  • Santa's Workshop - Inside China's Slave Labour Toy Factories

    Sometimes we have no choice, we work till dawn. When you work all night you become dizzy and your eyes hurt because you can't take any breaks. SANTA'S WORKSHOP takes you to the real world of China's toy factories. Workers tell us about long working hours, low wages, and dangerous work places. Those who protest or try to organize trade unions risk imprisonment. Low labor costs attract more and more companies to China. Today more than 75% of our toys are made in China. But this industry takes its toll on the workers and on the environment. The European (and American) buyers blame bad conditions on the Chinese suppliers. But they say that increasingly hard competition gives them no option. Who should we believe? And what can you do to bring about a fairer and more humane toy trade?

    In this edition of Inside China Today we examine all the preparation and efforts surrounding the build-up to the National Day parade. The parade itself was well planned and executed. An estimated 80,000 students and 60,000 soldiers participating in the main parade. The current Chinese President Hu Jintao was in attendance, as well as Premier Wen Jiabao and former Chinese President Jiang Zemin. The China Daily newspaper, cited a spokesperson for the Defense Ministry, saying the parade would be held in an economical manner as the authorities planned to spend only 300 million Yuan (US$44 million) on the event. The event itself was meticulously organised with security personnel flooding Beijing, and some unique measures carried out to ensure the event was perfect. Businesses along the Chang...

  • Life Inside a Secret Chinese Bitcoin Mine

    Subscribe to Motherboard Radio today! http://apple.co/1DWdc9d In October of last year Motherboard gained access to a massive, secretive Bitcoin mine housed within a repurposed factory in the Liaoning Province in rural northeast China. This is the infrastructure that keeps the digital currency’s decentralized network up and running, and its operators are profiting big time. The mine we visited is just one of six sites owned by a secretive group of four people, part of a colossal mining operation that, as of our visit, cumulatively generated 4,050 bitcoins a month, equivalent to a monthly gross of $1.5 million.

The event itself was meticulously organised with security personnel flooding Beijing, and some unique measures carried out to ensure the event was perfect. Businesses along the Changan Street (the main parade route) were closed; those living along the main street were forbidden from opening their windows; rockets were fired into the sky a few days prior to the event to disperse cloud and smog; and thousands of pigeons were rounded up and locked away. Military personnel went through extensive training drills to prepare for the event. Some drills included standing completely still for an hour, not blinking for over 40 seconds, and the use of lasers beams to ensure no one was out of rank and file. Further many petitioners and dissidents were kept away from the capital or under house arrest.

- Up to 1 million women trafficked for sex in Guangdong - Cities and schools in lockdown for national holiday - Quake victims miss family during Mid-Autumn festival ********************** Up to 1 million women trafficked for sex in Guangdong Human trafficking is a serious problem in the 21st century. According to HumanTrafficking.org, in China, women and children are trafficked for sexual and labor exploitation in Malaysia, Thailand, the United Kingdom, the United States, Australia, Europe, Canada, Japan, Italy, Burma, Singapore, South Africa, and Taiwan. Chinese website Boxun,net has reported on human trafficking in Guangdong Province. According to information supplied by a variety of sources, the Family Planning Office, FPO, in Guangdong has recruited thugs and ruffians to carry out raids, as well as fine and arrest people. The website report says the thugs are not paid by the Family Planning Office. According to the site, the thugs take advantage of the fact that the Family Planning Department is never punished by higher authorities, and engage in human trafficking, Boxun.net says that young women who moved from rural areas to work in the cities are abducted by those thugs and gang-raped repeatedly until they succumb to prostitution. Some women have escaped and reported the situation to the police, only to be arrested for prostitution and sent to a labour camp. A 2006 US Department of Human Trafficking Report states that some local officials are complicit in trafficking, including village leaders who sought to prevent police from rescuing victims. Boxun.net said that the thugs from the Family Planning Office offer young women and money to local police on a regular basis. The HumanTracfficking.org website says that China hasnt adopted a comprehensive law to criminalise all forms of human trafficking. However the criminal code criminalizes forced prostitution, abduction, and commercial sexual exploitation of girls under the age of 14. The penalty could be death. I ask our listeners if thats good enough? According to the investigation, an FPO on the outskirts of Guangzhou and Shenzhen has jurisdiction over 200 -300 thousand migrant workers. In this region, as many as 1000 women were gang-raped and injured. Based on this, Boxun.net estimated that victims in Guangdong could reach up to 100 thousand per year. Human trafficking began in the region in the early 90s. Since then, at least 1 million women have been victimised, the report says. Women who died during gang-rape were cremated by authorities. Their families were often told they died because of complications during abortion procedures. Victims and families have no hope of justice because their cases are rejected by the Communist Party courts. Public outrage in the Guangdong region among peasant workers has reached on all time high.
