Hosted by the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI), Waters will discuss his support for the cultural boycott of Israel and Palestinians’ rights with Noura Erakat, a Palestinian human rights attorney and activist.
The conversation will stream live on the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) Movement’s Facebook page at 1 p.m. ET.
“All of the people that live in that region should have rights — all our Jewish friends who are in Israel who live there, but also all our Palestinian and Arab friends. They should have equal rights. And that is my only beef. Just as all the people who live in the United States of America should have equal rights. All of them, regardless of their color, creed, race or religion.”
– Roger Waters (on his beef with Israel over its dispute with Palestine)
