Recently, the U.S. State Department issued the Human Rights Report 2012 and said that China's human rights situation is “worsening.” Criticizing China blindly, the report ignores the huge progress of China's human rights cause, and turns a blind eye on the practical work done in improving its human rights situation.

Actions speak louder than words. In 2011, China fully promoted the work of guaranteeing human rights in the institutionalization and legalization areas. The various goals and tasks of the National Human Rights Acton Plan (2009 – 2010) have all be reached and completed on time. While assessing the implementation of the first human rights action plan, China is also working on making the second human rights action plan.

Legal rights and interests of China's ethnic minorities are guaranteed. Currently, all 55 ethnic minorities in China have their deputies to the National People's Congress. In autonomous regions, the covering rate of the nine-year compulsory education has reached 100 percent. Ethnic minorities can freely and equally learn, use and develop their own languages.

In order to further protect labors' rights and interests, the All-China Federation of Trade Unions has made the Work Plan of Deeply Promoting the Collective Wage Negotiation System (2011 – 2013) and is fully promoting the construction of the collective wage negotiation system.

In order to crack down on crimes of trafficking in women and children, the Chinese government made the China National Plan of Action on Combating Trafficking in Women and Children (2008-2012) .
