Against Thatcher: David Sinclair Documents Student Strikes in Liverpool

Themed Collections

05 October 2017

Posted by Julie Bonzon

In 1985, Walton photographer David Sinclair documented the anti-Thatcher protests in Liverpool. While economic inequalities and youth unemployment spread across the country, Liverpool Militant Labour Council appeared as an alternative against Margaret Thatcher’s Youth Training Scheme. Fighting for their rights, 30’000 young people and children stood up and marched through the safeguarded streets. Smiling and laughing, facing straight to the camera, school students walked alongside each other, gathered in public, official spaces, and spoke out with pride. David Sinclair’s powerful black and white images witness the power of youth movements, as well as unprecedented changes in the political history of the country.
