and we evacuated one thousand or two thousand of them to be so developed of little as feared government forces try to enter eastern water from three sides attempting to seize as much land as possible before the cease fire is implemented reinforcements from the syrian army's fourth and tenth brigades have been circling eastern for days special forces and troops from the elite tiger battalion are also on the front lines. bulldozers and tanks are deployed to breach rebel defenses iran and syria maintain that the security council resolution allows the targeting of what they call terrorists forward despite facing large approval numbers and heavy firepower levels and they have held their front line so far killing and capturing some soldiers. going to happen that we welcome the security council's decision regarding a ceasefire because of the burden on our families and he said this suffering must

11:05 pm
ivanka trump the closing ceremony to stay with a circle of poison is nuts. the environment doesn't know any boundaries you know dust and pollution from china settles in the us you know nuclear radiation from chernobyl went over iceland. what goes up into the environment goes around the world and ultimately this then layer of topsoil. maybe six inches of soil around this hard planet spinning in space represents the dust of our ancestors all of human history and all the other
11:06 pm
creatures are in that soil and to contaminate that and the water supply in the air is an unforgivable sin it's something that will pay for as a species. in generations to come this senate agriculture committee is considering a bill that would ban the export of dangerous pesticides farm workers from abroad told lawmakers yesterday of devastating health problems from exposure to chemicals made by american companies close to reagan former morio zimbardo used to grow bananas for export to america until he believes the pesticides he sprayed on the plants made him an eight hundred other workers and. he told a senate committee there were times when he virtually bathed in a chemical that u.s. companies and officials knew could render him in if a chemical is banned or unlicensed as too dangerous to use in america should it be morally wrong to export it somewhere else aside from morality many experts believe americans are eating these pesticides can produce grown over see the so-called
11:07 pm
circle of poison. well you know the circle of poison really started for me years before when i was in the peace corps in afghanistan and my wife and i were in this little remote northern town called tahlequah on has absolutely nothing to do there and. we were bored and one day we picked up some food from the american embassy when we were in kabul and she was reading the ingredients on the kool-aid packet that she'd gotten which shows there was a lot of greed in telecom and she said holy cow there's cycle mates in the us i said wait they're banned about the us government how could a banned substance end up in a poor country like afghanistan and so that started the investigation where i started to realize that systematically anything that was banned or heavily regulated or restricted there on registered in the us was being allowed by the us
11:08 pm
government and in fact encouraged to be sent overseas almost as compensation for the companies from losing the us market. that's to say except pushed on the grounds that it's a very modern way to do. i remember. is a go reading a book that india is on to develop because it doesn't use pesticides and we've made poisons the measure of progress and catalytic this it's called god some countries it is so beautiful. it has some of the best health indicators in the world hundred percent literacy and you go and.
11:09 pm
you know so. she actually got us into one of. the issue of perception categories that we do uniquely is the first response in the first impact of a percent is on animals. we have the disappearing of the dogs doing the chickens dying snakes dying in the in the in the planet's media. initially the people who are really happy because the snakes are dying the cause of dying so the nobody will know your color will come and catch you if you can so you're happy you can walk in the plantation freely because all the snakes are gone but in a year's time they found that the chicken is also visibly. to your spine bank they
11:10 pm
found that they can no longer keep dogs because the dogs again. suddenly you have the impacts of this of your own human beings and when the impact became physically human beings like. the what we call the brain in the man. people born with old limbs seven cases people born with their you and then there are things outside the body you named the human disorder which can happen to a body you see in castle and. then be actually bend down and then start to understand the issue of. this is that anderson. the local community and generally they were mounted. in fact it's a place that can. get elected there is no source of other source of pollution in that area. so we were also not very discuss debate. when you started collecting the information they said only that now these things can happen
11:11 pm
. probably the signs and symptoms were. really early ninety's like ninety one ninety two ninety three that's going to be here by someone it was a. child born with something but we see a lot of new ones born with you know docs who can fix the child is not exposed but the patterns are exposed and the former that is happening today. in the cashew plantations of india dr and his mobile medical team visit survivors of one of the worst pesticide disasters in the world. the. transition here or. here also is sort of spread by the.
11:12 pm
he didn't move. and i look i've you know saturday. a little online i didn't come to an. annual. registration i mean i. never really they would. then go on. after but the fans noticed that. not having on the little man might make storms like an ending all and some in some activities. solo they've done some dough and they've missed us he's having sort of us. all does.
