It’s 32 years since 96 men, women, and children died at an FA Cup semi-final on 15 April 1989.

It became known as the Hillsborough disaster.

The tragedy would come to symbolize Thatcher-era Britain – a byword for class war, corruption and gutter press lies.

All of those who died that day were Liverpool fans.

In the aftermath, the right-wing gutter press and other sections of the British establishment launched a war of slander and obfuscation against the city and its people.

This included false accusations that fans had tried to steal from those who lay injured and dying.

And that a police officer trying to administer first aid was beaten up.

But the 2012 Hillsborough report laid to rest many establishment lies.

Because it found that crowd management plans had been inadequate and too focused on potential fan disorder.

It was also discovered that South Yorkshire police (SYP) and police lawyers had altered initial statements:

Some 116 of the 164 statements identified for substantive amendment were amended to remove or alter comments unfavourable to SYP

The report said that many of the worst headlines about the disaster, such as drunken violence by fans, had emerged from the police and a local MP, but that the claims were not borne out by the evidence:

Yet, from the mass of documents, television and CCTV coverage disclosed to the panel there is no evidence to support these allegations other than a few isolated examples of aggressive or verbally abusive behaviour clearly reflecting frustration and desperation.

Margaret Aspinall, the chair of the recently disbanded Hillsborough Family Support Group, recently spoke to the Liverpool Echo.

Her son James died at Hillsborough, and she urged families to “stay strong” and said that her “thoughts go out to all of the families and survivors”.

32 years ago today, 96 children, women and men lost their lives at Hillsborough.

Our thoughts, as always, are with all those affected by the tragedy at Hillsborough and the 96 fans who will never be forgotten.

You'll Never Walk Alone.

In 2016, an inquest ruled that the 96 had been unlawfully killed.

Yet in 2019, a court ruled that the police commander David Duckenfield was not guilty of gross negligence.

As The Canary reported at the time, the daughter of one victim told the judge:

With all due respect, my lord, 96 people were found unlawfully killed to a criminal standard.

I would like to know who is responsible for my father’s death because someone is.

In January 2021, it was reported that two police officers and a solicitor would face trial in relation to the Hillsborough disaster.

According to the Liverpool Echo, each will “face a charge of doing acts with intent to pervert the course of public justice”.

For the Hillsborough families, justice has not yet been delivered.

We stand in solidarity with them today.

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast.

And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout.

But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives.

We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down.

And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?

Get Chris Errington’s exclusive behind-the-scenes take on life at Argyle in his weekly Inside Home Park newsletter

Plymouth Argyle manager Ryan Lowe has admitted the 32nd anniversary of the Hillsborough Disaster today is an emotional time for him and his fellow Liverpool fans around the world.

It was on April 15, 1989 when 96 men, women and children lost their lives at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest.

Lowe was a 10-year-old Liverpool fan at the game, which was played at the neutral venue of Sheffield Wednesday’s home ground, accompanying his father and other family members.

The fans who tragically died were crushed on the terrace at the Leppings Lane End of Hillsborough, with Lowe in another part of the stadium.

It remains one of the darkest days in English football history, and the anniversary is marked with great solemnity every year

Lowe said: “It means a lot to the football club and I think to all the fans around the world.

“It certainly means a lot to me.

It’s an emotional day really.

I was there actually, 10 years of age, in the other stand at Sheffield Wednesday.

“It’s tough every year.

They have had justice along the way.

“What Liverpool Football Club have done, and their fans and the families who lost their loved ones, has been nothing but a miracle to keep going and keep fighting.

“That’s obviously why you always see Justice for the 96 on the signs and the banners.”

When asked about his memories of the day, Lowe replied: “Not nice, it’s just flashbacks.

“They are not nice at all.

When something wasn’t right we then went (left the ground).”

Lowe added: “Today is a very emotional day for me and especially all the Liverpool fans out there and the football club.”

Argyle supporters were able to pay their respects to those who lost their lives at Hillsborough when their club played a FA Cup third round tie at Anfield in January 2017.

Many of the travelling Green Army stood and paused for a few moments by the Hillsborough Disaster memorial outside the stadium.

Lowe said: “When you go there and you look at it, and you stand there, it’s gut-wrenching, it’s heart-breaking really.

“You are thinking all them people went to a football match and never returned home.

“That shouldn’t happen anywhere in life, let alone football.

So, yeah, sadly missed, think about them all the time – and so do Liverpool Football Club."

A statement from Liverpool today read: "Liverpool Football Club remembers the 96 supporters who died at Hillsborough, on the 32nd anniversary of the disaster.

"As a result of the events on April 15, 1989, at the FA Cup semi-final between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest, 96 children, women and men lost their lives.

"For more than three decades, the bereaved families and survivors of the tragedy have demonstrated remarkable courage, dignity and resilience.

"In April 2016, an inquest jury concluded that the 96 were unlawfully killed and that no role was played by the supporters in causing the disaster.

"Our thoughts, as always, are with all those affected by the tragedy at Hillsborough and the 96 fans who will never be forgotten."
