9:01 am
and the people are afraid because of what's happening here i called orders in place designed to prevent protesters coming anywhere near here it clearly didn't was that legal action was taken after their last raid on the airport which saw people camp inside the terminal for several days. all they do is all hong kong airport is very important to the economy we chose here to try to paralyze it and make our point instead of randomly picking street talk e.p.i. it's most better to come here. i this time the sight of the police moving in was enough to force a retreat for most arabs those not quick enough were arrested was in the end the protest to stay at the airport was a relatively brief one but again they proved they can strike at what they say is a soft target before the police moved in to retake you're. still it would be

a long time before transport began to return to normal meaning long walks for many travelers the demonstrators may have moved on but they weren't done seemingly frustrated by the closure of a nearby train station they vented their anger leaving it in disarray as night falls the protesters fanned out to different locations and the police don't seem to be able to match the agility of those down trying to chase was and when it's time for a police retreat loitering protest is in many people living in areas where some of the violence has taken place find their voices ago. and as the officers leave the not she it is keepers of the peace instead jeered as the enemy and symbols of a system many here are trying to change wayne hey al jazeera hong kong. time for a short break here al-jazeera when we come back mexico's president promises to tackle violence and corruption but it's not enough for angry protesters.

extending further out towards the southwest but you can see again on the satellite here all this cloud we have now it's not just the last few days we've had some very heavy rains across luzon a particular for the last several weeks so not surprisingly we have got some areas that looks like this there's more rain in the 4 calls from those storm systems further to the south we've got the usual showers and thunderstorms but as we head into cheese day it's a mostly dry picture across much of this region maybe some thunderstorms of course across into singapore then on towards india very heavy rains again particularly up into the northeast of the country i'm natasha's well nepal very catty situation as you can see here and again some more areas under water this is a slam and there's more rain in the forecast. the weather sponsored by countdown. it was a big problem because it was different people admired him he was the center of night life in beirut and he married miss universe hugh was a buoyant character on the other hand a ruthless operative fighting for the palestinian cause some israeli intelligence

coalition in yemen have left at least 70 people dead the strikes hit a detention center early on sunday at the coalition says it targeted a site storing weapons. and hurrican dorian has become the most powerful storm to make landfall in the bahamas with winds gusting up to 350 kilometers an hour the category 5 storm is battering the islands with torrential rain. the death toll from saturday's mass shooting in a desert texas has risen to 7 police have identified the man responsible as 36 year old seth at all but he say he hijacked a mail truck and opened fire at passers by after being stopped by officers offending to signal a left turn he was eventually shot dead by the police. well u.s. president donald trump has again dismissed the role of background checks to help reduce gun violence despite it being the 2nd major shooting in the state of texas in less than a month. so when looking at a lot of different things we're looking at a lot of different. ideas concepts it's been going for
9:07 am
a logo background check i will say that for the most part sadly if you look at the last 4 or 5 going back even 5 or 6 or 7 years for the most part as strong as you make it back greg jack they would not have stopped any of it though it's a big problem it's a mental problem it's a big problem. castro joins us live now from washington d.c. hi you said president trump there saying that background checks wouldn't have prevented the shooting how is this playing out politically. well 1st aaron it's unclear exactly how the president drew that conclusion because the police in middle and has said that it hasn't determined whether the assault rifle used in this shooting was legally or illegally illegally acquire they haven't released that information but trump appears to be talking not just about the shooting but the state of shootings that we've seen in the u.s.
