Street in Keratsini to be renamed Pavlos Fyssas in memory of murdered musician
The official renaming of Panagis Tsaldaris street in Keratsini to Pavlos Fyssas street will be held on Monday, November 16, at 12:30, at a special event, at the municipality of Keratsini – Drapetsona, in collaboration with the family and the friends of Fyssas.
“A young fellow citizen, Pavlos Fyssas, was murdered in cold blood by a member of the fascist gang of Golden Dawn. It was a cowardly murder of a man who through his songs and his general attitude fought against fascism,” the Mayor of Keratsini Christos Vrettakos said in a statement and added that “the murder of Pavlos has marked the memory of all.”
“The renaming of the street to Pavlos Fyssas shows in practice our determination to honour not only Pavlos himself but also the history of our city,” he underlined.
The official renaming of the street will be accompanied with a three-day celebration in honour of the anti-fascist fighter, who was murdered on September 18, 2013.
