The Chinese government, otherwise know as the Peoples Republic of China (PRC), was led by Mao Zedong in the 20th century. He was a tyrant who made replica of the Soviet's Gulag called Laogai. He did this in order to gain economic power for what the citizens thought was the whole country, but is really just power for political leaders. This has widened the gap between the upper and lower class dramatically, causing much controversy. In the PRC constitution, it gives Chinese citizens the basic rights- "freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, freedom of association, freedom of procession and freedom of demonstration." These laws were later set aside by the government through regulations they made in both 1997 and 1998. The regulations excused such vulgar actions by allowing the forbiddance of the registration of some social groups, and broadening statements in the regulations so that they can change them as they see fit in a certain situation.
