Greek Elections: “I Sing with You, Freedom” to the Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves from Verdi’s Nabucco ~ Nana Mouskouri

Solidarity with the Greek people and Syriza! Good luck, Alexis Tsipiras - may the (debt) jubilee dawn in the cradle of democracy!

Quand tu chantes je chante avec toi liberté

Quand tu pleures je pleure aussi ta peine

Quand tu trembles je prie pour toi liberté

Dans la joie ou les larmes je t’aime

Souviens-toi de jours de ta misère

Mon pays tes bateaux étaient tes galères

Quand tu chantes je chante avec toi liberté

Et quand tu es absente j’espère

Qui-es-tu? Religion ou bien réalité

Une idée de révolutionnaire

Moi je crois que tu es la seule vérité

La noblesse de notre humanité

Je comprends qu’on meure pour te défendre

Que l’on passe sa vie à t’attendre

Quand tu chantes je chante avec toi liberté

Dans la joie ou les larmes je t’aime

Les chansons de l’espoir ont ton nom et ta voix

La chemin de l’histoire nous conduira vers toi

liberté, liberté

When you sing I’m singing with you liberty

When you cry I cry as your pain

When you shake I pray for you freedom

In joy or tears I love you

Remember the days of your misery

My country your ships were your galleys

When you sing I’m singing with you liberty

And when you are absent I hope

Who are you? Religion or reality

A revolutionary idea

I think you’re the only truth

The nobility of our humanity

I understand that people die to defend yourself

That we spend our lives waiting for you

When you sing I’m singing with you liberty

In joy or tears I love you

The songs of hope have your name and your voice

The path of history will lead us to you

freedom, freedom

    Inspiring just like the Peaceful Stand of the Greek People against the Destructive
    Policies of the Capitalist Regime

    The Present and the Future Deserve to be For Freedom Not the Arrogant Destructive
    Misery Inflicted by Stupid Politicians

    Both People in the UK and Greece Need to Step Up the Number of Demonstrations
    and Demand the Instant Repeal of Tyrannical Diktats that Infringe upon the
    Human Right to Political Protest

    May Both Greeks Be Free and Britons Never Shall be Slaves to the Tyranny of Austerity

    Every success to those who wish to free their country from the immoral shackles of Bankers and Eurocrats and the faceless ones who wish to destroy every economy for their own selfish gain. Freedom to Greece , and to every country who turns their back on the corruption that has made Europe what it is today.
