"We'll bring in Ryan Sutton right now. Okay, so now we have the man himself from the YouTube video right onto our podcast here, Brian succi at Ryan. Thank you for coming on the show. I know it was kind of last minute notice here. So we appreciate it. Awesome. Thanks for having me. Glad to be here. Listen to you guys every day on my way to work, so. Awesome. To be on the show. Yeah. Awesome. Well, yeah, I mean, we appreciate you putting out that YouTube video. I haven't been very familiar with this feature in the past. I've always known that with the curly brackets you could do dynamic keyword insertion. That's something I've never really been attracted to. So because of that, I never really used it that much with expanded text ads, but I guess with responsive ads, I'm assuming this is new to responsive because I hadn't seen it before, but we had this advanced location thing that you kind of told the world about with your with your video. So I wanted to bring you on just ask you a few questions. I guess first question is kind of how long have you been using this? How did you stumble across it? Sure. So I've been using it. I think I looked and it was August of last year. I didn't find any information on it. I was just playing around with the responsive because I'm sure probably around that time is when we started knowing responsive is going to be the future. So then I was playing around in there and I saw the option and I've been using it ever since. Awesome. So what are you, so let me clarify with you what we were talking about earlier. My impression is that to get this thing to fire. And if you're showing cities to show the city that the users in or to use the city that the user is in is.

What's happening at the protests in Myanmar?

"Maybe we should just start with where we are today so we're recording this uk. Time on tuesday morning. We're about a week out from the code. What's your understanding of. The current situation is on the first of february army took over arrested. The president's in the de facto head of government on succi said that they were acting within the emergency provisions of the constitution. They said that they would hand back. Power after holding elections within a year's time since then protests have been growing every day. They've spread around the country in several different towns and cities over the past forty eight hours. We've seen massive protests in the biggest city former capital. Rangoon may be hundreds of thousands of people on the streets yesterday yesterday evening. The government put out new regulations. And this morning. They also blocked major intersections and bridges as well in the city so the protests i think have become smaller but they have continued at in naypyidaw the capital. We're getting the first reports that someone may have been killed in altercations between protesters and the security forces. So it's a very very fluid time. We don't know what momentum the protests have they seen bay determined people seem incredibly energized in their desire to oppose takeover by the military. But we don't know what's going to happen because this is an army after all that's crushed many uprisings and demonstrations in the past. So we'll come onto what might come next In a bed. But what's your best understanding of why now so the ostensible reason that's been given is unhappiness about the elections but the elections were in november. So why february. So the elections were in early november around the same week as a. Us elections the commander in chief. The head of the army who turned sixty five. This year is meant to retire. I think he had thought that he might have a chance of of becoming the president after the elections. I think he had hoped that the pro army party the union solidarity and development party usdp would do reasonably well as well as many ethnic minority parties. Were contesting the elections as well when they didn't do well when the nfl the party amongst says suci a landslide. Victory the army. I said they would recognize and respect. The results but in december came increasing allegations from the us dp side of massive electoral fraud. And the army commander in chief and others in the army latched onto that and demanded an investigation that call for an investigation was rejected by the union election commission and that led in january two demands by the army that there'd be a special session of parliament to discuss these allegations that was also rejected by the speaker of the lower house of parliament that was followed by ultimatum and parliament the new parliament the newly elected parliament was meant to sit on the first february and the ultimatum was the weekend before the ultimatum past attempts back and forth reaching compromise that failed in the army seized power just on the on the eve of parliament sitting and the promise now is of new elections within the next twelve months so what reason is that i think that the outcome would be any different unless the elections themselves setup in such ways to guarantee a different outcome given what happened in november given the result would elections at any point in the next twelve months produce a different results. It's very difficult to say that they would. I mean the analogy won a landslide. I think with the army takeover. If anything else has g is more popular than ever strength of feeling against other militaries very high. I think the the pro army party would do even worse if elections were held today or unit. In years time. I think a couple of different sort of possibilities. I mean one is that you know. Assess has now been charged with illegal. Possession of walkie talkies communications equipment. That carries i think maximum prison sentence of three years. One thing would be that they would keep her under house arrest for this period through the next elections which is what they did back in. The army did back in twenty ten when elections were held than the other. Possibility is that they would disband the analogy. The other might be that they hold fresh elections and count on the d. says gee boycotting those elections. They're different possibilities. There's also the possibility that they might try to change the electoral system from first past post system to a proportional representation system in which case smaller parties including the ethnic minority parties. Might do better than they might think that they would have a better chance because the army has an automatic hold on twenty five percent of the seats so they actually just need allied parties to to win twenty five percent up to choose the president and a new government

Was she miscalculated. If she kept on placating the military which have father founded says some seventy five years ago calling the military generals her brothers because they she consider them her father's sons of the she thought that the military would cooperate with her to truly democratize the country and then returned to the barracks. Were that proved to be wrong. If we have. I have always said that this will not work. I came from an extended military family that the military has no interest in democratising the country and no commitment to democratic values whatsoever. At the second reason. Is she herself is anti-muslim racist. She shares the view that ranger muslims. Do not belong in permit. That's viewed the army has institutionalized and the public has embraced and brave so bizarre.

Well i think the military has institutionalized the genocidal persecution of hinges since one thousand nine hundred seventy and there are a far more row hinges dispersed across the world than in the country. There are half a million hindus in open air prison camps in western about one hundred twenty thousands in what the german officials call concentration camps that the rest are in these positive villages to from where they cannot leave and that there is a one million in bangladesh waiting to be repatriated we expect the perpetrators of genocide to welcome back the survivors of genocide. It is like telling the ranger to go back to auschwitz. You're telling them. The victims of nancy esus to go back to auschwitz.

