Your Call: Antifa's history from its origins to the present day

Nov 14, 2017


As long as there has been fascism, there has been anti-fascism — also known as antifa.

Mark Bray, a former Occupy Wall Street organizer writes about the history of this movement in his new book Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook. He argues that antifa aims to deny fascists the opportunity to promote their oppressive politics, and to protect tolerant communities from acts of violence promulgated by fascists. 


What questions do you have about this growing movement? Antifa organizers say fascism must never be allowed to triumph again. Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar, and you.
