    Default School kids on strike, mid 80's

    Hello folks, i'm wondering if you could help me? I'm trying to find some photo's or information of a demonstration what happened in the mid 80's in Liverpool. The difference was the demonstration was by children, a sort of "school strike" I think it was in protest at cutbacks in the education budget. All of the kids (myself included) gathered at St. Georges Hall for a rally and marched to the Pier Head.
    Any info would be gratefully recieved, thanks in advance.
    Chris.

    I don't know if it's the same one but there was a 'school strike' in 1985 and there's a photo set on Flickr:

    I started a school strike after a teacher made us all get undressed into our sport kits. He then questioned every kid who never had his kit and then he told us all to get dressed again as the lesson was over.
    So I decided to stage a strike. After the lunchtime bell went for us all to march back to class over 70 of us young scallies stayed in the yard and started a chant. "N.S.U-No School Uniforms". Then within a few seconds the headmaster appeared. Sixty five or so of the lads ran in leaving five of us.
    The head shouted "Get in now",we looked and mumbled at each other and didn't move. "You're all suspended,get to my office". We decided to go with that as a few legit days off school sounded good.
    So we got our letters to give to our parents and then went to the lower school and terrorised the teachers there,Knocking on doors and windows and being a general nuiscance.
    Oh the good old days.
