近日，小党派参议员Fraser Anning利用他在议会的第一次演讲呼吁禁止穆斯林移民，并重启白澳政策，遭到政府高级部长的抨击，移民社区团体做出回应，连他的前政党领袖，一国党参议员Pauline Hanson也表示对他的言论感到“震惊”。
昨晚总理Malcolm Turnbull和移民部长Alan Tudge在社交媒体上批评了这名由一国党转入“凯特的澳洲人党”（The Katter’s Australian Party）的保守派参议员。
Q1: 您对Fraser Anning的演讲怎么看？
蔡家声：第一， 他违背了四十多年来澳洲几乎所有主要政党共同支持的多元文化国策； 第二， 他违背了我们澳洲的移民政策。
在选民中，支持他的选票也是很少的。我很高兴总理Malcolm Turnbull和公民事务和多元文化部长Alan Tudge等马上发言指责他，工党参议院领袖黄英贤议员也第一时间站出来反驳他。Fraser Anning的演讲是非常恶劣的，澳洲政坛上这么多代表表态反对是值得欣慰和高兴的一件事， 我认为这件事将起到一个好的反作用 ，使得举国上下能够重申认可多元文化的国策。
What do you think of Senator Fraser Anning's Speech in Parliament?
First, He has violated the Australian multicultural national policy that has been supported by almost all the major political parties in Australia for more than 40 years;
Second, He violated our non-discriminatory immigration policy of Australia as well.
Senator Anning was voted in and supported by a very small number of primary votes.
I am very pleased that the Prime Minister, the Hon. Malcolm Turnbull and the Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs the Hon. Alan Tudge and others Ministers and shadow Ministers immediately criticized him including the Federal Labor Leader of the Senate, the Hon. Ms Penny Wong. She raised from the Senate to refute him in no uncertain term. Fraser Anning's speech was very bad. It is gratifying to see that so many Federal representatives in Australia's political arena have expressed their opposition. I think it turns out to be a good reaction. It enables the whole nation to reaffirm its recognition of the our correct and successful national multicultural policies.
What do you think of the existence and rise of political forces in Australia against the national multicultural policies in recent years?
Yes, I think Australia's political opposition to the national multicultural policies has been on the rise in the last year or two.
This upward trend, in addition to Australia's domestic reasons, is also influenced by the global right-leaning populist ideas and by U.S. President Donald Trump's " America first populism". This populism is dangerous and can be easily exploited by a minority of right-wingers and fear mongers. Slogans like "these immigrants are stealing our jobs and terrorising our citizens etc" can bewitch into fear for ordinary citizens who can be conned into believing their rumours.
If such forces are allowed to spread unchecked, they may even create social divisions. and upheaval. So we have to be vigilant against these few people in Australia. All Australians should remain sober and constantly reminding our national leaders not to take this wrong path.
In fact, former Liberal Prime Minister Abbott and previous Minister of Immigration Dutton have to a varying degrees move toward this tendency in their speeches and action. I think this is wrong.
Do you think that these anti-multicultural populist forces also indirectly affect the mainstream politics in Australia, and make them biased toward the direction of multiculturalism, is that right?
Yes, they are willing to influence mainstream politics, and we must remain sober-minded and know who are the trouble makers. Using our public opinion and the power of the people to suppress the bad influence of these people.
What do you think the current the living environment of Chinese in Australia?
I think the current living environment of the Chinese in Australia is generally good, because our Government and national policies are protecting multiculturalism, which is opposed to a very small number of opportunistic politicians and people. These minority of people cannot create too much danger right now.However, we must remain highly vigilant, and at the same time, we Chinese must constantly strive to be righteous, good citizens and abide by the law, and cooperate with the mainstream to stop the provocation of these few ultra-rightists.
