2:07 pm
he went on to say that he regarded the independent test which is the pros secession movement as being over having finished off he said that this was the end for it and those who staged the coup he said have shown that they were wrong and they are now being replaced and the president has been replaced of course all of these measures happening in a whirlwind off through a slow motion sequence of events that led to all of this. sainz santamaria who is the deputy prime minister of spain as soon as the role of president of the region of catalonia or the nation of quetta loony as the government here would have it but the government here is nowhere to be seen right now we do know that on friday night as all those crowds were completely crammed into the square in front of the seat of government the government buildings

2:09 pm

2:10 pm
harvest rice from fatherland there's been abandoned by written differently who fled violence in northern iraq and state now the paddy fields cover more than seventy thousand acres in mound that's one of the areas worst affected in the crackdown by the mia mom military against the ranger florence louis has more from young gong. there are a couple of ways to look at this one is that this is simply a practical solution the rice crops are ripe for harvesting and if they were left to just stand in the fields they would go to waste so the myanmar government has put in place a plan to harvest the crops bringing in combine harvesters and laborers to do the work and agricultural ministry spokesman has told us that the local government is in charge of the harvest and the eventual fail and the proceeds of the sale will go to the local government although there are no details on how they plan to use it but the other issue is this raises ethical questions as the asia director of human
2:11 pm
rights watch puts it you really can't call a crop ownerless when you've used a campaign of arson and violence to drive the owners from their land and this is what the myanmar military has been accused of doing and the other issue pertains to future use is this harbors perhaps the first step of the myanmar government to appropriate the land from revenge or refugees who've been driven to bangladesh now if it is it will raise other questions what about repatriation and resettlement of the refugees now granted we are a long way from that bangladesh and you are not officials haven't yet worked out details of how they plan to repatriate range of refugees but they will have to be other questions that that need to be asked such as where will they return to and what will they return to if their farms and villages are no longer there. and we're also hearing that officials in bangladesh is cox's bazar of they're proposing
2:12 pm
a voluntary sterilization scheme for overcrowded refugee camps now they want central government to approve a plan to launch the said tim is full range of men and you bet to me is the women aid groups in the camp say they're working with limited resources and the lack of family planning can make things even worse that's speak now to phil robertson he's the deputy director for asia human rights watch he's joining us now from bangkok on skype what are your thoughts and about this proposal that we've had about the range of men and women be offered several ization well we think that providing education on birth control and family planning and of course sterilization is one of the options there is fine but these programs are to be strictly voluntary there cannot be any sort of intimidation or compulsion that there be any any real pressure from the bank of the government use such services and is there any indication is there any indication phil that there would be any compulsion as part
2:13 pm
of this program well they're all saying it's voluntary right now as we learn more walls. these these things tend to take a lot of their own i mean you know our concern is that some point down the line local officials program staff of these programs may receive orders that you know they want to compel compliance the right to get people but do you think it's a reason what will happen do you think it's a reasonable request from the outset that the range of population is limited if you like. well i think i mean i don't think that is a reasonable proposition the proposition is family planning as a service with all its variations and all its methods should be provided to record the use to use or not use as they like you know when you start talking about limiting population through births you're on a very slippery slope and absolutely absolutely. many of many governments you know who are hosting large groups of refugees try to do this you know it should not be
2:14 pm
permitted culturally how does contraception and family planning sit with the nation. well i mean i think we have to understand the circumstances of the road and if you pull in the camps understand that i mean many of these people are poor they're coming from very rural areas where they have limited ability to move around because of restrictions on their movements by the government they don't have access to health services much less money to buy those services you know so it's it's not something that has really ever come up you know when you don't have access to services you don't think about them unless it's something that's life threatening and in these cases family planning was not seen as life threatening it was seen as something that just was not in their scope of understanding on a regular basis now it isn't front of them and they've got to make some decisions but you know i mean this is a very conservative culture. it's very patriarchal women's voices tend to be
2:15 pm
marginalized so i think it's going to be you know interesting situation i mean how does this play out and you know the women for instance going to assert that you know look i don't want to have any more children and will they be able to a purse where their husbands to allow that go through you know we don't know yeah these are these are really difficult issues out there. just to clarify then as far as you know consent it would have to be if this indeed to be religious. in the camps and. this is have to be monitored very very strictly in very cast indeed oh yes oh yes i mean i think the u.n. f.p.a. and the international n.g.o.s would be watching this very very closely and it shouldn't just be sterilization there could be other methods of family planning that are on offer as well i mean let's let's let's provide the full gamut of services ensure their voluntary and ensure that they're monitored very closely to
2:16 pm
make sure there are no abuses ok phil robertson always good to which he thank you you thank. lots more to come here at al-jazeera including the u.s. defense secretary he warns north korea that any use of nuclear weapons will bring an overwhelming response. and problems more problems for those in the libyan capital tripoli this time because a severe water shortages. hello there well first of all let's have a look at our typhoon then it's gradually working its way towards the north and as it does so it's throwing plenty of cloud ahead of it so for many of us in q two and across honshu we're already seeing some gray weather and some wet weather as well that system is running its way northward fairly slowly so we're expecting it to
2:17 pm
start affecting tokyo there as we head through around twelve g.m.t. on sunday that's when we're expecting the center of the storm to work its way towards the city as we head through into sunday though for japanese time around lunchtime the storm will be here just around key issue and then gradually over the next few hours that we work its way towards the northeast as it does so though it will be weakening so the winds won't be too much of a feature by the time it reaches tokyo instead the main problem with the system is going to be with the amount of rain it could easily give us a problem with flooding eventually though as we head through monday that system will pull away towards the northeast in behind it will be a lot quieter so tokyo will get to around seventeen degrees and it should be fine down to was the southeast plenty of fine weather also here for the southeastern parts of china for shanghai will get to around ninety around twenty eight in hong kong i think around the policy of taiwan though there will be more clouds and a few outbreaks of rain.
2:18 pm
in the most heavily drugged country in the world if there's any country that would be experiencing p.t.s.d. it would be a nation that's been out war for four generations al-jazeera explores the reason those drones are there is to assist the innocent civilians they exist and offer a growing haven they're not filing is them frightening because any moment they can bomb living beneath the drones this time of al-jazeera. all right these are our main stories here at al-jazeera spain's deputy prime
