On Saturday, March 27, demonstrations will take place across the country as part of a national day of action initiated by the ANSWER Coalition demanding an end to anti-Asian racist violence, an end to violence against women and end to white supremacy.

The ANSWER Coalition stands in solidarity with the Asian community in the midst of the horrific, racist and misogynist massacre that took place in Atlanta on March 16. Six Asian women were among the eight shot to death at point blank range.

The alarming rise in hate crimes over the past year correlates to an increasingly hostile U.S. foreign policy towards China. The opportunistic scapegoating of China during the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with the intensity by which China is deemed the enemy and adversary of the United States, has driven a widespread Sinophobic sentiment nationally. The Asian American community suffers the brunt of the hatred fomented as a weapon of war. To date, there have been 3,800 self-reported hate crimes against Asian Americans.

Racism is a sick symptom of a system that profits from war and violence. And to put insult to injury, the cop (in Atlanta) handling the case was found to be promoting anti-China paraphernalia.
