presents... kids behind bars: a soledad o'brien special report only on al jazeera america >> announcer: this is al jazeera. hello there, you're watching the newshour live from london. coming up... >> i'm running for president, i hope you'll join me on this journey hillary clinton launches her campaign to run for the u.s. presidency in 2016 fierce fighting continues in yemen as the saudi-led coalition promises to help tribal fighters defeat the houthis a syrian government air

strike near an aleppo school is said to kill nine children and teachers. plus... >> i'm on the island in costa rica, and we'll show you how a women's collective worked hard to save the mangrove swamps. >> and sport - the final round of the marathon and a drama in cycling hello. after weeks of speculation hillary clinton finally declared that she is running for the democratic nomination to become the next president of the united states. posting on twitter, the former secretary of state and first lady said she wanted to be a champion for every day americans, her second attempt to secure the top job after being beaten by president obama in the
5:02 pm
2008 primary race. >> i'm running for president. americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is stacked in favour of those at the top. every day americans need a champion. i want to be that champion. you can do more than get by you can get ahead and stay ahead. when families are strong americans are strong. so i'm hitting the road to earn your vote because it's your time, and i hope you'll join me on this journey. >> we have two correspondents covering the story. we'll speak to tom ackerman live in demoyne, iowa where hillary clinton is expected to head to next. first, let's take you to gabriel outside hillary clinton's headquarters in new york. she launched her campaign with a
5:03 pm
message. what message was that trying to send do you think? >> i think there was two things the message she was trying to get out with the video. number one is she's going to frame herself as the candidate of middle class america. that is clear from the message by this video, and she was trying to cast the net far and wide on who she wanted to cast in her campaign. there were little profiles of various people in the video, and two gay couples, two brothers speaking spanish, a stay-at-home mum, an african-american couple a young asian american woman and a retiree, she was truly trying to give the initial message that she is going to be the candidate of middle class, working class americans and cast a net far, a wide net, attracting as much of
5:04 pm
the cross section of america as she can. >> how much do you think her campaign will play on the fact that she's trying to become the first female president of the united states? >> well interestingly enough in 2008 that was not a big part of the campaign. most of the people close to her indicated that that is going to change this year in this election. something is different. she is going to try to speak up about the fact that it would be historic if elected, and play on the personal story more. unlike 2008, hillary clinton is a grandmother after chelsea clinton gave birth to a child recently. these an a part of the story that a lot of people don't know well. she's a politician but really
5:05 pm
is a celebrity, not only internationally, but here in the united states, she was first lady and senator and secretary of state, this is the second time she has run for president. a lot of people know hillary clinton, or think they know her. she's a polarizing figure but they are trying to play up i think, the fact that a little more of her personnel story, one being the fact that she would be the first woman president. we'll see that she's going to start her campaign in the days and weeks with small gatherings with voters intimate settings. no big campaign rallies, and here in brooklyn you wouldn't know it was the headquarters if you weren't told that it was, there's no signs, and little almost no activity all day. that is by purpose. they want the focus on hillary clinton, and her getting out to middle america, to some of the
5:06 pm
small or medium sized states. she doesn't need votes in new york or brooklyn but in the other stairs and that's where she'll most of her attention. >> thank you, tom ackerman is live in demoyne, the state of iowa that is where we expect her campaign to properly get under way. >> right. keep in mind that it's nine months until the iowa caucuses which begins the cycle of primary elections by which the democratic candidate will win the nomination here in iowa everyone remembers, and hilary most of all, that she suffered a drubbing at the hands of president obama in 2008. many people thought that she campaigned as though in was a coronation, that she was taking
5:07 pm
it for granted. and this time she will not be doing that. this campaign will be focused and methodical. this was an important test if she fails that will not be a sign for the nomination. keep in mind that she is the overwhelming favourite in all the polls in terms of her rivals. in fact she leads all the polls by double digits and no major candidate announced that they are prepared to challenge her yet. >> yes, and she's obviously well-known and presumably money will not be a problem. running to become president of the united states takes a lot of cash doesn't it? >> it does.
