Dear friends.
                       Ive just been reading about a letter smugled out of a prison camp called Masanji in China, this letter was hidden in festive decorations & turned up  state side The letter alegedly reports on members of the Falun Gong working in dangerous conditions to produce goods for the world markets and notes that people have died from toxins in the afore mentioned goods, now if they are dying from this & its on your shelfs in your stores we have a double issue in the west. Firstly the issue of slave labour then there is the health issue there has been many recalls world wide in relation to goods sourced in China as they were using lead based paints on childrens toys @ just about everything they produced.where was this purchased ? in kmart which is an outlet of Sears Holdings. I would like to think neither kmart or Sears Holdings were aware of this but the question is WHYNOT. there is an onus on all corporations to know how & where goods are sourced as laid down by the law &  our obligation to our fellow  brothers & sisters who are jailed for exercising in public that is why China puts its citizens to work camps, you have probably have seen this on television Ive seen this up close its not about the workout its about free will & Red China will not allow its people to have an ideda of their own.Those of you who live stateside need to check this out as I will in my country.
                    This once more shows us we need to be aware of the on going abuse of Tibet & its people, as China has no respect or duty of care to its own outsiders will fare much worse. 
                                                            John Byrne.

Thank you John. The Corporations KNOW what is going on but it is allowed all in the name of profit for a few to get very rich on the backs of many.

The cheap products that have flooded our market and pushed to us as a wonderful thing is the exact opposite.

Workers in the USA were paid fairer wages that had been negotiated over time, the Labor Unions had fought for worker safety and environmental laws.

By taking these jobs overseas to Countries that do not have these safe guards, we not only lost our jobs and many citizens in usa now have fallen into poverty, but the workers are exploited in other Countries who work under horrific conditions and earn little for doing so. The fire in Bangladesh is one current example.

The cheap products have come at a high price that the common people are bearing along with our environments. The worlds people need to unite in that what happens to our brothers and sisters over there is affecting us here and vice versa.

The Chinese work camps that people are sent by having only expressed their personal religious way or political opinion is no different than the Gulags of the Soviet Union, only now Multi-National Corporations are part of this evil system and turn a blind eye to it for their gold coins they pile higher.

Not only are products have toxins, but our animals have been poisoned in their foods, the building material is toxic and people have lost their health and entire homes here in Florida due to the sheet rock imported in from China. The clothes fall apart in a few washings as the thread is so weak, so it is not a savings. Then if there is no job to be had it can't be bought no matter how cheap it is sold.

I see little being done by the Leaders who protect the Corporate interests over the people's interest. Our Country speaks of human rights but does little to protect anyone's human rights. When we do so call protect human rights it's a bunch of crap laid out to get our citizens to lay down their lives for the Corporate interests of others.

Heck we don't even protect our own human rights as this Country allows millions to suffer each year with no medical care of any type, that it is and has been 80% unemployment for the American Indian on some reservations and others are not fairing a lot better.

Our inner cities crumbled and the youth without jobs or hope are shooting each other with assault weapons and the disillusioned middle class drugged out on psychotropics pushed by the Pharmacutical Corporations go on massacres. All whom make out is the CEO's and Shareholders of weapons and pills.

Is all tied in Multi-National Corporations and the Puppet Leaders of Countries that live well while killing of the common people around the world and treating them with no respect along with the Earth.

The worlds people need to join in unity to combat this situation, but that is why the propaganda is all out there to keep us yelling and hating each other so we won't come together and save ourselves.

Dear John,
I was very dismayed to read about the abuses and practices that are ongoing in China, but not surprised.
We do not need to purchase ANYTHING that comes from China-- which would send a undeniable message to this nation and only buy what is produced here the US. If everyone would heed this message and support this effort, it will send a strong statement to the corporations that have outsourced to China. But I am not holding my breath on this account. Most people are looking for a bargain, even if it comes with a high cost in the end result!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
