Justice

Imagine your loved ones killed on live TV.

Then blamed for their own death & worse in the national press.

Your mourning & requests for justice lead to you being pathologised.

Your city is pathologised because it campaigns for justice as a community.

But slowly the truth grows powerful and today, after 27 years, it breaks free.

You were right all along.

You were not mad; not from a city that wallows in self pity.

You simply wanted truth and justice to bring dignity in death for those you loved; and you sought this with the support of a city which retains a strong sense of community, loyalty and justice.

For this you were punished in the most cruel of ways by people with power and influence.

So, what now for the liars and the pathologisers?

  1. Thankyou so much for this Phil. The deaths of these fans were deemed unimportant by the powerful and in the press because of where they came from. The same thing is happening now, as the suffering and death of refugees is the basis for jokes and sneering on twitter. The fight goes on.
