split the country; serious abuses of American-style democracy; continued deterioration of polarization between rich and poor; discrimination and physical abuse by specific groups; and continued brutal violations of human rights in other countries. The 2017 Human Rights Record consists of 10,000 words and the Chronology of Human Rights Violations consists of 9,000 words.
