until until the end of the ending i mean you had just one win to a brit cancer chrysalis records to describe his story and way he was one of the one light in your life he was a light cancer was somebody who helped me out of a bad situation and i saw hope for the future and then he was murdered still unsolved and that was there's a point where i mean i say it in the book or earmarks are weird sometimes and i look at that like the ultimate theft and he was stolen and that was a really it was a seminal moment in my life and also it's just it was really dark obviously you know and that was a dark that was a dark dark time and where things kind of went black for a while but like anything you survive it. not everyone does rose all stop either war from resident allen after the break.
we have the privilege of being the most allied ally of the united states. sent to see tool and many other alliances promoted by the west and the united states in particular members and we also have the privilege of being the most sanctioned. of that to any group of countries so while it sounds contradictory it is contradictory and pakistan this shows that pakistan will do what is in its
national interest it will know it's just cool with the real deal. welcome back i'm still here with actor director and activist rose mcgowan another theme throughout the book is the need for conformity not just in ideas but with the way one actually looks the surface just tell me a bit about that hair color hair length particularly. well something i found really
interesting and that had to do with you know by a female agent in hollywood talent agent directly telling me that i had to have long hair otherwise the men in hollywood wouldn't want to she said it nastier terms but sleep with me and if they didn't want to sleep with me they wouldn't hire me and the thing is i knew she was right nothing to do with the script writers nothing to do with the book. nothing by it is again that conformity and i think we've all seen that that hairdo with the three blowdry that with the three twirls on that and it's like kind of classic hollywood hair you know and i do wonder when the look will stop it is i kind of took matters into my own hands. if you up. and kind of i do i do i talk about it in the book i just i broke up with the world in a way the idea of the preconceived notion of what you're supposed to look like as
a woman and i was she would look good or to call me this film director really. funnily enough. and you still believe that this is continuing today actors in hollywood if they're female have to conform to that there is very little leeway specially for anyone starting out well that's the whole thing there's a lot of leeway there's so much leeway but they don't know that they're trained out of thinking there's any leeway this is how it's been done is how it's always been done this is how we should do it and i just think it's not even a good system we're not even great businessman they could be making so much more money it's not even if you can teach me to take what's special about people and massage it away until they're just an atomic bomb. until they no longer know who they are what they are then what are you selling you're selling what you think someone should be and that person behind the scenes might not be somebody you want in your head. so it's not even capitalism or it's the fact they themselves are in
the cold but internationally billions of people are influenced by it that's the thing and people say you know do you hate hollywood. i hate that it goes out to the world i hate that that doesn't stay local you know and there's there's obviously been seminal amazing films and cinema and all these things and it has done some good but i think overall i think on the balance so a lot of harm and obviously in the in the newspapers across the media we know about certain studio directors you just mentioned an agent but what is exactly the rule of a hollywood publicist people wait in new burt lancaster in the sweet smell of success what did they do and influence the billions of people in what they then may want to emulate aspire to and see in people what's usually somebody a publicist is meant to get you press or media or work usually with other higher
ups to sell you to make you palatable and a lot of these people have just seen movies where they see publicists in the movies acting a certain way so they come and they act out way because they think that's how they're supposed to be so it's just kind of like this on and on like people in hollywood have seen movies about people in hollywood so they continue to behave that way even though there's no reason to not just be a person there's no reason to not be. free but the threat is you'll be dropped if you don't take their orders it's not a threat they do it. they do it you don't want to get any reputation it's worse than you know high school girls sleeping with the boys it's like you don't want to reputation whatever you don't want a reputation so you do everything you can to not step out of line and and that eventually just again it strips what's special about you away i mean friends some journalists who try to interview some straws big surprise the publicists are in
there pretty quickly to stop such questions particularly when they're bold to say or issues of war and peace. either to israel gaza or to you because that way i want to get interviews are so boring. i tell you that control they don't want even stars don't have an opinion do not have an opinion no matter what you know do not have an opinion and i why not we're sorry but you get people on twitter that will say shut up and act or shut up i'm saying shut up and dance and i would say. no we are people too and i think the more that people in front of the camera really understand that they have a voice also. and people often get quite jealous of those i have a platform without realising they were very hard for that platform i worked very hard to hang on to be sitting here today i work very hard at that why. some actors
