Four neo-Nazis found guilty of posting racist stickers around Aston University in Birmingham
The Neo-Nazi members later went to a pub and bragged about offending "butt-hurt students, sub-humans, and traitors."
Four men who performed Nazi salutes as they posted racist stickers around Aston University campus have been found guilty of spreading racial hatred and tension.
The four extremists were caught on surveillance cameras posting the racist stickers, which read “Britain is ours - the rest must go”, around the university in Birmingham in July 2016, the Independent reported.
The prosecutor said that the stickers were a recruitment mechanism for a banned far-right terrorist group called National Action. The group was banned later in 2016.
Two days later, security of the university noticed the stickers and filed a complaint with the police who then started a hate crime investigation on the matter. One of the stickers posted said, "White Zone - National Action."
The group took the charades to a pub later, where they bragged about their activities in the University campus declaring this act on the day of Black Lives Matter demonstration in Birmingham offended, "butt-hurt students, sub-humans, and traitors".
A photo showed the members holding the National Action's flag and demonstrating a Nazi-type salute in front of the University.
A day after they appeared, a post on a Twitter account run by the group’s regional arm read: “The fashy goys [sic] of National Action have hit Aston University campus”.
Chad Williams-Allen, 26, from West Bromwich and Gary Jack, 22, from Shard End, are due to be sentenced on 1 June along with two other fellow convicts who cannot be named for legal reasons, Independent reported.
Members of the jury were shown a message thread on the messaging app Telegram in March 2016 where Williams-Allen sent an image of a National Action sticker, writing: “Been taking the long route home through paki land and slapping these everywhere.”
The 26-year-old railed against multi-culturalism, Jewish people and used racial slurs. “Back in brum - disgusting n*****s and pakis everywhere,” another read.
The unnamed 23-year-old defendant was described as "key influencer and organizer" of National Action while his other 26-year-old partner had electronic images on him seized by the police which said, "Hitler was right" and "bring back apartheid".
Detective Chief Superintendent Matt Ward, who heads the West Midlands Counter Terrorism Unit, said: “We are committed to tackling all forms of extremism which have the potential to threaten public safety and security.”
The punishment for being part of such terrorist organization may go up to ten years.
YouTube was accused of encouraging videos of these far-right groups and was asked to immediately take down.
