(Photos) Leeds United supporters trust’s classy Hillsborough tribute ahead of Liverpool game

Posted by

The people of Liverpool, including those affected by the Hillsborough stadium disaster, have been subjected to repeated horrific chants week after week with little in the way of support shown by opposition clubs or the Premier League.

Still, it’s important that we acknowledge those who do stand shoulder to shoulder with the city as Leeds United’s supporters’ trust has, laying a wreath in tribute to the 97 at the Hillsborough memorial.

Hopefully acts like these can encourage those showing a complete lack of empathy and human decency in such matters to properly educate themselves on the reality of harm caused and the inhumanity of songs aimed at mocking supporters unlawfully killed in 1989.
