• A Very Sicilian Justice: Taking on the Mafia - Featured Documentary

    Sicilian judge Antonino Di Matteo is one of the most threatened - and protected - men in Italy. As the chief prosecutor in Italy's "trial of the century", he has more than 20 bodyguards, ensuring his safety around the clock. On trial are 10 men who stand accused of being part of a conspiracy between the mafia and the state. Five of the defendants are mafia bosses and five are members of the political establishment, including senior police chiefs and politicians. Central to Di Matteo's case is the story of Italy's most famous anti-mafia judges, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino. During the 1980s they prosecuted hundreds of Cosa Nostra members in what was known as the Maxi Trial, the largest mafia court case in history. Four-hundred-and-seventy-five mafiosi were brought to court and 346 ...

    ISIL has been truly devastating to those it comes in contact with and bloody to those under its control. Its sudden rise and expansion in 2014 has perplexed many. It has humiliated its enemies, including those in Damascus, Baghdad, Tehran and Washington. Armed with extensive weaponry, boasting an international fighting force and adept in the art of digital media propaganda, the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant has become the de facto authority across an area the size of the United Kingdom.

    Croatian philosopher Srecko Horvat is going on a journey across Europe, searching for the connections between the crises he believes are tearing the continent apart. Unemployment, debt and an influx of refugees are often pointed to as the causes of a European identity crisis. But, Horvat asks, could they in fact be the results of it? He travels from Idomeni in Greece, where in 2015 refugees fleeing war and poverty entered Europe, to the dockyards of the Greek port of Pireaus, where workers' unions say they are fighting a new kind of privatisation, and from Romania, where people are fighting to protect their forests from international investment firms, to the City of London. Along the way, he argues that the real cause of Europe's identity crisis stems from the trauma of it colonising i...

But more recently leading western perfumers and Chinese investors have also been beguiled by its unique scent.

Sicilian judge Antonino Di Matteo is one of the most threatened - and protected - men in Italy. As the chief prosecutor in Italy's "trial of the century", he has more than 20 bodyguards, ensuring his safety around the clock. On trial are 10 men who stand accused of being part of a conspiracy between the mafia and the state. Five of the defendants are mafia bosses and five are members of the political establishment, including senior police chiefs and politicians. Central to Di Matteo's case is the story of Italy's most famous anti-mafia judges, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino. During the 1980s they prosecuted hundreds of Cosa Nostra members in what was known as the Maxi Trial, the largest mafia court case in history. Four-hundred-and-seventy-five mafiosi were brought to court and 346 were found guilty. "For over 130 years in Italy we pretended the mafia didn't exist. Not until Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino did we have magistrates in Sicily who said, 'No. The mafia in Italy exists. The mafia in Sicily exists. And it's the judiciary's duty to fight and try to destroy the mafia'," says Saverio Lodato, author of Forty Years of Mafia. The Cosa Nostra "boss of bosses", Salvatore "Toto" Riina, had been tried in absentia and sentenced to life in prison. After the trial, Riina allegedly sought revenge. Judge Giovanni Falcone was assassinated on May 23, 1992 near the mafia heartland of Palermo. Two months later, while investigating Falcone's murder, Judge Paolo Borsellino was also killed by a massive car bomb in Via D'Amelio, a residential street in Palermo. Inspired by these two judges, Di Matteo is now taking up where they left off. He is trying to shine a light on Italy's so-called season of terror from 1991 to 1994, when the mafia organised a series of bombings and murders to force a negotiation with the government. "I was brought up with the legend of Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino. I was a law student when they were working on the Maxi Trial. In those men ... I saw a chance to fight back," Di Matteo says. He has received a series of death threats. In an attempt to halt the trial, Riina, who is now behind bars, called for Di Matteo's assassination. He was caught on a prison CCTV camera telling a fellow prisoner: "So if we can, kill him. It'll be an execution like we used to have in Palermo." Many Italians have taken to the streets in solidarity with the judge. But there has been a notable silence from political leaders. "We citizens are angry. The more we realise that no one is interested in Dr Di Matteo, the angrier we become," says Linda Grasso, the founder of Civilian Bodyguards, a movement to protect the prosecutor. "I want to know the reason for this silence. What are they frightened of? Why are they silent? We can't allow this man, a hero to us, to suffer this silence and indifference from the institutions.... We want to protect our judges while they're alive, not commemorate them after their deaths." The threat to Di Matteo hasn't prevented the magistrate from attending the courtroom. The trial is ongoing and all of the accused deny the charges against them. "I am conflicted. To give up would be a personal defeat. But it would offer respite for me and my family. Finally, a margin of freedom. Maybe even tranquillity. But only maybe. Even if I gave up, it doesn't mean I would get fewer death threats," Di Matteo reflects. "We knew from the beginning that it would be an uphill struggle. A road littered with attacks, pitfalls, moments of difficulty. "I believe the truth about these massacres, which have made all decent Italians weep, can be found in the stories we are trying to open up. If we don't uncover our history we can't progress. We run the risk that this disease of the past that still plagues us today could infect our future." A Very Sicilian Justice, narrated by Helen Mirren, is an intimate portrait of an Italian judge living under constant threat as he tries to take on the mafia. Among those profiled in the film are a former mafia assassin-turned-state witness as well as Borsellino's brother, and the son of late former mayor of Palermo Vito Ciancimino, who was also known as "Don Vito". - 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/

