A Conversation on Nigeria's uprising

"A video of a man apparently being killed by police goes viral. Protests breakout grow, and spread even internationally. Calls for police reform get better and louder. The police react violently protesters are killed. Off It's too familiar story and this time it's happening across. Nigeria. The focus of the protesters fury, it's a group called the specialist Anti Robbery, squad, or SARS secretive outfit with a long-running reputation for brutality. Stop Stop. Stop killing. It seems clear that Nigeria's people have had enough. President Muhammadu Buhari has already made concessions, but the protest mood hints discontent that stretches far beyond police reform. These have been completely widespread protests taking place in most of the major cities, not least in Lagos, which is the main commercial hub Buju, which is the capital. Jonathan. Rosenthal. Is The economists Africa editor. It is the biggest rising in. Nigeria in a in a very long time. So it seems there was a lot of pent up frustration before this about the police the really has been an and frankly this goes back a very long way that the protests of Tatton's really deep well of anger against the police and in particular against the special entry robbery squad, which was set up in the one thousand, nine, hundred, ninety s many's tackle violent crime in logos. And this has been a particular target because of its brutality people have seen as sort of absolutely faceless and an accountable. Amnesty International looked into it and they found that just in the period between January two, thousand, seventeen may two, thousand and twenty. They found more than eighty cases of abuse torture extra-judicial killings and found that they've been absolutely no accountability no attempts by the Nigerian police force to police itself, and so how has the government responded to all these protests? What you've seen as really two faces of response on the one hand you've had. Quite a violent response by the police of police have fired into protests. We believe the two people have been killed by the police that there will serve reports of police using water cannon, tear gas being protesters, and the like, and the very same time this has been happening. You've had the government's trying to come down almost the side of protest saying that they would dismantle police unit that they would redeploy the offices elsewhere and prison Bahari has has spoken to. This is just one step in our immune. To excessive. Loser. In order not sure that the parameter duty of the police and I look for some agencies. remains. The section of lives and loudly hoods up people. Let's there will be investigations civil society and Human Rights will be involved in this to cry up to bring accountability bring greater oversized to policing in Nigeria, and that seems to be giving the protesters what it is we're looking for. It is a first step of what the protesters want. The they've been I is quite skeptical of the school. There is a very, very long history of. Police violence and police abuse many years people in Nigeria would call special police, units, kill and. Previous protests have been match with with previous promises to reform units and to bring in more accountability. So I think there's a lot of skepticism by protesters about whether the government will follow through. That south has. Has. been dissolved different words to need disbanded and dissolved this year we're not funding for the same lies. Okay. The second issue is that they are are concerned about. The much broader issue of pleasing injustice and rule of law than just this special anti-robbery squad. There are calls for Vesa Training for police officers, much better judicial oversight, and frankly also just better pay better training and more effective policing. In that regard, it seems to be a real echo of what we've seen in America and elsewhere in the world this year. It really has. So when process brockhouse initially in the United States on black lives massive movement, there was a lot of empathy and sympathy within Africa broadly, and one saw both ordinary people and leaders of States speaking out on this issue, the year twenty twenty remembered for the massive groundswell to push back. The frontiers of racism. Under the umbrella. Hashtag black lives matter movement. As a country that has known to well the and wish of institutionalized racism. So Africa supports the demands. Quickly in Africa in the sense that. A lot of civil society groups and just ordinary folk in Africa would see their leaders condemning what is happening in the US and yet. Overseeing police, sources that we're frankly as as violence and dangerous at her across many parts of Africa. There's really been this upwards of support Nachos for black lives matter but turning into into anger at their locally sing. Of course, the SMI- Jaren issues has also taken off. Nigeria has a very large, very, very active, very vocal diasporas. We've seen protests taking place else when that's been brought in some international stars cut each on up a John Vega have been speaking on this issue.

Know How that looks to white people because I know how they see us, so guess what if they're man dies or something really wrong with him, and you didn't provide help. Guess who fought.

One one and I would have stayed until they got there but I understand it's different like I'm a woman so I don't know if they would come of instinct would into think I did something who knows. I can't say it, but I think women might have a different type of instinct. Black Man, got a different type of instinct to instinct, says Oh, white man in the driveway man down nine one one. Ryan do this neighborhood on my bike i. just passed is such and such house. There was a man the driveway. 'cause you go back and check on them. Nope I'm black. He's white. Know what the problem is I.

