Jonathan Watts: Blood and coal: the human cost of cheap Chinese goods

From Guardian Unlimited:

“Someone has snitched. The security men are coming. Shut the door, close the curtains and stay quiet.”

Moments later, footsteps outside. A rap on the door. A mother squeezes her child tightly to her breast to muffle his cries. An older woman holds back sobs, her eyes red with tears. Two others sit on a bed, exchanging anxious glances. It is my fault the security are here, bringing trouble to people who have already suffered too much. But why is a meeting between four middle-aged women and a foreign journalist considered such a threat?
