Forced Labour

Laogai in Tibet conference, what it is about?

When political prisoners languish in jails for many years, how they survive ? what they are forced to do ? what are the consequence of enforced labor on prisoners? How inhuman is the practice of "Labour Through Reeducation" Ch: Laogai , Is China's treatment of Tibetan  prisoners meet the international norms and  standards that guarantee the rights of the  political prisoners? These are the questions that the Laogai conference attempt to answer by inviting the former prisoners of survivors from Tibet to share their testimonials.
