Many Tigray refugees entering Sudan with nothing but their clothes: UNHCR
"Nearly sixty thousand people. From ethiopia's volatile tigray region have now crossed the border to remote southeastern sudan optimal than two months of fighting many with just the clothes on their backs. The emergency has created a massive protection challenge for the un refugee agency in sudan. Unhcr which is doing everything. It can't provide what they need as spokesperson. Xl bishop tells us news is daniel johnson. I've just been on a mission to the east. Where i have looked at the response in relation to the refugee influx from ideo. Peel right. so we're going to talk about the refugee influx which comes after two and a half months of fighting water. The numbers now that you're seeing seeking shelter over the border of sudan from ethiopia's northern region of tigray so we have about fifty eight thousand at europeans. Which are actually entered into saddam at the moment the influx is between two to five hundred people daily coming across the border. They're coming in through to border areas Diet and lewke that number coming over two to five hundred a day. That's a lot less than it was but you suggesting that perhaps people are just too far away from the border to get to safety across the border now yes the first influx which resources came from the villages on the western side of tigray at the moment the people which we are seeing of people who have walked for some time what we see is that maybe we have an indication that the western side of being emptied and the people seeking shelter not come from further away. What are they telling you what are their needs. So i mean. Most of the people have Actually entered sudan without anything so they come with their clothes but many many few coming with no possessions at what we hear is that many come without documentation which is also something which we are trying to address the first influx came in relation to direct fighting the influx which we have now. The people are telling us that it's more in relation to the fact that they don't feel safe in tigray not so much because of the fighting because they are from the gray area. So do you have an idea. About what the level of fighting is in tigray today. What is your access you know we are working on the sudan side and our office in addis. Ababa is actually trying to gain access now. What we are doing is trying to relocate them. From the border areas further inland. We have two camps at the moment which are some distance from the border where border conflict should not be a problem. Okay but i'm just concerned that there's no access to hundreds of thousands potentially of people on the other side of the border of sudan with. He need essential food. Water and other services reported rising malnutrition from the office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs and they cited bureaucratic obstacles in in getting access to people who need it so. What's the latest you have on tensely getting help to these people in need as we are sitting here on the sudan side we are focusing on the influx which has come across the border from at the opium and we also have offices in the opium which are dealing with the people who have moved inside the tigray area but also inside at your more at large. So let's talk about two and a half months into this conflict. In the northern region of tigrayan ethiopia. You're trying to relocate tens of thousands potentially of refugees because you've got camps further inland in sudan. Could you may be explain what the difficulties are first of all. It's always a challenge to actually find. Land land something which is owned here by individuals but also by government and we have been working together with the government of sudan. We go a piece of land which is old campsite which is called ambre kuba what we have placed about twenty thousand refugees at the moment here. We have within. I would say short span in able to at least all stem in attempts but also ensure water health and food the second site which we have because kuba has been saturated is tenable. it's further way than kouba and it takes about twelve to fourteen sometimes. Sixteen hours to actually have the buses leaving the border area arriving at the campsite. Which therefore makes it arrivals in the middle of the night now. The campsite is located in a very remote area where we don't have any electricity and we are concerned that actually offloading these amounts of people in the middle of the night with no lights is something of a concern to us. We are trying to do this now. In such a way that we have larger area rub whole set up where we host people until we have the song light out again and then we give them the tents which have been set up for them. Sure and final. Question to you mr bishop. We are two and a half months into this conflict refugees telling you that. They are hopeful. Being able to return amid this fighting between two grants and the marines in the northern region of ethiopia. Refugees are still hopeful. But i think that what we see Is that people are here for longer term and why we have had some people expressing hopes to return they would like to return to the tigray. Which was there some three months ago not to the new situation which stay. I've heard the bald.

What Is Populism?
