11:13 pm
a crisis that began long before they were imposed a year ago. what is happening is of such gravity that it looks as though we were going through a terrible war like syria except there is no war and it's the expectation that things will get even worse it is nourishing the stampede the. note that it's easy to leave a passport is worth its weight in gold to my money that i need but hell is no way to get a passport at least to pay two thousand dollars under the table which i don't have . that's when the passport office official asked us to move away. those lucky enough to have a passport come here to catch a bus going to peru via colombia and ecuador like everything else the bus tickets go on day by day so the people who are lining up here are doing so not to get a new ticket but to pay the difference from one they bought a month ago at four hundred and forty now they have to pay eight hundred eighty one they can't get on the bus it's prohibitive so like many others alexander is leaving

11:15 pm
a new study of alcohol use one hundred ninety five countries found that even an occasional glass increases the risk of health problems or dying the report attributes two point eight million deaths worldwide each year to alcohol let's go as well to the university of washington of the study's lead author and he says any benefit to drinking alcohol is far outweighed by the risks. both diabetes and heart disease which our on occasion. but we also look at a whole order battery of causes cancers wide range of down some you know there's an injury is found that when you take into consideration all of these factors there's no real benefit to drinking across the spectrum is the study will consider cutting your consumption in af or just a little bit any amount can be hugely beneficial given the shape of the risk for it rises exponentially with consumption so we're very heavy drinker you'll see huge benefits by cutting down by
11:16 pm
a drink or day and if you're still drinking one drink per day you'll see huge benefits of the down as well she said re not every year you have a seven out of one hundred cancer developing one is condition and when we look at the global population that's an immense amount of our the average male drinker it's now consuming around two drinks or. a lot of recommendations don't say up to two drinks a day is to figure out what to counter that a bit by really looking at the whole structure of the research that's been performed on. to india now when he only a million people displaced from their homes in the state of carola as it recovers from the worst floods in a century while many are now questioning whether the disaster could have been avoided andrew thomas reports. hundreds of people have died more than a million fled their homes but how that trip was carolyn's disaster the quantity of rain was unprecedented two and a half times the normal figure for office so far but environmentalists say properly
11:17 pm
managed its land and rivers would have absorbed it and channeled it to the sea over development in flood plains is to blame left but. claiming that even as an wetlands for other uses that is one of them a good thing which agree with us to do it another way the flood plains in the form of paddy relies on about plants would have begun to accommodate an morsels of water . the floods were made worse a environmentalist by quantities of plastic rubbish clocking rivers stopping them flowing faster freely instead the rivers burst their banks but even with those issues the floods say some could have been avoided aside from the long term impact of environmental mismanagement and pollution there is another way that some here are seeing this as a manmade disaster they're blaming those who manage the dams and reservoirs carola has fifty three large reservoirs with a collective capacity of nearly seven trillion liters of water they are managed primarily for hydro electricity production and irrigation for farmers meaning
11:18 pm
operators are reluctant to let the water go when it's not needed so they were near capacity before the worst of the rain fell when it did the water had to be suddenly released to stop dam walls breaking people think infrastructure is a security against flood but more of the flood waters did not come from the rain they come from the release of their dams never happened before if we know too much rain is coming dams should releasing water as gently and not impounding the last drop and then flooding people's out of their homes it's likely no one factor caused carolus flooding but human activity and inactivity seen. so it might it was andrew thomas al-jazeera call them. again i mean there's a problem with the headlines on al-jazeera zimbabwe's highest court has upheld the
11:19 pm
result of last month's presidential election warning that there was no proof of every. president time and money god but now only won the vote the opposition has refused to accept what it called fake results. because it is dismissed with cause. in terms of nine to three subsection four. but a graph of the. number two number. is. there we. do. see. i saw the erotic coalition air strike me a camp for displaced people in yemen has reportedly killed at least thirty the media say it happened today the province meanwhile a new human rights watch report says the saudi coalition's investigations into alleged war crimes lack credibility. saudi arabia is reportedly looking to borrow

11:21 pm
