Protesters rallying in Seattle as cop in George Floyd's death faces trial for murder
"Is on track to begin just a few hours from now on the trial of Derek Chauvet show opens. The former Minneapolis police officer picture here charged in the killing of George Floyd kneeled on Floyd's neck for more than nine minutes. Jury selection was supposed to begin today, but prosecutors fought for a delay until an appeal over reinstating a third degree murder charges resolved. The judge says selection will get underway tomorrow unless the higher court stops of Chopin pleaded not guilty to second degree murder and manslaughter charges. Ah third degree murder charge requires a lower standard of proof to get a conviction. Anti police protesters used the timing of that trial to stage a demonstration in downtown Seattle tonight. Double stroller. Marino's live with the group's message and the movement that trying to build Joel Mary. Instead of smashing windows and tagging businesses, these protesters relied on signs chance and passionate speeches to call for a complete overhaul of the Seattle Police Department. You have seen this movie before Justice for George Floyd is something these protesters don't think will be achieved is a trial for the former officer who killed him gets underway. We see these murders in the streets and we see officers get off. We're not holding our breath for a guilty verdict. Jean Smith, with the Seattle Alliance against Racist and Political Repression, says we face the same lack of accountability in Washington state. These activists say What is needed is a top to bottom reorganization of how police departments air run, starting with the formation of a civilian police accountability counsel to oversee all aspects of operations in full control over budget. Policy hiring firing of top level staff and street level officers oversight full access to investigations. These demonstrators say. The problem with current police watchdog agencies is the people who run them are appointed, alliance members say, unlike Seattle's Office of Police, Accountability, or Opa, Their proposal for a civilian counsel would be an elected board. So it answer directly to the community. There's a lot of cops on board on the opiates, so it's cops watching cops, which isn't great for accountability. Well, These demonstrators do not have a specific timeline to get the legislation out for these civilian oversight boards. They say they plan to hold more rallies. Get their message out peacefully.

The family of Zimbabwe's former leader Robert Mugabe burried him this weekend he was in power there for almost forty years and after he died people hoped for a new start but life subway hasn't gotten any better last last week city officials cutoff tap water in the capital city. Harare Andrew Meldrum is Africa editor for the Associated Press Sixteen years ago. He was expelled from Zimbabwe Walkway recently. He went back to look around at the country that he'd covered for decades. Meldrum told me the Water Shutoff in Harari is the result of both drought end economic economic crisis. There's no water going through the pipes. People were lining up to pump water from wells to wash their clothes in brackish streams or ponds so were seeing a city and a country that is really suffering from huge problems from an economic downturn as as I say you know no electricity in the capital for as much as nineteen hours a day no water. This is is something that was just unthinkable people. When I was living there I would imagine having spent so many years in Zimbabwe. You have lots of friends there. What are the differences in their lives since you've been. La well those of my friends who are still in Zimbabwe. They have experienced a roller coaster. Since I was expelled they they have experienced hyperinflation of more than a billion percent inflation Yaha and also they experienced something surprises in political situation they saw Robert Mugabe fall from power and there was a tremendous amount of optimism and excitement to think that that things were going to get better and now two years later at the death of Robert Mugabe. They're saying will actually things aren't better at all and the government under Emerson Mnangagwa's has has not achieved economic growth or an improvement in things so they're they're disappointed so the the question is why not I mean I remember the optimism awesome. People saying the country will be more free. The country will develop economically. It's Mugabe essentially. Many people said that's been holding us back and then you're saying but in two years nothing's happened why not well. Robert Mugabe left but the same party ZANU. PF and the same military military are running the show and they are not making the kind of substantial fundamental changes in the way the country is run that will will improve things for the average. Bob weigh-in one thing that was interesting that I'd like to highlight was a doctor who was calling for a strike to get higher wages. He was abducted he was tortured and he has now been released because there was an outcry amongst the medical community and throughout Zimbabwean of course it's great that he has been released but it it was one of a series of abductions of government critics in in recent months so it shows that there is a level of political repression still in Zimbabwe. What do you think happens next in in symbolic way. Is there some political leader political party waiting in the wings that has the potential to turn things around I don't see that political leader waiting waiting in the wings and it might be further in the wings than I can see at this point you know things are going to come together so that the country returns to the kind of prosperity that I saw it but I think it's going to take quite some time Andrew Meldrum. Thank you so much for being with us. Thank you Noel Andrew Meldrum the A._P.'s Africa editor joined us on Skype from Johannesburg.

