Racists confronts anti-Asian hate protesters in Vancouver


At least two people attacked anti-Asian hate protesters in Vancouver this week, reports CTV News.

The demonstrators gathered outside the hearing for two people accused in an alleged hate incident at a coffee shop .

As one of those accused left the courthouse, he approached the demonstrators and berated them with bigoted remarks.

“You brought the coronavirus to this country and you’re killing our people,” Michel Jean-Jacque Berthiaume is heard saying, reported Global News.

“I prefer to have English or French or German than have Chinese in this country.”

Berthiaume and his co-defendant Astrid Maria Secreve were in court, accused of using Sinophobic slurs and throwing coffee at a barista in March after being asked to maintain social distance.

The incident involving Berthiaume this week outside the courthouse was the second involving the anti-racism rally.

The same group were also attacked by a woman leaving the courthouse on an unrelated matter.

Mounties arrested the woman for “hitting several of them (demonstrators) and damaging at least one cell phone in the process.”
