(1) Overview: Introductory articles about ANTIFA, its history, motivations and objectives
(2) Articles & reports about ANTIFA: A sampling of the latest news articles and reports about ANTIFA and its domestic terrorism campaigns
Terrorism: “Violence – or equally important, the threat of violence – used and directed in pursuit of, or in service of, a political aim.”
ANTIFA is a loose network of independently-run, violent, fanatical leftist and anarchist terror groups. They claim to exist to mount “resistance” to “fascism,” which they define as anyone who opposes their socialist, communist or anarchist ideas. Unlike neo-Nazi, white nationalist and Islamist terrorist groups, however, ANTIFA enjoys widespread support from many in Western news, educational and entertainment industries, because they (a) share a common, anti-capitalist, leftist core ideology, and (b) loathe President Trump.
Here are some introductory articles about ANTIFA. The next section presents a sampling of news articles and investigative reports about it.
