April Acts of Remembrance #AAR

17-24-30 NationalHCAW

17-24-30 was founded in March 2009 in response to an article that suggested; the anniversaries cause pain and suffering, the communities affected by these attacks don't care and these anniversaries should be played down.


We believe we have a duty:


  • to organise these acts of remembrance as long as there are people who wish to gather.
  • to stand in solidarity with those affected by these attacks as long as they need us.
  • to educate people about these attacks to prevent them happening again.


Which is why we organise the April Acts of Remembrance: to remember those we lost,  stand with those affected by these attacks and educate future generations so that we can eliminate all forms of hate.

WE REMEMBERED THEM WITH RAINBOWS

We asked all the venues on Old Compton Street to show their support for the April Acts of Remembrance by displaying Rainbow flags in their windows throughout April  (as requested by the Moore family in tribute to Nik Moore who was killed in the Soho bombing along with his friends Andrea Dykes and John Light). 

We also remembered David Morely (Sinders) who survived the bombing but was killed five years later on the South Bank (30th October 2004)  by a group of youths in a so-called "happy slapping" incident, and Thomas Douglas who passed away in 2017.


NB: Every  year we get a number of media requests for survivors to talk about these events. Our policy is that we do not contact survivors unless they have given us explicit consent for us to contact them. We share any media requests via our monthly newsletter and social media profiles so that survivors, friends and family can respond directly to any requests.