9:08 am
and his line of thinking is very much in keeping with what the national rifle association the powerful gun lobby has been has been preaching to republican politicians and they are very fearful of crossing the line and losing the endorsement of the powerful and are a as far as the previous shooting you mentioned in texas that happened just 4 weeks ago in el paso when a gunman shot 22 people in that border city in a wal-mart and in addition to that the very next day there was yet another shooting of your remember in ohio where an additional 9 people were killed following those incidences there was a push here in washington for congress to take some action the lower house controlled by democrats had already passed a bill requiring background checks on gun purchases however even after those 2 shootings republican leaders in the senate refused to take up the bill for
9:09 am
consideration congress went on recess and then we have exactly what happened yesterday yet another mass shooting that took more lives and the irony to you look specifically at texas derren that in this state just today a spate of new pro-gun laws just happened to take effect these are laws that were passed months ago but they're out it's actually easier today for someone to carry guns onto school property into houses of worship and even into foster homes within texas area and hardly the police now say they've identified the shooter in the death so what will they even say. that's right and they were hesitant at 1st to say aloud the name of the shooter they did release it in print later they say he was 36 year old so a tour a local resident who had a criminal record that included some trespassing still the motive the police are saying is unknown but they did rule out terrorism we also learned some more about
9:10 am
the 7 victims who were killed by the shooter they ranged in age from 15 years old to $57.00 then there are the additional $22.00 people who were injured they include 3 police officers as well as a one year old child who was shot through the mouth the mother of that child has said she does expect her daughter to recover their right to how does the castro there in washington d.c. how do you thank you. president has vowed to tackle violence and corruption in the 1st state of the union address of his presidency despite an increase in violence and a weakening economy and less money loppers obrador still enjoys a high approval rating by over apollo as more from mexico city. during his 1st speech about the state of the nation mexican president and this one window piece of the road so the mexican people are pleased with his accomplishments of the spar. a majority of people support our efforts and they're happy happy

with the work we're doing but as he was speaking hundreds of people were marching protests down mexico city's main avenue where i got the. demonstrations criticizing the president also took place in several other mexican cities at the same time i was there many places where insecurity is extreme the president says we're happy but i'm not happy with the report the president is boasting all he has done but really leaves much to be desired the top complaint among critics of president lopez obrador is the country's detour. rating security situation $2900.00 is expected to be a record setting year for violence in the country surpassing the nearly $35000.00 homicides that took place the year before what we're hearing from people on the streets of mexico city apart from concerns over escalating violence nationwide is a general distrust of the president's rhetoric and criticisms over how the

9:14 am
votes to the f.t. and yet still emerge clear in 1st place for them there now begins the difficult process of trying to build a coalition with parties of the center and the center left out of this shaft we did it and this is a message that we send from saxony a large majority of people want to represent a state in a positive way and want to achieve things differently side of saxony has won. it was also a difficult night for the social democrats who are on the center left of german politics they've been pounding ever since the fall of communism 30 years ago yet on sunday they lost votes and were very nearly beaten by the far right as. it was a tough election campaign it was an intensive discussion and i would like to thank all of you that we succeeded in showing that the state has one party which people trust and that remains brandenburg. one of the key factors for voters in this election had been nostalgia 30 years since the fall of the berlin wall how did
9:15 am
people view the past 3 decades of democracy and there was the role of immigration even though the. 2 states have relatively small immigrant populations compared to the rest of the country this result shows the a.f.d. is now a force to be reckoned with across east germany and although it will not enter government its presence will make coalition building difficult and it throws up one more central question with so many voters now desert ing the 2 main parties how long can their grand coalition continue at a federal level dominic came al-jazeera in brandenburg germany's president has asked poland's forgiveness for nazi crimes best ceremony to mark the 80th anniversary of the start of the 2nd world war frank made the plea alongside his polish counterparts in the city of vienna where the 1st german bombs fell about $6000000.00 polish citizens were killed in the conflict including $3000000.00 jews

9:18 am
submerged during winter this summer it's quite the contrary. archaeologists such challenges are making it hard to carry out their work properly in addition to climatic changes being recorded by aid agencies in the area there's limited money available. nowadays we wait for the water levels decrease said that we continue at excavation we call on international community to help support us in order to continue our work in the city the exclusion has opened a rear window into a lost kingdom but those working here say they will need help if the historic significance and value of the site is to be fully realized. down to 0 at the ancient city of commune. time for a quick check of the headlines on al-jazeera the u.s. says it fully supports israel's right to defend itself after fighting between the

9:22 am
. hello everyone i'm hasn't seek a welcome to the program imagine living in a country or your life and then being told you're not a citizen there that's what nearly 2000000 people are suddenly facing today in india they've been excluded from a list of citizens in the north eastern state of ask them in a process the government says will weed out the illegal immigrants critics say it is an attempt to deport millions of muslims who make up a 3rd of the state's population those excluded now have 4 months to prove they're not foreigners or face detention the national register of citizens was 1st created in 1951 to determine who came to the state before neighboring bangladesh declared independence from pakistan we'll be speaking to our guests in a moment but 1st priyanka gupta reports from assam's largest city guwahati.
