    On Friday's Backchat, racism towards Overseas Chinese; and World Obesity Day.
    A survey released by Australian think-tank Lowy Institute found that nearly one in five Chinese
    Australians have experienced verbal or physical abuse because of their heritage.
    Most respondents (66 per cent) said the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to the racist
    incidents, while more than half blamed the state of Australia-China relations.
    And community groups supporting Chinese communities in the UK are being trained to support victims of Covid-related racial attacks, after a Chinese lecturer was assaulted last week.
    Have you or your family friends experienced such racism? Why do you think it is apparently

    The Hong Kong 12

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Danny Gittings

    On Friday’s Backchat, the Hong Kong 12.
    Hundreds of people marched in Taipei at the weekend to demand the release of 12 Hong Kong anti-government protesters who were arrested by mainland authorities in August.
    The 12 were apparently fleeing by boat to Taiwan when the mainland coast guard detained them. They are now in Shenzhen.
    On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, people demonstrated in at least a dozen cities across the world – from New York to Vancouver to Adelaide in Australia – in support of those who were arrested, in a campaign called #save12hkyouths.
    A local online rally was also held.
    Are the 12 simply criminals fleeing justice? What do you think of the way they are being treated? What do you make of the international attention? Should the HK Government offer assistance?
