three made a mess every hour because of austerity policies that were going up all of the u.k. now to be one slightly less bad day that's the could it like them bit opaque thank you. forty six years ago today britain's tory government sent the army into catholic homes across the six counties of northern ireland operation dimitrius conducted by m i five and the royal ulster constabulary would lead to thousands being forced from their homes and to mass and the catholic imprisonment without trial let alone torture as judged by the european court of human rights and today even as britain's to resume holds on to power thanks to a billion pound payment to a party linked to protestant paramilitaries the legacy of u.k. repression lingers and all across the island a violent murals remain a testament to the martyrs who died at the hands of british secret police and soldiers those murals inspire the artful dodger
a london street artist to use his pieces to speak out against social injustice today deputy editor sebastian baca went to speak to him in south london we have covered the artist's face to hide his identity. oh in politics of course when strange bedfellows i mean another of those people who say we should like celebrities and stay out of politics or social issues but i think if you have a talent and you have intelligence to use it in a way which i would refer to be creative intelligence people would say that i'm taking sides i don't see it that way i just think that the other side i'm taking is one of truth.
for me as with a lot of people are supposed politics is a dirty word some of the social commentary. that kind of was a seed was planted in the legacy because. just ninety six i just on a world billboard i spray paint star which went up on billboards around the country and i had an x. small community isolation and a gallery and nothing of. someone came down from a local newspaper you know he wrote about me. and of the end of it he kind of made a comment which was unexpected for me but i actually had a lot treats where he talks about the political and ireland and also the history of his clients he says seventy's over him britain who's saying that you've got a new generation of young artist coming up who were obviously talented
a lot of them but all they're doing is writing the name why it's such a waste my ego kind of took a slight once again. but i actually want to what i thought well actually. why am i complaining he's right and i began to think. if we look at it from another angle a lot of people that push it my work at the time were young people as well as all the local community online and city housing safe stuff like that i think a sense of myself. how lucky generation of artists who are producing something for young people and a style this time by young people want to use it while the news to a lot of why our names say something which young people who are concerned about a word about care about and we can actually use it as a way of speaking for i.p.s. an osa communicate can do with up his will on a wider level not the sons are into street rising. and i began to think that
actually the not show where kind of light potentially politicians for the. not just what was going on in the media and. the conservatives continue bumbling washhouse so to speak and saw the concepts of popped into my head so i did a lot of various pieces using the thing that's going to be which i'm going to continue using not. think in a way of getting people to actually look at what's happening in the world and especially british politics. promises that he's making and then he had an about face the same old story and i think the british people should hang on to the same keeping sound like a talk with the podium not just the press press politicians impressment school leaders and to explaining why they do some things that may concern decisions common in this part of politics and over here because everything is interconnected i mean
i remember in a couple of pieces concerning the american election one of them was to sun accounts of america mainly because a lot people say it was like a painting but it wasn't it was just a painting which was based on the simon garfunkel mrs robinson shoot and referenced joe dimaggio on iraq. and america because it was almost like saying america is in darkness they need a hero they need light they need guidance so where have you gone you know this golden hero account in america you know the world needs you know say wasn't it on to trunk. piece it was basically one calling out saying that america needs heroes and the reality is they shouldn't keep looking to playschool leaders for that because trump is a bad candidate but then again so was clinton but i think if you look at how political history how she was in bed with cope. aeration and also why don't people
actually look at the stuff which was released by wiki leaks about clinton in the clinton campaign if you really want to look at the truth he sort of can it does i mean forget what russia was saying was reportedly saying or doing i mean but i think it's funny how the media got the public to focus on just a few things not all charm sent this time so i think the candidate as controversial as it may seem clinton was worse than trump. he thought a lot of he sort of lost to good stuff but what she did was worth a war he said by all means necessary it's time to stop the hypocrisy of what you call vandalism i can't do because you're kind of thankless in this stuff and i know that i'm trying life for another thought because i'm not asking permission i'm just going out there i'm painting stuff which our feelings are important people should think about because i'm up being paid to do it but the far off on my ok
there's a lot no compromise because when you have a sponsor you're beholden to the sponsors when you do things off your own back this issue in the cultures that you have. and that's it for one of your favorite shows of the season we'll be back with a whole new episode to going on the ground on wednesday the seventeenth of january till then keep in touch via social media have a happy old tried. in the heart of the swiss alps this is a place probably more secretive the pentagon more mysterious than the cia and better guarded than for knox swiss customs are here permanently all the site is controlled by them and they impose the opening times for. the possibilities from these all plus the procedures in place of the strictest in all europe masterpieces by artists like pecans and modigliani can't boards and sold inside this warehouse

street by people who are unhappy with the economic situation. the root of it is just a canard it's the problem of youth unemployment i personally haven't been able to find a job for a long time but if people have a job they don't have any problem with the government a lot of the demands of the following suspend the twenty eighteen four minutes law returned to the original prices of goods and high of one member from every poor family these are in short so it really is in picher prices this time is huge we have a lot of privilege and have to pay a lot of fines it's only acceptable that we pay for this government's mistakes. we are protesting here because of high bryce's and employment we would judge the growth in these who have been subjected to violence by security agents now the tunas been prime minister has said that there is no place for violence and the sentiments echo the words that we used by iran's leader what happened yesterday is
a violation of the law since a state of emergency has been declared in tunisia these protests are the result of operations that aim to review social unrest. we are a free nation and according to the constitution and human rights the people are absolutely free to criticize the government and even protest but their protests should be in such a way as to aim to improve the situation in the country we the government will definitely not tolerate some protesters who want to destroy public property will disrupt public discipline and create turmoil in society as western leaders for example the french president are crying and the e.u. highway present mahoney were quick to condemn the waning protests even have the american president donald trump calling for regime change iran is failing at every level despite the terrible deal made with them by the bammer administration the great iranian people have been repressed for many years they are hungry for food
and for freedom along with human rights looted time for change but when it comes to the current potest that are taking place in tunisia while here they have kept mum and now it might be that two years here was the first country back in two thousand and eleven at the start of the arab spring to ask a dictator in a move that was widely akun by the western world as being one of the democratic change but since then there have been no less governments in place all of whom have been unable to get a handle on the economic situation the question of course is whether or not we'll see these cause for vision chain.
