Chinese People in Italy Protest Against Racism and Violent Armed Robbery

Translator’s Note:  I was in Florence in the mid-1990’s with a Hakka Chinese friend. When we went into a Chinese restaurant, my friend started talking Cantonese to the owners (this is common in the UK) but the owner looked horrified and told her not to speak Chinese because the white Italians do not like it! I am impressed with the courage of the Chinese people in Naples who were bullied by the police and arrested for marching – and disturbed by the fact that not one white Italian joined their protest against racism, the rape of Chinese women in Italy, or the armed robberies perpetuated against them!  ACW 23.4.2016


On March 1st, 2016, Chinese people living and working in Italy took to the streets of Naples waving the Red Flag of China and the Tricolour Flag of Italy – calling for an end of Italian racism aimed at Chinese people, which is often the cause of many violent robberies against Chinese individuals and businesses in this European country.  This racism is prolific and aimed not just at recently arrived Chinese migrants, but just as much at Italian-born Chinese people.  (Chinese women are often raped by white racists whilst the Italian police take no action, or advise the Chinese victims to go back to China).
