China Aid Association Picks 2010’s Top 10 Cases of Persecution of Churches and Christians in China
Taishan Christian Church in Qinggang town, Yuhuai county, Taizhou city, Jiangsu province endured two forced demolitions in a single month. On Aug. 30, 2010, the local government sent nearly 300 police officers and migrant workers to raze the church’s Mount of Prayer activities hall. Altogether six rooms were demolished as more than 20 believers negotiated fruitlessly with the town government. On Sept. 21, the local government mobilized again, sending 200 police and demolition workers to tear down the structure the church members had put up following the previous demolition, this time totally leveling the structure. In the face of this destruction, the Christian believers who were at the site kept reciting Bible passages and singing hymns until the police forcibly drove them away. The church’s pastor Zhu Zugen said, “…the local Yuhuai county government came again and completely leveled our Mount of Prayer building. Today, the ones who showed up were probably our Qinggang town mayor and vice mayor as well as the chief of the local police station. Last time, it was to tear down our outer wall, today it was to completely level us to the ground
