Resident groups march and protest in Liverpool against the bedroom tax
Hundreds of grassroots residents groups from all over Bootle, Sefton, Liverpool & Merseyside marched for the first time together to fight against the bedroom tax and public service cuts. They converged in the city centre for a well attended rally.
Two groups, one from north Liverpool and Bootle and the second from south Liverpool marched to St George’s Hall in Liverpool city centre to hear community and resident speakers. Approximately 500 people gathered under the Wellington Monument to hear personal stories about how the bedroom tax will effect individuals. Chants of ‘Can’t pay, won’t pay’ came from the crowd and many people had made banners and signs. North Liverpool and Bootle campaign groups met at Great Homer Street market while the South Liverpool anti-bedroom tax groups marched from the Victoria monument in Derby Square, to St George’s Plateaux.
