The Epoch Times publishes here direct translations of statements made by Chinese people who renounced the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliate youth organizations. Statements such as these are submitted to the Chinese language Epoch Times, Dajiyuan. The movement to renounce, withdraw from, or quit the CCP, called “Tuidang” in Chinese, began in late 2004, soon after The Epoch Times published the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party,” an editorial series that explores the nature and history of the CCP. The statements offer a rare and candid glimpse of history in the making. Chinese people are turning their backs on the Communist Party, choosing conscience over convenience, and are peacefully ushering in a future China, free of Party rule.

The following is a selection of “Tuidang” (quitting the Party) statements made by Chinese nationals on Dec. 18-20, 2012.

It’s a Mess Here in China

With or without the coming of doomsday, it’s a mess here in China. It’s best to quit the Chinese Communist Youth League to stay safe. I think it is even safer than buying a Noah’s Ark because, after all, God will protect the good people.

I Want to Quit to Stay Safe

The CCP is the largest criminal organization and evil cult that has been engaged in brutal killing and phony propaganda since the beginning of its rule. It has accumulated so much karma that it’s bound to be eliminated by God. I want to quit from the Chinese Communist Youth League and obey God’s will to stay safe.

The Chinese People Have Suffered Enough 

I solemnly declare to quit the Chinese Communist Party, Chinese Communist Youth League, and the Young Pioneers. Heaven should destroy the Chinese Communist regime as soon as possible. The Chinese people have suffered enough from this demon.

Quitting the Evil Party 

I am a veteran member of the Chinese Communist Party. I know many of the Party’s dirty and corruption secrets. I curse at it wherever I go. Now I learned that people can withdraw from the communist Party and its affiliated organizations, and I declare to quit from all the evil affiliates of the Party. I want to be no part of them. From now on, I will curse at it and tell people to quit it wherever I go.

Break Away From the Evil Restraint 

The Evil Chinese Communist Party wants to rule everything. It claims ownership of the lives of young children by having them join the Young Pioneers and the Youth League. Generation after generation of Chinese people give their lives to it. We vow to break away from the evil Party and want the Party and its affiliates to topple down.

I Want Freedom and Democracy

I was ignorant and naive when I joined the Young Pioneers. I am glad that I never joined the Youth League and the Communist Party. I want freedom, democracy, I want to live like a human being. I believe Chinese people will see the demonic nature of the Party and stop believing in it. The Party is bound to be destroyed and I hope the Chinese nation becomes more glorious than before.

Choosing Between China and the CCP 

The CCP is an evil spirit; it was born that way. To have any hope that the Party will improve is a waste of time. The people of China will not be happy until that Party collapses. Each day the Party exists, the land of China weeps blood.

Heaven will eliminate the CCP

The Chinese Communist Party is deteriorating and on the brink of collapse. Even common people like us see that. It is low and corrupt. It is evil and criminal through and through. It has so much blood on its hands from its brutal persecution of the Chinese people. This evil organization should not be allowed any opportunity to drag on. It has lied and deceived the Chinese people for so long that the Chinese people–even while being persecuted by it–are unknowingly acting as its accomplice in committing crimes. 

Nowadays, everywhere on the streets one hears the phrase, “Heaven will eliminate the CCP.” The compassionate gods are offering Chinese people salvation and giving them a way to stay safe by quitting the CCP and its affiliated groups. We all believe in it. The number of people who quit is increasing by the day. Today we solemnly declare that we quit from the Party and its affiliates. We want to stay away from these evil organizations and be real Chinese so a bright and beautiful future awaits us.

Quitting the CCP, Youth League, and Young Pioneers 

My supervisor at work, without my permission, did the paperwork for me to join the Chinese Communist Party. He forced me to participate in the ceremonies. Now I solemnly declare that I void such actions that were against my will. I quit the Party and all of its affiliates that I once joined.

The Chinese Regime is Bound to Receive Retribution 

I understand that the Chinese regime is bound to receive retribution for all the evil things it did over the years. I hereby quit the China Communist Youth League and all of the communist regime’s organizations.

I have always known that the CCP is bad, but I could not explain clearly why it is bad. Now I know the truth. The Party is a true cult, a beast that endangers people. I must quit it and all of its affiliates. I now quit the Youth League and the Young Pioneers.
