Queensland’s multicultural communities are facing many challenges at this time and we are seeing a tremendous amount of dedication and hard work being done by and for community members to support each other.
Unfortunately we have also seen a surge in racist remarks and attacks, especially directed towards community members with Chinese and other Asian backgrounds. We have previously released a statement condemning these actions and we hope that the Government takes action on this important issue. We also hope to see as many community members as possible speak out against racism wherever they see it and make it known that such deplorable actions should not be tolerated.
We further hope that you join us in signing the following two petitions that seek Government action now and that you share these among your networks.
Click here for Chinese Community Council of Australia’s (CCCA) petition to Stamp out racism in Australia.
Click here for Chinese Australian Forum’s petition to Denounce racist attacks on Asian-Australians. #UnityOverFear during Covid-19.
As always please do not hesitate to contact me and I wish you and your family the very best of health and happiness.
