5:34 am
reparations what is owed to the ancestors of enslaved africans. from former colonizers, the stream brought together activists from the caribbean, the u. s. and the u. k. who campaigning for reparations. when we got to our post show discussion, they wanted to make it very clear that the legacy of chapel slavery is a contemporary issue that has to be addressed. i think i do cation has a lot to do with it, but also the pressure, the no pressure has a lot to do with it all. well, just since the murders of george floyd and be out of challenge robbery and all of the other incidences of police killings in this country, it is really our mobilized people to see buffer ration. there's really a legitimate remedy for some of these things. century care, which again did not just begin today. there's a direct connection to the enslavement error with respect to the police abuse that we see today. that's a direct connection with the educational system that is going on today and the lack
5:35 am
of education during the slavery era. the health deficits the black. why? well yeah, in the issue in the, it's just just go on and are the areas a base that they in live with respect to connecting the dots between what happened yesterday and what is going on is still happening today. slavery far from being in an artifact path, tissues library and this remnant have a very, very tangible place right here. now, in the american economy, we have in slave labor, the bill ports and they are lines. and all of these institutions that are still remaining proper generating, but there has been no, no compensation for those who built all of those with unpaid labor. and again, the connections are in this hurry, can you give us some insight into behind the scenes that behind the scenes negotiations with former colonizers who to me seem like they have all the cards,
5:36 am
they have the power, they have the money, they want to move on they don't want to look back. how do you negotiate? well, well 1st of all they can come. abrasion commission has written just 60. can country spain, britain, nevertheless, then mark or to go front? no, none of them wrote back with a positive respond. we also bring up the issue, the united nation states, i reminded each time they come before the 3rd of their responsibilities. so we are working on all fronts to try to get steeds to on up to and up. and i think we're seeing a little bit of movement in, in some of them. and i believe that is not hopeless,
5:37 am
but we must not this, this on those warm making amends. for example, the institutions, universities, an individual. there are several individuals in the united kingdom who have decided that i am looking for my path. it's not a great one. it is mixed up in slavery. they are right now engage in community reparation in jamaica. so when people say it was never happened, we have to look at the different forms of reformation and look at what is going on at the grassroots level, individual families in the u. k. banks and institution. but i agree, this tastes must or no, please wrong. and p reparation. we have a strategy in the kind of been you heard about it already. apology repass ration, not just of people or stolen from the homeland what we want back or documents we want to call and treasure. remember,
5:38 am
this is personal to me. i have traced my answer says that if he can't people in, cameroon, how did they get over to jamaica? there was no clue. no to is in no way. yeah. it was bull and william a voluntarily knew that talking to mom policy, well enough stuff. let me just bring it, bringing the he just, just for a final. so here what i'm hearing is a reparations movement. one in the u. s. one in the caribbean. you in the u. k. do we have a global reparations movement? yeah, in my view, no, i would say we have an international nice man. why i'm saying we don't have a global movement as yet is because we don't have that global coordination. so even though i'm based in the u. k, one thing i should tell you about the movement in the u. k. it's not a black british movement. the reparations movement in the u. k. has always been
5:39 am
upon african lisman because we have to slow numerically to just say reparation just about us. because it's upon african movement, it has the most potentially my view to actually inspire that global movement because we are not bounded by the shows of the british isles. the british empire was global. and we are connected with people who are colonized, who are not african people colonized from asia, people call it died from the yellow in the americas all over the world when we find the common cause. and that is, i think, the beauty of the movement in britain and we are working with why allies, who are giving the british government hell and your opinion, governments and governments around the world such as extinction, rebellion, who engage in forms of non violent direct action. many of us have been in re inspired because this has been part of our story, a civil disobedience and we know that unless we engage in civil disobedience,
5:40 am
we are not going to get movement. so we are also calling for the all policy parliamentary commission of inquiry for truth and report to justice, which also looks to homes, not just been done to us as people, but the homes. but i've been down to our environment of very much that is actually, you know, imperative life, but all of us on the planet because of this repair service, racial capitalism. because of the extract of ism that calls now many of those nations, but experience displacement and colonization are the ones that are feeling the climate and the ecological i smith most at risk. the hurricanes with seeing in the caribbean and other parts of the globe, but can literally temperatures rise. we know some of those islands will disappear. so this is what we're talking about. that's so me what will make this movement global when we're able to be can away, but we can bring the majority of humanity with us. and in the u. k,
