"So if anything, I don't have any information to that effect, and with certainty that national defense forces would not be targeting public utilization or infrastructure that is in service to the public. How worried are you about the prospect of a long insurrection by TPLF forces? TPLF, unlike the way that it's been touted over the past few weeks for being battle hardened is really not. The old guard are still under the illusion off their guerilla warfare that they had engaged in back in the eighties. However, a majority off the two great people are really exhausted from that. And what you witnessed over the past three years specifically is while the TPL of all guards were much more rooted and focused on the political instability is that they were behind to disturb lies. Ethiopia, There hasn't been a lot of focus for residents within within that. The region. So the economy is not doing that great. There hasn't been a lot of focus on essential services as well. So the people have too great a really exhausted and there isn't that mo mentum from within the region that would support the TPL left for this kind of a long, drawn out altercations. Right. Well, it's Yeah, it's difficult for us to ask people their because, of course, you know many journalists, you know, can't get access and we can't We can't communicate with them. But I suppose the question is, How are you going to persuade people into grow to support the central government? This is not a matter of persuasion per se. There's been a lot of public consultations that have been had with Ethiopians of two great origin who are in the capital city as well. But now going into the two gray region, the Provisional administration, which has been set up constitutionally by the House of Federation is already active. They're already on the ground and one of their primary tasks over the six months off the duration of the state of emergency. Is to set up you know the institutions that have been betrayed by the TPL left because some off their critical services were betrayed by the leadership that had been put in there that's run off. Leaving. The service is unattended for the for their own population as well. So setting up humanitarian, um, provisions setting up services. That are key in the area and key aspect off that is also engaging in dialogue with the people of to cry now wanting to really understand about the provisional administration off the guy that has been set up is that it's not a foreign body, but it's constituted or comprises political parties from the Tigray region and people off to dry, who are now working in favor off addressing the needs off the two great people. Was building, they say, UM, press secretary for the European Prime Minister RB Ahmed, or the Fighting in northern Ethiopia has forced tens of thousands of people to flee mostly to neighboring Sudan. Filippo Grandi is the U. N High commissioner for Refugees sees in Sudan and he's been visiting the refugee camps and described the situation. People continue to come yesterday we had about 800 crossing the Sudanese border the day before when I was there for 550. So it's not the same figures as we saw a couple of weeks ago, but still substantive numbers. Off People cross think onboard. Sudan has kept borders open. I think this needs to be noted and commended in these difficult times, in spite of all its challenges, But Sudan needs help. Of course in the response, it doesn't have the resources. Yesterday, the U. N put out an appeal for $150 million for six months, and it is important to respond. The donor's respond quickly because we do need to step up the response. Both at the border and in the location that has been identified by the Sudanese government to move people toe in order to be away from the More dangerous areas. I'm afraid time's a little bit limited. But I do need to ask you about this. These reports that thousands of every train refugees who'd lived in to grind that they've been abducted by Eritrean Troops. Do you know what's happened to them? No. Unfortunately, we have no access anymore, so those camps in integrate, but it is a great concern. The treatment off those 100,000 every trend. Refugees if European has always hosted them with great generosity, So I keep appealing to the federal government of Ethiopia for this hospitality to continue. This is their responsibility, and they need to continue to uphold it. I am very worried about that. But if it is true, and and is there a tray and troops have crossed over the border I mean, is there anything you can do? I I There is nothing I can do it, especially given that we don't have access to the area. But all I can say at this point it it would be a major violation of international norms. If this had happened, But I don't have any confirmation that this has happened other than the reports that you have seen Filippo Grandi, the U. N High Commissioner for refugees, and we'll be hearing more about the fate off those Eritrean refugees..

