a child will burn the street kids just like them make good. for some pedophile his nickname there me he's is a blueprint for the incoming government on how they can rescue young people drawn to crime his buddies a patchwork of tattoos and knife cuts product of a life of violence and drug addiction until he hit bottom and line up by the way in my family my mother was sick with kidney failure they called me and i was drinking with my crew thinking tomorrow should be ok and she died and i didn't get to say goodbye and to kill the pain i jumped in front of cars i tried to hang myself from a tree in my garden i was taking cocaine all the time i was twenty four years old that was the turning point he sought help a christian mentor who gave him his first job he in turn says he gained a faith and a mission to help san luis is young and marginalized but when i realized there aren't public policies for the young and there are lots of them like me who didn't
10:22 pm
get to choose where they live children with dreams stops just like me i wanted to be an actor so i started to campaign for space for them to try and reduce the fights between gangs. formed an association an organized football tournament stances work programs hundreds of gang members turned up to broker peace deals between them. i see him as an example to follow that you can come from the barrio and still managed to become someone. now he's heading to the local congress not everyone's pleased many criticize his criminal past and doubt his reform. he says he's received threats but he says he can't let down those in the city's gangs know his approach chimes with the incoming president and there's manuel lopez obrador nationwide plans beilenson mexico's record levels and the incoming administration says the strategy has to change rather than just confronting those drawn to
10:23 pm
organized crime they say that young people need to be offered other options. controversially that includes an amnesty for some low level gang members only he supports that and so far his base seems to follow him but they have a warning. to the news just don't lose sight of who you are remember it's better to be remembered as a good person than to have a street named after you thank you that's a test for me he's on the rest of the incoming government they bring the social change they promise will succumb to their newfound political power john holdren son luis potosi the new christopher robin movie will not be released in china and many believe that's because the leaders paying is prickly about comparisons between him and one of the lead characters namely winnie the pooh china's censorship of the cartoon bear started last year with authorities blocking images on social media because people were likening poos
10:24 pm
a perience appearance to seize it aaron brown explains. winnie the pooh of course means different things to different people to many children around the world he's the adorable pudgy bear with a partial for honey but it seems here in china he has become an enemy of the state that's because a new film made by disney christopher robin in which winnie the pooh of course has a starring role will not now be shown in china no reason has been given china imports about forty foreign films a year and while that quota hasn't been reached yet no reason has been given as to why christopher robin will not now be shown in china now winnie the pooh's sort of got in the crosshairs of chinese censors more than a year ago that's when images started appearing online contrast ing winnie the pooh with president xi jinping there was apparently
10:25 pm
a physical resemblance the most popular meme photograph of all is one which pairs a picture of xi jinping and then president barack obama with another picture of winnie the pooh and his good mate tigger winnie the pooh has in many ways become a symbol and unlikely symbol of dissent that's because loucheux bo who won the nobel peace prize and of course died in hospital more than a year ago was pictured holding a mug with an image of winnie the pooh on it shortly before he died it was a final defiant stance by a man who had been a thorn in the side of china's government for so long now while it's fair to say that censorship under president xi jinping has been getting worse during the past few years you know as a journalist you encounter it every day here in china there has never the less been
10:26 pm
some pushback during the past few weeks just last week there was a protest by parents outside. by the health ministry here in beijing they believe the government is covering up the true extent of a vaccine scandal vaccines substandard vaccines that emerged were given to children for things like tetanus typhoid and also hooping cough as well as rabies but as we now know those vaccines were sub standard and then just a few days ago there was a curious essay that was published online it was written by a prominent chinese academic and he criticized president xi jinping and said it was time for the communist party to look again at what happened in one thousand nine hundred ninety when those protests ended in so many people dying he said it was chime for the chinese government to re-evaluate what happened in one thousand nine hundred nine and he also said it was time for the party to reverse its decision to
10:27 pm
end two term limits for president xi jinping president xi at the moment of course arguably the most powerful chinese leader since chairman mao people in europe are being told to stay hydrated as a record breaking heat wave sweeps across the continent here in london many residents are buying bottles of water to keep cool but that's also led to a surge in plastic waste now the mayor said the cardinal wants to turn the tide on the british capital's plastic problem by bringing back water fountains catherine stansell reports. london may have been the city that pioneered the public drinking fountain but its popularity has dried up since this one was built in eight hundred fifty nine. only a handful of watch a fountain success to the capitol today as more people reach for bottled water to quench their thirst now with the growing threat of plastics to the environment
10:28 pm
london wants to bring a new generation of water fountain to the british public. earlier this year mayor sidique khan announced a pilot scheme of twenty water stations to be built it's part of a nearly one million dollar project to reduce plastic waste in london over the next three years they're being installed in shopping districts and commuter hubs and if they prove successful the project may expand the scope for expanding the extent of a ability of water for londoners is huge we need to make sure that people have access to water and then not having to pay for it but the the all the benefit that would come would actually be in reducing congestion if you move water in pipes then rather than in plastic bottles that have to be transported by lorry you reduce the number of lorries on the road you reduce the road danger and you make your city streets into healthier and better places to be every minute one million plastic drinking bottles are bought around the world in britain more than seven and
10:29 pm
a half billion single use water bottles are used every year london is the biggest consumer and the worst for recycling the average adult buys one hundred seventy five plastic water bottles a year less than half are recycled many of them end up here in britain's waterways this small team of volunteers is working with the charity thames twenty one they're part of thousands of people who help clean and monitor the rubbish that flows through the river each year times twenty one thousand of our ten percent of the rubbish they collect here is plastic half of that are single use plastic bottles like this one and just a few months ago volunteers here in london collected more than four thousand single used bottles in just one day. the charity hopes the new fountains will make a difference one of the reasons that people are buying water is because they don't have access to drinking water when there are about the london drinking fountain the fund is going to fund twenty new fountains that's
10:30 pm
a great start we certainly want to see move but we have very hopeful that people will start to use them and hopeful that more people will think of the environment and turn on the taps instead of turning to the bottle cap and stats are al-jazeera london. more on that and never seeing else the way have been covering here on al-jazeera on our website there it is the address al-jazeera dot com. i'll bring a reminder of our top stories iran's president hassan rouhani has given a television interview accusing washington of being untrustworthy this just hours before u.s. sanctions come back into effect the sanctions were triggered by donald trump's the says him to pull out of the two thousand and fifteen nuclear deal rouhani accused of waging psychological warfare on iran that's because to. the person who was abandoned because the nations is trump and his government is doing something which
