Bitcoin is in that context I've gotten a lot of great feedback from now. And so i think that's a pretty decent intro but then i would say The bullish case for bitcoin and or the bitcoin standard both excellent books Bush case doesn't have an audio book yet. but We've got a short version on the podcast actually but safin rights bitcoin standard And then i also mentioned layered money by nick bhatia. It's a slightly different perspective. Because it's the history of the The history of the monetary system compared to like kind of overlapping and onto the bitcoin system. But it's brilliant.

"There's no hope of these old assholes fixing it for us like so we're just gonna do it. We're just we're just going to do it ourselves and build ourselves and we're gonna build it on top of the internet. 'cause that's what we know and I think i think it's by far the best. Hope and you think about like like in the context of the monitor. I'm like oh god the price of would i've come up with a terrible idea of remodelling my house in last You know five months and could not be worst timing as far as price wise But like as people are more aware of just how like what people haven't even thought about like what does it mean for money to lose value. It's just never even been a thing in their minds but it's going to be front and center. They're going to have to deal with this. And the best thing you can do over a long timeframe is to just say than hard money and the only thing. That's actually i think has actually has any real future in that. Context is bitcoin but look at the bond yields the base money right now is essentially bonds sovereign debt. But there's not even like a good market for that you know the feds having to buy it themselves because nobody else will buy it. it's negative yielding essentially negative. You'll re- real. Oh it is. Yeah yeah inflation into account yes absolutely negative yields that the government is buying itself because they can't even sell them to any suckers anymore. Yeah it's it's it's it's a real fucking crazy scary shit but at the same time you know what happens when those people find out when the corporate balance sheets and the people who you know when you're moving thirty billion dollars you just can't do it without any with anything else like you can only like. That's why bonds or the base money. But you can somebody did. Did you can sue a transaction. A single transaction cost you a nickel to move thirty billion dollars on bitcoin one when the people in the corporate environment when they realized that they don't have to fight to turn their negative five percent yield into a negative one percent yield and they actually have a liquid monetary base that they can take anywhere in the world that works on saturday night on banking holiday ends they can do it in lebanon or the us the exact same time..

"A in a year this just this statistic blew my mind The guy who runs packs full array yussef. I think has a really great talk at bitcoin. Twenty twenty one this past year or he was on a panel but he he dropped a statistic. That just blew my mind. I knew it was high. But i just had no fucking clue there. Were over two billion dollars in remittances cross Into nigeria and that fell within the banking system as bitcoin skyrocketed that fell to fifty five million fifty five million from two billion and it is because of the peer to peer bitcoin market. So it's now it's the government losing not being able to get their narrow banks on freaking out right now over there being like what in the hell is happening like people are just plugging into this open source global system that you know where used to have a banking licence in one hundred million dollars in insurance funds and you had to know yet suck at least two politicians dicks to to become a bank and now some fourteen year old kid is writing fifty lines of code and just ruining us like the disruption of the internet all over again. It's just happening in money and banking. Yeah that is really beautiful to think about what those boardroom meetings must be like. Well i think that one of the things. That's really exciting about the prospect of spreading awareness of bitcoin in the united states. Right now and obviously these are really important. Examples that you're giving in places like nigeria sure need it But you know the the truth is that we are right now. listen forget. The potential of a currency collapsed which is very real. I mean very real in this country. And we're we're down playing. We're playing around with this currency in a way that i don't think you could find an example of a country playing around with their currency way. We are where it doesn't collapse So i i would still stick with the ron paul. You know Position that it is a matter of when not if But people are really people are really living through real price inflation right now and you know. Scott horton got. It was great. He was on kennedy last night and he made this point that you know they were having video available. Yeah yeah he. He posted it. If you look on twitter you can find it. He posted it. He made the point at one at one point where they're talking about how joe biden's approval ratings are going down and they're all blaming it on the afghanistan thing and he's like listen probably has very little to do with afghanistan he goes. This is about the price inflation which is a result of the monetary inflation which is coming off already bad economy because of the lockdowns and people are noticing that the prices of housing and food and gas. and all of these things are skyrocketing. And that's and the more that you're in that situation where people are made aware of how you know how weak their money is. That's when you're gonna get a more fertile environment for these type of you know like ideas to spread so there's something very exciting about that and you know. Look i mean obviously to be a selfish american here. You know my my number. One concern is like what what could save our country in the event of a currency collapsed and in the event of moore naked authoritarianism which were certainly move as many american realm baker and his possible. Yeah But i i actually think i i think. Bitcoin is a potential resurgence of the the american dream of the the mentality and the philosophy of just that wild west of our. We're just gonna. We're just going to replace everything like it's not working. We're we we..

