Eco-communities as a social vision

Eco-communities as a social vision
Egalitarian and ecological communities, like the pictured East Wind (, are very close to our vision of an ecological society

oi polloi, 1986

Resist the atomic menace, Album: Resist the atomic menace, 1986

In March 1984 an old age pensioner by the name of Hilda Murrell was stabbed to death when she surprised an Intruder at her home In Shrewsbury.

The Police treated the Incident as If It was just an ordinary burglary that had gone wrong - but it was not and they knew It. Hilda Murrell was murdered by the British Nuclear Industry.

A World famous rose grower, Hilda Murrell had been a campaigner for ecological sanity for many years and was In the process of writing a paper on the dangers of nuclear power to be presented at the Inquiry Into the proposed building of a pressurized water reactor at Sizeweil. This was vital evidence for those opposing the P.W.R. but after the break-in her final dart was strangely found to be missing. Is It your ordinary burglar that steals that sort of thing and yet leaves money and other valuables untouched? She died because she saw through their lies

Yet another victim of Britain's nuclear power program the truth behind nuclear power Is grim and stark so they weave a web of lies to keep us In the Dark British nuclear fuels and the U.K.A.E.A will do anything to silence those who stand in their way

There can be no justification for the use of nuclear power. It leads to widespread contamination of the environment, numerous deaths from cancer and leukemia and unacceptable restrictions on our few remaining civil liberties - while all the lime cheaper and safer alternatives exists.

Because she realized this and decided to make her stand Hilda Murtefi became the target for a particularly foul and vicious attack. A frail old lady, she was repeatedly stabbed then dumped In the woods and left to bleed to death.

Are there no depths to which they will not stoop?
If she was not to die in vain
We must resist this atomic menace

Resist this atomic menace
Resist this atomic menace

No comments, this song speaks about all the problems, social and environmental nuclear energy creates. The song is in an alternating narrative/singing form.

Album Unlimited Genocide (split with AOA) 1986

Go Green

Governments and multinationals
Corrupt and twisted women and men
Are going to bring this planet
To a premature end

With their selfishness and greed
They destroy anything of worth
Are you just going to sit and watch
Their rape of mother earth?

They just could't care less
About the ecological devastation
Inflicted by their insane striving
For profit maximisation

We've got to fight back
We've got to give resistance
Or they'll pollute and exploit
Our world out of existance

Industrial accidents and radiation leaks
So babies are born as freaks
Like the Re-Chen babies with one eye
Or those who Windscale called before their time

And the petrol is full of lead
So kids grow up wrong in the head
And aerosols destroy the ozone layer
No protection - no we're layed bare

And nuclear waste is dumped into the sea
A slow poison for you and me
And what was once fertile land
Has now turned to desert sand

And acid rain pours from the sky
So whole forests wither and die
And dirty cities grey and drab
Cover theyland like concrete scabs

And toxic chemicals are pumped into streams
Death where once life would have been
The whole situation has got out of hand
So go green and make your stand

And it seems you couldn't care less
That our earth is in such a mess
It makes me wonder how long it will take
Before you finally awake

Please, please you got to open your eyes
'Cos you've got to realise
Exactly what those in power got planned
This is the last chance to make your stand

Now that we see what's going on
We've got to stop them and we aint got long
This isn't something just to sing about
'Cos our time is running out...

A call to action, to become “green” activist against the destruction of nature, health and society by those who have the power to use the planet and its sources with devastating ways as disposable items for their own sakes and profits

Nuclear Waste

Nuclear energy is a con
It's just a cover for making their bombs
And it sends people to an early grave
So we want the power of the wind and the waves

Harness the wind
Harness the waves
We don't need this filthy nuclear waste
Solar power - yet another alternative
Think of the boundless energy the sun has to give
Then there's hydro-electricity with turbines and dams
And we can out our consumption with conservation programmes

Harness the wind
The sun the waves
We don't need this filthy nuclear waste
The civil atomic energy programmes
is nothing but an elaborate cover-up for the real use of nuclear power
namely the production of fissile materials for nuclear weapons
We call for an end to the nuclear power programmes and properly
funded research into renewable sources of energy

Harness the wind
The sun the waves
We don't need this filthy nuclear waste

Reject dangerous and dirty nuclear power, the solution is in the clean alternative and sustainable solar, wind or wave power.

You can hear “Nuclear waste” in you tube

We read in wikipedia:

Oi polloi are supporters of Earth First! and uses the motto "No Compromise in Defence of Our Earth," which is an adaptation of Earth First!'s motto. They support direct action in defence of the environment, hunt sabotage, and resistance against racialism, sexism, homophobia, fascism and imperialism. They have recently started singing in Scottish Gaelic and use the language in day to day communications. They see the use of Gaelic and other endangered languages as important to maintaining the biocultural diversity of life.
