11:22 pm
researching. i mean you are in the streets. after six weeks of protests calling for political reform and an end to the algerian president's twenty years in power absolutely. agreed to step down on tuesday according to state media but it doesn't appear to be the and for the popular movement for reform here to talk to us about our next steps in beirut and then a resident scholar at the khan center and infest morocco. and activists really good to have you here i'm just thinking in the last few weeks on social media the pictures of the protests have been so compelling but now that the president for algeria has stepped down what do you see there was a lot of enthusiasm online and is represented in this way this is who writes and
11:23 pm
yes we can and yes we just did it the president. has resigned indeed we are happy for this because it's an achievement but we should not forget that this is just one of so many demands we are seeking to achieve and will god willing and we will keep it peaceful you can see the enthusiasm there but also the hope for what is to come next you were just there on friday and i know you have plans to return again on this coming friday what are your friends and family who are there and were there yesterday what are they telling you about the mood on the street right now they are both celebrating but also awaiting the next mass demonstrations that will get izing harder. and they're hoping the protests a larger turnout because then just on the they may have removed the face of the regime but the system itself is still very much intact and
11:24 pm
they are seeking to dismantle it in its entirety and to build from here and effectively to develop the future leadership of the nation danios who showing that celebrate video from the streets of algeria in different places you were smiling so brutally is this mission accomplished all we done and do you take a moment to enjoy what you were protesting about. well you know as you may know i participated in that they will stray ssion on march twenty second and march twenty ninth and i observe as the political analyst that i am but also. with my heart us and julian citizen and i can't not say that i am very happy and very proud of what the people have achieved without any drop of blood
11:25 pm
being shed and i think jean gave a beautiful lesson of peace and how a peaceful movement can achieve goals however you know i am not skeptical that maybe i am realistic. you know there is still things to be done and algerian is that their demands are still you know they still have a lot of. it is sure that the men left but that algerian system is not a one man show behind the men there is a complex and all but regime and durians are today asking for us to to depart but also for the all of the guard to depart and including the chief army chief of staff. as a matter of fact on friday twenty nine they were seeing in the who would flee i would imagine gates side which means go go would flee and take with you gates. now
11:26 pm
tell you said that this is not a one man show and that was just a good way to sum up what people online are saying because they say it is so much bigger of course than just with a flicker through the south i expect the protests to grow bigger with the flick of resignation is just the first step in shaping the contours of algeria's political future this should not be about the president alone it should be about overhauling an entire political structure anchored on a leader's i'm now see the here on twitter got a response from another member of our commune. he talks he writes and says the first thought that came to me was it's about time but you are one hundred percent correct the entire political structure needs overhauling i hope they can do it but it's hard malea how would protesters and opposition members even go about that the answer is is not a clear one there isn't simply one to give and i think that the protesters are very
11:27 pm
clear about that and they're in they're in it for the long haul speaking to demonstrate to they said you know we'll continue marching for a year or two however long it's going to take for our country to be rejuvenated for a complete transformation of our society a complete redistribution of wealth and a complete. with the idea. our liberation struggle the for of our national struggle and identity and i think that it is with those aspirations in mind they are not looking for quick solutions or band-aid they're looking for long term. revolutionary what so earlier today a pool of the on the streets of people was still protesting have a look to because of the to the present day you know with all your power gates on the we're here to say to you and your clear get out because it was. for the folks
11:28 pm
