5:32 am
a guarantee that that bill is going to be passed. if more liberal members of the house of representatives actually decide to vote for the infrastructure bill, so there's a lot of horse trading that goes on here. a lawyer known for his decades long battle against the u. s. oil giant chevron has been jailed for criminal contempt. steven jones again has been sentenced to 6 months in prison by a new court. the case stems from his fight on behalf of ecuadorian villages. to prove chevron polluted the amazon rain forest and the 1990 s. and the u. n's told ethiopians, prime minister does not accept the country, the decision to expel 7 of its senior personnel. ethiopia says the officials are being told to leave because they metals in the internal affairs of the country. that's my lot for today. thanks for your company, darn jordan, is with you in half an hour's time. right after the stream on counting the cost under the miracles legacy, the german economy, that is the envy of the world,
5:33 am
but unprepared for the digital age. apple kicks on game make an effort from an app store. is the phone maker abusing is monopoly and afghan businesses and losing international customers? counting the cost on al, just that. i high of them. yeah. okay. and today's bonus edition of the strain, the sneaky strategy that some politicians in the u. s. have been using for years to manipulate elections. and in afghanistan we ask if journalism can survive for taliban, we start with richard curtis, the well known writer, director, producer, and a passionate advocate for the un. sustainable development goes. when i saw to richard on instagram, there were loads of questions for him, including one from the cities who wanted to know why in an hour to a technology can make things happen in seconds. we are moving so slowly with the
5:34 am
global goes. by the way, one of the global goals is to get it back to everyone. yeah. yeah. and that's moving fast. one of the things that the to the technology have done is spread words about black lives matter in the me to move bry this for the future with great speed and great passion and made people very excited. so there's some good stuff happening. the development of the, the back saying, absolutely incredible. i mean, the real art sir is there is no body. it tried to do things for the orest people. then there is the rich people which is wider or cures from boldness than there are cures for malaria. you know, that is the problem. yeah, i think it's, you know, one of those times i just think anyone listening to this, he thinks i'm going to do a startup. i'm going to do something technological it's, it's up to where all the necessary years of the moment. it's actually often businesses run by people, you know,
5:35 am
who don't have perfect motors. so anyone out there who's got perfect motives, use your scale, your technology, and, and you start to get the job done. my daughter starts in non campaign about period poverty at the u. k. and within 2 months the government change the law is the only check. yeah. they just needed a bit of enthusiasm and not that much money and all the female at ease to back it. yeah. well ok. i was going to make it as an example of it that you were with the example i. this is tina at tina says the cars are so colorful that they basically should under normal circumstances, attract everyone. everyone should know about the std, the global calls. however, you want to refer to them because you really gone out of what you rich, that, that everybody's going out of their way to make them absolutely has to animations and graphics. and just explanations about what they mean, why they important making the connections. yeah, i mean, not, not,
5:36 am
i would say is yet to be optimistic about the people who don't know. stop me there . be pessimistic because of that. i remember once reading that margaret thatcher being prime minister of the u. k for 10 years and yet still only 90 percent of the youth people at her. so i don't know what where the others are living. i don't know. i always say every person who knows about their go. if there is that great quote, say, don't think the group of people can't change the world because the that, that's the only way it's ever happened. you know, so i'd say is that everyone who knows something about themselves does something about the goals they will succeed. and i am thinking about your next passion project or your current passion. i love the to the close to that is that he's getting out there right now. how far ahead of you, when you strategize well, sometimes are sometimes slow. you know,
5:37 am
sometimes you'll have an idea and say, let's do this at christmas. i mean, i tell you, it seems dark, but it's the most interesting in the world. i'm very obsessed by pensions at the moment. most neutral, i would gladly agree with you. well, i mean, not only exam about start collecting mine, but gina, in the world. tensions are an investment fund of 50 trillion. i mean, that is more than we need other goals, anybody young who takes out a pension, they've got a choice. do you want ethical, sustainable pension that's going to support, you know, affordable housing and renewable energy and brilliant stops old. you want an old style pension, that's probably a deep are station, fossil fuels and everything like that. now there's an instant thing that people can judge. i started the campaign, go make my money matter. and so far we've moved 500000000000 in the u. k. a low so
5:38 am
that suddenly anyone who's got money in a bank or in a pension or insurance, you can insist that your money is working every day. you go to the beach and your money will be supporting some brilliant project. whereas now there's a real danger that you're sitting there fighting for peace and your money's actually paying for arms. so, you know, i keep trying to find little specific things that people can act on. and pensions is one of the ones that i most passionate about. and then this summer we did a brilliant project in london, which he actually stuck a forest in the middle of built up london called the forest for change. and we're trying to get everybody to go there and say what change they want in the world. so trying to make is a beautiful day and trying to practical things as well. beautiful and practical. he is a shot of the forest for change at richard just mentioned. it was just around the corner
5:39 am
