And when he saw there was a were reporters with us On his his his tour and one of the reporters asked him. Have you seen this before. And he said this is common in the developed world. And i thought that that spoke loudly of what i had phil for all of these years did this and so what what people would see a new taken. So many people to this and observe their shock at what they saw was often in a peace pipe. V pipe running from home or a trailer to a hole in the backyard. And then when you get closer what you see.

While city must husband played a more anglicized role in the colonial government city, my herself understood the needs of those living in rural areas. Said Ema, and Solomon had three children.

I nineteen forty-eight Salen was headed towards independence from Britain and city Mos home was packed to the brim with her husband's political associates, discussing strategy and the future of the country Solomon viewed his wife's role as a submissive one.

The unstoppable Fannie Lou Hamer
"She walked with a limp. She had a blood clot behind her eye from being severely beaten in Mississippi jail. Her name was was Fannie Lou Hamer. She was the youngest of twenty children born to black sharecroppers in Mississippi and in late nineteen sixty four for president Lyndon B Johnson was absolutely terrified of her why she was about to make make an appeal before the credentials panel at the Democratic National Convention. The potential implications were profound. Hamer represented the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party a racially integrated coalition of delegates Hamer wanted to challenge the seats of the current aren't all white democratic delegation from their state saying that they were in violation of the party's rules because they had systematically excluded excluded black citizens according to Time magazine. Johnson was worried that Hamer speech could offend the Southern Democrats whose votes he needed for reelection he wanted her silenced but Hamer had a following that rivaled that of Dr Martin Luther Author King Junior and she would not go unheard. Hamer was born in one thousand nine hundred seventeen in the Mississippi Delta. The share cropping system kept her parents in debt and without enough food to feed their twenty children in the Winter Hebrew tied rags on her feet because she often didn't have shoes. She started picking cotton when she was six years old. Aw Hamer started her civil rights work in nineteen sixty one after she was sterilized without consent during what it should have been a minor surgery she tried to register to vote in one thousand nine hundred sixty two but was turned away after she failed illiteracy literacy tests which were used in the south to discourage black people from voting the clerk asked Hamer complicated questions like interpreting the state constitution after she failed the test. She told the clerk she'd be back when Hamer returned to the plantation in that day. She was fired from her job but she wasn't defeated. Hamer became a student nonviolent. Coordinating Committee a community organizer and helped found the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party in reaction to the lack of integration in the state's Democratic Party party as a candidate from the party. She ran for Congress in nineteen sixty four against democratic incumbent Jamie L whitten at that year's Democratic Democrat National Convention. Hey made her way to the stage through a crowd of men who refused to make space for her other members of the civil rights movement including Martin Luther King Junior spoke but all eyes were on her. She then talked for thirteen minutes Mr Chairman and to could dentures committee. My name is Mrs Fannie Lou Hamer. She called for mandatory delegation an integration and recounted her experience trying to register to vote. It was the thirty first of all the night being the eighteen of US travel. Put the six miles the county courthouse in in the normal tried to register to become first. I player Hamer describes being arrested in beaten in Mississippi jail after white waitress at a rest. Stop refused her service. That's how she got the blood clot. All of this is own account. We won't be registered to become first-class. NFL Freedom Democratic Party is not beating not after her testimony humor and other other Freedom Party members discovered that Johnson a wildly tough politician had held a news conference so that national television networks could he cover her testimony live. She was livid but Johnson's efforts to silencer didn't work that that night in a hot Atlantic City Hotel Room Hamer and the rest of the country watched her testimony broadcast in prime time on the evening news news less than a year later. Congress passed the Voting Rights Act and at the nineteen sixty eight convention in Chicago. He became team the first African American to be seated as a delegate. She received a standing ovation.
