Homophonix Artist Interviews: Rainbow Riots

"We begin in Stockholm. It is true that Sweden produces an astonishing amount of legendary music small country. Third and world music exports after the US and the UK. No surprise that within the queer communities are Sweden there exists a bevy of talent. Rainbow Reports is a nonprofit organization using arts and coach as tools to advocate for human rights, LGBT Iq, plus people globally. Now. More than ever. Our focuses humane humans should be equality and acceptance for all. It is clear that social justice is not yet where it should be, which is why arts and coach organizations like Rainbow, riots exist if you're lucky enough to live in a country where there oiled ubt brides, a lot of times people get complacent and they think, oh, this is the norm. This is the standard while it ain't Jinnai they're like seventy plus countries in the world grades illegal with same sex relations and where people get killed where where. A death penalty sometimes. Free. Sometimes I think we have freedom, but the struggle still continues. The filed the torture still continues. The fight for freedom still continues. Let's put our hands together for freedom for freedom. Through Rainbow Riots Hitter Lemberg brings to light the ongoing injustices faced by LGBT plus family worldwide. With a background in music production visuals, events publication in community projects combined with an amazingly generous creative spirit. Is Well to use music and media to inform and educate. Rainbow riots invited artists from several countries to take part in a concert as part of the Stockholm pride two, thousand and seventeen. They also made their presence known within the pride parade from the back of a truck proudly blasting out there incredible musical achievements. I asked Peta which countries were represented. On the rainbow riots flow we had a representatives from Sweden what and we had Uganda Kenya. We had Malawi and we had Jamaica. One of the standout tracks from that for me was a song called freedom. See the crowd. Jumping into. Heard? Freedom. To it in such a way can you tell me up freedom came about when I started making freedom which I co? Bro With? Lesbian rapid called you'll be she's A. Legendary rap group in this in the states called. And when we wrote it, it was kind of like part of my old project housing Wallenberg and kind of thought. It was going to be part of that. But then as I started gravitating towards doing something with Queer activism around the world I, started turning my movement Rainbow Rides into a creative project and I thought well, freedom should be part of that. Really. So that's when I went down to Uganda and started working in Uganda 'cause I thought if I'm going to make this album with queer voices from the world's most dangerous places I've gotta go to the belly of the beast which is Uganda. So I thought okay. Well, I've got to go there ain't going to be nice in preschool ad. And before I went like my passport was running out, so yeah, they add to reissue a possible at the Swedish apple before my flight and they gave me a pink. And I thought. How appropriate with driving along well, exactly Scotland I'm going into Uganda practically waving rainbow flags. This is not going to end well because I was not sure what to expect the anything I'd seen and heard was that nobody nobody in Uganda who was queer was safe and everybody was you know hiding whenever you saw an interview with somebody they will always hiding behind a blood pixellated sort of thing and and not just come to know people going to want to be part of this project. Is it going to be really difficult? What am I going to expect? So therefore came prepared with a song that I'd already written which with freedom I thought at the best maybe I can get some people to dogs in the video at least will have something. But when I arrived, I found a thriving queer community with love creativity and that's how the project started. When I arrived in Uganda realized wow I could really make a whole out I could turn this into something much bigger or they're already artists to establish themselves within the community who were making music. N You lots of quiz singers and performers an artist, and I ended up right in the middle of it. So you know I arrived armed with one song and you know it turned into an album of freedom was starting song, and of course, a features my my old correcting partner you'll be of your majesty but also features a Ugandan singer cold deep lack on bicycle and also on the spoken word intro and the thing about freedom was the I always knew that it was really instant kind of be happy pride song and I just wanted to dot context to put it in. Something else. So it's not just the body, song? To. Put it into context of something really really important life and death and I kinda thought what what better way to to get the message out to make people ons. That was to make them listen.