over there and we're cafetiere against gay it's the army chief of staff who is part of the system part of the current regime doesn't remember much. i know you've written about this opinion piece in the new york times opinion another battle of algiers and you're talking here about the entire political system the military's involvement in it so if people are still protesting what do they want now remains that president now want. well the people are sick of this the regime that has been hijacking the country if i may say and the political system and the economic welfare there for the last twenty years not to say as a matter of fact since the independence of the country in one nine hundred sixty two people are fed up with that with also this won't do either ship we are talking about a country in which more than fifty five percent of the population is under age twenty
11:29 pm
five so people are generally in want a leadership that is younger and that can actually represent them as one protester said it once and he said it in french your grandkids you don't keep meaning i want to president who is able to treat so behind the you know the joke of there is a generation that is really capable of that and they're standing where he is at stake and we've seen it you know algerian showed a great degree of political maturity they stood up for their rights and they did it in a very peaceful way as they said of the protests they'd still mia which means peaceful and also how the are ya which means that. and i think what they want to day is to remove this all the guard but also you know while it is true that algerians have been asking for the military to engage and to remove they are also aware
11:30 pm
of the egyptian scenario if i may say they don't want to have another you know c.c. if i may say in algeria so this is why they've been asking gates to move and as a matter of fact i think that if gates saleh the chief of the army chief of staff moves and resign it will be it will be very good for him and. you know he would be remembered as this great. gennaro who made a historic. bet i think it is time for him to resign. if the president was on twitter he would see things like this this is chris who writes nothing is new under the sun the military will take over and bring back some rogues belonging to the old man's political party things will get worse and algeria and less democratic forces are really vigilant so that raises a few questions that another person in our community a former gaston
11:31 pm
a woman you heard just at the top of today's show yes i mean i loose here's the question she raised what we're seeing now is the transition and now by. the head of the national people's council and. now the little question surrounding . the military. and also what type of transition. to be reflective of the democratic aspirations of people. going to be and then reflect who says you know dreams have. to see and long it's just really. so she raised very valid questions there and then joe here on you tube watching live picks up saying what's the likelihood of the military allowing a genuinely democratic system to take hold in algeria mali i'll give that one to
11:32 pm
you. well the german protest. you know in many rounds now have demonstrated they're not willing to wait for them to deliver it all to create this transition if you will they will shape what comes next and they will decide it and they will make their opposition to whatever it is proposed very very clear and i think it's important to bear that in mind that the german people are not waiting for the remnants of the regime to provide them with what they think is a suitable leadership they will decide on and they will deliberate on the streets. and we're just going about to wrap up a bit many i'm just looking at a picture if you protesting this is a couple of weeks ago are you still going to go out and protest you have more protesting if you. have much more protesting in me and i will be alongside the algerian people especially as a member of the algerian diaspora it is incredibly powerful i'm moving to be
11:33 pm
amongst my people marching demonstrating and demanding freedom are you going to be out on the streets again are you done yes you know i just came back from jews do they go and i am and again to come back so if and that yes you will be joined by federer who tweets and the protests will continue on friday april fifth peacefully we want them out. thanks so much for joining us and now to chad where it's been more than a year since the chatty in government block social media access to its citizens use of services like whatsapp facebook and twitter was cut off amid economic and political anxieties in the country listen to what chatty an activist can by deed i mean had to say about the band's impact. let them in with the mothers a sense of the. indispensable is in the full sense of the last if only i must deliver this on the. glue this is in our kids who are.
