5:14 pm
that his latest agree with mexico doesn't actually contain anything new the white house announced a deal on friday trying to threaten to impose tariffs on oil imports from it's going to be less it did more to stop asylum asylum seekers from crossing into the united states the report cinema that they deal mostly involves agreements that were reached months ago from washington d.c. an official explains what is different in the agreement. well there are some new elements to this 1st of all the idea that the national guard in mexico would be deployed to the southern border to stop people coming up through the country are partly in agreement was reached in december between the u.s. and mexico what we have now is a number around 5000 national guard troops will do that job and also a time scale mexico say they are moving on and they are moving on it quickly mexico is also going to make it easier for people to stay in mexico while the asylum claims are held in the united states know that whole thing is being challenged in
5:15 pm
the courts here in the u.s. so that might not become such a key issue donald trump has also said in a tweet on sunday that there is one big thing that wasn't unknowns when the news release about this went out on friday and that will become clear at the appropriate time no idea what that could possibly be and also he is saying that mexico has agreed to buy a great deal of agricultural produce from the united states but that has left both people here in the u.s. and in mexico scratching their heads saying there is no such agreement mexico has entered into nor agreement about agricultural products what supporters of donald trump are saying is that the threat of tariffs undoubtedly made mexico come to the table because within hours of him saying that this was a possibility that the foreign minister of mexico was in washington discussing a deal this also gives donald trump a convenient political out if the situation on the border does not improve that he
5:16 pm
can say this is not a problem this is mexico and he may well raise the issue of type of sigyn because the talents for the moment are only suspended not completely canceled whereas the u.s. and mexico hailed the deal as a huge success refugees and migrants see it very differently home and reports from . mexico southern border of course well. over her the united states and mexico a bunch celebrating the new agreement mexico's avoided the threatened us terrorists the us has the promise mexico will tighten its borders. it's been sold as a trial by both sides but there's bound to be a human cost and these people maybe it central americans trying to get through mexico to the us and cool it up in the crackdown the president trying to push pull in the couple of hours we spent at a mix can checkpoint 5 groups who are detained. many like honduran dudman well
5:17 pm
say that the endemic violence and chronic poverty in their homelands means there's little choice but to flee if you want to look at the fact that it's the situation here organized crime there's no work the americans the whole lot we can't do that but he and his family will now most likely be headed back home and this is just the beginning because national guard are being deployed to the border to. mexico is road out that kind of blanket security before and it's led to migrants taking even more dangerous and isolated routes. what the model until follow is still recovering from his own taste of the people smugglers squeezed him and some 50 others into a truck standing up and drove it through mexico's mountainous backroads it plunged into a ravine killing 25 people on medicare when i woke up and heard that 6 of my friends from the community had died 3 of whom i had gone to school with i was very sad the
5:18 pm
solution many would say is to simply stay at home and the new agreement does include a plan for development in central american countries so that people don't have to leave but the presidents of honduras el salvador and guatemala themselves have been virtually silent during this crisis and without their support their countrymen could be forgiven for thinking. in this new deal they've been left on their own john home and i'll just say that up but you've got mexico. so this is out there these are the top stories i'm hong kong's leader is pressing ahead with a controversial law change and those who lead to huge weekend protests are urging people to get back out onto the streets the organizers estimate more than a 1000000 marched on sunday denouncing the legislation which would allow people to be extradited from hong kong to mainland china it was largely peaceful but several

5:22 pm
thing is never easy this is going to challenge tech john. and enable a different technology. one rep people not one of. the the. i like the concept of the unwashed masses that no one respects or thinks they have good ideas coming from but it's also the people who rise up and overthrow tyranny. i'm a hacker and troublemaker activist. i politically dennis as a non ideological in a. league of let's say carol's account so we go out and find some cows we go over. to tell me more that you should learn to make books. these children belong to you kurt wallander we go.
