Thousands March in Liverpool for Fair Funding for Public Services

 S

Public service users and workers united in Liverpool on Saturday to call for fair funding for public services. 

There was a great turnout of UNISON members, with branch banners from across the region and from different service groups in evidence. 

The rally at St George’s Plateau heard speakers from UNISON, Unite, PCS, NUT and the TUC. 

A minute’s silence was held for both Bob Crow and Tony Benn – two giants of the labour movement who we very sadly lost last week. 

Police and organisers estimate that around 3,000 people took part in the march and rally.
