2:31 pm
welcome to global three thousand this week we hang out with some lovers of the slow life the future of these mellow creatures though is under threat we go to turkey well autists is struggling to cope with the increasingly autocratic grip of the government. but first we had to run in northern syria where the battle for the city appears to be in its final throes. for several years the iraqi city of mosul and raca in syria were in the hands of the so-called islamic state then a few months ago the iraqi army managed to liberate mosul. remained under the terrorists' control i asked plans to make it the capital of their future counterfeits. in june troops from the northern kurdish territories began liberating the city gradually putting an end to the terra tree executions on trip pression hundreds of thousands of people in northern syria have been forced to flee the
2:32 pm
fight to liberate iraq could be over soon partly as a result of u.s. military support but it's being left devastated. you could say this man actually got off lightly he survived a booby trap left behind by retreating i asked troops german trauma surgeon michelle vilks treats the wounded he set up an operating room in a kitchen in an apartment building close to the front. door with just. known sounds of and this was clearly caused by an exploding mines the man was hit by many small pieces of shrapnel in the lower body and has several larger ones on his shoulder and head but if you consider that he set off a mine and he's actually doing well. after receiving first aid the wounded man is evacuated the trip to the nearest medical facility will take over two hours on heavily damaged roads there are no functioning hospitals closer to the front.
2:33 pm
the fight against i ask has left a trail of death and destruction but thousands of munitions fired by the u.s. led coalition and the i.a.s. car bombs and mortar attacks have turned rocka and what wasteland. to. bilk has returned to northern syria again and again supporting his colleagues from the kurdish red crescent the battle for rocca is in its final stages but danger is a constant presence i asked fire. ours have been driven out but they mined the city extensively before some days we found a family six people all of them enjoy it too and some of them and those legs on the bodies but the next. i knew offensive against i.a.s. will soon kick off from here in the northern suburbs
2:34 pm
a raga filk and his kurdish colleagues are looking for a safe place to bring the inevitable casualties the doctor complains of no one thinks about the people killed and wounded in the fighting. bothers me most is that the kurds who are expected to last i ass out of here are sticking out their necks for outside interests for example in the interests of the us but far too little is done for the civilians left holding the bag and too little is done for the fighters themselves you could say these people are being used but what's. this kurdish fighters signals us to stay under cover i s nightmares are still hidden in the ruins of the jihadist group self declared capital. there feared by the syrian democratic forces the s.d.f. many of the armed fighters here are young still in their teens. the s.d.f. is a group of individual arab and kurdish allied militias trained by american forces.
2:35 pm
they paid a high price in the war against i am just a pick up truck brings more wounded during an advance they fell victim to another i.a.s. booby trap this medic is a volunteer from sweden like many other volunteers he goes by a kurdish pseudonym he doesn't want to reveal his real name and one crucial aspect the fighting here is different than it was in the iraqi city of mosul earlier this year there seem to be no civilians left in rocket. and three days of shooting at the front we don't see a single one. report said coalition airstrikes killed more. than four hundred people here in august alone but that hasn't been confirmed no that's not true. i can only say if there were that many casualties they would be a huge amount of bodies being pulled out and since we moved together with the codes with the yet again we have seen absolutely no that civilians will likely never know
2:36 pm
the real story. there are many volunteers in the s.d.f. a fighter calling herself given sooty comes from canada the young woman has been battling i.a.s. alongside the kurds for two years now. we don't want to wait until they come to our countries and we come and join. because they are already in this struggle and they've been in this struggle for countless years they've asked the international community to come and help so because of this we are now coming in the coming to the aid. as we leave rock of the streets everywhere are full of civilians fleeing the conflict these come from day year as our. guilt is heading to a refugee camp near the city as the battle for rocco wraps up the fighting has moved here some days a thousand people arrive at the camp looking for food safety and shelter almost all are arabs not kurds they're just trying to get out of the conflict zone away from i
2:37 pm
ask and its fighters who use local women and children as human shields and force the men to fight at the front. the kurdish red crescent runs one of the camps to mobile clinics make vilsack is not just a doctor he's also an activist he doesn't reject ideas expressed by the p.k. case militant leader abdulla urge alon that have a major influence on kurdish self-government in the region. without the kurds says the arab refugees here would be in serious trouble. yesterday i was in a newly built hospital building i saw it before back in february it will open soon i asked bombs things to bits then the kurds build them back up again that's what gives you hope and in their model men and women have equal rights which is something you don't find anywhere else in this region in other words there's a glimmer of hope in the midst of disaster. hope well maybe in
2:38 pm
a limited sense but not a hope for an end to the war in syria this man and his family just managed to escape the fighting he thinks i-s. will be driven from both rucka and day is as or what he doesn't expect things to get much better there will just be new fights between the free syrian army the s.d.f. or the regime everyone wants the country for themselves nobody wants to compromise we won't have peace for a long time to calm. the so-called caliphate proclaimed by i.a.'s is crumbling and will soon fall but for the people of the region peace and security are still a very distant dream. since the civil war began in neighboring syria turkey has taken in around three million refugees and impressive humanitarian achievement and yet turkey's own political system is becoming increasingly autocratic since the attempted coup against president and oman and the
