11:04 pm
a perceived or proposed rather peace plan for the israelis and the palestinians now we say likely no details been given as to what this peace plan might include other than donald trump saying it's the deal of the century and that's what they've been working on the reason for these meetings with arab allies is to likely try to persuade the arab allies to buy into this peace plan and then present it to the israelis who also the u.s. wants to get a buy in from as well and then present it to the world what's missing from all of this is the palestinians and palestinians say that the u.s. isn't an honest broker anymore that it's on the side of the israelis because it recognizes jerusalem as the capital of israel so the palestinians on involved in any way shape or form with this peace plan so what does that mean well it means the likelihood of the peace plan going through is quite slim considering the palestinians aren't involved but let's see what happens when they try and present
11:05 pm
the u.s. try to present the peace plan to the world what sort of reaction they'll get and this is really what we're hearing is this being discussed when is the right time to reveal this so-called deal of the century this proposed peace plan for israel and palestine. peace talks between south sudan's government and opposition have broken down following two days of closed door meetings in ethiopia need a tz have been set for more talks but the differences between the warring sides suggest a deal will be difficult to achieve himmel don't report. it was their first meeting in nearly two years when president salva kiir and opposition leader rick machar last met in south sudan's capital juba the talks ended in failure and renewed fighting between the sides this meeting a neutral ground offered hope of a breakthrough in the conflict but it broke up without any agreement after two days . or how. this tragic

11:07 pm

11:23 pm
the stream frank hello monica 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 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
11:24 pm
creative courage in your lyrics specifically john little on twitter pointing out one song in particular called what makes the red man red saying my favorite line from his music is you inherited everything we died for and all we got is a damn mascot. since that person brought out 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 what meet the red man red. so you sampled disney's song from the animated feature the one thousand fifty three animated movie peter pan and turns it on its head so tell us about that so i
11:25 pm
produced my own music and i did that was the first time i ever actually sample all vinyl i found a record in children have been in use vinyl sold 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. i'm 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 and treat indigenous people you have this line in there where you say what made you think the red man was dead or something paraphrasing a little bit and i know you have a story where that actually happened to someone you know what is surprised yes 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 in acoustics and the first week i was there i was living in a dorm room in
11:26 pm
a dorm building in downtown chicago and i got in the elevator in this go out on the elevator with me and she was non-native she commented on my hair she didn't get 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 a 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 on line for example we have a man on twitter saying i currently reside in l.a. are obstacles when talking about you know you to do 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
11:27 pm
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 able to heal there's going to be a lot like you said 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 at 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. i think my music gives me the tool to practice it in a day to day basis what drew you to have pop in the first place the storytelling the drums 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 roots you know african folks who are 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
11:28 pm
it's drawing from indigenous tradition that it's roots you know frank for as much as we 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 ask 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 histories and ingrained in my life indigenous people our lives
11:29 pm
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 about my reality in 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-native well known people because we were cut off from the history as well i didn't know i was 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. right wall and his music speak to me because he is a compromising and his music is the 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
11:30 pm
this is the same thing donald comes and goes hey this is what this is what this country's been doing to us the soul wall this is what this country is the tool to is right now franks laying it on the table the same way coming out of aboriginal coming out with well makes a red man red as saying hey this is what this country has been doing to native people one hundred years this is what this country is still doing to move. on from that and. come from the. romney people come from the land on which to fight the white and still fight. for still not every monday should indeed be every step closer rests with white devils
11:31 pm
to never said that they might keep a scheme to triple up trouble would reach to the council fires are still claim that. the money i must still see chunks. hold on the stump you gotta take some on. some of the subjects of sad traumas gonna be tracked like you see santa and not just such a rent money system thing down from beat down they can't take it down instead of buying. the system books to capital business they took the band meter stick with alcohol did they took away with some bits of code. way i would. work on acela. from. which spam must come from and. just. come from. feel. free to. be the
11:32 pm
bad. shit sat on. a coach shit tom. foley. which. i can latch on to is to. help me. you must. bar sports. cars. got a jump shot the. first. cars to speak. with truck. stop on the first group the took the first thirty should.

