Anti-racist gig in Liverpool

Issue No. 1975

Over 1,200 people packed into the Liverpool Academy on Thursday of last week for a tribute gig organised by Love Music Hate Racism for Anthony Walker, the black teenager murdered by racists in July.

The audience was treated to great performances from headliner Ms Dynamite and many other acts.

The entire Walker family was in attendance and was delighted with the turnout and tone of the event.

The crowd was young and very mixed — the real face of multicultural Liverpool.

Speakers included Billy Hayes of the CWU union, Siobhan Endean, national equality officer of Amicus, and Paul O’Connor, north west regional official for the PCS.

All three unions generously sponsored the event.
