Open Invitation to the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses to Denounce the Actions of the Chinese Government and Prosecutors

We, Anonymous, demand that the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses give the same degree of attention to the plight of the 18 Jehovah’s Witnesses, indicted in China in relation to “using an evil religion organization,” as you did to the plight of Dennis Christensen, the Watch Tower Society representative in Russia.

On April 15, 2019, a total of 18 Jehovah’s Witnesses in China were arrested and charged with indictable offences relating to, “using an evil religion organization” to “incite the obstruction of law enforcement,” and one charge relating to, “obstructing law enforcement by organizing and using an evil religious organization.” Since the arrests, the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses have remained silent on the plight of these 18 Jehovah’s Witnesses in China.

Since April 15, 2019, the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses have published 11 individual articles on the JW.ORG website critical of the Russian government and prosecutors, and supportive of Dennis Christensen and other Jehovah’s Witnesses in Russia being prosecuted.

All except for Jiang Xijun were charged with using an “evil religious organization” to incite the obstruction of law enforcement, and Jiang received a law enforcement charge for allegedly “obstructing law enforcement by organizing and using an evil religious organization.”

The indictments evidence that the defendants violated religious management regulations by establishing a congregation in Korla, Xinjiang, and converting 63 people, among other accusations of “spreading superstition and heresy” and preventing people from joining Communist Party organizations.

All charges are brought under Article 300 of the Chinese Criminal Code:

High Court Ruling Stops Children Attending Jehovah’s Witnesses Kingdom Hall

A New Zealand High Court Ruling has prohibited two children from attending the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses and engaging in the activities of Jehovah’s Witnesses for the purpose of protecting the children from exposure to the religion. The ruling permits the two children to attend birthday, Easter and Christmas celebrations. The ruling prevents the mother from taking the two children out “witnessing”.

Jehovah’s Witnesses Falsely Linked To Islamic State

The following news interview was reported in the English language version of Pravda.Ru on 8 October 2014…

The UN Security Council unanimously, which is a rare occasion during the recent years, adopted a resolution on the fight against terrorism. Pravda.Ru interviewed executive secretary of the Presidium of the Academy of Geopolitical Problems, Araik Stepanyan, about old and new threats in the Middle East and in the whole world.

“Why did Russia support the United States? Not that long ago, there was heated debate on the USA’s interference in the internal affairs of Syria and Ukraine. In fact, the United States wants to destroy Russia by the hands of Ukrainian fascists. Yet, Russia supported the States. Why so?”

“Russia has its list of terrorist organizations. Some of them, included on our list, are not included on the list of the United States. They consider them fighters for freedom and democracy and support some of them. Russia calls for the coordination of databases of terrorist organizations, so that they are clearly considered as terrorist organizations for the whole world. In this case, it would be possible to catch members of such organizations and bring them to trial, rather than simply bomb sovereign states. Russia voted for coordinated legal international action.”

“Is the current bombing of ISIS in Syria a start of the operation that will then proceed to the destruction of Bashar Assad?”

“ISIS has everything. It has members from Jehovah’s Witnesses, from archaic Judaism, from the criminal world … That is, they built a fine, universal and simple ideology. The main idea of ​​it is the false understanding of the end of the world. To be saved, one needs to unite and go to the end of the world together. In another world, they will have beautiful women, etc.”
