“Mikis gave light to our souls. He marked with his work the life and course of those who chose the road of democracy and social justice,” stated main opposition SYRIZA-Progressive Alliance leader Alexis Tsipras in a post on Facebook on Mikis Theodorakis’ death.
Tsirpas underlined that “the superb composer, the fighter, the communist, the activist, through his music, life, struggles and his contradictions gave new meaning to freedom, to culture, art and participation. We are saying goodbye with the certainty that what he leaves behind is indelible. In the hearts of our people, the country’s identity, the cultural heritage of the world,” underlined Tsipras.
