Short Documentary Film about Christian Persecution
Imagine a man comes to your house at night and holds a gun to your head, he tells you to convert to his religion or he will kill you and your family. For some people, this is a reality they have to face, and many people’s religion is so strong that they don’t convert, becoming martyrs. RED is a short documentary film about Christian persecution around the world. One in eight Christians around the world, face prosecution, and in today’s world, this is simply not right.
Red Wednesday is a day to gather and draw attention to the plight of those who are persecuted and oppressed for their religious beliefs. Cathedrals, churches and public buildings around the world will light up in red to show solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Christ. Red Wednesday is an initiative of Aid to the Church in Need (ACN), a Catholic charity dedicated to the support of suffering and persecuted Christians.
The persecution of Christians is reaching a crisis point. In terms of the number of people involved, the gravity of the acts committed, and their impact, not only are Christians more persecuted than any other faith group, but ever-increasing numbers are experiencing the worst forms of persecution. The purpose of Red Wednesday is to join together and raise a strong voice in support of the persecuted who are unable to speak freely, and who look to us - their brothers and sisters in Christ - to speak on their behalf