"Oh Boy Am I. I started off thinking. Wash our human rights. Because like you I wanted to go very broad and then narrow in on what I actually picked so I find this interesting close in. The face of a book called maclear. It's an international human rights law book and it's as human rights mean different things to different people from the woman on the street to the U. N. High Commissioner for Human Rights from the local human rights activists to the government official. Each of us has a different conception of the origin purpose and function of human rights. So a good head space to get into before considering anything else. Human Rights I think is something along. The lines of the first rule is there are no rules because I love human rights. It's it's as Alana mentioned earlier. I I've studied it a bit more and I really love it put. It frustrates me beyond belief. So this is a reoccurring theme one of the first pitfalls of thinking about in human rights in an international context is there's this agreement that prevails thought the framework on basic conception. We have of what human rights are are fundamentally subject to Western bias so we think are essential human rights. This comes back to like the moral of the story for the first couple episodes where we kept surmising. The lowest fake doesn't really mean anything so it's been aggie dot like the imposition of human rights is a neo colonialism venture of sorts And these actually ageements from public international law scholars that the Western influence on human rights is so large dotted foxy impossible to imagine what it would be like with this Western influence which is just it's headbutting. Bush so just yet remember. There are no rules. They're they're really they don't find it. It's just a hideout no but it's it comes back to like it comes back to as humans. We try him put labels on things. That are really just things that like. We feel like we feel human rights. We like we feel inherently some of the time. What should be a human right? But it's very hard to explain to them. Undertake weigh the sources really not as straightforward as we try and label. It as another issue can be. We try to legally justify what we have moral justifications for which is tricky so right can be seen in two basic ways you can see them as the universal natural phenomenon that are that are innate to human beings so if by virtue of being a person you have human rights or it can be viewed as this contractual protection afforded to you by your government so not really universal on practically. That's an easier way to think about us. I I like the idea of natural rights that you know. We're just people and people have rights. Yeah I think I told my explanation. Lean towards anyway realistically. It's easier to think in a practical science dot. The government is affording you these protections which is an idea so the origins of human rights. I think it's an interesting. I suppose question because there is no starting point and Arjun humanoids albeit in a slightly different guides can be traced as far back as ancient Babylon aren seventeen hundred BC which is a long time ago. Some scholars wrongly slash the magnetic AirAsia. Which is a thirteen century. Document just stopped the King of England having absolute power over his nobles objects dot sometimes light is like the beginning of human rights in a modern ISH context. There is a lot in the sixteenth and seventeenth century. Bache scholar is believing rights. We're just a social contract with you. And your government and natural rights really became prevalent as a result of the American revolution and Subsequent Declaration of Independence. So ever knows you know those famous words. We hold these treats to resolve evident that all men are created equal that they are indeed with certain unalienable rights that among these are life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The people that wrote these owned other people like it. Just fix the hypocrisy. It's just ludicrous. Like hypocrisy war like everyone has rights. We know sorry. We have rights. Everyone might have rights. That's kind of the gist. It's so from that point. In time there were more people can like more people. Existed who didn't have rights than heart rates like women did not have many rights that many rights. That's got to be over fifty percents. Also I remember thinking about. This child made like why? That's really embarrassing. That they wrote that was take people rights. I can't believe they didn't realize what an error they were making themselves. And we still quote it like. That's like if Hitler had said something about like peace and we were like where that was a good quote though on you. Just what? He preached boy. Was it a good quote? I know exactly like this is very aspirational. Unlike it for what it is when you think about the context no so human rights in the modern era really gets going. I suppose with the UN Cheshire which was established in one thousand nine forty five which is in the wake of the atrocities of World War. Two but an important thing about the UN Charito to keep in mind is the human rights was never the main focus. The main focus was to prevent road war. Three if you will and a good question I think is the. Un was not created to take Mankayane to heaven but to save humanity from hell which is a coup the former United Nations secretary general commerce gold. That's good it's good boy. I want the poster. I don't think we're even being saved from Alabama. Oh No it doesn't the third circle of Hell Somewhere. I don't know you mentioned the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which was adopted in nineteen forty eight and it had thirty areas calls with you know again the quote unquote the basic human rights. The high profile ones right to life freedom from torture freedom of expression and there is a big divide theoretically within rights and the international contacts between so-called positive and negative rights which doesn't mean one's good and one's barrage like what is good and one said is bad and so positive rights is higher the government can interact with people to enhance their enjoyment of their freedom and negative rights is basically. You're the government limiting their