Koutsoubas: Without Mikis, We Would Have Been Different

September 8, 2021

ATHENS — "Without you, we would have been different," General Secretary of the Communist Party of Greece Dimitris Koutsoubas said characteristically during his speech at the farewell ceremony for late composer Mikis Theodorakis, held at Athens Metropolitan Cathedral on Wednesday afternoon.

Theodorakis "made people feel proud of their heritage, and feel admiration for those whose struggles honor the country and try to help it grow," he stressed.

The party leader described Theodorakis as "Impulsive, revolutionary, inflamed with passion, while his music is a resolution that our world needs to change, and can change," he underlined.

The late composer "revealed the power of Greek people and the power of the peoples of the world," said Koutsoubas.
