Marching for a future that works

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.
