"national congress" Discussed on KQED Radio

"It is really important that we get all the collaboration of cooperation from the from the government that is now needed to scale up on be able to respond to what the needs are on the ground. That's the head of all the director of operations for the I. C. R. C. The International Committee of the Red Cross a speaking about the situation in Tigre to our Leyla Natu. Used a BBC World Service. Let's take you to South Africa now because the spokesperson for the opposition were under National Congress, or R and C in South Africa, has confirmed to the BBC that the Rwandan exile sihf. Bomp. A leaky was killed in Cape Town on Sunday afternoon, Mr Bond Party. He was the national coordinator for the RNC s O. What was behind this killing? That's a talk this through the BBC's Thompson, a second in Johannesburg. No. So tell us the circumstances surrounding his death. What do we know? According to Rwanda's National Congress. We understand that Mr Bumble Ricky, who runs a shop that sells bids in Cape Town, was received a call from a potential client. I'm asking him if he had any bids to sell, and that person then went to the shop and let his way he met up with Mr Bumble Ricky. He paid for the bed and then said he would like for it to be delivered to his house, which is situated in in Yangon Township, which is one of the most dangerous townships in the country. We understand that Mr More mavericky was You know and settled about the sin Bin asked that a colleague or friend accompany him there on Ben. From what we together the person who they were going with to deliver the bed. Ask for the car to be stopped at a dead end road. Saying that his house was nearby. And he was going to open his house and then call them to come and deliver the bid. They then waited for about 15 minutes and there was nothing while there was still there. Two assailants came out of no way shot, Mr Bumble Ricky through the window off the vehicle where he was seated. Fatally wounding him, and that was the end of his life. Under this stage, you know? Is there anything further to point to this being politically motivated? You mentioned though, that this township is extremely dangerous. So what are people saying? Exactly. It's very difficult to tell at this stage if there was any, you know, involvement or alleged involvement as people are speculating all over social media that this could have been a hit. Ordered by Rwanda's president Paul Kagame. Me but other the same, but we do know that in Gambon younger township at some stage had be highest murder rate in South Africa and killings like this one. I'm not, you know, extraordinary. These things happen all the time. Wheels understand from the police that they are still investigating. No one has been arrested yet. You also understand that after the shooting, the assailants took The mobile phones and wallets. So people are saying that well, this has been made to look like a robbery if it wasn't lead, a hit that was ordered from Rwanda. Yeah, And we do know that that several opponents off the Rwandan President Paul Kagame may have been killed abroad, including in South Africa, So I guess it's understandable that people might be making joining those kind of dots. A lot of people are joining those kind of thoughts. Because if you would recall in 2010 General Nyamwasa who was the Army general off their wonder, NAMI What was there was an assassination attempt on his life. In fact, there were two assassination attempts on his life. Followed, which in which you know people were arrested and convicted for that attempted murder. But a few years later in 2014, the former spy chief off Rwanda, Mr Petrick carry gear. Was also strangled, murdered at a a day hotel in Johannesburg. And at that time we do recall that pork. Obama had said that terrorists should not be spayed and that you know that that statement was then viewed as an attack on whoever was, you know. Seem to be opposing him and would also remember that back in 2014. The South African government was livid shortly after Mr Carry gear was murdered, went aspires expelling at the high commissioner off one day here in South Africa because they were saying that You know poker. Gammy was ordering hits to be taking place here in South Africa and poke a gamma himself in return, accused South Africa of harboring dissidents. Um So thank you for the update. The BBC's an answer. Mr Cho is talking to us from Johannesburg. Wait. You gotta talk about the vaccine in Israel that huge roll out of the vaccine there on what's being learned. There are also a little bit of art history. The first we go to one of our top.

