(Christian Today) – A protest calling for religious freedom in Eritrea will take place on 9th June 2005 outside the Eritrean Embassy in London . The initiative is supported by Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), Release Eritrea ! and Christian Concern for Freedom of Conscience (CCFC) and aims to highlight the Eritrean government’s decisions regarding religious freedom. According to the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom report, in May 2002, the Eritrea government ordered mandatory registration of religious groups and commenced closing places of worship for organizations waiting for registration. “The persecution of Christians in Eritrea has worsened considerably as a result of the government’s decision to ban all but three Christian denominations,” said Chief Executive of CWS, Mervyn Thomas.
