(London—March 23, 2016) China Aid president Bob Fu is scheduled to participate in a panel at The Henry Jackson Society in London on Thursday.
The panel, titled “27 Years After Tiananmen Square: A Human Rights Assessment,” will examine how China’s human rights conditions have changed since the Tiananmen Square Massacre on June 4, 1989.
At the panel, Fu will discuss various human rights abuses detailed in China Aid’s forthcoming 2015 Annual Report, including the police harassment of more than 350 human rights lawyers on July 9-10, 2015, and the increasingly common practice of detaining Christians who oppose cross demolitions occurring across China’s coastal Zhejiang province. According to the annual report, approximately 90 percent of church crosses in the province have been demolished.
China Aid participates in such panels in order to advocate for religious freedom, human rights and rule of law in China.
