The organisation was created by Gilberto Santos e Castro, a former commando leader in Portuguese Angola. The European Parliament report by the Committee of Inquiry Into the Rise of Fascism and Racism in Europe defined its ideology as revolutionary fascist and hyper-nationalist.[1] The report also mentions close links to the Fuerza Nueva in Spain. Disbanded in 1982, it was said to continue its activities underground as of 1985, providing translations of CEDADE publications for distribution in Brazil.
