Open Doors warns of 'rise of the surveillance state' as North Korea tops watch list again

From the article:

This year, the Christian watchdog organization is highlighting the “rise of the surveillance state” and its impact on Christians and Muslims in China along with its 2019 World Watch List, released Wednesday (Jan. 15).
That’s because it could have “wide implications for the future,” Curry said.
“What they're doing is creating a roadmap of persecution. This is a blueprint that they will sell and use in other countries,” he said.
The organization's report notes that an estimated 1 million Uighur Muslims have been detained in China.

The persecution of Uighurs and other theists in China has been covered by the media. If we truly believe in freedom, this intolerance should concern us no matter where it happens.

1. Atheists are also persecuted in China and North Korea, because it's not about religion.

It's about the state and whether or not they deem you a threat.
