New April Acts of Remembrance Archive
This section of the website covers the last 20 years, starting with the three nail bomb attacks on Brixton 17th April, Brick Lane 24th April and Soho 30th April 1999.
It memorialises the three people who died in the Admiral Duncan attack, Andrea Dykes and her unborn child, John Light and Nik Moore. Over 140 people were injured during the three attacks.
It recalls the march on the 1st May 1999 organised by Lambeth Unison in partnership with the Anti-Nazi League, the National Assembly Against Racism, the National Black Alliance and the Movement for Justice, along with a number of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans Community groups including Outrage, Stonewall and the London Lesbian & Gay Switchboard.
Prince Charles visited the Admiral Duncan on the 3rd May. on the 4th May the London Gay Men’s Chorus watched by a crowd of people moved the flowers from the front of the Admiral Duncan and laid them in Soho Gardens.
On the 7th May speakers including Peter Tatchell, Ken Livingstone MP, Darryl Telles Lesbian & Gay Coalition against Racism, Tess Joseph Jewish Gay & Lesbian Group, Stephen Kristian Outrage!, Teresa Bennett Anti-Nazi League, Tom Robinson singing “Glad to be Gay”(with updated lyrics), Sue Sanders Schools Out and Sukwant Dhaliwal Southall Black Sisters spoke in front of the Admiral Duncan.
Nine weeks after the Soho bombing the Admiral Duncan re-opened on Friday 2nd July 1999 at 18:37 pm. Boy George was one of the people who spoke at the opening.
The archive includes photos of the three cherry trees that were planted in memory of Andrea Dykes, John Light and Nik Moore in the corner of St Anne’s Gardens. A photo of the original Soho plaque that went missing in 2013 and the triangular bench designed by Simon Kidd and installed by Ken Livingstone, Mayor of London, on Tuesday 14th October 2003.
There is a tribute to David Morley (aka Sinders) the barman who survived the Soho Bombing but who was attacked and killed on the South Bank on the 30th October 2004.
Five years later, on the same day, David Morely was remembered during the first London Vigil against Hate Crime organised after the death of Ian Baynham.
Photos of three plaques; the Brixton plaque installed on the side of the Iceland Store on the 8th November 2000, the Soho plaque replaced in 2013 and the Brick Lane plaque which was installed on the 24th April 2019 (marking the 20th anniversary of the Brick Lane bombing).
17-24-30 NationalHCAW was founded as a Facebook group in March 2009, it evolved into the 17-24-30 No to Hate Crime Campaign later the same year, registering with HMRC (ref XT30898) in 2010. It has evolved into 17-24-30 NationalHCAW in 2019.
There is a photo from the protest in Brixton marking the 10th anniversary of the Brixton nail bomb (17th April 2009) and the Triangular bench in Soho on the 10th anniversary of the Soho bomb (30th April 2009.
There are photos from all of the Acts of Remembrance in Brixton, Brick Lane and Soho starting in April 2009 through the the last Acts of Remembrance held in April 2019. Each links to Facebook photo album’s on 17-24-30 NationalHCAW’s public Facebook page.
