The antifa, short for anti-fascist, movement in the United States is a militant left-wing, anti-fascist political activist movement. It is made up of activist groups that protest with the use of direct action instead of policy changes.

The methods include protesting, digital activism, property damage, physical violence and harassment against those who they see as fascist, racist, or on the far-right.

The movement has anti-capitalist views and support anarchism, communism, liberalism, social democracy and socialism.

It has been called a terrorist movement by President Donald Trump after the group took part in the George Floyd protests in 2020.
