The Oppressed

The Oppressed

The Oppressed is a Welsh anti-fascist Oi! band that was formed in 1981 in Cardiff. Most of the musicians in the band's various lineups were skinheads. Throughout the band's career, the members (especially vocalist Roddy Moreno) openly expressed opposition to racism and fascism; in their lyrics, interviews, on-stage comments and other actions. In 1989, Moreno visited New York City and met many members of Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice (SHARP) members. On his return to the United Kingdom, he started promoting SHARP ideals to British skinheads.

The band's lead singer, Roddy Moreno, is a Cardiff City F.C. supporter.
