The Library House, few more weeks

Posted in events on January 19, 2010 by cHe0

Today was probably the last court date the library house crew had to attend.
Our court case was a very complicated one.
The building is owned by Lambeth Council. Few months before we started occupying it, they illegaly evicted the previous tenant, a black single mother, while she was away. That was our line of defense all along against the council: “You are not entitled to evict us, because we believe that you evicted the previous tenant illegaly and she is the one who should take us to court”. We then contacted this former tenant and told her to come to court and defend her case, which she did. After a while, the council dropped the case and took her back as a secure tenant.
Even if the situation was clear for everyone and not that complicated to understand solicitors, council and court staff managed to fuck up for quite a while before making sure that the previous tenant could get her house back.
But today, things seemed to be definitely settled and the crew is already planning to move out slowly.

It has been an amazing time using this space! thanks to everyone who got involved, helped or just came round to events! :)

Wednesday 23rd feb
Mexico, 2008, 90 mins., color

Corazon del Tiempo is more than a romance set in Zapatista territory. It is the first feature length film filmed with Zapatista supporters as actors and filmed entirely in an EZLN community. Corazon del Tiempo is a rare and intimate look into the heart of the Zapatista revolution in Chiapas, Mexico.

“ringleaders” and were taken to various prisons. All are now incarcerated in HMP Holloway.

We are calling for the immediate release of the “Yarls Wood 4” and all the other women