5:41 am
we are doing that. the powerful voices of f, the stanford, kasai, nikita tiny for ivory shepherd. now i know that you love news because you're watching right here on out 0. well, some of the best correspondence come to work. one of our favorite type of shows on the stream is when we ask journalists to take us behind the scenes of that reporting out there, correspondent john home and spent a month traveling some of the most dangerous parts of mexico, where a drug cartel war is taking place between criminal groups, which land piece and government forces, and this is all going on. while a terrified civilian population is caught in the middle. don't film living in mexico's kill zone. can be seen on youtube, where there's a comment from the shell rodriguez that jumped out of me. these reporters are brave, and to top it off the questions while dude had a big gun. michelle, i'm so with you. i was also struck by how john was asking,
5:42 am
probing questions and scary situations and not getting in trouble. he is what he told me about his interviewing style. it's something that i've tried to learn over time is that you can ask the hardest question, but if your voice is sole and your body language isn't aggressive, then magically the words in some ways is not the least simple thing. but if you get away with a lot with a soft voice, and especially when there's a lot of men with big guns around doing that, you speak pretty softness. and that comes across in the film that we try and off the hall. and we don't show, i want to bring in the voice of katherine whitaker who's working with populations in metro acad and trying to work out how people are looking off themselves, taking care of himself. he, she is. i'm really interested in your brief response of the back of it, john, i'm civilian groups have attract a lot of international attention,
5:43 am
but they are more sustainable ways in which said civil society amy dragon has responded to violence in the state. for example, local citizen security council provides a way of rebuilding trust in the police. in each i can over 90 percent of the population. don't trust the police and institutions. so local the citizens, security cancels provide away for. busy citizens to regularly meet and monitor the police in a formalized setting. and in this way, security is being enhanced by rebuilding trust in the police. i think that one's a yes and no, no, because we actually went out with the self defense group. nothing is what countries talking about towns that got given to the counsel and set out their own self
5:44 am
defense groups. now a lot of those have become compromises. what experts tell us, and we were the biggest one tonight at the austin, you him the trucks. and he was like, yeah, when we think drugs getting a gun from the united states, but we also protect the population. so the population in his town to pay a lot of them would agree, you know, they do the same, but they also take care of us. and some of those groups as well. now have to add to it completely if you want to. we're mclean, you know, the civilians who are in a self defense group taking care of that. but it's also been very well documented over time in which we can, a lot of those groups have been inspected by the same sort of traits as the groups as they were fighting again. so i don't think it's straightforward solution. there also was a town, sorry because you awesome. be great, very quickly. in that state. yeah. that seem to have been able to make
5:45 am
it work by leaving the whole political upper off just one side. there's one quite famous one which we didn't get to mention the documentary, mainly indigenous town. i have visited that they basically ordered the politicians out and decided to go it alone with their counsel encountering mike, talking about that as well. and that's one of the times where it seems relative. they have been attacked, but it's basically a model, but they've decided playfully to go without the government without the state to be homeless. that i'm going to wrap up with some pictures of behind the scenes of you reporting during your most recent film and ask you, what are you planning to do next? i think you find me think was worth the camera man who is basically a block of ice from the way through to get paid by anything. so that's making on how big one of the 3 food produce the work commission and absolute rockstar in the
5:46 am
producing world. as well, the others, so i'm glad you're seeing a bit of the crew that in terms of what i'm going to do next. i hope of doing that them to make sure i had to take a little bit of a rest of them come with stress. but i'm thinking i have to go back because that town i believe is still under threat. they're still in a terrible situation. other things are happening. that low level war between those different groups comes it carries on at least a new generation come to continue their thoughts on the state. so we can just stop and say, well thanks local to commentary. bye bye. we're going to have to keep going back to those people and telling that story. so we'll see how that puts out john home and asking the hard stuff without getting shot. thanks, john. his latest film, the full report, living a mexico's kill zone, can be seen online now at al jazeera dot com. finally,
