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.

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.

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.

By Helen Goodman MP, Shadow Foreign Minister for China

In recent weeks, many of us have enjoyed celebrations for the Chinese New Year at the start of the Year of the Dog, and Jeremy Corbyn spoke at a fabulous dinner organised by Chinese for Labour.

One of the personality traits of somebody born in the Year of the Earth Dog is resilience; as long as I work hard and do not give up, I will be successful.

In some ways, this reflects the story of the Chinese community in the UK.

There are about 7,000 Chinese-owned businesses in almost every corner of our country, making the Chinese community one of the most successful in Britain.

The Chinese community in the UK has transformed our country for the better
