saddam's capitol angered by the findings of an investigation into a raid on a protest camp last month the military is blaming a handful of what it calls rogue officers for the violence which the opposition says killed at least 100 people have a morgan has more often neighboring ethiopia. a few offices diverting from their orders and no blame on sudan's military that was the core of the report from the investigation committee set up by the military to look into what happened on june 3rd when security forces attacked a pro-democracy sit in at army headquarters in her home. one of the brigadier's was warned that he's not responsible for the operation yet he disobeyed orders and led the rapid support forces into the sitting area and handed down orders for them to get out of their armored vehicles and force the protesters out it's also stablished that the riot forces led by one of the colonels he alone with his forces moved into the sitting area and some personnel started battling protesters firing
indiscriminately into. the attack killed at least 100 protesters and injured over 400 others according to the central committee for sudan's doctors which supports the protest movement the raid was lifestream by protesters as they ran for their lives and widely circulated on social media when the internet which was cut off on the day of the attack was restored more than a month later the investigating committee disputed the number of fatalities saying $87.00 were killed and 168 were wounded. the attack halted talks between the military and the opposition coalition known as the forces for freedom and change which represents the protest movement talks resume to months later as protesters continue to demand accountability and an initial power sharing agreement was signed earlier this month the sudanese professional association part of the opposition coalition and the body which has been leading the calls for protests since december
insists the committee was not independent. says it should not affect the talks to form a transitional government hours after the report was released people protested against its findings. i don't believe what happened today undermines the political process unless the military council looks for excuses to prisoner goes asians or procrastinate the process what happened today is a natural response let the military council see this is a strong message that the people cannot remain silent as the investigation commission was formed not to establish the truth but to conceal the truth. as the 2 sides continue to try to form a transitional government protesters on the streets continue their demand for justice but some analysts believe the investigation report could end up obstructing that justice from the justice perspective there is they need to be independent report. and i think the problem and also the information about this
is not. true the witnesses. the victims who have been attacked. this how this went on for what. we do 3rd attack was the most violent the start of the protest in december many see that the justice and accountability they demand cannot be achieved without a civilian government and a change in the system the reason why they started the revolution in the 1st place people morgan on just their own. delegation from myanmar has failed to convince 100 refugees and to return home 2 days of repatriation talks hundreds of thousands of people have been sheltering in camps that. 2017 well they're fed a crackdown by military refugee said they want to return home tomorrow without citizenship papers and a security guarantee well let's get more on this we're joined by tom can president

london. now and the israeli human rights organization is pushing for young palestinians to be allowed to make phone calls than detention $210.00 palestinians under the age of 18 are being held in israeli jails as detainees or prisoners 2 of them are under 14 that's according to the rights group bits of them this is most children report physical and verbal abuse from the moment of the rest as well as coercion and read steering interrogation many are told where they go in or out of contact with their families or lawyer now a group called home or care does petitioning the courts for that to change now that abraham has more from a college kid leah and the occupied west bank. thought of as he missed his little sister the most israeli authorities held the 15 year old under arrest for 3 months last year charging him with throwing stones at israeli soldiers he says he was
questioned without any good counsel or member of his family being present and he only saw his mother once from a distance while he was detained. my friend was a restart with me the israeli interrogator told him that i confessed against him that he threw stones they wanted him to confess against me as well he came back to the prison room angry and shouting thinking that i did that to him he almost hit me via palestinian prisoners associations say that teenagers like thought and even younger children are often arrested late at night or during confrontations with the israeli army in the occupied west bank they are tried in military courts and around half face charges of hurling stones that carry a prison sentence of around 6 months now the israeli human rights organization how good is petitioning the courts to allow minors to have access to phones the phone contact with the pick families is doubly important i mean of course it's a basic right but also when you look at everything these kids are going through
it's very important for them to have some sort of support from their families. you know i meant to try to fill that void he spent 2 years in jail until his release a few weeks ago and looked after young this unease while he was there he says some inmates whereas youngest 12 and found him the only consolation. some of them start crying they tell me i want my parents i want my mom but i know there's little i can do so i'm force a lot of them i say you'll be able to talk to mom soon and should visit in 10 days just so they can calm down and start adapting it usually takes more than 2 months for parents to get a visitor's permit but sometimes they never do they're allowed to attend their children's military trial but they're asked not to touch or talk to each other in the gaza strip many palestinians say the situation is usually worse now. just as his 16 year old son yousif was arrested 3 months ago he's accused of trying to smuggle himself into israel ruppert says he doesn't know much about what's happened to his son since his arrest and is worried he won't be able to visit him. more
