New York State Assemblyman Jarett Gandolfo is praising the global Tuidang Movement of more than 400 million people who have left the Chinese Communist Party, calling it "one of the most peaceful and important initiatives in human civilization."

In a Sept. 15 citation, Gandolfo, a Republican, recognized the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP for "coordinating the global movement to help Chinese people quit the CCP and its affiliated organizations and helping educate people around the world as to the criminal nature of communism," The Epoch Times reported

Another name for the movement is Tuidang, which means quit the Chinese Communist Party CCP, and is arguably the largest grassroots movement in human history, according to the Times. 

Gandolfo's citation reads, "Chinese people have lived through decades of mind control, brainwashing, and terror under the CCP. 

"In communist China, from childhood to middle school, high school, and university, a Chinese person may have joined and pledged allegiance to one or more of CCP's organizations, otherwise one may find oneself at risk of being excluded from the mainstream society. When they do they take this oath, it is not to China, but to the CCP."

The citation also notes that the Global Service Center for Quitting the CCP began in 2004 and that the organization has "distributed the Nine Commentaries" as it "helps educate people around the world as to the criminal nature of Communism."

The Times published "Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party" in November 2004, explaining that it is "an editorial series that provides a comprehensive look back at the CCP’s history and fully exposes its wickedness."
