At the hearing, Fu will explain some of Xi’s oppressive actions, which he likens to those of the Cultural Revolution, including the ongoing, government-backed demolition of church crosses in China’s coastal Zhejiang province. According to Fu, 90 percent of crosses throughout the province have been demolished. Many church leaders who protested such actions have been apprehended and sentenced to jail time. Additionally, more than 350 human rights professionals and activists being detained, questioned, forcibly summoned, threatened or arrested on July 9-10, 2015.

China Aid participates in such hearings in order to advocate for religious freedom, human rights and rule of law in China.
