17-24-30 is a non-profit organisation run completely by volunteers.
Our primary focus is to remember and mark the anniversaries of the London Nail Bomb Attacks on Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho and to support the communities that were attacked to unite people against all forms of Hate Crime.
April 17th, 1999. BRIXTON. 39 men, women and children injured.
April 24th, 1999. BRICK LANE. 6 men and women injured.
April 30th, 1999. The Admiral Duncan, SOHO. 65 men and women injured. 3 killed.
17-24-30 represents the three dates three different communities were seperately attacked, but which have brought us closer together.
The London Nail Bombers agenda was simple yet terrifying; he intended to light a spark that would ignite a violent reaction from minority communities and lead to an all-out race war, culminating in the coming to power of the right-wing British National Party.
17-24-30 is attempting to create a space on FACEBOOK and the web where people can respectfully express their thoughts, share their experiences and reflect upon the good work that is being done within our communities.
We are attempting to signpost services and information. It is hoped that this will inspire and encourage more people to get involved and be positively creative within the world we share.
We will not forget 17-24-30.
