N30 public sector strike and rally in Liverpool
In Liverpool, picket lines were in place outside the vast majority of public buildings in the city centre. These included the Town Hall, the central council offices, schools, colleges and universities. All the ferry and tunnel services were closed and over 15 000 people marched through the city centre and were applauded by members of the general public in the shopping district. At a rally at St Georges Hall, the crowds were addresses by trade union leaders, student representatives and the National Pensioners Organisation. Martin Kelsey (Home Office North West and a member of the PCS North West Regional Committee) hosted the speakers and provided some final words to close before some live music was played as the crowd dispersed.
