11:22 pm
in. just under the age of 13 they are born in the raised up in the wall so their mindset and attitude just. i decided to teach my so programming so that i can make a priest. as a refugee living in uganda and had to walk 3 hours to an internet cafe internet cafe so he could charge his computer and play video games and now is the founder and c.e.o. of 2 new games he's winning awards partnering with other developers to create games with a social impact lol of course is not alone in the pursuit of video gaming is a multi-billion dollar industry and as it's grown so too have the number of civic minded game developers organizations and conferences working to educate players about humanitarian issues from the plight of refugees and migrants to the horrors of war so. welcome to the street and you so much it's
11:23 pm
a new friend this. is the president of games for change that's a nonprofit organization that brings together game creators and social innovators and around me it's now is a video game developer and co-founder of the netherlands based studio. he also helped start the game well developer conference hello everybody it's good to have you here i should really say thank you to your mom because without her mother sitting it will literally but also because the subject matter let me just i looked around the internet i found obama here she is right here the story about how you got into gaming was all about what your mother did in order to help you get into gaming you spent all of your life in a refugee camp and you loved video games how did you even get to play them. from
11:24 pm
a country with a civil war. a long time ago to flee to the roof and when they were going to the roof and you come i was born on the way and then from there like growing up as children we love you know the good thing about video games it doesn't matter with him. where you you have to make sure that you have to find something to play and formula growing up in a refugee camp i never thought i'd get a game of credible people i posit just for from having. read everything is ok i never thought about it and one day i went to like. refrigerate just christian center and i saw a computer and i was asking my mother like what is that and she said as a computer and i will write i want to use that one day and then like i went to internet cafe and my friends tofor me a video game called drop also like then i start playing a show like like when i stopped playing i was like you know this is a great video game and how can we be able to use game 4 for impact game to bring
11:25 pm
peace and your misery saw that because most kids when they're playing grand theft auto are not thinking how do i change the well because i think you have any point that the reason is because whatever i was saying in the game was actually what is happening in my country and i was like how can i use this to be able i because i'm from a country that i was over 73 percent of the population is under the age of 30 these are young children that were born and were raised and when they start playing this kind of game because it can be able to change their mindset and i went and i told my mother need a lot of and she love me and see like what are you going to do with your computer and there's no money there's no place where you can charge it and she spent almost 3 years looking for $300.00 to buy from a computer so one day when like this is the money and i was like wow what do i do and it's a step back. so like a highlight work every day because i know making video game is the best thing that i can be able to do because video game can be able to you know change a mindset of people and people can be able to play it and the whole idea is about
11:26 pm
you know when you play a game it become part of your life especially when you play with a friend when your friend kill your career you feel like why did you kill me it's not like why did you kill my character and become a part of your life a loss why like when we have to kind of impact game it can be like and you feel like. industry grows. so for the handful of people in our audience who don't play video games because their audience say they actually love this topic i want to share that i want to share with them this this is grand theft auto so this is what really caught your attention there it was actually grand theft auto by city with just one of the winds online we got a comment from someone who writes in on twitter that 1st person shooter games what's a grand theft auto could arguably be considered one of those glorify killing and they glorify the military so. you talked briefly about the link between feeling that game and seeing what was going on in your own country but then how did that
11:27 pm
how did you take that next step to say i'm going to turn it on its head and i won't be glorifying killing i won't be glorifying shooting and that's why we become the game to both of us because we have to identify the problem and the solution that you want to solve and for me i saw a solution the wall of conflict you know what is opening in the world today i believe true peace is something that is good all the time and when i start playing video game i realize that if we can be able to create something like grunts that was so we can actually turn it does depend on what is you know what is your solution to the problem that you want to solve so like get him to go punch we're going responsibility to be able to create things that can bring social impact a lot a lot of them and that's what i'd like. to talk about the games. i mean these and i'm going to go for the obvious that there was such an extraordinary sight so in a wonderful way to start the prize. you found you know how did you find. i met
11:28 pm
a little in johannesburg south africa at the image festival and i think if i was not mistaken although it was your 1st international flight at her as well yes i did get. low as it was promoting is his game and he had been invited by the organizers ms festival to show this game that had gone viral through social media actually. to the point where caught the attention of even organizing i remember meeting the law and the law you were talking about you know being so amazed by that community in south africa very young infant unity at the time as well and people helping each other sort of wondering about whether something like that could exist that homeless outside on. in the refugee camp and they come to the conclusion that you could just make that yourself if you want to. and it was i
11:29 pm
remember being very impressed about that already you would want to do you might in fact i'm just going to say that all the festivus call that the lal you go out to the refugee camp in northern uganda maidens at home it's called sam well what's known as you counting carol when people say oh. this was this was a phenomenal game obviously as low pointed out games are an international language day extend far beyond. far beyond just the stories that we tell playfulness and player such international such international things. i travel a lot for for my work trying to promote involvement in emerging territories in developing countries and one thing i notice is that no matter where in the world you go if you put a ball on the ground and get it to work somebody they're going to pick it back you don't need to speak their language and single use. games to to tell
