Chinese Communist Party condemned by bipartisan resolution for 100 years of human rights abuses

In preparation for the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) centenary anniversary next week, a bipartisan group of lawmakers submitted a resolution Friday condemning China’s human rights abuses over the last 100 years.

Led by Wisconsin Republican Mike Gallagher, the resolution lists atrocities committed by the CCP against its own people dating back to 1930 and pledges to stand with the “Chinese people in their struggle for liberty.”

The resolution was co-sponsored by Republican Reps. Michael McCaul of Texas, Elise Stefanik of New York, and Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania. Three Democratic House members also signed onto the bill, Reps. Ruben Gallego of Arizona, Josh Gottheimer of New Jersey, and Jared Golden of Maine.

More than 30 instances of human rights abuses were listed by the lawmakers, ranging from the annexation of Tibet in 1951 to the “grotesque human rights abuses” against the Uighurs in Xinjiang starting in 2017.