"The guy you you gave in germany. I mean the only vulnerability i could see. There is like yeah look. They could try to torture you for your for your codes. They could never let you out of jail. You mean i'm just saying in. The wrenches is always is always a possibility. But that's because the security is at the edge. The security rests with the individual the system itself the network itself is shockingly resilient now there are plenty of places in which a government can attack it and they can cause really serious problems. They can slow things down. They can make it difficult to connect but literally everything about its design is to survive in the face of all of that is to still be accessible is to still remain in consensus at a global scale and everything around what. The developers do in the cyberpunk proponents thought about for decades decades before bitcoin existed. And since is how to make sure that that cannot be a problem. I mean there's the the number of things like i'll read the. I'm not a programmer. Like really like i can break out. Some terminal writes in commands and feel smart and do a script here and there. But that's basically it But i do try to like read through the actual developer groups and conversations and make sense of what the hell they're doing. But i i can't believe how much i have found out about how the internet architecture actually works through them. Updating just stuff client side to the nodes they own on the bitcoin network to get around something that could potentially be a problem like the fact that we sink all of our clocks from central servers. They're like regional like there was an update like because i had no idea that this was even a thing but it made perfect sense after finding it out we have a centralized idea of what time it is that we used central servers and because bitcoin actually relies on one of its one of its mechanisms of judging like how long it's been since block is to have nodes have their own version of what time of their own time code and then basically make sure that the gaps aren't too big but it would allow something referred to as a time warp attack which isn't like a huge problem but it would be really annoying if everybody was on the same time and then they decided to centrally attack. What that the reality of time and they could screw up with the block synchronization and stuff. Everything would still work and it would basically work itself out over an extended period of time but it would be real pain in the ass and so in the in one of the.

"More are arguing that this really is unlike all of this kind of like spreading ideas and all of this stuff that this is really something that that has the potential. I think i might be understating what they would say but but has the potential to truly undermine government currency. So do you. Do you think that's true is that it has the potential to do that. That it inevitably will at. Where do you fall on that. no will The so it when you start to unravel monetary history if you take like a really big step back anytime a harder money anytime. A more sound money existed in the presence of a soft money environment. it didn't matter how strong cultural ties were. It did not matter how strong the violence around implementing that soft money was eventually. It simply collapsed gresham's law and fears law like you know whatever played out and the the value of the software money always died and we could not be in a better environment for that because the soft money getting a soft as they possibly can as fast as they possibly can and here in that same environment. The reason gold doesn't work is because it falls victim to be centralization. Problem is because we live in a digital age we've literally we've lived in a virtual quote unquote a virtual monetary system since like the mid sixteen hundreds when kind of like the amsterdam burst like in the first stock markets and paper notes representing real value. Started calm the the main of really really great book on this is nick. Botha's layered money actually That's that's one. I'd highly recommend But it's it's about the history of our monetary system that went from when we went from physical to quote unquote virtual. And there's your you mean like notes or the virtual is in represented value representations and basically that whole that whole arc but essentially there was there was a very pro. It was a subtle but a very profound flaw is a bug in the system that in order to actually trans like to to move to this new state of a monetary system. We have to give up the decentralisation in the individual verification of the money it suddenly turned into a game of trust where we have some other institution the obviously gained an astronomical amount of power from being the central institution that was going to hold the real money and then tell us how much there was an who owned it and of course of course that gets abused like there is there is no greater power in the world and the power to print and control the money because it has the power to consume all of the resources without ever giving anything back. I'll everybody else has to work their ass off to make chump change. Somebody else can just print a trillion dollars into existence.

I i kind of Actually started in film school and So i have always been like really big into media but as always like really text.

I went really hard into tech and all of the the internet. I was finding libertarianism. And stuff at the exact same time. I was pretty heavy conservative like kind of in college years and stuff and then i kinda had these huge shifts where suddenly i could not believe how much i had like some of my statements on like you know your the iraq war and stuff. I just started finding these things. And i was just ungodly like embarrassed at like my stance on just killing innocent people in a country. You know five thousand miles away. That i didn't know anything i've just genuinely didn't know the first damn thing about and And so while. I'm kind of going down this rabbit hole in having my whole world kinda shook up really And my brother is a address. View he's Taking he was doing economics in college so and we were living together so he would come home and we were kind of debate about what he was learning. And because it didn't make a whole lot of sense like he would. He would learn some major economic principle but then like three days later like you know in macroeconomics but then like three days. Later in micro economics learn exactly the opposite and it'd be like you know just because you made it bigger doesn't mean it's the law doesn't j. lick gravity isn't like different when you drop a glass versus when you drop a plane like it's same principle and so he would debate with his professors and then come home and.

"Now requiring especially men beyond a certain level. They have to sponsor at least two talented junior women. they're they're required to and then there are valuated far. She goes in how successful she is the company that that really begins to change. The you know my thinking. This is not zero sum. The not just one of us winning. If i'm promoting more women ernst and young is gonna do better and you know the pie gets bigger for all of us so there's more opportunity so crushing zero some kind of thinking that i think men fall prey to when it comes to this equity issue. I think there's a couple pieces Couple pieces to this. That are really important in creating this culture as senior leaders in particular Being able to talk about these topics and issues in a way that is meaningful to the frontline managers who are really where the rubber meets the road out there and way too. Many senior leaders are really uncomfortable. Talking about diversity inclusion. They're they're uncomfortable talking about gender talk uncomfortable talking about race and i think they need to learn how to get comfortable being uncomfortable and many ways that you know this is really about. How do you create your personal narrative about why this is important to you and can you share that story with people that really connects it to them and then once they see that it's personally important to you. How do you connect it to the business. The main line part of what you do this is not some hr program. This is just deny thing. This is a part. This is functionally important to how we accomplish our our job and our mission out there and once you can do that people start to sit up and take notice and then the second part of this is really about transparency are you. how transparent are you about. These different programs initiatives goals targets. Whatever the case might be in your company. Are you showing how you're doing how you're progressing at this. Because this is what begins to build trust in the organization. People say i hear you saying this. Show me what we're doing. And how well are we doing at it. And that's just the internal parts of the organization. The extra apart is important too because investors are looking your diverse talent out there.

