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 convenience, and 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 Apr. 7-11, 2013.
Withdraw from All Organizations Related to the Chinese Communist Party
Here I announce solemnly that I have withdrawn from the Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers. When I joined them I was muddleheaded, and I have not really believed in them. I came to the United States a few years ago and gradually I became aware of the facts that people cannot see in mainland China. Only then did I find how bad the CCP is: it has always been cheating people. All the Falun Gong practitioners I’ve met here are good people and none of them is like what the CCP has described. Facts have proven that whatever the CCP says, you should just believe the opposite.

The CCP is most evil. It has killed people at will in cold blood in order to maintain its power. We must abandon the CCP, withdraw from it and never associate with it, so as to choose a good future.

Announcement of Withdrawing from the Youth League and the Young Pioneers
We joined the Communist Youth League, but we’ve never believed in the Communist Party or communism. We’ve never had any good opinion of the CCP. Now we know God will exterminate the CCP for the countless crimes it has committed. We are sure the day will come! Here we announce our withdrawal from the Youth League, thoroughly breaking off with all organizations of the communist demon and wiping out its beast’s mark, thus giving ourselves safety and a bright future. We are expecting the day to come soon when the CCP is destroyed by God!

Withdraw from the Evil Organization
I’m finishing my studies abroad and will return to my homeland ruled by the CCP, so I dare not reveal my real name. But I’m determined to say no to the evil. I joined the Party with the intention of getting a better life. Besides, I was not aware of the truth. Now I think kindness and justice are more important, so I’ve decided to withdraw from this evil organization.

Announcement of Withdrawal from the CCP and its Related Organizations
I believe there are divinities above our head. In the society ruled by the CCP, human nature has become greedier, colder, and merciless. This is due to the rule of the CCP regime. Sooner or later the CCP will be overthrown and China will become a land of Buddhist civilization and propriety.

Withdraw From the CCP
For 5,000 years there were upright officials in every dynasty. Only in the CCP are there 10 corrupt individuals for every 10 officials. A regime based on corruption, dictatorship, and a hereditary clique is doomed to destruction. As a scholar, joining the Party was the biggest mistake in my life.

Announcement of Withdrawal from the Evil CCP, Communist Youth League and the Young Pioneers
The CCP is extremely evil and corrupt. I used to work in the political security section of the Public Security Bureau. Because I was not willing for a long time to do the job, I have retired ahead of time. I have not paid Party membership dues for several years. Now I announce my withdrawal from the CCP, Communist Youth League and Young Pioneers.

Announcement of Withdrawing from the Young Pioneers
When I was young I joined the YP unwittingly. Now that I’ve heard about the truth of forcibly extracting organs from Falun Gong practitioners, I’ve found that the Communist Party has no human nature at all and has destroyed humanity. So I’ve decided to withdraw from all its organizations.
