National Strike, Derby, 30th November 2011

Hundreds of thousands took to the streets across Britain in the biggest strike for over 30 years.
In Derby around a thousand took part in a march through the city.

The Tory led government are trying to alter pension agreements for public sector workers. This will mean paying more and working longer for less. We see the bankers yet again being awarded large bonuses, and the top earners in the city getting pay rises on average of 49% in the last year, yet the public sector have a pay freeze that still has two years to go, and then will only get a 1% rise in each of the next two years. It’s hardly surprising they want to protect their pensions. Surely everyone should have a decent pension when they finally retire.
There is a real anger that those who caused the global financial crisis are getting away with it, yet the people least to blame are having to pay.

About PurpleT

Much of my photography is art and documentary. I try to capture a scene as i see it in my mind, whether that be black and white, colour, or somewhere in between. I try to make an interesting, and/or attractive image from what i see around me, not just what would be expected, but also subjects that would be seen boring, mundane, or ugly by many. But they all have an interest as art photography. I have also spent nearly twenty years working as a life model, then the human figure in art is very important to me, and is something i try to bring into my work at times.
