he's a lifelong supporter of the sandinista revolution i think given that the vote he then of us are coming up i know that is you probably want to talk about tourism and make people visit for the beaches what is the relevance of nicaragua to a country like britain that a leader of the opposition should have cared so much about your policy in managua and nicaragua the people who continue to maintain that what happened last year in nicaragua where peaceful demonstration is and it was all the result of government reparation a peaceful demonstration and now i it was a coup d'etat attempt backed by the united states who ignore that 24 police were killed 400 in one police wounded by gunshot they also ignore statements by the president vice president secretary of state and national security advisor of the united states of america as to the u.s. aggression against nicaragua why then we hearing i should say we hearing
9:31 am
things about venezuela in this country the prime minister the outgoing prime minister trey's m a has been talking saying the venezuelan government basically should be overthrown and we're hearing from the so-called left in this country that your government is a be user of human rights because there's human rights reports that are totally one sided the human rights reports do not report 9 state actors it's a major structural flaw which makes this one sided and it's used by those who want to promote fake information widely so for example when bismarck martina's city worker and the government is driving to visit his family in a tepi and one of the barricades of the terrorists during their events of last year captured. him just
9:32 am
a city worker he was tortured and then murdered others have been burnt but that doesn't figure in the human race reports white figure is the police liberating neighborhoods that have been invaded there was neighborhood and home invasions by these terrorists and when the police go in they say the police are representing in the fake news it's picked up massively and their corporate international media and the united states was financing this it's open record of how much money was given to the media and the politicians who are involved in the u.s. claims it was humanitarian aid not good to us and when we do support for democracy is one of the things tonight when don was being created the yeah exactly they create an enclave of pro u.s. journalists pro u.s. activists pro us politicians and when it when you get to a critical time like that coup attempt they're all activated the left continue to
9:33 am
say that you are a sellout sundanese they're really don't know what they're talking about because. in the 1970 s. and 1970 s. there was the struggle against some osa dictatorship in the eighty's the struggle against the us cocaine financed cocaine financed look at the movie made in america with tom cruise or the movie about the san jose reporter who he web yeah you know who was whose life was ruined because he was reporting a he would go in you know and then coming to do a lot of this when he went to intel pro you know through using cointelpro is going now something like the days of cointelpro exposed by the late gary webb you think that that kind of thing is going on now the media really fly in and slow their fine and you know the whole thing is that the iran contra. and it was a spin it was
9:34 am
a spin that the administration could survive it was a spin to distract attention from the real scandal which was the cia a coke cocaine scandal and who knows if the cia and i could survive and they got ministrations survived a scandal about their being the sores of the cocaine epidemic in the black and latin neighborhoods of the united states in the 1980 s. but what i'm going at is to answer your previous question a story that i may be able to fill in the 80 that are our objective was a survive surviving became the object of not really delivering the promise of the revolution ok but what i don't know what i would buy now i would say albeit that he said that other countries in the in the so-called backyard have suffered which were pro-american have suffered much was why would he say that. that basically
9:35 am
nicaraguan responds to repeated attacks from the north as being on the sanctions really nor has been corruption in the sound of these does and repression of the population in the that's ridiculous that's absolutely ridiculous the conning me between 20112018 has been growing at 5 percent per annum and average. this is the 3rd highest growth rate in latin american and caribbean only after a dominican republic and panama extreme poverty has been reduced the world economic forum extremes of hiring has been reduced from 17 percent to 6 percent so you see the advance of women the advance of the poor the advance of the indigenous people we are now in a period of harvesting results for the nicaraguan people that we fought for so hard but couldn't deliver in the eighty's because the objective became survival
9:36 am
that's not something that is to the to the liking some people in miami that we have a christian social distance out a dairy model that works to say don't have what is a state of health care and right now nicaragua has a universal free health care system a national health service i mean if you're a good health care system agent christian there and we have a picture of your president with the pope over there why did the pope appear to say both sides when it came to this you seem to be alleging u.s. backed coup against the government in nicaragua i disagree the vatican has been very positive and looking for a negotiation that leads to a national reconciliation and national unity after. the rights because nicaragua has been under attack for bt rights for its rights for women as regards that is also ridiculous it's false knows it washington is bad abortion is going to ride
9:37 am
with us friend day sunday needs to have said vans diversity sexual diversity explicitly and vigorously this is a very conservative society this advance in women and this vance and l g b t rights are very significant in such a conservative society you were at a conference then finally on defend media freedom sponsored by canada and the british foreign office obviously as i told you i was banned. what did you make of the conference on media freedom and a lot of people saying that your government attacks journalists attacks media freedom in nicaragua you were at the conference i should add was 77 miles away from where julian the songes imprisoned i invite. i invite your television audience to go into it up inside and. go into confidentiality cargoes for and i'm not sure moto to go into the printer going back across time or look at
9:38 am
don't know t.c. as before when it was operating and look at the enormous pressure freedom i don't know of another country where people could call for the violent overthrow of the government day after day of the day after day without consequence it was a bullet with thank you after the break as extinction rebellion protests just take to the streets of london today on the 3rd anniversary of turing's amaze premiership game of thrones start environmental activist droom flynn the conservative environmental policy destroys the minds of working people as well that's and. so on. but is everything ok with u.k. labor needed colin as he promotes tony blair's war mandarins all this and more coming up in part 2 of going on the ground.
