In February 2006, the monthly withdrawals from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations [the Communist Youth League (CYL) and the Communist Young Pioneers (CYP)], have reached a new high of 881,874, with the daily average of 31,495. These withdrawals were made on The Epoch Times' Tuidang (Quitting the CCP) Website. On February 12, the number of withdrawals hit a daily record high of over 46,000. So far, more than 8.5 million Chinese people have declared their withdrawals from the CCP and its affiliated organizations on the Tuidang Website. Since May of 2005, the average daily number of withdrawals has been more than 20,000.
The rapid growth of withdrawals from the CCP has been attributed to the fast spread of the “Nine Commentaries” in mainland China. Since last year, copies of the “Nine Commentaries” along with the informational materials on quitting the CCP and various slogans have often been seen in public places in all the provinces and cities of China. Some of the phrases on these slogans include: “The CCP killed over 80 million Chinese,” “The CCP is not the same as China,” “The CCP is doomed to be destroyed,” and “Quitting the CCP is for your own safety.”
Beijing residents are always quickest to get news. They have witnessed many of the CCP's bloody crimes including the June 4, 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre. They have also taken a lead in the CCP withdrawal wave. Since the CCP withdrawal service was opened through Internet circumvention technologies such as DynaWeb and UltraReach in February 2005, Beijing has led the nation in quitting the CCP for 10 months (February through October in 2005 and January in 2006), and ranked second for the other three months.
Since the second half of last year the China Central Television (CCTV) and many provincial and/or municipal television channels have been intercepted to broadcast information about the “Nine Commentaries” and quitting the CCP more than 10 times. Through breaking the CCP's information blockade, the news of the grand wave of resignations from the CCP has been spread to a massive number of Chinese people in China.
The largest-scale intercepted broadcast took place on the night of July 3, 2005. The signals of 13 television channels from CCTV and 12 channels from nine provinces were intercepted to broadcast information regarding the “Nine Commentaries” and quitting the CCP. The interception lasted for about 15 minutes. Viewers in Shanghai and Shenzhen cities, Guangdong, Hunan, Yunnan, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, and Zhejiang provinces were shocked to learn this major news that has been covered up by the CCP.
According to the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP, every day there have been many volunteers and dedicated people overseas working on passing on information regarding the “Nine Commentaries” and quitting the CCP to mainland China through online chatting, email, BBS, phone and fax.
In the face of the continuous rising wave of withdrawals, the CCP has been making arrests in China and harassing people who have withdrawn from the CCP. Many human rights activists and democracy activists who have withdrawn from the CCP using their real names, including Beijing attorney Gao Zhisheng, Hu Jia and Zhao Xin, have all met with retaliation and persecution from the CCP. The CCP is also using its power to intimidate people, especially students, into joining the CCP (the CYL and the CYP). This has already become a common phenomenon. Some authorities even bribe CCP members with money into participating in Party activities.
Additionally, the CCP has continued to attack The Epoch Times violently. On February 8, Epoch Times IT Director Dr. Li Yuan was beaten by knife and gunpoint at his home by CCP thugs. Moreover, on February 28, 2006, hammer-wielding thugs dispatched by the CCP broke into a Hong Kong Epoch Times printing plant that had just started printing. They destroyed an expensive piece of printing equipment. The Epoch Times offices in Australia and Europe have also encountered harassment to various degrees.
Epoch Times Chief Editor Ms. Guo Jun said, “From the fight over the past few years, the CCP knows clearly that The Epoch Times will not yield to violence.” Yet recently, the CCP has created a series of violent incidents to vent its rage. This indicates that the CCP is completely out of control. It also reveals the “Nine Commentaries” and the withdrawal wave's true influence in mainland China. The disintegration of the CCP is imminent.”
