What We Saw
Socialist Liverpool FC supporters' group Spirit of Shankly recently unveiled its new banner.
As well as combining Liverpool and Everton colours, the banner prominently features Jeremy Corbyn and John McDonnell. It also backs foodbanks and carries union endorsements.
The roster of supported campaigns includes the Blacklist Support Group, Shrewsbury 24, Orgreave Truth and Justice - and, of course, the Hillsborough Justice Campaign.
Liverpool and Everton fans have a proud history of actively campaigning for working class interests. Supporters' groups stood alongside trade unionists to defend Liverpool's socialist council, led by Militant, the Socialist Party's forerunner.