Myanmar's Suu Kyi detained again, without her old support

"Very sad news out of me on mars. Some people call it. Burma long story there. Were it's going to go with myanmar for the purposes of this show but over the weekend the military staged a coup They surrounded myanmar's parliament building and arrested top civilian leaders like onto chee. The commander in chief of burma's military is now defacto in charge. The military has declared a year long state of emergency for those who don't know on succi is a political leader a nobel peace prize winner who spent decades under house arrest because of the military. She's revered and also controversial. Figure so ben we can start this story in a lot of places what you like. Twenty seven two thousand fifteen nineteen sixty two nineteen forty eight but i think for now maybe we just go back to november of last year. That was when aung san suu cheese national league for democracy party trounced the military's proxy party the union solidarity and development party in these parliamentary elections. I think her party won. Like seventy or eighty percent of the vote in this threatened the military's control of the country which they had a lot of because of how your mars constitution is set up in so the military quickly declared that this election was fraudulent. There was a lot of chatter and concern and speculation about a potential coup. It's sort of increased ever since november when that election occurred I should know that election observers international observers don't believe there was fraud but this coup finally occurred over the weekend on the day that the parliament was supposed to convenient for its first session and not coincidentally Also means that mars top general ghosts from this lame duck figure who is gonna retire in june to a defacto dictator. So ben what. What else do you think people need to know about what happened and like despite you know all these concerns into predictions that had been building over time we surprised that the military ultimately went through in just seized power in a very classic old school military coup this weekend. Well i think first and foremost it's a tragedy for the people of myanmar. I think what people need to understand. Is that the competition between aung. San suu kyi in the military has never been resolved and it goes back. Many decades in the military's been in charge for most of the en marche history as an independent country on. She went back to the country and won a landslide democratic election. One thousand nine hundred and the milton validated and through in prison and put under house arrest is essentially and it wasn't until two thousand eleven that she was able to re enter politics and there was this moment in two thousand fifteen when her party. The ldp won a landslide election. But that didn't mean that she had the power she became what's called the state councillor because the constitution expressly prohibited her from becoming president. There was a provision in the constitution written into the constitution. That said if you had foreign born children you could not become president and was ridden with her in mind. The military under the constitution prescribed itself a twenty five percent bloc in the parliament which was enough to prevent them from allowing the constitution to be amended. So you can see what was going on here. The military was trying to wrest power right and and keep its economic interest by the way too because they're corrupt the enrich themselves all their power. All their money could be a risk if onkelinx and the nfl could reform the constitution and so since she won that election in two thousand fifteen her five-year term the five-year. Parliamentary term was very tense because she wanted to reform the constitution. The military obviously didn't want her to do that. You have but we talked about a lot. The ethnic cleansing of the hindu got a lot of attention where she seemed to not want to challenge the military in part. Because she didn't want what just happened to happen you know. She thought that she might be able to co op. Some of the military to make a deal with them to show them perhaps said she was in his threatening as they might have thought but this question was unresolved and she had a very negative relationship. But just a rivalry with this commander in chief. Minhang lung The two of them did not like each other did not get along. I met when i met with her. But when i was still government. She would complain about him that he he wanted to do something like this. She spoke about fears of a coup. So this has been lurking in the backdrop despite kind of the partial democratic opening. It's taken place in the

Myanmar coup: What is happening and why?

"United kicked off the year with an attempted coup and myanmar kicked off this month with a successful on me and mas military has seized power in a coup against the democratically elected government. There me and mars military moved in in myanmar's capital. The bridge to parliament is blocked by police. And the roads are lined with military and move the country's elected leader and her cabinet out somewhere behind the guns aung san suu. She is once more prisoner of the generals but even though the military swept a democratically elected leader out of power this isn't quite a textbook takeover even before this hour coup happened. The military was really with sharing their power with a civilian government. Dr van trend study social movements in myanmar. So we asked him to explain. Why a military that already had plenty of power in myanmar decided to take all during the general election that happens in november. Two thousand twenty. The result was a landslide for the ruling party of that time. Which was the national league of democracy. The first official results trickling men from mass general elections giving three parliamentary seats to suit. She's national league for democracy even before the final count is in the potty says it's confident of a landslide win however the military claimed that there was widespread voter fraud and that there were millions of ballots that were missing and they requested the Government led by the national league of democracy an auditor to investigate these claims of voter fraud. And what's also important to note is that there is the national local election observers who've seen the entire process from the voter lists to the election and they said that the election in street and fifth they have had talks and meetings with that the governments in the preceding days however those talks and discussions have not led to any kind of agreements between the two sides and since they failed to reach an any kind of agreement is very likely that there was a reason why they have decided to go forward with the crew right before a new parliament. We're supposed to convene. How did this get to the point of a coup. I mean i. I know the military in myanmar had been a strong presence already. Even you know throughout the leadership of unsung cheap but were there warnings there might be a coup so the relationship between the energy party and the military has always been a complicated one back in two thousand ten when they decided to carry out a political liberalization. They didn't want to have all of the political power of the military to be stripped away. Even before voters cast. The result is ensured. Twenty five percent of saints will go to the military alliances with the current regime have been made to ensure political survival in more than forty percent of seats. The only content as a candidates linked to the current regime or does not regarded as a fridge with the and government since two thousand fifteen They have been trying to tread very delicately in terms of how they deal with the the the military they try not to confront with military on various policy issues including the rowing crisis fall. There's an extraordinary scene playing out. On the world stage this morning nobel peace prize winner on san succi defending her country of myanmar against genocide charges in the international court of justice. She's also standing up for the say military. They kept her under house arrest for years. However you know like in the past year s We got closer to the election. In two thousand twenty the on sense which he led government and the different and the mp's have also tried to propose these amendments to the constitutions to give a very very obvious example twenty five percent of our percents of not elected and we believe that for democracy to behold complete all the representatives must be elected and that would basically strip away a lot of these different powers and controls of the military and wish strip away. You know quite a few of his decision making power. That is something that the military also find to be. Quite worrying doesn't mean it wasn't really surprised coup. I was It is always a surprise. Of course when you look back you can see various factors right. That could help explain why the military decided to take over power to to to conduct this military coup at this moment but before it happened everybody always had hope that people in myanmar or at least a majority of people in myanmar will still be able to continue enjoying their rights and their freedoms

They threatened to take action if their complaints addressed in november the southeast asian country of myanmar held parliamentary elections. The military ruled party performed badly and spent months making accusations of fraud without any specific evidence.

