madrid came swiftly and this course not kato your present day and age that the speech that the catalan president has made today is a speech by a person who doesn't know where he is where he's going or with whom he wants to go the government cannot accept that the catalan referendum be validated because it's been suspended by the constitutional court. having consistently refused to talk one centrist politician suggested the time may have come for the government to compromise i think the better way they can solve the problem is with that negotiation some kind as i said of mediation a disappointment perhaps to some staunch secessionists tonight would be there and i but sweet relief to many who fear the consequences of an upright declaration of independence after threats from madrid and the flight of top companies from catalonia since the referendum on october the first. place that you don't regret

a four year old daughter. i grew up in sweden but america and bauer's and. it was while making a web documentary fall about female genital mutilation that i realize how deeply rooted it is in many cultures including my own. i have family and friends who have been through it but it's not something you talk about. as a child i attended the close relatives gathering after she was caught. it was then that i wondered have i been copped. to my relief my mother told me that she chose not to. when i think about the severe health risks involved in f. g. m. i can't help but wonder. why does this practice continue in so many countries.
and what would it take for to start with. and how do some manage to change our own health attitudes towards cutting while still preserving their own culture. you know and then there are more personal questions like whether my mother has been cut. i've never asked or. i'm determined to find out more about the different transcends why f.p.m. continues and to understand better what's needed to and the. the. i've come to somaliland because together with the rest of somalia it has the highest rate of female genital mutilation in the world.
is banned in most countries but here it's still legal. in somaliland children mostly caught between the ages of six and eight. after come to the afghans of a geisha the capital to meet a traditional cutter. known as being cutting girls for over forty years around twenty five a day attack peak. how many girls have you got. and what type of cuts have you performed on the girls and i couldn't father why and tie in a. little yeah. yeah and this italy would knew. about the time i. said that
would you for. now q so why entire this week so i thought i'd see him and i will also tell. me the most common cotton somaliland the chorus the most severe foreign ikhwan. what do you use this for cole how does that rock and. so you put it in the classroom. because. you don't use the knife to my. house so i am. telling you how the war on his i don't know what i want to. just write. so i can so i can so and i can you show me how do you determine. how big the whole should be that you leave
. this is how big the opening is only this but well good luck with us and you're supposed to urinate from this when you're a teenager mr asian go through this whole. over ninety percent of girls in somaliland are cut by traditional culture. unlike most have no medical training. most girls and women here have had the for rooney and i want to know the consequences. and i bet the senior midwife at the local hospital. you have a very beautiful thank you very much she was born in somalia but moved to sweden as a result of the civil war. and i tonight and i am i decided to come back
to move something for myself people because i most needed here how have you been involved in the fight against their. cases which will help those who have fibro fibro decide to let. which is which forms the collective blood. the blood if the space is very small the minister should come out or if the mantle in the ghetto gets them in a station there will be something left in the uterus this will form. this becomes bigger people who see this she has. a baby in her stomach so the doctor takes out this and the girl will be ok. i have help from the megan maternity hospital in arkansas. and. i want to live it was priceless we're going to see her stand. two days
a week of counselors coming out educational outreach work in the community. or from the. only way you get. on line and i like. my holiday. there how how do you know you. really are hearing. what i'm going to say. so doing that how do i. do want to discover how stories with the counselors. she's eighteen and pregnant
so why do you think somaliland have the highest percentage when it comes to f e m globally it takes time to leave the culture grandmother does and mother is they still hold on with the suturing and if g.m. is special the grandmothers are very very close or they are there they will look leave it there was a lady who had three girls she came to me at the hospital i told her go back to the home and see i did the operation she is very killer for describing mother when the guests are going to authorities she goes after them she listen is the most of their . oh because when that girl is circumcised they smallness with their with how do you want it because it is like a drug is going to be all she cried she said all my daughter the good saddle that you need to like
a boy's what you did you did nothing do you think that eventually people will abandon this eventually but to do is take time. as i watch these young people at a wedding reception i wonder how many of the men would be willing to marry an uncut woman in the future. for saying a local journalist posted an afghan message on social media i was curious to know why i did facebook where you said some men believe after g.m. deduces a woman's sexual desire they say this increases her appeal what made you write this
i want to talk because it's a problem for us. to say against the down human. of the goddess a human in our midwest where and you will get my do you want to my family of copper uncut uncut ok are you married know you want to be someone who is cut down on top. who you really. should target some of. the other kind of. my heart in live and grow your own little hospital and. it's all that i in a lot of time which are two. i am a woman. i come from a culture that also practices that i'm not cut. i you know other woman based on what other women have told me that if there is no there is no good in it