9:23 am
an anxious saturday in the south people lined up since early morning to find out if their names are on the state's final list of citizens 47 year old lee general ham on a farm and probably village is on the list but his wife and 3 children are. very worried i feel bad in my heart i am very sad. this and really couple that go hearty also trying to understand what went wrong 71 year old son was born in assam and has lived here all his life his entire family is on the list except him and his 2 daughters i want to get the number 3 who are on the list submitted the same document my daughter and i submitted that as well so how can we be excluded those excluded from assam's final register of citizens will have to appeal and foreigners tribunals like these with 120 days wide scopes including amnesty
9:24 am
international are calling for transparency as they have been several reports suggesting that some proceedings have been biased and discriminatory. the group that spearheaded the protest movement against foreigners the all the some students' union says the list should belong to business where it is not new to be all of it declared regard by the government to be going to us and we expected more. that's our feeling so we're not happy. so you feel that there maybe somewhere or in the process. and the answer is not complete so for remedial misery we liberals to be honorable to be good again. and the hindu nationalist b.g.p. the ruling party in both you tell us some state says it's alarmed it says it will appeal to india's high school to revivify the documents of indians living in a muslim dominated part of districts the b.g.p. tried to pass a law earlier this year to allow citizenship rights to persecuted minorities from
9:25 am
neighboring countries muslims were left out the proposal provoked protests by coops that want illegal immigrants to be india. as the arguments would now because of religion grow a protracted legal battle faces nearly 2000000 people a defeat as he gets. out 0 quality. or let's bring in our panel now joining us from our sam via skype. pressure altie deputy editor of the wire from new delhi desh nigam a member of the rushed area so i am 70 sang the ideological parent body of the ruling b j p and from london ronan li visiting scholar at queen mary university of london's international state crime initiative welcome all of you to the program. if i could start with you then just give us
9:26 am
a sense of the challenges the people there are dealing with because i know you've you've spoken to many of them and what sort of recourse do they have to address this issue that they're facing of not being on the list. ok i need today i was like in a village earlier not very far from the capital of assam go ahead of us about 50 kilometers have been some villages and i met so many people who are out of this this and there are most of them are poor people and not much educated or not you know financially all right and also there is not available information as to what next you know what it rates them so there is certainly a feel there is lot of confusion among peoples in people's mind and.
9:27 am
you know many of them see you normally they just one thing is that some members of their family are in the list some are not so this is actually creating a lot of confusion among people and i feel in the women you know but equally among the muslim community the most of the women are the worst sufferers because the have not been able to establish any link with their parents so that is actually causing a lot of trouble on the ground lot of confusion and they have they were told to give some sort and people as of the local bodies but mean many cases the peoples have not been accepted but in some cases they are so there's so much confusion about you know there's no uniformity to the sea on the ground so what i would see at this point is that the structural problems are actually a lot and that is causing a lot of harassment a lot of confusion among people. state governments for their part are saying
9:28 am
that the this whole process is being very meticulously carried out in a transparent manner they say and every opportunity is going to be given to people who are not currently on the list. to to prove that they are there they belong there and that there will be a due process at every stage how does that square with what you're saying oh yes i understand i've seen all of that but that has come quite late because the already these issues are there in the media you know reports and we see that so just come march a towards the end you know but already some nice wee sights of happened still you know this is very much there staring at your face but the other thing is also you know now what so many of them will have to pull through the final strike when all the entire mechanics and that has been put in place and they will have to show the
9:29 am
same papers that they have so they're all wondering what what what more will they be able to provide and so that is one pig and the other thing is also that the supreme court's recent. the odds are that after 3 years they'll be taken out of the detention camps so they're wondering whether if you feel the test and the tribunals will be put in the detention camps then after 3 years you come out is that a mccann isn't that has been put in place the government does not spelt it out clearly about that and the other thing is that once you come out are you a citizen or non-citizen or how on what basis will you be kept so do those things are very much there and ice can see that on the ground royally what in your view is is the purpose of this register since the purpose of the. well well the purpose it serves is effectively to create statelessness it's
9:30 am
important i think to understand the context that this registration process occurs in it occurs in a context where the recent indian general election was fought and won by the nationalist prime minister modi on a watchman security based nationalist platform in recent times this been the annexation of kashmir and now in assam we're seeing a group of residents primarily muslims being targeted by by this registration process i mean this this appears on many levels to be designed to create statelessness to change the demographics of assam and to unfairly exclude non hindu religious and ethnic religious minorities and what do you say run into those in india who argue that this is
9:31 am
