4:07 am
detention is routine asylum procedures aren't properly explained and the rights of refugee children are being ignored and sent to reports from southeast france these commanders say they're just trying to stop illegal immigration. french border police search a train in malta are the first stop from the border with italy migrants try to cross into france on this line every day but few make it the government's crackdown on illegal immigration and police checks authorise pressure on police to turn back migrants says this n.e.p. is leading to rights abuses is a silent the police said there was no one inside here but when we asked to go in we saw a young people lying on the floor there was no interpreter no lawyer given no possibility to file an asylum request last year french officers on this border stop fifty thousand migrants many walked from italy taking dangerous mountain routes like this man who didn't wish to be identified but described being detained by french

a deal by the end of next week a deadline set by her coalition partners from berlin dominic cain has more. angela merkel's plans for the informal e.u. mini summit taking place in brussels on sunday have just got a little bit more difficult because the knowledge that the intaglio prime minister was unhappy with some of the suggested conclusions that may emerge from the full blown summit taking place in brussels at the end of next week next week was so strong that she'll have to call him during a visit that she's making to the middle east over the course of today and tomorrow to reassure him about what would be discussed on sunday and to remove elements that he found were unacceptable because let's remember here he is now in charge of a government in italy that is more euro skeptic intone the other development is another interesting element of the euro skepticism growing in parts of europe that the visa ground group four countries of central eastern europe poland the czech
4:11 am
republic slovakia and hungary all saying they intend to boycott this mini summit taking place on sunday pointers they have not been invited to that means think but what is clear here is this is the sense that the euro skeptic governments are now trying to put the pressure on and get them out and the european union to show how they don't want to fit in with their range plans that angle americal appear to be trying to get too close to an agreement. u.k. says that e.u. citizens who want to stay after effects will be able to apply using a new registration system the government insists it wants to make the process of staying as easy as possible many europeans living in britain are deeply worried about their future explains. that has left italian composer dimitris colorado in a limbo is among three and a half million citizens living working and paying taxes in the u.k.

who will now have to pass government checks in order to be able to remain in britain after it leaves the e.u. . will have to undergo criminal checks. undergo proving that you've been continuously resident here. it will be fine for the majority mother will be lots of cases where we've got lots of look old american fans and i can witness love. lots alongside lots of fear. the british government's promise to allow mostly you citizens to stay in the u.k. providing they've been in the country long enough haven't broken any laws and pay a registration fee the home secretary on thursday promised the process will be simple they will have to release steps to which we need to prove your identity the number two that you live in the u.k. prove that you actually live in the u.k. and number three that you have no serious criminal convictions and if we if you are not going to get is that they have to be
4:13 am
a very good reason why you're not going to get that under the proposal the government says they'll be two types of immigration status settle status for e.u. citizens who've been living in the u.k. for at least five years by december thirty first twenty twenty i'm pretty settled status for those who've been in the u.k. less than five years they'll be able to stay and apply for settled status later. family members dependents and unmarried partners who also be allowed to apply to live in the u.k. after a certain amount of time the government has promised a streamlined low cost digital process there are still concerns for thousands of e.u. nationals that may want to continue living here in the u.k. students for instance who may have decided to spend a year living somewhere else or perhaps self employed people don't have the financial records to prove that they've been living here consistently long enough to get the status necessary and the elderly people that may have been here for many many years who simply don't know that they now need to register there may be
4:14 am
problems for these and others further down the line the recent windrush scandal saw long term u.k. residents from the caribbean wrongly labelled illegal immigrants some were deported despite living in the u.k. for decades the government can't afford to get the registering of three and a half million e.u. citizens wrong in return to reason may want brussels to safeguard the rights of one point two million british citizens living in the e.u. but without a final deal with europe there are no guarantees. al-jazeera london. there are reports of war fighting in the nicaraguan city of must say funerals have been held for three people killed there on choose day and to government protesters have been fighting peace and paramilitary since the city declared that it no longer recognizes for a tea of president daniel ortega. iraq's supreme court has ruled that a manual we can't evolve will cast during the general election last month should take place and certain categories of votes originally deemed invalid must be

