Today’s the day! – Please support Britain’s national library, its museums and other heritage organisations by tweeting a selfie tagged #high5heritage and copying it to @prospectunion.
The Library and other organisations are threatened with cuts of up to 40% in the forthcoming Spending Review. Coming on top of the 30% inflicted between 2010 and 2015, this will do untold damage. It also makes no economic sense – for every pound invested, heritage organisations generate £5 in the UK economy.
The current government places great value on the creative industries, and we are asking friends and users of the BL to send a clear message to Treasury that this is inconsistent with further cuts. It’s easy! Just take your selfie (you don’t even need to show your face!) and tweet away.
Let’s get the message trending if we can!
