Anti-fascism is the opposition to fascist ideologies, organizations, governments and people.

There is a difference between anti-fascism as a political movement, and personal opposition to fascism. In the broadest sense, an anti-fascist is anyone who disagrees with fascism or engages in anti-fascist direct action. This includes most mainstream political parties and groups in the Western world, including both leftists and rightists. Anti-fascist political movements have been historically associated with left-wing movements such as anarchism, communism and socialism. However, many anti-fascists aren't associated with those ideologies. Another term for anti-fascism (or anti-fascists) is antifa.
