  • Trump calls for U.S. anti-fascists to be listed as 'terror group'

The followers of antifa generally are on the look-out to hunt down anything which is fascist, racist and far-right groups from having a platform to promote their views. "This is a time of mass outrage at an unjust system", Scott Crow of Austin, Texas, a spokesperson for Agency, an anarchist public relations effort, said in a release.

People associated with antifa have been present for significant demonstrations and counterdemonstrations over the past three years, sometimes involving brawls and property damage. It was back in 2017 when they first gained real attention in Portland, Oregon when they clashed with white supremacists at the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally.

Violent protests continue in the United States on Monday for the sixth night in a row over the death of a black civilian George Flyod at the hands of a white police officer.

In a pair of statements over the weekend, Attorney General William Barr described "antifa-like tactics" by out-of-state agitators and said antifa was instigating violence and engaging in "domestic terrorism" and would be dealt with accordingly.

But it's unclear how big its involvement is.

Demonstrators gather to protest the death of George Floyd, near the White House on May 31, 2020 in Washington, DC.

In the global arena, there has been many concerns that some Antifa activists have joined the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG), the Syrian affiliate of the PKK terror group, in Syria, where they received military training. Then again, simply saying that all of the protests are led by Antifa is a radical mistake.

This culminated with the president's Sunday announcement that "The United States of America will be designating ANTIFA as a Terrorist Organization".

It's not the first time he's endorsed that approach.

In addition, according to this article by the BBC, Antifa members aim to build "a movement that really insulates us from the policies of Donald Trump".

Other than their opposition to right-wing ideologies, there is little binding the Antifa movement's adherents together. Christopher Wray, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director, has raised concerns about the increase of white supremacist activity driving the domestic terror threat - in some cases surpassing that from foreign terrorist groups.