I guess you stink get running. She's exactly yeah i remember. Call it or one weekend. And she was kinda down. I said china. What's up and she said. Well you know we have this. Prt and you know it was me and all the guys in the executive leadership team and i won and i said well that sounds great and she said while i felt great initially but then all the guys come across the line and they're like oh wow i got beat by a woman and they're all coming up are on how you know. Mike kelly's You know or. I was a little dehydrated. Had their own excuses and then she felt bad and i said jannine. Can you hear yourself. A dude would never say that a guy would just be like in your face a crash. You're gonna have to work out a little bit more funny cake. But i but women get these different messages right if they outshine guys in there you know they're being obnoxious or abrasive or whatever it is and dave scott his own personal story so but brad that was kind of an example of male mentoring right there. It wasn't really big impactful. You like yo sis. Depth would never apologize for that crap. Don't feel bad right. Yes and i will say. It's reciprocal chris. Because she does the same thing with me right. If i'm missing something or misreading something in the workplace. My sister is my confidante. she's kinda my gender confidante. I can bounce things off. It's safe and she gives me the real scoop and that's been incredibly helpful that two way kind of mentoring. This also this part about that brown had lots of conversations in terms of you. Why guys are not Don't see a rule for themselves when it comes to visit organization right of advancing not just people who look like them but all their all their employees all the people that they work with out there and it was really perplexing to us as we started to to get to understand this and i think one of the challenges back what you said. Chris earlier is that he. I mean lots of people throughout this idea that this is the business case was right. You're gonna make more money to be made for your organization. And maybe for you personally as well but i think what the reason for that is that we forget and i think this is the really important part is that it makes our workplace a lot more fun a lot more enjoyable to be around right when we when we have these different kinds of relationships when we can be better colleagues to each other and you know the fact that we can make better decisions and we can be more innovative more creative and we combine work and family and we can talk about things that we're interested in..

"But somebody information is beyond dispute. Come from the police. Not because we sound but because the Metropolitan Police have now admitted they've had held an internal investigation is called operation. Bruins and the opening loin is that meet the Somebody information on the blacklist follows with Supply Special Branch and Salvi. Festively you go Paul. Solve the British tights You know the dependent equal policing needs of British type. A Spine on union activists some providing information to to big business and and if that was happening anywhere else in the world the mainstream media and the BBC becoming mad about ants open about deceit in spin spotlight on boy by the state and all the rest of it and one of the reasons that we carry on doing these kind of pie in one of the reasons. Why I think Lucy's film selling porn is when you first so people this story. It's almost as if things that happen in this country and it's just quite often British. British colonialism almost invented this kind of stuff and the whirlwind talk to trade unionists in other parts of the world. They completely surprised about it. Whereas in this country people are. That's that's that's I think one of the questions. If that is state at the beginning of the film is what's relationship between the states and capitalism is something that I think I suppose hopefully a public inquiry there is a is one with reveal exactly what those linked swear more. These conversations were between the state and big business and I think in the film as well where we see. Dave being arrested for public odor offensive blocking roads. And I think that's an foundry fascinating of where how does the Lou define public order like Define Odor and when we see a guest particularly now around the environment where we see a big business so resistant to making changes that are going to support order through and we'll have the environment. Bigger questions are being asked around. What's what's more what's more important temporary fixes or the bigger the bigger fixes his first documentary film. Was He easy for you to get funding? Was it quite tricky as a filmmaker? How did you find it yet? I'm so I went with them. City projects in Cape Pirka who produced the film and she was really fantastic working to fundraise. We got funding from the arts maliciously but then from that we got funding from a number smooth trusts and donations from trade unions and individuals wasn't easy to get the funding and move was a learning process as well as the first feature film. It made and when you don't have the film's behind you people and is willing to support always but I think part of the pricing funding fundraising was also so community building and building audiences so one of the things we promised with when people funded Gibson nations that we would allow them to screen the film. So that's helped intensive arranging community screenings. Are you pleased with how the film's tone delve? Yeah I think I suppose I didn't set out as I introduced myself to David. Were my background's in short filmmaking and I wasn't sitting out to make his to conventional commit tree and I think one of the politics behind that is to have multiple voices and not have the traditional narrates. I think because love. It's quite complex. As water on the legal case to try and bring in multiple voices and to raise questions at different points in the film felt inputs in. I personally love the film What I love about is that some is precisely because Lucy is in our aced and not a documentary filmmaker. And I think he's a very obvious because documentary. Filmmaker wouldn't have my that film in anyway shape or form me my favorite scenes ear when George Fuller Person. Lucy's talk about beginning. He's doing the washing up his kitchen. Or there's a bit where paper I've been all Q. And an until combat stuff. It's just it's that stuff that makes his look human rather than just looking like coke in a big machinery. If the only thing we can ever talk about is Is Blacklisting because we're all human beings families and it's that bit though. I think it's got the emotional poll that brings us in and that's why I really