马来西亚的种族主义发展已是无孔不入，且愈趋激进。保守的扶弱政策已急遽转变成激进、制度化的种族主义，不但斫伤社会发展潜力，带来毁灭性，长此下去，对国人无疑是一项灾难。 Racism in Malaysia is developing into a subtle, pervasive and increasingly aggressive form. What started as a defensive affirmative action program is now fast degenerating into aggressive form of institutionalized racism. This is sapping the potential of Malaysian society. The future on this trajectory is disastrous for all Malaysians. It will bring ruin.
国内的政治、法律和行政结构是制度化种族主义的温床，亟需全面改革。为此，公众必须真正了解发生了什么事。这并不简单，因为所有资讯掌握在种族主义制度中。在带来任何真正改变前，公众意见必须与发展中的现实一致。以国人目前所掌握的现实，仍不足以让公民行动崛起，这项困境亟待克服。 The political, legal and administrative structures of our country – the anchors and sources of the institutionalization need to be fundamentally revamped. For this to happen, the public view of what is truly happening must become sharper. This is not an easy task – given the resources at hand for the beneficiaries of this racist system. Public opinion must first be aligned with this developing reality, before any change can happen. With the kaleidoscope with which we all view Malaysia the perceived reality now, is not disturbing enough to galvanize people to action. This needs to be addressed.
兴都权利行动力量和隆雪华堂民权委员会拟联办此论坛，向社会大众传达典范转移的急迫性。让我们一起参与这个系列论坛的首炮活动，了解在我国根深蒂固的种族主义机制，以及对国家未来的影响。 HINDRAF and CRC are taking upon themselves to educate the public to address the needed paradigm shift . Together we embark on the first of a series of forums to highlight and educate about the structures and processes that entrench racism into our system, the impact to the nation and to the future of the nation if this is all left unchecked. And also to inform of some early stage activities in this respect.
这是历来首次在公开论坛讨论相关课题。我们期望打破禁忌，让它们升华成为人人关心的议题。这也是兴权会和民权委员会共同推动破除国内种族隔阂运动的一部分。长久以来，我们一直被恐吓，被迫默默接受种族主义现况，坐视它逐步侵蚀个人和民族的基本权益。如今，我们应坐言起行，成为追求改变的一份子，共同向种族主义说不。 This is the first time this topic is being broached in a public forum. We wish to push this topic into the foreground of political discourse in our country. – in its barest from. This is part of the campaign of HINDRAF and Civil Rights Committee of KLSCAH to bring an end to racism in the country. We have been browbeaten to accept the status quo of this racist regime – but it only continues to reduce us as a people and as a nation. It is time we stood up and said no to institutional racism and begin the process of change.
诚邀对这项课题有兴趣者踊跃出席。除了学有专精的讲者分享外，透过与会的思想激荡，我们深信一个更自由平等的国度终将出现，届时种族主义将消弭于无形。 We have an interesting evening planned at the forum. We invite all concerned Malaysians to attend this forum. At the forum besides what the panel of speakers plan to share, we also look forward to tapping the wisdom of the participants in the form of thoughts about attaining a racism free just and equal Malaysia.
