show how much they didn't like the disruption and facebook says it's still working to sort the problem out but it's insisting that it's not due to a cyber attack let's bring to our obama cannot his a digital rights activist he's joining us via skype from cork in ireland ira good to talk to you do you believe facebook then that this wasn't the result of a cyber attack does it matter i mean that's not the real issue here is it expected we've taken a system the internet which was meant to be decentralized and we introduce single points of failure like facebook this is why the centralization is so important this is why centralization is such a problem because if you have two billion people and their means of communicating using the internet is a single place facebook which also makes its money by spying on everything that they're saying and has to commit as they're communicating this is not
a resilient system it's not a system that's compatible with human rights or democracy ok so you're going to be in chief in them with the lights of elizabeth warren in the united states you know who's running for president for twenty twenty and indeed we understand there are certain elements within the u.k. who are advocating for the break up of these mega tech companies like face value to agree with them. sure break them up regulate their abuses so that they don't harm people as much but also invest in ethical decentralized alternative smaller technologies that this is big tech we need small tech to counter that human scale human level tools that just work for humans not for corporate interests invest in that because some of the other things we're hearing especially for from the u.k. with this recent review that came out is they are proposing that smaller companies should have more access to this data and that will increase competition no these
companies facebook google etc should have never had our data to begin with the way you give people started going to know i mean yes you have the suggestion then that it's broken up that smaller entities. have access to the marketplace if you like i mean why should that investment come from that if it's not going to come from the corporate world well why don't we consider investing in technology for the common good from the commons itself we pay taxes let's use some of that to build ethical technological infrastructure we can build economies on top of that that's not that shouldn't be our initial focus but when you look at the group for example that red led the the u.k. review it was read it was lead story by a harvard professor who talks in the language of silicon valley innovation and startups and you know these people only have one word in their book kathy larry and it begins with a b. and with an s. it's business business business we should start thinking very quickly about human
rights about people about welfare not just how much money some corporations are making they sound very much as they this initiative if it's ever going to if it's ever going to gain any momentum is not going to come from the the big western capitalist countries. no it's definitely not going to come from the united states so why are we listening to people from the united states who worship at the alter of silicon valley we need a different way forward in europe we can have a different way forward but it's not going to come from us trying to destroy their corporate interest it's going to come from us trying to further human interests our own interests as individuals. good to you again talking to us live. in. is going to be. a minute including. six hundred kilometers the world's most famous dog sled race and it's.

allocated bound browns are looking more and more like n.f.l. championship contenders up to signing one of the sport's biggest us odell beckham genius he's the n.f.l.'s highest paid receiver and his soap trade from the new york giants was made official on wednesday the browns were winless in two thousand and seventeen and i only want seven games last season but beckon could help change that according to n.f.l. pro cost michael calls and potentially he is the best receiver in the league he certainly being the most spectacular but his his last couple of years with new york giants have been rather in and out with a little bit of controversy on the team quite a few injury absences and the question is how will he bear down to basically when he joins the browns now he joins of team that's really designed to break through to the top echelons of the n.f.l. this year he's got a quarterback at baker mayfield in his second year who had a very fine rookie season and ought to get better and he rejoins jarvis landry they
were teammates in college and the two receivers will give cleveland a alayo later to approach to receiving in other words landry is great on the mid mid range passes across the middle of the old and beck and his great going date and mayfield is the kind of quarterback who can make time for himself to throw balls and it's going to be very difficult for defenses to deal with the two of them. and alaska native has won this year's i did dog sled rice off to one thousand six hundred promises to cross the line in just twelve minutes ahead of the defending champion for his first victory in ten attempts that's also the narrowest victory margin of the forty six year race that ends an eight year drought of alaskan native whenas he takes home fifty thousand dollars and a new truck. yeah it feels good to get here i mean it's that you know just the trail itself it's a long trail but to come out on top of some extra special and see this huge crowd

