“We made this video to tell you we are with us. We had nothing more in mind.”

A moving video with testimonials of anti-fascist solidarity from Turkish activists in the memory of Greek rapper Pavlos Fyssas, slain by neonazis in Athens last month [1], was uploaded on YouTube, subtitled in Greek. The video was set to a dirge [2] written by Turkish composer Zülfü Livaneli [3] and Greek lyricist Lefteris Papadopoulos [4], and performed by famous Greek singer and political Maria Farandouri [5], an icon of the struggle against the Greek military junta in the late 60's.
