Chinese Christians Defend Religious Freedom with Non-Violence, Law – Christian Post

From Christian Post (link):

Following in the footsteps of American clergyman, Nobel Prize winner, and paragon of nonviolent protest, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., three Chinese Christian activists hope to use non-violent approaches and China’s own constitution to defend in the communist state.

During the meeting with U.S. President Bush at the White House on Thursday – Yu Jie, Li Baiguang and Wang Yi ‚Äì shared testimonies of the Chinese government’s control on religion and persecution of “house” churches – unofficial churches not registered with the government. The religious freedom advocates expressed their determination to fight for the right of freedom of worship and expression through nonviolent methods such as informing people of the real situation in China through writings and the internet as well as providing legal aid to those persecuted for their faith.