interference. So he can be left alone to enjoy your freedom like privacy for his aesthetically cool so there's the International Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights. Which is the more positive side of rights? So it's the right to the rector social security the right to education the right to health so this kind of right to Geshe things from the government and then there's the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which is the negative rights. So be left alone. The right to life the right to liberty freedom of expression right of peaceful assembly so that was really good like that was Seabra. Good no wonder you're an an expert. I'm not an expert so the Irish constitution will narrow it back day in from. That was a very broad general introduction to the gist of human rights in a micro sense. So we'll bring it back to the Irish Constitution. So if you've been listening to this podcast for any amount of time you know we love the constitution. It's what we're a boast. So the Irish Constitution or Boehner Clarion was ratified in nineteen thirty. Seven eight describes the fundamental rights of every Irish citizen. I mentioned the constitution is also part of a wider human rights framework in Ireland. So there's other legal and human rights commitments made by Ireland so the treaties under the United Nations. Which have mentioned some of them the European Convention of Human Rights on the ECJ or act which brings those rights into the Irish context on the charter fundamental rights of the European Union. So articles forty. Two forty four provide the fundamental rights of our citizens so as Alana mentioned fundamental rights are not obsolete which they can be limited or restricted by the octaves for certain reasons like common good public order and every constitutional. Right has the same status and value. If there's a conflict between the constitutional rights all the circumstances are wade opt to decide which conceal right is more important in that particular case so I feel those last. Two points are very important to emphasize because I perceive a common misunderstanding to be like having a rice is obsolete Like no further just discussion required end of story. Good night good luck. I have my rice go away. So the Covenant on Economic Social and Cultural Rights is generally associated with more like eastern countries so when Western countries like when people say I have a right to education? My brain just wanted to go do you think so which is kind of terrible so on enumerated rights have been mentioned before. Alana back in episode two and also earlier in this episode so basically not every fundamental rights that you possess is set in the constitution explicitly. You've Sony personal rates that are just not specifically stated and these rights can be derived or employed by the constitution. So these include privacy bodily integrity on freedom from torture inhumane or degrading treatment. So the case I pick a for a while I was worried. I'd gone away off brief and the human rights but this is a rights case. It's just sometimes I think when people talk about human rights they perceive it to be these massive injustices like on an atrocity scale which it can be but a lot of time feel human rights can be very almost mundane every day things if that makes sense so the case I chose was nickel and on boarding tola nine hundred sixty six one four so the applicant in this case can ever say Leonidas Nikola was separate national. Living in London he'd been in a relationship with Kathleen Donnelly Irishwoman woman and they lived together in London when their daughter was born there. February nine hundred sixty at the time. Stanley was upset that the child was illegitimate and operate. Continue living with Mr Nikolai on his wife but she also would only marry Niccolo if he became a member of the Catholic Church because he was a member of the Greek Orthodox church where she's yeah. I can't read the Times that makes sense you. I mean this case really does focus on the rights of the married father. But at the time it's really pertinent to remember. For All this context I focus on Nikolas writes Bush like Kathleen. Donnelly obviously a terrible time. As well the nineteen sixties in Ireland absolutely just controlled by the Catholic Church so women having children of wedlock of you will was just absolutely scandalous. And they retreated so horribly criminally stigmatized Bush. Just keep that in mind. I do focus on Nikola. But that's not saying that she got off. Scot free in any sense of course so the Mother Kathleen Donald Returns to Ireland. She goes to the Office of the Catholic Production Rescue Society of Ireland and was admitted with her baby to Saint Patrick's home. Which was you know whether there's more and baby homes which is just a whole other fish we could discuss so she requested that the child be placed for adoption on. She then left the home and went to live with her parents on the ABC. Into this case Niccolo went and visited. The home of the mother's parents Orland and was very apprehensive. That arrangements were being made to have his child adopted and in nineteen sixty one. The child adoption was finalized bought. Mr Nicholas was only informed of this when Miss John Lee Returned London. Nineteen sixty three. He objected the adoption. Which had been arranged with Ed is consent? It was you that he had no right to contest the adoption order or even be heard by onboard. Tola just the adoption board so the governing major station in this case was the adoption act. Nineteen fifty two. It was the first legislation Ireland covering adoption before nineteen fifty two. It was just a free for all adoption. There is if there's something though low legislation no real. Anything went terrible when the adoption act was being was being drafted. The hierarchy of the Catholic Church was given an unusual degree of control. You know even by the prevailing standards at the time so every line of the bill was sent to the Catholic Archbishop of Dublin by Dev. Really well Dave Dave wanted. Obviously the Catholic Church had a huge influence over everything devils particularly religious Yuccas. What he sent every single line of the adoption act. The BISHOP PROVED LEGISLATION..

