Conor McGinn – 2021 Comments on Atomwaffen Division

The comments made by Conor McGinn, the Shadow Security Minister, on 19 April 2021.

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.
