CAIPA Condemns Hate Crimes and Racism on “Science Magazine” with Other Physician Associations

亞美醫師協會和北美醫學組織在「科學」雜誌聯合發文譴責仇恨犯罪種族主義

 
34个知名北美医生和科学家组织在《科学》联合发文:停止仇恨犯罪和种族主义
我們是北美的醫生和科學家組織。我們強烈譴責社會中的任何形式的仇恨、暴力和種族主義。雖然,很不幸,這些都不是新出現的問題,但是,最近上升的針對亞裔美國人和太平洋諸島後裔的歧視和仇恨犯罪是災難性的,令整個社區所有人都極為不安。

針對亞裔美國人和太平洋諸島後裔的仇恨犯罪和暴力事件不斷增加,在我們的社區內引發了害怕和恐怖。所有人都擁有自由、平等的尊嚴和權利。沒有人應該由於他們的外表或文化和種族背景,而擔心自己的安全或者遭受任何形式的身體或情感攻擊。不受歧視的權利是一項基本的我們必須維護的人權。
美國以移民為基礎而蓬勃發展,一直是希望和正義的燈塔,吸引著世界各地富有才華又勤奮努力的移民。移民及其後代一直並將繼續為美國的發展和繁榮做出巨大而且無可爭議的貢獻。僅就科學界而言,1901至2013年美國的諾貝爾獎獲得者中,超過30%的人是在其他國家出生的,包括來自大中華地區的6名,來自日本的5名,和來自印度的7 名諾獎得主。亞裔美國人和太平洋諸島後裔是這個多元化國家不可或缺的組成部分。

我們呼籲您最強烈地譴責針對任何種族/族裔群體的,包括亞裔美國人和太平洋諸島後裔,任何形式的歧視和犯罪。我們呼籲您在美國及其他地區追求種族平等和寬容。我們呼籲您與我們堅定地站在一起。
 
英文原文:

We are physician and scientist organizations in North America. We vehemently condemn all forms of hatred, violence and racism in our society. While, sadly, these are not new issues, the recent uptick in discrimination and hate crimes against the Asian American and Pacific Islander community is devastating and unsettling to us all as a society.

The increasing hate crimes and violence towards Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have incited fear and terror within our community. All human beings are free and equal in dignity and rights. No one should have to fear for their safety or be the victims of any kind of physical or emotional attacks due to their physical appearance or cultural and ethnic background. The right to freedom from discrimination is a fundamental human right-one that we must uphold.

Built upon and thriving on immigration, the United States has always been a beacon of hope and justice to attract talented and hardworking immigrants from all over the world. Immigrants and their descendants have been and will continue to make tremendous and incontrovertible contributions to the growth and prosperity of the US. Just for the scientific endeavor alone, over 30% of the Nobel Prize Laureates in the United States during 1901-2013 were born in other countries, including 6 from Greater China, 5 from Japan, and 7 fromIndia1 2 Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are a vital and integral part of this diverse nation.

We call on you to denounce in the strongest terms all forms of discrimination and crimes against any racial/ ethnic group, including Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. We call on you to pursue racial equality and tolerance in the United States and beyond. We call on you to stand strong and together with us.
