Summary Translation: Star Net - Canada-based Chinese media Sept Days president Yin Ling said Chinese media outlets are calling on the Chinese community to be brave and fight against racial discrimination. Recently, the US has been experiencing a series of protests due to the death of a black American man, George Floyd. These protests have expanded internationally. With the outbreak of COVID-19, racial discrimination against Asian populations is more prevalent abroad. Many overseas Chinese media are hoping that they can encourage the Chinese community to speak up through reporting and following the George Floyd incident. Yin said: “Canada is a multicultural country and racism happens every now and then.” Since the COVID-19 outbreak, Asians are experiencing more unjust treatment, such as verbal abuse and twisting of the truth. Yin added: “When facing false information, the individual should respond immediately and try their best to explain.” Yin said overseas Chinese are used to remaining silent when they experience any incidents abroad. Yin is asking the overseas Chinese community to speak up and fight back, and is hoping this will inspire relevant legislation to be announced to protect the rights and interests of overseas Chinese.
