Thursday, 27 June 1996

Document One: A report of the village Communist Committee to their boss, a higher Communist Committee

Document number : 1996 - #040

Date: June 28, 1996

It says: Illegal Roman Catholics in this village set to and built a church building in 1991 and April 15-18, 1996, without government's permission. The act was intolerable and the building was to be pulled down.

On April 18, 1996 we went over and pulled down part of their building. We also sealed the church entrances with bricks and mortar. Besides, we destroyed their altar and church articles.

The villagers were stubborn and disruptive. After a couple of months, on June 19, 1996, they took off the bricks with which we sealed the church entrances, and carried on their construction work. The local communist commandants and policemen, more than forty of us, rushed over to the spot that day and devastated the building again. We arrested a leader Christian. The village Communist Committee came to a decision on June 27, 1996 that "the illegal church building should be pulled down by local police and local 'Religious Bureau.'"