4:16 am
market but they also want to insure against is that the stock over high that we've seen in recent years has doesn't come back again the reason why there are no talks or increase in production is to jump on that volatility again the market the consumers everybody enough certainty and sense of security of supply to keep markets in a healthy situation in june twenty fourth teen opec oil was trading at one hundred ten dollars a barrel by january two thousand and sixteen it had dropped to just twenty five dollars a barrel now thanks to opec limiting supply it's recovered to around seventy three dollars a barrel but there is dispute over what the ideal price should be. the saudi crown prince was warmly welcomed in moscow last week the two countries firmly agreed on the need for high oil production however coming into this week's meeting opec
4:17 am
member iran supported by venezuela and iraq was threatening to veto any easing of the production cap and the divisions here at opec are as much of a geo political tensions as they are about the price of oil outside of opec saudi arabia and iran are bitter regional rivals as the impact of u.s. sanctions against iran and the prospect of chinese tariffs on u.s. oil and of course russia intensely dislike seeing america benefits from high oil prices balancing those competing interests looks difficult and opec has seen spits before most recently in twenty eleven this time analysts believe an output increase will avert potential chaos if you depart friday and saturday very with no outward hike on the cards then there is an inherent danger that the discipline might be lost that the saudis might go it alone even if four hundred fifty thousand about it and then that you give the pretext to the russians and the can know no bad guys who've been holding their dispute say well you know what let's let's bump up our

4:21 am
it could be i'm one hundred seventeen and you're in the stream today we'll hear from an artist who's mixing hip hop with the history of indigenous america native american artist frank wall and joins us to share his latest music and if you're new to the concept of indigenous hip hop and have a listen to this. never seen a storm come without a way and it's a lot. of pressure stress that. this is the.
4:22 am
place to go when no one's there to my. camp. the legacy of broken treaties colonialism and native american genocide are constant themes and frank wants music born of the rose by indian reservation in rural south dakota out one uses music to call out historical wrongs and uplift indigenous youth many of whom struggle from the impacts of poverty violence suicide and other intergenerational traumas so joining us now is frank here in the studio welcome to the stream frank hello mike it's an honor to be here it's really good to have you here so you know this past week our team and i have been going through your music
4:23 am
it has been lovely homework to have and we came up with some themes that we thought we found most prevalent in your work and that is history heritage and family that to us is what seems to be the drivers behind your work for you what is it that drives your music i mean i think you guys kind of hit it on the head i try to improve approach my work from an indigenous standpoint and that's not to say i have all the answers like i grew up and i said the colony in my mind was socialized into you know the western way of looking at the world so as i get more in touch with my own culture and my own roots and try to uncover what they took from us i try to bring that out and i work so very much at the core of it is love love for my people for the land for my family love for. everything that we're supposed to live in balance with it's interesting to hear you say that a lot of people commenting on their colonialism and kind of the courage the creative courage in your lyrics specifically john little on twitter pointing out
4:24 am
one song in particular called what makes the red man red saying my favorite line from his music is quote you inherited everything we died for and all we get is a goddamn mascot. since that person brought a song that you know i want to hear your answer on that and what you think of that i want to share our audience share with our audience what it sounds like so have a listen to this on sound cloud sound cloud what meet the red man red. so you sampled disney's song from the animated feature the one nine hundred eighty three animated movie peter pan and turned it on its head so tell us about that so i produced my own music and i did that was the first time i ever actually sample all
4:25 am
vinyl i found a record in children have been to use vinyl so in minneapolis for a dollar and i've always wanted to do something with that song just because disney has a pretty horrible history of stereotyping my people and it's there in the music and so i always look for creative ways to foot things like that on their head like and i just want to point out that song is full of racial slurs for indigenous people but it came off of a children's record and you know so i just by doing that alone it kind of shows you where we're at in this country as far as how we look at indigenous people you have this line in there where you say what made you think the red man was dead or someone paraphrasing you a little bit and i know you have a story where that actually happened to someone you know what is surprised yeah so it was my first week in a so i graduated from columbia college in. chicago i got my bachelor of arts and audio arts and acoustics and the first week i was there i was living in a dorm room in a dorm building in downtown chicago and i got in the elevator in this go about on the elevator with me and she was non-native she commented on my hair she would get
4:26 am
