this is d.w. news live from poland a powerful storm hits parts of europe causing fatalities and transport chaos i wince of brought down trees blocking roads all of germany's long distance rail services council also on the program. european union under fire for its human rights record human rights watch criticizes the use efforts to keep refugees
out the best price for countries taking a stand against. goes to ohio one of the battleground states at the time that donald trump the u.s. president said as he approaches his first year in office that i still believe the right man in the white house. i'm the slot that made this sixteen year old girl an icon of the palestinian resistance in exclusive interview d.w. asks her father about his hopes for the future. i'm a welcome to the program. the storm pummeling parts of europe has killed at least six people and cause transport to laze for thousands of commuters germany's national railway company has halted all long distance train services flights flight cancellations left thousands of people stranded at ship all airports in the
netherlands one of the country's worst affected. there are some days when nature has the upper hand. in the netherlands lashing winds have caused thousands of euros worth of damage. and it's not just buildings several people have been killed by falling branches the driver of this vehicle was lucky. in scotland drivers were advised to keep off the roads. on the dutch coast some hardy souls find ways to enjoy the onslaught. but the storm has been less fun the faces of stranded travelers. germany's national rail service suspended all long distance trains local services were also affected. and
an understanding of my local train station when i saw a huge branch falling off a tree so i knew or didn't look good and i have listed just as it reached good hours and i blow dried my hair that was a waste of time. i was on my way to university gobert i had a deadline for handing in some work fifteen minutes ago but if you met my professor and i think she'll forgive me for. this while some sit tight this storm elsewhere the cleanup begins it's set to be a mammoth task. to charlotte chelsea tell them who is among the stranded at birth in central station welcome charlotte how bad is it there. yes quite a ride that been dozens of people queuing behind me in the hours announced that long distance trains here in here in germany are now canceled people waiting to try
and find out what their fate would be now i'm being told by people who are in this queue that they're being offered eighty euros that either it's put towards a taxi out of the city or for her to have their reason in fact also a train that's been set up not far from where i'm standing right now on a platform just down there that is meant to accommodate people for the night those who for example can't find a hotel a lot of people are stranded in the city so hotels around this area are starting to get the top off or those who optimistic that they're going to get the first train out in the morning the fact is it that we simply don't know when the trains are going to resume at the moment it's possible that this disruption could continue into the morning because we do know that the storm is heading across east across germany in this direction although it's not meant to directly hit but we know that balance certainly will be caught in the crosshairs of what's turning out to be
a very nasty storm so inconvenience for people but fatalities across germany and the dead across europe. that's quite right we're hearing at least find people have been killed we've had three of those in the netherlands we've also just heard in the last hour or so that one person has been killed according to media reports in this region that is as this storm starts to go across east germany does in in brandenburg not very far from where we are now we are school ready starting to feel the impact of the storm here and violent temperatures dropping winds are rising just outside the train station behind me so we really are getting the sense now that weather could turn very nasty here in this region and the number of injuries and sadly even fatalities could rise as the the night continues and the cancellation of
a long distance train shot that was because of damage to lives or people just for the authorities just not wanting to take the chance. well i don't ship on space and that's the german a rail service that he wanted to cancel all true long distance trains as a precaution we know as well that in large parts of germany regional trains have been canceled as well that is for fear for two drops disruptions alliance hopes there bri falling onto the rails as well there is a high risk due to the very strong winds that are. belting across germany we're hearing in central germany winds have reached up to two hundred kilometers an hour so there is a very real danger being posed by this weather to the rail services and also planes as well we know that a number of planes have been canceled hundreds in fact we things over fear for this incoming weather here in. paris you can see on the horde behind me that regional
trains are still running again though that could could change as the storm comes ever closer to berlin college also. in central station thank you. i was you could imagine there are some of pretty dramatic videos out there being shared on social media especially in the netherlands called last one from d w social social media desk welcome yeah dramatic storm dramatic videos i mean it's a nightmare for travelers as we just heard it's also dangerous anybody that ventured outside this morning especially in the netherlands it was really a dramatic sight and take a look at how powerful that wind is just blowing people like their dolls across this plaza here in the netherlands. one hundred forty kilometer per hour winds and you see that here this bike just just taking off just being blown across the street there and you can see people holding on to that traffic pole just to stay on their
