take place in iraq for example and in some parts of india that also involved millions and millions of people. but the hives pilgrimage itself is one that is quite unique for its logistical burdens and for the mass migration of people through different stages of the of the ritual over the course of a number of a number of days and so it does create take quite a bit quite a bit of sophistication to pull this up. in atlanta in the states thank you. the protesters are occupying the arrival area of hong kong's international airport for a 2nd day they're planning to stay there for the rest of the weekend to make people flying into the territory aware of their dispute with the government the protests to plunge the city into its most serious political crisis in decades $1000.00 protesters are marching in typo in the north of hong kong the demonstrations organizer called the event off on friday after it was banned by the police but much as went ahead with it anyway riot police reform the blockade in front of the
5:01 pm
protestors bride joins us live from hong kong so rob how would you sum up the police authorities attitude towards this so far it seems to be a case of gently gently. i think so peter if they have learned the tactics they've adopted this tactics since to the very much the early days of this whole movement rather than trying to inflame the situation they tend to keep a low profile they tend to keep in the background as long as there's not too much misbehaving going on the police have not given permission for this march but there's no way they were going to stop the numbers that have turned out for this south thousands have turned out many of them are wearing masks because technically they could face i suppose some sort of action for what they are doing where in the high street of typo market as it's called is one of fairly medium sized town up near the border with china in what's known as the new territories here and it's a medium towns like this that you do see that kind of the numbers they do swell and
5:02 pm
they quickly suck up space in these much smaller streets that we have in these small towns now we've been watching people go past here they've been going down this main street and basically taken over this whole street for the best part of an hour or so thousands of people have been going down here a number of businesses are closed down here in the anticipation possibly of some trouble having said that there are a couple of stores still open normally stores that are supportive of these protesters and yes we've heard a lot a lot this week from lead to carry lamb about the effect of these protests on business and business has been damaged but quite a few businesses actually support these protesters this is one over the back here it's a thai restaurant they say they're closed except for giving stuff out to passing protestors and we've seen a couple of stores like that being open and giving giving away drinks giving away water on what is another swelteringly hot day as they moved down here now thousands
5:03 pm
of protesters are moved down here we will continue after them in the big question is once they get to their destination which is another park what happens then many people we know will go home but there's a very good atmosphere it has. to be said on this march a lot of families a lot of people with young children but as we go along you do see people starting to reach into their backpacks start to bring out the the ubiquitous yellow helmets the goggles the gas masks and there are police we've seen them down towards the main police station here riot police ready and waiting so it does look as though once this demonstration is over it may morph into something else we don't know where their destination is probably a lot of the people marching don't know where the destination is but i think that's probably a good bet it could well be something like a typo police station peter you get the feeling there of that maybe the protesters have to think of a different tactic because they're not going to get it would appear what they want you would have been taking us through the 5 key demands that they've been after now
5:04 pm
for several weeks and carry lamb is signaling very clearly again i see be careful what you wish for because you know our friends in beijing they're watching this. that's right there's only so much that carry all the governments of hong kong could and would ever concede you always have to assume that behind them is beijing standing firm not wanting to give ground or be seen to to give ground so it's a real it's a real a deadlock there are the it would be possible for with beijing's consent for hong kong to give just a couple of those concessions not maybe some of the more far fetched or demanding ones but something like announcing a an independent judicial inquiry into the police handling of those protests that's something that has been done here before it's something that gets done as a matter of course in any developed society it wouldn't be that hard to do or just giving the official withdrawal of this extradition bill but after all of this this
5:05 pm
marching in the street all of this unrest the last thing that beijing you sense will ever do is make it look as though it's going to give way to people marching and demonstrating in the street that's what they did just the kind of thing that beijing doesn't do you said you have heard from some officials that you know if people just get off the streets then maybe you know if it doesn't look as though beijing is being forced to back down it may give concessions but you know what they said that 5 years ago people got fed up with the protests they stopped occupying streets everybody thought well maybe now with the cooler heads can prevail beijing could allow some concessions and in the past 5 years it looks like beijing and also the government here has done pretty much 0 peter rob thanks very much we'll check in with you a little later. plenty more ground still to cover for you on al-jazeera including these stories why violence in aden is threatening to open a new front in the conflict in yemen. and fears of radiation exposure after rockets

