The Asian Australian Alliance report showing increased racist abuse and vilification of people from a wide range of Asian backgrounds is disturbing and against all principles of ‘a fair go’, with increased racial slurs/name calling, physical intimidation, threats and being spat at, particularly in public places like the street, shops and public transport: HERE. The Alliance is still taking reports to monitor incidents: HERE.
The report reminds us that we all need to speak out against discrimination, abuse and vilification, and be allies for those victimised. In Parliament, I’ve restated questions calling for government action to prevent discrimination and vilification: HERE. You can see information about NSW laws and support services at: HERE.
