Avante Anthem of the Brazilian Integralist Action

 

About Avante Anthem of the Brazilian Integralist Action:

the AIB was one of the two main parties during the aftermath of the Revolution of 1930 and early times of Getúlio Vargas’ New-State. Created by Plínio Salgado, the AIB was a fascist, moralist and anti-semite, although many may claim that these weren’t the party’s main concerns, and some historians may even say that fascism wasn’t the party’s main ideology, only a branch of it adopted the fascist ideal.

Anyways, the integralists adopted many of the symbols of nazi-fascism, such as the Roman salute (replacing “Heil Hitler” or “EIA EIA Alalà” for “Anauê”, which means “You are my brother”), a monochromatic color as the party’s uniform and a symbol (the Greek Sigma, which means “strength through unity”), etc.

The AIB, inspired by Mussolini’s March on Rome, tried to march on Rio de Janeiro, the capital at that time, and overthrow Vargas, creating the Integral State. But the coup failed, for the green shirts failed on communicating with the Navy (a strong supporter of the AIB), and those who participated on it were either killed or imprisoned, and the party was outlawed and closed, being re-opened in 2005.
