care about is to be ready to be deployed in parliament so we asked the spokesman of south africa's congress of unions which negotiated and agreed to the minimum wage he said it's not ideal but it's a start and it will help four million out of the lowest paid workers we should not send them for streams. we knew. that his client going to seven percent of the population that is unemployed that doesn't have seventeen million people who are unfair you can pretend as if that economy has this down mean and that is also is to give people two of those and under two and minimum wage is there really to a flat out in twenty strike is waiting to see if the government will give them more and for the organizers the breakaway federation of unions is the first major test of that power malcolm webb al-jazeera johannesburg south africa. a french believe

i'll give the top stories of al-jazeera this hour the french president has used a speech to the joint session of congress of the u.s. to urge the country to reject nationalism and preserve the iran nuclear deal but in the past few hours about the role of call has said that he's not confident the president will try to stay in the pact. but just as a back on the streets of armenia's capital after the acting prime minister canceled crisis talks with the opposition protesters. says that he is ready to lead them till you elections the police california of charged a former police with a suspect of being the so-called golden state killer a serial rapist and murderer in the one nine hundred seventy s. beatty's seventy two year old joseph james to angelo was held after d.n.a. from his home matched crime scene evidence. thousands of people in berlin have rallied in support of the jewish community demonstrators wearing pippa's came out a week after the attack after an attack on two men wearing the caps dominick came
reports. many hundreds of people have come here to the center of violence take part in this demonstration of peaceful protest as it were against the sorts of scenes that we witnessed last week when two people were attacked by a person who had seen them wearing the jewish keep the skullcap and who had screamed anti semitic abuse at them the point to make here is this demonstration here is just one of several taking place in german cities in three other places there are similar sorts of demonstrations the point being made is the pride that members of the jewish community feel in their face and the fact that they want to highlight the evils of what they consider anti semitism to be there's also some other point to make the german government has been very clear that it feels that anti semitism must be stamped out wherever possible and certainly that's something that the chancellor angela merkel has made very plain in several speeches since the events as i referred to earlier that we witnessed the anti semitic abuse that took place in the prince loud back and area of this city berlin so just to repeat that
there are many hundreds of people here this is not an isolated demonstration taking place there are others across germany today or highlighting what these people consider to be the evils of anti-semitism hundreds of migrants have captured donald trump's attention and anger with their journey through central america have begun to arrive at the us mexico border many of them trying to seek asylum but while apollo reports from tijuana. more than one hundred central american migrants have arrived at the us mexico border for many of these men women and children the journey has been the ultimate test of physical and mental resilience. the most difficult thing has been traveling on the train because the children became seriously ill some of them trying to do so you see it's difficult after traveling. for a month from honduras carlos and his family are tired hungry and anxious.
each one of us here has a story and each one of us has a case to make who traveled all the way here with our families because we all have something bad that's happened in our lives and. these new arrivals are part of a larger group of migrants seeking asylum in the united states most say they're fleeing violence or persecution in their own countries including hundreds well solved or and guatemala. the vast majority who want to get across and seek political asylum some are already organized with attorneys that are helping them prepare too but to answer questions when interviewed by u.s. immigration officials in the united states the department of homeland security announced recently that any illegal entries into the country by members of this migrant group will be referred for prosecution i know you know now if you want to the asylum seekers are being helped by immigration activists and charity volunteers who are providing temporary shelter medical aid and food but their journey doesn't end here many central american migrants who have arrived at the border and plan to
turn themselves in to u.s. authorities in the coming days but the process for seeking asylum in the united states can be long and has no guarantees for many the next step is still unknown when you add it up. the white house has criticized the ruling against the trumpet ministrations decision to end the program as wrong the plan to shield stiles ins of young immigrants known as dreamers from deportation and gives them work permits just ruled terminating the program was based on virtually unexplained grounds. south korea has released more details about its meeting with the north on friday president moon j n will greet snored korea's kim jong un at the border as he steps across the military demarcation line kim will be accompanied by his sister during the talks. two leaders are expected to announce a joint agreement after the meeting the first in more than a decade kathy novak has been speaking with people who live in one community inside