in an instantly shifting news cycle the listening post takes questions the world's media exposing how the press operates and why certain stories take precedence while others are ignored the listening post on al-jazeera. in the stream today we continue our series on the digital view so what does an indigenous superhero actually look like and why does that representation matter i really could be allowed there is a lot to discuss today and i'll be looking out for your comments and your questions online. stream or join our you tube chop. in the director of the american. university of colorado new york. indigenous representation in mainstream popular culture usually relegated to
11:22 pm
subplots mistakes or shamans making a brief appearance to impart some kind of wisdom at indigenous community is often used to represent backwardness and complex histories of rich cultures over joost and romanticize but have a look in at studio we have back stories and characters for indigenous and first nation communities. conceived brought to us by indigenous artists and storytellers make all superhero stories and more are now being written by and for indigenous communities not tone down not furthering stereotypes they are instead building representation have a look at aragon star a kickapoo singer and writer and creator of the super indian comic series this is what you have to say. the reason i created super indian was because i was tired of seeing negative stereotypes about native americans in mainstream comics i wanted to create a character that had native american authenticity and also you know within the
11:23 pm
artwork and also within the rating as for the future of our indigenous superheroes i predict that there are going to be way more than there are now they're going to be more complex mar shades of grey they'll have access to a lot of high tech they'll be futurism so it's going to be great stick around you're going to want to see what we do. out again stuff if i have a day some time off you can come and see here thank you for that great start to rush oh there's so much to talk about joining us from albuquerque new mexico we have lee francis he's the c.e.o. publisher of native reality he also founded the indigenous comic called that's how to new mexico in the united states in silverdale washington state jeffrey very jean is a native american comic artist and designer and in winnipeg canada sonja ballantine is a writer and filmmaker welcome to the stream all of you so i love this what does that
11:24 pm
. mean so yeah that is the wrong way to start with conversation doing it right back to you so when it comes to comic influences our community has a lot to say and we asked them which character stand out for them erin in there's a gateway from the x.-men series and for our audience that isn't familiar with gateway this is him from the marble fandom universe he's an indigenous australian and this is a closer look at gateway li is this character stand out for you when it comes to a good indigenous superhero. i think there's a bunch of things that i thing where they where i really appreciate the ways in which. you know a lot of stuff that came out of marvel and folks because we were writing or drawing that but. you know i think even to my you know my my business relations there's still control units around the character you know the idea of of. you know sort of
11:25 pm
that aboriginal. you know the things that we've seen throughout their history being used sort of the power base i think is a double edged sword and i think that that's you know what we've really been trying to just be about place really intentional about in in our representations not only through what we publish but also when we're trying to bring in you know compare everybody like we actually with these positions. so now i want to show you a cow it took from your childhood it's the green power ranger i have him here on my laptop when i show you well the green power ranger how on earth is he connected talk conversation that we're having right now tell us well well i found out recently that. tommy oliver was supposed to be the worst is an indigenous character and i i didn't know that when i was a child i no i don't either. i know if i knew that as a kid because i was like he was the most popular ranger and still is one of the most popular power injures and i'm like he was in
11:26 pm
a bit like that so who looked. like i think that's one of my one of my clever introduces. secretly native when i have a credit talk about how i consider spock from star trek a native person ok yeah and it's really interesting to me to have that aspect this because like who else could deal with being both vulcan and human being and having so i was like of course he will never found out what his mom was what background is so mike ok she's created i decided it i say oh it's like i'm like you i've always associated spark just being because my my father's non-native and my mom's do so coming from two worlds you are. yeah. that's a great compliment. but yeah i feel same way i've always felt like spock was a kindred spirit yeah that's one of the big things for me with spock is that he's
11:27 pm
both feeling with not being balkan and not them not being human enough and i've always felt that one aspect of native the native experience not being native enough because you can't speak your own language but not being white enough because you're so different everybody else so it's like i don't know anderson why there aren't more nicci people like native people into star trek i felt like the only one for a long time when i was a kid. but what i'm only asking you to. like i did i felt that way with like you know my dad was just like a super cycle i think and and so it was i think it was this wonderful precedent that was set in our own soul this like being native nurse or being native tear was not something that was foreign to me and especially like reading comics my dad was a huge reader so didn't matter if you know i was going out reading comics he was like yeah he got something because you can read and it's awesome you know i mean
