Centerprise Trust Ltd the Dalston-based community and arts centre this afternoon lost the eviction action by Hackney Council at Central London County Court today, 16th October 2012.

Centerprise CEO, Emmanuel Amevor commented:  ’This is a very sad day for the Dalston community and the wider Hackney and London Community who have been served so well by Centerprise.

After the war there is peace but we don’t believe Hackney Council understand the language of peace.’

We will continue in our endeavours to continue to serve the community in any shape or form in the years ahead.

The trustees will be holding a meeting on Friday, 19th October 2012 @ 7.30 to appraise our members and the public on the next stage of the battle for survival

Greetings ZigZag,
Hope you are well!
I'm having my lunch break at my desk and did some more googling on Swedish codes. I have not come up with anything definite, but an interesting thing turned up from August. As far as I can work out from bits of articles and tweets, the police actually publicised a witness statement that a person who stole a handbag had "Roma looks". This caused outrage it would seem because apparently in Sweden the police do not normally give any ethnic description. What I found interesting was a tweet saying : "Stop the sandpit (he means childish discussions - it is a Swedish expression for lots of things. I could use it in the office if there was in-fighting for example. It means childish in the negative sense = immature) regarding description (the word in Swedish refers specifically to description of persons, it could be a missing person or a criminal e g) and adapt the Britsh police's racial classifcation for Sweden!" So it would seem that they do not use any coding - at least not officially and I have a feeling that if they had a secret one, this would be leaked pretty quickly.
Did I mention to you that a new word in Swedish for African people is "dark". Several of my young colleagues have used it and I said that I thought it was an incorrect word to use. On so many levels! Dark in Swedish means a person who has dark hair. But of course meanings of words do change and no doubt dark will come to mean black as in African. My colleagues were truly outraged when I suggested that the word is racist. They said what should one say (African is not OK as the person may be American) and I said black. But THAT really is worse than dark, one of them said. I don't think they are consciously racist, really not, but the fact that calling someone black would be so baaaaad, to me says a great deal.
I may see you tomorrow at Centerprise. I am on duty from 12 to 6 - a bit long but then I can't do so many Saturdays coming.
All the best,