from waterloo, cheap, safe, and naturally in the middle of london. thanks for sharing, which it okay for confession here i had my doubts about dedicating an entire stream episode to gerrymandering in the u. s. is the strategy that politicians used to control electoral boundaries so that they can include voters they want in their district? a margin the vote is that they don't. that's why to in the ways, when international audience, i thought what i was say wrong, katie, fall, he water orson, and david daily's enthusiasm and combating gerrymandering was infectious and made for a brilliant conversation. he, they are in the po, show, talk about how to stop this very on democratic practice. the best example of how german are and kind of be combated is on this panel. it's katie fe, he and what she did in michigan and the story of how she marshall hundreds of thousands of volunteers to fixed gerrymandering in the state where the system was
5:40 am
dysfunctional and completely broken up. so it is a pleasure to be on here with a democracy hero as well as another democracy hero and walter. so, so i would say this, i, i think one of the examples that speaks to how problematic germ entering can be is north carolina's 11th district. in the, in the western mountain part of the state, which throughout the 2 thousands was a really interesting swing district. it went back and forth between republicans and democrats as political wins shifted up in 2010 republicans won the control of north carolina state legislature. and the power to reach all those lines, they were determined to draw themselves at 13 map in the state. and in order to do so, they had to crack asheville, and half they to draw a line through the middle of the biggest city in western north carolina. and they attached it to, to conservative, whiter areas. and as a result, this,
5:41 am
this a town that had made a district swing back and forth and was cracked among 2 districts, the man who steps forth in an open republican primary because when you've got an uncompetitive seat like this, the only thing that matters is the party primary and so the, the most wild base candidate of either side tends to actually when that this guy had been a sandwich shop proprietor, his name was mark meadows. you might have learned his name when he became the chief of staff to donald trump. uh huh. but his path to power was paved by gerrymandering . that's what gave him his, in congress and his seat at the tip. oh, can't star. i won't that keep the narration going. she will let me start with a triumph story because in pennsylvania. oh, you saw that ah, virtues of something that is become unpopular on the stairs,
5:42 am
which is inviting the public to submit their own mouths and you set up a portal by which they can do it by computer. they can submit what they think the mouse should look like, and this is being used in various states. but my favorite example was from pennsylvania because pennsylvania legislature had passed a really awful jar amount of one of these classic terrible ones. but because there was public map submission, a piano teacher from allentown, pennsylvania had submitted a mouth and when the case got litigated up to the pennsylvania supreme court, they pointed to her mouth and they said her mouth is so obviously better than what you let us little her, we both to out the legislators mouth because the mouth submitted by a member of the public was better. this is, this is a great when it, if there's time, i'll tell about story, which is we found in our maryland hearings. and it goes back to david's point about the technology getting better and better and better to afer, but good or else. but we found that they had drawn lines to go around individual buildings, so as to try to stick on one of their rivals with the we're
5:43 am
a bill and there's only one thing left, which is the invading individual houses to separate the husband from the one. 0, you know, as well yeah, someone will. sure. i will say guys he rap i was just story. yeah, sure. i think i'll just start with our story. so. so in michigan there was the flint water crisis, which basically has actually its roots and gerrymandering. there was a law passed that the people of michigan actually tried to repeal basically saying that if your city is in financial distress, the governor can put somebody in charge to make your decisions. and you didn't elect that person. the people in michigan gather a bunch of petition signatures, they repeal this law, the newly jerry mander legislature, their 1st acts and they do is they find a loophole and reinstate that law. that law and that decision ends up switching the water source for a primarily minority community, flint, michigan to
5:44 am
a different water source that ends up poisoning the entire city with lead in their water. and me being recently out of college driving to work every day, hearing about the flint water crisis and basically just listening to politicians. point the finger one at another. no, it was your fault. no is your fault. and nobody taking accountability. i just like clinic keep going to work knowing that nobody was trying to prevent the next flint water crisis and that our current re districting process offered no accountability . so i made that facebook post, not knowing how to enter your evander the saying, like hey, anybody else want to help? and suddenly i saw that i wasn't alone. they were actually thousands of people who had been frustrated with your a mentoring for years and years and years, but didn't realize we could do something about it. so we made an online group for me and a bunch of strangers and we started trying to google, how do you and jerry manager is a and we found out we had to write constitutional language,
5:45 am
so we crowd sourced that. we went around estate, we held $33.00 town halls and $33.00 days asking people, do you like the current system? if you don't like it, what do you think is fair? and we kept track of everybody's answers. we wrote that language and then we had to gather a bunch of signatures in $180.00 days. and we mapped out we found the rest tops where cars stop and between holiday ed for thanksgiving. we literally set up like booths at these rest of some people would stop to have them sign the petitions or at football games. we are all across the state, gathered plenty of signatures from every single county and then ultimately talk to millions of people to vote. yes, on this and what's really the most exciting part is right now we have an independent commission, 13 strangers who all are, don't have a strong political background. are going around the state, listening to our citizens, trying to work with as much integrity as they can to make sure these lines are drawn fairly and actually representing the people of michigan. and that's how you
5:46 am