if they tell you this is hurting us this is literally killing us and we needed to stop would you then listen. to the camilla. and. the dog whistle. i'm surprised that a young man should feel so strongly about holding on to this tradition when so harmful if ever g.m. is to end changing men's attitudes will be essential. to have not done university hospital collects detailed information on trends in female cutting. medicare to two thousand and two all antenatal patients are asked what kind of cuts have had and if
they intend to cut their daughters. you know. this is rare. in two thousand and two ninety seven percent of female patient had undergone the pharaonic out and most intended the same for their daughters. but that has changed. went into type. one they calls. it a brisk cut. one is the one that there's a little tip but tied to a dick at a hospital a tryst reno or cuts doesn't have any benefits. i just. talk to my. doctor introduces me to
a friend who's at the hospital on a postnatal little. birth order days ago so there are interesting because of the circles and stuff. of the midwife and know the harmful effects of phony cutting from passing experience. something else all. the time. so if you. want to your innate i can't. i'm crying. my for the tear secondly you are a coward while you talk. the festival over my feeling that when i'm sixteen years. the minister should secondly. i feel. bad you don't get to see this problem this is. the sum cycle communication i feel when i see linda took on the question with
a merry go round. to go for the cut and never fuck that to me. fred if it. did you feel any resentment towards your mother and your grandmother yeah but to the mother ship question. as i'm leaving somalia i feel privileged to have met a woman who share the stories with me. but i'm overcome with emotion as i realize virtually every woman here has been caught. and what it actually means. i've always known about the numbers and the facts and the figures but when you come face to face to all women who've gone through it it seems like the woman who after endorses and the children were after indoors as you go through cycles of pain.
for what. has happened to so many women and girls like my mom. i'm so happy that. i don't know why should they didn't come. but i'm so grateful. because my life would have been so much different because to feel good. over the go through the pain. to go through the other not to be able to do something that it's a it's a god given thing to peek. you can't pee. and then your premise to ration and then when you have to have sex you don't enjoy it and it's like painful . and then you have to give birth and then it just continues. i'm so grateful that. i didn't go through that and when i meet. those
women who have to go through it. i've come to kenya to find out more about a totally different culture. of a forty tribes here with diverse cultures and traditions. the majority don't practice. but several including the masai cutting has been a centuries old tradition until recently. today meeting twenty eight year old nice and getting. myself managed to talk to me rather
kate f.e.m. and have village of my young not. traditionally for the messiah cutting is a rite of passage marking the transition from girlhood to womanhood usually between the ages of mine and fourteen. the ritual involves some most of us. we lost i feel god through his release because of what i used to see gas even if they're trying to be strong but you can see that deafening a lot of us are bleeding he was so. nice with the only gun in her village who refused to be cut. off my classmates who are from this community all of them up under. and they didn't they were not able to go or. they have to find a husband for you. so right now almost all of them have three four five children
and a. jumble. what's your name my name is all one of your phone i have a b. in the second thought. you know they have been fact i'm saved how do you feel about not being caught. so what would you like to do when you grow up. ok thank you and. as a result of nice's determination to end f.e.m. no young girl has been cut here since two thousand and twelve. the messiah and a patriarchal society. and i first had to persuade the young warriors calderon's to help and the practice. recruiting douglas the leader of them runs was a beginning. what did you do nice to make them trained opinion about the
glass was their first doesn't work cept my walk so resistance was there from all over but then again i had another trick because when i go to them i'll go with someone like that last so i'll make sure that he talks before i talk so what did you do to persuade them around in the community. it was very hard for us to continue the boys because they say that they can not. because even god is not sometimes they'd she's not a woman then if we need an example of some of the dead that we have seen in the community they said ok it's true and let's forget it i think it took more than five years what them just to accept and now we decided to come up with some time until we came up and i prayed i said if the pentagon from this community and we want them to upgrade to become a woman we bless them then we look at the same cows that we celebrate hold together
but we didn't cut so that's what we've come up with. douglas bring some of his friends or morons to meet me. yeah we mix of moderate to more than ok and i might add more and do you know what actually happens when i go is cut you know get along. and i'm very sorry and i would literally move it you know when you know you're not in any when are you going to. i don't know and i'm like yeah. i don't know. that i haven't gone down and i will you know when you you know we want to. you know. around our graphic video over to you know go with a knife. you
know what i did that. we were. going to just think how do you. want to live and when they're going to do you have a daughter. how would you feel if someone said she needed to be cut and that we were going. well i think it was one of the powerful tools we've been using when we had the issues of female genital mutilation and there was another very persuasive incentive for the young warriors. when we see if there's a more as we talk and talk about sex you see most of the. most of the men they see if they sleep with a gun is very sweet insects now that's what also contains most of them what i have to say we don't need.
