“In Chapter 2, I brought to your attention about a milestone speech by Michelle Rowland, MP, who spoke in the Australian Parliament about the past discriminatory treatment of Chinese settlers in Australia. I am happy to further present another supporting parliamentary speech by Chris Hayes MP in support of Michele Rowland MP.
In the speech by Chris Hayes, MP, he mentioned the 1855 Committee. This committee did a lot of hard lobbying to get a preliminary result, a good one start, I may add. According to reliable sources, the Committee is made of individual members and some of them are members of the Chinese Community Council of Australia (CCCA). They are members of the 1855 Committee in their private capacity,
Dr Anthony Pun, the National President of CCCA also said in a response to Mr Chris Hayes speech. “We are indebted to Mr Chris Hayes, MP for his speech in parliament . His speech showed strong empathy to the early Chinese settlers as well as to the Australians of Chinese descent.”
A good start in a conciliatory process between the Chinese community and Australia.”