11:34 pm
the cylons if you will. you see city. hall a good. example of. a symphony psystar sell. them on the automatic all of them are. in the air stream a little qualities of the decide the one that is it's just out of the money that ensued we're here to tell us more about this story from a proclamation antonio the african freedom of expression exchange and the network of freedom of expression and media rights advocacy organizations in africa welcome to the stream for leisha i want to start here with the author of this piece on african arguments child social media band reaches one year mark and it's published just a few days ago that is from samuel what i'm is who write the social media blackout in chad began on the twenty eighth of march twenty thousand budding protests that
11:35 pm
broke out after constitutional recommendations were made that would allow the president to rule in till twenty thirty three the recommendations have since passed into law and given the timing it's reasonable to assume that this blackout was unforced in an attempt to prevent protests from spreading so he explains there the reason behind this but police so what can you tell us about why it has lasted so long. thank you very much money. i would like to say about that if not the. government president you saw internet shutdowns or social media blackouts in order to call protests. like their rights are rightly said the government of chatter thought that through the use of social media blackout in order to reprise protests ongoing proof closest during their moments during their period for instance on march twenty eighth. there was a protest and the government have barred protests since for three and this is
11:36 pm
a trend that is going on in the on the african continent or if there is governmental like uganda coming through in sudan congo or rather grow as well as they do you are seen to mention but if you have resorted to do you think such repressive measures during protests or important national events like finish let me let me just illustrate that and that point is an organization called suppressor and they're called the collaboration on the international i.c.t. policy for east and southern africa and they actually illustrated the cost impact of what happens when you shut down the internet have a look here on my laptop as you mention there are other countries have also put a stop on the internet maybe banding for a little bit a little bit of time look at how much money these countries are losing and just focus here on chad over three million dollars over that amount tell us about the impacts that are happening to people when you shut down the internet in china for
11:37 pm
a year what seemed to us like you you said. i don't want feedback resorting to the you saw in kind of side bounce it's like should send yourself in default and that is the government. soul aside the economic implications of internet shutdowns we have the political fallout implications which means that most of the government's going to be needed that's going to use internet shutdowns our network destruction is able to call protest but those has proven wrong because what i ask you and progress back in sudan a few months ago the government you saw today you saw today you saw internet shadow but we still have this citizens under streets protesting what their rights that the award to their order change that they want to see in their country and little let's listen and chat here because i'm just really curious about how does your life change with no internet for a year give us an example. for instance we all know about the internet has become
11:38 pm
very critical in our daily lives and soul. so it was in todd forest. it means that it's never been. there one year without it without access to social media platforms and that you cannot communicate really with your partner needs and friends. and i thought of. how to expand that communication beyond boundaries and soul a you know about incredible means that you could not easily called me to create you could not use me maps where i swore i was. going to happen it's ironic you and also to come to an issue for freedom of expression obviously both social media blackout is affecting their work or generalised especially in generalities that use social media platforms to disseminate information you're going to lose a lot because of the kind of reached the audience that do you think reach a yet a goal and sole income i shut down the next read destruction of this nation
11:39 pm
playground politian of their fundamental freedom of expression rights and access information rights of citizens. here on twitter but i agree he says everyday life of charity and has deepened deeply impacted social media has created a deep connection between people of rural areas urban and diaspora and the shutdown has disconnected them the flow of information has stopped in time i read one more from samuel who illustrates that point even further he says the blackout house and friends on citizens' freedom of expression and right to information with increasing international pressure and mounting local activism there are hopes that they will be forced to restore access freesheet you being on the string today thank you so much for the show next a story out of uganda where academic and government critics to lead the anzhi is being tried for a sense of communication and cyber harassment now this isn't how first run in with the saudis listen to her address the court in a similar case in twenty seventy. this regime has offended this
11:40 pm

11:41 pm
when you saw that clip roseboro you would want to know a whole lot more for our international audience what more can you tell us about her and why she's in so much trouble. thank you turner is a very weak the person and she knows the power of the pair and the power of using. words that steep out of the social norm not only to discern ruppert those in power but also to upset social norms that how she gained all this following from facebook . building on her research and using in deploying vogue ality to challenge power so she is one of the most powerful people to communicate to bring back about going which is very much in our you know in uganda he street where ugandans deployed read good rudeness against the british colonisers so she's bringing back that he's tree and people don't know what to do with her for for many people she has the power to
