Who are National Action?

By Dominic Casciani, BBC home affairs correspondent
National Action became the first British neo-Nazi group to be banned last December after Home Secretary Amber Rudd said it was promoting violence and acts of terrorism.
Members and supporters applauded the murder of Jo Cox MP by a white supremacist – and the group had carried out a series of small, but confrontational, demonstrations in towns and cities throughout England.
One of its most notorious events saw masked members – many of them very young men – gathering outside York Minster to make Hitler salutes.
Since it was banned, detectives have been carrying out more and more investigations into the group which, to all intents and purposes, has organised itself in a similar way to the banned al Muhajiroun network – the extremist Islamist youth movement.
Both have used social media to target young people, attracting them with a simplistic us-and-them message designed to make them angry.
The charges follow a number of raids across England and Wales by counter-terrorism officers as part of a national investigation into the group.
The others charged with belonging to a proscribed organisation are:
Garron Helm, 24, of Seaforth, Merseyside
Matthew Hankinson, 23, of Newton-le-Willows, Merseyside
Andrew Clarke, 33, of Warrington
Michael Trubini, 35, of Warrington
A spokeswoman for Greater Manchester Police said the men were charged following “co-ordinated activity” by police.