"A discussion around the argument against, especially in this case from Susan. You say that China, this political shutdown is deterrent to innovation and sharing of ideas. Statist economic top-down colder continue with that thought you're temporary opponents respond to some of what you're saying, we've been through this before, with governments trying to pick winners and losers. That didn't work out too. Well, I think the Chinese have come a long way in trying to develop parts of their economy, but they don't have the ability to support their bottom up. Entrepreneurs, I mean Jack Ma was basically made to step down from Alibaba. Private entrepreneurs have been arrested under the anti-corruption campaign and a lot of Chinese are trying to move their money out. So the political retrenchment, China is having. Effect on the overall future picture for China's development. Let me about Michelle phone. I respond to the argument from Susan Thornton, that China is going to trip over its own feet on that. I think seasons right to the extent that China's intent to become the technological leader is sorted. It will be their own governments phone. We have had it in our mind that true innovation happens in our Silicon Valley. It's the moon shots at having the benefit of the best research in universities. Entrepreneurs who can go after something that nobody ever thought of before. It's that creative process of discovery whereas China's been excellent at the applications wants something established applying it in different ways. But right now in terms of intent and resources and momentum China does have an advantage, Susan response to that Silicon Valley is, these moonshot. It's not this incremental innovation and the Chinese say they have a built in advantage of marketisation and scaling, they want the innovation to come from the us from Silicon Valley. What they talk about. And they'll do the scaling up. I mean you figure out who makes the money in that scenario. I think that's something we need to worry about. But I do think there's a qualitative difference in the kind of innovation that you're talking about. I think Silicon Valley is not going to be replicated in China now Shenzhen is a logistics hub for almost everything that happens in the tech sector and that also can't be replicated in the US. So I'm very worried actually about this Technomic Cold War, which is the title of our peace because I don't really see how these things can be separated in Bremmer, first of all, you do have big companies like Microsoft, and Google the desperately want to maintain lab work jointly with the Chinese because they find that the level of innovation and cutting edge support that they're getting there is very important. They don't want the Americans to be in a position where they suddenly cut that off. But the other thing I would ask is Silicon Valley really is entrepreneurial, and moonshot like as it used to be, I mean, we're talking about some behemoth companies that are acting like functional monopolies their capture.

