A Net Campaign for the Parents of Slaves

On Global Voices, Bob Chen reminds us that the families of brick kiln slave workers are still desperately searching for their lost children, despite the lack of prolonged media or government interest in helping:

Calling-For-Their-KidsAccording to the attorney Xu Zhiyong, the lawyers in Xi’an had all received order that they shouldn’t litigate for the kiln workers for any kind of compensation. And the many lawsuits on the process are still pending, leaving the parents like Zhang, whose son got seriously hurt and burnt in the kiln, suffering from an endless waiting. That’s why the famous blogger IAMV in bulloger.com launched a donation project, which later evolved into a mass action in blogsphere, to aid these helpless parents.
