UK TO BAN EXTREME RIGHT-WING TERRORIST GROUP – THE BASE

On 12 July, the Home Office issued a news release advising that the Home Secretary has taken action to outlaw the extreme right-wing terrorist group, The Base; a predominantly US-based militant white supremacist organisation seeking to establish a white ethno-state.  It was first formed in 2018 and shares many of its aims and ideologies with Atomwaffen Division and its alias National Socialist Order, which the Home Secretary proscribed earlier this year.  The Base will be the fifth extreme right-wing terrorist group to be proscribed in the UK, and the third to be proscribed within the last year.  Proscription makes it a criminal offence to be a member of, or invite support for the group.
