4:21 am
hi i'm femi oke a and you are in the stream today what is the gun lobby hiding away take an in-depth look at the latest groundbreaking film from al jazeera as investigative unit how to sell a massacre cover. a three year investigation into the pro-gun lobby believe me i'm going to really. reveal secrets so you were. sitting out there that we have people our age you know. and connections some don't
4:22 am
want to expose sneak in legacy media. mass shooting. documents with night al-jazeera investigations how to sell a massacre. the very divisive gun debate is a global issue in the new zealand where the country is still reeling from a massacre that killed fifty people by minnesota yes in the arden announced to a ban on the sale of assault rifles a military style semi automatic weapons the law is expected to be in place by april they are modeling their gun policy on their neighbor australia where the law restricts the private ownership or semiautomatic rifles and shotguns implemented after a mass shooting in one thousand nine hundred ninety six in port arthur tasmania when a gunman went on a rampage killing thirty five people and wounding twenty three the deadliest shooting in australian history the result was the national firearms program
4:23 am
implementation act and a mandatory firearm buyback scheme in the united states where perhaps the world's fiercest debate on gun control rages the powerful national rifle association or n.r.a. enjoys huge influence with us from sydney to tell us about this film and some of the findings peter charlie is an executive producer in the al jazeera investigative unit or so in sydney philip alpers associate professor at the university of sydney school of medicine and founding director of gun policy dot org and in auckland new zealand siena brown davis founding member of peace action that's a grassroots campaign good to have you here with us everybody peter the idea for this documentary eye catching title how to sell a massacre when did you decide you're going to make this film what was the prompt. well you know began in two thousand and fifteen in fact when i was driving from washington d.c. abdullah's international airport and on that journey as you would know you passed
4:24 am
the n.r.a. building in fairfax virginia i happened to be driving past the building at the very moment i heard on my car radio a report of another mass killing and i looked across at the building and thought what an earth are they saying in that building about this event because we know the n.r.a. is very aggressive towards the media they have after the sandy hook massacre for example describe journalists as as coconspirators in the in the killing they take a very aggressive stance towards journalists and journalism generally so honored to find out what they thought in an unguarded fashion so i figured out a way of getting into the organization by creating a so-called gun rights advocacy group based in a strange philip what did you already know about the n.r.a. inside the n.r.a. . i've been following the national rifle association for about twenty three is
4:25 am
around the world now i'm involved in a couple of united nations persis is which which i aimed at reducing the toll of gun deaths globally and i realized that the national rifle association was had a high powered lawyer was paying him a lot of money to travel around the world trying to do a rail every possible pot of the united nations initiatives and we spoke against each other in places like slovenia and and and so paulo brazil and i heard him making the most extraordinary suggestions for example that. that all of these countries around the world needed was the second amendment to the united to the constitution a copy of it and that that they for example that if they kept on doing this that the united states would simply defund the united nations if they kept on trying to
4:26 am
to cook gun deaths around the world so it's this is part of a global movement and the national rifle association can be relied upon to interfere in all sorts of countries they've done so in canada brazil south africa australia and new zealand and we see quite a lot of their influence here so in how to sell a massacre pages i think it was let's go in sunlight right how did they do it and did it seems a little strong to me how to look. right a mile here from. we don't have al right so it's got out as diluted and they've just come out with legislation that picks on farmers gun crime has been decreasing at a steady right in the meantime on all the social media. roger has a reputation for high level connections within the pro-gun community united states
4:27 am
including senior executives such as chris cox from the national rifle association. no no not at all it's about. roger has made it clear to america's gun lobby that he wants guns in the hands of a stranger here and would pay to you treat the n.r.a. how did you go about creating a person who was so believable that the and i took them in the past will private conversations and the strategy meetings well i started. looking very closely at the rhetoric and as an australian. they were caught up in mexico that you referenced earlier. and it's been a constant refrain from the n.r.a. that the national firearms agreement that emerged after the put out the massacre is
4:28 am
a forward document. it should be repealed poses a danger to america's second amendment if u.s. politicians follow suit and there have been multiple references from the us hillary clinton barrack about her and others have mentioned the studies experiences something that should be perhaps looked at or followed in some respect in the united states the n.r.a. hates this so i decided to find a way to present and a story and who. held similar views and australian whose position was that the national firearms agreement in his trailer had gone too far and needed to be pulled back a bit so we were sort of singing from the same hymn book as it were and the n.r.a. welcomed him in. i want to go through a date which is nine hundred ninety six and this four straight ends is see it and
4:29 am
then memory a full nine hundred ninety six when a there was a mass shooting in tasmania i want to remind you an international audience if you don't remember this you don't know this here's some news footage from that time this footage is also in the documentary how to sell a mask have a look at. the death toll continues to rise at. random shooting spree the nightmare unfolded around half. the. price going to be real be a real challenge keeping his victims in the spirit great. proposes to soften put in place following a massacre in. six. i've never heard it before maybe it was that. scene of this is famous in
4:30 am
a in gone control legislation around the world what australia did almost immediately there were also recommendations for new zealand in one thousand nine hundred seven just a year off to that massacre in. australia and new zealand didn't react. and till just now why either wasn't the political will and there was also an inquiry into the illegal position of firearms that new zealand government had in two thousand and seven tane so they were road maps and recommendations that even should have been implemented then i think. apprised the government because they used the opportunity of what's a premisses terrorist attack to strongly make that move towards can control bit of light than if but not enough yet also i think we need to really work on not only the. some sounds but the it illogical bullets of what supreme is say of
4:31 am
crisis of xenophobia what the humanizes people what provides an atmosphere where what supreme assist terrorists can commit these acts of like fallen people of color as an indigenous woman these messages and acts of fresh was violence are nothing new for us i'm quite we're left an aboriginal stralia full treaty is and messages were a common occurrence on aboriginal people in the colonial times so we'll done at assessing on twitter they should have put in place talking about new zealand gun reform laws long ago because terror attacks like this that persistent they happened in countries like the us canada france so even if it's not an attack on muscle churches if they see a fire on your friends down as the water on your ass as a house a proverb there philip why does it take so long long for countries to actually after an attack what is take so long for them to say hey this this could happen in
4:32 am
our country this could happen in our region. it takes a massacre unfortunately it takes a boeing next eight to fall out of the sky before anybody does anything about it that's the way humans are in australia in one thousand nine hundred six port arthur was just the last of a long string of gun massacres more than one hundred five people australians had been shot dead the incoming prime minister who was the most conservative that australia had had in years john howard took only twelve days to completely up in all of the state gun laws right across the country eight separate jurisdictions and pushed the premiers of the police ministers into the national firearms agreement that banned all semiautomatic cent of rifles and shotguns which were the weapon of choice for mass killers and the result of that was a huge buyback more than in the end more than
4:33 am
a million firearms were destroyed that was thirty percent of the stock of guns in australia for example in the united states if you wanted to do the same you'd have to destroy in ninety million guns it was a huge effort and the result of that was that after the those laws were introduced and those guns were destroyed the risk of a an australian dying by gun shot dropped by more than fifty percent and stayed there for twenty two years in that in all of those years we have not had another message except a domestic shooting last year where of hama a licensed gun in a shot his family of six so we it it seems to have worked in australia let me say this this again is commenting on what's happening in new zealand right now it's a very fast action earth dog fifty eight c.m.'s as an outstanding example of what government should be the exactly the right response has seemed odd and has behaved in an exemplary way throughout supporting victims and their families and the
4:34 am
government has made the correct decision with no fuss. that's a stock you know it's a start i was quite astute. even before some of the people win period from the terrorist attack that the in iraq i had breached that media saying that they were coming down here to support and i know so that shocked me a complete contempt and like a few humanity for people in this country that raving i think it's a start i think we need to push to make sure that the implement all of the recommendations that were made in two thousand and seventeen there are one point five million guns in new zealand and we don't know with all the fighting around a registration price states is very lax and the what has happened after the mexican is that it's opened up the spice where we can fondly talk honestly about prices and we can funny to honestly about the growth of what supremacy and what
4:35 am
extremist groups in this country because our intelligence services have ignored these groups for the past fifteen years. created one of the things that you found as you would do in your undercover work was that the n.r.a. were not ok with australia as the way the story is often thought about in the column control debate inside look at a strategy as if they did this back in ninety six any country can do that then i were not happy about this let me just show a little moment where i think about well how can we give more gun rights back to australians have a look through you probably. because we're trying to everything this. is excited about traveling to the u.s. and what a meeting with might deliver. to get through. three million dollars are going to. say to the sheriff might be. true we are.
4:36 am
going to decision later. paid and i have to say to be fair this is not the n.r.a. just going out to australia and saying what what trouble that they can create one nation is actually talking to the n.r.a. they want to what together one nation is a very conservative party in australia. how much of that did you already know before you started investigating we had no idea that one nation was interested in the n.r.a. or had any connection to the n.r.a. in fact we first learned to one nation's interest well a connection between the n.r.a. and one nation through an article in queensland newspaper pointing to the fact that the n.r.a. had. supported a group that had donated money to one nation i was interested in finding out whether one nation had any direct contact at that point with the n.r.a.
4:37 am
whether the n.r.a. was working through one nation to win floyd's policy in australia so we approached one nation and they expressed very strong interest in making all approaches contacts in the us so we all live on you tube right now conversation is very robust and they know things as i have a question for if i guess if a starting gun laws are loose and do you think that something like nine hundred ninety six could happen god forbid how the one nation party then we act and we start with then it could happen again. certainly it could happen again there are still plenty of firearms in australia australia is a nation there are lots of legitimate reasons for owning guns here a lot of pests to be shot. there and a vibrant sporting community in shooting sports the problem is that availability unfortunately. often ends up in the glick and one nation would do the same as the
4:38 am
n.r.a. shut up for the first few days but then they'd stop saying well it's not have a kneejerk reaction people need to defend themselves women need a gun to avoid being raped they're a very ill islamophobia right wing insensitive political party. and too stringently anti immigration and they wouldn't have they would demonstrate very very little sympathy for any argument that might reduce the availability of firearms in fact they would suggest that we need more and more gun show and. i just wanted that a little clip again from the documentary phillips said that as well that's a mistake in the n.r.a. i don't want him i don't use to think that he's just saying this without any knowledge of it so when he went on to cover this is what you heard have a listen. we're not even allowed to own guns or started to self-protection treatment you know even last night if you can slam it we've been hearing it was me
4:39 am
just got it we have already gotten coming to you like you're going to twenty five and we really kind of. like you know who can spot house baseball bats and truing people might be stealing their everything they are carrying it in their countries going to jail. just back to that question again from mendelssohn could nine hundred ninety six happen again if the n.r.a. and. assigns who want more gun rights got together could another massacre happen again in australia hasn't been a level one since one thousand nine hundred six. well it's logical to assume that guns were made available the chances of the massacre would increase it's it's very clear to all australians i think that the not in ninety six law was introduced after court have made history as. one nation made it very clear in their meetings
4:40 am
with the n.r.a. that they disagreed with those laws or what the laws rolled back or even reversed which i personally find very troubling as an israeli and i do feel that the israeli and people are so because of the laws and the laws of real who are versed i think the chances for mexico would naturally increase seen i want to share this with exam and treat just to if you're here in this kind of. rhetoric and in new zealand and this comes from michael to heart and he says the n.r.a. on youtube right now they and i have fifteen million members there are over one hundred million gun owners in the u.s. those hundred million will not relent our second amendment period that second amendment is the right to carry arms are you hearing any pushback in new zealand about how fast the gun laws are changing. not because our country is still in mining i'm actually. writing for that to come but as our.
4:41 am
house speakers have said i think people like the one nation party and pauline hanson they provide a political atmosphere of encouraging rice ism of encouraging xenophobia of charging prices stripes and steerer top end of same the rise this is like what the other side of gun control and out here or anything that we've seen the rise of the right wing and both countries really following a similar path of the united states and by thought governments have been reluctant to do anything to stop the radicalization of what supreme assists and by the countries and the government actually. i think is a museum using the cheese but he was originally from the strike. i'm just wondering peter as you were making this documentary mass shootings were happening during a period of making this documentary. you were getting more and more examples as you
4:42 am
were actually filming what's the takeaway for you from this film as people watching it because you had no idea that there would be a mashing in new zealand that would happen but now people are using your film in looking at the film as an example of what possibly could happen. well one thing i found very very interesting and actually quite chilling was when one nation turned washington and met with you in iraq there were briefed in code by the in a row in play book a how to respond to a massacre. laid out very specific. words to be used they pushed a very specific line for how to manipulate the media to ensure gun friendly coverage for example those said to one no should if there is a massacre another massacre in australia if the gun goes herself and you have to shame people who are opposed to guns showing them and push back
4:43 am
so you do you stand on the graves of children being killed to push your political platform i found that actually deeply chilling and deeply offensive do you think i would share this view when this is a comment about looking at all of the examples that you've been sharing looking at the gun control debate this is one conclusion that one member fact community came to have a listen have a look documented is scripted in the history of racism genocide and western imperial expansion we need to stop tweeting and start swinging shutting down the economy and shutting down streets and staying in the streets we cannot confront the second amendment in a piecemeal way we must rescinded in totality let me also add to that this tweet here from kay go karting you obviously have no idea what it takes to amend the e.p.a. or constitutional amendment the us is a republic new zealand is a parliamentary democracy learn the difference so the idea of the example that
4:44 am
australia has set the example that new zealand has set in terms of semi automatic weapons that could not really happen in the us that's not possible feeling your thoughts. no it's not possible you couldn't do it in the united states largely because of the ideological divide the n.r.a. has to be explained to people outside the united states that people just don't realize how extreme they are and how dedicated they are they've already visited new zealand australia south africa european countries canada trying to bring in an n.r.i. trying to create a global in ira i've watched them do it and their idea is to spread the second amendment of the united states right around the world they don't they're the only country in the world that has such an amendment everybody else has instituted this cheap pillars of gun control a gun and

5:01 am
when roger introduced himself to james ashby and told him about his powerful us context the one nation chief of staff said he wanted to meet the. people he thought might fund the party as it prepares for the polls. with the promise to loosen the strain used on the rules. you guys. look at a special guest that i state dixon is the head of the one nation party here in queensland and a senate candidate they don't stay at for pleasure to match. so i stay futilely a little bit more about the one nation gun policy first right before we are we are pro-gun when people in this country on and on one nation's proposed review were drunk it was was devised by steve dixon. he's a former state government minister now one nation's party leader in queensland. he's running for a seat in the senate in a straight coming elections i had a week actually mike the difference between you know and. all the tactical and