11:34 pm
a. color. change. these. clothes on the. following day q. b. 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
11:35 pm
americans is so important and needs to be taught and retain that's ass on facebook and it's interesting what she says the history needs to be taught it needs to be retained because you do your line of the song is my people come from the land and you talk about. 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 is 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 is 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
11:36 pm
this happened to my great grandparents that came into our homes under you know under orders of the u.s. government's gnash up all 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. 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 a it 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 and these symbols your message is obviously resonating picture
11:37 pm
the 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 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 that 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 colony built on the dehumanization of you people you know it be like saying well as a palestinian rapper talking about israel going to make in an israeli record label are they going to get promoted in israel not really you know in the same thing with those 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
11:38 pm
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 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 silence 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 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
11:39 pm
triggering because i saw almost sometimes almost like a line for a line what happened to my ancestors from like open air prison systems our 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. 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 one 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 there but
11:40 pm
i'd 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 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 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 and 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 our 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 to 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 struggled with anxiety depression and suicide for most
11:41 pm
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 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 weren't 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 at and then people started following it before i knew i had a career going and it seems like frank more people are following you henrik 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 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 and you know it was whenever i saw it on the news it was really only poverty porn you know they would only come in and cherry pick the negative stories and never talk about the history of life things are the way they are on a reservation. and never show the hopeful side it was just become this all native americans are lazy or alcoholic or drug addicts you know we're all the statistics so i think you know looking looking at the way the media has treated my people looking at historically the way this country and americans have treated my people for over five hundred years they've been telling as a show shame about who we are and to be native actually. you know you mentioned. your older generations. and i'll give our viewers a little bit of

11:50 pm
facebook. dot com thanks for joining us well the trumpet ministration says hundreds of migrant children who were separated from their parents at the us mexico border since may have been reunited with their family while that may raise hope for other children who are in u.s. custody some politicians are now questioning ministrations plans so how's the intensity set up inside a military bases so this year more than. until one thousand migrant children have made the dangerous journey across the mexican border by themselves that's according to u.s. customs and border patrol the pentagon says it's developing plans to temporarily house them in several southern states alan fischer joining us from just outside the white house and before we get into the details allan trump has just spoken out on twitter what do you have to say. well he says that if republicans are trying to put
11:51 pm
together an immigration bill in the house at the moment they should just not bother know we know that there was a plan and it was a fairly conservative plan to reform immigration to come forward an immigration bill on thursday didn't get too much support so they were putting together a compromise bill which initially we thought would be voted on at some point on friday it's now been postponed to next week that was so that they could build some sort of consensus around but donald trump says the just shouldn't bother know that could just pull the rug from under this idea because there may well be too many members of the house who don't want to go up against the president who don't think there's any point he said they should wait till after the midterms the midterm elections where they'll be house and senate seats up for grabs in november he believes that there will be what he calls a red wave which means big wins for republicans and he said at that point then they can get the immigration bill that they want now the problem is he's been blaming democrats for not being able to get immigration through the house he said the need
11:52 pm
to come onboard but what we've seen over the last twenty four forty eight hours is republicans themselves can't agree on what the best way forward is and certainly democrats are mindful are ready to help a president who they believe has created this immigration problem for himself because of his policy on the border of splitting children away from the parents but also dachau remember that the dreamers the deferred action on childhood admissions children who were brought here by their parents when their parents came into the country illegally and have lived here with a lot of benefits and he said that program was simply ending because they always renewed their visas to stay and he ended that program a few months ago so this is all they see as far as democrats are concerned all of donald trump's making and they are not minded to help him out of this whole. well even though trump did sign that executive order alan to end the separation what do we know is happening to the families who have already been separated. well they say
11:53 pm
