Loujain al-Hathloul, Saudi women's rights activist, released from prison
"Done nothing except champion. A woman's right to drive a car. But yesterday saudi arabian activists widow. Jane hathloul was released after a thousand and one days in prison. Family members and international human rights groups have been calling for her release and an end to her alleged torture. Al hathloul was arrested in two thousand eighteen for leading a campaign to grant women the right to drive in saudi arabia. Dr best mamani joins me. Now she's a professor of political science at the university of waterloo canada. Welcome to the program. How significant is this Lujan al hathloul release from jail. Well it's just wonderful news to be honest with you. I think so. Many of us were worried for her. She's a wonderful person. And i think certainly the fact that She's finally been released is a great thing. But they're still a lot of concern about her situation. And i think there's going to be a large discussion. And hopefully she'll be able to at some point talk about the really the suffering she endured. I mean the photo of her after release. It's joyous smile. But how does login even start to rebuild life after trauma like this. There are allegations of torture during your time in jail. So i think the rebuilding process for her is going to be significant. Certainly of course the the trauma being imprisoned I think there was abuse That may have been sexual nature as well torture from looking at the picture. She's clearly thinner. She has gray hair now and i met her five years ago with not a not a single gray hair on her head and i mean there's definitely a beaming smile in the photo. And that's because she's with her her parents but she still separated from her siblings of course many of which are outside the country and ex husband. You know there was a falling out of of a marriage because of the so. I think there's there's a lot of pain and suffering. I'm sure aside from her parents. You have a sense of what her support system in. Saudi is no i think She's certainly under a some sort of gag. Order not to speak to people and i suspect House arrested is a part of that. So she's not gonna have free movement in any way She has a wonderful family parents. Who are very supportive And have been really behind her from from day one of her activism. they're really quite impressive. People dutchwoman. Let's get to the bigger picture. We know that crown prince of saudi arabia mohammed bin salman sees himself as a reformer. What impact could james release have on the internal politics of saudi. Arabia haven't been really wants to take this as a win. A certainly i think if it wasn't for the biden administration coming in. I don't think we would have seen her release unfortunately so elections matter as they say but one of the things that i think her story will be told hush hush i think many people are discussing it online and certainly social media buzz there some very interesting hashtags and saudis twitter to talk about all these kinds of issues there still a lot of great discontent at the same time. Unfortunately hamad bin salman is seen as reformer in some way internally. He's opened up the country culturally. And and certainly you know. Put down the conservative or religious police which is a welcome news for young people. So you know. I think she she would be to be honest with you and more popular of saudi arabia than inside saudi arabia. But that's partly because of kind of nationalist propaganda that has permeated much of saudi society today.
Biden announces US will sanction Myanmar's military leaders following coup
"Last week's data in myanmar provided the new us administration of president joe biden with its first major foreign policy crisis. We now have an idea of america's response. President biden has signed an executive order imposing sanctions on the coup leaders. This will be followed by measures to block the myanmar's military access to government funds held in the us. Further measures seem likely showed the gionta not to american demands that democratic order be restored one by louis lukens former. Us diplomat now senior partner with cigna global advisors liu first of all this all seem certainly measured against the last four years widely normal. Doesn't it well it does. You're right andrew. It does seem normal and there is a policy process in washington. That was carried out there. Tony blinken and president biden consulted with about this issue and then came to a decision to impose sanctions so very normal. Didn't learn about it by tweet. Sort of back to the good old days of foreign policy. I think not that. I'm wishing to sound overly nostalgic four the immediately preceding four years. But in an instance like this is this orthodoxy helpful. I mean the demand. Maurice generals rather priced this in. Wouldn't they well. The process and the consultant with allies is helpful whether sanctions themselves will be useful remains to be seen sanctions. Tend to have very limited effectiveness and the people who are targeted by sanctions. In this case the military leadership Tend to be able to to be somewhat immune to the effects of the sanctions. They and so the. Us has walk a very fine line in trying to punish the leadership but in a