In January -97 we once again entered Studio Miklaton and recorded the first half of "Frihet?" and the second recording was done in Studio Mixton in March. "Frihet?" ("Freedom?") was released in August -97 in 500 copies by ourselves. Peter left the band in late -97. During the whole time we did gigs in Sweden.
In early 1998 we got in contact with Skuld Releases who wanted to re-press "Frihet?" (the first print was sold out in half a year). The repress was released in June, at the same time we did our first gig abroad (Turku/Finland). In July we did 5 gigs in the U.K. together with Re-Sisters, Oi Polloi a.o.
In Sept/Oct -98 we did a European Tour together with Detestation and Cress. In January 1999 Operation split up due to some personal problems resulting in a cancelled gig at Ungdomshuset/Copenhagen. "Destruktiv Utveckling" ("Destructive development") came out in the summer of 1999. After Operation had split up Eja and Martin played in Protestera and Johan and DM in Svart Aggression. Today Johan, Martin, Peter and D.M.
play in Silent Nation. Compilation CD "Så Länge Du Inte Gör Motstånd, Stöder Du Systemet 1996-1999" ("as long as you don't resist, you're supporting the system", the band's slogan) was released on Halvfabrikat Records in August 2008, including almost all tracks from their three records, excluding only alternate recordings of the same songs.
