Back from Dongguan. There is something not convenient to talk in Mainland China. Now I want to grumble about it.
I really don't know what Apple is messing up. On April 20, I went to the factory of Masstop in Sangyuen Industrial District (Dongguan) and interviewed workers outside the factory. It was already three days after the strike. The owner usually takes repressive measure to control the workers. Masstop is no exception. The workers were most probably afraid of being retaliation and did not talk much. But if you really want to ask something, you would get it. If Apple had sent a delegate to hang around outside the factory for a whole day, he/she could have know what bad things the Masstop is doing.

During a recent trip to San Francisco, I was asked to comment on China's threat to global environment by a local student regarding the fact that China is now the top country in greenhouse gap emission.
A black T-shirt caused the massive arrest of 116 opposition members by the Malaysian government. It almost breaks the record set by the notorious Operasi Lalang more than 20 years ago in which 119 social activists, oppositions and religious people were arrested for violating the Internal Security Act.
In Malaysia, lawyers and journalists have been arrested while in the course of doing their duties. This has caused concerns to citizens because of the rampant arrests. As a concerned citizen, Citizen Journalist, Chan Lilian attended a candlelight vigil on a balmy, moonlite night. However, things turned ugly when the police hauled up the emcee of the vigil and threatened to arrest everyone else. A sad end to a peaceful gathering asking for democracy, truth, justice and freedom.
