Last month, several witnesses reported that a group of young men in clown wigs splashed a red substance onto the walls of Vancouver’s Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. According to the executive director, the suspects were filming the incident while they were splashing the “fake blood”.

It is clearly a message of anti-Asian hate. Vandalism has been a typical hateful gesture targeting the Chinese community, with an increasing rate of 455% in the reports of incidences since 2019, according to the Vancouver Police Department.

The executive director Lorraine Lowe says, “the apparent targeting of the garden, a memorial statue, and the lions guarding the gates to Chinatown is an attack on the community, its culture, and its history.” We propose a more systemic and strict regulation of these behaviors, or it might lead to more severe and harmful threats to the safety of the whole community.