really pretty have you and i was like you know thank you and she didn't know what that meant and so i had to be more general and i was like i'm native american and she looked at me confused and she was like you guys are still alive you know and just think about that we got college educated adults living on stolen colonise land i think we don't even exist. i mean you know people are talking about the reservations people you're saying you know people think we don't even exist anymore so much of your culture sadly for better or worse is out of sight and kind of out of mind a lot of people touching on the online for example we have a man on twitter saying i currently reside in l.a. are obstacles when talking about you know he tweeted a single obstacles you face on the reservation other than deeply entrenched institutional racism imposed on the side of p.t.s.d. he goes on and on and says there's so much hopelessness how do you change that sense of hopelessness into hope in your music or do you i think i think you know i've been thinking about that a lot because i grew up in a place where it was it can get hopeless and i think when you're survivors of a genocide were less than one percent of your people survived and you never been
4:27 am
able to heal there's going to be a lot like you say you know like colonial p.t.s.d. a lot of hopelessness so i think for me my work becomes a tool for me to practice hope is almost a montreaux almost like a daily practice you know you know you've got to keep practicing that hope on a daily basis otherwise it's easy to lose hope in that goal so i think my music gives me the tools to practice it in a day to day basis what drew you to have pop in the first place the storytelling the drums the the truth speaking truth to power you know i think at its core hip-hop was created by a colonized people who were stolen away from their homeland stolen away from their culture and trying to recreate something that was taken from them so i think hip hop at its core is coming from indigenous or. african folks were indigenous people as well we all are colonized people so i think that's why as an indigenous person i resonate with it because it was created by colonized people and it's a strong from indigenous tradition that has roots you know frank for as much as we
4:28 am
all of hip hop and i think we all here do love hip hop but some people don't love hip hop but they still love you i mean the loves days thing on twitter i'm not a fan of hip hop but it's different with his music really great i love it too but i live so far to ever see him alive she goes on then to say when we asked what do you think is different about his music she said good question it might be because he talks about the realities that the government tried so hard to race it's important to keep talking and spread the word to those who do not know and you're doing it extremely well are you conscious of that that you're educating as much as you're entertaining you know in the beginning i wasn't because i was just you know one thing i was taught from elders and i community is that if you know something you do it without being asked and if you if you learn something you repeat it so others can learn it and so i think you know i just was talking about those things because it's my life that history's ingrown ingrained in my life indigenous people our lives are politicized whether we want it to be our not because our reality was influenced by us policy and still is today so i would be lying if i wasn't talking
4:29 am
about my reality and my life you know so it's just it just started happening and then as i started putting out the music i realized there was a need to educate not on not only non-natives well known people because we were cut off from the history as well i didn't know i was a came from a colonized nation until i was in my twenty's you know really it's wild well in the spirit of education frank i know you're going to perform a new song for us it's called my people come from the land so as you get ready i wanted to share this video comment that came from nolan hack talking kind of about what we just spoke of. wally his music speaks to me because he is a compromising and his music is a compromise and he tells the truth his music tells the truth and that i can identify with that as a black man because i look at something like this is america by donald glover and this is the same thing donald comes and goes hey this is what this is what this
4:30 am
country has been doing to us the soul all this is what this country used to do to was right now frank's laying it on a table the same way coming out of the aboriginal coming out with what makes a red man red and say this is what this country has been going to native people one hundred years this is what this country is still to want to. learn from and. people come from the. romney people come from the land on which it's to fight the white and still fight quite. not every monday should indeed be every step closer on dressed in white caps to ship would never said that they don't keep a steep triple up trouble would never reach the council fires are still claim.
4:31 am
it's even money i'm a simple see chunks of hole on the stump you gotta take some on some of the sub judice sad traumas got to be tracked like you see the sound of. grant money system. down they can take you down instead of buying. you system books to capital business they took the debt and me to say keep us out all these they took away with some mix of good. way i would. say. from. which spam come from. just. come from. feel. free to. read the. shit sad. cause. a quote
4:32 am
shit tom. ford. coach. told me. i can five hundred years to. help. him must own the. bar sports. cars. got a jump shot the. first. cars just. don't. win with trucks. on the first of the took the first thirty should. stand. forty one.
