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.

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).

BBC | Hillsborough campaigner Phil Scraton refuses OBE

Hillsborough campaigner Phil Scraton refuses OBE, explaining that successive governments had blocked the families’ quest for justice, and that he can not accept an award associated by name with imperialism.

“I could not receive an honour on the recommendation of those who remained unresponsive to the determined efforts of bereaved families and survivors to secure truth and justice.”
