Antifa or Antifascist (Anti Fascist) Anarchist: Political Islam is now in Southern Mexico and Latin America
Antifaschistische Aktion, Antifascistische Aktie or Antifascistisk Aktion — abbreviated as Antifa (German/Dutch) or AFA (Scandinavian) — is a far-left, extra-parliamentary, anti-fascist network in Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, whose stated goal is to “smash fascism in all its forms”. Some of its members are influenced by the theory of triple oppression; its members oppose sexism, racism, and classism. The point of the organization is to exchange information and to coordinate activities between local groups.
The group’s activities have included handing out flyers, organizing demonstrations and engaging in direct action. They believe that physical aggression is inevitable in the struggle against fascism. In line with their ideology, and as a consequence of being constantly monitored by the police, the group has no central authority. This means it has a flat organization consisting of many independent groupings, without a board or leader. AFA works with other anti-racist groups all over Europe. It is also described as a heterogeneous group which in the 1940s was mostly made up of social democrats, communists, and progressive Christians.