think it works question Kobe. Did you see what's next? I'm starting to have conversations with people around unto come police inquiry which is starting to evidence this yea and we'll be hearing evidence next year as well so I met this early stages of working out if I will make about it but I feel committed to the course. This is undercover policing where they actually went undercover in various activists and actually had relationships. It's really wide reaching and the two women that speak in solidarity were two of the women in relationships with undercover police. A poet into police inquiry. And the Dave with the button support group and a family justice campaigns environmental campaigns trade union. So it's it's huge in its skirt which is quite problematic in lots of ways. It was really interesting in. Hurt brings together lots of different experiences. It starts to fifteen. That's right isn't it yet? Centuries a main sets it going in two thousand and fifteen so already it's been a really long process and the thing that I'm most interested in is what public inquiry ass and tries to represent and the problems of public inquiries as well. I'm typically as a state run activity and viewed Dave. What's next well? I'm actually a coal participant in this undercover police. Public Inquiry Lucy's are just been token about some of the undercover place offices was spying on trade unions One of them Is ni-nice went on new. Amy's nightmares mark custody. He was a call using the Siamese unionist. May I went to pick it? Lawrence William went to meetings with a May even rain one of the sites canopy in his In the building industry and years later we found it was actually an undercover police officer and his real name was Gena lived with a woman on new for all of us. What sign told me was already married? So yet that's Talked about is there anything shocking. GonNa Stuffy Sir. Very very shocking. And it's going on in our million because this is the police in the state during this is taxpayer money being spent on that Garner staff. And that's what I found outrageous and as Lucy said these public inquiry has been going on. It was south five years ago. Hasn't heard any evidence yet and fell of years. Baker universities across the country and I recently spoke in class. Go to a group of three hundred students and asked them if any of them had heard of this stuff about undercover police and three hundred two people the hand up with some people. Listen to your podcast of heard it. I don't think the vast majority of the British public I've heard about coal which is well. We can't portion because counts back to this thing before people still think the things are happening in this country and it clearly does. It's it's really important to understand the bigger picture of it and how it operated systemically completely end as someone who was followed on deliver loose and he's very very good friends with Zoey women to ride long-term relationship police officers everyone intermediaries When I talked us is always interested in APP. Tell us your cannot human interest story which is important. I mean it is shocking what happened. It's only about human interest. You miss the big political chat. Which is the facts?

How do the film about 'em so I met George Fuller? He's in the film in Two thousand twelve. When I was in a writing group he was putting of and he was writing by experience of being blacklisted ads. And then I went with him to has the parliament to some meetings that were happening and then got to the Butler support group and gradually decided to make a film. Dave can I ask you? How did you first meet Lucy? And when she did approach you where you want. The whole idea of the film will met Lucy when she turned up with Joel. Gibb one of these parliamentary meetings. We ads and also the head coach. We will see an ad Rota justice about once a month for its own and actually from being skeptical. We were over the Mon. Someone was interested in what we're doing. And the case because most of the mainstream media it's completely so you've bypassed occasional bits on the on the Talian in the newspapers but you know it would just be era mayor and if emission was really looking for in probably missing so someone who's interested in doing a film we you know we say come on join US coming Joe and it was great and the film itself. Let me just briefly explain for our listeners. Solidarity. It's about a bunch of people who've been blacklisted mainly from the construction industry and Dave. Can you tell me very briefly? Become what your story is It wouldn't work out when Alexis go. I and I was also very Union member was a union safety net so I raised concerns mass by Stocks Building Salvatore flow in toilets. If I remember one time a young lad fell off a scaffold. Always say you know so. Add Safety Paul and the bike stories the even in the middle of the building boom I just now is the network when it was allowed to work around suddenly odd get Giovanni Beta a couple days or a few weeks I would lose my job. People sort of talks about blackness but it was only a little bit urban myth and name in two thousand and Knowing Government Department Information Commission did ride and found his blackness foil. We still being kept Tony. And because the government department you can apply to get a copy of your follow and my father always six pages. Long Scott Monnaie address. The national insurance number covers a fifteen year period more work. Quite stifling really eight yes I mean it's got the job complained about a special Caesar. Colby job rural complained about young fellow. Fallen off the scaffold and is recorded in the job complained about the oil. It's regarded it and it's basically the big multinational construction firms. Who MANAGES WOULD KEEP TABS? Zonja and then send information was kept on a centralized advice and every time you have to get a job one of the big buildings so it's anywhere in the country the big companies who checked to save your nine on this list and if it was you never got a job or if you're lucky enough to get on the job once they found out you were a sect you which is not very well documented now and even the Companies Doing Lucy when you start to Dell DEEPA. We'll use surprised by what you would discover it. He's thinking back now. No but at the time yes I think so. For example with Joe Jr case which which was the shock for me the fact that he'd been raising gathering signatures for a petition around homelessness and Housing tickly for women. That was shocked to me. The company would use that to keep track on him but Intensive how particularly in the construction industry how much they are working with voice to a med. That is not too much bishop. Now I feel like through learning