“Terrorist” travesty – police act as political puppets in harassment of H&D’s Isabel Peralta

Our guest speaker at the recent Preston meeting – Spanish nationalist activist Isabel Peralta – was detained at Manchester Airport for more than six hours (under Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act) after flying from Madrid the night before the event.

Isabel and H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton therefore had only 90 minutes sleep before the meeting!

Despite never having been convicted of any offence, Isabel was further harassed by the authorities, who retained her phone and computer for five days. And the extraordinary fortnight of persecution continued when German authorities issued an exclusion order banning Isabel from Germany for 20 years! This is again despite her never having been convicted of any criminal offence. In fact Isabel herself has brought a court action in Madrid against the Jerusalem Post and Simon Wiesenthal Center.

Despite her 6-hour detention and interrogation – and after only 90 minutes sleep – Isabel Peralta and H&D Assistant Editor Peter Rushton were very happy to arrive at the H&D meeting in Preston, joining fellow speakers including (above left to right) Dr Jim Lewthwaite, Keith Axon and Laura Towler.

In the attached video, we examine the political persecution of Isabel Peralta and the discrediting of Europe’s anti-terrorist laws, which are used as excuses for political harassment and “fishing expeditions” for political intelligence, wholly unrelated to any genuine anti-terrorist concerns.

[video update] Great success for H&D’s Richard Edmonds, Colin Jordan & John Tyndall Memorial Meeting

Over seventy nationalists from different parties and groups attended the Heritage and Destiny 2022 Richard Edmonds, Colin Jordan & John Tyndall Memorial Meeting, held in Preston, Lancashire on Sunday 25th September 2022. Video is now online at H&D‘s new Odysee channel.

Meeting Chairman was Keith Axon: a former NF & BNP organiser, and longstanding friend of both John Tyndall and Richard Edmonds.

For the first time we had two women speakers and would have had three had Julie Lake not been prevented from attending due to a family bereavement. This was one of many aspects of this year’s meeting that both on the panel and in the audience showed the increasing diversity of European nationalism.

Speakers at this year’s highly successful H&D meeting included (above left to right): Dr Jim Lewthwaite, chairman of the British Democrats; Keith Axon, meeting chairman; Peter Rushton (H&D assistant editor); Isabel Peralta (H&D European correspondent); and Laura Towler, deputy leader of Patriotic Alternative.

For the fourth time we also had an international guest whom we kept secret until the last moment. H&D‘s European correspondent Isabel Peralta overcame a six-hour detention by UK Border Force and (after having only 90 minutes sleep!) was able to attend and speak in England for the first time.

Our Spanish guest was delighted to meet so many excellent new comrades especially her fellow speaker Laura Towler, deputy leader of Patriotic Alternative. Isabel and Laura are an inspiration to a new generation of intelligent young women across Europe who know that women have an even greater stake than men in rescuing European civilization.

Laura and her husband Sam Melia brought the youngest ever attendee to an H&D event, their baby Catherine whom we can already see is a remarkably attentive and disciplined comrade! While Catherine was our youngest audience member, our oldest included subscribers from Salford (former BNP activists) and Warwickshire (a former NSM activist).

Our audience and speaker panel included a former Member of the European Parliament, an elected borough councillor, and four former borough councillors.

Benny Bullman launched the meeting with a fine tribute to the founder of Blood & Honour, Ian Stuart, who was born 65 years ago in the Lancashire town of Poulton-le-Fylde. Benny’s organisation Rock Against Communism had just a few days ago held a commemoration for the 29th anniversary of Ian’s death. Benny emphasised that great comrades such as Ian Stuart still live with us in spirit and we are all determined to be worthy of their legacy.

Laura Towler then explained the cultural mission of Patriotic Alternative, which for the past three years has been fighting to get across the message that White Lives Matter – across a broad front of activities from demonstrations to leafletting, mountain hikes to tea retailing! PA has grown rapidly in its three years of existence, despite the handicaps of pandemic conditions, and has combined some of the best veterans of older nationalist parties with a proven ability to attract the best of the younger online nationalist community.

After our lunch interval, a brief unscheduled speech was given by Mike Whitby of British Voice, advertising a forthcoming demonstration regarding the still unsolved murder of Blackpool schoolgirl Charlene Downes. (This demo went ahead with speeches including this pertinent observation by Alek Yerbury from Yorkshire PA.)

