We heard with great sorrow of the passing away of a great composer, musician, former KKE MP and a holder of the Lenin Peace Prize, Mikis Theodorakis. Humanity has lost one of its masters.
The great artist of our age Mikis Theodorakis had wished to leave this world “as a communist”. He wanted his comrades to bid him farewell. We convey our condolences to KKE, of which he kept speaking highly even in his last days, to our comrades and to the working people of Greece.
Mikis Theodorakis, who had been a part of the struggle for socialism throughout his life and who always supported the brotherhood of the peoples of Greece and Turkey will continue his struggle by becoming a song in the mouths of communists and revolutionaries all over the world. His works will be alive in our communist struggle in Greece, in Turkey and all over the world!
