“No Chinese Allowed” signs seen around universities in Melbourne

According to the local Australian Chinese media publications Melbourne Today and Melbourne WeLife, anti-Chinese posters have been plastered around prestigious universities such as Monash University and the University of Melbourne.

Translation:

Attention!

No Chinese are allowed within this area. If intrusion occurs, deportation will likely happen.

Posters were emblazoned with the National Union of Students (NUS), Chinese Students and Scholars Association (CSSA) and the Monash Students Association Logos (MSA).

The CSSA have already replied that the logos were used without their consent and they do not in anyway support the messages written on the offensive flyers.

 

Melbourne Today reported that Chinese native speakers were able to work out the discrepancies and grammatical errors within the flyers. For instance, there was a Japanese Kanji character used in place of the Chinese Hanzi character 将, showing that the creator of the flyers most likely had a poor grasp of cultural differences. The grammar and sentence structure is also very robotic, likely due to translation software use.

Furthermore they reported that the Melbourne International Students Clubs found an hyperlink to the Antipodean Resistance website on the back of one of the flyers.

Antipodean Resistance, a white nationalist group, seem to be the most likely source of these flyers. It is most likely they used the logos of the NUS, MSA and CSSA to spread their hateful messages towards the Chinese community and to sow discord among Melburnians.
