11:34 am
outlets is now on the company's case. you're at say, alarm phone, the hotline in the mediterranean, that refugees are using to get their stories out. and just scroll, you scroll, we all scroll. what's it going to take to get us off our phone? on paper, it looked like a routine drug bust, a group of 20 somethings, partying on a cruise ship off the coast of ma'am, by charged with possession and trafficking. it was anything but routine among those arrested was audience con, the son of one of india's and the world's biggest movie stars. shuttle con, the circumstances suggest this case was never just about the sun or the narcotics allegedly involved. the authorities appear to be going after his father, who was muslim and belongs to a film industry bollywood who secular and liberal output conflicts with the ruling
11:35 am
b, j. p. parties, hindu nationalist, ideology, known as hindus, fuck aware of the film industry sway on the masses. some say that the government has taken a 2 track approach on one hand prime minister neurons ramadi, makes nice with some of bollywood biggest stars on the other. his government's anti drug squads target the film industry, sending a message. our starting point this week is one by a drug bust, a legend on a cruise ship off the coast of moon, by among the 8 young people taken into custody. audion con, the son of one of india's and the world's biggest movie star, shot up connie, who happens to be a most at nancy and eat up the lawn care. but duncan, on me is booted drugs. it gives me a body, but it is a salacious story, custom made for indian news channels that are selves, addicted to bombing for labeled guides as dynamic proposal diag off and the
11:36 am
celebrity driven stories. it provides that dr. reeves, the details are merck and there's a larger pattern and playing the indian authorities are targeting balling. and what the film industry has come to represent these threats, didn't johnson but gaze almost make it seem like, you know, a 3 not in rich. one new episode is unfolding every single day. one finds that there is more transparency in the way that case is being factor. that is why one is wondering whether that is more to it than meets the eye. many commentators of argued that it's shadow con, who's the target of this case. but i would say that it's actually the hindi film industry or bollywood that has been targeted over the last several years by b j. p. politicians and they're allied in the nationalist groups. so what i think the i and con case represents is a much broader assault on popular culture in india, ah,
11:37 am
the drug bust would not have made news. if the accused did not have a famous font. shutter con is a muslim megastar, who calls himself an indian patron in 2010. he made a movie on the demonize ation of muslims delivering a line that stuck with audiences in india and beyond. my name is kahn. i'm not a terrorist. con is married to a hint and is one of the faces of an industry that celebrates and exports. stories of secularism and liberalism, and implicit rejection of the ruling b, j. p. parties. hindu nationalist ideology, charter con, represents an older ideal of india as a secular, multi ethnic and pluralist nation. he's a muslim who grew up in delhi and really modest economic circumstances. he goes to bombay to make his mark in the entertainment industry and succeeds wildly. and i
11:38 am
think the very existence of a successful, popular, well respected muslim man challenges or threatens the hindu nationalist ideologies that have been prevailing over the last several years, which are trying to portray muslims as the ultimate other outsider or villain. i don't want to believe that that is why he's being targeted, but it is a rising sentiment of his lama phobia in the country and it is possible shuttle con, what he says travels all over the world. it is hard all over the world is given the option of controlling that as you me, anybody would want to. i don't know why people are focusing only on this part in this government. since i was born in this country, i have seen every single government has intimidated anybody was against them since independence in india, politics and body would have had a very strange relationship. politicians have used our film start our during
11:39 am
elections to get votes in return while you start pick fevers from politicians dirty game, you know, and everybody is part of it. shattered con is far from the only bollywood figure caught up in an anti drugs crackdown, conducted by the narcotics control board. the n c v. he's just the most famous name on a list that over the last few years has grown to include multiple actors, writers and directors. not all of them muslim. in fact, most of those arrested are hindered. the 1st big drug related keith happened last year when an actor called everybody was arrested and he spent time in prison. and then there were people also called in for questioning by the n, c. b for drug related matters. the indifferent but actually is the country's biggest soft power in terms of dissemination of ideas and thoughts and messages. it, to me feels like an attempt to gain more power. there were other actors like shut
11:40 am