Party of ex-Chancellor Kurz wins Austrian election
"Welcome to the briefing we begin by turning our attention to Austria where former Chancellor Sebastian Courts as won a general election and in convincing fashion snap election was called following the collapse of the previous government made up of the People's Party of Mister Courts and the far-right Freedom Party hardy video had revealed the Freedom Party's openness to Russian influence. Peddling courts will now have to choose between shifting left or going back to his former allies in the far right party to form a new government for more on this. I'm joined by tests should covets. UK Correspondent for Austria Profile magazine Tessa. Thank you for joining us and and welcome back to the show Were you surprised at all. I don't buy this results. I think everyone was surprised because the opinion polls before forty elections showed a better resort for prognosis for the far-right what happened I think in the last weeks before the elections was that the far-right Freedom Parthiv got involved. There were some revelations about expense scandals around the leadership and former former head of the party has gone and that further dampen their the the results so a combination of the bitter video scandal from May with these new revelations just kicked him off the chances to return to government as the logical partner that for Christian for Sebastian quote what's so we will see now in long probably difficult coalition negotiations if he indeed will to the Green Party as coalition nations partner. I want to come back to that expensive scandal you mentioned but you are right. The Green Party did surge which is quite curious here sort of square in the middle the People's Party the Conservative Party is the Social Democrats as well which is quite curious. The Conservative Party gained a lot of ground far right lost ground obviously because of of that scandal but with the performance of the Greens does that put into question where the former chancellor is going to look for a new partner in in his coalition while he's definitely the successful populist he managed to gain votes though his previous coalition was failed completely in renewing Australia sort of fear contract with the people in the future so they just had to resign after eighteen months and still he comes out as the one who is the staple prime minister that people trust again to form another government so that's the first thing so the second thing is that the Zeitgeist has changed a little bit in the last two years so the last elections refund on a tough immigration stands after the refugee crisis resulted in strong anxieties in the population this time we're sort of in the middle of Friday's for future a frenzy people thinking about the climate catastrophe more than about the the consequences of immigration could try to push the immigration a topic in all conversations or interviews during during the election campaign but in fact the resides in the success of the green pod shows that the younger voters want something else than the constant immigration debate so they turn to the Green Party and a lot of people in the middle of the society also thought that they wanted some kind of the more open minded and more progressive stance on questions like immigration European Union and end climate and those people voted either green or for this small Liberal Party which was also quite successful. Do we have any indication of which way ah the former chancellor is leaning here for his Coalition Party as he say sort of it is a popular thing now more people are thinking about the climate obviously climate change rather more people voted voted green so he's quite young guy as well not only in age but in his political experience so may he be more curious to to shift left in in building and continuing to grow on his popularity he might and this is a big test now for him as a politician because he was very quickly quickly turning to become one of these right wing populace strongmen tough on immigration and constantly talking about political Islam. I am in how to sort of restrictor these influences in Australian in his Austrian homeland and artists sixty. You know the rhetoric from other other right wing politicians in Europe to now. He has the chance to move back to the middle and do a coalition with the Green Party ideologically. Lee I think this will be quite difficult for him because he has always said that he felt comfortable in the coalition with defy red because they shared a lot of his reform plans and also this anti immigration stance now we will see what he will do and it will be a a very big test also for the Green party because they are much more progressive much more welcoming to immigration much more open minded and in then Sebastian could so for them to go into coalition is quite dangerous too but it's now the moment where Australia has decided and where the Green Party ends passive quits mainly mainly those two have to decide if they want to prevent the fire to come back from into government or not and we will probably see this by the end of the year beginning of next year only the results so the next week will be quite interesting Tessa. Thank you so much for this just fits their

