Christian Solidarity Worldwide will be hosting an important speaker and democracy activist, Dr. Yang Jianli, in Brussells next week to address the European Union Parliament on human rights issues in China. Despite rapid economic growth and some greater freedoms, China continues to repress religious freedom on a regular basis. Millions of Christians who attend China’s unregistered and therefore illegal house churches are at risk of arrest and government harassment. Arrests and temporary imprisonment in “black jails” or unofficial holding cells are not uncommon. Christians who actively work for greater religious freedom are more at risk and face years of potential imprisonment.