Party down: Vietnams Communist leaders meet

"Once every five years with much pomp and pageantry the bombs communist leadership convenes in a national party congress thirteenth. One again in the capital hanoi. This week the expectation is that there will be a raft of stamp policies and new party leaders john despite the country's relatively low kobe numbers and positive economic performance. The party's position outside. The national conference center is weaker than it seems at the national party congress. They discuss issues confronting vietnam. They set policy and they elect the central committee. Politburo and the four top jobs. Charlie mccann is our southeast asia correspondent among them the most powerful job in the country. That is the party. Secretary-general and what's the overall tone at the congress. This time around pretty self. Congratulatory parties had a good year. They've handled the pandemic pretty well. Had just over fifteen hundred cases and fewer than fifty deaths and the economy actually grew by three percent but there's still a lot of disquiet and the party and indeed in the public disquiet in the party in the form of some kind of opposition. There's no organized opposition. Nobody's going to supplant the communist party anytime soon and ever since the nineteen eighties. When the country embarked on the transition from a century planned economy to market one the party has state its legitimacy on rising incomes on his ability to increase prosperity. And it's done that over. Four decades vietnam has transformed from one of the poorest countries in the world to middle income manufacturing powerhouse. But if you look beyond. Those headline figures are causes for concern. The economy has been growing at about seven percent. The last several years and the economy needs to reach that level of growth to keep the labor market. It's not clear that it can do so however at the same time as you have this depressed. Economic growth inequality is rising and social mobility is declining. okay that's about formal opposition parties but you mentioned disquiet among the public as well. What's happening. They're vietnamese can't express their discontent through politics. Because opposition parties are banned but informal criticism is growing. There are a lot of vietnamese. Social media users about sixty five million out of a total population of one hundred million according to our social british firm as level of education has improved in the country and more and more people have access to the internet. they've been exposed to values that are antithetical to the communist paradise that the regime is trying to build these values like democracy and human rights and they can express views on social media and so it's that disquiet than in the public that's causing the disquiet in the party. I mean how is the house. The party dealt with that space for criticism harshly. They have cracked down over the past five years. They've arrested two hundred eighty people for quote anti-state activities up from sixty eight in the previous five year period instructed the serum press to scrub phrases like civil society and human rights from their pages and in the months leading up to the national congress. This crackdown has intensified earlier. This month day sentenced three freelance journalists famous for criticizing the government to between eleven and fifteen years in prison. It's a lot easier to shoot off an angry tweet or facebook post than it is to organize in vietnam where protest is technically illegal but actually there have been a lot of protests in real life over the last several years so in two thousand eighteen for instance tens of thousands of vietnamese took to the streets. Because they're angry about a proposed law that they were worried would allow chinese companies to lease special economic zones for a ninety nine years as a lot of anti chinese sentiment in vietnam. Because there's a lot of concern that chinese infringing on their offering sovereignty and the protests so violent angry there were clashes between the police and protesters. The government eventually abandoned this law so a good pandemic response and the economic growth. That comes with that somewhat offset by this discontent. What else is on party leaders minds. Ironically trade is going to be a worry as well and i say -ironically because trade is a is a massive driver of economic growth. It is through trade. That vietnam has been able to transform itself into manufacturing powerhouse and yet at the same time it gives its export markets leverage over the government. So for instance in order to get the eu to agree to free trade deal last year. Vietnam had to agree to abolish forced labor and allow the creation of independent labor unions which was a massive concession but surely concerns such as that aren't limited to the you know means the party officials have to think very carefully about their relations with both china its biggest trade partner and the us biggest export market. The trump administration came down really hard on vietnam labeled it. A currency manipulator late last year and trump has described vietnam quote. Almost a single worst abuser of everybody for that reason. So the party will be very keen to rebuild the relationship with the biden administration. But at the same time i can't be seen to cozy up too closely to the us for fear of offending china. With whom it has an incredibly important relationship you know. Shares ideology shares along land border and they have an important trade relationship you know. China is largest source of materials and equipment for vietnam manufacturing industry so that it's a tricky balancing act required of party officials to get that relationship right so whoever emerges from the congress secretary general. There won't be much time for celebrating. He's gonna have a lengthy to do list.

