We still need help to continue the legal struggle, some survivors of the disaster may be able to assist as witnesses in up coming court cases. There are many other ways you can help us and we can help with school projects, research etc.

Miscarriages of Justice Organisation
The founder of this organisation is Paddy Joe Hill, one of six men who collectively became known as 'The Birmingham Six'. Having been convicted of carrying out the bombings of pubs in Birmingham, Paddy spent more than sixteen years in prison before being released together with the others. The case of the Birmingham six ranks alongside the Guildford four and the Maguire seven as one of the most notorious miscarriages of justice in Britain in the last century. Paddy came out of the court of appeal shouting loudly about others he had met in prison who were also victims of miscarriages of justice - and he has been shouting ever since. He continues to travel the length and breath of the country visiting prisoners and fighting their cases. He is well qualified as an advocate given his own nightmare experience. The obstacles placed in his way of progressing this organisation have been immense but he continues to gather around him a team of committed volunteers to work with him. MOJO is the voice of the unheard innocents languishing in British prisons.
This organisation was established in 1981 with the aim of reforming the inquest system. It has played, and continues to play, a key role in supporting families through the inquest procedure. It has been a prime mover in highlighting deaths in police custody. Advice and support are free and they continue to draw on the services of a committed group of campaigning lawyers.
This is without a doubt an amazing web site covering a vast array of subjects, all of social relevance. It is controversial, original, innovative and extremely well written. It is also, in parts, very funny. The site supports the Hillsborough Justice Campaign and writes in depth on the Hillsborough Disaster. It also contains a sensitive memorial to a number of people who have died that were involved in the HJC's fight for justice. Long may it continue.
The Pat Finucane Campaign
A few months before the Hillsborough Disaster, solicitor Pat Finucane was shot dead in front of his wife and children in his home. A loyalist death squad in collusion with British Security Forces murdered him. Like Hillsborough families his family has fought for fifteen years to have the perpetrators of this crime brought to justice. Like Hillsborough families they are still waiting...
Kick Racism Out Of Football
The Hillsborough Justice Campaign supports the 'Kick it Out ' Campaign. This organisation was founded in 1993 and aims to challenge every aspect of racism in football. It focuses on football, education, and community sectors to challenge racism. The HJC shop has badges and information leaflets free of charge and we are proud to wear our 'kick it out' t-shirts.
Bloody Sunday Campaign
This site highlights the role of the Bloody Sunday Trust in respect of informing and educating people about the true facts of what happened on Bloody Sunday.
A very graphic site which details the long 32 years of struggle faced by Bloody Sunday families in their fight for justice from the cover up of the initial Widgery Inquiry to the present Saville Inquiry. These people are truly inspirational to any group involved in a long, drawn out justice campaign such as the Hillsborough Justice Campaign.
