National Front stickers have been appearing around a city's streets, prompting anger from residents.
The propaganda posted around the St Dunstan's area of Canterbury features phrases such as: "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children".
The labels have been spotted on roads including Rheims Way and London Road, with posters calling for "Britain for the British" plastered on bus stops and signs.
Taking a stand against the messages, nearby residents have been removing the offending articles.
The chairman of the St Dunstan's Residents' Association and Cross Street homeowner, Allen Tullet, was among the first to notice the National Front campaign.
He said: "I normally go around reporting or removing graffiti - which is the bane of my life as it is - but I saw this yesterday and a particular trail of stickers going from Rhiems Way to the Victoria recreation park.
"Compared to the graffiti we normally get it's particularly nasty, so I took them down and reported the stickers to the Community Safety Unit.
"It's a bit of a walking route and I can see why they are doing this on a main route into town.
"At first it took me a little while to see them because they're quite small - you have to really go up to them to see what they say.
"Some are more obvious in terms of the size of the lettering.
"I've seen plenty of sweary graffiti and other things, but I'm disappointed because that isn't the sort of thing we want in our community.
"It's a group of far-right fascists and if a group gets hold of that, it paints our community in a bad light.
"So I wanted to get them all down as soon as possible so none of this sort of thing keeps going on.
"I feel lucky to live in Canterbury. It's a very diverse place thanks to the universities and I often go to events with a broad range of people in attendance.
"Compared to other communities around east Kent, we are quite lucky to be so liberal.
"I don't think it will have a great impact but it could influence people and they might check out the website as a result.
"Given the level of political debate in the country right now, I wouldn't want people to be enticed to become supporters of the National Front."
Cllr Terry Westgate, who represents St Stephen's ward on Canterbury City Council, said: "All I've seen is what was put on Facebook.
"Any stickers put up in the area are flyposting, so they shouldn't be putting them up in any case.
"I haven't discussed the matter with any officers, but it is something I hope to look into further."
