On April 15th, 1989, 96 Liverpool supporters lost their lives at the FA Cup semi-final against Nottingham Forest at Hillsborough Stadium. Reds across the world unite today, the 23nd anniversary of the disaster, to remember the lives lost, the impact the disaster has had on the club, and the continued fight for justice.

This is essentially a combination of posts I've run the last couple years, and tt's been a busy year in the continued fight for justice. For those new to the club or unfamiliar with what happened at Hillsborough and the ongoing campaign, here's a few useful links by way of introduction:

Don't Buy the Sun

The official website offers special tributes and viewings throughout the day, capped by the annual service at Anfield. If you haven't taken the time out in years past to watch, it's well worth making a point to do so. They've got excellent content throughout the website, as do many of the Liverpool-focused sites across the internet.

It's a difficult day for Liverpool and its supporters, particularly the families and loved ones of those that lost their lives. But it's also a day of great pride in the strength of the bonds that have been created in a football club that does so much for its members and supporters, both on and off the pitch. You'll Never Walk Alone is always meaningful for Liverpool supporters, but every year on this date it means even more.

First the videos we've thankfully been able to run for the past few years, and then the full list of the 96.