For most of the time, you're a bit paranoid you. You kind of imagine that everyone is looking at you knows what you're doing. And looking back off to the arrest. We realized that they were following us for quite a while. In Nineteen Seventy, eight, twenty, nine year, old Tim Jenkin was active in the political efforts of South Africa's anti-apartheid movement. The country had been operating under apartheid for thirty years. A system that institutionalized racial segregation. The word apartheid means a partner. and. The government was controlled by white minority. Tim Jenkin White. He grew up in Cape Town. So I grew up under the situation with everything was divided. So. spatially, cities and towns divided the white areas. Black areas. So we went to white schools. Were black schools in black areas. Everything was separated even buildings had separate lifts for White People. For Black People. Talk said benches, white people and black people and certain beaches with designated for black. People. Most of the beaches with what people So. I just accepted eight. Because I didn't know any better I just assumed that the way things were. And then. Maneuver Twenty one years old the to the K.. He says, everyone he met their asked him what he thought about the fact that he lived in a country that was so racially segregated. He says he was actually confused. But then he started seeing programs on TV. Shows that would never have been broadcast in South Africa about the consequences of apartheid and at first I, didn't believe these These films that I was seeing. I thought it was all propaganda. After awhile, and after reading books that I couldn't obtain in South Africa. I began to realize the started thing is something quite terrible. I'd be living. Positive it. Really maintaining it in the sense and not understanding. What's Black South Africans? was suffering. He, returned to South Africa, and started studying sociology at the University of Cape Town. There, he became friends with another white student named. Stephen Lee. And started cheering books that he had brought back from the UK. anti-apartheid. Books and political histories that were censored in South Africa. At. This time the most prominent anti-apartheid organization was the African National Congress also known as the ANC. Nelson Mandela was a member of the ANC. By the nineteen seventies, the organization was banned in South Africa that had been declared unlawful. Seen by the White Minority Threat to. Public. Order. They operated underground and Tim and Stephen had heard that if you wanted to get involved, you could try contacting their office in. London. So the two of US traveled to the. UK. and. Simply went and knocked on the door. and. It was quite an amusing. Incident. because. The person who received US Said please just sit down there and you'll be wasted. Then he went into his office and type something on a piece of paper. The piece of paper said. You should not come here. Please meet me at the cafe around the corner in half an hour. So that's what we did. Tim and Stephen met with members of the ANC several times. And they asked to be put to work back home in south? Africa, the said Okay you can go back and sit up your print shop. And we'd need to teach you various things like security matters, how to conduct yourself in the underground. And showed us a few other. Innovative. Devices for for distributing leaflets and information one of these was. The is the leaflet bomb. It's not really a bomb. It was really just. Kind of exploding device. That would kill. Hundreds of leaflets up into the air, and then they would rain down on a crowd target crowd somewhere. So we went back to South Africa. With this knowledge. And set up shop.

The Racial Justice Reckoning Over Sports Team Names Is Spreading

"Trump Trump weighed weighed in in this this week week on on the the Washington Washington NFL NFL team team and and the the Cleveland Cleveland Indians Indians baseball baseball team. team. Considering Considering changing changing their their names, names, names that native Americans have long said are racist. Both franchises announced they're reviewing their names and changes maybe coming before. 2020 NFL and Major League Baseball season's begin perspectives producer ABC is Eric Mollo has more with America In the midst of a reckoning over racial inequality. More athletes are continuing to speak out across the sports world. By noon, Stanford was right. Arizona Cardinals quarterback Cuyler Murray announcing he'll be taking any during the playing of the national anthem this year, one of several players pledging to stand in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who knelt during the playing of the national anthem to protest police brutality and social injustice. Erica. Over the past week, There's been another reckoning in sports, whether to change team names or logos that contain Native American emblems. In stereotypes. There is time to Move for Major League Baseball's Cleveland Indians announced they're considering changing the team's name manager Terry Francona feels now is an appropriate time for change Older. We're never trying to be disrespectful. I still feel that way, but I don't think that's a good enough answer. Today. The announcement comes a little over a year after Cleveland removed its chief Wahoo logo, a cartoonish caricature of a native American man long considered racist. It also came shortly after the announcement at Washington's NFL franchises weighing whether to change its team name, which is widely regarded as a racial slur. Julian Brave Noise Cat contributes to ESPN is the undefeated He writes that the team name references Native American skin color. In the bloody scouts of indigenous People taken his bounty by white colonists. If a group of people are speaking out about the racism of a team logo, it's It's quite the thing to go and claim that actually know you are honoring them, and it's hard for me to imagine the same thing happening for another racial group in the United States. Team owner Dan Snyder has bound for years. He never changed the name. Saying the term actually embodies honor, respect and pride. Protesters and advocacy groups have called for change for decades. But on ly in the face of mounting economic pressure did Snyder finally announced they're reconsidering investors with major sponsors from Pepsi. FedEx in Nike sent letters asking the companies to terminate their relationship with Washington unless it agreed to a name change, which you know kind of exciting on the one hand, but the reality it reveals about the power of capital. In our culture and society is a little bit of a downer for me. But those two franchises don't stand alone. A world without native mascots is the ideal world. Nick Marin is a member of this a pony tribe in a staff writer for the New Republic any kind of imagery like that and specifically as it relates to native people, because we have been made invisible, forcibly the idea that we would You get rid of the walking Jim NFL team and keep the Kansas City Chiefs It speaks a certain hollowness that I think this kind of corporate social justice campaigns often involve the Kansas City Chiefs. Atlanta Braves in Chicago Blackhawks are among professional franchises that continue to employ Native American imagery on their jerseys in their team names and in cheers by fans has become a very normalized thing, which I think is common place with a lot of systems and forms of institution. Oppression. These things we don't think of them in the moment as being particularly egregious because they've become so normalized in society. Those franchises aren't following the lead of Washington in Cleveland. None of them announce name changes, though Atlanta is reportedly considering no longer allowing the Tomahawk chop chance at games, and the Blackhawks went on to say that their team name and logo symbolizes an important native American figure. And they aren't moving toward formal change. It reduces you to a caricature there, 570 plus tribal nations. That's 570 plus tribal cultures. Any kind of idea that, like there is one kind of Indian is very reductionist kind of view of US. President Trump even weighed in this week via Twitter, saying the names of Washington's in Cleveland's teams Signify strength and not weakness, and they're merely considering the change to be politically correct. The president's statement in the very decisions of these franchises do raise questions isn't important to distinguish between the offensiveness of each individual team name, and is any of this iconography, actually honor or respect the Native Americans? Or in same team names and logos on our native people. Is that merely perpetuating cultural appropriation and the use of stereotypical Native American imagery, Martin says. It's not that slippery of a slope. If you're saying our mascot, our team name is not as racist as Washington NFL team still an admission that it is races, Washington's head coach, Ron Rivera, who is one of four minority head coaches in the NFL, told The Washington Post. It would be awesome if the team changed its name. In the National Congress of American Indians have long opposed the use of Native American stereotypical imagery in professional sports. As professional sports franchises are choosing to reexamine these issues in the midst of America's reckoning over race relations, they're faced with a new choice. Well, economic pressures determine if they choose to rename their teams or will they listen to decades long calls from Native American advocacy groups to eliminate the use of these emblems of the only reasons happening so swiftly is because their this is something that native people years of ground Work into and so what this moment kind of larger cultural reckoning has become. It's just kind of an impetus to say Okay, Now is the time to finally get rid of these things.

