“Even without considering our past, should Barbados be taking gifts from a Chinese Communist government that relies upon slavery as a vital part of the economy?”
China’s Christians Enslaved, Tortured and Murdered For Their Faith
On February 22, 2006, Communist Chinese secret police detained filmmaker and blogger Hao Wu. He has not been charged with any crime, and he has been refused legal representation.
It seems that he attended a Christian church that was not “approved” by the Communist Chinese government. (Story links at bottom)
Mr. Wu is just the latest Christian victim of the Chinese Communists. Millions have been murdered or enslaved since Mao and his fellow butchers took over in the late 1940’s. Mass arrests of Christians continue to this day.
“They hung me up across an iron gate, then they yanked open the gate and my whole body lifted until my chest nearly split in two. I hung like that for four hours.”

Many Chinese Christians in Slave Labour Camps Today
Slave Labour “Vital part of the Chinese economy”
China has a vast ‘laogai’ network of some 1100 ‘reform through labour’ prison camps. They were set up in the 1950s by Chairman Mao with Russian assistance, following the Russian gulag model. Mao had been executing intellectuals and dissidents by the hundreds of thousands until he realised condemning them to slave labour would be just as effective and certainly more productive. That continues to this day and forms a vital part of the Chinese economy.
Chinese Pastor Made A Slave For Handing Out Bibles
China Aid Association has learned that jailed Beijing Pastor Cai Zhuohua, a Protestant pastor who was given a three-year sentence for distributing Bibles (see RLP 353), has been forced to work more than 10 hours a day producing commercial ‘Made in China’ handbags since his transfer to Tianhe Prison in January 2006.

Barbados Government Ignores Torture For Jesus – Gladly Accepts Chinese Slave Labour Money
As mentioned in our previous articles Barbados Media Forgets Anniversary – China’s Tiananmen Square Massacre and Why is China Giving Money To Barbados? – the Government of Barbados has been receiving various gifts from Communist China for many years.
Even our Royal Barbados Police Force and military have received training and equipment from Communist China.
Every Barbadian should ask their own heart…
“Should we be taking gifts from a Chinese Communist government that relies upon slavery as a vital part of the economy?”
Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering. – (Hebrews 13:3)