often it was a wrist in the past so i might be banned from visiting him as they would deem me a security threat these really are misses the juvenile military court is designed to improve the rights of minors but according to those representing them many young inmates suffer physical and psychological harm in jail and having no contact with their families makes that worse. the occupied west bank. pushing ahead where the new taxes are big technology firms despite the u.s. president threatening to put retaliatory levies on french wines finance minister burnell amir says trance response was a mistake but u.s. president only a criticize what he called president a man you might call. for implementing the tech tax which will affect u.s. firms like google and facebook. now every polluting industry is a given to much of the blame for climate change but scientists say livestock and
their methane emissions are another huge factor so researchers in the u.k. are trying to find grain a ways to feed the planet jessica baldwin has more from devon and western england. despite their cheerful disposition and inquisitive nature these animals get a lot of bad press that's because they release huge amounts of me think. it's a greenhouse gas that damages the environment. cows and sheep are responsible for 14 percent of global greenhouse gases that's the same as all the cars trucks and planes in the world also some of the land they graze could be used to grow cereals and grains for human consumption. scientists at this research institute in western england are looking for ways to reduce the animal's carbon footprint they vary the animal's diet trying different grasses or even see wheat they selectively breed
choosing the ones that emit less gas into the air the air is continually monitored to see what works and what doesn't. the high tech farm includes a brand new shed 1st specific experiments to carefully measure employed and output all designed to see of cows and sheep can exist in an environment at risk grasslands can incorporate clovers and lagoons that concoction not to animals naturally would serve the norse to fertilize those plants so just to say because i was produce meat is a not sustainable it's too simplistic the institute amasses $9000000.00 datapoints every year it's a unique facility that attracts researchers from around the world even if researchers are able to find the most efficient way of raising livestock with a growing world population some scientists believe the only solution is to greatly
reduce the amount of money we eat we have a very serious climate emergency on our hands while production side measures will play a part actually we need to address what it is that drives our production and that is our consumption patterns livestock farming that doesn't harm the environment can't exist with a daily diet of steaks and how burgers a healthy planet may mean a return to traditional farms hills and bogs that can't grow cereals are ideal for cows and sheep just go baldwin al-jazeera devon england. hello again elizabeth problem and with the headlines on al-jazeera syrian government air strikes have killed at least 17 civilians a northwest province and many of the victims are children and they hear what is warning that war crimes are being converters. police in hong kong have fired
several rounds of tear gas to disperse protesters gathering near the offices of beijing's representatives. in the city they've also arrested dozens of people over the past hour as they try to clear the streets sarah clarke has the latest from hong kong. but is great resistance from the protests front they've come from. this really started as you mentioned hong kong and china split into 4 locations now those other locations adjoining this point and that's simply because these protesters want to show their support to the other ones who have been. by the police in this area which is essentially hong kong behind me the very tall building is the international finance center so if anyone knows. we are right in the thick of it. there's a number on every single street i mean on my left and right hand side trying to clear these protesters out before the end of the notch. the rounds as it considers
the u.k. seizure of its oil tanker off gibraltar a breach of the 2015 nuclear agreement around the deputy foreign minister made the comments in vienna at an emergency meeting aimed at saving that do you earlier this month british authorities detained the iranian tanker accusing it of breaching e.u. sanctions on syria the senior iranian negotiators said the meeting was constructive but that iran would continue to reduce its commitments to russian activists say more than a 1000 people were detained in central moscow during a crackdown on a demonstration they were protesting against the exclusion of opposition candidates from local elections meanwhile jailed russian opposition. has been taken to hospital to be treated for a severe allergic reaction and serving a 30 day present sentence after calling for an authorised protests in moscow. those are the headlines on al-jazeera do stay with us listening post is coming up next thank you for watching. the faceoffs continue.
as the last 20 democratic presidential candidates take to the stage for the 2nd us democratic debate. join us for coverage from detroit on july the 30th and 31st on al jazeera. america is divided like never before inside is so convinced that they're absolutely correct that the other side is dangerous people in power investigates how partisan politics all raiding the civil norms vital to american democracy every indicator shows america to be the least well functioning democracy of any established. one of the strange death of american civility announces their. justice minister said one of my heart. sank said.