"Knowledge and call on in their areas of expertise. One of them is Mary or gravy. Of the Wall Street Journal whose clarity about Latin America is unparalleled. So having preview to the sky. Welcome to the show Mary. Thank you. Dennis great to join you again. Right. You were an important Cullum on Venezuela. I want to read something to buy listeners and have you come in. So you you show how resistance quote has spread to every corner of the country at every socioeconomic class. And and Mary Grady writes, the uninitiated may wonder why Mr. Madero now even suffering some defections among the upper ranks of the dictatorship thinks he can hang on. So here comes one important reason may be foreign supporters who insists that he deserves a quote dialogue unquote with his opponents. These supporters include Cuba and Russia, of course. But also, Mexico Uruguay the U N High Commissioner for human rights, the pope and an assortment of American apologist I'd like to go down that list. What makes each of them tick? So let's begin with Mex Mexico. Mexico is going against almost all of its fellow Latin American countries. Yeah. I mean, the new president Andres Manuel Lopez over door is a guy who is basically an old time, a priest and the pre, of course, wasn't really left wing. It was more like off Sara -tarian. Let me there's a PR is the priests that is from PRI, and he he he he left that party when it started to modernize, and and, you know, go for more free trade and open markets and more modern institutions and so forth. He he caught away he formed his own left-wing party. And he, you know, he people say that he's still very much of a office the old nineteen sixties fat. But he was he could not have gone to the presidency without the support of the hard left. And so now when the whole of Latin America pretty much says mother, oh did not hold free elections in may two thousand eighteen and needs. To step aside and allow elections to be held. He says, no, we can't intervene, and he claims that that's because Mexico never intervenes and other countries. But in my view, he's just sort of paying back. Those hard leftists who put him in office who still defend dictator mother. Oh and Venezuela, and Cuba and Russia, etc. Etc. Okay. So that's Mexico. I the only one on the list that I had no idea about was Uruguay. What's with Uruguay? Well, you're hasn't very hard laptop governor, really. That's interesting. Yeah. I mean, it's been a problem for a long time. They've always been kind of practical on and again, they're using this most of the leftists saying, oh, well, we're just non interventionist. We don't believe in sticking our nose until you know, other people's businesses so forth. But it's a it's a hard left government. And again, put an office by probably a lot of and people who just think, you know, maybe socialism can work, but also with the. Support of the very hard left in in the country. And so they have to show that they are still believers and the religious happening to the economy of Uruguay. Then if the hard left is in power. Well, they're always very practical. And you know, they're they're they their economy. Basically depends a lot on Argentina. So it's not doing super well. But I think the bigger problem that that government is having is corruption scandals and to tell you the truth, I think it's such a small country and so far away. It's not it doesn't rise to any kind of concern. For me. I'm much more worried. If we're talking about small countries about Central America things going on in Central America. And I think that the change in power in Brazil where a president who believes in free market institutions is going to be much more important. I agree. I was just curious. I'll be so the next one on your list of those who don't want to confront Madero. This is amazing. No, no, I take it's morally amazing. It's not factually amazing, the U N High Commissioner for human rights. You gotta be kidding. Well, if you look at her name, I think you wouldn't be surprised at all. That's Michelle Basch Alette. Michelle Basch was president twice of chili. And during that time, she was known as a as a worshiper of Castro. She even took a trip wants to Cuba. And there's a story about her when she was sitting in a certain environment, which is at least partially public and someone came up to her and said that Fidel would see her the story goes that she dropped all are things like a little schoolgirl and ran off. I mean, she really really worship the Cuban government. She, of course, was very much opposed to the Pinochet period, and you know, just very sympathetic to the hard left. So. The U N High Commissioner for human rights, ladies and gentlemen, a worshiper