feet so that they don't get dragged away by the storm causing real damage to fill take a look at this this apartment building a broader dam just getting blown right off an incredible to see the power of some of these winds this is also moderate and this is europe's largest ports it really the last of those heavy shipping containers these are metal containers they just come tumbling down i will see it from another angle here all people could really do was just stand back and make sure they were safe and watching film as as the wind just played with these metal containers like they're toybox or something this isn't a mantra this is a coming up next an electronics store. and this sign will just get caught in the wind and come tumbling down a eyewitness there from their apartment capturing that scene authorities in the netherlands they should have issued a code red that means don't go on the roads don't drive if you don't have to and that's why especially big trucks they are like sails in this wind watch again as it just gets alone overy incredible right there the dutch so they're really pros
they're used to bad weather some fun moments here that's a dixie toilet. just going down the street maybe catching up with that tram maybe it missed its train and then i love this a couple guys just come out decide they are they've had enough of this when they're . when to take matters in their own hands and do a little cleanup on their own they're good news traffic in the netherlands slowly being restarted now phil and you know i have to say from watching social media today dutch authorities at the airport regional transit doing a great job keeping people up to date using social media especially twitter but i can also quite dramatic pictures and thanks so much. let's take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world the united nations says violence against aid workers in south sudan's civil war reached a new high last year twenty eight were killed in a country regarded as the world's most dangerous place for aid workers now in its fifth year the civil wars killed tens of thousands plunged parts of the country
into famine fifty two people died when a bus burst into flames in kazakstan five managed to escape happened in the northwest of the country the cause of the blaze has not been determined. salvage crews have been there recovering an airline if it skidded off a runway in northern turkey last week investigators say the boeing seven three seven experienced a sudden power surge in an engine that caused it to swerve down an embankment and just avoided sliding into the black sea no one was injured. but the european union has been heavily criticized for its treatment of migrants and asylum seekers a new human rights watch report highlights e.u. efforts to prevent fresh arrivals in twenty seventeen and criticizes the block full relying on non e.u. countries to stem the flow of people reaching the continent the number of migrants arrivals by sea was down to one hundred fifty thousand by november last year that's
around half the previous year but the report says the mediterranean remained deadly with nearly three thousand people dead or missing by the end by mid november twenty seventh. it also condemns turkey for human rights violations more than one hundred forty journalists are being held in turkish prisons this follows the failed attempt to overthrow the government in twenty sixteen d.-w. has been speaking with a turkish court reporter who's covered many of those journalist trials. breakfast shanahan shushed cohen is a ready checking to see if they have been any more arrests for years the thirty year old has worked as a court reporter covering the trials of her calling. i check if other journalists were imprisoned since the police weren't at my place at five am they could have struck somewhere else. she hasn't lost her sense of humor
without it she says she wouldn't be able to last in her job. she reports from the heavily guarded palace of justice in istanbul the place where freedom of press in turkey came to an end. i would joke there to be she's ok every day when i walk over to this clase i see this building as some kind of a normas monster awaiting me with an ugly grimace it's going to be killed i. cameras are not allowed in the courthouse so from this point we were cord with a hidden cell phone today she attends another case against colleagues of the daily paper hoary at the accusation betraying state secrets a few other reporters are present trials against journalists have become part of a sound routine in turkey the coverage of the trial itself is obstructed by the courts the scenes from real. clay say there's no place for the press the building
is huge but the courtrooms are very small the smallest rooms are always selected for these important trials. no more than twenty to twenty five visitors can fit into them. this time shakun colleagues walk free at least for the time being after two hours attorneys and defendants come out of the courtroom after the trial is postponed for two months. goon sends a copy of the court's decision to have pain. outside in front of the courthouse the lawyer for the journalists describes the repeated postponements of the trial as a tactic to keep the defendants on depression. and her colleagues are watched and filmed by the police the entire time. in returns to the editorial department of her newspaper him her it three of her colleagues are currently in prison and dozens of accusations are pending. the editors fight to
