March Against the Cuts

“There is not such a cradle of democracy upon the earth as the Free Public Library, this republic of letters, where neither rank, office, nor wealth receives the slightest consideration.” – Andrew Carnegie

I couldn’t make it to March for the Alternative on Saturday, so as one of the armchair activists on this occasion, here’s a little collection of my favourite bits and pieces from the internet. There were lots of librarians and people fighting to save libraries who went along. Proud is the wrong word, but it makes me feel happy to know there are some brilliant people out there who aren’t prepared to put up with this rubbish.
