Earlier at the old swimming baths site on Lodge Lane, Liverpool 8, locals gathered at a peaceful vigil to campaign against all the hostilities and horrors currently happening in Yemen.
At the vigil an Arabic peaceful song was played. Flags were put up and banners in Arabic and English were displayed. Young and old alike attended.
Two Councillors and an MP gave up their time out of their busy schedules to attend the hour long vigil. MP Stephen Twigg Labour politician for West Derby, Cllr Steve Munby, Labour Cabinet Member for Neighborhoods and Cllr for Riverside Ward and also Cllr Anna Rothery Labour representing Princes Park Ward gave short talks to the crowd in attendance. A local girl also came up and recited her “work in progress” poem to the people.
