Closed petition Take action to tackle "incel" extremism in the UK

In response to the tragic events in Plymouth, we need to recognise "incels" in the major rise in far right extremism, because of their hateful ideologies. The Government should take action to prevent "incel" extremism, including investigating online and other organised activity by incels.

More details

Far right extremism is becoming one of the world’s biggest rising terror threats, and as demonstrated, there is a link between this and people who self proclaim as "incels". These people hold hateful ideologies that often go unnoticed until it is too late. The Government needs to do more to tackle online indoctrination into these anti-British values to prevent future tragedy and to investigate cyber activity before it becomes a serious issue. This should include campaigns geared to young people.
