Members of Voices for the Library, along with supporters of the Speak Up for Libraries alliance, library campaigners and supporters, will be joining the TUC demonstration in London on Saturday, A Future That Works. Library campaigners will also be represented at the Glasgow and Belfast marches.
Why are we marching?
- public libraries have a key part to play in getting people back to work and building a modern economy with jobs for all
- libraries are under attack; so are schools, hospitals, housing, transport, industry…everything that makes us a civilised nation
Library supporters will be meeting under the Speak Up for Libraries banner at 11 am on the Embankment opposite Middle Temple Lane. Map here. It’s going to be a big march; if you can’t find us, make sure you have some library-themed placards. A good turn-out this Saturday will be a boost to the Speak Up for Libraries conference three weeks later, on 10 November. Registration is still open.
