Sign the Petition

Please join human rights advocates from all over the world to stand in solidarity with members and leaders of the Shouwang Church in Beijing and call on the Chinese government to end the religious persecution of this church and its members and to uphold the right to freedom of religion guaranteed by the Chinese constitution and international law.

Members of the Shouwang Church have been deprived of a location to worship, whether within a building or outdoors. Many of the church members have been detained, interrogated and even physically abused and church leaders have been placed under extra-judicial house arrest for weeks. Chinese government authorities have even prevented the congregation from holding a service on Easter Sunday, one of the most important holidays on the Christian calendar.