"It's seven minutes past seven here in London. You're listening to the globalist on monocle twenty four. I'm Ben Ryland. China's economic growth slowed to a rate not seen since nineteen ninety the bleak outlook is acknowledged concerns of the possible repercussions for the rest of the world and prompting questions of whether the trade war with the United States may bring about unintended consequences. Isabel Hilton is editor China dialogue Isabel this would be the weakest quarterly growth rate since the global financial crisis. Explain why this is so concerning the international community. Well, if you remember in that financial crisis, one of the one of the things that saved the global economy painful, though, it was was the fact that China through a four trillion package at its domestic economy, and there was close coordination between China and the United States on containing. What was clearly going to be a difficult situation the stimulus package sucked in commodities enroll materials from around the world. So so countries like Brazil, Australia, actually boomed through the financial crisis because of Chinese demand. Now, we're looking to slow down. I mean to get it in proportion. We always news at the Chinese economy was going to have to slow down at some point. You know, but these are tricky transitions they have to go from that reliance on export and cheap manufactured to a greater emphasis on domestic consumption on services on the higher value production. And that that transition is known as the middle income trap for very good reason that most countries don't actually get out of it. So you've priced yourself out at the lower end. And you haven't quite got this visted advanced technologies that the advanced economies get too. So China has been working quite hard and making that transition, but that brings us to the next problem, which is the more. They move into the higher value technologies. The more they come into conflict with advanced economies like the United States, which contends with some Justice that their way of moving into higher value. Technologies is stealing them. From the United States, that's one of the big factors on the table in the country negotiations. It's a pretty in intractable issue. So although we might see something coming out of these trade talks, the fundamental problems remain, which is you know, the clash between two titans, the world's first and second largest economy. And of course, as as you suggest when the GMC was erupting, we had close coordination to contain things between the US and China that wouldn't happen again notice things stand right now, we're not looking at another GMC as far as things go for now. But eve something were if something were needed to be contained how would that work? Well, it could be very tricky. I Xi Jinping is pretty worried about this. He had a meeting on Monday with a senior communist party officials, and and provincial leaders at which he laid out rather downbeat assessment of the coming year. And he talked about two dangers one was black swan. And the other was gray rhinos. She might find on a confused Chinese demand for rhino hone. But anyway agree rhino is a large predictable event for which we do not make enough preparation. And and I think without knowing what sheeting pin was specifically thinking about it's fairly clear that, you know, the the global economy is subject to shocks, and and disturbances, and it's very hard to to imagine that kind of coordination. But it's also quite hard to imagine, you know, that the resources which China had at that point to to throw into containing situation would be available again because since then, you know, the one of the problems of that stimulus package is very high levels of debt in China. And I in fact in response to the current slowdown. We've seen again loosening of credit they brought forward the date at which provincial. Authorities can issue bonds for infrastructure, China's very overbuilt already on infrastructure. So it's a bit the same kind of stimulus that we're seeing to try to you know. Stop the domestic situation going downhill, plus, you know, a warning about social instability, which means more political repression, which means that really the quite concerned and Chinese analysts regard this coming year is a pretty tough year..

"So if we can take the numbers and kind of see that they have dropped. I mean, it it's happening at the same time that Donald Trump is threatening to cut aid to countries in the northern triangle, a Central America, including L Salvador. And yet the numbers are down. What do you think of that threat, you use the logic by the precedent? If there is one country that you show the reward that will be El Salvador because nominally speaking, they add indeed go very time. When Davies fewer Salvadorians coming to the US. I frankly, believe that the threat of cutting off aid is just they know they're really craziest statement by your president. Because that's a completely counter-productive the very notion that there should be. Feel where people coming as a result of helping the Bill countries that are much more conducive to people wanting to stay in their own place of birth. Do think Trump has a point though that the Salvadoran government could do more to stem the flow of migrants. Frankly, I don't believe that that is something that is realistic to spec from any government leaving a country that you personally feeding is no longer offering you are not secure way of life that continues to be an international right than the only way to prevent that by embedding fifty people from exercising that right? What are the primary reasons that people leave El Salvador? Well, El Salvador has been historically one of the very poor country thing lacking medical together. But on top of that violence has been one on the Sean Salva competes with Honda's in as a result of that reality is that we have seen going back. Frankly, the last decade very sustained number of central Americans from these three countries come into the US seeking an opportunity to provide a way of life that is safe for them and their children, do you mind? If I ask you why? And when you left El Salvador left in similar circumstances in back in the late seventies early eighties young Mel, you would essentially the target of political repression by a dictatorial regime dominated by very bloody military, and I left because I did not feel safe anymore as I saw friends of mine being. Disappear. Never to be seen again that kind of violence is not so different in three expedients with what people are facing today, except that the violence is coming mainly from gangs. Narcotrafficking hit groups and also from abusive mealy daddy police forces team, they can do anything. They won without facing any consequences.

