I haven't covered any street protests for a while but had heard good things about an action in the city centre and wanted to check it out. It was an anti Tory street rave and the plan was to install a mobile soundsystem in Church Street.
Saturday shoppers were greeted with bumping baselines as ravers and revelers staged the latest protest against Boris Johnson's Conservative Party government. Announced via a Facebook page, the protest wasn't in any way secret but many passers-by seemed surprised by the lively group of young people dancing and chanting anti-Tory slogans.
Fuck The Tories Street Rave #2 - Saturday 8th February 2020. Church Street, Liverpool.

In between meetings I met business man Will and got a few classic portraits on the waterfront and of course the iconic Pierhead. So if you doing business in Liverpool, need some quick but quality coverage of your time here, drop me a message.
In 2006 I was contacted by a design agency here on Merseyside to help them photograph their forthcoming debut album cover. Exciting times !
If you need last minute coverage of a speaker, a meeting, debate session, protest, fringe event or anything connected with the Labour Party conference Sunday 08 to Wednesday 11 October 2023 I might be able to help.
