Default Indian Students attacked in australia

Guys, I know this is nothing to do with US immigration and Green Card. So, please dont pick on me for posting this here.

I thought i would post it to show how much australia depends on foreign students to run their economy. Its their 3rd biggest exports. One of the below links(Laughing gang 'took delight' in train bashing) actually shows the CCTV footage of the assault.

Safety of international students 'compromised'

Another incident which highlights the misconcieved notion that immigrants take away your jobs. Usually this attitude is held by people of low and low-mid wages. What they dont realize is that without immigrants and with the world open to international free trade, there is no way industry can survive in these developed nations where the cost of living is very high. These people are used to skipping schools / not going to college and still landing some sort of job with which they were able to carry on their love life. Now since they find that there are hardly any industry left (every thing moved to 3rd world) they have to really struggle to keep up with the diminishing job market. They are frustrated about studying and working hard. It is time that industry and business leaders really educate these (stupid) folks that immigration actually benefits the job market on the long run by stablizing wages and through sustaining inovation.

dude, you are very narrow minded.

in any case, crime happens everywhere!! EVERYWHERE. whats the point in discussing a crime on a site like this? this is clearly a psychological need in the poster's mind to sympathize with people of like color and feel sympathized in return. to re-iterate: crime is everywhere - no need to perpetuate negativity and name calling. it should stop with the criminal. (unless, you are using your freedom of speech to basically slander and defame and entire race/nation).

Can you be any more narrow-minded? Please don't generalize!

Typical judgmental racism, you're no different from the Anti-immi's who talk the same way about India/Subcontinent etc.

Australia's a great country, Australians are a fine bunch of peepz, i got tons of Aussie friends here, they're all super cool, every country has a crime problem, but judging a whole culture based on that is not cool.

"Authorities are not co-operative" Victims friends say.

http://www.telegraphindia.com/109052...y_11029057.jsp

"the external affairs ministry is pressing the victorian government to contain such situations". I feel sick to my stomach, when instead of creating an uproar and making everyone attending the case work 24/7, our ministers give such lame statements.

This reminds me of the statement "Such things happen in big cities" said by the deputy chief minister, in reference to the Mumbai hotel attacks. They DO NOT CARE about an Indian citizens' life.

Chi_Shark,

we all know "CRIME HAPPENS EVERYWHERE", It may not be a hate crime. News items are showing that this is shaking australian government and they are coming out to condemn it and acting on it. Asking international students not travel lonely etc., I expect you to read those news items before writing some random, generalized comments.

Today there was one more attack as per Times of India.

If its not targeted towards foreign students, why would they do that?

Did anyone else notice that a couple of perpetrators were non-white? One looked south asian and the other oriental!

This shows it was not racism.

yep, it is not a racial attack. It is just that the guy was vulnerable given he is travelling alone and the rest in that coach are a gang. On the whole, it looks like foriegn students are getting targeted not specific to any race or country.

The video is totally misleading.
THat was a video from a previous attack in a train. The kids were not trying to kill the other guy.
and was not even picked up by the wires.

The current case is where a group of australians gate crashed a indian party and attacked everyone, chanting racial abuses, asking them to leave australia, attacking with screwdrivers to an extent that one indian is fighting for his life in the hospital.