Unemployment, debt and an influx of refugees are often pointed to as the causes of a European identity crisis. But, Horvat asks, could they in fact be the results of it? He travels from Idomeni in Greece, where in 2015 refugees fleeing war and poverty entered Europe, to the dockyards of the Greek port of Pireaus, where workers' unions say they are fighting a new kind of privatisation, and from Romania, where people are fighting to protect their forests from international investment firms, to the City of London. Along the way, he argues that the real cause of Europe's identity crisis stems from the trauma of it colonising itself. "I think Idomeni is the best metaphor for what's happening in Europe today," he reflects. "It shows people, refugees who were fleeing from war, and wars such as Syria - but also Afghanistan and Iraq - became a problem. Why? Because we are at a train track and they were blocking the train track. "So it became a problem for the corporations, for other countries, not only [for] Greece because this way was blocked. "So on the one hand what you can see is refugees don't have the right to move freely, [while] on the other hand goods can move freely as far and as much as they want." How, he asks, can this colonial process of dispossession be taking place on such a massive scale without becoming headline news? The answer, he explains, is that: "This 21st century colonialism doesn't ride into town waving a national flag, it just seems to happen." "But it's actually the result of institutions and rules that are designed to be hidden." It is those institutions and rules that Horvat hopes to expose in Europe's Forbidden Colony. - 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/

This exclusive Al Jazeera documentary is the incredible behind-the-scenes account of one man's extraordinary battle against judicial corruption in Ghana, one of sub-Saharan Africa's most developed countries. Over the course of two years, acclaimed investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas secretly filmed 12 of the country's High Court judges, 22 other judges, and 140 other court officials accepting bribes. In early September this year, despite huge pressure to keep his findings confidential, Anas released them to the Ghanaian public, unleashing an almost unprecedented crisis of confidence in the nation's judiciary - hitherto one of its most trusted and revered institutions. Justice! follows this most unconventional journalist, a qualified barrister in his own right, as these dramatic events come to a climax; revealing the complex moral and ethical dilemmas involved in an self-funded crusade that always looked likely to humble some of the most powerful men in the country, but which controversially also led to the release of alleged violent criminals from police custody. Although his identity is a closely guarded secret - because maintaining his anonymity is so crucial to working undercover - Anas has long enjoyed huge public support in Ghana and across Africa. Famously his work has even been endorsed by US President Barack Obama. But this this time even many of his friends feared he had bitten off more than he could chew, that the stakes were too high, that the risks to his safety were too great. This film tells of the huge political and personal pressures that saw Anas put his own and his family's lives on the line as the day of revelation drew near, the number of deaths threats increased and tense last-minute manoeuvring was needed to outwit the shadowy enemies trying desperately to stifle the story. The resulting scandal, which is still playing out, is changing the political landscape of the nation and its effects may be felt for years to come. As Kofi Annan, former UN Secretary- General and one of Ghana's most famous sons says in the film. "Sometimes it takes a spark, just a spark, and I think Anas has provided that spark for the whole edifice to blow up." One thing is certain - it makes for compelling viewing. -Subscribe to our channel: http://bit.ly/AJSubscribe -Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish -Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera -Check out our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

