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.