5:47 am
and it's got live conversation with a veteran photo journal. it's george steinmetz, he's a national geographic explorer. he works for the new york times. at 63 years old, has no intention of retiring. we talked about his long running nat geo assignment, feed the planet, and how he sees the world as a visual storyteller and an artist through his camera. a great picture, it's something that surprises you that informs you, that to me, it shows you the world or something in a way that you didn't know didn't understand it before it. it communicates something interesting and exciting. you're working on a project right now. of course, the, the planet, would you tell us about that and how that assignment started and how long it's been going on? the plan started about 8 years ago when national geographic, national geographic asked me to photograph a story about the global food supply. there were some projections that by the year
5:48 am
2050, we're going to have to double the world's food supply. and agriculture already occupies about 40 percent of the, of the land mass in the world. and so how are we going to double the world's food supply without basically wiping out all the natural areas we have left in the planet? and so, and i am a specialist in aerial photography. i do other things, but that's what i'm best known for. and they thought that my area perspective could give it a fresh view of that issue and problem and give you idea of the scale of agriculture on the planet. did you walk on see the, did it change your attitude towards food as a culture? the environment definitely, i mean that's why i did it. it was, it is a one off assignment. i worked for them for 30 some years and, and i said we're going to say, well, this is a much bigger story that can be told in a year. and almost think like
5:49 am
a year where pronouncing you have to do anything but agriculture is just so huge. i realized that it was, there was a larger story need to be told. and i thought there was a huge misunderstanding. i mean, in the united states now only, but what have percent of the populations about their culture and so like my kids, they think the food comes from supermarket and say no, it doesn't come through market. and so i think food, it's not like, i'm not a farmer, i'm not to kind of food geek. i just think that we need to understand where food comes from. we can make more informed decisions because food is the production of food is it's, it's a huge environmental issue. i mean, it's one of the biggest producers of greenhouse gases. and they said it used about 40 percent of the world's land mass. i mean, most of you quite cross united states, almost all you see is farmland and there are a whole lot of buffalo left and we've trans humanity is transformed a land and it's for us for what we're eating and our choices are have significant impact. sometimes i'm just say, oh tele people,
5:50 am
people who aren't in the farming business. i don't understand the farming and many popular farming anymore. it's more like an industrialized production. what did you see that supply history? what did you see that you feel that people know about? well, i mean, you know, one of my 1st we're really got me front of my 1st. my 1st field piece i feel work on this project was it was 20, kansas would have to read harvest. and while i was there, i got thrown in jail my 1st week. i was working a san for national geographic and i got to energy over flying over a feedlot and taking area photos. and i had no ill intent. i wasn't like they thought i was like working for some animal rights organization. no, i was just, i thought it was interesting to see the patterns of couse in the land and how they were doing what they were doing. and it became very clear to me when i was arrested and put in jail that there are, there are parts of our food system that separate us just don't want to see. and as
5:51 am
a journalist, you know, somebody asks you a question and if you have somebody question, go clammed up like, well, there's your story. i mean, you're on to something, you know. and so i realize, well, this need a little more investigation. what are these people trying to hide? i was just curious guy and they were throw me in jail for trying to show what they were doing and it was any malicious intent. and so. busy i think that it needs to be more transparency so that we buy something, we know how it was made and what the environmental consequences of that are. i'm, i'm thinking about your aerial photography which are well known for you. you take photographs as well. and there's just a real trend right now. we drove the top of he said, when i 1st came across your job he's, he's a drone x, but you're not using dr. zoe, i do use drugs. actually, i'm kind of a repel or had these days, but i didn't start out that way. i started out working, it was helicopters and planes and then i wanted to do about 20 years ago. i've
5:52 am
