"One day they happen to leave a memo detailing their exact plan have me removed they left it on a copy machine and a staff member brought it to my deputy secretary of brought it to me where clearly outlined in writing these political point he's were planning to have me removed my deputy secretary remove my chief-of-staff removed by acting undersecretary removed and replaced them with people that they were more ideologically aligned with their with their views of where the Va should go and so at that point then I just couldn't ignore it and it was really that type of hard evidence and then you learned that you actually fired by tweet and that has happened quite quite quite a few times a Secretary David Schulkin thank you very much indeed for joining us as you say it shouldn't be this hard to serve your country thank you indeed now discontent isn't just for government insiders it is rising from the street all around the world political protests in Hong Kong pocketbook demonstrations from Lebanon to Chile citizens in in poor nations of voicing their dissatisfaction and in Beirut this afternoon Prime Minister Saad Hariri has become the first to fall on his sword announcing his Zig Nation after nearly two weeks of grassroots anger the protests were I triggered by a proposed tax on WHATSAPP calls today there was some violent conference stations with Lebanese security forces such as the one you're seeing here an incredible thirty seven percent of Lebanese under the age of thirty five unemployed and the UN says the poverty rate has risen by two thirds since two thousand eleven now Mona for was is a professor at the American University via Beirut and she's been heavily involved in organizing the protests and working on a set of goals she joins me from Beirut where demonstrations are still going on it's pretty loud there at this hour Mona was thank you very much for being with us thank you for having me so let me just ask you from the ginning we've seen the prime minister listened to what the street has said and here's offered his resignation but what does that mean a what happens next will be a caretaker government the president is still in place what happens next I think in order to understand the significance of today's resignation and notice I'm having a hard time hearing you you have to hear the celebrations that are happening on this street and to really locate them in their content rex what people are celebrating today is not necessarily the resignation as much as fifty opportunity that the country has to set itself on the new course what's different from the financial crisis from the poverty the environmental deterioration and because we've been living in the last thirty years so there was a moment in which the protests that started that were sparked really by an unjust tax tuned into a massive protests that went way beyond the usual size also way beyond the usual locations in which the protests were happening and by Reuters that candidate where some two million people who are on the street across all the nation and they were I really demanding more justice and the life and dignity but then when they saw themselves altogether and conversations began to open and people notice that what was keeping them so divided was this kind of government through which they were with him it was a mode of government that has been in place end of government a different mode of governance away in which we can really begin to build a true form of citizenship that can take the country drive the country out of the financial crisis the poverty and give us an opportunity to live with dignity this is really what it's about so motive for was dignity is very important dan this is very important the desire for a non-corrupt stage is very important but one of the standout issues for your country is the second -Tarian Ism and that has been the sort of day facto reality in the post civil war world how does the future look if these very key offices have to be shared out amongst different faiths the Sunni Muslims the Shiite uh-huh the drums look I mean if you hear the sun's done they're what they're actually saying is that finally we are liberated from the division I'm not being delusional and imagining that sectarianism disappear overnight but what I'm noticing is that over last years we're seeing movement after the other people increasingly taking stance against Victorian this and people increasingly feeling that the way in which there is into sex and religious groups is basically undermining the possibility of building a nation and this is what we've been hearing in the streets for the last in two weeks excuse me so in if you look at the teachers organizing if you look at the debates that are happening on this you hear a lot of people from all walks of life coming and then converging on this idea that yes with been ingrained in so much corruption and spread options media protected by Victorian regime and we want to imagine a different possibility and it's becoming more and more the song of the streets so really the hope is to see the response coming from the current leadership in the appointment of an independent government that's far from this aquarian divides and I truly drive the country through the moment of financial crisis that we're living a motor as you know the group Hezbollah which the whole world knows about because of its a reactions with Israel because of what it's been doing on behalf of Iran and Syrian President Bashar Assad in Syria Hezbollah has been also talking about this and actually the leader Hassan Nasrallah has made some fairly unsubtle threats can we just play what you said recently about these demonstrations and then ask you about it a lot l. many will have decided in view of the difficult monetary economic living situation in view of the political tensions locally and in the region in the shadow of what could be a target internationally and regionally vacuum will lead to vacuum will lead to collapse that would lead to civil war Mona he's raising the possibility of civil war again and the melting some kind of leadership in last week has been one of threatening got Kim but our situation that mechanisms actually protect us from back in the caretaker government and if there's a true political will to set in place an independent government the constitution completely allows so there's no need for I really wanted to go back and focus on how organic decentralized repeal the movement has been it's been in all cities it's been enough every the Little town spontaneous debate sessions coming up in public spaces people rediscovering the possibility of collective and I think the consistory and I really hope it's not going to

