Une organisation qui défend les Érythréens exige que l’UE cesse son soutien à un projet de construction de route, car le gouvernement érythréen y recourt au travail forcé.

Guide pour les camps de travaux forcés en Chine.

août 5, 2008

La Coalition pour l’investigation de la persécution du Falun Gong (CIPFG) vient de publier un guide sur les camps de travaux forcés à proximité des installations olympiques.

Les indications pour se rendre à ces camps sont fournies dans le guide.

Combien, parmi les 30.000 journalistes attendus à Pékin, chercheront à en savoir plus ?

NEW YORK, July 31 /PRNewswire/ – To help foreign reporters overcome the
Chinese government’s media censorship and shed light on closely shielded
rights violations, the Coalition to Investigate the Persecution of Falun Gong
(CIPFG) released today a detailed guide to detention facilities located within
miles of Olympic venues and known for their severe abuse of Falun Gong
prisoners of conscience.
The guide, entitled “Torture Outside the Olympic Village: A Guide to China’s
Labor Camps,” is available online here or
PDF at:
“Many of us have heard stories about China’s gulags, but when you discover how
close some of these hellholes are to Olympic venues, it’s sickening,” says
Clive Ansley, China Monitor for Lawyers’ Rights Watch Canada and North
American President of CIPFG.
The guide details seven detention facilities, in or near Beijing, Qingdao,
Shanghai, Tianjin, Qinhuangdao, and Shenyang, and includes:

– Map: A map showing the location of the facility, the location of the
closest Olympic venue, and English-language directions to the camp
from the nearest airport and train station.
– Description of facility: A photo, general description of the facility,
details of its prisoner population, overall conditions, and the name,
address and phone number (if available).
– Products and show tours: Products known to have been manufactured at
the site and details of prior show tours to the facility, when
– Individual cases: Brief individual case summaries of current and
former prisoners of conscience, the abuse they have suffered in
custody, and whether they are available for interview.

“We hope this guide will draw international attention to the innocent
individuals held at these locations,” says Ansley. “It should particularly aid
journalists in investigating the plight of adherents of the Falun Gong, who
make up a huge percentage of labor camp detainees and have suffered a brutal
campaign of persecution for nine years.”

Note on censorship: Contrary to promises of “complete freedom” for foreign
media, the Chinese authorities have blocked access to Falun Gong-related
websites from the Olympic Media Center in a deal struck with the International
Olympic Committee. To circumvent such censorship, CIPFG suggests the following
– Request that colleagues outside China e-mail or fax a copy of the
guide to you inside China.
– Use circumvention tools available at
to access the guide despite the censorship.