way. That doesn't actually trickle down and really hurt. The the average burmese people who who are responsible for the the off course well just as a general principle then. Is there any reason to imagine that the people behind the coup. D'etat actually care what. The united states thinks that. This point probably not much reason to think that they care you know. China is their number one trading partner. They do roughly three third of their trade with china and the us is not even in the top five list of trading partners So you know it's great that the us has a couple allies on board. And i think the tony blinken talk to his japanese counterpart yesterday to to sort of coordinate a little bit on this but if china is not going to impose sanctions which they won't it really reduces the effectiveness of what the us can do in that especially in that country where we have very few ties. So how much of the american response. So far and i guess what we might still see often. American response is not so much the new. Us administration hoping it can affect an outcome in this specific circumstance but is more trying to set a general tone trying to establish. This is how this administration is going to do business. This is how we're going to react to things. Yeah look. I mean even if even if the sanctions are completely symbolic sends an important message that the that the united states will not tolerate this kind of activity and will work to promote the the sustenance of democratic governments around the world if the united states had ignored the coup in myanmar mar. I think that would send a message to people thinking about overthrowing governments around the world that hey we can do this now and get away with it now. The burmese military leaders may still get away with it remains to be seen whether the us sanctions will have any effect or not but the us had to send a message in some ways. This is a new administration and we're gonna take democracy seriously. How much more. Careful is the united states being about me on mob this time than it might have been during the previous stretch of military rule because in that period of course it did seem like a much more straightforward good guys versus bad guys proposition than you had this. All neha canonized a leader in waiting under house arrest on sang suci Whose stature. I think has been somewhat reduced by her own complicity with the people who've just thrown out of a job. Yeah i mean certainly. Her stature has been diminished over the last years in. Not just yeah. i mean. Basically because of her alignment with the military leaders in sort of her reaction to the the genocide in myanmar. That said i think the united states is trying to look at is not from the perspective of individual personalities but from the perspective of the principles of democracy and our unwillingness or or distaste for To go along with with appearing to support a military coup so we have to come out. The united states had to come out and strongly against this coup and short of military action economic sanctions against the people who perpetrated a coup really. The only way to go for now. The united states does of course have a diplomatic relationship with me on march for the moment at least any way you have been a diplomat serving abroad for the united states in a in a circumstance like this is there anything ambassadors another embassy staff on the ground candu or is it more likely case. They've just been told to make as little noise as they possibly can. Well i think the probably been quite vocal. I think in and you have to walk a fine line. You don't wanna be so vocal against the new leaders in the military that that you get thrown out of the country because certainly that is a possibility now. But you wanna make america's presence known and you wanna know you wanna make america's policies known so my guess is that Certainly through social media which is of limited value in me mark. I think the government has cut down. Cut off a lot of the internet but they they will be trying to work through their networks of of Dissenters and people in civil society to try to get the word out that the united states is with you. And we're working on this. How important is it to the united states to get at least some sort of result out of this. I mean i understand what you're saying about. How the united states is obliged to lay down the law here especially with the new administration but he is there a risk that they are seen to have done exactly that and have not make the blindest bit of difference to anything. Well there is a risk. I mean if if the us government left it as it is now the just the sanctions. That would be a worry but my guess is that Tony blinken will be is embarking on on a of diplomacy with counterparts around the world to try to to you take it to the next level not necessarily only through sanctions through a global reaction against this coup again. It comes back to the challenge. That is hard to do something. The un security council If china doesn't go along with it and china's unlikely to go along with any condemnation of the military leaders in in myanmar But i think tony blinken will certainly be trying to rally allies onto the us side honest
What's happening at the protests in Myanmar?
