Anti-Asian sentiment and hate crimes against Asians in the U.S. have been increasing since the beginning of the pandemic. This violence is directly linked with the U.S’s current  engagement in multi-domain “hybrid warfare” with China. The only way to stop violence against Asians domestically is to stop the U.S’s aggression and hybrid war on China.  China is not our enemy!

 

Allison Lau  is the China Is Not Our Enemy  campaign coordinator at CODEPINK. She is also the Director of Operations at Queer Toronto  Literary Magazine. Allison earned a Bachelors degree from McGill University, and a Masters in International Development from the Global Development Institute at the University of Manchester.

WEEKLY VIGIL

Every Saturday from 10-11 a.m. on the Greenfield Common

According to a member of RJR’s coordinating committee, “Back in the last week of May 2020 when George Floyd was killed, Racial Justice Rising vigiled 5 times.  It was clear that this was not going to be pushed under the rug and that the movement we’ve all been longing for was finally happening. RJR sent out the message that we were going to be out there every Saturday from 10am to 11am on the Greenfield Common to keep the presence alive.”
