Event description
Enough is enough knife crime is on the rise with no sign of it stopping! Join us to get knife crime at the top of the agenda.

About this Event

Enough is enough, knife crime is on the rise and we think communities, parents and the authorities need to put knife crime at the top of the agenda. Let’s get knife crime at the top of the government’s agenda so more effort, resources and focus is put into this growing problem.

Where will we be in 5 years if this problem continues? Show your support by marching with us to help us raise the profile of the senseless killings.

A March in Tashans Memory

Tashan Daniel, a loving son and brother, an amazing friend, cousin, nephew and role-model. On Tuesday 24th September 2019, Tashan and a friend were on their way to the Emirates Stadium to watch Arsenal play, a present he had bought himself for his 20th Birthday. In the middle of the afternoon, they were subject to an unprovoked attack on Hillingdon station platform. This brutal and senseless attack on such a young, cherished and respected member of the community needs to serve as a wake-up call.

Today it was our Tashan; tomorrow it could be someone you love – your friend, son, daughter, brother, cousin, nephew or even you.

Introduce a minimum sentence for carrying a knife equal to carrying a firearm

There should be a statutory minimum sentence for those found carrying a knife, the same as if carrying a firearm. With the reported 33% increase in knife crime since 2011 it is clear that there needs to be serious consideration for the punishment for those carrying offensive weapons.

If a young person is caught with a knife and it is their first offence they potentially have no further punishment with the current policy’s around knife crime in place. Unlike those caught with a firearm. How many of those have been let off lightly for knife crimes have then gone on to re offend and use a knife?