"For years now. Populists have been popping up all over the globe from india and europe to the philippines in south america and of course into the united states politicians with populist leanings. And those who have gone full-fledged populist in their quest for power have been making a lot of noise and a good deal of trouble think marine le pen in france. Victor bon in hungary rodriguez do taste in the philippines. Former venezuelan president who chavez india's prime minister narendra modi end yes by many people's definition donald trump and the united states. But what is a populist. What is populism answering. That is notoriously difficult. A part of the difficulty arises from the fact that populists can come from all parts of the political spectrum. there are leftist populists around the world who combine various forms of socialism with their populist message. There are those on the right who push anti immigration and anti lgbtq plus platforms in their populism populism in general refers to a to ordinary people as a political ideology or approach it involves emphasizing. The wants needs voices and good qualities of the common people and it usually does so by contrasting this idea of the good common people with the bad elite working against them. Best case scenario a populist leader would be honestly looking at the issues that ordinary people face and helping create solutions for them bus making the will of the people law and that is what populist leaders tend to promise unfortunately what tends to happen and what political scientists have observed in the aforementioned places is these populist leaders bending the definitions of both the common people and the elite in order to gain power with an democratic system and then undermining the very fabric of that democracy in order to stay in power de emphasizing some of the crucial parts of the democratic process such as the articulation of varied interests and the thoughtful mediation of those interests it can be incredibly effective for the leader and incredibly damaging for the democracy that they're distorting and anyone who lives within that democracy who isn't in the group that the leader has defined as the common people so worst case scenario populism redefines the common people as a group with narrow interests and then insists only there will matters a we spoke with political scientists on a malla busa a professor at stanford university and the director of the school's global populisms project which published a white paper in march of twenty twenty called global populisms and their challenges addresses the threats of populism and identifies several possible solutions. According to the paper populism is growing across the globe because of the failure of major political parties to address the thorny issue that ordinary people face. today's world immigration economic inequality and globalism. Just to name a few. This gives populist leaders a sort of foot in the door to claim that not only. The elite members of those political parties are bad but that the whole system is bad. Populist leaders climb to prominence by dividing society splitting it into two not just separate but opposing factions the people and and the elite a university of georgia political scientist by of cast mood explained it this way in an article for vice quote. The key distinction between the people and the elite is not based on class. Our power but on morality is always the pure against the corrupt but again the people is often an exclusive group a to quote the stanford paper populists redefine the people often by excluding vulnerable ethnic or religious minorities immigrants and marginalized economic groups. The result is majority rule without minority rights. Once in power populist leaders attack not only the rights of individuals who don't fit into the defined majority but the very foundations on which the country lies that includes the paper's authors wrote quote the takeover and taming of courts and oversight institutions and new laws that limit the freedom of the media and civil society. We've seen this in the united states with trump calling the press the enemy of the people criticizing judges resisting congressional oversight claiming that elections are rigged flouting laws and claiming that a deep state of bureaucratic actors is out to get him to deny the will of the people he represents. It happens with other populist leaders all over the world schmila busa explained the mindset saying the position is the of the people. Why would you listen to them. The media is the swamp. Why would you listen to them. Everything is fake everything is suspect and no one is to be trusted except the populace end that populous remember does not include voices of the populations minorities or anyone who disagrees. With the labeled majority. Leader's malibu said this is not about making poor people wealthy. This is not about punishing me lead in redistributing wealth. There's almost nothing in the populist program that actually makes every day people's lives better populists don't do that. They simply don't. It's not the people who have suffered the most who support populist parties. It's really sort of the people who fear dropping further down inside of prestige and economic status. Populist leaders often don't spring from the working class roots of what's thought of as being the people though considered trump is a self professed billionaire real estate investor. Brazilian president shire dinar is a longtime congressman and military leader. Francis lapenne is the daughter of a career right wing politician. The philippines to therapy spent decades as mayor and lawyer and india's muddy came from humble beginnings. But he's been in politics more than forty years.

