May 30, 2020 – Rise of Anti-Asian Racism – 反亚裔种族主义的兴起

Rise of Anti-Asian Racism

Statement by Jim Karygiannis

 

I have recently been made aware of the growing number of racist incidence being face by members of the Canadian Asian community.

I have been told incidents ranging from a man being stabbed; to a young couple being physically assaulted; to an elderly individual being pushed so had he fell and sustained an injury; to a young person being subjected to racial slurs.

These actions are not acceptable in anywhere, let alone in Canada. We are a people who believe in equality, justice and tolerance. It is up to each one of us to speak up every time we see or hear racist actions or speech.

COVID-19 is causing all of us to be anxious but I strongly believe that we must work together to promote togetherness.

We must:

Respect our newcomer communities.

Accept our newcomer communities;

Celebrate our diversity; and,

Embrace our different cultures and traditions.

We are all part of the human RACE.

 

反亚裔种族主义的兴起

詹嘉礼声明

 

English Follows Below

我最近获悉,歧视加拿大亚裔群体的种族主义事件越来越多。

我被告知,有人被刺伤;有年轻夫妇被攻击; 有老人因被大力推倒而受伤; 还有年轻人受到种族诽谤。

 

这些行为在任何地方都是不能接受的,更何况在加拿大。 我们的人民相信平等、正义和包容。 每次看到或听到种族主义行为或言论时,我们每个人都应直言不讳地反击。

 

新冠疫情让我们所有人都感到焦虑,但我坚信,我们必须共同努力,促进团结。

 

我们必须

 

尊重我们的新移民社区;

接受我们的新移民社区;

庆祝我们的多元化;

并拥抱我们不同的文化和传统。

我们都肩负着人类共同进步的责任。
