Fault Lines travels to Mi’kmaq territory in New Brunswick, Canada to find out what happens when a First Nation says no to fracking.
My latest film for Al Jazeera’s Fault Lines is now online outside the United States. Elsipogtog: The Fire Over Water was produced thanks to the cooperation and contributions of many people, particularly correspondent Wab Kinew, and DP Joel Van Haren. Franklin Lopez shot the great footage of the RCMP raid.

“Non-native support is growing and growing,” Edgar Clair of Elsipogtog said. “It’s becoming a bigger issue than a single corporation coming to bully us around. It’s becoming a small revolution – Canada’s going to change after this.”
"Life after Guantanamo" is online now, at least for those of you watching from outside the U.S. For this episode of Fault Lines, correspondent Wab Kinew, DP Saeed Taji Farouky and I traveled to Yemen where we worked with journalist Nasser Arrabyee. We wanted to find out what life is like for some of the men who were detained for years without charge at Guantanamo Bay prison, now that they’ve returned home. We also met families of current detainees and spoke with them about the hunger strike their sons and brothers were holding to call international attention back to Guantanamo. And we visited a former official in the Bush administration who was key in setting up the prison to begin with.
We doorstep in most Fault Lines episodes. This is from our new episode “Life after Guantanamo” that first aired Sunday night.
The episode airs again on Wed at 5:30p ET on Al Jazeera America and later this week (we’ll update this post) on Al Jazeera English. If you live outside the U.S., the episode will then be available in full on our YouTube channel.
This episode was produced by Andrea Schmidt, the Correspondent is Wab Kinew, and this part was filmed by Singeli Agnew.
The amazing digital team at Fault Lines has started making Tumblr really easy. (‘Cause it was really arduous before.) I’m reblogging a couple of posts about “Life after Guantanamo,” the episode for which we traveled to Yemen back in July.
Photos from Producer Andréa Schmidt from her new episode for Fault Lines, “Life after Guantanamo” airing tonight, Sunday, September 1, 2013 at 7 and 10p ET on Al Jazeera America. This episode premieres on Al Jazeera English later in the week and on both channel in repeat broadcasts.
In the episode, Fault Lines travels to Yemen to meet former Guantanamo detainees, and asks what have been the consequences of the US’ policy of indefinite detention. Photos were taken in Yemen.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a year since I’ve produced a film for Fault Lines. There’ve been upheavals and many changes - the consequences of which are manifesting themselves this month and which I’ll say more about in a future post. But for now, here’s a snapshot of an upcoming episode. I took it in Yemen back in July: Sana’a at dusk.
Last week’s episode of Fault Lines, in which we follow the money to the Republican and Democratic National Conventions during the most costly presidential election campaign in US history. Featuring Matt Taibbi, Bill Fletcher Jr., Thomas Frank, Robert Gibbs, and David Koch.
