Follow the (REDS) Flag in 2010…(Kop UNlimited!)
In the last 2 weeks I have tried to encourage Liverpool fans to follow TRUE REDS; supporters of Shanks & the "Liverpool way" and celebrate what the great man gave to us (and me personally) …I don’t feel anything like ENOUGH was done..
Therefore I am dedicating the "Follow the (REDS) flag" tour and cultural targets to his memory in a more pragmatic way that I hope will do him justice ;
a) To raise awareness of the rights of supporters to own their clubs and oppose the business exploitation of y-our culture,
b) PROTECT Anfield as a cultural heritage site , to be a living museum (this is THE peoples Culture, more than any other! )
c) During my tour and eventual progress through 3 continents to estabish more centres where disadvantaged and enthusiastic kids (of all ages) can develop Shankly’s "Liverpool way"
d) As a by-product create a 5-a-side network, local & global so kids or adults can enjoy the same great fun he had.
e) To encourage & realise the eventual supporters ownership of any new Liverpool stadium, to be called the "Shankly stadium"
Shanks; "I was interested in only one thing, success for the club. And that meant success for the people. I wanted results for the club, for the love of the game, to make the people happy. – The Socialism I believe in is everyone working for each other, – having a share of the rewards. It’s the way I see football, the way I see life"
What can U do? Tell me your ideas for a special t-shirt (on the front I will have a simple LiverBird and YNWA logo, but on the back I want a "Shanks-Follow the flag" design that identifies this initiative & its goals" <smile>
will YOU join us?