I gotta the ring court right at ten years. I got the airlines. But what are the an. I ten years reserves and the guard. But i always regretted not taking. I always want to know what it'd be like. Take command so this is going to be a fun conversation. I am interested from your aspect of it. I was joking when i got on the call with. You don't look old enough to take command. But i forget how my squadron commander was like in the late thirties. Fifty two now.

I've listened to your show for for a long time. Several years. And i gotta i gotta admit i'm pretty humbled to have looked at the lineup of people you've got on your show and the quality conversations you've had into now get to be a part of. Its thank you well new and i have a history to because i don't how many years ago wasn't you reached out to me. I mean in karachi. That's probably two thousand and fifteen. Or so i had just selected been selected for command was kinda starting to do a little bit of thinking about Some this bigger picture leadership stuff and i came across your podcast. And i said hey. I think i'd like to talk to this guy. And your gracious enough with your time and I remain grateful for that. Yeah and you reached out in an i. Don't remember what advice gave you. Hopefully it was.

I thought well this might be good to have you on the show because it gives an insight to leadership that i think a lot of people usually don't get the inside baseball on right and i'm curious to because it's something that i've never experienced. It's something that i always wish. I wonder how i would do. But you had a unique experience. Let just for the sake of our listeners. Your naval aviator right. You eventually started flu wing. How long have a perspective here. What year was that yes. We'll jump in the way back machine. A graduated from the university of florida in may of two thousand I immediately went up. To pensacola started flight. School you're familiar with this track You made my way through Through flight school and then ended up finishing in may of two thousand. Two's almost exactly two years of flight school which is relatively quick Yeah i had a lot of A lot of wait times like six Wait six months. then i'd start a phase. Wait six started phase so it took me a while. Yeah i was really grateful to be able to go through that quickly to i think And your instructor. If i recall correctly i mean one of the things. That's so important. When you're learning a new skill or a trade or a job or task is just repetition over and over and as you work towards those ten thousand hours right and You know being able to go through flight school. That quickly meant that. I was flying almost every day. I was in a simulator almost every day. Sometimes twice a day and You know being a middle of the bell curve kind of blue collar pilot. Like i'm in a career of repetition important so yeah long. Answer your question but i got winged in two thousand and two. Okay good yeah so that you're about eleven years ahead head me or eight years. I got winged and yeah ten years ahead of me winged in. I wanna keep doing this math. I'm like my head's about to explode anyway. I'm old you're not so that's the whole thing that it came up with so you get and you fly the ea six right. And so you're you're flying to that and eventually transition to the e. Eighteen growler super hornet and eventually took command right. And so. when did you so this is interesting. So when did is this your first command and when was this. When was your first command. Yeah so you know the navy. Does things a bit differently than Some of the other services particularly army and the marines where he will have a platoon commander for our company commander the navy Typically there are a few exceptions with some of the small ships but The navy typically reserves its first level of command at the level In the marine corps. In the army as lieutenant colonel battalion command in the navy at squadron command of a squadron commanded on the aircraft side or it could be on the ships a destroyer Nope yes this is. My perception commands I took command having been in the navy for. I think the eighteen year mark

He has a lot on his mind for weeks he's been mired in political scandal. That's rocked the reagan administration to its core. A scandal threatens to take down the president and everyone around it involves backroom deals shady arms dealers offshore bank accounts in the cayman islands and illegal covert operations. They're calling it. The iran contra affair bodies known for being tightly controlled even intense would all day long.

Deal was not a mistake. The attorney general said later former national security adviser mcfarlane had also been aware of the escape. A major turning point was a few weeks. Back during reagan's state of the union address but hasn't been able to get out of his mind. I took a risk with regard to our action in iran. It did not work. And for that i assume full responsibility the goals were worthy. We did not achieve what we wished and serious mistakes were made in trying to do some serious mistakes with buds.