A pleasure next door to El Salvador in Guatemala, anti corruption. Officials investigating the president were given twenty four hours to pack up and leave on Monday President Jimmy Morales decided to pull out of the United Nations backed anti corruption commission known as they see Sieg. Joe-marie bird is a senior fellow at the Washington office on Latin America, she's been following the story of Morales and see Sieg and how the Guatemalan President might be implicating himself in. All of this. But it goes beyond that, I think it's easy to fall into the the track of thinking that it's just the president versus the spotty behind. The president is a group of individuals deeply immersed in organized crime and corruption networks for whom this is C represents an existential threat is this he has been very effective in its ten plus years in Malla. In fact, a few years ago, they brought to trial a former president of former vice president several ministers estate powerful. Business leaders have also been brought to trial on corruption charges. So there are individuals who are deeply immersed Timmy's organized crime networks who want to stop Sieg in its tracks before it continues its work and gets to them was getting too close to like some kind of evidence that would have linked president Morales to I dunno organized crime.

Some of those business leaders admitted to doing this. And there are others who are being investigated. Right..

"Cow. Will you really do? Get government. We deserve. We really do. Now, the the crisis that we have. Is. Not a record number of illegal immigrants entering the country. The fact is the number of illegal immigrants apprehended on the southern border. Has been declining for almost two decades from a high of about one point six million in two thousand to about half a million last year. Now, it started inching back up the number of apprehensions. I should say has begun to inch back up over the first two years of the Trump presidency. It's true that the numbers are up relative to two thousand seventeen. But mainly because there is a precipitous decline in two thousand sixteen. The increase in both the apprehensions and in the actual crossings has consisted mostly of record numbers of families and children coming from those three countries, El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala. Now, if you wanna believe the Washington Post, the New York Times. They argue or the report. The the right. Let's put it that way. They write that the surge of Central American families. Is overwhelming border facilities that were designed to detain him process. Primarily single men. That is factually true. There really are very few holding sales. In those few holding cells are now crowded with children. And when I say children, I use that term loosely. I actually should say people under the age of eighteen because if you're somewhere between the ages of fifteen and eighteen I'm not really sure I consider you a child. Last month. There were two children that died after being taken into custody. But. Autopsies and other information reveals that those kids were sick. And if you've dragged your kid all the way from the from Guatemala to Tijuana, you know, your kids probably going to get sick somewhere along the way. So the surgeon Central American families. And the inability now some people would say refusal, but I think it's an inability. To manage that surge. Because as. What are we gonna do with them? You've got to keep them from crossing the border. We can't do the very good job of that. So invariably inevitably they're going to get across the border once they get across the border, whether you want whether you like them about to say or you've totally disagreeable in bed to say. What I'm about to say is just the legal truth. Once they crossed the border. They have constitutional rights. It's no different than if. If I jump on a plane at Denver International airport in I fly nonstop from here to Munich when I land in Munich, I'm subject to the German constitution, and the German statutes and laws in Munich. It's just. Just the way it works. What we need to do is figure out policies. That will speed up legal immigration. We need to recognize that the current asylum statutes rules regulations and policies are outdated antiquated and are not designed for an influx of people that are seeking asylum based on crime in their country. Or poverty in their country. That's not what asylums designed for asylum is designed for those who are seeking to escape political repression. Cut like I'm going to do from Colorado here after you know, the the news department keeps reporting on the inauguration of Jared polis. You know, we now are controlled by a democrat legislature in the democrat governor so pretty soon I'm going to be going to the undisclosed location and seeking asylum in new may go from from the political repression in Colorado. So we need to fix the immigration system. We need to secure the borders. And when I say, secure the borders, you asking a question that nobody seems to be able to answer. I'm sorry. Was that? Breath. Eating by the way. You didn't bring me any bourbon. You're supposed to go pick some up over over there. I gotta walk. You expect me to walk all the way down the hallway my own bourbon left the studio. I had things to do in here. Studio because I had things to do. You me tell you what I had to do. Now, I'd rather not now. Okay. So I got just enough diet coke that little shot. Do you think you think Laurie Lynn's got any? Whiskey? Whisky coke? What do you think? Get a diet coke tonight. Because I knew I was going to need the caffeine say she just have the whiskey straight up. She got shot glasses back there..
