  1. The contemporary antifa movement has its origins in West Germany, in the student-based Außerparlamentarische Opposition (extra-parliamentary opposition) of the 1960s and early 1970s which opposed the alleged "fascism" of the West German government.

  2. The English word antifa is a loanword from the German Antifa, where it is a shortened form of the word antifaschistisch ("anti-fascist") and a nickname of Antifaschistische Aktion (1932–1933), a short-lived group which inspired the wider antifa movement in Germany.

    As the picture of the logo in this article obviously doesn't show two red flags but a red and a black one, you could mention, that the black flag in the actuell logo is a symbol of anarchism. I don't want to edit in the article, emotions rising to high for me and due to my poor English.Shug (talk) 10:37, 14 January 2021 (UTC) 1. Shug-I think this i...

    This could perhaps get mentioned, that they had been declared a terroristic organization in the USA. (In 2019 or perhaps before.) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.144.221.12 (talk) 08:04, 17 December 2020 (UTC)

    An editor has bizarrely claimed that this article on a political current/movement in Germany is a fork of Antifascistisk Aktion, a tiny group described in its article as a far-left network in Sweden. This is of course patently wrong. The articles have literally nothingto do with each other whatsoever beyond sharing a somewhat similar title. The fac...

    The nomination for speedy deletion of Antifa (Germany) refers to Antifascistisk Aktion, but I wonder if the nominator, @Simonm223: did not mean Antifaschistische Aktion instead. If Antifa (Germany) is a WP:POVFORK, then Antifaschistische Aktion is a much more likely candidate than Antifascistisk Aktion. Note that the articles have been moved Vexati...

    This article should not be speedy deleted as being recently created, having no relevant page history and duplicating an existing English Wikipedia topic, because: See the above discussion; this is not a fork of anything, not of any unrelated Swedish group as falsely claimed in the speedy tag, and not of anything else, but a separate topic that has ...

    Shouldn't the template indicate that the deletion is contested when a corresponding section has been written here? --Tataral (talk) 15:18, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

    This section seems dubious to me. These are not scholarly assessments of Antifa (Germany) but opinions from an arbitrary selection of academics about the term "anti-fascism". What justifies them being here?BobFromBrockley (talk) 10:42, 16 September 2019 (UTC) 1. Bobfrombrockley, It reads as a POV attempt to link contemporary antifa to communism. Wh...

    Re this edit by Tataral. (Tataral, could you use the edit summaries for your edits please?) Tataral inserts the text Do not describe the groups or individuals that Antifa opposes as "fascists" in Wikipedia's voice; many of them, like the German government, social democrats and others, are not considered fascists by anyone outside of the Antifa move...

    This edit seems to me to contradict the text in the body. Social Democrats and Christians were clearly not "remnants" of AFA, but of the wider anti-fascist movement. "Local Antifa committees were created across Germany in the wake of the defeat of the Nazis in 1945" summarises what our body says and what its sources say. BobFromBrockley (talk) 14:5...

    I don't understand the relevance of the Antonia Grunenberg quote in the "Main factions and ideology" section of the article. Her book does not talk about Antifa. It talks about anti-fascism. The terms are not synonymous. So here it just feels like editorialising with undue weight. There are plenty of more left-wing commentators that would dispute h...

    Antifaschistische Aktion was a militant anti-fascist organisation in the Weimar Republic started by members of the Communist Party of Germany that existed from 1932 to 1933. It was primarily active as a KPD campaign during the July 1932 German federal election and the November 1932 German federal election and was described by the KPD as a "red unit...

    The late 1920s and early 1930s saw rising tensions mainly between three broad groups, the Communist Party of Germany on one side, the Nazi Party on another and a coalition of governing parties, mainly social democrats and liberals, on the other side. Berlin in particular was the site of regular and often very violent clashes. Both the Communists an...

    After a brawl in the Landtag of Prussia between members of the Nazi Party and the KPD left eight people severely injured, the KPD under Thälmann's leadership reacted to the establishment of the Harzburg Front and the Iron Front with a call for their own Unity Front which they shortly after renamed Antifaschistische Aktion. The KPD formally announce...

Known as the wider antifa movement, modern antifa groups have no direct organisational connection to Antifaschist...