They talk very good here but she said in that white house meeting. She wanted to create unity out of diversity and be loops. The united states. Canada friends to continue with us along the road of protests program. How did a country making real democratic progress descended into a coup. Well i i think it's important to recognize that. Myanmar is still evolving as democracy. That's laurel miller of the international crisis group. I think we have to say it was a partial democracy in which the military already had an enormous share of power in the country. Consider this democracy is fragile in some countries more than others now. Myanmar's democracy faces eight test and the biden administration which wants to reassert american leadership on the world.

It was really only about a week ago that most people in myanmar and most myanmar specialists overseas started to believe that the military was serious taking back power. Aaron connelly an analyst with the international institute for strategic studies spoke to npr. This week you said that the military in myanmar has claimed there were irregularities with voter lists in the country's november election week william ethnic areas and that if the election voter lists were scrutinized more closely than that. They would have had a chance of winning more seats in the national legislature again. No specific evidence for that claim. The military is a powerful force in myanmar. It controls the country's ministry of defence home affairs and all other security forces. This week's coup is not its first time in the international spotlight more than seven hundred sires.

Myanmar coup: Aung San Suu Kyi detained as military seizes control

"U n rights chief.

Ms bachelet was alarmed by reports. That at least forty five people have been detained including sang. Succi and president win meant and called for their immediate release. She also highlighted reports of journalists being harassed or attacked along with restrictions on the internet and social media. actions that would restrict information and freedom of expression at a critical time for the country. The un chief voiced his grave concern regarding the declared transfer of all legislative executive and judicial powers to the military describing them as a serious blow to democratic reforms in myanmar development follows escalating tensions between the government and the military since last november's general elections when the achieved national league for democracy secured over eighty percent of the seats according to media reports.

Rakhine and ruin: insurgency in Myanmar

"On Tuesday. A driver for the world. Health Organization was killed in rock kind state in Myanmar. After his car was hit by gunfire the attack took place in a region where government troops have been locked in fierce fighting with the Arakan Army which wants greater autonomy for the state and for the kind of Arakan people countries including Britain and America have called for an end to fighting amid the cove nineteen pandemic but clashes have intensified governments. Flailing response seems to be boosting. The Arakan Army and the and army declared a month-long ceasefire but it was rejected by the government as unrealistic. Charlie McCann Economists Southeast Asia correspondent fighting between the army and the Burmese military has escalated over the last two months as has a war of words that they've been fighting. Each group has blamed the other for firing at the. Who car which was carrying swabs from patients to be tested for Krona virus. So this conflict get it start then. The conflict erupted on January fourth. Two Thousand Nineteen not coincidentally Myanmar's Independence Day about three hundred and fifty fighters from the army attacked for police posts in northern. Rakhine state killing thirteen officers. Now there had been skirmishes between the American army and the Burmese military before that but the insurgents had never been quite so brazen in response the government. Which of course is led by Aung San Succi a Nobel Peace Prize winner instructed the army to crush the rebels and the military has since deployed an estimated. Fifteen thousand to twenty thousand troops and deployed heavy artillery airstrikes hidden and even naval patrols despite all this the economy is actually making some headway. And so what are the stakes in this fight? What is it that the army wants with African army are ethnic rock kind? Buddhists who are longing for independence. They feel neglected by the central government for decades. Rakhine is one of me and Mars poorest states and the advent of civilian rule with Aung San Suu Dci in two thousand sixteen Only exacerbated tensions the Eric a National Party won a majority of parliamentary seats in the state of Rakhine and they believed that Aung San Suu Cheese Party. The National League for Democracy would let it nominate the state's chief minister instead the ANALII appointed one of their own and the a. n. p. and and many were kind sell. This is a great betrayal. That sense of embitterment deepened in two thousand eighteen. When the police killed seven protesters and arrested that. Npr's chairman all of which contributed to further radicalizing the raccoons and this is a state in. Myanmar. There's not unfamiliar with with sectarian tensions. That's right in two thousand seventeen. The Burmese military launched its clearance operations against the hinge a persecuted Muslim. Ethnic Minority Walser lived in Rakhine state. The kind the hinge Are Two of many ethnic. Minorities got it across me and mark who are discriminated against and are advocating for fighting for more freedoms if not independence and ask for the conflict between the Arakan army on the national military. How how's that going? The military is suffering terrible casualties. And the army are are humiliating. The military I conducting hundreds of duck shins of politicians businessmen civil servants and indeed soldiers the military's accustomed to siege warfare not to the kinds of tactics being deployed by the army which hides the jungle but also operates an urban areas which takes pot shots at our patrols also does all these brazen things like bombings and abductions and to the military's really floundering. It's response the army's successes really driven in large part by the group's Commander Thuan Rot nine. I am the leader of Argon. Army Major General Plan Renai educated. He's charismatic he's young. We have lost our rights. The rights of the indigenous people in contrast to many of the leaders of the countries other insurgencies who has been described to me by an analyst as comprising the FISA Club of guerrilla leaders. The commander recently called on his followers to throw off the shackles of Burmese. Racism and colonialism. So uses this very rousing language. Harks back to the long periods when kind state was a glorious independent kingdom. Every American has a dream in their heart is slickness is mirrored. In the group's social media videos which feature attractive young soldiers declaring their love for their homeland and engaging in wholesome wrestling matches we will never ever give up and and so with its army on the back foot. Then how has the government responded to this slick operation having handedly in June? It blocked mobile Internet service to about one million people in Rakhine engine states according to Human Rights. Watch this is one of the world's longest government imposed Internet blackouts last month. That also blocked access several news websites. That report on the conflict as well as designating the Eric Armenia. A terrorist organization that then enabled police to charge journalists who interviewed. That can army's commander in chief with violating the Counter Terrorism Law and we're kind civilians are really coming under fire. Amnesty International claims that the military has been shooting indiscriminately at recline towns and has been torturing and murdering civilians. We know that more than one. Hundred thousand civilians have been displaced by the fighting and now a meteoroid reports shows that forty two civilians have died since March twenty third and so again in our we have this example of the military taking an extremely heavy handed approach against its own citizens under the watch of Aung San. Suu She I mean. Her reputation suffered greatly after the crisis. How do you see this crisis? Playing out on Sun suits. He won election twenty-six teen on her promise to bring peace to the country the fact that her government has instructed the military to crush the rebels as she put it has designated them a terrorist organization. There's no way that she'll be able to bring about peace with methods like those to me. It looks as if the conflict is only going to escalate the atkin armies ten unflicting so much damage the government will have to make some concessions and indeed has over the past six months more than two hundred hand government employees and Chen state which is just north of re kind. A lot of the fighting has taken place have resigned after being threatened by its fighters. Now the rebels don't have the firepower to defeat the government militarily but they might not need to if they can inflict enough humiliation. The government might decide to retreat from the fight and seek a political settlement. Either way see piece for the possible future curly. Thank you very much for your time. Thank you

