The petition is regarding the government trying to block the release of documents regarding the tragedy of 1989 when 96 Liverpool fans lost their lifes watching the team they loved.
If there was nothing in those papers to hide then they quite simply would be released but the fact that the government are trying to block them indicates to me that something within those papers shifts the blame from the Liverpool supporters onto either the South Yorkshire police or the government itself.
The e-petition can be found at the link below and please i hope everyone signs this and we can stop the government trying to block the release of the papers.

For more information regarding the events of Hillsbrough they are covered far better then me at places such as http://www.contrast.org/hillsborough/index.shtml.
Anyone who visits my blog should visit that website as the information regarding the disaster and ways in which you can help can all be found there.
After that fateful day the families of the Liverpool fans were in shock and were grieving the loss of their loved ones yet they had to read lies from The Sun newspaper claiming that the Liverpool fans were drunk and were robbing from the dead.
These claims were unfounded and had no truth in them whatsoever yet not once since have The Sun apologised.
The problem is the reputation of Liverpool FC and its fans had been tarnished due to the Heysel stadium disaster so the general public believed what they were reading and even to this day people do not know the truth of what happened and still believe that article The Sun printed.
