During the afternoon of November 11st, 2006, the Service Center for Quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the branch office of The Epoch Times in Washington DC held a rally in front of Capitol Hill of the United States. Overseas Chinese from all circles in Washington DC and metropolitan areas, experts on Chinese issues, and representatives of communities such as Vietnamese, Laotian and Cambodian, who have suffered from the Communist Party's tyrannical rule, jointly celebrated the second anniversary of the dissemination of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party and supported the 15 million Chinese people who have withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organisations.
Rally in Washington DC celebrates the second anniversary of disseminating the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party, and supports 15 million Chinese people who have quit the CCP and its affiliated organisations
On the afternoon of November 11st, people gathered in front of the pool on Capitol Hill, displaying banners reading, "Widespread of the Nine Commentaries," "Quit the CCP for One's Own Safety," "Service Center for Quitting the CCP." A steady flow of Chinese tourists took pictures of this special scene. One man who was with a tourist group of teachers from mainland China said that many ordinary Chinese people have received the messages on the Internet about the Nine Commentaries and quitting the CCP.
People in mainland China have recently been fond of collecting RMB (Chinese money) with the words, "Heaven will eliminate the CCP, quit the CCP for one's own safety." Quitting the CCP has become a hot topic of people in private conversations. Some Chinese officials have also announced their withdrawal from the CCP and have keep the codes obtained when they quit as evidence.
Mr. Yan who graduated from Fudan University in Shanghai said at the rally, "After reading the Nine Commentaries, I feel the writing is complete and precise. I've been deeply moved, and have read it several times. The Epoch Times exposed the CCP's true nature by publishing the Nine Commentaries, and it is indeed encouraging, particularly for Chinese people. Many of them dare not speak out the words in their minds even though they are very angry. The Epoch Times now exposes the CCP's true nature to the public, and the true situation of China has also been disclosed. Many people who have been deceived are awakening."
Mr. He, who is an expert on China said that the CCP sustains its power by fabricating lies and creating fear. Lies mentally prevent people from stepping forward, and fear prevents people from physically stepping forward. The Nine Commentaries and quitting the CCP fundamentally resolves these two problems. The Nine Commentaries destroy the lies and help people step forward mentally. Quitting the CCP helps people step forward.
Mr. Willie J.K. Chang, chairman of the Global Alliance for Democracy and Peace, Baltimore Chapter, said that 1.3 billion Chinese people have been kept under the control of the CCP. He also said that the problem of corruption has become worse, which has also been manipulated by the CCP. If the situation continues this way, it will not be a blessing for the Chinese people but a disaster.
Mr. Chang called on Communist Party members with conscience to quit the CCP and let this name disappear from the Chinese history.
Brian Marple, from an International Affairs Research Institute at George Washington University, called on America to support people who have quit the CCP and its affiliated organisations in China.
The editor-in-chief of The Epoch Times, Ms. Guo Jun, said that in the two years since the publication of the Nine Commentaries, there have been great changes in Chinese people. With the appearance of such a big event, as media they have the responsibility to tell the world's people what is happening in China. This is not only our responsibility but is done also from the perspective of our morality and justice.