11:28 pm
this stuff it was like cool there's now i like over the past couple years like a look at all these native nerds will be there around right now. i met currently reading an article about. visiting cons and the most of the con in my city did not have very many native people going to let until very recently and it's felt like that again when i was a little kid being the only star trek nerd in northern manitoba itself like oh my god like i'm the only one wire there anymore but just like and so it's very cool to see that it's becoming more acceptable to be a nerd because where some of the nerdiest people in the world so i don't know why i don't know the stats well i would have to notice that all right guys let's let's let's get some juice out of here what makes an indigenous superhero fantasy what are the ingredients that you need tad to make them native fascination indigenous. well our one of the first ones i think is like a lot of
11:29 pm
a lot of superheroes in general suffer loss and that always made such a big impact on me because i'm like well why. as indigenous people we have suffered so much loss and asked so why aren't we indigenous why aren't we superheroes yet like asking for a man who has lost this planet wonder woman lost her home because she had to leave spider-man lost his family and it's like why i think this is still it's so easily transferred to us so i don't understand why we aren't heroes yet in that universe. so i don't know what you're saying there sonja about what you see a superhero having in their background but unfortunately our audience says too often they look like this this is a lean on twitter saying often they're limiting depictions of natives to old mystical indian or noble savage stereotypes and that's incredibly harmful and leads people to believe that we're stuck in the past and capable of adapting to modern times and alina goes on to say there are certain spiritual and ceremonial aspects
11:30 pm
that are also seen as a private thing and many native cultures so they can't be accurately depicted in comics which leads to bad and or append indian depictions of spirituality even when this is a part of the characters and background so jeffrey i wonder if you can pick up on that the hard characterization and i think lee touched on that a little bit earlier when he talks about it's a double edged sword we have some fantastic things fantastic symbolism fantastic spirituality in our culture when it's misrepresented the way it has been it becomes either a really bad cliche or a bad negative stereotype so when you have a native creator coming in there and he's in fusing his or her culture into his characters people might see that is oh that's just adding the stereotype with the reality is you know this is how it's properly done jeffrey. you know i was. it's going to add to i think that partly it's it's about the lived experience when it's
11:31 pm
a non-native writer what they're looking at is the is the binge fringe bettors and and food right so they're going to add the tropes because it looks cool and i like cool characters i think they're really i mean you know there's there's really amazing things that can come out of that from the imagination but when i write and i write characters in the people that we try to engage each. oh yeah. i hear what you're saying. to me it's i'm just going to jump over to something for a moment because you're talking about creating characters so new this is exactly what you've been doing have a look here this is kerry barry lynn it's a children's book. on how does that fit into what we're talking about right now because you're creating characters that work for other people like you and youngsters growing up right now i think a lot of my work is autobiography autobiographical in terms of. write and i write with. what did i want to see when i was
11:32 pm
a little kid and so i write with that intention always and sometimes it. i'm really surprised by how non-stereotypical things could come out for me or sometimes so your typical things could come about and so like i'm creating a superhero right now called thunderbird who was in my first film and there's a whole section where they create her costume and the entity that is her coffee decides that it likes a mole so it makes her costume look like a. design and there's a whole scene where maggie who is the thunder bird she says like what i'm creating i can't have a height across the human like her or her sentience symbol symbiont cos there was like no no it's fine well we'll deal with this later and i'm like oh ok so it's like coming up with stuff that got me angry to you as a kid like well and i hated seeing fathers i hated being seen as lake shy and or
11:33 pm
apache when i am a creep person so it's like i really want to eliminate that pan indian idea sure jeffrey you are people who know some of your stories i know some of your. how do you approach knowing that you come with you come to the table with some real integrity and then what do you do with your art. he walked gingerly and boldly at the same time. i want people to see that the native voice is behind and out but i also want to see the characters he said their characters just as much as they're mine they're part of our pop culture history and so that recognition is there soon as you see that and whether your data or you're not this is just me showing a native voice to these characters and i've been honored and lucky enough to be able to work on very a lot of the ones that i had loved as a child it's just been fantastic journey for me. any idea when.
