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.

Back on the blog with a quick update on recent business and commercial photography commissions. Working with a housing association, a bike charity, a medical society, a recruitment agency and a dental practice.
A really interesting commission working with Livv Housing documenting a fire and rescue exercise in high-rise residential apartments in Kirkby. These are the people who will literally save your life!
Another Liverpool industrial photography commission under the belt and more hi-viz PPE added to the boot of the car. This time nice and local in the Old Swan, a couple of miles away from home. It was for the Lister Drive Greener Grid Park installation which is currently under construction.
