One of the former Redskins members owns an antifa pub in Paris:

The vimeo account has been shutdown for awhile so I changed it to an alternative upload.

The video is fascinating. The Ducky Boys were gangs of multi-ethnic anti-racists who were into 50s American rock, claiming the legacy of the Black Panthers -- and wearing the U.S. flag and "Panther" on their clothes. Their enemies were the racist Rebels, who wore the Confederate flag on their leather jackets.

I don't think I knew this was a film.
I remember a big "Antifa - chasseurs des skins" poster going up near the top of Menilmontant, it got pulled down after a few days with red/black skins graffiti put up where it was.
