Our Independence Day - Sunday 4th July 12 noon (Night)

Event type:Night
Date & Time:Sunday 04 July 2010 at 00:00

The Spirit Of Shankly is holding an Independence Day Rally on Sunday 4th July at 12 noon on St George's Hall Plateau, to talk about plans for our 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, we will be talking about how we 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. We will be talking about Supporter Ownership and how our 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. We 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!

(We would ask all those attending on the day to observe and be aware of local bye laws concerning litter and the consumption of alcohol. This is our chance to show the watching world and Tom and George that we are coming to oust them, and to show new owners we won't let it happen again - let's make sure that message goes out properly.)
