Antifa (United States): Anti-fascist political activist movement in the United States
Antifa is an anti-fascist political movement in the United States comprising a diverse array of autonomous groups that aim to achieve their objectives through the use of both non-violent and violent direct action rather than through policy reform. Antifa political activists engage in protest tactics such as digital activism and militancy, sometimes involving property damage, and physical violence and harassment against fascists, racists and those on the far-right.
