The recent political struggles between the Yellow & Red Shirt
movements in Thailand reminds me of an earlier era.
During the 1930s we had the Communist Reds, Nazi Brown
shirts, and Fascist Black shirts.
In 1931 Paul Poirt came up with the idea of a Green Shirt to
sybloblise peace. The use of this colour was based upon the
fact that olive branches are green.
This idea was backed by the New York based New History
Society which sold these shirts, as did the War Resisters
In 1934 the music hall Lupino Lane recorded a satitical song entitled Shirts. This was a very partriotic song which stated that Britains would never wear shirts.
During the 1970s the Green Movement came in to being.
It was during this era that I used to be in correspondence with
Petra was a founder of the Green Party in Germany.
We both had a concern about the various dangers posed by the
Nukiller Power Industry
Since that time anything which is ecologically sound has
become known as green.
With growing concerns upon the use of fossil fuels as a
major cause of global warming ,
we are now starting to get many politicians,
and the Nukiller Power industry,
referring to Nukes as being:
‘A Green alternative to fossil fuels’.
Well the major objections to the use of nukiller power have
not changed that much since the 1970s.
Just stating that one has changed ones colour does not
change the facts.
Nukiller power is major environmental polluter,
and nothing is ever going to change that fact.
There is an old expression about being broke, or loosing the
shirt off ones back.
Any development of Nukiller power will really be going for
and we will all then be without a shirt to put on.