"Maybe we should just start with where we are today so we're recording this uk. Time on tuesday morning. We're about a week out from the code. What's your understanding of. The current situation is on the first of february army took over arrested. The president's in the de facto head of government on succi said that they were acting within the emergency provisions of the constitution. They said that they would hand back. Power after holding elections within a year's time since then protests have been growing every day. They've spread around the country in several different towns and cities over the past forty eight hours. We've seen massive protests in the biggest city former capital. Rangoon may be hundreds of thousands of people on the streets yesterday yesterday evening. The government put out new regulations. And this morning. They also blocked major intersections and bridges as well in the city so the protests i think have become smaller but they have continued at in naypyidaw the capital. We're getting the first reports that someone may have been killed in altercations between protesters and the security forces. So it's a very very fluid time. We don't know what momentum the protests have they seen bay determined people seem incredibly energized in their desire to oppose takeover by the military. But we don't know what's going to happen because this is an army after all that's crushed many uprisings and demonstrations in the past. So we'll come onto what might come next In a bed. But what's your best understanding of why now so the ostensible reason that's been given is unhappiness about the elections but the elections were in november. So why february. So the elections were in early november around the same week as a. Us elections the commander in chief. The head of the army who turned sixty five. This year is meant to retire. I think he had thought that he might have a chance of of becoming the president after the elections. I think he had hoped that the pro army party the union solidarity and development party usdp would do reasonably well as well as many ethnic minority parties. Were contesting the elections as well when they didn't do well when the nfl the party amongst says suci a landslide. Victory the army. I said they would recognize and respect. The results but in december came increasing allegations from the us dp side of massive electoral fraud. And the army commander in chief and others in the army latched onto that and demanded an investigation that call for an investigation was rejected by the union election commission and that led in january two demands by the army that there'd be a special session of parliament to discuss these allegations that was also rejected by the speaker of the lower house of parliament that was followed by ultimatum and parliament the new parliament the newly elected parliament was meant to sit on the first february and the ultimatum was the weekend before the ultimatum past attempts back and forth reaching compromise that failed in the army seized power just on the on the eve of parliament sitting and the promise now is of new elections within the next twelve months so what reason is that i think that the outcome would be any different unless the elections themselves setup in such ways to guarantee a different outcome given what happened in november given the result would elections at any point in the next twelve months produce a different results. It's very difficult to say that they would. I mean the analogy won a landslide. I think with the army takeover. If anything else has g is more popular than ever strength of feeling against other militaries very high. I think the the pro army party would do even worse if elections were held today or unit. In years time. I think a couple of different sort of possibilities. I mean one is that you know. Assess has now been charged with illegal. Possession of walkie talkies communications equipment. That carries i think maximum prison sentence of three years. One thing would be that they would keep her under house arrest for this period through the next elections which is what they did back in. The army did back in twenty ten when elections were held than the other. Possibility is that they would disband the analogy. The other might be that they hold fresh elections and count on the d. says gee boycotting those elections. They're different possibilities. There's also the possibility that they might try to change the electoral system from first past post system to a proportional representation system in which case smaller parties including the ethnic minority parties. Might do better than they might think that they would have a better chance because the army has an automatic hold on twenty five percent of the seats so they actually just need allied parties to to win twenty five percent up to choose the president and a new government
Internet blackout fails to deter thousands from protesting Myanmar coup
"Thousands taking to the streets of Myanmar first. Second day today, protesting a military coup demonstrators in the city of Young Gon demanding the release of ousted leader Kun Sun Souci, who is reportedly Under house arrest after being detained during the military takeover, which happened about a week ago.

