(Minghui.org) It has been frequently reported that many Chinese people have quit the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), but very few have gone to the heart of the matter and answered the question, “Why do people need to quit the CCP?”

An article on the quitccp.org website said that the movement began soon after the publication of a series of articles titled Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.

The article said that the series "sparked a quiet but determined movement to free people’s hearts and minds from the culture of violence created by the Communist Party in China (CCP)."

Many involved in helping the Chinese people quit the CCP and its affiliates are Falun Gong practitioners.

Grassroots Efforts to Help Chinese People Quit the CCP

One Falun Gong practitioner, whose name is being withheld due to security reasons, has been healthy and happy since he began to practice Falun Gong in 1997.

He is grateful to Master Li Hongzhi, the founder of Falun Gong, and wanted to share how he tells people in China about Falun Gong and why they should quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations. Below is his personal account:

I am a mechanical engineer at a privately owned coal mine. I have many opportunities to clarify the truth about Falun Gong and quitting the CCP, because the turnover rate in the mining business is high.

One day I approached five mine workers who were taking a break and got right to the point. I asked them if they had heard of the quitting the movement to quit the CCP and that it would benefit them greatly. None of them had heard about it.

I told them that Falun Gong is widely practiced in many countries worldwide, but the CCP is the only regime that persecutes Falun Gong practitioners.

I said, "All monarchs and rulers in historical times that persecuted people of faith have met with karmic retribution and their empires were destroyed. The CCP will not be an exception. If you quit the Party and its affiliated organizations, you will no longer be associated with it when it falls."

Although none of them had joined the CCP itself, they had joined the Communist Youth League (for young people aged 14 to 28) or the Young Pioneers (for children below the age of 14). When these men understood that the Party has committed a major sin in persecuting people of faith, they gladly quit these organizations as they no longer wanted to be associated with the CCP.

Sincere Belief in the Goodness of Dafa Brings Protection

In China, people believe that wearing a charm or a talisman can help them escape harm, so I gave them a Dafa amulet when they asked for one.

I also told them that sincerely reciting "Falun Gong is good" could ease their minds and protect them. They took my advice and began to sincerely recite these words in their minds on their way to the coal mine and before they go into the mine.

Many people come to the mine on business. I speak to them about Falun Gong and about quitting the CCP. Most of them agree to quit the CCP and/or its affiliates.

Surviving Mine Accidents

Accidents and injuries are a frequent part of working in a mine. I have noticed that those who have decided to quit the Party survive accidents.

One day my manager and I went to the hospital to pay a mine worker's hospital expenses. He had been hit by falling rocks in a mine accident and was being examined for fractures. Fortunately, the X-ray showed that nothing was broken and he only sustained minor external injuries. He was one of those who had quit the Communist Youth League.

While I was at the hospital, I chatted with a few other mine workers who had sustained injuries. One worker who had a minor foot injury said, "I am glad I listened to your advice and quit the Communist Youth League. I believe that is the reason why I only had a minor injury during the accident. If I were still associated with the Communist Party, I might not be alive."
