Q&A About 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign


Welcome to our WordPress site

Q: What does “17-24-30” stand for?

A: 17-24-30 represents the combined dates of the London nail bomb attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho which took place on the 17th, 24th and 30th April 1999.

Q: When was 17-24-30 founded?

A: A Facebook group was set up in April 2009 to mark the 10th anniversary of the London Nail Bomb attacks. We registered as a small charity with HM Revenue and Customs in August 2011 (Ref XT30898)

Q: What does 17-24-30 do?

A: Our primary aim is to organise and facilitate the April Acts of Remembrance #AAR to mark the anniversaries of the attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho, and National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW in October.

We believe that it is important to actively remember the victims of hate crime, to show our support to those who have had their lives changed forever by acts of hate. We state that hate crime is no acceptable in our communities and that we will work together to tackle this problem.

17-24-30’s secondary aim is to spread a message of H.O.P.E. across the UK and beyond to encourage local authorities (including councils and police services), key partners and communities affected by hate crime to work together.

Q. What does H.O.P.E. stand for?

A: H.O.P.E. stands for

  • Hate crime awareness,
  • Operational response to hate crime,
  • Preventing hate crime and
  • Empowering communities to report hate crime and access victim support services.

Brick Lane Remembers 17-24-30

On Sunday 24th April the 17th anniversary of the Brick Lane nail bomb took place outside the site of the Sweet and Spicy Restaurant. The restaurant has changed hands and now serves spicy chicken dishes – we had a nice chat with the wife of the new owner.

Five volunteers handed out over 400 London Hate Crime Reporting Cards and chatted to some of the locals including a man who said he lived nearby. It transpired that he was about nine years old when the bomb went off and he heard it as he was taking a shower.

Several of the restaurant owners came out and said hello. Some recounting their experiences of when the bomb exploded including one man who had parked his car next to the car that was carrying the bomb. He said he never drives his car to Brick Lane any more.

Afterwards we went for a curry. Photo’s by Brigitte Boldy

Brixton Remembers 17-24-30

On Sunday 17th April 2016 the annual act of remembrance to mark the 17th anniversary of the Brixton Nail Bomb took place at the side of the Iceland Store in Brixton.

Mark, Matt and Brigitte handed out over 250 of the new London Hate Crime Reporting Cards and chatted to passers-by, including Oswald – who was the guy who had stumbled upon the sports bag containing the nail bomb when it was left at the bus stop nearby by David Copeland. He moved it round the corner, placing it on a bit of street furniture.

This year cages from the Iceland store blocked the site underneath the Brixton plaque which marks the spot where the bomb exploded. There was no representation from Lambeth Council or Lambeth Police. Photos taken by Brigitte Boldly.

Participants wanted for photographic project to highlight hate crime

No More Hate Project

Call for individuals who would like to part take in a photographic installation to highlight the experiences of people who have experienced hate crime and to create awareness.

The exhibition will be part of the “we R” exhibition held from 21st June to 3rd July 2016 at Espacio Gallery, 159 Bethnal Green Road London E2 7DG.

My name is Brigitte Boldy. I am a photographic artist based in London. My work is primarily issue based, dealing with questions of identity, displacement, loss and human rights.

My Project:

No More – is a photographic installation of individuals who were either victims of hate crime or are concerned and or oppose the increases of homophobic attacks in the UK and the world in general.

I will be working closely with the 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign and will be photographing the events on 17th April in Brixton, 24th April in Brick Lane, 30th April in Admiral Duncan pub.

The photographs will be portraits only.

If you would like to take part please see me at these events or directly by email: brigitte.boldy@gmail.com .

The experiences of the individuals are as important as the their photographs, therefore if anyone who is reluctant to have their photographs taken but willing to share their story, will also be greatly appreciated.

The photographs will be only used with your consent for the installation at the “we R” exhibition and publicity of the show.

If the exhibition moves to other venues then further consent will be sought from you.

Brigitte Boldy
