Conor McGinn comments on UK ban of US-based neo-Nazi group

Conor McGinn MP, Labour’s Shadow Security Minister, commenting on reports neo-Nazi group Atomwaffen Division is to be banned in the UK:

“Racism and fascism have no place in our society or on our streets, so it’s welcome that this vile group has rightly been outlawed as a terrorist organisation.

“It is concerning that the group seems to have been operational since 2015, yet this action is only now happening.

“Labour has long warned that the government does not have a robust enough strategy to address the rise in far-right extremism. This needs to be swiftly addressed, to tackle this appalling threat.”
