WOW! This is… well… ok so an Antifa (Anti First Amendment) group out of Chicago called the Haymaker Collection (LOL WHAT?!) has began raising money using the social platform Indiegogo for an “anti-fascist, anti-sexist, anti-racist” “self-defense gym”…
From their Indiegogo page, they endeavor to create “a space where people, regardless of ability, can learn the skills they need to stay safe in Trump’s America.” They are seeking to “create a space where femmes and people of color can train to strike back.”
“Haymaker is an autonomous gym that is starting up in Chicago”, said one guy with a pony tail. “The aim is to establish more networks of self-defense.”
“We’re trying to develop self-defense skills in a political climate that is increasingly violent, especially towards marginalized people, people who are not in power, the poor, the oppressed”, said another man.
“A lot of people think that when you learn how to fight it’s all about being aggressive and learning about how to go start fights with people. That’s not what we’re about at all,” said another trainee.
Anyway, just watch the video… and comment telling us what you thought!
