Justice for Anthony Walker

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Tomorrow
I dont care if we win or lose
Watching my beloved Liverpool
From my place in the kop
For football is not the most important
Thing in life
Life itself is more important
More precious
And love will always be more powerful
Than the hatred that breeds
In cowards who hate
For those who with tolerance
Love with no strings attached
Unite this city whose shame hangs heavy…

In attendance and speaking will be local trade unionists, politicians,faith groups, anti-racist campaigners and community leaders. The vigil is an opportunity to show our condemnation of this despicable racist murder and our commitment to a multicultural Merseyside.