He has now resigned and the Freedom Party has quit the government plunging Austrian politics into crisis. It is an extremely we'd scandal. Indeed verging on inexplicable, if you are a remotely sensible politician is only one rational response to any suggestion by anyone with a Russian accent, that quantity, rubles might be on offer in return for certain surreptitious services rendered that one sensible response. Is this stand up? Thank them for the drink and declared as loudly. And as clearly as possible in the direction of any lamp shades handbags that might be secrete. Eating cameras that you are. Absolutely not interested. Not now not ever. Not for the first time angry. Populists have demonstrated themselves temperamentally unsuited to actual governance. Can Austria's chancellor Sebastian Kurz survive this and seeing as how he brought these dubious far-right Yahoos into power does he deserve to this is the foreign desk? He tried to distance himself from this a little bit, and tried to portray himself as having been sort of transformed, but that infect was not completely true and could took one and a half years. Now to say that this is really enough. And he didn't do this. I mean this video just showed too much of the moon face of his coalition partners. You don't have to take very far to understand that Russian money per meets European politics in a really big way. Loads of Russian money makes its way into European parties through think tanks through various kind of campaign. Pledges. There is a huge problem post himself as somebody who suffered who week demised himself for the nation for the country. But this is sorry to say nonsense, because it was him who built this collision, it was also him who would have had so many possibilities and options to say something nobody told him to suffer. You're listening to the foreign desk with me, Andrew Miller on today's show. We'll take a detailed look at the scandal, which has both up ended and bewildered. Australian politics and ask, if there is a lesson here for voters elsewhere, in Europe, considering supporting populist outsiders, like, for example, don't but I currently of Monaco's correspondent in Vienna outlines what has become known as I beat the gate. It's hard to convey to the outside world, the extent to which the scandal has gripped the Australian imagination everyone who was talking about it in every cafe in every home up enough to guess drinking video was, he comes Alexandrian, a quarter of the population watch that historic speech by chancellor Sebastian courts last Saturday. The one where he said that enough was enough skin. Skin is and that was in the same night as Eurovision and in the spirit of vision. The scandal has given a new lease of life to this nine thousand nine hundred nine hit song by the she adults group, Bengals gets cold. We're going to be, so it's at the top of the charts in Australia. Why? Well. Because of course it was on that Spanish on that the secret video was recorded. Seriously, though, the video came as a complete bombshell, but the fact that it was the Freedom Party, the FBI mass down. So spectacularly was actually not that surprising until compared to if the social Democrats and the conservatives have long very long tradition on their values on their ideology on their programmatic basis, and this is quite different to f f is a party that opposes and not creates. And this is one answer why they always fail by themselves, did Luke was a spokesperson for the former conservative chancellor, Vulcan Schuessel, who also led a coalition government with the F the in the early two thousands. She was that, when that government collapsed would say their challenge is not being. A responsible party who governs? It's more being a party of the opposition. And this is a different role and blow up. It was their own failure. It was not the failure by others. Nobody would think about having another if a if a coalition for the next future. So I think they really knocked out themselves. Is in trouble then. So is the of a pay the conservatives, but things could go either way for them. It all depends on whether their leader chancellor courts survives the no confidence vote on Monday courses being under five using the fat his own ends, and Fulmer coalition with the F the fest place. His public statements have the past week. Have also come in for some criticism. He post himself as somebody who, who suffered two week demise himself for the nation for the country. But this is I'm sorry to say nonsense, because it was him who built this nation it was him.

I'm the anchor and I will guarantee stability, but people are beginning to ask, who's he takes responsibility for this crisis, and that's him. So it's going to be not so easy for him to have the same run during the election. Like trees Sebastian codes loses the no confidence vote on Monday. He'll remain the most popular politician in the country. But what does all this mean for the? All the all fall ride going to slip from political infamy into political obscurity. Alost word from baba told no Mike, my answer would be no. Because we believe experienced the end of the F in the beginning of two thousand to two thousand three some thought, it's the end in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s so I would be very careful to say. It's the end let's, let's remember, do not Trump during his campaign when this recording. When pop Nick, where he talked about what he does with women, and everybody was shock.

