Thinking of The Crackdown on Prostitution in Dongguan
On Feb 9, 2014,Sunday night,an anti-prostitution campaign, which involved 6,525 police officers, was launched by police in Dongguan, a city of Guangdong province in southern part of China.
As of Monday morning, 12 entertainment venues offering sexual services had been shut down and 67 people involved in sex trade were arrested and investigated, according to the Dongguan municipal public security bureau.
On one hand,it would be greatly welcomed at this news, we can see the unswerving resolution of the local government and the public security bureau in Dongguan from such a large-scale raid seeking to change all of this.
Aim to shed Dongguan’s reputation as a city of sin and get rid of the title known as “sex capital of China”;and to prove their innocence as well as build a good brand image of the city.
On the other hand,from the data comparison(6525 VS 12 and 67),the impressive massive operation actually looks more like just for show.
A large-scale campaign proved to be a large unsuccess with so little apparent results which are only a tip of the iceberg.
So it is not worth cheering for the performance at all by us,and it is more a shame than a little success for the Dongguan authorities.
That is indeed not a good news.
Then why did the Dongguan authorities launch such a large-scale crackdown on prostitution?
It is simply because a CCTV’s (China Central Television) report on its rampant and flourishing sex industry has put Dongguan under the spotlight.
Now they are forced to do so as a way to save face.
So we should not surprised at all to see a show or a numbers game(6525 VS 12 and 67).And they are obliged to mull an exit strategy to deal with the social media and the public.
But the numbers can not tell a lie,the truth is out there somewhere.
That is a good news to see the power of the social media to the public.
And who are the major victims in this crackdown on the prostitution?
Obviously,they are the prostitues who stuggle to survive.
It is not those who sell their bodies that should be condemned,but the parasites who make money out of them.
Whatever,the prostitues are human beings.
Those women ended up in the sex business,mabybe they have sick parents or siblings to support;maybe they have a bedridden family member being afflicted with a lingering desease.
And she is a girl or daughter of her elder parents.
She is a mother of her children.
She need earn enough money to surport their elder parents and raise their children left-behind in the hometown to make them live a better life.
They should have a right to be respected as a human regardless of their poverty,status and class.
If in such adverse situations,only money can fix all the issues.
Between life and death,choose life
Between money and self-esteem,choose money to survive.
Dignity always turns out to be of least significance in the face of survival.
And we should pay a due respect to them over the fundamental human rights.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
