Happy new year. This will give you a little hope or happiness. Roger Waters (who is possessed by the insane belief that Palestinian freedom is more important than his own music career) has put up a video of the Pink Floyd song “Hey You” as a soundtrack to a video of two Palestinian children who dream of actually seeing the sea, and then take measure to do so. The lovely video was apparently made by the people of Bil’in. The video documents the village’s demonstrations against the separation wall that steals much of their land.
The first image is of the children unwrapping a birthday present of a photograph of the Mediterranean, which is about twenty miles from their village. Notice too that the video valorizes the stone throwers’ resistance to an oppressive occupation.
Hey you! don’t help them to bury the light
Don’t give in without a fight.
Waters’s New Year’s Day message. “Together we stand. Peace and Love in 2016”
