A student Antifa group taught University of Texas at Austin students “self-defense” Saturday.

University of Texas at Austin’s Revolutionary Student Front group tweeted it would resume “weekly self-defense classes.” It posted a photo of communist soldiers along with its advertisement.

“Our first class is going to be hosted at UT on Saturday at 1:00 PM on the green space by the turtle pond,” the group said. “Dress in comfortable workout clothes (high for the day is 54°) and bring some water!”

However, it appears the student group promotes actions surpassing mere self-defense.

“Bricks belong best thrown at pig heads!” the Revolutionary Student Front said in October.

The organization also believes “white supremacy is at the heart of American values.”


Revolutionary Student Front describes itself as “an organization for revolutionary anti-capitalist students in Austin, Texas.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Revolutionary Student Front but received no comment in time for press. TheDCNF also contacted a student who indicated interest in the class, but she declined to comment upon being denied compensation for her comment.
