(Clearwisdom.net) About 1,500 people from around the world held a rally on July 21, 2006 on Lafayette Square opposite the White House in Washington DC. They rallied in support of the 12 million Chinese people who have resigned from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and its affiliated organizations. More than a dozen speakers analyzed the inevitable trend of the disintegration of the CCP from different angles, including the persecution of Falun Gong and the organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners. They called on the people of China to quit the CCP and its affiliated associations as soon as possible. Following the rally, the group held a themed parade based on the Nine Commentaries, Quitting the CCP and efforts to end the persecution.

Atrocities like live organ harvesting will lead inevitably to the collapse of the CCP

Dr. Liu Zhengdao, dean of the Medical Institute of Natural Healing in San Diego spoke about a report he prepared analyzing organ transplant medical statistics in China. The result of his investigation is the same as the conclusion drawn by the two Canadian investigators, David Kilgour and David Matas, in their recent independent investigation of the organ harvesting allegations. Liu Zhengdao said, "In the past I was always very happy when publishing my report at the medical institute every year, reporting the results of my scientific research, but today, when I published this report, my heart was very heavy. No country is able to arbitrarily kill people for their organs, but the evil CCP is able to do it."

Human rights lawyer Ye Ning said that any regime that commits deeds so evil is doomed to collapse, and must be eliminated. This is the challenge that humanity now faces.

Ye Ning said that engaging in organ trafficking, not only harvesting kidneys, hearts, marrow, skin, corneas, but also setting prices for the live organs and then promoting, advertising, and selling them on the international trade, this is an atrocity that shakes the conscience of humanity.

Mr. Wu Baozhang, former director of the Chinese section of Radio France International (RFI) and a senior journalist, said that the CCP has spent a lot of money and organized much manpower to create its huge propaganda machine to constantly tell lies. If you take a good look at CCP-run newspapers, you will see how good the CCP is at telling lies. During its entire persecution of Falun Gong, the CCP propaganda machine has played its role. Repeating the patterns of past periods of repression, the first thing the CCP does to any group it wants to beat down is to demonize it using its vast propaganda machine encompassing all the newspapers, radio and TV outlets in China. The same was done with Falun Gong.

12 Million Quit the CCP

Chairman of the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP Gao Dawei said that since the publication of the Nine Commentaries, 12 million Chinese people have renounced the CCP and its affiliated associations.

Wu Baozhang said that the Nine Commentaries has thoroughly broken the mind bondage of the Chinese people imposed upon them by the CCP, triggered the grand tide of millions of people quitting the CCP. The disintegration of the CCP is inevitable.

After the rally, the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP, together with a hundred groups held a grand parade supporting the 12 million withdrawals. The parade set off from Lafayette Square, marching two miles, passing government organizations, companies, lawyers' offices and other office buildings. People in the parade held banners and display boards while passing out the Nine Commentaries, and telling people about quitting the CCP and the persecution.