5:03 am
you know but really why go well i mean one of us right here the two got is that was our weather conditions here. are it we're going to run. well. dixon says he dreams of changing a stray used gun laws to make them more like those in america. well enough to watch them break away. but there are more one bottle of the stuff ok operator life of every it wanted night to do it how much you find out it is yours it's what it's like barter to be quiet kid in the game he's going to be ready. if you package it up with some other good lords of finance for governor perry said perry. the death toll continues to rise at port arthur where a gunman today when time random shooting spree the nightmare unfolded around hot
5:04 am
coffee you just commuting to get in a cafe but come before me in the top five right gunmen stormed around the area unchallenged keeping his victims in this town of going. to lose dixon proposes to soften up put in place following a message to a new strain in town of port arthur in one hundred ninety six. i'd never heard it got in the fall so my immediate thought was that it was a cop that are. in what was then one of the worst measure routings ever recorded in the world so he five people were mowed. i'm saying people. being shot and then i saw him and he had this massive very. large military waffle. and he was coming up behind my daughter. the killer was using an a.o.l.
5:05 am
fifteen assault rifle it would become a weapon of choice in mass killings in america for years to come. no one's running no one's screaming. but with every show. well that's five is another life gone. and there's another life goal and it's not a life gone. and you feel you're right most. it will cost myself and my daughter i'm on the floor she's in the back. and he shot my two shot in the back. and i could see his fate asked me. do you trust that he lived to a swift and ready to reveal his trade use candles. i will do everything humanly possible to get an effect i mean open gun control situation in this country most would find
5:06 am
it. absolutely out except. that weapons of his car and our bubble of all of us every automatic automatic and simeon automatic firearms were banned and in what became known as the national firearms agreement more than six hundred fifty thousand guns were destroyed. the gun laws are probably a standout social reform not in not its stride and in fact the global is significant because a striker is able to demonstrate a before and after a chimes of the sky in the run up to the port arthur massacre the struggle was trying to sign liberal and right metrics as the americans but since not in ninety six and zero pressure of people but not known to be silent in stride. the poet author of paints is etched into the minds of anyone with a lot at that time it was
5:07 am
a pivotal event to establish saif gunnels for australia at the national far as agreement covers everything from the style of our arms the ownership the responsible use of. it's. and it's very very fun and that will strike some crowd and it keeps us safe. much we want to follow. that is really the nuts and bolts because we chummed everything that. one nation is excited about traveling to the u.s. and what a meeting with the n.r.a. might deliver you can use them to get a pretty good thing up when you get through you're. right three million dollars a week when he said question say to the senate you might be a good model michael we are going to go you need on your leg
5:08 am
a decision today. dixon asks for guidance on how best to deal with the american gun lobby. it's better that we not you know but frankly if getting on a guy. just for you that's not a reason we got. that i don't want to try to stop some really good is right up and up able i can get a good i've given that with the muscle. i asked roger to help secure the eno raise indorsements of pulling henson. we need to fix one to them this is about the suspect in china getting your food medical we get stronger they can actually work and we grew up with you know out of spite in the wider you know it's right because one of the investment you know it's a bunch of little shot with a much bigger ones too much difference maybe. it's the left wing anti gunners who literally point to australia using the mainstream media as the shining model as to
5:09 am
why we need gun bans and gun confiscation. the n.r.a. is so troubled by his trail use strict firearms laws that it's targeted the issue in videos like this. suggesting that a stranger's national firearms agreement is a failure and must be scrapped the america we have for an american will not stand for a government any gov trampling our rights. dixon says that by funding is social media campaign the n.r.a. could promote one nation without handing over any cash. we can get a million dollars fuck you what sort of stuff i don't. i don't even need the funding i just need one if we get one that's rush just for us. i don't need to touch them. that way the in a ray would promote one nation social media content while providing cover for their
5:10 am
financial contributions to even. if they have the cottage country it will give them the option to need more than that and they were i mean it. is due to dickson believes that as a veteran politician he knows how to make deals like that have been. on. each experience and the more troops you know in the turning. on the. really whatever it is goes on maybe. it will say oh. it's that and then we got to go. get it out of the know it. in all of history there's always been a time in a place when patriots stand up and rise up against the decree of the elites and shout no more. and the n.r.a.
5:11 am
convention in twenty sixteen roger witnessed the power of the gun lobby's messaging and influence in u.s. politics. i'm officially announcing the n.r.a. is indorsement of donald trump for president. ah. my sons have been members of the n.r.a. for many many years and they're incredible they have so many rifles and so many guns sometimes even i get a little bit concerned that it has a lot. to would be president follows a will go on and i write a script america's second amendment the right of us citizens to carry a gun is under threat. and he will make sure nobody in the takes anybody's guns away. i will not let you down remember that i will not.
5:12 am
buy. the messaging to the gun community increasingly has been built on fear government's going to take away your guns they often use the united nations as a demon as they have demonized and hillary clinton and bill clinton before them and using fear to gin up support fund raising new members and guns. hillary clinton wants to abolish the second amendment just remember that we're not talking about change if she wants to abolish the second amendment so when i get a lead that happened i can tell you that right now. from the inside roger learns the n.r.a. has played influencing public opinion. i.
5:13 am
think the states a bit so maybe you should be right and we're going to fight. me. when one nation landed in washington d.c. roger was there to meet them oh i got you know i think it's safe to say you know he had set up meetings for dixon and ashby using his gun lobby contacts as diode drivers and i could tell you again yes he's dickson's visit to the united states. what i call the big thing the middle east feel that the big apple is that is the washington monument. and. the truth is time so they can attend one of the gun lobby's most influential

. oh times my mom. got caught. the one nation visitors till potential donors to their party that they want to change jungle was back. the people them in their country it's really yours but it's wrong because. dixon discusses the strenuous firearms laws with congressman ted but here we are back to the much profit from the population working the gun powder which the american committee and every time he gives congressman a warning the banning of automatic weapons in a stretch is the beginning of a trend that threatens to take hold in the u.s. yet the bill whether or not. when you think that you'll be there. you get
5:17 am
a look at the body of the. playoffs so i can honestly. say for that if that's what's you know it's you know might. make it a bigger except for. the benefit of having a little. will it work it will. impart to one of the nation gets advice from the n.r.a. on how to sell a message or smear the critiques of gun ownership. groups of children but workable. and they discuss how many gun lobby cash would effect one nation's chances in the upcoming elections you would own a lot of house after the pet of the other got all of. this powerful social network in sculpting a global cyber society and regulation is playing catch up but of scandals begin to

we're fighting in the presidential front senator on how to run i guess we just can't afford to take a step back and. you concentrate on one of the views we want to strategically let you have the most impact. is to try to realistically strategically decide are there some politician who can't be correct in. one nation has james ashby knows how a stranger would react if it ever learned that the party was asking for american gun money he gets if i'm. wrong about. this it does for my degree seem to me that ok. so his meetings in washington were to be kept secret also he sort. of mentioned old in north america but i think it might actually sink one national as a political force in astride

sufficient support in the house to bring back the deal for a third vote. u.k. prime minister to resign may accepts defeat on her deal for the moment but remains determined to see of plans by rebel m.p.'s to seize control of brics it no clear winner yet in thailand's first election since a military coup five years ago and how america's gun lobby is working to influence policy outside of the u.s. and al-jazeera investigation into the n.r.a. is australia connection. and sport we'll have the latest from euro two thousand and twenty qualifying as world champions france take on iceland looking to make it two wins from two. welcome to the program our top story has been a further escalation in the exchange of fire across the gaza israel border with at
5:50 am
least ten rockets launched from the strip into southern israel now this comes after israeli jets hit hamas targets including the offices of hamas leader ismail haniyeh israel also mobilized ground forces near the gaza border latest reports claim a cease fire has been brokered by egypt but reports of explosions are continuing earlier in the day a rocket fired from gaza struck a home in central israel wounding seven people israel will not. and will mortal. and as we speak. as i told you mr. israel is responding forcefully to this want to immigration. i have a simple message to israel's enemies we will do whatever we must do to defend our people and defend our states well harry force it is live for us now on
5:51 am
the israel gaza border and harry there were these reports of a cease fire in gaza brokered by egypt but developments on the ground perhaps contradict that. well yes we started getting these reports maybe an hour and a half ago and then statements coming from hamas officials saying that yes a ceasefire had been reached with the help of egyptian mediation one must official even talking about schools and ministries reopening in gaza from tomorrow morning but just in the last few minutes we've seen a series of rockets being fired out from the gaza strip towards this area we heard some interceptions again and even while we've been on air we've heard some more distant booms which suggest that the israeli air strikes continue and that is the message we've been getting from our colleagues inside gaza that beyond this ten pm local time a cease fire which is over an hour ago now but there have been continued israeli airstrikes now that's not to say that there hasn't been
5:52 am
a cease fire agreed we have seen in previous occasions such as this escalation such as this that there is a gradual drawing down as opposed to an immediate end to the exchanges but certainly there is yet to be a positive and to this latest round indeed the israeli military said that this was just the start of a major military operation all of it in response to that initial rocket fire coming from gaza a rocket fired at a house or hitting a house northeast of tel aviv injuring a family of seven and it's all coming at a time when benjamin netanyahu the israeli prime minister is fighting an extremely hard fought election battle against his main opponent a former army chief who's been criticizing among other things his policies and his position his attempts to contain gaza so all of that would suggest that
5:53 am
a fairly major israeli military operation was in the works for him to abandon so quickly as a cease fire at ten pm on the same day as took my. people by surprise for now though it does appear to be going on as you say significant targets inside gaza have already been hit thank you for now on the israel gaza border harry forsett with all the latest. al-jazeera arabic correspondent was at the scene of one of the as strikes in gaza at the thought. that this is the result of one of the israeli air strikes that has a residential building here in central gaza the first floor of the building hosted the headquarters of the insurance company the top floors were residential apartments which had been fully destroyed but residents had hardly any time to escape the strike fleeing the building only minutes before it was destroyed by israeli jets the house was hit first by a number of drone missiles then israeli jets fully destroyed it civil defense and
5:54 am
ambulances have arrived in this area is full of residential buildings it's in such buildings in central gaza is a sign of an escalation. well i'm joined now via skype from gaza by the palestinian journalist sami abu salim thank you for taking the time to speak to us now we have been hearing these reports confirmed by palestinian sources of a possible agreement between israel and palestinian factions what can you tell us about the situation there in gaza right now. regarding thank you regarding their situation a couple of minutes ago maybe three or eleven in fifty years of time i have hearing explosions i look from the balcony there was some spots and explosions in the sky by following the news it was some rockets or one rocket from gaza was moving towards israel and the israeli. dome. so we have
5:55 am
hear explosions that is the latest military action maybe but before that also that it is things we have hear some bombing israeli bombings in of in areas and that is remarrying open fire in your hand you move. towards houses and fish or fish or boat fishing boats and. that it is that it is military actions and that is that so far according to your minister we have those seven people have been dead but also regarding the palestinian side we have received music from the joint the chambre palestinian business and factions they claimed responsibility also about shooting some green it's all rockets the words. and they say. in retaliation of that is that even the at tacks on gaza and there so they.
5:56 am
they fit it in by saying that if the israeli attacks would continue we would continue retaliation so it is all been lifted and we have new we have news that mr blair had are known or the advisor over the head of him as announced that there is a truce a truce the egyptian mediator succeeded to reach a truce. but the israeli side is so far the officials i mean. well israel is saying. that it had to respond because of the rocket that was fired from gaza northeast of tel aviv and that hit a home injuring a family of seven and two children were among those injured. are there concerns fears now that there might be more of an offensive an incursion that encroaches more deeply into gaza. regarding the us there are
5:57 am
that's why i have seen some people ordinary people rush to the supermarket stores to buy some canned food and some some stuff because the expect that this is coming and this coalition is coming this is about the ordinary people and in june are also people that are afraid that we are going to defy a new war like the last one in two thousand and fourteen with at least two thousand palestinians were killed and if you it exists in the streets among people but people have nothing to do actually just waiting waiting for the very thing for very this thing but officially we expect that this commission will be limited because of the measures a fusion of the situation will have some elections there live there and nobody is going to make its coalition and maybe this rocket which hit the levee evil which
5:58 am
destroyed the how. by the way of the palestinian factions did not. confirm or. they are not but it's once a bill for that nobody claim that it's what the what the about you know the rocket but the rocket did come from from that area that thank you very much appreciate your thoughts joining us there from gaza sami abu salim thank you. well the launch of the strikes came as the united states officially recognized israel's claim to solve n.t. over the occupied golan heights donald trump signed a presidential proclamation after meeting israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu israel sees the strategically important area in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven and is occupied it ever since our diplomatic editor james bays reports . the u.n. secretary general here in new york is watching the situation in gaza with great concern. he's long warned of the dangers of a new conflict new conflict now on the way the secretary general is gravely
5:59 am
concerned by the latest developments regarding gaza today's firing of a rocket from gaza towards israel is a serious and unacceptable violation we're also wear of the latest reports of firing on gaza in a monitoring events we urge all sides to exercise maximum restraint the second very moment the secretary general spokesman was briefing reporters president trump was signing his declaration recognizing israel's sovereignty over the goal and a direct challenge to the international consensus on the issue for the secretary general it is clear that the status of golan is not change the u.s. policy on the golan is reflected in the relevant resolutions of the security council you may notice a reticence to criticize president trump even though there's little doubt his proclamation is in breach of international law this will be a difficult issue too for the u.s. is close allies on the u.n. security council which meets to discuss israel palestine on choose day since the
6:00 am
start of the trumpet ministration the council has allowed the u.s. to lead diplomacy on this file but there is growing unease among diplomats on gaza don't expect any action other than council members adding their voices to the calls for restraint on gaulin don't expect any action a tall other council members of very unhappy about president trump's decision but even if they wanted to come up with a statement condemning it the u.s. would block it james pays out his era of the united nations here at the news hour live from london more still ahead for you. i pray to god that i can get ten to twenty reality. a day struggle the real. of life is so many yemeni people off to four years of war. an emotional goodbye to the volunteer who died trying to help after the iraq ferry disaster. and then later in sport one of baseball's most

