Citizens To Mark Anniversary at Chinese Government Theme Park
For Immediate Release:
Citizens Against Communist Chinese Propaganda will commemorate the
51st anniversary of the Chinese Communist takeover of Eastern
Turkestan at the main gate of Florida Splendid China beginning at
noon on the 14th of October 2000.
This will be the 37th demonstration staged in front of the Chinese
government owned and operated theme park in Kissimmee, Florida that
improperly displays Eastern Turkestani, Mongolian, and Tibetan
exhibits. CACCP has attempted to communicate with the management of
Florida Splendid China since the park's opening in December 1993 and
all correspondence has gone unanswered.
Recent reports in the media have noted the aborted sale of the
Chinese government holdings in Central Florida and the subsequent
lawsuit. CACCP remains committed to continued efforts for either the
removal or re-labeling of the exhibit signs (in accordance with the
wishes of interested parties), no matter who owns the land or
controls Florida Splendid China.
Jack Churchward, Coordinator
Citizens Against Communist Chinese Propaganda
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 Abakh 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.
