Around 2,000 protesters marched on the Liberal Democrats’ conference in Liverpool last Sunday.

The rally, called by the North West TUC, saw local unions turn out to protest at the Tory-Liberal coalition’s cuts.

Union leaders Tony Woodley of Unite and Dave Prentis of Unison joined the protest.

There were also speakers from the NUT, NASUWT, ATL, PCS and GMB unions, as well as the TUC.

Disgracefully the police banned the demonstration from getting too near the conference
