Dear Mister Ma,
To celebrate the 37th anniversary of the Tibetan Uprising, we will be protesting at the entrance to your facility, Florida Splendid China. We wish to call attention to the plight of the Tibetan, Mongolian, and Uighur peoples that have been under the occupation of the People's Liberation Army forces and the Chinese Communist Party and how some of the exhibits in the theme park portray these peoples as 'Chinese'. The Potala Palace was built by Tibetans, as was the Tomb of Apak Hoja and the Id Kah Mosque built by the Uighur people. The identification of these structures as 'Chinese' is insulting and an attempt to whitewash history.
We wish to speak with you at your earliest convenience to discuss the removal or relabelling of these replicas.
Thank you for your time and attention,
Citizens Against Communist Chinese Propaganda
