I teach at Xinjiang High School near Guangzhou. This article, The Xinjiang Procedure | The Weekly Standard, on organ harvesting was recommended by David Brooks in his Sidney Awards for 2011.
While one can’t escape the poor treatment and living conditions of the factory and construction workers as I live in the midst of that, this is an example of a more hidden injustice.
*N.B. The article gets the place wrong. It begins placing Xinjiang near Guangzhou and then talks about Northeast China. We’re in the Southeast. They must mean another Xinjiang. I asked them to check their facts.
