A statement from Roger Waters on the controversy over his Berlin Concert
Frankfurt. “My recent performance in Berlin has attracted bad faith attacks from those who want to smear and silence me because they disagree with my political views and moral principles.
The elements of my performance that have been questioned are quite clearly a statement in opposition to fascism, injustice, and bigotry in all its forms. Attempts to portray those elements as something else are disingenuous 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, the name of Anne Frank was often spoken in our house, she became a permanent reminder of what happens when fascism is left unchecked. My parents fought the Nazis in World War II, with my father paying the ultimate price.
Regardless of the consequences of the attacks against me, I will continue to condemn injustice and all those who perpetrate it.”
on behalf of Mr George Roger Waters

New edition of the academic work “Convincing Political Stakeholders”: a unique insight into the specific practices of interest representation15.9.2023 08:00:00 CEST | Press release
A revised and extended edition of the standard work on interest representation in the European Union by Prof. Klemens Joos, entitled "Convincing Political Stakeholders", was published on 06.09.2023 (WILEY-VCH Verlag, 1st edition: 2015).
