Facebook Bans Anti-Fascist and Anarchist Groups Along with QAnon Conspiracy Pages

HeadlineAug 20, 2020

Facebook has removed nearly 800 QAnon groups as part of a broader purge. Facebook also removed several prominent anti-fascist and anarchist pages, including ones connected to the sites CrimethInc.com and ItsGoingDown.org, which criticized the purge, saying, “Suppressing the voices of those who seek to protect their communities from institutional and white supremacist violence is an intentional decision to normalize violence as long as the ones employing it hold institutional power.”
