Hate Crime Victim Support in Europe – A Practical Guide

Hate Crime Victim Support in Europe

Galop has contributed to a new European Guide on best practices to support people experiencing hate crime, produced by RAA Saxony, a German civil society organisation.

This comprehensive guide shares the deep experience and knowledge of hate crime victim support providers with a broader audience. It also provides practitioners, criminal justice professionals, civil servants, policy-makers and politicians a comprehensive approach about how to fulfill EU Directive 2012/29/EU on establishing minimum standards on rights, support and protection of victims of crime and the OSCE decision No. 9/09 on Combating Hate Crimes.

Dr Michael Privot, Director of the European Network Against Racism (ENAR) stated:

No doubt this guide will be pioneering in making the voices of victims heard, and ensuring that they are properly cared for…the guide is comprehensive, written in an accessible language, and addresses both long-time practitioners and newcomers to the field.

17-24-30 founder awarded Edwin Shuker Upstander Award at National Hate Crime Awards

Mark Healey was awarded the Edwin Shuker Upstander Award at the first National Hate Crime Awards which were held in central London on the 17th November 2016.

Mark was recognised for his voluntary work with the 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign which he founded in April 2009 to mark the 10th anniversary of the London Nail Bombs attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho.

Each year Mark organises the April Acts of Remembrance #AAR to mark the anniversaries of the attacks, to bring communities together, to remember those who lost their lives and support those affected by these acts of hatred.

In the same year Mark and others, organised the first London Vigil against Hate Crime after the death of Ian Baynham. Ian was homophobically abused and beaten in Trafalgar Square and Mark came up with the idea of holding a candle-lit vigil. Two weeks later, on the 30th October 2009 the vigil was attended by over 10,000 people and the Facebook event Mark set up to promote the event went viral and was shared over 29,000 times around the world.

Three years later, in October 2012 the London Vigil against Hate Crime evolved into National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW, which Mark continues to organise and promote through his on-going anti-hate crime work at the 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign.

Whilst accepting the award Mark took a moment to pay his respects to Andrea Dyke, John Light and Nik Moore (who were killed in the Soho bombing) and David Morely who survived the Soho bombing only to be killed five years later on the South Bank. Mark said he does the work to honour the memory of those we have lost through acts of hatred, and those who need our on-going support. His ambition is to encourage people to stand together to say that there is no place for hate in any of our communities.

High profile week of action across the transport network for National Hate Crime Awareness Week

More than 50 joint engagement events taking place at transport hubs across the capital between 10 and 14 October

Transport for London (TfL) and the Police are standing together to reassure passengers and transport staff that hate crime on the transport network is not tolerated, as part of National Hate Crime Awareness Week.

With hate crime an element in five per cent of all reported crimes that take place on London’s public transport network, TfL is working with British Transport Police (BTP), Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and City of London Police (CoLP) to host a series of joint engagement events.

More than 50 events are taking place at transport hubs across London this week where officers will speak to the public and local communities about hate crimes which may happen on the basis of someone’s race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age or disability. They are being told that if anyone witnesses, or is victim to any sort of hate crime, they can report it, and it will be taken seriously and investigated.

TfL and the Police will be using the #WeStandTogether message to reassure the millions of people who use London’s public transport each day that travelling across the Capital is safe and welcoming for all. Transport Police will be reaching out to community groups who may be deterred from travelling because of their fear of victimisation.

The campaign also provides people with practical information about what to do should they ever witness, or fall victim to, any form of hate crime. Since June, the transport police have spoken to more than 5,000 people about whether they’ve seen or experienced any form of hate crime and to spread the message that it will not be tolerated.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “London today is more diverse than ever and I am incredibly proud that we don’t just accept our differences, but celebrate them. There is simply no place in our capital for hate crimes of any form, and we will not tolerate them. We must stand together, and anyone who witnesses or experiences abusive behaviour should report it to the police immediately.”

Steve Burton, TfL’s Director of Enforcement and On-street Operations, said: “We stand united with our policing partners to send a strong message that hate crime of any form is not tolerated on London’s transport network. Incidents of hate crime on our network are low, but we know there are some people who feel worried about becoming a victim or made to feel uncomfortable because of who they are. By speaking to communities and people individually we want them to know that all reports– be it for offensive language or physical violence – will be taken seriously and that hate crime has no place on our services.”

Superintendent Chris Horton from British Transport Police (BTP) said: “Hate crime has absolutely no place on the transport network and everyone should be free to travel without being targeted on the basis of who they are.

“We ask those who experience hate crime or witness it on their journey to tell us what happened. We know it can sometimes be uncomfortable to talk about what happened but we will listen to you and we will act.

“People can report an incident to us discreetly by texting 61016 from a mobile phone, or they can call us on 0800 40 50 40.”

