Panjin Red Beach, China

The Red Beach is located in the Liaohe River Delta, about 30 kilometer southwest of Panjin City in China. The beach gets its name from its appearance, which is caused by a type of sea weed that flourishes in the saline-alkali soil. The weed that start growing during April or May remains green during the summer. In autumn, this weed turns flaming red, and the beach looks as if it was covered by an infinite red carpet that creates a rare red sea landscape. Most of the Red Beach is a nature reserve and closed to the public. Only a small, remote, section is open for tourists.

Finally reached the next city, Panjin if I’m not mistaken. We were otw to the oil field where we were to meet the supervisor there which is YT’s childhood friend. We stopped by the mall to buy lip balm because our lips were extremely dry at that point.

China jails 5 cult members in northeast province - Xinhua

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - A court in China’s northeast Liaoning province has sentenced five members of a banned religious cult to prison for trying to spread rumours and recruit believers, state media reported on Saturday.
China’s Communist Party, obsessed with social stability, brooks no challenge to its rule. It has cracked down on cults, which have multiplied in recent years. Demonstrations have been put down with force and some sect leaders executed.
The official Xinhua news agency reported that the five accused, who live in the city of Panjin, were members of the group Quannengshen, or the Church of Almighty God. It said they were caught with proselytizing materials in their possession.
Quannengshen gained notoriety in 2014 when a video distributed online appeared to show group members beating a woman to death at a McDonald’s food chain. That incident led to two members being sentenced to death for murder.

China sentences 5 on charges of spreading cult teachings

BEIJING (AP) — A court in northeast China sentenced five people to prison Saturday for spreading the teachings of a banned religious group that’s been linked to a killing of a woman in a McDonald’s restaurant last year.

The Intermediate Court in the city of Panjin said the five were sentenced to two to three years for undermining the implementation of the law, recruiting believers and propagating the group, called Quannengshen.

Members of the sect, whose name translates roughly as “all-powerful spirit,” were sentenced for killing a woman in May 2014 after she refused to give her phone number to the suspects, who were trying to recruit new members.

The group believes Jesus has been resurrected as a Chinese woman, and it has been officially banned along with 13 other sects of various types.

Following last year’s incident, authorities announced the roundup of hundreds of alleged cult members. The killing was caught on security camera footage and shown repeatedly on state television, along with the trial proceedings, in which two members were sentenced to death.

China has struggled at times to control grass-roots religious movements based on Christian or Buddhist ideology, most notably the Falungong meditation movement, which attracted millions of adherents before being brutally repressed in 1999.
