11:17 pm
a special court to deal with sexual violence but this will be ordinary gender and sexual based violence and not conflict related sexual violence and i think there's a huge distinction because the one means that you're going to have to hold many of the military commanders accountable and that's really where the commission's aim is which is to look at this question of command and superior responsibility because our work is in preparation for the future hybrid court of south sudan in that two hundred page report the commission says crimes continue and that there is an increase in arbitrary detention torture execution and in fourth appearances and that sexual violence which previous report has said was used as a weapon of war in the conflict is on the rise the commission also said that south sudan oil income which accounts for more than mine three percent of the country's. kaname could be used to fund the war south sudan's government denies that we're in the war the war he said. we have an agreement signed in. which the

11:22 pm
being at the festival first up not down the house a look at how four women built a movement that led all the way to the u.s. congress we spoke to a few of those women including new york representative alexandria ocasio part has the red carpet premiere. better known by her initials a o c the first time congresswoman spoke to the stream about the significance of her win in the november u.s. midterm elections this documentary is about progressive women running for office what do you think that the new wave of progressive young women who are injured like yourself bring to the table that wasn't there before well i think it's it's an entirely new perspective you know progressive young women of color. a population that's probably the exact opposite of who has historically been represented at the highest levels of government and so because of that it's it's not just a question of identity and the physical form which we occupy but it's also the
11:23 pm
perspective the beliefs and and the experiences that a lot of people have never experienced that inform our policies and how we argue for those things it was he was among four first time p. male candidates profiled in the documentary writer and director rachel liers so we started following the story in two thousand and sixteen and at that time it was a story of of people who were trying to work together across the country. to build a more positive vision for where this country could go for what justice and equality can look like in america for what politics can be and should be in this country cory bush upstate lewis also ran for a seat in the u.s. house of representatives that's why i was running to show the diversity black women are stronger beautiful you need our voices it's more that this is what we do through we are more than just
11:24 pm
a vote voting bloc and so i think now what they're showing is be used as a true to who you are and people are going to be met either way they're going to be managing the moment are going to love you know the moment just a clear on your mission so right now i'm already announced i'm running again i didn't complete the missions on going back the next will also is just making sure that people are seeing this film to see what is really what really happens what really takes place in running for congress demystifying the campaign process is also a goal for representative ocasio courthouse what i would hope people get out of washington . that you can do. that. if the four of us could run for office then anybody would rather probably ask that you all should you know right now our democracy looks at us and right now our democracy needs working class people to stand by and not just blow it but to rise.
11:25 pm
well check out more money because coverage in a moment but for now a look at the story of ricky jackson who spent thirty nine years in prison for a crime he didn't commit he recounts his experience and sent me home a three hundred sixty degree immersive journey of his return to society take a look. for the most part lang's imprisoned stay stagnant. and to this picture of my brothers and sisters as children and then to meet them as middle east and don't. bring home more than anything how much i missed. in two thousand and fourteen ricky was released and exonerated at the time of his release however he was the longest held u.s. prisoner for a wrongful conviction he joins us now on skype from cleveland ohio and in austin
11:26 pm
texas we have cassandra revenues go is the director of send me home also joining us welcome both of you to the stream ricky i have so many questions for you and our community here at the stream also how many questions for you so i'm going to start with one from aria. what went through your mind when you were in prison did you ever think you were going to get out and what did you do to occupy yourself so as not to lose hope. as a lot it goes through. your skin your frustrated your friday. and sometimes a lot of times you know i didn't think i want to get out i thought it was my faith this is my life is gone right here. but i found i did it phase and i started educate myself. i stayed away from a lot of the rigors of prison and prison my prison lifestyle because i didn't feel
11:27 pm
like i belonged there and so. my mom told me before she passed away you're not a prisoner don't let these people make you a christian and so my go began to i started reading educating myself i just developed a sport gracious appetite. and trying to grow up. and you know ricky hearing you say that and having watched the documentary also mention your money mother in there and i know that you talk about having to turn off certain emotions when you were in prison just to survive like you just mentioned what was it like turning those back on if you will i mean when you come out is it is it overwhelming is it is it not working you think in your mind that once this ordeal has passed you that you'll be normal but you you're not you can't be. apt to have you find those emotions so long it just became