Detective Chief Superintendent Paul Rickett, MPS Roads and Transport Policing Command, said: “We will not tolerate any form of hate crime on London’s surface transport network. People ought to be able to go about their lives without fear of being targeted or made to feel uncomfortable by a minority with hate-based attitudes.
“We are acutely aware that hate crime is still under reported and we are working hard with our partners to address this. If you have been a victim of such a crime, or you know someone who has been, you can be assured that you will be taken seriously. Any allegation will be robustly investigated.”

Chief Inspector Hector McKoy from the City of London Police said: “We want everyone to feel safe and secure travelling around the City of London, and the rest of the Capital. The City of London Police have an important role to play across all our communities, helping people to feel safe and secure about being themselves as they go about their daily lives – and there is never any excuse for abuse, racism or hate crime.

“Alongside our partners we are meeting with our communities, offering them reassurance and support, and letting them know what they can do if they witness or experience hate crime. The City of London Police message is very clear – report it, and do not suffer in silence.”

Mark Healey, founder of the 17-24-30 No to Hate Crime Campaign and Organiser of National Hate Crime Awareness Week, said: “We are really encouraged by the number of events taking place around the UK, and welcome the positive engagement between Transport for London, local authorities and communities affected by hate crime. It’s important we are all standing together, to say there is no place for hate in any of our communities.”

People can report seeing or experiencing a hate crime by texting 61016 from a mobile phone (for Tube and rail incidents) or by calling 101. In an emergency they should call 999.

For anyone who feels uncomfortable speaking to the police about a Hate Crime incident, they can visit report-it.org.uk where reports can be submitted that are anonymous.

Anti-Muslim incidents can also be reported at: Tell MAMA on 0800 456 1226, WhatsApp ‎0734 184 6086 or at tellmamauk.org.

For Anti-Semitic incidents, CST can be called on 0208 457 9999 or reported at www.cst.org.uk .

A poem for IDOHAR

trudy-howson

LGBT Poet Laureate Trudy Howson has written a poem to mark the 8th International Day of Hope and Remembrance for those affected by Hate Crime #IDOHAR

The first #IDOHAR took place on the 30th October 2009 after the death of Ian Baynham, over 10,000 people gathered in Trafalgar Square to say No Place For Hate in our communities.

Sandy Toskvig stood up on stage and said “Tonight we stand up for Ian, Tonight we stand up for the first International Day of Hope and Remembrance for all those affected by hate crime” – and #IDOHAR was born.

#IDOHAR takes place at the end of National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW and is usually marked by Candle-lit vigils against Hate.

#IDOHAR by Trudy Howson

Now is the time to remember.

To remember the beauty and innocence of love,

To remember to nurture and protect it.

Now is not the time for silence.

For sitting on the fence, being invisible.

Remember, we deserve to love and be loved.

It’s time to stand up for justice.

Shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand, heart to heart.

For our community and ourselves.

Remembering those brothers and sisters,

Whose senseless torture and killing, pushed us past

The acceptance of hate crime against us.

Let us not continue to be beaten.

Verbally abused, discriminated against, or murdered

Because of the special love we share.

Now is the time to remember

That we can address prejudice, bullying and hatred.

That we can make a real difference

Let us not forget that love.

Nourishes and restores us, makes us strong,

That our love will triumph over hatred.

Southwark – say No To Hate Crime

Southwark Council are one of the councils that set the standard in London with their pro-active Southwark Hate Crime Network which has helped inspire a number of events to be held across the borough during National Hate Crime Awareness Week 2016.

Foreword

Welcome to the programme of events and activities for Southwark’s contribution to Hate Crime Awareness Week.

As we have seen in recent months, hate crime can have a terrible impact on victims and society. No one should be a victim of a crime, and no one should be a victim of a crime simply because of who they are.

Southwark is a tolerant, diverse and integrated borough and we can be very proud of the great contribution people of various nationalities, ethnicities, cultures, religions, genders and gender identities, disabilities, faiths and religions have made to it.

During Hate Crime Awareness Week and throughout the year, it’s important that we make the messages loud and clear: 

  • We stand together against hate 
  • There is no place for hate in Southwark
  • We want our residents to be safe and to feel safe.

That’s why I’m proud of our contribution to Hate Crime Awareness Week to empower our residents and the people who work in and commute through Southwark to be more aware of hate crime, more confident in reporting and more aware of the support available to them, should they ever need it.

I’m also pleased that some of the events also focus on the deeper rooted causes of hate crime, examining issues around identity and asking people to think about the many things we have in common as human beings. After all, in the words of the MP, Jo Cox, who was tragically murdered earlier this year, “We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us.”

Cllr Barrie Hargrove, Cabinet Member for Communities and Safety

Southwark have designed this new poster, along with a new A4 leaflet.
