How come the American "press" doesn't mention any of this? I found out thru a brief comment in Drudge and then went in searching for the subject. If it wasn't for the internet I will live in a dark cave with my head covered by a brown paperbag! I guess our newspapers are to busy telling about the Kardashians Christmas party...

Just found out about a Chinese prison work camp outside Firenze . The Italian government has allowed the Chinese to set this up. Chinese slaves. Locked in. Chained to work stations, so they can put a. Made in Italy label on things
I can not believe in just a few years, how much made in China has been allowed
It has ruined The USA, glad to hear about the protest here. The USA is too apathetic, and too many on Welfare to give a darn

Stop allowing the Children of Europe to be Brainwashed by the E.U, Marxists and Bankers. We are going to end up in a USSR style hel hole.
The people of Europe need to regain control of their National states before it is too late.

It's all the years of freeloading on the system that's causing this everywhere in reap what you sow...nothing is really free.Personal responsibility is the key(meaning every bodied person has to work,not sit at home and collect a free check) and fairness in wages and putting caps on CEO pay in percentage ratios where those ratios stay in track with every worker in that company and caps on bonuses.

Bu t if 50% want free things,they will always catch up with you like we see in Europe and coming soon to the USA.Prepare for the worst economic collapse soon.

the EU is just the same thing as the USSR, failed central planning propped up by big banks sucking the people dry with cripplng debt. the USSR could not pay its debts and collapsed, so will the EU and USA. the socialist/marxist utopia is a complete myth that always fails. Bankers just use it as persuasive idea to enslave the masses to live and easy life only to face massive debts when the bill is due. WAKE UP SHEEPLE
