STOP Haringey Council from taking Lord Morrison Hall from Afro International.
We are kindly asking you to support the petition to keep Lord Morrison Hall in the hands of the community. Afro International has been running Lord Morrison hall successfully for almost 22 years without any financial help from the council. The local council are attempting to stifle the growth, education, opportunities and talents of everyone especially our young people and elders by wanting to take away a space run and used by the community. With weekly activities geared towards community development which are desperately needed especially after the riots of 2011; Afro International is meeting the challenge of providing a positive space and support for young people in the community. In June this year Harringey Council gave the 32-year old Community Centre six month’s notice of its plan to oppose the renewal of the lease due in February 2013. Without the renewal of the Lord Morrison Hall lease for Afro International and the danger of the council closing down the hall, the council are going back on their words of working to engage all communities in building Tottenham into a vibrant, prosperous and exciting place where people choose to live, work and enjoy life. The Lord Morrison Hall's clientele are mainly, minorities such as women, children and ethnic minority communities. There will be a demographic deficit should Afro International lose its lease, coupled with the loss of vital services for the most vulnerable in the community. The community needs Afro International's lease renewed and Lord Morrison Hall to remain open. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT HAS SIGNED THE PETITION SO FAR. More signatures are needed, so please pass on the information/link. Thank you.
