Liverpool ECHO | Hillsborough: Families’ justice battle to help Government ‘learn’ from past

The Hillsborough families’ battle for justice will be outlined in a new report drawn up to help the Government learn from their harrowing experiences.

Led by the Right Reverend Bishop James Jones, who oversaw the landmark Hillsborough Independent Panel, the study will focus on the families’ perspective of events since the tragedy.

Plans for the report were announced following last year’s inquest verdicts and took a step forward today with the publication of the study’s terms of reference.

Then Home Secretary Theresa May revealed the proposals after jurors ruled the 96 Liverpool fans who lost their lives as a result of the disaster were unlawfully killed.

33rd ‘Stay Put’ Sewol Silent Protest in London

Monday 9th of January 2017 marked the 1000th day since the Sewol ferry disaster in South Korea that claimed 304 lives, mostly children. The Korean government have blocked a thorough inquiry. President Park Geun Hye proved herself to be a heartless and inept leader and is now facing impeachment on corruption charges.

Monthly silent protest is to remember the Sewol victims, demand Korean government to raise the Sewol ferry without dismantling for a thorough inquiry and recover all missing victims; to punish those responsible; and to enact special anti-disaster regulations.

Global Actions for Sewol 1000th Day

The global community is putting their actions together to commemorate the 1000th day since the Sewol Ferry Disaster on 16th April 2014.

Nearly three years have passed but no independent and transparent inquest was carried out to date. Park Guen-hye’s government did not hide their desire to end the enquiry into the disaster as quickly as possible with taking as little responsibility as possible or none.  Continue reading “Global Actions for Sewol 1000th Day”

Announcement | Date for January 2017 protest

The monthly silent protest is normally on the third Saturday of each month to

  • remember the Sewol victims;
  • demand Korean government to raise the Sewol ferry without dismantling for a thorough inquiry and recover all missing victims;
  • punish those responsible; and
  • enact special anti-disaster regulations.

However, 9th January 2017 is the 1000th day since the Sewol Ferry Disaster, so we are moving the date forwards to 14th January 2017 as this is closer to that date.

On 9th January 2017, Birkbeck International Documentary Society will screen “SEWOL” documentary to mark the 1000th day.

The meeting point is North Terrace, Trafalgar Square North (in front of National Gallery).
