Appeal: Help Seomra Spraoi win a car just by taking a minute of your time
Seomra Spraoi, Dublin’s only autonomous collectively run social centre – and general wonderful place full of wonderful people – is in with a real chance of winning a car, which we’ll then sell for money. You can help us win by merely voting here: http://www.gumtree-winsomewheels.com/individual_entry.php?id=660 (its takes one minute or less – and if you’ve got more than one email account then you can use that too – the more the merrier obviously).
[6pm, Sun, 17 Jan] Seomra is currently in the lead by about 90 votes, but we need more more more. I’m not even sure when the closing date for this is.
If you’re wondering why you should vote for Seomra, here’s ten reasons:
1 ) It’s a non corporate social space in one of the most corporatised places in Ireland – ie Dublin.
2 ) It receives no state or any kind of other grant funding – it survives solely on the donations and standing orders of its users.
3 ) It puts on fucking great nights – (live and DJ) reggae, hip hop, punk, soul, rock ‘n’ roll, dubstep, big beat etc etc. Hell, even I’m allowed to do the music sometimes.
4 ) The food is cheap and great – and its BYOB which is always a plus.
5 ) You’re guaranteed to make new friends there – and see people you haven’t seen in ages.
6 ) The rent is crippling and we’re in a recession
7 ) The volunteers are lovely people (except me, I’m a cunt obviously)
8 ) They host talks you’re unlikely to hear anywhere else, even on the left. Agree or disagree with the content, at least they are getting a forum. Not to mention the workshops and creche.
9 ) The best play I’ve ever seen was on there, Marx in Soho. Fair enough, I’ve only ever seen two plays, but still.
10 ) They are friends of the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign, and we jointly held a very successful Palestinian cultural night there in October.
We are all Semora Spraoi – so go and vote!
