Just over 24 years ago a unity demonstration backed by the British National Party and an alliance of other patriots and opponents of terrorism almost led to the assassination of IRA sympathiser Ken Livingstone, who was then a Labour MP and later became Mayor of London.
The story is revealed in a new book Left-Right-Loyalist by Frank Portinari, former London commander for the Ulster Defence Association.
Today the Daily Star on Sunday broke the news under an “exclusive” headline: Second Northern Irish assassination plot on Ken Livingstone uncovered. Later the same story was picked up by the Mail on Sunday.
Many H&D readers will remember the anti-IRA demonstration on 30th January 1993. Hundreds of patriots blocked the path of IRA supporters from the Troops Out Movement, who intended to march from Hyde Park to Kilburn (London’s Irish republican heartland).
Frank Portinari reveals in his new book that the intention was for the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF) to use ensuing chaos to assassinate Livingstone:
“Livingstone’s provocative support for Irish republican terrorists and their apologists made him public enemy number one. A UFF unit decided to assassinate Livingstone on the day of the march. A volunteer on a motorbike would be parked nearby to transport the gunman to a safe house.”
However huge numbers of police intervened to protect the IRA marchers and their friend Livingstone. At least 296 BNP and Loyalist demonstrators were arrested – in fact the true figure was over 400, since many were released once transported some distance from Hyde Park, and hundreds more were ordered to disperse under threat of arrest.
One leading BNP activist well known to H&D rallied a group to break through the police lines: they almost succeeded, but police just about kept control and were then reinforced. Livingstone survived and was elected Mayor of London from 2000 to 2008.
Several of our demonstrators were advised by sympathetic police officers to dispose of weapons before arriving at police stations.
Due to train delays our assistant editor was late arriving at Hyde Park. In those days before mobile phones he was surprised to see none of our comrades around, so followed the route of the IRA march into Kilburn, expecting to catch up with the counter-demonstration – not realising that all our people had been arrested or dispersed. Unfortunately he then found himself right in the heart of the IRA supporters at their rally outside the Sacred Heart church in Quex Road, Kilburn – but was then able to file a report for the BNP newspaper British Nationalist exposing the true nature of the speakers at this event, who gloated over the IRA’s murder of two British corporals.
The latest in a series of demonstrations outside Royal Holloway, University of London, scheduled for Saturday 4th March was postponed as a goodwill gesture due to another event taking place at the college this weekend.
These demonstrations are to highlight the disgraceful sacking of two college cleaning staff, dismissed for political activities which had no connection to their work.
H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton joined former NF and BNP national organiser Richard Edmonds and London Forum founder Jez Turner at a demonstration in Kensington, London, on August 7th to commemorate the victims of worldwide communism.
The event was held at the Yalta Memorial Garden, a site opposite the Victoria & Albert Museum. In 1982 this memorial was installed following a campaign led by Count Nikolai Tolstoy, specifically to remember the thousands of men, women and children deported by British authorities to face torture and execution at the hands of Stalin’s KGB and Red Army shortly after the Second World War.
The original memorial was wrecked by communist vandals at the instigation of the Soviet Embassy and had to be rebuilt and rededicated in 1986.
Video footage from this year’s memorial event can be viewed below.
On July 30th ex-servicemen and British patriots including members of many different parties and movements gathered at Trafalgar Square for a demonstration in memory of Forgotten British Heroes.
The event was held on the spot where in March 1947 Jewish terrorists exploded a bomb, at a social club for British colonial servicemen. The bomber – Robert Misrahi – escaped punishment and went on to become Professor of Ethical Philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris, one of the world’s most prestigious universities. Misrahi is still alive and politically active. The FBHC is liaising with Scotland Yard to secure his arrest, since he not only committed the London bombing but was a leading operative of the terrorist group – the Stern Gang – who sent a letter bomb which killed Rex Farran (young brother of British war hero Roy Farran) at his family home near Wolverhampton – a murder which remains officially unsolved.
Speakers at the demonstration and at a subsequent meeting in a central London hotel included veteran British nationalists Martin Webster and Richard Edmonds; London Forum founder Jez Turner; former BNP regional organiser Julie Lake; and H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton.
Video from the event can be seen below, and further information is available from the campaign website.
Since 1965 the NPD (National Democratic Party) have represented the interests of patriots in Germany. The NPD currently has one MEP and several councillors. Now, after the traitor Angela Merkel has flooded the country with millions of non-white invaders, she is seeking to silence all real opposition to the invasion by banning free speech and banning the NPD. The ruling regime in Europe is trying to shut down all opposition to White Genocide, in Greece they are trying to ban The Golden Dawn, now they’re doing the same thing in Germany, where next?
As British patriots we support German patriots & all patriots everywhere.
Free speech must mean free speech for patriots.
We say protect free speech and debate!
We say ban mad Merkel and support the NPD!
Keep Europe White!
Stop the invasion!

