Portland Antifa has established a summer camp for children that indoctrinates them in Marxist propaganda, including “reflecting on white supremacy” and advocating for incarcerating police officers.

In its mission statement, Black Rose Anarchist Federation calls itself “an organization of revolutionaries …
