South America's Skinheads

The first skinheads were born in São Paulo (Brazil) in the year 1981. "Carecas Do Suburbio" called themselves. They were nationalist skinheads and come from the punk background, they were fed up with the drug, gay and communist degeneration of the movement. Years later are formed the "Carecas do ABC." The skinheads youth begun to extend to other cities of Brazil like Rio de Janeiro, Parana, Porto Alegre, Brasilia, etc. In 1985 in Brazil was carried out a gig with bands Oi!, punk and hardcore that finished with several deaths, wounded and 120 detainees. It was known as "black December." The skinheads get quick a reputation of violents thanks to their fights with gays, punks and commies.
In 1984 was formed the first Skinhead band in Argentina, called "Comando Suicida". At the end of the 80 in Brazil had around 1.000 skinheads and in Argentina 150.

In 1989, in Brazil the movement skinhead was divided among the integrationalist skins and also nationalists that accept blacks and half-breeds in to their orgs (Carecas do ABC, Carecas do Suburbio, carecas do Brazil) and the Skinheads White Power. The first NS skinhead band in Brazil was GSB (Grupo Separatista Branco). The WP skins are separatist, because they consider the San Pablo state as a White region and are against the immigrants of the north and north east because most of them are blacks and delinquents.

This happened in the environs of Rivadavia Park where the MNO had a book stand, and the skinheads and patriots used to go there. In the environs of that zone the anarchist punks made a festival against the police repression, in a determinate moment they decide to attack the book stand, in which were skinheads and young Ns, in total 20 persons more or less; the scum was a mob of more than 100 persons, and in this attack was cowardly murdered the comrade Marcelo Scalera.
