“In this time of global crisis, I urge everyone to listen when Falun Dafa practitioners tell you about the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) said, Mrs. Hong. “They are telling you the truth.”
After a Falun Dafa practitioner told the truth about the persecution to Mr. Hong and his wife they understood the true nature of the CCP. The elderly couple decided that they no longer wanted to be associated with it and made a statement on the Epoch Times website when they posted their withdrawal from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
Mrs. Hong explained what happened afterward: “One day two people from my husband’s workplace came to our home. They wanted to take a photo of him. They took out a form and told him to sign it. When my husband asked what it was, they said it was a CCP registration form. My husband said, “I’ve withdrawn from the CCP. I won’t fill out the form and you can’t take my photo.” My husband refused to re-register for the CCP no matter what they said. Before they left they said, “We don’t have the authority to approve or disapprove your withdrawal. Go talk to your workplace leader.”
“My husband and I went to his workplace the next day. My husband told the CCP secretary that he was determined to withdraw from the Party. The secretary said, ‘You’ve been retired for several years now and are already elderly. What difference does it make whether you’re a member or not?’ My husband explained why he wanted to withdraw. But no matter how my husband explained it, the secretary refused to approve his withdrawal. I became anxious and said, ‘If you don’t let him withdraw, I’ll divorce him!’ The secretary replied, ‘I won’t approve his withdrawal even if you divorce him.’”
We went home but my husband stopped paying the Party membership dues. When a community staffer later came to our home and asked my husband to register his CCP membership, my husband said, ‘Don’t register me. I’m not a member of the CCP.’ The man asked, ‘Are you really not a member?’ My husband clearly and loudly said, ‘I’m not a member of CCP!’ The man left.
My entire family of five all understand the facts about Falun Dafa and we’ve all withdrawn from the CCP and its affiliated organizations.
