Greek singer George Dalaras was on the receiving end of verbal abuse as well as bottles of water, coffee cups and yogurts during a concert on Monday night.
Billed as a solidarity concert, the admission-free event took place at Ilion, western Athens.
Dalaras, a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, remained on stage as members of the audience shouted “traitor” and threw various objects in his direction.
“I’m here because I want to and because I believe actions speak louder than words,” said the singer at the end of the concert.
The artist is a veteran performer with an impressive resume in charity work. His wife, Anna Dalara, is a PASOK deputy and former deputy employment minister responsible for immigration issues.Ekathimerini.com