of Fidel Castro for this alone was worth having you want? Look, you don't have to come in on this. I have I have railed against the UN as a moral wasteland all of my life next. The pope. Yeah. The vatican. It's very sad on many levels. First of all, the Catholic church in Venezuela has been persecuted terribly, and there are many very brave members of the clergy archbishops bishops and just a parish priest who have been standing up for their flock trying to criticize the government f f very big cost. There was just a video last week a parish priest talking about how they had come into his church during mass and basically wreck the place, and he was giving a play by play narrative of what had gone on. So the Catholic church in Minnesota has been extremely courageous. And this goes back for many years back into the government. The Vatican on the other hand, I keep saying that we need to dialogue with mother. Oh, and so the Vatican has not the Farakhan is not protecting its own. Priests. Then. It really isn't. I mean, I'm sure that they would come up with some language to suggest that you. Well, the best way out of the problem is dialogue because we don't want violence and all that sort of thing. But I think that you know, history shows us that at some point, you know, negotiating with thugs is a losing game. One would think we'll be.

It's not factually amazing, the U N High Commissioner for human rights. You gotta be kidding. Well, if you look up her name, I think you wouldn't be surprised at all. That's Michelle Basch Alette. Michelle Basch Alette was president twice of chili. And during that time, she was known as a as a worshiper of Fidel Castro. She even took a trip wants to Cuba. And there's a story about her when she was sitting in a certain environment, which is at least partially public and someone came up to her and said that she Dell would see her the story goes that she dropped all are things like a little schoolgirl and ran off. I mean, she really really worship the Cuban government. She, of course, was very much opposed to the Pinochet period, and you know, just very sympathetic to the hard left. So. The U N High Commissioner for human rights, ladies, gentlemen, a worshiper of Fidel Castro for this alone was worth having a look you don't have to comment on this.

So the Catholic church in Minnesota has been extremely courageous. And this goes back for many years back into the government. The Vatican on the other hand, I keep saying that we need to dialogue with zero. And so the Vatican is not the Farakhan is not protecting its own. Priests. Then. It really isn't.

"Everybody Dennis Prager here. I feel I just just occurred to me I feel like I have a sort of faculty at the at the Dennis Prager show. Thera- people that I so admire entrust their insight and their knowledge and call on in their areas of expertise, one of them is Mary or gravy. Of the Wall Street Journal whose clarity about Latin America is unparalleled. So having praised you to the sky. Welcome to the show Mary. Thank you. Dennis great to join you again. Thank you, eat the important column on Venezuela. I want to read something to buy listeners and have you comment. So you you show how resistance quote has spread to every corner of the country and every socioeconomic class, and and very greedy writes, the uninitiated may wonder why Mr. Madero now even suffering some defections among the upper ranks of the dictatorship thinks he can hang on. So here comes one important reason may be foreign supporters who insists that he deserves a quote dialogue unquote with his opponents. These supporters include Cuba and Russia, of course. But also, Mexico Uruguay the U N High Commissioner for human rights, the pope and an assortment of American apologists I'd like to go down that list. What makes each of them tick? So let's begin with Mex Mexico. Mexico is going against almost all of its fellow Latin American countries. Yeah. I mean, the new president Andres Manuel Lopez over door is a guy who is basically an all time, a priest and the pre, of course, wasn't really left wing. It was more like austerity -tarian. Let me just a PR is the priesthood is from PRI. The party that party when it started to modernize, and and, you know, go for more free trade and open markets and more modern institutions and so forth. He got away he formed his own left wing party. And he, you know, he people say that he's still very much a corporatists and the old nineteen sixties fat. Check. He was he could not have gotten to the presidency without the support of the hard left. And so now when the whole of Latin America, pretty much says mother did not hold free elections in may two thousand eighteen and needs to