On April 27, Chinese-Australians will hold a protest against racial discrimination in their homes
According to reports, the 2020 Online Protest Against Racial Discrimination will officially kick off on 26th April 2020. This event has created a new chapter regarding anti-racism for Chinese-Australians.
The march will be carried out online due to epidemic control. The event is a non-governmental Chinese-Australian online web platform attended by hundreds of Chinese-Australian netizens, including those who have experienced racial discrimination.
At present, racial discrimination is rampant in Australia. Many officials, most notably Victorian state Premier Daniel Andrews have issued appeals to stop any forms of racial discrimination. As a target of racism, Chinese-Australians have responded positively and have appealed to the government and media to stop it.
In this protest, Chinese-Australians say no to discrimination, make clear their opposition and show solidarity with the rest of Australian society. The event hopes to attract the attention of mainstream society and let all Australians hear the voice of the Chinese community.
Posters of online slogans include:
Photo: Racism still continues to occur, cars have been burned, people beaten on the streets, glass has been smashed and people have been receiving threatening mail in letterboxes.
Photo: 16 highly regarded Chinese-Australians have signed a joint petition calling for an end to racial discrimination.
