Music from the anti-nuclear movement

Laka has a large collection of music (on vinyl, LPs & Singles and on CD or even VHS and Music Cassette) supporting the anti-nuclear struggle. Most of these recordings are documenting a specific struggle in a specific era and location, and are living documents of that decennia long struggle. But at the same time, the music in this collection is part of artistic heritage of this struggle.

Music is an important focus of the special collections of the Laka doumentation centre. If you have anything to add (we know of several vinyl records we were not able to obtain, yet), or want to make an inquiry about a specific record, please contact us at info@laka.org!