about the blacklisting case I've I've developed movement understanding of how systems operate but I think also just tive socially how conditioned we are not to speak out and not to complain and I think it's really helped me to understand whether things come from in terms of being surprised about people being blacklisted. I think the extent to which it was an extent to which for example Ian Was employed to keep track of these lists the amount of companies in amount of h People who were invoked that feels to me like still like the surprise that that system can support something that is destroying people's lives. I mean I'm sure. Many listeners will be quite surprised to hear about this because of all all you're doing is by looking off to work. His all fighting for ordinary wrightson human minds. That really the the finger at noise of all of us is the if what we were doing was burning places down organizer so in people. They know you know. There's there's an understanding about why someone might keep tabs on your. What would we would. Just you know. Raising concerns about health and safety or in fact the very first Ngoma follow is about. I'm Pie. Why jeez actually it's from nineteen not to and he says. I was involved in its dispute over several weeks unpaid wages so because we have to remember it's I actually. We've done the work to be. You know that was enough to get nine on the follow and some of the things that paper on the foil for it's just it's just not and irrelevant and I remember one of the followers. He says that the person was saying where an anti Nazi league badge. And it's shown to be a member what he will remain to be. Anti Nazi thing. It's it's the facts the you know. Otherwise accepted be companies more. Not like you. If you're you know. Interrupt their ability to might profit bates. The it's instant death for the intrusion and it's the number of companies that are involved. We're talking about the biggest multinational firms fads all of these companies. Were doing this to me. Towns incredible depth all detail but they kept on individuals. I'm just amazed I mean even thinking about your family's just still amazed. I think lots of people are amazed. But we're so I think learning I guess about how the trade union movements been oppressed through from its initial founding. 's An the fact of the things race around trajan issues Isn't surprising so when you when you look at it in the history of oppression of the left. It's less of a surprise. If I'm honest. Very few of us were surprised. There is a blacklist. What was surprised? Rosie stayed the depth of it. But but since we've been running this campaign loads of stuff has come out for about. Monsanto spun on activists of McDonald spun on activists this stuff even in the newspapers this week about these banks by went on their own staff and so big corporation span on vice disagree with their managerial tactics and a more interrupt their ability to you know might money isn't really something new. I mean you know with that too bad. We capitalism these big corporations at Edsa Mike Money and and and if as a group of workers we're standing up fruit juice with their profit margins than in a get why they're doing a Dunkin. We shouldn't be surprised. I'm shocked at the intrusion outraged but I'm not really surprised that they were doing. I think one thing that I'm Steve. He's in the film. Steve Kennedy took about is feeling the feelings that his family didn't believe him. And the feeling that you'll so call a conspiracy theory and that's where I feel like it's really important that people know about people's experiences because it's evident Eric stand to read it and to see so and I think people have those fears speaking out but when you can see in black and white that this is a reality questions conspiracy. Just get moving on from that as well. Because it's not only just the corporations who've involved and you mentioned a number of other companies have been poked as well accused of spying on their star form or the workforce the police have also been. This is an arm of the state is also been involved in this timeline. If I want to stretch the bit that we're all shocked when you say is sometimes it's very obvious. Waiting INFORMATION COMES FROM. It's from a manager on a building so complained about the two when it's off complained about my anti white. She's outside information kits.

"The two when it's off complaining about my wages at Saudi of kicks but somebody information is beyond dispute. Come from the police. Not because we sound but because the Metropolitan Police have now made it. They've had held. An internal investigation is called operation brewed. Britain's and the Albanian loin in is that meet the Somebody information on the blacklist follows supply Special Branch. And so we go. Paul solve the British deitz equal policing units of the British style. A spying on union activists provided information to to big business and and if that was happening anywhere else in the world the mainstream media in the BBC will be going mad about talking about deceit spin spotlight on boy by the Steitz and all the rest of it and one of the reasons that we carry on doing this kind of tying span. One of the reasons why I think Lucille so in Poland is when you first so paypal. This story in so much as things that happen in this country and it's just quite often British British. Colonialism almost invented this kind of stuff. And when you talk to try unionists in other parts of the world they completely surprised about it whereas in this country people are. And that's that's that's one of the questions of that is stated at the beginning of the film is what's relationship between the states and capitalism is something that I think I suppose hopefully a public inquiry there is a is one with reveal exactly what those links were conversations were between the state and big business and I think in the film as well where we see. Dave being arrested food public odor offensive blocking roads. And I think that's an foundry fascinating way. How does the law define public order like Define Odor and when we see a guess particularly now around the environment where we see big business so resistant to making changes that are going to support order through an. We'll have the environment the biggest questions being asked around. What's what's more what's more important super temporary fixes or the bigger the bigger fix. This is your first documentary. It's alright was easy for you to get funding. Tricky as a filmmaker. How did you find it yet? I'm so I went with them. City projects in Cape Parker who produced the phone and she was really fantastic working to fundraise. We got funding from the Arts Council maliciously but then