7:31 am

7:33 am
a bird watches paradigm. but this south pacific nation has one of the worst extinction records on earth. rats and other introduced premises have decimated the nike bird population. the decline is still ongoing. if we let it roll for another 50 years, they won't be much left to restore. now ye zealand is leading the world with an extraordinary goal to why pat, but countries with peers, by 2050. there is nowhere else on the planet like this. and we now have the technology, the well in the know how to do it and take those spaces. finally, after 2 days of 36 that we made our 1st, hey we both birds will join 14 other key we released in the last few mom. it's a vital step in saving while t we, which were almost walked out across this region 2 decades ago.
7:34 am
i high of them. yeah. okay. and today's bonus edition of the strain, the sneaky strategy that some politicians in the u. s. i've been using for years to manipulate elections, and in afghanistan we ask if journalism can survive the caliber, we start with richard curtis, the well known writer, director, producer, and a passionate advocate for the you and sustainable development goals. 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 i. technology can make things happening, seconds. we are moving so slowly with the global gauss, by like one of those is to get back to everyone. yeah. and that's moving past. i'm one of the things that the to the technology of done is spread words
7:35 am
about black lives matter in the meeting movement. and fridays for the future, the great speed and great passion and made people verified that there's some good stuff happening. the development of the credit back saying absolutely incredible. i mean, the real art sir is there is no, but bunny in trying to do things for the poorest people. then there is the rich people, which is why the o 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 you where all the necessary years of the moment. it's actually often businesses run by people, you know, who don't have ignited kids. so anyone out there, he's got motives use your skill, your technology, and, and you start to get the job done. my daughter starts non campaign about period
7:36 am
poverty of the u. k. in, within 2 months the government change the law is the only check. yeah. they just needed them. did it. and susie, as of and not that much money and all the female at east the back it 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 cows are so colorful that they basically she, under normal circumstances, attract everyone. everyone should know about the s leading the global, convers. how did you want to refer to them? because he's really gone out of what you it's that, that everybody's going out of their way to make them appealing, has to animations and graphics and explanations about what they mean, why they important making the connections. yeah, i mean i would say is 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, big prime minister of the u. k for 10 years and yet still only 90 percent of the
7:37 am
youth people. uh huh. so i don't know where the other delivery, i don't know. i always say every person who knows about the guy is that great quote. say don't. a group of people can't change the world because the fact that's the only way it's happened. you know. so what i would 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 car. a passion, like 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 1st, sometimes slow, you know, sometimes you'll have an idea and say, let's do this at christmas. i mean, i tell you, it seems dal, but it's the most interesting in the world. i'm very obsessed by pensions at the
7:38 am
moment. i would gladly have re read you. well, i mean, not only exam about start collecting mine, but gina, in the world, pensions are an investment fund of 50 trillion. i mean, that is more than we need are the goals. and 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 an ons deeper 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 that suddenly anyone who's got money in the back or in a pension or insurance, you can insist that your money is working every day. you go to the beach and your
7:39 am
money will be supporting some brilliant project. whereas now there's a real danger. 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 we actually stuck of forest in the middle of built up london, the cold, the forest for change. and we're trying to get everybody to go there and say what change they want in the world. so i'm trying to make is a beautiful things 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 from waterloo, chief safe and naturally in the middle of london. thanks for sharing, which it okay, full confession here i have my doubts about dedicating an entire stream episode to gerrymandering in the u. s. is the strategy that politicians used to control
7:40 am
electoral boundaries so that they can include voters they want in their district a much eyes the vote is that they don't. that's way too in the ways when international audience. i thought, but i was say wrong, katie far he wore to austin and david daily's enthusiasm and combating gerrymandering was infectious and made for a brilliant conversation. he, they are in the po show talking about how to stop this very on democratic practice . the best example of how german or, and can be combated is on this panel. it's katie, fe, he and what she did in michigan. and the story of how she martialed hundreds of thousands of volunteers to fix gerrymandering in a state where the system was 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,
7:41 am
so i would say this, i, i think one of the examples that speaks to how problematic gerrymandering 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 redraw those lines. they were determined to draw themselves at $103.00 map in the state, and in order to do so, they had to crack ashville in half. they to draw a line through the middle of the biggest city in western north carolina and they attached it to, to conservative, wider areas. and as a result, this, this a town that had made a district swing back and forth and was cracked among 2 districts. the man who
7:42 am
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 table. oh, can't star, i won't 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 becoming popular on the states 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 has been used in various states. but my favorite example was from pennsylvania because pennsylvania let us fletcher had passed
7:43 am
a really awful job amount. 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 legislators are. 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 a 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 lawns to go around individual buildings, so as to try to stick on one of their rivals with the we're a building and there's only one thing left which is inverting individual houses to separate the husband from the one. 0 yeah,
7:44 am
you know, as well yeah, someone will. sure. i will if that casey wrap us up, let's just do it. 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 in 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 a different water source that ends up poisoning the entire city with lead in their water. and me being recently out of college. 1 driving to work every day, hearing about the flint water crisis and basically just listening to politicians.
