For Immediate Release:
Citizens Against Communist Chinese Propaganda announce a demonstration
Citizens Against Communist Chinese Propaganda announce a demonstration at the main gate of the Chinese government owned and operated propaganda theme park known as Florida Splendid China. The occasion commemorates the 52nd anniversary of the takeover of East Turkestan by the Chinese People's Liberation Army.
The event will promptly begin at 12 noon on Saturday, the 13th of October 2001. Attendees are requested to meet in the Formosa Gardens shopping center parking lot and walk to the main gate. If road construction along US 192 has been finished, then the demonstration will also target the thousands of motorists that pass by on their way to DisneyWorld. Please bring your flags, signs and banners.
This event will be the 44th in a continuing series of demonstrations and actions. Since the first action, interested individuals have written to Splendid China asking to be heard concerning the inclusion of certain exhibits that include the Potala Palace of His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet, the so-called Mausoleum of Genghis Khan and Mongolian Yurt exhibit, as well as the Tomb of Apak Hoja (mislabeled as the Tomb of Xiang Fei) and the Id Gah Mosque that represent East Turkestan. On a regular basis and prior to each action, the management of Splendid China has been sent correspondence that request a meeting at their convenience to discuss these issues. The theme park has yet to respond to a single letter, either by phone, fax or return letter. In response, CACCP was formed to organize and implement a multi-faceted campaign.
Citizens Against Communist Chinese Propaganda is a group of dedicated volunteers who are against the inclusion of 'minority' and religious exhibits at the Chinese Communist Party owned and operated Florida Splendid China theme park in Kissimmee, Florida.
Specifically, we are protesting the inclusion of the Potala Palace that was built by the Tibetan people and served as the home of successive Dalai Lamas since 1645,the Id Gah Mosque and Tomb of Apak Hoja which serve as cultural icons of the people of Eastern Turkestan and the Mausoleum of Genghis Khan and the Mongolian Yurt exhibit which attempt to add a Chinese name to the Southern Mongolian people.
