Roger Waters pens article in UK's Daily Mail Print E-mail
Written by Matt   
Tuesday, 23 December 2014

Today's Daily Mail in the UK includes an article written by Roger Waters.

Titled "My Pink Floyd hit and this tragedy", the article shares Roger's views on the treatment of terror suspects, and in particular Shaker Aamer, who has been held for almost 13 years in the detention camp at Guantanamo Bay. (As an aside, this website shows Roger attending the Shaker campaign launch outside London's Houses of Parliament).

It was Aamer's letter to a solicitor, using lyrics from Hey You, which brought his situation to Roger's attention, and the article clearly sets out Roger's view on the situation. You can read it in full here.
