Alex Davies, 27, from Swansea, is charged with being a member of the banned organization after it was banned on December 16, 2016.Barnaby Jameson QC, prosecuting, told the trial at Winchester Crown Court that the UK government banned the group after “terrorizing” cities across the country with his call for “all-out race war.”

Davies is accused of creating NS131 – which stood for National Socialist Anti-Capitalist Action and which was itself later banned by the government – ​​as a continuity group.

Different goals

He told the court that NS131 was not created as a continuation of NA and had different purposes and processes.

Davies said that after the ban he was involved in “advancing the cause of National Socialism, not the cause of a continuity NA”.

He added, “After proscription, all I care about is pursuing legal political activities.”

Davies, from Swansea, denies being a member of any banned organization between December 17, 2016 and September 27, 2017.

The jury was sent home to continue their deliberations on Friday.