4:33 am
this is a. holy. family history. we still. said please. pray. for my grandparents place to stop the spread. of stopping these. it's like i would know where. the ball was but what world. come from. and so fight the fight fight fight.
4:34 am
which. would change. to a college town. the. following day. so so powerful you are watching this stream with the hip hop indigenous artists wall and that was one of his latest songs that previewing here on the stream for the very first time so we're privileged our followers online know that we're privileged here this is one person on twitter who says so happy to be watching this live stream bring wall and someone else on you tube watching live says i love this the history of native americans is so important and needs to be taught and retain that's us on facebook and it's interesting what she says the history needs to be
4:35 am
taught it needs to be retained because you do your line of the song it's my people come from the land and you talk about the historical tragedies of the white man but they're still ongoing to day do you think enough people understand. honestly i think and i think you know people's reactions to what's happening right now at the border is a great example of that if you understood this history from one of their colonial nations you understand this history has this country has a deep history of separating indigenous children from their parents i mean the same thing happened in my great grandparents they were snatched up and taken to boarding school and so you know what's happening today is just a continuation of one of the founding fathers this country was built on just just a policy that says because i know some people in our audience may not be familiar with boarding schools although some might think that sounds like a good thing but these were indoctrination. boarding schools in this country and this happened to my great grandparents they came into our homes under you know
4:36 am
under orders of the u.s. government's national ball of our children from the us up to canada and. they took my great grandparents from home and i don't know what happened to them but i know that they never spoke our language again and never passed on any of our culture after that so i can't imagine you what you would have to do to a small child to make them stop speaking their language and i didn't even know my great grandparents were fluent in our language until they were. after they were passed on and i was in my twenty's because they kept it that much of a secret they felt that being native was something to be ashamed of because these schools top all of our ancestors that in this country is built on the dehumanization of indigenous people you know in that indian boarding schools are one of those tactics that used you know when you talk about the dehumanization whether it's native americans and you know language and land in these symbols your message is obviously resonating thinks twitter twitter saying is such an extraordinary musician talking about you of course his lyrics have the strength to render the overarching american culture speechless however i think creating music
4:37 am
by native people for native people and presenting a positive native figure is more important to him and his music you smile as i kind of finish that tweet. i think is cool whatever my fans kind of you know because. the people who follow my work are usually hardcore fans because i don't you know there's not a lot of it's hard being an indigenous person and indigenous artists speaking about these things trying to make it in an entertainment system built in a set or colony built on the dehumanization of the people you know and be like saying well as a palestinian rapper talking about israel going to make it in an israeli record label are they going to get promoted in israel not really you know in the same thing with us here it's hard to break through to the popular american culture as an indigenous artists speaking on these sorts of things so i smile because you know the people that follow me get in and i just smile because you know she had it right and they were going to follow him from all over the world because you brought up
4:38 am
palestine i just quickly want to bring their voice into this conversation because i know you recently took a trip there we also have palestinian fan on twitter saying i feel like parts of his lyrics can also be applied to the palestinian struggle people as someone who grew up in a country where i always got silenced when i talked about what horrors israel put palestinians through and you know she goes on on and. she really says that stood out to her right here she says to know someone with a voice as powerful as this is addressing those same problems in the hardships and maybe trying bridges to her experience is really powerful to her what was that trip like to that trip was life changing it was a year ago i spent eleven days i want with a group called dream defenders i was with a delegation of artist and i was very grateful i was the only indigenous person but you know i was aware that their colonialism was happening out there but when i was actually in palestine for eleven days it was very i would say spiritually triggering because i saw almost sometimes almost like line for a line what happened to my ancestors from like open air prison systems our
4:39 am
reservations basically to setting the government setting up laws to make our lives a living hell in me because one of these and so you know i'm definitely going to write a song for palestine one day and the thing that just keeps coming to my head was i looked in the eyes of palestine and i saw my own reflection you know i saw the reflection of my people and what we went through and it really shook me to my core in a way i haven't yet found the words to describe but i know it's going to come out in the music soon i love what you're saying there and it it explains why you've been called this take a look at my screen here pink wants to bridge is the sound of an indigenous generation rising frank warren has been making moves he's built a large and devoted audience that and he's been dubbed the bob marley. for the way that he envisioned its music as a force for love struggle healing and social change so that's one person's perspective there but i like that they're talking about the things that are in your music the love the struggle the healing in the social change i read an interview
