Why We Still Don’t Sell “Catholic” Gifts From China

From CNA:

Shangai, China, Mar 5, 2011 / 06:20 pm (CNA).- A Chinese woman who protested the country’s strict one-child policy was re-arrested and taken to an unknown labor camp after she was initially released from a different facility one day earlier on medical parole.

Fifty year-old Mao Hengfeng, who lives in Shanghai, was seized by over 10 security agents from her home on Feb. 23 and transported to an undisclosed labor camp. The move is being seen as the latest effort by the Chinese government to suppress suspected dissidents, following online calls for a Jasmine-style revolution.

Her husband, Wu Xuewei, told Reuters that officials gave him a photocopy of a written notice that claimed his wife had taken part in “illegal activities.” Wu said the charges are completely unfounded, given that in the 24 hours she was home, their house was under constant guard by the police.

“We are very worried,” he added. “We don’t know where she is.”

Dear Vendors,

I don’t care how nice the working conditions in the factories are that produce your cheap knock-off Italian statues or how safe the factory is that makes your plush toys and board books. As long as you produce it in a country where getting pregnant can get you fired or into a hospital for a forced abortion or sent to a “reeducation camp”, we won’t carry it.

If you can’t see beyond the money to what really goes on in that country, what else will you ignore in your quest for low prices?

Well, it’s not that easy to sell only American made products. There isn’t enough manufacturers to provide all the unique gifts it takes to stay in business. Price point is another story. If we had a list of all American companies then we would try to carry there products.
