Tuidang rally in Los Angeles celebrating the 200 million people who have quit the CCP[/caption] Minghui.org According to the Epoch Times newspaper, as of April 14, 2015, 200 million people have publicly renounced their membership in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its two youth organizations. The branch of the Global Tuidang Center (the Global Center for Quitting the CCP) in Los Angeles organized a rally on April 18 to celebrate this milestone, calling on more Chinese to take a stance on this important matter. Several guests gave speeches at the rally. Helen Li, who volunteers at the center, explained the significance of the event. “Many people have decided to quit the CCP because they are no longer willing to side with the Party and harm innocent people. Instead they are hopeful for a new future. Two hundred million is an impressive number. It serves as a testimony, indicating that in the war between good and evil, goodness will prevail.” Near the Monterey Park City Hall, where the event was held, many people attending the annual cherry blossom festival were attracted by the rally. They stopped to listen and take pictures. Local resident Mr. Sun said that he had not joined any CCP organizations because he was never interested in the Party’s activities. “But I support this quitting the CCP movement. The CCP needs to be phased out of history and quitting this organization is the way to go,” he said.
