THE INDEPENDENT – VICKIE OLIPHANT
Anarchists were accused of planning to hijack anti-Trump protests across America yesterday, with the alt-right warning of the “Antifa apocalypse”.
The apocalyptic narrative took hold despite the fact that the leftist groups planning to protest yesterday only have dubious connections to Antifa.
Left-wing action group Refuse Fascism organised a series of non-violent anti-Trump protests in 20 cities across the United States, including in Honolulu, in a bid to unseat Donald Trump.
And it seems the event went of largely without incident, wth Antifa civil war fears proving unfounded as police reported a distinct lack of criminal damage or violence.
