The tweet contained a link to a page where NYC Antifa suggests supporters “buy an awesome t-shirt to show your solidarity.”
The t-shirt, which says “support Antifa prisoners” is $21.99. The product description says “these shirts directly support anti-fascist prisoners worldwide.”
Antifascists, or Antifa, is a radical anarchist group and “a piece of the struggle against capitalism,” according to an August 2017 tweet from NYC Antifa.
“We’re for the international destruction of capitalism,” the organization tweeted in December 2016.

Antifa is pretty universally anticapitalist, yet many different Antifa groups sell merchandise.
“No Gods No Masters,” an Antifa site, sells 463 different Antifa t-shirts. The shirts are $15.
The purchases are funding “an average of $2200USD per month” to anti-fascist causes, such as The International Anti-Fascist Defense Fund, which is “used to provide immediate support to anti-fascists … whenever they found themselves in a difficult situation as a result of their stand against hate.” (RELATED: Women’s Protest Says Pence ‘Ushering In A Theocratic Society’)
“It’s Going Down,” an Antifa blog and store, also sells t-shirts, along with stickers, buttons, and even a hammock. For $125, one can buy a hammock “by Mexican Anarchist Prisoner Miguel Prelalta” or a $20 “On A Mission Sticker Pack” with branded “It’s Going Down” stickers.
All of the proceeds go to funding the “It’s Going Down” website and “radical projects.”
“Antifa United” sells Antifa-branded hats, shirts, backpacks, pins, scarves, and more. For $20, Antifa supporters can own a wool scarf, and for five dollars a bottle opener that says “LOVE BEER HATE FASCISM.”
The online store is “solely to fundraise for antifascist causes, often for comrades in need of medical care or legal defense.”