11:13 pm
that are they going to get it. but. then. the. best. we can do that we. as often i'll be up late doesn't landed in this to be a peep show it could be added to possibly have an addition we have already here do we have addition. pretty good oops oh frequency of beat me this may be a city but a nice but we've been up in that i knew once with having to sing let it get him to fix it in the end did you know we just wanted to have morning doesn't make a nomination.
11:14 pm
and you know. what. i'm after the. main thing i don't want to. live in that i'm going out and. she doesn't absolutely norman said before they expose the fantasy. hold which you know she's been in. this unit and she. is the most liberal. she was a six six years she was studying the second standard and she was running behind and it's something it's just that she was twenty she was standing behind the
11:15 pm
illegal. if she has been dismissed before me dismissed problems in the table she was not i would. shows that she was not meant that that then she was absolutely normal she was able to handle difficult. then after spain see this collapse and became very a. very . so that's the only governor let me cover ok and. a good question ok we're going to see.
11:16 pm
this is the some of this. this name is obsessed he's often for those of us. so sort of a national this head of a for this will be as i'm going to all of a spectacle. of some fun looking into. you perceive the u.s. government as one image is for the corporate starting to be demanding to do in the u.s. abandons to distill the used to the next will be to africa asia even after fifty years they're doing the same the it is very unfortunate.
11:17 pm
forgat dropped from brain leader of the brain or in gas bombs but the enemy rated you with gas against your community there is no report there are fanning. the for world war two there wasn't widespread use of pesticides there was reliance on some of the drug but during and after world war two when companies began to develop these chemistries for war they were looking for new markets for the same chemicals and so turned to food in agriculture after war and things like organophosphates which. where nerve poisons went and pushed into agriculture many of them are still used mites might spread and.
11:18 pm
without war we would have passed the sides that's maybe that's an irony maybe maybe not but one way or another way this is what we ended up with the early seventy's it was clear we had problems health problems and environmental problems we've never experienced before thanks to pesticides that's when the u.s. government in the act of fear from one provision of which allowed the continual production and manufacturing of pesticides that were not permitted for use here to be exported overseas that set up the whole regulatory loophole that created this allowed the circle poison to come true. limited data from the e.p.a. in twenty thirteen revealed that banned restricted an unregistered pesticides a manufactured in twenty three states to export only the e.p.a. doesn't track the volume or final destination of these pesticides which are then applied to crops like coffee tea cotton fruit and vegetables and may indeed be
11:19 pm
imported back to the u.s. as pesticide residues on these foods the f.d.a. only inspects two percent of imported produce so the true risk to the u.s. consumer is unknown. there's a contradiction here because i think when you look at nuclear technology we're very careful in how we export that technology but you know i think one of the major concerns we've got to admit is that where we worry that an abuse of that technology or misuse of that technology will come back to her the united states in some way or another we need to have that same attitude with pesticides. you know when i step back and really think about the scope of what we've done it's been a giant terrible tragic experiment it goes way beyond past decides to especially as lead paint to flame retardants to all kinds of products drugs pharmaceuticals that
11:20 pm
were not properly studied and cleared for safety before we turned them into products all those products and all that export and all the damage that's been done for decades the first politician that really took notice of this was president jimmy carter. when i was very regular leave office i had exhausted by effort to get congress to pass it but we had all the material to show that we were doing something it was basically unscrupulous or illegal or as international law goes but the manufacturers of these dangerous materials and items. that they obstruct what i did so only i could do with issued executive order as a last resort and it precluded the distribution of sale of any material basically overseas that we couldn't safely present to consumers in america i wanted the brand made in america to me to mean something.
11:21 pm
this is a left office they defended old well president reagan while reagan and he agreed. to protect their right to continue selling. pesticides and clothing and on proved or disproved drugs. to people overseas to sort of manufacture to get rid of it and not to have a big loss. for the thirty years after i left the white house the issue is still unresolved and i would say that at this point the power and influence of all unscrupulous companies and their lobbyist. is even more paul. that it was when i was in the white house.
