17-24-30 is part of the London Peace Network and was started up in order to raise awareness about all forms of hate crime. Each year events are organised to remember all victims of hate crime, including those who died and suffered as a result of the nail bomb attacks in three parts of London in 1999. Asian, gay and Black people were targeted in the attacks on Brick Lane, Soho and Brixton. Three people died and many more were injured.