"In talent, Oregon, you're on the air with congressman. Thanks for watching us on free speech. Tv speaker. Yes, I I don't know if congressman poke in thank you, Tom incompetent tro for being here. If you any of your constituencies are indigenous people, I don't know if you're aware probably are of Justice Kavanagh's hostility towards tribal lodge, a native peoples. Are you am I on the air? Yes. The whole thinks he's better. Yeah. This is the native native Alaskans. Have now presented a petitional. Lisa Murkowski, signed, no. The the National Congress of American Indians has asked for him not to be confirmed. There is a large group of indigenous women for multitude of reasons. Beautiful open letter in the high plains reader at leap, it is about this in about many other subjects and I just want to stay on. So he's also shown into his quotes at extreme prosperity to affirmative action. And if anything has shown us that affirmative action should not be going away. It's the president. Conditioning on his country with the racist hostility that I'm hearing from the extreme right? And those people in power, and I'd just like to read to quote, this would. A part of it was in a article he had written in the Wall Street Journal lobby a case rice versus Cayatano which was about Hawaiian indigenous peoples right in which I believe she did win. And he also I remember she clerked for Kennedy Kennedy was also very hostile to indigenous Schiller. We're running out of time. If we want to get a response from congressman POE can we need to let him speak. Okay. Congress know there are a lot of different reasons. She let you brought up a couple I would argue that throwing labor issues we're working people in a whole bunch of other things that that should be enough to merit a vote against him. But you know, with this Senate, that's not I think the two things that are most interesting right now are one are let's have a hearing on Thursday. And now additional women making these accusations. Are they going to do the right thing and have FBI investigation the voted different time than Friday? And then Secondly, I still think there's you know, it seems we've lost the conversation about any perjure himself four times during his testimony. And what does that mean? I mean, you know, you can't have a supreme court Justice who also happens to be a liar. So I think that you know, that is an issue that's kind of gone by the side. But should still be looked at that. Also, an addition to what you said the merits of what his positions are an issues. Let's add those two in and not do this Dianne Feinstein this morning just released a uh. I don't know if was foia or how she got it. But a memo the cavenaugh had written back when he was working in the Bush administration that completely contradicts sworn testimony. He gave to the Senate Judiciary committee back in two thousand four I think it was when he was being considered for the DC clerkship. So she's found another live has I think we're up to five now where he's lied under oath to congress and do with all this stuff this week. This is a pretty.

People without compensation in the next couple of weeks and they say it's in. Line with section twenty five of the country's constitution that's the one that Ruth Bader Ginsburg thought was such a, great constitution that she would look on? My gosh that is right was all about right. She forgot about, that clip, all about human rights and so that's That's why some being covered now because. It's all about human rights all about the destruction I'm telling you guys I'm.