What is geo-engineering and how could it help tackle climate change?

"It sounds like something out of a movie system of satellites controller with a movie with a really big disaster detention for catastrophic weather events global scale a general store but the idea of manipulating our climate in order to survive is a real thing it's being developed by scientists right now and it's called Solar Geo Geo Engineering. The problem is it's risky I'm Gabrielle. Sierra and this is why it matters today should we dim the sky a dire warning this morning from climate experts a UN panel says governments around the world must take rapid action to curb rising temperatures plummet. Climate is now changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilization very liveability. Our planet is extinct not in ten years twenty years thirty years but right now so solar measuring is the idea that humans might deliberately liberally alter the climate somehow to change the energy balance of the earth the reduce some of the climate change that comes from accumulated carbon dioxide. They can't undo all the environmental risks of carbon dioxide Maybe it won't even undo hardy. Any of them. We really don't know very well but it best it reduces some of them mm-hmm. That's David Keith. He's a professor of both engineering and public policy at Harvard. He's also one of the world's leading researchers on Geo Engineering so I've had a big onstage argument with Al Gore and factors did few years ago. where he I think his underlying position was that it was dangerous? Even talk about Solar Jewish assuring because it would destroy emissions cuts to me the worst way to handle this is to keep the kind of Tabu intact to not bring us is out in the open to keep not talking about it and then to get to a situation. Where even if we don't talk about it some country moves forward to deployment and we have under crisis to make decisions both about the technology and about governance? Today people are starting to talk about Solar Geo engineering a little bit and if you want to know what it is you have have to start at the beginning with climate change. So here goes the most important driver of climate changes energy use fossil fuels coal and gas and oil when they're burned to provide us all the energy that allows one hundred world to work. They put carbon dioxide in the air and that increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere makes the atmosphere try or heat and it tends to warm up the climate. A good way to understand this is to think of carbon in the atmosphere as a huge blanket covering birth it traps in the heat the more carbon in our atmosphere the hotter it gets under the blanket and that causes all sorts of changes so the most obvious one is warming warming but it will say melting ice sheets and chicken race sea levels will increase the intensity of extreme storms and rainfall events. All all those collectively will produce a series of human environmental impacts and that's where solar geo engineering comes in. But how does it work. Give me just like a step by step of that process. Sure so in a very basic way we wanna get aerosols of some sort into the upper grabs fear. Probably with specially designed planes. This is achieved. SUCCI is the research governance and public engagement fellow. Hello at the Union of concerned scientists. They would admit these aerosols which then stay in the atmosphere for on average of a year or two and then we would need to continue that process again and again to maintain the temperature. We have reduced so aerosol like hairspray basically but a different different chemical compound. Okay so these planes would fly up super high release chemical compound that would then make a cloud essentially but ah more dispersed layer that would cover the whole Globe and then do what and so that layer would reflect sunlight. The idea idea here. Is that when we bounce sunlight back into space we reduce the amount of incoming heat. So you'd have to keep doing this over and have to keep doing this has it's been tested Ed. This has not been tested. The only test we have is a natural analogue of a volcano. So the the most recent volcano that exploited that got aerosols into the stratosphere was Mount Pinatubo Nineteen ninety-one and we notice that there was about a half degree of cooling that lasted for a few months so people just look at that and they were like. Oh what's do that. I think people like. Oh that's really interesting. I think we should look into that further and then that that research led into this space as a potential way to help cool the planet. We can't just wait for volcanoes to erupt so scientists are trying to figure out synthetic ways to do the same thing and aerosols in the stratosphere are just one of the options there other ideas of manipulating cirrus clouds ways as you could reduce the amount of these thin high clouds which act as heat trappers. puzzles to modify Rian stratus clouds. Kind of Lok Lousy off say say the coast of Seattle to make them a little more effective and finally at least in principle you could imagine humanity constructing some kind of reflective shield in space between between the earth and the sun aside from these methods. There's another one that involves recreating woolly mammoths. Yep you heard that right woolly mammoths. Another plan involves spreading. Sand oversee is to keep it from melting but the one method. That's getting the most attention. And the one we're talking about today is atmospheric aerosols aerosols and a big part of this conversation is risk. Scientific risks are not willing understood. We've done a lot of modeling. The space face in there is general ideas of how it could affect precipitation or extreme weather but it's not a robust understanding and especially at you know a small enough enough scale for different countries to know how it might affect them. So what are the chances that messing with our climate this way will have side effects and unintended consequences on says it's one hundred percent certain that something you do with this scale we'll have side effects an unintended consequences. Anyone who thinks that this is some magic fix that will perfectly GLI reduced climate risks and work exactly the way we expect anybody who thinks that is not. I think we can do lots of research and we could learn a lot but at the end there will still be lots of unknowns. Are there any known risks already. Oh lots of known risks so it could deplete. The ozone layer could change the circulation the stratosphere it could cause air pollution. Because we're talking about adding aerosol so the atmosphere we know those are pollutants by blocking sunlight. It could reduce crop productivity. There is a big range of risks for each of the risks. I said they're now quite a few scientific papers. Have begun to really look at those quantitatively and for each the rest. I said it looks like based on early research that the actual scale of those risks is pretty small compared to the benefits of reduced harms through the reduction climate change. But I wouldn't leap inclusion that we know that the risks are small compared to the benefits. I think we can say will call on its is. There's enough reason into believe it could dramatically reduce human. And if I'm honest is century that it deserves serious research so what. What are the chances that some regions will suffer more from the consequences of Geo engineering than others because if someone just decides that they're going to do it it's not just gonNa Hover over one country it will affect the entire world so we know for sure? There are ways that you ensuring could be that were produced hugely equal destructive destructive impacts so for example you only did it in the northern hemisphere and reflected sunlight in the northern hemisphere. Put ourselves in there and not in the Southern Hemisphere. You would shift the band of rainfall and the tropics with big big impacts. We know for sure that would be destructive. The evidence is that if it's done in a way that is globally uniform. You aim to have roughly the same because radio forcing same amount of sunlight being reflected almost almost everywhere north to South East to west. If you do that and if you do it in a way where you're not doing too much you're using it to take the edge off the the risk the pain gene for Co two in the air emit circumstance. The evidence for current models is that actually no major regions are left worse off in all regions have significantly reduce describe at risk. So you just do a little bit Geo Engineering. Not you know a ton. Well yes. The dose makes the poison

