Watch: Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters Recites Aamir Aziz’s ‘Sab Yaad Rakha Jayega’

The musician was at a protest in London demanding the release of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, where he made a striking reference to the anti-CAA protests in India, as well as protests occurring in other countries like Argentina and France.

Roger Waters addressed the audience, saying, “Julian is why we are here today, but this is no parochial protest. We are part of a global movement that might be the beginning of the global enlightenment, which this fragile planet so desperately needs.”

He proceeded to then recite an English translation of Aamir Aaziz’s ‘Sab Yaad Rakha Jayega’, and remarked that Aziz was a young poet and activist in Delhi involved in the fight against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his “fascist and racist Citizenship law.”

Here is the poem that the legendary musician  recited:

“Kill us, we will become ghosts

And write of your killings, with all the evidence

You write jokes in court,

We will write ‘justice’ on the walls

We will speak so loudly that even the deaf will hear

We will write so clearly that even the blind will read

You write injustice on earth

We will write revolution in the sky

Everything will be remembered,

Everything recorded.”
