Australia is a popular destination for tourists from China. At many tourist sites, volunteers from the Tuidang Quit the CCP Service Center help Chinese tourists to quit the Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations while visiting Sydney.
Those volunteers, mostly Falun Gong practitioners, often have very interesting experiences of Chinese people quitting the CCP, and the task is not always an easy one. We share some of their inspiring encounters here.
One day a volunteer saw a group of four Chinese men near the Sydney Opera House and asked where they were from. Hearing they came from Hebei Province, she said, “My husband’s originally from Hebei. Welcome to Australia!”
She realized that one of them was a party secretary and another one, a department director. The volunteer pointed to a nearby shop and said, “Last year, a ministry level official quit the Party in that coffee shop. Last August, a delegate from the Chinese Central Military Commission quit the CCP at the Sydney Opera House. Over 150 million Chinese have now quit the CCP, the Youth League and/or the Young Pioneers. I can help you to quit here.”
The party secretary smiled and agreed. Then she turned to the department director and asked, “You want to quit, too, don’t you?” After he also quit the CCP, she asked the two others, and they agreed to quit as well.
After quitting the CCP, people express their gratitude
One day, a couple in their 80s sat on the stone bench outside the Sydney Opera House. After a volunteer helped them to quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations, the old man said, “I had a dream last night telling me that I would meet an important person today. Now I know you are this ‘Important Person.’”
A 50-year-old woman from Beijing quit the CCP and then hugged the volunteer who had helped her and cried. She said with tears in her eyes, “Had I not come here, I would not have known about it (quitting the CCP to be safe). You are so kind.” Her son also quit the Youth League and stood aside with eyes red and wet.
When a tour bus arrived with a group of Chinese at a tourist site, a volunteer talked to a middle-aged man from Xinjiang Autonomous District. He said his parents were scholars sent to Xinjiang by Mao Zedong in the 1960s. He sighed and said his parents had died after a lot of suffering. The volunteer told him why he should quit the CCP, and he quickly agreed.
The volunteer told him that he should help his subordinates and superiors to quit, as well as his family members. He agreed.
