    While looking back we came upon this article that Tonernews.com sent out as news on Friday June 21, 2013. We knew nothing about Forced Labor back then, but today force labor is still going on thanks to China’s Ninestar.

    Excerpt: A part of a letter found in a package of Halloween decorations. Scrawling in wobbly English on a sheet of onionskin paper, the writer said he was imprisoned at a labor camp in this northeastern Chinese town, where he said inmates toiled seven days a week, their 15-hour days haunted by sadistic guards. “Sir: If you occasionally buy this product, please kindly resend this letter to the World Human Right Organization,” said the note, which was tucked between two ersatz tombstones and fell out when the woman, Julie Keith, opened the box in her living room last October 2013. “Thousands people here who are under the persecution of the Chinese Communist Party Government will thank and remember you forever.” Click here to read the rest of the story.

    Tonernews.com: This letter is heartbreaking and to think it was 10 years ago, shows how little industries know as to what’s really behind their products. These kinds of reminders will hopefully wake people up to the inequality in human rights around the globe.

    There are more slaves today than any other time in human history.
    These are real slaves under the harshest definitions: people forced to work under threat of violence, without pay and unable to walk away. They are trapped in brothels, factories, mines, farm fields, and restaurants. More than half are women and children. ‘The Sound of Freedom’ movie and Tonernews.com both embraces the movement’s freedom for all people, especially for those who cannot breathe the air freely and are bound somewhere. This fight will take time, but for now we should all seek to abolishing slavery in our lifetimes by empowering adults and law enforcement to use the legal system to fight slave owners and to free these people by restoring their hope and dignity as human beings.
