Hi Paula:

The PRC isn't socialist - let alone communist. It's capitalist.
Repressing workers - while claiming to be defending workers - is
what happens routinely in capitalist nations. Indeed, the taking away
of collective bargaining rights of public sector unions in
wisconsin was rationalized by saying it was needed to protect
the best interests of 'the people', including working people.