sought after players is it a financial one ron the details of a. british prime minister to resign may holding another vote on her deal for leaving the european union may told parliament that she doesn't have enough support from m.p.'s to pass the withdrawal agreement but she's fighting plans by a group of rebel m.p.'s to seize control of prices charlie angela reports. he resigned to go to harvard arriving for a crisis cabinet meeting to discuss what happens next politicians from the ruling conservative party trying to find a way forward. think prime minister treason may acknowledge there isn't currently enough support to push through parliament for a third time that made out the options available unless this house agrees to it no
6:02 am
deal would not happen no breaks it must not happen and just slow breaks it which extends article fifty beyond the twenty second of may force is the british people to take part in european elections and gives up control of any of our borders malls money or trade is not a bricks it will bring the british people together she said her government would not back a plan to allow parliament to take control and set out a timetable for so-called indicative votes that could put forward alternative bricks and options for a vote the main opposition party say they will support c. amendment it passed today in a wednesday m.p.'s will have a chance to vote on the series of transit proposals we'll have to see what that produces but that at least is parliament trying to rise to reach from stability the public expects us to work as hard as we can to find an alternative way forward i don't know what the outcome will be but that is not an argument for not trying i
6:03 am
think we should try if may's deal doesn't pass by april twelfth and no deal is still the default position for the united kingdom a scenario the e.u. says is increasingly likely in a no deal scenario the u.k. will become a third country without any transition rearrangement all e.u. primary and secondary door will cease to apply to the u.k. from that moment onwards there will be no transition period as provided for in the withdrawal agreement this will obviously cause significant disruption for citizens and businesses. but more than a million people marched on saturday hoping to avoid that scenario demanding another chance to vote on bricks that the u.k. is already an extra time and may is under huge pressure from pro brecht's that conservatives to set a quick timetable for her departure they want to replace her with their own candidate who can guide negotiations in the second phase it's a pressure she might bowed to if she can secure their backing for her deal with the
6:04 am
withdrawal agreement was supposed to be the easy part of brecht's it some say negotiating the future trading relationship with the e.u. will be the real challenge. london let's go live now to neve barker who's outside parliament what is the significance of tonight's proceedings any. well it all appears so on the surface very much like dry palm entry procedure but it is a bit more than that so whatever happens in roughly an hour's time when m.p.'s vote on three different possible amendments could really sets the breaks the battleground for the next few days and possibly the next few weeks as well among these three amendments there are two that would suggest the possibility of m.p.'s voting for a range of different possible breaks it's an aria as it's known as indicative votes now those breaks in scenarios could be anything from possibly another referendum or
6:05 am
that much softer breaks it with the u.k. being a little bit more closely aligned to the single market in the customs union the lists very much goes on but what it is essentially is a power tussle between parliament and the government parliament feels very much now that of course would to reason may's deal having failed twice when it's gone in front of parliament for meaningful votes that now is the time for parliament to come up with some sort of consensus themselves as a rival possibility in the face of teresa mayes stale stalled. deal so very much a power tussle that has potentially big implications for the roadmap for brakes it going ahead what does all this mean then for the government's grip on power. oh yes squeeze is very much on the government to resign my earlier on in the day
6:06 am
said that she was not going to put her deal in front of parliament for a third time simply because she didn't believe that they had the backing they saw for the d.p. the democratic unionist party that small northern irish party that the government relies upon for votes immediately came out and said no way we're not going to support it again of course the time is all running out we know full well that the e.u. have granted the british government an extension when it comes to leaving the e.u. if there is a deal if people m.p.'s do support a deal it will be on may the twenty second to allow for breaks that legislation to be introduced if there is no deal which now looks increasingly likely again then that date is the sixteenth of april so of course the pressure is mounting on the government how much wiggle room do they have to try and bring m.p.'s in the d p and also the hard line break cities on side well very little room a top when it comes to teresa mayes own political reputation was she staked her entire political career right now on getting this deal passed there have been some
6:07 am
suggestions from hardline breaks it is that they're asking for her to come up with some sort of timetable to step down but then on monday morning some of those very same breaks it is said that they were supporting her why well even with a change of leadership the arithmetic remains the same this is a minority government that relies on support from the do you peon a parliament that looks increasingly more and more remain leading so the challenges would remain the same even with a cosmetic change the helm of the conservative party thank you very much from london. two rival camps contesting thailand's first election since the military coup in two thousand and fourteen of both said they're trying to form a coalition government the opposing parties of both also accuse the other of cheating the election commission said it could be weeks until the makeup of parliament becomes clear scott heiler reports. the morning after the much

6:20 am
deals with a vote as comes out of a series of amendments to be voted upon in parliament on monday. and two rival camps contesting thailand's first election since the military coup and twenty fourteen have both said they are trying to form a coalition government the results give the primitive tree pollen pressure a rough policy a largest share of the popular vote. well more on top story now this escalation of recent violence in and around gaza or i'm joined in the studio by a professor of international relations at regent university here in london and an expert in israeli politics thank you for coming in to speak to us so the timing of this latest round of tension is interesting with an election in israel just two weeks away how might that impact prime minister netanyahu is calculations it has to has to impact because of course you ought to know that there no one to come to the election two weeks from no as mr security but to go into this year where we'll see
6:21 am
from the bodos in the golan a it's on the along the gaza build the the west wing so they want to project confidence on the other hand they look at today hits deep inside these are. so it means that despite all the above though that we don't need to reach an agreement of the hamas the situation is stable don't worry about it the distill the danger the how in israel and here i'm just want to how important is that fact that you mention because the rocket hit northeast of tel aviv but it was different in the sense that it wasn't the sort of short range projectile that we're used to seeing psychologically it's important it means that the hamas can hates fall from form from gaza and stated the house where there is the host and israeli population and it hit a host luckily no one was killed there but potentially it could have been much worse so from psychological point of view the hamas would still sort of
6:22 am
a small victory and is a more vulnerable and that's exactly when the ten year old doesn't want to go to the election when the electorate sorts questioning him especially when he competes with a party that has fully formal chief of staff on the other side. so in that case how vulnerable is prime minister netanyahu in this upcoming election is only mainly because if was corruption charges because not only the three that have been indicted spending hearing or so they're one of the submarines it seems that the ministry of a few degrees of separation for it in only the people that close to him now it seems that he himself the companies that are close to this deal so i think more and more we get this kind of negative publicity while there is a new message in powell the blue and whites a new party so this would play strongly into the election so yes he is vulnerable

more than for very long time and you know after ten years in power. there is fatigue you know the stories about that and the on the co-option the people around him and you know despite the economy's doing well it's not an even distribution. of this wealth because the country so it's probably more vulnerable to it's been for the last decade is a feeling the pressure from bribery and corruption charges at the moment also given the fact that the underlying dynamics that keep leading to a conflict between israel and gaza are fundamentally unchanged could it could it then spark possibly a full blown conflict even if unintentionally it can but this is very very risky from a ten year old to thing that if there is a kind of splendid little war in gaza any place again mr security in come to the election day because it can go all in maybe it's time for these early voters to understand there is no military solution for gaza only a political diplomatic one thank you very much for your analysis your city michael

a position on something or the world anti-doping agency has to take notice you'll get over it. in part two of this series al-jazeera continues to explore the widespread use of performance enhancing drugs sports still being the endless chain on all dizzy era. israel carries out as strikes across the gaza strip and at least ten rockets launched from the strip into southern israel. hello i'm maryam namazie there with al jazeera live from london so coming up on the program. as things stand there is still not sufficient support in the house to
6:49 am
bring back the deal for a third reason to vote. u.k. prime minister to resign may accepts defeat on her deal for the moment but remains determined to see off plans by rebel and peace to seize control of bricks that there's still no clear winner in thailand's first election since a military coup five years ago and as donald trump hits back at his political opponents we look at the reaction of the u.s. public to the motor report. welcome to the program has been a further escalation in the exchange of fire across the gaza israel border with at least ten rockets launched from the strip into southern israel now this comes after israeli jets hit hamas targets including the offices of the hamas leader is smile israel also mobilized ground forces near the gaza border they just reports claim
6:50 am
a cease fire has now been brokered by egypt but reports of explosions are continuing earlier in the day a rocket fired from gaza struck a home in central israel wounding seven people israel will not tolerate business. and as we speak. as i told you mr president just now israel is responding forcefully to this wanton aggression i have a simple message to israel's enemies we will do whatever we must do to defend our people and defend our state herefore said sent us the latest from the israel gaza border. well despite reports of a ceasefire despite announcements of a ceasefire coming from senior hamas officials one of whom said that on tuesday the ministries and schools would be open again inside gaza there has been continued
6:51 am
strikes coming from the israeli side and indeed rockets being fired out of gaza territory as well we heard some intercepted near opposition here near the northern area of the gaza border in israeli territory and we can still hear strikes going on in the background as well that is the message we're getting from our colleagues inside gaza that after this ten pm local time cease fire arrangement that has been declared by hamas there were still israeli strikes continuing and as i say we have seen rockets still coming out of gaza as well all of this following what happened a rocket fired out of gaza territory hitting an israeli family home northeast of tel aviv seven members of that family injured in that strike benjamin netanyahu promising forceful act reaction to that he is in the middle of a very hard fought election campaign in which he has been criticized by his main challenger the former israeli army chief benny gantz for his gaza policy for not
6:52 am
bringing results in terms of containing hamas and so we were expecting a forceful and indeed major israeli military operation multi-story buildings housing what the israeli military says were the hamas internal security and an insurance building which it said was a secret base for the military intelligence among other services as well as is now hani the political leader of hamas his office building three major targets already destroyed inside gaza the army was promising that there was more to come al-jazeera arabic correspondent schanzer could visit a scene of one of the astronauts in gaza. i thought. this is the result of one of the israeli airstrikes that hits a residential building here in central gaza the first floor of the building hosted the headquarters of the insurance company the top floors were residential apartments which had been fully destroyed but residents had hardly any time to
6:53 am
escape the strike fleeing the building only minutes before it was destroyed by israeli jets the house was hit first by a number of drone missiles then israeli jets fully destroyed it civil defense and ambulances have arrived this area is full of residential buildings such buildings in central gaza is a sign of an escalation. al-jazeera senior political analyst marwan bashara joins us now from doha speaking about reports confirmed by palestinian sources of a possible cease fire in gaza that's been contradicted by the ongoing explosions is there much appetite for a broader conflict in the area. well i would say there are three possible scenarios for the israelis one that they would actually accept an egyptian mediation for a cease fire which means that puts israel's security in egyptian hands and while
6:54 am
president sisi is quite friendly to israel israel historically never accepted to have its security put. in the hands of a foreign nation and that also in a way means that israel could no longer under any pretext intervening guys and perhaps even the west bank because then how. would retaliate the second scenario for nothing you know who's really besieged by this is collation is that he will go on bombing fight to have. him in various parts of gaza which will lead to retaliation from the policy of factions and that will put him in a real bind because neither would he be able to contain gaza nor stop the possibility of rockets raining over israel and the third scenario which is you know the most dramatic one and that but that must involve ground troops and continuous
6:55 am
memoir meant he might wind about all in that sense for now he will set the lose the war and lose israel public opinion come ninth so really he doesn't have that many good good options three options the sweetest among them is quite bitter when netanyahu his main political opponent in the upcoming election benny gantz taunts him fanaa being tough enough on how old gaza does how much does that increase the pressure on the knesset that flex his muscles. well just for a moment so this whole conversation about how guns is a lefty and a softy is all really b.s. in the end of the day he was part of a number of military campaigns including the latest one in gaza and for now for
6:56 am
him to be really pushing that the neo for a more dramatic escalation. first of all it shows how right wing and how bloody this alternative is for the israeli promote ship and it shows how israeli leaders are quite cynical when it comes to innocent lives i think at this point in time at the now and guns are very less for lives in gaza and palestine in general as they compete for the premiership but what we know for sure is that the now has been a prime minister for now some ten years and guns have been chief of staff for a number of years of the military army neither of them was able to bring israelis security or peace both of them have failed i think neither israel either has answers for israelis or for the palestinians thank you very much
6:57 am
al-jazeera senior political analyst rhonda shara joining us there thank you marwan . well now the launch of the airstrikes came as the united states officially recognized israel's claim to sovereignty of the occupied golan heights donald trump signed a presidential proclamation after meeting israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu israel sees this for digital important area in one nine hundred sixty seven and is occupied at a sense our diplomatic editor james bays reports. the un secretary general here in new york is watching the situation in gaza with great concern. he's long warmed at the dangers of the conflict the conflict now underway the secretary general is gravely concerned by the latest developments regarding gaza today's firing of a rocket from gaza towards israel is a serious and unacceptable violation were also where of the latest reports of
6:58 am
firing on gaza in a monitoring events we urge all sides to exercise maximum restraint the second very moment the secretary general spokesman was briefing reporters president trump was signing his declaration recognizing israel's sovereignty over the golan a direct challenge to the international consensus on the issue for the secretary general it is clear that the status of golan is not change the u.s. policy on the golan is reflected in the relevant result of the security council you may notice a reticence to criticize president trump even though there's little doubt his proclamation is in breach of international law this will be a difficult issue too for the u.s. is close allies on the u.n. security council which meets to discuss israel palestine on choose day since the start of the trumpet ministration the council has allowed the u.s. to lead diplomacy on this file but there is growing unease among diplomats on gaza don't expect any action other than council members adding their voices to the calls
6:59 am
for restraint on gaulin don't expect any action a tall other council members of very unhappy about president trump's decision but even if they wanted to come up with a statement condemning it the u.s. would block it james out his era of the united nations. now british m.p.'s are voting on a crucial amendment which would see parliament take control of bracks it from the prime minister a motion put forward by rebel m.p.'s wants parliament to hold a series of indicative votes to see if there is support for an alternative to two reason may's breaks it deal early and may admitted she did not have enough support to pass her withdrawal agreement in parliament. mr speaker i continue to believe that the right path forward is for the united kingdom to leave the e.u.
7:00 am
as soon as possible with the deal now on the twenty second of may but it is with great regret that i have had to conclude that as things stand there is still not sufficient support in the house to bring back the deal for a third meaningful vote. i continue i continue to have discussions with colleagues across the house to build support so that we can bring the full vote forward to this week and guarantee brix it if we cannot the government made a commitment that we would work across the house to find a majority on a way forward. let's go live now to need outside parliament means the m.p.'s are voting on when the parliament should take control of the process what is the significance of these proceedings tonight. well it may appear very dry and simply procedural but it could have big implications on the brakes it battlefield for the coming days possibly the coming weeks as well m.p.'s of voting on two amendments probably the most prominent of the two is the all over
7:01 am
let win amendments that would allow m.p.'s to have a series of indicative votes or wednesday that means costing votes on a whole range of different possible break six and including potentially further delays to break see it another e.u. referendum a possible softer breaks in the warm proposed by theresa may that could see the u.k. having a closer alignment to the east customs union and the single markets what m.p.'s are essentially saying is that they want to wrest some of the power away from the government and they do not believe that given to reason may's inability to get ahead deal past that she's capable of being able to do it a third time we are literally seconds away from finding out what the results of that oliver letwin amendment is. m.p.'s at the moment gathered in a very packed chamber the speaker of the house is about to call. the to the right
7:02 am
three hundred and twenty nine. that led to three hundred and scoop. on the nose to the left three hundred two so the m.p.'s have backed brick seats in the breaks it into to vote planned so that really is something of a shake up for the british government m.p.'s have now decided to take things into their own. unhand parliamentary procedure on friday will be dominated by m.p.'s deciding exactly what they believe should be the forward plan for brix it in the coming future so a blow for to reason is government in this result. government and the expectation has been for a while now that to resume a's days on one of the implications of all this for the government on palin. let's all over
7:03 am
for to reason my nor her governments that has been some speculation that if of course m.p.'s decide to coalesce around an alternative plan to teresa mayes deal that is softer than to reason may's deal that it could in theory spook some of the hardline bricks a ts within her own party that have so far been unwilling to back the prime minister and her deal into backing it so who knows we may see a situation when to resign may actually feels more confident to put head deal ahead of parliament for a third vote we would imagine that that would probably take place at least on thursday so a day after the indicative votes but of course nothing is clear she has been under a tremendous amount of pressure from hard line breaks it is within her policy to come up with some sort of timetable for her departure there's a feeling amongst those hardliners that it's probably better to have somebody else
7:04 am
at the helm of the party going into the next stage of bricks and negotiations but some of those hard line breaks it is pretty much change that shoot on monday morning saying that they would stand by the prime minister primarily because pretty much the arithmetic remains the same whoever is leader of the policy it's a minority government relies upon votes from the democratic unionist party who have resisted supporting to resume a supply and of course the new prime minister would also face a. a palm and that he's leaning towards for maine so the. injuries would not go away even the threes but he promised. all right well thank you very much in need with all the latest outside parliament following a significant that has left the prime minister's authority and general control over the exit process in tatters. still ahead for you an emotional goodbye to the volunteer he died trying to help after the iraq ferry

were indicted but after poring over the evidence maloney's team concluded there was no collusion and there will be no more documents for many voters across the u.s. reaction has been muted great deal see the investigation and then suing coverage is a distraction from the real work that needs to be done it would be ironic would mean that the report turns into something we could all agree upon which is let's move on and work together unfortunately i think it's a lot of waste of taxpayer dollars i mean i know there could have been something there but it's. to me the time to determine those kind of issues is before the election not after said i think it's just time to get to more time to expose real wrongdoing by trump trump is going to say politics professor jones if you since he says many ordinary voters haven't followed the extensive coverage and grew weary months ago there's this assumption that everyone's paying attention and and we're all waiting with bated breath for this report but most people don't really care that much and the people that do pay attention their minds are probably already

made up one way or the other the political infighting over the malo report will undoubtedly continue and many people we've spoken to want congress to continue digging for any potential wrongdoing but the overwhelming sense is that most voters have more pressing issues on their minds the economy wages and health care are the big issues and many want politicians to get. back to working on policies that have real impacts on their lives to go like are all dizzy or miami florida. just want to recap the top stories this hour now has been a further escalation in the exchange of fire across the gaza israel border israeli military bomb targets across the strip after a rocket attacked attack near tel aviv now israeli jets hit hamas targets including the office of hamas leader ismail haniyeh israel also mobilized ground forces in

