Religious freedom rally

Kelda Grovers and Mia Bellingan show their support.

People came out in their numbers to support the rally for protection of religious freedom at Church Square on Thursday February 1. The rally was organised as a plea to ban coercive conversion by pastors and forced conversion programmes following the murder of a Korean woman, who was suffocated by her parents. Ji In Gu was trying to escape from a coercive conversion programme her parents forced her to join, involving abduction, confinement and assault. Following her death last month, thousands of Korean citizens gathered at a memorial and protest to rally against protection of religious freedom.