meeting the messiah in a minute gives me hope. if one woman can change attitudes in one village perhaps it's time it's possible to change entire countries. in the heart of the amazon the libyan family has put their lives in peril to harvest brazil nuts. which getting the congo to the capital is an even more dangerous challenge. risking it to the libya. at this time on al-jazeera.

iran backed lebanese group is fighting alongside president assad's forces and syria it's important to recall that hezbollah hasn't developed its military and terrorist capabilities on its own it has become the global threat it is today for one reason tehran's deep and abiding assistance the iranian regime has built and bankrolled has a lot of film of instability throughout the region and across the world. this is all caused at the expense of the iranian people whose resources are being diverted to support hezbollah's bloody cause and at the expense of lebanon which is tougher grievously from iran and hezbollah's deadly partnership at least fifteen people are dead in the u.s. state of california as wildfires continue to spread for a third day now these are pictures live pictures from sonoma county the wildfires have scorched the state's famous wine country and forced more than twenty thousand people from their homes the governor us declared

escape let up in news i witnessed. they cut that kids are not allowed to witness as a young girl is an eleven year so and and this community and dennis before me into a state just this. which is a slate cut. yeah that's done in public with the presence of men and women and young girls and he young boys and this year yes we see it but they just you know it's got just immediately after the first day that women are taken too and they got taken to a secluded place like a bush so we sneaked in and what i just saw on the second stage was so shocking my cousin was laying down there in a pool no blood yes and women were pinning her down in her demitra completely you know there's one of us who really butchering like you know how do you cut pieces of meat. i was expecting it's not to do this just that yeah but she was doing this you
know yes with a knife yes and she was screaming but us claims were being covered by the women singing and you know the trying to talk to cover her screams as she was helpless what was left to their horse just like red flesh yes i still can't believe that this is something that we're still debating about. honestly. it was this traumatic experience that made don't refuse to become a motivated how to set up proper charity to help and of jail. who are heading to the village of sandwich with one hundred sixty girls are preparing for an attorney to right of passage ceremony. we just saw me to be there because intelligible to us and to know that they get into. the trip to sandwich from the tool of house takes two and a half hours through mountain passes on bumpy roads. with the school
and the full school. for the welcome when we get makes it worse or. in the pocket culture cutting traditionally involves a celebration in which the whole community takes part. the girls are having their dances for the alternatives harmony. is real life come in and it was beautiful i don't expect to see this pot committed and seeing and hearing we want people to know that we love our culture we know we love every bit of it only but from the cut yes business we're going to feel. nothing for and here. the teachers are from the same community. the girls receive
food days of lessons before their graduation day. today they're learning exactly what have jam involved in the health complications using modern. about the madonna none of. their would. want to become us did. you know. when you have been caught you're put into seclusion for one month where by your thought how to become a good ways how to treat your husband how to cook so we do the opposite to we bring the girls in here we teach them that. their children's rights work you know we did them about health implications of them so it's basically same same thing
without the car to but a different teaching because you want these girls to be important people in the society other than that. don't tell him her colleagues have had to work hard to change the attitudes of parents. in the pocket community a cut girls can bring significant economic advantages to a poor family. a girl is married off a man brings dowry into in couse and i'll tell you that's it for this community the right price is quite high especially if the girl is young and cut most people tend to my idea that after all the men when they bring good number of calls as much as many of the tickles because of poverty situation they're tending to their girls when they're still young and then they married them when they get there is quick quick quick quick quick well so much an uncut girl worse but on cuts a girl you can actually be given away at her for
a price. years for they might even give you away for free because they just want to get rid of you because you're a body and you know. that tomorrow's graduation the girls will sing and dance to some composed by a local musician lucky to. have a personal reason for wanting to have. a swat team you think is done. because. no one helped my me. but i want to know he will gnaw. at the guy. he said give. me. what your sister clementine are planning to. live in or.
