London, UK: Communiqué to the owners of Colorama: We will resist any attempt to make us homeless. We will resist any attempt to further gentrify this area.

jayesh patel,

you’ve been acting on behalf of flamingo holdings limited (a property development company based out of the cayman islands).
you’ve asked that we vacate these premises after a possession order was issued and claim granted on march 20th by lambeth county court. you’ve told us you don’t want to waste money on bailiffs and that we should not act like “savage animals”.

for us, this is not a matter for civilized dialogue and action. this is about political and social struggle.

London: Library Street, court adjourned for at least 21 more days!!!!

Today 6th of Feb at 12pm Colorama buildings went to Court. The judge deemed not worth the time going on with the procedure in a case where not enough evidence was provided by Claimants and didn’t even want to hear the Defendants.

Claim did not show how C1 and C2 are not connected at all and meant to treat it as one. They should be considered in different court cases and above all claimant’s papers have to be properly arranged….which won’t happen in less than 21 days!!!  🙂
There are more juicy details about the case… The section about “The Building” in this blog will bee soon updated.