down a pool, thought id con, and this is what started the pick up on the call and also called in for questioning . 8 drop entities from the body would, are very much part of a massive drug content. that's the bottom night bollywood was being really fight left right and center as though it was some hot bed of all kinds of crimes and a place which was hiding all kinds of criminals. when the wrench remote is b, j. p 1st came to power in 2014. the party was more focused on the news landscape than the film industry. india has more than 424 hour television news. the vast majority of them are now securely in the governance camp. some for ideological
11:41 am
reasons, others for commercial one or just to avoid angering the authorities in new delhi in 2019 when running for reelection. mowdy sent out this selfie with a group of actors, like many prime ministers before him. he was trying to cozy up to film celebrities and there are huge followings of potential voters. but the b, j, p, 's, pro hindu conservative polar, are not an easy sell involved with secular liberal reputation. those policies are far more popular with india news channels, which once again have the government back the dock and rotting underbelly of the bollywood elite is falling apart and i can tell you it stinks. if you take out the media offered several media doesn't highlight this, then nobody cares. if both it young boys and girls were caught minus i didn't con, nobody would have kid, non media sensationalized it,
11:42 am
it. and i want to talk while you were to get your nickel up a set of mess with, but i started so much the indian delusion. news media is our embarrassment. one humanity, the biggest destructive force today is indian television, news, media, this cream and shout and destroy lives. this dis, they have made it so big that i'm sure that even judges must be thinking in their mind. if i take this decision, what will happen if i take that decision? what's gonna happen? let's call out clean up and boy got the bollywood bird. what do you say? why don't you look at how media has over the past few years been completely compromised? i see paddlers because media and cinema i to very strong mediums, you know, one is bringing used to you are that escaping to your fantasy? sometimes when it comes to public figures, what doesn't get said is as a revealing,
11:43 am
as what does indian actors have among the biggest social media followings on the planet numbers that routinely run into the 10s of millions. but if shuttle con went online, searching for messages of support from within his own industry, he would find very few people willing to back, at least publicly, that silence tells its own story about the hazards of free speech in the range remedies. indeed, many indians criticized bollywood celebrities for not being as politically outspoken as their hollywood counterparts. after the election of donald trump. many people were paring, how local hollywood stars were in there, criticism of champ, as compared to how bollywood stars can never be as outspoken. but i think there's real consequences for being outspoken in india, celebrities could get told incessantly, their movies can be boycotted, and finally they or their families could be in physical danger. even if political
11:44 am
powers or government agencies don't come to you, there's also targeted online attacks twitter attack instagram attacks that lead to a lot of work. not everybody wants to be that prey. majority of them are not speaking. what that is harbinger of when find out. it just feels like another nail in the coffin. free speech. hardly a week goes by. it seems without facebook turning up in your news feeds for all the wrong reasons. this time, a consortium of news outlets has been publishing stories about the company. nick moore had been following these stories. nick beyond what we looked at just a few weeks ago that whistleblower story wise. facebook back that was black, former facebook employee, frances, how going initially took history to the wall street journal wish lead thousands of internal documents to the paper. how going is now made those documents available to
11:45 am
a consortium of more than a dozen news outlets including the new york times and washington post in the us and european outlets like lamond in france and torch. as i turn in germany and what kind of stories are we seeing as a result? well, much more detail, pretty damning detail that facebook is well aware of its problems with misinformation and hate speech in the us, but even more so outside of the us and non english speaking countries and it's doing very little to prevent it. going back to india in 2001, 900 just before the general election. the documents show that facebook employees set up a dummy account to test user experience that that account was quickly flooded with no competing, quickly flooded with pro moody propaganda and anti muslim hate speech. as you know, richard india is seeing an alarming rise in islamic phobic attacks in ethiopia. employees repeatedly warned that facebook was failing to curve the spread of post
11:46 am
inciting, communal violence in that country. if you happy and assets on the brink of civil war. and despite all of that, the consortium is also revealed to facebook dedicated 84 percent of its efforts to combat misinformation, to the us market alone. that just leaves 16 percent to the rest of the world. and the u. s. market only makes up 10 percent of facebook's business. how was facebook responded to these stories because they had to know that they were coming. they did the actually tweeted before the newspapers released their investigations and they said that many of these dr. and so being mischaracterized and that it's all part of a gotcha campaign that's on the back of news that front is how going is getting a lot of backing from some heavy hitters, including appear on the other founder of e bay is well known an outspoken critic of the expanding powers of big tech. so yes, there are elements of a gotcha campaign, but that does not mean that the consortium hasn't exposed bad practices, more bad practices at facebook. okay, thanks. cast your mind back to 2015. the height of europe's refugee in flux,
