Aerial images of the re-education camp from which the above pictures were taken #Xinjiang
The camp is protected by fences and barbed wire, preventing any escapes. Watch towers looming over the scene #Xinjiang
More pictures from the labor cohorts, doing manual field work that could easily be finished with mechanical machines instead. #ForcedLabor #Xinjiang
These pictures recollect memories of slavery in the Southern states of the US 🇺🇸...
... maybe because these are actual images of ongoing #slavery in the US 🇺🇸 south, from the Angola farm that is now the Lousiana State Penitentiary.

Also, please consider boycotting all those movies shot in Louisiana

New cases of #coronavirus in #Beijing are linked to a seafood market. Traces of the virus were found on a #salmon chopping board. It's very unlikely that this is a possible infection vector. Still, let's think through the possibilities.
The largest importers of salmon to China are Chile with 39% and Norway with 36% (Q1 2020). China has domestic salmon (TIL), but it's not competitive. seafoodsource.com/news/supply-tr…
Chile's salmon comes from large aquafarms, 60% of which are controlled by Norwegian capital.
However, Chilean salmon is much cheaper, which is mainly due to the lower labor costs. Workers work 12 hour shifts, 48 hours per week, at temperatures close to 0 °C. Image

This is the full news report, didn't realize I could expand the length over the default setting of Twitter. Hope it works this time.
