October Mailing Update

Finally it’s October and the 3rd Vigil against Hate Crime is soon to take place.

When: Friday 28th October 2011
Where: Trafalgar Square*
Time: 7.30pm to 9pm

With a two minute silence 8pm

Other Vigils are taking place around the Uk and abroad (including Brighton*, Kettering*, Norwich*, Reading*, Stoke* and Suffolk*)

Where ever you are on Friday 28th October, we encourage you to do something about hate crime whether it’s holding your own vigil, or just observing the 2 minute silence alone or preferably with friends and family.

We would invite all venues to download our Vigil posters (here) and display them in your venue, and please host the 2 minute silence at 8pm.

We know that some venues like 286 Bar in Lewisham are organising a coach to bring people up to Trafalgar Square, and Gary Henshaw who owns the KU Bars is promoting the Vigil by playing the following video (click word to play) in all his venues.

Some London Boroughs are helping promote the Vigil by forwarding information within their local hate crime forums and networks (if you’re doing this let us know as we are happy to promote local initiatives). It would be nice to see local libraries and town halls having info stalls and displays.

We are also calling on Students Unions to organise Hate Crime awareness weeks and work in partnership with local authorities to promote 3rd Party reporting services and victim/survivor support services.
