I chose to write about:

Mike Daisey and Steve Jobs, ShenZhen Factory Workers for Apple; other labor abuses in China
(Ai WeiWei speaks outÖ)

discuss about the documentary that Mike Daisey reveals about the factory workers for Apple in ShenZhen, how labor condition in China. And also relate that to some Ai WeiWeiís work, which also reveals the labor issue in China, about human rights, also freedom of speech (talk about how Mike Daiseyís and Ai WeiWeiís works that are prohibited by the government?)
