ICC Note:

Two Christians were thrown from a wall in China while church members were resisting authorities who were forcibly trying to install CCTV cameras inside churches in Zheijang province. The man and the women suffered spinal fractures as well as other injuries. About 100 government officials clashed with a congregation attempting to stop them from installing the cameras. The clash grew violent, and the man was thrown from a wall, received multiple injuries to the neck, spine, as well as other bones, and fell into a coma. The woman, similarly, fell into a “comatose state” after being thrown off of the wall. Both of the injured were originally denied treatment or neglected at the hospitals they were taken to. This particular city, Wenzhou, has implemented one of China’s most oppressive crackdowns on Christianity.

4/28/2017 China (China Aid) – A Christian man and woman suffered spinal fractures and various other injuries after they were thrown from a several-foot high wall for defending their church in China’s coastal Zhejiang province on Friday.

As part of an official campaign to install surveillance equipment in local churches, which would allow authorities to more closely monitor religious activities, about 100 officials from various government departments in Wenzhou, Zhejiang, arrived at Banling Church at 8 a.m. on April 21 to forcibly set up cameras. They were met by an equally large force of Christians, who attempted to protect the church, and, according to a local church member, the conflict quickly progressed into a physical fight.