7:27 am
pay look for one of the apps who are doing development is fun and gives you the chance to create it you create something and you see people use it i mean it's. satisfaction are you from there you can't compare it to going to. need to form a shop whatever they are and no mobile phones are very cheap and before the. coverage more than anything else. lauren will not change it's more fun for tate part of a logical system which is the information services what are the mic information services what's this about those guys who are in trouble this is. back in uganda it's the start of the long reigns for william it's time to plant. somebody and would be now a days or. a. key
7:28 am
to come. mimic will. come of this in a sealed to. make it but. so can more new help william become the family he wants to be. filmmaker tony who helped come up with a life apps idea new a challenge that he contra fuse is tasked to create a mobile application that can help farmers like william. agreed to take seven days out of his busy schedule to crack it so you can just talk to him to just figure out problems out and see if you can develop a solution for him ok so down to the month you can just.
7:29 am
go there look we slowly i'm. going to put a number twenty. five. ok. to us asante ok. so we're good. good for the turn it's ok phone calls all things that. you. know you you you always research is customize means normally in nairobi williams you gania is eight hours wakes you. up but. is that a given. to you and.
7:30 am
you. no you only. really believe. this but. when they claim it's all an experienced people believe. what they're doing and see if. you're legal. or illegal you'll be given the moon us to work out what's stopping william making better use of his two acres. then you can design an app to help you. be a little tough to the sun and i don't think when danny ainge is honest and up and began nailing s.f. enough for ice a bubble to double up the telephone of the sooty. and then the limo some balcony
7:31 am
or like any normal sex wednesdays and he says that the most mbanga mean a to b. define him to be did he even to be defined be any be defined c says i can't deny gina let me quote this is. the same name abunda and damn i'm seeing who mark i dare you to be anywhere not a double minded man because. now says i keep on buying up to some busyness seem cool. nevil is internet ok somehow become a pilot anything but seen from you seem. to not find. it in a muddy sense and a total in a way that it can and i say and do nothing when i'm lazy. and. he said when i taught when i was acquired all that all of them one of them. william suffers
7:32 am
from the same problems a small scale farmers globally he has no modern water pumps he can't afford fertilizes and without proper transport he can only still crops locally so williams joined a farmers group to try and pool knowledge and resources to kink human embryo. thing and as a man you can be nice to get them again. going to a trip to india and. say. with me it was getting. to bed and you assess it and then said and then go jim of what he said what he said . well it will go nice and i said forget the so called science and you have to tango yet when it come late and living. in it that the fact that two liam is already in a group and it's barely two months old it's a starting point because it's already brought people together so even if you do look you know solace from two thoughts and if he's going to be
7:33 am
a platform and you can use them one of the test groups or a focus group and also start from hearing problems from other phones as well because now we've had to both really and maybe and of the families facing a slightly different problem you. do like the. city boy moon use about to taste some kenyan country cooking with william special needs crop is indigenous kenyan vegetables. and even if i take less learn to think the food before we take it in the sense case . he may turn into. limbo yes i mind he said but you you you you you you know you. you. i don't want to you. know your
7:34 am
you'll. pick. your you. next and when use research trip is a visit to you getting a town center he's going to meet william's group of local farmers. who wants to know if other farmers have the same problems as william. and how we can design a mobile phone app to help. find any. because we. combine of mice and birds and guinea. no no no you think you know this is going to turn to could build a light. lay's attorney imagine a gun that. like me is really fired you met last week to come get a good show systems a day to get you know. when i say my all to pine day in boca
7:35 am
community is that i did two parties in big to find the p.d. the meeting was good and after listening to. and his problems all the challenges he faces and he's doing is harming they're not unique to him other guys in the community also facing more or less the same problems. when you want to research how much the crops william grows could fix so he has to one of the largest markets in the area. it's only forty kilometers from williams home but he's never even been here. every turn journey using public transport would cost him five dollars almost
7:36 am
a week's income. so it's william's first chance to find out how much the indigenous vegetables he grows could sell for in the big local markets. you know nothing more american. and. the truth should be. there. in the south suburbs sounds a little bit to get back to the question that got no. man to sign up our cities you need something to. sell some good to her said. it is a no no she doesn't look at or before winds up on the top of she down there's a whirlpool eighty two more didn't know if i come in. to work you know now no you didn't when i said much about your city and you know when you get when you want to when you get when you want to when you're beautiful can sign up to
7:37 am
pick up someone analytical maccie and. pulling resources with a group could mean lower costs and higher returns for their produce. when you realize this is how a mobile phone app could help looking up from the fall mas to the snow and then what the market is these are lots of ideas to explore within the same area was of the problems become visible from a group level as a group you want to what source you support you see how much all these particular item before you see that name of intelligence reporting it as it will be able to sell these produce and also to what you need to be and how much to better. you know you. you know you will you. know you'll you'll be doing you know you will. it's a quick goodbye to william as more news of back to nairobi. his challenge is to
7:38 am
design an app that can help william make a better life from farming. it is a sad story unfortunately. and was see the food prices in nairobi ridiculously high and these guys can sell their produce out here i mean for instance you give me an example here into the market with five hundred or four farm produce he only sold a hundred killings so the rest will end up protein and becoming compost. it's time for my new to brief his team my metaphor my wheel and here is the future lenses that he's facing as an indigenous crop of the i also know that sounds of
7:39 am
meeting the group that he belongs to these farmers need from push information so we're looking at her technology. kamin and bridge he's got under so support them to get to the next level so movie these this information of boats. planting seeds on this date and then they come they have how much the i mean from the farm financial financial planning information we need to bridge that gap because the team decides to go with a simple text based app i didn't lose the chance to claim before this for use you know you can school with they don't last much he says develop technology you develop solutions for technology people you just want to information to move from the farm to the market and from the market to the farm and the only way you can do these is through their groups by the said to be allowed this. seems
7:40 am
by way that they're almost ready to go back to william with their idea for an app back. to say that he didn't use it but john cleese is a living come by i need to give my mind mind you but. this. is. the prototype of their life app is ready to show william in person. l.o.l. mr william. could you be sure to talk with them but. he wouldn't that have been. on the road back to william and this time when used joined by geoffrey one of the best trainers.
7:41 am
city boys are about to be reminded why oh teo communication is a problem. in the planet to much and good people but even. if we model. in a solution. the first step is showing the group how the prototype app works so i knew what to do missing william. and me and billy.
7:42 am
so because so much more. it's a swahili word meaning fertility supposed to be a platform to exchange information well aids market information whether it's based on disease information on record keeping all that in one. so how exactly does road to both work. step one register the group pharma name and produce. steps to send the details to row two database. step three send reports through a tube or via text message such as which crops and the quantity they're selling. step for on market day then text all the farmers in the group to share the information.
7:43 am
then they can agree on prices and share transport costs. nikki to keep. most of interaction with the system will get through this a mess and that's what a farmer as i'm missing the system of the system getting the data back to the farm it can be tailored to be anything the pharma wants it to be for instance if the group owns a farm implement like up on. eva farm owns to use the pump to request for the pump waste a mess. to clean up the group. all . keep it up. now. because. the app would allow williams'
7:44 am
friends to collect and distributes the information they need to work together so why are they giving me. fuck you are not will be. fine yeah yeah. well why not because they said they like their product. neat so i think it went pretty well you should have seen the smiles on faces. the smile on their way and is what gives you the belief. that. you can call it blowing all out of experience something you really have it's all an experience you'll have. to come. back to
7:45 am
your mom. but you know. it's an. open the you can. be a key to. it he says i mean to me for taking it could to me it seems to be and. use currently seeking investment funding to develop or to buy as a fully functioning technology. he's convinced that mobile phone apps like you tube can help kenya's millions of small scale farmers to work more efficiently find new markets and have a better life. putting information on people's homes do you think that out. i should have access to point for most of the place because they're the ones probably the only food out there feeding the michelin green that it's all the same as a all time envisioning but some of these things are present because kill even less

7:50 am
two sides exchanged far across the gaza israel border with multiple israeli airstrikes and at least ten rockets launched from the strip into southern israel israeli jets had some us targets including the offices of the group's leader ismail haniya and it also mobilized ground forces near the gaza border the fighting on monday began when seven israelis were wounded by a rocket which landed on a house in a suburban area near tel aviv israel will not tolerate this and i will not tolerate and as we speak as i told you mr president just now israel is responding forcefully to this wanton aggression i have a simple message to israel's enemies we will do whatever we must do to defend our people and defend our state and our correspondent gary fawcett has this update from the israel gaza border. well despite reports of
7:51 am
a ceasefire despite announcements of a ceasefire coming from senior hamas officials one of whom said that on tuesday the ministries and schools would be open again inside gaza there has been continued strikes coming from the israeli side and indeed rockets being fired out of gaza territory as well we heard some intercepted near our position here near the northern area of the gaza border in israeli territory and we could still hear strikes going on in the background as well that is the message we're getting from our colleagues inside gaza that after this ten pm local time cease fire arrangements that have been declared by hamas there were still israeli strikes continuing and as i say we have seen rockets still coming out of gaza as well all of this following what happened earlier on tuesday a rocket fired out of gaza territory hitting an israeli family home northeast of tel aviv seven members of that family injured in that strike benjamin netanyahu
7:52 am
promising a forceful act reaction to that he is in the middle of a very hard fought election campaign in which he has been criticized by his main challenger the former israeli army chief benny gantz for his gaza policy for not bringing results in terms of containing hamas and so we were expecting a forceful and indeed major israeli military operation multi-story buildings housing what the israeli military says were the hamas internal security and an insurance building which it said was a secret base for the military intelligence another services as well as is now hania the political leader of hamas his office building three major targets already destroyed inside gaza the army was promising that there was more to come. and i'll just there are because spondon tisha has this report from the scene of one of the
7:53 am
israeli airstrikes in gaza and the thought. that this is the result of one of the israeli air strikes that hits a residential building here in central gaza the first floor of the building hosted the headquarters of an insurance company the top floors were residential apartments which had been fully destroyed but residents had hardly any time to escape the strike fleeing the building only minutes before it was destroyed by israeli jets the house was hit first by a number of drone missiles then israeli jets fully destroyed it civil defense and ambulances have arrived this area is full of residential buildings hitting such buildings in central gaza is a sign of an escalation that those developments in gaza happened as israeli's prime israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu met the u.s. president in washington d.c. donald trump signed a presidential proclamation saying the u.s.
7:54 am
recognizes israeli sovereignty over the golan heights israel sees the strategically important area in one thousand nine hundred sixty seven and has occupied it ever since the united states recognizes israel's absolute right to defend itself the just speak of will attack this morning demonstrates the significant security challenges that israel faces every single day and today i'm taking historic action to promote israel's ability to defend itself and really to have a very powerful very strong national security which they're entitled to have and we cannot cross over torching to d.c. where mike hanna is live for us so mike all this is happening at a crucial meeting where israel plays a very central role can you tell us more about what's happening at a fact. well indeed yes see israeli lobby group holding its second day of the conference benjamin netanyahu due to address the conference tuesday but now not
7:55 am
doing so because he's returning to israel did so immediately after that meeting with president trump but there are some and within aipac who are concerned about president trump's absolutely strong support of benjamin netanyahu in particular there are those well aware of the fact that trump support for netanyahu could have an impact on that election taking place in israel next month and also we heard at aipac in the course of the day from mr netanyahu opponent in that election when she guns who was absolutely strong about the issue that israel is seeking support from democrats and as well from republicans he says that the support for israel should be bipartisan ganz obviously very clearly disturbed about president trams high profile and possibly beneficial support for benjamin netanyahu and how is that
7:56 am
playing out within congress itself is there much support across the political spectrum in washington. well there are those within congress who argue that it would be political suicide to go against the very powerful israeli lobby within the united states but that's been changing to a degree given the shifting demographics within congress given the fact that the democratic party has taken over the house and some representative coming into the house who are very different from their previous s's arguing some of them that israeli lobby is playing an unfortunate role in the u.s. political system and arguing too that there should be not and that countable support for israel that the port support should be qualified now this has gained traction within the democratic party caucus as a result a number of presidential candidates democratic presidential candidates did not
7:57 am
attend this conference this was seized upon by deputy president mike pence in his speech saying loudly that eight presidential contenders are not taking part are boycotting this conference they are not worthy he said essentially of seeking office for the president of the united states so this is becoming a political issue mike pence signaling very clearly that in the twenty twenty election he is going to be arguing this very strongly we've heard the president trump say blatantly that the democratic party is anti semitic he is on tape saying that particular point so certainly the whole issue of support for israel and the role it plays within the u.s. political system is going to be one of the issues in that twenty twenty election mike hanna in washington d.c. for us thank you. now as we've been saying the launch of those airstrikes came as the united states officially recognized israel skate claim to solve n.t.

