Sick of the Con Dem’s regime of cuts and austerity?

Tired of watching helpless while the government destroys people’s lives and create a world we don’t want to live in?

Then join us on International Women’s Day to take direct action to stop the cuts.

We are an independent coalition of feminist and anti-cuts activists who think it’s time to take matters into our own hands. We are particularly concerned about the gendered impact of the cuts which will jeopardise safe and free access to abortion, force single mothers back to work when their children are still young, close down rape crisis centres and women’s refuges as well as many more services for women and LGBT people.

This action is open to people of all genders and none.

Here is some context for people wondering why the women's library has been chosen:

Hi,

The blogspot doesn't seem very up-to-date? since the library has been under threat for some time and no reprieve so far it seems despite protests and alternative ideas for keeping it open and fully accesible. It might be useful to add some more info on your strategy around the occupation when you can.

Thanks.

Hey Spikymike

I just posted the link to the blog to fill people in on what London Met have been doing to the Women's Library. I'm not sure what links if any there are between the blog and the occupation.

Cheers
