Chek Ling

Chek Ling arrived in Melbourne in 1962 to study engineering, under the Colombo Plan, from the then British Colony of Sarawak, now part of Malaysia.

Decades later, the anti-Asian episodes fomented by Blainey and later Hanson turned him into a mature age activist.

In retirement he continues to encourage Chinese Australians to stand up and take a fearless stance in the national affairs of the homeland of future generations of Chinese Australians.

He is sometimes aware that his views do not endear him to Chinese community leaders as a whole, nor to the powers that be from time to time.

He has an article on the state of multiculturalism, White Ghosts, Ethnic Dummies, on the Brisbane Institute website, and another, White Ghosts and Chinese Middlemen Devils in Overland, winter 2004.