"The financial times, as new headquarters in Bracken house, I'm getting in Rachman, and today, we're discussing Austria, where the governing coalition has just collapsed after the far-right Freedom Party were discredited by a sting operation by journalists apparently that showed them apparently open to corruption and to Russian influence. Joining me to discuss on. This is European editor, Ben who'll here in the studio in London. And on the line from Vienna. Our correspondent there Sam Jones Ben festival. It's a slightly convoluted tale. Can you describe what happened? Yes. So Hunterston star who was deputy chancellor of Austria and leader of the far-right Freedom Party was filmed in a covert recording in a Spanish villa discussing illicit party donations in return for government contracts with a wealthy, Russian or woman proposing to be the niece of Russian oligarch. This video was filmed in two thousand seventeen. Before the parliamentary elections, so before he took power, and that doesn't seem to be any evidence that he ever followed through on these discussions, but it was clearly to bigger political scandal for him or for Sebastian Kurz, the chancellor, to ignore and was forced to resign as party leader. And as vice chancellor, so Sam you're in Vienna. I mean did this threaten the actual government itself? While is chancellor Sebastian Kurz, who is a sort of wonder kin of European politics, only thirty two years old and much praised in some circles up until now. How's he coping yet? It precipitated a full-on government crisis as soon as they moved to get rid of stock. He resigned there was then this question over the future of the rest of the year ministers in the cabinet of which, there are four and among the ministries, they control our defense, and the ministry of the interior, being particularly sensitive ones given the revelations in this video and so- Kurtz made clear eventually on some. Sunday that he would like the entire esta ministerial team to resign. And then they resisted him, and eventually, when he tried to get rid of Herbert kick, oh, the interior minister, the FBI resigned on mass and they've gone into opposition against the government and we still actually don't know whether Kurtz will be able to weather this crisis because there is a no confidence vote now scheduled against him on Monday. And so far, the social Democrats who have in their power to decide the outcome of that vote really of sort of wavered as to whether they will or they won't support Kurtz, the key question for them being that. There are the actual elections coming up in September. And those are the sort of prize, they need to focus on, really rather than getting distracted by this political crisis of the moment. So Ben, let's look at the wider European context because I'm an Australia's relatively small country. But this scandal has happened on the eve of the European parliamentary elections, in which the rise of the foul writer, which the Freedom Party. An important component is a big big theme. So how does this fit into the broader European picture will? It's obviously an embarrassment to the other far right? Parties who have teamed up with the Freedom Party, Matteo Salvini, the leader of the hard right league in Italy is orchestrating a new alliance of which the Freedom Party was going to be part. And so the question is, whether it rebounds in those various, national campaigns. Emmanuel Macron, France's certainly using it as a stick to beat marine Le Pen, the French follow right leader, but we'll have to see how it will pan out. I think the significant thing is that Sebastian cooks was blazing. A trail that many conservatives want to go down in Europe, which is shifting away from sort of consensual Centigram, politics, two more right wing, politics, where the center, right? People's parties of Europe, actually cooperate with hard-right parties and take European a more right wing direction. That's what courts was doing in Austria. And that's what quite a few of a nationalist forces, want to do on a European scale. And the fact that it blown up in Vienna. I think presages pretty badly for that kind of route to a more conservative European politics because Amancio, say courts was a bit of a hero. She some on the right in Germany, where I was last week, a lot of people, this is just before the scandal broke, what talking about him as offering a potential model for German politics, which had got sort of, as they saw it stuck in the sort of squishy center. Merckel not really a conservative, as they sort, and that maybe this could be a coach in future for Germany, but perhaps that looks less convincing. Now, I think he probably does. I think he probably has much of the time that he's being chancellor. He has been a bit of a hero for conservatives in Germany, who are fed up with Angela Merkel's centrism and still can't forgive her for opening German doors to the migrant influx in two thousand fifteen in two thousand sixteen and I think he's not just considered in Germany conserved his. In france. Conservatives in Spain who feel that cooks may be had the answer to an insurgent far right? Which is you move onto some of their territory, you may be cooperate with them. But you contain them that way electorally now to a degree that is what happened in Australia in the sense that courts and his People's Party all pretty popular. And they have managed to stop the Freedom Party from overtaking them. But many would argue well what cost essentially, he enabled the Freedom Party to come into power and to do things, which normal center, right parties, wouldn't do vilifying, Muslim, immigrants and infiltrating the security services. So there was a price to pay and the question for courts is whether that damages him politically, and Sam, I mean, this whole question of Russian influences a fascinating, one isn't it because I mean it should be noted that the people that Straka was interviewed with were not