Isabel Peralta (speaking in Spanish with an English translation being read by Peter Rushton) explained that our faith in the true European cause was capable of moving mountains: the united force of national socialists across the world will rescue Europe from its kidnappers. We close our ranks with the spirit of those who preceded us: we have truth on our side. National socialism is not a utopia or a historical curiosity, but a vital living idea. Our activists will not be swayed by careerist considerations or media hostility.

Dr Jim Lewthwaite, archaeologist and former Bradford city councillor, now chairman of the British Democrats, hailed the breakdown of the multiracial, multicultural society. Based partly on his father’s experiences in the British Raj as well as recent events in Leicester, Jim argued that the non-White takeover of many towns and cities was now leading to intense conflict between rival non-White factions. The British Democrats are now beginning to attract significant numbers of experienced activists as well as those new to electoral politics, and within the past year have achieved some strong results at the ballot box.

Professor John Kersey, educationalist and musician, who leads several international university-level institutions dedicated to bespoke professional education for high achievers, gave a cogent analysis of the burgeoning threats to traditional British values and freedoms – and to the Christian values that are the bedrock of British and European civilization. The dictatorial grip of the political establishment is at last being resisted: the forces of resistance are no longer marginalised – our agenda of maintaining and restoring British traditions is now at the centre of political debate.

Stephen Frost – National Secretary of the British Movement, longstanding friend of Colin Jordan and author of the Colin Jordan biography ‘TWAS A GOOD FIGHT’!, acknowledged that our movement of resistance to multicultural decay is a ‘broad church’ of patriots, not all of whom by any means are national socialists (as represented by BM and Colin Jordan’s earlier organisations). Yet as he emphasised, BM has always been prepared to lend its support to sincere comrades from other groups and parties – in the spirit of Richard Edmonds, Colin Jordan and John Tyndall. CJ and JT had famously fallen out, but only for a very short time in the mid-1960s, and while operating in different movements and styles they shared a core ideological commitment. Our task is to spread propaganda for our cause by any and every means and format: the propaganda war is bringing increasing numbers to realisation of the essential truth of our values.

Peter RushtonAssistant Editor of Heritage and Destiny magazine, historian, author of the new Real History Blog, and TV commentator, pointed out that our previous Preston gathering had been in 2017 which was the year that the word ‘woke’ entered the Oxford English Dictionary. Wokeness means the opposite of ‘awake’ – it means passive acceptance of the surrender of our civilisation. More than a century ago the early Labour movement’s anthem was not the Red Flag but England Arise – which included lines that would today be supported more by adherents of our cause than by 21st century leftists.

Peter also examined the development of the UK’s oppressive race laws, which have now been extended to use of the misnamed Terrorism Act for the purpose of political harassment. The previous evening our Spanish guest Isabel Peralta had been detained for hours at Manchester Airport under the Terrorism Act, which meant that she and Peter had less than 90 minutes sleep before heading to the meeting!

Our audience included a former MEP, a serving councillor, ex-councillors and officials from several different nationalist parties.

A separate article later this week will discuss this outrageous abuse of the Terrorism Act.

In addition to the speakers there was an auction and raffle of items donated by H&D‘s friends around the world.

In his speech of thanks to these donors and to our speakers, H&D editor Mark Cotterill said that having now published 110 issues of our magazine, we are determined to carry on as one of the very few hard-copy nationalist publications still in existence. We believe that even in the world of Facebook and YouTube there is an important role for hard-copy publications but of course we depend on subscribers and donors to make our publication possible.

Special thanks to the British Movement Women’s Division who provided an excellent buffet; and to the British Movement Leader Guard who carried out security duties in their usual highly efficient manner to ensure that our speakers and audience were entirely safe from the ‘antifa’ violence that sometime targets nationalist events.

Before the meeting and during the intervals, our audience browsed stalls from several different nationalist groups and journals.

