Elliot Richards-Good self-recorded a GoPro video sticking up posters reading ‘Happy Birthday’ with a drawing of Adolf Hitler. He also sprayed Nazi Symbols around Cardiff, including on the Senedd. The 20-year-old was arrested at his home in Cheltenham on the 20th September last year. Right-wing graffiti had begun appearing around Cardiff soon after his arrival at Cardiff University in 2018. CCTV footage showed the 20 year old, wearing a GoPro camera strapped to his chest, cycling from Cathays to Cardiff bay on the same night a Nazi symbol appeared on the Senedd building. Following the arrest for this offence, Cardiff police were able to link Elliot to multiple similar incidents. Evidence was found at his Cheltenham address; including spray paints, a number of System Resistance Network posters and GoPro footage.System Resistance Network (SRN) is a Neo-Nazi group, which targets Welsh Communities and preaches zero tolerance of non-whites, Jewish and Muslim communities and states homosexuality is a disease. There is also evidence to suggest Richards-Good was actively recruiting members to the SRN and targeted the route of Stand Up to Racism march in Grangetown in March 2018.