"Innocent when you dream by Tom Waits. This is democracy now in a major ruling the UN International Court justice at at The Hague has ordered Burma to take all measures within its power to protect Roh Kinga Muslims from genocide. The court issued the ruling Thursday calling the six hundred thousand and wrote hinge remaining in Burma also known as Myanmar quote extremely vulnerable to military violence. The quartered Burma to report regularly. Late to the tribunal about its progress the rulings sharpe rebuke of Burma's de facto leader. Aung San Suu. Who last month asked the court to drop the genocide case ace against Burma Aung? SAN SUCCI is Nobel Prize laureate. She spent over a decade finding against the Burmese military. was imprisoned by hi them. She's now defending them. Gambia breath genocide case to the international court accusing Burma trying to quote destroy. There were a group in whole or in part by the use of mass murder rape and other forms of sexual violence Burmese military killed and raped thousands of routine and force more than seven hundred thousand to flee into neighboring Bangladesh in a brutal army crackdown. Crackdown in two thousand seventeen. This is wro- Hanger Refugee and novel Hassan Reacting to the court's ruling from Bangladesh though beholden vote dental my for a long term the government of Myanmar tortured owned your people. The torture too much raped our mothers and sisters killer Armando after a long time can be filed a case on behalf of the range of people in the icy J court by the grace of Allah. We gotta rule and behalf of the hinge people and for that we are very grateful to the Gambian government. Now we wait to go back to our country with our rights well for more. We go to Alicante Spain where we're joined by Reed Brody Council for Human Rights Watch via democracy now video stream. Can you talk about the significance of the ruling of the International International Court of Justice. Well you know this is the most important court in the world intervening in one of the worst atrocity mass atrocity situations of our time while the atrocities are still happening so it doesn't really get more significant than that as you mentioned. There are seven hundred thousand row hinges. Who have been displaced into Bangala dash hundreds of thousands in camps in command mar now? Their situation obviously doesn't just change overnight but as as as the young row as a young girl hang and poet a said my brothers and sisters the door to us. This has opened today so I think you know this is. This is a huge huge decision. And as you said it's a huge rebuke to on-song Suci into the military in Burma. Can you explain. That sounds to chase position. I mean she is is a Nobel peace laureate. She's long now. Defended the Burmese military in its genocide against the people. The row hindu-muslim the Muslims and actually went to The Hague to testify on the military's behalf the military which imprisoned her and she fought against four decades. Ah Codes well obviously she she. She's thrown her lot in with the military and she I think she was showing domestic public opinion in that she hates the row Hinga as much as many others. Do I mean. Let's remember that this is one of the most hated persecuted minorities not in the world and I was reminded by this decision of the genocide conviction in Guatemala against Rio so smart in which the the Highland Mayan Indians among the most marginalized people in America's not as marginalized as zero hang up were recognized as a group and their and their rights were protected as victims of genocide. I think the same thing is happening today. On never mentioned and the government of Myanmar their response to the yesterday's ruling never uses either the word row Hinga but the court the International Court of Justice to highest court in the world said there were Hanger Group and they're entitled to protection from genocide. I think that's that's you know that's a major moment not just for the row Hinga but for Internet now notice the enforcement mechanism. I mean this court the International Court of Justice apart of the UN you went. What does this mean well? Theoretically the decisions are binding and they're transmitted to the Security Council. Now we know the Security Council China has veto and so the Security Council will not enforce the judgment but the court did sit first of all the court established a reporting requirement. Every said the first in four months the government of Burma has to account for what it's doing and then every six months thereafter drafter. So it's almost like a court supervision of what's going on the General Assembly can take it up. The Human Rights Council in Geneva can take it up. I think the weather weather Myanmar applies this decision. It's going very much depend on the international pressure That will come. I mean they were told not to destroy evidence. Well we can see and we have seen in the past through aerial photos where they're destroying evidence so so this is going to be you know it's obviously going to take a lot But there is an enforcement possibility and a mechanism that's going to depend and not international pressure. And can you talk about Gambia. Bringing this case the speed with which the I. C. J. Ruled and what about other cases in the world where so many have died for example in Syria. What's happening with the IRS? And China of any any of these cases been broader even what the. US is doing in the Middle East and Iraq war etcetera and the killing of Qassem Suleimani any. Well of course you know the in terms of Gambia. I have to say you know I work in Gambia. Work closely. With the Attorney General there and and Gambia took this case on behalf of the Organization of Islamic cooperation. To protect the Moslems row Hinga Gotcha and the Attorney General of the Gambia. An happened to have been a prosecutor of the Rwandan genocide and he. He felt that he was seeing the same thing happened and he took the leading as a wonderful back story. That really legitimizes. This very a rare instance of south South Solidarity Gambia. Slow Gambia sticking up for a minority all the way across the world. It's interesting that you mentioned China and the workers because the when the organ oh I see the Organization of Islamic. The cooperation with should be standing up as well for the minority in China instead because of China's not only military might right but also China has the unprecedented campaign by China to silence international critics. It was the topic. Actually Human Rights Watch World Report last week the OIC Muslim countries in the world actually adopted a REP statement praising in China for how they care for the Muslim minority so in many ways this is a question of political balance of power. In this case. Burma's power is not the same internationally as China's the case of Syria a again. There's a veto Russia. Syria has not ratified these conventions and Russia can veto and China. China can veto any accountability mechanism at that level. Now there are a lot of cases around the world where individual countries in France Germany and other places have arrested and are prosecuting people Syrian officials who have engaged in repression? But of course it's not the same as going to the state and going to the top. We want to thank you so much. Sure being with US Reed Brody Council for Human Rights. Watch when we come back. We look at a major victory mom for housing in Oakland California back in thirty seconds.