4:40 am
that you were about twenty one when you started this journey came into music and you did it because you said it was an act of survival so that seems to resonate throughout your lyrics talk to us about that feeling that music is your means of survival yeah well you know growing up in the place where i grew up on the rosewood reservation. it was an easy place to grow up it's one of the poorest counties in this country i was raised by a single mom and you know there are a lot of beautiful things that our culture and you know we're reviving our language and there's a lot of things that home i can't get anywhere else in the world because of colonialism and genocide there's a lot of things that can actually kill me too so you know whenever i'm talking about. music as an act of survival it started when i was seven i started playing piano when i was seventeen and i've struggled with anxiety depression and suicide for most of my life and i think a lot of native people feel the same way even if or not aware of it or don't talk about it and music at
4:41 am
a certain point my life was the only thing that made me feel like i wanted to be alive you know so i think my spirit was just trying to trying to keep me alive and trying to keep me going to music was one of those things like you know people ask me why and i say it's like an itch i have to scratch i was born to make music i was born to do this i was born to see what you've just seen me do and my life would be a waste if i were fulfilling my purpose you know that kind of goes back to that teaching i said if you know something you do it without being asked and i know i'm born to make music and it took me a while to realize that i can do that because i didn't believe in myself i didn't have the tools i didn't have the resources and it was kind of like just pouring myself into the work out of survival led me to where i'm mad and then people started following it before i knew i had a career going and it seems like frank more people are following you hendrik on you tube who's watching live said yes i am sold this is great thank you so much but we also have a more substantive comment from meghan thing frank you're an extremely proud lakota man have you ever personally struggled with american culture telling you to feel self-hatred or even ashamed of your culture i mean i don't think like explicitly no
4:42 am
one's ever told me that but all you've got to do is look at the media and how i like the type of media i grew up with of portraying native people it was things like disney's peter pan you know it was whenever i saw it on the news it was really only poverty porn you know they were only come in and cherry pick the negative stories and never talk about the history of why things are the way they are on a reservation. and never show the hopeful side it was just become this or native americans or lazy or alcoholic or drug addicts you know we're deadbeat dads all these statistics so i think you know looking at looking at the way the media has treated my people looking at historically the way this country and americans of treated my people for over five hundred years they've been telling as a show shame about who you are and to be native actually. you know frank you mentioned. your older generations. and i'll give our viewers a little bit of a fun fact trivia for this next album that's coming out he actually had to learn the language and used. to help you along with him right so i'm not fluent so i

4:56 am
stand to the israeli forces before to desperate battle to stop the syrian thrust which threatened to reach right to the heart of israel. in the first five days of warhead on the golan israeli losses alone amounted to two hundred fifty tanks and hundreds of men. it was and vicious for the syrians to think that they could penetrate significantly into the israeli rare over the course of twenty four hours but it was not wholly under realistic how the israelis not being able to respond flexibly it is entirely possible about a syrian exploitation force could have had a trade into northern israel with an attack. but it was not to be and less than twenty four hours israel had mobilized to. divisions which soon
4:57 am
turned the syrian advance into retreat. on the tenth of october and after suffering huge losses and tanks the syrians withdrew from the golan heights. back behind the one nine hundred sixty seven cease fire line the same place they had started their assault five days earlier. now the israelis faced a crucial choice what should be their next move. the decision taken in tel aviv was typically bold to go on the attack to push on into syria itself. to make it go the other side and the game of fire. and we are going to read. and out. and out right. and

5:00 am
a massive counterattack the first division started to retreat before the israeli army. when it did it had almost two hundred fifty tanks and the infantry brigades behind it they started to retreat to this resulted in the advance of the israeli army i remember that day the president issued an order dismissing the commander of that division and appointing another in his place. stories emerged that assad's punishment for his commanders went beyond mere dismissal. and as. i remember yes more than one officer was arrested and it said that some of them were executed. there was one senior commander that president assad summoned and asked him to account for himself and that the commander then shot himself in front of the president that. assad's rage was.
