17-24-30 No To Hate Crime Campaign


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 17-24-30 as a small charity with HM Revenue and Customs in August 2011.

Q: Why was 17-24-30 set up?

A: In April 2009 there was an article published that said that there was not enough support for those who experienced these attacks, the anniversaries cause pain and suffering, and that because there was no support the annual gathering and service in St Anne’s Gardens  should end.  We felt that was the wrong decision – and that whilst the friends and families of those who were killed or injured want to gather, that we as a community have a duty to stand together with them. Further we thought we should take on-board the responsibility for organising and facilitating what we now call the April Acts of Remembrance #AAR.

We believe that it is important to remember the victims of hate crime, to signpost support to those who have had their lives changed forever by acts of hate.

Our value is organising events to bring communities together to remember those we have lost, and those who need our ongoing support.

To state clearly that there is no place for hate, whilst developing people's skills and making society a safer place for all.

Q: What are the aims of 17-24-30?

A: Our primary aim is to organise and facilitate the April Acts of Remembrance #AAR .

We want to bring people together, to remember those lost and those who need our on-going support. We want our communities to stand together against all forms of hate crime.

In Brixton and Brick Lane we gather and hand out information about hate crime and talk to people about their experiences.

In Soho we facilitate the annual service in St Anne’s Gardens.

Q. What other aims does 17-24-30 have?

A: Following the death of Ian Baynham in October 2009 we organised the first London Vigil against Hate Crime in Trafalgar Square which was supported by over 29,000 people around the world. Over 10,000 people turned up for the first vigil in Trafalgar Square - launching what has become an international day of hope and remembrance for those affected by hate.

17-24-30 supports the objectives outlined in the Government’s Challenge It, Report it, Stop It Hate Crime strategy launched in March 2012 and updated in May 2014.

· To prevent hate crime.

· To encourage reporting and increase access to victim  support.

· To improve operational response to hate crime.

We raise funds to organise and support hate crime awareness events and activities to promote these objectives.

We also support the Mayors Office Policing and Crime MOPAC Hate Crime Reduction Strategy launched in December 2014.

Q: What is National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW? 

A: In October 2012 the London Vigil against Hate Crime evolved into the National Hate Crime Awareness Week #NHCAW.

The week takes place between the second Saturday and third Saturday of October, and is designed to encourage local authorities (Police and Council) to work with local communities affected by hate crime to organise hate crime awareness events to promote local advice and support services.

We aim to spread a message of HOPE;

H - Hate crime awareness.

O - Operational response to hate crime.

P - Preventing hate crime.

E - Empowering communities to report hate crime and access advice and support services.

In 2015 we saw over 200 hate crime awareness events take place around the UK and each year more and more events are being organised.

Q. What does 17-24-30 organise during #NHCAW?

A: Working in partnership with key partners covering all the hate crime strands (Disability, Faith, Gender Identity, Race, Sexuality and Alternative Subcultures) we organise coordinate the week, and facilitate a launch event at St Paul's Cathedral.

Each year we invite people/organisations across the social and political spectrum to support our work - asking them to write letters of support and organise their own hate crime awareness events.