from that regard funding number smooth trusts and love donations from trade unions and individuals. So it wasn't easy to get the funding and so two was a learning prices. Well it's the first feature film at eight and I guess when you don't have other films behind you. People aren't as willing to support but I think part of the process of funding fundraising associate community building and building audiences. One of the things we promised with when people funded or nations that we would allow them to screen the film. So that's how intensive arranging community screenings. Are you pleased with Helms turned out? Yeah I think I suppose I didn't set out as I introduced myself to Davis and my grand smooth short filmmaking and I wasn't setting out to make conventional document tree and I think one of the politics behind that is to have multiple voices and not have this traditional innovates. I think because a lot of it's quite complex on the legal case to try and bring in multiple voices and to raise questions at different points in the film folks input season. I personally love the film What I love about way is that is precisely because Lucy's and all I am not a documentary filmmaker and things very obvious because documentary. Filmmaker wouldn't have might've failed me in any way shape or form me my favorite sayings when George Fuller Personal Lucy's talk about beginning. He's doing the washing up these These kitchen Or there's a bit where Paper Barbecue and and and until that stuff. It's just it's that stuff that makes his look human robbed just looking at Coke's in big machinery and if the only thing we can ever talk about is Is is blacklisting human beings families and it's that bit I think the emotional poll brings us in an unnatural. I really think it works funded question for both of you what you need see. What's next I'm starting to have conversations with people around the undercover police inquiry which is starting to evidence this year and we'll be hearing this next year as well so I met this early stages of working out if I will make a film about it but I feel committed to the course this undercover policing where they actually went on to come in various activists and actually had Richard Sherman yet so it's really wide reaching and the two women that speaking solidarity were to women are in relationships within the police to it into a police inquiry and the Dave with the Butler support group family justice campaigns environmental campaigns trade union. So it's it's huge in it skirt which is quite problematic. Not Waste but it was really interesting in hoping together. Lots of different experiences. It starting to doesn't fifteen. That's right. Isn't it yet? Centuries a million sets it going two thousand fifteen so already. It's been a really long process in the thing that I'm kind of most interested in a moment is a public inquiry ass and tries to represent and the problems of public inquiries as well and typically as a state run activity and viewed Dave. What's next well? I'm actually a call participant in this undercover police public inquiry loose. Who's just been token about some of the undercover? Police officers was own. Trade Unions One of them is nine. He went on new mall custody. He was a cop and so It was in the same union as me. I went to pick with him. I went to meetings with a May even rain. One of the safety canopy and is in ministry and years later we found who's actually an undercover police officer and his real name was Mop Jenner and he lived a woman on new for us. What Simon told me was already married. So yeah that's You know we talked about. Is there anything shocking KONTA stuff? He's very very shocking. And it's going on nine because this is the police and appreciate during. This is taxpayers money being spent on that GONNA staff. And that's what I find outrageous an an as Lucy said these public inquiry has been going on. It was five years ago and it hasn't heard any evidence yet and fellow of us and our speaker universities across the country And I've recently spoke in Glasgow to a group of free hundred students and asked them if any of them had heard of this stuff about undercover police and at three hundred two people the hand up so so some people listen to your protocol. Smart. I've heard it. I don't think the vast majority of the British public I've heard about which is well. We can't push them because comes back to this thing before people still think that things are happening this country and it clearly does. It's important to understand the big picture of it and how it operated systemically completely end as someone who was followed on delays and. He's very very good friends with a lot of the women ride long-term relationship licenses for the police officers. Everyone in the media is when I talked to. Us is always interested in a tell us your human interest story which is important. I mean it is shocking. What happened but if it's only about human interest you miss the big political page. Which is the facts of the study is systematically doing this not is not Rome. This still doing it to this guy and they basically spa in on anyone. They consider to be in inverted commas domestic extremists and optimize extremely. She doesn't have to commit any chrome. This is this lynch reform police. If you're if you're doing stuff which the duct the senior however all of you know the the political police. Units thinks is a frick Interests will you know interest to do so Robin Mcalpine?

"Left cheat. I'm joined by Lucy Park Director of the documentary film solidarity have Dave Smith who features NFL. Lucy first of all. If I can ask you. Did the film comfortable. How do the film come about so? I met George Fuller. He's in the film in Two thousand twelve. When I was in writing group he was putting of and he was writing about his experiences being blasted and then I went with him to parliament to some of the meetings that were happening and then got to meet the Butler support group and gradually decided to make a film. Dave can I ask you? How did you first meet Lucy? And when she did approach you where you get to. The whole idea of the film will met Lucy when she turned up with Joe. One of these parliamentary meetings we ads and those over the cold. We will an ad roll coach of justice about once a month. That's how I am actually far from being skeptical we were over the moon and someone was interested in what we would do in case because most of the mainstream maniac completely bypassed occasional. Bits on the On the tally in in the news by was it would just be a era mayor and if a nation was really looking for in probably missing so someone who's interested in doing field wave we come on. Join US COME JOE. And it was great and the