11:28 pm
a habit and once i was released from prison. being summers around my family my friends the new york things. the emotions just weren't there they couldn't come and i wanted to be happy i wanted to feel relief and contentment but it was just so hard and be i'm done a lot better since i've been out of prison but it's still like that murder always wants to creep back and i can imagine and you know i want to play for our audience you know for those who haven't even seen the film there's this clip where you talk about getting a phone call from your mother and i just want to get your thoughts on what that experience was like a really affected me when i do watch so let's take a look at this. the day he told me my mother died. it was like telling me to day ran out of mashed potatoes. removed i was from it emotionally because i couldn't express emotion you said you
11:29 pm
couldn't express emotion i can hear the motion in your voice there what's it like now when you think about your mother or your family i know you're you have a big family now it's it's. just hearing that clip right there are the emotions just come up so suddenly and. they're just hard to control you know the hardest the press i'm not going i'm going to try and suppress but you know. you would think it will come gradually but my it's just like the title you know what i think about moments like that in my life and they're hard to control hard to control for anyone i can imagine only for you sandra is there first time making a three hundred sixty degree film i mean why was this the right story to to embark on that kind of mission. yeah. there's an appetite i think for three sixty films
11:30 pm
right now and then trust me exploring the possibilities expression for a story is as important as this and we wanted to contribute to that space in a conversation about wrongful conviction about racial inequity of mass incarceration but honestly it was hearing ricky for the first time speak about his relationship to art actually ted talk that i got myself and the production company that i represent lonely leap really interested in digging in to serve transporting quality his relationship to our struck us and. when i helped on the phone with ricky for the first time his reflection on memory and space. really aligned with the potential for a three sixty's film so it really had to do with the story more than anything else . i don't know if we would have made a three sixty film had it not been. for the way in which ricky was thinking
11:31 pm
about his experiences and. where he is in life today and you know i'm also curious when you were actually there filming you know what was it like just simply getting your equipment i mean you're filming equipment into that prison cell i mean did that did not reveal things to you about the criminal justice system or what his experience must have been like. if i share this with you ricky but we worked really hard to try to find a maximum security prison and active an operational one and having a documentary filming crew and certainly not for three sixty and so for security reasons but also a lack of transparency so we ended up filming at a maximum security prison that's in disuse and we went there and it was completely empty we had a full reign of this prison and it. in that moment we were realizing how
11:32 pm
completely opposite it was for any experience that rikki must've had or. any number of men or women that are incarcerated today so it was a really strange a strange sort of autonomy or power that we had while there and it just hit home that much harder that we had the luxury of moving through the space while others don't and you know ricky we have so many comments coming in asking us what your life's like now and you know what it was like back then but also they're drawing attention to how common this is you know and how many other people i don't even want to use the word lucky but but you know i ended up having another chance if you will or the the chance that they were deprived of wrongfully and i'm just curious why did you agree to do this film and what can be done to actually have others. you know have their rights granted to them from the trauma i was released from prison
11:33 pm
i always had a mission. that i wanted you know not only but my sake and not to translate body while the brits meant. a lot of other man that i spent with it prison thirty yet not yet cross race. we were just really didn't simply ice you know i mean you know where so many people even while languishing chris nearly every once a month you would hear about and inmate somewhere and i country been exonerated every day every day and since my release at twenty fourteen. i wanted to just say to go in at least fifty it's not a raise that had been released from prison wrongful incarceration. and i'm like i see it. not only to get my story out but to get their story out and
11:34 pm
make people aware that this is not just a small problem. do you cities in our country it's nationwide and i mean it's nationwide and ricky you know you talk about it being nationwide the statistics are certainly alarming but so is your personal story and obviously that's what's documented in this film but we have someone on twitter and he's saying here most people of color don't have access to good legal representation or were coerced to accept a plea bargain they were treated as guilty prior to conviction and u.s. lawmakers need to devise a mechanism to check the systemic judicial xenophobia and i saw senator you were nodding i was going to ask the question why were you not. i was nodding because of thinking about the work that the innocence project does one of the legal organization that works to help incarcerated people that are facing wrongful conviction but are allowed to he to chime in and he knows kind of firsthand what that process has been in order to find an organization like you know yes ricky i
11:35 pm