You know saying it's good that your conscience. Toshiba Kovac. Oh Boy Oh don't do that. Don't believe in people like that and. See I, chose women we we reactively I think. Many police officers have killed the black person who called the police. Because something was wrong, you'd how many Pe-? People who have been? The victim became the victim. At the hands of the police. They don't know what's in that way I was doing his riding my bike and I'm thinking to myself. What if they thought I tried to rob him like the lady the other day she was riding her bike and they call it. The police on, and the guy said Yeah. She was looking at to see what garage doors are open now. This is I got five kids and a wife to take care I got a family, and I'm I'm not playing around I called the police and. I was thankful Oh. My was somebody. I honestly don't know what's GonNa Happen next nope. The right image fields would justify. It was a good thing, aquatic police, but me myself. They're woman I. Think what went on for more comfortable them. God things we have to worry about aren't the same things that you have to worry about. That is not true like Blah Blah. Black women have. Police officers attacked by police officers win. They've called. The police has been stories like that in the news. Recently, a black woman called the police because something happened at a location and the cops come over there and arrest. The women are assault, the woman that happens all the time I just think with our instincts first of all I think if it's a woman and a man us in a man's laying on the ground and a woman. The COPS I don't think instinctively like they'll think we overpowered a man. You know the way the same way that happens with the black man. I don't think it happens not saying it never happens, but I don't think it's the same. But if you flip it right and I thought about this too right. Let's say Charlemagne your daughter's outside on the floor and you see a white guy leaning over your daughter. You.

"That record, which makes Buju Banton story a complex want for many Jamaicans, including Stacey and Chen. She's an LGBT activist and poet who now lives here in the US. Stacey on told me, she was out shopping nearer. Home in New York when she heard the news about Banton going back to Jamaica. I was in. In brooklyn. And it was a Jamaican woman who was serving me. And and she said with such jubilation that he's coming home. And she also said with such vitriol that the reason that he was in prison in the first base was the hatred of the gay community and the kind of like international almost organized way in which they systematically went after him and took him down. Which is of course, not true. He served seven years in prison for drug trafficking cocaine. Absolutely. Absolutely. Yes. But there are still people on the ground in Jamaica who feel as if the only reason that he was behind those bars was because he he was being targeted by the gay community by the very powerful gay community as we are often described as by a reggae community before serving time for drug trafficking in the US Buju Banton disavowed violence, I read physical or musical toward the gay community served his seven years. Is now out how much has he changed from the man who sang boom by by twenty five years ago? I think that's a very complicated question. I think the lesbian Jamaican activists optimist the lover of where I'm from. It's a very complicated place to sit because the issue of being more than one identity at the same time, and maybe those two identities don't coexist comfortably is always a difficult place for anybody to sit, but I grew up with reggae music. And so there's a part of me that really really loves it really answers to it. When I hear it. Cut two years later, I came out as a lesbian on the university campus in Jamaica and was violently assaulted by a a large number of of boys. Their intention must have been to either punish me for being gay or to convert me to being straight and that violence lives with me, my whole life. And so. The two things inside of me are consistently at war, and they are always wrestling mat, and they are always trying to find a way to live together because there are so much a part of me, I hear all these complicated. Feelings coming from you about this. I mean, it's kind of fascinating. The woman in ICA again. I mean, how much do you think has fans are aiding and abetting his life and his celebrity? I mean, how much of the blame do they shoulder? But isn't that the nature of of prophet dumb and celebrity which which today in today's world, it's one and the same would you is in every way a human being just like me, just like you. But he's also extraordinarily talented an extraordinarily able to speak from a place of deep truth about poverty in Jamaica about people's lives. He's able to articulate an experience that has been missing from much of the music we call ours. You know, not since Bob Marley. Has there been an artist that speaks with such truth with such depth with such beauty about the lives of poor people and the struggle to be recognized as human for blackness and being from Africa to be the center of one's pleasure and one's power reminder? Stacey on what the reception to boom. Bye. Bye. Was when it first came out. It's interesting that you ask that. Because the first time I heard boom. Bye bye. I threw my hands up and sang along because I was a teenager in Jamaica. So I sang with gusto along with my peers to the song. And then I became aware of the fact that I wanted to partner with women, and it became complicated for me because it was actually saying kill gay people kill gay men shoot them in the head. Which is in. No way permissible when you are a person who is gay because you're actually advocating for the death of your own kind your own person. And after the experience in Jamaica where I was attacked by homophobes in Jamaica, some violent homophobes in Jamaica and came to the US I started to articulate a politics our own micro identity. Then I began to see how it was not just problematic, and I began to see how it was that. I had a right to respond and that I could join a fight to speak out against this kind of violence.

