Between October 1st-5th 2015, We Shall Overcome Liverpool organised a series of gigs at various venues throughout Liverpool with the aim of showing solidarity and offering practical help to those affected by austerity policies; many supporting local foodbanks and other projects designed to get help directly to people in need. These gigs were arranged under the nationwide We Shall Overcome banner, which saw over 250 gigs taking place across the UK over the course of the weekend.
