    Default Roger Waters UN Address-Israeli war crimes

    Great speech by the Pink Floyd legend in support of the Palestinians ( see vid below).


    Legendary UK musician, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters, has reiterated his strong support for the Palestinian campaign for self-determination in a statement announcing a forthcoming conference in Brazil to support and expand the global movement for Palestinian rights.

    Waters’ is a long-standing supporter of the Palestinian campaign to boycott, divest from and sanction Israel.

    The World Social Forum Free Palestine will take place in November 2012 in Porto Alegre.

    “The object will be to create an international gathering there,” said Waters, “that will encourage the basic human instinct in all men and women of good faith to unite in support of the Palestinian people in their struggle for self determination.”

    Waters visited Palestine in 2006 and painted graffiti on Israel’s apartheid wall in the occupied West Bank.

    The visit, and Waters’ support for BDS, came after Palestinians appealed to Waters to cancel a concert in Tel Aviv, an appeal the artist heeded.

    Since that time, Waters observed in his statement, “All over the world, our movement is growing.”

    I met him in a bar outside London. He was acquainted with someone that I knew. I had two or three pints with him and I didn't recognise him, I thought that he looked like somebody that I knew or had met before , . I know we didn't talk about music, why would we, I didn't know who he was, but I do remember that he had a very firm handshake, and was a nice bloke

    Hmmmmmmm.

    He wrote a few neat songs. Not sure this makes his opinions any more relevant than, say, a punter on a barstool. I guess, like Bono, maybe he feels adding his weight will increase the profile of the issue...

    Absolutely, the international communities patience is wearing thin with Israels ongoing war crimes. A legend like Waters can only be good for developing awareness and publicity of this.

    Waters played in China.

    He has zero credability spoofing about human rights.