make gerrymandering and exciting conversation on the screen. thanks, katie, water, and david in afghanistan, we are seeing opportunities for journeys to work freely. shrinking. garcia hung out, she had a horrifying story about being beaten by the taliban. it made for sobering, po, show discussion. his algae is alinda tiffy. it's, it's the sad reality. you know, it's, it's, like i said earlier, like, why is that or to have been paris? he's not the only one. there are other journalist fair photographers there, there, artist fair. you know, i myself like why mind ohio right now? you know, and i'm thinking about going back and i'm wondering what, what is the value when going back? if you have to operate in this law mich emerett. if not only do have to worry about the potential for violence, but you also know that everything you do has to go through this group in one way or
5:47 am
another, whether it's directly or indirectly. they will be in charge of what you cover. and they will make sure that what you cover is somehow in line with what they want. you know, you can't just get nook. i used to be able to get in a car. and with all the dangers with the i these with, with the check points, everything go to the district or of the country, or hop on a plane and go to another province than getting at a char. and go to go, go to the districts and villages. you can't do that any more. everything requires some kind of interaction with them. some kind of approval by them, some kind of monitoring by them. that's not journalism anymore. are they afraid and do you think the taliban is afraid of it's image getting out? that is not an image that they can control. i think the tall one doesn't know what it wants. you know, if, if you interact with any of them, you realize they're not the smartest guys in the room. and, you know, they, they will just say things that they've memorized that don't actually mean anything
5:48 am
. you know, and, and that's how they're running their, their, their government at this moment because, you know, you will have their higher up saying all of these great things about, you know, for instance, press freedom, but then how to, how did their guys get out of an armored car, where did they get the armored car from? and then beat up a journalist, one of the most busy areas of the city for asking day laborers what the economy is like. you know, and they, they still haven't answered for they have an answer for that. they have an answer for what they did to the newspaper reporters. and they have an answer for what they do to the photographer and who not. because they have no answers. to say, i'm just wondering if in what way you're able to support journalists in afghanistan who are being harassed, who are being beaten and who are being deciding that it's too dangerous a profession for them to stay in. what are you able to do?
5:49 am
what support can come from outside? is that even possible? so it is, it is possible and i should say that we began, you know, the situation began deteriorating in january more or less as the taliban increased . it's, it's advance and control of the country. and one of the things that we have been trying to do is to support journalists from abroad along with other press freedom groups to remain safe to the extent possible in the country. so that means directing people to safe houses. that means ensuring that people follow digital security guidelines. there are people who have had to scrub their social media or, you know, scrub their phones to make sure that there is no evidence, quote unquote found of some kind of activity that may get them into trouble. there are people who have had to lower their public profile, so that's the income treat component and we are continuing to work very hard at
5:50 am
this. the other is trying to help those who want to leave and need to leave in order to preserve their life. frankly, and to do so at to find safe passage and to do so safely. at this point. obviously post withdraw. we continue to engage with various governments to find a pass for resettlement relocation for journalists, african journalists. and we have been to some degree successful. we have managed to help 46 journalists and their families, leave the country and are trying to find safe refuge for them. international community didn't get taking any action about journalists, you, the action that will be all good for all of the journalists and some fever. journalists are all ready to go to the foreign countries and they're
5:51 am
now safe. but more of the journalist is arvin, if can, is stand there waiting. and this is where the issue that international community and the association of supporting who supporting journalists, they should take action for these people who are in afghanistan also are the journalists who are also endo, how are, are there 30 countries and years situation in there? i up to now on the air and not knowing that what will be happen in a stand where will be moved and they states also the foreign countries international community will. busy have entered a country so with a journalist like as pakistan like in pigeon, is stand like an artist on already some of the journalists most dear. and they're
5:52 am
trying to go to the, on other countries that you're, or will, they will be safety or in also the license because in these countries and they need to the hill. and also one thing from afghanistan, some departure of a family of some are people who are not related to journalists and, but they come by. they go by the name of journalists to the foreign countries. some of the association of journalists, they've taken them to the other countries. there, they're not journalists, but they're going by the name of journalist journalists that are more of journalists in afghanistan in this situation in a, by this action is very nervous and they're very, a damage about this situation. and it's important that her international community supports journalists in this situation,
5:53 am
and this is if they do not support them in this situation. oh, i think oh, there will be. he nod safe and we will be face the new for years. you'd face her the situation, but will be not good in the next, or median, or journalists. i just have one more question. thank you, sir. thank you, gypsy for you. allie. when will you be out to be in afghanistan and report freely? when do you think that might be i can foresee that and as long gemara to be quite honest, you can watch a full episode about the current state of press freedom in afghanistan and all the stream shows it stream dot out a 0 dot com. finally, an example of the stella guess the stream teen books for you every single week. public health activists, agile proper. talk to me recently about coven vaccine inequity in the same show.