Well over a hundred nationalists representing several different groups united in Newcastle city centre on Saturday afternoon for the White Man March – asserting that the defence of our culture and our race is about far more than the EU-obsessed or Islam-obsessed agendas that have been so widely promoted.
Among the speakers was H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton: see video below.
While some groups such as the EDL seem proud to display Israeli flags – mocking the sacrifice of those British troops who died fighting against Zionist criminality and oppression more than 60 years ago – the White Man March signalled our rejection of that poisonous influence.
In doing so, demonstrators incurred the wrath of our politically correct police force: several arrests followed the burning of an Israeli flag – which is not a criminal offence in this country.
As police and their political masters struggled to conjure criminal charges, six nationalist comrades from England, Wales and Poland were detained overnight. The authorities released them (as they were legally obliged in the absence of a superintendent’s authority) after 24 hours.
The photograph below shows the released activists, whose clothes were retained by the police as ‘evidence’ (in reality of course just another form of petty official harassment) – hence the grey clothing issued by their jailers.
They must report back to the police station on May 26th after further ‘enquiries’ – in fact meaning further political consultations to try to manufacture ‘criminal’ charges.
H&D will report further on these matters when it is legally possible to do so.
European nationalists from across the factional and party spectrum demonstrated outside the Greek Embassy in London last weekend, in solidarity with the imprisoned leaders and activists of the Greek nationalist party Golden Dawn.
A noisy group of militant anti-fascists, led by Searchlight editor Gerry Gable, failed to prevent the demonstration, which was attended by a group of Polish nationalists from NOP Division England as well as members of Western Spring, the NF, British Movement, BNP, National Action, British Voice and New Dawn.
Heritage and Destiny assistant editor Peter Rushton was among the speakers at the rally: he pointed out that the Greek authorities had moved beyond Ken Livingstone’s dictum “if voting changed anything they’d abolish it” – in the new Greek version “if voting changes anything they’ll lock up your leaders and shoot your activists.”
It is not Golden Dawn or radical nationalism that is truly on trial in Greece today: it is the sham system of democracy itself, the system that has dominated Europe since 1945 but now would be better described by another Greek-derived word – kleptocracy, the rule of thieves.
For a video of the event, see below.
Heritage and Destiny‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton will be one of the speakers at a demonstration in solidarity with Golden Dawn, outside the Greek Embassy in London on 29th November.
The organisers have issued the following advice:
Just turn up at 12 noon at the embassy, situated literally a 2 minute walk from Holland Park underground station which is on the Central line. Demo goes on till around 2pm and is jointly being organised by New Dawn & the English division of Polish organisation NOP. Four (maybe five speakers): Polish language speaker from NOP, Kevin Layzell (Ex BNP), Max Musson of Western Springs and Peter Rushton, assistant editor H&D.
The event will be filmed, so those not wishing for their faces to be seen publicly, please wear a disguise of some sort. Also, anyone wishing to attend are advised to travel to and from the demo in small groups and not to wear anything distinguishing themselves as a nationalist.
Afterwards there will be an informal social in another part of London
For further information about this event, see the article by Max Musson at Western Spring.
Heritage and Destiny assistant editor Peter Rushton joined veteran nationalist Richard Edmonds and Voice of Albion radio host Paul Hickman as British delegates to a memorial march in Bad Nenndorf on August 2nd.
The march commemorated the torture of hundreds of (mostly German) prisoners after the end of World War II at an interrogation centre in the former spa resort of Bad Nenndorf, near Hanover in northern Germany.
Victims included many civilians and 44 women. Two prisoners died as a result of torture and starvation – policies enforced by MI5 officers who brought shame on the British Army. An official investigation led to the court-martial of four officers, but the proceedings were fixed by MI5 chiefs to ensure acquittal.
Hundreds of “anti-fascists”, supported by the present German authorities, attempted to block the march and drown out the speakers, but they failed to halt the memorial. The noise of the leftist mob is evident on the videos below, and is a sad reflection on the left’s disrespect for their own dead, but contrary to the crude boasting of German “anti-fascist” websites, it is clear from the videos below that speakers were not drowned out and the memorial was able to proceed.
Richard Edmonds addressed the march in German.
Peter Rushton spoke in English, with a German translation supplied by Richard Edmonds.
A group of British patriots, joined by several European comrades, assemble outside the Greek Embassy on November 9th to demonstrate in solidarity with Golden Dawn, the brave Greek nationalist party who enjoyed unprecedented electoral success earlier this year, but then faced a brutal crackdown by the supposed forces of democracy and legality.
The oppressive measures of the Greek government culminated in the murder of two Golden Dawn activists just eight days earlier.
Manolis Kapelonis and Giorgos Fountoulis were shot dead outside the Golden Dawn offices in Athens. British and European patriots pay tribute to their martyrdom in the cause of our continent’s renaissance.
A video of part of the demonstration can be viewed below.
