White Supremacist 'Hundred Handers' Arrested After Racist Sticker Campaigns


Two men in their twenties have been arrested by South Yorkshire Police in connection with stickers linking migration with the coronavirus pandemic.

They use the logo of the far-right Hundred-Handers group – which is known for printing racist messages and sticking them around the UK and other countries. The messages linking Covid-19 with migration were also found in other cities including York, Leeds and Hull. The group takes its name from Greek mythology. The ‘Hundred-Handed Ones’ were the three children of the Titans Uranus and Gaea. Each one had 'one hundred hands and fifty heads and possessed superhuman strength'.
Two men, aged 20 and 22-years-old, have been arrested on suspicion of racially aggravated public order offences. They have been released under investigation while enquiries continue. An investigation is ongoing.
Local Councillor Ben Miskell said ...
This is absolutely disgusting and comes at a time where our diverse community is busy working together to tackle the virus. This sort of behaviour can damage community cohesion and relationships across the city. We’re all working together to try to combat the virus.
We have got people from all sorts of different backgrounds working in hospitals, care and community groups that are coming together to help elderly neighbours – regardless of the colour of their skin or their origin in the world.
These sorts of things are meant to just divide us rather than bring us together and capitalise on something awful that is happening in Britain for some really sinister aim.
The stickers first started to appear in January in Hull after which the issue was discussed in a council meeting. Hundred-Handers also created fake sticker campaigns under the guide of other organisations such as Extinction Rebellion.

The White Supremacist group also created fake sticker campaigns under the guide of other organisations and groups, including environmental group Extinction Rebellion.
