6:33 pm
thorough. they can lock me up but they cannot lock up the truth the truth is always the truth whether in prison under torture or awaiting execution the truth is the truth. other organizers face 15 years in prison if found guilty of sedition and insulting the monarchy but protest leaders say the campaign cannot be crushed. yet. in the end no matter how many of us go to jail there will still be people outside that are still fighting. and. in the meantime the families carry the burden either of not knowing where their loved ones are are facing years of separation. joining us has rights activists. in bangkok she's been the subject of an ongoing investigation connected
6:34 pm
to her participation in a protest last summer and she faces possible jail time for that history where do things stand in thailand's democracy movement. right now it's kind of difficult because i mean. i mean of course because of the 900 situation as well. an outbreak happened last year in december and after that it cost pretty difficult for the movement to gain momentum the way it's had and mentally disturbed in detention in pretrial detention in relation to the protests last year so i mean is it time for everyone but we cannot do much just that we just have to keep fighting their way through and then maybe thinking about different wears off protests instead of going out and then taking this what we did
6:35 pm
here because it's now almost impossible. i want to talk about your case what are you being accused of and what did you do that you believe was within your rights. basically i. talking about the less much as there was the heaviest charge that i mean i'm facing so i gave the speech in the protest last year in so there are no wimber in front of 11 minute tweet in fan tree so basically i just call for the reform or do we if you are off the list much as the law which is the law in saudi monarchy and i actually didn't talk about defeat good himself or anyone in his family so basically i just core that what your farmer you and base your reporter on freedom is praise and then we talk about the law into a total of 70 and so you talk about the cases in thailand and then he said that's
6:36 pm
no. or less much as they endure more cryptic countries so i quote it that. and that appeared in my complaint paper that the police told me on. 21st of december when i replied it myself so in this part i think it's basically because i didn't talk about securing the queen or the air or the region them so so is just calling for the repeal you already have many men on the bar. and just quoting someone else now you talked about the pandemic slowing things down a bit and the fact that leaders have also been arrested the government has been in moveable in the face of mass demonstrations in your country what do you think it will take for the political system to change. i mean 1st of all. it's important for the we ok last year i mean
6:37 pm
if you followed to the most recent demands or to criticize demands that 3 things so the 1st thing is resubmission of the problem is the the 2nd thing is we drop off the constitution and the 3rd thing is we fall off the monarchy and of course these 3 things have to go along together and but what to take for this change in the political this is the we drop off the constitution at this point because it's a clue the country cannot really move forward with the constitution we are using right now. too many laws in the constitution and the upper house would i mean i'm sure you know about it already but this is the main thing that the house that has meet elected or not are appointed by the little rico commission would have difficulty the right to vote
6:38 pm

6:39 pm
human rights lawyer remember omar called khan's comments ignorant dangerous and condemn nable another woman deal obeid posted it's hard enough being a woman in this country we honestly deserve better than this and in my own zeinab my theory has here tweeted the only place where blame rests is with the rapist and the system that enables him. we have. joining us to talk more about this penis we just saw some of the tweets in response to the prime minister's comments can you tell us a little bit more about how people have reacted. hi melissa so pakistanis are angry they're frustrated that their leader prime minister of pakistan harbors such problematic view was that links women's clothing to sick should while in a game style and you know what that research has rejected these kind of few was across the board my twitter timeline was filled with angry tweets actually
6:40 pm
schooling the prime minister dead rape is a much more complicated crime and the crime and it's not only did it did do sexual frustration there actually they were actually schooling that minister that it's a more of a rape it's more of a show of what authority does she and woman and her family they were also women activists 3 thing and asking a prime minister to actually apologize on his statement prime minister of pakistan said in his statement i did all these people in this society who have low we have no bill dick i'm going to adhere to that dish and so he was actually implying that if the women covered their bodies they were not beauty and this kind of women rights activists say that this kind of statement is problematic and they actually us for him to apologize to public on the statement. has quite a few opinions about women in their place and role as a society and for a former cricketer who traveled the world he's quite disparaging of what he calls

6:42 pm
women's rights protest last month what did you see and what do women of pakistan want yeah so i was at the march it's a nascent movement but it's very provocative and bold a woman's right movement has a history in pakistan but this movement recently started back as any woman in one street i was there on an 8 march international mainstay the use slogans that you sports does duns and other form of art to express that anger against government against religious scholars who have not been able to give rights to the woman they deserve and this kind of bored ness is not really well accepted by the conservative segments of the society it's a grassroots movement but because of of the openness and the born ness and anger these women show on the streets. it's not really accepted by the kinds of it gives and unfortunately these women are fighting the fight alone without any backing of