11:30 pm
this message that is. you know you would hope is a very global message but it's such a privilege to many of us in the world that we grew up in peace to see the law use his experiences and told best story to tell that perspective through this video game was extremely impressive and then the drive he had to to make that a bigger thing to turn that into. a structural effort both for himself and in the industry i was just i was incredibly better spent then i want to go on. and see what you've done since obviously it's been. it's been incredible. the push of me to make this a topic i do you know i'm thinking season ailes that you take the platform the gang platform and then you're trying to do something more with it how do you do that how do you say well this game is different this game is about social change but using the tools that you do just to have some yes so there is
11:31 pm
a wonderful aspect to games that are different than other forms of entertainment you know games are ubiquitous they are in every home they're every hand with through mobile as far as but unlike television or film or even of reading a book games have this interactive element to it right you know player a sense of agency where you can step into the role of another character you can change the outcome of the trial and error you can fail you can die come back and try again so all of those components make games a very compelling platform in which to explore social issues and to do it in an aging way where you are as a player you are deeply immersed in the experience and that's just an amazing place to start. and then you add in the experts who. climate change are might be an expert in that. in conflict resolution right along with the
11:32 pm
creative team and the developer team it's such a collaborative effort. to build a game that had that kind of connection can actually come about come away with some outcomes that impacts something you want to play or what to do you like alert that experience and i thought is the appeal rami that's the appeal for one of our community members so this is a chief larson twitter who says that games can introduce ethical questions that the player has to choose from a question such as justified killing committing crimes in order to survive sacrificing one to save many cetera games influence thought and critical thinking more than behavior from your take on that yeah i think games when people think of games they very much think of one specific element of games which is the entertainment slash distraction part of games which are both are important things like any medium games have the power to put us in fantasies in our fancies in different situations in perspectives but the other side of games that people don't
11:33 pm
think about very often is that games have been used to train the professionals of flight simulators doctors are good also to teach us perspectives for me honestly the largest part of my history knowledge comes from a game called age of empires which simulated old all that is sort of bottles right and at the same time i think what is really interesting about games is that we've seen when game started it was that's not that long ago right this medium is what 60 years maybe 80 years old video games as a medium and that don't compute as weren't very powerful so a lot of what games were built on was this very simple idea of things are either hitting each other or they're not at each other and if they're getting each other something happens that if they're not at each other nothing out of that obvious privilege sums up my childhood. that pretty much means that you're either eating
11:34 pm
something or attacking something or getting something for shooting something so that's where games started butt. ask you just got more powerful as this medium grew we've seen of their very interesting incidental displeased that basically introduces people to the role of a border guard at a fictional east european country in which the players confronted with. a new will some specific ones that you that we've got so that we can show people because it's very hard to to see picture it unless you actually see it so that it was a game that you said that we should look at is code that war of mine tell us a little bit about it before we. yeah this war mind is a game by published. it looks as an example of what happens when more people are introduced into in development traditionally the game's history is very western very japanese focused. development tools acts. like
11:35 pm
a love story you get these different perspectives so what's a world where the u.s. or europe likes to. take a pause because we want to play a little bit of. i lived through hell with these people. we were a group we would do anything to stay on. never forget stays. things you see in war. stay with you. forever and i'll give this to you this person says that game's about social change you don't know how because people play video games to have fun not to be preached to do you think that something that you are worried about or should be worried about do you agree with them i mean does a very good question and to me i actually thought about it when i started going to
11:36 pm
games and though the whole the whole idea is because you know when about creators create a new video game for the church and some of them become independent and the public by their own and when we look for example when we talk about the game or what i was actually last year as the global gaming citizen and to see that here i mean i mean because you look so happy beaming there so to see a video game for such a being for such a good to be being recognized as a kind of a platform it's actually like. people to understand why the industry needs i kind of video game saw it it's a journey you don't have to give about it even if again it's about the way you design the game so when you design the game when players because players sometimes choose what to play and that's how i design my solemn game depends i do i do like growth of what i do i do like it depend on the gameplay and also like the way you
11:37 pm
designed the game so people will be able to play the game by what they choose not because it's a social impact game. opposite. actually exclusionary. and some of that here yes so there are also games that are used that are distributed not necessarily through a direct right where you are competing against marshall games and you have that challenge and we're just you and your chain and shop people and basically with a game let's say like we're at that auto but there are other ways in which these games are being used in the classroom platform and which you know address it here to lie. you told us about that tracking cancer was an extraordinary thing that's a little clip of that and then you can explain is that as an example about how you can educate as well as entertaining as have a lot. of rain off.