a perfectly normal process that goes on in many countries throughout the world that you have to be able to prove that your a citizen and people are being given ample opportunity to do that. well again context is important if if there was a genuine attempt to confirm who is who is a citizen of of india and who is not then perhaps the place that you would begin that process wouldn't be a psalm and you'd begin the process by outlining to the people who have been required to participate in it that it's not targeting the muslim population that muslims will be treated fairly and you would reaffirm india's secular founding principles as a country that's multi religious and multi-ethnic that has in the what's occurred associated with the registration process in assam has been a lot of noise from hindu nationalists have already expressed the view the finance
9:32 am
minister understand today of a psalm is already expressed the view that he is unhappy with the outcome that there are not enough people who have been excluded from the muslim population and he expects that those hindus that have been listed on the the list as not not legitimate citizens of india that they will be given some solace through government processes soon i don't think there's anyone that would believe sincerely that this is not a process that is designed to change demographics and to target the muslim population in assam. nigam what's what's your take on this what do you you've heard the criticism that's been made of this and how do you tell someone who was born and raised in india lived their whole life and in many cases their parents their grandparents came from india to suddenly be told that they're not indian at all. see you have to see case by case basis to every country has
9:33 am
a right to maintain their record of their own citizens and they also know that there's a huge amount of illegal immigration that was taking place from bangladesh both in those and muslims so as rightly pointed out by the london guess is they're both hindus and muslims have been left out so it negates the fact that it was directed against one particular community we also know that from our past experiences that huge amount of illegal immigrants out there and assam is one dejan and this being all is another from where they moved to other areas of the country so just it is absolutely legitimate for india to have its own deckard of citizens and they have started from assam and it'll be an all in b. exercise in future the last one was done in $1051.00 so it is high time that the must know who are who are citizens of this country and who are the illegal immigrants yes we have a robust system not the entire exercise is very transparent it is being monitored by the chief justice of india and there is a due process for. some of the grievance so you can go to the foreigners tribunals
9:34 am
then you have the high court then you the supreme court and therefore nobody can complain that they do not have the grievance mccann ism any country democrat and democratic country should have to address a mechanism which is also in place in india so i don't know why this kind of a criticism of biased criticism which is being done. against us over in democratic country who has its own rights busy under the constitution of india what do you say yes to those who argue that the burden of proof on the this and r.c. is so so strange and so. partisan an arbitrary in many cases that the entire exercise seems to them geared to exclude people rather than any any genuine effort to sort of create a roster of indian citizens and there are many examples of this weapon. a father was branded a foreigner in the draft an r.c.
9:35 am
but his son was declared in india and in another case a 6 year old got go past the citizen ship test but her twin brother was found to be a foreigner there's numerous other cases of spelling errors. typo in your grandfather's documents could mean you lose lose your citizenship none of this seems fair does it. so let us be very clear in the 1st draft mistake to come out the 4000000 people were left out not the final list only 1900000 people have been left out and and the cut off date history and the 5th of march of the 1971 so anybody who's come before is allowed and anybody who comes after that is not allowed and therefore they have been very carefully to start spreading to yes there could be mistakes here and there but do you have a progressive mechanism in place like in any other country you can question india's motives anybody who's questioning india's motives here has a lot of explaining to do because that is their right india has
9:36 am
a right to maintain its own register of citizens how can you criticize india's right to maintain its own register of citizens when and the world has this even the us is trying to limit the illegal immigration and we have you know scarce natural cygnus sources and we have a huge population of 1370000000 people so one has to balance and india has always been a very calming host country but not that that you know generosity was being misused by the people from across the border and they were coming in holds and that has changed the you know demo kind of feeling stick social and cultural identity of many districts in the region where the indigenous culture district and now all of you also know that there are problems there are many many people who are who are not supposed to be year have been including their $4030.00 thickish and then the identification and thing will be a continuous process it is not an end all of busy a situation so law is dynamic yet it discontinuous
9:37 am
a tomato somebody if it is found that somebody has used for dealing documents forged documents to get the citizenship here then that person will be taken to task in the legal process from the start against a person so i do to give both describe a motive to this exercise i think it's too far stretched. sankey to your response to that people should not be questioning the motives behind this. see the it's a very old problem you know from the british colonial dime and that a lot of smaller communities which reside not just in assam but in the rest of the northeast also the smaller benito in some communities they'll be only a 1000 people so 50 people you know this see coming to it's an issue so those things are very much there on the ground and the other issue what i see when i roam around the ground the people from all the communities the been affected by this but considerably i see the muslim community getting affected a lot more but yesterday you know since yesterday they've been getting so many
9:38 am
calls messages that saying that people from all communities including the s m e's and the indigenous communities also so that sort of that again takes us to the question of the structural problems which you also spoke about so that this is something that needs to be taken seriously and the other thing is also. about you know giving that confidence to people you know i believe that this is not the end of the door not not finding one's name in the list itself doesn't meet one status you 2 will to the entire process but but still you know you are thinking about you have to think about the small oh the poor people we really get so much money to fight these cases there's been so many litigations now and even if to go to a tribal you need at least 25000 indian rupees and these are very very poor people even to go you know last month from one part of the state to another party not for revenge if occasion of their documents many of them had to sell their cattle or
