UK Uncut in Liverpool - a day of action and protest

Published on Tue Jan 10, 2012 by

UK Uncut activists visited a series of shops in Liverpool city centre. The aim was to protest against cuts to public services; they argued cuts would be unnecessary if corporations did not employ massive tax avoidance policies. First up was an occupation and protest outside of the HSBC Bank on Lord Street, which closed the branch for two hours. Then the group moved and occupied Top Shop, where security closed the store and the peaceful protesters sang songs, making their point heard and left after 20 minutes. Finally, there was a whistle stop tour through the Liverpool One shopping area, stopping briefly at Vodafone, NatWest Bank, before a small celebration of conga dancing in the aisles of Tescos on Bold Street.

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
