James Larkin March, Liverpool July 2012

Published on Sun Aug 5, 2012 by

James Larkin Society of Liverpool march was themed this year for ‘working class unity against racism and fascism’. The march was subject of a great deal of controversy as various far-right groups have decided that it was an ‘IRA’ march. The James Larkin Society, led by the Liverpool Irish Patriots Republican Flute Band, gathered for the seventh occasion – this time outside the Globe pub on Park Road – to commemorate Larkin's contribution to trade unionism and the Labour movement. Alongside them were representatives from various trade unions and community groups in Merseyside. Various far-right groups had urged people to form a counter-demonstration, which at times tried to stop the march using sit down protests. About 25 people were arrested along the route, as each side exchanged abuse. March concluded with a rally at the Metropolitian Cathedral steps.