11:38 pm
as maybe you know 2. sorry guys it's not good. question my heart with the radiation and it kind of freaks me out. to be another pair. so yes this is a remarkable emotional call that. drag cancer made by newman at games and it was a fashion example of how you can tell a very powerful personal story through a game experience and it's a narrative that is personal for them it was actually about kind of a badass to a son that they lost to cancer at a very young age and while this game was more was produced as a personal expression it has helped so many people deal with loss and understand
11:39 pm
what that what that experience is like and then the game studio are actually working with pharmaceutical the hospital companies the top to create experiences that help patients go through this the journey knowing that they're not alone and understand how they can challenge the ovaries variances and that would be the kind of examples of how games can be used for therapy games can be used and as i said in education it could be used in training and simulate to me that relating to a sexual harassment within the work for you use these tools and in which they engage people in a game environment and they can be incredibly affect them. and give one more example and this one comes from a developer who says they can be used to help teach people about the refugee and migrant crisis so we got a video comment from philip de bron x. and he is the developer of a game called today is a new day and here's what he told the string. at today's a new day we produced
11:40 pm
a game that puts the player in the shoes of a refugee trying to cross the border along to salt called balkan route now the reason we did that was because it's been 3 years since slovenia put up a razor wire fence on of southern border which did nothing to curb the flow of migrations it only made it and we think more dangerous for everyone and at the same time it prevented some more human friendly policies to be implemented in slovenia as well we wanted to remind people that the fence is still there we wanted to at least open up the conversation but india and we failed to succeed because our government is currently considering putting up even more of the fence so philip runs a company called today is new day and the game that i'm showing you on my screen now you can see it here is called the razor wire but rami there are a lot of hurdles to getting a game like this on the market and then making a difference because there are things like government standing in the way of
11:41 pm
people's progress here according to what he said in that video what do you make of his comment. i mean when you think about it every every media around these issues which you discuss u.s. involvement in for example iraq or afghanistan. the worst there is obviously going to run into the u.s. this is happened before questions about the israeli palestinian conflict run into issues on the astore these are parts of creating media. wind larger structural issues we don't. you wanted to push back and i think that is a very generic media problem right like this is not specific to this is just part of games now you know powerful are people express themselves and how to talk about issues of their life and issues of this world you are you are we discussing talent and you have many things going on including your own company and one of your new

conflict for example the game i ask you what you know what a player to i knew. in a country that is going through a conflict and how they're going to be able to create their own conflict to that country so all the whole idea is by simply owning a conflict. resolution to the conflict and owning the conflict so lou i think you answered the question of nostradamus who said video games are mostly played by the privileged kids in african homes that's that's their perspective there so this kind of speaks to that but there's another question we just got from zana taxi is those are these games available for us to try out or buy i got as far as finding 2 new games dot com but i couldn't find a download link yet we're launching a long game in december so it will be right in no way the game is available on the website as well so it's a good when you can be able to find a game that you know i was looking at and i was looking at some pictures from. laos version 2 of the game and i'm looking here so this is an image so this is one

11:49 pm
between the trump campaign and russia but it has opened up a series of other probes into those clothes the president let's listen to what he has to say here 2 years ago the acting attorney general asked me to serve as special counsel and he created the special counsel's office. the appointment order directed to the office to investigate russian interference in the 2016 presidential election this included investigating any links or coordination between the russian government and individuals associated with the trump campaign and i have not spoken publicly during our investigation i'm speaking out today because our investigation is complete the attorney general has made the report on our investigation far julie public we are formally closing the special counsel's office and as well i'm resigning from the department of justice to return
11:50 pm
to private life. i make a few remarks about the results of our work but beyond these few remarks it is important that the office's written work speak for itself let me begin where the appointment order begins and that is interference in the 2016 presidential election as alleged by the grand jury in an indictment russian intelligence officers who were part of the russian military launched a concerted attack on our political system the indictment alleges that the use of fist akkad it cyber techniques to hack into computers and networks used by the clinton campaign they stole private information and then released that information through fake online and identities and through the organization wiki leaks the releases were designed and timed to interfere with our election and to damage
11:51 pm
a presidential candidate and at the same time as the grand jury alleged in a separate indictment a private russian entity engaged in a social media operation where russian citizens posed as americans in order to influence an an election these indictments contain alegate allegations and we are not commenting on the guilt or the innocence of any specific defendant every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty the indictments allege and the other activities in our report to describe efforts to interfere in our political system they needed to be investigated and understood and that is among the reasons why the department of justice established our office that is also a reason we investigated efforts to obstruct the investigation the matters we investigated were of paramount importance it was critical for us to obtain full and
11:52 pm
