10:37 pm
a lot can be done to help victims but then the. perspective of how to find back into life how to find back in to their families as was mentioned when we saw the pictures from congo that is just as important as what sort of person is he. he is probably one of the most humble most humane human beings that i know of he is someone who already ate an incredible warmth although you know and you can feel the suffering that he's exposed to and at the same time he turns the suffering into something positive so certainly one of the most inspiring people that i know and his work has made him adamant. to me his work has made him adam is despite all this good work that he's done e.a. has enemies. indeed there have been attempts on his life there are also
10:38 pm
of threats to other people working at the hospital he received our ward right around one in twenty thirteen and since then he's been part of our protection program for threatened lawrence so for instance we've been financing an upgrade of the security at the hospital the panzi hospital and of course unfortunately that is badly needed. now given the dangers you just outlined there by i know if you've spoken with terrorists why does he keep doing this given the dangers facing him and his family i think because he experiences and three day how this changes the lives of the women i think also because that is his way to remain a human being seeing the suffering that he sees to be able to do something about it i mean so of course he would have numerous opportunities to just leave the country

republican side who seem to be wavering one of them is senator susan collins and she has revealed how she will be voting on saturday the facts presented do not mean that president that perfessor ford was not sexually assaulted bad nine or it's some other term but they do have lead me to conclude that the allegations failed to be the more likely than standard therefore i do not believe that these charges can fairly poor bad judge kavanaugh from serving on the court. mr president i will take him for chad's capital. thank you mr. well seven. years in washington welcome stefan so this looks like brant brant to

10:46 pm
surprises amongst today's votes within the. yeah you can say that in the building behind me for weeks now the place and. the place for drama and outright thriller with this confirmation and nomination bret kevin all the surprise was lisa murkowski she came out on the g.o.p. senator lisa murkowski who said no i'm not going to vote for mr cavanaugh for very specific reasons then jeff flake the other senator who had a little bit of wiggle room or where people were not sure what direction he will vote so i am for mr cavanaugh and now susan collins there's that joe manchin the last surprise democrats who is now leaving the fold and is going to go in to vote for mr cavanaugh so it's a slam dunk for the republicans and make no mistake this is a huge win for the president and for the white house right behind me for president trump because now he can go out on the campaign trail and say i told you so i'll
10:47 pm
bring my people through who i nominate and there you go you have it made while protesting outside the status of been chanting november is coming. yes you have a battle cry of the left or of the grooves active groups who are leaning towards democrats or to the left. make no mistake the key word here is women we're living in the times of the me too movement and there are many many many women who are specifically living in urban areas rich in populous those urban areas in america who are really really upset and very very unhappy with what happened here in the last few weeks and that the senate now is apparently deciding for mr brett kavanaugh so there's a lot of people at least in the left on the left and democrats who are fired up who say just wait for november wait for the midterms we're coming after you you're not
10:48 pm
going to be back in the house of representatives or in the senate who say bones in the washington thank you. well the capitol controversy has become a flashpoint in the me too movement against sexual harassment by men in power it's been a year since the movement took off spot explosive allegations against hollywood producer harvey weinstein a year on me too remains a powerful force on social media w. social media editor richard reed hospital welcome let's take a look back dan how did meet to start the made to social media movement that we know which began a year ago but actually made to began in two thousand and six and it was established by an american civil rights activist named to run a book but it wasn't until the harvey weinstein's story broke that the rest of the world really heard about me and that was because of a tweet by the american actress melissa milan she writes here if you've been
10:49 pm
sexually harassed or resulted reply to these tweets reply me to to these twenty fold the women who've been assaulted write me to resist at this we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem and within a day how often million people responded to these tweets and many millions more on facebook too and so then this sort of ignited this movement where women all around the world in all sorts of fields spoke out about men often very powerful men accused of sexually abusive behavior but it wasn't just into time and it was all of all types of industries like the take industry the media industry sports academia and you know we're learning things that we didn't know a year ago and this is all happened in the space of a young couple sorts of conversations in this area talk with us right so a lot of the stories that have come out of me too are of women speaking often for the very first time about their results that have happened many many years ago and this is led to another conversation as to why people whites are long to speak out
10:50 pm

are lots of problems in germany which weren't there before and they're only being addressed by the way i think. you were talking about the clear anti-semitism you can see in the qur'an one. well because there are so many migrants from the region that has this religion it's clear that we're going to see more and more anti semitism in germany. on three people from both from that five process some observers it might seem paradoxical for jewish people to join the h.d. but they have and on sunday they're setting up a formal group in the party was their spokesman is dimitri shorts he's a jew from the former soviet union and he sees if t. is the only party fighting muslim anti-semitism i doubt if you the fortunes of unfortunately many germans have no sense of homeland. this homeland is in danger.
