In pictures: Anti-austerity protest in Lincoln

#ProtestLincs: An anti cuts and pro election reform protest took place on the streets of Lincoln on Saturday, May 16.

A group demonstration against austerity and the lack of electoral reform took place on Lincoln High Street on Saturday, May 16.

The left-wing group met near the War Memorial on the High Street, calling for a fairer electoral system, an end to austerity and “a democracy that serves its people”.

The event was primarily organised by Green Party activist Natalie Willetts, and is the first to come under the banner of ProtestLincs.

She stated previously: “The people are scared and we don’t want to be ignored any longer. This is why I created ProtestLincs, to gather the people who are worried or scared and let them know that they do matter and that they are not alone.”

A number of similiar protests were also held across the country today, including in Sheffield and Cardiff.