survive and she knows that she could be indicted at any time for her court reporting by joe bible yards in turkey there is no system of law that protects the rights of individuals entire groups in society have been declared enemies and their rights are just taken away so look to you all of. the world would not be aware of this if shannon didn't get up every morning to report from the inside of in stumbles palace of justice. britain's agree to pay sixty one million euros towards a border security in france as migrants continue to gather that try to cross to the u.k. these are live pictures now from the u.k. where you see the prime minister to reach a may you will see the president tomorrow privately by sight he said obvious first visit since being elected last may he said may was there to welcome him or
president macro also confirm the story that had been circulating that britain is to look at what france is to low britain the by a tapestry a sun eleventh century panorama depicting the norman conquest of england the masterpiece depicts a key moment in british history as particular bassinets asprin prepares to leave the relationship between you know if you. join the data because when the beggar to mass in london welcome big lots of brits are welcome the news about the tapestry but there's more at stake about a historic run. well yes i mean france has long been very unhappy with color a with the jungle and they've long demanded that britain should pitch in more and what has been head of the summit announces that that britain will pay more for border security will have helped france effectively
for example with fencing and c.c.t.v. so this is something that france has long demanded and that is now being announced also speculation that reason may will confirm that britain will take more refugees in particular more child refugees from france who are waiting to come to the u.k. so altogether a huge display of friendship between france and the u.k. and of course this has to be seen in the context of prexy that both nations nations want to stress that they still are cooperating even though the u.k. is going to leave the u. in recent also talk of strengthening military ties between britain and france. yes i mean they have announced that they're going to cooperate more than they already do mostly and africa other there is going to be three helicopters supporting a french mission three british helicopters supporting french mission in mali more
humanitarian support for french operations in africa and generally more cooperation where comes to joint fight against terrorism also particular stress on the continent of africa but only. just now britain and france they're acting bilaterally rather than within the umbrella of the. well yes i mean it's been seen as a british charm offensive giving this money to france and indeed we've seen also some criticism by some directed leaning m.p.c. or in the u.k. have said well it's not just a british problem it is also a french from so why are we supporting the french why are we giving all this money generally though it's really something where both countries want to see that they're still supporting each other a lot of jokes have been made about the biotech history that basically it shows
british invasion but the continent by the french the normans and you know there could be a gallic joke to give this back to the u.k. even on loan but others see it as also as president mcconnell's. arm of friendship being extended to the u.k. even though in the brics negotiations he will probably remain quite tough it is interesting that mccaw as is making this gesture where i'm going to medical when it comes to talking to or about britain has always made it clear that anything that happens happens within the context of the e.u. can we expect over the next year if he happens we expect to see more european leaders doing bilateral deals with. well this french and u.k. summit is something that happens regularly and it's nothing particular that they've
just decided to come over to the u.k. it's something that happens and of course brics it is changing let's say maybe the importance of summits like this so far we have seen in that in the context of the negotiations in the you that the e.u. has stayed together. as he has always said so i think there is some more time when we will we will see if britain manages to get certain countries on its i don't think you can interpret this summit just as that massive london thank you unofficial has your business news now starting with good news for us indeed for thank you so much the middle east largest airline emirates is throwing airbus a lot of fun for trouble jim but just a three hundred eighty emirates is by inch want to double decker jets with the option to buy sixteen more air bus had said earlier this week that if it did not close the deal with emirates it would end production of the jet altogether here is
more air bus a three eighty lives to see another day emirates ordered thirty six of the super jumbos for a total of sixteen billion dollars on twitter emirates c.e.o. shake bin saeed al maktoum called the a three eighty a success story and a critical part of future success for his company and united arab emirates the latest deal shows how confidently we're approaching the future and how determined we are to forge ahead dubai wants to keep growing and become a world class destination and aviation. airbus has manufactured and sold more than three hundred of the giant jets over the last ten years emirates has accounted for almost half of those orders. but production lines have been silent recently high fuel and maintenance costs have deterred potential clients leaving air bus without a single order for over two years and into production appeared eminent apple's been