5:07 pm
next few days as it goes towards monday the storm is going to slowly make its way to the north slowly also getting weaker but still we do expect to see a tropical storm intensity with this storm on monday though we're going to be seeing some rain also crossing over here toward north korea so localized flooding could be a big problem there but in terms of how much rain we do expect to see well over the next 3 days we could be seeing anywhere between $200.00 to $250.00 millimeters of rain across much of this area and that rain will extend even more towards the north so for beijing also some very heavy rain for you as well shanghai expect to see the rain start to dwindle as we go towards monday as well for seoul though it is going to be a nice day we do expect see clear skies for you. whether sponsored by cattle. it's very difficult. for restaurants or to buy shrimp with the confidence that what you're serving is going to be good seafood by nature is a high commodity sometimes. production drugs. are not approved for

a new prime minister. negotiate a new rx that he'll say a deal the e.u. says cannot be renegotiated. this is techno innovations that can change lives the science of fighting wildfires we're going to explore the intersection of hardware and humanity and we're doing you a unique way. this is a show about science blow not nice scientists. tonight techno investigates shrimp safety the seafood by nature is a high risk commodity for americans love their shrimp but most of it comes from countries that use extensive antibiotics that could make you ill now techno goes inside the federal testing program and working through all. that's supposed to protect the food supply doctors should use more is mechanical engineer she will
5:23 pm
share the results of her investigation to how dangerous is that for human beings and i'm still taurus i'm an entomologist i visit a shrimp farm in the middle of indiana. yes indiana that could revolutionize the industry well this is like a little laboratory here yes it is for sure santa maria it is a neuroscientist. imagine that you are one of the 1st to take a trip to mars. this is the definition of pioneering that's what makes it exciting that's our team now let's do some science. yes. hey guys and welcome to techno on phil tours joined by dr should you some laura and kara santa maria because i'm not going to one of my favorite things is shrimp singling away on a hot grill but i also have
5:24 pm
a fair amount of hesitation when it comes to actually knowing where that shrimp comes from then you may not realize it but shrimp raised overseas can have high levels of antibiotics and other additives that don't always pass american safety standards and america imports a lot of shrimp ira 1000000000 pounds worth so we also the food and drug administration the agency responsible for policing us ports if we can follow them while they test unsafe shipments. that america has a jumbo appetite for shrimp it's a little piece of flesh that they could be easy it's kind of like popcorn of the sea americans it's an average of 4 pounds pop past a year. at fred 62. chef fred eric serves a lot of shrimp and it's very difficult as a chef or a restaurant or to buy shrimp with the confidence that what you're serving them is
5:25 pm
going to be good try called fresh make sure. americans taste the shrimp comes with a price. 90 percent of only shrimp eaten in the u.s. is imported. much of it from countries like india thailand and indonesia sometimes trip is raised overseas using production drugs like antibiotics that are approved for use in those countries but not approved for use in the u.s. johns hopkins microbiologist david love surveyed federal data on drugs found in imported shrimp some of the top drugs that we found in shrimp were fewer and chloramphenicol tetracycline itself on a meds and instructor meissen what does it mean for the consumer to be exposed to antibiotic resistant bacteria if you get an infection from these bacteria it can be hard to treat using antibiotics especially if these bacteria are resistant to the antibiotics that your doctor would prescribe. bombs that use antibiotics
5:26 pm
often farm with overcrowded pawn diseases are a big deal in shrimp farming can be a high mortality rate in some shrimp farms. the food and drug administration polices shrimp imports. $5500000000.00 pounds of c. think it is imported into the united states every year and much of it ends up in a cold storage facility like this one in southern california but only a tiny fraction of all of that seafood is actually inspected so we've come here today to find out exactly how the f.d.a. . emily morrison is a veteran f.d.a. inspector we've collected one subsample out of 50 brand boxes
5:27 pm
and now in the process is bagging them. put them in coolers. and ship it to the land a computer system. red flags imports believed to pose the greatest risk based on country of origin and the company's past history of violations seafood by nature is a high risk commodity done so lease has inspections at the ports of los angeles so there are many boxes here and there will pop full what percentage of the song pool gets chosen to be taken to the lab so f.d.a. reviews all electronic transmissions and we utilize things like foreign inspection domestic inspection whether it was sampled and another for all that information is gather within the predict application and then that shipment will be given a risk or the higher the risk or the more chances one of these officers will sample that much at. once the f.d.a.
