11:22 pm
to rely on the internet to store our most treasured memories but first as millions of people are getting ready to vote in thailand's first election since a military coup in two thousand and fourteen we explore the high stakes and possible outcomes remember you can always leave your comments in the you tube chat as we look at this clip from al-jazeera scott heide learned bank. for decades thailand's youth has been politically active like in this parade held before the end you will rival football match between thailand's top universities it satirizes politics here and one of this year's targets the general election to be held sunday many taking part have become old enough to vote since the last election eight years ago. and with nearly seven million voting for the first time a form was held in bangkok to teach them how the process works. and why it's important for thailand. who want a free and fair election. not and not just any election that. makes someone
11:23 pm
to say that ok i've become a man because i'm elected it doesn't matter. what people believe in. for more on this i'm joined from bangkok by a private rosanna procures the senior journalist doghouse saad anglish private thank you so much for being with us i want to start with the basics i mean what makes this a very different election from those in the past. well for two reasons obviously as pointed out it's been. nearly five years since the military stated coup and ruled thailand as a military dictatorship so. this will come. a time when the people all get a chance to decide and. determine
11:24 pm
the fate of the future type politics secondly actually this is the first time in eight years that thais will get a chance to go earned nearly seven million out of. fifty one eligible voters will be voting for the first time and on top of that you have. been tallied. general prayuth genosha running as a. candidate to become prime minister of thailand again and. but i can go on and i will go on and what i want to go on with this is some of the concerns of the voters obviously there are many concerns a lot of people online trying in telling us what they are more more concerned about the knife for example on twitter saying breaking human rights watch thing that type of thailand's jointer has created conditions that obstruct free and fair elections people's right to choose their government are severely undermined do you agree with
11:25 pm
that statement and what do you make of all the concerns of this election essentially being regs and not being a fair election. well as i was just about to point out. there will be five hundred. lower housed or members aliments elected on sunday and on top of that. an added two hundred fifty will be selected and basically appointed by each into leader was bridget and to you that was the leader and a cool leader and who has a point made himself prime minister over the past year site years is competing as a prime ministerial candidate again and this two hundred sixty people that's going to be appointed by for you will take part in the vote that would select the next prime minister so one turtledove or basically has already been secured by your it so this is why lantern sound and that doesn't sound very rare does it sound fair to
11:26 pm
. well i think to say that it's not so it's an understatement it's an lopsided. unmet actions because one candidates are in the arse basically you know the power to appoint people will vote for him you know one turd of the people which is two hundred fifty hours of seven hundred. fifty people if you combine doest upper and lower houses and you know for those who don't know the intricate details of the constitution itself or even the history of thailand i think what will really you know resonate is a clip that we have which really illustrates how young people are testing the limits not only of speech lies but really pushing the boundaries of political discussion and it seems they have been rowing audience take a look. the public is starting to listen thanks to bands like
11:27 pm
rap against dictatorship their anthem condemning corruption politically impunity and the growing social divide went viral with close to sixty million views but. the rap troupe believe their songs popularity is the only reason they gyal one console and went on a little discussion is good and he should be free no one should fear being arrested or getting thrown into jail for talking about politics. private your reaction i mean obviously we know that video went viral do you think that's why they haven't been arrested you know we know many others who have spoken out in similar ways have been arrested what do you think this means for the youth vote it means to use feel that they have not been listened to and they want to have a role in shaping the future course of time and rightly so.
