China’s Labour Camps: Please Think Before You Shop This Season!

http://www.cnn.com/2013/11/06/world/asia/china-labor-camp-halloween-sos/index.html

This story tells how some of the things we import from China are made.  Do you really want to support that type of regime?  Do you want your money telling China it is okay to imprison people, forcing them to make things we really don’t need?  I for one am not buying anything made in China, until they prove they pay a decent wage, are not forcing labour, and are willing to adhere to human rights standards.  Yes, it is a different culture than the one I live in, but that does not mean I will condone that behaviour by sending my hard-earned money to support a morally and socially wrong practice.
