Dear all,

All are welcome!

With love in Christ,

Dear all,

The next two scheduled dates for evenings of Romanian film, 5 July and 2 August, are approaching. However, we are short of proposals of what to see on those occasions (and the next one, on 6 September).

If you have a film you would like to propose and present on one of those occasions, please let us know a.s.a.p. Ideally you should also have the respective DVD to produce for the screening, but we could try to see if this is not available within our community – so if you have a proposal and not the disk, please ask the question on this list.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Reactioneaza la subiectele din presa britanica despre romani in UK!

Prea des vedem stiri care distorsoneaza adevarul despre romanii in UK si care ne acuza pe noi de problemele sociale.

Cand aceste stiri nu sunt adevarate, este datoria noastra sa reactionam si sa nu incercam sa transmitem povestea adevarata.

Romani-online.co.uk, ziarul ? Roman in UK ?, romani.co.uk si societatea Romanca s-au alaturat pentru a sustine proiectul REACT!, o unealta simpla de a lupta contra jurnalismului lenes si a transformarii romanilor din UK in tapul ispasitor al problemelor.

Ideea este simpla. Verificam acuratetea stirilor despre romani in media britanica iar atunci cand acestea nu prezinta informatii corecte, inaintam plangeri. Scopul nostru este sa Our goal trimite cel putin 500 de e-mailuri cu plangeri jurnalistului responsabil in doua ore dupa aparitia stirii. Daca stirea nu este retrasa, urmatorul pas este sa inaintam o plangere oficiala.
Nu putem stopa in intregime mediatizarea negativa despre romani in UK, dar putem sa atentionam jurnalistii si editorii ca romani nu vor tace daca sunt mediatizati pe nedrept. Proiectul React! iti da aceasta voce.

Ce facem noi
De regula vom raspunde doar stirilor incorecte informational despre romanii in UK. Ne liminam actiunilor la aceste stiri deoarece greselile informationale aduc cele mai solide motive pentru a inainta plangeri impotriva ziarelor si impotriva televiziunilor, succesul unei actiuni impotriva lor de catre comisiile autorizate fiind mare. Exista stiri si povesti de presa carora nu le vom raspunde, dar in momentul de fata suntem de parere ca este cel mai bines a ne concentram eforturile pentru a schimba ceva in opinia presei britanice. Daca acest proiect va lua amploare, atunci ambitiile noastre pot creste si ele.

Ce poti face tu!
1. Aboneaza-te pe website-ul nostru (www.reactgroup.org.uk). Cand un subiect incorect va fi mediatizat, o sa iti transmitem un e-mail cu o scrisoare de plangere. Iti cerem sa trimiti aceasta scrisoare jurnalistului care a scris articolul respective si editorului sau. Participarea ta la acest proiect este gratuita.

2. Trimite-ne stirile pe care le vezi despre romani in UK- acestea pot fi trimite pe website. Chiar daca nu raspundem fiecarei stiri in parte,creand o arhiva.

Este momentul ca romanii din UK si sustinatorii lor sa isi faca pararea auzita!

React to press stories about Romanians in the UK!

Too often we see stories that distort the truth about Romanians in the UK or blame us for social problems.

Where these stories are untrue it is our duty not to let them go unchallenged.

Romani-online.co.uk, Roman in UK newspaper, romani.co.uk and the Romanca Society have joined together to support the React! project, a simple tool to enable you to fight back against lazy journalism or the scapegoating of Romanians in the UK.

The idea is simple. We fact check news stories about Romanians in the British media, and where they are inaccurate, we make complaints. Our goal is to deliver at least 500 email complaints to the journalist responsible within 2 hours of an inaccurate story appearing. If they do not retract their story the next step is to make formal complaints to the independent regulatory bodies.

We cannot put an end to all negative coverage about Romanians in the UK, but what we can do is make journalists and editors aware that Romanians will not stay silent if they are targeted unfairly.

The React! project gives you this voice.

