    Pink Floyd have reunited in support of Women of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla. David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Roger Waters made the announcement via the band's Facebook page with a post saying, "Pink Floyd reunites to stand with the Women of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla"

    "David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Roger Waters stand united in support of the Women of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, and deplore their illegal arrest and detention in international waters by the Israeli Defense Force."

    Pitchfork reports, "The Women's Boat to Gaza is a group of women from around the world who boarded a boat in Barcelona last month and headed for Gaza, with the goal of bringing attention to Israel's naval blockade of the Gaza Strip, which has been in place since 2007. It's a campaign sponsored by the Freedom Flotilla Coalition, which describes itself as "a grassroots people-to-people solidarity movement composed of campaigns and initiatives from all over the world working together to end the siege of Gaza." Earlier this week, the Israeli Navy intercepted the Women's Boat. Thirteen activists, including Northern Irish Nobel Peace Prize laureate Mairead Maguire, were aboard the intercepted ship."

    This upcoming weekend and next, Roger Waters will join The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, The Who, and Neil Young at the Desert Trip festival in Indio, California. It will be the first time all of the artists share a bill together.