mean do you agree with what i've been he said i mean obviously it seems true on the face of it but as someone who's personally gone through this i would imagine you have friends who have what do you make of what ebony said that was a very accurate statement and. there are pretty much no checks and balances in the system. and people who are entrusted in these trusted positions have no checks and balances being brought against him so it's just a willy nilly type system and for the most part everything gets rubber stamped and you know rick i want to play another video comment that came in from kyle swanson i'm not sure if you know who kyle is but kyle's a bit for i'm going to let you go of course you do let's take a listen. actually overturning a wrongful conviction as country is also incredibly difficult mainly because the american criminal justice system is not really hardwired in
11:36 pm
a way where claims of innocence can be accurately handled by the appeals process so really what you need is pressure from outside the criminal justice system and in ricky's case my reporting as a journalist in cleveland helped kind of create that pressure by showing that this case was so problematic ricky how critical was kyle's voice and what can be done for others who are in your situation or the situation you are made of all of the statements that have been weighed so far on this interview that has to be the most point hit because up until a certain time all the pressure was coming from outside you know home and forty people in authority and administrations to look at these cases now it's almost the opposite now day some cities have started task force to look at the questionable cases and. like i said that i me his work and i like
11:37 pm
others all around the country that are doing just kind of investigative work and bringing to bear to rush it calls the news these administrators take a second all right look at what's going on and perpetrate and. we're going to get rid of rick i'd be remiss not to ask you about you know being compensated a lot of people on twitter like kim and clint talking about you know different things such as forgive me right there well i'm not going to go through all the tweets there's too many tweets but what can you tell us and what can tell us about the compensation is it enough. well people waste you know question a lot and my answer is always how do you put a price on human life. i apologize i'm going to stop you there because i think you said the most poignant part was a moment ago i think that's a good point and question how do you put a price life i want to thank you both for being with us we're going to continue this conversation online but right now we're switching gears back to south by southwest where another documentary is creating buzz for some a is
11:38 pm
a story about love family and survival in aleppo during the war in syria take a look. you know more start. looking. and you want to make also. spoke with a co-director. and edward watts on sunday in austin to discuss the challenges and
11:39 pm
sacrifices that they endured while making for some. this is your first feature film premier in here how would you describe what this film is like what's. actually like i've come to consider that it's my friend you know like it's not just the story it's my life it's everything i went through or through like a mosque like. difficulty years and long my life. like. this is the point of everything that i went through. i print just like a phone to my daughter to explain to her why we were there what the point of being there and that's a difficult moment and what the choice as the flight care father and we like to will do whatever we did. a love letter but a bittersweet one to your daughter a great i know that you were involved in the filmmaking process what is that like
11:40 pm
to go through someone else's footage and someone else's life but to help them came to this picture for a bigger audience a wider audience it was incredible i mean when white and i first sat together in the hilton and they stumbled we sat for like six days and we watched all of this incredible footage and the way i describe it is what came of this most say these fragments and some of them were these tiny little fragments just driving shot out of a window of the computer and then there were these other extraordinary shots where she would move to the hospital filming the scenes in one continuous shot that went on for most twenty five minutes and. it was just an incredible process really of trying to piece this together into a picture that was a coherent story to cover five years in an hour and a half was not easy and it was just an amazing journey i think for both of us to come together in terms of i was coming from an audience's point of view you know trying to tell the most dynamic and accessible story but obviously it's why it's
11:41 pm
wife and i want to speak of the story about like syrian. like people so it was a. re not to have life. like this from inside and outside so yeah it was a daily amazing willfully felt like both of us together we say you know there's all these talk about the division stuff that exists in the world but you have a serious moment in a british man coming together to make a. ninety six. series successfully. it's bittersweet and it's poignant and it is. also do you remember where you were when protests broke out what your life was like then yeah of course i couldn't oh no nothing of the syrian life. to you one way it ended today implies to change our life and like the whole life you know there were the holy wars actually not just our life and with the employ of like free syria we with them to change our like
11:42 pm
life to the better to the best things we. unfortunately like everything like went through after this was like one of us and like as i said at the end of the phone i don't know if i did it and i know how they. are our viewers will still want to watch it like. it was really like. it's experience and i'm very proud of this is story of my story of i'm very proud of all of the syrian stories there's a moment in the film where you explain the title of what the film would be called and why you named your daughter why you gave her that me it's bittersweet but can you talk to us about that moment. like we were when we watch all the like we were like just looking for what like the whole film would be about and there was like millions of. like i was really like confusing because you know i have