film itself. Let me just briefly explain for our listeners. Solidarity it's about a bunch of people who've been blacklisted mainly from the construction industry and Dave very briefly. Become what your story is building work out when Alexis go very Union member. I was a union safety so I raised concerns aspects stocks and stumbling on building Soviets. Overflowing toilets remember one time a young fellow scaffolding and always there you know so add safety. Paul Event and the stories even in the middle of the building boom. I just know the work when there was loads and loads of work around. Suddenly you get a job and not only be Derek dies or a few weeks lose my job so let's talk about blackness team but if it was a little bit of urban myth in two thousand and knowing government Department Information Commissions. Elvis did of right and found all of these blackness foil. We still being kept on. And because it's a government department you can apply to get a copy of your fellow and my. I always six pages long. Scott My name address STA National Insurance Number covers a fifteen year. Pay Working Low. F- quite staggering. Really eight yeah. I mean it's the job will complain about a special recorded in it. The job rural complained about young fellow. Fallen off the scaffolding is recorded in the about the is regarded it and it's basically ought to be multi national construction firms. Who Manages would keep tabs on your and then send information up. There is a catch on a centralized database and every time you get job and one of the big buildings so it's anywhere in the country the big companies will check to save. Your nine was on this list and if it was you never got job all or if you're lucky enough to get on the job once they found out you were a sector which is very well documented now and even the companies may doing it when you start to delve a bit deeper. We'll use surprised by what you would discover thinking back now. No but at the time yes I think so. For example with Georgia's case which which was the shook from me the fact that he'd been raising gathering signatures for a petition around homelessness and Housing Typically for women. That was a shock to me that the company would use that to to start to keep track on him but in terms of how like it's particularly in the construction industry how much they Working with the race to a MED that. It's not so much for shock now. I feel like through learning about the blacklisting case. I've I've developed moving understanding of how how these systems operate but I think also just sort of socially how conditioned we are not to speak out and not complain and I think it's really helped me to understand with these things come from them. In terms of being surprised about people being blacklisted. I think the extent to which it was organized an extent to which for example Ian was employed to keep track of these lists the amount of companies in amount of people who were invoked. That feels to me like still like the surprise that that system can support something that is destroying people's lives. I mean I'm sure. Many listeners will be quite surprised to hear about this because of all all you're doing is looking off to workers or finding ordinary rites like simple human minds really. The noise of all of us is if what we were doing was burning places down award in people. They know you know you. There's an understanding about way someone might keep tabs on. Ya this but like when we would just you know raising concerns about health and safety or fats. Very I enjoy always about PII. Jeez actually it's from nineteen ninety two and it says I was involved in its dispute over. Several weeks paid wages so because we had the semester. Actually we've done the work to be. You know that was enough to get one nine on the follow and some of the things that paper on the follow for chest. It's just not irrelevant. And I remember one other follow says that the person was saying wearing an anti-nazi Lake Badge and is assumed to be a member what he will remain to be. Andina hearts will. What would that be bad thing? It's a it's it's the facts of a ways accepted a big companies more. Not like you. If you're you know. Interrupt their built into might profit. It's the debt for the intrusion. The number of companies are involved. Which open about the biggest multinational firms thirds? All of these companies. Were doing this to me. Sounds absolutely incredible. Depth all detail by they kept tune in vigils. I'm Jay. I'm just still amazed. I mean even thinking about you firmly. See I'm just still amazed. I think lots of people are amazed but were so I think learning about how the trade union movement spin oppressed from it so initial founding 's and the fact that the things race where around trade union issues isn't surprising. So when you when you look at it in the history of oppression if the left. It's less of a surprise if I'm honest very surprised. There is a blacklist. What was surprised? Rosie's is the death of it but but since we've been running this campaign loads of stuff has come back for about Monsanto spying. On activists of McDonald spinal. Activists does stuff even in the newspapers wake up at Barclays Bank by went on their own staff and so big corporation sprawling on by disagree with their managerial tactics and you know more interrupted their ability to you. Know might monied isn't really something new. I mean. You know that tournament pool that we leave out. The capitalism cannot these big corporations to Mike Money. A and and and as a group of workers we're standing often so reduce profit margins than I get why they're doing it. I don't think we should. They surprised I'm shocked at the intrusion. I'm outraged but I'm not really surprised that doing it. I think one thing that I'm Steve. He's in the film's Kennedy talks about is feeling that the feelings his family leave him. And the feeling that Yoko up in a conspiracy theory. And that's where I feel like it's really important that people know about people's experiences because it's evident Eric stand to read in and to see so and I think people have those fears of speaking out but when you can see in black and white that this is a reality crushes the conspiracy. Just get moving on from that as well because is not only the corporations who've involved and you mentioned a number of companies that have been involved as well accused of spying on their star form or the workforce the police have also been. This is an arm of the state is also being involved in this timeline. I mean if I'm going to stretch the bit that role shocked when you say that foils. Sometimes it's very obvious. Weighty information comes from it's from a manager building so. I've complained about.

