Campaigns - boycott to minute's silence

Since forming, as a proactive collection of Hillsborough families, survivors and supporters in Feb 1998, the Campaign has struggled to bring Hillsborough and the continued lack of justice back into the public domain on many occassions.

Many people are aware that all clubs now observe a minutes silence on 15th April following the group's letter campaign. In this section you can read on this and other successes the group has acheived, as well as ongoing activites.

Jmac's speech in Stanely Park

"I've been asked to say a few words today on behalf of the many regular contributors to the RAOTL forum whose idea this meeting was. Many of them can't physically be here today but I'm sure they're with us in spirit and I'm sure we all support their call that the fight for Justice should continue.

In the immediate aftermath of the trial in Leeds the forum was swamped with messages ranging from shock and disbelief at the verdict, through to downright anger at the way in which Justice Hooper was allowed to quite blatantly interfere with the jury. His disgraceful directions to them, as they considered their verdict, to take into account what effect a guilty verdict might have on people working in the emergency services made it virtually impossible for them to convict Duckenfield. And yet they found it impossible to acquit him. Even with the bias from Hooper during the trial the jury couldn't acquit Duckenfield. He's guilty. You know it, they knew it and he knows it.

Trevor Hicks might say that the trial has "shown the establishment that nobody, not even senior police officers, are above the law." But they are. This trial proved it. They got away with it. Again.

That's what made the forum members and readers of RAOTL so angry. And that's why the fight for Justice must continue - nobody has yet been held to account for the deaths of 96 innocent men, women and children.

We've all kept a respectful - and 'legally enforced' - silence for months now for fear that anything we say or do being used by the judge, or the defence, to discredit the case. Now is the time to pick up the campaign again and make some noise to let people know that we're not going to go away - not until Justice is done.

I'm also speaking to you today as an ordinary Liverpool supporter. That's what we are on the RAOTL forum - we're not HJC campaigners or activists, not bereaved families or so-called 'political militants' - just ordinary fans from all over the world united by a burning grievance for Justice.

We all know the truth, that's why were all here today, we've all got to fight to make sure that the rest of the world knows it too."
