Amid the Joyful Noise of Firecrackers, People in China Quit the CCP

August 24, 2011 |  

(Clearwisdom.net) When the news agencies around the world reported that former head of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Jiang Zemin had died (or was dying or brain-dead), many people in China began celebrating by setting off firecrackers. The heinous and unforgivable crimes that Jiang has committed are too numerous to record, and people rejoiced at the news of his death. The following are a few such stories.

Celebrating Jiang’s Death by Setting Off Firecrackers

A large fair took place on August 4, 2011. Practitioners from my Fa-study group went there at 8:00 a.m. As we were getting ready to set off firecrackers, many passers-by gathered around us and asked what the occasion was. A practitioner said, “Jiang Zemin has died. We are celebrating and setting off firecrackers.” A passerby said, “Let me set off firecrackers.” Some people said, “Marvelous! It is wonderful that Jiang has died.” Many people applauded and cheered while listening to the sound of firecrackers going off.

Taking this opportunity, practitioners told the people the truth about Falun Gong. All of those present quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations.

I posted the article “A Time for Fireworks and Celebration” from the Minghui/Clearwisdom website on the streets one evening, and the following day I set off firecrackers in my community at around 7:30 a.m. Hearing the sound, many neighbors came out and asked what the occasion was.

When they learned that Jiang might have died, some said, “This thug has committed countless heinous crimes against the country and people.” Others said, “All those in the CCP are scoundrels.” I said to a neighbor, “I know you are a member of the CCP. Why do you still stay with this evil Party? Let me help you quit the CCP.” She quickly replied, “Wonderful! Please, I have wanted to quit the CCP long ago.” She quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations using her real name.

I went out to clarify the truth about Falun Gong on August 3, 2011. Many people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations after learning the truth, and asked me for Falun Gong informational materials. When I told the fact to a group of people, the materials I had brought were quickly distributed. Unfortunately, some of the people did not receive any materials.

When I noticed their disappointment, I took out my firecrackers and said, “I’m sorry I didn’t bring enough materials, but don’t worry, I have some firecrackers for you to set off.” I then explained the significance of setting off firecrackers and handed the firecrackers to them. Everyone was very happy and set off firecrackers.

Before this, I encountered six people, who were fond of reading our truth-clarifying materials. They gathered around me and eagerly asked for more materials. Quite a few passers-by were attracted by our group and stopped to find out what was going on. Someone, who hadn’t heard the truth yet, gasped in admiration upon seeing that Falun Gong was really popular.

When I handed a copy of materials to an elderly man, he said happily, “I’ll read it. Also, I want to remind you to be careful about the CCP’s police officers. Be sure to pay attention to your safety.” I was moved by his concern and replied, “Don’t worry. I’ll be alright. Thank you for your concern.”

Even if your flesh bodies and souls should perish, the flowing of the rivers will not stop”
By a Falun Dafa practitioner from Beijing

Some people in Beijing set off firecrackers together with practitioners in order to celebrate the news of Jiang’s brain death.

Someone said happily that he would celebrate again with champagne after Jiang was snuffed out completely. Everybody then started to enumerate Jiang’s heinous crimes, and planed to write a couplet. We were thinking of reciting the poem by Du Fu, a prominent Chinese poet of the Tang Dynasty, “Even if your bodies and names should perish, the flowing of the rivers will not stop."

A practitioner advised that we should change two characters in this poem, to make the description more appropriate for Jiang and the CCP. Thus it became “Even if your flesh bodies and souls should perish, the flowing of the rivers will not stop,” meaning that even though Jiang and the CCP have become extinct in terms of both body and soul, the universe will still run as usual and will last forever.
