A specific branch of the online right wing has been creating concern over the health impact of soy consumption. Is the lynchpin of Asian food truly a threat to human life?

There are many reasons why a person might enjoy tofu. For over eight millennia the soybean has been cultivated first in China and later across the entirety of East Asia. Western Europe and the American continent have similarly enjoyed soy as milk, oil and tofu for as much as 200 years. With a track record stretching back longer than most civilisations, the modern popularity of soy products might not concern most people, if it weren’t for a concerted effort by white nationalists to frame these products as an anti-white conspiracy.

Sonny Leong CBE, highlighted the need for hard-won victories to be continually defended and fought for.

Chair of Chinese for Labour, Sarah Owen has been selected as Labour Candidate for Luton North in the election on 12 December 2019.

Every community across Luton deserves better than a Conservative Government that has handed down cuts to services and allowed big businesses to exploit local workers. Sarah's experience working in care, in hospitals and in the fire brigade means she knows the difference that well resourced public services can bring to the town and will fight tooth and nail for the investment that Luton needs.

She has a proven track record of delivering change - whether that’s against Tory cuts, or securing better rights for workers from foster carers to the emergency services, manufacturers to shop workers in Luton North - they are all better protected because of laws I’ve helped change and campaigns she has run. And she will continue to deliver if elected as MP.

Chinese for Labour celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year.

A group of activists came together, inspired by the idea that we could create a powerful voice for the Chinese Community.

Who believed that as a community we had been too quiet for too long, keeping ourselves to ourselves. We knew that the Chinese community – with our talent, hard work and values – could play a fuller role in our society and in our politics.

Chinese for Labour was born.

From that small group of comrades, we have become a network – a community – of more than 3,000 members, friends and supporters.

Come and join us - watch out for further announcements. There will be a series of events leading to a celebratory dinner in November 2019.

Chinese for Labour Chair, Sonny Leong CBE was elected to propose the motion on housing at the Labour Party Conference 2018 in Liverpool on Monday, 24 September 2018.

This was his speech - 

Conference, it’s a pleasure to be here to propose this motion on housing.

We all know there’s a housing crisis.

Under the Tories since 2010:

  • Rough sleeping has almost trebled
  • Home-ownership has fallen by 1m for younger households
  • Private rents have risen an average £1800 a year, well ahead of incomes
  • Overall housebuilding still hasn’t recovered to the level it was before the global financial crisis
  • The number of new Government-funded social rented homes has fallen to a record low
  • And, BAME is disproportionately affected by the housing crisis.
