This is a statement by Netpol about how a 14-year-old Derbyshire boy was labelled a ‘domestic extremist’, because he said in class that he is an anti-fascist.

The boy made his statement during a lesson on the US civil rights movement – and his family was then hounded by counter-terrorism police.

The case was logged by Prevent Watch, and became the subject of a Netpol awareness campaign ‘Stop Labeling Campaigners Domestic Extremists’.
