Since early this year, the Chinese Communist government has strengthened surveillance and control of Christianity in mainland China. Recently, Bitter Winter learned that surveillance cameras have been installed in Christian churches in Zhejiang. In Beijing as well, surveillance cameras have been forcibly installed in the meeting places for house churches.
In the middle of April, surveillance cameras were forcibly installed in Beijing Xi’an Church. After the community had manifested its dissatisfaction with the government’s decision, the church was faced with being cut off water supply and the elevators were put out of service.