Myanmar Erupts in Protests After Military Coup
"Seeing members of the civilian government arrested on military vehicles back on the move has sent a shudder of apprehension across Myanmar people. The BBC has contacted their have spoken of their fear about what comes next. The military coup has taken the outside world by surprise, too. The United States government has announced it will rethink its decision on sanctions, which were lifted in light of the moves towards democracy since 2010 at night people in towns and cities in Myanmar bang pots and pans in protest of the military takeover. Jonathan head. Military coups. Real hunters taking over with uniforms, lots of braid and tanks on the streets. It becomes such an aberration that when they do happen, there is always an element of disbelief. It's as though a part of our breakneck technology driven world is suddenly catapulted back Toe a bad movie from the 19 seventies. One that took place in Mama on Monday was especially baffling as it was carried out by an army which had designed the Democratic system it over through and it kept so much political power under it. Coup seemed unnecessary. And it deposed, uncensored uchi, a leader once idolized as a fearless champion of freedom but who in defending the military against charges of genocide was then denounced as a fallen angel. Gamma is a fearfully complicated country with a history, which has bean traumatic even by Southeast Asia's turbulence standards. Get the rest of the world has bean unable to see it this way because of the overpowering draw of a woman veiled in a mythical aura, combining fragile femininity with steely resolve magnetic charm. With imperious detachment. She was the stuff of fairy tales, holding out a loan against an antediluvian and brutal military and eventually cajoling them into giving the Burmese people free elections. And in huge numbers, they chose her. That narrative, though, has been hard to square with the woman who also appeared callously insensitive to the horrors endured by Muslim RA hinges on her watch. Now we're being asked to reengage with uncensored DCI in military custody Once more. I've seen lively debates among engaged Burma watches over whether she should be supported again as the imprisoned symbol of her people's democratic aspirations. Or not, because of the many undemocratic impulses she showed, is the country's defacto leader. How did we get so focused on this one person in a country of 55 million and in a region with so many other woeful tales of injustice that deserve our attention. Partly it's about timing. Went on sans Souci first emerged as a political figure in 1988 on what was supposed to be a short trip home from Britain, where she lived with her British husband and two sons, Burma as it was then called Was little known trapped in military imposed isolation. A terrible repression of the protest movement. She led on the start of her long incarceration coincided with the collapse of communism in Europe and the rise of a new World order. In which it was hoped Western or U. N. Led intervention could write many of the world's wrongs. She was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991, just a year after the release of Nelson Mandela from prison, and it was hard not to see similarities in their dignity and fortitude. Like Mandela, uncensored cheese. Long periods of isolation under house arrest meant that few got to know her well, and the world instead projected an ideal ized version onto a complex and difficult personality. She came to embody the optimistic belief that the arc of history in the memorable phrase used by President Obama, whose visit to Myanmar marks the high point of uncensored cheese reputation. Was bending inevitably towards democracy and freedom. Fast forward to this year, and all that optimism has long since dissolved in the disappointments in Afghanistan and Iraq in a global financial crash in bitterly polarized politics. And now a pandemic. Few believe anymore in the kind of miracles that Myanmar's transition to democracy was once thought to be. United Nations Security Council, the embryonic world government that never, Watts has mastered a statement of concern over Mama, which failed even to mention the coup the illegal overthrow of an elected government. On San Souci is now being charged with the laughable a fence of possessing illegal walkie talkies. That will be enough, though for the hunter to disqualify her from the new election. It's promising to hold eventually. Have done this to her before, but she is now 75 years old. If she manages another political reincarnation, the generals are betting she'll no longer be the resolute figure they've bean unable to beat for so long. And perhaps it's time for all of us. Even the party she founded and has dominated for more than three decades to let go of the woman. They still call Mother Sue and the Lady. And to seek younger personalities who can chart Myanmar's future.
