RAMALLAH – The Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI) reports that Roger Waters, leader of the famous English band Pink Floyd, has refused to be "another brick" in Israel’s Wall.
Waters had planned to perform in Tel Aviv but said he will move the concert to Neve Shalom/Wahat al Salam because Israel "is escalating its repression and apartheid designs to further dispossess, ghettoize and ultimately ethnically cleanse Palestinians from their homeland," said PACBI.
Many Palestinian artists and cultural organizations and their supporters around the world had called upon Waters not to perform in Israel.
Waters said: “The suffering endured by the Palestinian people
during the Israeli occupation of the last 40 years is unimaginable to us living in the west and I support them in their struggle to be free."
