China has unveiled sweeping changes to some of its most controversial laws including its one-child policy and its forced labour camps. The major policy shift also includes reductions on the application of the death penalty, reforms to a widely abused “petition” system and changes in a residency registration scheme.
The changes, revealed by the official Xinhua news agency, were announced days after a meeting of the country’s top Communist Party leaders.
Couples will now be allowed to have two children if one of the parents is an only child, significantly widening the exceptions to a rule introduced in 1979 to control China’s then exploding population, now the world’s largest.
The one-child policy is controversial both within and outside China, the policy has at times been brutally enforced, with authorities relying on permits, fines and in some cases forced sterilisations and late-term abortions, often triggering public outrage :: Read the full article »»»»

We all remember the shock late last year when young Pakistani girl, Malala Yousafzai, was shot in the head by a Taliban assassin. The teenager recovered, resettled in the UK and then heroically addressed the United Nations on her 16th birthday – this month – vowing not to be silenced by terrorists.
Nine months after a gunman shot her on a bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley for demanding education for girls, Malala Yousafzai received multiple standing ovations at the United Nations Youth Assembly in New York. She addressed nearly 1,000 students from around the world and her speech was immediately hailed for its power.
Bravely, Ms Yousafzai showed the attack on her had done nothing to dim her passion for girls’ education. She has not returned to Pakistan, due to persistent Taliban threats against her.
In what can only be described as a surprising turnaround, a Taliban commander has written to Ms Yousafzai, saying he regretted her shooting last year by militants and has urged her to come home :: Read the full article »»»»

UPDATE: WikiLeaks suspect Bradley Manning has been formally charged ahead of a court martial that could see the United States soldier sentenced to life in prison. Manning was charged with 22 counts, the most serious of which is “aiding the enemy”, for allegedly turning over a trove of classified US documents to WikiLeaks in one of the most serious intelligence breaches in US history. The 24-year-old is accused of passing hundreds of thousands of military field reports from Iraq and Afghanistan and US diplomatic cables to WikiLeaks between November 2009 and May 2010, when he was serving in Iraq. The leak of the military documents shed light on civilian deaths, while the diplomatic cables sparked a firestorm by disclosing the private remarks of heads of state and candid observations by senior US officials. The US government slammed the disclosure of the documents by WikiLeaks, saying it threatened national security and the lives of foreigners working with the military and US embassies. WikiLeaks supporters view the site as a whistleblower that exposed US wrongdoing and see Manning as a political prisoner.

Hundreds of adopted children in the United Kingdom have been contacted by their birth parents, who used social media sites like Facebook to track them down. One adoption support group in Victoria says the process can be illegal, and a mother of three adopted children in the UK says it can be highly traumatic. Adopted children can sometimes spend their whole lives wondering about their birth parents because the search process through official channels can take years. One adopted teenager in the UK received a message on Facebook saying “Hello, I am your father. I have been searching for you ever since you were stolen by social services. You look beautiful. I love you so much.” The father who wrote the message is a registered paedophile, whose children were removed by social services and later adopted.
It’s a development that has concerned some psychologists, who fear the destabilizing impact that kind of sudden contact could have. In Britain, health services fear that some birth parents, and in particular those who may have been abusive in the past, could track down their birth children via sites like Facebook to establish or re-establish contact.
Some psychologists have reported that adopted children have displayed troubled behavior after their parents had unexpectedly re-established contact. Read the full article »»»»
