Oi! nineteen nineties and the nazis are back family burnt out in an arson attack children lying in hospital dying of their burns it's about time that everyone learns (to) bash - bash the fash! germany in the thirties was the same a life or death struggle - not some kind of game learn at least the basics of some martial art then you'll be ready when the aggro starts b.n.p. scum marching on your street they even get elected when they should get beat beat off the streets that belong to us you won't stop them with chants and placards so just first they came for the jews and i did nothing to help them because i was not a jew then they came for the communists and i did nothing to help them because i was not a communist next they came for the trade unionists and i did nothing to help them because i was not a trade unionist and then they came for me and there was no one left to help me adolf hitler himself said that the only way the rise of the german nazi party could have been prevented was if its enemies had recognised it for what it was right at the start and had smashed it in its infancy with utmost force. for once we would agree with him - waving placards and chanting at fascists through megaphones accomplishes absolutely nothing. the only way to stop nazi scum like the b.n.p. is by physically confronting them and literally kicking them off our streets. nazi falls amidst a hall of fists and feet stomping out the rhythm of the cable street beat with our boots on the scumbag's head the only good nazi is one that's dead a.f.a. girls and boys block the fash escape route now we've got them cornered and they're gonna eat boot trying to escape but they just can't manage our boots rain in wreaking terrible damage
So here we are - a thin green line Into the nineties, runnig out of time Extinction of our planet has already begun but don't let them tell you nothing can be done Some of us are angry & fighting back Non-violent direct action is a means of attack No, we're not giving up without a fight No nuclar plant here - we're going to trash the site
Gotta be honest, gotta be blunt If we really want to stop them we've got sab the hunt Smash that bulldozer, watch the flames go higher Pull the plug & cut the wire We get beaten up & send to jail But I don't care if that's what it takes to save the wales Save our Earth, save the wilderness land Are you for us or againts us? Time to make your stand
See that whaling vessel sinking into brine Taken out by a limpet mine See those trees standing so tall They've been spiked so they won't fall See that excavator going up in smoke Sugar in the petrol tank - that's no joke Ecosabotage in the dead of night Like mushrooms break through concrete in the moonlight
Arrested - beaten black and blue Confession - beaten out of you You didn't do it - but you still get the cell In prison - institiutionalised hell
23 houres - banged up day and night Beatings - given out left and right By the screws who want to put you down Degradation - they rub your face in the ground
How many are imprisoned for a crime they didn't do Don't think for one minute that it couldn't be me or you So if you feel you're tempted to just ignore this song Put yourself in their place and write to right the wrong
How many thousands of people all around the globe are imprisoned for crimes they never commited? How many more for their political beliefs? Or simply because they have fallen foul of vicious, opressive legal systems that serve only to protect the wealthy and powerful elite? What is perhaps the cruellest blow of all to these people is when those of us on the outside simply sit back and allow them to rot in the cells. Organisations like Amnesty International and The Anarchist Black Cross have shown that, by using our collective strength, we can get out many of these people. There is no excuse for inaction. At the time of recording, Martin Foran is on hungerstrike and John Perotti is on fast to death - How many more lives must be screwed up and wasted before we face up to our responsibilities and work to support our sisters and brothers in captivity?
When two men kiss Walk hand in hand The fear of what You don't understand Explodes into violence Screams break the silence “The guy was a poof” “The guy was queer” Dehumanised And living in fear No, you're not thick And you say they're sick But the only sickness I can see Is the cancer of What kind of society do we live in where the simple act of showing love and affection towards another human being results in this kind of sickening murderous violence? Intolerance, bigotry and hate - I say it's time to stop. From nazi boneheads to Bad Brains - Warped attitiudes that we must change and it's not just homofobia - Rampant sexism, macho dancing, beating of woman - All this is rife within the “scene” - often closer to home than we care to acknowledge. It's time to stop sweeping things under the carped - Confront the problems - And act.
