There are lot of human rights issues and injustices. Here are a few of them.

1. Mistreatment of women. They are dehumanized. Remember the scene when one of the soldiers was going to take advantage of the women, before the protagonist's father stepped in and defended her.

2. People's property were taken away by the local militia for their own gain with no punishment.

3. People were killed with little thought of life or death.

4. Religious oppression towards people who did not believe in what the local powers believed.
