The image of Hrant Dink, slain journalist and chief editor of Istanbul-based Armenian-Turkish weekly Agos, appeared on the wall during a Pink Floyd concert in London recently.
Also projected on the wall during the group’s performance of the songs in their album “The Wall” were faces of soldiers who died in the Vietnam War and casualties from the Halabja poison gas attack when the Iraqi government used chemical weapons in the Kurdish towns of Halabja and Iraqi Kurdistan.
Projected on the wall was Hrant Dink’s birth and death date and a short biography. “Hrant Dink was assassinated in Istanbul in January 2007.”
Pink Floyd bass guitarist and lead vocalist Roger Waters billed Dink and the deceased soldiers from the Vietnam War as “heros that the world has lost.”
