S.T.O.P. Gun and Knife Crime

Alexander Rose is a young Londoner who started the S.T.O.P. (Solve This Ongoing Problem) campaign after he saw friends and family members killed by gun and knife crime. He cites his campaign highlights as:

Getting the support of Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Tutu Foundation
Winning an award from the Body Shop
Speaking at schools and youth clubs across London
Watching knives smelted down by the police to make his “key” pendants
Putting on an event at the Ministry of Sound to promote “Education is the Key”

A documentary featuring Alex’s work will be aired on Channel 4 on Mon 11 May at 11:30am (it will also be available to view online on channel 4od).
