The reason we are here....

Hillsborough: The Lies End

On the other, today was a validation, of sorts. It shows that if you fight hard enough for something worth fighting for, and if you refuse to accept the scorn of those you know to be wrong, then you can drag the facts into the light.

That it happened is a tragedy, that it took so long to get to where we are today is a travesty, but that a group of ordinary people can be made extraordinary by their desire to right a wrong, and can expose the self-interested and self-serving liars for what they are, is a victory of immense significance.

It is a victory that we cannot help but respect, even as we acknowledge that it pales to nothing when set alongside the horror of both what happened, and what happened afterwards.

The last word goes to Margaret Aspinall, chair of the Hillsborough Families Support Group. "The 96 rest in peace for the first time."

The reason we are here...only the names change.

We CAN do it

From the 'Messages' thread...

There is a saying about evil - "the only thing that is needed for evil to triumph is for good men to remain silent".

In my opinion, the difference is that the Hillsborough victims had families fighting for the justice of their dead children, spouses etc whereas the ones fighting in Madeleine's case are her parents who want to silence and financially ruin those who are seeking justice for a little girl none of us even knew.

Go figure.

The blatant injustice and corruption in this case is what keeps me here.