7:59 am
general it is clear that the status of golan has not changed the u.s. policy on the golan is reflected in the relevant resolutions of the security council you may notice a reticence to criticize president trump even though there's little doubt his proclamation is in breach of international law this will be a difficult issue too for the u.s. is close allies on the u.n. security council which meets to discuss israel palestine on choose day since the start of the trumpet ministration the council has allowed the u.s. to lead diplomacy on this file but there is growing unease among diplomats on gaza don't expect any action other than council members adding their voices to the calls for a straight on go land don't expect any action a tall other council members of very unhappy about president trump's decision but even if they wanted to come up with a statement condemning it the u.s. would block it james pays out his era of the united nations. well trump's

proclamation has received international condemnation with syria calling it a blatant attack on its sovereignty and territorial integrity it says it's has a right to reclaim the territory russia has also warned that the move would further deteriorate the situation in the region nato member turkey says the decision by the us is unacceptable and it will take action against a decision and the arab league has described transaction as illegitimate israel occupies nearly two thirds of the wider golan heights as a result of the one thousand nine hundred sixty seven conflict so the move to recognize golan heights has been seen as a major boost for netanyahu who's seeking reelection his campaign for the april ninth vote has been hit by corruption scandals though that's in our faces criminal charges in three corruption cases pending a review hearing after the election that appeared in polls but netanyahu is right when likud and benny gantz centrist blue and white party neck and neck we can get
8:01 am
more in this from akiva eldar who's a senior columnist for al monitor as israel pulse and he joins us now by skype from tel aviv thank you very much it's very good to speak to you we've been talking about trump's recognition of israel sovereignty over the golan heights but before we get to that can we. have a quick word about this latest. basically exchange between israel and from the gaza strip this exchange of fire and can you tell us what kind of an impact or work or how that affects now netanyahu campaign of political campaign for these elections. well the past campaigns showed that it could the israeli right always when it
8:02 am
is from violence. it seems that the hamas and the israeli settlers government are kind of psionic two ways in eighty eight actually it was a touch and go between the labor party and the likud we were in shimon peres and. prime minister shamir and there was a terrorist attack just a few hours before they opened the balloting stations and the israeli public always prefers when the time comes to decide between the unknown and the prime minister that has been there for a while and we face violence is the they're afraid of the are no and they would prefer nathaniel probably as long as there is violence in spite of the fact that he
8:03 am
hasn't been able to give good answers to those attacks you know now we're talking about striking. the center of israel it's just twenty minutes away from tel aviv from our i speak to you but the people in the communities around gaza are facing this on a daily basis and indeed. now there's been a ceasefire brokered apparently but it seems that israel is tel striking areas and gaza why do you think that decision has been made once again are there political undertones to it. well you know it's all about diverting the attention from the corruption scandals that are following at any hour every goes the what we just saw the
8:04 am
signing of the american or commission of the israeli sovereignty of the golan heights was a transparent. american involvement in political in this radical mastic political friends and this is not the first time that doing this actually president clinton did the same when he helped shimon peres and then ever barak to win the elections but the difference is that this is the first time that an american president is interfering in the domestic of first in a way that undermines his own so the speak efforts to put an end to the israeli palestinian conflict and to bring about a kind of a regional peace and what they see today. and
8:05 am
president trump was obviously embarrassing the arab league which is going to convene at the end of the month and it's all about not only about ten euros political future it's about his own personal future it's about. spending the rest of his life in jail or being reelected for a prime minister as simple as that. thank you very much given his are great i think and actually sorry go and actually the people the people of gaza and is going back to question the people of gaza and the people of israel are paying the price probably they will keep paying the price thank you very much i cabled our great to get your insight good to speak to you thank you. and from tel aviv joining me now on set is there a senior political analyst. great to speak to you let's talk about this exchange
8:06 am
we've seen between israel and gaza and the fact that israel is continuing its strikes on gaza what do you make of that does it seem like this could escalate even further is this something and the elections that are coming up look there are no good options at this point in time for prime minister netanyahu i think you've ignored this for a long time he played lots of games with the egyptians and the palestinians over the last several months and he couldn't reach a long term ceasefire as it was expected with egyptian assistance and now he's actually paying the price two weeks before the elections and as much as gaza of course is paying the price so no he has three possible scenarios or three possible options one is to accept the egyptian cease fire to mediation and as we've seen already israel is violating them because i actually don't believe the prime minister of the now will put his political future is of security in the hands of
8:07 am
egypt that would mediate such a cease fire because that would also mean that hamas and jihad the. veto over israeli future incursions the gaza the second option is that he does continue this bombings own certain selected targets within within gaza which i think within hours maybe a day or two will lead to retaliation from hamas and jihad and hence rockets will start falling in various parts of israel and believe me it seems from the various reports jihad and hamas have triple or quadruple the number of rockets they have in the war of two thousand and fourteen the third option is that heat goes all the way which means continue a real carpet bombing of gaza leads into invasion and. potentially as many of his coalition partners ask is reoccupation of gaza that will take weeks months that
8:08 am
means huge israeli and of course palestinian casualties and that means he might win some of the battles but he will lose i disagree with your guest from tel aviv i think a war of this nature if nothing you know fights it here will end up losing the premiership and the elections because israelis couldn't believe that after ten years of nothing you know after decades of war in gaza and the west bank that they are still the target of hamas rockets ok listen let's talk about that this is the longest range missile since the two thousand and fourteen conflict what do you make of the timing of this i mean far as hamas and jihad the concern they are retaliating. is prime minister netanyahu claims from washington that this is a want on aggression and one time means unprovoked aggressive. bloody attack by gaza is under occupation for the last fifty two years and israel
8:09 am
just had an incursion into gaza last night and there were attacks in the west bank and in one. israeli prison against palestinian prisoners in fact over the last three years or three and a half years since the two thousand and fourteen there has been some three hundred . israeli incursions into the gaza strip and of course countless numbers of bombardments of arrests in the west bank and so on so forth so the palestinians are not exactly suddenly aggressing israel they are retaliating to first of all and the reality of occupation but also to continuous. israeli incursion into the gaza strip ok let's talk about u.s. support for israel we saw first trump recognize jerusalem as the capital. and then now this giving sovereignty to of the golan heights to israel now where does that leave the gaza people in gaza and particularly the political system within
8:10 am
gaza. and does does that mean that it it kind of makes them push back against israel even more well certainly the last few days we've had the situation in gaza escalate by a certain number of people against hamas itself against hamas is ruling gaza and i think this situation of course liberates them from the public pressure within the strip and let's all remember that the strip is some two million plus people eighty five percent of them refugees and some half of them or more are unemployed and just almost similar numbers of people living under poverty so the gaza strip is just an open prison it is one of the most dreadful situations around the world so it is normal for people in gaza to be acting and demanding dignity and and living standards if you will but what we've heard from president trump today was
8:11 am
actually disturbing he spoke as you know the president of the world superpower about israel's absolute right to defend itself as if the palestinians have no right to self-defense after seventy years of this possessions and fifty years of occupation and countless israeli bombardments. the palestinians do have a right for force of defense and other it for international protection but sometimes when you hear and as we did today prime minister netanyahu and president trump and you hear secular state and vice president mike pence and others like american ambassador to israel this speak with biblical terms like religious fundamentalists they talk about trump as good sense they talk about mrs yannick israeli presence in palestine they they talk about in such terms that i
8:12 am
sometimes get the feeling that i'm listening to people from i saw except that they have orange ties on because the idea of taking land by force. under the biblical pretexts that does remind us of various very fundamentalist religious extremist groups but when the president of the united states and the prime minister of israel two countries with nuclear weapons speak with god given right to bomb bombard and annex land by force that is scary and i think many people around the world and even many people in different capitals including in moscow in beijing and in other places now say international law does not count international law is it is just nothing to pay attention for a new un security council resolution like that one that the united states voted in favor for seventy nine in one thousand eighty one that said israel had no right to annex the golan heights all of that today is not on void why because the american
8:13 am
president decided to tweet and to sign a proclamation that one country whose land has suddenly become another country well i tell you we are not living during the nineteenth century the british empire and the french empires are gone and america will not be able to give one people's land to another people just because its president decided to be sorry as always great to get your insight and great to get you on set thank you. ok plenty more still ahead this news hour including. dates on venezuela including what the government says is behind widespread power outages. and in sports one of baseball's most sought after players has hit a financial homerun we'll have the details coming up later.
8:14 am
british m.p.'s have voted to take control of the brags that agenda away from the government it is another crushing blow for prime minister tourism a she'll be forced to hand over control to parliament on wednesday who will try and work out a way forward may says the move sets an unwelcome precedent. and the barker is live in westminster for us so need tell us what's happened in the past few hours and what that means now for braggs it. well very simply there's been an almighty tussle between parliament and the government over who is in charge of the bricks and process because trees may own breaks a deal has failed twice and trees may have made today a new one of the day that it was likely to fail again if it went before parliament parliament itself is said will it wants to control what happens next so they've
8:15 am
voted. for a key amendment allowing for m.p.'s to hostess hold a series of so-called indicative votes a wednesday on a whole range of possible breaks it sonali as we don't know what those scenarios but we can pretty much guess that they may include a possible revoking of article fifty remaining in the european union delaying break said a possible second referendum a soft a brick said with great to alignment to the customs union no single market that kind of thing the list is endless but crucially this is highly symbolic because it means that m.p.'s have ultimate control for one day at least. that whatever they come up with though is still largely symbolic it doesn't have any kind of legal basis the prime minister and the government are not forced by any means to adopt it but it most certainly puts pressure on the government to in some
8:16 am
way adult possibly. parliament's preferred option going forward but isn't over of course for the prime minister in the government they could well be a way around all of this for the prime minister. if it appears that m.p.'s are willing to back a much softer version of brakes if it could in theory speed called line breaks a tease with annoying policy of say fall visits sit back and her deal into now backing it up so in theory we could well see to reason may have another go at getting a deal passed impala meant by the end of the week but at the moment everything is up in the air that's right. that's going to go watson what is the. well the british prime minister has as you know amazing staying power just survived two significant defeats of deal and the pasta when it's gone and front of
8:17 am
parliament for meaningful votes he's managed to survive on a confidence vote as well she's absolutely adamant that this deal is the only way forward the only way if you nine seeing i country uniting lever's and remain is around which she believes is a compromise deal of course that also has the backing of the european union so everything is lined up a saw she's concerned the only problem is that the m.p.'s are not behind it so what does this mean for a political career well she's stuck to a political reputation on getting that deal pasta that has been some growing pressure from within her own ranks among hard line breaks a team is for her to possibly table a timetable for own departure but some of those on brett's tears came out on monday morning saying that they would throw their support behind the prime minister that now was in the time for a change of leadership why because well even if there was a different prime minister the arithmetic of parliament would still be the same the
8:18 am
government would still be a minority government dependent on support from the northern irish democratic unionist policy and palm it would still largely be pro remain so the challenges wouldn't go away even if there was another person in charge thank you very much that. ok so for the second time in a month venezuela has been struck by a major power outage at least sixteen of the country's twenty three states have been affected by the blackout now what led to this latest outage is unclear at this point but earlier this month embattled president nicolas maduro blamed the worst outage in venezuela history on what he described to us sabotage opposition leader says the government's incompetence is to blame our correspondents. following this story from my cow that's in colombia so i was on there what more do we know about
8:19 am
this power outage and what's behind it. well this was this. big power and. suffered in less than two weeks and once again just like two weeks ago most of the capitol. when. it started a little after one pm and it continued throughout the afternoon just as people were trying to go back home and the metro system there was down the same happened in a number of other cities across the finish well more than half of the venezuelan states were again affected half of the country. many of the stores are also shut down fearing looting in the kind that chaos that we've seen happening two weeks ago
8:20 am
when there have been this when i suffered the worst blackout in its history that went on essentially four days and once again just like two weeks ago the government of unequal playing to the opposition and they're beginning with the united states as being behind an attack on the. largest electric plant in the country that serves most of the country with electricity so the government didn't give any details but once again it was a case of sabotage that it was an attack but in this case they were able to fix the in roughly five or six hours i spoke to people in the catholic thing they all said they were very worried that most of them i got their lights back but they said they were very worried that this could happen again and they were very distressed by what had happened two weeks ago they had hoped that that was the end of it and he's
8:21 am
there now they're seeing the blackout starting again and meanwhile as there were here in the u.s. and russia exchanged heated words can you explain. yes that is the case that the strongest wording is coming from the united states on monday but it's following an action by russia there have been reports that has been confirmed by the venezuelan government to russian military aircraft that arrived in the capital over the weekend carrying a number of troops possibly more than one hundred and the u.s. is now calling that a reckless escalation of the situation in that. part of russia that continues
8:22 am
supporting and they are. the president of venezuela at this despite the fact that the united states and a number of western countries have recognized the leader of the opposition as illegitimate president the interim president of venezuela might compare the secretary of state of the united states called the russian foreign minister on monday and say that the u.s. will not. use the. thing that he and his government that he didn't say exactly what the u.s. will do to stop the russian from supporting in the past you remember the president of the united states donald trump said that a military option was on a table when it came to vanish in the last few weeks we have seen a number of u.s. official downplaying that possibility but as you can see the political confrontation in china. continues thank you very much alexandra.