Colombia's Uneasy Peace
"The columbia peace deal of two thousand sixteen looked at the time like an unalloyed good news story. It ended more than half a century of civil war for which had left than two hundred sixty thousand people dead and millions more wounded displaced or terrorized. It won a nobel peace. Prize is four columbia's president of the time on manuel santos. Columbia's piece was not perfect indeed the first deal between colombia's government and the colombian rebel group faulk was rejected by colombia's people at a referendum but no peace every is perfect peace requires compromise forgiveness us and patients commodities often in short supply in places recently at war this week. We were reminded of how fragile colombia's peace is. Two former farc commanders announced that they were taking up again was vastly more difficult to stop than start. Every lesson zain about peacemaking has been learned the hard way but in columbia and elsewhere. What do we know about what works and what doesn't if peace is is obviously preferable to war. Why do peace processes so often fail or falter. This is the foreign desk very very few few people people voted voted attended attended for for as as far far as as a a political political party party they'd they'd been been waging waging war war against against the the colombian colombian state state for for fifty fifty years years and and many many colombian cedefop walk as simply narcotraffickers and they couldn't terrorists so they don't have popular support among those colombians rent. A conflict is in in the public attention. That'd be more support when it isn't. There'll be a few international agencies. I'll be a lot of locals still pursuing the goal of peace against strong forces that are reluctant to give up weapons because they're reluctant to give up their power and they're fearful of what it means to give up their how they wear a lot of immediate causative effects less violence more investment stock market than escrow went through the roof and lots more palestinians could cross the border and work in israel but the the enemies of peace force became much stronger than the end. They won the astro. A court was too vulnerable given the counterforces <music>. You're listening to the foreign desk with me andrew muller well. Let's start in columbia and i'm joined from there by monaco's qatar correspondent anastazia maloney anastazia these two former faulk commanders who now proposed to become once again farc commanders hastened sandwich entre yvonne marquez how significant ave as as figures within the movement. They're really significant figures particularly by marcus who go that's his wartime alias. He really was the key negotiator in cuba for several years where he negotiated worth the colombian government government the terms of the peace deal and he appeared on t._v. For years in civilian clothes saint colombians. We've reached us peace a cold world. We are betting on peace so for many people he was the face off peace accords so the fact that he goes on video last week and says i'm. I'm calling on followers to take arms again. It's real bitter blow. <hes> for the peace process will come back to the question of his followers presently presently but first of all his motivations when he says he's returning to war against whom and why so he said that he was disheartened with the peace deal he believes that the government has betrayed the peace deal that is being far too slow to implement the terms the peace accord and he points to the fact that there is no security ford mobilized fighters which the government had promised so he says that demobilize fighters who gave up their weapons were willing to support the peace deal he says about one hundred and fifty people have been killed so far and he said that the government promised to guarantee them securities. That's one of the games that he feels hasn't been addressed by the government. He's also also saying that. He doesn't believe that the government is really committed to this peace accord and those are the main reasons why is decided to go back to to the struggle way scoring a second phase or the armed struggle when he talks about it being a second phase he has also made some reference to this sort of of clandestine political movement that he and his his sandwich claim to be launching as he spelled out what he's ultimate aim actually is does he basically basically just want to resurrect the farc of the half century long civil war recently ended or is he thinking of this as some entirely new apparatus autos and it's really not sure and he wasn't clear in in the statements that he made on the video about his real intentions and how it's going to pan out but what what is clear is that he does have followers there are people who never gave up their weapons and join the peace process and there's about two thousand dissidents as they're known <hes> so when he talks about his followers he's really talking to those dissidents to join in him and as far as who he's fighting. He said that he will be on the offensive and that means that any attacks carried out by state station security forces state military he will respond. It's perhaps not that surprising given how recently columbia's war theoretically ended that somebody with the cachet of his contract and yvonne marquez might be able to find two thousand armed malcontents contents