Why COVID-19 Might Hit African Nations Hardest

"Kovic is occupying a great amount of our tension. We talk about restaurant closures. The economy allocating respirators. And all of these are important. But in some ways they are first world problems in a country like Malawi located in Southern Africa. There is a population of eighteen million people. A life expectancy of only sixty four years but there is little to no healthcare system to speak of health authorities know. There are cove infections. But it's not clear how many we can't even really respond based on where we are in the epidemic. When we have no idea how many cases we actually have. That's Dr Anne Holt. A wild animal veterinarian who lives and works in. Malawi. I caught up with her via skype. Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world. Dr Anne Holt explained. Why social distancing is so difficult to do there? I mean we're talking. Three quarter of the people here are living on less than dollar twenty five a day about eighty percent of the rurally. Social isolation is totally impossible. In part that's because life in Malawi is not easy. People don't spend the day inside a house. Generally so house would be one or two rooms with toilet and shower outside no windows. No electricity and no running. Water and allowing women on average has a four to five children. If you're not going to work going to the market every day then you have no means of feeding yourself. People are doing their best. They try to limit their contact and clean their hands. But there is not even running water with like of running water. Basically what people have is a bucket that's full of water with a tap at the bottom and someone there with gloves who's turning it on and letting people wash their hands with soap so local and national leaders in Malawi have some difficult decisions to make. They could choose to impose strict social isolation which makes great public health sense or they could choose to cause the least disruption to the hard life. People Are Living. Some advocate and aggressive push to flatten the curve. Reduce the spread but others disagree. I'm not sure flattening. The curve is in the best interest of society. Because what you have is your prolonging the timeframe of the epidemic and you're prolonging potentially the economic consequences but if you do nothing the infection will certainly spread and there are few resources to care for those with serious illness in Malawi. Were only eleven hospital beds for every ten thousand people but I think the closure of businesses and the disruption of livelihood is likely not going to house a positive effect in terms of lives saved and it is going to have a negative effect economically mentally and in terms of lives lost to non corona deaths so during times of pandemics the choices facing world leaders are difficult and many will choose to follow a different direction based on what is best for their country their economy and their culture.

Dozens of migrants die in shipping container on truck in Mozambique

"Well in Mozambique on Tuesday fourteen deeply. Traumatized male migrants were rescued from a sealed shipping container on a lorry bound for South Africa. According to the International Organization for Migration Sixty four other men on the truck died from US. Fixation an interview with you and uses. Daniel Johnson. Iom's Sondra Black explains where the migrants came from and what the agencies doing to raise awareness about the dangers of such journeys lever the tragic news yesterday morning that the bodies of sixty four migrants were found in the back of a truck that had come from Malawi. The survivors reported that they were from Ethiopia and that they're on their way to South Africa in search of better opportunities for their own lives. Iowa most is in close contact with the National Migration Service of Mozambique in order to provide immediate assistance for the survivors. Do you know how they found the truck required to pull over at a checkpoint and police spoke with the driver asked him the contents of the vehicle where Austin to open the back of the truck and very sadly those bodies where found but we were glad. At least there's fourteen survivors. Thank goodness there. Were some survivors. It really does sound horrific. Do you have any more details? About where the migrants came from a- they all men are there any women and children. All of the migrants are men. No minors no. When we realized that these men were travelling from Malawi. And they're coming from Ethiopia with the goal of reaching South Africa. We have seen similar incidents in the past car accidents of migrants who are coming from Horn of Africa who are attempting to travel to South Africa in search of education and economic opportunity of course traveling down through Mozambique Malawi areas. That were really really hit by two massive tropical storms Kennedy. What's the situation for migrants? I mean it's tough enough for many in. Mozambique so are they not aware that conditions are absolutely dire for many in Mozambique on their way through to South Africa. Mozambique is along this southern Africa routes where we see migrants coming from eastern Africa traveling down to South Africa but we still in Mozambique have over one hundred thousand people in resettlement sites. The country is still recovering from SCICLUNA die and cyclone. That happened one year ago. We realized that these migrants are looking for educational and Economic Opportunities. Some of them are fleeing violence so they may feel themselves to be in desperate situations. I'm would've you manage to find out from these migrants not necessarily those rescued from the latest. Laurie tragedy. What does it they tell you? What are they looking for? Exactly the situation that some of these migrants are fleeing is fleeing hardship in their countries fleeing poverty. There may be fleeing islands. They may not have the opportunities that they need in order to find employment to support their families so that they feel that migration is an opportunity to improve their circumstance so they choose to leave their homes many in this region we see them travelling to South Africa. So what's the IOM's daily work if you like? What's your objective? Both in preventing people from risking their lives in really dangerous journeys down from the east of Africa to the south. And how do you maybe get some people home repatriate them? That's one of the International Organisation of Migration Semaine functions to isn't it? I O N Mozambique in cooperation with other missions. The South Africa where involved in information-sharing we want migrants to realize the dangers of these irregular migration journeys. We also have a project. In order to voluntarily return migrants to their home countries. We have returned over several hundred migrants. Who WENT TO SOUTH AFRICA? Who did not find the opportunities that they were looking for and wanted to voluntarily return to their home country so just from from Mozambique. We've returned over three hundred migrants Mozambican migrants in the past few years from South Africa and finally in terms of covert nineteen preparedness. What can you tell us about the state of play in? Mozambique the moment many cases of infection there are a few cases of coveted nineteen in Mozambique. This question is best placed for the World Health Organization but all UN agencies are in support of the government of Mozambique the Ministry of Health and the World Health Organization to respond to this

