Behind the name…

The reasoning behind the name is not that we are youths, but the fact that even in 2014 we are still living under the same oppressive establishment that has downtrodden our people since it’s incarnation and the youth need a real education outside of this system.

The innocence and honesty of a child is taken away as soon as they enter school, you are taught to be a good worker to help maintain capitalism and trade and add a further cog to this endless machine. Taught by the system, for the system.

We want to work together in communities based on trust, love and mutual aid, not institutionalised work ethic purely to fund the state when at the same time you can barely afford to put a roof over your head. We should be taught real life needs like growing our own food, learning to talk to people, listen and understand others problems, learn how do deal with anxiety and learn how to work in communities.

The youth need a real education and every child has the entitlement to an education based on their needs, not the systems needs.


    uniE603 No Borders
    Today we have released a new song called 'No Borders'. Yet again in the UK we see white male authoritarian figures clamping down on migration and the right to remain. These are people that have no real life experience of hardship, brought up in a privileged house hold in elitist families who rule by association. It's time for change. We believe that we have the right to step foot on any piece of grass the earth can offer, and so does everyone else. We are against all borders, freedom of movement for all. No one is illegal and too many people have died striving for nothing more than a safe space to live with their families. Support your local No Borders organisation. #audio #dub #steppas #no #borders #conscious #youth #soundsystem #PoliticsWW
