Roger Waters United Nations

Roger Waters appeared at the United Nations yesterday, where he delivered a 25-minute speech accusing the State of Israel of international crimes against the people of Palestine.

The former Pink Floyd singer is a Representative of the Russell Tribunal on Palestine. “In that capacity, I am representing global civil society… I’m looking only to shed some light on the predicament of beleaguered people,” he explained. “The Russian Tribunal on Palestine was created to shed such light, to seek accountability for the violations of international law, and the lack of United Nations resolve that prevent the Palestinian people from achievement their inalienable rights, especially the right of self-determination.”

Waters said that the tribunal found the State of Israel “guilty of a number of international crimes,” including apartheid, ethnic cleansing, and collective punishment of the Palestinian population. You can watch footage of his entire speech below.

Is it Russell or Russian? Sounds like he said “Russell”.
