“God, I can’t stand it anymore”: Eastern Europe held a contest in memory of the “victims of communism”

A song contest dedicated to the victims of the “communist dictatorship” was held in Europe. The purpose of the competition is to encourage young people to reflect on the mistakes and lessons of the recent totalitarian past in the period 1944-1989, as well as to encourage young people to defend democratic gains and values ​​in their countries.

The Bulgarian edition of Mediapool reports on the competition.

I feel trapped in a cage like a monster. God, I can’t stand it anymore, I’ll run away - there is no turning back. It is almost impossible, but worth it.

These are words from a song by the Bulgarian group STAY called “Salvation”, in which the performers talk about the victims of totalitarianism and the desire for freedom of spirit. Thanks to his work, the group took first place in the song contest of the international project Remember, which was attended by musicians from Bulgaria, Romania, Albania, Germany and Croatia. Each country has announced its winners.

STAY will take part in a concert in Sofia along with winners from other countries. But due to the coronavirus pandemic, it is not yet clear when the concert will take place.

The second place in the competition was taken by Saltfield with the song “Pain”. “Bronze” went to the band No More Many More, who sang the song “Forever Free”. Fourth place - the group Monolog with the song "Struggle for freedom."

The fifth in the competition was the band People of Maha with the song “Remember My Name”. The musicians sang about the meeting of a young man of the current generation and a boy who lived during the time of communism. The boy shows the events of his time - when the listener was not yet born or was too young to remember and realize the horror that was happening.

    The most interesting thing is that today no one lives worse than Bulgarians and Romanians in the European Union. And under the Soviet Union, they lived, in principle, not bad. That is, the "freedom" that they supposedly lacked so much, essentially did not bring them anything. Apparently - Bekov - Bekovo.

      Without me, I will not go to war neither for the countries of the former USSR, nor for the countries of the former Warsaw Pact! If I go, then against them, in memory of all the Russians killed by this beast! I have no relatives in Russophobia-sick countries and I don’t need such relatives!

    The choir of mice performed the composition "For Freedom and Democracy" to the conductor's baton of a star-tabby cat, well-fed and contented.

    And they do not want to honor the victims of their SS bandits ?! I'm not talking about the fact that the actions of the Hungarian army did not differ from the SS at all, and the Romanians left not far from them!

      Russia has suffered the most from the communist IGO!

      So, the next competition should light Russia! fellow
      On Red Square, and the mausoleum should be the platform. The head of Russia in a duet with the holy patriarch is simply obliged to open the festival. Relatives of the nobility, heirs of crimson jackets from the 90s and other victims of the "bloody" regime of "patrons" and "respected" businessmen, all in the first rows and give each of them a "musical" sledgehammer, five kilograms. There will be fun. wassat
      After that, the mausoleum will be sold on pebbles for souvenirs, it will fly apart instantly. The obvious benefit for everyone, at the same time and with the Europeans, will be the opportunity after that to kiss passionately, apologize cordially and finally make peace forever. drinks

          You yourself make some ugly provocative statement and blame me for provocation.
          An interesting alignment, are you trying to earn points in the wake of the struggle with the Communists?
          My style is not provocative, but most likely sarcastic. Who can, he will understand, who does not understand - will put a minus.
          For some reason, they connected me with Peshkov. Although I completely agree with his treatise on religion:

          God is invented - and badly invented! - in order to strengthen man’s power over people, he is needed only by the master man, and he is a clear enemy to the working people.