stashing cash abroad for years to avoid higher corporate tax rates at home that u.s. president donald trump's cuts have changed that now the tech giant is bringing back that money team vast in the united states and save on taxes. it could be one of the biggest money transfers in the world take giant apple is moving two hundred fifty two billion dollars from abroad to the u.s. the company is set to face a tax bill of a whopping thirty eight billion dollars sounds like a lot but apple is actually saving money on the transaction a year ago it would have had to pay more than double that amount. apple c.e.o. tim cook says the company is proud to build on its long history of support for the u.s. economy. now the i phone makers planning investments worth billions in the u.s. it will build a new campus and hopes to create twenty thousand jobs. most of the money apple is
moving comes from ireland where corporate tax rates are even lower but efforts by the e.u. to harmonize corporate taxes across the bloc have made the situation uncertain so a recent reduction of u.s. corporate taxes from thirty five to twenty one percent is more attractive. the c.e.o. francis visual. says the carmaker plans to re on toward the u.s. market a p.s.a. group subsidy area would take advantage of a sorceress and of resources for other chairman carmaker opel but he acquired from general motors last year that acquisition gave it access to engineers who designed vehicles for g.m. the relator soul in the u.s. the last the american market two decades ago. and watch more business news later in the show now back to you thanks so much friday saturday marks donald trump's first full year as president of the united
states all this week is looking back and last twelve eventful months ohio was one of the battleground states that had the president his victory last year in a moment we'll have a look at why his presidential study so popular with his core support first the washington bureau chief is wonderful norman francis this from a higher. valley in ohio a longtime democratic stronghold that was once a hobby of the american steel industry but these times are long gone president traum won ohio in twenty sixteen by promising to bring jobs back to the region. twice when bush believes in trump she hosts a talk show on local radio and after she gets off the air she relaxes and the cigar vonage. he earned my respect because of what he wants to do and how he wants to get it done so he's not republican he's
not democrat he's just an american who use the system for his to the presidency. but we have to admit that he lies he doesn't tell that you have to admit he has this he has this thought process work. but the question is. do we all lie also. tracy takes me a long term party fundraiser in youngstown. during. three five for their latest polls show the president's trumps approval rating is at a record low whether people here support him despite the fact that he hasn't made much progress on his legislative agenda. finally for the first time the liberal walk times there's somebody in washington who is determined to change washington that's why people are excited they want to they want someone to go to washington
who can grab that place and shake it because it's become so loaded and so out of control it's been a slow process they're frightened every step of the way but i believe in eventually people are going to realize how organises like christian mckernan is a businessman in youngstown his grandfather started his heating and cooling company in one nine hundred thirty seven here sure christian says he trusts trump because he's all thought an entrepreneur i don't have to agree with certain things that a sitting president may feel i don't have to but i really should just look back and respect the position that's there and allow him to try to do his job. this is the show online and treat your friends john. well good afternoon walk with very few friends here on the economic growth for tax cuts health care that's what counts for
tracey winbush she says she doesn't like f one thing trump tweets or sass but she'll support him as long as he is here to break the system you've got problems. professor fritz brides hoaxes author of the dark sides of empathy he studies cognitive science at indiana university blues and i asked him why don't drug remains popular with his base even when he lies well he's deeply divisive to people right now his approval rate is below forty percent or around forty percent which means like one thought if the country is solidly behind him people can feel empathy for him can identify with this cause and like how he fights speck how he kind of is aggressive and as these emotional outbursts while true thoughts of the country all roughly sixty percent of very critical they don't like his emotional outbursts his uncontrolled behavior irrational decisions his general
madness as they would describe it but the base of the republican party is very solidly behind him. and it's i don't think it's so much the policies prissie that he has to step politically even though there's a lot of republican agendas that the as accomplished tax reform of course the regulation or oil drilling in alaska. that suits people but i think it's small the mind that they can have a late to the one who gains against the balrog prosy against washington d.c. against everyone else they see himself as i mean a lot of his voters see him so themselves as this left out victim and now finally someone speaks their language who communicates in a very plain way so for those people who were once kind of sided with them he continues to be the model of behavior the anchor of right rightness.