"And I was lucky enough to become a board member. So really for me my personal experience. The morale, you know, I wanted to know what it was about because I've been involved smother organizations and some of them are incredible. And some of them are more involved in just kinda getting the boys together kind of drink beer, you know, hanging out. And and for me, my aspiration was always, hey, you know, our younger teammates. That are serving today because I'm retired. What can we do to help them? What can do to help their families, you know, marines, or you know, we have traumatically injured we have marines with your PTSD. We add marines have not mercy financial needs. You know? Of course, like every other community. We have debts. You know, if you parachute deaths in the last few years as an example, you know, those families, although there's a support structure within the department of fence, and within the Marine Corps, you know, those their needs or not always dressed or sometimes it's a recent separated veteran that no longer has those support elements 'cause he's no longer attached to the the Greek, you know, and and as transitioning from military coup civilian, so when I started to understand what the foundation has done. You know, I was like, wow, I wanna be a part of that. Now, I'll be honest with you, this just peps opinion again going back to the tenant of Saudi professional. I felt like wait. Why don't I know about all this great stuff that the are doing? I should know it misses by community. I should know. That you know, Breen that was, you know, killed a parachute accident we help family by doing this. You know, traumatically what it really helped him with ex marines house got flooded on his severely damaged you worked with organizations to get people out. There is gut the house. Why did I know about? So for me, one of the tenets that I put forth the board was saying we need to tell the store because young recon marines need to know that there is an organization like the marine reconnaissance foundation. That's there to support them their families. So you know, that's kind of a nutshell what you're going to does. It's all volunteers. It's a it's a few active duty marines. It's mostly retired senior enlisted. Although we do have a few commission officers some of them that are still do. Eighty against silent professionals. You know, this is this is uncompensated job. I will tell you for me personally. I mean, I'm I'm at work twelve hours a day, I'm suppose seven days a week depends on what's going on in the world for my civilian job. So being on the board is really a second job. I mean, I could easily say any day I put in between two and five hours, you know, work in sport foundation. But, you know, the key point here's all of us volunteers, all of us is board members believe in the mission, we believe in in the reconnaissance community, and I'll tell you I get to interact some of the young Rekondo's today, and they're awesome. You know, they are I'm really impressive. What our marines and special fish recons corner during the day. And so that reenergize me like ain't that I need to stay in the fight..

"Do you share with the public which parts or just for you guys, which is understandable? But at the same time, I really believe that some of these stories need to be shared, and we do need to pass them these things on. I'm working here. Another book that just landed in our office a life of blood and danger by Daniel hill. And this guy had way back. It looks like in the fifties and sixties he had quite a career. And this book is like probably five hundred pages. So I do thank you for coming on here and educating us a little bit. And I guess that would be my next question. Then is could you tell us a little bit about what our recon marine does and getting also to the differences between recon enforce recon. Because I think some of our listeners will be really interested in that. Okay. Well, I if I could go back to the the on the radio station. So I wanna be clear, you know, the purpose today for for been coming on. And guy is really in the end of this is to talk about the brain reconnaissance foundation, and what we're doing for our community. Whether it's traumatically injured, whether it is gold star families or whether it's the active duty riccar breed or Sark special tips causes Cormon and their family today. So, you know, we have to make a decision of foundation that if if we're going to garner any support we have to tell some the story we have it. Right. There's there's no way without exposure. Are we going to be able to do things, and I know gets us a little later. But as example, you know, I think as are aware that were we are flying six gold star families out to Hawaii for an all expense p trip in you know, in less than a month. I mean, you know to make that all inclusive all expense paid, you know, on a thirty million dollar state with their own private chef and own private helicopters. And all the great things you wanna do that does not have unless we're talking about it. Right. And we're we're seeking support. So I'll stop there. I know I gotta get so back to your question about reconnaissance marine. So so I it's important understand that core. The United States Marine corps is the Marinko and the marine air ground task force that built or rammed, you know, that detain landing team and on up is really support, you know, whether we're talking about f three five fifth generation