Myanmar Military Shuts Down Internet As Public Fury Over Coup Intensifies

Journalist In Myanmar Recounts Ongoing Military Coup
"No one quite expected them to do it. That's what a journalist says in Myanmar after a military coup. The armed forces have never been fully out of power in that country. But in 2015, they allow democratic elections won by the party of Aung San Souci. She had received a Nobel Prize for her decades long fight for democracy, including years under arrest. The military's partial retreat allowed me and Marta and its global isolation. Then this week, the military retook full power and on sans Souci is detained again. Parts of the Internet are blocked and Myanmar but we reached journalist Amen Thon and Yangon, which is a city of some five million. There's a curfew union go on at 8 P.m.. Every night, People have been going on to the bathroom ease or outside to the front of their homes and banging pots and pans. It's a traditional Berman's ritual to get rid of evil spirits in your house every night. It's been getting louder and longer, and you could just hear the sound echoing through the city. We should remind people that the coup was over and election result in November and had been feared for some time. Was there a great deal of suspense in recent months? Not really. But it wasn't a complete surprise, but no one quite expected them to do it. People assume that that this was, you know, posturing and threats. But you know, leading up to the last couple days before the coup. There were some really alarming pictures of a tank in London, as well as unusual movements by the military near military installations throughout man lost Even then, people didn't really think they would actually do a real coup. What did you hear from people when it became clear that it really was a co was quite a lot of despair. I think, especially for people of my parent's generation, so people the fifties and sixties and older, I think they just didn't expect it. You know, they worshiped essentially insensitivity all their lives, and I think they had a really difficult time really coming to terms that they hadn't won after all in 2015. I'd like you to explain that perspective because some Americans who follow events from Myanmar maybe only know Aung San Souci as a civilian leader who failed to condemn Genocide of Ranga in Myanmar. What was it that she has done over the last decades that made her someone that they would feel so strongly about? Sure, if you're just having a conversation here, and someone talks about a May your mother They're often talking about her. I grew up in the US, but our house is covered with pictures apparently had annual calendars that have her picture in it. Ah, lot of people breathing really admire her. They see her. Someone who wants she was young woman came back to me in life, despite the fact that she was living a perfectly lovely life in the U. K to take care of her ailing mother. And then stepped up when she could have left in order to fight for the Burmese people. And then decided instead of being with her family to stay in your more and you know people respect that. You're referring to the period after she won an earlier election in the 19 eighties, and it was not accepted by the military, which kept her In prison or in house arrest for many years. Yeah, for 15 years. She basically was in a position where the military said If you want to leave, you can leave. But if you want to be here, you won't be free. Other than climbing the pots and pans at eight o'clock each evening. What are people doing about the coup? There's been a lot of online organizing. There's a couple hashtags feeling around hash tag, civil disobedience movement as well as hashtag justice from you more But part of the civil disobedience movement is doctors and teachers, the majority of whom here work for government institutions essentially going on the strike doctors, especially since Cove, it Still providing medical care, but they just simply choosing not to do it. Government institutions. If I may, there could be some severe consequences for that. Yes, definitely. I don't think we're talking enough about this yet, but It's quite likely that we're going to see a spike in cold cases. What do you expect Ng over the next few days? I'm expecting just more of a reaction to the growing protest movement. There's been what seems to be Very clearly this information campaigns that are intended to kind of paralyzed people through fear and the lack of knowledge, But we're also starting to see more and more people going out into Streets to protest. Amen. Thon is a journalist who is in Yangon. Thank you. Okay.

Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny is sentenced in Moscow to 3½ years in jail
"The last several weeks we've been talking about Alexei of all need russia and anti corruption activist. Opposition leader general thornton flattery. Putin side last august navalny was poisoned. He was nearly killed by putin's goons. He had to germany for treatment but decided to come back to moscow A few weeks ago where he was immediately arrested there were big protests over the weekend know today a russian court sentenced need to an additional two and a half years in prison for what was essentially a parole violation You know that this verdict is a joke because you know some of these alleged parole violations happened when vanni was recovering. Germany from being poisoned Near the end of the trial in the ball and denounce putin and said he will go down in history as vladimir the poisoner underpants the The recent east. That is the poison us against vol. Knee was reportedly put on his underwear. That's how they apply to him so as we were preparing to record hundreds of of riot. Police have filled up red square and other places in central moscow. Tony blinken. the secretary of state has called for nevada's immediate. and unconditional. release ben. This seems like a a big change in terms of how putin is dealing with navan. The this trial was like big and it was public Previously russian authorities hadn't punished to develop nearly a severely. He'd gotten house arrest. He'd gotten sure sentences but you know the thinking then seemed to be they didn't wanna martyr him Now he may be locked up for several years. I'm sure that biden's national security team is like debating all of this as we speak. What do you think. The range of options are here to