11:22 pm
when we speak of the circle poison we most often think of the danger to american consumers we think of foreign grown food senator leahy was the first elected official off to president carter order who tried to stop the second poison by introducing three bills in one thousand nine hundred. twelve when i first suggested we have a lot of pushback. by lobbyists in the senate we had the people in the senate who realized that it was important to stop to circle poison and we passed. a once it got to the house representatives want israel to work a lot harder. and they were able to stop it from being in the final bill we tried mightily we worked on saturdays and weekends everything else. on the bill but could not get that part through. there are very powerful interests to make
11:23 pm
a lot of money i saw it as a no are contaminated and the fact that we might be able to make money and create a few jobs here and poison people in other countries where there's a bet as best us or lead paint or something we shouldn't do that. it's rumor you senator. you're the lead op that allows all your members to be able to say either they probably agree with you or i got what you talking about that's correct. thank you mr chairman senator lugar i would like to. welcome the other six exact senior executives of n.a.c. a member company to join me on this panel today. one of senator leahy's main opponents to the bill was chave room mr of room has represented the pesticide industry in washington for nearly three decades vance written state an argument in one thousand nine hundred with senator leahy and others as it is today is that. we
11:24 pm
would rather that the united states be a principal source providing proper texan tools for farmers around the world and the incubator if you will for innovation for that kind of product development and the follow on stewardship that companies like those that are based here in the united states can and do provide over the years rather than having those needs served by product producers pesticide compounds from places that other than the united states. you think you'd find everything sacred you figure to find a whole lot more borrowing. perhaps a little about i will tell you when the agency undertook its investigation last year we did find a number of violations. and filed a number of cases against companies it was the first time that we had really enforce jay vroom also had on lies within the government linda fisher of the e.p.a.
11:25 pm
also oppose the second poison bell so take the case to linda fisher she was an e.p.a. official who argued against a circle of poison pill during the first bush administration after that she went to work for months on to actually as a lobbyist after that she went back into government back as a high official of the e.p.a. in the second bush administration and since then she's become a high official at department is a perfect example of how the revolving door of officials moving in the out of government regulating pesticides and other toxics and then going to work for the people that produce. so the big six are the six agra temple companies that control upwards of seventy five percent of the global house and trade and the big six by name are monsanto. they're syngenta dupont and b.s.s. and those six global corporations really controlled in terms of food farming.
11:26 pm
do i must not ask bookie that's a good beginning of the me you know business to feel good in old bulls i guess i'm a usa i'm calm yeah you see those have nothing to back up the market for you. about that they're not motivated right but i yeah. if i'm out i guess we'll knuckle many of them we fall but it gets a lot of offensive even more than that our how did he come from. sunny in south moonshot just emphasize on not that i had an example but get out but to me that can leave out the more they lack what i swore to see put them up in medical movies but i doubt that i was out the out the.
11:27 pm
you know my family farmer broke through the state. he was for nine june funny he says to now. where the real who uses the. good is good up in the beautiful her your own baby opening this i'm a metaphor for your cover well not revokable i'm the i'm but his mom worked her whole life in the fields and so before the pregnancy she was working in the fields and for the first few months. in manteo the travel he had. to see a bill she said but. so he's been diagnosed with cirrhosis of children. with a man example the more difficult the travel the list for the family about the need of the interview than. the secret that is a result of the easter get out when he was born
11:28 pm
a little bit swollen but it's gotten much awareness and you're going to see a good operation and mainly to look at his liver and in june they said that he just has about three years to live and that there is nothing they could do anything you know he's. already. in it really is something that of course deeply affects me as a human mind all of us you know that especially as a nurse that i feel you know a deep need to stop. and you know i'm stop this is not that it's having on on children you know i'm not. all. violence and discrimination are all too familiar to many women in india a reality too often reinforced by bollywood. but its leading star is throwing his
11:29 pm
weight behind the cause. they're going to start their journey and using his celebrity to advocate for gender equality. the snake charmers ahmed khan witness at this time. and monday put it on the. us and british companies have announced the biggest discovery of natural gas in west africa but what to do with these untapped natural resources is already a source of heated debate nothing much has changed they still spend most of their days looking forward to for the dry riverbed like this one five years on the syrians still feel battered or even those who managed to escape their countries have been truly unable to escape the war. too often on the streets of india. are victims but a new force is at play. female police officers are combat
11:30 pm
sexual assault and domestic abuse. but changing society is a challenge and so is life behind the badge for india. at this time. the stop the top stories current here on al-jazeera at least twenty seven people have been killed in syria russian air strikes in rebel held eastern huta there also been reports of attacks involving chlorine gas and napalm on two villages syrian government troops launched a new ground and a refence of just hours after the u.n. security council adopted a resolution demanding
11:31 pm
