As of July 16, over 142 million Chinese have renounced any association with the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organizations.
The movement to quit the Party, or “tuidang” in Chinese, began in December 2004, after the publication of the editorial series “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” by the Epoch Times.
Those renouncing the Party are allowed to use pseudonyms, and their wishes are conveyed to the Global Service Center for Quitting the Chinese Communist Party by email, fax, telephone, and letter, as well as in person at service centers around the world.
Ms. Yi Rong, the president of the Global Service Center, said the pace of renouncing the Party is quickening.
“The wave of quitting CCP has become bigger and bigger,” Yi said. “We have groups quitting the CCP that are as big as thousands of people.”
She explained that the groups who are quitting the CCP are doing so because their welfare has been damaged so badly they find living difficult. “And so they seek us out quite proactively,” Yi said.
Yi feels the size of the number of 140 million shows how the Chinese people as a whole have abandoned the hopes they may have once placed in the CCP.
