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.

Stevie Dooling - survivor

On the 15th April, 1989 at Hillsborough (Sheffield Wednesday's ground) a nightmare unfolded before 80,000 eyes. A catastophe more like it, onealmighty cock up that the establishment is still trying to cover up. 96 fans were killed make no mistake about that, hundreds more were injured physically, then later, mentally which no one was warned about (no wonder).

South Yorkshire Police blamed us, the scum press blamed us, killer/liar Duckinfield blamed us, he was the chief superintendent of the S.Y.P. murder squad, lies, lies and more bastard lies they stated. Later on a judge called Taylor branded every member, above sergeant, of the murderous squad as 'liars'.

I don't want to go into what didn't happen because every sensible person knows what happened at Hillsborough.

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (P.T.S.D.) it's called, fucked me like hundreds of others. I wish I'd never heard of it, you wouldn't wish it on your worst enemy, honest to God. Stress, tension, guilt, sleepless nights, Hari Kari, they're all there. I've been in some hidings, cars wacking into you, machete in the back of the head in France on our way back from Rome 77, after a barney in Tournous.

But nothing as bad as P.T.S.D. They opened a Hillsborough Centre in Stanley Park, where sadly we met, your head was in a different planet but we all stood and helped each other, those we could anyway. At least a dozen survivors sadly, didn't make it, they topped themselves.

Life went on (but not as we know it).

In March,1998 the Hillsborough Justice Campaign was formed, made up of bereaved families survivors and supporters, great people who wanted to help. The group has had it's ups and downs, the boycott is on, the boycott is off, in the end a massive 95% of Reds DID boycott the match no thanks to traitors Hicks and Adlington.

Survivors are still fighting, the shop is like the Hillsborough Centre we stand hand in hand with each other and fighting together (or even arguing if we disagree). But no matter what happens we stand and fight together, that's the Hillsborough Justice Campaign.

Let Sheff Wed, South Yorkshire Police and all other doubters be warned - We're going nowhere until we win and get Justice for those who can't. We've lost a few more fighters over the years, but the Justice Campaign gets stronger.