one. of his church. for a couple. action project watch hello i'm richard just put in you're at the listening post here are some of the media stories we're covering this week brazil a new scandal relating to the carwash corruption case a judge turned politician now faces a journalistic brand of justice an exposé by reporters in puerto rico brings down the governor there taking of a civil action while on line the enduring and rising popularity of v.p. and come of the hour cometh the man boris johnson takes office in the u.k. setting at least one media heart aflutter it's not often that an investigation into a corruption scandal becomes a scandal in and of itself but that is exactly what is unfolding in brazil last month an online news outlet the intercept brazil began publishing
a series of. about the wheeling and dealing of the minister of justice moore in a previous life morell was a judge in charge of operation carwash an investigation into the biggest case of political corruption in the country's history it resulted in the arrests of hundreds of politicians and business figures hasten the fall of one president and landed another former president behind bars morals work on that case and his depiction in the brazilian news media as an anti corruption crusader helped get him the job of minister of justice appointed by president are both now the news outlets that help create moral were having some serious 2nd thoughts on the journalists at the intercept who broke this latest moral story are starting to feel the heat from the brazilian authorities our starting point this week is rio de janeiro.
the cast of characters in this case of corruption is along the terminology confusing but the story is simple back in 2014 the judge appointed to preside over the operation car wash investigation the case brazilians call love a shuttle with sergio more the probe uncovered money laundering bribery and corruption at the state owned energy company petro but ice several members of the ruling party under leftist president dilma rousseff were jailed for their part in the scheme. back to morrow was cheered on lionize by brazil's mostly right wing media any. t.v. channels like global and. magazines like fish or he was seen as a future president now he is fighting for his political life because of an investigation into his investigation known as vast as shocked and a series of text messages between him and prosecutors that strongly suggest that
legally speaking the fix was in. the most important revelation is that certain moral wasn't cahoots with the prosecution it's entirely for a bit to have a judge who is in constant conversation with the prosecution in order to arrange outcomes the media the media didn't create more of the superhero it just gave invisibility put a flashlight and a judge she was indeed doing a rather heroic job by brazilian standards however surgery did have a party ideology and he was manipulating the investigations rather than taking a step back and being impartial which is what we expect of a judge or jury but as you said. brazil found itself in a historic moment where it could clean itself up and the media really bought into the image that moral himself was constructed they absorbed it they deliberately
boarded this ship because strategically it was good to join the right side the side of the people fighting corruption. sergio morrow's reputation as an anti corruption crusaders scrubbing brazil queen of graft was demolished by the intercept its secret brazil archive includes leaked. sent over the telegram messaging app between moral and prosecutors investigating the carwash case the messages are explosive and potentially game changing they clearly show a judge legally required to be neutral working with prosecutors in some cases advising them on how to present various legal cases to him they also appear to confirm the suspicion that throughout the carwash investigation morrow and the prosecution were trying to manipulate press coverage to turn it against members of the p.t. party moros work in golf the government of president dilma rousseff hastened her
downfall and led to the jailing of. the silver party colleague poster is considered the favorite to win the next presidential election. with behind bars legally prevented from running a path was cleared for right wing populist. he won last year's election. then made more of his minister of justice which in light of all that collusion in the carwash case was the least he could do what this whole of us out of campaign as a media campaign produced was a devaluation of institutional politics of party politics and resume to a degree in which the electorate became so skeptical the in the. stream right wing outsider also now so both. in his election should be seen as a product of the. institutional politics having contributed to the rise of an
anti politics anti establishment rhetorical that in the end did not just criminalize the left but started to criminalize the whole of the political system and started to also weaken the legislative and the congress powers basically saying that we need someone from outside of politics to take this so it very much pave the way for the rise of the right extreme right and for also nado specifically so it has had not just political implications have had political economic and social. brazil's media system hasn't fared much better the most powerful broadcaster in the country is global it has a history of supporting right wing governments even the military dictatorship from 1964 to 85. global went all in on the carwash story which was justified to an extent by the scale of the corruption but the partisan tone of much of global coverage rang alarm
that. global's coverage of the shuttle leaks has been more selective and less exuberant version is brazil's best selling news magazine a right wing publication that was pro morrow and has now swung the other way partnering with the intercept on the leaks vicious change of tact followed a change in their mission meaning brazil is mostly private and they all belong to traditional families powerful families. on top of that they are all conservative views of belonged to a tradition one of these traditional family so until recently very was some sort of fox news and brit vitriolic giornale is right and they went bankrupt and they sold to a businessman and this guy apparently wants to give the news magazine a different orientation dettori intonation so i think that's the main reason that
