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. 6-8, 2013.
The Party Has Ruined the Whole of China
I once joined the CCP and its related organizations such as the Youth League and Young Pioneers. Now, I solemnly announce that I withdraw from all of them.
Everyone knows how corrupt the CCP is. It is an evil, violent, and deceptive organization. The evil deeds it has done and the number of people who have been persecuted by it are countless. It has ruined the whole of China. There is no hope for it. I know some people who practice Falun Gong. They are all good people. But the CCP purposefully and specifically target these good people. If the CCP is not eliminated, there’s no justice in the world.
We withdraw from the CCP, and gladly live with our consciences! The Chinese New Year is just around the corner, and we want to take this opportunity to wish Master Li Hongzhi a “Happy New Year!” Master Li and Falun Gong are the hope for China. We wish Master Li good health and happiness!
The CCP Destroyed Our Value System
We are father and daughter, both Christians. We think the atheism propagated by the CCP is deceiving people. Its evil deeds in China have produced many narrow-minded and faithless atheists, thereby destroying the value system that people depend on for living a normal life.
We support the procedure of using aliases on overseas websites to withdraw from the CCP and its organizations, which also represents the people’s will. We announce that we quit the CCP and its organizations that we joined a long time ago!
Song Shiping, Song Xianglian
Withdrawal From the CCP’s Youth League
I’m over 80 years old. I’m glad that I have a chance in my lifetime to read The Epoch Times and to know the truth. I announce that I withdraw from the evil CCP organization.
Withdrawal from the CCP’s Young Pioneers
I’m a retired worker of a big state-owned factory. Under the CCP regime, everything is a sham in China, including the big state-owned enterprises’ accounting books. If they don’t “cook the books,” the heads of the factories cannot get a high salary and bonuses. It’s not hard to imagine the situation in other businesses. The Chinese people have been ruined by the CCP to such an extent. After hearing the truth about Falun Gong, I understand why the CCP is afraid of Falun Gong. It is because Falun Gong’s principles are Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance, which the CCP is afraid of and against. Here I announce that I withdraw from the CCP’s Young Pioneer Team and its other evil organizations.
Withdrawal from the CCP
I’m 68 years old. I was in the military as a commander and a colonel. So many good people died in the Cultural Revolution, the Tiananmen massacre, and the persecution of Falun Gong. I don’t have any hope for the CCP. Now I withdraw from all CCP organizations, joining the historical trend and choosing a bright future. Thank you Falun Gong practitioners!
Withdrawal From the CCP Is the Greatest Fortune of My Life
Experiencing the CCP’s evil and corruption for decades, today in my declining years I finally have a chance to ask overseas relatives to help me withdraw from the evil CCP, erasing the beast’s mark. It’s the greatest fortune of my life!
The CCP has been ruining the country and destroying the Chinese people. Now that its true nature is revealed, everybody hates it. We firmly withdraw from the evil party, its Youth League, and the Young Pioneers.
Shi Jiankang, Ma Youde, Chen Lijie, and 5 others
Announcement to Withdraw from the CCP’s Youth League
After hearing the truth about the fake “self-immolation” case, we are clearer about the CCP’s evil nature which enrages both heaven and earth. Now we voluntarily withdraw from the CCP’s Youth League and choose a bright future for ourselves.
Gao Dan, Cui Wenjing
Withdrawal from the CCP’s Youth League
I believe in retribution, and I know how great the sin is to destroy so many lives. Therefore, I announce my withdrawal from the evil CCP’s Youth League that I was coerced to join.
Waiting for a CCP-Free Era
When I was in college I wanted to find a good job, so I applied to join the CCP. Looking back now, I see that the Party controls all the resources and uses financial incentives to coerce Chinese people to join it. As a witness to the Party officials’ corruption and the ruin of basic human values, I don’t want to have any connection with it. Therefore, I voluntarily withdraw from the Party, welcoming a new China that doesn’t have the CCP!
Withdrawal From the CCP’s Youth League
I wanted to withdraw from the CCP a long time ago, but thought that having Party membership might bring me some “benefits” in relation to the college entrance exams and other competitions. But they have done so many evil deeds, I’d rather not have these so-called “benefits.”