accurate information from every person we questioned. when a subject of an investigation obstructs that investigation or lies to investigators it strikes at the core of the government's effort to find the truth and hold wrongdoers accountable let me say a word about the report the report has 2 parts addressing the 2 main issues we were asked to investigate the 1st volume of the report details numerous efforts emanating from russia to influence the election this by him includes a discussion of the truck campaign's response to this activity as well as our conclusion that there was insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy and in the 2nd volume the report describes the results and analysis of our obstruction of justice investigation involving the president
11:53 pm
and the order appointing me special counsel authorized us to investigate actions that could obstruct the investigation and we conducted that investigation and we kept the office of the acting attorney general apprised of the progress of our work and as set forth in the report after that investigation if we had had calmed confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime we would have said so we did not however make a determination as to whether the president did commit a crime the introduction to the volume 2 of our report explains that decision explains that under longstanding department policy a president president cannot be charged with a federal crime while he is in office that is unconstitutional even if the charge is kept under seal and hidden from public view that too is prohibited
11:54 pm
a special counsel's office is part of the department of justice and by regulation it was bound by that department policy. charging the president with a crime was therefore not an option we could consider. the department's written opinion explaining the policy makes several important points that further informed our handling of the obstruction investigation those points are summarized in our report and i will describe 2 of them for you 1st the opinion explicitly explicitly permits the investigation of a sitting president because it is important to preserve evidence while memories are fresh and documents available among other things that evidence could be used if there were coconspirators who could be charged now and 2nd the opinion says that the constitution requires
11:55 pm
a process other than the criminal justice system to formally accuse a sitting president for wrongdoing and beyond department policy we were guided by principles of fairness it would be unfair to potentially it would be unfair to potentially accuse somebody of a crime when there can be no court resolution of the actual charge so that was justice department policy those were the principles under which we operated and from them we concluded that we would would not reach a determination one way or the other about whether the president committed a crime that is the office of the and that is the office is final position and we will not comment on any other conclusions or hypotheticals about the president we conducted an independent criminal investigation and reported the results to the attorney general as required by department regulations the attorney general then
11:56 pm
concluded that it was appropriate to provide a report to congress and to the american people. at one point in time i requested that certain portions of the report be released the attorney general prepare a preferred to make that into the preferred to make the entire report public all at once and we appreciate that the attorney general made the report largely public and i certainly don't question the attorney general's good faith in that decision now i hope and expect this to be the only time that i will speak to you in this manner i am making that decision myself no one has told me whether i can or should testify or speak further about this matter there has been discussion about an appearance before congress any testimony from this office would not go beyond our report it contains our findings and analysis and the reasons for the decisions we made we
11:57 pm
chose those words carefully and the work speaks for itself and the report is my testimony i would not provide information beyond that which is already public in any appearance before congress in addition access to or under the underlying work product is being decided any process it does and that does not involve our office so beyond what i've said here today and what is contained in our written work i do not believe it is appropriate for me to speak further about the investigation or to comment on the actions of the justice department or congress and as for that reason i will not be taking questions today as well now before i step away i want to thank the attorneys the f.b.i. agents the analysts the professional staff who helped us conduct this investigation
11:58 pm
in a fair and independent manner these individuals who spent nearly 2 years with the special counsel's office were of the highest integrity and i will close by reiterating the central allegation of our indictments that there were multiple systematic efforts to interfere in our election. and that allegation deserves the attention of every american thank you thank you for being here today. live pictures coming to you from washington d.c. u.s. special counsel robert muller publicly for the 1st time addressing the media since the since the publication of his report last april he said this is a bit of a surprise that he's formally closing the office and resigning as counsel and he's going back to private practice he said on the issue of interference he said a russian agents launched a sophisticated attack on the u.s.
11:59 pm
political system to interfere with elections and damage a u.s. candidate he didn't call any names but this was one of his findings he said the efforts to obstruct he said there were efforts to obstruct his investigation by subjects of the investigation that he was carrying out he said there were numerous efforts from russia to interfere with the election and he actually repeated this at the end of his statement he said there was an investigation into allegations of obstruction of justice by the president this was also carried out but his investigation and himself did not make a judgment as to whether or not the president had committed a crime he said that is his office's final position on the matter he talked about the attorney general making the report largely public and he appreciated wm bob's approach in that matter he said quite significantly there will be no testimony to congress this is something that house democrats have been asking for but he says there will be no testimony to congress and he ended the sort of 6 or 7 minute
12:00 am
statement by saying by repeating the allegation that there were repeated efforts by russian agents to interfere with the u.s. political system before they turn to 16 presidential election will we live in washington d.c. where a white house correspondent kimberly hellcat is standing by but let's 1st go to jordan rose and how much of a surprise is this statement by robert muller because we weren't expecting him to speak publicly and what do you make of what he had to say well deron it was a surprise that robert muller the now former special counsel investigating russian interference in the 2016 presidential election it was a surprise.