aircraft. Whether we're talking about attack, Cobra attack helicopters conscience. You know, we at the fundamental core of our doctrine the marina on task support. So that's that's an important note. So reconnaissance marines in the what was formed for to his division recon their role largely with the key support, the marine division against bring division infantry and their former individuals and their job with basic conduct ground finish reconnaissance in support that marine division. You know, isn't a landing is in an air assault is around clearing, etc. Back in the older days. The force reconnaissance company were kind of be mea the the more senior, folks. I mean back in the nineties if you were recon battalion marine and you wanted to go to say first force recon company, yaldo, your basically train riccar Spreen, you could be jumping dive ranger sear this the other. You would still have to take the the force reconnaissance in dock. So you'd take another selection move up to force your congress. The the great shaping at that time was more senior. So you would look at the vision recon, and Lance corporal, corporal sergeant and maybe a platoon sergeant staff sergeant April commander, probably as the first ten where force recon company, you know, took the more mature, experienced brains who had the excellent baseline, by the way. I gotta add that that came from recon battalion or some of the best, you know, special operators that have gone to national mission force at on all over the place. But in the ricotta me, that's kind of the way things or you know, you'd in'dock you've got company and at at in my time platoons were pre senior. When we were in Iraq. We add platoons that had, you know, a senior cabinet or junior major as a platoon commander..

"I Magnin bardy. We're talking this hour with miles Lagos -i, he's cinematographer director and producer of the new documentary combat obscure, he's a former Lance corporal in the Marine Corps. He spent eight months in Afghanistan's Helmand province as a Marine Corps combat photographer. He was assigned to the first battalion six marines that was in two thousand eleven and the footage that he brought back from Afghanistan is what makes up this new documentary, combat obscure miles. I wanna play another seen here from the movie. This one is just so revealing about the the truth and honesty that some of the marines look upon themselves, and you know, and their callings in the in the unit that you were filming. So in the scene, it's after dark and several marines are holed up in their blast shelter. And they're smoking local haschisch, which I imagine they could get in trouble for if found out, but one of the marine says, luckily, Afghanistan is a hash farm, and then looking pretty relaxed. He tells your fellow cameramen just in Loya what he's learned about the marines. Once he became one. You know? Inquiry ring was like which perfect people. Will do anything bad don't hers squirt away killers and recourse or the individual them ever met? Just me. A scene from combat obscure miles ki help us understand why this particular marine was was saying what he said. Well, I mean, I think. A lot of Americans have this perception of the military's like these these kids that just wanna go serve their country, and you know, fight for freedom and all that. But a lot of a lot of the time. It's kids we're looking to to kind of find themselves into they're looking for something that they haven't been able to find say like going to college or getting a job. And you know, there's a lot of kind of crazy kids in the Marine Corps. There's a lot of really rough guys that you know, some of them have criminal record. When we when we enlisted in two thousand eight most of the guys that are in the film that was Obama's troop surge. So they were they were pretty much taking anyone who is willing to go because they needed. They just needed bodies in Afghanistan. So you were getting a lot of a lot of wild guys that. You know, maybe wouldn't have found something else in another direction of life. But, but yeah, I think that that moment kind of pretty accurately sums up how a lot of actual marines feel about you know, the Marine Corps. There's quite a few scenes in the movie where they're they're smoking. That local has Sheesh. I mean, do you do you did you worry about when putting that out all out there that you know, people might be pretty critical of that? I mean, I kind of I think it's okay to be to be critical of it. I think surprisingly. You know, people put put war, and like the experience of war on Japan, a soul that you kind of get away with anything because you can say, well, they're they're in war and wars hell, and it makes you do crazy things. But you know, we want to kind of challenge that in show. You know, these these kids made the choice to enlist I made the choice to enlist, and it's okay to be critical of of some of the things that we were doing out there. But I think being honest is is the most important aspect. Now. This next question might sound like such a question from a civilian. But when I saw this I thought I I mean getting high in a in a war zone. We're clearly there so much danger. And you're in the right in the middle of it just didn't seem like very suspect. Ovais wise thing to do. But but I understand that at least one of your fellow marines said that that they decided to get high on purpose. There was actually an advantage to being somewhat paranoid after smoking..

