Editor’s note: The Epoch Times here publishes direct translations of statements made by Chinese people in renouncing the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its subordinate organizations. Statements such as these are submitted to a website affiliate of the Chinese version of The 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: the Chinese people turning their backs on the Communist Party, choosing conscience over pragmatism, and peacefully ushering in a future China, free of Party rule.
The following is a selection of edited “Tuidang” (Party-Quitting) statements made by Chinese nationals during December 2011.
I Quit from the Youth League and the Young Pioneers
I have long known that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) uses violence and lies. Three generations of my family have suffered greatly because of the CCP. I hereby solemnly declare that I quit the Youth League and the Young Pioneers. I hope more people can see the CCP’s real nature.

I Want to Quit the Chinese Youth League
The rotten CCP, the corrupted officials, and the darkness in society have made me feel that the CCP is doomed. I no longer want to live under the CCP’s reign and want to quit the Chinese Youth League.

I Want to Quit the Evil CCP and Its Affiliates
I am a veteran. The CCP is very corrupt and speaks nothing but lies. The CCP never fought the Japanese [during the so-called Long March in 1933-34] but advertises that it did in all its propaganda. It cares nothing about the people’s welfare.

I Want To Quit the Chinese Communist Party
I am a legal service worker in China. Years of working and life experience have given me a clear understanding of the nature of the CCP. Now that I have discovered your wonderful window [The Chinese Epoch Times’ website], I solemnly declare that right now, I quit the CCP. I want to leave such an evil organization and become reborn.

Quitting the Youth League and the Young Pioneers
I am an old man who has gone through many of the CCP’s movements. When I was hospitalized, I heard a Falun Gong practitioner talking about how the CCP persecutes practitioners. I also learned information about quitting the CCP and its affiliates. I believe in God and I know that the CCP’s atheism is an enormous sin. I now declare that I quit the Youth League and the Young Pioneers and choose a good future for myself.

I withdraw from the CCP, the Youth League, and the Young Pioneers
I work at a television station in China. I have seen how the CCP has faked news in the past many years. Framing and viciously slandering Falun Gong was their ultimate evil deed. The CCP is bound to be punished by God. I solemnly declare that I quit the evil CCP, Youth League, and Young Pioneers, and all vows I swore when I joined these organizations are obsolete.
Mingliang from Heilongjiang, China
We like the idea of dissembling the CCP by doing the three withdrawals. We hope that China will have a peaceful transition to becoming a democratic and free society.

Statement to Quit the CCP and its Affiliates
The Chinese nation has been through too many catastrophes, and we cannot afford to let the demonic CCP continue to torment us. We declare that we quit the CCP and its affiliates. We want to do something to help disintegrate the CCP.