a cease fire in the region near damascus has been under assault for weeks these five hundred people have been killed there over the past seven days al-jazeera as mohammad al jazeera is in eastern on the edge of. the list of the regime forces have launched many attacks here today this is one of the front lines they were trying to advance towards duma and control the land and farms leading towards the vehicle department and harassed. their goal here is to separate harassed from east and there have also been various attacks from the east and the south of regime forces are trying to divide goods into smaller besieged enclaves. some sources within the opposition say iranian jets have also been taking part in the attacks. security forces in the democratic republic of congo shot dead a man to give them a protest in the capital kinshasa two other protesters were also injured churchgoers had planned to take part in marches against the president joseph kabila
11:32 pm
following sunday service this idea is government says one hundred ten girls remain unaccounted for after an attack by the armed group boko haram in the country's northeast government overran the school in the town of monday jarius information minister says additional police and security officers deployed to schools well the air force has also been called in to help search for the girls. christian leaders in east jerusalem have ordered the closure of the church of the holy support for christians believe jesus was crucified and they say it's in protest at new israeli attacks on the lamb policies which they're calling an unprecedented attack on christians in the holy land. as the winter olympics and the china an envoy from north korea says this country's ready to hold talks with the u.s. about its nuclear program general kim jong churro said just me to sew away from ivanka trump the u.s. president at the closing ceremony. say with
11:33 pm
a circle poison continues and we'll be back at the top of the hour with a full hour of news will see them but by. when i step back and really think about the scope of what we have done it's been a giant terrible tragic experiment. pushed on drums that it's a very modern way to do farming and we've made poisons the measure of progress. yet even a half of him. saying you want to come in. and learning your model of the. little one and know about a hierarchy and democrats want to go here in the. they are easy enough get man who me on my monkey that was on a few simple big fee only not only that can be done to harm the amount your family
11:34 pm
voted in this way that i mean that will. be done daughter if even then it's not being bought you get a lot and in and get out of a hat on a political map. probably the most dramatic way to understand the difference between domestic regulation and the lack of regulation once you cross the border as the fox pesticide use and people is just south of the border in mexico take the sonora desert split down the middle by an arbitrary border between countries so one side pesticides that can't be used are being used on the other side they are used and there is evidence of the effects. in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight doctors allowed conducted a study of pesticide exposure in mexico she compared the children living in the pesticide intensive yaki valley to those in the non-exposed patel's. after playing
11:35 pm
catch with the children and observing them dropping raisins into a bottle cap found disturbing differences in hand eye coordination between the groups of children she. looked at four and five year olds and five and six year olds and one of the things she asked them to do is draw a picture of a person and found the children in the non exposed areas people just like i think any kids anywhere you could tell they were people drawn by very young children many of the children in the highly exposed areas to pesticides just to scramble you couldn't even tell that they were people. in dimple you can use liquid state with on this i guess if you're not being under
11:36 pm
salute seen that he. will learn something in the post canal is he using our d. in. the woman was on my list looking for men i was to go see the first one as usually you mean that you will be only one of the million. in the bank and see plenty of time with. all her mobility to be with you stories and not because you knew. already here's what i want to write a script is your news for malicious or not while all boards are out there because you're honest. so what is that about a mystical but i'll say it can end up you can't because some prove to us of them at the toxics. it's a little bit about your level of the little bit of earthly we're. a little bit and
11:37 pm
then we'll move the story that the people in mud the illustration here. one of the best examples of a place where people are chronically exposed to chemical pollution is in louisiana between baton rouge and new orleans along the mississippi where there's one hundred fifty industrial facilities all along that corridor. in fact the industry calls it the chemical corridor residents they have a different name for it or they call it cancer alley. in many communities especially here in louisiana you can look out of your bedroom
11:38 pm
window and you're looking at a smokestack and you smell the toxic fumes on a daily basis we have lost historic african-american communities because of the toxic exposures from those companies warranting the relocation of those communities and the entire towns of these historic communities have been raised and only thing you now see if there's any found that they once existed might be their own cemetery grounds while the facilities have gotten larger and expanded into those historic communities that once lived and thrive in this area. there's a culture in the state that really gives the industrial corporations running these facilities a blank check. they pay nothing in property taxes they get to do their campaign contributions and basically elect whoever is going to be in the legislative control of lawmaking in the state they have a lobby that denies and takes away rights of citizens in the state for health care
11:39 pm
for health monitoring in the event of a toxic exposure. so we're in a real sad situation in terms of the power that is industrial corporations have in louisiana and companies like monsanto along with. monsanto's of is like all big agra come a coal company is highly profitable and highly influential in political circles few years ago the complete. a hundred million dollars expansion of the round up plan for instance in cancer alley please welcome our governor bobby jindal and our first lady so pretty agenda. governor jindal whose wife is a foreman one son two employee praised the expansion of the round up plant in twenty ten every year since then this plant in cancer alley has had the most toxic releases in the entire state. is really important to remember there's
