    Pink Floyd's Roger Waters performs makeshift concert to protest Julian Assange's imprisonment

    Pink Floyd star Roger Waters has called for the release of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange during a performance outside the Home Office.

    The singer and bass guitarist played his former band's hit track 'Wish You Were Here' at a rally in aid of Assange, who was jailed in May.

    Speaking to the crowd from a makeshift stage on Monday, Waters said: "Julian Assange, we are with you. Free Julian Assange."

    Before his performance, Waters claimed the Australian is "locked up" 23 hours a day.

    He said: "How do we put ourselves in the position of a Julian Assange in solitary confinement, or with that kid in Syria or Palestine or Rohingya, being blown to bits by these people in this building here?

    I am a hypocrite.

    I hate it when famous people spew their agenda but don't mind it when it is someone I like promoting someone I like.

    Roger gets pissed at all the right things. I can't go along with his solutions, but I sure do love hearing him spew/sing about the problems.

    His latest album "Is This The Life We Really Want" is awesome.

    I also remember a time when subjects like this would have gotten lots of response and dialogue by this forum.

    Roger Waters isn't on Twitter spewing nonsense and sounding like a raging lunatic. Yeah he is wrong on more Socialism, but he's pretty thoughtful on the subjects. I think that's the difference. Russell Brand is another one. He talks more intelligently and intellectually than most MSM pundits and philosophers. But is completely ignored.
