The UK government has moved to outlaw The Base, a neo-Nazi extremist group primarily operating out of the US whose leader is allegedly a former American government contractor now living in Russia

Home Secretary Priti Patel is asking Parliament to proscribe 'the extreme right-wing terrorist group' which she says is 'seeking to establish a white ethno-state.'

The Base has 'celebrated and promoted the use of violence in an attempt to establish a fascist, white ethno-state by means of a ''race war,'' and members are known to have engaged in weapons and explosives training,' the Home Office said.

Patel says the group is 'seeking to establish a white ethno-state' and seeks to train members how to incite a 'race war' with weapons and explosives training

Proscribing the group would officially label it a terrorist organisation and make it a criminal offense to be a member of or invite support for it, punishable by up to 14 years in prison. 

The maximum penalty was increased from 10 years through the Counter Terrorism and Sentencing Act passed this year. 

'I am committed to making it as difficult as possible for these organisations to operate in the UK, both by banning them and increasing the penalties for membership or support, in order to protect the public and our national security,' Patel said in a statement.  

Formed in 2018, the Home Office states the group shares similar goals and beliefs with Atomwaffen Division and its alias, National Socialist Order, which Patel proscribed earlier in 2021