vegas is now collaborating with the intercept them egypt the reaction of the media was incredible lots of international outlets followed up on our reporting with articles of their own but others such as the global group made a point especially in the 1st few days to emphasize the perspective of the justice ministry and to set your moral himself and someone of us out there will minister the business just a social model. will sell a lot dearly for you. may blow up because she was a male sizing static it presented all the possible things that could be wrong in our revelations in brazil there exists a section of right wing media that invested a lot in the car war story and there was no way they will ever let go of that narrative. ringback to global end to version with questions on their approach to the shuttle links vision declined to comment on its editorial about face global
road back with a detailed defense of its. average especially the significant amount of air time it is devoted to the legality of the journalism ringback this past wednesday a judge ordered the arrest of 4 people on charges of hacking sergio morrow's phone the 4 are accused of being the sources of the material as global put it it would be considered bad journalism in any part of the worked including in qatar to ignore that the cell phones of the authorities were hacked even though back in march of 2016 when morrow released a tape of a private phone call between dilma rousseff and lula da silva global was less concerned about the journalistic ethics it ran with that story as did vasher and so many other brazilian news outlets ringback though i could you took you in a story of such magnitude as was a jato which involves the hacking of several authorities including the most famous
judge and brazil the current minister of justice the biggest news is not the content of the alleged conversations but rather the hacking of these conversations this is very serious well much more serious was when morally a conversation between. presidents this was not in the public interest moreover the chance of a lifetime to go down in history as someone who has combat corruption had all the power disposal all the media attention all the public support and no instead of that you chose a political project you told to align yourself to a particular group. sergio mauro can complain all he wants about the latest leaks and the news coverage he now receives but having done what he did leaking information and manipulating the media a stance oblique in the name of justice and been exposed by an act of journalism he is no longer in a position to judge. we're
discussing one other media story on our radar this week with one of our reproducers full of celebs flo the governor of port authority called because of the last say you know was announced that he's resigning next week as a result of a scandal exposed by local journalists who are these journalists and what did they reveal richard russell is down for is in large part a result of an exposé by puerto rico's center for investigative journalism the centro de petit a d a small investigate tivo or c.p.i. it's a not for profit news organization that relies on donations similar to the american outlet pro publica it's produced a number of big stories over the years but nothing quite like this one on july 13th c.p.i. published nearly 900 pages of leaked messages chats that much like the story in brazil took place on telegram between the governor and his in the circle now i would read out examples but many of them are pretty obscene sexist homophobic
exchanges about political opponents celebrities like ricky martin even some journalists including the c.b.s. reporter david begnaud and puerto rican journalist benjamin torres gotye and what was the reaction to these revelations on the puerto rican streets i mean it was huge which had hundreds of thousands of people hit the streets to protest calling for resignation for years now put a reconsider been dealing with alleged government corruption mounting debt prolonged recession and a number of natural disasters 2700 hurrican maria among them more than a dozen government officials have resigned in the wake of c.p.i.'s exposé well seo himself however took his time this past wednesday 12 days after the protests began he took to facebook live to announce his resignation of the us which would get there this i could tell him see in the school ritual i don't even know it but it's
you know you see him talking complete wanting it up as you see him represent don't know if you could but but i can actually talk i'm so the dude and without the work of a group of journalists at the c.p.i. i would almost certainly still be in the job ok thanks larry. here at the listening post we've sometimes wondered how many of our online viewers are watching us over a v.p.n. how many of you are the skies in your location changing it from beijing to boston from riyadh to reykjavik to cover your tracks virtual private networks have been around for more than 2 decades now and they were not originally developed to circumvent surveillance and censorship they were too for corporations and governments to connect their offices in different countries to make it easier for people to work together but as the monitoring and control of the web have grown a market has emerged and expanded for people to work around internet blocks and to hide their location online particularly popular and countries with authoritarian
tendencies such as iran china and turkey v.p.n. is are now getting downloaded in more and more countries like sri lanka across the arab gulf as well as the us as data theft online tracking and web blocking grow increasingly common listening posts i mean actually ravi now on the use and uses of . 3 months ago in sri lanka social media platforms including facebook whatsapp instagram and you tube was suddenly inaccessible. c.d.'s of data tax across the city of colombo had security forces on high alert. the government said the online docs were necessary to prevent misinformation from spreading this was the 2nd time in just over a year that social media access was cut off across the country and it did not work