that they're trying to work through the process of reuniting these families and as you said they think the reunited some five hundred children with their parents but that still leaves an awful lot of people who haven't been reunited so what are the u.s. government doing or donald trump when he's saying that the executive order created a bit of confusion because there are no people in the border who are no longer detaining families who are are detaining families but they're waiting to find out what the courts say and the justice department has been told to go to court in california and challenge what is known as the florida's settlement no you hear a lot about that over the next few days this is essentially court precedent when there was a court case and a judge decided that children could not be detained for more than twenty days and they had to be detained in facilities that went difficult for them went onerous on them when a real problem for them and so no donald trump has got to abide by that so children
11:54 pm
can't be kept with their parents in these facilities for any longer than twenty days he said to the justice department going get that change going get that extended the difficulty is got is it's going to a court in california it's going to a court that already decided that twenty days was sufficient so the chances of the court's giving him that extension are slim and so there is still a lot of confusion about exactly what this executive order will actually produce but here is the thing to remember this never needed an executive order this was a policy that was put in place by the justice department and could have been sorted by making a phone call donald trump signed the executive order to make it look as if it was doing something what it's done is create problems on the border with people who actually have to work through this process ok alan fischer thanks for that update from washington d.c. now a photograph of a four year old girl from honduras crying as her mother was searched by immigration agents along the us mexico border has become
11:55 pm
a defining image of the. trump administration's so-called zero tolerance approach to migration so while immigration officials say this young girl right there there she is her and her mother remain together and in their custody the fear captured in the girl's face has resonated with millions of americans and the publications they read including as you can see the latest edition of time magazine well john moore is the photographer who took that now famous picture of the honduran toddler at the border he's a special correspondent and senior staff reporter with getty images he's joining us from new york to discuss this image and much more thanks very much for your time john morris so you have said that this picture is important but what goes through your mind now when you see that this picture this moment that you captured has really gone viral and become as we're saying it defining moment of what's happened over the past week or so. well for me this image was sad for me to take in the moment and i think it's come to define in some
11:56 pm
ways the zero tolerance policies. i was you know very emotionally impacted at the moment just because i'm a father myself and to see a little child in distress of courses is hard for any parent to see she was there while her mother was searched and then they were taken away together i never knew what happened with them immediately afterwards and and if they're together that sounds very good to me it's a relief and i'm very happy to hear it as it turns out of course they're still in detention and many families remain in detention while their asylum processes are going through the courts we now do know john moore that this is according to ice and the little girl's father in fact who said that she has not been separated from her mother but what's happened as well is that some conservative media over in the
11:57 pm
u.s. has really jumped on this story some even calling this fake news what do you think when you hear that well in the caption of the picture i say that that they were there together while her mother was being searched and that they went off together and that i didn't know what happened to them afterwards we know that in the processing center where they were sent some children many children and their parents were separated if she was not a separate separated from her mother i think that's fantastic it makes me very happy. talk us through the circumstances that led you to taking this picture and what was going on through your mind as you witnessed this. i had been photographing the u.s. border patrol all afternoon and evening while they were pursuing some immigrants through sugarcane fields and detaining people and also while they were taking into custody many families who were coming across as asylum seekers across the rio
11:58 pm
grande river from mexico into texas and so i had been with the border patrol for many hours when the scene developed a group of women and children about twenty were taken into custody after crossing the river and they turned in their personal effects belts jewelry watches backpacks and then one by one they were searched before being transported to a processing center and so i had seen the mother holding her little girl i talked with her very briefly she said she was from honduras and that she and her two year old daughter had been travelling for a month and i continued taking some pictures and when it came the moment when the officer asked her to set down her child she started crying immediately she was on the ground for a little time but it was you know that when you hear the sobs of a child you have to feel. glad that this photograph has engendered awareness of the
11:59 pm
family separations issue and the zero poller an zero tolerance policy specifically and if it's created compassion if it's made people feel then perhaps we can have a more compassionate solutions to to big issues like undocumented immigration all right john moore relieve it there we thank you very much for joining us on al-jazeera and speaking to us thank you. now people are a huge pile of those have been actively taking a rule and sarah hire us is yours to tell us about the conversation that's going on online sarah yeah it is but it's also not just online i mean plenty of people have taken matters into their hands by protesting against the trump's administration's immigration policies and that's being reflected of course online but in new york people were protesting inside and outside a u.s. immigration and custom of enforcements facility and portland in the se of oregon people have been gathering in immigration building there as well now many have set up tents accounts outside the zion coops about fifty tents has
