In spite of its importance as a historical site the Chinese government has enacted a plan to raze 85\% of the old city in an attempt to reportedly move Uighur residents from their ancient homes to safer earthquake resistant homes. Two-thirds of the city has already been destroyed.
We, the undersigned, appeal for the public distribution of a plan to preserve and protect what remains of Kashgar and the Uighur culture This plan should focus on the further study of the historical old town and protect both tangible and intangible cultural heritage. Most importantly, this plan should be made available to the public, for scrutiny and encouragement.
Thank you for your support.