2:39 pm
fifteenth of july two thousand and sixteen more than fifty thousand people have been arrested and more than one hundred fifty thousand have been forced out of their jobs more than one hundred thirty newspapers publishes and broadcasters have been shut down as have more than one thousand non-governmental organizations fear hangs heavy over the country's obscene to bringing its own consequences. here in the by a low district of istanbul it's opening night for a new exhibition at the mass gallery. payne are rangy is nervous because in addition to being the gallery owner she'll be presenting her own art alongside that of three other artists her video installations address the subject of war and expulsion. it's not just people who migrate their songs and instruments move with them as i've shown my film it's about
2:40 pm
a whole culture looking for a new place to settle. paina is originally from the other side of the country from the town of vanity iraqi border and studied architecture over the years the art she produced tended to focus on urban transformation but more recently she has turned her attention to war and migration the latter is something many artists in turkey can relate to. so much there are. the growing violence and pressure in society have inevitably had an impact on us artists in the last two years and especially in the last six months that pressure has prompted a lot of artists to leave and not just artists but also curators authors musicians and other colleagues from the art scene. to talk to the famous.
2:41 pm
a lot of those artists have come to is me on the west coast the third biggest city in turkey and considered the secular stronghold in the country since the one nine hundred seventy s. is near has been run by politicians from left wing non-religious parties and over the past year also izmir has seen its reputation as a refuge for artists and intellectuals grow musicianship yanick came here from istanbul six months ago. he finds life and the people here far more relaxed also works as a communications expert for the tic pirate party he says censorship has increased considerably since the state of emergency was declared in july twenty sixth. a range of theaters and cultural centers have been closed down film festivals have been cancelled and there's been a major clampdown on winning the situation in the used of the country censorship is really bad but self-censorship is worse it used to be parents telling their kids
2:42 pm
what they could or couldn't say now we started to do it by ourselves and that dangerous. ship that takes us out to meet some friends at a cafe. is a documentary filmmaker. mehmet is an actor both men have recently experienced censorship at first hand minutes theater was shot down by decree of the authorities with no recourse to the courts. a nationally they said it was a temporary closure for twenty days but the theater remained shut and we are still waiting for answers to the question of why. there's a lot of intimidation at the moment. as an artist you wonder what did i do. i did nothing wrong it's plain and just. because im was arrested in april while
2:43 pm
filming protests against the controversial referendum that would give president new powers once in police custody he was suddenly charged with insulting the president a criminal offense after three months in detention he was released but will soon have to stand trial. yeah no one in our country where the rule of law applies eunuch spec need to be acquitted but we're living in a time where you can't predict anything especially not when the courts are involved . despite the problems leaving turkey is not really an option for most of the artists. i don't want to go abroad we love our country and want to stay here . i only want to go to germany if it's part of a theater toribio that is. the work i want to do is connected to this country although if conditions get even tougher i might have to think about emigrating. to
2:44 pm
some of the cinema that i'm back in istanbul we accompany pinata the istanbul buy a two month showcase for of the fifty contemporary artists from turkey and abroad this year's event faced international criticism the organizes and the more a good night were accused of being too timid and a political peanuts sees things differently. she's just happy that the biennial is taking place at all. one of the biggest problems we have at the moment is that foreigners no longer want to come to istanbul that includes people from the art scene you used to work with a lot. and then staying away has left a hole so we're really looking forward to seeing our friends from abroad but the biennial. well and so. mick is that. it's
2:45 pm
at times when art is under pressure says payne are that it's role becomes all the more important. believe synagogue and i know we know we're going through difficult times at the moment and that our scope for movement is limited but we will continue to try and keep istanbul's cultural landscape alive by doing all we can. i put it to all go to. what's your opinion will that ever be peace and democracy in the islamic world. we have more about human rights and freedom of speech on our facebook page d w global society. you write to us and don't forget to follow us to. this week our reporters went on the hunt again for tasty snacks and struck gold in
2:46 pm
sweden. stockholm is built on water is certainly no shortage of fish here herring in particular and it's not just the sea eagles which find them tasty but for thirty years now the aftermath family has been running a fast food store here though they have north african roots they serve up typical swedish food here is amazing like our my favorite is always homemade and it's always fresh still in the morning. first the herring is frightened. until it's golden brown. irony is that for this one for me this meal that they always like the you know. only dishes them up when they're really crispy basically that so we were up there is not his then garnish with moss later. and kumba.
