Have you made the effort to tell Tom & George that they are not welcome anywhere? If not then take a moment to help make a difference.
On the Sunday 4th July 12pm the Spirit of Shankly (SOS) are holding an Independence Day Rally on St George’s Hall Plateau, to talk about plans for independence from the American ownership of Tom Hicks and George Gillett. As fans grow increasingly angry at their lies and false promises, and the Club continues to lurch along, the SOS will be talking about how we can all plan to ensure the Club’s future.
The line up for the rally includes addresses by, Karen Gill – Bill Shankly’s granddaughter and Spirit Of Shankly patron, John Aldridge – Liverpool legend and Share Liverpool board member, Steve Rotheram – MP for Walton and former Lord Mayor of Liverpool, Neil Fitzmaurice – Actor and star of One Night in Istanbul, John Bishop – Comedian and Spirit Of Shankly representatives who will issue our Declaration of Independence. There will be live music from Ian McNabb (Icicle Works), John Power (Cast and The La’s), Peter Hooton (The Farm), John O’Connell (Groundpig), Pete Wylie (The Wah!) and the Sons of Anfield.
The day is for everyone, of all generations, to come together and hear how we can protect our Club and its future. They will be talking about Supporter Ownership and how plans for a Credit Union fit with these objectives. Ongoing discussions with Partner’s Credit Union will seek to formalise a relationship allowing all members and fans, a protected, affordable way of saving and safeguarding their money, which can then be used to buy a share in any future takeover/share purchase plan. SOS are continuing discussions with Share Liverpool about how the two organisations can work together to truly ensure a united voice, speaking out on behalf of Liverpool supporters.
“This is OUR club. This is OUR chance to make our feelings known. This is OUR Independence Day. Make yourself heard and be there. Help save and protect our heritage, our history, our traditions and most of all our football club.
We can be ‘true custodians’. For now and for future generations. It is OUR club – Not theirs!”
The Spirit of Shankly want you to help send out that message a little further still, so that it shows it is not just those fans near Anfield or Liverpool that want Tom and George out, but many fans from right across the world.
With a global fanbase and many fans off on their Summer Holidays let us show Tom and George that all of us want to shout out the words ‘Tom and George – Not Welcome Anywhere.’ Be it in Anfield, America or Australia; in front of a famous landmark, down at the supporters club or just at home. Take this chance to spread the message throughout the world, that they aren’t welcome here.
All you need to do is print out the PDF from here and take a picture of it with yourself, your family, friends or your supporters’ club where you live or where you are on holiday this Summer. Please then send the picture to the email address of firstname.lastname@example.org and we will upload it to a gallery on our website. All pictures will be displayed in a dedicated SOS online gallery.
