Westminster Cathedral to be lit in red to raise awareness of persecution
August 11, 2016
In November, Westminster Cathedral will be lit in red with floodlights to commemorate the persecution of Christians.
“If every parish in the country did the same it might at last wake up our political classes to the scale of the suffering,” said Lord David Alton.
Where are the protests? Why are we so reluctant to speak out? Where are the widespread demonstrations, the Parish Vigils, the motions to Student Unions, to Local Councils? Where are letters by their thousands to the Prime Minister, MPs, political leaders – urging them to do more? Where are the spontaneous grassroots campaigns that helped end apartheid and any number of injustices?