coming up. i'll just there obtained exclusive pictures from the high level meeting between the taliban and the u.s. . founder says he's hopeful the talks would help resolve the conflict. and the day before planned protest new prime minister promises a government of technocrats open to all. hundreds of people are sick in malaysia after suspected chemical ali. saudi arabia says those responsible for the murder of the journalist. have been brought to justice the head of its human rights commission made the statements at a un human rights conference in geneva without giving any details the soldier was also was killed inside the saudi consulate in istanbul in october of last year and his body dismembered investigations by the u.n.
and turkey have pointed the finger at high ranking saudi officials well the barker is there at the conference and joins us live from geneva the need to tell us more about what the saudi human rights council have been saying. well the chair of the saudi arabian human rights commission only spoke for about twenty minutes but during those twenty minutes she opened a whole raft of questions really about the death of jamal khashoggi it does appear according to the saudis as if some sort of judicial process is taking place or has taken place within saudi arabia according to the commission the perpetrators have been quote brought to justice. but in the same statement it also sounded as if the legal process was actually ongoing as well there was no use of alleged or anything like that they were regarded very much as clearly perpetrators so implying that they are guilty of the crimes while at the same time. we also heard from the
delegation that as that the legal process is a still taking place in the country so at least three hearings have taken place. they these alleged perpetrators apparently have been able to have access to their lawyers param the ngos have been present also although we haven't had any confirmation from any ngo anywhere to say that that is indeed the case according to one international n.g.o.s human rights watch what we've heard today fails to inspire any confidence of tour here's what joan fisher from human rights watch had to say to me a bit on iran. well i think what we've heard from the international community is a clear call for an independent international inquiry into the murder murder of shoji we understand that there has been a process playing out within saudi arabia but it's equally clear that there are many unanswered questions including who ultimately was responsible for death who
who ordered it how high up it went we know that the special effects usually execution. has launched an independent inquiry of her own into the into the murder of khashoggi and we call upon saudi arabia as a member of the human rights council to cooperate with the council's own mechanisms including the special operator and ensure that they are willing to allow her access and to give her whatever information she needs in order to conduct that independent inquiry what we've seen from the outset since this whole whole saga became became public has a series of frustrations and denials by saudi arabia some cases where there are accounts simply do not fit the facts and so it's very difficult to have confidence in there and the narrative and that's why we're calling for an international independent inquiry so that the international community can and can rightfully esten the facts for itself now while all of this is going on naver ten human rights activists who say they have been tortured are set to stand trial in saudi arabia
not knowing what the charges against them are or even with them whether they've been given a lawyer so many of you know while all of that is taking place what's the reaction there how are people reacting to this saudi human rights council claims that they are taking care of their human rights issues. well i think across the board it's fair to say there's a tremendous amount of frustration amongst many members of the human rights council and that was very much echoed at the start of this session last week where thirty six different countries including every single e.u. member so all twenty eight states plus many western countries signed an unprecedented joint statement condemning what the council seizes human rights abuses the imprisonment of activists including many women's rights defenders some of whom had come pain heavily to allow women to be able to have the right to drive cars some of them who were named at the start of the session last week were
arrested a month before it then became legal for women to have driving licenses there's been lots of allegations leveled against the saudi government about having secret detention centers about torturing some of these individuals that have been arrested all of these allegations have been flatly denied by the saudis but n.g.o.s are increasingly worried that the extra judicial processes are taking place that court set up essentially to try terrorist. cases are being used instead to arbitrarily hold and prosecute civil rights activists so across the board real concern here. the ongoing response from the saudi authorities is pretty much to avoid the question that they're under increasing pressure to and so and that question of course is what have you done to improve the rights of people in your country. that human rights conference in
geneva thank you. now the political chief of the taliban has hailed the talks between the group and the united states. or they are has spoken for the first time since the talks ended on tuesday has obtained these exclusive pictures of the negotiations that has taken place in the qatari capital doha well up by there says the taliban will uphold the draft agreement reached during these negotiations the two sides made progress on foreign troop withdrawal and not allowing fighters to operate inside afghanistan. jarius new prime minister has been addressing the public for the first time since taking office there recently promoted nurdin but do we says he is forming a government of technocrats open to all is added that the government's mandate will not exceed one year the former interior minister was appointed prime minister this week after a mass protest force the ailing president adel izzy's beautifully cut to abandon

credible not credible to give this huge important task of change and democratic transition to the same people who have put us in a situation in the situation that we find ourselves in today the people in the street and something is the departure and it changed it clean cut we need a second algerian republic we need a different constitution with a constitutional committee that is legitimate that we trust we the people trust we are reminded every time they take a microphone and speak to us citizen we are reminded that we cannot trust them with change because they are enable of change they've been negotiating time one year before even the announcement of the delay they wanted one year one year to readapt readjust and maintain and retain the reins of power they are trying to reinvent