Once this magnificent animal swam freely in the seas But now held captive for human greed. A miserable “life” behind bars and concrete walls No companion killer whales to hear its calls. Yes. I'm sickened by what I've seen And the mass Faroe Islands pilot whale slaughter is Obscene. My eyes don't easily fill with the tears But when I watched those whales scream and die The tears ran freely from my eyes To see them murded, hacked apart Was like something tearing indide my heart Yet one day such creatures might all swim free Peaceful coexistence - no fear, no need to hide Ourselves and whales together side by side
I'm lost for words when I think of the depths to which we sink Sometimes there just seem to be no depths to which our species will not sink. Surely, in this day and age, we should be seeking to establish meaningful and constructive relationships with other higher intelligences like dolphins and whales. Instead, however, we seen intent on either exterminating them or roping them in to our sick, perverted power games. How anyone can take friendly, playful wild dolphins and cold-bloodedly turn them into drug addicted killing machines is almost beyond comprehension. Yet people do it. Cold death flies from harpoon gun - The sea turns red - What have we done? A horrific death by harpoon - Scientific research? Blue whales, the largest animals on the Earth, have already been hunted to virtual extinction while sperm whales (who are also highly intelligent creatures with complex social organisation and even their own culture) have found themselves bruttaly slaughtered by rich scum like Aristotle Onassis, the sick evil scumbag who even went so far as to use the penises of sperm whales to make his luxury yacht's bartools. Poison and kill - We are the ones - See what we do - What have we done? Not content with exterminating the most intelligent form of marine life, we are also doing a pretty good job of killing everything else in the sea as well. Radioactive waste, oil slicks, heavy metals, chemical spillages - We're turning the oceans into radioactive cesspit. There are already upwards of fifty nuclear warheads and nine nuclear reactors lost on the seabed. Pollute and kill - Is that all that mankind can do?
Safety rules - corners cut Just to keep the profits up Money saved - profits rise But consequence is someone dies
Victim of a chemical spillage
Safety regulations breached Critical concentrations reached Money is saved but a live is lost Loved ones left to count the cost
Tanker crashin the village Death could from the spillage No escape from the fumes Peoples' homes become their tombs
In the face of corporate greed Ecodefence is what we need Read and act upon this text Or you become the next victim of a chemical spillage
Never forget that one thing that motivates big business is profit. As far as the multinationals are concerned, there is nothing that they will not destroy in their insane drive for increased takings: forests, meadows, rivers, the sea - even their own employees are all seen as expedable. This kind of omnicidal madness is killing our Earth and can only be stopped by mass direct action. Anyone who advocates this of course is branded as an extremist - Yet what could be more extreme than the mass poisoning and polluting of our planet, the destruction of huge areas of rainforest and the wholesale slaughter to extinction of vast numbers of species of animals? It's time to stand up and be counted - If you're not part of the solution. You're part of problem. No compromise on defence of our Earth
Pastry mixed veg Red bean Courgettes Walnuts Cashews Tomatoes Mushrooms!!
Let's make a tasty anarcho-pie - Ace vegan food for you and I (x2)
Take eight ounces of pastry and, leaving a little bit aside, roll out two equal portions each a quarter inch thick. Then use one of these to carefully line the bottom of your chosen pie dish.
Cook the ingredients for the pie filling separately and then place these inside the pie dish on top of the pastry base. Wetting the top of the edge of the pastry base, affix the pastry cover to the anarcho-pie.
Now comes the important bit: Using the spare bits of pastry, decorate the top of the pie with a pastry anarchy sign - symbolising our never-ending resistance to the omnicidal system that perverts our lives.
After baking the pie in the oven for between thirty and thirty five minutes at approximately four hundred degrees farenheit it should be ready fir serving and by this time should have developed a good crust!
Mmm… uurrgh, i don't like mushrooms howay, pass them over - i'll have them aye, this pie, this pie's barry - it's almost as good as - as a singing hiney man! mmm… mmmm… alright john eh aye? aye barry! that's what it is - pure canny! uurgh, i don't like walnuts i'll have them mmmmm… Aye, ye canny baet this vegan food, ken? aye, vegan food oh, it's the best pure dead brilliant man, anarcho-pie rules, ken? aye how long does this go on for? Who's doing the dishes? the wimmin! aaaahhh!! street cred gone! knife hi!! knife the anarcho-pie anyway aye man aye kin raj! aye etc. raj! aye etc.