very well she lankans rely on social media as a primary mode of communication so about a 1000000 of them turned to their v.p.n. rebooting their way virtually back onto those platforms. we peons virtual private networks 1st. came into use in 1906 and they are among the most enduring innovations in online browsing with popularity on the rise around the world countries like vietnam indonesia and turkey rack up some of the highest numbers of software downloads turkey is notorious for its internet censorship over 240000 websites are currently blocked from turkey and in addition to that all were 150000 euros of well known newspapers and online news media outlets like. a live b.b.c. news new software site to more it would be appearing every once and others so if you're trying to access alternative news you can not see them from turkey unless
you hear it has become part of the daily internet use the very recently for example during the protest in sudan do you authorities issued an internet shutdown and a lot of people were using v.p.n. to circumvent the censorship in reading and neighborhood thousands and thousands of people to have access to social media to share pictures videos to communicate between each other but also with the world about what was going on in the country and one side. to the journalists who are using v.p.n. to gain information as we country then you have ordinary users who just want to watch pornography or sports and people do that all the time i don't know it has a legitimate use for the peons obviously some legality but people do see plans for all different sorts of reasons n.p.r. news to be quite complicated and difficult to set up now it's a matter of they're downloading your app pushing
a button and even the best services are just a few dollars a month so we certainly don't think it's a luxury i don't think privacy and security is a luxury so we peons are no more luxury than saying having a lock on your front door. over the last. last few years the number of v.p.n. services has boomed. hotspot shield express tunnel their cyber ghost these are just a few of the most popular names on the market by each v.p.n. says it offers something different the underlying principle is the same for all of them it's about setting up i mean to me due to a distant one between you and the web site you want to access so the way the v.p. and works is it's essentially a computer elsewhere in the world so you 1st connect to before going to the end so if you are in trying to connect to. the country us and then go to facebook and then that way you can actually access these services they also encrypt traffic as well
so anyone on the same work we've got on your home or the work. public or even your internet service provider they will not be have to see the websites that you're going to protect as well an effective v.p.n. at 1st is a v.p.n. that works because not all v.p.n. work in every country some countries actually block access to v.p.n. and the 2nd biggest recipient at least secure it means that the telecommunications and the information that transmits between you and if you're in is encrypted it means that they don't use that information or share that information with 3rd parties one you want to make sure that they have strong encryption protocols since encryption is the key way that if you checked your security secondly you want to make sure that it. has the right policies and measures in place to ensure that no none of your internet safety is large and a v.p.n.
it's out there in server itself making sure that you know you're not exposing yourself to additional risks and. the job to b.p. and use hasn't gone unnoticed by governments in countries like iran all mine and russia for the. instance the peons are subject to heavy destructions there are even some laws in place banning them increasingly the peons are coming onto authorities radars and getting targeted in turkey use which is not criminalize so it is not illegal to use services however turkey amended its internet law in february 2014 and there is a provision which states that the authorities could request access working to prepare and services several of these. services are inaccessible from turkey and if you manage to access their websites or have an account with them then they don't
work in china for example a number of the peons don't work and there were actually at some point and that was saying that it would balance or v.p.n. and they did remove a lot of v.p.n. from the apple store and google play and so on however banning all v.p.n. would also affect the economy of a country it would affect how a number of business can actually operate in a country so it wouldn't be really what is for a government to ban all v.p.n. but it is indeed a concern that especially the most efficient peons are the most secure rights respecting v.p.n. might be the. chinese authorities aren't just blocking many fought in the p. and services the been actively pushing the use of state approved and locally created d.p.s. users have to register to use them and explain why they need them the service is guaranteed neither privacy not anonymity and in
a country where censorship is stringent and dissent a scorched unsecured d.p.'s that come with beijing's seal of approval leave many people exposed. but it isn't just state sponsored or state approved the peons that have holes in their security with free v.p.n. so. it's a case of download or is be there generally speaking users can't really trust free v.p.n. means they may create a log of all the websites and visited and then sell them to a 3rd party perhaps an advertiser or another source of agency so a painful thing p.r. which is really the only way to actually do it's chilling is in some ways a luxury good it can cost anywhere from $5.00 to $10.00 to $20.00 a month to have this sort of additional security precaution that the vast majority of people probably are prepared to and pay for that being so the barrier of entry for v.p.n. says dramatically decrease you no longer have to be a technologist use them you can download an app into reading. low powered android