respond. And like what are you. What do you recommend they do. Well you know. I think the sense Again is a human tragedy nevada other. He knew he knew the risks is taking and he may have wanted to force the issue And he's proven the massive support he has and i think this will only increase the support You know because people see that the unfairness and corruption of of this of this ruling. I think for biden again. It's related to what we said that he can't there's no action he can take right now. That's going to force russia to release alexi of only what he can do is shine. A spotlight never stopped talking about alexey navalny every single time that anything comes up with russia election of all these case should be front and center. The world's attention needs to stay on his case every single day that he's in prison. I think more importantly because people can talk about sanctions. But we've mentioned this on the show. Before what has alexei navalny really honed. In on that has resonated the russian public it is vladimir putin's corruption that video showed of this billion dollar palace that putin clearly felt like he got caught because he's been denying it and now they they tried some saying. Oh no it's my hotel when it's pretty obviously bodmer putin's billion dollar house that he goes to hang out and and i think what joe biden can do. In the biden administration is continued. The work that alexi only was doing an revealing vladimir putin's corruption in spotlighting that corruption in high leading for people. Just how much money this is worth. And where his money is and how his money flows through the financial
Myanmar's Suu Kyi detained again, without her old support
"Very sad news out of me on mars. Some people call it. Burma long story there. Were it's going to go with myanmar for the purposes of this show but over the weekend the military staged a coup They surrounded myanmar's parliament building and arrested top civilian leaders like onto chee. The commander in chief of burma's military is now defacto in charge. The military has declared a year long state of emergency for those who don't know on succi is a political leader a nobel peace prize winner who spent decades under house arrest because of the military. She's revered and also controversial. Figure so ben we can start this story in a lot of places what you like. Twenty seven two thousand fifteen nineteen sixty two nineteen forty eight but i think for now maybe we just go back to november of last year. That was when aung san suu cheese national league for democracy party trounced the military's proxy party the union solidarity and development party in these parliamentary elections. I think her party won. Like seventy or eighty percent of the vote in this threatened the military's control of the country which they had a lot of because of how your mars constitution is set up in so the military quickly declared that this election was fraudulent. There was a lot of chatter and concern and speculation about a potential coup. It's sort of increased ever since november when that election occurred I should know that election observers international observers don't believe there was fraud but this coup finally occurred over the weekend on the day that the parliament was supposed to convenient for its first session and not coincidentally Also means that mars top general ghosts from this lame duck figure who is gonna retire in june to a defacto dictator. So ben what. What else do you think people need to know about what happened and like despite you know all these concerns into predictions that had been building over time we surprised that the military ultimately went through in just seized power in a very classic old school military coup this weekend. Well i think first and foremost it's a tragedy for the people of myanmar. I think what people need to understand. Is that the competition between aung. San suu kyi in the military has never been resolved and it goes back. Many decades in the military's been in charge for most of the en marche history as an independent country on. She went back to the country and won a landslide democratic election. One thousand nine hundred and the milton validated and through in prison and put under house arrest is essentially and it wasn't until two thousand eleven that she was able to re enter politics and there was this moment in two thousand fifteen when her party. The ldp won a landslide election. But that didn't mean that she had the power she became what's called the state councillor because the constitution expressly prohibited her from becoming president. There was a provision in the constitution written into the constitution. That said if you had foreign born children you could not become president and was ridden with her in mind. The military under the constitution prescribed itself a twenty five percent bloc in the parliament which was enough to prevent them from allowing the constitution to be amended. So you can see what was going on here. The military was trying to wrest power right and and keep its economic interest by the way too because they're corrupt the enrich themselves all their power. All their money could be a risk if onkelinx and the nfl could reform the constitution and so since she won that election in two thousand fifteen her five-year term the five-year. Parliamentary term was very tense because she wanted to reform the constitution. The military obviously didn't want her to do that. You have but we talked about a lot. The ethnic cleansing of the hindu got a lot of attention where she seemed to not want to challenge the military in part. Because she didn't want what just happened to happen you know. She thought that she might be able to co op. Some of the military to make a deal with them to show them perhaps said she was in his threatening as they might have thought but this question was unresolved and she had a very negative relationship. But just a rivalry with this commander in chief. Minhang lung The two of them did not like each other did not get along. I met when i met with her. But when i was still government. She would complain about him that he he wanted to do something like this. She spoke about fears of a coup. So this has been lurking in the backdrop despite kind of the partial democratic opening. It's taken place in the
Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny jailed by Russian court.
