Roger Waters: It’s time for musicians to boycott Israel or something
Waters also told The Electronic Intifada that he is planning on publishing an open letter addressed to his musician colleagues worldwide, asking them to join the BDS movement and refuse to perform in Israel and at Israeli events worldwide.
“What caused me to write this public letter was an affair where Stevie Wonder was hired to play a gala dinner for the Israeli Defense Forces on 6 December last year. I wrote a letter to him saying that this would be like playing a police ball in Johannesburg the day after the Sharpeville massacre in 1960,” Waters said.
Wonder cancelled his appearance at the Friends of the Israel Defense Forces gala after several organizations asked him not to perform.
