(Bitter Winter) — Religious groups in China are forced to submit to the CCP and organize activities following the Party’s policies; otherwise, they will be identified as unlawful and targeted for eradication.
On Oct. 16, more than 20 government officials from the Cangshan district in Fuzhou, the capital of the southeastern province of Fujian, force-entered the Kangshanli meeting venue, removing the lock with an electric saw. They then proceeded to take down all Christian symbols inside, including the cross and religious couplets.
To stop believers from meeting again, government officials changed the lock of the entrance door. They posted a notice issued by the Ethnic and Religious Affairs Bureau, banning the meeting venue because it was “illegal.”
According to members of the congregation, their place of worship has been subjected to the regime’s frequent harassment since its establishment 15 years ago for refusing to join the Three-Self Church.
