"Three Quits" propaganda

2009-04-08 Author:China Association for Cultic Studies

The so-called "Three Quits" refers to "quitting the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) membership," "quitting the Chinese Communist Youth League (CCYL) membership" and "quitting Chinese Young Pioneer (CYP) membership." It was a rumor churned out by Falun Gong which aimed at overthrowing the Chinese government.


At the end of November 2004, the Epoch Times of Falun Gong released the series articles of "Nine Comments on CCP." Soon after that, Falun Gong cooked up the rumor of "quitting the Party," established the so-called "Quit the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Service Center" and its website. The website constantly updated the figure Falun Gong imagined, and the people who "quitting the Party" increased at the rate of 30,000 to 60,000 each day. The figure was questioned both in and outside China, and many Falun Gong followers also suspected of the rumor. To patch up the lie, Falun Gong came up with another "two quits" – quitting the CCYL and the CYP.


The "Three Quits" figure was merely a political game of Falun Gong.


According to Falun Gong, the people who quit the Party increase at the rate of 30,000 to 60,000 every day. By the end of April 2009, the "Three Quits" Party members reached 53 million plus people. The figure only indicates the ignorant wish of Falun Gong: the CCP would collapse dramatically.


Yet the fact is that, the CCP members increase at the rate of 1,500,000 each year instead of decreasing. On October 8, 2007, the Organization Department of CCP Central Committee publicized a statistic: up to June 2007, the CCP members in China amounted to 73,363,000 compared to 64,220,000 members in 2002, when Sixteenth National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party was held. The average increase rate was 1,427,000 people, or 2.1 per cent each year.


According to the Chinese Youth League Central Committee, by the end of 2007, the CCYL members in China reached 75,439,000 compared to 69,860,000 members in 2002, with an increase rate of eight per cent each year. And according to the National CYP Working Committee, the CYP members amounted to about 130,000,000 children.


The facts reveal that the so-called "Three Quits" propaganda of Falun Gong was a sheer fabrication and extremely ridiculous.
