China: demolition of church begins amid protests

Catholic World News - April 29, 2014

Communist officials in the eastern province of Zhejiang have begun to demolish a church that has been the focal point of protests by area Christians, according to The New York Times.

Thousands of protestors had attempted to protect the Sanjiang Christian Church, a Protestant church that was built in December, from potential demolition. Although the church is registered and not part of the underground church movement, local officials subsequently deemed it too large.
