Migrant to stand for European Parliament 

Gene Alcantara

Gene Alcantara


Gene Alcantara, a British citizen since 1992, has declared his intention to run for office in the forthcoming European Parliamentary elections on 4 June 2009. 

He knows that Europe is key to influencing government policy in the UK and he hopes to do that if elected for London.

For too long now ethnic minorities, migrants and East and Central Europeans  in the UK have been made the scapegoat for a lot of the ills of British society. Critics have blamed them for the pressures on housing, healthcare and social services, for illegal working, and for taking jobs away from the locals. In this difficult time of global recession, these have created a climate of fear and uncertainty among migrants, and resentment in the wider British community, instead of acceptance and integration. 

Government policy has not helped at all, continually putting pressures on migrants, squeezing them  for more money and making it more difficult for them to exercise their rights as British and European  citizens.

Instead of this, Gene said:

“I would stress the positive contribution of migrants to Britain, harness their energies, and work on building a more inclusive and fair society that does not discriminate  or exclude those who have spent their lives serving the good of this country.” 

Gene urges all ethnic minorities, migrants and East and Central Europeans  in the 74 London parliamentary constituencies to register to vote and turn out on polling day to make their voices heard. It is estimated that 29% of the 7 million Londoners come from the ethnic minorities, and its population is the most diverse in the UK.  They have until 19 May to register as electors, and could also apply to vote by post until then.
