CHINA'S RELUCTANCE

Young women in China’s Yunnan Province are being sold it seems either as a wife or to Brothels and Sweat shops in Thailand; good grief what a shocking state of affairs and in the twenty first century as well. After reading this [BBC UK] news report I was flabbergasted. I mean I know we still have Piracy and on the high seas as well not just DVD piracy etc but this is a BLOODY disgrace on the part of the Chinese government; yes they are trying to clean their act up but why take so long it never took them long to reclaim Tibet did it? Course people are different according to the Communist government well one would think so Apparently known as people trafficking which I agree goes on in other countries and western ones at that but only to escape certain atrocities in their own country forced that issue. The trouble is the women leave thinking they will earn good money but are in fact tricked; I shall refer this report to my human rights link on my Blog of this but no doubt they have already heard of it. This is slightly different a baby was even sold on eBay according to this [report] Oh and boys fetch a bigger price than girls it seems, ok so this happened last year but it happened and in China as well. It did say it could have been a hoax but somehow I don’t think so.

  1. I kind of doubt the truth of E-bay selling a baby, but I agree that such atrocities need to stop. I think that as China wants to open up and make some money for themselves, they will have to either quit such sick dealings altogether or find a much better way a covering it up, which will never happen.

    Thanks for the post.

  4. I read an article in my local paper today about this, too. It was right below a story about a man in Europe randomly shooting people he thought were Jewish.

    The first thought that ran through my mind was that despite the fact my mother and I seldom get a long very well, I sure am glad she raised me. I just don't understand how people anywhere can think like that.

  5. You sure got a point there Jason but I guess circumstances ensured this happened but it should not have. The Chinese should start cleaning up their act for sure.
    I too don’t think in that manner and I don’t understand people that do either, thanks for your comment it was appreciated.
    I hope things improve somewhat with you and your Mother life is so short.
