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.

SL_Party_Conference_2018.jpg

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.

Inspired by the little-known story of World War One’s Chinese Labour Corps, British East Asian companies Moongate and Yellow Earth come together for the first time to present Daniel York Loh’s new play Forgotten 遗忘

At the height of World War One, 140,000 Chinese men left everything and travelled half way around the world to work for Britain and the Allies behind the front lines. Their involvement was considered potentially pivotal in the outcome of the war yet remains largely untold, written out of history.
