• Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters: Why moral perversity of U.S. position in Gaza is stunning

    August 27, 2014

    Dear Friends I have two pieces to share today, one I wrote for Salon.com and the other is a piece by a writer and actor I have long admired and respected, Wallace Shawn. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/wallace-shawn-gaza-anger-palestinians-727193 Both pieces express our joint support for peace, love, understanding and goodwill to all our brothers and sisters whatever their race, color, nationality or religion. So please, no ranting, it's become really boring. Love R.I think it's safe to say that if U.S. neighborhoods were living under siege, folks like Rand Paul wouldn't take it

    A message from Roger: Friends, In the aftermath of the catastrophic devastation wrought in Gaza by "Operation Protective Edge," there is a crisis of care for the victims, particularly the injured children. There exists in Jerusalem a charitable hospital, "Makassed" devoted to care. I have donated already, but it struck me that if the friends of ROGERWATERS.COM donated $3.50 each, the immediate costs ($5,000,000) would be covered. Check out these posts and if you can, send these kids a few bucks. If you do you will live in my heart forever. Love Roger http://helpupa.org/istandwithrogerforpalestine

  • Shaker Aamer

    July 18, 2014

    A note from Roger: Recently I received a copy of a letter sent from Guantanamo by Shaker Aamer, a UK resident, who has been detained in Gitmo without trial for 12 years. Shaker's letter was forwarded by Clive Stafford Smith, a man I have met, who tirelessly advocates the rule of law, and every human being's right to a fair trial. In his letter Shaker quotes some lyrics of mine and it was on those grounds that Clive forwarded the letter to me. I felt it important that Shaker's story is heard, and that Clive Stafford Smith’s and Reprieve's attachment to the law is Is recognized as being fundamentally important to us all. Love Roger Please visit: http://www.reprieve.org.uk/about/ Reprieve delivers justice and saves lives, from death row to Guantánamo Bay. We investigate, we litigate and we educate, working on the frontline, providing legal support to prisoners unable to pay for it themselves. We promote the rule of law around the world, and secure each person’s right to a fair trial. And in doing so, we save lives. Reprieve prioritises the cases of prisoners accused of the most extreme crimes, such as acts of murder or terrorism, as it is in such cases that human rights are most likely to be jettisoned or eroded. Reprieve focuses on cases involving the world’s most powerful governments, especially those that should be upholding the highest standards when it comes to fair trials.