11:43 pm
a lot of things to speak about so it's not. what if it was sorry you know why did you just only just left and all of this footage it was you know there was still so much emotion and there was so much story i mean it was just this five years of anyone's life is amazing i mean your life and life just had to complexity and. love from family and human conflict and horror. and journey for us to try and found in the other side that has a lot of like it's a possibility you know more of these people who like where in the new people or all the same people that there's a story should be like told should be told like very like very honest and like very linear war it's to people to understand like what was really happening there so it was like really mix between these two things your life and where you were living and why you felt like you had to help the syrian people is because you were living
11:44 pm
in one of the last standing hospitals in aleppo how people till the very end. that had to have been incredibly difficult and yet on the one hand you're filming this as a documentarian and as a journalist on the other hand you're living it you're living in that hospital you're seeing people committed to that hospital talk to us about those split emotions and what that must feel like now actually it's the whole time what is the relish about it's because i was the son journalist to where they're trying to determine their sinks and the other hand i was a mother with a wife and trying to live my own life you know they say in this place and all the footage was like when we start to do this film applause makes between like like the journalist and the woman who lives there and you know it was as i told you it wasn't just my friends that's my story it's my life and this is what i don't want people to know about syria i've been wanting to make. a film about syria pretty
11:45 pm
much since the revolution began because i think through the whole history of the conflict. there's been so much lines of misinformation and so much of how we perceive what happened there is filtered through the lens of the prism of terrorism and isis threat and i think what this film does and why it has shown us more shows all of the incidences the humanity of the people and the fact that everyone who watches has their friends can see themselves in it and i think through that everyone can understand really the truth of what happened across these years of conflict why it began you know what it was like told me syrians to be caught in it and i hope that that makes them then reflect on this tragedy that we've essentially allowed to happen for the fact that we fail to stand with syrian people like him who are just fighting for their dignity freedom so i hope that people think about. we wish you the best of luck to you and thank you so much for being here and

11:51 pm
have been regular incidents over the last few years or so one of them of course that stick to memory is the building collapse in lagos where i charge went under with lots of washing clothes a few years ago trial of those accused of being complicit in the incident is still going on in courts in nigeria now there is the issue of proper regulation of buildings in lagos state this particular school it's not clear whether or not it has government approval but it's common to find schools in residential areas and in other locations that were not meant for educational institutions and right now authorities are trying to see how many life they can save from the building collapse and what really are the records of people who are thought to be trapped under the building how many address updating us there from for more updates on this
11:52 pm
story you can go to our website at www dot com our correspondent made and his team bring you the latest from lagos as it happens they are on their way to lagos right now to that site and we have to get updates from them in the coming hours. now it just sixteen days to go until britain's shared your departure from the european union there is growing uncertainty despite the overwhelming rejection on tuesday night of the british prime minister's brags a plan to resign may was defiant as she stood up to face the opposition during question time a few hours ago she told parliament her deal is still the best option on the table the house of commons voted against her amended plan by three hundred ninety one to two hundred forty two deepening britain's worst political crisis for generations. i have a i may not have my own voice but i do understand the voice of the country they
11:53 pm
want. and that is people want to these the e.u. they want to entry movement they want to have our own trade policy they want to ensure laws and made in this country and judged in our courts that's what the deal jeanette has that's what i continue to work to deliver. her deal has been flatly rejected twice by this house my own precedented majorities and even the smalling the c.b.i. has said that no deal would be and i quote a sledgehammer to the economy. and. we went on to say there has been no consultation with business adding this is no way to run a country the reason her deal is now dead is because every step of the way the prime minister has refused to listen. now the big question now is what happens
11:54 pm
