Roger Waters Condemns 'Illegal Attacks' on Julian Assange by Western Governments

Waters, 75, has never shied from speaking his mind, and has vocally questioned many Western government policies. Last week, he called US actions in Venezuela a "coup"; earlier he challenged Donald Trump on immigration and called for the boycott of this year's Eurovision in Israel.

Roger Waters, the founding member of Pink Floyd and an avowed social justice activist, has endorsed the upcoming demonstrations in support of Julian Assange and demanded that the whistle-blower be given a safe haven in his native Australia.

In a letter to Australia's Socialist Equality Party, published on the World Socialist Web Site, Waters lauded Assange as a "real hero", whose WikiLeaks project "helped expose to the world the hidden machinations of the real criminals in our society: the oligarchs, who in their insatiable quest for more and more wealth, would destroy the fragile planet we call home".