might have no thoughts on the matter some might have thoughts. they're very infantilized and you get used to being coddled and told what to do where to sit how to look what to be. i don't cotton to that kind of. direction if you will. clearly. how big does one have to be before it gets to freedom natalie portman recently said she was supporting gaza robert redford has always been a big name and always talked about the military industrial complex warren beatty do you have to be really concerned you have read that big to really have any kind of freedom or even they have strictures a place i think. well i mean i'm sure that the men get a lot more leeway susan sarandon i think. by hollywood standards was kind of branded you know kind of kooky that's what they like to do if you have
a personality or you have a specific point of view you're a kook or you're kind of unhinged. when it's ok to just be a person and have have a point of view it doesn't have to be anybody else's but it can be yours and i think if you're young and you're up and coming and you're making noise about gaza all of people above you will get very nervous because then you're going to get put in celebrity time so it was not always what you were in the corner at lincoln so absurd is what a magazine celebrity time i mean i mean you get you're like a little kid you get your face in the corner until you get better it's the proverbial time out it's quite asinine to tell you the truth so fans of for two people you mention in the book if we if we get away from the level of things maybe disappointed to know that robert rodriguez quinn the territory seen as independent filmmaker is not that much different really to the corporate filmic it's not. you
know they are they're men with power. and in fact. i would think the corporate ones might have more oversight but. their oversight committee was harvey weinstein. to which of course there was the powerful will say well justice was eventually so people often have to just wait quietly no they had a hand and. quantum even so they all know. you know he knew about me he said in an interview. you know they say the complicity machine is huge there. there's talk about an industrial complex it's one of complicity. and it's one of continually protecting people that aren't even that great in the first place so they're not. just clean out the crap so great things can come
just cut off the head of the rot and let other things flora show because we know it's all there we've all worked in those places where it would be so great if it weren't for that one person get rid of that one person. the attitude comes from the top down and the attitude of permissiveness imagine if your boss is a known rapist where you get to get away with. pretty much everything right it's only over malcolm x. in this targeting of the talk because obviously you talk about hollywood functioning as propaganda the billions of people going to the movies when you are promoting them on that level people arguably feel that they can't do as much but it is at the top that things have to change yes it is at the top. fundamentally biting ankles of power does not work so i wanted to show people that you could go for the head but of course some people saying that there there are quite
a few people still still there other definitely are for legal reasons we got misread and you are the people i mean how would you see how the law serves them as well in terms of media being able to cover stories like this well i mean if you look at harvey weinstein got to turn himself in on a friday afternoon to be arrested on a long weekend that means his story won't be running all week in the news and already be old news by the time the next week rolls around after the bank holiday you know that's all orchestrated that's all orchestrated in the media by not covering it and the week following necessarily falls into that we could of course save the police acted like a cd or promotional system of staggering events in his case he has people high up on his side which is a sad side to be on and it is symptomatic of this problem ganda the people you seem to preempt the criticism in the book towards the end saying people will think i
should i only would rather than all the widows me for what element of it is done to me. you know i think i get to say to you no i don't know hollywood anything. know why i don't see many people that do you know people like me the ones that are marketed as sex symbols they don't and i talk about this in the book they don't generally get out of their life or they're kind of driven crazy and live off in the desert somewhere and they don't come out the other side it's very hard to come out the other side near an interviewer asked me if i was person and non-grata in hollywood and i said no their persona non-grata was me i get a sense i guess a too. i count and in terms of trying to change things you talk about. emailing tweeting social media because she will boycotting it isn't the world timidly it is to do with mass action and i suppose that in the me too was
a big degree of mass action whether it be through writing or trade unions that we will declare in the united states is that the way forward because presumably even you think this is just one success you haven't been totally successful well i think it has changed a lot i have i've heard of that there reshooting a scene right now something i know about a project that i've heard of where it was too sexualized to rape so they're taking it out entirely people are they are starting to see things with different lenses whether they fully understand it or not. who knows but they understand that it's bad and that's a start you know i was sent a script a while ago and every single time the female character appeared she had a laundry basket for no apparent reason and she never did the laundry she just liked her laundry basket. is that kind of stuff i want people to start seeing these movies and and the television and picking apart what they're telling you pick apart like what message are you sending me with this female character with this male
