Just got back from this – not a bad turn-out, maybe 100 people. Police were actually pretty pleasant from what I could tell, got a little aggressive about use being on public property at the start but nothing remarkable.
We basically stood and chanted for about an hour, then left, nothing eventful since she’d apparently been in the hotel the whole day.
The only thing that riled me was that there were nearly as many people from the Manchester SU (who I went with) as there were from Liverpool! I realise the populations are different, but if Manchester can transport that many, where were the Liverpudlians?
Once the police had pushed us off the Liner Hotel’s property.
Placards and horses.
The placards were supplied by the SWP. The one on the right reads “get your rosaries off my ovaries” – great slogan.
Sorry the pictures are so blurry – not much light and being in the middle of a crowd makes it hard to frame a shot properly.Tags: abortion, activism, Ann Widdecombe, Liverpool, picketing, politics, protests
