Zack Newman started this petition to Nick Folland (CEO - CPS) and
Nigel Farage launched a poster in the final days of the referendum campaign with two aims: Incitement to racial hatred and Incitement to religious hatred. The law states that it is incitement to racial hatred when a person: "intends to stir up racial hatred, or makes it likely that racial hatred will be stirred up. This can include such things as making a speech, displaying a racist poster." The law states that it is incitement to religious hatred when a person uses: "words or behaviour that is intended to stir up religious hatred."
