For as long as there's been fascism,
there's been anti-fascism
Read Mark Bray in the Washington Post.
In the wake of tragic events in Charlottesville, VA, and Donald Trump’s initial refusal to denounce the white nationalists behind it all, the “antifa” opposition movement is suddenly appearing everywhere. But what is it, precisely? And where did it come from?
In Antifa, historian Mark Bray details the history of the movement founded to fight Hitler and Mussolini. Bray's investigation of the tactics and the philosophy behind it offers keen insight into the growing but little understood resistance fighting back against the alt-right today.
