You go, girl! PUNK ROCK
“The French redskin movement (skinheads of communist tendency) was born under unique conditions around the years 1984-86. On one hand, a very tough economic and political situation, characterized by massive unemployment, the beginning of neoliberal politics, and which saw the installation in France of a very large extreme-right movement represented by the National Front. On the other hand, the appearance of an alternative cultural movement (a mix of French punk rock, political protest, and multiculturalism). Around the Bérurier Noir (band of anarchist inclination) a new type of security group was created, which was put in charge of protecting shows and to stop the entrance of fascists. Many “crews” were formed in France, more or less legendary, like the “Lenin Killers”, “Red Action Skinhead”, “Ducky Boys”, “Red Ants”, and in Marseilles, the “Marseilles Red Army”. But the first and more important crew of French redskins which stimulated all the others was the “Red Warriors” — without a doubt they were the detonator of a certain form of facing radical anti-fascism.”
