There’s been a bit of news before about fake antifa social media accounts, most of which are run by right-wing trolls.

This series is an attempt to acknowledge and reflect on the history of militant resistance throughout the territories of so-called Canada.

As the old saying goes, we learn from the past to prepare in the present and defend the future.
