Red Wednesday 28 Nov, 2018


Persecution against Christians in the world's worst-affected regions has reached a new peak, the impact of which is only now beginning to be felt in all its horror.

Join people from around the world on Wednesday 28th November – #RedWednesday, and stand in solidarity with persecuted Christians and faith minorities who suffer unjustly for their peacefully-held beliefs. Let’s spread the word and use social media to make #RedWednesday 2018 a campaign that cannot be ignored.

From Scotland to the Philippines, from the U.S.A. to Iraq, #Redwednesday events took place last year to draw attention to the persecution of Christians and other faiths because of their beliefs.