step aside and allow election city help he says, no, we can't intervene, and he claims that that's because Mexico never intervenes and other countries. But in my view, he's just sort of paying back. Those hard leftists who put him in office who still defend dictator Mobuto in Venezuela, and Cuba, and Russia, etc. Etc. Okay. So that's Mexico. I the only one on the list that I had no idea about was Uruguay. What's with Uruguay? Well, you're has some very hard left Gumma. Really? That's interesting. Yeah. I mean, it's been a problem for a long time. They've always been kind of practical on and again, they're using this most of the leftists saying, oh, well, we're just not intervene. We don't believe in sticking our nose into other people's businesses so forth, but it's it's a hard left government. And again, put an office by probably a lot of decent people who just think, you know, maybe socialism can work, but also with the support of the very hard left in in the country. And so they have to show that they are still believers and the religious happening to the economy of Uruguay. Then if the hard left is in power, well, they're always very practical. The lions, and you know, they're their their economy. Basically depends a lot on Argentina. So it's not doing super well. But I think the bigger problem that that government is having is corruption scandal and to tell you the truth, I think it's such a small country and so far away. It's not it doesn't rise to any kind of concern. For me. I'm much more worried. If we're talking about small countries about Central America things going on in Central America. And I think that the change in power in Brazil where a president who believes in free market institutions is going to be much more important ally. Agree, I was just curious. I'll be so the next one on your list of those who don't want to confront Madero. This is amazing. No, I take it's morally amazing. It's not factually amazing, the U N High Commissioner for human rights. You gotta be kidding. Well, if you look up her name, I think he wouldn't be surprised at all. That's Michelle Basch let Michelle Basch Alette was president twice of chili. And during that time, she was known as a as a worshiper of Fidel Castro. She even took a trip wants to Cuba.

The U N High Commissioner for human rights, ladies and gentlemen, a worshiper. Fidel Castro for this alone was worth having a look you don't have to come in on this.

If at all because one of his criticisms is that he's been a little too lofty. He's not engaged with a public. The let's not forget not that long ago. Voted him rather enthusiast ikley into office. What's the suggestion that he should be doing differently? Do the opposition have to suggest something else? And they just have to Chrissy to get some critics, and that's all well, let's that's what's happening anyway. So what what they say is that you know, is that what you should have done before. Which is of course, not helpful. But what she should should you. Now, they said that he should have listened to you the people earlier than you should be more respectful to the people a few days ago your ear against president micro against that. Frankly, Paul lost the sense of effort, which of course, didn't go. Well, so they're saying what you should do is try to be some try to be so not so scornful anymore to the French people. But I don't say that's what you should. Absolutely. That's the solution. I think you should think about there's no I mean, the debate is not as intelligent as a start. I guess at the moment. It's more the French people the year of s than the others were trying to say something to the president the prime is as you said, there's no no career directory in a way in this yellow. Vast movement some say, they are presentative. But when they just put the head above the parapet they just being taken off because they did universe. Don't want to have representatives. Meaning that the message and the way the thing that they would want the president. Did you do doesn't basically reach the executive? So it's a bit of a mishmash of everything position is in disarray is no official position. You don't know if it's the right the left or the centre riders the opposition to the to the president that doesn't help. Because of course, when you're your position the best thing to do is not to be precise. So you should you have as much as you can and the universe movement. Even have a, you know, a voice to say what they want. So at the moment America McCall is evolving in void in a way and trying to do the best c-can, and it's very very important moment for for him. Because if he fails in that he might be used the word very in very interesting. He might.