"A russian court jailed kremlin critic alexei navalny on tuesday ignoring the west in a ruling. The opposition politician blamed on president vladimir putin's personal hatred and fear of him. The moscow court handed valmy a three and a half year sentence but he's lawyer said the anti corruption blogger would actually serve two years and eight months in jail because of time already spent on the house arrest. He's lawyers said they would appeal. The decision which followed nationwide protests.

Myanmar coup: What is happening and why?
"United kicked off the year with an attempted coup and myanmar kicked off this month with a successful on me and mas military has seized power in a coup against the democratically elected government. There me and mars military moved in in myanmar's capital. The bridge to parliament is blocked by police. And the roads are lined with military and move the country's elected leader and her cabinet out somewhere behind the guns aung san suu. She is once more prisoner of the generals but even though the military swept a democratically elected leader out of power this isn't quite a textbook takeover even before this hour coup happened. The military was really with sharing their power with a civilian government. Dr van trend study social movements in myanmar. So we asked him to explain. Why a military that already had plenty of power in myanmar decided to take all during the general election that happens in november. Two thousand twenty. The result was a landslide for the ruling party of that time. Which was the national league of democracy. The first official results trickling men from mass general elections giving three parliamentary seats to suit. She's national league for democracy even before the final count is in the potty says it's confident of a landslide win however the military claimed that there was widespread voter fraud and that there were millions of ballots that were missing and they requested the Government led by the national league of democracy an auditor to investigate these claims of voter fraud. And what's also important to note is that there is the national local election observers who've seen the entire process from the voter lists to the election and they said that the election in street and fifth they have had talks and meetings with that the governments in the preceding days however those talks and discussions have not led to any kind of agreements between the two sides and since they failed to reach an any kind of agreement is very likely that there was a reason why they have decided to go forward with the crew right before a new parliament. We're supposed to convene. How did this get to the point of a coup. I mean i. I know the military in myanmar had been a strong presence already. Even you know throughout the leadership of unsung cheap but were there warnings there might be a coup so the relationship between the energy party and the military has always been a complicated one back in two thousand ten when they decided to carry out a political liberalization. They didn't want to have all of the political power of the military to be stripped away. Even before voters cast. The result is ensured. Twenty five percent of saints will go to the military alliances with the current regime have been made to ensure political survival in more than forty percent of seats. The only content as a candidates linked to the current regime or does not regarded as a fridge with the and government since two thousand fifteen They have been trying to tread very delicately in terms of how they deal with the the the military they try not to confront with military on various policy issues including the rowing crisis fall. There's an extraordinary scene playing out. On the world stage this morning nobel peace prize winner on san succi defending her country of myanmar against genocide charges in the international court of justice. She's also standing up for the say military. They kept her under house arrest for years. However you know like in the past year s We got closer to the election. In two thousand twenty the on sense which he led government and the different and the mp's have also tried to propose these amendments to the constitutions to give a very very obvious example twenty five percent of our percents of not elected and we believe that for democracy to behold complete all the representatives must be elected and that would basically strip away a lot of these different powers and controls of the military and wish strip away. You know quite a few of his decision making power. That is something that the military also find to be. Quite worrying doesn't mean it wasn't really surprised coup. I was It is always a surprise. Of course when you look back you can see various factors right. That could help explain why the military decided to take over power to to to conduct this military coup at this moment but before it happened everybody always had hope that people in myanmar or at least a majority of people in myanmar will still be able to continue enjoying their rights and their freedoms