As a black night fast approaches dawn We gather in mist by the gnomon As the stones are struck by the suns first rays We feel the Earthpower in our veins The awesome power that fills the stone We feel it in our minds and bones And as we dance around the ring Joy fills our souls - We start to sing Old power awakened and growing fast An awesome force from deep in the past But there are those who do not understand And the stones are desecrated By their hands.
One such group of stones facing desecration at the hands of these people is the standing stone complex at Callanish on the Isle Of Lewis in Scotland. Sometimes referred to as the “Stonehenge of the North”, this unique arrangment of stones is facing the same kind of rape that happened at Stonehenge. There are now plans afoot to construct a hideous unsightly visitor centre there this ruining the whole aura of the place - along with the plans to build a bigger road and even to charge an admission fee. Who are these people who in their arrogance that they can deny the people access to our owntemples? Stone circles belong to all of us not simply to the powers that be. Remember: These are same people who seriously considered carpetting Stonehenge with astroturf and even considered constructing a plastic replica “foamhenge” beside real monument! Such people are not fit guardians of these places. Free the stones. Free the stones.
Sticks and standing stones Arrests and broken bones Peoples' homes destroyed Vicious thugs employed By rulers alienated From an earth they've devastated Surround our temple with barbed wire But in our hearts there burns a fire (to) Free the Henge Free the Henge Our culture is attacked Our right are violated I say its time to end The restrictions they've created Free the Henge Free the Henge
For thousands of years Stonehenge has been a sacred meeting place for people - Furthermore in 1918 it was gifted to the nation the then “owner” on the condition that there sholud be free access for all who wished to gather there so what gives you the right, the power to decide that the people's access to the stones will be denied? We won't be stopped by cops, four miles “exclusion zones” 'cos we're coming through to liberate the stones Free the Henge Free the Henge The time will come again When we'll be at Henge To feel the Earthpower At the solstice houre Free the Henge Free the Henge Free the Henge Free the Henge
Winter solstice 1988 - Stonehenge - Bands playing, jugglers juggling, people breathing fire, gathering wood in the trees as the music echoed through the night air, laughing, sitting round the campfire talking and sharing food and drink - An amazingly friendly atmosphere - In the morning, gathering before dawn at the stones, dancing round the stone circle hand in hand - A little magic in the midst of our grey, drab world of concrete and exhaust fumes…
Summer solstice 1989 - Riot police, road-blocks, coming up against the full force of the state, chased through woods by the cops, hiding in the ditches while helicopter searchlights sliced through darkness to find us, fear, anger, determination - That they will not beat us, that they will not destroy our culture… A response: If they think they can stop us gathering together for free festivals they are wrong. Our response to our experiences was just to come and organise a free festival on Cramond Island near Edinburgh. With the help of many others we made our own festival - And you can too!
Standing outsides the primary school gates With their leaflets stirring up race hate Creeping round in the dead of night Setting innocent people's houses alight They stab and kill in radical attacks Just how much more before ypu fight back? Find them - Grind them - Grind them!!
Nazi scum - your time will come
A nazi rally planned for our town But anti-fascists came from all around Cleared the scum completely off the streets Showed the fascists can and will be beat And when they tryied to to gather in Hyde Park Anti-fascists again made their mark On the brainhead boneheads - Who they wasted
We must clear the streets of nazi scum Make them safe again for everyone No longer will we have to walk in fear Of scum who have no place here If we unite the battle can be won Stop the problem before it's really begun Find them - Grind them - Grind them!! Nazi scum - your time will come
I asked them why the wilderness had to die Their replay to me showed the reason was naked greed.
Mass action could stop them - But you've got to start it World Park status for the Antarctica.
They rape and plunder whatever they find - Sea polluted and minerals mined. Poisoned animals slowly die as they suck Antarctica dry.
Cumoan chris - Gie it laldy ya raj!!
And the factory ships set sail - A death sentence for the whale And as the sea turns to red yet more life blood is shed.
Park proposals are greeted with mirth by those who rape our Earth So will you really just stand by and watch the last great wilderness die?
