MAYORAL STATEMENT: Arms fair protest

Mayor Joanne Anderson’s response to the dispersal zone introduced by Merseyside Police in the area where the electronic warfare event is being held on the waterfront...

I support the right of people to protest against the arms fair.

I have received clarification that the dispersal zone does not prevent people from gathering at the agreed protest point to voice their objections.

I am a pacifist and do not support this event but, as I have said previously, neither I nor Liverpool City Council have the power to stop it.
