Resident groups march and protest in Liverpool against the bedroom tax

Published on Fri Apr 5, 2013 by

Hundreds of grassroots residents groups from all over Bootle, Sefton, Liverpool & Merseyside marched for the first time together to fight against the bedroom tax and public service cuts. They converged in the city centre for a well attended rally.

Two groups, one from north Liverpool and Bootle and the second from south Liverpool marched to St George's Hall in Liverpool city centre to hear community and resident speakers. Approximately 500 people gathered under the Wellington Monument to hear personal stories about how the bedroom tax will effect individuals. Chants of 'Can't pay, won't pay' came from the crowd and many people had made banners and signs. North Liverpool and Bootle campaign groups met at Great Homer Street market while the South Liverpool anti-bedroom tax groups marched from the Victoria monument in Derby Square, to St George's Plateaux.

Presentation at Digifest 2021 Festival, Durban, South Africa

A couple of weeks ago I was honoured to be asked to present and exhibit some of my artworks at the “Unmasked” Digifest and annual research conference 2021, based in Durban, South Africa

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