9:39 am
sashing stressed to no longer post this event about nash and the bill of books set up. to. stop the show was so huge she didn't taste a piece traditionally sent me so i pushed it all shall. go to which she never happened and i know what you mean in our midst which you took a moment of me for to share. your thoughts on the show through my eyes your bone structure be. good to mr ellsworth. with them to the spirit over 4 years you seem to be an arguable that it's a studio actually the person to be vocal for should still speak and speak.
9:40 am
expressed she. was 16 and he the idea of monitor ization the global central banks cooperating to put out a currency unit of accounts that was better than gold is a 6070 year experiment that is now collapsing which is leading to d. dollars a synaesthete countries like russia move aggressively away from the dollar and buy gold and did globalization simultaneously. the world is driven by shaped by.
9:41 am
the day or thinks. we dare to ask. welcome back in the dying days of teresa mayes to use donald trump's term foolish premiership she had to answer questions just as a scandal forced britain's man in washington to quit his job the whole cabinet rightly gave its full support to the came on tuesday so kim has given her kid has given a lifetime of service to the united kingdom and we owe him an enormous debt of gratitude the whole cabinet supported him but he still quits not exactly a ringing endorsement of foreign secretary jeremy hunt's foreign policy cache anyway what did about the labor leader jeremy corbyn have to say about the mandarin 1st brought in to number 10 by alleged war criminal tony blair to regret the resignation of succumbed i think the comments made about him are beyond unfair and
9:42 am
wrong i think he's given on noble and good service and he should be thanked for it and i think the whole house should join together in deeply regretting the feeling that he's obviously got that he must resign at this moment yes that's foremost stop the war chairman jeremy corbin paying homage to a man promoted after tony blair's destruction of iraq not only that so kim became national security advisor after wiki leaks cable gate it was on to him the julian assange would be arbitrarily detained in the ecuadorian embassy in london mind you it is corbin who was promoted to kids storm or to be his shadow brecht's at secretary and he is implicated in prolonging swedish allegations against the wiki leaks founder arguably the left and right don't like or going on just as if it's the labor party actually really cared about the ending injustices they'd have done a downside more when they were in power. corbin had been asking about the internationally condemned legal aid slashing policies of theresa may but she and the b.b.c. a much more interested in battering him over alleged bigotry in
9:43 am
a week when he didn't say a word to defend a lie chris williamson is the right honorable gentleman is really interested in tackling in just to say it's the biggest injustice he should tackle is in his own. the party and deal with it i'm sure that is corbin tried to defend himself while she hears about the lecturing how about the investigation into islamophobia in iraq . but why doesn't corbin speak up for those who have been thrown out of labor after attacking islamophobia he could even have name checked know him chomsky educating a whole generation of lobby journalists because the jewish intellectual is on the record for defending corbin what has happened to his principles may be seen or you're a skeptic all his life now he perhaps remain and he's truly living up to the words of marx there is my principles and if you don't like them i've got authors was.
