On June 10th, 2006, Falun Gong practitioners held activities to celebrate the milestone of 11 million people quitting the Chinese Communist Party and its affiliated organisations. On the day, practitioners held a large scale rally, after which the attendees held a parade around Chinatown.

Mr. Youzhi Ma, the rally host and representative of the Northern California Service Center for Quitting the CCP, said, "Since the Nine Commentaries was published in November 2004, the number of people renouncing the CCP and its related organisations through online statements on The Epoch Times website has reached eleven million. More and more people have recognised the evil nature of the CCP, as its crimes such as live organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners are being exposed."

Dr. Fan: The CCP's Atrocities of Live Organ Removal Must Be Stopped
Falun Gong practitioner Dr. Fan was an obstetrician for 30 years in China. She said that she shudders when thinking about the live organ removal by the CCP.
Dr. Fan said: "The CCP persecutes Falun Gong practitioners under the mandate of 'ruining their reputations, bankrupting them financially, and destroying them physically.' The CCP's doctors conduct live organ removal from practitioners, which is an abominable crime."
Dr. Fan continued, "How painful and miserable it must be to have one's cornea removed while he is alive. We know that the liver's function is detoxification. Heavy bleeding will occur when the liver is removed. Such atrocities are unimaginable in democratic countries. The CCP's barbarities must be stopped immediately. We call on everyone to help stop the CCP's live organ removal practices and its persecution of Falun Gong."
The CCP Will Fall as the Communist Party Did in Eastern Europe
Steve, who is originally from Romania, came to celebrate the eleven million withdrawals from the CCP and its affiliated organisations. He said, "The Nine Commentaries exposed the CCP's crimes. After reading the Nine Commentaries, people understand the CCP's evil nature and bravely quit by breaking through the CCP's internet blockade."
In the 1980's, he lived in Romania under the control of the Communist Party and knew of its brutality. After reading the Nine Commentaries, he understood more about the CCP's evil nature. He said, "In 1989, the collapse of communist parties in Eastern Europe was so fast that people could not believe it. For example, in Romania, it was only four days from the start of the people's marches to the collapse of the communist party. Thus we congratulate those brave people quitting the CCP and hope that more Chinese people will do the same."
Passerby: More People Should Know About the CCP's Atrocities
A local resident said to a reporter at the event: "I have heard of Falun Gong and the CCP's persecution. It is my first time to hear of live organ removal from Falun Gong practitioners. If it is true, it is too horrible. I think that more people should know about such atrocities."
Local Resident: The CCP Will Collapse Soon
Mr. Lin, a local resident who fled the CCP's control, came to participate in the rally and parade. He said that in the 1950's, he was in Thailand and returned to China in 1954 after listening to the CCP's propaganda. He regretted it after returning to China. He was suspected as a spy and lost his freedom. He was not allowed to return to Thailand. Later, he fled the CCP's control with the excuse of meeting his parents in Hong Kong.
Mr. Lin said that there is freedom in the U.S. and everyone can practise Falun Gong freely. He has gained good health physically and mentally after practising. He said, "I suffered from diabetes for more than ten years, but I recovered after practising Falun Gong. After practising the Falun Gong exercises, I feel stronger and healthier. I practise the Falun Gong exercises for two hours every day." Mr. Ling said that he bought many copies of Zhuan Falun [the main text of Falun Gong. Free download] to give to people.
