Peter Hitchin, in his article in the Daily Mail (UK) entitled “How China has created a new slave empire in Africa,” lifts the veil on Chinese activities in Africa.
While some might point to what transpired under Western rule in past years and indicate that the People’s Republic of China (PRC) is no different and should not be demonized for their behaviors, it is the 21st century.
It is the same government that promised an Olympics free from the stain of human rights violations, the same folks with bases on both ends of the Panama Canal, intelligence gathering stations on the island of Cuba, and major port facilities in the Bahamas.
Please read through the article and think what might happen when the PRC thinks it has an upper hand in our backyard. Tibetans, Uyghurs, Mongols and now Africans know what happens and endure the abuse everyday.
