Message from TCA Chairman – Mr Erwin Pon:
On behalf of the TCA and Chinese Community we would like to thank you for all your support during the 25th to 29th March 2019, historic event. As you know our Chinese community went to the Equality court to fight against hate speech and racism against us and to fight for our rights, respect and dignity!
The inquiry is underway and our first witness has begun giving evidence. A large number of the respondents are ready to concede and confess to the hurt and harm their comments caused, yet we also have fierce opposition from some opponents with seemingly very deep pockets! This is posing a challenge, but we are not afraid as we have you! We will not allow them to use money to squash the dignity of the Chinese people.
This week showed us all how a United a community we are. We have had Chinese communities across South Africa participating and we have received messages of support from all over the world, from the USA to Europe, Canada to Australia and New Zealand! We are showing how strong a community we are! Too long we have been bullied, disrespected and have kept silent. But not this time! This is Our time! This is our chance. This is Your time!!
For us to continue this fight for our dignity, for your dignity and for the future dignity and respect of our children, we need your help!
Now is the time to show your support for the community. To make the voice of the community heard. To make your voice heard! To make history!