Antarctica - twelve million square kilometers of the last almost untouched wilderness left on Earth. It is thus vital that it is protected from greed of those who would turn it into a vast open-cast mineral mine. Unchallenged, such commercial exploitation will simply kill this continent. Toxic waste will be pumped into the seas (as the Americans are already doing at their base at McMurdo Sound), rubbish will be simply thrown away and the inevitable oil disasters similary to the Exxon Valdez in Alaska will ruin the coastal ecology. Then, goverments and multinationals will move on, leaving it poisoned and scarred - Only one thing stands in their way - You.
Hey there mr. kipling exceedingly good cakes? you're a dealer in death your cost image is a fake mr. kipling - death dealer! mr. kipling - life stealer! we ask you this question how many creatures must die to provide the animal fat for your apple pie? in the slaughterhouse the cattle scream and bleed animals condemneded to death by the corporate greed that fuels war and exploitation and steals the earth from all of us but now your rotting facade is crumbling 'cos now we've got you sussed
You resurrect the corpse of war you take the food from the poor you kill this planet, mine by birth your death machines stalk the earth you create famine for starving millions your air attacks upon civilians your state police to make us bleed you are the leech of corporate greed and you will suck the planet dry as long as those who care stand by not long now till all has died we watch the global omnicide the gulf war we now see portayed on our tv screens like an obscene video game is the inevitable consequence of the greed of big business and a system which sees all life as subordinate to profit, a system which has countless hapless men and women brainwashed, then burned, maimed and blown apart on the battlefield. no war but the class war your system - stench of death omnicide - earth's dying breat fight back - don't stand by dont let your planet die

Are we to go back to the days of victoria? will we so easily surrender the gains we've made so far? back to an age of repression, hypocrisy, and lies forced into the back streets as another freedom dies no! no return to the back streets christian fundamentalist - right wing nutter claim to respect life - soon show their true colors abortion clinic doctor gunned down in the street is this the “sanctity of life” they claim is their belief? thousands more will die - back street abortionist the bloody juman consequence if we do not resist the bombings and the terror - well what do you think? your future as a breeding sow chained to the kitchen sink? fight - or lose the right to choose

Nuclear energy is a con it's just a cover for making their bombs and it sends folk 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 that the sun has to give then there's hydro-electricity with trubines and damns and we can cut out consumption with conservation programmes harness the wind the sun and the waves we don't need this filthy nuclear waste the civil atomic energy programme is nothing but an alaborate cover-up for the real use of nuclear power - namely the production of fissile material for nuclear weapons. we call for an end to the nuclear power programme and properly funded research into renewable sources of energy. harness the wind the sun and the waves we don't need this filthy nuclear waste

Apartheid system fascist state when you buy south african goods this is the system you perpetuate this system based on fear this system based on hate this system which together we can and must annihilate go! yeeeeeeeaaaahhgg!!! a bullet-ridden corpse lies on the dusty track his only crime was that his skin was black we think apartheid stinx those who dare to speak out and question the laws end their lives creaming behind police station doors don't buy apartheid don't buy apartheid the apartheid system cannot be reformed - it must be totally destroyed. for this to happen, however, the south african regime must be isolated and starved of the external financial support that enables it to continue its vile existence. consequently, throughout the whole world, thousands are crying out for sanctions to be imposed against these evil racist slime - but here in britain the government does nothing - and is that really so surprising? for how can we expect thatcher's tories (who are renowned for putting profit before people) to take effective action when, every year, they receive millions of pounds into the party coffers from companies who invest in apartheid - companies like rowntree mackintosh, outspan, shell, b.p., i.c.i., cape, barclays bank, del monte, john west, rio tinto zinc, marconi, tescos - and the list goes on. these are the people whose money keeps botha's government in power, the people who finance a vicious, oppressive regime that humiliates, degrades, tortures, and murders people simply on the basis of skin colour. while those who rule uis refuse to act against this obscenity, we can and will take action against those businesses which, concerning themselves only with profit maximisation and completely regardless of the human suffering involved, continue to finance apartheid - let's hit them where it hurts - boycott the scum!! a brick flies through the window of a branch of barclays bank maybe someone thought their financing of apartheid stank
