Hong Kong Parade Delivers a Different Message on Oct. 1
While a massive display honoring the 60th anniversary of the Chinese Communist regime played out in Beijing on Oct. 1, the Tianguo Marching Band set out through the busy streets of Hong Kong with a vastly different message.
With banners, music, and 600 participants, the parade started with a rally at an amusement park, and went from Eastern District to the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government in West District. Well-known guests urged people to use the occasion of the 60th anniversary celebration to withdraw from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
“The CCP is a fragile regime, and may collapse at any time,” announced Szeto Wah, Chairman of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China. He thinks that is why Beijing has behaved as if it were at war over the past month.
The movement of people resigning from the CCP and its affiliated organizations began shortly after The Epoch Times published the “Nine Commentaries on the Chinese Communist Party” in 2004. A Web site keeps track of the number of people who write statements renouncing the Party and negating the pledges they once made to give their lives for the Party. The Web site has recorded over 60 million renunciations to date.
Dr. David Gao, Chairman of the Service Center for Quitting the Chinese Communist Party, said that after he had collected opinions from Chinese people around the world, he began referring to the National Day Celebration as Chinese Memorial Day, referring to what he believes to be the imminent collapse of the CCP.
“The Soviet Union and the Romanian Communist Party have collapsed. The CCP is walking the same path,” Gao said. “It is because the CCP is so afraid that it needed to boost itself by showing all its armed might in a military review parade.”
Jia Jia, defected former Secretary General of the Shanxi Provincial Association of Science and Technology Experts, called upon the Chinese people to let go of fear and cowardice. “We must tell the CCP that we are not afraid of it, and we will combat it. We will do what the CCP fears—that a vast number of its members will quit.”
Zheng Enchong, a human rights attorney from Shanghai, announced publicly that he had renounced the CCP. “With all of its corruption, the CCP is the enemy of the 1.3 billion Chinese people,” Zheng said. “The Chinese people have a right to withdraw from the Party.”
