colonizers, the stream brought together activities 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 address cation has a lot to do with it, but also the pressure, the no pressure has a lot to do with it. also, 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 what ration says. 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 flame and 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
of education during the flavor era. the health deficits, the black white wealth gap in the issue and the issues just go on and are the areas a base of the list which respect to connecting the dots between what happened yesterday and what is going on is still happening today. slavery far from being an artifact past history library and this remnant have a very, very tangible place right here. now, in the american economy, we have is lay labor, the bill ports and they are lines. and all of these institutions that are still remaining traffic 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 really, 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,
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, the camera compression commission has written just 60. can country spain, britain, nevertheless, then mark for 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 responsibility. 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,
but we must not this, this on those one, making amends. for example, the institutions, universities, an individual. there are several individuals in the united kingdom who have decided that i am looked into my path. it's not a great one. it is mix up in slavery, they are right now engage in community reparation in jamaica. so when people say will never happen, 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 case 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 document we want to call and treasure. remember this is personal to me. i have trace my
says that if he can't people in, cameroon, how did they get over to jamaica? there was no clue. no 2 is in no way. yeah. it was boland, voluntarily knew that talking to mom pallets and stuff. let me just bring it, bring in 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
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 avia 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, anti repeat 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,
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 at the homes, the 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 this extract of ism, because now many of those nations, but experience displacement and colonization are the ones that are feeling the climate and the ecological i spent 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. 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,
we are doing that. the powerful voices of as 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 their 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,
probing questions and scary situations and not getting in trouble. here's what he told me about his interviewing style. it's all about. so i mean, i try 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 automatically the words in some ways is not the least simple thing. but if you get away with a lot with a soft kind of voice, and especially when there's a lot of men with big guns around doing that, you speak pretty softness. and it comes across the film that we try and off the hall. and we don't show, i want to bring in the voice of catherine whitaker who's working with populations in metro acad and trying to work out how people are looking after themselves taken care of themselves. he, she is, i'm really interested in your brief response of the back of it. john, i'm a civilian groups have attract a lot of international attention,
but they are more sustainable ways in which said civil society and me jargon has responded to violence in the state. for example, local citizens, security council provides a way of rebuilding trust and 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 was yes and no, no, because we actually went out with the self defense group. nothing is will catherine's talking about towns that got given to the counsel and set out their own
self 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, you will soon, the trucks. and so yeah, we're moving drugs, getting a gun from the united states, but we also protect the population. so the population in his town and 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 put one it clean, you know, the civilians who are in a self defense group, 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 a straightforward solution. there are also other towns not sorry because you awesome. be great, very quickly. in that state. yeah. that seem to have been able to make
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 time. i have visited that they basically ordered the politicians out and decided to go it alone with their counsel. and catherine might be talking about that as well. and that's one of the times where it seems relative peace, they have been attacked, but it's basically a model. but they decided 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, doing your most recent film and ask you, what are you planning to do next? i think you find me think goose double was a camera man who is basically a block of ice way through to get by anything. so that's making on how big one of
the 3 food produced, the work commission and absolute rockstar in the producing world as well. the others, some crappy thing, a bit of the crude that in terms of what i'm going to do next up doing that to make sure i had to take a little bit of a risk and come with stress. but i'm thinking i have to go back because that town i believe it's still under threat, they're still in a terrible situation. other things are happening that low level will, between those different groups comes it carries on at least the new generation come to continue their thoughts on the state. so i don't think we can just stop and say, well thanks a lot. we put our 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 works 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 serra dot com. finally,
and instagram live conversation with a veteran photo journalists. 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 assignments, feed the planet, and how he sees the world as a visual storyteller and an office through his camera. a great picture is 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 planning would you tell us about that and how that assignment started and how long is the gang 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
2050, we're going to have to double the world's food supply. and agriculture already occupy it's about 40 percent of the of the land mass in the world. and so how we're 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'm 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 your work on see the planet? did it change your attitude towards food as a culture their environment? definitely, i mean that's why i did it. it was always 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. they can be told in a year. almost. you'll think like
a year we're 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 it was a huge misunderstanding. i mean, in the united states now only, but one have percent of the populations of all their culture. and so like my kids, they think the food comes from a supermarket and it's like no, it doesn't come through market. and so, and i think food, it's not like, i'm not a farmer, i'm not some kind of food geek. i just think that we need to understand where food comes from. so 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 landmass. i mean, most of you quite cross united states almost all the farmland and there are a whole lot of buffalo left and we transfer humanity is transformed the land and it's for us for what we're eating and our choices are have significant impact.
