China Aid said: "Zhou Jinxia was administratively detained for 10 days in 2015 for preaching the gospel in front of Zhongnanhai Gate. 

"On March 5 , 2016 , she held a placard again in front of Zhongnanhai Gate, which read: " God loves the world and calls Xi Jinping and Peng Liyuan. ' Freedom, equality, justice, and integrity come from God, and ' atheism ' produces evil, It brings disaster to the country and brings disaster to the people.