And that's what I find interesting is what did they see in Missouri any warning signs? Yeah. Sure, they're going to the candidate. But kind of after the fact that's a great. They have to alert proper authorities. What they saw this ties in very nicely with the guys that go shoot up. Public venues, whether they be movie theaters or scratch airforce guy down the tree. Yeah. I mean, it's you know. Yeah. The the guy the guy that was in the air force. No sharing of information whatsoever. You know, so. To counter that you would you would think that they would they would be obligated to put this on public public file public record that you know, this guy shouldn't be allowed to buy a firearm. You know, he he's considered by our our agency to be a threat to the public. What you just give me? Interesting to see, you know, this guy had any psychiatric evaluations or anything else. Because I would very interesting. You and I both David. Thank you. Good. Good. Good point. Thank you, David. Let's go to collapse in Dayton. Hi colette. Hello. Hi. Enjoy your show. Hi, I just have a point to ponder. And that is that. He abducted Jamie on November towns Thursday. She was caught on January tenth another Thursday. Afternoon. I think he might have been out trolling for another victim. Yeah. Becoming parents leader. Loan for the weekend. And. Yeah. I mean, I I could be who knows who knows what? Yeah. Who knows better? I'm suspicious of that. And he wanted to pass along interesting. Thank you. Appreciate the call take care. Bye bye. Let's go to John in Richfield, John. Hey, Al how you doing doing? Well. Thank you. My question is I mean, I I really don't have any comment on him or her. I mean, I, you know, obviously grateful that she's then saved and and one thing that I haven't heard of it. I'm just curious about that. I I haven't heard anybody mention whether she had been raped or beaten or molested and then. Yeah. Haven't heard. Yeah. I think could be could be that the thirties are taking it slow. To let her get acclimated. Right. Then maybe sit down with her now, maybe the already have. And they're just not releasing it. We don't know. We don't. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, my main question is, and you know, I I listened to your show, and I respect what you do. And and, but when when is media too, much, you know, I I I hear journalists and reporters say that people have a right to know. And I sometimes I question that people want to know, I I'm all for, you know, reporting what's going on and make people aware, and it's it's grateful news to here. But where you know, my my concern is for Jamie and her privacy and Expos in a situation like this. It's it's extremely hard to for her to have privacy at this time. But where where do you consider too much media is going over the line? Well, right now, this is one of the big stories in the country. I mean, it's not just a mid west story. It's it's it's a national story. If you watch any of the TV networks or listen to any syndicated talk shows. Just about everybody is talking about it. Because first of all, you know, it's it's you know, I hate to say there's a happy ending because there certainly is not a happy ending. But the outcome is a heck of a lot better than anybody anticipated after three months. You know? So I think that people are pleased. In our business to to be able to report that, but people are curious, I you know, you've picked up the phone, John. So that means you're curious about where this is going to go from here. What happened today in the courtroom? People are following the story and people want to talk about it. Terminating factor. But but again that doesn't quite answer. My quite well, let me let me ask you this. Do you think there's a point where where media over does it? And I I'm talking everything as a whole. I mean, it it just dominates, you know. Every I don't know. Do you think there is a point where we're too much? Well, not at this point. No. The press. And and and the media as a whole will follow this through until he is tried and either convicted or acquitted whatever way it goes, it'll it'll be followed because because Jamie survived which is pretty remarkable. Right. We're the media goes too far. And it goes way back. Let's talk about. Dr Sheppard familiar with a TV series in the movie the fugitive. Yeah. I mean, it's before my time. But I never I'll give you a synopsis. Dr Sheppard was accused of killing his wife, and he said when he was arrested by detectives, he said, it was a guy with a prosthetic arm. I fought with him and he was brought to trial. In. I believe it was in Cleveland. And we're the media got to control was report reporters were taking pictures of of jury members of the jury panel, they were photographing them, the even published the names and addresses in the the the Plain Dealer of the name of the newspaper in Cleveland. I'm going to talk my hit or excuse me, if I'm miss. Stating that, but they they did that. I mean, they went crazy. It was it was a circus like atmosphere. I think that was the second time in a major case that that term was used. It was used in the Lindbergh kidnapping trial. And so, you know, you talk about a media that was out of control that was out of control today. I think where you're talking John is, you know. What what what point is enough is enough? No, I think enough is enough when news when people don't have questions, and they don't wanna talk about it anymore. The press on the other hand, you know, the media and the press two different animals. The press has an obligation being the fourth estate. They have an obligation to report on trials. So they will continue until that's over. And then maybe even do follow up stories on it. As far as doing talk show, you know as long as people are interested, and they wanna talk about it. We'll talk about it. Sure. I I understand what you're saying. I guess ultimately what.

