Far-right groups in UK target hotels housing Afghan refugees

A campaign group that monitors the activities of the far right, says the resettlement schemes for Afghans have became a focal point for many of these groups. It says the arrival of the refugees has led to the far right “reviving, and refining, similar attacks used during the Syria crisis”.

The far-right activists then film themselves turning up at these hotels trying to find the refugees who they incorrectly describe as illegal immigrants.

They approach them either inside the hotels or in the grounds, ask them where they are from and if they are waiting for a house.

The far-right YouTuber Paul Joseph Watson has recently posted about negative Tripadvisor reviews from British visitors to a Scarborough hotel that is accommodating Afghan refugee families. Far-right groups have urged their supporters to post negative reviews on Tripadvisor about hotels where Afghan refugees are being accommodated.