"The Australian farmers may have receded but coronavirus has surged yet again just like we feared it might when we talked about the rise in global cases last week it's on all continents except Antarctica which hardly counts but still Africa is being only touched slightly but that he's with the world health experts fear the impacts could be the greatest if the virus does take hold because of the many health challenges already facing the continent Saudi organ solo helped establish a pan African infection prevention network after the ibotta outbreaks of twenty fourteen and fifteen and she's a professor of clinical microbiology at the university of lake house since a bola all the twenty nine Lavery trees across the country have the capability this last case we tested the two this was done at my university the it's been a lot of training in terms of collecting samples we've done that with a single patient we have a word presently monitoring the suspect and the contact over the station you mentioned V. po la not forgotten until I read your article the a bona had reached Nigeria nexus because you were able to handle it quite quickly which must be encouraging to you the fear of the boiler allowed us to do a lot of things in a way it also helped us to evaluate the structures we had in place which had not been tested but these structures are not evenly spread out across the country one of the reasons we were successful was because he came to legal state our legal state hi good public health infrastructure and so it was not difficult to scale all and at that time the other thing that happened was that we were able to come together so you had public sector private sector everybody works together all from different political parties with their parties aside the people in the U. epidemiologist posing with incumbent in the university is works together so there were a lot of feet on the ground and I was part of this response and it was I mean it was quite heavy for us to wake up in the morning you go to the emergency operations center which we have around the country's now and have all been activated because of this virus present we've had the NCDC that's the Nigeria centre for disease control has been empowered how does this work has been in the tracking of Lassa fever right now I agree to warranty is Lassa fever we having an epidemic of last a few which is more deadly than the coronavirus for us the death rates are worse and so when running actually at this present time working on Twitter that makes at the same time when I listen to the World Health Organization press conferences that comes across to me as one of that worries that it's the additional strain that may be put on Africans health services as opposed to the just the coronavirus the fact that there are other issues and the sort of the strength in depth of some services may be tested we will be tested definitely some countries for short like South Africa will be quite ready and have a lot more systems in place I'm some countries of war and I suspect some of the west African country is a work ID hit by a bullet this is how we can healthcare systems so they're less prepared we trained people from Ethiopia Namibia Malawi I think the G. five countries and we're going to go up on next week to train another twenty three countries so how ready every countries I can't tell you show a lot of countries are still young in the area of preparedness and notes are not as strong and as

Nine tiffany. Nine minutes to eighteen years old now college studying. Deco sayin. I'm a Tiffany Kaponda two years ago when she was in high school in Malawi, Tiffany was attending one of the best high schools in Malawi boarding school where I also met Joyce treselle who recited a poem for us that many of you might remember Joyce also came to the United States earlier this year and join me here on the set in New York. I saw Joyce again on my recent trip to Malawi during thanksgiving week. Joyce is still doing very well in high school, thanks to the scholarship that you have helped provide with your generous contributions to the kind fund the partnership that I created with MSNBC and UNICEF to provide desks to schools in Malawi and scholarships for girls to attend high school in Malawi were the girls graduation rate from high school is much lower than the boys for a variety of reasons. It is much more difficult for girls to get an education in Malawi. Then it is for boys. And that's why we help girls Tiffany Kaponda was one of the girls who was able to stay in highschool. Thank. To a scholarship that your contributions provided Tiffany is the first of our scholarship girls who you are meeting in college Tiffany is living the dream the dream that we had for girls like her when we started the scholarship program. She's made it all the way to college Tiffany almost had to drop out of high school because she couldn't pay her school fees. Tiffany's mother died when she was a little girl. So she was brought up by her grandmother rose defender who worried about what was going to happen to Tiffany when they couldn't pay for her high school. I will. She says that she was told by Tiffany that she she's going to come back. She's going to come back because she had no side of an NBA set waiting for her to come back. A few days later, she called and said, no, I'm not coming home. My school has been taken care of this quote question. She says she didn't even know who the person was who was paying fees. How it happened? You were paying her fees, and you can help more girls like Tiffany.

