Statement on race hate leaflets


Statement from Ernest Wong MLC

NSW Labor strongly condemns a racist leaflet campaign targeting Chinese Australians.

There is no place in contemporary Australia for xenophobic and hateful campaigns.

Modern Australia’s vibrant multicultural society welcomes people from around the world.

The Chinese community has contributed to the success of NSW for more than 160 years, with many Chinese people among the great waves of migration to the colony of NSW in the 19th Century.

Today Chinese Australians make an enormous contribution to our state in a diverse range of fields, including expanding relations between NSW and China – our state’s number one trading partner.

NSW Labor will monitor developments regarding this matter and will propose measures if necessary to prevent further racist campaigns.
