On Saturday 30 October, hundreds of carnival demonstrators marched from Crofton Park library to Lewisham town hall to protest against the closure of five Lewisham Libraries. The carnival was addressed by two local MPs – Lewisham East MP Heidi Alexander and Lewisham Deptford MP Joan Ruddock.
With a majority of local MPs supporting the Save Libraries campaign, a 20,000-strong petition against library cuts and a unanimous vote by Lewisham councillors to save the libraries, the ball is well and truly back in the mayor’s court.
