snip from Sydney Morning Herald

The family of a Chinese student, who fell naked to her death from the balcony of a Waterloo apartment block last month, will set up a fund to teach international students about personal safety in Australia.

The lawyer for the girl's mother and stepfather said it was their wish that the 18-year-old's horrific death be used to highlight why students arriving in Australia needed basic self-defence training and better advice on safety issues.

"We would like all overseas students and the public to know that safety issues for overseas students is very, very important," lawyer Daniel Sheen said.

Our thoughts are with the victim's families. I especially applause the (Wu) family's decision to set up a fun to help ALL overseas
students in the midst their grief...

use chinese to call other chinese to tell them there is a problem

if you are attacked entering a building hide your keys, and say you dont have them, or are going to a friends dorm, or pretend you are going to ask about a home work question, or go to the wrong door, and ask them for help, and kick the door and speak chinese in a way that the people inside might know there is a problem

make a code word which means dial 911 for emergency help, such as, "is the rice on fire?" or something that you could shout though the door

check for people behind you.. be arrogant, dont allow strangers to enter your building without their own key, even if they forgot theirs,

close the door tightly behind you

report suspicious people near your building who you think might be trying to slip in behind someone, or looking for easy targets

report suspicious gazers and people you think are trying to stare or dont belong in the scene

dont go out after dark - i dont go out after dark in china even, its just asking for trouble

stay with friends


most american girls have pepper spray on their keychain in their purse


you cant buy it in china, so u need to make it your top priority and first purchase when you arrive at your new country

stay away from black people

spray them with the pepper spray whenever they seem to approach you or stare at you for too long

the police will understand

if its a black policeman, spray him too