8:27 am
allow parliament to have a say on the indicative vote expected next wednesday on. and for a second time this month venezuela is struck by a major power outage transportation. services were stalled in the capital caracas at least sixteen of the country's twenty three states have been affected. it has been four years since the coalition began its military offensive supporting the yemeni government against toothy rebels since then the war has displaced millions of people from their homes and hunger has become commonplace in some areas of the country twenty four million yemenis that's nearly eighty percent of the population need aid to survive ten million are facing extreme levels of hunger three million need treatment for severe mom nourishment they include two million children under the age of five and eighteen million yemenis can't get saved drinking water or
8:28 am
sanitation almost twenty million con get basic health care shereen a day me is a yemeni activist and scholar and joins us now from by skype from london on the terrio thank you very much and good to speak to you firstly can you give us we've gone through some of the figures that can you give us your view of what yemen has become now since that war started what kind of a country is it. well what you just described is what the u.n. calls the world's worst humanitarian crisis there is no catastrophe that's manmade that's bigger than what's going on in yemen right now children are dying every single day millions of people and create famine conditions and it's become unbearable for the citizens of yemen who not only are underground going. but also strikes and the situation is entirely devastating we have an entire health sector that's barely functioning people are not able to leave the country to seek medicine
8:29 am
that they aren't able to receive inside the country food is scarce why are scarce diseases like cholera are spreading and so it's the living conditions are really unbearable people are dying as we speak children are dying you know and from where you're sitting is there a solution to this conflict that will benefit the many people what we've seen so far in four years of this foreign intervention in yemen that bombing yemen has not resulted in any sort of peace that has not resolved any of the internal conflicts in fact it's made it worse what began as a civil conflict is now let into this unmanageable crisis and the only hope yemenis have for pieces for this international intervention to essentially stop arming yemen and stop stabbing any civilians to lift the blockade to open up the airports to end the occupation in certain parts of yemen there is absolutely no chance of peace no chance at rebuilding yemen and when there is so much one intervention that's devastated the entire country yemen is already quite an impoverished country
8:30 am
before this conflict so how even if the conflict ends what happens to the country how are the people going to survive and would they can you see them just needing to rely on aid for many years to come. i'm not sure yemen has definitely had its own now its fair share of civil law as i myself in my time in yemen have looked to through to civil west and no civil war has caused this much destruction in yemen yemenis even before the war it was a country in the middle east worst country relied on ninety percent of food and water was coming in from outside of yemen to trade and so i think if it's the blockade is lifted and yemenis have a chance set building these perhaps through a unity government and you know not only will aid flow but also trade hopefully which will revitalize yemen to a certain extent again no civil war has ever caused this much destruction yemenis
8:31 am
have never blockaded themselves throughout the silverware set occurred previously they never destroyed this much infrastructure because this much destruction and so i think yes they are probably going to need some kind of aid to to recover to survive but the same countries that are pledging aid during the ones that are in bombing them and have caused so much suffering so it's a bit of a hypocritical situation to rely on the same countries that have been determined to go and provide aid in rebuilding. damie thank you very much great to get you on. ok the preliminary findings of a u.n. investigation in northern afghanistan has found that a u.s. airstrike on saturday killed thirteen civilians and most of them were children the air strike in can do is followed a taliban raid that killed six afghan and american soldiers charlie ballasts has this report. what's left of one man's life on the back of

8:36 am
the unprofessional conduct the shady behavior nobody seems to think this much important well that's going to change i hope this summer of miller's report says the special counsel didn't decide if the president obstructed justice saying he didn't conclude the president committed a crime it also does not exonerate him democrats want to know what that means they want to see the evidence for themselves we have a four page summary written by somebody else not by rubber roller and that somebody else is not a disinterested party he's a political appointee. donald trump they will call the attorney general and the special counsel to testify before congress and they will push to get the report made public this investigation means trump will avoid a criminal court in this case but democrats are hoping that he can still lose in the court of public opinion. al-jazeera washington. one of the largest religious parties in algeria has joined the opposition to president abilities to to

8:57 am
a democratic party members who stayed away from the gathering in point to protest against the methods of the pro israeli lobby eight democratic candidates for president are actually boycotting this very conference so let me be clear on this point. anyone who aspires to the highest office in the land should not be afraid to stand with the strongest supporters of israel in america restrained applause from the democratic party leaders that did turn up including both the senate minority leader and speaker of the house. the major event of the day though took place down the road where prime minister benjamin netanyahu arrived for a meeting with the u.s. president. to mark the occasion by signing a presidential decree recognizing israel's claim to suffering teeth over the occupied golan heights. were met by the israeli prime minister's breathless

gratitude this president over the use of israel has been blessed to have many friends who sat in the oval office but israel has never heard a better friend the new israeli opposition leader benny gantz as grateful as the prime minister for the u.s. move but at the same time warning against israel taking sides in the u.s. political process we want all of america republicans and democrats all of america's republican and democrats to move forward with us in this spirit of true bipartisanship that saved out that served us so well in the past all delegates here are keenly aware of the elections taking place in israel next month many will be voting in that one but a significant number two will also have a say in the u.s.
8:59 am
electoral process in twenty twenty and president trumps the city was pro israel policy perhaps a recognition of this lebanese influence in that process or hunch mike hanna al-jazeera washington. british m.p.'s have voted to take control of their brags agenda away from the government it is another crushing blow to prime minister terrorism may be forced to hand over control to parliament on wednesday and m.p.'s will then try and work out a way forward may says the move sets an unwelcome president the barker has more from westminster m.p.'s who voted confidently in favor of the oliver letwin amendment that would allow m.p.'s to hold a series of so-called indicative votes on wednesday on a whole range of possible breaks and options possibly a much softer breaks into reserve amaze own story deal one that sees the u.k. remain closely aligned to the east customs union in single market possibly also
9:00 am
a debate and vote on another e.u. referendum the list is seemingly endless what is very damaging though for the prime minister is the fact that thirty conservative m.p. m.p.'s from her own ranks have defied what is and voted in support of this amendment to chose an increasingly lack of confidence in the prime minister and being able to deliver bricks a tool earlier in the day the prime minister said that it wasn't time as yes' to bring her stall deal back to the house for another go it's already been voted down resoundingly twice before but they could possibly be a way out of this political impasse for the prime minister if m.p.'s only when the state decides to show a degree of consensus around a much softer version of breaks it than to reason may's own plans it could in theory force many hard line breaks
9:01 am
a ts who have so far resisted supporting the prime minister time actually decide now to back her deal so we may well see to resume ace plans return to parliament later on in the week but right now the political scenario and strategy for the government is very unclear m.p.'s have made it very very clear to the prime minister that they are determined to define the brakes at battlefield in the coming days. for the second time in a month venezuela has been struck by a major power outage at least sixteen of the country's twenty three states have been affected by the blackout what led to this latest outage is unclear at this point but the information minister says the main hydroelectric dam was attacked i was under amputees following this story from my cow in colombo. again just like two weeks ago most of the capital.

most of the country with electricity so the government. that once again it was a case of sabotage that it was an attack but in this case they were able to fix it in roughly five or six hours i spoke to people in the catholic thing they all said they were very worried most of them i got their life back but they said they were very worried that this could happen again and they were very distressed by what had happened two weeks ago they had hoped that that was the end of it and he's there now they're seeing the black going again. they have plans he wants to lead an al-jazeera. it would be ironic wouldn't it that the report turns into something we can all agree upon which is let's move on and work together we'll be getting more on their reaction to the robert miller investigation out of the u.s. . and the on ending misery caused by four years of war in yemen now we look at the humanitarian cost and its impact on yemenis.

9:18 am
important. well that's going to change i hope the summary of miller's report says the special counsel didn't decide if the president obstructed justice saying he didn't conclude the president committed a crime it also does not exonerate him democrats want to know what that means they want to see the evidence for themselves we have a four page summary written by somebody else not by rubber roller and that somebody else is not a disinterested party he's a political appointee. donald j. trump they will call the attorney general and the special counsel to testify before congress and they will push to get the report made public this investigation means trump will avoid a criminal court in this case but democrats are hoping that he can still lose in the court of public opinion. al-jazeera washington.

9:21 am
no collusion with russia and insufficient evidence of obstructing justice donald trump says the investigation completely exonerates him but does it really and will the for report be released this is inside still. hello welcome to the program has him seek him it's been the biggest question for donald trump during his u.s. presidency so far did he conspire with the russians to help get elected no he
9:22 am
didn't is the result of the two year investigation by special counsel robert mueller but investigators can give a definitive answer on whether the president obstructed justice or not trump was quick to tweet no collusion no obstruction complete and total exoneration keep america great but leading democrats say the summary of the report by attorney general william barr raises as many questions as it on says that demanding full access to what else the report says patty cohen reports from washington. it's the investigation u.s. president donald trump has long condemned as a witch hunt in till it was released and now the president is cheering the findings there was no collusion with the russia there was no up structure. and none whatsoever. and it was a complete and total exoneration that's not completely true the attorney general
9:23 am
says there is no evidence the trim campaign coordinated with russian officials but on obstruction of justice the special counsel robert mueller didn't decide if he should be charged the attorney general made that call and in his letter to congress he made clear this report doesn't find the president didn't possibly commit a crime right in the special counsel states that while this report does not conclude that the president committed a crime it also does not exonerate him and that is democrats demanding answers jerry nadler heads the committee in congress that will be investigating turning general clark. who are different for his role you don't remember in the suggesting that the obstruction investigation was on fungible and that a president and that it was almost impossible for any president to commit a dropping of justice he's the head of the executive branch made a decision about that evidence and under forty eight hours this inclusions raise more questions than the answer given the fact that muller uncovered evidence that
9:24 am
in his own words does not exonerate the president he's promising to call officials to testify and vowing to get the tens of thousands of pages of evidence that have been collected in the trunk campaign was quick to try and use this to bolster his chances of reelection really see in this video evidence is pretty clear that there was collusion in the president's proclaiming victory but as congress pushes to make all the evidence public and with several other investigations ongoing he may want his supporters to believe it's over it isn't political al-jazeera washington. were during his twenty two month investigation will have brought charges against thirty four people including former trump aides who pleaded guilty mainly to lying to the f.b.i. fraud and obstructing justice the list includes michael flynn trump's former national security adviser former can deputy campaign manager rick gates george papadopoulos
9:25 am
foreign policy adviser former lawyer michael cohen and poor man a for trump's format campaign chairman awaiting trial in november is roger stone trump's old friend and adviser has pleaded not guilty to lying to congress obstruction and witness tampering that's connected to the wiki leaks e-mails from hillary clinton's campaign and twenty five russians working for either intelligence or internet agencies also charged in addition to a russian aid to poor man a fourth. well let's bring in our panel now to talk more about this in washington d.c. we have j.d. gordon he was the national security director on donald trump's twenty sixteen presidential campaign he was also interviewed about alleged collusion as part of the miller investigation in new york we have jeannie zeno she is a political scientist and prefer fett professor at iona college and joining us from
9:26 am
washington as well via skype we have david good friend a lawyer who previously served as the deputy staff secretary to president bill clinton good to have you all with us. so j.d. gordon let me let me start with you the special counsel robert mueller did not find the did not find president donald trump was guilty of obstruction of justice but he didn't find him innocent either so isn't all of this celebrating from from people on the trump side a little premature at this point. well i don't really think there's anything to celebrate i mean here you have a stealth coup attempt to remove a president who was elected by the american people you have dozens of people who have had their lives shattered including me i was the director of national security for the campaign i was interviewed for three congressional committees and the special counsel multiple times i had to spend five figure legal bills to defend myself so i did nothing wrong i wasn't accused of doing anything wrong but yet i
9:27 am
was maligned on c.n.n. and m s n b c and international media for the past two years this has been a crime wave of defamation against the president and people who are close to him and people who are not even close to him frankly some of the advisors on the campaign for instance carter page and others were maligned and did nothing wrong so this is a tragedy for the united states is going green what was saying on the radio this morning one of the world's most prestigious progressive journalist he said the whole trump russia issue was a scam and a fraud based on conspiracy theories that were idiotic in moronic while said the great glenn greenwald i couldn't agree with him more could i ask you though j.d. go on about the did the questioning as part of the investigation that you took part in with the miller came out i'm not going to get into the contents of all of it but what was your overall all impression of it impartiality the lack of
9:28 am
impartiality was it was it handled fairly from your point of view. well i was interviewed by six different prosecutors and agents and analysts since twenty seventeen over multiple times and i would say that five out of six were collegial and professional one was not however what i told them is they've attempted to turn the entire campaign into a crime scene and that's what they did with every e-mail or every communication you could possibly imagine they brought in five hundred witnesses. case over three hundred orders for communications they had some of the subpoenas to people who had to get lawyers to defend themselves because once the f.b.i. is investigating a campaign of which you are a part you don't know where it's going to lead so several people were really shaken down i think it was a shakedown of so many people people are going to jail or are in jail have been in jail for nothing to do with collusion with russia which was the stated purpose for
9:29 am
these investigations this was a shakedown in a political scandal like we've never seen in this country before i hope it never happens again but in order to do that we have to hold people accountable who started this investigation in these witch hunts in the first place so was was president trump right to spend two years trashing the miller investigation as as a witch hunt and a hoax and fake news and tweeting about it over one hundred times as he did because his critics would say if he was innocent if he if he had nothing to hide he certainly wasn't acting like it of course he was right to do it because it was an illegal attempt to remove him from office now that said it didn't just come out of the blue in twenty sixteen after the elections hope picks who was his chief spokeswoman told the media that there were no contacts during the campaign with any foreign entities well that was just false she should have said that but she was a communications director who was in her mid twenty's she basically. did did a lot of us a great disservice including the president. david good friend for months we've been
9:30 am
hearing from prominent democrats and critics of president trumping that let the miller investigation play out in malawi trust than all the rest of it and we'll take it from now now according to the summary of the report the president did not collude with russia so when it democrats go from here first i need to respond to some of the comments that we just heard listen i have a lot of friends from when i worked in the clinton white house who also had to hire lawyers who also had to spend money and time and effort defending themselves and not once do i recall hearing anybody from the republican party saying that that was inappropriate i think it was perfectly appropriate for. the special counsel in that case and the special counsel in this case to do a thorough dispassionate objectively careful investigation and i'm really sorry that there are some people who had to spend money on lawyers just as i am really sorry that some of my friends in the clinton white house had to spend money
9:31 am
on lawyers that's too bad that's part of our system it's how it works and the fact that we have over thirty let me repeat over thirty indictments with convictions at a criminal level of some of the highest ranking people in the trump organization means this was not a witch hunt there were real crimes committed real bad deeds done and there's real consequences for that now the report says they did not find collusion with russia well guess what starr didn't find anything wrong with whitewater but he found monica lewinsky again too bad these are real wrongdoings that real people did and they are suffering the consequences if there is any question as to whether or not this report is accurate let's see the report in fact. we need transparency let's see not only the entire text of the report but all supporting documents all the interviews all the e-mails everything that was collected so that the country
9:32 am
can see this was indeed a thorough dispassionate and real investigation i think the more light we shine on this the better when you get secrecy when you get cloak and dagger hiding and lying and all kinds of obfuscation that's when people suspicions or raise you want to have a clean slate let's get it out there and frankly i don't think the courts or an impeachment proceeding are the right place to handle this i think the american voters can make a very adult decision next year after they've seen all the facts as whether or not they want to reelect this man as their president but i want to ask you though david good friend despite the fact that the that the conclusion here is the president has and his team did not collude with russia or at least the president did not collude with russia we have the head of the judiciary committee the democratic controlled judiciary committee saying that he wants to pursue this further any and that he's not satisfied with what's come out so far what do you say to those who who argue
9:33 am
that the democrats are that this is just a fishing expedition here and this this needs to be put to bed. well i say that's wrong what congress does in its oversight role is oversee you have a cabinet level official the attorney general and a deputy attorney general who within less than forty eight hours of receiving the report decided that on the issue of obstruction of justice the second issue that was investigated here both collusion and obstruction on the issue of obstruction they said even though the muller report said they were not exonerating the president and not coming to conclusion they the attorney general in the deputy attorney general decided not to pursue it well let's understand the reasoning behind that decision that's perfectly kosher for a congressional committee to ask they can bring up the attorney general and the deputy attorney general under oath in front of the committee in ask how is it that
9:34 am
within less than forty eight hours of receiving this multi hundred page report you immediately came to the conclusion that there was no room for an obstruction of justice claim let's understand your reasoning and have it out again transparent open in the light of day everyone can see let's hear their reasoning loud and clear and perhaps at that point everybody says ok that makes sense you made a reasoned judgment i will point out however that the special counsel referred this case to multiple u.s. attorneys offices and that you have multiple attorneys general throughout the united states still investigating the president this is not the end but i think we've learned anything it is that keeping things in darkness in secrecy is a bad idea we should have it out in the open we should release the full text of the report we should release all the documents that were collected i mean these are taxpayer dollars we spent doing this investigation let's see what our money paid for and the more that's out in the open the better all right kinney's i know let's
9:35 am
get your take on they so i mean as we said this is being seen as a as a as a significant victory for president trump and some would say lifted the cloud that's been hanging over his presidency but are there other questions that remain unanswered. there are i mean we need to be clear it was probably close to a best case scenario for the president this weekend except for the fact that and again we have not seen the report so we're going this on this based on what barr has said except for the fact that muller did not come to a conclusion he sort of kicked the can down the road on this issue of obstruction so we do need to see the full report because let's not forget barr famously before he even went before the senate committee in terms of his nomination and confirmation had made it very clear for what many lawyers think is very odd reasoning that the president simply could not obstruct justice so that was
9:36 am
a foregone conclusion for barr and within less than forty eight hours after getting the miller report in some very you know what we think would be you know very difficult circumstances he comes to that conclusion again so we do need to see the full report in order to understand what miller found that said we can't deny that this was except for the obstruction issue the best case scenario for the president he didn't see his son he didn't see his son in law or others close up in higher ups in the campaign indicted that was very good news for him but i think we need to take a step back here and remember what muller did find that everybody agrees with and that is the fact that russia meddled in the two thousand and sixteen presidential election in the united states we had over twenty indictments we still have over twenty indictments on that front now he did not find that anybody in the trunk campaign conspired with the russians but he does find there were many attempts to
9:37 am
reach out to the campaign and indeed contact was made again they didn't conspire but there was meddling in the campaign we are a year and a half from the twenty twenty campaign and as some. he who deals with election administrators all the time i can tell you nothing in this country of substance has been done to address this issue we are still as vulnerable in insecurity today as we were in twenty sixteen and if there's anything that comes out of this investigation it should be that we need to do a better job of securing our elections before two thousand and twenty we have a federal system these are fifty separate elections in fifty states and these election administrators and they need the money and the support and the know how to secure these elections because this is a huge problem in the united states and remains so all right we'll put some of that back to j.d. gordon in a moment but i just want to come back to what you said earlier genies they know that about the full report the need for the full report to be released that is
9:38 am
something that at the moment is largely up to attorney general william barr what is your take on how he's handled this so far can he be trusted to handle this subjectively and not be influenced by politics because he he has said that he will release as much of it as he can within the law. yeah i mean i think that bill barr has handled this well so far it is a little bit again i think going to raise suspicion which is what we are trying to fight against that this was done so quickly in forty eight hours the obstruction conclusion that said he said he is going to go over the report with a fine tooth comb remove anything for instance the grand jury testimony that cannot be released and release the report we need to see that happen i do think anything not released we will see a court fight and we will see an attempt and i think ultimately the release of most of this report that is what let's not forget the president asked for the
9:39 am
administration asked for republicans and democrats in the house all asked for so this is something that the american public deserves to see and we also need to remember the whole reason for this investigation was to assure the american people that they can have confidence in our system our election system the outcome and there would be a thorough investigation to not release the report again excepting anything that damages national security or ongoing investigations as we know i'm in the southern district as are going on now anything except in that we need to see the full report and i do think we will and i think bill barr will try at least as far as we know his reputation to do that and we're going to have both and i hope republicans and democrats in congress push for that sooner rather than later oh it j.d. gordon what about releasing the full report then if nobody did anything wrong here what's wrong with releasing the whole thing and is if as you said earlier president
9:40 am
trump was legitimately elected by the american people what's wrong with letting the american people decide for themselves and see all of the evidence laid out before them while the problem with that is about five hundred people were interviewed by the special counsel and if you see the whole report you're going to see all five hundred so what will happen is the media will pick through all five hundred try to defeat each. one and will try to say this person did that this person may have done that look i've been defamed for the past several years now by c.n.n. and s. and b. c. they kept putting my picture on the screen constantly to say i had secret contacts with the russians and when you peel the onion back they're talking about a handshake with the russian ambassador in a group of fifty ambassadors at the orange sea national convention in cleveland in july twenty sixth i was a guest speaker at a u.s. state department program for over fifty for an ambassador i shook all their hands because that was my job and later on at an evening reception i chicken say to the russian ambassador search a kiss and a few other bastards in a small group for
9:41 am
a few minutes but the mainstream media in the united states labeled it as j.d. gordon had two secret meetings with the russian ambassador is entirely false i don't know why anybody would want to watch c.n.n. or m s n b c again because they lied to the american people they misled people on a daily basis that's why people think the way they do all right the the media's role in all of this is a subject for another discussion but as far as the reports itself as as jeanie zaino said there there is a lot of there's a lot of evidence that this been uncovered show that shows the russians did something the russians tried to to influence this election as an american isn't that something that concerns you regardless of what party you're from regardless of which candidate you support. well absolutely the russians certainly did meddle in the election it was horrific but there are are you have been reports released about the house intelligence committee released a report that talked about it last year and they said there was no evidence of
9:42 am
collusion wow what a surprise we already knew this before at least a year from the house intelligence committee so i think this is a canard it's a sham it's a fraud and getting back to what david good friend had mentioned i'm surprised he didn't say the clinton investigation was a witch hunt i think it was a witch hunt to it it's reprehensible that it happened but mine my message for david is two wrongs don't make a right but thirty five people indicted doesn't sound like a witch hunt does it well most of those people were russians will never see the inside of a courtroom as far as a single several americans who have been indicted. and of the president can talk. yeah i know i know well he had business dealings with ukrainians that he was caught because he didn't pay us taxes he didn't register as a foreign agent so i'm not saying that he should have been punished in some way i'm saying that it had nothing to do with collusion the whole the whole narrative which
9:43 am
was a false narrative said that the trump campaign and president trump colluded with the russians by rumor and innuendo so yeah six trump associates were indicted but those were for things that were process crimes that were they were for they were strong armed into getting tripped up for perjury traps in some cases like general flynn and george papadopoulos roger stone appears to be in that same boat his trial is later this year but the other story will go to prison for other things financial crimes and for tax evasion nothing to do with the commission which was the stated reason for the investigation david good friend how do you respond to that put up with started all of this by mistakingly telling aide australian spy about conversations between the campaign and the russians that's what started this the australian intelligence agency then transferred that information to the u.s. intelligence agencies and that is what i believe george papadopoulos was caught lying about under oath and that's why he was convicted of perjury these are not
9:44 am
unrelated strands these are all related to the underlying issue and by the way i do agree with you that lots of people are now saying that our intelligence agencies agree there was russian meddling in the campaign that seems to be a given fact why is it then that the only person who seemed to be disputing that was donald trump himself who publicly stated that he didn't believe it was so who publicly said that seventeen u.s. intelligence agencies must be wrong because he donald trump was right who insisted on a private no present no advisors meeting with vladimir putin around the same time look you can say that the special counsel didn't find collusion and that certainly is true but i. i think the issue is transparency here when you have a president who is clearly trying to not be forthcoming in the facts this is what you get that's why i think the best and the best antidote to this whole situation is full disclosure get the report out get the notes and the underlying documents
9:45 am
out and yes you may have to say that was me with a bunch of other ambassadors but that's what we call transparency that's giving the american public the full picture so that next year when they go to the polls if you make an informed decision about whether or not to reelect donald trump all right we're going to have to leave it there are a great discussion we could certainly spend a lot longer talking about this one fortunately we are out of time j.d. gordon jeanie zaino and david good friend thanks very much for being with us and thank you for watching as always you can see this program again any time by visiting our website at al-jazeera dot com and for further discussion you go to our facebook page that's facebook dot com forward slash a.j. incised or you can also join the conversation on twitter handle there is at a.j. inside story for me has i'm sick and the whole team here but for now.