2:47 pm
red onions. and homemade cole slaw looks really nice with his crisp red to go with it another very swedish speciality. ever since i was a child love been here i love this taste i read the i really didn't like fish at the beginning but when i tried this one i love it so it i fell in love with this place and i decided to work. and again my my my expertise and my my experience of this plates until i got the place for my father and business is brisk thanks also to his stand central location now sells over a thousand meals on sunny summer days and for sweden it's also very reasonably priced just seventy five swedish kronor or just under eighty euros.
2:48 pm
over the years the stand has built up a regular clientele many here appreciate the stones local food. they are open all we are all year long but i really fair to need it when i see the former also i'd still like a summer off a gnomeo it's a good time. till today i have many customers that come to me and say i have anything this place twenty years ago and they still taste the same and the same concept because we don't change the reason it has been the same with the news for over two three decades and still ongoing and we are not trying to change anything in. syria now miss south america's smallest nation and its ninety percent to rain forest unlike any other country on the planet. but deforestation is on the rise and
2:49 pm
sloths in particular are at risk. our reporter bettina told met a woman dedicating her life to protecting these an egg matic tree dwellers. who are heading to this last century. it's the only one in syria now for these unusual mammals. is there and her fellow slots are being cared for by a team of conservationists the youngest resident is just six weeks old. monique poole runs the slaughter rescue operations of. another emergency call the third this week the caller has found a slot in her garden and she's hoping someone can help her fast. people know that they can call somewhere to do because normally they call the zoom
2:50 pm
previously in the sue didn't to be animals night at the animal protection society but we do so we go and pick up here at. the capitol para maryborough is an hour's drive away it's also the tiny south american countries only major city monique's commitment to the sloss was so strong that she decided to give up her profession as a translator. every day is different monique never knows quite what to expect. she started working with the animals twelve years ago and has gained a lot of experience. ok ok very aggressive extremely aggressive much used to. the man suspects that neighbors had been keeping the three toed sloth as a pet. normally the animals are very peaceful they only hit or scratch when they're frightened. for enough. time for the
2:51 pm
next rescue operation. this time the animal is a lot more easy going there. oh yeah the market sees each visit as an opportunity to educate people people now know that they are protected species and they want to help to protect them sometimes people are so helpful that they take them off the road and bring them to us where we could have put them in the forest increasingly the activist finds herself collecting disoriented or injured animals where strayed into the city. one of the biggest problems is forest clearance. this used to be rain forest now there are plans to build new housing estates covering several hundred square kilometers and that's just one construction project among many but the capital is expanding destroying the sloss natural habitats. in the sanctuary the animals are tended to by
2:52 pm
volunteers. the project is financed entirely from donations. the team sets off in the early morning to collect leaves while they're still crisp and fresh. the sauce are highly specialized browsers feeding almost exclusively on sick leaves invites. these lives are something the slots like a lot it's from a tree so. this disturbed or first come first and they grow very fast and they have a very high protein content not only the leaves but also.
2:53 pm
the fruits as well. feeding sloss is an art in itself. the animals have very delicate digestive systems. the volunteers have to know exactly how much feed to give each one otherwise they can get sick. the really young ones get easily digestible goat's milk. need a lot of time to digest their meals they're extremely slow metabolism is also the reason why the creature moves at such a language pace. mo'nique is worried about christine and has sent for the bet. her claws were cut when she was in captivity and she seems very apathetic. the animals can't hold on to anything without claws or scratch themselves part of their daily routine
2:54 pm
we should be very careful with what to treat and how to treat them but for example . we cannot give that to regularly because it's it could be harmful for them instead of helping them the animals in many ways remain a mystery even for scientists. isa has been living with monique since her birth the animal has become so used to her that it's no longer possible to set her free in the wild. but there are very special animals. they're quite amazing. very laid back as you can see they're very intelligent. and curious to see who is into acting also with us. and they're just amazing to watch they're relaxed maybe there are
2:55 pm
a lot of things i'm not so that's also home fascinated by them. mo'nique doesn't get much time to relax. the house the animals have to be returned to the wild as quickly as possible. the rain forest is just behind the sanctuary the animals feel safe there. for him and he can the team this is always a very special moment. it's always part of the whole process you know getting them crewman garden and letting them go it's just. this is who the beautiful you can see she's climbing with google
2:56 pm
. the team's hard work has paid off so this slough will hopefully find a new home in the treetops and could live to be at least twenty years else. bessel from global street thousand this week thanks for coming along with us. take care and see you soon.
