Submitted by on April 14, 2013 – 11:28 amOne Comment


Salford Rap collective, Class Actions have released a compilation free download entitled ‘RIP up the Sun, R.I.P. the victims’, in order to raise awareness of the Hillsborough disaster of April 1989, and the subsequent campaign for justice.

The download includes a mixture of music and poetry from football fans of different teams worldwide in order to show solidarity with the victims and their families, which is far more important than any football team rivalry.

Class Actions’ signature tune ‘RIP Up the Sun’ is included, which features a youtube video shot around Liverpool, consisting of Liverpudlians literally ripping up the Sun and samples of Derek Coleman (a lifelong Liverpool fan). Last year the video made several national publications.

Also included are the cult YouTube hits amongst others:
‘No One Like’s Us We Don’t Care’ – By Mark Gorman and the People’s Villian
(This track has so far achieved more than 100,000 youtube views)
‘In the Red’ – By The_MOLOTOV
‘Power to the People’ – By D.I.S.L Automatic
‘Be Yourself – By Markus De Rawkus (formerly of ‘Madchester’ giants Northside)

Aslan AK, Class Actions frontman, said: “It is common knowledge that the Sun newspaper lied about the Hillsborough disaster and it is a pleasure to show solidarity with the 96 victims. I am hoping that this compilation shows that all football fans and decent people, must support the victims of Hillsborough and their families. Team rivalries mean nothing when human lives are lost.”

Mike F, Class Actions producer, said: “The Hillsborough disaster must not be forgotten, and the shameful lies from The Sun Newspaper must not go unknown. Justice is needed for the ’96 and I am grateful to be part of a compilation supporting the many victims of this tragedy.”