5:08 pm
president obama spent more than a billion in the campaign to win re-election in 2012. by every indication hillary clinton will have to and intends to collect more than that, there's indication that according to one source in the media, one fundraiser she probably collect more money in the last few weeks than the rest of the entire republican field. there are about seven or eight reasonably significant candidates in that field. and, of course republicans are no - don't shirk when it comes to collecting money. that will be an important part of it. this time - in the last primary campaign she ran out of money, because she was saving money for the general campaign. that money can't be co-mingled. with no given candidate to
5:09 pm
challenge her, it's not clear that she'll raise that money in the immediate future. >> it will be fascinating to see. >> tom ackerman live in dooum ape -- du mini. >> this is hillary clinton's second run. >> reporter: hillary clinton spent most of her adult life in the public eye, first an a first lady, and a senator. now she'll try for the presidency. she was close in 2008, but lost to president obama. >> although we weren't able to shatter that highest, hardest glass ceiling this time thanks to you it's got about 18 million cracks in it. [ cheering ] >> reporter: in this campaign shell have to walk a fine line she can't be seen as being too close to president obama, he's not wide by popular, but can't distance herself too much.
5:10 pm
>> what she needs to do is communicate to a lot of constituencies that are close to president obama that he has done a lot for them and she'll do as much or more. she can't distance herself too much. she losses progressesive, ethnic minorities, but needs to appeal to independence. >> reporter: she could have another issue. her name. with jed bush jumping into the campaign, there's complains about family dynasties. >> the presidency of the united states is not a crown to be passed between two families. trust is an issue, she faces controversy, using a private email acts secretary of state consider and admits to deleting tens of thousands of emails government records are supposed to be preserved. republicans claim she is covering something up.
5:11 pm
sheasby far the strongest democratic candidate and best positioned to raise the millions that the campaign needs. the or thing she is going for is experience, not just in the white house, but in the race for it. she's done it with her husband and on her open. now she's hoping the fourth time is the charm. >> i found my own voice. within moments of hillary clinton's announcement the whistle blowing website wikileaks has put 5,000 documents by hillary clinton online many said to refer to her time as u.s. secretary of state. simon rosenberg is president of a think tank and advisor to bill clinton and joins us from washington d.c. thank you for being on the programme. her name, the clinton name gives her advantages. could it be a hindrance. there may be people out there
5:12 pm
that want a change is this. >> i think where things stand today is hillary clinton may be the most prepared and the candidate in the strongest position to run for president in the united states in the modern era of politics. we may have to go back to eisenhower in 1952 to have a candidate of this stature and level of experience and not facing a competitive primary in her own party. for all the down sides and troubles she starts off in an unbelievably strong position and ready to go. >> is that not, though a weakness. democrat party. does it show the democrats do not have the calibre of candidates needed. >> but we only need one. the key thing for president we only need one. clearly today we have the best candidate, the most experienced and the one most ready to go and be president on day one. so look i would rather there
5:13 pm
be a competitive primary, let me be clear. if there isn't, the democrats, compared to the republican field - she looks good. she is leading the polls. importantly, this roll out felt professional today. for those in the classes, and those wondering if this will be a well-run campaign she's off to a strong start. this has been well done. >> how will the campaign differer from 2008, one where many said it was dysfunctional. >> first of all, we know someone is in charge. john pedesker is playing a role. he announced the campaign showing that there's a chief. that is important. i agree with you. it was not a well run campaign she sort of blew it. i think they learnt. i was on a call earlier with john and other people in the campaign going through what
5:14 pm
they are going to do. it was well run professional thoughtful humble. there's a lot of humility. if you look at the earlier video today. there's a sense of humility in the video. i think they understand that they have to make this about the american people and not about her. this initial - the launch was strong in that regard. >> the campaign video concentrated on domestic policies. what about foreign policies. the secretary of state - she is experienced on the world stage. how is her policy to the middle east going to differ from obama? >> my own view that i don't think there'll be differences between hillary clinton and president obama in the next year and a half. there may be small ones. she'll run on the fact that president obama was a good president. we got a lot done. now there's more to do.
