Roger Waters Represents Global Civil Society at UNGA

Roger Waters Represents Global Civil Society at UNGA


Roger Waters, speaking on behalf of The Russell Tribunal and Global Civil Society at the UN General Assembly, making a plea for the recognition of Palestine as a non-member observer state, he said:

"I am a musician, not a diplomat, so I shall not waste this precious opportunity on the niceties of protocol.  I'm looking at shedding some light on the predicament of a beleaguered people."

"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 of their inalienable rights, especially the right of self-determination."

A compelling video by Anthony Lawson which indicts Israel for its daily abuses against Palestinians and  the horrors it has inflicted on Gaza and which it continues to inflict through its illegal and genocidal siege against the devastated and overpopulated strip of land, with the support of the US and European Governments and the complicity of the Zionist owned Media :

  1. I sometimes wonder if I am braindamaged or suffers from blunt trauma. Everytime I see pictures from Gaza/Westbank, I dont see the destructions, I see only beauty full people.


    Life is more important than material, that can be dealt with later, as long there is life, beauty prevails, despite the darkness that surounds it. Butterfles everywhere that in the night truns into myriads of litle candles.


    I believe the darkness is exposed, for what it is, evil, plain and simple, where arguments are twisted to surealistic realism, a Dalian landscape where everything is in chaos.


    A heresay is it named, just to point out the truth, threatened to be burnt on a stick, as a heretic and spreader of blasphemy, they scream at you.


    And their mantra is to conquer and greed is their God, and their God have given Them the right to slaughter and steal.


    You may be offended by my statements, I can't help it, that perception and knowledge is scarce, thats your problem.


    The result is what we all see today, the ethnic clensing of a people, and the final batle for land. And it been an ongoing afere, for 70 years.  


    Why, When it's so obvious?


    Never forgett, war benefts only few, peace benefits all, what's the problem. with peace?

  2. Roger Water's excellent and emotional speech at the General Assembly is a telling story that every non zionist american should hear, preferably the longer version.
    Thank you Debbi for posting it. 

  3. There is no doubt that Roger's effort would have had some inpact on the votes at the UNGA.