agency that provides for millions of palestinian refugees is running out of money this follows the u.s. government's decision to freeze tens of millions of dollars in contributions so let's take a closer look at what's at stake well than five million palestinian refugees are registered aid camps in jordan lebanon syria and garza as well as the west bank the u.n. the united nations relief and works agency is tasked with supporting them the agency's budget of more than a billion dollars is made up almost entirely of donations from u.n. member states united states being its biggest contributor and twenty six think the u.s. gave more than three hundred sixty million dollars about a third of the agency's budget president trump has now i decided to withhold sixty five million dollars the double used as bait to the gaza strip to meet families who depend on this assistance. several generations of refugees and their descendants
live here under one roof in the refugee camp and all are registered with the un refugee agency. it's almost lunch time and mother's a mulatto man is worried about the news that the agency's main donor the united states is withholding funds the family depends on food assistance from the relief agency. and this is. how if they cut aid what will happen to the palestinian people that this aid is really important to us if they create a state for us who might find a solution to the situation that have everything the head the although shoddy her eldest son is working in a clothing store he barely makes a living every other month he picks up the basic food ration for his family he says it covers eighty percent of their needs a manakin that if they reduce their aid if they reduce their support for this humanitarian organization it will be difficult and it will have serious consequences people will suffer from more poverty poverty will create violence and
violence will create an explosion known for a living fish for more than half of the two million people living in gaza are dependent on support from in russia or other agencies. for over a decade the gaza strip has been sealed off by israel and egypt conflict high unemployment and poverty have made life extremely difficult at headquarters and the u.s. decision is being watched very closely there are no immediate consequences for the services but there is no doubt that if it stays this way and if we are not able to find it dition money from other donors and the united states doesn't change its decision we would be in serious trouble here in terms of continuity of our core services the refugee agency provides services that would normally be supplied by a state that runs health clinics and social services to over one point two million registered refugees. harshest critic is the israeli government says the relief
organization perpetuates the refugee problem but people here say that without the little help they get the situation would be even more bleak. at the food distribution center in the shati refugee camp people are bracing themselves for an even harder time every three months they pick up their ration of oil lentils flour and other items. taking it since i got married fifteen years ago. my family my parents have been getting it for the last forty or forty five years without this help there'd be no life in gaza. no one in the stead of next morning if we don't receive our ration we might all just die the next one is due in ten days' time but i went earlier because we don't have any flour at home i have seven children and they need to eat they don't know
if their father has work or not i don't know many here say they feel caught in the political game that's likely to harm vulnerable people the most without a solution to the refugee issue they say the situation is likely to get even more tense. christopher gunness speaks for the un relief and works agency he joins us from jordan's capital amman welcome to you we heard in the report there from the director of. gaza they've been no immediate problem if this policy stays put and the money's not really replaced so when might things become difficult . we are not yet talking in terms of suspension of services because we are determined to honor the mandate which is passed down to us by the members of the general assembly who described all roll as dispensable yes we have the most severe
financial crises in our history but on monday next week we are going to be launching an international a global fundraising campaign to raise the money we are not going to be pessimistic and it's not going to seek to yield to pessimism there's enough pessimism here so we will not yet talk about service reductions or service cuts ok so your going at the moment as i understand it you're funded by member states and then next week you're going to launch this this appeal to the world which is already being asked to give to various disasters around the world as whether syria and and and and the famine ravaged parts of the world to how much when you seek to to how much when seeking donations next week. we it's not just next week this is an on going global campaign it's likely to last months and months and we're not yet
entirely clear about getting away to think it will be something in the region of half a billion and we will be going to stay don't dish and don't miss like the german government the e.u. will be reaching out to non traditional journalism urging markets the brics countries there will also be trying to reach out to foundations to muslim charities and others and i'm very fine to to individual donors they'll be much more of this campaign next week so if i heard you right you're looking you'd be looking for something like half a half a billion in order to plug a sixty five million gap why this disparity it's. well the problem is not so much what's happening this month that is a problem the problem is sustainability of funding so ok let's find the money we need this month yes we clearly have to do that what about next month what about month after what about next year and what about the year after that so for us
sustainability of funding is key and that's why we are going to be launching next monday a very ambitious global campaign we have no other choice we are funded by voluntary contributions we find ourselves with a huge deficit and as the refugee if you will report to excellent report your correspondent said in gaza increased poverty is likely to leave to violence increase pilot is likely to lead to the explosion we are talking about nothing less than regional security in the middle east are humanitarian footprint is vast we educate each day half a million children nightly doctors. every day share over one and a half million food insecurity she will carry the list goes on it does look as though the technology has been a spur to christopher gunness for the un relief and works agency we think we got most of it we thank you for your time thank you. very much. let's
