Hong Kong: Withdrawing from the CCP Is Common in China Hong Kong Falun Gong practitioners and volunteers at Tuidang center for quitting CCP (Chinese communist party), held a march on December 7, 2014, to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the publication of the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party – the book that triggered the grassroots movement of Chinese quitting the CCP. A first-year undergraduate student from Guangzhou was very excited after watching the march. “I knew about the book Nine Commentaries. Some of my friends and I have renounced our memberships in the Party,” he said. “The book is well-known, and withdrawing from the Party is common in China. Many people who go to other countries like Hong Kong and Macao bring that information back to China.” Ms. He from Zhejiang said she had just withdrawn her Party membership with the help of a Tuidang volunteer. “I admire the freedom of speech in Hong Kong. In China, such news is tightly controlled. I seldom hear of it,” she said.
