Guidelines needed for citizens for ”standing up”

Recent reports indicate racist abuse against Chinese ... (see: https://www.linkedin.com/posts/binnakandola_antichineseracism-activity-6664141105849749505-N32w) What would be useful would be a list of proposed wordings that citizens could employ to stand up and step in, when reasonable to do so. (The list could be crafted by specialists such as Liz Stokoe - see https://www.carmtraining.org/) There are other specialists in Scotland too - see the amazing Steve Reicher at St Andrews https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Reicher?wprov=sfti1 (or myself perhaps).

Why the contribution is important

When people have stock phrases to use in challenging social situations it can make it easier for them to be a Good Samaritan as it were - by interjecting and helping behaviour overall. It is a way of promoting harmonious relations when people may be feeling on edge. We all have a vital role to play in promoting good behaviour at this time. we are fortunate in having such a strong political leader in Nicola Sturgeon, which surely must be acknowledged no matter what political party one supports.
