FOUR white supremacists were jailed yesterday after plastering racist stickers across a city centre university campus.
The “pernicious” stickers were stuck around Aston University in Birmingham and had “potential to cause social unrest and racial tension in the city,” said Judge Paul Farrer.
Sentencing the men at Birmingham Crown Court, he said the stickers were also recruitment tools for the now-banned National Action, of which the men were all members.
Chad Williams-Allen, of Tantany Lane, West Bromwich, played a central role and had a previous conviction for uttering a racially abusive remark at a National Action rally in May 2016.
He was jailed for 21 months for stirring up racial hatred.
The court heard that he had provided most of the 11 racist stickers used during the incident on July 9 2016.
Garry Jack, formerly of Heathland Avenue, Birmingham, was handed a 12-month suspended sentence for his “subordinate role.”
Two other men, who cannot be named for legal reasons, were jailed for 16 months and 12 months respectively for their parts in the hate crime.
