United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights-Article 18

The United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) sets out fundamental human rights to be universally protected.

Article 18:
Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) controlled People’s Republic of China engages in systemic violations of Article 18 of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

The CCP is engaged in the destruction of places of religious worship hearkening back to the excesses of the Cultural Revolution.

Christianity is under attack with the destruction of churches and the jailing of Christians as reported by the Guardian newspaper and the New York Times.

Islam is under attack with the destruction of mosques that are not used for tourist purposes as reported by National Public Radio and Time.

Buddhism is still under attack with the destruction of monasteries as reported by the BBC and the Diplomat.
