massive hinchadas unidas argentina flag
The dozens meter long banner of hinchadas unidas argentina - a, um, nonprofit organization comprised of leading barra bravas (hooligans) representing dozens of teams in Argentina. This is one of the banners that they brought to the World Cup in South Africa. I filmed this at the Quilmes beer camp for Argentina fans, set up outside the stadium in Polokwane, South Africa, where many of the Argentina fans had congregated prior to the Argentina vs Greece match. The barra bravas were in good spirits and seemed to be getting alomg great with each other - a marked difference from the violent clashes with each other they engage in back home. It;s important to note that the barra bravas of several teams, such as River Plate or Boca Juniors, did not particiapte in the Hinchadas Unidas Argentinas trip.
