Action in Lambeth

Submitted by Matthew on 9 February, 2011 - 2:47

Around 300 people took part in direct action against Lambeth Council organised by the Save Our Services campaign on 7 February.

The actions included an intervention at a council meeting and blocking a major traffic interchange, and mobilised workers and community activists from across the borough.

Only one Labour councillor, Kingsley Abrams, spoke out against the cuts, prompting council leader Steve Reed to call him a “disgrace”. When Reed’s comments drew an outcry from the public gallery, the police were called, but were forced to beat a hasty retreat.
