SAVE INCA CULTURAL CENTER TIMISOARA - ROMANIA

by anonymous Monday, Dec. 12, 2005 at 4:31 PM

INCA Center is a non-profit, all-voluntary place dedicated to the alternative culture. The place has hosted in the past 3 and half years over 150 events: concerts, art exhibitions, projections & movie nights, performance, festivals, etc. also for next year already we have planned many workshops, conferences, concerts and others. If city will evict us, and there is huge chance for this to happen, one of the few alternative places in the region will disappear and will leave us with no place to host all these events. Because we have strong promises that we will never get a second place from the city. Also we know that the only thing that will make the city change their mind is three things: - International protests at Romanian embassies and consulates - Strong international and national response through email/fax/phone - The scandal goes to the media

Hello international friends of INCA,

This is Tavi from city of Timisoara, Romania writing on behalf of the

INCA Center in Timisoara.

INCA stands for International Network of Contemporary Artisans and

the Center is the only alternative place of this kind in Romania.

first of all sorry if this mail doesn't interests you, but we have an

issue in which all you can help us.

We write you because at some point you had a connection with us, our

place or Romania.

We write you because at this point only your active involvement can

save such a place from being evicted.

Please read all this email, even if it might seem long and boring.

INCA Foundation got a place from the city for a period of 5 years to

develop a community center inside a historical part of the city (part

of the defense wall of the old fortress of the city). Now after 3 and

half years the interests of local mafia have become so high that the

pressure that they put on the city to kick us out started to pay

results. So, inspectors came keen on finding stuff that is breaking

the contract so that they have a motivation to throw us in the

streets earlier so that they can give the building to other people,

much richer! Our strong conviction is that this was a deliberate act,

and inspectors which came were not interested to find solutions to

fix the problems they discovered, they were not interested in finding

out if there is another side of the story and so on. They were sent

to find a reason to throw us out.

INCA Center is a non-profit, all-voluntary place dedicated to the

alternative culture. The place has hosted in the past 3 and half

years over 150 events: concerts, art exhibitions, projections & movie

nights, performance, festivals, etc. also for next year already we

have planned many workshops, conferences, concerts and others. If

city will evict us, and there is huge chance for this to happen, one

of the few alternative places in the region will disappear and will

leave us with no place to host all these events. Because we have

strong promises that we will never get a second place from the city.

Also we know that the only thing that will make the city change their

mind is three things:

- International protests at Romanian embassies and consulates

- Strong international and national response through email/fax/phone

- The scandal goes to the media

These are the things that you can help us. But, before, you must know

that the most import thing is that all your actions happen until 13th

December 2005 (also in case you read this email later, still continue

to send email and stuff... but in 13th there is a meeting which will

decide the fate, so we need to convince the mayor before that meeting

so that the process of eviction is not started). No matter if you are

a group, a band, or individual, no matter if you are from Romania or

elsewhere, no matter if you have visited the place or not, it is all

of you the ones that can help this international project in

Timisoara. Here are our suggestions:

- International protests/fax letters embassies and consulates, at

city halls with Timisoara has partnership agreements: Faenza (Italy),

Gera (Germany), Karlsruhe (Germany), Mulhouse (France), Rueil -

Malmaison (France), Szeged (Hungary), Sassari (Italy), Treviso

(Italy).

On Monday we will organize an action in front of our center and also

press conference. We need support of all groups and people that can

organize on Monday protests in front of Romanian embassies and

consulates in your countries and also send protest letters to these

institutions also. Our proposal is:

MONDAY 12 DECEMBER INTERNATIONAL ACTION DAY AGAINST EVICTION OF INCA

CULTURAL CENTER

As slogans we thought to:

"CINE VREA SA ARUNCE CULTURA IN STRADA?!" (WHO WANTS TO THROW CULTURE

IN THE STREETS?!)

and

"SALVATI CENTRUL CULTURAL INCA TIMISOARA" (SAVE INCA CULTURAL CENTER

TIMISOARA).

Maybe too general... but still is the language the bureaucrats will

understand easier.

Organizing actions in other European cities would give, we hope, a

good push so that contract is not canceled.

Our demand from the city of Timisoara is that they should not evict

us, until the end of the contract, because we have so many projects

and events planned for next year. We wish that they let us stay the

remaining 1 and half year, and we ask for a fair judgement at the end

of the contract. Underlining the important role INCA has played in

development of alternative culture in our city/country/region in last

years you will help us with your support to maintain at least another

year and half this project alive.

Also if possible contact media for your action and it is not needed

for huge mobilization, remember is more important that these actions

take place, than to loose your time and energy (that you need for

your other projects at home). We suggest picket with banners with the

2 slogans and a protest letter handed to the ambassador or consul in

which you ask the city of Timisoara not to end the contract with INCA

until its end.

In case action can and will be planned also by you, please get in

touch so that we can give you more info at next address:

inca_tm@yahoo.com

Also send us, pictures, reports and protest letters you have used

during the action.

- Strong international and national response through email/fax/phone

For this one is possible that everyone helps. And here goes a model

for support letter that can be used either by individuals, either by

bands either by organizations.

The letter must be emailed (and if possible faxed also) to the mayor

or Timisoara, Gheorghe Ciuhandu.

"In the attention of Mr. Gheorghe Ciuhandu, mayor of city of Timisoara

I/we join the International protest that has started few days ago in

solidarity with INCA Cultural Centre from Timisoara. I/we, like many

others, participated and plan to participate again in actions and

events that took and will take place in INCA Cultural Centre. Please

let INCA Cultural Centre to function until the end of its contract

with the city in May 2007, and make a fare evaluation of its activity

after that. This must be done by the city of Timisoara because the

INCA Cultural Centre is an important location for the alternative

culture in Timisoara, Romania and the surrounding European region.

� And here put your name, put short description of your group maybe

or your experiences in Timisoara/INCA Cultural Center �
