Collection of Human Right Poems

Besides, it embodies the works of many authors reflecting people's consciousness and championship for their rights. The book describes that during the social transitional period from autarchy to democracy, the real-life normality is that common people's human rights are trampled by polity. Thus, the consciousness and championship for human rights are intimidation and aggression of Chinese despotism integral.
