We would like to express our condolences for the passing away of the great composer Mikis Theodorakis. His work has been a symbol for the struggles of the Greek people and working class, of all the exploited and oppressed in the whole world. His work will live forever, his songs will continue to be remembered and sung by peoples all around the world as they express the universal will for liberation from exploitation and oppression.
By expressing his wish to leave this world as a communist, he declared how he would like to be remembered.