"The marines. Hello, everyone and welcome back. If you're just joining us, I'm Amanda Cooper. And in the studio with me today, I have ceratin Tonci. She is the executive director for the southern center of human rights now before winter break, we were discussing how your organization advocates for the rights of prisoners while they're incarcerated does your organization also assist with the re entry program as well. We certainly believe that reentry and Georgia needs to continue to be developed. The reality is that ninety five percent of people incarcerated in our state will be coming home Monday. And so the question is what are we doing to help prepare people for that moment. And I believe that starts well before the the time that they're actually released and we need to make services available within the prisons to allow people to get an education to get job training until allow them to move on. You know, we like to think that a person's life is always worth more than their worst moment or their worst decision and frequently the people who are incarcerated in our country. Whether it's just regular prisoner jail or whether they're on death row. They are permanently defined by that one bad decision or that series of bad decisions. And no longer considered to be fathers brothers mothers sisters. We want to see a system that treats the person as the whole. Allows them to to grow and to come back to our community in a whole manner. What do you say to those who say they committed the crime? They do the time and whatever happens in there, they deserve it. Like you said because they may one batch. I know you get a lot of opposition. Yes. Well, so every day the things that the southern center for human rights season the courts, and on the streets show that the kind of Justice a person gets depends varies dramatically depending on the color of their skin and the amount of money that they have. So to just look at this and say justices Justice is just not it's just not accurate. Because the kind of Justice that a person gets very strategically based on who they are and their demographics. So we would say, and we believe this this concept of equal Justice is so important. I mean, these are the words that we have in grave on the front of our supreme court building, equal Justice under law. And this is a promise that we have not fulfilled as country. And so we try to make the case for aspiring to this. Beautiful tenant that is the foundation for our country that we must do better. Well, it's interesting that you say that because the next point of conversation is right to counsel. And this is probably the biggest one right now considering you just awarded the gideon's award gideon's promise, you'd get an promise award to the legal team for basil l'herbe. That's right. And he was by all means accused of probably the most nationally known crime that he did not commit that. He. He was poor. He was homeless. He was black and he was a drug addict. That's right. So talk a little bit more about how your stands for right for council really is affective and how it helped improve the life of one man, which is one band for many. That's right. You're absolutely right basil Alabi for a period of time was the most hated person in Atlanta. And there is no other time than in that moment of passion of hatred where the right to counsel is more important. And that is why we honored his defense team. Molly. Davis Tiffany Roberts. Lawrence Zimmerman, Gary Spencer and their investigators because they stepped up and represented mR as Alabi for free. They push back against a system that was ready to legally Lynch him, and they gave him the kind of zealous representation that a person of means would go out and pay for. And this is what equal Justice is about in our country every day, people are accused of crimes across our state, and the kind of Justice that they get often depends on what kind of lawyer that they have and in is simply not fair have one kind of Justice for people who can pay for a lawyer and another for those who can't. And so we have been. Working for decades to improve the system here in Georgia. And in fact, one of the first things I worked on when I came to the southern center in two thousand one was launching a campaign to create for the very first time, a statewide public defender system in our state, and I do believe we've come a long way, but we have a long way to go. And I bet people who are listening could tell all sorts of stories of things that they or their loved ones have experienced while dealing whip quarter pointed lawyers and Georgia. The next thing. I'd like to talk about is criminalization of poverty. What exactly does that mean? So the criminalization of poverty is when people who come into contact with the criminal legal system, come in contact only because of