【大紀元9月2日訊】對於中共政府違背人權、侵害人權的行為，西方世界已然有了較為廣泛的瞭解；但是對於西方發達國家的跨國公司在其中所扮演的角色，卻鮮 為人知。2008年出版的奧地利自由記者Klaus Werner-Lobo撰寫的《世界是我們的：跨國公司的權力和卑鄙勾當》一書，將西方跨國公司在中國人權問題上的雙重標準，以詳實的數據和頗具說服力的 論證披露了出來。Weiterlesen (wer kann…)…
Englische Zusammenfassung des Artikels (danke Pamela Tsai!):
In Klaus Werner-Lobo’s new book “The World Belongs to Us”, western multinational companies are engaged in human rights violations in China. For example, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo are blocking words like “human rights” “freedom of speech” . According to UK Guardian report, a Chinese jouralist was sent to jail because Yahoo diclosed his personal IP info to Chinese communist government. Yahoo’s explanation is “we have to obey local laws”. Amnesty International said, these multinational companies are betraying western freedom value out of the concern to make money/profits. They cooperate with dictactorship.” Chinese government achieved full cooperation with these multinational companies. Just like Chinese communist party president Hu Jintao said to Bill Gates during their meeting in 2006 “if you are friend of China, I am a friend of Microsoft”.
In order to pursue big profits, Multinational companies abuse Chinese worker’s rights (pay, work environment). According to the study done by Play Fair, workers in one Shenzhen factory, China work 13 hours, almost without time to rest. Their monthly salary is Chinese currency 778. This factory has big cutomers from Disney, Nike, Wal-Mart, Dell. The working environment is miserable - worker’s health and saftey is not protected. The air was full of poisnous things.
China is the heaven of multinational companies. Because independent union is forbidden in China. Workers can not demand rightes - they will be arrested by police. Chinese law even don’t have regulations about worker’s safety and working environment. Because of international pressure, Chinese government wants to improve work environment and allow union to exist, multnational companies protested it. Some multinational companies even want to withdraw - they want to keep the lowest wage and lost cost of doing business in China. WTO, IFM are all assisting these multinational companies to exploit people.
The book “The world belong to us” shows many multinational companies don’t care about human rights. They only care about profit/money. They became the assistants to the Chinese government dictatorship. This book made people think about the relationship between money and human rights.
