The United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG) deleted a tweet they posted to Twitter on Friday after receiving public backlash for defending Antifa’s right to “freedom of expression” and “peaceful assembly.” The original tweet showed the Antifa flag with the text: “UN Human Rights experts express profound concern over a recent statement by the US Attorney-General describing Antifa and other anti-fascist activists as domestic terrorists, saying it undermines the rights to freedom of expression and of peaceful assembly in the country.”