of knowledge it was a breach of trust and i just want to be clear that you're going to take early action in this film we go into companies with facebook's content moderation is to reveal how facebook decides what you can see that plant. growth you can a little bit of them so their birthright focus for her to do so for us it's pretty books is with billions of pieces of contents uploaded every day these decisions how far reaching consequences. of the woods on you is not necessary. but how they're made has been shrouded in secrecy until now you should see action in this film we go into a company with facebook's content moderation is to reveal how facebook decides what you can see that. it's good for you to report of them so their birth for them go to school. so for us it's pretty but. with billions of pieces of comes and it's
9:55 am
uploaded every day these decisions how far reaching consequences. a video of the woods on you is not necessary. but how they're made has been shrouded in secrecy until now you should see action. in this film we go undercover with facebook's content moderators to reveal how facebook decides what you can see that. it's good for you to look at the foot of them so they're both proud of them voted for we're going to iowa so for us it's pretty but. with billions of pieces of content uploaded every day these decisions have far reaching consequences. a video of the one volume is not necessary. but how they're made has been shrouded in secrecy until now you should see action in this film we go undercover
9:56 am
with facebook's content moderators to reveal how facebook decides what you can see that function. is good for you do a little bit of them so they're both proud of them voted for radio iowa so for us it's pretty boxes with billions of pieces of content uploaded every day these decisions have far reaching consequences. a video of someone's audience is not necessarily told you. but how they're made has been shrouded in secrecy until now you should see. these journeys in a facebook to bring about health care at the meeting not the whole company this year facebook published a set of rules about what content is allowed on this platform. to be on our reserve the walls and gates faith and trust in facebook that's the reason i think the great
9:57 am
partner they want that we work for but former content moderators have told us there are serious problems with the way these rules are applied so we're going under the company of facebook to launch a sense of the u.k. content moderation in something. facebook has outsourced a lot of its activity our reporter is working for. company called c.p.l. resources. this is a piece of policy that should be speaking to the worker basis of topics ok to be you know to store for patients and doctors not. facebook a highly secretive about the world. so again no matter how wrong you are you sure that you don't actually reveal the information what you actually do with your. so of the which you give you the first call are going to see what you're going to do it was a call to whatever. the phone first exposes. or these
9:58 am
flaws we are. every week millions of pieces of content to reports it's a facebook by users who think they should be deleted. so these are some of the examples these are the photos that we're going to delete because these are the nipples yours are not tough for why you wanted to exclude the phone and not your life it's completely open so in that case we are going to. unlike other media that there was little regulation restricting what can appear on the social network so the decision to delete or ignore is entirely up to facebook. and it started off in us colleges and then we launched in u.s. high schools and a little bit in u.s. corporations and since when we opened up the site actually last ember sex.

started exploding internationally when i first met zuck he was twenty two years old and from that moment forward for a period of about three years i was one of the people that he turned to for mentoring. venture capitalist roger mcnamee was woman facebook's early investments an immense. so found among. he was absolutely convinced that connecting the world was possible and that that should be his mission we believe really deeply that if people are sharing more then the world will be a more open place where people can understand what's going on with the people around them and that's really what we want to get towards i was more proud of facebook than anything i'd ever done in a thirty five or six your career. before i understood what was going.
10:00 am
there for a good few glitches. earlier months for. one of the most sensitive areas of facebook's content rulebook is the section on graphic violence just you know a good. look at it it's a feel good stuff and so i go for whatever the books. we have our three options we have are no more there's no option taken to lease a rubric from facebook our mark of the service is restrictions on place of you're going to see the contents of how it is presented its when content is marked as disturbing a warning is added to make the content viewable users must click on this warning under eighteen should not be able to view the content but it remains on the site and freely available to anyone claiming to be over eighteen a video or so one guardian is not necessarily going to get thirty forty one of your markets to buy separate one just because it is
10:01 am
a work of policy that marks change or not basically both are a few. critical items through a war room where there is under considerable loss and it's being dissolved in the. videos of people who don't do not show but a newbies who just mark resistance of the book and still share them like raise awareness and work. so that was part of. the next policy discharging feeds this is video news for sure child abuse and it's defined as warm up before. the kids can be caring for sloppy overshadowed by other words or monologue there are also the conflicting o'berg book called the boy audio or the coffin rotating or shooting or if it was too young to start by the wrists i both arms are not.
10:02 am
always more. or less. it's. you recognize those images and i feel as if you know. what video from they are from. that was sent to us from one of all supporters asking for help with. some d. i am in boxes on this facebook page without. asking for help because. i thought they'd sin and they were obviously i was scared they didn't want to call .
10:03 am
saw initially see a little tiny boy it was about two or three on the video with a man talking to him which i not say. and then he was hit him and punched him it was so i am about on the newest stump and he can all name and then i'll be so the video call saul. l.f. if. absolutely no say not paul from a sickening feeling not you've just you've seen some autonomy little boy. i mean you know yourself from watching that video. not just go to. the noise. you are so he can get out your ass. you say and that's all you think about is a little why a maybe say in that way we say was happening to him you're full of idiots and. i am
10:04 am
i did. and we received. messages back saying we didn't violate their terms and conditions. this is our. their life wasn't made. no gray area but it's so interesting to the mobster yeah because it's so obvious he's still technically on. our reporter asked another moderate so why he thinks some graphic content gets mocked is disturbing rather than deleted you know what they're raising is behind the murder using. people all over the over all the years it's all for kids with warnings and. yeah and also for. the. g. thing it should just be delayed and like i said. no cancel it. don't assume of censorship
10:05 am
them ok if your search zones are inferior you can lose interest but it's all good it's all about going to work. in the first two days after it was posted on facebook the video of the little boy being beaten was shared more than forty four thousand times. from facebook point of view this is essentially. you know the crack cocaine of their of their products right it's the really extreme really dangerous form of content that. attracts the most highly engaged people on the platform. facebook understood that it was desirable to have people spend more time on site if you're going to have an advertising based business you need to see the ads who want to say what facebook has learned is the people on the extremes of the really valuable. because one person on either extreme can often provoke fifty or one hundred other people and so they will live as much extreme content as they can
10:06 am
get. we put the results of our investigation to facebook's vice president of global policy. shocking contents does not make us more money is just a misunderstanding of how the system works shocking content surely keeps people on facebook that means it's more likely that they will view advertising that makes you money that's why shocking content is good for facebook again i don't that's not our experience of the people he's also it's around the world there is a minority who are prepared to abuse our systems and other internet platforms to share the most offensive kind of material by just don't agree that that is the experience that most people want and that's not the experience we're trying to deliver. there's no thousand as a couple of other options on that page so that with that we have is looking to see if you can find anything on gaggle of kevin and if. going on for
10:07 am
a while with no idea where to go with ace and if you put a facebook not just saw a scene with they have three of his just say to try and find out some information on that video and to tell you i say. well boston big dog discovered you can go. over there go get his b. we do it for. you but there's nothing all you got to do our policies for life that you're always right and your goods this is going to be videos that are not worth i'm not munching on person to people. it's all photos. so you just go for the coalition. for your gold for the world but in order to move. our investigation found that unless they are streamed live
10:08 am
videos of physical child abuse and not usually reported to the police. or sold him destination price as a follow up price. and may be. asked to be not so. perfect and on and on and on child because it will be a story. about dad hearing stuff like. the carpenters are still coming so the racial cards are all right or otherwise just far as we're concerned of course research from current user. i know it's weird but i spoke to anything i would day cost a play on that's if you see something where the child is going to read by the supers with a large to the case of the right you carry those lawyers may have different carbis i've heard of star trek a video store again recently the story isn't all going to be reported by off to the police i think the reality is someone is going to it's going to be. most united now
10:09 am
about how. hello boys we've found out this was in malaysia that this child. it was a stepfather and been arrested and jailed for twelve months. how long ago was it that you first came across the video and that was in i think it was december two thousand and twelve. i saw it's being thick here it's almost. it's a video still on facebook yeah. this video is used in facebook's training as an example of the kind of child abuse that should be marked as disturbing and left almost silent. if that's being used as an example for motivators of what is considered acceptable to say what is
10:10 am
a total of eight it on facebook is is is is truly shocking this is just a haitian for why they allow. in or they of the indication and rescue of victims of physical abuse we may not immediately remove this content from facebook it's perfectly possible for facebook to take down footage of child abuse and for that to be passed to the north or for copies of the t.v. or to be retained if that will assist in a law enforcement in a police say investigation it's difficult to conclude why that material would need to stay on the site we know that for as long as that content command on a social media site then that exacerbates the trauma that children might feel not only has that child been subject to sustained physical abuse but unfortunately that child is being. abused by. the fact that that content is there for anyone to go
10:11 am
into facebook and see fortunately the child being the abused with every claim. on facebook and individual shared it i want to be clear that that's not acceptable that shouldn't be that material should have been taken down on the site that you went to the c.p.l. site you see part of the total system so those are the front line reviewers but behind them sits a team of child safety experts facebook full time staff they will make an assessment of whether the child is at risk they will make a decision about what to do with the content including referring it to law enforcement agencies whether that's a program. after we made facebook aware of this child abuse it was still available on the platform they told us they have now reviewed the material used to train new moderators. this were
10:12 am
all a bit just one car. so they were just saying basically if i said to me i'm pretty show that minus. is kind of just so you go but. they soften up at the very mention of a school for. the pool so was moderating a video showing two teenage girls fighting both girls are clearly identifiable and the video has been shared more than a thousand times. one and definitely more i don't want to. face. she has said. that she's hope she's very selfless. and i. my friend for me. you don't care. i just saw it as
10:13 am
a video he tossed she saw the need to say it he say. start to fight. in the one throwing each other on the flaw. the salt. just posts time on my thoughts i. just repeat and thought nice and kicks in and the had an eye and just looks she just looks out of control bicyclists she looks like a wild animal to wake up and i stand behind i what should the whole world is watching as what i've seen at most a baby you know horrifying it was humiliating for. the video has been posted with a caption condemning the violence based on the new policy yeah that is one of the pitfalls republicans are. really rather you are even if it's from government money
10:14 am
i mean if you look everybody condemning is a reason for working both what would go over well. or the whole book. following a recent change to the public see even experienced moderate says i'm not sure whether the video should be deleted almost as disturbing i'm left on the sites where they go. but the saw anything on the video was recorded in the mourners unless it was condemning books of its ability. or was this one of them out of business and out. of them ok. because there's a caption condemning the violence the video gets mugged is disturbing and i'm left alone the signs. from. me showed footage from undercover filming to the girl's mother.
10:15 am