Croatian philosopher Srecko Horvat explores the recent rise of Europe's far right and asks if the continent is in a desperate search for sense. The film shows how Europe's colonialism is experienced by the minority ethnic population, who disproportionately feel the power of state surveillance and intrusion. "You look at Nice; Brussels; these are people from the miserable suburbs of Paris and Belgium. It's internal problems that are leading to the terrorist attacks. The people involved, the people who have been picked up by the police at least, have had very few shallow Islamic roots," explains Noam Chomsky, a prolific author on international relations and the origins of terrorism. "They're drawn to jihadism as a way out of degradation and humiliation and internal repression." Slavoj Zizek, a philosopher and psychoanalyst, argues that the rise of the right represents a new phenomenon emerging in Europe, where capitalism is now comfortable with authoritarianism, racism and xenophobia. "I think it is absolutely crucial that when we talk about [the] horror of new racism, anti-immigration ... that you read it as a symptom, or a reaction, of what is wrong with today's big global capitalism, that is the key," Zizek explains. Horvat also reflects that it's not just the right that reaches for nationalist and xenophobic legitimacy. He illustrates how mainstream politicians - through France's banning of the niqab and the Danes taking valuables from migrants - channel this anger toward migrants, refugees and even the idea of Europe itself. He also meets Gabor Vona, the leader of the far-right party Jobbik in Hungary, who claims they are not as interested in demonising minorities as attacking "the Establishment", who he believes are robbing the people. "Escaping from the Soviet Union, escaping from the communism, we thought joining the democratic European community would also bring us economic success. But then, we had to realise Hungary often appears, for Western companies' or multinational companies' capital, only as a market or cheap source of labour," Vona says. Horvat finally asks how Europe can free itself in the future. In this episode Horvat talks to MEP Nigel Farage, professor Noam Chomsky, Belgian youth worker Ihsane Haouach, Dr Corinne Torrekens, author of Islam in Brussels, philosopher Slavoj Zizek, leader of far-right Hungarian party Jobbick Gabor Vona, Hungarian philosophers Agnes Heller and Gaspar Tamas. French protesters at the Nuit Debout, the Greek No-Middle Man movement, leader of the campaign to remunicipalise Hamburg's electricity grid Wiebke Hanson, the Mayor of Friedland Wilfried Block and Syrian student Ihab Al Saleh, deputy Mayor of Barcelona Gerardo Pisarello and Mayor Ada Colau. - 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/

Raising its black flag over the rugged mountainous regions of Afghanistan, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has emerged as a new threat to the war-ravaged country as it battles the Taliban for supremacy. The Taliban are worried about the influx of foreign fighters who are believed to make up as many as half of ISIL's fighters [Al Jazeera] Employing violence and brutality to impose its will , Wilayat Khorasan, (the ancient name ISIL has chosen for the region made up of Afghanistan, Pakistan and parts of neighbouring countries), has emerged in seven different areas and vowed to step up operations, where the veteran fighters - the Taliban - once held sway. Fighting to reconstitute the historical Khorasan into the so-called "caliphate" of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the group says it has grand plans for the region, starting with uprooting the Taliban and the government of President Ashraf Ghani. Causing friction with the regional and overall leadership of the Taliban, armed battles have increased over the past few months with dozens of Taliban fighters killed in clashes, most notably in the Taliban stronghold of Nangarhar province. ISIL's local chapter has also managed to attract dozens of fighters from the Taliban's ranks into its fold, while foreign fighters unable to make it to Syria and Iraq have thronged to the group's territory. In ISIL and the Taliban, we look at the group's growing popularity, how it made steady inroads into the country, and the threat it poses for the future of Afghanistan . We gain unprecedented access to ISIL's central leadership and meet children as young as five years old being trained to fight and dedicate their lives to the 'caliphate'. Employing violence and brutality used by the group in Syria and Iraq, Wilayat Khorasan, (the ancient name ISIL has chosen for the region made up of Afghanistan, Pakistan and parts of neighbouring countries), has emerged in seven different areas and vowed to step up operations, where the veteran fighters, the Taliban, once held sway. Fighting to reconstitute the historical Khorasan into the so-called 'Caliphate' of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the group says it has grand plans for the region, starting with uprooting the Taliban and the government of President Ashraf Ghani. Causing friction with the regional and overall leadership of the Taliban, armed battles have increased over the past few months with dozens of Taliban fighters killed in the clashes, most notably in the Taliban stronghold of Nangarhar province. ISIL's local chapter has also managed to attract dozens of fighters from the Taliban's ranks into its fold, while foreign fighters unable to make it to Syria and Iraq have thronged to the group's territory. In ISIL and the Taliban we look at the group's growing popularity, how it made steady inroads into the country and the threat it poses for the future of Afghanistan.

The election of Donald Trump in November 2016 exposed a deep vein of distrust across the US, where millions have become disillusioned with a political and corporate elite out of touch with the sentiments of ordinary Americans. We explore the construction and mythology of the American Dream and uncover the reality of exclusion and denial. In this two-part series, we chart the history of post-Second World War America to uncover how race has dominated the political landscape and continues to shape American society. We reveal the nexus of political, corporate and institutional interests that created and now curtail a withering middle-class, pushing people into polarised camps, and now furthering disaffection with the traditional ‘establishment’. - 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/
