Corvallis Against Fascism
Field Guide – Fall 2021
CVAntifa is an Antifascist collective operating in Corvallis, Oregon since 2018. We began due to an extreme increase in local and regional far-right activity, as well as neo-Nazi attacks on minority and left wing groups. We aim to serve Corvallis and the Willamette Valley by providing accurate intel about fascist and far-right organizing, disrupting their activity, and providing community defense.
CVA has been a part of the Torch Network, America’s most prevalent Antifascist coalition, since 2020.

hey, im not sure if you’ve already heard about this but right now there’s a guy standing by himself in front of the bi-mart on 9th and circle carrying a sign that says “antifa lets talk” he’s got a handgun on his belt so idk if thats what he’s really looking for. idk who is is cuz he’s got a green bandana on as a mask but you’ll notice him right away; he’s really obvious, wearing camo shorts, some kind of body armor. I was driving but here’s the best pic i could get.
