Love Lane Lives

The history of sugar in Liverpool and the effects of the closure of the Tate & Lyle sugar refinery, Love Lane

The Girls & Boys from the Whitestuff

The Blue Turban Ladies of the Tate closure protests

"The remarkable thing about this project was not just sugar, an extraordinary but much taken for granted commodity but the extraordinary lives of ordinary refinery workers... This project has lots of historical curiosity value but it has wider ramifications for ongoing debates on the politics of food and globalization. It's also a vital record of the people who struggled against a major multinational to protect not just their own livelihoods but a whole community."

THE FILM was once an integral part of the website, it’s genesis in fact but somehow it’s been LOST in the transfer over of files.

The film is still on VIMEO so hopefully people will be able still to view it and when the site is revamped then it will be once again AN INTEGRAL and definitive aspect of the LOVE LANE LIVES PROJECT.