5:28 pm
inspector picks samples for inspection is sent to an f.d.a. lab like this one and find california. you may see a shrimp maybe i'm working. through i can't imagine. that the shrimp powder is mixed with a chemical solvent dried and liquefied again run through an analyzer. is an f.d.a. chemist so kind the results are written from the tests what are they showing us in this closed the compound working for sponsored programs and how dangerous is that for human beings virtual current is dangerous for human beings because it's cost some of the night. before now so for this hour 1. 1 cause for this improvement to avoiding one salt you know that size swimming. so how
5:29 pm
many parts per 1000000000 is this result i was is about $100.00 true cost of building so $2.00 grains and so in the olympic sized swimming pool when you've managed. i find it. is incredible so that batch of shrimp is not allowed in this country essentially this is not going to be along this the f.d.a. simply isn't testing enough on the imported market to really find all of these violet of residues dr rangan had a study of imported for the june 2015 issue of the influential magazine consumer reports of the $205.00 imported farm samples that we found a leaven of those actually had illegal residues of antibiotics on them that comes out to about 5 percent of the imported farm shrimp samples being contaminated with an illegal antibiotic residue the fact that the f.d.a. only tests about point 7 percent of all the shrimp in this country for those
5:30 pm
antibiotic residues suggests that the agency is not actually testing enough shrimp to catch the amount of legal residue products that may be coming into the market however many of the countries that export the shrimp commit the use of antibiotics when you feed low levels of antibiotics every day you're not feeding them enough to necessarily kill bacteria those bacteria can become resistant to those antibiotics and that can make those antibiotics less effective in people if we're infected by those bacteria just as worrisome was the number of shrimp that tested positive for bacteria we found about a 3rd of the shrimp that we had had vibrio contamination vibrio is one of the few food borne illnesses on the rise 7 of the samples we found had mercy that's concerning to you and that's probably primarily associated with the amount of processing that goes on the shrimp production both have the potential to cause illness in the cooking process they can be killed we do know that there are shrimp
5:31 pm
farms and production practices that are doing a lot more to address those issues that are addressing hygiene and addressing. other issues so that they aren't heavily reliant on drugs or other chemicals. 600 miles from the nearest ocean nestled in a patchwork of windmills and soybean and corn fields. indiana. a mom and pop indoor salt water shrimp form. their own there over and asked during a welcomed r.d.f. travis county. carlina and darryl brown or accidental shrimp farming pioneers are you going to now i'm at 6 pounds with $32.00 dozen basic backyard pools as growing tanks they've perfected an indoor system with 0 waste no chemicals in the 90 percent survival rate. that's
5:32 pm
a 3rd higher than traditional outdoor shrimp farms well this is like a little laboratory here yes it is in the short form yes it is we do 9 tests every single day we do temperature dissolved oxygen night shy c o 2 salinity alkalinity ph ammonia and flop as you can see our water is brown the test for doing here right now is we're trying to see how much bacteria is in our water and we call the settling so you're basically waiting for all this bacteria to go to the bottom and that tells you how much is it how much we have an exact like and for over a certain level then we have to get it out of the tanks otherwise it's going to start suffocating the shrimp that's very important that has to be done every day basically we're not even stripped farmers anymore we ask ourselves guardians of water as long as the water does what it's supposed to be doing the trick to just fine we add no antibiotics no hormones are ever added into our tanks you heard that right no antibiotics no hormones just fish food salts and baking so it's called
5:33 pm
ahead route trophic by a flock system a process that revolver around bacteria no it looks very grown what is this round that i'm seeing the ground is the bacteria the bacteria. why they excel their way so that they can survive without a major filter here's what's happening below the surface the shrimp eat their feed in excrete the monia the bacteria turns that into toxic nitrates other bacteria turn that into benign nyjer traits and as the waters air rated the nitrates turn into a harmless gas and around and around and how long have you had this water for years and how does it compare to other short forms some don't have water that we by mistake actually kept our water it's like it's maturing it's like one you know the us and we just found out that the older it gets the better it gets and so too for the shrimp the growing process starts every month with about $250000.00 newborns called post larval zx nicknamed if you.