Why is Aung San Suu Kyi at the International Court of Justice

"Awarding someone the Nobel Prize for peace is always tempting. Fate saw cha the vagaries of human affairs. Yesterday's warmonger is tomorrow's peacemaker and vice versa. That it's not really the Norwegian Nobel Committees Fault when Pulse Charity Makes Mockery of some of their judgements. When you give a piece Gong to someone like Henry Kissinger oh Yasser Arafat? It's just a risk you run. And it is nevertheless startling to see an actual Nobel peace laureate appearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague to defend the government they lead against allegations of genocide. It's pretty much the one thing that isn't supposed to happen. History had given us the opportunity to give up our best just for a cause in which we believed when the Nobel Committee chose to honor me. The road had chosen of my own free will aw became less lonely path to follow sang suci daughter of the founder of modern Myanmar Aung San and a formidable politician diplomat and and activist in her own. Right won the Nobel Peace Prize in Nineteen ninety-one at the time she was rivaled only by Nelson Mandela as a universally admired Royat. Avatar of all. That was good displaying exemplary courage in resisting. All that was bad. She led the National League for Democracy as it faced down only terrifying and ruthless military GIONTA which had turned Myanma into North Korea with Palm. Trees saying SUCI spent most of the period between Nineteen nineteen ninety nine and two thousand and ten under house arrest. She was a hero aside from the Nobel Peace Prize. She was awarded the Sakharov Prize. US Congressional Channel Gold Medal and Presidential Medal of freedom an honorary order of Australia. Honorary Citizenship of Canada and Amnesty International's ambassador of conscience since award. Luke pestle made a film about her. U2 wrote a song about and in time she triumphed the NLD won a landslide election victory in two thousand and fifteen though denied the presidency on a technicality. She became state councillor effectively. Myanmar's prime minister it. It was hailed worldwide as a victory for decency determination and patience and now she's denying that she is some kind of an accessory to crimes against humanity he sang Succi has been fair to say on a journey. These ban mind this complex situation and the challenge to sovereignty and security already in our country when you're assessing the intent of those who attempted to deal with the rebellion. Surely under the circumstances genocidal decider intent cannot be only hypothesis loan and it is important to be clear that while Aung Sang. SUCCI is in The Hague. She is not in the dark. She is appearing voluntarily and has not been charged with any crime the allegation before the ICJ EJ is against her country. Not Her the case has been brought by the Gambia. Backed by the fifty-seven members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Asian a coterie which includes several nations who might want to pause before mounting their high horses where human rights are concerned. The allegation is essentially essentially that Myanmar's recent persecution of the Hindu people Myanmar's Muslim minority. Who lived mostly in the country's raccoon state amounts to genocide this? This is a term with specific legal meanings and it will be for the court to determine if events in Myanmar meet the threshold. What is known is bad enough? Enough since two thousand and sixteen perhaps a million ranger have fled Myanmar mostly to neighboring Bangladesh journalists NGOs and the UN win have reported a consistent pattern of atrocious violence much of it directed at civilians not excluding children Myanmar's military known as has the top Madore have consistently claimed that they are waging a counter insurgency against Islamist terrorists though Sang Suci does not directly command the Tatmadaw. Aw this is also the line that she has held. The most sympathetic imaginable interpretation of aren't sang Suu Cheese behavior. And it's a reach is that that she is still in some respects the prisoner of the same military which once held her under house arrest. She may have calculated. This is a compromise. She has to to make to maintain such democracy as me unmanned now has that if she takes hold in the military the military will once again take charge of the country. This is a question unlikely to interest the hundreds of thousands over hinge in now wondering if they'll ever be able to go home again and they of course are the ones who have have survived the Tatmadaw's pogroms justice for the victims. If it is coming at all maybe years away

That's the name of it would withhold certain non law enforcement federal grant funds from so-called, sanctuary cities like San Francisco in New York Sacramento's one as well. The city of Sacramento had a policy or rather has had a policy about prohibiting police, and other city employees from asking anyone about their immigration status since one thousand nine hundred five and the city council. Reaffirmed that status two years ago. Tighter rules for police use of force or one step closer to becoming law in California. Rob Harris from the police protective league explains why law enforcement organizations like his no longer oppose the legislation. Our biggest steer was paving the way for officers split-second decisions to the evaluated with hindsight. That would then be used to criminally prosecute them language was dropped that would have required officers to take specific steps before using deadly force. A law enforcement was worried that a so called checklist would make it easier to prosecute officers. Bill does allow lethal force investigations to examine what actions police took before shooting current law. Only allows investigators to look at the moment, lethal force was used the bills also supported by several prominent black lives matter, activists, a separate Bill will provide funding to train officers on these proposed standards. President Trump has indicated that he might consider pardons for some service members accused or convicted of war crimes, including murder. Some service groups have raised objections. Now, President Trump says he is not meeting need decisions about pardoning military personnel who might have been charged with serious crimes.

