10:34 pm
super fans. i monopolistic big tech. indigenous colombians have been toppling statues of european colonizers, challenging how the country's history is. remember, media shut downs and misinformation. a month of taliban rule is leaving, it's mark on of kind of sounds, news, industry. and the taliban has been dictating terms on what off can women can, where triggering some serious pushback online do not touch my clothes, shows off countrymen in their true color. the indications have been there for months in speeches, policy, proposals, and party propaganda. but in the past week or so, it's become clear that season things china has embarked on a campaign that could transform the country's tech, entertainment and media industries. much of the parties current focus has been on regulating china's tech giants that have grown at warp speed. establishing monopolies and abusing consumer data. officials are also asserting control over the
10:35 pm
rocket and often toxic world of celebrity and pop culture. the communist party has advocated for stars who quote, uphold political literacy, moral conduct, and artistic standards. it has criticized a feminine men on screen and has thought to curb an obsessive fan culture. all these decrees have been presented as being aimed at the moral well being of citizens. critics are calling them an overreach of a paternalistic state. a starting point this week is the cult of celebrity in china the thinking like, you know, near to him, william to sounds like he's a good evening she can do without him, hopefully to get to the way out. hopefully the show this story almost reads like the screenplay for the tv drama,
10:36 pm
except that it is in fact very soon, and it's playing out across china. on one side, you have some of the countries most popular young celebrity actors, musicians, online influences with fan followings in the hundreds of millions on the other side, a serious set of policymakers. men in sooth looking to instill some discipline and propriety on an industry that many would have thought to frivolous, to attract so much of aging attention for the chinese communist party. and for the chinese government, it has always been crucial to occupy what they call the commanding height of ideological background. so in that regard, these regulation targeting celebrities, our church and, and payment media. i'm not exactly worthless because there are political implications of and payment media and celebrity voucher. we're starting to see more
10:37 pm
specific guidelines. and in some cases like training resources. being released for these celebrities and influencers, not just in terms of like political correctness, but also in terms of how they dress, how they sort of conduct themselves. it's interesting that's not just the conduct of celebrity themselves and craft down on but also the conduct of their fans as well. my goal is to ensure that can be very active. even raven seen it is developed into a subculture that is very vivid, very lively. you look at some of these websites and chat groups, it's in a language in india, and that frightens people who like order and control like the chinese come, his tidy 2021
10:38 pm
has been a mentor for the chinese communist party. the ccp in july, it marked its intensity challenge. at the home of the 5 t. m. the country is president feagins being in his 9 years in office. he has not been shy about his desire to stay longer in his post, even orchestrating the removal of term limits on the presidency, so that he can remake the chinese state in accordance with his vision. over many months, she has been reiterating his blueprint for the next piece of china's development. in the chem shantee there mean? hopefully, she does laming gym, the flu of new regulations on the tech industry and on the entertainment sector are
10:39 pm
part of what she calls the common prosperity plan. policies to narrow the growing wealth gap in the country, the furtive move, but the party, i'm the president seem confident now is there time shooting pin has banks a lot of not just regime supports, but political capital that is in part or result of china's relatively good handling of the crew of our supper demick, he believes that he is now able to do some pretty bold things to really fundamentally reshape, becoming decades through technology and through the communist parties. hold on culture through, you know, it's increasing involvement in the economy of the state. we have seen for some time that she's being wants to instill a new sense of purpose and discipline and orthodoxy on chinese culture. but i
10:40 pm
think it really began with chinese canadian singer actor general celebrity called chris who, who has been accused of sexually assaulting some of his fans, rate back inventions against a pop star has pushed china's me to movement back into the spotlight. i think that particular scandal perhaps escalated attention to this issue in johnny society, but also being chinese policy making and leadership as well. ah, the curriculum can be broke in july, this year, unleashing a torrent of vicious online attacks from his followers against some of his elated victims. it wasn't the 1st time overzealous times had created headlines in china. ways i think one of your highest it's i thought you would should have gotten to the challenging was a competitive fandom,
10:41 pm
dr. online engagement and revenues for many of the agencies and brands and studios that back china top celebrities. however, it led to numerous instances of obsessive stocking, persistent trolling, as well as unchecked spending by young fans on products dad. idols endorse made a key board until blank down to the door, yakking dash bunk champion height. 20 again, g dunkin, back back at the same time as all this. that have been a dizzying idea of new regulations, but china's online space, the effect, thousands of businesses from taxi healing companies like dd to multimedia and kick conglomerates like 10 cent and social media behemoths, like bite dance, that only tick tock on the regulators radar. i data privacy, tech monopolies, and predictive algorithms. ah,
10:42 pm
so these are actually issues that western government and the regulators also wrapping with facing the astronomical growth of digital platforms. these are companies that are really abusing their power because they have a 2 such giant digital platforms. and they often, almost as the structure of many other daily public studies in china, users are being more and more concerned with how corporations are able to access and use their data. especially tense. alibaba, which, you know, given the portfolio of companies within these 2 friends, they can make quite detailed profiles of, you know, people shopping spending, health data, so on and so forth. so it's a thing that a lot of people in china say it's long overdue quote. apart from