The Zimbabwean Mastermind: Paul Le Roux
"In early two thousand nine thirty. Six Year Old Paul Roux was just beginning to branch out from pharmaceuticals into into more ambitious criminal. Ventures larue was high on his own power but he was also getting paranoid. That paranoia was making him distrust. Trust even is most seasoned employees like Call Center Manager Moran Oz as had no idea that he'd somehow run afoul of Larue. In fact all signs pointed to Larue liking him after ause arrived in Manila larue drove him out to the coast in his own. BMW AM W on the way they stopped at McDonald's for breakfast. Oz knew that larue was a rich man but he wasn't surprised by the breakfast choice. In in fact is was more surprised that larue actually treated him usually win. Larousse employees met him at restaurants he would only order food for himself so their next stop was the Subic Bay Yacht Club where larue paid in advance for houses hotel room. Oz would stay here overnight tonight and then meet the other employees as he headed out to the island of Seibu. The next morning is entered his hotel room that afternoon feeling buoyant. Not only was his boss having him oversee and expansion of his company are limited but he was finally treating is like a peer paying for his food in high end lodging of course as was wrong the entire story about building an Rx limited call center in Sibu had been in a trap now as was in the open ocean with a rifle pointed at him. After a few seconds of gunfire fire. Oz took a breath of relief. He wasn't hit a voice from ondeck shouted down at him. That was to frighten off the sharks. Don't think think I missed the next time will be for you. Dave Smith the talkative British man finally relaid Larousse orders from the satellite phone. When he told is confess and will kill you? Keep denying it and will wound you and leave you to the sharks. Your choice is wracked his brain. What could he possibly need to confess to? He insisted that he done nothing wrong. He hadn't stolen Dolan from the company he would never do anything without Larousse permission. Smith said something into the satellite phone Struggled to stay afloat while larue rude determined his fate after a few more tense moments. One of the muscular men climbed down the yachts ladder. And pulled is back on board is never knew what Larue said on the other end of that phone. Perhaps he only meant to scare him that day or perhaps as had managed managed to talk his way into a stay of execution when Smith brought is back to Subic Bay Yacht club he left him with one final warning. He said we are like an octopus. We have tentacles all over the world. You need to understand that we can reach you everywhere aware. Even in Israel you are not safe anywhere. The following day larue picked up is to bring him back to Manila as got into the car hesitantly. He didn't know what to expect from his volatile boss but his ride with Larue was his only way back home to Israel Summoned the courage to ask why he'd been taken hostage and tortured larue shrugged. He claimed to know nothing about the incident but he also showed no signs of surprise or concern. Instead he told is that he couldn't be held responsible for what is partners might do he said you. Don't want to deal with these guys. They will find you do whatever they say this. This was emblematic of how larue like to handle as business. He rarely solved problems personally. Preferring to issue commands from his phone or laptop up he controlled the action from afar like he was playing a video game like he was God larue also like to use mixed signals and subterfuge fused to keep his employees off balance. No single person ever knew how their role fit into the larger operation and they never knew how larue through really felt about them lose. Employees were doing a wide variety of work all over the world from fielding customer service calls in Israel L. Transporting gold in the Congo to scouting real estate in the Philippines to assembling a militia in Somalia but despite their different skill assets. They all had similar impressions of their mysterious boss. One of Larousse. fixers tim them back as best described Larue as a constant threatening threatening presence he said it was almost like the guy never slept and you never knew which personality you get on the other end when he called he never said who he was but you knew it was him sometimes calm and other times irate and most of the time you never even knew why when Larousse employees finally met him. They didn't know what to expect because there were no photos of him on the Internet but the first thing they noticed was his size is he was white about six feet tall with an enormous girth. The source of Laura's girth wasn't a mystery. He was known to favour fast. Food food like Domino's McDonalds at his desk rather than going out to eat a steak in most aspects of life he prioritized efficiency over quality. He usually dressed in a T.. Shirt cargo shorts and flip flops. The effect was disarming. One employee said nobody has ever thought the the first time they met him that he runs global criminal Empire Larousse accommodation's reflected that as well. He owned a series of high. End condos in Manila Hilla. But all of them were mostly unfurnished aside from couch bid and television but they ran up unusually high electricity bills. That's that's because of course he was constantly running fleets of servers. We're larue was casual about his home and clothing he. He was obsessive about his computer setup. He worked off an ancient laptop operating Microsoft software over ten years. Old sounds announce counter intuitive but he preferred this setup because he was able to fully encrypt the entire hard drive the moment he closed the lid of the laptop laptop the contents would be unreachable by any outsider. Programming and encryption had preoccupied larue since his youth in fact act computers were his. I love Paul was born on December. Twenty Fourth Nineteen Seventy two in Bulawayo Rhodesia Asia today known as Zimbabwe as a child a relative said that larue quote was fought over. Everyone wanted him. Our grandparents grandparents worship the ground. He walked on when he was a teenager. Larousse family moved to South Africa in search of better education larue resented and having to learn Afrikaans. The local language spoken in school. He felt superior to his classmates referring to them as halfwits and and morons his elevation came in his first computer. As soon as Laura realized he could build entire worlds in code worlds were governed by his rules he was hooked. One of Larousse Cousins Remembers Teenage Larue as quote completely antisocial Dole. Every time we went there he was always hold up in his room. I remember going in and seeing lines and lines of numbers on the screen and it didn't take Kim long at all to figure out how coating could start bringing in money illegally of course in nineteen eighty nine. The police leased showed up at Laura's Johannesburg home and arrested the sixteen year old for selling pornography in these early days before the Internet it appeared heared larue had revolutionized pornography distribution by going digital but the specifics to his operation. Remain Murky to this day. What we do know for sure was that Paul's parents were appalled but he himself just laughed? When Larue retold this story with with a plumbing pride he would recall how silly the entire situation seemed to him? Everyone would have praised him if he'd found a new method of selling books or Lennon's all this fuss just because his commodity was porn chip as long as Larue was making money. He didn't care what he was selling and even as a teenager he didn't care about breaking the law he didn't care about exploiting others later on that instinct would have disastrous stress results. Not just for larue himself. But also for his employees and the entire country of the United States
