(Washington, D.C.-Feb. 4, 2019) The Hudson Institute and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) met with a ChinaAid delegation today in Washington, D.C., and heard the plight of persecuted people groups in China, including Li Mingche, a Taiwanese human rights advocate imprisoned in China on subversion charges in 2017.
The Hudson Institute, represented by long-time religious freedom proponent and lawyer Nina Shea, questioned ChinaAid on the current state of religious freedom for Christians in China, specifically within the context of new facial recognition cameras, which are being installed in Chinese churches. Shea stated that the intent of the Chinese government is clearly to eradicate Christianity and asked ChinaAid’s president, Bob Fu, if he expected them to succeed. Fu answered that historically, the Chinese church has not been defeated by religious suppression, so he does not think they will be this time, either.
During the meeting, Shea repeatedly expressed concern that China is “looming” as a large modern threat to religious freedom.
ChinaAid thanks these two organizations for their interest in and support the fight for religious freedom and human rights in China and encourages others in the free world to stand up against the abuses occurring in China.
ChinaAid exposes abuses in order to stand in solidarity with the persecuted and promote religious freedom, human rights, and rule of law. If you wish to partner with us in helping those persecuted by the Chinese government for their beliefs, please click here to make a charitable donation.
