12:07 pm
despite threatened killing. let's listen back in. ha, i'm kid in the provisions outfit. no, we'll thank you very much madam chair. i don't know whether to say, congratulations or thank you maybe or and i think you can always try to accountability journalism investigations that we are whole howard account. it's just become far more difficult with the advent of technology and social media. and then when you social media has allowed, but being authoritarian dictators to be to exploit their algorithm. and let's take this now. so the challenge is live for us at that announcement in all slow. so is that a bit of a surprise?
12:08 pm
there was a lot of talk about perhaps regret that somebody call atlanta winning the prize, but it went to 2 journalist can't say were disappointed. of course at all a quite sir. margaret thatcher, the british, her former prime minister, the unexpected always happens. and i think with a nobel peace prize that is very much the case. there is often with the nobel peace prize, a slightly left field candidate, a group that comes out from slightly lower down the list of bookies, favorites and comes in. so yes, the, these 2 are new laureates, one, not the top of the list of those who people who watch the nobel peace prize year in the out year out were expecting. as you say, gretta turn berg, the swedish climate change activist, was one of those atlanta taken oscar, the been a russian opposition. politician. she was one as well. then there was the w h o the
12:09 pm
world health organization for its work. over the last year in combating the coven pandemic, that was in now considered to be a foreigner. what we have here are 2 journalists working in different countries, different parts of the world. of course, what they share essentially is working to our highlights injustices around the world and in their particular corners of the world. and i think it shows perhaps what the norwegian panel of the peace prize consider to be one of the big issues of modern times, which is the freedom of the press and the ability of journalistic go about their work on the hinges. how she was saying the brightness and when she was reading out this award, and the, the russian laureate works for the editor in chief of i guess. yet
12:10 pm
a long standing independent newspaper magazine, based in russia, has been under enormous pressure over the years. many of its journalists have been injured jails or even kills like anna polka scouts. i'm the famous russian journalist who was shot dead in the stairwell of her apartment block many years ago . so it just constantly goes to show what kind of things the nor the no norwegian nobel team have been looking at and think are, are the serious issues that need to be highlighted at the moment. and definitely those, the message being sent here, rory in, in giving the prize to 2 journalists at this point in time. right? uh huh. b, r. i are not sure i can hear, i'm sorry, i didn't get that question. could you?
12:11 pm
right, yeah, i'm saying there's definitely a, a very clear message answer being sent here, roaring. can you hear me just of how i'm afraid just of our voices coming in and out. why yes or can hear about every, every other suitable or i will. i'll tell you what roy we'll come back to later then let's move on now and discuss it with kristin. herbal dimer director of the international catalog institute of pace joins us now from barcelona. good. have you with us? first of all, your reaction to this, i guess you could call a bit of a surprise announcement. i'm not sure it's, it's a, it's a, it's a surprise. the names are so highlighting the relevance of freedom of expression in the shrinking a self for critical thinking in many or was among the topics that were on the list. and therefore, i think it's actually very interesting interesting that
12:12 pm
they're the chairman of the committee in announcing the decision highlighted not only the efforts that they've made to defend freedom of expression, but didn't mention sort of the idea that they champion fact based journalism that says something about the concern there is for what is happening not only to freedom of expression, but what is happening within the world of journalism itself, right, with some quarters being accused of leaning more towards a well fake news rather than fact, news driven agendas. exactly. so that whole fake news. ready has become a big topic in any country in the world from time countries to the most developed that it is a topic and therefore of global concern by awarding. ready the eyes
12:13 pm
to the people. i think it sends a number of messages, certainly for the government countries. i'm our work. but i think beyond that as well, or at rest of the glow, there were the relevant pressure of journalism, in fact, that journalists are harassed or killed in many countries in the world. and by doing their work, marissa, from the philippines and from russia, they become, i think champions are global cause it does it all. so there was some criticism leading up to this about the lack of diversity and how most of not all of the recipients, so far, least of, i think the 8 scientific prize is, went to exclusively mail recipients. now this balance it out
12:14 pm
