Hillsborough: The Struggle for Truth, Justice and Accountability
The Centre for the Study of Crime, Criminalisation and Social Exclusion: Critical Research Seminar Series
Speaker: Sheila Coleman, Hillsborough Justice Campaign
On April 26 2016, the inquest jury sitting in Warrington, concluded after two years of evidence, that the 96 fans who died at Hillsborough in 1989 had been unlawfully killed. The Centre for the Study of Crime, Criminalisation and Social Exclusion is delighted to welcome back Sheila Coleman, from the Hillsborough Justice Campaign. Sheila, and the Campaign, played a pivotal role in the demand for truth and justice stretching over 27 years. She will discuss the issues that arose from the campaign: questions of collusion, cover-ups and corruption, the impact on the bereaved and the question of survivors as forgotten victims. Sheila will also highlight ongoing issues regarding the role of the state in controlling the narrative and debates around social justice and bringing to account those responsible for the unlawful killing of the 96 fans.
We have received a lot of interest for this event and have therefore introduced reserve tickets. We anticipate however that those who have a reserve ticket will be able to access the event on the day so please do come along.