character with the toxic masculinity this is not just about how women are represented it's man and of course of his men running something they're going to be defined as the men but in a way that i think puts a trap on a lot of men and also i feel like the little boys you see it so young with them when they get to know you're so brave you don't cry my heart breaks for them cry it hurt you'll be done in a minute it's cool you're ok but people are so quick to stick you in the box aren't they at that kills me people think they do i do everything for women i think i'm more of a humanist now i want us to get out of these rigid structure is because they're killing us i mean if you look at the state of the world i think arguably could say it's. having some troubles toxic masculinity can only bring you so far and then it will cave in on itself but i think it i hope it caves into freedom for everybody because i want everybody to be out of these rigid structures or in because they're
just not necessary you know i've been lucky enough in a lot of ways to live a fairly free life even while in different cults at least the life of the mind and i got mine back close i kept i kept all the money i got that but i didn't break and i see that so many men i see them like kind of not knowing or being taught how to process things or or just and there's so much you know violence towards women and it stems from it stems from this idea of ownership for one thing of women and the other part i think is not being able to process emotion i mean there are people that are so sure passon sick there is just that but what about the others you know to me and and that's where like. i know it sounds really weird but my heart almost breaks par for the month. and
that's it for the show will be back on monday keep in touch with us by social media till then we'll see you on monday forty six years to the day of the acquittal of charges of blood a kidnapping and conspiracy of the american communist angela davis now the activist professor angela davis of university of california. well you know the cars they were kind of adopted because we were called pirates for so long. i've been there in the small ball of sticks they don't harp on ships and it's still very. much up in. the little self to be told fish already ninety percent of the dot and it won't recover. concept fifteen scoops seventy five tons torn up and they do it several times
a day with a big fleet so now you get an idea my fortune which. we have to understand we cannot stay still and just. be with them this will be used feel more user. i'm doing this because i want the future world to the future can generations to have out and enjoy the ocean how we have. you never know what's around the corner never know was in the pub even to walk into an ease that excitement is that knowing that's where the adrenalin rush comes from . it is a political machine and the extremes who will support. the violence is
a part and it's almost a schizophrenia. where you can do all these things and behave badly. they're going to be full of hospital all. the more so for the last. one this man infirmed their role. in the start. of a broader where no i figured out i really did a poll down down went up a little bit. the meaning in reason is that beast if you don't and the evolves it's constantly evolving the. four men are sitting in a car when the fifth gets shot in the hand. all four have different versions of what happened one of them is on the death row
there's no way he could have done it there's no possible way because they did not shoot around a corner. this i was headlines the united states blocks a un resolution calling for the protection of palestinian civilians on the gaza border after months of deadly clashes with israeli soldiers plus. letter was given to me by. phone oh would you like to see what was in that letter well you might have dealt with it how much how much better how much after getting a letter from the leader of north korea donald trump says that a much anticipated summit between washington and pyongyang will take place after all. and a florida jury awards are only four cents compensation to the grieving family of a black man who was fatally shot. to his own home by police we talked to the family's lawyer. who have to tell three children that their pain and suffering
their loss of a father is only worth a pity. your weekend world news update from the international money welcome to the program first for you this hour the united states has vetoed a u.n. resolution that called for the protection of palestinian civilians on the gaza border america's own resolution to blame the islamist group hamas for the violence failed to get any support of the u.n. . the draft has been submitted on behalf of arab nations the terrorist group hamas beyers primary responsibility the revolution of mention even five times yet you couldn't bring. your third dimension hamas even one. going through loud
and spell it all those against. final outcome of today's vote is extremely disappointing but unfortunately not surprising that secession is another missed opportunity for this council we are offering a separate resolution the text as proposed does not reflect a balanced and impartial approach to the israeli palestinian conflict it is a must that has incited violent acts we regret that the american text does not adequately reference israel's responsibilities and obligations with regard to. the majority of those killed by israeli defense forces in recent weeks or members of the hamas terrorist group who's responsible for gaza being blockaded by air and sea if israel it is some asset has attacked the very humanitarian access points into gaza those in favor of please raise their hand.
