Fuck The Tories Street Rave #2 - protest in Liverpool city centre

Published on Fri Feb 14, 2020 by

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.
