(China—December 26, 2020) Before Christmas 2020, numerous groups of “Pro-Mao” citizens demonstrated in streets throughout China proclaiming anti-Christmas messages, similar to the one in the above picture stating: “Christmas—get out of China.” With the Chinese Communist Party’s current crackdown on human rights, if officials had not approved or “backed” these types of demonstrations, authorities would have immediately suppressed them to “maintain stability,” and detained or severely sentenced the organizers.

At some universities this Christmas season, CCP authorities not only prohibited students from celebrating Christmas, they also banned them from attending off-campus events. Some officials even warned students that they would punish them for buying and eating apples.

One university issued the following two official notifications:

  1. Students must remain on campus from December 24 to December 25. The head of each dorm should collect information regarding each person twice a day, at 7 pm and 9 pm.
  2. In line with our country’s [China's] protocol, students and faculty members should resist foreign holidays. On December 24 and 25, no one is allowed to buy or eat apples. Any person caught doing so will be penalized.

While expounding on the university's anti-Christmas notification and reminding students that authorities continually keep them on the radar, a counselor added the conspicuous request: Please change your WeChat profile picture if it shows someone wearing a Christmas hat [or displays any other Christmas symbol].
