Blood and Honour
Blood & Honour (B&H) is an international neo-nazi network known for its production and promotion of racist music. Chapters of the network organize white supremacist concerts all over the world. Members have also perpetrated acts of violence, including the murder of two homeless men in Florida and the firebombing of a building mainly occupied by Romani families in the Czech Republic. Individuals affiliated with B&H mainly obtain funds through self-financing or selling hateful music. Keep reading to learn more about the network’s financial activities.
Origins and Operations
B&H was founded in 1987 in the United Kingdom by Ian Stuart Donaldson and Nicky Crane. Throughout the 1990s, the group established branches throughout Europe and North America, including in Canada. Partly because B&H affiliated groups infiltrated the city, Calgary developed a reputation as the neo-Nazi epicentre of Canada. While the exact size of B&H is unknown, the network claims to have branches in at least 18 countries and almost two dozen chapters in the UK alone. This means the network likely has hundreds, if not thousands, of members.
Much of B&H’s operations are centered around organizing white supremacist concerts and disseminating propaganda. However, several B&H members have both planned and perpetrated neo-Nazi terrorist attacks – especially throughout the UK.