"I'm Carol hills. Two Reuters journalists are released in Myanmar after spending more than five hundred days in jail for their reporting on the Rwanda crisis. This activist is familiar with the prison where they were held and he's not like the prison in Europe oriented state. It's also how the documentary surviving R Kelly encouraged many Ethiopian women to speak up about the abuse. They suffered from the older men in their lives. Water pick some stories that we got as bid people or they're on coal or someone who's twenty thirty four years older than them. Plus the enduring legacy of Argentina's Abe Perron on the one hundred anniversary of her birth. Those stories and more ahead on the world. I'm Carol hills. And this is the world thousands of prisoners were released from jail in Myanmar today. It's a custom around this time of year when the country celebrates its new year among the people released were to journalists for Reuters while loan and Chow so who were arrested in two thousand seventeen for breaking Myanmar's official secrets act I'm so happy for them. However, we also have to remember that from the first place this journalists should not be arrested, and they shouldn't spend more than a year inside the prison. That's Rohana activist way way new will hear more from her just ahead while loan and chose imprisonment drew attention to the ongoing persecution of Rohingya Muslims that began in two thousand seventeen the world's Patrick win explains. How the reporters got in trouble with Myanmar government day helped to uncover a massacre? Ten Rohana men were killed by soldiers and villagers and dumped into a grave on these two journalists help. To expose that it made the army look bad. And so then they were contacted by someone within security forces. Who said, hey, I've gotta show you something. They went out to meet that person, the person handed them a sheet of papers. And then within minutes, they were arrested for having secret documents in their possession and these two journalists Wallone, he's thirty three choice. Oh, ooh. Twenty nine. What is behind these releases the court said you're pardoned, but it didn't say you're innocent. And I think there's a really big difference there. I think what me and Mars government is looking for from. This is a big hug, you know, something to look like they're sticking up for human rights. There are dozens of other journalists and bloggers still in prison under baseless charges in also the government of Yanmar still thinks in general journalists should apologize for the way that they've covered the brutal ethnic purge of this Rohingya minority group one of the most persecuted groups in the world, they think that the way the journalists have covered this. Atrocity has been unfair. So I I don't necessarily see a big turnaround in the government's disposition towards journalist or the situation as a whole who are these six thousand five hundred twenty prisoners who are being released today. I mean, what do they represent their from all sorts of walks of life. This tends to happen. Every year every other year and Yanmar they'll do a mass pardoning of prisoners normally people who are in there for more garden variety crimes. So, you know, you'll have this mass outpouring of prisoners, and it makes the government look good, and they probably need to release the strain in their prisons. Anyway. Should we assume that unsung Succi is behind it? I mean in terms of the release of these two journalists, I don't know exactly what prompted these guys to make the list of the pardoned. I can't tell you that there's been enormous pressure. These two reporters recently got the Pulitzer prize even in the US State Department under President Trump, you don't think of them as pushing hard for the rights of journalists. But they have spoken up about these two journalists Mike Pence has brought this up to the government. Nikki Haley, the former US ambassador to the UN. She has pushed back on this. What is actually the sort of twisted catch twenty two?.

Unco officials have used the word genocide to describe what has happened to them. So what kind of foreign investor would Wade into this complex mess?

If recline is just written off as a total. No go zone. The government isn't wrong. She says people there do need jobs badly and foreign investment can help if it's not exploiting people. But if you do go near rebel turf to build a hotel or factory don't be shocked.

A comedian is a leading contender for president of Ukraine just one unusual detail about elections coming up there this weekend. The BBC's John Fischer is following. This election. He's in eastern, Ukraine. Let's start with a comedian candidate Vladimir resilience gay. You've met him. What's his deal? Why's he running for president? Yes. A pretty extraordinary story at flood NC has got no political experience whatsoever. An extraordinary thing about him is that he's become famous here in Ukraine through a television program and in that television program he plays the president on the TV show. He's a principled honest president during the right thing and his message on the campaign trail as basically being if you vote for me, if I become president, you're pretty much gonna get what you see in that TV series, and for now and the way it's looking according to the opinion polls, it looks like that message is working and we could be set to see the comedian become president. What do you cranium is like about his TV show that suggests they're going to like him as president? Well, I think firstly Ukrainians are ready for a change. They want something different the other contenders in this race. I saw how he put it from from the old school of Ukrainian politics at the image. That has been very much projected by Mr. Zealand skin, his campaign team is that he's fresh face. He's different. He hasn't really been very specific about any policies. Indeed, many people say he doesn't really have a very solid grasp on on policy matters a toll. So the linski is the splashy outsider in ba- lead. But there's also president Petra Pora Shangqiu running for reelection and former prime minister Yulia Timoshenko in the race to what are they campaigning on? What we've got a massive ballot brushing there are thirty nine candidates. But yeah, you've mentioned the top three there. Petropars shaneco. He's the current president of Ukraine. He's basically campaigning on the platform that you need an experienced guy like myself to face off with Russia because Ukraine is effectively fighting a war with Russia in eastern, Ukraine. So why take a chance on any of these? Other people Yulia Timoshenko. Well, if you've been following Ukrainian politics at all over the last ten years, you might remember as a woman with very distinctive blonde hair..

I mean, it's not like ROY dough is entirely without claiming he's rationale is that under the terms of the Venezuelan constitution. If the presidency is vacant then the person occupying.

