Plea for help from Chinese labor camp worker paid $1.61 per MONTH found stuffed in Oregon woman’s Halloween decorations from Kmart

Oregon mother Julie Keith expected to find Styrofoam headstones in the graveyard kit she bought at Kmart for Halloween.

What she didn’t expect was a desperate plea for help from one of the Chinese laborers forced to make the holiday decorations in brutal conditions.


The 42-year-old charity worker from Portland discovered the chilling letter hidden between the two novelty headstones when she opened the kit in October.

‘Sir: If you occasionally buy this product, please kindly resend this letter to the World Human Right Organization,’ the unsigned note, that was folded into eighths, read.


‘Thousands people here who are under the persicution [sic] of the Chinese Communist Party Government will thank and remember you forever.’


The letter’s author said the Halloween product was made in Masanjia Labor Camp in Shenyang, China, where laborers are forced to work for 15 hours a day without time off on the weekends and holidays.

Of course, we should demand human rights conditions for every country we trade with, but that would be too much to ask for.  And no, this is not Obama's fault, the Chinese have a tradition of treating their people like animals, even since prehistoric times.

No one is blaming Obama for that.

Please see other parts of the forum for what we are blaming him for.
