THE BALLAD OF HO CHI MINH
HASTA SIEMPRE (English Subtitles)
THEY SHALL NOT PASS!
Written By: Umit Ilter
Recited By: Tuncel Kurtiz
This is part of a three hour long concert given by Grup Yorum on June 12, 2010 in Istanbul where Tuncel Kurtiz recites a brilliantly expressive poem by Umit Ilter in protest to the US imperialist attack and later occupation of Iraq and its devastating impacts on the lives of the Iraqi people. The original language in which the poem was written and recited is Turkish. The English subtitles are written by The Iranian People’s Fadaee Guerrillas based on a Farsi translation with some corrections added (in reference to the original Turkish text) and then put on Youtube. In solidarity with the people of the world against their common enemy (the imperialists) and in order to act upon our internationalist tasks, it is hoped that this video clip will reach many activist organizations from various countries.