every interested in having deserts. and i wanted to do a story on the sahara and there were no planes to hire out there. so i had to bring my own. and i learned how to fly a motorized paraglider and hold on. let me show you. i've got a model one here. this is a model that a kid made for me in the share. but what i fly it's, it's like it's a motorized paragraph to see you have like a motor on your back. it's like a big a big leap lower and you run to take off and land and the wing. it's a, you know, just a minute bailing wire, but generally you for the wing up. it felt you know, it cops up into like a duffel bag and the motor present the whole back to so it's you fit on the back seat of it in the back seat of a car and then it takes a little assembly. but anyway, i was fly me and you can see like there's no cockpit or no wheels. and so you have this incredible 180 view of the world. and so i started doing that and that was actually what got the geographic and that had me photograph eric culture was a sub thought that i could see farming and to do in a new way. and,
5:53 am
and that's actually what actually got me thrown a jail. i was flying with one of those over the feedlot, and they didn't shoot me down, but they had me rescued when i landed. i'm going to turn my come around so we can look at some fuel. donny pictures, you can tell us how you got them. just come or else i'm going to stick out right now. low tech george. okay. but i could just let me just do this. so i guess much picture as possible. all right, whereas. 1 that's in scott city, kansas. and that was actually my 1st week work in this project. and i was curious after i got released from the garden city jail. and that was take it with the paraglider that was actually pretty hairy, flying if most people, when they look at all, it's a pretty photo. i look at it, i say, wow, that's a lot of when it take that i was heading down wind and i had my hands off the
5:54 am
controls because i, i take pictures of 2 hands. and so that was, that was kind of that was heavy flying. but i got the picture, but if you know the motor failed, i would have landed in that in that week. double. and i would have been okay, i just would have been a bit of a would have been a little ugly. what are you wearing when you're flying? i always were in the pants. that's why i'm still, you know, good walking condition and i have a helmet and a little radio, a radio helmet and a little flight suit to kind of, you know, to keep me warm and everything together falls out of my pockets. and this is this next because taken in, in china, the new non china, it's the and the world's largest rice patties least alerts, world's largest vertical price, pays the rice paddies. they're about 3000 feet of vertical terraces. when you go up to people, do you, how do you approach? do you ask them if you can take pictures? do you happening, help to with you?
5:55 am
how. how do you money stop, pop? the sociable yeah it's, i mean for example, here in the right path. for a lot of the pictures i was up in a ridge, i didn't know where they're going to be farming each stick is there was planting season and you know where they were going to go. they came from there from these all these different villages. and so what i would do is i would go up on the ridge and i would get my binoculars, i'd say, oh they're, they're about a 1000 feet down and 2 miles over. but i would say my drones are almost like a hawk. and i would go out and with the drones, they're really good. they could come in about 6 feet away. this is taken from the ground, but you could fly almost as close to people with the drones. and it's just kind of weird for them because these people are peasant farmers. and here's this, you know, drone comes in and some are a few draw before and, and this is taken with the drum. and so you could get close, but it's a little bit how shall i say it's not very social. and for i, after spending a few days doing that and looking all over, i decided to go to the village and walk down with the ladies and the sunrise. and
5:56 am
be with them when they were farming, cuz i wanted to photograph the mud and the sweat and be with them in the field. so it's a mixture i like i'm telling story from the years you the scope of things. but when you get close, you can, you can see the humanity you can see, but it feels like this is a really good question. sometimes i'm guessing that it's coming from a photographer. sometimes the most perfect shot is during the most uncomfortable moments. either the u. s. for the subject, how do you push past that feeling to capture the moment? well, it's, is it, that's a difficult decision and sometimes you have to, it's an insurance, a gut feeling whether you feel like way, how much of an impact you're having. the situation is, is the importance of the picture, not necessarily for your own personal, not really for your own personal gain, but to communicate a bigger issue. is that worth some discomfort? i mean, is it?
5:57 am
and sometimes, you know, if it's up, but say if it's say you're no wars or there's a funeral, you go and explain to the people why you're there. and often they want you to document what's going on because don't understand how important it is. and they want the world to know, but there are other times where it sometimes you've got to, i mean, you gotta be kind of, to be honest yet to be kind of a jerk and get the picture because otherwise, people there and i might like it. but it's more important for that story to be told, but again, it's not for your own personal again to make you know, an extra dollar. it's to try to tell a very important story. you can watch the full conversation with george. i met on the a j stream id tv page on instagram. and that's a show for today. i'll leave you with some of georgia photos from the feed, the pilot series for national geographic. thanks for watching. next. ah,
