As a protest of President Donald Trump's controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital and move the U.S. embassy to there from Tel Aviv, Roger Waters has recorded himself reciting part of Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish's 'The Penultimate Speech of the 'Red Indian' to the White Man.'

With musical backing by Le Trio Joubran, a group of oud-playing brothers, he's released it as 'Supremacy,' and you can listen to it below.

"Le Trio Joubran and I have collaborated to perform an excerpt from an epic poem by the great Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish," Waters wrote on Facebook.

"On the surface it narrates the last speech of the Native American to The White Man, but it speaks also to Darwish's beloved Palestine, and its indigenous people, in fact to all victims of settler colonialism everywhere."
