[NEW DATE] Panel event: Repression and Prejudice: the challenges faced by East Asian communities at home and overseas

Stats.jpg

We have rescheduled our online panel event with Sarah Owen MP, Chair of Chinese for Labour. It will now take place on Wednesday 21 October 18:00 - 19:30. 

On the panel, we will have:

  • Sarah Owen MP, Chair of Chinese for Labour and PPS to the Shadow Foreign Secretary
  • Simon Cheng, Hong Kong activist and founder of Hongkongers in Britain
  • Rahima Mahmut, UK Project Director at the World Uyghur Congress and advisor to the Interparliamentary Alliance on China
  • Hau-Yu Tam, student activist and campaigner for End the Virus of Racism 

The past year has been particularly testing for East/Southeast Asian communities: the growing boldness of the CCP in tightening control over its citizens; rising tensions between China, its neighbours, and the West; and for East/Southeast Asians here in the UK, increased racial attacks over the course of the Covid pandemic. This exacerbates the ongoing issue of low political engagement amongst the BESEA community. We have brought together an exciting panel to discuss a way forward. 

To sign up, please register via Eventbrite.

Best wishes, and hope to see you there!
