Far-left group HOPE not Hate (HnH) have been identified in a new research paper on far-left extremist violence alongside Antifa and other violent groups by the Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI) for their “infiltration and research” of political opponents.
The research paper lists the group, which has previously received funds from left-wing billionaire George Soros, as a facilitator of information for far-left extremists alongside the Swedish Expo Foundation, also funded by Soros, which objected to being included in the report earlier this week.
The FOI report states that the far-left scene often requests information on right-wing opponents, “that they want to hold to account in some way (for example by visiting people’s homes with threats and harassment) and sometimes they want information, names and pictures, to publicly identify those involved in nationalist movements”, and that organisations like Expo and HnH provide this information.
The report specifically lists an operation involving former Expo writer, now HnH researcher, Patrik Hermansson, who infiltrated the alt-right and far-right circles in the UK and the U.S. last year.