actually representing Russian interests. It was a sting and. Yet via generally in this current government has become a source of more welcoming port for Putin's Russia, which is looking for ways of breaking the European Union and Bogo on them. Yeah, I mean, there's sort of two elements to this really one is the story of the F, and the Freedom Party that is, and their particular embrace of Russia, which has been a project is being an intrinsic part of their modernisation, if you like they're sort of turnaround from being a quite traditional if you like nasty Nazi party into a more outward-looking open looking far right? Populist party, which is a good undistracted, and that fifteen year project right from the get-go involved relations with Russia. And of course, the timing worked that because it was around the mid-2000s that Putin began his own turned toward social conservatism in Russian politics to shore up his own political base. So the ideological currents they're made sense. That, that link should develop. But really, since then there's been this infused Jassem to put it mildly for all things Russia, and Russian policy. And it's not just the F, B, O main party. But also all of these organizations the student societies, the youth movements that are connected with them that have mushroomed in Vienna and made the city, a real hub for Russian influence in Europe. The second part to this question, though, is actually the much longer standing historical connections between Austria, and the Austrian state and Russia, because the unsaid part of this story is that actually the Russian government still has excellent contacts. If not better contacts between longstanding senior figures in the Kremlin and mainstream Australian parties and every Australian government of the past fifty or so years, has been very careful to cultivate relations with Russia and for the Russians as well their relationship with the FBI is really just one of convenience. I think based on the fact that the F B owes becoming. This major political force in Australia, and therefore, they needed contact with them. But they've been quite careful the Russians one of the open questions about this struck a video was. Why was then no money previously. That had actually come from Russia. Why was struck her having to accept this money from this as Russian in less? He didn't have money material support from Russia analysts we've spoken to here, sort of seemed to suggest will that portrays the reality of the situation that the has this ideological bond, but not really much of a substantive bond with Russia. And actually, the substantial connections are still with the mainstream Australian parties and Ben. I'm going back to the pan-european side of it, of course, this question of sympathy for Russia is a bit of a theme that runs through all of the resurgent far-right from Salvini league in this lead FDA and Germany lapenne in France. In a way, I suppose for those who grew up in the Cold War was sort of the right as the titular. Urging to Russia. It's an interesting change, isn't it it is. Although would say clearly Vladimir Putin and his style of government and his disparaging of a decadent west sort of fits in with a lot of the far-right narrative, and also autocratic ruler who is not constrained by political correctness or constitutional niceties. The one thing though, is that it doesn't unite all of the nationalist ultra conservative movements in Europe at all. In fact, it's quite a big fault line running through them. And it's why ultimately Poland's law and Justice party will not join with Salvini instructor and lapenne because they distrust Russia, too much. And their view is also echoed, I think, by this Weeden Democrats and possibly some of the other Nordic countries. So I think it's the one reason why you will not have one super far right nationalist party in Europe because of differences over this question. And finally, Sam we've spoken about the way in which the coulds brand. If you like has been damaged perhaps temp. Early in the rest of Europe. Does he still though seem to be likely to be in command of Austrian politics? I mean, how people reading this envenom it's been a tumultuous couple of days where just two days ago. For example, the social Democrats seem to be saying they were going to support the no confidence vote, and then the peo- like they might be supported in that which would have been enough to get rid of Kurtz. But I think he will maintain his grip on the chancellery. I mean for one thing in all of the press, conferences, he has given his performance has been a sort of model of command and authority and control and is very much trying to play the statesman card. He has been helped an awful lot in that by Australia's president Alexander van der Bellen who's a much older figure, but also somebody from a liberal background, who is therefore able to bring along a lot of the center ground in Austria with him. And because he's been working with Kurtz over the past few days. I think that's been the crucial element. That's allowed Kurtz, too. Maintain his credibility, assuming he survives Mondays no confidence vote, which I think he probably will, but could be famous last words, then, of course, we then have a number of months until the September election. And I don't think anyone in that time is going to be seeking to bring down the government because it will be too bad for the campaigning because it will allow Kurtz who still is a member of the largest and most Popular Party in Austria, and still has extremely strong, personal opinion polling ratings. It will allow him to portray himself as the candidate stability and his opponents as those who are seeking to destabilize the Austrian state. Okay. Well, it sounds like we haven't heard the last of item is to cuts all the F B O, but we'll leave it there for now. Thank you very much indeed, to Sam Jones in Vienna to Ben who here in the studio in London..
