“习政权下不断恶化的宗教迫害”新闻发布会将于23日在美国国会举行

对华援助协会                    2015年9月16日




中国国家主席习近平访美之际,2015年9月23日下午,对华援助协会将联合其他在中国受迫害宗教团体,在美国国会山瑞本国会大厦举办“习政权下不断恶化的宗教迫害”新闻发布会。在美国国会国际宗教自由委员会官员主持下,世界维吾尔大会主席热比娅、对华援助协会副总裁Kody Kness、加拿大世界小姐林耶凡、华人牧师郭宝胜等将发言。

自习近平上台以来,中国的宗教自由和人权纪录显著下降,甚至许多政府批准的宗教场所和标志也被强拆,如在浙江省已经强拆了1500多个教堂堂顶的十字架。除基督教外,对其他宗教的迫害也有增无减,众多宗教领袖、宗教从业者、信徒和宗教信仰自由的倡导者被拘留、逮捕、监禁、酷刑,被迫害致死也不计其数。

在习近平来美之际,深受中共政权迫害的宗教团体理当团结一致,共同呼吁习近平停止迫害诸宗教信徒、停止压制宗教自由、无条件释放宗教自由犯及政治犯。我们也呼吁奥巴马能将宗教自由作为主要议题,在奥习会上要求习近平尊重宗教信仰自由这一普世价值、联合国宣言中的原则。

“Worsening Religious Freedom Abuse in China under the Xi Administration”

Wednesday, September 23, 2015 at 2:30 p.m.

Rayburn House Office Building, Room 2456

In preparation for the visit of President Xi Jinping to Washington, China Aid will host a press conference for representatives of religious communities in China to speak about persecution against their respective communities and call for greater religious freedom in China.

China’s religious freedom and human rights record has significantly declined since President Xi took power, with state-sanctioned campaigns to demolish places of worship, and a multitude of religious leaders, practitioners, and religious freedom advocates being detained, arrested, imprisoned, tortured, and in many cases perishing at the hands of the government.

Undeniably, religious communities in China stand united in calling for Xi to unconditionally release prisoners of conscience and respect freedom of religion as enshrined in Article 18 of the UN Declaration of Human Rights.

Moderator: Tina Mufford: U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF)

Speakers Include-

Rebiya Kadeer, President, World Uyghur Congress

Kody Kness, Vice President, China Aid

Tencho Gyatso, Associate Director for Chinese Engagement & Tibetan Empowerment Programs

International Campaign for Tibet (ICT)

Anastasia Lin, Human rights advocates and Miss World Canada 2015

Pastor Guo Baosheng, Former Prisoner of Conscience and Member of the Association of Overseas Chinese House Church Pastors

Pastor Jonathan Liu, Former Chinese Government-Sanctioned Church Leader
