Roger Waters

Roger Waters is an English musician, singer-songwriter and composer. Waters was the main lyricist for the classic British rock band Pink Floyd. Waters became the primary songwriter, and was the driving force behind “Animals”, and “The Wall” as well as the sole songwriter of “The Final Cut”. With anthems of resistance such as Another Brick in the Wall to his credit as a member of Pink Floyd, Waters has always made a lucid stance on the topic of Palestinian freedom. Waters is an active supporter of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement since 2011, and has routinely called for a total cultural boycott in Israel, urging artists to not perform in the region. Waters famously called out Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke for holding concerts in the Israeli capital, Tel Aviv in 2017. The singer has routinely spoken about how the people in the West are indoctrinated to believe that Israel is not an apartheid state, even lending a voice-over to the 2016 documentary film Occupation of the American Mind.
