Thousands sign petitions against library and youth service closures
Campaigners ourside the Council house hand in petitions of over 2800 signatures
On Monday anti-cuts campaigners handed in petitions with over 2800 signatures against library and youth service closures.
Sarah Smith from Save Coventry Libraries said “This is a further sign of the massive opposition throughout Coventry to the council’s cuts agenda.”
Almost 800 people signed the “Stop Youth Club Closures” petition initiated by Bailey Evatt, one of the service users.

Coventry Council say they have to make cuts, but they don’t – they could use the £95million+ that they have in reserves to fund services to hold the line and buy time to build a campaign to get back the money that the Government has stolen from the people of Coventry.
