Editor’s note: The 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 , Dajiyuan. The movement to renounce, withdraw from, or quit the CCP, called ‘tuidang’ in Chinese, began in late 2004, soon after The 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.
Statement of Withdrawal from the CCP
I am Qing Long from Zhengzhou City, Anhui Province. I work in a suburb of Nanjing City. I came to know about withdrawal from the CCP from a Falun Gong practitioner at a market that I visit often. At first, I didn’t quite understand and believe it. I carefully read several booklets and got to know more about what Falun Gong really is. Falun Gong is not like what the Communist Regime’s propaganda makes it out to be. They cultivate to be true, good and endure. I support them. They are all good people. I joined the evil CCP when I was in the military. For the sake of my own future, I have decided to withdraw from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
I am Li Xiaoxian from Xi’an City. I too work in a suburb of Nanjing City. I used to work at the same company as Qing Long. I ran into him by chance and got to know the truth from the same Falun Gong practitioner. Although I didn’t join the CCP or the Youth League, I was a member of its Young Pioneers. For the sake of my own future, I too hereby declare my withdrawal from this evil organization.
Qing Long, Li Xiaoxian
Statement of Withdrawal from the Youth League
Although I’m already above the age limit, I still want to take the opportunity to declare my withdrawal from the Chinese Communist Youth League!
I’m also pleased that I didn’t join the Communist Party when I was in college ten years ago. The students who filed the application to join the CCP copied the application essay from each other, with the same format. It was all fake! When asked whether they would contribute their entire life to struggle for the cause of Communism as they wrote in the application, they were all speechless! Getting a good career through the CCP was their goal!
Looking forward to the replacement of the CCP dictatorship by a new democratic party. Give the Chinese people a free democratic country!
Withdraw from the CCP to Get a Peaceful Life
I am a senior official at the Ministry of Public Security. I know that the persecution on Falun Gong initiated by Jiang Zemin is illegal and stupid and I know that the persecution by the 610 Office is very cruel. I support Falun Gong’s Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance and believe that it constitutes the core values of traditional Chinese culture. Today, a good friend brought me the information of withdrawal from CCP. I asked my friend to send the withdrawal statement on my behalf so that I may have a better future. I hope the police officers who work in the Security Bureau stop persecuting Falun Gong, withdraw from the vicious CCP, and get a better future for themselves and their families.

I Want to Withdraw from the CCP Young Pioneers
I just received an email today attached with an anti-censorship software. I always felt that there was something wrong with China, but I didn’t know what exactly the problems were. Now that I have used the software to read some articles, I understand more clearly. I decided to withdraw from the CCP Young Pioneers immediately. I remember I took an oath when joining the Young Pioneers, but I have forgotten what I swore. I am not concerned about whether this withdrawal will give me peace or safety. I just want to stay away from this organization because it just makes me feel sick!!!
