Roger Waters Represents Global Civil Society at The United Nations

Roger Waters, speaking on behalf of the Russell Tribunal and Global Civil Society at the UN General Assembly, making a plea for the recognition of Palestine as a non-member observer state, hesaid:
"I am a musician, not a diplomat, so I shall not waste this precious opportunity on the niceties of protocol.  I'm looking at shedding some light on the predicament of a beleaguered people."
"The Russian Tribunal on Palestine was created to shed such light, to seek accountability for the violations of international law, and the lack of United Nations resolve that prevent the Palestinian people from achievement of their inalienable rights, especially the right of self-determination."
