17) Public Library News : “In another example of the new militancy associated with libraries, quite separately, up to 400 people marched through Lincoln demanding an end to the cuts in the county.  The photographs are quite astonishing. The message from this weekend has been clear: the library profession and library users have had enough.  Push us so far and don’t be surprised if we push back.  In a familiar phrase (well, at least to me): you know the situation is  bad if the librarians are protesting.”
