Αἰωνία ἡ μνήμη.Given the large number of left leaning members of Bluemoon, I am surprised that nobody mentioned the death of Mikis Theodorakis last week. As well as being famous for his film music, (Zorba the Greek, Serpico, Z) he was a hero to the left in Greece for his political activism. From joining the resistance to the Nazis as a teenager to his campaigning against the generals who mounted a coup, for which he was imprisoned and exiled, he was relentless in his championing of socialism. The one time MP made a massive contribution to Greek culture through writing, composing, founding an orchestra, and many other activities. Google him.
RIP Mikis Theodorakis.
