Categories: East Asia, China, Digital Activism, Governance, Human Rights, Humanitarian Response, Youth

Following up on the horrific brick kiln slave scandal from earlier this summer [1], one journalist blogger has launched an online campaign to find the names and whereabouts of the more than three hundred freed kiln slaves the government failed to release, and to correct the faulty details on the small list that was made public. Joel Martinsen at Chinese media news blog Danwei has translated the background to the campaign [2], noting that it is being strongly supported by many independent bloggers and progressive journalists [3] [zh].
