  • Falun Dafa Practitioners Forced to Perform Slave Labour at Chishan Prison in Hunan Province

    There are over a dozen procedures necessary for making one doll, but carrying out many of these steps are countless numbers of people who don't get paid, and when payment does occur, it is only the equivalent of about twenty-five cents.
