During the regime of the colonels in Greece (1967-1974), the leftist opposition operated from exile abroad. The Panhellenic Liberation Movement was established in Stockholm in 1967 by the social democrat Andres Papandreou. The composer Mikis Theodorakis was exiled in 1970 and became the figurehead of the Greek liberation movement.
The international solidarity movement followed Theodorakis' path and especially attracted many artists and intellectuals such as Jean Paul Sartre.