the four kilometer area between the koreas is the demilitarized zone she reports now from tehsil this is a farming village unlike any other in south korea it's inside the heavily guarded demilitarized zone that separates the two koreas north korea is just over a kilometer in that direction gooders who strayed over the border in the past were arrested by north korean guards so farmers get a military escort to their rice fields to go through. we have to report every time we enter and exit the village were farmers so we have to go out just tell our crops but so many restrictions apply to us which makes it very difficult. when the one nine hundred fifty three armistice ended hostilities in the korean war the two koreas set up a village each inside the d.m.z. as a sort of model of what life is like on either side the south koreans call ki jiang
on the other side a propaganda village they don't believe people really live there when south korea erected one hundred meter flagpole the north put up a one hundred sixty meter flagpole villagers are close enough to hear propaganda broadcasts from the north but they say they haven't heard any since monday after south korea announced it would stop broadcasting its messages across the border for about two hundred residents evacuation drills and a curfew from midnight to sunrise are a way of life but in exchange because this land is under un command locals don't pay taxes to the south korean government with about seventeen acres of farming land per family the average incomes are higher than those of other farmers and men are exempt from mandatory military service the thirty five students at the only school inside the d.m.z. get personalized attention with only about five children per teacher and us soldiers visit to teach english if you're not a direct descendant of an original resident and want to move here you have to be
a woman and marry a local man men don't have that option because the south korean government doesn't want them taking unfair advantage of the military service exemption. britain's parliament is set to debate remaining inside the e used customs union after leaving the european union prime minister as a reason may want the u.k. to quit the tariff free zone many politicians believe that this would be an economic disaster and that's got the fishing industry in scotland where it is also serious lawrence lee reports. if there's anything liable to annoy the supporters of bricks it's it's europeans taking fish from british waters but on the east coast of scotland there's another side to the story the sale starts at seven o'clock. it's midday five hours ago this warehouse was stacked with fish by now it's being prepared for market across the u.k. and abroad more than half will go to europe and it needs to go fast to fetch
a decent price could leave the market here about eleven o'clock process and i've got evening and catch fire in the morning or go through the tunnel whatever. any delay at all to this volume. means an expanse or a lower price for the process which in these times is critical for. many fisherman support breck's it in the interests of protecting their waters and stops but just as many in the fishing industry will open borders with europe can they have both. protecting the rights of british fishermen has become eight hundred ten mc issue for many leading breakfasts as they say the u.k. must leave the european free trade area but staying in the european free trade area is crucial for those parts of the fishing industry which need to move their stock quickly to some of the best rest roles in places like france and spain and that's a big problem how uncertain riches are local delicacy but not if you live in the post for a week. to make a point about what happens to fish if it gets stuck in
a truck for too long and the local m.p. here sent the government minister in charge of bricks it's a traditional fish pie in the post government ministers who support breck's it he says don't understand their own constituency. i believe they're simply choosing to look at the divisions in the tory party they're making the decisions based on politics gnostic economics not the interests of the people in these islands it's time they looked at the harsh realities of where they got the story. of course it isn't the only fish anything perishable or goods reliant on a fast turnaround could be affected disastrously if british trucks are forced to queue for days before entering the continent they were in continue discussions with the u.k. government and scottish government i think the concern is we've had real clarity as to what you can government don't want which is the customs union but real uncertainty still as to what the future does hold. in peterhead they're expanding
the ports because they believe their markets will grow supporters of the shore continental europe will fall for a deal on taxes and tariffs because they love to eat british fish the livelihoods of people here may depend on this assumption gloriously al-jazeera east and scotland. light pollution is threatening to undermine our ability to search for life on other planets it's even happening in chile's atacama desert one of the darkest places on earth. to see in human reports now from a parallel observatory in northern chile. at sunset the views from the european southern observatory located in chile's at the camera desert are breathtaking but it's a night when the deep darkness and unique atmosphere and conditions of the at the camera to these guys into heaven for astronomers. but at the pattern al observatory scientists probe the universe with giant telescopes but at twenty six hundred meters above sea level and one hundred fifty kilometers from the city of

to making the discovery of all time the great for adventure of humanity right now is happening here which is we're looking for life in the universe. and that is happening right now hearing the outcome of this. and for that darkness is crucial this is sort of structure may look familiar it was used as the location for the lair of the forces of evil in the james bond film quantum solace but in fact the reason why it is practically underground is to keep the lights from leaking out at night from this pattern as residents of some one hundred and fifty astronomers and technicians news in chile will house seventy percent of global astronomical infrastructure in less than five years along with the world's largest telescope but astronomers are sending out an s.o.s. warning that if mankind continues to over illuminated the skies we will lose the
