The online terror network ‘Terrorgram’ has been proscribed by MPs MPs have voted in favour of proscribing an online terror network, the first time an online group has received the designation in the UK. Terrorgram will become the sixth extreme right wing terrorist group to be banned in the UK, on the list of 81 banned organisations. It has published propaganda designed to incite followers to commit violence, and was credited by an attacker who killed two people in an LGBT nightclub shooting in Slovakia in 2022. Support for the group will be illegal, with punishments of up to 14 years in prison or an unlimited fine. During the debate on the motion in the Commons on Wednesday, Home Office minister Tom Tugendhat described Terrorgram as a ‘transnational, online network of neo-fascist terrorists who produce and disseminate violent propaganda with the aim of radicalising readers and encouraging individuals to commit acts of terrorism’. He told MPs: ‘The message of hatred they preach is one of extreme white supremacism. They call not just for death and violence, but the collapse of western democracy itself, so that they might build a whites-only world in its place.’ He added: ‘The decision to proscribe Terrorgram demonstrates this Government’s commitment to defend the security of the LGBT community. ‘Terrorgram hold vile antisemitic views. They have published propaganda material aimed at inciting violence against Jewish communities and the state of Israel, and most recently celebrated Hamas’ attacks on Israel, including endorsing the use of terrorism to target Israel and Jewish communities.’
