Human rights violations have occurred all over the world and most instances because of a benefit of the state over the rights of our fellow human beings! Unfortunately the political divide existing in Hong Kong and Communist China is one that will not easily solved but we as a nation should insist to the Chinese Government that ANY economic gains involving trade negotiations will only come with them recognizing the rights of the people in order to illicit the favor of the US and it's allies! We are not standing in judgement of their Communist ideology but only that they respect the rights of others, particularly Hong Kong to exercise theirs!
