Asian Australian Alliance (AAA), a movement for empowering and giving a strong and independent Asian Australian voice, has held a forum and media conference on 23 September, at the Victorian Trades Hall Council.

Feminist and equality rights advocate Melba Marginson joined the forum to put a Filipino perspective on the issue.  She joined other members of the panel in condemning the misinformation and hate-literature that have been disseminated by the “no” supporters to Asian communities in various languages.