11:47 am
when more than a 1000000 migrants tried to reach the continent by c, the global news media were positioned around the mediterranean filing stories from various borders, sometimes from boats. when the numbers dropped, most of the journalists moved on. the story then faded from view, even though tens of thousands attempted that same trip in 2020, and more than a 1000 of them died try one n g o that refuses to let this story go, is alarm for the organization was set up back in 2014, as an emergency hotline, staffed by volunteers to aid refugees in distress, not by sending boats, but by reporting on the situation at sea, by pressuring the relevant authorities to come to the rescue. but some of the governments that alarm phone is dealing with overseas, the border control forces that can be part of the problem. the listening posts
11:48 am
joanna, who's now on alarm phone and it's efforts to shine a light on what is still happening on europe. supporters i don't know if this is a long phone. yes, hold, hold on, hold your. let's see. you're in trouble. can you hear me? ok, good. sympathetic. on the other line. coming one who weighs picks up the phone. 247 . you are you are. okay. i'm good. i need to come, come down, come up. okay, okay. i'm going to need your position can, can you get me your gps position? an emergency hotline that doesn't just offer a lifeline, but the documents the most like both. the reality is what happens at the world of destiny as the clock of your engine stop. okay, and then there's water coming. me,
11:49 am
people are being left being left to drown in the mediterranean because of the difference with the european authorities being a hotline and an extra actor in the mediterranean, on people side, you're doing something that's practically useful to people. one of the functions of the long time is precisely, sir, have a vision of the world where black lives matter where everybody counts where what's happening in the middle right is not invisible. it's very difficult indeed to report from, from the theme is not only that terran and geography that makes it hard. but increasingly, sol states themselves for trying to obstruct such investigations. and that's why is the role of, and also for our, for, and others. it's crucial. they have a crucial role to play, to tell the story of refugees and help establish patterns help. some is what is going on. very often, the only way the only ice over the meter and the gmc what really goes on it
11:50 am
see is something, some european governments want to stay at the influx in 2015 of more than a 1000000 migrants mark the height of europe's refugee crisis. it affected politics and fan populace movements across the europe union. tougher often left humane border policies where the result, their supporters argue that those policies of work sent a message. the number of attempt at crossings is dropped by about 90 percent of the last 5 years. still around 90000 people tried it. in 2020 gree which has borne the brunt of the migrant crisis, has taken a particularly uncompromising stones on refugee prime minister carry smith's attacking and his right wing new democracy party came to power in 2019. and jose media and human rights organizations have since accused the greek coast guard . packing, migraine,
11:51 am
pushing their boats and denise back up to speed. that practice is called pushback. and under international loop, it's illegal. the when we read the fact with the greek minister of migration, he dodged the question and tried to turn our attention on to neighboring turkey instead known as we b q is the 30 coast guard that needs to prevent people leaving turkey oil, reaching the greek territory waters and let's ought to be clear with something else . turkey, he's a safe country and people fling that he's not fling awards on. and therefore, he's not be an excuse to allow people to go into and see where to being use. but even by people with no experience, etc. and this people sometimes with the support of the 30 cause, got and up crossing legally and some of them. unfortunately, she loss of life in the origin. the minister of migration avoided the issue of pushback and his government's involvement in it,
11:52 am
which is where alarm phone comes in. what can you see? you can see the show. yeah. yeah. you really don't really need to let you write that information, volunteers like jacob burkes and connect over the phone to news outlet that no longer devote the resources to the refugees. stories they want. how many are on the bike? okay, 23. how many women? 12, are there any children? some major media players have from reliant, at least partly on alarm phone for their own reporting. outlets like the new york times in germany is there speak. over the past months, we have published a series of very well documented reports concerning push backs and violence and violations of human rights. i believe very little of this, or maybe none of this would be possible to document to produce if it weren't for
11:53 am