their income status. They come into contact because they can't afford to pay a traffic fine or they or because there are other fines and fees imposed by the court that for whatever reason they're unable to pay on that day. And so that could be money bail that could be a private probation fees. It could be any number of other kinds of fines and fees that we've seen throughout Georgia. But it's folks who have not committed any kind of real crime so to speak, but maybe just had a driving offence or misdemeanor, a very low Lynn low level misdemeanor or ordinance violation. But because they didn't have the money to purchase their release. They had to just sit there and jail. And that's something that we see a lot when it comes to bail. And that's why we lead the campaign along with our coalition partners to pass an ordinance right here in Atlanta. Thanks to the leadership of mayor key chalance bottoms to end a good portion of the use of money bail in Atlanta municipal court. We see this as great progress. And this is something that we want to take to other parts of our city and state. That's fantastic. And I remember when she announced that and it just it really did free. A lot of people who is a long time coming coming. And we were so moved that it was her first initiative as mayor that she prioritized this. It really showed me the kind of social Justice leader, she is going to be for our city. Well, our our last and final talking point is going to be about your public policy. Cannot give us a little over VS -actly what you offer in that aspect. We are a law office, and we let a gate, and we represent people, but we also see the incredible importance of engaging in public policy reform because through legislative change can actually transform entire systems rather than just helping one person or improving conditions in one prisoner jail. And so we have for over seventeen years now had a daily presence at the Georgia general assembly. And for the last eight years under the leadership of governor deal, we've gotten an incredible amount of criminal Justice reform measures passed governor deal, frankly in a surprising way, really became a champion of criminal Justice reform and over the last eight years we've passed sentencing reform reformed probation to the juvenile Justice system. And most recently some bail reforms there's still so much work to do. The criminal Justice system is the part of our community that has been least impacted by the advances of the civil rights movement. But we really see this kind of policy reform as the key to getting to where we wanna go why, you know, Sarah, I really enjoyed speaking with you today, we'll come into the end of our show, and I just wanna say I had an opportunity to his tenure two thousand eighteen awards gala, and it was very inspiring. And it made me realize just how powerful and how need it. Your organization is just not here locally in Georgia. But nationwide are there organizations for people. Who may be listening in different parts of the country. Do you cover the whole nation are just the southern southeast? Thank you so much for your kind words, we were so happy to have you at our event, we focus on Georgia and Alabama, and we do partner with a number of organizations. I would say are our key sister organizations would be the equal Justice initiative in Alabama led by the incredible the iconic Bryan Stevenson, and they just open their their their museum on lynching and their peace and Justice center, which encourage everyone to visit. But we also have allies throughout the south in Texas, Louisiana. This work is so important here in the deep south. This is the area of the country. That is hardest hit by the criminal Justice system. And I would just encourage your listeners if they're if they were.

"We were not an aggressive generation a fact which may explain my failure to understand some presentday attitudes in the armed services particularly in the royal marines and the parachute regiment possibly a degree of personal aggression is appropriate in troops are who are committed to battle for comparatively short periods like the marines and the paris when the success of an operation depends on oltra rapid action however in my experience troops lose personal aggression after about two months in doubt after three months they acquire a mature compassion which in no way detracts from their offensive capability they simply know a lot more about war i would suggest that personal aggression should not be confused with ofensive spirit based on professional competence and experience interesting take that aggression that you can maintain if you it's not going to last forever and and then you're going to have to fall back on duty and in that mature compassion which isn't taken away from their offensive capability interesting.