H&D author banned by Twitter: Elon Musk’s new ‘freedom’ policy fails first test (video update)

H&D writer Isabel Peralta – banned by Twitter

The May issue of H&D featured the first English-translated article by Isabel Peralta – brightest star of a new generation of European nationalists. Isabel has previously been banned from Twitter, but in a test of the new ‘freedom of expression’ policy outlined after the takeover by Elon Musk, on May 2nd she launched a new account at https://twitter.com/isabel_mperalta

Soon after midnight on 18th June, this account was banned, despite Elon Musk’s repeated ‘freedom’ pledge. It seems that violent anti-fascists are welcome on Twitter, but even under the new regime Isabel Peralta is not. Elon Musk seems to be just another hypocrite in thrall to ‘woke’ definitions of political acceptability.

Shortly before her banning, a Twitter post from Isabel about ‘discrimination’ went viral and was widely reported in the Spanish mainstream press.

Now denied access to Twitter, Isabel has made the video below (with English subtitles added by H&D) to explain the background to last week’s controversy.

For those new to Isabel’s work, above is a new English-subtitled version of the introductory video on her YouTube channel. (I had edited out the now-defunct Instagram and Twitter links and inserted the new Twitter account, but of course this is also now inoperative.)

Also now available for the first time with English subtitles is Isabel’s discussion of proposals for a ‘historical memory law’ in Spain. See video below.

She discusses the Spanish state’s threat to exhume José Antonio Prime de Rivera – founder of the Falange, murdered by communists in November 1936 – from his tomb at the Valle de los Caidos (‘Valley of the Fallen’) outside Madrid, and explains the history of José Antonio and the Falange.

The grotesque politically motivated ‘democratic memory’ law that proposes to criminalise alternative views of Spanish history remains on the Spanish left-wing government’s agenda, although (at least temporarily) they have had to withdraw the threat to desecrate José Antonio’s grave.

H&D will continue to report on the battle for historical truth – see our assistant editor’s new Real History blog.

Please note that Isabel Peralta presently has only two official accounts/channels: one on Twitter and one on YouTube. She has no connection with other accounts using her name. If she does open any new accounts, we will update this page accordingly.

Isabel’s work will continue to appear in translation at H&D, and we shall report here on her battle to be allowed to speak the truth online.

A practical plan for the migration crisis – new video

Lady Michèle Renouf – campaigner for the right to normal free research and historical argument in Europe – outlines a practical proposal for Europe’s migration crisis. The ‘Modified Sachs Concept’ was developed by retired medical scientist Dr Gunther Kümel as an extension of the international aid proposals published by Dr Jeffrey Sachs, an American economist.

Many people complain about the migration crisis: very few offer any detailed practical proposals such as those discussed here by Lady Renouf.

This speech was delivered earlier this month at a conference hosted by Patriotic Alternative, and Lady Renouf is introduced here by PA’s chairman Mark Collett.

Please note that in the event of any problem streaming the video from this site, it is also available via H&D’s Instagram account at https://www.instagram.com/p/CbhwBmAp_6f/

Many thanks to videographer Tony Avery for all his excellent work on this project.

H&D extends social media presence for 2022

As we make final proof changes for Issue 106 of the magazine, which will be printed immediately after the holidays, we have begun expanding our online activities with new social media accounts.

Heritage and Destiny will remain essentially a hard-copy print operation, delivering six issues every year of our magazine representing a cross-section of 21st century racial nationalist opinion and activity – and featuring articles and reviews on political, cultural, historical and meta-political aspects of our cause.

For us – unlike many of our colleagues in nationalism – our website and social media will always be a supplement to (rather than replacement for) print publication.

However we did think it was time for expansion of our online presence, so we now have new Instagram and Gab accounts, in addition to the Twitter account and our editor’s longstanding personal Facebook account.

Broadly speaking, the division of responsibilities will be that our assistant editor will run the Instagram and Gab accounts, while the editor runs the Twitter and Facebook accounts – although matters of great interest arising from social media will doubtless be considered by the entire H&D team.

We look forward to hearing from readers in the New Year, in whatever format!

There will also be occasional videos posted to YouTube as well as Instagram, such as this English-subtitled version of the film made by Isabel Peralta inspired by Dr Pierre Krebs’ book Fighting for the Essence – book that is also reviewed by Peter Rushton here and in Issue 66 of the magazine.

Another addition for 2022 is that just as our editor can be reached both by email and Facebook, our assistant editor can be now contacted on Telegram.
