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.

  • Hate crime awareness,

Soho Remembers 17-24-30 2016

Saturday 30th April and volunteers from 17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign arrived in St Anne’s Gardens to set up for the annual act of remembrance #AAR to mark the 17th anniversary of the nail bomb attack on the Admiral Duncan.

This is the third of three annual acts of remembrance to remember those killed and injured during the three nail bombs targeted at the Black, Asian and Gay communities of Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho.

Thanks to Glyn, Matt and Martine who helped look after the equipment in the garden while  Mark liaised with people (including survivors, friends, family and representatives of the local authorities) at the Admiral Duncan.

Mark and Rev Simon Buckley walked round to St Anne’s Church with Inspector Ian Wilson and Westminster’s LGBT Police Liaison Officer Tatjana (both representing Westminster’s Metropolitan Police Service) to greet Cllr Paul Church (representing the Lord Mayor of Westminster, Westminster Council and the people of Westminster). We paused for a photo before walking round to the Admiral Duncan to meet those gathering at the bar.

At 6.10 pm survivors, family, friends and guests lined up on the road, ready for the walk round to St Anne’s Gardens.

The annual act of remembrance took place in the far corner of the gardens, around the triangular bench (the bench represents unity between the three communities that were attacked – Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho). Flowers and candles were placed at the bases of the three cherry trees which represent the three people killed; Andrea Dykes, John Light and Nik Moore.

Rev Simon Buckley starts the service, Mark says a few words, followed by a poem by the Moore family.

The service ends  with two songs sung by the Diversity Choir. El Melech Yosheiv – a beautiful traditional Jewish piece and Sure on this Shining Night by Samuel Barber.

Afterwards 17-24-30 packs up the equipment and joins those who have returned to the Admiral Duncan for an evening of entertainment with Mary Mac, Son Ofa Tutu and Tanya Hides. Thanks to Oliver and his staff at the Admiral Duncan for looking after everyone.

A collection raised £131.88 whilst the annual spring fundraising appeal has raised over £320.00  this year.

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
