A group of Finnish musicians and activists joined forces to create a song for the memory of Anna Politkovskaya, the murdered Russian journalist. The song "Uuden ajan kynnyksellä" ("In The Beginning Of A New Era") was first aired on Finnish radios on 20. 10. 2006, to coincide with Vladimir Putin's visit in the EU summit held in Finland. A translation is available and the track is downloadable at - go check it out.

The video, directed by Pete Veijalainen, heavily features footage from a spontaneous, silent candle-lit protest held in Helsinki after news of the shooting spread in Finland. Lyrics: Terhi Kokkonen/Music: Kerkko Koskinen.