organizations including alarm phone, their role is to collect all evidence and testimonies from, from my vince. our role as media gatekeepers is to collaborate with them, establish the veracity of what they say, and then publish the documentation of necessity when you 3 people on the move with people, that of course, you documented coffee. you write that tragedy of some if the bare minimum that you can take, why do we can document all this information so that when this race a system is over? no one can say we didn't know what kind of work these activists are doing, has landed them in trouble with the law. this past june, the greek police launched a criminal investigation into alarm found and several other n g o s. organizations like jazz or an a gym boat reports the charges,
11:54 am
espionage revealing state secrets, joining criminal organizations and facilitating the illegal entry of migrants into europe. the prosecution is not holding back, it tapped the 8 workers phones, put them under surveillance, and it even went as far as recruiting undercover migrants, putting them back on boats bound for greece, who in an effort to prove the n g o z involvement, and crimes, etc. to date, not a single person has been called in for questioning. and the evidence just doesn't seem to stack up. we asked notice meet iraqi in this case against the angie o's is more about silencing those exposing government wrongdoing than it is about fighting crime. the government doesn't press charges, it is the judicial and the police that investigate crimes were not against them. endures the violence. here are the smugglers and in one corporate him with a smuggler. i haven't named specifically, emmy endures. but there was
11:55 am
a number of testimonies from asylum seekers that themselves identified the names of organizations that either helped them to fly to turkey or would help them in the journey from the 36 course to good. this is deemed as a crime and is the police and the court that will decide i find it very, very, very hard to remain. this will ever end up in a given sentence based at least on what i have seen in the police file. but i don't think the greek government or authorities pappas is a conviction down the road. it is to say that people who are getting our way this, people need to learn the lesson to learn their place. and also to preemptively discredit their reporting. because any future reporting is based on alarm phone data,
11:56 am
watch easier for the government to dismiss as propaganda by n g o. we're already under investigation. when you are on the field and reporting this kind of violence abuses, there's always going to be pressure abuses. we never want to be under scrutiny. there is no doubt that allegations of smuggling must be investigated thoroughly. but one must make a distinction between those who profit for misery and those for there to help states have a duty to protect human rights defenders and not prosecute them. i'm going to call the green coast guard and hopefully they can. they're gonna come according to alarm from the real crime, aren't the ones the greek authorities are investigating. it's the ones, the state is committing frankie. i will try to buy and keep, keep everybody come, keep come. ok. despite the greek government attempt to intimidate and learn phone is still there at the receiving end of phone calls that maybe the start of refugees,
11:57 am
new life, or the last school day ever make. so that no one journalist and politicians included can ever say we did not know of it. i'll call you at 10 minutes. okay, thank you. but and finally, for all the scholars out there, and there are billions of you constantly scrolling on your phone, whether you're walking down the street, taking a bath or trying to fall asleep. here's a viral video by mac, fly, and carlindo, a couple of french internet personalities, a reminder of just how dependent people have become on their fonts. mclaren, carly, those videos are so popular in france that earlier this year president emanuel mac, ron challenge, the pair to produce something about cove and safety guidelines. it got more than $15000000.00 views. there are just scroll. video was at 1500000 views. strollers included and counting was the next time here at the listen post.

lead us from the world's biggest economies arriving here in rome to discuss the deteriorating economic situation in afghanistan. but all lies will also be able to g twenty's responses to the climate emergency because they've probably to way to prioritize the planets health over g d. p. special coverage on al jazeera to know where the fires are and where they are going. greeks look to the skies in a worrying sign, helicopters have been getting closer to major towns and cities. this one is just a rough, didn't become much bigger than if you can see by the trade trucks, the fires, climbing up the hill just behind us on the ground. this is what the business of fighting fires looks like. holding back,
12:00 pm
the inevitability of mother nature's fury is dangerous and exhausting work. we're down to give. what they're better with. the hope is the fire will stop when it runs out of fuel. but for the moment, the fuel is everything in sight. lou, climate change and the economic recovery from the current of are so high on the agenda with the g 20 liter summit getting underway in ryan. ah, hello there, i'm still here. tell you this is out of their life and also coming up us drug regulations, authorize a lower dose, kind of 19 vaccine for children, aged between 5 and 11. saudi arabia expels the lebanese ambassador ex, the kingdoms response to being accused of aggression in the yemen war.
