Wednesday 30th April marks the 15th Anniverary of the Soho Nail Bomb
In April 1999 David Copeland set our to stir up fear and hatred by planting a series of nail bombs targetting Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho in the hope that it would lead to the election of the BNP. Luckily he was caught and his plan failed but not before he had killed three people John Light, Nick Moore and Andrea Dykes, and injured many more.

I would like your help to raise £1,000 to fund the on-going work of 17-24-30 No to Hate Crime Campaign.
This would help cover the annual administration costs of the campaign - renting a mail boxes at Mail Box Etc, storage facilities for the campaigns equipments (equipment we use during the April Acts of Remembrance and the National Hate Crime Awareness Week, and loan out to events including Dyke March, London Pride and Trans Remembrance Day), publicity materials and stationary.
17-24-30 No to Hate Crime Campaign helped raise funds to install the Jody Dubrowski bench on Clapham Common, and have covered the costs of replacing the Jody Dubrowski Plaque when it was stolen.
Your donation helps us cover the basic costs of organising these important April Acts of Remembrance, the October National Hate Crime Awareness Week and produce the publicity materials that we need to raise the profile of our on-going anti-hate crime campaign.
