His antisemitism was on full display on his Latin America tour, at a Buenos Aires anti-Israel BDS event before the concert. As he called upon the audience that “we must insist to our local governments to pressure Israel, in favor of the human rights of the Palestinians”.

Not only does Rogers lead the cultural boycott against the Jewish State, but he also spreads hate against Jews wherever he goes. He uses anti-Semitic rhetoric and symbols under the pretext of artistic freedom and is obsessed with bring up the “Jewish lobby.”
Waters advocates human rights and artistic freedom while demonizing, delegitimizing and applying a double standard to advance his antisemitic political agenda.
The Vatican, the Anti-Defamation League, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the mayor of Munich and other notable individuals and organizations have spoken out against his actions.
Latin American Petition Against Waters
We, Latin Americans, say to Roger Waters – we wish you weren’t here!
Waters participated in an event of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israel in Buenos Aires on Friday, a day before performing a concert there. “We must insist to our local governments to pressure Israel, in favor of the human rights of the Palestinians” he said during the program titled “A world Without Walls,” organized by BDS Argentina.
The Argentina Zionist Organization called Waters “one of the great anti-Semites of our time” in an online campaign protesting what it called his hate speech.
Shows in which Waters displays a pig with a star of David also have irritated some Jewish global leaders.
“Waters came to Uruguay and Argentina to promote BDS – Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions – declared illegitimate in a growing number of European jurisdictions as based on the attacks in Nazi Germany on Jewish shops and enterprises to the cries of “Kaufen nicht bei Juden” (No Buying from Jews). The timing of his hatefest tour led up to today’s 80th anniversary of “Kristallnacht” (the Night of Broken Glass),” said Dr. Shimon Samuels, the Simon Wiesenthal Centre’s director for International Relations, in a statement issued on Friday.
Waters performed two shows in Buenos Aires, following concerts in Brazil and Uruguay, and will perform through mid-December in Chile, Colombia and México.
The Argentina Zionist Organization’s on-going online campaign, urges residents throughout the region to reject the Waters’ presence and next concerts. Its Change.org campaign states: “We, Latin Americans, say to Roger Waters – we wish you weren’t here!” – echoing the Pink Floyd song “Wish You Were Here.”
