2016: a photo diary

Photojournalist Steve Eason presents his year in pictures.

My 2016, in 38 chronological pictures, as a London-based lefty photographer contributing to rs21 and other websites.

The year of the Junior doctors strike, Corbyn-mania, far-right marches, The Panama Papers, Another Europe is Possible, Brexit, protests at Byron, Topshop and wildcat strikes at Deliveroo and Uber Eats. It felt like a year where most of the protests I attended were not, in practice, well-supported by the traditional organised left. The exception to this would be the Stand Up To Racism demonstrations. 

International solidarity was important in 2016 – I’ve included pictures marking the anniversary of the Syrian revolution, in support of the HDP in Turkey, and protesting the fall of Aleppo.
