Liverpool against the Cuts - photography from the march
Across Liverpool NUT, PCS, UCU and ATL trade unionist members walked out on strike. Schools, courts and jobcentres were among the services affected as public sector workers striked against proposed pension changes.
Later, there was a demonstration and march through the city centre by about 2000 supporters of the action - really colourful and enthusiastic set of banners and placards. Crowds were so large, that they couldn’t be accomodated in the original venue for the speakers, the Black-e, so the rally took place outside.
I was there as a freelance Liverpool based photographer and submitted images to a number of national press agencies.
