Today a powerful movement is sweeping China. You may not read about it in the news or see it on television, but it has the potential to dramatically alter the course of China’s future, with significant ramifications not only for that country, but also for the global geopolitical landscape.
This movement is called Tuidang, and it involves millions of Chinese who have renounced and their affiliations with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The Tuidang movement began in late 2004 with the publication of a book-length editorial series titled “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” by The Epoch Times newspaper (see videos online).The “Nine Commentaries” details the Communist Party’s history of repression, andconcludes that China will not be free for as long as the Party continues to rule.
However, the movement does not bear the usual markings of a democracy movement: its leaders are not prominent intellectuals drawing inspiration from Kant and Jefferson, it is not driven by students, and it is unlikely to produce a goddess of democracy akin to that which appeared in Tiananmen Square in 1989.
Instead, this movement for change is deeply spiritual, peaceful, and unmistakably Chinese. And though it remains rarely known in the west, it is likely the most diverse and largest dissident movement to emerge in China in over two decades.
The Tuidang movement’s participants have varied backgrounds, experiences, and motivations for denouncing the Communist Party. Some of them cite the Communist Party’s destruction of traditional Chinese culture as their reason for defecting. Many recall their suffering under Great Leap Forward, the Cultural Revolution, or the suppression of Falun Gong. And where some people were victims of the Communist Party’s numerous violent campaigns, others were the perpetrators of human rights violations, now seeking absolution and forgiveness for their complicity.
We invite you to explore this website for answers to frequently asked questions about the Tuidang movement, messages of support from elected officials in the West, and the centerpiece, our blog, which consists largely in excerpts of statements from Chinese who have disavowed the Communist Party.
We hope you find this information valuable in understanding the complex and often misunderstood dynamics of domestic Chinese politics and society. The information on this website—particularly the running translations of renunciation statements posted on our blog—cannot be found anywhere.
Now that you know about it, we welcome you to spread the word: send a message of support to the millions of Chinese citizens who are participating in this non-violent movement to restore a culture of peace, respect for human rights, and freedom in China.
The service centers in different regions have the following main responsibilities:
1. Receive people’s three withdrawals phone calls and facsimiles, and help them publish their statements at the Quitting CCP website http://tuidang.epochtimes.com, including verbal statements.
2. Set up service sites in Chinese communities, tourist spots and other places; play sound recordings and the video recording; hold photo exhibits, widely disseminate the “Nine Commentaries” and information about quitting the Chinese Communist Party.
3. According to the constitutions and the legal stipulations of the countries and the regions, Organize and participate in various assemblies and seminars to support the people in China who quit the Party; make people aware of the Chinese Communist Party’s harassment and persecution towards the people who have quit the Party and at the same time, introduce government officials, representatives, international organizations and media to the “Nine Commentaries” and the “Three Withdrawals.” This effort also includes the introduction of the incidents of the evil Communist Party persecuting the people who have quit the Party, to win support from worldwide just forces.
4. Utilize online chat rooms, telephone calls, facsimiles, emails, radio broadcasts and many other methods to deliver the “Nine Commentaries” to all areas in China and publicize the progress and information of the “Three Withdrawals,” and answer the citizens' related questions.
The GSCQCCP’s website provides everyone with a platform of information and experience sharing about global activities resulting from dissemination of the “Nine Commentaries” and about the “Three Withdrawals.” The service centers in different areas should collectively support various columns in the website and provide information and reports for the website.
The GSCQCCP, in cooperation with Quitting the Party website ( In Chinese) of The Epoch Times, has established an ongoing, informative news column that features information regarding the “Three Withdrawals.” This column will publish guidelines and methods for registering and transmitting lists of names of people who did the “Three Withdrawals.” This column also contains working instructions and will correct potential problems in a timely manner for the rapidly increasing number of volunteers in different regions. These volunteers are the people aiding in the distribution of the “Nine Commentaries” and are the ones urging people to accomplish the “Three Withdrawals.” We want to do this to be certain we can carry on our work in a serious and ethical manner.
