Tuesday 15th April 2008 will be the nineteenth anniversary of the disaster at Hillsborough in Sheffield that cost of our 96 fellow fans their lives.
A memorial service has been arranged to mark the occasion and to remember those who died.
Please meet outside the Hillsborough Justice Campaign shop [opposite The Albert] between 13:45 and 14:00 and join us in our walk to the memorial.
The service will be inter-denominational and will take place on the Spion Kop at Anfield. It will commence at 2.45pm, include a minute’s silence at 3.06pm and conclude at about 3.30pm with the singing of ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’.
Tickets are not required and we extend an open invitation to you to join the families, survivors, the Directors, officials and players of LFC plus thousands of fellow football fans in our annual act of remembrance.
This year is expected to be very well attended and we would ask that you allow adequate time and plan to be in your seats as soon as possible.
The Hillsborough Justice Campaign remains solidly committed to supporting the fight for justice in whatever form that may take. Justice for the 96 will always remain as the fundamental aim of the campaign. However, we at the HJC also acknowledge the need for justice for the survivors of Hillsborough. We acknowledge the depth of suffering that so many have experienced for nineteen long years. We also acknowledge those who could no longer take that suffering and ended their lives tragically. We would ask you to add them and their families to your thoughts and prayers everyday.
In their name and in their memory 96 candles still burn bright.

Sobering to think that this was 19 years ago and yet those heartrending scenes are still fresh in the memory. Turbulent times right now for our club pale into insignificance at the scale of the loss of loved ones in such circumstances. In being at one with those grieving families I also remember the support and sympathies of those outside of and even of rival clubs, Evertonians in particular. The emotional occasion at Anfield this season when Z-cars theme was played and Rafa’s embrace of another grieving mother also attest to the spirit these tragedies should reinforce in us. RIP YNWA
