Roger Waters, Robert Del Naja and more declare their support for Jeremy Corbyn

Among the 30 signatories declaring their support for the british Labour leader, ahead of next month’s general election, are also those of musicians Roger Waters, Brian Eno, Thurston Moore, Robert Del Naja and Lowkey.

This has been revealed exclusively by NME magazine.

The support follows the release of a letter from other celebrity names who oppose Corbyn’s position as leader of the party, denouncing what what they feared to be “the prospect of a prime minister steeped in association with antisemitism,” and comes less than a month before the UK general election on December 12.

In the new letter, the signatories – also featuring a range of major authors and academics, notably Naomi Klein and Noam Chomsky – describe Corbyn as a “life-long committed anti-racist” and claim that “no political party or political leader has done more to address [antisemitism] than Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party.”
