Default Occupy Liverpool Tinlings building - January 2012 - 24-01-2012, 17:32

Visited with Jay, Amyrumi, Blober and vicki

I'd been trying to get in here and on this roof for a few days now. In the end all it came down to was a big please from a girl. The guys here have every right to be wary of photographers I guess. After all, the press, as always is the case with anything controversial have portrayed the cause in a negative light. The views from the roof are not exactly the best in the city, but I was pleased to be up there and and chatting to a few of the occupy lads to try and understand what they are standing for and how exactly they mean to achieve it.

The BBC:

" A group of protesters from Occupy Liverpool has taken over an empty city centre building.The protesters, who were camped on St George's Plateau, occupied Tinlings Building on the corner of Crosshall Street and Victoria Street on Sunday.One of the group, James Adams, said they would stay "as long as possible". Merseyside Police said patrols were giving the area "passing attention" to ensure there was no disruption to traffic or pedestrians.Mr Adams said: "There are about 20 of us in here."We're here for an occupation and at the moment we are trying to make the place more liveable and communal."