5:15 pm
i don't think you'll see her distancing herself. al gore did that in 2000 it didn't work. all of us the clinton people saw that happen and i don't think she'll replicate those mistakes the 2008 mistakes or the 2000 mistakes. on the middle east she said the policies would come. i think, you know what we know is that president obama is challenging the status quo in the middle east trying to bring about a better day in an aggressive way. i'm proud of him, and i think that this will be a major part of the debate in the united states in this election in 2015 and 2016 i wish we could talk further, but we are out of time. thank you for coming on the programme. >> i'll be happy to come back. >> great. >> still to come on the newshour. >> decision time in sudan. voters prepare for the elections on monday. the contest is causing controversy. it was a dream for me to

5:17 pm
weeks. saudi arabia said it killed more than 500 houthi fighters and has the support of yemen's tribes will provide them ground support to confront the houthi rebels. >> translation: there has been considerable interaction with the yemeni tribes. they declared their loyalty to the sovereignty and abd-rabbu mansour hadi and to defend yemeni citizens and resources. we are working with them to coordinate operations and provide support so the military operations will have effective icons. the yemeni president abd-rabbu mansour hadi appointed a vice president, who is considered popular. let's hope his appointment will help lead to a negotiated solution. he was held under house arrest by the houthis recently
5:18 pm
laurent fabius is in the arabian country and will support their efforts in yemen. >> translation: until a solution is found that respects the legitimacy of the government on the ground and ends a conflict in a country close to saudi arabia, france expressed availability in helping to find the right solution. >> we go to the border town of jizan, and we see that there may be problems coordinating the yemen tribes. >> they say if they get the heavy weapons, the rockets, they can mount assistance to prevent the houthis from inside yemen. the tribes all of them have historic ties with saudi arabia and a long border with the saudi kingdom. they are ready as they said in many statements. let's always remember that the
5:19 pm
tiaz are not coordinated or united. they exercise or they move separately and with a lot of chaos in the movement. i think that if they are - if their efforts are not coordinated, if they don't have ground support and advisors and people that can unite there'll be problems in the ability to confront the houthis. a syrian government air strike near a school killed five children and four female teachers in the northern city of aleppo. the aleppo media center and syrian syrian observatory for human rights say many children were injured. this latest attack comes a day after rebel shelling and air strikes killed more than 30 people. >> reporter: the u.n. says it will work with the syrian government to ensure the safety

5:22 pm
the first widely considered the first genocide struck your own people. >> a specialist of domestic politics and the economy is with me in the studio. how september is turkey by the comments made by the pope. >> turkey is upset given that the pontiff has a worldwide recognition, the fact that he uses the word genocide to discuss events as a mass murder a plan by the otto man authorities to wipe out the armenian nation in turkey that caused a lot of upset in ankara. >> it happened in 1915 but is a serious issue in turkey and armenia, and people are divided. >> it is sensitive. turkey has shut the boarder, there's barely any diplomatic contacts between the countries,
5:23 pm
what makes the issue sensitive is it's the 100th year anniversary that the pope classified as a genocide. >> how much sway does the pope have in turkey. >> the pope doesn't have much sway in turkey but they understand his global moral authority, the that is correct that he speaks for a billion catholics, and his statements are widely disseminated. that's the reason why turkey was upset by the use of the pope of the word genocide. >> what else is turkey likely to do what could to do to protest. the summoning of the ambassador is it symbolic or will there be a fall out. >> turkey follows the same pattern, whether the parliament or the political leadership is used to classify events of 1915.
5:24 pm
it withdraws the ambassador for consultations. after a period of time they restore to the post. turkey can't afford a complete rupture of relations with the vatican, gun its importance around the world, and speaks for over a billion catholics. >> it's a sensitive issue, what is interesting is that around the world different countries have different views and policies about describing it or not describing it as a genocide. is that right? >> there's a number of countries recognising the event as a genocide, such as france and some have gone further, switzerland, which criminalize the - any person who denies the event of 1915. other countries, the u.k., the united states have not gone as far as to classify the event. some may say for reasons of

remote part of the area to meet the keepers of the mangroves. >> these days these people are making a good living from the sea. fish is plentiful, work is constant. it was not always that way. in previous years overfishing and the mismanagement of the mangroves spelt environmental and economic ruin. it was a future that 13 of the women refused to accept. the collective began to take things into their own hands. >> translation: we used to sell muscles, clams and shrimp. we benefitted from them and ran out. maybe because they were overexploited. we decided to make this to protect the mangroves. change did not come easily. these women faced challenges from the firer many and their own husbands. >> translation: one of the biggest problems that we had
5:45 pm
when we began to organise was the culture. it wasn't until we got results that the fishermen changed their minds. they asked for help. that involved getting the fishermen to give up their nets in favour of hand lines, a technique that helped fish stocks replenish. gabriel tells us this is a responsible fishing area where the mangroves are cherished as nurseries and fish allowed to reproduce. it's here that the women made the most progress. in the past years mangroves were cut for firewood or replaced with shrimp pools. that is no longer happening, through training and education. the women's collective changed a way of life and began to work on preserving this unique mangrove swamp, and are getting international attention for the work they have done here.
