REPORT: China Likely Using Slave Labor to Build Your Favorite Consumer Goods

Published

on

On March 1, 2020, Twitter user Nathan Attrill tweeted about the Chinese government’s forced transfer of Uyghurs and ethnic minorities to factories building up goods that are casually consumed in the West.

He linked to a report from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) titled “Uyghurs for Sale.”

In a report titled “Uyghurs for Sale”, Vicky Xiuzhong Xu, Danielle Cave, Dr James Leibold, Kelsey Munro, & Nathan Ruser detailed how the Chinese government “has facilitated the mass transfer of Uyghur and other ethnic minority citizens from the far west region of Xinjiang to factories across the country.” The report contends that these conditions “strongly suggest forced labour” with Uyghurs working “in factories that are in the supply chains of at least 83 well-known global brands in the technology, clothing and automotive sectors, including Apple, BMW, Gap, Huawei, Nike, Samsung, Sony and Volkswagen.”

From 2017 to 2019, more than 80,000 Uyghurs were forced out of Xinjiang to work in factories throughout China and good portion of them were sent straight to detention camps. However, the ASPI report contends that “The estimated figure is conservative and the actual figure is likely to be far higher.” Similarly, the authors noted that “In factories far away from home, they typically live in segregated dormitories,3 undergo organised Mandarin and ideological training outside working hours,4 are subject to constant surveillance, and are forbidden from participating in religious observances.5

ASPI added that “small number of brands including Abercrombie & Fitch advised they have instructed their vendors to terminate their relationships with these suppliers in 2020. Others, including Adidas, Bosch and Panasonic, said they had no direct contractual relationships with the suppliers implicated in the labour schemes, but no brands were able to rule out a link further down their supply chain.”

Known China critic Gordon Chang commented “US Customs should impound all products from #China until the importer can prove that those goods were not made with slave or forced labor. Obviously, the current system is not working. I do not want my running shoes to be a crime against humanity. #Nike #Uighurs #EastTurkistan

Although China has enthralled many international observers, it is among the most authoritarian countries in the globe,

It has no right to bear arms, freedom of speech, or freedom of religion.

Americans with a conscious should think twice about doing business with Chinese companies that have ties to the Chinese Communist Party.

Bloodthirsty Mexican Cartel Leaves Ominous Message for Border Patrol Agents in Texas

Published

on

Border Patrol agents found a message from the Los Zetas Cartel at the end of June.

At the time, the agents were patrolling the area in response “to a large drug load crossing into the U.S.”, according to a report from Breitbart News.

The city in question, Rio Grande City, Texas, is located in Starr County which is on the border with Mexico. Breitbart News noted that this area is “under the control of the Gulf Cartel, due to the small cartel-controlled community of Camargo directly across the Rio Grande.”

Breitbart Texas has covered a turf war going down between Cartel Del Noreste (CDN)/Los Zetas and the Gulf Cartel over the last year. On June 9, 2020, a shooting kicked off between the two cartels near Comales, which is south of Rio Grande City and not too far away from it.

U.S. border agents were put on notice about cartel members attempting to escape into Texas at the time. Border agents discovered armored vehicles that demonstrated clear burn marks, likely the result of the use of explosives against them. Strangely, there were no bodies found near the scene.

The message that Los Zetas left behind on June 26 was intended to put border patrol on notice that this area was their new turf.

Mexico is clearly a failed state, with well-equipped cartels running around and making state security forces look foolish

U.S. needs to put emphasis on border security and restricting immigration if it wants to get a handle of this situation.

Too bad it’s focusing all of its time defending other countries’ borders.