6:45 pm
meanwhile here in germany a massive effort is under way to preserve the victims memory volunteers are digitizing millions of records of people imprisoned and slaved and murdered by the nazi regime and it's all happening in the tiny town of. here's more. tucked away in an industrial hall in western germany isn't inconceivable room the hour olsen archives with 17500000 names of people persecuted by the nazis the most extensive archive of its kind index cards from concentration camps deportation lest clothing remnants from exuma bodies. there are the names of jews forced laborers concentration camp prisoners an unprecedented memory of suffering. the goal is to make the archive available online for everyone to use taking part in
6:46 pm
the digital tagging of the millions of slips of paper is a new way of remembering the action hash tag every name counts is an invitation for everyone to participate. you just need access to the internet and you come to our website and from there you can access documents you can put the names and birthdates of nazi victims into our database and then these names will be published and will be accessible worldwide forever for everybody globally who can just sign that fight. go to your show from both of them is one of 17000 fallen tears already digitizing documents and the records are handwritten in old fashioned script or with abbreviations were simply illegible no automatic machine can transfer these last biographies into. current technology it must be done by hand. and that's really the on the one hand it of course benefits the people who are looking for someone and can't completely trace their history but it also helps us
6:47 pm
to be even more aware of what happened back then and to deal with the topic in a completely different way yes i'm often against under the guise of the chef to. go to yosh works in city government she says that's further motivation to participate in this project because people like her used to fill out these cards and were part of the un just nazi state. the random generator shows you go to yosh a document for a viennese man indicates how i fled years back became a political prisoner in 1943 by simply reading a leaflet in the future everyone will be able to trace the story of. he came to boston vida via oceans allied documents show that he survived the war by migrating biographies to the internet the arrows in archives are helping preserve memories and to prepare us for everyday life. charities and i think raising awareness of the

historical depth of discrimination and patterns of discrimination anti semitism racism that's not history that's still happening today every day in europe and all over the world. 17.5000000 names and every single one counts. so far they are as an archives have digitized 3 and a half 1000000 documents and these days the art world is also going to digital with investors spending enormous sums on artworks that exists only on computer networks until now digital art was so easy to copy that it didn't make much sense financially but now that's changed and the implications for the art market her huge . the magic word is n f t or non fungible token and it's revolutionizing the art market this technology
6:49 pm
records the owner's identity in a blog change while the work itself remains publicly visible on the web for anyone to see. so and it is a technical stand there to me additional work of art were any dish that any i. guess it was unique so you get. me. was the artist what was the edition size and that you bought it and if you are the rightful owner in this online gold rush a flying cap sold for $650000.00 but 21st several 1000000. crypto cats are virtual basketball cards sold for millions. and now christie's has got on board auction ing every days from artist people as its 1st tokenized piece. the sale not only meant recognition for digital art but
6:50 pm
it's helped christie's reap millions in a win win situation. job or just get him of us but i think when there is money at stake people take things seriously so many people who used to not really take this art form seriously are now having a closer look and that's great and then of course the artist who created this work will go down in art history on that site so it's not a conspiracy timestream. the buyer was a singapore based fund that had made a fortune with crypto currency 90 percent of the bidders at christie's were unknown is a new crypto elite divvying up the market. people they're all right now. they're . come to the market forms with really open i don't have much knowledge of the art market and our enemy. and just really go by.
6:51 pm
that could up end the traditional dominance of art galleries and museums when it comes to determining what art is valuable and important for crypto art could turn out to be an unprecedented speculation bubble but even if that bubble bursts it's still likely to shake up the art market. and let's talk a little more about how and the f t's are shaking out the art market i've got d.w. reporter michael kruger here with me so mike a lot of people are asking is this the new art market or is it just a bubble what do you think well 1st of all 2 words have met here on the one hand this young man a generation newts with a pocket full of bitcoins cryptocurrency and on the other hand the very professional investors who are not really interested in art. yeah and this is maybe the reason why we have these incredible sums that being paid right now if the value
6:52 pm
of trip to really increase in the future is something we still don't know the excitement will go down i'm quite sure and the odds will return at the sunset again but nevertheless people like me pull will be a chapter in the history of art where there's a lot of excitement now also though in the music industry some people are saying and if these are going to shake up that world what's that about. well they're really threatening the monopoly of streaming services right now with the subscription based economic models because after the streaming services the record labels the musicians seem to be at the end of the food chain and this could change with an f.t.c. they are back in the control the music is back in their hands and they can decide the value of a song. so this is a really thrilling development and the list of musicians were experimenting with and of teas is growing longer and longer we have festival grimes we have show man
6:53 pm
this and the king of limbs for example but everyone in the music world is that into n f t's there with the with the criticism well in the moment it's still a very exclusive circle right now because if you buy in and see and if the music you you were by it or you woodstock and that means it's it works just for the musicians who are already very famous i mentioned grimes for example and she's already rich hospital is one of the richest man in the world and another really big question is what happens when the own a dice is ownership of an n.f.t. inherited and but one thing is quite clear once you own it and if t. it's really safe from being stolen well i'm going to leave it there for now my krueger thanks so much because speaking of theft and art theft dutch police have arrested