5:23 pm
i started programming. when i was 5. i learned to read so that i could read programming manuals. i love about. this is a house that i built with my family and we built it out of paper which is like this recycled paper. what we did was we just built the wall straight up and then we chain saw it out the hole where the windows are going to be. it's completely off the grid which means that both the communications up and down go straight to a satellite and actually trying to figure how to get microwave internet which is going to ball playing in tennis on top of the mountains to to bounce signals back and forth to try to get a life so to be fair bit faster. living out here you have to know much more about what's going on with your property you have to know all the systems there's no
5:24 pm
passing it off in some ways that's very aligned with hacker culture you have to get in there and see how it works. programmers are like digital superheroes everybody else gets to use the technology in their reality which we play but the programmers we get to reshape the rules the physics of our digital universe. the values of hacker culture the values social movements exist more in startups than we ever think. capitalism is an astounding belief that the most we can just
5:25 pm
a minute will do the most we can just of things for the greatest good john maynard keynes. was a great. as it were my favorite shirt. on the back more world less bank. beats the less for the distance. the end of the number 1900 is a sin was going to negotiate a new round where companies could go in and overturn the country's laws and fight countries if their countries passed laws that hurt their profits. and so there was a very large protest maybe 50000 people. dead b.t.o. was supposed to be a shining moment for seattle but as we know it didn't turn out that way. demonstrators terming trade organization mainland it was a centralized thing. they created the narrative and the message so in the media had
5:26 pm
this radical concept that activists that anyone concerned about the world and social change should no longer focus on convincing journalists to cover their stories but they should make the media themselves. we have to find our own ways to get the message out revolution will not be televised by the corporate media the couple days before the protest i walked in and joined as a volunteer. at the whole protest inside just smelling the tear gas floating under the doors. building software that let people go online and publish their old. women take this stuff to crank and. that more places grassroots politics in the us they came from japan from from their head their downward tiang and very exciting thing is emerging here in seattle and people's opposition to the world trade organization we set it
5:27 pm
up so that people are doing live streaming video in the streets be have laptops with all sorts of complicated network equipment published photos published video in the late ninety's that was a very rare interview thing that trade agreement ended up not being passed. that moment proved to be a shift where i said ok i'm going to quit my job to try and build software for social change fold. and so i spent 4 years setting up computer labs and websites who are into globalization. so you missed the raspberry but are there still or for very good i can still run. my friends pat hurst he's been trying to figure out how to build technology for activism to. he had this text
5:28 pm
message alert system for protest it was something called text. books. ringback ringback in the summer of 2004 a researchers produced a text model a cell phone text message broadcasting system text mob allows activists who are distributed throughout a city term in who are going to rise to during chaotic street protests or public and convention in 2004 was in new york and bush was the president running for reelection on the campaign of continuing the occupation. so by this time we had any media sort of tweet like messages single said you know 150140 character long messages they were breaking news updates and we provide these every few minutes testers were able to bypass preemptive police tactics by sharing information on undercover officers and police techs mum was a bit of an improvised system but the basic idea was that users would have their
5:29 pm
cell phones. and they would send messages to a server. going online saying i want to sign up for text mob and these are the information i want i want to be a member of this group and we had this p.h.p. web server. and appears to have service a great what's your phone number and what's your email provider in there then it would send email providers emails to the company sprint 18 t.-t. mobile. and that would then send an e-mail message that became an s.m.s. and those would go back and forth. the problem was 18 t. very soon discovered this and said you can't do that give us lots of money being a bunch of activists who didn't have a lot of money. we decided that we were going to do that instead what we built was
5:30 pm
a sneaky system around that we built a what is called a peer to peer network. and we built a little java applet. and we put that applet in the in the media web page. and whenever we wanted to send an s.m.s. we send it out to all of these little applets running on many thousands of people's computers that uplift would then do the communication to the 18 t.'s of the world from a new ip address and it says oh you need person you're not doing this anymore in 1000 pieces happily i'll deliver a couple s.m.s. is for you but not a lot and it started working and so we built this system that let us send 425-0000 s.m.s. is an hour through text mob without well having to pay for any. text in the media on the other optimism or is a major precursor to what has become
5:31 pm
a media. i was a broke activist traveling around living in a v.w. bus that i bought for $200.00 and i saw this contract on craigslist listing the company trying to create a new media of communication and i was like i'm all for democratizing the media all do this this is the picture it's not a very good picture. but that's. that's the demo. of the original twitter and we videoed it in the video got lost. and this is the original team that got split up to work on twitter so when we divided up the teams internally who's florian jack and noah.
5:32 pm
it looks like the picture is taken in a club or something. the whole team said let's look at text messaging let's look at social networks let's look at building stuff. when we took text and looked at it we said well ok this is interesting but it doesn't have the social model busy that blogging has. and so the transition from twitter to text is that that reading relationship in the p.r.i. and the openness of the web. over the summer and it went on i actually personally after we launched twitter which. i didn't realize what i myself was doing by part of the team that i helped create and hire and partially that the way the technology worked
5:33 pm
and a part of its roots in text bob and other projects i didn't realize the values that went into it if you don't have to be conscious of the values that you're putting in things when you do it. this is one of those sort of the biggest commercially focused on open source conferences not since there's i.b.m. and there's a paper out in microsoft. they don't necessarily agree conducted by politics but there's none of this like you should be shunned because you want to overthrow capitalism. or you know the middle. near. the.