10:43 pm
a concern to customers, which i don't think was entirely fine by any means. i think there's also plenty which there's sense that these companies are getting away with this because they think they're getting a bit to politically after the as well. and therefore, we need to put them in line and remind them that as they go low, making profit have to remember what the political bottom line is in china. the chinese government regulatory spree has stirred debate amongst citizens, investors and international media. some are calling it a new cultural revolution. is this the 2nd, the cultural revolution? comparisons with malice, cultural revolution back in the late 1900 sixties and seventies have abounded. but they've been off the marked. so i think a lot of people make comparison between what's happening to the cultural revolution, just out of abject ignorance than the appeal of using such
10:44 pm
a comparison is because that is the only sort of political that the mass campaign that they are aware of. the cultural revolution actually was effort by mouth kind of do an end run around of the party itself. and to attack the party using sort of, you know, the mobile is ation of young people from its flags. the main victim of the cultural revolution was the communist party itself. and so that is clearly not what is happening right now. this is the party itself being more assertive. it is something that she has kind of articulated all along the vision of power and prosperity for a china led by the chinese hobbies party. me
10:45 pm
this week mark a month of taliban roland of kind of sun, and it's becoming increasingly clear what the takeover means for the countries media. johanna who have been following developments. jo, what's the latest? well, earlier this week, so low news which is of understand most widely watched television news network reports that at least $153.00 of gun media organizations have seized operate since august 15th, which is the day that the former government fell to the taliban. are these outlets include newspapers, radio stations, television channels, and at least 20 provinces and media workers at these organizations have cited new restrictions under the taliban, as well as economic hardship and the main reasons for terminating their activities . now the taliban has repeatedly claimed that is committed to providing a safe environment for journalists to operate in. but these new numbers of these now defunct media organizations really tell a quite different story. the telephone has also been accused of body media access
10:46 pm
to the punchy valley. that's the area in the northeast of the country, which was the sight of an armed rebellion, which supposedly fell to the taliban just last week. there are also reports of taliban killing civilians in the area, but it's very difficult to corroborate what's happening on the ground there. right . yes. and that is because the taliban has imposed a complete communications blackout jamming both phone and internet connections. not . they have also closed the main axis wrote into this region, meaning that is extremely difficult to verify any reports of the killing of civilians. but even the taliban claim that has taken full control over the region. now the taliban is justified this communications blackout by saying that it was needed to dissuade quote, those who wanted to turn punchier into a bit of sedition. ok, so it might not be a habit of sedition, but it's definitely a bit of misinformation now. absolutely take, for example, this a grainy video that circulated on twitter. it was posted by
10:47 pm
a pro resistance movement account. and it shows heavy fighting and a mountainous area, allegedly, from recent battles in punch here. but it later a merge that, that video was actually shot years ago, most likely in yemen. and the dissemination of these kind of fake videos definitely makes it a lot easier for the taliban to discredit any port than to make it out of the region, including those of the killing of civilians. now the taliban has told the international community to quote, take a closer look at the area to find out for themselves. that would be difficult because that's the area they've closed off, right? exactly. okay, thanks joe statues are among the oldest forms of visually media for millennia. they've been used to send implicit messages about the kinds of people and values we should look up to quite literally. when people had icons down, it's most often in rejection of what they stanford and in the 2020s. it's
10:48 pm
a tactic that the on trend since the killing of the african american george floyd in may last year. i'm p basis on both sides of the atlantic have toppled hundreds of historical monuments from slave traders to european monarchs. but few protest groups have made as much of a tangible impact as columbia, as indigenous nissan community. as core players in anti government protests over the past year, nissan leaders and their allies have toppled numerous statues of european colonizers. in doing so, they have ignited a debate about the country's history and the place of indigenous communities in it . the listening posts, daniel tutti now, on colombia, fallen statues, and the legacy they're leaving behind much of the well deserted cities have been defining images of the pandemic era, but not in columbia 1000000 to fill the streets in successive waves, that strikes and protests. what began as
10:49 pm
a movement against economic reforms as mushroom into pricing. again, inequality corruption and police brutality. protesters had targeted the status quo itself. and some of its most foundational likely owners like barely enough and i'm on the bottom that stopped last set 10, but demonstrators, from the digital, nissan community began knocking conquistadores spanish colonizers off their pedestals. they handle stuff by young. why don't i spell? oh, so the 1st of all was beyond the bed in the city he founded papa. yeah. then the assumed it was someone who dispossessed and deny lated our people. we see him as a rapist in mass murderer and the land. the community decided to carry out this
10:50 pm
autonomous act optical and my station nobody met. okay. well 1st thing i did when i saw the stuff falling was to run and hug a guy, another community leader. because there was a feeling of the register. why don't we remember the struggle of our sisters and felt the conviction of being part of a historical jonathan law who is the case study guy? what columbia government called an act of vandalism, was merely a warning shot. in april, protested in the city of cali, hold down the last remaining monument of babylon, coz up a month later in the capital. bobo, top me sak demonstrators perform the traditional burial for another conquistador gonzalo humanistic. as the 2 men were among the mercenaries who lead the spanish conquest of the americans, they landed in the 16th century, conquered much of what is now columbia, and the slave don't massacred. indigenous people who stood in their way off the
