Confronting hate: How Antifa is tracking the extreme right

The Fifth Estate takes you inside a secret world that many people have no idea even exists — the world of activists willing to risk their personal security to confront organized hate groups known as the far right. Host Gillian Findlay goes on a virtual ride-along with undercover members of a loose collective known as Antifa, who are willing to go to extreme lengths — counter-protest, outing individuals they accuse of belonging to hate-groups, and even using violence themselves — to expose those they believe are undermining the norms and values of Canadian society. And they are doing it, they say, whether we like it or not.
