Another hero gone too soon

We each have our personal list of heroes. For some, it includes trump.

I have my own list which contains persons generally opposite from trump, putin, bibi, etc.

Alexei Navalny is on my list. I am saddened by his death.

Edit to add: BTW, not one of my heroes is perfect.

France is going to celebrate Missak Manouchian and his comrades, immigrants, Jewish for some of them, and communists, who gave their life to fight Nazism.

After their execution, Vichy propaganda created a poster denouncing the resistance as a foreign conspiracy .

The poem of Aragon and the song by Leo Ferré are very beautiful.


You can set subtitles in English even if here, Ferré is not the singer.

He had a very unpleasant history of right-wing, neofascist populism and serious racism.

Thanks, I was not aware of him.

In fact was he a MI6 agent??
