4:33 am
hi, i'm sandra gottman. welcome to a new series of portal. here's where we show you the world of al jazeera digital and it's award winning online content. think of me as your guide to the best of what you don't usually see on tv. this week we're looking at latin america correspondent that is about gives us a personal take on what it's like to report on one of the world's most dangerous routes for migrants. we've got an explainer on why life in cuba is tougher than ever and will take you to the front line of the battle between protesters and police and columbia. and i'm with the darian gap is an infamous stretch of jungle between columbia and panama. it's got mountains, rivers, and it's controlled by criminal gangs. crossing it is incredibly dangerous,
4:34 am
but that's what thousands of migrants are doing anyway, hoping to eventually make it to the us out. is there a correspondent that isabel has been telling their stories? but in this episode of the series between us, she tells us her story of what it's been like on the ground. ah, dramatic situation is happening in latin america right now. we're thousands and thousands of people are trying to make it to the united states. people are extremely vulnerable, but they think they're ready to go. they trying to cross what is known as the daren gap is a jungle area that connects columbia with panama, the migrants we have spoken to. i have been rocked, many have been raped and the dangers they face are in i'm babies. have all my latin american correspondence for al jazeera and between at this story and like any other has made me feel completely powerless. so
4:35 am
many of these people are originally there from haiti, cuba, venezuela. and there's also other countries, you know, we've seen people from bangladesh, people from ghana, they make it from my daughter, from chile, from brazil, till the small town of nick oakley in columbia. and from there they have to get on a fairy and cross what is known as the gulf of odella. there they make it to a small town of i can be and from there they go into the darien gap that takes them all the way to panama. this is an area that says filled with rivers with mountains, with cliff. there is one mountain that is called the death mountain because it is so difficult to be able to cross it. they say that it takes them between $4.00 and $5.00 days, but then you have entire families. it takes them between $11.15 days to make the crossing. there are lots of women carrying very young children. this one, for example, is only a month and a half old. they are also facing the dangers of criminal organizations. they were
4:36 am
telling us that they have to pay between a $1200.00 each in order to be taken towards the jungle. and most of this money goes to criminal organizations. we met fatal javier initially when he arrived to the other side, he started sending us messages, saying they lied to us. what happened is we were robbed, a girl in our team was raped. he said it was horrific situation for all of them. we took a flight of panama city and we went to the other side to talk to some of those who managed to make the cross. and the stories we heard where terrible in just the period while we were there, the reports of abuse had gone from 70 women reporting having been raped. $420.00, they soul masked men come into one of the good taking and separating the women. they kind of pick them, they chose who's a truck they rentals. not i spoke to
4:37 am
a venezuelan woman said as she was seeing how many of the women in her group had been taken away as being rave. she started to cover herself in mud. so they would look at her and see her dirty, and nobody will want to touch it was extremely traumatic for me. it was listening stories where, where you feel powerless, where you cannot help them. ah, let's have a question. we asked at the beginning of the journey, you know, what you're getting yourself into, is it worth the risk when there were like, we need to do this because i need to improve my life. i need to give an opportunity to my children. so all of it is worth it, but when you ask that same question to those people on the other side, many will say this was not worth florida garcia. venezuelan woman that spoke to us a lot and, and i'm still in touch with what she was trying to climb. aide was raining
4:38 am
a lot and the mud was falling on top of her. and she kept on trying and trying and trying and, and you could feel her suffering because i know body of what it's horrible because i felt i couldn't any more. my feet were injured and i was thinking of my children . i thought my baby was not going to make it, or some corridors in the jungle where the rivers simply go up. one venezuelan migrant was telling me he saw forties and remains of people on top of the trees. apparently the were trying to save themselves from drowning. most of them lost their phones so you know, when did up sending messages to their parents or their relatives brought telling them that we saw them there. okay. that they're alive. i yes, again i, when i spoke to the mother of a venezuelan, when the mother started crying on the phone and she still need be sell me. she's ok
4:39 am
. please tell me she's ok when you start looking at the messages that they sent to their relatives. if they do not want to warrant, they don't want to show what they went through a . i am one of those journalists that truly believes that we can make a difference, that shedding lights on a story such as this one is gonna force some type of change because what's happening right now it's, it's so it's devastating though, as that, as a mentioned some of those migrants trying to cross the darian gap or from cuba and up next is a piece that helps explain what's driving cubans to leave their country. it's an episode of start here, the online, explain our series that i also host. now, after huge protests on the island, my team and i looked at how keep it works and what's going wrong. ah,
4:40 am
let's talk about cuba and why it's not working. there's not enough food medicine or fuel economy is broken even with a job. it's hard for most cubans to buy the basics and then throw in a pandemic people. they're tired on and then they thought we bundled up and now an unprecedented display of anger and frustration industry to cuba. me maybe about a settlement approved, but for life i thought you were fired. people uphold berry wants people shaniqua. let me grab this. this is rare. for cuba, people daring to protest all the streets and online little one of them, we lead medicine food. so what's going wrong? why are things worse than ever? and where does the us fit in? ah, ah!
