Last summer, Christians around the world embraced--and displayed--the Arabic letter nun (N) as a sign of solidarity with Iraqi Christians persecuted by ISIS. The movement became known as #WEAreN. Nun was the letter the Islamic State jihadist painted on Christian homes and businesses to identify them as "Nazerites," or Christian infidels.

Now, a growing number of Christians around the globe are displaying red crosses in solidarity with the Chinese church.

Take a look at what some young Americans did at the recent Rock the Desert music festival in Midland-Odessa, Texas:

Their red crosses are a show of unity against China's forced removal of church crosses. According to China Aid, crosses displayed at more than 1500 churches--most of them in China's Zhejiang province have been forcibly removed in recent months by government officials.

Because Catholic and Protestant registered churches --not just unregistered, underground churches are being targeted, a growing number of Chinese Christians are resisting this latest wave of persecution.

Take a look at this video taken just several days ago in Wenzhou:

Yes, from Zhejiang to West Texas, China's Red Cross movement is now the new "N".
