Bitter Winter reported earlier about the destruction of a Roman Catholic Way of the Cross in Henan Province. In the evening of June 5, officials ordered excavators and other heavy machinery to destroy the monuments and removed images of Jesus at the well-known Our Lady of Mount Carmel pilgrimage site in Tianjiajing village of the Catholic Anyang Diocese. We just received photos made by witnesses of the destruction.

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).