4:41 am
after 60 years of communism, it's hard to know just how many cubans still support the revolutionary ideals of fidel castro. are no free elections are independent holes, state controls, the media and shuts down the internet when it wants. all we know is what we're seeing and hearing, and in july, when thousands of cubans march and protest, they were chatting, things like, oh, and also this ah, the john is from the song least a few months ago. a song that's become the soundtrack to people's frustrations, a spin on fidel castro's famous logan labs that i want. good
4:42 am
people are tired not only of the situation but old, so tired of listening to the same things all over again. the system right now isn't working for anyone. so let's get into some of the main reasons why. starting with the absolute essential, getting enough to eat. people have to undergo our long lines in order to get food and not even to get all the food they need. they don't grown up there in ireland doesn't provide fish 1st. so in most countries, food is supplied by a mix of public and private industries. but cuba, communist system centralizes and controls that whole process, farming is already tough enough. there are shortages of things like pesticides, fuel and equip stuff that has to be imported. and there's a drought the worst in a 100 years. now the government sets prices and production quotas for farmers, it collects their projects and controls distribution,
4:43 am
but most economists agree that that kills any incentive for farmers to be more productive. and the whole system is bureaucratic and inefficient. it didn't work in the soviet union. it's not working in cuba. farmers are still dependent on the state embed, have not perch that sector billing the leaves are living as a human. what all this means is that cuba cat feed itself, the state has to import something like 70 percent of food. and that just got even more expensive in the last year, global prices jumped 40 percent because of the pandemic now to buy food on the international market. human needs foreign currency, but it doesn't have much of that. and there's a whole bunch of reasons for it. mismanagement by the country's leaders for sure. but also us embargo which those same leaders have consistently blamed for the terrible state of the economy. they want somebody to go live on, come along, seem to be better,
4:44 am
maybe one more going to use environmental. i think it has to affect one is the real effect. on the other one is the way it, sir. authorities. i saw some excuse to leave a their own responsibility. a full train embargo was 1st imposed by president kennedy after fidel castro seized power in the cuban revolution. this was initiated in 1962 as part of a larger effort to overthrow the cuban government. that same embargo still exist today. it's basically a web of laws and regulations that ban u. s. companies from trading with anyone linked to the cuban state sanctions also make a complicated for international companies to do business with cuba, especially because so much global trade has done and us dollars. so it has to go through and the u. s. cuba still has trade worth hundreds of millions of dollars with other countries like china, spain and germany. but the u. s. embargo makes it all more time consuming and more expensive. what's clear is that cube is ability to provide for its people,
4:45 am
which let's face it is supposed to be the cuban model. well that's being squeezed like never before and gone. our cube was rich friends for decades, they could count on the soviet union when it collapsed than the 1990 s. so did q was economy that was cuba last been crisis in the 2000 cuba found a new friend in venezuela and benefited from dirt cheap, venezuela oil to use and re sell but oil shipments are way down because of us sanctions and the collapse of venezuela's economy and an oil sector and it's left cuba struggling to keep the lights on. no more power or i can use the radio if, if you would review waste that happened because the economy has been so bad for years. many cubans have relied on remittances. money sent from their relatives
4:46 am
abroad, especially those in the us. and that's an important source of dollars for the cuban economy to. but even that tap isn't flowing like it used to under president trump, companies like western union were banned from sending cash because they work with the bank in cuba owned by the military. so that dried up a big source of cash and cubans can hardly rely on their own currency the best. so just can't buy them what they need. got even worse when the government de valued the past. so back in january as part of a major currency reform would have created an enormous inflation. so the price of food, especially when the way up, it's a huge mass. and then you add a pandemic which is cut off another economic lifeline for cuba tourist dollars and all those pressures. while they seem to have pushed cubans to speak out against their government more openly than ever before. more people in cuba have lost the fear of being depressed and that going down to the streets, people,
4:47 am
you've seen the generation after generation, the time goes by and they just keep waiting and the political speech doesn't change, the solution doesn't arrive. the question is, how much longer cubans prepared to wait from cuba? let's look at colombia now, or a political crisis has spiraled into running battles between the police and protesters. in this episode of the documentary series fly on the wall, we meet the 1st liners, the people putting their lives on the line and their demand for change. the film was shot back in july when some of the biggest protests and worst violence happened . and i'm about no good luck and i didn't want to have someone to deal with getting a lot better. and i would also look in the system associate does my thunder that
