Exposing Products Made with Slave Labor in Chinese Prisons and Labor Camps
(Clearwisdom.net) The Clearwisdom website has published a large number of reports exposing the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in the prisons and forced labor camps in China. In addition to the torture of Falun Gong practitioners, a major means of persecution is slave labor. In exposing the persecution, the details about the names of products produced through slave labor can be easily overlooked. These products are either sold in China or exported to other countries, including many Western countries. Many people may have purchased these products. Posting the information about such products on the Clearwisdom website may arouse readers' attention and help them understand the true scope of the persecution behind such goods.
As an example, the Clearwisdom website published an article on December 17, 2011, titled “The Forced Labor Persecution behind the 'Jin-long-yu' (Gold Dragon Fish) Brand” (http://www.clearwisdom.net/html/articles/2012/1/13/130684.html). “Jin-Long-Yu” is a brand of cooking oil commonly seen in grocery stores and supermarkets in China. Most people barely notice the small tag hanging around the bottle's neck, and it's even more unlikely that people would know that the knots were manually tied by Falun Gong practitioners in the Shanghai Women’s Prison.
If Clearwisdom publishes information about slave labor-made products exported overseas, it may arouse the concern of overseas readers. Overseas Falun Gong practitioners and human rights groups can also use these facts to further expose the Chinese communist regime's use of slave labor to persecute Falun Gong practitioners.
