Roger Waters denounced the White Helmets, a Syrian volunteer group and a 2017 Nobel Peace Prize nominee, during a concert last Friday in Barcelona, calling them a “fake organization” that prompted propaganda for “jihadists and terrorists.”
The former Pink Floyd frontman claimed that listening to “propaganda of the White Helmets and others we would be encouraged to encourage our governments to go and start dropping bombs on people in Syria,” in a video posted on YouTube by a group called Hands off Syria.
In the video, Waters begins by addressing the audience with a claim that someone wanted to come on stage and make a speech about last week’s chemical gas attack in Douma.
“He is one voice, I personally think he is entirely wrong, I believe the organization that he purports to represent and who he supports, the White Helmets, are a fake organization that is creating propaganda for jihadists and terrorists, that’s what I believe,” Waters said.