What we do
As a rule we will only respond to factually inaccurate stories about Romanians in the UK. We are limiting our actions to these stories because factual inaccuracies provide the strongest grounds for making complaints against newspapers or television, and ensuring action by their regulators. This means there are some stories we will not respond to, but at this stage we think it is best that we focus our efforts where they can make a difference. If the project grows, then our ambitions can grow with it.

What you can do
1. Sign up on the website (www.reactgroup.org.uk). When an inaccurate story appears we will email you with a letter of complaint. We ask only that you send this on to the journalist that wrote the story and their editor. Being part of the project is entirely free.

(The website still needs some finetuning ? so excuse its mistakes ? but we need a membership base before the project can launch.)

2. Send us all the stories that you see about Romanians in the UK ? they can be submitted through the website. Even if we don?t respond to each and everyone of these we can still build an archive of media coverage and so document the attitude of the UK press toward Romanians.

It is time for Romanians in the UK, and their supporters, to stand up and speak out!

Proiect cultural pentru copiii romani din Londra

“Amintiri din copilaria mea” – o celebrare a copilariei

In data de 1 iunie 2008 Scoala de Cultura si Traditie Romaneasca din Londra va organiza un eveniment care isi propune sa celebreze varsta si bucuria copilariei. Avand scopul de a prezenta activitatile scolii din Londra, evenimentul va include, printre altele, un spectacol organizat impreuna cu copiii, precum si un concurs de eseuri si desene cu tema “Amintiri din copilaria mea”.

Data si locul desfasurarii evenimentului:
Duminica, 1 iunie 2008, incepand cu ora 18.00, la sediul Institutului Cultural Roman din Londra (ICR London, 1 Belgrave Square, London, SW1X 8PH, UK).

Din program:

-Prezentarea unui film al scolii, care va ilustra activitatile desfasurate cu copiii in cadrul acestui program educativ (incluzand imagini din timpul derularii acestora, precum si opinii ale copiilor).

-Prezentarea unui spectacol organizat impreuna cu copiii, care va include poezii si cantece romanesti, precum si piesa de teatru “Pupaza din tei”, reprezentand o adaptare a unui fragment din cartea “Amintiri din copilarie” de Ion Creanga.

-Decernarea premiilor pentru concursul de eseuri si desene cu tema “Amintiri din copilaria mea”. La acest concurs vor participa si alti copii romani din diferite tari ale Europei, inscrisi la scoli similare celei din Londra. Desenele copiilor vor fi, de asemenea, expuse in ziua desfasurarii evenimentului.

-Pregatirea unui bufet pentru participantii la eveniment, oferit dupa incheierea spectacolului copiilor.

Evenimentul va fi sustinut in limba romana si se va adresa in egala masura copiilor, parintilor, precum si tuturor celor interesati de activitatile Scolii Romanesti si de celebrarea copilariei. Este vorba despre un eveniment inedit, fiind una dintre primele ocazii pentru copiii romani care locuiesc in Marea Britanie de a fi implicati intr-un proiect cultural de acest fel.

Scoala de Cultura si Traditie Romaneasca isi propune sa implementeze acest proiect prin implicarea unui numar cat mai mare de copii romani, atat in calitate de participanti cat si de beneficiari ai acestuia.
Este important de mentionat faptul ca toate activitatile care vor fi desfasurate impreuna cu copiii in data de 1 iunie 2008 au drept scop familiarizarea acestora cu anumite aspecte ale culturii romanesti, intr-un mod interactiv si antrenant.

Va adresam invitatia calda de a ne fi alaturi in 1 iunie 2008 pentru a celebra frumusetea copilariei impreuna cu cei mici.

Participarea la eveniment este gratuita (intrarea se face pe baza confirmarii prealabile a participarii). Pentru rezervari, va rugam sa ne contactati la numerele de telefon:

07896319793 – Alina Pop
07878796962 (dupa ora 15) – Mihaela Giuraniuc

Eveniment organizat de Scoala de Cultura si Traditie Romaneasca, cu sprijinul Institutului Cultural Roman, sub patronajul Ambasadei Romane la Londra.