turn now to the legal battles of a teenager who has become the symbol of palestinian resistance and israeli military judge has denied bail to sixteen year old to ahmed a tell me he ordered the she be held until her trial for slapping two israeli soldiers in the west bank a video of the incident has gone viral and brought me to international attention rights groups have called for her release a father has been speaking exclusively to d.w. from ramallah about the case that. this is the video that provoked to social media storm a palestinian girl slapping and kicking and his race soldier. the incident followed what israel says was a stone throwing assault on its troops. the girl is sixteen year old i head to mimi and she's become an icon of the palestinian resistance that this soldier is a symbol for the occupation that has taken our land our country and killed our
people since the december incident our head has been in custody and being charged with twelve counts including assault and incitement now she could face a lengthy jail sentence ahead is from a well known activist family in the west bank and is no stranger to confrontation in two thousand and twelve she was filmed hitting a soldier in ramallah and three years later she was pictured biting another soldier as he tried to arrest her brother her detention has sparked protests at home and around the world with rights groups saying that as a child it is not justified. for many israelis though the teenager is a provocateur. one senior israeli ministers at the detention of our head and her mother must set an example they should finish their lives in prison he said the pictures are harsh i trust that the incident will be investigated and the lessons
will be learned amnesty international says israel currently holds around three hundred fifty palestinian children in detention and that hundreds of mine is a prosecuted every year meanwhile critics of the palestinian say many of these youngsters are being exploited for political propaganda. if anyone guaranteed me they it's an arab country an international body or anyone from my government anyone if anyone guaranteed me that the occupation would be gone in one two three or even five years i would rather teach my daughter. german lawmakers are voted in favor of a lot of the clampdown on anti semitism the new legislation will create the post of anti semitism commissioner in the government for the first time the move was prompted by events of the recent appropriateness to demonstration in germany legislators also blamed the growth of rightwing populism on increasing anti semitism. this. last december mainly
arab protesters chanted slogans intifada until victory and down with israel at a demonstration in berlin it was the burning of the israeli flag at a pro palestinian demonstration near the brandenburg gate right in the heart of the german capital that sparked a fresh debate over the growing anti-semitism in germany. now lawmakers want to act by installing an anti semitism commissioner as recommended by a specially appointed expert group. it would use a belief built on skis are up to this report tells us that most anti-semitic activities crimes that attempts come from right wing extremism. placed sixty minutes was called. but also that a growing number of anti semitic action has immigrated. i'm good bongo
is. by people who come from a region where hatred of israel and anti semitism are widely being cultivated. over. six million european jews were murdered during the nazi era germany special responsibility for jewish life is political consensus speakers from the greens the s.p.d. and the left party more in that anti semitism is not limited to a few extremists when the experiment comes on is there the committee was very clear in its statement that anti semitism is widespread and leads right to the middle of society to unions to church congregations even to the political parties. this entire time. the right wing populist alternative for germany party or a f d however which has openly called for a turnaround in the way germany commemorates world war two says islam is the elephant in the room when it comes to defining the real threat to jewish life busying in
a little bit still we can all see it you call it immigration mr color or people from other cultures and north africa and the middle east several members of parliament say that the f.d.a. itself has an anti semitism problem and that there are even holocaust deniers among the right wing populist the german parliament agreed a resolution against all forms of anti-semitism with a large majority including votes. not with. china. thank you so much new figures show the chinese economy gained some steam last year the first annual increase in seven years gross domestic product grew by sixty nine percent and that exceeded economists forecasts and the government's target. the chinese economy is coming back around thanks in part to robust exports above all to europe and the u.s. investment is also bolstering growth beijing has been spending a lot on infrastructure from roadways and railway networks to housing projects.
the head of china's national statistics office said last year's expansion amounted to stable development. don't look at any generally speaking in the twenty seven economy maintain the stable and solid development of the past exceeding expectations this means more progress toward building a moderately prosperous society we should of course be aware that difficulties and challenges remain and that the improvement of quality and efficiency in production remains a daunting task the chinese government has been working for years on broader structural changes to investment practices the state led expansion policies of past decades are to give way to a more resilient consumer driven investment model buoyant consumer spending is already spring grove a sign that the government is on the right track. as china want to change its image from producing cheap to producing quality when it comes to the
term made in china correspondent daniel cope at the frankfurt stock exchange has more. well that's exactly what china ones they don't want anymore that this image of made in china is still you know being compared with cheap products but china has a problem there are pretty much true economies to production inside of the company and one that is really a growing very fast they were producing a very good product they want to be number one when it comes for example to produce chips for cell phones or computers on the other hand there is still a booming business when it comes to those duplications that china has been accused for for many years and there and then again hurting and harming the image of made in china again. our financial correspondent there daniel cope now in uganda a nonprofit organization is helping previously unemployed women to earn
a living by providing basic half care products that women deliver the products directly to customers and at the same time they're helping to save lives. i don't. know when you i mean i'm a baby is a week. and tonight's heart break here tica who knows the mothers may because history was in their disease. i have circulation problems and i was pale. i turned yellow. she gave me porridge and tablets for my blood they were red and there were lots of them. were worried. i swallowed them and they seen how. return somebody is not a medic or doctor but a health promoter. she works with living goods an american nonprofit organization.
