Joint Statement of the Chinese Community in Australia on Protest against Maoist Concert
It is reported that LB Homes Group, a property development company and the International Cultural Exchange Association Australia, an tourism and entertainment company will host a Concert of “Glory and Dream” in Commemoration of the 40th Anniversary of the death of Mao Zedong at Sydney Town Hall on September 6 and at Melbourne Town Hall on September 9, 2016 respectively.
Mao Zedong (also known as Mao Tse-tung) was one of top three mass murderers alongside Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin in the 20th century, and he was a tyrant who killed more innocent people than Hitler and Stalin combined. According to the declassified files of the Chinese Government and open data sources, as a criminal against humanity Mao practiced a genocide policy during his reign which led to the murder of at least 42,130,000 innocent lives including：
over 2 million landlords slaughtered in the Land Reform Movement in the period from 1950 to 1952;
over 710,000 “counterrevolutionaries”(mainly junior officials of the former government and military of the Republic of China) in the period from 1950 to 1953;
36 million to 45 million civilians died of man-made famine during the Great Leap Forward from 1958 to 1961;
3,420,000 (or 20 million, as disclosed by General YE Jieying, a late Marshal of the PLA according to one source) persecuted to death during the Cultural Revolution from 1966 to 1976.
According to Wikipedia, Hitler had murdered 11 million to 17 million German civilians, including 6 million Jewish people. Stalin had killed about 15 million lives during his reign. With enormous support from Mao, Pol Pot had slaughtered 1 million to 3 million Khmer people as well.
Multiculturalism in Australia should not be abused to praise criminals against humanity and promote political extremism. What Mao had brought to the Chinese and the world was his massive appalling crimes and a nightmare of century. Any praise for Mao the tyrant is against universal values of the humankind and an insult to the modern civilization. The fascist aesthetics under disguise of art and culture is the shameless means of the brainwash propaganda and a way of exporting the totalitarian culture of the Chinese Communist Party, which is a full contempt and challenge to the fundamental values of Australia.
Such an ideological infiltration has brought in cold blood and hatred, and it is constantly tearing the heart of senior Chinese Australians of generations who have experienced Mao’s cruel persecutions, in the meanwhile eroding the mainstream Australian values such as freedom, equality, peace and compassion.
In view of the facts stated above, we declare
I. to condemn any campaign of praising Mao on the land of Australia which may be launched by any individual and groups, and to condemn Peter H T Zhu, Chairman of LB Homes Group and Yuan Ye, President of International Cultural Exchange Association Australia for their sponsoring and hosting of a concert praising Mao the tyrant.
II. to firmly urge the Council of the City of Sydney and the Council of the City of Melbourne to terminate the relevant property lease agreements, for the government owned property should not be used for promoting evils and inhumanity.

To the Melbourne Lord Mayor Robert Doyle and fellow Melbourne City Councillors
We are deeply concerned about a concert in tribute to Mao Zedong (Mao Tse-tung), to be held at the Melbourne Town Hall on 9 September 2016.
Mao was the head of the Chinese Communist Party. His regime and legacy is controversial among the Chinese people. This sentiment is also reflected in the Australian-Chinese community. More and more people see him as one of the most cold blooded dictators in human history, surpassing the cruelty of Hitler in Germany, Stalin in Russia and Pol Pot in Cambodia. In actual fact, large amounts of historical evidence show that Mao was personally responsible for massive tortures and persecutions resulting in the unnatural deaths of over 70 million Chinese people. He destroyed Chinese people's traditional culture; he persecuted all religious believers; he torn down temples and monasteries; he banned all forms of democracy and social freedom. Maoism instigates violence and hate against Western laws and society. Mao and his crimes against humanity contravenes everything that Australian Values stand for.
Australia is NOT the place for publicising or glorifying Mao. As tax-payers of this great country, we cannot tolerate tributes to a violent dictator at a Council venue - the Melbourne Town Hall. Melbourne City Council should not be associated with a tyrant who most people consider as the biggest mass murderer in history.
Despite Australia being a multicultural country with respect for freedom of speech, this freedom must be exercised under our Australian Values.
We call upon the Melbourne City Council to:
1. Immediately terminate the agreement for the concert to be held at Melbourne Town Hall on 9 September 2016.
2. Ensure no concerts glorifying Mao are held at any Council venues within the Melbourne City Council
