Waters gets better and better. Here he is on RT: eloquent, informed, passionate. Not just on the shameful – and in its Orwellian implications terrifying – treatment of a man whose ‘crime’ was to tell us the truth about the very real crimes of the US Empire and its lackey states. Roger goes wider, as we must if we are to grasp the enormity of what is being done.
And let’s not forget how assiduously the Guardian’s coverage – remember Suzannah Moore’s “massive turd” gibe? – eroded support for Julian from a liberal intelligentsia which should have rushed to his defence.
After Roger Waters, stick around for the interview with Priscillia Ludosky, co-founder of the gilets jaunes.
