A magazine on religious liberty and human rights in China
Bitter Winter plans to report on how religions are allowed, or not allowed, to operate in China and how some are severely persecuted after they are labeled as “xie jiao,” or heterodox teachings. We plan to publish news difficult to find elsewhere, analyses, and debates.
Placed under the editorship of Massimo Introvigne, one of the most well-known scholars of religion internationally, “Bitter Winter” is a cooperative enterprise by scholars, human rights activists, and members of religious organizations persecuted in China (some of them have elected, for obvious reasons, to remain anonymous). It is independent from any religious or political organization, serving an international audience, although gladly welcoming the cooperation of many, and the fruit of volunteer work by those who work on it , although donations are gladly accepted.