9:39 am
they have to put their land on morgridge too so that they could hire a bigger vehicle and dick and that family there so this is the situation we are talking about so it does a lot of human duchesse required at this moment yeah let's put some of that back to desha then the criticism there that much of this discriminates against poor dealers and they don't have the means to you know to go to the various offices to pay for transport to get all the to get all of the documents and so on what do you say to that. see the fact remains it just started yesterday so it's just too early busy to comment on the process because this process is slow to slowly take off the ground the farm mistry bills are being increased the state government has also promised legal aid to the people whose name has been left out and they will help them in due process of time and one can understand but but it is the duty of the nation to prepare their record of citizens and their food it is an exercise which had to be
9:40 am
taken although it has taken late but it should have been done by the previous governments long time back but the fact remains the state governments are doing busy providing legally other things also in the process and that is a due process available to them and service centers you know what we call c. walk ins are being open to help them so i don't think it is just yesterday it started and nobody you know. busy should be you know it does not that then does a possum nothing is happening so slowly slowly people will approach the service centers they will go to legal aid centers there are really facilities please wait have patients run in lee up to now we mostly been talking about how this. process is taking place in the state of ass and but the government has made it clear that they want to expand this nationally if that want to happen what what are your fears about this. well my fear is is that my fear is that we will see
9:41 am
a replication of what's happened in other parts of the region just nearby in me and not. an oppressed muslim minority the key element that began their oppression in myanmar was an aggressive citizenship verification process during the $970.00 s. and from that time on their rights were increasingly restricted and then some decades later they were forcibly deported from from me and ma and there's now some 1000000. residents in refugee camps in bangladesh but there's also rich in camps within me and ma and then not allowed to leave concerning lee prime minister modi visited me and mine at the time that the forced migration was taking place during 2017 and he was supportive of the government of me and mas approach so

in that context it must be chilly when people in the somme who found themselves not on the citizenship register noice that there have been detention camps built in assam and that the government intends to build 10 more detention camps within some those people not on the n.r.c. today must be deeply concerned that the future they face could well be some something very similar to the to the face of the wrecking. you mention there how you know everything every country has has the the right and the need to to get a register of all of its citizens to to to update this and so on. but i want to ask you about the context in which this is happening a little bit more and the timing this is being carried out by a government and a ruling party that has its roots in hindu nationalism and there has this been this climate of of hindu nationalism in india over the last few years.
9:43 am
what mess if you believe that india is a state. that belongs to all to people of all faiths what message does this send to non hindus in india so india belongs to people of all feet and that is given in our constitution and therefore we have a vote it been posed to muslims in india but illegal immigrants are illegal in immigrants it respectable religion so illegal immigrants have to be concerned about it and they should be concerned about it because we have discussed natural resources i think you need to have a very uniform policy the universal policy where you know the entire countries of the world take the burden busy of the illegal immigrants or the refugees that come not india we have huge number of in estimated to separate busy from 1951 we have had about a 120000000 you know people coming into india so it becomes the universal issue and
9:44 am
a problem in every country must you know share the legal immigrants already to fiji's that are coming having said that this issue started giving the congress time there was an accord between the some students union and the government of india that government of india and then the it was decided that there will be there will be a register of citizens so it's not. the gypsies are the present garments. it just going to mean from the past and this promise to the people of us was being deferred to our very day and that created a huge problem if you've had been done in going to talk about it then we would have a bill to look on in the problem then and there we've got about a minute left i'm going to give what's probably going to last what now to. well and just. from what i see on the ground as i said there's a lot of fear out there is lot of confusion and i expect at the you know incoming
9:45 am
times that the government will also come to the aid of dispy people and that is one thing and the other thing i want to it is. you know there's a little difference between what the s.o.b.'s the majority community which i also come from. thinking at the moment and what the government is thinking which is the b.g.p. led government in the state and the sentence would be should be government if there is certainly and a communal overtone or not is into this but what i see among the community and my conversations with a lot of intellectuals and the student leaders the other of course the us who is a little worried about you know it or not a not too happy with the number that it got yesterday so that's also because you know all at various points of time the parliament in the parliament various ministers have given out some numbers though does not scientific basis to those numbers are they are saying this but that but what i see is that the the people here the people are looking at it as a migration issue they're not looking at as a human the muslim issue yet we're going to look but in coming days we don't know