Being, rounded up or killed. Or you, know being squashed right right so it's just another race of people doing it to another race of people I don't, care what race it is it's bad it's wrong, Nope not in this case because of Postmodernism well it's, so bad.

Death in the furniture and the, death in, the barns are in their houses horrific stories if you want to read about it, I don't know why you would unless you just want to know what's going on in the world but it's it's, horrific then they sent out this tweet That said the biggest, this was from the African National Congress they tweeted, out the biggest, mistake, we're, making is to consult murderers white people or nine. Percent of the population they own seventy nine percent of the land they never came in consulted, us for the, land if, they? Want. To for if they want us to forgive them now then let us share. The land the mineral resources okay so. They essentially. Called all. White, people murderers because that's who they're talking. About, consulting and people would. Nuts on, Twitter in this at all we just tweeted out somebody who was in the congress who said that okay well you, didn't attributed to anybody you didn't put any quotation, marks on it you didn't put that you're re tweeting, it you. Know it just came from the African, National Congress and if anybody doesn't think this is just going to end into a massive race war, and and, and the. Slaughterhouse holy cost of white people Look what happened to Portland we were just talking about this have you really have you read the story about what. Happened in Portland crazy okay It is because of the mayor yeah. Just a limousine going on I, don't like ice and so they're not gonna get any help from. Me, they took hostages in?

Why do you know who's sponsoring, them you know who's supporting them who democratic socialist of course yeah Care I, mean, jeez that's why that's why they're politically totally. Fine it's the same thing that is happening in a bigger on a bigger scale or more troubling scale in South, Africa it's it's. Fine it's, fine totally. Fine take. It they did it White people did it why people are responsible for apartheid, they have come. Into them, didn't we. Say that. That was wrong We all. Agree that that was awesome, Mendeleev say that was wrong didn't he Remember remember? Meeting. With the guy that got? Nelson Mandela out of jail the, white guy yeah you, remember what he said? You remember how. What he said when, Nelson Mandela met what was his name it wasn't cleric was, it the the the head of the? The white party in. In South Africa I think it was clerk was it, I think send remember he said he said he was. There and he said not a lot. Of people, knew this at the. Time I don't, know if they do now he said but I was there and he. Said Nelson, Mandela came and nobody knew what Nelson. Mandela was going to do I mean he could have started a race war it could have. Been just massive blood should have been, total revenge and cleric. Could have done the same thing could. Have just said get the, army go And he was very. Tense and he said Nelson Mandela walked into the room and remember he said he got down. On his knees in front of cleric, and said brother please I have I have no animosity towards you have. None towards me, you have, the chance right now. To join me and set things right and fix this through peace and he was on, his, knees It's amazing. Story yeah. Amazing and cleric did he joined him and it was. They set out to reconciliation until this new president came in and said, reckons his quote reconciliation is. Over time has passed for reconciliation Yeah that's that's revenge We mentioned several. Times how politically we're we couldn't be. Further from, Nelson Mandela I mean he, was socialist communist he but but as far as a man is for his for his country and, for his fellow men he was same level same thing. With, Martin Luther, King yeah I mean Martin Luther, King towards the end I think he was moving. Right, towards socialism communism Seems like it seems like it. I. Don't know, for sure I mean he's dead, I don't know does not yeah but who knows Doesn't matter when it. Comes to how, you behave. In. Situations like that He's, the man so Nelson Mandela so as Gandhi I. Don't agree with Gandhi and. This guy seems to. Be a bad dude he just wanted us guys we just want revenge this guy's a really bad dude So so what happens Unless we intervene I think there's going. To. Be serious bloodshed If I if I were a white farmer. I think I'd be getting for. Getting out of that. Country. And. Now I, believe they can't that's what I've heard yeah yeah I mean we might actually have. To go, his talk to. The Nazarene fund and and see I. Mean I, don't know. I don't think he can get out I mean, I'm not I'm, not excited about getting entangled in other. Messes but I mean I don't know what they're gonna do they're just, going to be slaughtered? And if somebody doesn't help them this what happened in, Zimbabwe it's just going to be ethnic cleansing Zimbabwe's a, really clear parallel, here whereas exactly the same took away. The the land from the white, farmer and the gliding they're black who, did the did the? Mugabe who was a yeah so yeah And. And, he The big problem there with friends, who were black they, were not farmers but they didn't know how to farm. And what happened.