7:45 am
point the finger one at another. no, it was your fault. no is your fault. and nobody taking accountability. i just like clinic heat going to work, knowing that nobody was trying to prevent the next flint water crisis and that our current redistricting process offered no accountability. so i made that facebook post, not knowing how to enter your evander, just 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 teary monitoring for years and years and years, but didn't realize we could do something about it. so we made an online group, 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, so we crowd sourced that. we went around estate, we held 33 town halls and 33 days asking people, do you like the current system and 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
7:46 am
gather a bunch of signatures in a $180.00 days. and we mapped out we found the rest stops where cars stopped between holiday ed for thanksgiving. we literally set up like booths at these rest up. 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 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 han,
7:47 am
yet. she had a horrifying story about being beaten by the taliban. it made for sobering, po show discussion. his algae is alina tc. 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. there photographers in 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 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
7:48 am
a car. and with all the dangers with the i these we with, with the checkpoints, everything go to the district of the country, or hop on a plane and go to another province than get married. sean, 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, 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,
7:49 am
for instance, press freedom, but then how to, how do 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 jonas 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? 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
7:50 am
. 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 in country component. and we are continuing to work very hard at this . the other is trying to help those who want to leave and need to leave in order to preserve their life. frankly,
7:51 am
to do so at to find safe passage and to do so safely. at this point, i 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 do. taking any action about journalists, the action that will be all good for all of the journalists and some feeble journalists are already go to the foreign countries and they're now safe. but more of the journalist is our son arvin. afghanistan, there waiting. and this is the issue that international community
7:52 am
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 and, or how or are there 3rd countries in your situation in there, i faced up to now on the air and not knowing that what will be happen in 810, where will be moved. and they states also the foreign countries international community will. busy have entered a country so with a journalist like a pakistan like in pigeon, is stand like an artist on already some of the journalists most dear. and they're trying to go to the on other countries that you're or will, they will be safety or in also the life of the good in these countries. and they need to the hill. and also one thing from us can,
7:53 am
is down 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 that they're not journalists, but there are 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 hail damage about this situation, and it's important that her international community supports journalists in this situation 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
7:54 am
the situation, but will be not good in the next, or media 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 in the slum camera, to be quite honest, you can watch a full episode about the current state of press freedom in afghanistan and all the stream shows a stream dot out a 0 dot com. finally, an example of the stella guess the stream team books for you every single week. public health activists, agile proper, talked to me recently about coven vaccine inequity in the same show. lisa mccauley unpacked the brittany spears conservatorship story. now, after the show, i asked lisa to chapter agile about vaccines and agile tilt and lisa about brittany
7:55 am
. let's see how that worked out. i sure i've heard you speak about co 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 endemic has done is exposed existing inequalities. i see this in india, and i think this is united states where people who are citizens of a country feel less entitled to get services. that they're, that they're, that, that is their right to have, including coven vaccines. so to the extent that your poor to the extent that your disconnected from the centers of power, the less empowered you feel or to deserve
7:56 am
a vaccine or to find where you can get one. this is certainly the case in india, and i think to a less extend the lack of vaccine equity within the united states. i think speaks to existing in equities in the country that are not going to go away. just because there's a pandemic. agile when lisa joined us on a stream, she came to talk about breaking sport, conservative shapes and, and pickens particular situation bearing that in mind. what inciteful question to half belief. i find an astonishing that a burton with as much success as marge income as much publicity as brittany's peers would be in a situation. ready well into her adulthood where on the basis. ready of a temporary situation, perhaps with her emotional well being,
7:57 am
she can be forced into her position of servitude like this for the rest of her life . are without this kind of publicity. do you think there are ways by which the publicity that she got is crucial to her conservatorship being revoked or removed and if she hadn't been brittany spears, howard this have worked 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 transpired, which created new legislation which created this world wide on involvement and interests. there is no doubt in my mind that if the fans didn't show up and
7:58 am
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 britney's rights that took place in order to result in an 13 year old conscript. basically, you know, as you said, servitude on where she was exploited for 13 years. so yes, on brittany'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 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,
7:59 am
thanks for watching. the next we town the untold stories. ah, we speak when others don't. ah, we cover all sides. no matter where it takes us. a release we a fancier got from my eyes and power and passion. we tell your story. we are your voice, your news, your net al jazeera. ah, oh, wow. oh, well, jesse are every no friends once had a vast empire spending several continents but by the 1940s,
