National Socialist Group System Resistance Network Should be banned, says British MP
Another patriotic National Socialist group that believes that non-whites should be expelled from Britain is facing calls for the outfit to be banned.
Calls for System Resistance Network (SNR) to be outlawed followed reports of the white nationalist outfit urging followers to read Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf and inflict activism on Welsh cities.
An MP is calling for the group to be banned just like the proscribed outfit National Action, whose founder praised SNR graffiti proclaiming Cardiff a National Socialist Zone.
It comes after Corporal Mikko Vehvilainen was jailed for eight years after trying to set up white enclaves in Wales. He was kicked out of the Army after his arrest in September 2017, along with another soldier, as he tried to form an underground network and stockpiled weapons.
They told him to put up posters of the group's logo - which incorporates the British Union of Fascists lightning bolt - and send pictures to prove that he had done so.
The SNR hit headlines in March when Wales Online reported that the group had claimed responsibility for "racist graffiti".
'Nazi Zone' was painted on a wall alongside swastikas and posters declared: 'P*** rape gangs coming to your town soon'.
Claiming reponsibility, the network told anti-fascist demonstrators planning to protest: 'Our propaganda at your March and meeting places. We’re taking names and remembering faces. Zero tolerance for non-white races!'
National Action founder Alex Davies has voiced support for the SNR on Radio Aryan, saying he was encouraged by the activism.
He said that 'signs of resistance' give him hope, adding: 'It's like a fire. As long as you've got some embers burning all you need is to put some fuel on that fire and it can turn into something big very quickly.'
Mr Davies was a student when he set up the group in 2013. He teamed up with Ben Raymond from Bognor Regis, who then moved to Swansea.
His outfit was made illegal in December 2016 after it glorified the murder of the Labour MP Jo Cox.
Since the ban Mr Davies has been arrested on suspicion of continuing to be a member of National Action, which he denies. He has not been charged.
Stephen Doughty, MP for Cardiff South and Penarth, is now calling for the SNR to be banned just like National Action.
Last month it was reported that white nationalist Corporal Mikko Vehvilainen, 34, was jailed for eight years for membership of National Action.
He believed the race war was coming and tried to establish an all-white armed stronghold in Powys.
The Royal Anglian Regiment soldier who served with distinction since 2012 was convicted of being a member of National Action, and was jailed for eight years.
News of his jailing came as Adam Thomas and Claudia Patatas from Oxfordshire, were found guilty of being members of the group. Before the group was disrupted, Thomas asked whether or not he could buy a fun from Vehvilainen. He also asked if it would notices if guns were stolen from his base.
Alexander Deakin, the group's 'regional commander' was jailed for eight years in April 2018.
