Jutice rather than ?injustice will be on ?everyone’s mind for the first time in 24 years at ?tomorrow’s annual ?memorial service for the 96 victims of the Hillsborough disaster.
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, ?managing director Ian Ayre and all the club’s players and staff will join Hillsborough ?families, survivors and thousands of supporters at the Anfield service.
The Reds' principal owner John Henry is ?expected to give a reading.
The independent panel’s report into the 1989 ?tragedy, published in September, finally exonerated ?Liverpool fans and laid the blame for the day’s events at the door of the police, and subsequently the ?government for covering up the facts.
Later this month, a ?hearing will be held in London to decide the parameters for a new inquest for the ?victims.
Hillsborough Families Support Group chairman Margaret ?Aspinall said: “I think it will be the first service we’ve had in the 24 years that we actually feel we have moved forward on everything.
“From September 12 when the truth came out, and the inquest verdicts were subsequently quashed, it is the first time we have felt we haven’t taken a step backwards.
“There are still the idiots who do not realise [about the truth] – you will always get that – but it has changed a lot of people’s perception about Hillsborough.”
Sheila Coleman, ?spokesperson for the Hillsborough Justice ?Campaign, added: “All the other anniversaries have been shrouded with the lies and cover-ups.
“That is not to say the fight is over because the fight for accountability carries on.”
