Editor’s note: The Epoch Times here publishes direct translations of statements made by the 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 are 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 edited Tuidang (“quitting the Party”) statements made by Chinese nationals on July 10, 2012.
My Statement of Quitting the Youth League and Young Pioneers
We all know how corrupt the CCP is. In our work unit, the income of a small middle-level cadre is several times more than that of the regular workers. There is a great gap between the rich and the poor. Officers plunder everything they can lay their hands on. As soon as I was advised to make the “three withdrawals” by a good-hearted man, I agreed to withdraw from all the evil Party’s organizations. I hope this dictatorial regime will perish as soon as possible, so that people in China can soon enjoy freedom and justice, and we can lead a better life.

The CCP is a Cult
Everything the CCP has done or is doing is a reflection of its rascal nature. Although the communists concealed all the evil deeds they did before, today they can no longer conceal anything. The CCP is actually a cult that prohibits people from telling the truth. Whoever tells the truth is punished and even thrown into jail.
We hereby solemnly announce that we quit all the affiliated organizations that belong to the CCP. After cleaning off the mark branded on me by the evil beast, I will secure my future and life when Heaven perishes the CCP. In quitting the CCP I am choosing a bright future for myself.

Announcement of Quitting the Youth League
I have already lost confidence in the government that rules China today. This government is corrupt, incompetent and extravagant. The officers are only interested in trading power for money and colluding with gangsters. Being against the government is now the heartfelt wish for most people. However, we are not yet brave enough to speak out our resentment towards the CCP. I solemnly announce that I withdraw from the Youth League and its affiliated organizations.

“Free Gate” Reveals the Truth
My wife and I voluntarily withdraw from the Youth League and Young Pioneers. I have introduced five of my friends to the Free Gate software and shown them how to install it. “Free Gate” lets them know the truth and allows them to see for themselves what’s going on in the real world.

I’m Disgusted with the CCP’s Organizations
I have long been disgusted with the CCP’s organizations. It is a corrupt, murderous, lying and shameless Party. I loathe its persecution of Falun Gong practitioners. It deprives people of their freedom of belief. I hereby announce that I withdraw from the CCP’s evil organizations and the Young Pioneers.

I Quit the CCP During My Trip to Australia/New Zealand
I read the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” when on a trip to Australia, and I realized how vicious the CCP is. I am now in New Zealand and I’ve asked a volunteer in the Tuidang Service Center to help me quit the Communist Party’s organizations. Thank you!