You know they got something to look forward to they got an hour and a half two hours of hopefully some laughs and some knowledge in. That that makes me happy. On the square no bullshit does I get I'm getting messages from people all over the world are not people asking for subtitles in different languages of the podcast So that's the Youtube version obviously but I, it's very it's very moving. It's moving to know that People are into it and takes at least taken them away from whatever difficulties going on at least for two hours hour and a half. That's very cool and speaking of difficulties our friend, Pete Hamill. My favorite writer he is he passed away fairly recently and I just want to rest and fees Piazza. He was a he was a New York, Legend of Voice of the city and a voice of our times, and we're friends with the Hamill family. And we send our condolences to all. Never read his book There's plenty of books a lot of them but. Call the drinking life is great arithmetic terrific book. My best appeared Hamel show today I wanted to ask you and I'm going to quiz you actually you know lot of people ask me especially our good friend, Barry Watkins Barry. I'll dear friend for Madison Square Garden and numerous other things what all these credits made at the beginning who are these people? Co Producer executive producer. Oh well, that depends equal edited by ib what do they do? Well, casting people, we know what we've had him on Monday find the actors they bring the actors to the to the director or producer and. You know they're the link there for actors that critical get it. You know getting a casting director in your corner will help you career exponentially. Like the bouncer stay, they could get you in the door but there are also advocates for you. I mean when I was first starting out it was deb Aquilla, it was Sheila Jaffe Georgia and walk in It was people like that. Who early on before I had done anything you know turned me onto agents, introduced me to agents and Got Me Work and got me seen and I'm indebted to those people. Know. Absolutely. I mean I wanna Lewis Julia Taylor those you know I've been helped. I've been helped, of, of course. Casting agent doesn't like you. They won't bring you in and. Doesn't like you your agent. You know I had. My first agent there who was a Jack Off You know he is such a nasty Bassett that. He such a nasty bastard. This guy that. People won't see his clients. So it's awfully you with this guy. I was with two from what I very first started Oh four, five years. We started out as friends then he became a lunatic. he narrowcasting people that won't see his client. So it's hard enough to get an audition and it's hard enough to get a job, and now you've got the hate the agent so they're not going to see the client man you know. So you know. All right. So created by David Chase he's the guy obviously who created who thought their idea it was his idea edited by. The editor that's the person who cuts it and puts together. You know from the assembly of all the different scenes in takes they they put it together and that's You know they say the is made in three stages. It's the writing you know the the writing then the production shooting and the editing and editing is a lot like writing. You know because you're. You're taking all these pieces and you're putting it together in a way that becomes an experience. Often it's different than the script. It's not always following the script. You might find a better way to tell the stories you know that's was not the sequence of scenes in the script and and an editor can make or break movie I. Mean It's critical critical job. Or is it there? There's a process across I think from if I'm. Not Wrong here, the director gets shot. He he he delivers his cut after they shoot episode to Director Per Union. He's allowed his cut. Yeah. But he does that with the editor. At but usually it's executives David Chase however west of final saying. It depends on the project. Yes. TV is one thing movies are different in order independent movies are another story. It's the same with producing credits vary in terms of project. In independent movies you can give an associate producer credit to someone who introduced you to someone who brought money. Well, that happens that happens you can get a producer credit you know I mean. Sometimes, when you're chopping script around someone passes the script to someone else and they want credit, you know they, they were breathing next to the script and they think they deserve credit. You know it's it's sometimes can be very. You know. Nebulous. Also this executive producers that put up money for the project, put up the money or find the money on something like a big movie or the Sopranos we had Brad, Gray? who was an executive producer who is David's manager and also was a you know how to production was probably brought the script to HBO and Got David in their Often. Executive producer if you hang around long enough you're a writer and you're now you're consulting producer, you'll start off at that eventually co executive producer if you've become very important and critical to the production. Producers usually in nuts and bolts guy who's Putting together, the production line producer line producer producer line producer is like He's the day to day but producer. Like Irwin Winkler say he gets reduced the credits on lots of big move. He did when he was you know was alive. He put together the deal, get the director to the studio and put put together all those things in place I mean it's it those credits in vary. Of. Course. But basically, the executive producer. He gets a hold of the script maybe buys the script. K.. He gets to director he gets the actors. He puts the pieces to the puzzle together the producer. An executive producer is the guy that hired the director. Sometimes not always this is also something for actors, your credits that's the she ate it. You know. So meaning on the screen t the two main titles. Yeah. If, you're a big star you're above the credits above. the title of the movie right. Like when I started on the Sopranos I was in the back.
