Together Against Trump – 13th July

Fed up with racism, nationalism, inequality and war mongering? Trump is an inspiration to all the vicious far right movements and politicians across Europe and beyond. While decent people weep at children in cages seperated from their parents, people like Trump encourage the politics of fear and hate.

Trump is visiting the UK on 13th July.

Let’s mobilise and organise across Lambeth and Wandsworth boroughs and build for the big protest!

Build bridges not walls!

Lambeth Council on local libraries: Frequently asked questions and non-answers

For the last three months, Lambeth UNISON has submitted a series of questions concerning impact of Culture2020 and the closure of several of our libraries to be converted into “Healthy Living Centres”. Senior council officials have delayed responses and refused to treat our question seriously – they wouldn’t even give us a reply in an official meeting but told us to “Look on the website” for their response.

Below are the most relevant questions, their answers and our response. Continue reading

Don’t Steal Our Libraries – protest on 5 March

On the 1st April Lambeth Council plans to padlock the doors of five of our libraries. We love Lambeth libraries – which in the last 12 months have become one of the most improved libraries in the country. This is testimony to the hard work of the library staff, many working knowing that the council’s axe is hanging over their jobs and workplaces.

There is an alternative proposal in front of the council that will save jobs and keep all the libraries open. The council aren’t listening to what the people of Lambeth want.

This protest is a really important as we open up a month of action against their plans. Please come along to Windrush square in Brixton on 5 March at 10.30am – bring home made banners, whistles, your favourite books and friends.  The Facebook event is online here.dont steal our libraries