"Lot of Buju Banton music streaming online. But not this song. It's about killing gaping. Doc. So then no. Boom. Bye bye. With one of the first songs. Blue Banton recorded about twenty five years ago is now rejected violence against the LGBT community. But he can't shake off the reputation of that record, which makes Buju Banton story a complex want for many Jamaicans, including Stacey and Chen. She's an LGBT activist and poet who now lives here in the US. Stacey an told me she was out shopping nearer home in New York when she heard the news about Banton going back to Jamaica. I was in Brooklyn. And it was a Jamaican woman who was serving me, and I care and she said with such jubilation that he's coming home. And she also said with such vitriol that the reason that he was in prison in the first base was the hatred of the gay community and the kind of like international almost organized way in which they systematically went after him and took him down. Which is of course, not true. He served seven years in US prison for. Trafficking cocaine. Absolutely. Absolutely. Yes. But there are still people on the ground in Jamaica who feel as if the only reason that he was behind those bars was because he he he was being targeted by the gay community by very powerful gay community as where often described as by the reggae community before serving time for drug trafficking in the US Buju Banton had disavowed violence, I read physical or musical toward the gay community served. His seven years is now out how much has he changed from the man who sang boom by by twenty five years ago. I think that's a very complicated question. I think the lesbian Jamaican activists optimists the lover of where I'm from. It's a very complicated place to sit because the issue of being more than one identity at the same time, and maybe those two identities don't coexist comfortably is always a difficult place for any. Anybody to sit, but I grew up with reggae music. And so there's a part of me that really really loves it really answers to it. When I hear it. Cut two years later, I came out as a lesbian on the university campus in Jamaica and was violently assaulted by a large number of of boys. Their intention must have been to either punish me for being gay or to convert me to being straight and that violence lives with me, my whole life. And so the two things inside of me are consistently at war, and they are always wrestling mat, and they are always trying to find a way to live together because they are so much part of me. I hear all these complicated feelings coming from you about this. I mean, it's kind of fascinating. The woman again, I mean, how much do you think his fans are aiding and abetting? His life and his celebrity. I mean, how much of the blame do they shoulder? But isn't that the nature of a prophet dumb and celebrity which which today in today's world, it's one and the same would you is in every way a human being just like me, just like you. But he's also extraordinarily talented an extraordinarily able to speak from a place of deep truth about poverty in Jamaica about people's lives. He's able to articulate an experience that has been missing from much of the music we call ours. Not since Bob Marley. Has there been an artist that speaks with such truth with such depth with such beauty about the lives of poor people and the struggle to be recognized as human for blackness and being from Africa to be the center of one's pleasure and one's power reminder? Stacey on what the reception to boom. Bye. Bye. Was when it first came out. It's interesting that you ask that. Because the first time I heard boom. Bye. Bye. I threw my hands up and sang along because I was a teenager in Jamaica. So I sang with gusto along with my peers to the song. And then I became aware of the fact that I wanted to partner with women, and it became complicated from because it was actually saying kill gay people kill gay men shoot them in the head. Which is in. No way permissible when you are a person who escaped because you're actually advocating for the death of your own kind your own person. And after the experience in Jamaica where I was attacked by homophobes in Jamaica, some violent homophobes in Jamaica. And I came to the US I started to articulate a politics are micro identity. Then I began to see how it was not just problematic, and I began to see how it was that. I had a right to respond and that I could join a fight to speak out against this kind of violence. Do you think homophobes in Jamaica, still see boom? Bye bye. As kind of an anthem you can. Can just say boom. Bye bye. And people in Jamaica, kind of know what you mean, it's clear what it is that you're saying what you're referencing.