9:44 am
i know the rocks on which angela is keen to get to this that when the main knocks is was really going to point out to those were the words not of car but of crouch out call famously said the point was to change the world in one m.p. question may 3 years to the day she became pm about her commitment to the most important issue in the world i am please see the prime minister is wearing green i hope it is not merely agree mosh as i welcome the fact that good unless safety nets are 2050 but before they did when they talk this week a big committee for climate change already reports they were going to miss their target and today they said that the policy ambition implementation now fall well short of what is required but with parliament gridlock by breck's it is arguably fall into those outside of westminster to blow the whistle on the imminent climate catastrophe from the that reactor mark rylan stew the extinction rebellion
9:45 am
activists protesting in london today they are backed by the activist and star of game of thrones jerome flynn who is most recently been supporting the fight against factory farms in northern ireland he joins me now jerome welcome to going under. around so we had the great british naturalist documentary maker david out of bird parliament dogging about the importance of activism in the environment tell me about the campaign against factory farms in northern ireland something you got involved enjoying or thought about when you're feeling a with i think. they're wonderful tracey who who started farms not factories who's an extremely passionate woman who's been fighting to bring an end to factory farming the horrors of it she got in touch with me when i was there filming i didn't know what was going on and i think she saw a nice link there the fact that we were filming very near lock for oil and in the beautiful northern irish countryside and i had no idea what was being proposed and
9:46 am
planned and already put in place in place in some cases for northern ireland and that's for some reason they something's got through the net in northern ireland there's things that are being proposed and being allowed that it's bad enough in the u.k. generally but in northern ireland there's been some leniency in terms of the wards of the laws of what's being allowed through but the locals i mean we're talking for this particular one in lima vadi. 80000 pigs 80000 pigs in inside. unable to see the light of day or ever feel earth underneath their feet that alone for me is a horror it's something that i really hope that we can look back on and because you know ashamed that that that was ever allowed to happen i hope that we get to that point where if we don't then it's not going to be a world worth living in and i think it's it's just an example of how supremely
9:47 am
separated we have become from ultimately i think ourselves because we are part of nature we are intimately in kinship with it and our indigenous and sisters would naturally known but the nature of our modern life colonialism and materialism has brought to this point where we are able to treat these beautiful sentience sensitive being as if they're just not alive and don't have any senses and what these pigs that alone just from a point of view of cruelty it's like why is that being allowed why is our government supporting that and encouraging it. with these incentives for anaerobic digesters. so there's that and then there's the pollution than the how it affects the human population the environment the local. the local population of northern ireland there that that particular operation they would spread it would produce $66000.00 tons of slurry of pig. i'm told that's the equivalent of
9:48 am
273000 humans in one year and in limb of adi there's just something like 23000 humans so that's then spread on the fields the ammonia levels. for that like they're going way over the creek critical levels the 3rd is going into the water systems into the lake 76 percent of protected. areas environmental areas and lakes the ammonia levels of gone skyrocketed from every angle you look at it they're taking away the small family farms they want to put factories which have nothing to do with farming and you could see that because i mean there's me that apparently since the tories and liberal democrats have been into the 201126 percent rise in the us in terms of you know tree. farms so in between scenes of game of thrones you could look out on the fields and see the intensive ones in the northern to know i've only learned about this since because i
9:49 am
didn't have you know we did not like we had a lot of time to stroll around in a herd check out there and invariably we would be captured within somewhere where you know just for the cameras sake you weren't able to my mind wasn't on farming although there is some damage being done but it's not they're not it's not as if the local farmers are cashing in on it he's a businessman who see an opportunity to make from the amount of of they put in the anaerobic digesters they make money back its business the money goes to the city of london here well that's a lot of where the investment is coming to build these factories it's people who just see a business opportunity so in terms it has no connection to farming the pork is then exported to china understand from. the activist groups. trying to fight it in the verde but what do you make of that when the phrase the british government uses is going for growth yeah woodrow think of the phrase well. this is whole thing about growth and progress which has infected
9:50 am
