Gordon Chang, Daily Beast, @GordonGChang , clarifies the message from a package of Christmas cards that a little girl opened in London, via the distributor Tesco, which has cancelled the contract with China: “We are foreign prisoners in Shanghai forced to work; when you read this, contact Peter Humphrey.” The Chinese Foreign Ministry denies that China is forcing slave labor.
