MASS RALLY, WINDRUSH SQUARE, BRIXTON
SATURDAY MARCH 5, 10.30am onward.
DON’T STEAL OUR LIBRARIES!
This is the message from the people of Lambeth to the council – which
plans to wreck five of its 10 libraries.
All were donated to the borough’s care to provide a service that is
needed more than ever today. They belong to the people of Lambeth.
They are, quite simply, being stolen.
A viable plan exists to keep all 10 libraries running – which would
COST LESS than destroying them, as the council plans.
Unless the council accepts this alternative plan…
MARCH 5 is just four weeks from the date when five libraries are due
to CLOSE – one to be sold off, three to re-open next year irreparably
damaged by being converted into – of all things – fee-charging gyms
that nobody wants.
600 people marched in the rain in November to show that the whole
borough rejects this
disastrous, expensive scheme.
Well over 10,000 signed petitions.
Hundreds came to council meetings that rubber-stamped the closure
plans without considering any alternative.
MARCH 5 IS A LAST CHANCE TO CONVINCE THE COUNCIL
that Lambeth needs all its 10 libraries – and can have them, if the
council just changes its mind…
