Hillsborough – From The Militant 1989

50,000 signatures on petitions were delivered by Terry Fields and others from Liverpool to Downing Street protesting against The Sun’s vile reporting of the Hillsborough disaster. The gutter reporting of The Sun led to a boycott in Liverpool, and to this day its sales have still not recovered. The city of Liverpool was traumatised by the dreadful Hillsborough disaster. Commenting on the numbers who perished, Militant said:

They died because of a system that puts greed before safety. The working class of Liverpool and Britain demand: “Never again”. There must be no cover up. Those responsible must be made to take the blame. Tory minsters try to deflect criticism by hypocritically joining the mourning. Disgustingly, an anonymous police officer tried to blame the fans… Football is a profitable business.