"This is the photograph that most Americans woke up to this morning on the front page of their newspapers. It went viral online yesterday and was captured by the governor elect of California Gavin Newsom on Twitter this way, quote, these children are barefoot in diapers. Choking on tear gas. Nothing can make a person especially a child less threatening to us than being barefoot. In a country where everyone has shoes and most of us have more shoes than we need. Nothing. Conveys vulnerability more than being barefoot a barefoot child. That's why it's the first thing. But Gavin Newsom noted about that photograph, but there are hundreds of millions of people in the world who are barefoot every day who don't own shoes. Her name is on. She's in sixth grade at a school in Malawi were most of the kids don't have shoes. And when you spend time in a country with millions of people who don't own shoes as I did last week in Malawi. You don't see vulnerability? You see something different. You see strength rainy season hit Malawi on Friday. But that didn't stop this woman from doing what she does every day carrying ten feet of firewood on her head for five miles barefoot. You see women like her every day in Malawi, and they are the personification of strength and determination and grace. The rain didn't slow these kids down on Friday and Malawi. They're not worried about not having shoes I've seen kids like them who have shoes actually take their shoes off on the soccer field because they can run faster they prefer actually playing barefoot in most of the schools. I visit most of the kids don't have shoes. Here's how one classroom at a primary school began their day on Thanksgiving Day last week sitting on the floor. And here's that same classroom an hour later after we delivered desks that you have provided to these kids through your contributions to the kind fund kids in need of desks like most primary schools I've seen him allow this one is very overcrowded and doesn't have enough classrooms for all the students. So some classes take place outdoors. This boy has the best seat in his outdoor classroom. And when I asked him how it feels not to have shoes like most kids in Malawi. He didn't really understand what I was asking about it seems he doesn't even think about shoes. What he does want to do is sit at one of those new desks that he saw that arrived at his school on Thursday. And he will get to do that. When he moves into one of the indoor classrooms next year. You can continue to help us produce desks at factories in Malawi with workers in Malawi and deliver them to schools where the kids have never seen..

"You would like to have that my first one but my my second point is is important because we had this conversation with a very useful composition made its way into the book into a long section which i called addition was the subtraction and you're absolutely right the standard embryo selection technology are subtracted malawi's right they take away information and you can do a lot with the faction you can take away intermission to move the recco one gene from your lineage you can remove the cystic fibrosis gene or the the varying from your lineage the varying that causes the disease at separate cetera gene editing is a different technology because it not only allows you to subtracting lousy to add information to the genome and i agreed with you and we were having dinner wherever it was deli in daly city or something i don't remember but but then i went on the plane and i down on the plane and i said wait a second but what if one thing that embryo selection does not allow you to do just because of mathematics them just going to walk through the example is that many human features many human common features normal futures are certainly disease features involved multiple genes multiplegene valiant so the problem with with embryo selection is that you can only produce so many and if you don't have the magic combination what do you do you make more and try to get you know get to the magic combination maybe the mathematics the petitions is against you with with with with deliberate genetic technologies liging editing and we'll come to other one synthetic technologies you could make cereal changes in cells that make egg and sperm until you got to that magic place now you've i think that that's absurd at or too far it but the but it seems to me that the technological pieces are there were we found that let's scientists nature proposing use for those parts of a fina type what a person behaves like where it depends on multiple genes now the embryo selection method is finely tuned for being able to deter with the one gene gene which has been identified as responsible for the disease is present in the after cell or not that simple if you.
