Ban The S*n in Flintshire

This petition had 81 supporters


I am starting a petition against the sale of The S*n newspaper in my local area (Flintshire) . I am originally from Liverpool, naturally the sale of the newspaper is massively frowned upon there due to the lies it told regarding the Hillsborough disaster in 1989. As an avid LFC supporter I have a lot of knowledge about the subject and the sale of this paper offends me personally.
I have noticed a lot of people in the area do not know much about the subject and the lies that where told,
LFC fans urinated on the police
LFC fans pick-pocketed the dead
LFC fans prevented the police and ambulance service from giving life saving treatment to their own fans
There are just some of many lies told about this disaster alone.

I feel I do not have a leg to stand on alone since a lot of people locally do not know about what happened and the lies that where told. However the few I have managed to speak to are abhorred when they realised what had occurred. Which is why I am trying to get an support I possibly can. 

The lucky fans who survived this, many are still suffering from long term health issues relating to it, depression, anxiety, PTSD, night terrors due to what they saw and the sale of this paper is an absolute insult to any LFC fan.

Liverpool and Everton football club and have taken the steps to have this paper and reporters banned from their club. Many other shops and organisation in Liverpool and the surrounding areas such as, Cheshire West, Halton, West Lancashire, Preston and many more refuse to welcome the rag of the paper for sale.

This newspaper is a threat to truth and common decency within society and I would like the council to consider a ban like many others already have.
I feel with the support  other community members the right steps could be taken to achieve this.
