2:34 am
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 lots 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're moving so slowly with the global goes. by the way, one of the global goes is to get the internet to everyone. yeah. you know, and that's moving fast. i'm one of the thing is that the, to the technology of don is spread words about black lives matter in the meeting. friday for the future with great speed and great passion and made people verified that so there's some good stuff happening. the development of the backs in absolutely incredible. i mean, the real art sir, is there is no money in trying to do things for the poorest people. then there is
2:35 am
the rich people, which is why the o cures from boldness than there are cures from 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 kids. so anyone out there who's motives use your skill, your technology, and, and you start to get the job done. my daughter started on campaign about period poverty of the u. k. in, within 2 months, the government change the law is the only check. yeah. they just needed. i'm didn't susie as of a not that much money and all the female at east the back it well. ok. i was going to give us an example that you were with the example i. this is tina at tina says,
2:36 am
the goals are so colorful that they basically should under normal circumstances, attract everyone. everyone should know about yes, beating the global calls however, you want to refer to them. because you've really gone out of what you rich, that, that everybody's going out of their way to make them appealing animations and graphics. and explanations about what they mean, why they important make the connections. yeah, i would say is, yeah, 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. uh huh. so what i mean, i don't know what, where the others are living. i don't know. i always say to go every person who knows about their go. if there is that great quote, say, don't a group of people can't change the world because that, that,
2:37 am
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. i'm i am thinking about your next passion project, your current passion. i love the, to the less said that he's that he's getting out there right now. how far ahead of you, when you strategize well, sometimes are 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 dull, but it's the most interesting in the world. i'm very obsessed by pensions at the moment. 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
2:38 am
a pension, they've got a choice, 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 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 that suddenly anyone who's got money in the 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. 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
2:39 am
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 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 station, naturally in the middle of london. thanks for sharing, which it okay for 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 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, but i was so wrong. katie, fall, he wore to austin and david daily's enthusiasm and combating gerrymandering was
2:40 am
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 our german or, 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 fix gerrymandering in the 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, 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
2:41 am
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, 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 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
2:42 am
of staff to donald trump. 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 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, 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,
2:43 am
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 a bill and there's only one thing left, which is the invading individual houses to separate the husband from the wife. oh yeah, you know as well yeah. someone will show i won't say kathy 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
2:44 am
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 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,
2:45 am
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, 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 a $180.00 days. and we mapped out we found the rest stops where cars stop and 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
2:46 am
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 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, yet she had a horrifying story about being beaten by the taliban. it made for sobering, po show discussion. his al does is alena tv it's. it's the sad reality. you know, it's, it's like i said earlier, like, why is it all to have been paris? he's not the only one. there are other journalists there, there, photographers,
2:47 am
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 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 checkpoints, 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,
2:48 am
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, 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 haven't answered
2:49 am
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 to 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 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
2:50 am
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, 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 packs 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,
2:51 am
leave the country and are trying to find safe refuge for them. international community didn't get taking any action about, again, journalists, the action that will be all good for all of the journalists and some fever. 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 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 are, are there 3rd countries and years situation in there?
2:52 am
i faced up to now on the air and not knowing that what will be happened in nate 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 a pakistan, like in fidget to 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, who they will be safety or, and also their life and good in these countries. and they need to the hill. and also one thing from of candice 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,
2:53 am
but they're going by the name of journalists, 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 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, ally. 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 the camera to be
2:54 am
quite honest, you can watch a full episode about the current state of press freedom in afghanistan and all the stream shows at stream dot outta 0 dot com. finally, an example of the stella guess the stream teen 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 . 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 inequity in incomes, or is that the result of politics?
2:55 am
i feel that in all countries what the and then it was done is exposed existing inequalities. i think this is india, and i see this in the united states where people who are citizens of a country feel, let them titled, to get services there that there, that, that is the right to have, 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 is only the 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
2:56 am
the actual, when lisa joined us on a stream, she came to talk about britney spears conservative ships and, and produce particular situation. very, not a 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 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
2:57 am
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 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
2:58 am
result in an 13 year old conscript. basically, you know, as you said, servitude or 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 wrongful conservatorship, and i'm still trying to find the way to make their messages hurt as well. lisa, and i tell do an excellent job of asking tough questions. and as i show for today, thanks for watching you next. ah, ah.
2:59 am
frank assessments, what's the point of view? and if multilateralism isn't part of its dna, we need someone we're sovereign states can exchange informed opinions is focus likely to change by doing behavioral. it's not going to change their behavior, they're going to continue to do what they do when it's going to be more in trade and less in terms of trying to match this morgans mentality. in depth analysis of the days global headlines inside story on al jazeera. with more than 200000000 cases of coven 19 worldwide governments, a batching to fight fresh weights of the virus. a new barrier. there has been a search and the number of people working vaccination appointments from the human cove. she to political and economic full out. i'll just there it brings you the latest. on the pandemic, visuals have vaccinated more than 1100 people here. all of the migrant farm workers,
