Have you ever thought about standing to be a Labour Councillor?

Councillors are elected to represent their local community. You will have a passion for your area and want the best for the place that you live in. Councillors make decisions that make a difference to the quality of residents’ daily lives.

Being a Councillor requires commitment and hard work but is very rewarding.

This session looks at the role of a Councillor and you will hear from a senior Councillor about what it’s really like. In addition the session looks at how you go about getting selected and then how to get elected, with top tips for both. There will be plenty of opportunity for questions and contributions.

Refreshments will also be served and a chance to network with other attendees.

If you are interested in being a Councillor in the future then this is definitely a
session you should attend. It will take place:

Date: Friday 23 November 2018 | Time: 18.00-20.00 | Venue: Local Government Association, 18 Smith Square, London SW1P 3HZ

Please send a short write-up about yourself and why you want to be a Councillor and email to info@chineseforLabour.org.uk

Chinatoen_Fishing_Raids.jpg

Date: 24 Jul 2018 | Time: 12:00 to 17:00 | Newport Place, London WC2H 7PR

On Tuesday, 24 July 2018, London's Chinatown will witness a complete shutdown of all business premises including restaurants and shops. At noon, whistles will signal the beginning of a protest led by business and community leaders together with community activists and workers. The action will last for five hours and will also include a peaceful demonstration to the Home Office in Westminster.

The closure is in response to the discriminatory conduct of immigration and police officers during and following a ‘fishing raid’ by immigration officers on a restaurant on Thursday, 5 July 2018.

Not only were staff members at the restaurant treated with unreasonable aggression and handcuffed, a deaf and mute woman who started a peaceful protest by lying on the road was manhandled and nearly run over by an immigration van. When community leaders tried to intervene peacefully to calm the situation they too were treated with contempt and threatened with arrest.

Finally, after two hours, the protesting woman was taken to the hospital and the area declared a crime scene, partly to disperse members of the public who began to complain about the behaviour of police and immigration officers.

There are other serious concerns that need to be answered by the authorities: They include:

  • Why did the raid take place days after a roundtable meeting instigated by immigration officials to engage with the community and to build trust & goodwill with the business & community leaders?
  • Why were the community concerns raised at the meeting ignored so blatantly?
  • There are serious questions about the legality of the fishing raid: we now know the immigration officers left a notice (under Section 179 of the Licensing Act) in the targeted restaurant without explaining what it meant.
  • However, licensing enforcement is the responsibility of the Local Council and not of the Immigration Department. We seek urgent clarification on whether the trusted Warrant procedures will now be abandoned.
  • Why did the police disregard the protesting woman’s safety and welfare, given her serious disabilities?

London's Chinatown is a vital component of London’s economy and a major tourist and cultural attraction. Its members have the right to be treated with respect and dignity and will not tolerate aggressive or discriminatory behaviour from enforcement agencies.

We urge everyone to join us in our protest on Tuesday 24 July 2018. Download the flyer HERE