11:42 pm
arrest you and tell you that which you would not want to hear in the ways you wouldn't want to hear so she will get that power in she's in jail because she is being charged with offensive communication in disturbing the peace of the president so we need to hear how would the peace of the president be described it has to be a person deploying challenging power in a very unconventional manner you mentioned radical rudeness as being her tactic their fear on twitter says that her tactics aren't really the issue here the issue is african governments are cracking down on dissidents and because culturally women aren't supposed to speak their voices are criminalized brutally which is picking up on and on the point you were making there but we also got a video comment rosewell from someone who says why she is so important this is shari out of a crowd here's what she told the stream what does dr salon yancey's activism mean to me it means bravery in the face of oppression it means speaking out and in
11:43 pm
particular as a black african woman daring to speak out at the risk of losing your job at risk of being humiliated and the risk of even injustice in the courts still resisting and speaking your truth and also inspiring the use who compose seventy seven percent of you comes for felician seventy seven percent of them are under city and . her resistance her strength is really inspiring not only for ugandans but on also for africans across the continent and the diaspora and i hope this pushes for more solidarity and support for us all to improve our societies rosewell talk to us about the impact that you see seller having. i think the impact taylor has is she's not just a conventional protests are challenging power she has the power of intersectionality last year she organized a women's march to challenge to protest to women being murdered in uganda she had
11:44 pm

11:55 pm
ababa bound for nairobi it crashed six minutes later near the town of the shaft to killing all one hundred fifty seven people on board it up is transport minister has now released the first official findings of the investigation into the crash with says the pilots did everything that was recommended by boeing that major objective of this investigation is to make sure that there is safety in the patients. it's not to blame someone it's not to get some sort of there are some things that we are going to do it as something very normal for in the procedures but of all the things to get results of these reports is going to have to ensure safety in the nation say. the pilots reportedly struggle to control the plane's automatic anti stalling system which is meant to push the nose of the aircraft downwards if it detects a stall or loss of a speed analysts believe this issue may have led to the crash the true reacted.
11:56 pm
quite correctly by carrying out a drill that has been pressed for bribes if this occurs and isolated this system which was trying to push the nose down but having done that. they then found that one of the control systems that they have for pulling those back up again simply wouldn't perform for them this was the second crash to involve the boeing seven three seven max within five months in indonesia last october a lion f. light went down shortly after takeoff from jakarta killing all one hundred eighty nine passengers and crew the lawyers representing the families of the victims of the line f. light say the united states should do more to hold boeing accountable you know what united states. is now.
11:57 pm
known for doing this is you know it's a you know more of those who work really equal justice for all the wires for the united states and it's a major setback for the company boeing really has to work very fast see to recover its trust because its brand name is so strong and its products for a long time have been so good the boeing seven three seven max has been grounded worldwide pending a review into the software off with flight control system investigators in here p.s.a. a full report into what happened could take up to a year to complete for healing mohammed al jazeera while the u.s. aviation regulator says it's launching a new review of the safety of the boeing seven three seven max the federal aviation administration the state says the review is expected to look at the certificate process of the aircraft boeing faces multiple lawsuits over the crash of the ethiopian airlines flight last month john and when his life was in chicago where
11:58 pm
boeing is based so john this all increases the pressure on the company. it does indeed there were three key findings from those transportation officials bad news for boeing the first one is that the pilots followed all of the procedures that boeing provided in order to try to correct their trajectory of that plane so that suggests according to preliminary findings that there was no pilot error they also found there was no damage sensor why was that important because if there was a damage sensor that could be a maintenance problem therefore the airlines could be blamed for that problem really centers the focus of the investigation on the software system and interestingly boeing. for much. of the revamp of that plane turned the seven thirty seven into the seven thirty seven max eight so they
11:59 pm
did a lot of the certification on behalf of the f.a.a. it's a common procedure interestingly they also sold a software fix as an option for about eighty thousand dollars now if that is risk is deemed to have been responsible for the accident the lack of that fix which neither of those two planes had that could be a serious problem for boeing and even lead to criminal culpability we don't know because these are merely findings but it is that software system that the attention is now focused on. in the lawsuits. that's right i'm standing outside of a lawyers office here in chicago right now with in the hour we're about to hear about the latest lawsuit in this case it is the family of a young woman who died in the most recent crash suing both boeing and the manufacturer of one of the parts that could be responsible for the crash and interestingly this woman is the niece of ralph nader
