The local council are attempting to stunt the growth, education, opportunities and talents of everyone especially our young people and elders by wanting to close down Centerprise Trust Community and Arts Centre in Dalston. Last year Hackney Council gave the 41-year old centre two weeks to cease operations and hand over the keys to the property.
The Centre is still in danger of closure although the Council have recently agreed to mediation.
The Trust’s clientele are mainly, minorities such as women, children and black and other ethnic minority communities. As the only book shop in Hackney dedicated to radical thought, there will be a democratic deficit should the Centre close, coupled with the loss of vital services to the most vulnerable in the community.
THE CENTRE NEEDS TO REMAIN OPEN
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS SIGNED THE PETITION SO FAR... More signatures are needed though so please pass on the information/link. Thank you
