We must thank the authors of the Nine Commentaries for revealing the terrible truth of the Communist Party and telling the Chinese why they should have a better life,” said Richard Fisher, a senior researcher at the Washington think tank -the Center for International Assessment sent and Strategy. “Only when the Chinese understand this, will we open a new era and time.”

Communism is a nightmare.” Senator Robert Menendez said: “I initiated a resolution in the last session of the National Assembly to make people realize that the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong practitioners is still going on and the rise of the ‘quit the party’ movement.

I send congratulations to them.”

Writing: “When the Chinese announced their withdrawal from the CCP’s party, regiment, and team organization, their hearts and minds were freed from this… As the largest grassroots movement in the history of the people, the Tuidang movement brought a new dimension to the international community, a new blueprint for the Chinese society without communism; as a member of our society, the quit party movement and the participants have brought more resources to the State of New York, which deserves to be respected by all New Yorkers.”

I am with you, the United States is with you.” Texas Congressman Ted Poe said: “The CCP’s brutal persecution of Falun Gong practitioners has led to a large-scale movement to quit the Party and disintegrate the CCP.

  • Suzanne Scholte, president of Defense Forum Foundation, praised Falun Gong practitioners’ efforts in helping the Chinese people free themselves from communism. “Because the Chinese people know that China will never be a great and peaceful nation if the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) remains in power.

  • Faith McDonnell, the Director of Religious Liberty Programs and of the Church Alliance for a New Sudan, commented that the Tuidang movement will soon help unwind communist control of China. 59 “Hallelujah! The movement is sweeping China. How did they learn that? They learned the truth form the book ‘the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party,’” McDonnell said. “Thank you for speaking the truth. May you contribute to grow and be blessed in your knowledge of the truth.”
  • “Nowadays in the world, more and more countries and people there, even here at U.S., are bewitched by Communism ,Socialism, and its other forms. Someone gave up their own freedom, turn their own lives to the government. But you (Falun Gong) are the shining light of the world, because you understand the truth, lies, tyranny and terror of communism.” “I hope that you can tell the truth to those who have not experienced such persecution, including your neighbors, colleagues and friends, and remind them how grateful they can live in a free country.”
