Dear The Right Honourable Priti Patel MP,
We, the undersigned, are writing to you with concern over the Nazi-Satanic group ‘Order of Nine Angles’ and call on you to use the powers under the Terrorism Act 2000 to proscribe them as a terrorist group.
Successive governments have proscribed groups under this legislation and we welcomed the proscription of Sonnenkrieg Division and System Resistance Network as terrorist organisations. However, the nature of the far right constantly changes and the government must respond much faster to keep step with the rapidly evolving danger.
The Order of Nine Angles (O9A) seeks to overthrow the alleged “Nazarene/Magian” (Jewish) influence on society by subverting and destabilising society through both chaos and terrorism. It is the most extreme Satanist group in the world and is having an increasing influence on a generation of young nazis who are being drawn into terrorist activity.
For the last 20 years the O9A has openly advocated terrorism. O9A material encouraging terrorism was found in the possession of David Copeland, the London nailbomber, and the NSU killers, the German trio who killed nine migrants and a police officer between 2000 and 2006. The leader of the O9A then converted to Islam and became an al Qaeda propogandist, where again he celebrated the 9/11 attacks and advocated suicide bombings.
Over the last 12 months, four far right activists convicted of terrorist offences - all teenagers - have been linked to the O9A, and there are two more cases pending.
The O9A are spreading their nazi propaganda through existing nazi groups and on encrypted online chat room sites, encouraging extreme sexual violence and terrorism. They even run a site that openly promotes and encourages rape.
Proscribing the O9A as a terrorist group is the only way to limit their ability to spread their poison and encourage young people to commit terrorism.
We look forward to receiving your response.
