1:03 pm
a voter in here right now a family who speaks english let me ask what does it mean for you to be here today well today's a crucial day for people the first time offender is that we have the advantage if you did spend most out have democratic way before you way past a nobody and that really means something. and thank you very much focused on your these are the ballot boxes that those spanish police are confiscating. this is the ballot you can see it's simply yes or no let me try to stay out of the way of democracy here but let me walk you down everybody is checked against the universal sensors normally when you vote that voting place only has the information for a limited number of people but the spanish government or the catalonian government knew that the spanish government was going to shut down a lot of these polling places and so what they did was they allowed people to vote
1:04 pm
at any polling place for their checked against the registry that's why they need the internet and we're told that seventy three percent of the polling places are open that's according to the catalonian government the spanish government says it's more like fifty percent let me walk down here. so we talk to international observers who say that what they're doing here. really meets the standards of international legitimate voting but don't don't take my word for we're going to talk to one right here this is karen klein thank you for joining us thank you she is an international observer the catalonian government has arranged. for international observers to be here she's from south korea lives in new york and let me ask you what you see here does this meet the standards for a legitimate election. i don't think people just exercise their right to go into a. seat and especially the spanish or the member of the euro can you that this is

1:06 pm
about the way they are conducting this election the way they check the ids the way they check each voter against the national census is it reliable this is this vote . yes i think so because you know if you think of that many of the sovereignty. right that goes to the people you know and you see the whole process they're doing it really seriously they track every number seven spanish id and they say i saw everything was. useless liable to democracy and you know this spanish the spanish to freely and be curious about that they don't they don't even see. yes that would not be possible so i think we're seeing the director not miss any chance to be involved and. thank you very much international observer that is what's going on here at this polling place which is just gone back into motion after the spanish government shut it down germany thanks jon heder the live elsewhere in the city as

1:08 pm
resupplying from an underground car park in a residential area. it looks right now that the police are starting to load back up get back in their trucks and if you look across the road there are civilians who have gathered people on the streets in general terms very towards the arrival of the spanish national police. you can hear that group there right now charging we will borrow a defiant tone to say that they still have the intention of keeping this referendum going you have to remember that some of these span. national police have come from many other areas. in total we're told around ten thousand additional police and paramilitary civil guard have come here with specific orders from the spanish government to crack down on the vote to stop this referendum happening. we've got pictures of what happened two hours ago just talk us through what you saw of what
1:09 pm
it is the police are actually doing when they when they show up to what to these polling stations. yeah absolutely the location of those pictures you're looking at now was the cat's. ministry which was also. polling. large groups of spanish police arrived. on some of them are carrying what appeared to be weapons. requests. by the education ministry they were met with a human for the on that human cord on then just simply sat down and the. police waited in and what dragging them away physically dragging them away from the front of the school people were still chanting we will there will have no pass out on
1:10 pm

1:16 pm
in the past china had a deal of houston not fully implementing the sanctions that had been passed against north korea and the u.n. security council and indeed these sanctions that have been unilaterally imposed by the united states but in recent months there has been a significant policy shift china has been implementing these sanctions as shown by the fact that it's instructed its banks to no longer do business with north korea it is restricting the import of oil into north korea so this is something very significant in terms of the u.s. stated policy of getting china to bring greater pressure to bear on north korea in an attempt to resolve this crisis but also what is happening as that it does not only pertain to north korea the relationship between the u.s. and china is growing stronger through this ongoing crisis in wider areas such as trade here with the news hour from al-jazeera still to come on the program hundreds

1:22 pm
a change in strategy by boko haram which suicide bombings and hostage taking being stepped up. security experts say this was to be expected after the group lost control of territory. because if you hold the ground it's ms you know the opposing force has something substantive to heat but when you. you know you you you you kind of dilutes all that advantage. advantage advantage in training retired group captain said as an end to the fight is not yet in sight we made. it was a very very long time because you could say this is dead that you can spend weeks with out here in that list and operation the notion of complete victory may very difficult i think but maybe have sufficient victory the military declined to speak about book or arms recent strategy and its own response when our military operation

