Former Pink Floyd frontman, Roger Waters stopped in the middle of a concert in Barcelona to explain his conception that the White Helmets are pure propaganda and that the chemical attack itself was a false flag.
“The White Helmets is a fake organization that exists only to create propaganda for jihadists and terrorists, that’s my belief. We have opposing beliefs. If we were to listen to the propaganda of the White Helmets and others, we would be encouraged to encourage our governments to start dropping bombs on people in Syria. This would be a mistake of monumental proportions for us as human beings.
What we should do is go and persuade our governments not to go and drop bombs on people. And certainly not until we have done all the research that is necessary so that we would have a clear idea of what is really going on. Because we live in the world where propaganda seems to be more important than the reality of what is really going on,” Waters told the concertgoers.
Roger Waters has long been a vocal proponent of the Palestinians and also makes no secret of his support for the Boycott, Divest, Sanctions (BDS) movement to combat Israeli Apartheid.

“The only response to BDS is that it is anti-Semitic, I know this because I have been accused of being a Nazi and an anti-Semite for the past 10 years. My industry has been particularly recalcitrant in even raising a voice [against Israel]. There’s me and Elvis Costello, Brian Eno, Manic Street Preachers, one or two others, but there’s nobody in the United States where I live. I’ve talked to a lot of them, and they are scared s***less….” Waters said.
“If they say something in public they will no longer have a career. They will be destroyed. I’m hoping to encourage some of them to stop being frightened and to stand up and be counted because we need them. We need them desperately in this conversation in the same way we needed musicians to join protesters over Vietnam."
