Kicking-off the Chinese New Year, the Chinese community speak up as a major voice to contend with for upcoming elections. Amongst the celebrations in London Chinatown, many Chinese people got lessons on how to register to vote, with party representatives from Labour, Conservative, Liberal Democrats and the Green Party schooling the community on the issues.

Chinese Lib Dems and EMLD (Ethnic Minority Lib Dems) jointly hosted a Chinese New Year banquet at the 'Top of the Town Restaurant' in London Chinatown on 12 Feb 2009.
100 dinner guests, which included prominent members of the House of Lords, MPs, and a representative from the Chinese Embassy, were treated to a 12 course meal with wine, as well as a lively debate by Liberal Youth members (Edwin Loo, Dave Ravel, Sara Scarlett and Naomi Smith) on the motion: "The Year of the Ox will be a Year of Stability". Those arguing against the motion won the vote of the audience, afterall Lib Dems would much prefer instability and the toppling of the old Labour vs Tory structure! (Incidentally President Obama was born in the year of the Ox.) The evening was much enjoyed by all.

Ballot papers for the referendum in Manchester will go out next week. Over 1.9m people will have a say in establishing the largest Congestion Charge Zone in UK. This is an other example of how you can let yourself be heard. Will you use your vote?
Across the world, millions of people live under oppressive regimes. They demonstrate, rebel and fight in the name of freedom and democracy, to have the chance to have their chance to vote.
Yet many of us take this right for granted.
There are many people who would like to make your neighbourhood a better place, your hospital a cleaner environment, your schools to offer a better education for your children. These people need your help to get into the positions in local governments and the Parliament, in order to voice your concerns and opinions, as well as ideas and possibilities. If you don't think your existing representatives are doing the right thing for you, then you can choose someone else who will.
With a possibility of a General Election within the next 2 years, this is the time to Get Active!
In case you have need a reminder of how the election process works, take a look at a recent BBC4 documentary: Storyville: Please vote for me
These children may be the leaders of the world in the future!
