The StopAsianHate campaign has also happened in some other parts of the world, such as the Netherlands.

Lyu Can, a student from China who launched the event in Amsterdam, said: "After the shocking Atlanta shooting happened in the US … I saw some of my Asian friends in the Netherlands post their experiences of being discriminated against. I feel like it is time to speak up and start to do something about StopAsianHate."

Can has lived in the Netherlands for six months and never experienced discrimination herself. "But it does not mean discrimination does not exist. Keeping silent is (encouraging) violence," she told China Daily.
