CHINA—On May 1, many satellite TV channel programs in Guangzhou City had been replaced, on some channels, and even displayed pictures and slogans against the communist regime. Many mainland media reported the incident, as well as Hong Kong and Taiwan media. Mainland media avoided reporting the content.

According to a Southern Metropolitan News report from May 2, between 8:00 pm to 8:40 pm on the evening of May 1, the newspaper received dozens of cable TV viewer reports that the TV program had been replaced. The news report has been reprinted by at least 42 media on the mainland, but none of these media reported the content.

As of May 5, all major media in China have removed these news reports, including the Southern Metropolitan News's, and major Internet news outlets Netease, Soho, People's Net, Sina, etc.

According to Hong Kong's South China Morning Post report, besides Guangdong Province, similar incidents also occurred on TV stations in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Chengdu, Suzhou, Nanjing, Wuhan, Tianjin and other stations.

Familiar Slogans

Taiwan's Central News Agency reported that people from Guangdong Province also saw slogans such as “Overthrow the Chinese Communist Party,” “Opposing One Party Dictatorship,” etc. People from Henan Province told the overseas independent satellite TV station, New Tang Dynasty TV (NTDTV), that same night that slogans such as “Communist Party, Killing Party,” “Communist Party, Gangster Party,” “Communist Party, Cult Party,” showed up on a Beijing Satellite TV channel, and lasted for several minutes.

The above three slogans are often seen in the Quit the CCP Campaign overseas. Currently, over 21 million Chinese have announced their withdrawals from the Chinese communist party and its affiliated organizations through the internet. The communist regime is doing its best to block this information from spreading.

Who's the Party Deceiving

Ma Xiaoming, former Shanxi Provincial TV Station journalist told Epoch Times journalist, “I have heard about TV inserted content many times, most of them are information about the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, Quit the CCP and Falun Gong truth information. The insert has become a well known story, but the regime still says that it's a 'State Secret,' it wants to deceive people, but actually it's deceiving itself.”

Ma also commented that as usual, the regime will definitely pretend nothing happened on the surface and investigate tightly behind the scenes, it shows the regime is very unconfident and terrified.

Many Chinese internet surfers also posted their supporting messages for the inserted content, although the messages don't last long because of the tight Internet control. One surfer using an alias Zhang Mengyao wrote, “support the successful inserted content in Guangdong, which lets more Chinese people wake up and completely disintegrate the evil communist party.”

Growing Numbers Quit the Party

Regarding the incident, the Global Quit the CCP center, which facilitates the “Quit the CCP campaign” commented that it demonstrates more and more people sense the end of the communist regime is coming, and the center also reports more and more people have started to use their real names when registering with the center to quit the communist party and its affiliate organizations.

One center staffer said that one Chinese rural worker who wants to use his real name to quit a communist affiliated organization and told her on the phone, “In the mountain areas and countryside, a child has no money to pay for school, their future means nothing to them, they are illiterate and know nothing, people in my hometown say nothing good about the communist party.”