1:32 pm
hung around the door and they drank a whole. i don't know why an ambulance. and now the spanish national riot police drawing from this area see if we can get a picture of these people coming up now and made it. we have seen at least one person taken away with injuries off the scalpels with police many people camping outside the education ministry in tears because they weren't able to vote and because of the way that the spanish national riot police came in this just to show you the level of police presence here we're just going through here and i'm going to show you the line. and this is this is a spanish national police drawing squad if you like because this is one of the squads with orders to go around the city of basra alone. coming to
1:33 pm
a polling station off the polling station to try and shut the referendum down as you can see they're now getting back into their vans. we do believe in a location that we were at earlier this morning the industrial college hundreds if not thousands of people were already lined up there we believe that at nine o'clock in the morning we know the ballot boxes were already there so we do believe in some of these voting stations voting is going ahead right now as these bands are starting to move away again civil disobedience catalans are trying not human cordons to try and stop these gangs moving off. they know the polling station well here's how we're cattle and succumb to this vote today after decades of course force a session from spain it twenty fifteen regional elections saw catalan nationalists win a razor thin majority two parties formed
1:34 pm
a coalition partly based on an agreement to ensure that a referendum would be held within two years the dred refused catalonians demands saying that such a vote was banned under the constitution and the spanish courts agreed as did many people in catalonia itself so the first being held in spite of staunch opposition from many sides the most recent polling from july this year suggest that forty one percent of people in catalonia favor independence or forty nine percent want to stay with spain it's kind of you know from on rick with the col who's a historian an expert on catalan affairs he's with us now live from barcelona good to have you with us. what are we to make of the catalans desire to to vote the passionate desire to vote today and this opposition from the police who are determined to stop the. how can i put it it's a case of double. in
1:35 pm
a. referendum is based on. revolutionary announcement by the cattle in parliament. in early september. they would no longer a base banish laws and in a referendum law was to be followed by an immediate declaration of independence there's under the spanish constitution is illegal on the other hand the conservative government never acted politically it only acted through the courts and gave no possibility for a solution and it is indeed trying to do that now. police helicopter over my head. that there's been a definite shift though hasn't there within capital and society from being mostly pro autonomy to to pro independence what's going on within catalan society. you're having are you can you hear me now now ok i'll tell you what we'll take
1:36 pm
a break for a couple minutes we'll come back to want to helicopters moved away because there's a lot other i want to ask you ask you ok stay with us. ok. sunday is unification day in cameroon it marks fifty six years since the english speaking part of the country voted to join the much lot of french speaking areas but it's not exactly been a happy union the english speaking minority feel discriminated against and the protests which the security forces have put down and now in the gulf but has closed the border with nigeria for fear of further unrest. reports. they have a national anthem their own flag and a leader in waiting all the trappings of a potential new country but without any land because what these people want to call amazonia is at the moment the english speaking part of cameroon it's you the
1:37 pm
demonstrators have gathered momentum in the last year by saying that people suffered discrimination at the hands of the french speaking government. most people just want reform but calls for outright independence are getting louder. and it's. giving freedom at the end of the first world war cameron was divided between the french and the british at its independence in one thousand nine hundred sixty one the english speaking opted to join the french cameroon instead of neighboring nigeria. these protests have been mainly peaceful but cameroon security forces have cracked down six protesters were shot dead last year and hundreds arrested an apparent gesture of reconciliation president ordered that the charges be dropped against several detainees but that doesn't seem to have calm the tensions the man who leads the separatists has been touring the us calling for a peaceful uprising we call for a nonviolent revolution we call for them violent protests we call for the
1:38 pm
environment much this is what young people straight into the well and we have resisted. i mean you know what but this is a moment that we must continue to stand for. the u.n. secretary general has asked cameron's government to address the grievances of the english speakers but the u.n. is unlikely to answer mr tavist prayers for a new country called embers only mohammed omar d.c. al jazeera right that police helicopter is still hovering overhead but we're going to try and speak to rick again rick is an historian an expert on cattle and nationalism i think i don't know whether you can hear me any better now but i was trying to ask you about what's been going on it's like having an i can hear you quite well what's been going on within catalan society and this move away from autonomy to rampant pro in the pendants if it's sick. this was a very marked historical shift four hundred thirty years there was
1:39 pm
a solid consistent long lasting thomas movement strongly nationalist but never. questioning the participation or forming part of spain there was from nineteen nineteen on a very small independent this movement very small which suddenly suddenly became a mass of opinion suddenly the tenets of that tradition became about separatist tradition became a mass phenomenon could fill the streets with what would seem visually at like a at least a couple of million people. what do you make of the way that the nationalists is sorry sorry what are you to make of of don't know much that the nationalist and the spanish government are playing this is either side getting it right. the nationalist government has gone forward with. an effective parliamentary
1:40 pm
majority but which does not represent in terms of voters solid majority and has just gone for broke in september they just jumped the legal basis and effectively proclaim themselves independent and then wanted to. see what was the american phrase run it up a flagpole and see who salutes hold a referendum make it independent right sorry. and. the so the nationalist government doesn't have anything to gain by being reasonable it's become pointedly unreason at the same time the spanish conservative government has not does not have any reasons to be reasonable either it just figures let it fade can squash the independent of then it will. and it will certainly succeed with its electoral base in central spain so it's
1:41 pm
a. win win win situation all right good to talk to you many thanks indeed for being with us some. fifty people have been arrested in a far right rally in the swedish city of gothenburg members of the nordic resistance movement fighting with counter-demonstrators the group promotes anti-semitic ideas said to have time to march to coincide with the jewish holiday of young people a police officer is among several people injured. a man who filmed the death of eric garner he was being arrested by new york police says that he is now the victim of retaliation ramsey is suing the city for millions of dollars for what he describes as his wrongful arrest as kristen salumi reports. if you could read if your cell phone video of eric garners death at the hands of police shocked the nation. and helped spark the black lives matter movement
1:42 pm
protesting police brutality. but for the young man who recorded the footage it was the beginning of a series of run ins with police that he says led him straight to jail. watch he spoke to al-jazeera by phone after the group you know which. i don't like spotlight on me basically anything you. have to know. and point attention to something that did not want us to pay attention to or to who is suing the n.y.p.d. for wrongful arrest is featured in a new documentary called cop watch the film focuses on a group whose mission is to record police officers to protect the rights of citizens not cost social rights don't want to it's members are responsible for recording other police controversies like the arrest of freddie gray in baltimore in the aftermath of michael brown shooting and ferguson this isn't like david and goliath this is like david buses an f.
1:43 pm
eighteen so essentially the police used every every possible thing in the palette to make sure that ramsey you know what went down the n.y.p.d. has yet to comment on the details of the lawsuit which is currently under review by the city but former police officers and their supporters all over the country are complaining that the prevalence of videotape is having a negative impact on policing well everybody has a video camera in their pocket now with a phone so this former detective believes officers have become much more reluctant to intervene put it in context about what's exactly happening here that officer is trying to focus in on a specific problem where this person may or may not be armed or dealing with it and now you have other people coming in from different sides of the stimuli this could be present a big problem for those of us. that's. right critics of cop watch say glosses over or to his criminal record but or to says regardless of his past the film and his lawsuit are an attempt to shine a light on police misconduct while. putting all of.
