Oxford Ecology Movement

Showing 15 of 18 documents.

Formed in Oxford in 1978 explicitly to put up a general election candidate with a bottom-up distributed approach to organisation in contrast to the more top-down centralised approach of the national Ecology Party. Contested city and general elections in 1979 and then membership dispersed either into more on-the-ground activism or merged into the Ecology Party.
