Roger Waters holds concert on Monday: Take forward the fight to free Julian Assange!

At 6:00 p.m. in London today, a critical event has been called by bassist, singer and songwriter Roger Waters and journalist John Pilger to demand freedom for WikiLeaks publisher and journalist Julian Assange. Waters will hold a concert in front of the office of British Home Secretary Priti Patel at 2 Marsham Street, and Pilger will deliver remarks.

Both Waters and Pilger are men of great principle who have fought—Waters as an artist and Pilger as a courageous journalist—to keep alive the struggle to free Assange. This fight, however, must be carried forward through the mobilization of workers and youth internationally to stop the extradition of Assange to the US, ensure his safe return to Australia and secure his freedom.

Roger Waters Slams Interventionist Concert at Venezuela Border

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters slammed an upcoming „Live Aid“-style concert to raise funds for humanitarian aid for Venezuela, calling the event a U.S.-backed effort to tarnish the socialist government in a video circulating Tuesday.

„It has nothing to do with humanitarian aid at all,“ the 75-year old Waters said. „It has to do with Richard Branson … having bought the US saying, ‚We have decided to take over Venezuela, for whatever our reasons may be.'“

Roger Waters steht auf der richtigen Seite

Die CIA war für die große Unterdrückungsoperation und den Kulturkrieg verantwortlich, womit die Yippie-Bewegung und die Gegenkultur zerstört wurden. Bei Bill Grahan steht zu lesen: „Die kulturelle Projektion von Rock wurde zu einem schönen utopischen Traum reduziert. Die angebliche Gegenkultur wurde aufgesammelt und in die Freizeitbranche integriert“

Roger Waters weiß, auf welcher Seite er sich befindet. Seine Stimme trägt Licht. Die Mächtigen dieser Welt haben ihm den Krieg erklärt. Wir sind mit dir, Roger.

Roger Waters Antikriegs-Statement auf Konzert in Barcelona über die White Helmets

Rogers sagte, dass er nicht mit der Meinung dieser Person übereinstimmt und nach seiner persönlichen Ansicht die White Helmets als Sprachrohr derjenigen ansieht, die weiterhin in Syrien den Krieg eskalieren lassen und Regierungen den Grund liefern, Bomben auf Menschen zu werfen. Der Musiker nutzte seine Ansprache zu einem Appell, diese Welt zu einem besseren Ort werden zu lassen und nicht auf die Propaganda zu hören, die keine Beweise sondern gefälschte Behauptungen vorlegt.