11:28 pm
and online public sphere. is growing. the internet has become a new public sphere that will that enables to. ty's mostly yone a lot of them young ties to deliberate condors and even air and teachin turn sentiment as you have shown you know the the fact that we have seen just. wrapped against dictatorship videos going viral with nearly sixty million border i mean sixty million viewers well you know the type elation is just south of seventy million so private means you're going yeah i was just going to say whatever happens i'm curious because a lot of people you know commentary you know varies on this issue berman you keep coming back to this fundamental fact that the military is going to be in charge alternately regardless of what happens is that true do you think. yes or no not
11:29 pm
just kill some possibility that the so-called troll democracy slashed and each entire camp could muster and. are say to reanimate seventy six forwards or slightly more out of seven really forwards that's going to be very difficult but it's still mathematically possibility are if the production type parties gains very hugh lower house boards then when they would need to enlist the support of the center which will be appointed. there will definitely not have the same level or mandate or legitimacy so it's still not a done deal first of all secondly even if it wins he will not have absolute power as he used to. as
11:30 pm
a gentle leader so he will become an elected prime minister but at the same time we also have to deal with the. the armed forces particularly the army which be a if it is a state bit in the states and there is strong penchant for states including tar the current has refused to commit himself publicly. in not staging a coup friends are not surprising but only time will tell ultimately private i want to thank you for taking the time to join us here at the stream thank you now shifting gears a look at the deadly cyclon that is completely devastated swaths of southeastern africa mozambique has borne the brunt of stormy day with hundreds of people feared dead the port city of berra has been virtually destroyed by floodwaters are disease as malcolm webb filed this report from has been a bear. when winds ripped the roof tile we received tollways house she
11:31 pm
was terrified she ran outside in the torrential rain we've had children just collapsed. that we were very afraid we were panicking but there was nothing else to do except move outside now i have nothing but i don't even have money to build a new house somewhere. she is among dozens of families who are now sheltering in school he wouldn't a town of this barrier in mozambique had been homeless need i went to cross the country after reaching mozambique's coast on thursday. many villages and now completely cut off. al-jazeera as malcolm webb has been covering the aftermath of the cyclon in mozambique he joins us from the city of timor you and then geneva we have matthew cochrane he's the spokesperson for the international federation of red cross and red crescent societies gentlemen thank you for being with us i want to
11:32 pm
start by asking you malcolm where are the efforts i mean how would you categorize this given all you've been witnessing on the ground there very good i mean. i'm just wondering i mean where are the efforts now in terms of being able to provide the immediate aid that people who are victims of this are. but you know mike you'd be able to kind of a bit more about the specifics certainly what we've seen in the western part of the country people that we see tomorrow night out that. i mean that's not surprising given that most of the right to be cut off. the car is. playing to it because larry it's not because of stranded people stuck in trees stuck on the roofs of houses actually understand. there have been to be focused on rescuing those people who were stranded. on the barrier to the report from
11:33 pm
the chile where we are now through some of the central region it's very hard. luck there how do you get failed after failed the crops completely obliterated by the wind and by the rain and by flash flooding flash flooding from the river. definitely a people right now and then for a month or maybe even a year ahead is going to be a very serious problem. very many married in an island burial where they can suffer flooding field after field of crops extraordinary many people here at the moment because their food supply for the you know the destroyed fields of course and matthew you know hearing now come outlined some of those issues i can only think of you know the water borne diseases and all the kind of protracted issues that then emerge in the next you know few months and years obviously you're familiar with kind of the scale of the devastation but for our viewers who may not be i want to
11:34 pm
share this tweet from dippy batna gar the data sea came into the land and destroyed everything in its path it really just gives you a sense just one week difference you can see all this area here all the edges zoomed in there for you all that black just to really give you a sense of how much destruction was on the ground i'm curious though matthew i mean what would you say is the most urgent need right now. yeah. well i mean the the most urgent need right now is such a rescue saving lives that still many thousands of people on rooftops or on hillsides so even in trees and the priority i think of many organizations on the ground you know led by the government is to is to get those people to safety speaking to a colleague early today there's a sense that perhaps and hopefully some water is because the water is beginning to recede and it's not raining at the moment or so it wasn't when when we were speaking so hopefully that means that. the search and rescue efforts become
11:35 pm
a little less urgent and the focus can turn to providing this humanitarian assistance that that is desperately needed this malcolm said there are countless communities that that haven't been reached in terms of the scale i mean i don't know if this is usual certainly was for me but a colleague explained to me today that the amount of the area flooded is is roughly equivalent to the size of the state of rhode island it's a it's a huge area it's almost like the ocean like the earth was tipped in the ocean poured into most and they can and you know there was a period there where entire areas are under meters of water where there was no distinguishable landscape it was it was simply just waters are and it's and matthew you know as you're outlining that and making that comparison for american viewers who know the size of rhode island i mean that is huge i mean it's a huge area of land but for those who aren't familiar this to this tweet that just came in or a comment on you tube men are saying and speaking to exactly what you're talking about saying i don't think it has gotten the level of response a disaster should get though india sent some humanitarian aid some big steps need
11:36 pm
