Lockdown Livestream: Information in the post-truth era

15 November 2021, 7:30 pm - 8:15 pm

In this week’s  Lockdown Livestream, Glasgow Loves EU are talking to New York activist Lawyer Michael White about access to objective information via libraries and media in the post-truth era.

Michael played an active role in defending New York public libraries from closure


“We say libraries represent democracy. They represent opportunity, a place where everybody is treated the same. What we see is that when we’re taking libraries away, it’s not for the benefit of everybody, it’s for the benefit of a few. And that’s contributing to a spiral, where it’s not just wealth inequality, it’s political inequality. Fewer libraries means less equality and less political equality.”
