Human rights in China

Human rights in China are a matter of dispute between the Chinese government, international organizations, the people of China, and other countries with an interest in China. Prominent organizations such as the U.S. State Department, Amnesty International, and the Human Rights Watch have all accused China of restricting free speech, the free movement of persons, and sociopolitical rights. They say that China does say to improve "national culture" and development. China claims that this isn't really the case and that its human rights record is improving.
