Filmmaker RONAN L TYNAN was shocked to hear rock star ROGER WATERS attack the White Helmets whom he met making the film documentary SYRIA – THE IMPOSSIBLE REVOLUTION, which he directed and co-produced with ANNE DALY. Shocked at the former Pink Floyd frontman’s attacks describing them as ‘dangerous’ and ‘bizarre’ because RONAN claims they are based on no evidence only “conspiracy theories of a very perplexing and absurd nature.”
But how do you respond to a multi millionaire rock star seemingly immune to normal engagement with the facts blinded by Russian propaganda? “The only way I felt I could challenge Roger is by writing and recording a song myself! To say having met the White Helmets I was shocked and utterly disillusioned by his totally fact free and completely unfounded attacks would be an under statement,” he said.
RONAN went on: “The White Helmets or The Syrian Civil Defence (SCD) is a search-and-rescue organisation based in opposition-held areas. They have not only saved nearly 120,000 lives but also have recorded some of the worst atrocities carried out in Syria and provided vital evidence of gross human rights abuses by the Syrian government and the Russian military. This explains why they have been targeted in a massive Russian disinformation campaign attempting to smear them as “terrorists,” with some pro-government supporters claiming they are “legitimate targets. Hard to believe Roger Waters swallowed these lies allowing himself as the song’s says to become one of “Putin’s useful fools.”
“I met the White Helmets making our film SYRIA – THE IMPOSSIBLE REVOLUTION, and I believe if Roger had the privilege of meeting them too he could not possibly have allowed himself unwittingly to become a de facto important asset in Putin’s disinformation war. If this song even gets a few people who may have been misled by him to wake up it would have been worth the not inconsiderable effort recording and producing it!” RONAN said.
NEW DOCUMENTARY – “BRINGING ASSAD TO JUSTICE”
RONAN also announced he is working on a new documentary BRINGING ASSAD TO JUSTICE made even more urgent following Roger Waters outrageous attacks on the White Helmets “revealing a level of ignorance about Syria that is chilling,” he said. Describing the film as probably the most important he has ever attempted it will seek not only to show the mounting crimes against humanity committed in Syria but the valiant efforts by Syrians and others to seek to bring those responsible to justice.
“It may take a while before Assad ends up in the International Criminal Court or equivalent body to face trial for his crimes in Syria, but like many brutal tyrants before him he probably thinks he can avoid a reckoning but his day in court will come. Our new documentary casts a light on the many efforts and initiatives to bring that day closer. Roger Waters ignorant and unfounded attacks on the White Helmets makes this film urgent as we will also cast a light on the criminal state run propaganda campaign against them that in itself should also constitute a crime?” RONAN L TYNAN said.
DOWNLOAD SALES OF ‘OH ROGER!’ WILL FUND NEW DOCUMENTARY
Download sales of the song Oh Roger! will also help fund the new film BRINGING ASSAD TO JUSTICE. Tynan described it as “a variant on the theme of singing for one’s supper” and “takes the concept of crowd funding for documentary into a space as yet untravelled!” he said.
