Above: Toronto rally in support of the now-31-million-strong Chinese who quit the Communist Party. Rallies like it were held across Canada as well.
Rallies were held in five Canadian cities this past month to support the 30 million Chinese people who have now renounced their affiliations with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
The massive wave of party withdrawals was initiated in late 2004 when The Epoch Times published its hard-hitting editorial series, Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party.
The Nine Commentaries documents the history of the Chinese Communist party, exposing the crimes it committed in grasping and then holding onto power in China over the last 60 years.
The book struck a deep cord with Chinese around the world and has spurred some high level CCP officials, CCP consular officials, police officers and ordinary citizens to defect from China, as well as spawn the enormous movement of party withdrawals.
