Li Jun said that all the people involved in the production of the film were volunteers. Not only did they not take a penny, they also contributed money, energy, and time, which is very admirable.
He said that the interview material for this documentary lasted more than 50 hours. In the end, many exciting story clips of volunteers who quit the Communist Party of China were reluctantly deleted, reducing it to 2 hours and 9 minutes. There was feedback from the audience at the scene that the film was too shocking and they had not seen enough. They felt that the deleted scenes also contained a lot of essence, so they looked forward to a longer version.
“Regarding the stories of these volunteers who quit the Communist Party of China, I feel that as a documentary producer, I have the responsibility to present this period of history. If one day China moves towards democracy and freedom, we should say thank you to these volunteers and we will definitely remember this. A piece of history.” He said solemnly.
Li Jun once personally experienced a touching story. When he quit the CCP to a friend, his friend felt as if his soul had been liberated and was very excited. Many volunteers who quit the Communist Party of China who were interviewed also said that when people truly saw the CCP and quit the CCP, many people were very moved. Thousands of people cried with the volunteers who quit the Communist Party of China.
“Those of us who grew up within the CCP system have all sworn a vicious oath to the Communist Party, dedicated our lives to it, and were willing to sacrifice everything for it. No political party in history has been so vicious. Do we still want to keep this party? Poisonous oath?” he asked.
“The essence of quitting the CCP is to erase the poisonous oath and become a clean Chinese. The movement to withdraw from the CCP is a spiritual awakening movement for the Chinese people.” He advocated that everyone should erase the poisonous oath and all people to withdraw from the CCP.
Democracy activists: Everyone quits the CCP and volunteers
Fang Zheng, president of the China Democracy Education Foundation, was very moved after watching the event. He expressed deep respect for Falun Gong practitioners, especially volunteers who quit the Communist Party of China. “They are so worthy of respect, and their dedication is so admirable.”
After the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” was published in November 2004, it was quickly distributed around the world and triggered a “tide to withdraw from the Communist Party of China and the Communist Party of China” at home and abroad.
He praised the “Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party” for its great influence on him. In May 2005, he publicly announced his real-name resignation from the CCP in the Epoch Times newspaper. He was deeply proud of this.
He agreed with Director Li Jun that the Three Quit Movement was an awakening movement for the whole people. “China’s future move toward democracy and freedom and the final rejuvenation of the Chinese nation require a real enlightenment movement and a nationwide awakening. I believe that the Three Quit Movement was an awakening movement. start”.
He appealed to everyone at the scene to support the movement and to volunteer as a volunteer.
Feng Congde, a famous Chinese democracy activist, said: We must understand which country we love? “We don’t want to be the descendants of Marxism-Leninism, but the sons and daughters of China.” In fact, what we love is the “cultured China” mentioned in the film. We must recognize the evil specter of the CCP and become upright sons and daughters of China.
“In fact, the Communist Party is more evil than the Nazis and Hitler, but the West has not fully realized this. The large Western companies and Western political parties that support the CCP should wake up.”

He said that a hundred years later, when all mankind no longer has communism, we will look back and see that “a group of people who were the first to awaken in the Chinese nation took this nation with the longest and most ancient culture and history to bid farewell to the Communist Party and Bid farewell to communism, and thus use their actions to lead the entire world and walk out of the era of communism. This is what we saw in this movie, it is very great and magnificent!”

Zhang Muzhi believes that Falun Gong practitioners are extraordinary, and the only media that can truly speak out for overseas Chinese is the media founded by Falun Gong practitioners.
He gave a very simple example: before the Russian-Ukrainian war broke out, in order to paralyze the Ukrainian government and cooperate with Russia’s attack on Ukraine, the Communist Party had an unexpected effect. It told the Chinese in Ukraine not to move, that there would be no war, and that there was no need to prepare in advance. , “You will find that in the eyes of the Communist Party, the lives of overseas Chinese are actually their political bargaining chips and can be abandoned at any time. Do you think the Communist Party will speak out for the interests of our overseas Chinese?”
He said that he was not a Falun Gong practitioner, but for the safety of his property and life, he would learn from the stories and accumulated experiences of Falun Gong practitioners. He also called on everyone to put aside their prejudices and help Falun Gong. In fact, he was also safeguarding the interests of overseas Chinese themselves.