"Takes a look back and gives us a sneak peek ahead as we round out the year Natalie Maho owned has been researching climate change for twenty years, but to her this year twenty eighteen felt a little different to me. It feels like there's more attention on the issue. Mo all is an atmospheric sciences, professor at Cornell. I covered in my classes, and there were so many articles this year that we couldn't even post all the articles onto our discussion board. It was it was just too much Maho old thinks part of the focus on climate change came from the weather. We saw a lot of intense storms. And of course, we can't attribute anyone storm to climate change. But these intense hurricanes are what we fear will occur more frequently under climate. Change besides those storms and onslaught of new science released. This fall also landed climate change in the headlines. Here's university of Arizona. Professor, Diana, Liberman, the were hosts series of reports and papers that really raise the ball in terms of the potential impacts of climate change and urgency of doing something about it Liberman and Maho walled both helped write one of those big papers from the UN's intergovernmental panel on climate change. It found that limiting warming to one point five degrees celsius above pre industrial levels would significantly cut a bunch of climate risks risks like drought heavy rainfall during hurricanes extreme heat sea level rise. The report gave policymakers alot were target to aim at than the two degrees celsius written into the Paris agreement. But how hard it would be to hit that target surprised even Liberman I've been working on climate change for a very long time at least thirty years. And I think what surprised me. Was rim icing. How dramatic the cuts on that we need to make to keep warming onto one point five. I mean, cutting emissions by half by twenty thirty. That's an enormous challenge especially since carbon pollution is on the rise again. Now, if twenty eighteen Josiah's how big the challenge really is twenty nine thousand nine hundred twenty twenty will be key to overcoming it. Or not we do not change course by twenty twenty. We just missing the point where we can avoid runaway climate change with disastrous consequences for people and all the nets will systems that sustain us. That was the UN secretary General Antonio, Gutierrez, man, let me take a minute here to tell you why he's saying twenty twenty is going to be such a big deal. It's the deadline under the Paris agreement for countries to set new targets for how much cut carbon by twenty thirty and twenty thirty. If you were a member is the cutoff date for making those huge cuts to keep that one. One point five degree goal alive. Gutierrez is holding a special the UN summit next September to try to drum up big promises ahead of that deadline. I'm calling on all leases to come to next to Slamet summits prepared to report what more than ten to do when they convenient twenty twenty for the and climate conference if countries stick to the promises they've already made we're headed for about three degrees of warming. So the one point five degree goal is a huge reach. But shandra boo with the center for science and environment. And Delhi says it's worth a try V understand that meeting. One point five goal is to anybody difficult, but the still has to try because we do not try to meet one point five. I don't think we will even meet Bussan represents the global south at you, clemen talks and says the region will Cutie feel if temperatures keep rising, and that is going to be really really bad for the book on threes of undergo communities what already suffering because of climate change. So the next two years. Go to very very important key dates to watch for the secretary-general's meeting in New York in September. And then the UN climate summit in twenty twenty for the world. I'm Caroline bealer. I'm Marco werman. And you're with the world. Celebrate Tori return.

And we are they are sleep best friends. Find out what our panel. Thank of that veracity Pillay in Johannesburg and Jonathan Steele here in London studio with me, but before we get into that Jonathan you've come to us fresh from a conference on Syria in London this week. This is a very interesting conference at the London School of economics, mainly with Syrians taking part. Basically the exiles. So they're not program in any way. But they were quite depressed about what was happening because who knows wars winding down, and that means that there's less killing going on the government is determined to sort of beaver said one of the academic said to be fortification mode. They want to make sure that this new resurgence of violence and song. And it even goes the question, whether the government wants refugees to come back because as one of them, again, another one put it the government doesn't have the resources not only not to feed people coming back to police them because the sources fear that there could be a new uprising us there wasn't twenty eleven and even talking about people coming back does that mean that there is a sense that the conflict is winding down. I think there's a definite sense. I think everybody agrees including opposition people. Hold up mainly in. Live in northwest, Syria. The rest of the country's back onto government control, the whole of Damascus big cities, Hampson Hammond. And. Leper so fighting house really calm down and the government claims they control what they call can the terrible phrase useful, Syria. The area. They consider doesn't matter in the northwest doesn't matter, but the big cities in the spine of the country, which runs no south from leopard entre Moscos's back from and government is very very interesting to hear the you say there's consensus that the conflict is winding down and get one of our contributors recently was talking about standing on the balcony