10:51 pm
columbia became independent in the 1900 century descendants of european settlers remained in charge and they told their version of columbia as history in the statues they built. a visual medium that all colombians, literate, or not, could understand well glowing as i have in columbia at the time. this touches will me, we are trying to build a nation and we build that nation on the shoulders of the conquistadores and also our independence here. so the statues were about reaffirming us and its roots, reaffirming that the conquest was a valuable and praiseworthy endeavoured by yourself and be hourly municipal, monumental musket. these monuments also create an image of power that made of bronze and so imply authority. but that controversial because they symbolize the conquest and the genocide and the position of religion and the new political structures that came with it. so the statues represent severe repression for many
10:52 pm
social groups by the group of indigenous people have been at the forefront to columbia as protest movement, demanding the return of ancestral lands and justice. but the killing of community leaders, according to the un, 69 indigenous human rights defenders have been murdered in the past 5 years alone. to see these injustices as legacies of european domination. legacy is embodied by colonial statues. but it was a black lives matter movement to the united states. protesters are carrying down and damaging memorial that 1st demonstrated the power of toppling monuments as an active protest. millennial by last seen that they love us, us, a nation of the african american, george floyd, and all the reactions to it was a very important for us struggling up in america. tell you america. latino included him in 2 important things because digital movement and columbia is about to stop or
10:53 pm
struggle for territory and struggle over demolishing the statues. symbols that re victory monies to fight for member. it's a form of colonial education but will now for 2 months. but i will here and be call me at the convenience. it's a continent wide movement, but in this country it's also part of the new awakening among the socially excluded . it's about questioning symbols that represent the power of certain social, which is in big shag, toppling those symbols is powerful because it shows that there isn't just one version of history. there are many that been altered. silence can feel that we can still see those yet. los, this indian pivot of premier agent is colombian. a resentful defeat in the conquest and the fact that the dominant ideology trying to cover towns squares across
10:54 pm
colombia and the world, that's what dominant ideology is due. the conquistadores were people acting according to the ethical standard of their time. we can't judge what they did, even though in some cases i was horrible based on the standards today of the euro centric version of the colonial past. the one that still dominate colombia public spaces from statues to school textbooks to st name's dissenting. perspectives, have long been confined to the fringes among indigenous colombians and on the political left. but the protest of the past year has amplified those voices and the spectacle of falling monuments as for the mainstream to pay attention. as media outlets cover the pros and cons of the conquest, the doors indigenous lead us to use the exposure to explain the motive. way study gum in the, in my get on there much. i don't even know the
10:55 pm
government has also changed time. consulting would meet our leaders pledging to review the presence that's in monuments. but the protesters, whether indigenous or not fema bits in june demonstrate is in the city of barron kia, told down a statue of christopher columbus. the stunt could scarcely have been more symbolic or provocative. this is the figure because the very name of the country stems from his name and his involvement in the discovery of america. even though we know that they were actually early a european settlers on the american continent. but for intention as people. he represents the conquest and colonization, and that's why we've seen columbus stat. she's knocked down all over the world over the last few years on 100 us. but can you run like my come tonight as he was a great marina who discovered the new word and that's why such a thing were built just from
10:56 pm
a nautical standpoint to deserve the monument. the economy does sympathize with the mesa protests, but we believe that no one has the right to knock down what's already there because they're part of our history. part of who we are. it's that simple. this isn't the not the new we hadn't taken. the government will not be doing any idea whether it be reviewing the presence of statues or something we citizens probably, but only about the government to keep. and we're asking all institutions to rethink how they operate and allow indigenous people to participate can just be instruments of doors and seems we are leaving people, people who are demanding territory, demand life. christy story, apple. lima, glassy, la memoria, the toppling of colonial statues is triggered to debate about colombia history and identity that is now playing out in the country,
10:57 pm
public spaces. the culture ministry says it plans to replace the fallen monuments. however, its latest move has been to take down other me, sack targets in the capital. in the meantime, protest as in kelly has put up a statue of their own, the monument to the resistance colombians and watching these faces to see where the story of what columbia is goes from here. we're going back to a story from a kind of son now, for many african women, especially those in the big cities, the return of taliban rule has meant alien position of stringent limits and personal freedoms. restrictions on what professions women can pursue, whether they can study and what they wear. the full body veil known as the cha doors, often blue or black in color, is what the taliban have mandated claiming it to be islamic dress. it has spurred protests by african women across the country and they've been joined online by
10:58 pm
a campaign with the hash tag. do not touch my clothes. it was started by doctor behavior lolly, an african historian, and it is triggered a flood of images from professional women, academics, journalists, both inside and outside the country, reading a range of colorful off concludes. here are some of those images and tweet. we'll see you next time here to the listening post. ah,
10:59 pm
ah, ah. news news. news. news. an astonishing bill documenting he didn't have one of the most embattled corners of the globe. child that can stand 20 years of war. follow
