  • 0

After six years of fierce fighting and the deaths of hundreds of thousands of Syrians, Russia is now setting the agenda for an end to the conflict. The United States was notably absent from talks in the Black Sea resort of Sochi. As Putin looks to drive the peace process, will U.S. President Donald Trump take a back seat? And can peace really be achieved with Bashar Al-Assad still in power? Presenter: Jane Dutton Guests: Pavel Felgenhauer - Russia defence and foreign policy analyst.

Zimbabweans hopeful for better future post-Mugabe

  • 0

Zimbabwe's stock market has shed $6bn and its main index has slumped by 40 percent since last Wednesday, when the military seized power, which led to Robert Mugabe's resignation as president. Many are now hoping that Emmerson Mnangagwa, who will be sworn in as president on Friday, will turn the economy around and curb the country's huge unemployment crisis. Al Jazeera's Fahmida Miller reports from the town of Goromonzi, where she spoke to people about their hopes for the future. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Why do US authorities want protestors' Facebook accounts? - The Stream

  • 0

As US prosecutors continue to build a case against the so-called J20 defendants, they're asking for help from Facebook and DreamHost, a website-hosting company. Earlier this year, the Washington DC police department subpoenaed Facebook, demanding the company hand over the profiles of 200 people arrested over a protest that took place during President Donald Trump’s January 20th inauguration. Prosecutors say DisruptJ20.org coordinated rioting and they want the data to prove it. Privacy advocates, though, call the demand a “fishing expedition” aimed at uncovering political dissidents. The judge in the case has ruled in favour of the prosecution. However, Chief Judge Robert Morin ordered certain protections be put in place before authorities conducted any search. The judge also forbade investigators from sharing any information they gather with other government agencies. Judge Morin said his ruling protects the interests of all involved. But does it really? And does this case set a dangerous precedent for the sanctity of the information we all keep online? The conversation continues in part two of our discussion on the J20 protests.

White farmers thrive in Zambia years after driven from Zimbabwe

  • 0

One of former President Robert Mugabe’s most controversial policies was the land reform programme of 2000 which made it legal for black Zimbabweans to seize properties from white farmers - without compensation. The policy was meant to consolidate his support but resulted in thousands of white commercial farmers being driven off the land. They sought safety in neighbouring countries such as Zambia, where their skill and experience has had positive results.

New York cathedral struggles to save the oldest US organ

  • 0

The huge organ at St Patrick's Old Cathedral in New York City is the oldest one of its size in the US. But staff are concerned that the famous instrument might not make it to its 150th birthday next year. Church funds are low and there is a lot of work to be done on the organ. To celebrate the 150th birthday of the powerful instrument, they will be launching a fundraiser in order to gather money to fix it up. Music director Jared Lamenzo, who has become as much mechanic as he is musician, shows Al Jazeera what it takes to keep the organ's pipes in tune. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/
