新西兰style——用跑步抗议暴力

2016-03-29 疯果新西兰



话说,最近奥克兰有些不消停,一周之内,连续发生了两起中国留学生遭遇暴力袭击的事件。这些袭击的目的都是为了抢夺留学生的财物,手段非常的恶劣,三名留学生都遭到长时间的暴打。他们不仅受了皮肉之苦,更在精神上遭受很大的打击——离家千里求学,谁会想到有这样的遭遇?


很明显,虽然华人不是这类暴力袭击的唯一受害群体,但是已经是高发群体了。除了报警之外,我们还需要其它的手段,让华人都重视起自己的安全,同时也要让其它族群的、厌恶暴力的新西兰人听到来自华人社团的声音。


一位叫Redd的华人朋友为此站了出来,发起一场夜跑活动。全文如下:

My name is Redd. I work at a sports shop on Dominion Road in Auckland. 

As you probably know, for some reason Dominion Road seems to be a hotspot of crimes. Innocent people got robbed and assaulted for many time in the past; cars got broken very often.

In the place I work, we have caught shoplifters for many times. Sometime I feel a little bit vulnerable and helpless as a Kiwi Asian. Because it seems that Asian community has been always targeted by criminals.

Recently there has been a few of brutal assaults happened near Albert Park in Auckland CBD. Young Asians students have been beaten up and robbed by gangs. They are severely injured. I just realised there are more vulnerable people need help.

I usually organise running in the Asian community every Friday. So I thought for me the easiest way to speak up and tell the society that "We are strong and ready to stand up against any crimes; however we need more help from a vaster community, the police, government and media."

So on Friday 01April2016, at 8:00PM, I am going to run 5km from Dominion Road to Albert Park. To complete this campaign I need your support, join me and Run to Build a Safer and Better Community.

THIS IS NOT A PROTEST. WE RUN TO SPEAK UP!!!

Join me to start the 5km running and walking at 8:00pm on 01April2016 from Dominion Road and finish at Albert Park. facebook.com/rascnz


简单说,就是“我们要通过跑步,告诉社会,我们会直面犯罪行为;同时,也借此争取更广泛的支持。。。4月1日晚八点,从Dominion路出发,跑或者走5km到达Albert Park。”


是的,跑步不是一个能够根除暴力犯罪的行为,也不是一个有效震慑那些无赖流氓的行为,但是,这是一个实际的行动,付诸实施了,就有可能产生一些我们希望发生的变化。所以,4月1日晚八点,一起跑起来吧!
