NGOs’ Appeal at Xi Jinping’s Visit to EU: Economics Shouldn’t Override Human Rights

Since Xi Jinping came to power, the human rights situation in China has significantly deteriorated; the persecution of religious practitioners, ethnic minorities, and dissidents is now comparable to that in the Cultural Revolution. The United States’ Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2018 stated that China is the country with the most serious human rights violations, and it also mentioned the systematic persecution suffered by Uyghurs, Falun Gong practitioners, and members of The Church of Almighty God (CAG) in China. Many Christians have been forced to flee the country because of the CCP’s brutal suppression and persecution of religious beliefs. However, the CCP employs political and diplomatic tactics as well as economic pressure in an effort to force democratic countries to return all Chinese Christian refugees to China where the persecution will continue. The CCP’s criminal acts of violating and trampling on human rights have drawn attention and condemnation from the international community. During Xi Jinping’s recent visit to Europe, some human rights organizations and persecuted groups organized protests calling on the governments of Western countries to focus on the human rights situation in China while conducting business dealings with the country.

“Peace, Not Persecution”— A Torchlight Procession for Peace in Italy

In recent years, the number of refugees displaced by war and religious persecution has reached its highest level since World War II, and among them are Christians of The Church of Almighty God (CAG) fleeing persecution in China.

Human Rights Day: Chinese Christians Abroad Express Support for Persecuted Mainland Groups

Seventy years ago as the gunpowder smoke from the Second World War was just dissipating, from the tragic cost exacted by the war people began to reflect and realize the importance of upholding basic rights for humanity. On December 10, 1948, the United Nations passed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, establishing that everyone is equal in dignity and human rights. In spite of the fact that China signed this U.N. declaration, in practice, the Chinese Communist Party has never implemented a single article, all the while proclaiming China’s human rights and freedom of religion as well as doing its utmost to cover up the truth of its persecution of religious beliefs and violations of human rights in order to deceive the people of the world. On December 10, 2018 at the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights across Italy, Christians from The Church of Almighty God, which has been most seriously persecuted by the CCP, expressed their support for all persecuted groups in mainland China.
