Pink Floyd guitarist and co-founder Roger Waters was recently captured on camera as he read out activist and poet Aamir Aziz’s poem ‘Sab Yaad Rakha Jayega.’ The musician was speaking at a London event, demanding the release of jailed Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Waters read the English version of the poem and said Aziz is fighting against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘fascist and racist Citizenship law.’

Here is what Rogers read:

Everything will be remembered.
Killers, we will become ghosts
and write of your killings,
with all the evidence.

You write jokes in courts,
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 the earth,
We will write revolution in the sky.

Roger Waters completed the recital with the words, “This kid has got a future.” Both the statement and Aamir Aziz’s poem was met with a round of applause from the audience.

The original composition by Aamir Aziz was released online almost two months ago when protests against the Citizenship Amendment Act first started erupting in New Delhi.