a modern culture and our politicians tongues. that that seems to be the most important thing some kind of economic growth. for me the only thing that now in terms of the situation we're in with the planet and the environment and now some top scientists are saying we've got 5 years to radically turnaround the the carbon emissions in the climate crisis i mean growth. is caring for the whole it's looking after our the wellbeing of our young people the well being of our environment that's growth that's progress and everything else in the name of growth and progress. actually goes against that they would have you think when you saw the beaches of extinction or billions of drill and. i'm grateful for it we have it's like this is a situation that needs to change and is to change not in 23 years time it needs to change now and i'm encouraged i'm deeply moved by by the people that are saying no
9:51 am
and you know gretta therm berg 15 year old who's inspiring a revolution amongst the young she sees a very black and white and she's inspired me and she's and she's giving me hope and kind of breaking something open in me when i see young people passionate about their plan planet because i remember when i was 15 i read i think some books some guy a book which was predicting all this for now and i was i had no idea and i was desperate and bless my mom and i was i remember being in tears in the kitchen and my mom bless her because she's my mom and she want didn't want me to worry too much and she was like you can't you can't make a difference now you're only 15 you've got to get on with your life and don't and i did but are young children and i'm young and it's not like i regret that and i love my mom for caring about it but now it's like i'm so grateful that i am people that
9:52 am
are rising up and if anybody's going to because it's hard for us especially politically and for our peers of our generation so much shame and guilt i think about where we've got to grief that we're not actually. expressing but it's when you've got a young people saying what are you doing and you know the come our last breaths you know what how do we want our young people on our children to remember us i think the author of the go will james lovelock is about a 100 now do you think these are books you re more on the curriculum because the ricky late home or it was hard mike grew up you learn about curricular i mean in terms of education and what will what our young people are learning and what the em where the emphasis should be again it's still some much about growth and progress you know career and making it number one should be their mental health their wellbeing in terms of everything they're facing into just the for just being born an you know into the culture that we've and they at there and sis's have
9:53 am
created that you think there's we were of the reasons for the success a game of thrones or words millennial salou gives them or grade away and do understanding these big geo political the ems of the term of grose's while i think the some wonderful comparisons there and a very big method for which george george are martin said he wasn't aware of when it was right in the books but he's just become aware of them i believe subconsciously something going it was going on there with george the something pretty extraordinary bout the fact that their most i think popular program it's ever existed in terms of a global war the it's is portraying the story where you've got this human condition in the all these warring families it's based on our medieval history and they're fighting for power you know to sit at the to take the seat of power and they have to actually forget the difference it's him come together to take on this threat
9:54 am
that is threatening the existence you know the whole of the survival of the species that's where we're at now. the that's what our top scientists are telling us i don't know who else we can turn to turn to screw us cause or because we we were talking about more than sort of the greatest actors and write a great itself and one of the greatest activists as well yeah i mean he just 7 sponsorship severed ties with the royal shakespeare company is going to be peaceful and the ship what is going on would be acting fraternity are they suddenly realizing that the earth is in dire straits well marks been months a very very aware sensitive man so he's been there while i don't think he's just suddenly woken up to it. except i think as the facts of rolled in over the last 3 or 4 years the realisation of where we're really are at so you know i am grateful to mark for doing that and the more for whatever reason our culture is put actors in this position where they can have an influence even though i actually don't
9:55 am
think mark was doing that to have an influence he just saying well i can't work for these people why would i why you know it's like. it's bad is trading in slavery. because you're trading in the lives of the generations to come so. all power to him and i totally support that that move and hopefully they are see you will. think twice about where they're getting their support so how can we get involved with the campaign as regards in terms of for me so there is. there's a petition there's a petition there's a couple but there's one particular so there's a change dot org has a petition which is to stop us intensive stuff style farming coming to britain and farms not factories. is a wonder there's this wonderful platform which tracey set up and has been going years so you can go to farms not factories and find everything you need and we need
9:56 am
to we need to let the government know that we care about our animals and we care about those ironically it'll be some breaks or tears was it was the european union's fault that all this intensive forming was kicking off where we now britain can finally do the kinds of things you have again i don't really care what they will use what they may or may or may not say or what leave campaigns may say this is just the facts. both of you enjoyed that episode of going underground will continue showing your favorite episodes from this season and you are back for a brand new season on wednesday the 11th of september until then keep it up via social media and don't forget our you tube channel series. i.
