Script error: No such module "AfC submission catcheck". Byron C. Clark is a New Zealand left-wing activist and YouTuber known for monitoring right-wing extremism online.[1][2] This has lead to him being doxxed, harassed and threatened.[3][4]

Clark began following the alt-right in the aftermath of the Gamergate controversy. He started making video essays about the far-right on YouTube following the Christchurch mosque shootings.[5]

Clark praised Twitter for banning approximately 70,000 QAnon-related accounts following the 2021 storming of the United States Capitol, but noted that something should have been done sooner.[6] He called on other platforms, particularly YouTube, to do the same.[7]

He stood for parliament for the Workers Party of New Zealand in Christchurch Central twice, in 2005 and 2008. He also stood for the Workers Party in the 2007 Christchurch mayoral election, however in the 2010 mayoral election he stood with no party affiliation. All electoral pursuits have been unsuccessful.[8][9][10][11]
