Video of yesterday's Preston Library seizure

Campaigners protest as Brent Council removes resources from Preston Library

Preston Library campaigners expressed disappointment this morning after Brent Council's  removal of books and other resources from the library yesterday. However they insisted that the situation was not irretrievable and they would press on with both the legal process and the mass appeal to the Culture Secretary for a public inquiry into the closure of half the borough's libraries. The latter appeal has been backed by Sarah Teather MP (Brent Central) in a letter to Jeremy Hunt.

Shame on Brent. This is sickening to watch. The strangest part is the police woman reporting back at the end, and officers looking at the wall of shame posters. Well done to those who 'obstruced', witnessed and filmed.
