Dear Comrade Chun,
We hope that the past year in our fair state has been kind to you and your family and that you have adjusted to the new climate.
We are writing to inform you of an action being held at Splendid China on Saturday, August 31st, 2002. The date commemorates the 53rd anniversary of the mysterious plane crash that prematurely ended the lives of the East Turkestan Republic representatives on their way to negotiate in Beijing on August 28, 1949. In addition, due to the heightened angry rhetoric concerning our friends in Taiwan and their right to self-determination, we will also voice our opposition to the belligerent and hostile pronouncements from the Chinese military and government. As purveyors of Communist Chinese propaganda and the representatives of the State Council here in Florida, it is only natural that your facility be targeted for this event.
We will hold a legal, peaceful demonstration at the main gate of your facility beginning at 12 noon on August 31st. Also, some members will be making legal, peaceful statements in front of the exhibits and/or in the Suzhou Gardens.
Please, let there be no misunderstandings. We have repeatedly attempted to correspond with previous managers and officers controlling Florida Splendid China to simply ask to talk about five (5) exhibits and the signs in front of them. To date, our correspondence has gone unanswered. Our only recourse has been to use our legal rights to voice our opinions and peaceably gather in front of your facility on an occasional basis to bring further attention to our concerns. At such time that you (or your representative) would meet with a delegation of concerned citizens to discuss these issues in substantial terms, we will cease and desist from further actions. However, until that time, we will maintain our activities.
The planned activity on August 31st will represent the 49th action at Florida Splendid China since opening in December 1993. We plan to return again this December to commemorate the 9th anniversary of your grand opening, perhaps this will be action number 50 or 51.
Thank you for your time and attention and have a great day,
Have a nice day,

Jack Churchward