going to a government and more local moran. around here have been effective. around this village and around. most of them. being cut i mean to be able to reach out to everybody this is a big big big land you know it's a big county. i find out from them to know that one of her younger sisters run away
i'm not going to buy you know i'm going to go really i'm going to it's not for me so she wrote her thing in the forest. so you are against it because of the law but in your time if there was a good. one last year well i hear what they. want to know the meaning of the william on. the wall do you know. what i'm gonna think why were you me. got a commercial. meeting them till of crime
other makes me appreciate why the key to ending f. jamming with is keeping girls in school. that way bands don't have to rely on a diary to help support their elders educated girls can pay for their own cows. today the time to right of passage is being held in the market square. hundreds of people from many different religious have come to with misallocation.
that was. a find out that some of the girls have made great sacrifices to be here today. and there are many of your friends here dozens of you today. it's just you here no one else from the village. so that means they would become. like. are you here today. they're not here. for any here just along with. let's go and join.
with another go who catches my eye the minute someone. even last impression on me. the presence of dignitaries here is a testament to them to the success it means i'll turn to have this type of approval of important. the vast majority of people are christian and the graduation ceremony and with the blessing. patterns and elders stand behind the girls that belong to their villages . yeah. you're there was wonderful and touching to see all the community leaders and the
pattern especially the father standing behind the young girls symbolically it was like saying we have your back we have your back with the boat you and was a forty decision not to be caught it was wonderful to see. just wonderful. i wanted to meet. elissa go unnoticed dancing of the family she ran away from him after her father began beating her mother believing she was a responsible for the futile to be cut. you know get. what you need. to. let on you.

your real bar alexandre streak at the heart may really you want your dick that is say it or. face into body all three criteria thread of incident of it for full truth at the heart of it's about to be i'm a little harder with afrikaans probably i'm her last mc yeah. she has to order and mom for mere o'meara india and pakistan kurdistan iraq latin america and between america because i was given the guardian when he would put up a normally taboo subject. you know being in the congo are the kind of out of multiple good. on school no we didn't that we hadn't uplifted over to my la concha through the heart of the man. had over three months and all those men. in their car young far out. there.

heart into. the threat itself. although i've always known i'm not because i never asked my mother why i left him is not a subject to discuss but today we're going to talk about it. it took a lot of convincing to persuade my mother to take part in this film. my father and sister refused due to the taboo that's the subject. there's a personal question i need to ask my mother that makes me uncomfortable. so i start with the easy one. little bottle. nose and wish. which my goodness there had been i would add. yarn in the kind of rule watching dr love and that's a deal where. the tradition is in control who identified that with a gun and most of all i'd like the last thought of. fishing like
a nast but i would rather like an individual to start by a man must have a market than a market that i'm in and around the. i'm sure what i would what i'm the guy that's to get it but i have now got. a lot of air travel from what i had to have the only car not going to the lot and i have my kind of going to when i'm in a home like i thought it what does an open mind about toxic. close and hunger look for a lot of stuff to get the launch of the shop off. the sack in what ever were. so i don't but the fact that i would be a lot harder on and it had him all bent out harder for us out of the fact that i will not meet with him if. the only only risky enough.

did not endure it and in time when my daughter took. this journey cements might be as g.m. will and one day change will come but it must come from hers and. from those who understand that the richness and uniqueness of culture does not depend on traditions harmful to women. a family business handed down from generation to generation but when this funeral director retire as will his son continue the tradition i don't think he was actually before just like i don't feel like i was actually built for a difficult choice for an al-jazeera producer caught between two worlds well it's really fight tending to the dead to the living get better an intimate portrait of
