Today we spend the hour with the world-famous British musician Roger Waters, founding member of the iconic rock band Pink Floyd.

In recent years, he has become one of the most prominent musicians supporting BDS, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement targeting Israel over its treatment of Palestinians. Waters is scheduled to play Friday and Saturday in Long Island, despite attempts by Nassau County officials to shut down the concerts citing a local anti-BDS bill.

Despite this, Roger Waters has continued to speak out.

Last week, he wrote a piece in The New York Times titled “Congress Shouldn’t Silence Human Rights Advocates.” In the op-ed, he criticized a bill being considered in the Senate to silence supporters of BDS. Roger Waters joined us in the studio on Wednesday.

    Iisrael has been very successful at shutting down other people’s attempts to vocally support BDS and the Palestinian people by engaging in Character assassination, This has resulted in destroying careers and lives so having Roger Waters continue in his vocal support of BDS is very impressive.
    Well done Roger, and thank you for sharing this story.
    Hopefully the law against BDS does not get passed in the US. Wanting peace, their own country and civil rights for the Palestinians does not make you anti Semitic.