sometimes i just say old people, people who are in the farming business, i don't understand the farming and many popular isn't farming anymore. it's more like an industrialized production. what did you see that supply history? what did you see that you saw that people know about? well, i mean, you know what, my 1st were really got me part of my 1st my 1st field piece of feel work on this project was it was going to kansas what after we'd 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 trinity 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 the cows and 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
a journalist, you know, somebody asks you a question and if you have somebody question that gala clammed up like, well, there's your story. i mean, you're on to something, you know. and so i realize, well, this needs a little more investigation. what are these people trying to hide? i was just curious guy and they were thrown in jail for trying to show what they were doing in the malicious intent. and so 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 take off site golf as well. and there's a real trend right now we drove photography. so when i 1st came across you jody's either dro, next, but you're not using dr. value. i do use drugs actually i'm kind of a propeller had these days, but i didn't start up that way. i started out working it was hill cockers, and plains, and then i wanted to do about 20 years ago. i've every interested for having
deserts. and i wanted to do a story on mr. hara and there were no planes to hire out there. so i had to bring my own and i learn 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 year. but what i fly it's, well, it's like it's a motorized paragraph. so 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, this is, you know, this thing is bailing wire but generally you for the way up until you know it cops up into like a duffel bag and the motor presented back to so it's, you've been 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, you know, cockpit or no wheeled. and so you have is incredible. you know, 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,
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. donnie pictures. you can tell us how you got that camera else. i'm going to speak out right now. is low tech. george. ok. 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, it's a few days after i got released from the garden city jail. and that was take it with the paraglider. that was actually pretty harry flung it under the most people when they look and say all it's a pretty photo i look at. and i say, wow, that's a lot of when it take that i was heading down wind and i had my hands off the
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, a good walking condition. and i have a helmet and a little radio, a radio helmet and, and have 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 china, the new non china, it's the and the world's largest rice patties least alert. 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 it? do you ask them if you could take the pictures? do you have any help with you? how?
how do you monday, stop pop? the sociable been yeah it's, i mean for example, like 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 take is there was planting season and you know where they were going to go. they came from it 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 sit my drones, 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 in seminary drug 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
be with them when they were farming, cuz i wanted to photograph the mud and the sway 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 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, it's a difficult decision and sometimes you have to, it's an enter. it's a gut feeling whether you feel like way, how much of an impact you have in the situation is, is the importance of the picture. not necessarily for your own personal, not really for your own personal game, but to communicate a bigger issue. is that worth some discomfort? i mean, is it?
and sometimes you know, if it's up, but say if it's, say you know, wars are, there's a funeral. you go and explained to the people, why are there and off, and i want you to document what's going on because don't understand how important that is. and they want the world to know. but there are other times where 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 that i met on the age, a stream id tv page, on instagram. and that's i show for today. i'll leave you with some ga, the photos from the feed, the pilot series for national geographic. thanks for watching. next. ah
where politicians had not dropped the volume civil war. on out, there are the former finding harmony in pursuing his passions. my passions finding young and keeping his cultural tradition, nurturing the musical talents of his community, had been playing to dream music from monday morning to outside world tenzing, his family land. the most important thing that club brought to my mind. you actually start doing this. hector begun the music man, mice and bob we own our just the euro. welcome for iran, a president elect in his hometown of mesh. at the mom or the shrine, crowd had gathered to hear what their newly elected leader abraham, right. you see, have to say on the issues that affect the job shuttle in domestic politics, domestic policy and foreign policy. the focus should be on the dignity of this nation. and the focus should be on the fact that in any negotiation,
