Editor’s note: The Epoch Times publishes here direct translations of statements made by Chinese people who have renounced the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliate youth organizations. Statements such as these are submitted to the Chinese language Epoch Times, Dajiyuan. The movement to renounce, withdraw from, or quit the CCP, called “Tuidang” in Chinese, began in late 2004, soon after The Epoch Times published the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party,” an editorial series that explores the nature and history of the CCP. These statements offer a rare and candid glimpse of history in the making. Chinese people are turning their backs on the Communist Party, choosing conscience over convenience, and peacefully ushering in a future China, free of Party rule.
The following is a selection of “Tuidang” (quitting the Party) statements made by Chinese nationals on Feb. 18-21, 2013.
I Withdraw From the Evil CCP and Its Organizations
I was a veteran member of the CCP. Seeing the Party’s infighting, corruption, and brutal persecution of innocent people, I know it’s inevitable that heaven will eliminate it. Withdrawing from it and making the right choice between good and evil is being responsible for oneself. Therefore I announce my withdrawal from the evil CCP and all its organizations to create a bright future for myself.
We Were so Naïve to Believe in Their Lies
The CCP is such a devil. When we were little, everyone had to join the Party’s Young Pioneers. I also believed that the “CCP represented justice.” However, recently my uncle told me that the Party actually represents evil. Mao Zedong was the ringleader of this evil gang. We were so naïve to believe in their lies, thinking Mao and the CCP were good.
My uncle explained to me that when you join the Young Pioneers, then the CCP has something on you, and you become its hostage; even God couldn’t save you. My uncle also told me about the Party’s many evil deeds, and that Mao killed more than 80 million Chinese people. I think we were too naïve. I told my schoolmates about it, but they couldn’t understand and said I was wrong, the CCP was right.
Now we are all contaminated by the evil Party. It deceives people with false information and propaganda. It will get what it deserves. When everybody knows the truth, it will be the end for the CCP. It’s a pity that even kids are now misled by the Party. Fortunately I have such an uncle who told me all this, otherwise I’d be the same as my schoolmates who foolishly believe in the devil.
Shouldn’t all Chinese people be united? Why are there still so many who don’t understand? Even my mom and my dad don’t know much about the evil CCP.
I hope people who see this post can discuss it with their families and tell them about this. It would even be better that they not only understand but also withdraw from CCP with us. I hope all the people who are still deceived by the CCP can wake up, and the evil Party will be disintegrated soon.
Announcement of Withdrawal From the CCP
I joined the CCP after I got into college, hoping for a better future. However, the government illegally took my family’s land away, and the judicial system couldn’t help. We cannot get justice and are disillusioned by the CCP. Seeing the corrupt regional and higher governments doing nothing, I totally lost faith in the Party.

We Have Become Numb Living Under the Communist Regime
My son told me and my spouse about the three withdrawals from the CCP when he came home for Chinese New Year. We are both elderly and have become numb living under the communist regime for decades. But we agreed to withdraw from the CCP’s Youth League and Young Pioneers after my son told us about the withdrawal channel through The Epoch Times. Here we announce that we quit the CCP’s organizations.

I Hope the World Won’t Ignore Chinese People’s Suffering
I hope China can become a country with democracy, freedom, a constitutional government, justice, people of faith, morality, and human rights, like the United States and other democratic countries! It would be so significant for human civilization if China can become a civilized nation. If China stays in the dark ages, it will bring a catastrophe to the world, including all countries. I hope the world won’t ignore Chinese people’s suffering just for short-term benefits. I hope all human beings can become one family. Chinese people’s suffering is also the suffering of mankind!
We Were Brainwashed Since We Were Kids
Since we went to elementary school, we heard about the Young Pioneers and the Youth League. We were brainwashed since we were kids with the propaganda of “love the Party and love the country.” I don’t have any love for the CCP, as it does more evil than good; I love my country, because we are all Chinese, we should help each other. But I’m longing for friendship among people in the world without boundaries, helping each other out between families and countries.
I Withdraw From All the Evil CCP Organizations
For years I was deceived by the CCP until the moment I learned the truth. I was literally on the verge of a mental breakdown! I’m breaking away from the evil party completely, and withdraw from all the evil CCP organizations.
Announcement of Withdrawal From the Evil CCP Organizations
We withdraw from the evil CCP organizations, including the evil Youth League and Young Pioneers. Quitting the evil CCP is the first step for China to get away from total ruin, the first step for everybody to step away from the darkness in our hearts, and the first step towards the future!

I Choose a Bright Future
I am from a family that believes in Buddha and divine beings. I feel sad and helpless about today’s Chinese society–chaos, loss of morality, materialism, a hard life, and so forth. Hearing the truth told by a lady from my hometown, I suddenly realized that the root of all the evil in China is the foreign devil, the Communist Party. I asked her to help me to withdraw online from the evil Party’s Youth League and Young Pioneers, which I joined in school. I choose a bright future for myself.

We Have Been Deceived by the Evil Party
The Internet is developing so fast that we can break the CCP’s blockade and learn the truth. We found out that we have been deceived by the evil Party for years. Now we finally get to know the truth. Therefore we want to break away from the evil CCP’s control, to show God our choice. We announce our withdrawal from all the CCP-related organizations that we once joined.