to be taken to prevent more destruction would you agree with that assessment just given your experience in general in this field. yes completely completely again i mean i couple days ago there was a sense that the world hadn't really woken up to what had happened you know that whatever reason. no one it really anticipated how big this disaster was going to be and in fairness the disaster is it's complicated because it's it's also speaking about flooding that preexisted this i climbed in with speaking about ali vulnerable communities that perhaps people weren't really aware of but it's probably well i think now i mean let's be positive it's now yeah now i think we can say that the world does realize but that realisation has to be followed by action of course and you know we're talking about action or the lack thereof i know that malcolm obviously you're there on the ground and you know having covered some natural
11:37 pm
disasters myself i remember hurricane maria in puerto rico sometimes you come across things that just jar you that strike you that move you that surprise you that shock you is there anything you can share with us that you've you've experienced on the ground covering this that you think is important for people to know. the first thing that was very striking. we were due to fly into the day before division and that was last friday. but then i came was coming in quick. actually came in to the council we tried to get in. the capital of neighboring zimbabwe instead and then driving from that there was i mean around the border the. very strong wind really strong much stronger than normal. and then followed by wrenching rain more rain than the scene when you could imagine that this pretty much doesn't stop for
11:38 pm
day of course the train. this was actually where. driving the car in a house. and of course his own ability to. under the. fact that they're living in very simple structure is made of bricks made of iron sheets on the roofs many of them in. three days a very. strong wind. very easily knocked down to be completed. at the same and right and in north america where the building right most definitely and that's that's an important point to raise but you know i also want to share with our audience a clip which really demonstrates not just in mozambique but the challenges that these type of countries share point as compared with western countries or i should say a country like america you know what they struggle with when they try to alleviate the most extreme after a fact of severe weather it's in zimbabwe which was also of course they had by cycle on a day take a look at this rescuing people when they badly they can be extremely difficult the
11:39 pm
helicopter is trying to take off and some of these people have been waiting for days to hear news about their loved ones they don't know whether they are alive. going to die is a worse storm tates about this in fact many of the nearly twenty years ago some zimbabwean say government officials have reacted faster and some part natural disaster we are a very existing structure. that give us a little that to people we prepared but the magnitude of what it was and imaginable is a new lane is we go forward i think that's an important point to end on right there malcolm matthew thank you for sharing your thoughts with us and for all your work. now a trip down memory lane a one time social media giant is back in the headlines this week but sadly for all the wrong reasons my space confirmed that it has lost all content uploaded to the site before two thousand and sixteen so yes that's millions of songs videos and
11:40 pm
photos that have been forever deleted my space says the data was lost during a server migration that went wrong now the beverly hills headquartered company was once the most visited site in the united states but has long since been surpassed of course by facebook and well most other social platforms that we all use the huge deletion of user data has raised questions however of how far companies can be trusted to manage the kind of content that is often deeply personal to say the very least joining us now to discuss all this from beacon new york is jason scott he's an archivist and technology historian and is the creator of text files dot com which archives files from bulletin board system. jason so many questions for you but what does this actually mean i mean i personally know what it means because it means i can access songs that i made when i was seventeen that i'll never be able to make again because for reasons that don't matter to anybody watching this
11:41 pm
program but what does it mean to you what does this mean for all of us i guess it's pretty deep actually because we as people create things we collaborate we have discussions we get involved with each other you know not just creating say songs or or sharing things that we found online but we actually like you know put our own history and it's where we know what we are and sometime between the late one nine hundred ninety two thousand we start to see companies offering us platforms to do that and now we just think of the social media but what it really is is we just told companies take everything we create directly from our phones and our minds and store them for us and we'll all work out what we do next later yeah. and later it's starting to show up now that later is another problem right i mean so so so what can you tell us when it's later than the later that we're in now what can we do to protect and you know these precious memories and all this history and tell you about i think the fundamental thing to understand is that there was
11:42 pm
a business model decision made in the late ninety's that the way to grow the internet was to give everybody free access like we want to adopt cars give everybody a car this is actually what we did with credit cards in america we just gave away credit cards with no restrictions just to get it off the ground and now we're at a point that people are going what's this free thing i have and also some people are saying well of course it's always going to be free and that's when you start to have the scandals with advertisers and tracking because somebody has got to pay for it well i think what's going to happen is that people need to realize that these phones and desktops they're using to save their memories they're ending up on places automatically and they aren't being asked to get it back out again or to understand or for people to understand where their materials are sitting and i think that it's time you got to take some level of awareness and responsibility you
11:43 pm
know it's like it's like places like facebook and google they're like electricity you don't think about them until things brownout or flicker and i'd say it's probably a good idea to start assessing how much of your you know really family history and personal creation is what i'm worried about your own music your family's lore your history you and your aunt you never talk so you talked on facebook i always talk to my hand but the point is the point is we have a lot of people concerned now obviously about the platforms that they currently care about right whether it's facebook twitter instagram like we all have a preferential platform and you know we look at reclusive busybody which is a very compelling twitter name in of itself on twitter saying it's sad that a lot of artists. their work or lost their work i should say but on a personal level i don't remember my password for it and i've wanted to delete my account for a long time it finally happened but at a cost to everyone else so i'm ok with that but sad to those who lost their work so
