Lincoln: 400 march against Library cuts

Around 400 protesters marched in Lincoln on Saturday 21 September to save 32 Lincolnshire libraries from closure. It was called by local Socialist Party member and trade unionist Nick Parker, and backed by the Save Lincolnshire Libraries (SLL) campaign group, Unison Lincolnshire County Branch, PCS DWP Lincolnshire & Rutland, and Lincoln & District TUC.

The cuts plans were cynically announced just a month after this year's council elections, despite not being in any of the manifestos of the parties that won seats. The local authority is run by a coalition of the Tories, Lib Dems, and a splinter independent group.

20,000 people have signed against the library closures. The march was promoted by celebrities including Terry Pratchett, Mark Thomas, and Melvyn Bragg.

On Monday 30 September, a rally was held outside Lincoln's County Hall to mark the end of the council's consultation over the closure plans.