willing to follow them once again but beyond that do they have any actual popular support among the colombian people if they do resurrect a campaign donovan violence anything like what farc wants wrought across the country. Will they have any sympathy at all. Hardly have any sympathy a tool ooh and in fact in the last elections when the far became a political party as a result of the peace accord they did really really badly very few the people voted for the as a political party and their ideology so they'd been waging war against the state for fifty fifty years and many colombians see the farc as simply narcotraffickers and they call terrorists nocco terrorists so they do not have half of popular support among most colombians and support you remember in fact public referendum that asks whether or not the favor of the pizza called it was not passed by half of the voters so the peace accord started off being a very unpopular simply because many colombians don't trust in the fall from their intentions and the fact that even marcus comes video dressed in only the teak surrounded by many guns just basically feeds into the fee he is a skepticism about seventy communes had this peace process of the very beginning so he's that perhaps it right there that the real reason why this faction of faulk faulk at least is contemplating a return to violence is acknowledged -ment on their part really. That's all they've got. I think what they're saying to the dissidents and what they think are their supporters is that we are with you and we are. We are still going to fight for what we believe in and they thought they could do that without arms are now. They going to have to go back to ours because as far as they're concerned they're faithful to the the peace accord so they want to see what they have signed. I should be put into practice and they're saying that we are trying to not going to sit idly and just watch the government do nothing and that's why they are taking up their own again
"manuel santos" Discussed on The Sicario Effect
"The following is a conversation that we recorded on December fourteenth two thousand seventeen in the room was my producer. Caitlyn tearful Ernie her Tato and sound engineer and editor will Broten the three of us basically at that point. We're still trying to figure out Popeye there's a lot going on. And I thought it would be interesting to share this conversation with you. As part of our Minneapolis owed today to give you an idea of where our heads were at as right in the moment when things were happening with Popeye in the news after being discovered at the party with alias, Tom. I'm just looking at this thing this is yet from yesterday, and it says here, so this is. From one of these Colombian news channels. So the president Juan Manuel Santos made a comment reporters yesterday that Popeye should return to jail. This is crazy. I am just I think he's I mean like this. I mean like the president's commenting on it. Well, then the. Essentially prosecutor's office also say, you know, well, the prosecutor's office did, but I mean like when does the president of a country comment on the status of criminal? I mean that and the prosecutor's offices letter, do you think he's actually gonna go back in jail. Yeah. It doesn't have enough to just to me take it seems like he's getting back. I mean, does it seem to you guys? Thanks. So we'll because first of all if I mean, look, obviously, Columbia's not the US. But if you have a guy who was released, you know, unconditionally or conditionally rather Scooby and he's out now. And then he's I mean, he's was with the most wanted man in the country. This to me seems like a really big development that the president of the country is saying that Popeye needs should go back to jail. Yeah. And it also seems like maybe since he's been out of jail. He's been causing a lot of like just pushing wrong buns laughable. Yeah. He's really. But you know, what set me after we did there are interview with him. He said like he just kind of looked at me and he's not going back. And I, but you know, again, I mean this was before the president made a comment. So I don't maybe I'm just like to me like, I just can't believe it like, I think he's I don't know. There's a lot here. This indicated he's getting back to jail, you presidents usually get involved with such like, we'll matters. Yeah. Exactly. That's the teams what? Really like, it's like, why are you invested in something seems this small on the scale of like your president but country, right? It's pretty ally. Wait to that statement. Just when I when I look at these articles. Yeah, he said here Popeye must return to prison. Most people feel that way. Yeah. I mean, even did that the Twitter poll. And. When against his. I do well for him yet. So weird thing. I mean, here's another article. I mean, it's there's like twelve articles here about the president making this comment. So I don't know. I just I never thought we would be here right now. But the last thing, you know, when when when when we were sitting there in many, even and he said to me, you know, I mean, if you if you heard I think you've listened to the whole thing at the end he's talking about his son and everything and how he wants a better life for him in this. And he's he's in. It's like to like a week later. You know, it's crazy. I mean, just just weeks later here, we are like in you know, like again, I know it's what how it looks on the surface. But I mean, he's hanging out with very very wanted people. These are all people that are part of the law office in the NBA got in. And so, you know, if just for a second, though, like, you know, if you have people that you knew from when you're doing really bad things criminal, and you know, like, I think there's some kind of code where you're not necessarily just going to be like a race them from your mind. Now commonsense would say not to go hang out with him again. But I get the whole like I mean, there's nothing illegal about what you did being at the same time..