of her home in Damascus and seeing the bombs falling on another part of the city will I think that's a little bit out of date. Now that used to be the case when I lost about a year ago. You could hear the poems and see the plain song. After the fall of Houston Huta in the spring of this year, pretty much, Damascus suburbs and back government control back under military control. But as hinting from this conference is the whole question of political Israel and government is not going to make any concessions, those can be no compromise or to alter the in fact, the Geneva talks dead dead sing because the government is determined to consolidate its victory, forty five country grounded Sern regime and not make any concessions tool, and as our other guest on the line from Johannesburg knows very well one thing is is the struggle. And another thing is the peace afterwards and Borussia Pillay on the line from Johannesburg. You've been looking into something else. We talk about South Africa we used to as the rainbow nation, but you have been looking at an undecided of racism within. Would you say? Within the black community. Absolutely. The skull within the black community and within the Asian community. And in fact, many communities I myself am of south Indian descent, so I really had from both sides being sort of sixth seventh generation growing considering by South African as well as of Indian descent and seeing just how these tropes play out. And because it's so much of a black lives have been discussed in relation to to whiteness and colonialism. It's only now that we started to have this conversations within black communities, which I think is really important that we start talking about how have we internalized notions of self hatred, and so on and a one of the one of the obvious things is the skin lightening creams, which understand you're searching. Yes, I'm actually writing a book on the topic of color rhythm and cutter ISM. You know? It's it's got so many. Sort of impacts in our society. One of them is of course, you know, the most obvious one is the very damaging nature of skin lightening creams in South Africa. We were fortunate enough to had those band very early on in in in our in, you know, in the sixteenth s the damage became apparent and people still use them they're widely available in black markets. And and you know, it's not just about the health risk. There's so many studies that show that lighter skinned people are lacking black people get much more in all kinds of opportunities job opportunities. You only have to look at Hollywood to see this. The light skinned the lighter skinned black woman is is usually cost darling. And the darker skinned black woman is cast as the villain and just how it is becoming in growing and growing conversation with these kind of things are being unpacked, and it really reaches across the world. And when I visited India for the first time, I was considered extremely dark, and and it's very interesting to me because I grew up under. The influence of black consciousness of Steve Biko where you taught to love yourself, and that influenced my understanding of my own skin color, and in India, it really was seen as a huge, Mark. I could not find makeup in my skin color. And I'm I could not find any creams that did not have skin lightening in them. And as you say this is prevalent across the rest of Africa, the Congo, Nigeria and so on. Coming. You mentioned black consciousness. I was just wondering right now, the ANC is. Emphasizing blackness much more. In fact, I think Tabor Mbeki recently said the ANC is becoming a black party. He was saying that was a criticism and you've got the economic freedom fighters. Rules, pushing sort of black power entering into this debate on on this sort of saying to toback people you shouldn't fool for this nonsense about calories and trying to look whiter than white. So absolutely. This is a very much a debate that I think is raging amongst the diaspora and blackmail across the world, whereas in South Africa because of the fierce black pride and a big movements towards owning your blackness. It would be considered very unfashionable to to avert. We say these things so it's really subtle. It's really a subtle thing. You know, they'll be adobe slang terms. Coined Appalachia skinned woman, yellow bone, and there'll be a preference towards them in music videos, and in also liberty culture. They'll be gradual lightning of our liberties getting lighter and lighter because they're using something called glutathione. Injections, which is not tested at all in terms of health implications, and literally lightens your skin. So there is this professing publicly of being proudly black while I'm working really hard to conform to a standard of beauty in terms of intensive one skin color and other aspects of how presents themselves. Hey up of fat. So while the ANC are very pro black. You know, there's so many issues for them to tackle. They haven't quite got onto this one yet. Well, let's hear more about that issue later in the program rationally Pillay on the line from Johannesburg and Jonathan steel here in London. But right now, let's go to France where the capital is waking up amid fears of another weekend of violence and new nationwide protest of the zone. All the yellow vests is due to take place in the coming hours, the government as well as major unions have called for calm asking protesters to stay away from places where many of last week's more violent incidents took place in the capital, but also in the rest of the country to in Paris, major attractions such as the Eiffel tower will remain closed today. But all of this is despite concessions from president Emmanuel Macron earlier this week, including abandoning a planned increase on fuel tax. And yet that hasn't appeased everyone tensions remain, very high as Hugh Scofield reports from Paris. It's