5:54 am
lisa mccauley unpacked the brittany spears conservatorship story. now, after the show, i asked lisa to chapter agile about vaccines and agile to talk to lisa about brittany. let's see how that worked out. i sure i've heard you speak about cold there vaccine in equity. i'm. i'm concerned about it right here in the united states. do you feel that that's a result of an inequity in incomes, or is that the result of politics? i feel that in all countries, what the democrat done is exposed existing inequalities. i think this in india, and i see this in the united states where people who are citizens of a country feel, let them titled to get services, then that there, that, that is the right to have,
5:55 am
including the vaccines. so to the extent that your poor to the extent that you're disconnected from the center, the power, the less than you feel to do the vaccine or to find where you can get one this case in india. and i think to a, let's extend the lack of vaccine equity within the united states. i think speaks to existing inequities in the country. that's not going to go it just because the the actual when lisa joined us on a stream she came to talk about putting space conservative ships and, and produce particular situation. bearing that in mind, what incisive questions you have for lisa i astonishing that a person would have my success as much income as much publicity as brittany
5:56 am
would be in a situation. ready well into her attitude where on the basis. ready of a temporary situation, perhaps with her emotional well being, she can be forced into a position of servitude like this for the rest of her life without this kind of publicity. do you think there are ways by which the publicity that she got is crucial to look into the dish and being invoked or removed. and if she hadn't been britney spears how this up, that's such a great question. and i absolutely am convinced that the love and compassion of her fans at the in cept, which created the free brittany movement, which created documentaries, where we got to see some facts that were very disturbing in terms of what
5:57 am
transpired which created new legislation which created this world wide on involvement and interest, there is no doubt in my mind that if the fans didn't show up and just yet they were laughed at. they were ridiculed. but they absolutely had everything to do with getting to the point where people became, became aware of the many, many legal violations of brittany's rights that took place in order to result in an 13 year old conscript. basically, you know, as you said, servitude or she was exploited for 13 years. so yes, on britney's fans deserve all the credit. and unfortunately i'm here to tell you that there are many people who are far less famous and far less wealthy. that i personally represent that would never have a chance of getting out of
5:58 am
a wrongful conservatorship. and i'm still trying to find the way to make their messages hurt as well. lisa, and i shall do an excellent job of asking tough questions. and as i show for today, thanks for watching you next me when you from a neighborhood known as a hot bed of radicalism. ready you have to fight to defy stereotypes. in going shampooing the stories we don't often hear told by the people who live them in all men is only one man with nick and survival along some of the boxes this year. on al jazeera, there are some things you can never forget them. there are scenes which will be etched in your memory forever. in syria,
5:59 am
we documented atrocities and in the northern city of aleppo, we witnessed something we will never unseen. the bodies bound and executed their hands, tied the gunshot wounds to their heads were bad enough, but watching the relatives identify their loved ones. that's one of the hardest things i've ever done as hard as it was. we had and needed to film because maybe one day, those responsible can and will be held to account. it is an honor, but at the same time it is a challenge to do this job. to bear witness to history as it's made to make sure what is recorded is accurate and truthful. i'm santa hunter. i joined al jazeera as part of the launch team in 2006. the protesters have called for a 1000000 mom march. in that time i've covered wars revolutions,
6:00 am
elections. i'm mandatory crews from the preventative, correct. just so the battle fields are on, most of our job is to get to the truth and empower people through knowledge. ah, the u. s. a pass is 700000 deaths from cobit 19 as nearly 17000000 americans remain unvaccinated. ah, along darn jordan. this is al jazeera live from dough are also coming up wrong rather whether it's in 6 minutes say we're.
