Program Title: Inside China’s secretive Lop County Hair Product Industrial Park
Description: The Chinese government says the Lop County Hair Product Industrial Park in Northwestern China is a place where people can work, making wigs and other hair products that get shipped across the globe.
Others say what’s happening at the park is forced labour, and that it’s just the latest in a pattern of grave human rights abuses committed in recent years against the country’s Uighur Muslim population, including the use of mass re-education camps, mass surveillance and even forced sterilisation.
The Lop County Hair Product Industrial Park is an incredibly secretive place, highly guarded. Yet Globe and Mail journalist Nathan VanderKlippe managed to travel there. He’s just returned and today on Front Burner he’ll tell us what he saw.
