On this the 20th anniversary, educate yourselves

Following on from my blog yesterday I feel the need to inform as many people as possible of what happened on the day of Hillsborough, what happened subsequently and what continues to this day.

Many people are still unaware of the enormous miscarriage of justice that took place in the aftermath and the conspiracy to cover up any wrongdoing by South Yorkshire Police. There are guilty people out there, living comfortable lives whilst families cannot grieve properly for their lost loved ones.

Below is some stuff you should look at today, educate yourselves, become informed and join the fight for justice. It is a fight that has gone on these past 20 years without the intense media publicity of the last days and it will continue long after the media turn their attentions elsewhere. 

The club’s official TV channel is free to air all day and will have live coverage of the remembrance ceremony this afternoon.

The club’s official website has some moving survivors’ stories and Lynne Fox’s moving picture story

The Liverpool Daily Post has a must read story about the families ongoing fight for justice which outlines the extent to which they were and continue to be let down by the establishment. 

David Conn’s brilliant piece in Monday’s Guardian outlines even further how much the families have been let down and includes an interview with the current chief constable of South Yorkshire Police.

The BBC’s audio slideshow is not easy to watch but should be watched nonetheless. The website’s coverage features a wide range of video interviews with survivors, families, players, and more. 

If you think there’s anything else people should check out then leave a comment and link below.

Finally I cannot stress enough the importance of watching Jimmy McGovern’s ‘Hillsborough’ docu-drama  which is being re-screened on ITV 3 at 9pm tonight. If there’s one thing you watch on TV today it should be this. Educate yourself and then educate others.

Justice for the 96.

UPDATE: The Independent‘s James Lawton has also written a brilliant piece in today’s paper. We need more journalists exposing the sickening miscarriages of justice.