next will parliament will be facing another choice in just a few hours or nine hundred g.m.t. that is when m.p.'s will vote on whether the u.k. should leave the twenty eight member bloc without any deal if it is rejected there's another vote on thursday and that's on delaying the march twenty ninth break the deadline if that is passed may will need to request the extension from the european union but the blocks already said it will only do that if there is a good enough reason i'm against every extension when an extension of one day one week even twenty four hours if it is not based on a clear opinion of the house of commons for something that we know what they want is it less ambitious than the deal ok this lesson which is that the deal that's your opinion if it is a customs union it is a customs union if it just india it is the deal if it is a norway person it's
11:55 pm
a lot of press but please make up your mind because this uncertainty cannot continue well honestly is live for us now in london outside parliament and lines i should point out as well that the prime minister theresa may has allowed m.p.'s and her party a free vote here meaning that they can vote with their conscience and not along party lines so given that what can we expected tonight's vote. one way or the other to rule out no deal because there is no majority for keeping it in but the thing is it doesn't actually ruled it out it only defers a's but the you know the great complaints and you have to give up stat say then and everybody says the same thing is that it's one thing ruling out series amazed and saying you want to do something else instead but still they can decide as a as a group of people what he teasing stead that they want to do and you can see it's
11:56 pm
in all the amendments to the vote that have been tabled today there's one calling for a abandoning it completely there's another one effectively which keeps no dealing as an option one supposedly down the road for twenty one months with another referendum and on and on it goes and they all want their own little way of solving the problem and they had seem to have no way of coalescing around a single idea because they seem to think that their idea these little tribes inside ballance is the only one that works and it's making everybody friends say with were you can hear m.p.'s saying out loud this is a failing parliament they're saying themselves they are failing and so it's telling so flat prices for democracy now in the u.k. let's also matthew goodwin who is research fellow at chatham house and the university of kansas well. filing parliament to agree well i do agree i think breaks it all the vote for rights it was always the first moment in british history when a majority of people outside of parliament also something that a majority of people inside parliament didn't want to gave and that's always really
11:57 pm
injected a crisis at the heart of our constitution and what we can see now is a parliament that's really divided and unable to get that consensus position as you say that would actually satisfy the country a whole but they've only got i mean the you know the european union's make it absolutely clear that if they can count come up with a different idea probably by the european council at the end of next week then they won't get an extension so they've got about a week to figure out how they can come up with an alternative plan there's only signed it and they can do that i think the only things that we can see number one is a lack of a majority for a new deal number two. it's probably now a majority for an extension of some description and i think number three over the longer term a majority for a soft a vision of bricks at the not put forward by mrs my now that is going to have consequences most of mrs may's vote is conservative voters they back no deal them a stale so the conservative party is going to be terribly divided as it comes out of this moment in british politics of all these parts is a concession in the labor as well of a of
11:58 pm
a concerned about the national interest and the future direction of britain rather concerned about keeping the policies together ultimately these are politicians and politicians tend to be self interested but i think there is an interesting question here around to what extent can the main parties as they are currently constituted adequately deal with bracks said and there was always this question hanging over the entire episode could conservatives hold on to their pro breaks it working cos voters but their program aimed at london university town vote is a good labor hold on to the industrial progress in north while also holding on to its middle class professionals in the south and it may be maybe that actually breaks it is breaking british open what do you think i mean you do all this polling in the public mood what do you think people want now you know do they want to just topple all ediface and have different policies do they want brics it still want what do you think the moodies voters are disillusioned and fed up there was an opinion poll just two days ago that showed eighty percent of voters now feel that they are no longer represented by the main parties. this is
11:59 pm
a crisis moment in british politics more than two thirds of voters say that the two main parties no longer give them an appealing choice at elections it may be that if the politicians cannot come up with that consensus position that what we begin to see is the rise of new challenger parties the takers for example the independent group for remain a new nigel farage ukip polity full leave on the conservative and labor policies find themselves increasingly under pressure now that's one scenario another is that the main party somehow conjure up this consensus position but what does that look like. time's running out yeah it sure is pretty good we thank you very much is certainly one final thought is and i know i've said this before if this happened absolutely on the continents you wouldn't have this because they have coalition politics and they used to building bridges with each other and it's on the crosses there is no tradition here of doing that and that's why these policies won't talk to each other it is really one of the biggest problems that brics is revealed about british politics and there certainly is a very messy picture there lawrence lee live for us there in london of for all