11:34 pm
alien life is you know mark you've made before that was one of my favorite pieces of art that i ever saw like and the way you say i posted on twitter too but i love the superman the way you do it because to me superman is a native person like in all aspects except skin color so it's like seeing that almost made me want to cry cause i'm like oh my god did. you know like i said i be honest i just want to have fun but i also want people to know where i'm come from and i'm proud of where i come from natives we have a rich culture we have much to offer the world and we're just people are just now starting to recognize it and see the tip for that giant iceberg that's just looming out there waiting for us to explode on the world and yet i feel let the problem teach this because and. in regards to last i feel that we often felt that seeing native people get relegated to the past made us feel so strange in terms of how like well i'm a modern native but i don't exist in the media so
11:35 pm
a lake in my weird and so seeing pretty creature ready creatures nerdy natives on t.v. was something that was really cool to me because i lost my mind there's a show in canada called corner gas that has an indigenous character named davis who is a priest at a police sergeant and there's this whole conversation you has where he's talking that you're off. another person in need and he's talking about battlestar galactica and i was like oh. so happy about that so i love those little jim just yank things you love that you love seeing them. oh yeah and it's so much that i love this. is our native american. so i want to jump in here because i want to bring our community back in this is a conversation that if you are having about why it's important to have indigenous creator behind the scenes so wish i had done twitter says marvel they have
11:36 pm
a new or character out and they said that marvel has a bigger responsibility then to hire native writers and artists their most recent character is based on innuit culture and they did consult with a native person for it but consultation is not enough it's a free pass that they did their homework so that's a critique and i'll show you that character in just a moment but i want to bring this tweet in next because dale here on the other side of that debate says we as native writers and illustrators now have the resources to publish and distribute on our own terms we no longer have to wait for anyone to give us permission or give us room at events like comic-con we're changing it our selves so you can see the marvel character behind me but lee i want to go to you with this conversation talking about is it the duty of these bigger houses like marvel or d.c. comics to include these voices or is that up to indigenous communities themselves i think we make our own path and we know that there's
11:37 pm
a market through this. and how we're going to go out but i also think that my main thing and i will show you on that is. too often you've been serving as consultants in these ways you know listen jack is amazing you know and should be should have. been. really need we we're losing a little bit of you i'm so sorry about that let me just show you what part of what he does he has a bookstore the is dedicated to indigenous comics and fantasy and graphic novels and some of the tunnels a really important titles then more important titles but i want to point out a couple of them we have code talkers here and them we have to deal women of and yet these are stories that are really important that to be told in the not the kind of so is the off to make into comics. yeah yeah i think this is that we're going to
11:38 pm
make our own ways it was the reason we wanted to. work but i've been able to be a part of i was going to wait around for anybody we just decided to start publishing and start a comic on an open. got it yeah. i actually wanted to go to comic-con and when i first heard of it and my first film actually played there and i was so upset i couldn't go because i that wasn't i made my first film crash site with the intention of it going to places like indigenous comic-con and so it's really important to me that these places exist but yeah i agree with reed that we often had to make our make our own way into these events and because there's a there's a thirst for this work but i think there's a lot of problems with places like marvel or d.c. where they're like well that's true nishabd market lake who are people other than native people going to buy these books and it's it's such a it seems like such
11:39 pm
a wall we still have to climb because i'm like you know with the success of things like black panther people don't believe like the big places the big publishing houses don't believe that there's chances of success with such a market. so in making your own way i want to pivot on not because we got this comic live on you tube this is the walker who says why do we need fictional superheroes only those who feel inferior need heroes only those who feel inferior see others as super so that's an interesting comment there he's getting a lot of the this person is getting a lot of feedback on you tube a lot of superhero been times in our community. that in mind keep this point in mind because i want to play a video comment from j. who's an on going when artist and a writer out of canada and this is why he says we need these super heroes. quae jail judgment is because home and he was jailed you're going to go good writer artist top producer comic creator from a killing on c.b.s.
11:40 pm
not me community i wrote andrew created a graphic novel called could go either even though as leader of the after the two television series that airs in canada the united states and australia also drew book called black lies wealth or rather much that was a national bestseller you can why does representation matter simply put we can't let our kids and business children and people of color grow up in a world where the only way they ever see themselves represented in the media and pop culture is that's the bad guys or even worse the comic relief so if you're thinking about a career in comics you might get involved in the media we need your voice now more than ever because right now anything's possible if i did it so can you so i look forward to watching your shows reading your books get in the mix we need you piece . yeah jay's said it will cause i wish he had been on here because i wanted to tell him how much i wished i had existed when i was a kid because if i'd seen that i would have like lost my mind i'm like this thing that brought a kid out to read. like a fairy to yell but it was so cool to see like i think we need heroes because no
11:41 pm
