Antifa Protesters Take to Streets After Boris Johnson’s U.K. Victory

Valerie Richardson, The Washington Times, December 15, 2019

Hundreds of antifa and socialist protesters clashed with police in London hours after Boris Johnson’s triumphant election victory, prompting critics to accuse the anti-fascist activists of being anti-democratic.

The activists swarmed outside U.K. government buildings in Whitehall, chanting, “One solution, revolution” and “Tory scum, off our streets” and pushing back against officers attempting to hold them back, as shown on video posted on social media.

Some protesters, some of whom wore black and covered their faces, could be seen waving a black-and-red antifa flag in the Thursday night melee. The “Defy Tory Rule” signs bore the “Socialist Worker” imprint.
