For over two years now, CCP implements a comprehensive nationwide campaign to remove religious symbols from places of worship, documented here with exclusive pictures.
To prevent people from worshiping close to their homes, authorities across China close state-run Protestant venues and force believers to attend other churches.
Unregistered Protestant venues are monitored by plainclothes police officers and residential communities’ managers before their churches are raided and closed.
The CCP intensifies efforts to eradicate Buddhist and Taoist temples using various pretexts to cover up its true intentions—to suppress people of faith.
Authorities intimidate property owners and hotel managers who allow unregistered religious groups to hold religious gatherings.
Some churches refusing to join the Patriotic Church are repurposed by the state, while others are barred from activities in the name of “epidemic prevention.”
The CCP continues cracking down on house churches and state-approved venues in the southeastern province of Jiangxi.
Young people across China are subjected to patriotic education. Those who refuse to undergo it are in danger of losing opportunities to study or get good jobs.
From crosses on graves to traditional Buddhist and Taoist attire and even signboards of martial art schools—all religious symbols and names ordered to be removed.
