Pink Floyd’s Waters narrates anti-fence film


JERUSALEM (JTA) — Former Pink Floyd lead singer Roger Waters narrated a United Nations film about Palestinian difficulties caused by the security fence.

The 15-minute film opened Wednesday to mark the fifth anniversary of the International Court of Justice’s opinion that the fence’s route is illegal, the French news agency AFP reported.

Waters wrote the lyrics to the Pink Floyd album "The Wall."

Israel says the wall almost completely stopped Palestinian suicide attacks during the second intifada. The Palestinians charge that the fence cuts off Palestinian farmers  from their land and will prohibit them from forming a state in the West Bank.

During the film, Waters spray-paints "We don’t need no thought control" on the wall.