one asks why people need superman nobody asks why we need bad memory just do because they inspire us you aim higher and i think with our lake with the three of x. that we're kind of inspiring younger kids to go into it because i didn't see any writers growing up that were native and it's really important for me to show kids that they can be other than nurses and doctors and lawyers like we can be a lot of different thank you both so important to me see that. i think heroes are important because they reflect who we are they are the epitome of what we hope to be as as a people as per people there that you're. so you have a native hero you want that native hero to put in my eyes everything that is great wonderful about our culture we need those the symbols of champions of who where we come from different you know what i was thinking about was i was looking you were
11:42 pm
looking at the amazing been doing and the sun has been doing is that from my study of those two cultures and different communities indigenous communities that culture the history the spiritual physicians has so much better stronger more amazing well magical than any superhero story that i've ever seen already mcgrane the culture what do you need made us and that's what i think you owe me. anything that i've ever seen in d.c. all malvo all a any of those big mainstream ones you have those super heroes already culture who already doing magical things and are not even magical things this is what they did and i think that's where we're heading i think we're certain to see that right now i think that if you look back at a lot of the a lot of the heroes that we we see that the comic pages today derive from each stories greek myths different other mythology still we're now allowed because of weight things are today we're loud to share and build off of our own culture and
11:43 pm
our own mythologies developed worlds. and villains the way we see the way that we from the stories that we know and we're just start to see that i you know jeff and i want to bring this in from amanda she's a teacher and she's uses indigenous comics in her teaching material she says my students are mostly non-native and they have very little knowledge about living indigenous peoples we climb this hill together to bring them into reality and a better understanding and i often start with a collection like moon shot might start with six killer she gives a couple examples and says just reading and engaging with comments by indigenous writers and authors versus student expectations the native peoples are no longer here. and the resulting discussion usually lacks defensive bias so limited that to you because this is important for all audiences she's saying yeah yeah big it is six it was my my work and i wanted to sense you know native folks that are dead or
11:44 pm
dying that's another part of think that we've been trying to accomplish with this work in a manner points out a lot of other folks pointed out is that the pop culture is a case of that native people sort of get stuck in the western and various western motifs and so what you end up with is is this a if. it was for all i know lee's attorney jeffrey you can finish the sentence i know you're all right so here's what i think might happen that there might be this tension happening between mainstreaming comics and graphic novels and then what you want to do as artists who happen to be indigenous and you would be seen that fight or can everybody want to get a free. oh yes i think everybody can work together if we have a healthy respect towards each and every culture that it's possible that. it's being done we just need to see more of it so. yeah i agree with that with that
11:45 pm
like people were thinking that black panther the movie was all they could have before people of africa and the santo are black are people that are black but everybody from a variety of cultures love that movie like i remember seeing it my almost started around dance in the theater so i saw a lot of my own culture in that movie and like the importance of our own stuff and so i believe that level yet any representation for any group that isn't just a default page and is like something that we all love i mean people that just because if it's just one of the time to fly it's what they're not it's open to people who so talented and the few. jeffrey and sun will thank you for being part of the story today thank you thank you will and on you tube in january who says there are so many superheroes in our communities that are on song and comics are how we hope for youth to imagine new heroes from a cultural base thank you so much for watching we will see you next time take

a fair judgement because the judges of if you did the evidence that you put which is evidence from the from this is probably election commission itself they did not like that if you didn't. there is but one problem is not. so what is the way forward for the opposition. is the national council to decide the way for what number of options that we do have the group is closed now what remains of the political and diplomatic rules we are going to explore those but if we do we have it within the law there are some people that perhaps the main opposition leader nelson chamisa may want some kind of power sharing deal was on it can you confirm or deny this i'm not here to say because these depends on what the national council says number one number two to depends on the extra if so what is it do we have not discussed about sharing it or in the past them opposition leaders

officials and from election officials as well out what i can say is that a very large percentage of the population voted for the opposition when i got it was victory was very narrow indeed and the is virtually no way that he can take over the presidency without a cloud of suspicion surrounding him as he moves forward so does nelson chamisa play a role and helping the country move forward as well. it's essential just to for the world to know that it was and bob we just know that this election is now over the best thing for me sick can do for his party and it was symbolic wins is to move forward and do what he can to work with this new government one must remember that he represents nearly for forty fifty percent of the population a very large percentage of zimbabweans he has a voice to play here what he needs to do is to turn his mind away from the election challenge which is not conclusive and not decide how he can best work with men and

dog was a team even with. the various concerns that you laid out about how this election played out. is it fair to say though that it was still an improvement and a maybe a step in the right direction compared to the way things have been in the past. yes i mean certainly the conduct of election officials on election day was very encouraging observers were all but certain that election officials would be trying to conduct the poll in a fair and balanced manage that state security officials would not be coercing poses as this happened many times in the posture so events on election day were encouraging and i think it heartened by the international community that this was indeed and you symbolically but certainly events in the days that followed it securely the extraordinary killings all of six individuals six protesters on the streets of harare hakan back to the gobby era and that has severely dented the
