Echo Letters, Friday 12th Oct: The Bigger Picture

LET’S hope when the proposed murals get done that the people of Liverpool who are lucky enough to learn from these Irish artists, go on to do more in their own communities. I'd love to see a big 'Justice for the Hillsborough 96' in Anfield, maybe if there's any paint left they could sort that out. I've e-mailed The Liverpool Mural Project and told them I'd love to be involved, The murals in Belfast represent the working class in Belfast from both communities. The murals they are hopefully going to produce here are going to involve the working class of Liverpool and inspire and brighten up all parts of Liverpool, not just the city centre.
Liverpool gets a chance to get a brilliant, historic project like this and all the associated media attention but risks losing it by not offering any funding. It is unbelievable. Jimmy Whitby, Old Swan

A song for Jimmy Whitby

Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on

Say you want a revolution
We better get on right away
Well you get on your feet
And out on the street

Singing power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on

A million workers working for nothing
You better give 'em what they really own
We got to put you down
When we come into town

Singing power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on

I gotta ask you comrades and brothers
How do you treat you own woman back home
She got to be herself
So she can free herself

Singing power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on
Now, now, now, now

Oh well, power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on

Yeah, power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on

Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people
Power to the people, right on
