Human rights and religious freedom in China have deteriorated to the lowest point since the period after the crackdown on the 1989 Tiananmen Square student-led pro-democracy demonstration, ChinaAid reports. Bob Fu, president of ChinaAid, has been invited by the European Parliament to testify on the serious decline of religious freedom, the rule of law and human rights in general. "The grave human rights violations by the Chinese government is a global issue," Fu said. "We urge [international] leaders to take more concrete steps to encourage the Chinese government to improve its record by building an international coalition founded on an unwavering solidarity with the Chinese rights defenders community."
