For Immediate Release:
Citizens Against Communist Chinese Propaganda (CACCP) is a loose-knit
organization of individuals opposed to certain exhibits in the
Chinese government owned and operated propaganda theme park known as
Florida Splendid China. CACCP is an all-volunteer organization
that does not receive or accept donations from individuals or
organizations except for clearly
identified one-time only projects such as our conferences.
Previously, CACCP did solicit donations for our quarterly newsletter,
but the donations were not adequate to pay for copying and postage
fees. The last issue was sent out in February 1997 after eight issues.
CACCP is dedicated to peaceful, legal expressions of speech in
pursuit of our goals. CACCP believes in working within the framework
of the law and will not accept assistance or aid from organizations
whose goals are counter to those principles.
Furthermore, CACCP flatly refuses assistance or aid from any
organization or individual that espouses or promotes hatred or
intolerance in any form.
CACCP is opposed to violence or illegal means as an end to achieve
our goals. If CACCP becomes aware that either illegal or violent
activities are either planned or being planned, CACCP will notify law
enforcement authorities to distance ourselves from that behavior and
ensure that the perpetrators are either prevented from completing
their plans or ultimately prosecuted for their mischief.
Violent acts incite further violent acts, form barriers between
people, and devalue our human existence. As equal partners in the
future of humankind, we all share the responsibility (whether we
chose to accept it or not) to recognize and understand the shared
nature of our human existence, to build bridges between people, and
progress on a path to a brighter future for all humankind.
In taking this stand, CACCP has removed links to resources from our
web-site that call for confrontational action. CACCP does not take a
position on any issue, except for the inclusion of Tibetan,
Mongolian, Uyghur and religious exhibits at the Chinese government
owned and operated propaganda theme park known as Florida Splendid
China. CACCP will not use confrontation nor provide resources for
those tactics. Also removed were the frequencies for numerous
government agencies that have jurisdiction in the general area.
CACCP neither encourages nor discourages others to behave
differently. The members of CACCP are fortunate to live in a country
where freedom of speech is a legal mandate, and we are able to reveal
deceitful tactics and dishonest propaganda wherever they occur, and
fight openly and honestly for the principles of right and justice.
