An active Nazi from Croydon, south London, is standing for election as a trustee of the London Cycling Campaign, Searchlight can reveal. Members of the charity are concerned that Tony Martin, who is often seen photographing antifascists, may target LCC members on the Nazi Redwatch website, which publishes personal details and pictures of anyone who has in some way upset the Nazis to incite attack.
