Callie Attacks on Arab-Americans Must Stop! (101* d) RE: ATTACKS ON ARAB-AMERICANS MUST STOP! 16 Sep 01


The only way to do it is to be vocal in our own dealings with people in a day to day situation. There's no point tolerating ignorance on such matters for the sake of keeping the peace (ha! sic!).

There's fresh anti-Arab graffiti on my local bus-shelter. i have not ever seen this in my area before. If it isn't washed off by tomorrow night when i drive home from work I'm going to spray over it myself.

We have experienced similar ignorant acts in Australia. The last time Indonesia sent troops into East Timor, a local Indonesian Australian performer who had big public gigs lined up was told that his gigs had been cancelled because the organisers did not want to be seen to be taking sides with Indonesia. What a stupid thing to do - this particular performer has been very active in human rights and Timor freedom issues.
