屋崙華埠中秋街會28日閉幕。華埠社區領袖陳錫澎表示,攤位比去年增加近50個,達到250個,兩天時間約有10萬人來參觀街會。

免費文化表演 提升街會人氣

當天下午1時許,華埠九街、富蘭崙街等地人潮湧動,有人在買風車,祈求中秋行大運,移動的舞獅表演更是被遊客包圍得裡三層外三層。有人在嘗鮮龍鬚糖,有人對古箏學習班感興趣。世界日報攤位前,市民忙著買報紙,掃描世界日報舊金山微信公眾號「世界華人資訊」或登陸世界日報舊金山資訊網(http://www.wjsfbay.com/),點擊一周新聞閱讀。兩天時間世界日報共銷售2000份。

美心月餅攤位前,不少人排隊買月餅。代理美心月餅的負責人李先生說,公司從香港運貨過來,分銷給各大超市,很少零售,「此次在華埠銷售,價錢也比大超市便宜,雙黃白蓮蓉月餅在超市可能要40多元,今天只需要36元每盒。」

李先生表示,今年街會比去年熱烈,人流也多,「這次是數年來首次賣月餅,再加上天氣好,逛街的人很多。」

居民甄倩表示,今年人流和攤位增加的原因是街會不再只擺攤賣東西,「遊客不一定喜歡太過商業化,需要點免費的文化表演增加人氣。如今年的舞獅表演可以在街道來回移動,將人吸引出來,他們逛一會街自然會購買物品,而且有的免費攤位在街道一頭一尾,遊客走累了也有消費慾望。」

2000人簽名反對公投汽水稅

屋崙華埠、東方食品商會、美亞正義聯盟等機構在街會發放資料,告知市民屋崙11月公投的汽水稅資訊,呼籲簽名反對汽水稅。

屋崙11月公投汽水稅(Soda Tax)提案,提議每盎司含糖飲料徵稅一分錢。提案涵蓋的範圍廣,包括汽水(蘇打類飲料),能量提升飲料,運動飲料,但也括華埠常見的茶,珍珠奶茶、維他奶飲品、豆漿、菊花茶、果汁等飲料。

陳錫澎說,超過2000人簽名反對汽水稅,「我徵詢過至少10戶商家意見,他們看法驚人一致,若真的徵稅,商戶為避免消費者起疑,會平均提高所有產品物價。物價一高,很多人就可能改到屋崙以外的地方購物,華埠小商業將受嚴重打擊。」

陳錫澎表示,含糖分的食品很多,最擔心徵收汽水稅開壞頭,政府以後甚至有藉口徵收額外的蛋糕稅,「華埠還會推動更多市民登記選民,投反對票。並聯合其他族裔商戶和低收入者再召開一次大型記者會,將自己的聲音傳遞出去。」
