A group organised a neo-nazi march in Liverpool today
Most people were pretty unhappy about this and two protest marches were also organised by some trade unions and the other by a group called the Anti Fascist Network.
The AFN were the more aggressive of the two and made their way into the station where the group were meeting and surrounded them chanting “Nazi scum – off our streets” and “Master race – you’re having a laugh”. They also threw bananas and water bottles at them.
There were over a hundred members of the AFN and around 10 neo-nazis. So they were prevented from even leaving the station and ended up being locked in the left luggage office by police for their own protection.
The march was cancelled.
Britain’s biggest Brazilian carnival hit Liverpool again this weekend.
I always really enjoy this night, the crowds and the drums lift the whole city.
This was also the first time I didn’t take my SLR, but used my new Fujiilm X-T10 instead. I’ve still got a lot to learn about using this little camera, but it packs a punch. I feel I would have got more with my familiar Canon, but my back isn’t up to carrying a heavy bag of gear at the moment.
I took the new camera out for a quick trial on the kite surfers off New Brighton. I’ve only used it a few times but I’m really impressed. Tonights test was how fast it shot and focussed and it was very fast on both counts.
It seems to be able to give my 7D a run for its money on frames per second if not burst rate but that might be down to the memory card.
Arrived yesterday. A shiny new silver Fujifilm X-T10 with XF 18-55 and 55-200mm lenses – (the first decent quality telephoto lens I’ve owned)
Had a quick run out with it last night. Pretty impressed with it so far although with no shooting mode dial, aperture rings and EVF its quite a bit different to anything I’ve used before.
