Anti-fascists? Usually of the more extreme kind. Also, AIUI an American right wing term of abuse towards people they call socialists. That is probably every UK politician left of Tommy Robinson!!!

A tube of fabric that makes either a warm scarf/ face shield, or twisted in the middle and folded over, a double layered watch cap. Sometimes called a snood, though that's usually a hair covering now.
I'll find an image.

Thanks. I hope you ding an image. If it’s what your description sounds like the fishermen’s here use thin ones out on the water to protect face and neck from sun and wind. I don’t know if they have a name for it here though.

You’re close. They’re pretty much always the extreme kind (not just usually) You’re a bit further off by who uses the term though: that would be most of the American people (including most of the left wing that aren’t too extreme) I’ll send a video of them to you but it’s not suitable for open forum

I thought those folk wore balaclavas ??

Sorry @santaman2000, the images came through kind of titchy, didn't they ?

I'll find another.M
Please do. I’d like to see it. Meanwhile here’s the one I meant fishermen here wear. He’s wearing it pulled up at the beginning of the video. When not needed they usually pull them down like a scarf like some of the later footage. I suppose that might be a balaclava but it looks like the neck hole is a bit bigger?

Yeah that's a buff.

"Buff" is just a brand name that's become the generic term

People on the British Isles should consider themself lucky if they don't know what Antifa is. Think of a SS Sondereinheit without weapons (mostly so far) but gone crazy and partly without any control.


You have many Antifa incidents in Finland? ( I think I have your location correct ).

Wow massive thread drift again :)
How do people feel about wearing masks in public.?

Should wear them to protect ourselves or others from the virus a much as possible.?

Totaly unessasary

Infringes on my rights as a human to contract or spread covid if I want to

Any other opinions?
The government here seem to be at odds saying it's not going to be made compulsory. We should wear them if we think it nessasary but I don't think most people take it seriously and if they can get away with not having one they will.
But in other countries it is.
WHO don't seem to be able to give a definitive answer to the question one way or another.
It was the same when seat belts and helmets were introduced. Left to ourselves most didn't bother... untill it became mandatory .
I don't believe Joe ordainary will wear one unless they have to by law and consequently this outbreak will take a larger toll on life .
With an invisible enemy it's easy to be complacent and ignore it.

I have never heard the word antifa and I hadn't a clue about the SS Sondereinheit either. I had heard of the SS though, just not the rest of the name.
The UK was fortunate in many ways.

Round here we're still just getting past the religious bigotry (both sides). We don't need to import any others.:rolleyes:


Mask ?
They must be worn in shops here, and on public transport too. Dentist and Doctor visits too, folks must turn up wearing a mask.
Most are wearing them any place that they will be in close contact with folks they don't live with or 'social bubble' with.

Reading my news feed today. I have read a couple of articles that give me cause for concern enough to think that wearing a mask should be mandatory.
To quickly summarise.
55%of patients who had covid bad enough to be hospitalised show signs of heart damage In one small study. There were no known problems before.
I know it's a small study but it's not easy to scan everyone in an emergency situations even after recovery as others need a scan to for other conditions. It's still a worryingly high number.
Evidence shows that immunity doesn't last more than a few months, and that you can catch it again. Secondary infections can be more severe.
Another study shows changes to the brain. . ie brain damage
Now I'm totaly aware that a face covering is not 100%effective... but is that a reason not to wear one?

Can you share your sources on these please? Particularly the immunity evidence.

Thanks
