In light of the Greek fascist group Golden Dawn being recognized in court as the criminal organization it is I would like to remember and honor one of their prominent victims, antifascist rapper Pavlos Fyssas who was murdered in 2013 by a Golden Dawn fascist. Rest in power, Killah P.

bereavement and injustice 

Magda Fyssas screaming her son's name after the verdict... my heart goes out to her, and to the many other mothers who did not even get this cold comfort, and instead were told it is perfectly legal to kill their children in cold blood. A court ruling cannot bring these lost lives back; these families will never be made whole. But a court ruling can affirm the value of a life and the wrongness of taking it. The family of Pavlos Fyssas, a native Greek man, got that assurance. The families of Breonna Taylor, Michael Brown, Philando Castile and too many others did not.
