“Peace, Not Persecution”— A Torchlight Procession for Peace in Italy
In recent years, the number of refugees displaced by war and religious persecution has reached its highest level since World War II, and among them are Christians of(CAG) fleeing persecution in China. The outlook for their asylum applications in foreign countries is bleak, and some are even in danger of being repatriated anytime. This state of affairs has attracted concern from many international human rights organizations and has even been called “an international humanitarian crisis” by western academics. On January 18, 2019, a Torchlight Procession for Peace took place in Rho, Milan in Italy. This procession was jointly organized by the Council of Migrants of the Municipality of Rho, the Mayors of the Pact of North West, and the Association of Voluntary Italian Blood Donors (AVIS). CAG Christians attended the procession together with volunteers from other associations, calling for world peace for the sake of refugees and immigrants as a result of war, their religious beliefs or other reasons.