now there are three months of deadly unrest on the israeli gaza border on friday a palestinian nurse and volunteer was killed by i.d.f. fire she was among the paramedics tending to the wounded protesters in gaza r.t. has been speaking to the head of the hospital emergency department where she was taken. that as a twenty one year old martyr died due to a gunshot to the chest the bullet was lethal causing severe bleeding in the chest around the order so when her corpse was delivered to the hospital we were surprised by the barbarity facing the medical crews being targeted just doing their duty to treat the wounded medical crews are doing a wonderful job and we thank them for that doing their duty for their people. and received a response from the israeli defense forces concerning civilians being targeted they
say that fairly examining any cases including the death of the nurse however the i.d.f. also stressed that hamas and its organization are deliberately putting civilians in danger. the latest anti occupation protest on friday also saw at least one hundred people injured. tensions are running high where the palestinian protesters who are very close to the front in the israeli forces acting. on the only thing around the middle of the pond. more tear gas being fired and cousin protesters as you see. tear gas is literally think the place also targeting the palestinian prime addicts and here's another injury that was just right now from the new defense for injuries are coming injuries after injuries and most of the injuries today are actually in that right
leg that's how we saw more than fifteen injuries in the right leg that israeli snipers continue to target the palestinians with live i mean it's you know and as you see at that time i think are ready to take every three that arrives thousands of palestinians continue to participate in the great march of return for more than ten weeks now the palestinians are holding one message to the world that they have the right to demand and they have to right to protest since the start of the mater for term protest two months ago at least one hundred sixteen palestinian protesters have been killed by i.d.f. soldiers of the border according to the international red cross thirteen thousand palestinians have been injured more than three thousand of them wounded by live ammunition now the organization is looking to boost its medical assistance program in the area and how that shaping up is going to cost five million dollars over the next six months that will include two surgical teams who are expected to conduct
around two thousand operations on top of that a fifty bed surgical unit as well as additional paramedics and supplies here's how the red cross describes the humanitarian situation in gaza right now. the hospital simply cannot grasp or deal with a bigger influx of violence. if we see the same amount of wounded arriving in your speed doors as what we saw on the fourteenth of may and would simply have hundreds of patients leading to death in the parking lot. i was. tens of have already lost some of their limbs and became amputees and follows an arms have been wounded including several thousands by live ammunition that's something that is overwhelming for any health system in the world the accelerated deterioration of the humanitarian situation has affected all speed
or. has afflicted all key infrastructure so the capacity of the system to cope with this if we were new influx is extremely limited and this is why the a c r c he says well. its capacity to whence where we leave the medical needs you're in gaza. was. you know when you are in a speech or eggs of palestinian red cross and the speedo and in fifteen minutes eighty were been wounded arrive when you're in chief and in eight hours five hundred cases arrive this is something that is absolutely unmanageable in most call in paris in new york but even more in gaz are which is already civilly weakened and butter of the plays a very difficult humanitarian situation that prevails in history.
humanitarian assistance is very nice and this is why we decided to act even more but on top of the absent of geopolitical really even decisions the situation we only worsen and worsen guys are now working on the edge of a cliff. or trump has reaffirmed his commitment to meet with the leader of north korea for a peace summit later this month it's after the american president revealed to journalists that he'd received a very nice letter from kim jong un the thing is it's not clear at this stage whether trump's actually read it or not. the letter was given to me by him you know and that letter was. very nice letter or would you like to see what was in that well you know you're like oh it is how much how much how much it was a very interesting letter and i haven't seen the letter you know i purposely did
not really. i haven't opened it i didn't open it in front of the director well whatever is in it the letter was passed to trump by a former north korean intelligence chief who was part of the delegation in the u.s. talks between america and north korea overshadowed for the twelfth of june in singapore that meeting that was earlier called off by trump due to what he called open hostility only boy has her own take on what's going on. it looks like kim may have copped off probably possibly maybe in case you missed it is that a feel good story of the so much. donald trump and came to my bold on tenterhooks there are you not some rachel the new justin and selena tanika just as attractive are you glad that these other two men with that fingers on the button as big date palms but using the twelve trump pulls it off saying that a friend told him said that he got it from someone else that came with saying mean
things about the u.s. vice president or something like that what was particularly annoying for kim was that just the day before when he turned how desperate he was to me stop the whole mountain that wouldn't be from what he said on twitter was actually true that there he done told some hope of few days later saying i truly believe north korea has brilliant potential and will be a great economic and financial nation one day you'll know how to. get. there why do these two just get together top teasing us from trying. to commit to getting rid of everything that you know smells wrong with the only other one came to learn will be mindful of the fact that libby has no gadhafi agreed to do just that but a few years later was dragged from the drain i'm sure so you can see the argument for keeping it cheap a little good to her and you know. that's a common donald.
