Pink Floyd founder Roger Waters spoke out this Friday (26) about the German police investigation. The singer is investigated for inciting hatred after wearing an alleged Nazi uniform during the performance of the “This is Not a Drill” tour in Berlin:

My recent performance in Berlin attracted attacks in bad faith from those who want to slander and silence me because they disagree with my political views and moral principles.

The elements of my performance that have been called into question are clearly a statement in opposition to fascism, injustice and fanaticism in all their forms. Attempts to portray these elements as something different are underhanded and politically motivated. The depiction of an unhinged fascist demagogue has been a feature of my shows since Pink Floyd’s “The Wall” in 1980.

I have spent my entire life speaking out against authoritarianism and oppression wherever I see it. When I was a child after the war, Anne Frank’s name was often spoken in our household, she became a permanent reminder of what happens when fascism goes unchecked. My parents fought the Nazis in World War II, with my father paying the ultimate price.

Regardless of the consequences of attacks against me, I will continue to condemn injustice and all those who commit it.
