OYOGist.com has learned that the United States of America is reportedly set to designate ANTIFA a terrorist organisation.
ANTIFA stands for Anti-fascism, a political protest movement comprising autonomous groups affiliated by their militant opposition to fascism and other forms of extreme right-wing ideology.
Donald Trump made this announcement on his verified Twitter handle on Sunday, the 31st of May.
Trump had blamed ANTIFA for the violent protests that have been happening in the country for the past few days over the death of George Floyd a Black American who was murdered by a former White Police officer in Minnesota.
Los Angeles in California has been the hit of the violent protests as police and civilians who are mostly blacks have clashed leading to the burning of some Police cars. In California, a state of emergency has been declared and a curfew imposed from 5: 30 am to 8pm.
The murder of George Floyd has sparked protests in major cities in the United States. The National Guard are patrolling to force protesters to stay in their houses in order to prevent further protests.
Also, outside the US, many people have protested at the US Embassies in Berlin and Dublin to express their displeasure over the murder of George Floyd by Derek Chauvin.
