The New Londoners digital magazine - launch of latest edition “The New Londoners addresses the perception of migrants portrayed in the mainstream media and celebrates the diversity that migrants bring to the capital city” says Ros Lucas, Editor in Chief. She goes on to say “In every issue we feature a migrant community and in this issue we showcase the Greek Cypriot community, the contribution it makes to London life, and one of their most famous stars - George Michael. We also look at the history of how migrants are portrayed in the media in the lead article - “Same Old Story.”
The magazine is for both the new and host communities in London. It features several stories of individuals who are trying to make a difference, such as Sudanese-born Khadija who has set up a community organisation to combat knife and gun crime, Eddie and Anita who run the Dover House Lions Football Club for youngsters on an estate in south west London.
Hasani, a Zimbabwean asylum seeker, tells his story of leaving Zimbabwe and the difficulties of claiming asylum in the UK.