a video of that child in circumstances that the. they object to they do have the right to insist that we take it down and we do take it down where we're made aware so you're putting the onus on the victim here to complain to you why aren't you taking this material down before humiliates children and again if the content is shed in a way that praises or encourages that violence is going to come down but where people are highlighting an issue and condemning the issue even if the issue is painful there are a lot of circumstances where people will say to us look facebook you should not interfere with my ability to highlight a problem that's occurred as people watch these videos facebook's making money. yet the money we make is by people using the service and seeing ads within the newspaper. when you have forty billion a sales and tens of billions of profit per year even pretty much have an obligation to. do everything in your power to make sure that you're not making the world worse

10:23 am
with filming undercover in one of facebook's largest content moderation senses to reveal how the social network decides what you can see on its platform and ask someone. if they use a finds a piece of content they think is inappropriate they can ridicule since a facebook. the moderator will then decide whether almost it breaks the platforms
10:24 am
rules that were good for a few people who work for them so there are dearth of over them gorgeous or. so for us it's pretty good says. each of these reports is called a ticket and the tickets build up in the queues that the moderates is one of three of the three and a half weeks of training all reports and is now working through his own queue of tickets. while we were filming on the cover. was cool before the u.s. senate and accused of not doing enough to protect facebook's uses we want to hear more without delay about what facebook and other companies plan to do to take greater responsibility for what happens on their platforms. it's not enough to just build tools we need to make sure that they're used for good or in the last year we've basically doubled the number of people doing security and content review
10:25 am
we're going to have more than twenty thousand people working on security and content review by the end of this year. recently there's been a huge display good so getting reported on it we would close the book move so to do that fifty shows were forced to be the two of us try to do maybe continue to do is sit through those new day and she does move quicker to rebuild them such as more people with. facebook aims to assess all reported content within twenty four rounds but it's become clear that there is a backlog of fifteen thousand tickets that have been waiting longer than last year i just want to say how is that different for the active faculty and i mean. it's really recognized not just with ac you have on the higher level in the mountains my facebook. i know the last couple of weeks have been really hard is crazy i feel this understaffed and the three days. over and over
10:26 am
it's like fifty seven hours in the house like over six hundred sixty five tickets and not one bar ok so our latest five day is eighteen hours and forty five that's very hard because our turnaround time for this q. is twenty four hours. so that means we have to get everything down by twenty four hours and i'm not going to have the order books so within the high risk area but there be anything like. someone saying i'm going to crisis in ten minutes. with that yes. any reports that related to somebody at risk of suicide would not have gone into the queue where there was a backlog they would have gone into a high priority queue where we were meeting the stand as we've checked since you brought this issue to us and we're very confident that even in that period where we had a backlog in the normal cute we did not have a backlog in the series i q so the c.t.o. moderation was rolled there were all these licenses yes right ok facebook told us
10:27 am
this backlog was cleared by the sixth of april and they are doubling the number of people working on safety and security. base of course is really for them because they have every other five hundred. thousand hard place to go far for wi-fi revise these weighed more than many other things. undercover reporter is being trained in how to deal with content relating to self home. phones are examples over three sites out there on any material promoting self harm or suicide gets deleted in the first one we have part of their costs they don't read or write or i feel i'm ok let me say wait so be for some reason you have a right. so if we're all here and i will be any material that
10:28 am
shows self home but doesn't promote says it's called self harm admission and gets left on the site without a warning so anything you do know without a sure we are going to send a check point is because we want to sound resources to operate like the i phone five respect for how although for me with self home admission the user who posted the contents of the sensor message called a checkpoint containing information about mental health support services. or means of research and like these. so. i think that probably around sixty five percent of my scars tribute to the impact social media has had on me. there's definitely a bit of
10:29 am
a rush of adrenaline. amazed that in the blood was a release because it reminded me that there was something inside of me and that i wasn't as empty as i felt what all these fine. really fine so your recent trip point for so. were. somebody that i met who had facebook she used to regularly post pictures of herself home before they were healed and before there was scar and i would look at her picture as and then there was also a group that i used to follow on facebook. and that i was surrounded myself with people that were solved hamann it encouraged me a lot more it became a bit of a competition in that after all i needed to do. that i needed to
10:30 am
have with self harm. the other person. was to mold raising our reporter comes across graphic images of self. over the phone booths to schools or look good all right. so for the food with the juice. so promote. first let's see more of. those positives. it's not a private you can see that people have of a badly cut themselves as old scars there so this isn't just a one off and they're cutting themselves that's not appropriate that's not ok.
10:31 am
misery loves company so if you can get out there and you can actually see people doing the thing that kind of is a representation of their misery there might be something. attractive in that and no track to live to or a mind that isn't functioning how it should be. or more your. looks are most. of the hour nothing more towards what was gone. frame for a year old or you're. using this every justification for for you and your images of yourself it's not really. you know there are healthier ways of doing that it's not that we don't want to listen to them it's not that we don't want to help them in the long run it's not
10:32 am
a healthy thing to do you know this needs this level of of harm needs proper professional intervention and putting stuff out on social media is not professional intervention. or the board. or don't drop school bus barrow and. force it to. feel for aggression using the drugs. or the mother or. i just think it's something that's going to be hard for other people to down to have an experience there i think that self harm is something that's so complex that . it can't be characterized in a guideline or in
10:33 am
a rule and it can't be understood by so. but he who doesn't understand how it feels to do that. now know. i'm strong enough for it not to affect me but i'm not strong enough to take the rest of it i believe that it wouldn't affect me completely believe that but i'm not prepared to take a chance. there's actually a very strong valid interest from that person if they're expressing distress to be able to express their distress to their family and friends through facebook and then get help and we see that happen every day that individuals are provided with help by their family and friends because the content stayed up if we took it down the family and friends would not know that that individual was at risk.
10:34 am
other two the juror music oh boy are there two so if your two are both so dirty. it's. pretty good we would jewing the training session on self home the issue of child uses comes up so we don't actually own a car or not is there a meeting you know great facebook's rules state that no one under thirteen can have an account you have over the lot but think they. know this photo yes so is the airline we ignore ok are you sure you go see where the cover. gets. so poker books so you can use for them someone is holding the books milker. yet let people know what. happened at the very three hundred no we just like it and i was going we don't know when the underage. facebook told us they only investigates
10:35 am
a user's age if someone has reported them as being under age. much of the content reported to facebook's u.k. moderates as relates to hate speech so i'm sure you're out there but you know what's right not to pay for your house for over forty robot while our personal opinions are. for movies when month appeared before the u.s. senate he was questioned on facebook's hate speech means our goal is to allow people to have as much expression as possible and i don't want anyone at our company to make any decisions based on the the political ideology of the content facebook say the rules are intended to protect certain groups from being abused or attacked on the platform or through. there are more of them for her to look forward
10:36 am
to. but we found moderators were sometimes told to ignore disturbing content before. we voted for of course. it's been around for more water. than ignore. for the last through your correlation you don't know or cigarettes are good for over. four years or four years force more golden rule to do through thought it was your form to call them first. so for this one should be for this is a revoke. her. facebook told as the picture does in fact violate the hate speech rules and they're reviewing what went wrong to prevent it happening again in order to create a service where everyone has
10:37 am
a voice we also need to make sure that people aren't bullied or or basically intimidated or the environment feels unsafe for them but on facebook not everyone gets the same level of protection i kind of instinctively think that if they look at it is really. all reports or is moderating the colemans says back to your own countries. it's been posted denethor video with the caption the film to muslims in the woods. and on to their. doctor and on three sides of the scene both immigrants mostly immigrants if you do that most of them you take this option but it doesn't so as a proxy for. facebook allows users to say more abusive things about muslim immigrants than it does about muslims. they are still muslim or even say it is muslim immigrants system muslims this is was an example there are. still hurts. you
10:38 am
know exactly like don't make someone retarded it's for you. than for three. to thirty others think the word. physical inferiority if you like muslim immigrants for talking go to. people are debating very sensitive issues on facebook including issues like immigration very currently and that political debate can be entirely legitimate that's why you allow people to say muslim immigrants get out of britain but not muslim get us britain we're trying to distinguish that between hate speech which is against a class of peace you don't think muslim immigrant get out of britain is hate speech you get there this is something that we've looked at in a lot of detail is very hot this is right on that line is a hate speech right on that line we've not defined it as hate speech if you are again expressing a view about the government's immigration policy. we discovered that some far right
10:39 am
pages receive special protection on facebook. veri sign will think this casting by saying that they write the british children. the britain first facebook page had more than two million followers when it was deleted in march while we were filming after its leaders were convicted of racially aggravated harassment. really not taken down. the wrong group or your. form the more bloke we've been tracking the page since it had three hundred thousand followers it ended up with up to two million followers at one point before that page was polled the question to me else why did it take so long about the british stuff it was pretty much work for you just so beautiful to see. remorse for lucian's with very little.
10:40 am
of look forward to her virtuous work. if a page has five pieces of content that violate facebook's rules our reporter was told it should be taken down britain first was a highly popular facebook page these pages a shield it and can't be deleted by ordinary content moderators at c.p.l. one it was never about threshold before it was taken down. oh i think. it is just a theory from is going to feel good. to me. what is actually may be the. but when he said i should have to go to another you have to use them and make them . sometimes like. you know just depends on what it is britain for if it's very very hot but. when shielded pages have contents that breaks the rules they're put into the shielded review queue so they can be assessed by facebook itself what does shooter of you actually main jury. will be doing
10:41 am
computer from her go through different pages or a lot of followers you don't want the reader you just. want people to sure they're together for reserves show for her for fear of argument or for them physical tools for triggers are yeah look i like how the prefer stuff you're talking about if it is a large page shifter they get so special consideration no order for. facebook special consideration appears to also apply to follow right thing ahead tony robinson but children are being killed they're being killed it cannot be invite to destroy them bust out from their being but shouldn't i mayn't even see said there's now so i can't so that's the future progeny of my shins in march this year robinson was permanently banned from twitter but his facebook page is still active this may he was jailed for contempt of course following a facebook live video he posted outside a course in leeds. one of these places comes
10:42 am
a time earlier so long. is there any point me looking for the content. but don't worry too much about to be there suppose those beaches are not shielded so if you do you believe them if you happen to be talking of video just go through this shield to. you know anything there. with nine hundred thousand followers robinson's facebook page is so popular it's been given the same protected status as governments and news organizations when they say freedom of speech with they're really saying is we really want to permit people to do whatever they want in this platform and we will do the bare minimum to make that socially acceptable their business model is really tied to being able to publish whatever they want and it once you understand the nature of large internet networks
10:43 am
is that the harshest meanest voices are going to dominate what you realize that the more open you make the platform inherently the more unpleasant inappropriate bad content you're going to get on it. why does tony robbins get a shielded account the same as the governments of the b.b.c. high profile localizations that are respected if the content is indeed violating it will go to the very valuable accounts these all go hundreds of thousands of followers again i would be clear this is not a discussion about money this is a discussion about political speech and i think people would expect us to be careful and cautious before we take down their political speech. we didn't come in . and day to misuse that's not going to. which is why facebook has changed from facebook has launched a high profile campaign to improve its image we didn't take
10:44 am
a broad enough view of our responsibility and that was a big mistake and it was my mistake and i'm sorry. i started facebook i run it and i'm responsible for what happens here i understand why it's been hard for people to come to grips with all this but the incentives to do so now are really compelling and i just hope that as a consequence of this film that the tone of the debate becomes sharper more focused more persistent and that we stop accepting their excuses we stop accepting vera surance says c.p.l. told is ensuring all trainers and employees are always fully trained and up to date on facebook policy changes is critically important to us so we are investigating this matter as a priority and taking immediate steps with facebook this is included conducting extensive refresher training within the last week for all all china's where one of
10:45 am
the most heavily scrutinized companies in the world and that's right we have a lot of reach to people in many different countries it's right that we're held high standards we also hold ourselves to high standards you've identified some areas where we failed and i'm here today to apologize for those failings of make it clear that we do recognize that they were witnesses that we should not be in this position all i can say is that we are committed wherever failings of brought to our attention to taking them seriously to addressing them and trying to make sure that we do better in future.
