华人、亚裔加拿大人和魁省社区成员发表联合声明反对仇恨, 反对法西斯主义

来源:贴心姐妹网   更新:2018-02-23 13:04:37   作者:华工网络,魁北克进步华人,亚裔加拿大劳工

 

 
加拿大华人、亚裔加拿大人和魁省的团体和社区成员都站出来反对加剧伊斯兰恐惧症(仇视伊斯兰教),并呼吁所有加拿大人为建立公正和包容的社会而奋斗,加拿大欢迎所有人,不论他们的信仰、种族和移民身分如何。

特别是,我们对一些加拿大华人最近的示威感到震惊, 他们呼吁总理辞职, 并要向加拿大华人社区道歉,因为他支持加拿大穆斯林社区。引发这些示威活动的起因是,最近的媒体报导称, 一名戴头巾的十一岁女孩在多伦多被一名「亚裔男子」袭击。而多伦多警方后来证实袭击事件并没有发生。

我们非常担心,我们社区内有些人抓住这样的时机,以实现他们的政治目的,而这样做,会更加诋毁和污辱在加拿大的穆斯林 (其中许多人是亚裔)。

我们还对2018年2月18日在渥太华举行的反穆斯林示威期间的仇外言论感到震惊。这些言论把难民等同于恐怖分子,把呼吁反伊斯兰恐惧症(反仇视伊斯兰教)的行动,歪曲为促进「不平等」,以及试图在种族化少数群体之间製造分裂和等级制度。更可耻的是,这些示威活动是在魁北克市郊区圣佛伊清真寺六名穆斯林男子遭屠杀一周年纪念之时举行的。让我们不要再增加穆斯林加拿大人的痛苦,他们已经正在忍受那些煽动对他们社区的恐惧,毫无根据的指责所带来的痛苦。

我们想提醒所有加拿大人,包括在加拿大和魁北克我们华人社区的成员,任何针对一个边缘化群体的攻击都是对我们所有人的攻击。

不久以前, 与今天的穆斯林加拿大人相似,加拿大华人被认为是社会贱民,标籤为「黄祸」 ,加拿大华人遭受62年的法定种族主义和移民禁令。从华人人头税与排华法中吸取到的教训是,通过针对一群人的立法,政府在更大的社会中为所有人创造了仇恨的气氛。 

加拿大的少数族裔群体应该团结起来,争取一个更加富有同情心和平等的社会,而不是添加仇恨、种族主义和法西斯主义。

身为加拿大华人和魁北克人,我们谴责法西斯主义者和极右团体的一切企图,拉拢我们社区的成员加入他们的仇恨、仇外心理和伊斯兰恐惧症(仇视伊斯兰教)运动。我们与穆斯林社区成员站在一起;我们与寻求庇护者站在一起;我们与原住民站在一起;我们毫无保留地坚决谴责对任何种族化团体的任何形式的仇恨和不容忍行为。

Statement against Hate and Fascism

February 20, 2018

Chinese Canadian, Asian Canadian, and Chinese Québec groups are concerned about recent demonstrations by some Chinese Canadians protesting against what they perceive to be anti-Chinese sentiment resulting from the falsely reported attack on an eleven-year-old girl wearing a hijab in Toronto in early January. Such individuals have zeroed in on the girl’s identification of an “Asian man” as the assailant and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s support of her and Muslim Canadians, in general, as evidence of both Trudeau’s and Muslims’ racism against the Chinese community, despite the fact that the “Asian man” was not specifically identified as Chinese, that no motives for the false report have been stated, or that the Prime Minister made no mention of the Chinese community.

We believe that this is a dangerous and unjustifiable road that these particular Chinese Canadians are choosing to go down, as they construe facts from this event in such a way so as to create a controversy where none actually exists. There is a potential for great harm in choosing to adopt such a false perspective, as it can only lead to further stigmatisation of Muslims in Canada (some of whom have Asian origins) and the expansion of Islamophobic ideas.

We would like to remind all members of our own Chinese communities here in Canada and in Quebec that any attack against one minoritized and marginalized group is an attack against us all. We are alarmed by the xenophobic speeches given during the demonstration in Ottawa on February 18, 2018, equating refugees with terrorists, twisting calls for anti-islamophobic action as promoting “inequality,” and attempting to create divisions and hierarchies among racialised minorities. It is shameful that these demonstrations have come on the heels of the first anniversary of the massacre of six Muslim men at the mosque in the Quebec City suburb of Sainte-Foy. Let us not add to the burden of pain of the Muslim community by needlessly inventing a problem to protest based on groundless fears and non-existent evidence.

It is not so long ago that we were in their shoes, facing immigration bans, racist stereotypes, and false accusations of unsavoury behaviour. One lesson learned from the Head Tax and Chinese Exclusion Act is that by targeting legislation against one group of people, the government creates a hateful atmosphere in the larger society. Racialized communities should unite and use the virtues of empathy and solidarity in the fight against the evils of hate and fascism.

As Chinese Canadians and Quebeckers, we denounce all attempts by fascist and far right groups to co-opt members of our communities into their campaign of hate, xenophobia, and, especially, Islamophobia. We stand with our Muslim community members, we stand with asylum seekers, we stand with the First Nations, and we categorically refuse
to participate in any form of hate and racism against ANY racialised group.
