Even with her previous experiences at Beijing University and at Big Joy Farm, Wong still held some belief that the Chinese system wasn’t as bad as it was sometimes made out to be. This event proved to her that it was. “The enormity of the massacre hit home…Although it had been years since I was a Maoist, I still had harbored some small hope for China. Now even that was gone” (259). As a reporter Wong was able to view the progression of the protests in leading up to the massacre, and in viewing it understood that the Chinese people were much more independent than they had previously demonstrated over the past 50 years. She had continuously seen the Chinese people following what they were told between learning in school or with physical labor, yet this protest was one of the first large scale displays of the unacceptance of the regime by the people, and the government did not know what to do with it. But because of this, Wong was able to recognize that the people were not reliant on this way of life that they had previously been bound to, but truly could lead for themselves and take control. The massacre awakened Wong both to the reality that the government was not acting to benefit the people, and that the people were more than capable of acting for
This breaks down to 15.2 million refugees, 26.4 million internally displaced persons and 895,000 asylum seekers. Countries that experience internal conflict and civil unrest produce the largest numbers of refugees. Afghanistan is the leading country of origin for refugees, followed by Iraq and Syria. All three countries are experiencing protracted violence. 80 percent of refugees flee to developing nations. The Salvation Army is committed to providing care for asylum seekers in Nauru and Manus Island regardless of politics or popularity. As an organisation they have provided care and support for the world’s vulnerable and suffering since 1865. Asylum seekers in the RPCs are facing uncertainty; they are isolated and incredibly vulnerable. As a Christian organisation, the Salvation Army are motivated by the love of Christ and passionate about helping vulnerable people. In Matthew 25:35-40 Jesus tells his disciples: “For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ In The Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) Jesus tells the story of a man who is beaten and left for dead on the side of the road. A religious leader passes by and ignores him. The man is then found by a complete stranger – who also happens to be from a different religious group – who stops and helps tend to his injuries. The mandate of this parable is clear; that we are to care for the suffering, the vulnerable and hurting, regardless of who they might be. We are to be a neighbour to all.

Joshua Wong does not like the current Chinese government state. Right now China is in a communist state, where the government controls the economy, and one single person holds most of the power. He doesn’t like this form of government because it is not split equal among authorities. So he wants the power to be split equally and have somebody elected by the people. He also led the umbrella movement in 2014. The umbrella movement was a movement simultaneously created by protesters during the 2014 Hong Kong
Imagine. Imagine having the continuous feeling of needing to act a certain way because that is what the government wants. Imagine having to worship in an underground church because of belonging to the "wrong" religion. Imagine being blind and not being able to learn because the government cannot accept a disability. Lastly, imagine being killed because of simply disagreeing. This is everyday life in China for many people because of what the Communist Chinese government has caused for decades. Human Rights Abuse in China has caused millions of deaths and permanent injuries. In 1979, the One Child Policy was created and ever since then the abuse has escalated into being a normal part of lives. On June 4 1989, the government took the abuse to a whole other level. This fateful day was called the Tiananmen Square crackdown. This was the day of millions of deaths. China's government truly takes human rights violations to an extreme and has caused fear among their people. The government has previously claimed

Read Martyn Stewart's Story ACTIVISM GONE BAD IN YULIN, CHINA. You'll quickly discover that it pretty much matches what we have been saying about Marc Ching's lack of credibility and his willingness to lie to his followers to produce a response that would not only bring him personal adulations but also undeserved donations.
Historians have been constantly disputed the root cause of passing the Chinese Exclusion Act, Erika Lee in her book, At America’s Gates, she said, “rather than emphasizing the ‘labor’ aspect of Chinese Exclusion”, she emphasizes, “the western part of the equation”, also she arguing that “the late 19th –century U.S. West became the birthplace of anti-Chinese legislation because of the ‘history of extending and reinforcing white supremacy in the region and its unique relationship with the federal government.” However, Mr. King is lucky; because of religious reason, he cannot stay in China anymore, he came to America to apply for political asylum in 2005. For the reason of religious, I do not talk about too much; I only can say the background was China’s only one failure

What it Means to be a Refugee A news article for the “Oregonian” by Ashley Terry There are 60 million people across the globe that have been forced to leave their home and country because it’s too dangerous. What are they called? Refugees. Refugees flee their country because of war, persecution, or natural disasters. Refugees often seek asylum in other countries, especially those whose borders touch their own. According to unhcr.org, the website for The UN Refugee Agency; by the end of 2014, there were 59.5 million refugees worldwide- that’s almost 20% of the U.S population. Just ten years ago, there were only 37.5 million people displaced worldwide. That means, out of every 122 people on Earth, one of them is seeking refuge from their
As a Christian, we are compelled to speak the word of God and to spread the good news. Would you speak the word and the good news of God if doing so was against the law? Would you trust that God would keep you safe? What if you were thrown in jail, would you still continue to serve God and do as He commands? Xiqiu Fu, also known as Bob, served God and did as He commanded throughout even though it was against the law. Bob lived in China, where Communism runs wild. Being a Christian in China was very dangerous, but Bob was involved in underground churches, illegally printing Bibles, and holding Christian schooling. The law eventually caught up with Bob and he was thrown into jail. While in jail, Bob never once doubted God. Every situation that was handed to Bob, he used it as a way to serve God or to spread his good news.

When people watch or think of their favorite movie, they don’t usually sit and analyze the underlying philosophical themes within them. However, in reality, understanding the philosophical ideas is an important aspect if someone wants to perceive the movie as a whole. So why do people not catch these important aspects within their “favorite” movies? There could be many reasons, but the two most prominent are that the viewers lack philosophical knowledge or the directors disguise these issues so well they’re almost impossible to notice. One of my favorite films, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, contains many hidden philosophical themes I never detected in a multitude of previous viewings. Although the movie contains multiple philosophical ideas, the most significantly recurring philosophical theme is that there is strength within a community and in our relationships with others. Furthermore, it is important to understand that our relationships with others can ultimately determine our choices.
The displaced populaces in camps are provided with help and security as a feature of the UNHCR's command and as a partner with the host government to keep them amassed in one region(Kobia and Cranfield, 2009). There is always a distinction between urban refugees and camp dwellers when analyzing