11:40 pm
a real difference in any pesticide between is active ingredient which in the case of roundup for example is good life the state versus all the surfactants an urge to go into that full pesticide when it's sprayed and to demonstrate this research it had to ponds with frogs in them in one pond you just put the active ingredient of roundup like to say very little impact on the frogs in the next pond he put the whole formula devastation eighty ninety percent depending on the developmental stage of the frog of death in those frogs so that shows you the difference between just an active ingredient and the whole formula it turned out the surf acted that part of roundup that makes it stick to the crop was so fatal working with the other ingredients in in roundup so failed of us frogs so roundups legal by the way round up is in the band chemical so one thing that's important to consider is on some levels it doesn't matter whether an agricultural chemical has been banned or
11:41 pm
restricted very much yet because we simply don't know what the negative effects of most of these chemicals will be over time they're not studied as complete compounds that are isolated neuro chemical tests that are performed on them of course are not studied on human beings that would be an ethical so essentially it's a big experiment and we just don't know whether it's regulated that they're not shouldn't prohibit us from speculating and also investigating what are the effects of these little chemicals some of them may be as bad as the banned ones. a standard argument against. the health environment and other regulations in the country or for export is that it's harmful to business which of course it i
11:42 pm
mean if bins can kill people freely a lot more profitable than if you have to pay attention to which to sing in the good effects on people and so on on the other hand if you do care about harming people of it's just a matter. of fact it's kind of interesting in this country that. the major industries like the lead as best as tobacco the chemical industries have so often succeeded for decades in the poisoning people with consciously you know the person who probably will the children are going to die of lead poisoning but you got to make profit of course but when you get to export it's a little more vicious because here what's happening of course is. that the domestic population has become organized enough and active enough so they're saying you can't kill us a soothing the ideas if it will kill will kill people who are more vulnerable and
11:43 pm
that's what the export is but yes it's good for business and that it. he hoped to maintain a hand back us and then had him on the net in america a the body. of that young it themselves in the heart of. the lash of the russian fighter got only ninety thousand international month i mean i don't but i will king eco. nuts in the world just cheeky just a fun month for matching the much of the answer the man not answering the a modicum and. gave a subtle them all a muscle when they took the money in the. grant the. most of going to get you know knowing the say.
11:44 pm
soon the thank. you so if you need em go again you on your way them and they're going to be looking to go to susan and if a slow down was on the hook think the media elite us see. us in a little demo you know the my company is going to so that i think look why didn't i mention it in the super awesome he gave it to supply us is that us is the one they're gonna come by their pretty sweet idea guess you get the broker and no one talks you go on film or get us to trust you on it us today i'm. me you're this you need to put up a worked up on me when i see a bunch of them book and yeah you saw me put my pharmacy on you when you know.

be some to. come. you know where meadow a cable where i deal with dead people to look aside i found them a heritage. he said i normally will promote a book you know for a moment anyway and ross said another and once you you know if he can as i noted. he also known as i am a nominal then when i saw my mother it was i know you you know the one image argument of it he went to yeah see you don't want to. see i mean i support their life when only. going to get any at that he hook me when i get out of the hook. after that i mean that will tell if one of your at that
11:48 pm
moment you're not going to alarm on. a hook and they're going to hold a colossal. despite these threats sophia and the mothers continued their fight they ultimately succeeded in getting a new aerial pesticide spraying within two thousand five hundred metres of homes. about two years ago the prime minister of the time on invited me to help become hundred percent about it so what we've been doing in these two years is my team goes twice a year and works with the palms and the brittany's come and train at our farm and that at the moment we practise an ecological and without it with no chemicals and we have no pests and nothing at all we have lots and lots of insects.
11:49 pm
to make old local farms organic would make it the first country in the world to convert to a fully organic agricultural system and the sale of pesticides. has been almost very important because our country has very little land under cultivation and of the whole country and we have only about it percent of that understood actually edible and all of that because of our limited human resources we only come to beating one point nine percent of the land and to keep that percentage very low percentage of land cultivatable for a long time it is important for people to make sure that this is enough organic matter so that the soil doesn't degenerate the soil is almost sustained because for
11:50 pm
generations this is only the length that we have to farm on and on to use it up in one. mission and not leave productive land for the next generation so it has always been a tradition that is taking care. of them out of. the british government has very very clearly decided to not measure growth which measures only how much commerce takes place and of course you can have lots of growth by first creating best decides the pesticide industry makes lots of profits that's grow people get cancer the same pesticide companies sell your patented gobs of medicine that's growth this growth is not measuring welfare it
11:51 pm