and someone has trained for basic health care provision and goes door to door selling medicine and other health products in how village in central uganda we do not treat all diseases but many. called. and mean money you have to do blood tests first before treating because so many people want to be treated without this. leaving goods gets donation from international aid community to sell health products at subsidized costs the organization provides employment to more than eight hundred health promoters mostly women. and their products reach up to five million ugandans so we dress much as possible to make sure that where as we run out having an impact in the communities where we walk we also make sure that there's a small margin for even goods to make in order for it to me to buy had cost number
two we try to make sure that there's a small profit margin for. our community health promote us such that of the end of the day we dawn. be like the ordinary community health workers who are wounded yes. africa's pharmaceutical industry is worth about thirty five billion dollars the continent has a growing over the counter demand for health products. but many people still cannot access drugs the dose delivery model for subsidized health products could be a game changer both for health care systems and job creation. this is sundance film festival gets underway today in the u.s. state of the uto it's america's largest independent film festival filmmakers from
all over the world and gathering with the latest to projects robin merrill from michael to desk is he well you're here rather than bad. i wish that's what's what's special about this was and i mean it is purely independent films although this is being misconstrued a bit because people saw hollywood very much sort of interested in sundance in the ninety's but that was because of quentin tarantino because his independent film reservoir dogs was probably had as was pop fiction they both went on to be sold to weinstein actually made yeah made made billions it millions if not billions and then hollywood sort of went to sundance to look for the next pulp fiction of fiction i should sense that the fishing. in the last ten years though the organizers of trying to rein in hollywood influence the festival started by the way back in one thousand nine hundred yangtze with local resident robert redford sort
of fronting it as it's an old group chairman and it's been held every year since now in park city on one side of the mountains and in salt lake city on the alba and initially it was there to provide. independent american films but it has actually meanwhile become you know a very international and so blockbuster will look blockbusters but but stories but documentaries as well yeah there's a big part of it is documentaries we're going to have a look at a couple that created quite a buzz first stop a film called a woman captured now this is a real life horror story of a woman in hungary who's trapped in a cot a modern day slavery position and they actually managed to film while this was going on she has to work as a housemaid twenty four seven for someone who she owes a debt we don't know much more than that the director got access to this extraordinary story by paying the family who sort of held her captive some money
and they let her film. you're. going to have to act for the philosophy that there should be this he doesn't use gas you have left the net that i did as a matter of the. soul out of your mind was that i didn't want you know i've met yet and i actually am shocked i. tell you because they have. their own. nephew. was just so. they. don't know who they are and what i would want they want to know that i would land. also in the documentary
section is of fathers and sons by berlin based syrian director tells. the filmmaker took the daring step of posing as a jihad supporting war photographer in order to infiltrate the home of osama and al qaeda affiliated fighter osama is a loving and devoted father and one who wants his sons prepared for jihad through the front of it. the men would get up and move on. to her. start up. the hill to the. us of.
the. banks or some grim watching i suppose what's the purpose of having these documentaries in a in a in a film festival like this is to what is so that they can be distributed around the world yeah i mean they're both those in competition that in the documentary film prize so i mean you said no hollywood but it was going to be that yes he is yes he is a big star of course but actually it's his debut as a director and this is a movie called jante which is about a young man who's passed catches up to him set in the one nine hundred seventy s. in britain and his idris elba the man himself explain will. he was
a popular novel in the eighty's in england at least and resonate with teenagers when they did it just feel like as a direct consequence director this would be something that would be within my compass the things within it that i definitely relate to the music for example. the day as whether the about man like me felt like a natural step is it all right it's a mystery. let's. let's talk about this film the bay roots which is also premiering at sundance and it's causing controversy before it's even been released yeah beirut stars jon hamm as a former diplomat who returns to beirut try and save a friend also stars rosamond. the criticism is that it portrays typical narrative. negative stereotypes of arabs and indeed didn't use any local lebanese act as a short clip of that. we have we have already booked the show it really over with
