The infamous Roger Waters has been prohibited from using his antisemitic inflatable pig, wearing a Nazi uniform and comparing Anne Frank to Shireen Abu Akleh in his Buenos Aires concerts. The Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) Latin America organization stated that this decision was made due to Waters’ history of antisemitism. PAZP, a legal firm in Argentina, along with the anti-discrimination prosecution office, worked together to enforce this ban. SWC Latin America’s Director Dr. Ariel Gelbung told the Jerusalem Post that the region had adopted the IHRA Definition of Antisemitism and apply it alongside anti-discrimination laws, prompting the ban. Waters’ repeated antisemitic comments and actions, dating back many years, have now been featured in two documentaries by Campaign Against Antisemitism.
