China Aid Releases 2016 Annual Persecution Report.

China Aid released its 2016 Annual Persecution Report on 1 March 2017, as part of its mission to uncover and reveal the truth about religious persecution in China. Though predominately focusing on the persecution of Protestant house churches, ChinaAid promotes religious freedom for all Chinese citizens regardless of their ethnic or religious identity. The reports comprehensively documents and analyzes the situation of the Chinese church from inside China received over the previous year. Each case had been investigated in collaboration with local house churches, corroborated through direct interviews with victims and family members, and verified by secondary sources. It is important to note that these cases only represent a small proportion of the total number of cases of religious persecution occurring throughout China. While the annual report is not a comprehensive reporting of every instance of human rights and religious freedom abuses in China, the data covered a majority of Chinese provinces and municipalities and included reporting on numerous modes of persecution.
