This article relates the experiences of three people in Beijing who were unsuccessfully persuaded to attend party activities to "Preserve the Advanced Nature of Party Members."
The first is a retired Senior Bureau Chief from the Beijing City government. After he read the Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party1, he stopped participating in the evil party's activities and stopped paying the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) membership dues. When the campaign to "Preserve the Advanced Nature of Party Members" began, he didn't participate in that, either. The leader of the party group went to his home to persuade him to attend. He said, "I strove my whole life for the party, but I was nearly tortured to death in the Great Cultural Revolution. Look how bad the country has become because of the party. Don't you know that a lot of people have withdrawn from the CCP? Is there any use in 'Preserving the Advanced Nature of Party Members?'"
The party group leader was speechless. After a while, he said, "All right, will you pay your party membership dues?"
The Senior Bureau Chief said, "Many people don't pay the dues anymore, and neither will I."
The party group leader still insisted, "I know you're not rich, but since I came here from so far away, would you at least pay five yuan?"
Finally the Senior Bureau Chief agreed to pay, but told the party group leader, "Okay, here's the five yuan. Take it to finish your task, but please don't come here again. Even if you do, I won't pay dues again." That was the end of "Preserving the Advanced Nature of Party Members."
The second person is a cadre member from the Beijing State Affair Administrative Bureau. After the campaign to "Preserve the Advanced Nature of Party Members" began, the cadre told everyone she met, "Never join the party. Even party members are required to attend the "Preserving the Advanced Nature of Party Members" activities. Everyone knows it's just a formality, but they have to go anyway. Members have to listen to the report and then they copy each other's notes. After going through the process, the party members are certified as having "advanced nature." When we had time to chat, everyone wondered how long the communist party would be able to remain in power. It's a well known fact that the communist party is extremely corrupt at high levels."
When someone gave her a flyer with The Epoch Times announcement of five million people withdrawing from the CCP, she told the person, "Could you please publish my withdrawal announcement too? I'm also withdrawing from the CCP."
All the party members in the Beijing State Affairs Administrative Bureau who participated in the "Preserving the Advanced Nature of Party Members" activities have withdrawn from the CCP.
The third person is a laid-off employee of the Beijing Capital Iron and Steel Corporation. In recent years, just like other state-owned corporations, the Beijing Capital Iron and Steel Corporation laid off a lot of employees. The laid-off employees complained a lot. When the "Preserving the Advanced Nature" activities started, the officials didn't dare to meet with the party members who'd been laid off. They simply let the staff summon these party members to the office, take a book and sign their names, and they'd be considered qualified. Many party members refused to take the book. Those who refused to take the book were told that 200 yuan would be deducted from their November wages. The third person is one of them. He went to the office to ask for the deducted wages. A staff member brought a book and said, "Please take the book home to study."
He said, "Is this the so-called "Preserving the Advanced Nature?" The communist party's corrupt officials made a mess of the Beijing Capital Iron and Steel Corporation. The steel worker's wages used to be the highest, but now their wages are less than half of the average Beijing worker's wages. Our senior steel workers, who've always made great contributions to Beijing Capital Iron and Steel Corporation, were laid off even though they were less than 50 years old. Each month they only give us a few hundred yuan and they call it 'inner laid off.'"
The staff member said, "That's right."
The laid-off employee said, "Don't you know that right now six million people have withdrawn from the CCP?"
The staff member said, "Yes, I know."
"Since you already know, why do you still waste time with the "Preserving the Advanced Nature" campaign? Please give my money back." Finally the staff member returned the 200 yuan deducted from his wages.
Right now, at most of the offices in Beijing, the evil party fails to collect party membership dues. They've had to deduct it from people's wages. More and more people are becoming aware of the evil within the party, and more and more people are withdrawing from the CCP. The day of the evil party's downfall is not far off.
1. 1. Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party: Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party is a series of essays published in late 2004 that reveal the true nature of the Communist Party. The Nine Commentaries have led millions of people to renounce their membership in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and come to gain a clearer understanding about the wrongful persecution against Falun Gong. "A book that has shocked all Chinese around the world. A book that is disintegrating the Communist Party." http://ninecommentaries.com
