TORONTO —Hundreds of Chinese people gathered in Grange Park, Toronto, on Saturday in a show of support for the 50 million mainland Chinese who have publicly withdrawn from the Chinese Communist Party.
Among speakers at the rally was Cindy Gu, publisher of The Epoch Times.
“The massive yet peaceful movement to quit the Chinese Communist Party is one of the most significant news events in the world today,” she said.
Ms. Gu noted that around 80 million Chinese people have died unnatural deaths due to the Chinese Communist Party’s various political campaigns against specific groups in China.
Past campaigns targeted land owners, business people, religious groups, intellectuals, democracy activists, and most recently, Falun Gong practitioners. The Chinese Communist Party is also blamed for causing the largest man-made famine in human history, leading to the deaths of some 30 million Chinese people.
After the rally, the gathered crowd lined up and had a parade through Toronto’s Chinatown.
