Plead for 1989 Hillsborough 69 disaster to be further investigated

In order to plead for further police investigation of the Hillsborough disaster which happened on 15 April 1989, a march took place in London. Five families who lost their loved ones at the disaster, were marching towards 10 Downing Street, with more than 4000 supporters to join them. Their goal was to force the government to realise further investigation of the horrible tragedy. On 15 April 1989, 96 fans were crushed to death in a large crowd of football fans, during Liverpool's FA Cup semi-final with Nottingham Forest. People from all over the world have signed the petition in order to show their sympathy.

Personal reaction to this topic:
Just imagine being crushed in a large crowd like that. What a horrifying way to die! I must say that I am always very cautious when I am standing in large crowds. It is very intimidating to have so many people that are surrounding you. Accidents like this have unfortunately happened before at events where many people were gathered at the same time. It is for the organizations to take precautions so that these tragedies will never happen again. I sincerely hope that the request of the families who lost their beloved, will be taken seriously. Hopefully this will bring a certain closure for them, so they will be able to move on with their lives.
