We, representatives of Tibet, Eastern Turkestan, and Southern (Inner) Mongolia peoples who are suffering under the repression of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) are gathering today to demonstrate before the Chinese government owned and operated theme park known as Florida Splendid China in Kissimmee, Florida.
We come here in order to protest the Chinese occupation of Eastern Turkestan, Southern Mongolia, and Tibet, which were never parts of China.
We come here to accuse the People's Republic of China (PRC) and CCP of carrying out the policy of genocide against the nations of Southern Mongolia, Tibet, and Eastern Turkestan during the last 50 years of their illegal occupation. Estimates place the victims of these genocidal policies at 1.2 million Tibetans, 1.0 million Eastern Turkestanis, and 1.0 million Southern Mongolians over the past fifty years. Millions of Eastern Turkestanis, Southern Mongolians, and Tibetans have been tortured, maimed, and imprisoned by the PRC and CCP. These policies also continue the annihilation of the languages, culture, and religions of Southern Mongolia, Tibet, and Eastern Turkestan.
We come here to accuse the PRC and CCP of moving millions of Han Chinese people into Tibet, Eastern Turkestan, and Southern Mongolia in order to liquidate the non-Chinese nations, forcing their peoples to become Chinese. This is the forced genocide and assimilation of tens of millions of people.
We, the representatives of Eastern Turkestan, Southern Mongolia, and Tibet express our sorrow that the United States government has allowed the PRC to establish the so-called 'Splendid China' theme park in Kissimmee, Florida.
We consider that the Florida Splendid China theme park is insulting and offensive and we are outraged that this great fraud continues the myth that Southern Mongolia, Tibet, and Eastern Turkestan are parts of China.
The 'Mausoleum of Genghis Khan' exhibit should be removed immediately. Genghis Khan was a King of independent Mongolia and never was a King of China ! We are categorically protesting the inclusion of this exhibit !
The 'Potala Palace' exhibit should be removed immediately. The Grand Potala Palace was the seat of government and home to the Dalai Lama of Tibet, NOT of China ! We are categorically protesting the inclusion of this exhibit !
The 'Id Gah Mosque' exhibit should be removed immediately. The repressive policies that control religion should not be hidden by the inclusion of an Eastern Turkestani religious icon. We are categorically protesting the inclusion of this exhibit !
The 'Tomb of Appak Hoja' exhibit (falsely given the Chinese name of 'Tomb of Xiang Fei' in the theme park) should be removed immediately. This cultural icon contains the remains of Eastern Turkestanis, NOT Chinese. We are categorically protesting the inclusion of this exhibit !
Now, we the representatives of Tibet, Eastern Turkestan and Southern Mongolia call on the US government to completely close this theme park which is serving to block the future freedom of America by continuing the propaganda of a cruel, heartless, and merciless Chinese government. Today, they lie about Eastern Turkestan, Southern Mongolia, and Tibet, maybe in the future they will also lie about independent Mongolia (Outer Mongolia), Siberia, and even America.
We call on the peoples of the world with kind hearts to press for economic sanctions against the People's Republic of China until it recognizes the independence of Southern Mongolia, Tibet, and Eastern Turkestan, cleans up the stocks of nuclear waste that poison our people and lands and release all prisoners of consciousness that are in the jails, including:
We also call on measures to stop the Chinese mass immigration into Tibet, Eastern Turkestan and Southern Mongolia.
Lastly, we call on the peoples of Eastern Turkestan, Southern Mongolia, Tibet and those that care about these occupied lands to quickly WAKE UP to the threat which threatens to annihilate our language, culture, religion, and people.
For Southern Mongolia: M. Altanbat, Inner Mongolian People's Party
