Conservative activist convicted of “inciting hatred” for sharing anti-immigration stickers
By Ethan Huff // Feb 07, 2024

A prominent right-wing activist in the United Kingdom has been found guilty of "intending to stir up racial hatred" after he was caught sharing anti-immigration stickers stating things like "White Lives Matter" and "We will be a minority in our homeland by 2066."

Sam Melia, 34, faced trial following a raid on his Pudsey home on Town Street in April 2021, during which police officers uncovered a catalogue of downloadable stickers that authorities determined were "racist" in their intent, and thus a danger to society.

In addition to the stickers, the raid also turned up a poster of Adolph Hitler and a book by a famous British fascist named Oswald Mosley.

The Yorkshire organizer of the far-right Patriotic Alternative group, Melia was found on several occasions to have stirred up racial hatred between 2019 and 2021. On at least one occasion, he was caught distributing materials for a group called the Hundred Handers, a far-right, anti-immigration group in the UK.

At the time, Melia headed up the Hundred Handers, which operates anonymously to plaster anti-immigration "stickering" throughout Great Britain. Followers of the group were able to access, download, and print the stickers for their own distribution purposes.

According to the Crown, media reports of "stickering" by the Hundred Handers "extended from Cornwall to Northern Ireland," and they "may make it clear the incidents have in fact caused fear or alarm."

Some of the other things the stickers said include:

"Labour loves Muslim rape gangs"

"Mass immigration is white genocide"

Free speech means all speech

In defense of Melia, barrister Richard Canning argues that there "was not a shred of evidence that the Hundred Handers or Patriotic Alternative encourage lawbreaking." Further, Canning told jurors that "a person's right to free speech must be protected."

The jury adjourned for less than a day before returning with a unanimous decision to convict Melia of the crimes lodged his way. Judge Tom Bayliss KC said sentencing will adjourn in order for a pre-sentence report to be prepared, also granting bail to Melia and ordering him to reappear in court on March 1.

Speaking to the jury directly, Melia said it never even crossed his mind that he could be brought up on charges like this simply for sharing stickers in public.

"The idea was always conversations about topics," he said. "They are topics like the grooming gangs or rape gangs that have been prevalent across this country."

Melia says he was careful with his stickers, too, having removed one in particular that he says "got close to incitement." Another thing he emphasized is that one of the Hundred Handers' rules was to never put stickers on private property because doing so "would be considered intimidatory."

"The idea of the messages is to start a conversation, not to make someone feel intimidated," Melia told jurors, unsuccessfully arguing his case.

Melia says everywhere the stickers were placed were "places people are waiting," including on street furniture, lampposts, and bus stops.

"You go round Leeds and there's stickers on everything," he added about how stickers in public places are normal throughout the UK. "There must be a reason people are putting them out there."

When Canning asked Melia if he intended the stickers to be seen, Melia responded affirmatively that "it's not just for my own pleasure."

"What use would a sticker be sat in your bedroom drawers?" Melia then asked. "I intended for them to be public."
