Hong Kong demonstrators protest Chinese oppression of Church freedom
CWN - July 11, 2012
Cardinal Joseph Zen led a group of Catholics a Hong Kong demonstration protesting Chinese government interference with the freedom of the Catholic Church.
The protest, held outside the office of the Chinese central government in Hong Kong, focused on the arrest of Bishop Ma Daqin, the newly ordained auxiliary of Shanghai, who was taken into custody after renouncing his membership in the government-backed Patriotic Association.
