A whistle-blower who was tortured in a Chinese prison for exposing Amazon’s horrific slave labour operations asks for an apology

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A Chinese whistle-blower by the name of Tang Mengfing who says he was imprisoned and tortured by the communist regime after exposing Amazon for abusing its employees and treating them like slaves is now asking for an apology.

According to reports, Tang spent two miserable years under the heavy boot of oppression for reporting on substandard working conditions at factories where Alexa-enabled spy devices are manufactured.

Tang spent several years investigating the horrific working conditions at Foxconn factories, which produce Amazon Echo and Echo Dot devices as well as Kindle devices and various Apple products like the iPhone. He learned that school-aged children are forced to work extreme hours, often without pay.

“Tang alleged that school-aged children were put to work in the Foxconn factory, and that many were forced to work beyond the allotted 36 hours of overtime in a month, with some exceeding over 100 hours – essentially functioning as unpaid workers beyond their allotted hours,” reported The Post Millennial.

Tang was later punished for revealing all of this and more. He recently told The Guardian that during his imprisonment, he was beaten and tortured by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials, who appear to be working in lockstep with Jeff Bezos and other tech gurus to exploit children.

“My father always taught me that I should be a good person and, because I followed my heart and believed that justice should be served, I reported the serious violations at Hengyang Foxconn,” Tang is quoted as saying. “Yet my imprisonment has caused such great harm to me and my family.”

Buying from Amazon means supporting child abuse, torture and authoritarianism

Amazon was eventually investigated and Foxconn was fined by the Chinese government for Labour violations. However, Tang says the company should have done more to protect him from being punished and abused by local authorities in retaliation.

Tang says he was handcuffed in stress positions, slapped by guards, beaten and forced to sign a confession stating that he lied about the allegations he made against the Foxconn factory.

“I refused to sign seven times, and they got angry and handcuffed me to the bottom of the iron frame, unable to stand, squat, sit; only bending, half squatting all night. In the early morning, I could not stand anymore,” Tang told The Guardian.

“I think Amazon should give me an explanation, tell me if I really deserve to be sent to jail? If not, Amazon should give me an apology, along with its partner, Foxconn, to assist me to appeal for a redress, and provide compensation.”

At one point, China Labour Watch director Li Qiang wrote to Amazon owner Jeff Bezos urging him to intervene on behalf of Tang. That letter stated that it is “unacceptable and unfair that Tang Mingfang is serving jail time for trying to help Amazon improve the labour conditions in its supplier factory.”

Bezos never responded to the letter and Amazon never offered any support whatsoever for Tang. Bezos was apparently too busy building rocket ships and hoarding his billions of dollars in ill-gotten profits.

According to China Labour Watch, Foxconn’s revenge against Tang violated the third section “Grievance Mechanism and Whistle-blower Protections” of the Amazon Supply Chain Standards, page 5, “Ethical Behaviour,” which reads:

“Amazon expects suppliers to protect worker whistle-blower confidentiality and prohibit retaliation against workers who report workplace grievances. Suppliers are required to create a mechanism for workers to submit their grievances in a confidential and anonymous manner and maintain an effective process to investigate and address worker concerns. Workers employed by subcontractors must have a mechanism in place to bring their concerns to management teams above the subcontractor.”

After reading this, how many of you will stop buying from “amazon” or “apple”? Answer: zero.

If you feed your abuser they will abuse you.

This abuse by “amazon” was going on at least two years ago, and no doubt much longer. And, despite what this article tries to make out, it’s happening in every “amazon” warehouse the world over. I first read of it in warehouses in america. It’s not a “communist” thing – it’s a money thing. They own you. You are a slave. Are you getting it yet? Their latest wheeze is a program that monitors where your eyes are pointing when you’re sat in front of a computer – it sounds an alarm if you look away from the screen. Remember how impressed you were when “facial recognition” was “invented” by those “clever people” in universities. Well, here’s the result. They’re selling this to all the other slavepen owners and are trying to sell it to “schools” (to prevent all those pesky kids “not paying attention”).

Ever read “1984”? But that could never happen right?

For decades you’ve been feeding off the slaves in asia – they work their lives away and you strut around with your iCruds pretending to matter. Now it’s coming home.

Still not going to fight back? No, thought not.

Problem is lack of competition: no one has bothered to create a viable work-alike alternative, and the customers simply do not have time to visit separate web sites to purchase every item they need. You could implement Amazon’s business model on a local, state or national scale, and stock the most common items at least.
