Zegota is an anarchist hardcore punk band originally from Greensboro, North Carolina, formed around 1996-1997. The name alludes to Żegota (the polish word for ‘unity’), or The Council to Aid the Jews, a Catholic group from Poland, which saved the lives of many European Jews during the Holocaust. Their albums have been released on a diverse list of labels, such as CrimethInc, Stonehenge and Amor y Lucha. They have released 4 (5, including the demo) records this far, they are:- A demo tape (199?)- Movement in the Music LP/CD (1999) - Namaste CD (2001) - Reclaim! LP/CD (2004) - Self-Titled 7” (2005)The members are currently engaged in lots of things which have nothing to do with playing music, but they are planning on beginning work on another album in 2007. The band is currently based in Stockholm, Sweden, and Greensboro, North Carolina, and Durham.