I mean, this is a cat. This is a catastrophe by by any measure. We're not talking about armed intervention. We're talking about someone acting. Pursuant to a constitutional process and then holding themselves up for ratification in the international community. Okay. Well, let's look now at the United Arab Emirates specifically Boudin currently hosting a visit by pope Francis. The UI is a big part of the people beat than might seem immediately apparent there being many Catholics among the US's communities of expert Labor's especially Filipinos tomorrow, one hundred thirty five thousand people are expected to attend to people Masset Abu Dhabi's Zayed sports city today. However Francis is meeting with Abu Dhabi crown prince Shaikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Al Niane and various religious Panjandrums that has been an amount of wondering where the Francis might mentioned privately or publicly the US's participation in Saudi Arabia's pointless rampage in Yemen will the US's generally sub optimal record on human rights. Peter what thority does the pope have some next not just somewhere let the anywhere at all? This point. Why do people listen to him? He has an awful lot of people who are Roman Catholics who consider him the voice of God on planet earth. I mean that that's that's the thirty that goes beyond most. I mean in the case of the UA, there's there's something like a million Catholics. There are a lot of them are Filipino migrant workers Indian migrant workers, and there are a lot of people who want to hear what he has to say. No, no, no question. His reputation is not what it was a couple of years ago before the extent of this global sex scandal and the widespread perception that the pope has participated in a in a really horrific cover up. I moreover, let's remember there was just back in November twenty seventeen when the pope visited Myanmar. Then in the midst of the massacre of of Rohan Joe who were being driven from the from the country. And he sat on the stage. Next to onsite Succi. And did not mention the ranger. So I mean, certainly he's dealing with significant reputational issues compared to what he he enjoyed. When he first took power Mary. We'll we'll talk more shortly about pope Francis. Actual record as a human rights advocate. But would it actually make any difference? If tomorrow, he wants to stand up in front of a hundred and thirty five thousand people at Zayed sports city and say that the US participation in the war in Yemen should cease that it's it's it's not doing anybody. Any good least of all the people of Yemen, and they should knock it off wounded actually make any difference to anything. Well, I think given that quite a lot has actually been set both in public and private and it hasn't had the slightest effect. It's hard to see how it would have an effect. But it would set it would resonate around the world. I mean, he would have a platform, and it would be may be. More public more out there than any of the interventions that have been made so far I sort of think we're unlikely to hear that. But that's a different matter. Pretty you mentioned the his failure to mention the range of people at least directly when he was sharing that stage without saying Suci in Myanmar. In two thousand seventeen is the simplest explanation that fits the facts where pope Francis is concerned that whatever moral authority does go along with the office Yorkie pies..

"Want to want to speculate, but I would say that any clearance fair. Reading of the evidence submitted a trial of the facts here show. This is men are innocent. And it's journalists this. There's a lot at stake because journalists in Myanmar has everywhere need to be able to report the news without being a subject to false imprisonment. What about the outside pressure that is coming to bear on the government in? There are statements from the British Foreign Secretary others today, saying look, you know, unsung Suci in particular, you need to get involved, and you need to look at your own history. And what this verdict means for democracy in your country. Do you think enough pressure is coming the commentary, the scrutiny that this case has rightly attracted from around the world has been noted, and I think is very important. As as he said on sunset. She herself has a record of standing up historically for rule of law democracy for a free press. Those are the issues very much at stake here in the past is open for the government of being Marta in this injustice, sensitive the right side. Kevin Kroenke, the Asia regional editor for Reuters will our south East Asia correspondent Jonathan head has been following this story he told me what it led to the journalists imprisonment. Well, they were arrested in December two thousand seventeen after gain to meet simple. Lease offices who'd invited them to a restaurant to receive some documents. They were investigating one of several massacres in recline state during the military operation against the Rangers. This was one of the more interesting investigations because they had very good context. Individ- where this massacre had supposedly taken place and with the security forces, and they've been promised more documents from these police officers to help back up that report. When they got there. They were handed the documents they say they were arrested immediately before they could even read them and charged with violating the country's official secrets act. They went on trial during the trial. One police officer actually testified that the whole thing had been a setup essentially to silence them, and he himself is now in prison. Having testified ultimately in their favor. But none of that carried any weight with the judge. He sentenced them to seven years in prison last September. Despite what's become a very vocal global campaign pushing for their release a vocal global campaign. What about in Myanmar itself? How is it viewed? Well, interestingly there is actually a lot of sympathy for these journalists, which I think is surprising because very few people in Myanmar sympathize with all the media coverage of the ranger crisis. There's a very strong hostility to the way in which other media have portrayed the hinges, and ultimately these two journalists. Hello there Burmese, we're working for a foreign news organization. Reuters and had produced some of the most embarrassing revelations about what the military, did you do see a lot of comment on social media and in other media as well recognizing that an injustice has been done in putting these young men with young families into prison for seven years merely for exposing what went on because almost everybody thinks that's the reason they're in prison, nobody where he buys this idea that they were trying to release secrets that would would be dangerous to the state. And again today, we've heard direct appeals from senior figures around the world to unsung Succi is she their best hope. Hope for release will I would say, she's their only hope they can actually, of course, take this appeal process up to the supreme court, obviously says who she does have to consider the military their anger. I would imagine their embarrassment or a big reason why this very harsh verdict was imposed on these journalists at the same time the president who in effect. She has power. She's the defacto leader of the country. Does have the power to pardon them. She has been very stubborn. I mean, not just in refusing to consider pardoning them, but actually in defending the verdicts in saying that they justified on so many areas where people thought she might be more compassionate. She's been completely unyielding over the whole range of crisis and completely defensive of both her country and her military's reputation. And we just haven't seen any sign that she's willing to back down from that. But know, the Toronto criticism over these verdicts in particular is a very strong one. And it it it is not stopped an identikit will. And that was the BBC's south. East Asia correspondent Jonathan head. Will they or won't they.