a little bit. does it have been throughout history and may dominate it the other awards, although will say that an award that started in 2 they can for that issue was already given to a woman. i'm or the sequence girl many years or is it? i think there has been a significant effort is asked years to, to have a gender balance and they have it, she, it fully equipped with this with this and an award like this. what does it mean for a journalists ability to be able to continue the sort of struggle which mr. murat, of and miss ross are, are engaged in. in, in the one hand,
12:15 pm
you can obviously see the recognition and the, the support that would come from this price. is there a downside to does it enabled detractors from them? may be powerful or circles of pals and governments to say, well, you're simply a tool of the, of a western institution or a western agenda. and there is say, an obvious risk of these 2 persons virus. more i thought and their colleagues in the philippines, russia and elsewhere, are the target criticism and harassment government off east. this will make them more visible and what would be a like a public decrease with this nomination because they are critical to voices icons, authoritarian government and government will not be happy with the simulations. and
12:16 pm
it was the acute, some of the instruments for an interest, but that i think is common to any human rights defender naming and blaming human rights of users. so that's part of the game i would say, unfortunately, but i think it has many more positives. is of the philippines, for instance, in a very short time frame one. there has been 2 big news effect to what the nobel peace committee designs is. a government that murderous government re wages war against the country's own population. that's the words she used. well, this has been going without their international visibility and now with this award, and also very recently the international criminal court and started official investigation and who was in the philippines,
12:17 pm
the government's responsibility. this will have a big impact in the philippines and the upcoming elections next year. and i would say, and they insist also are young. there are a number of people of journalists to very organ, different difficult conditions, are harassed or get killed in central america, in africa, and many other places in the world. and i think this is a price that it's all of them as well. and in its history, of course, there have been many journalists who have received the nobel peace prize. this isn't the 1st time that we're seeing. a journalists receive the nobel peace prize, which is of, you know, it's a good thing. obviously, as journals have a very happy and excited with that is this time a little bit different, whereas many of the past recipients received the nobel peace prize because of their contribution towards peace. you could, you know, look at a lot of them from the days of, of nesta monitor in 19
12:18 pm
o 722 i called carmano think in a few years ago. and the zack sort of common thread is this one different because now journalists are receiving the nobel peace prize because they've just been able to stand up for journalism for the freedom of expression. freedom of expression. and i would say democracy. the trend in the price you can see has been actively engaged in set them and conflict. and that has often whenever this been a piece, a big piece equipment in the world. and the latest one was one in columbia. there's been this been rewarded with the war and also between attempts and israel palestine. it happens in east timor evans wherever there's been a major conflict or just a 2nd trend as you and bodies. and the nobel peace is very supportive,
12:19 pm
lateral approached local justice and therefore last year we had with food program and in previous years, very often you and different kinds of bodies. and the 3rd big trend is an initiative that support that challenge militarization arms race. and these kinds of issues, which is always a trend right now, there is no, this is right now. it is past years, haven't been in major developments piece piece, negotiations piece meant piece, implementation. fortunately. and then other issues come up. this could have been climate change and this could have been and is actually democracy. the quality of democracy is shrinking in many places in the world. and they were just one of the philippines became a champion and what democracy when they had a non violent, massive peoples,
12:20 pm
how revolution that them started back in 86 and became a world reference of non violent people's struggle. right. and this is now being this trend is being reversed democracies and a threat in the philippines in russia and in any other places, the world. and there, i think the issue of freedom of expression, there are journalist, that's the framework from what we have to analyze this piece fresh. all right, thank you so much. has been wonderful getting your comments on this. thank you. let's begin on its return now to our story, we have been covering the situation in southwest, in pakistan, where families are burying those killed in an earthquake on thursday. rescuers still searching for survivors at least 22 people i confirmed to have been killed. many more a wounded and have been left homeless in boucher stands had nigh the worst hit
