This was a benefit-tape for 2 guys (Jaak DC & Patrick H) who were ‘total-refusers’ (objecting to do military service, as well as civil service). People like them were facing jail-sentences and/or had to flee out of the country. Oorlogstuig! is a play on words and means ‘war-mongering scum’, and ‘weapons, ammunition and related equipment intended for war’. “Militarism Murders”… It was compiled by Bart Schoofs (at that time singer of ‘Taartje Aardbei’ and editor of Kwalpol zine). Our Smurfpunx-collective also organised a benefit-concert for the ‘V.I.A. Fonds’, an organisation set up to raise money in support for total-refusers…
