There are known to be Skins active in South Africa, although estimates of their number are difficult to come by. Most are active in the Johannesburg area. In one suburb, Yeoville, there are reported to be 20 Skinehads, mostly English-speaking, who have at times displayed a Nazi flag, along with the banner of the paramilitary neo-Nazi Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB). Late in 1992, there were several incidents in Yeoville in which blacks were beaten by Skinheads; in one such attack an apartment was firebombed. Skins have more recently been observed with their boots and heavily tattooed bodies at rallies of the AWB, headed by the terrorist Eugene Terreblanche. One Skinhead has reported that many Skins hold positions of rank in the AWB. (Anti-Defamation League, 65) Work Cited Anti-Defamation League.
