March for Assange with Roger Waters, 22 February 2020Announced today is a march for Julian Assange, which is taking place tomorrow (22nd February, 2020) in London, and as part of the announcement, Roger Waters has noted that he will be performing during the event.

The march for Assange goes from Australia House, Aldwych, to Parliament Square. They note that "Assange's full extradition trial begins the following Monday (24th February) and that the Trump administration is seeking to put Assange in jail for 175 years for publishing the Afghan and Iraq War Logs".

They will assemble from 11:30am GMT, to leave Australia House at 12:30pm. Others participating will include Chrissie Hynde, Brian Eno, Vivienne Westwood and MIA.

Obviously we don't know the nature of Roger's performance, but many of you will recall that he played Wish You Were Here in a similar, yet smaller, protest back in September 2019, again in London.

UPDATE: Roger didn't perform any music during the event, but read from a prepared speech to the assembled crowd. Chrissie Hynde was (we understand) the only musician to perform any music.

With thanks to Jon, we have a couple of pictures of Roger during the event:
