Stickers from the neo-Nazi terrorist organisation National Action have been spotted in Feltham.
National Action was officially proscribed as a terrorist organisation by Home Secretary Amber Rudd, following pressure from Campaign Against Antisemitism. This means that under the Terrorism Act, it is illegal to recruit for, be a member of or express support for the group, which includes displaying its symbols.
The stickers say “White Zone”, and feature an image of a man with his face covered performing a Nazi salute. National Action has previously declared areas of Liverpool to be “Nazi-controlled zones“.
The stickers were found outside Burger King and Pizza Hut in Feltham, but it is unknown whether there are others. An image of one of the stickers was released in a Facebook group, to near-universal condemnation of the neo-Nazi activity from local residents, though one suggested that they were put there by “people you’d least expect”, implying that this was a kind of “false flag” by people who are opposed to the group.
It is not currently known whether this indicates a growing presence of National Action in the area, but it appears to mirror tactics used in areas such as Liverpool where they eventually became quite prominent.
The police have been notified.
