problem with flying the imperial colors it takes a look now at the long running feud between south korea and japan. this flag is the thing setting apart south korea and japan for almost the whole past decade you might not see anything wrong with it but for more than a 1000000000 korean and chinese people it's no different to a swastika during the 2nd world war the japanese empire made this image of the banner for atrocities which rival the darkest crimes of adult hitler. the row over the flag largely dates back to 2011 when the nation's football teams
11:13 am
met on the pitch to witness the image being literally waved in their faces and since then so has repeatedly asked tokyo to abandon the symbol the latest being their request for the 2020 olympics which japan rubbished the flag itself is not considered to be a political statement so it is not viewed as a prohibited item so now so has reached out to the international olympic committee directly we emphasized that the use of the rising sun flag during the tokyo lympics would be a direct violation of the olympic spirit promoting world peace and love for humanity and that the international olympic committee should have the tokyo organizing committee prepare strict measures to prevent it from being brought to stadiums just last week tokyo snubbed an international fleet review in south korea over the demands to abandon any hoisting of the controversial image symbols of nazi germany have been outlawed and to this day on solemn occasions berlin speaks of its

to hong kong where pro and anti government protests have erupted in the city state for yet. other weekend the 15th in a row scuffles have broken out between the opposing sides of a shopping center in the city let's take a look. i was. here we believe police are still at the scene dealing with the incident the initial demonstrations were sparked by an extradition bill put forward earlier in the year but quickly grew into a wider pro-democracy movement while it was announced that the bill will be withdrawn protesters still wait for their other demands to be met but includes the investigation into alleged police brutality during rallies on the release of those arrested. now the protests began after the end of march since then activists have been blocking key sites every weekend they have targeted the port subway station
11:17 am
shopping centers and also major roads local as well as foreigners are no avoiding those areas in fact on an additional note the unrest has severely hit hong kong's tourist trade there's been a 40 percent drop in visitors in august compared to the same month. last year. over the past few months the local social unrest particularly the continued vandalism and disruption to the airports and roads has damaged hong kong's image as a safe city the tourism retail and hotel sectors are suffering the most. yet the finance minister we just heard from also noted that hotel occupancy rates dropped to about hough in some places indeed some of the city's busiest districts are not. much another but hong kong indeed this is a split screen of currently on the left what's happening and then on the right
11:18 am
previous years it was bustling was very very busy in hong kong local business owners say they have been hit hard by they don't rest. but it's a night this industry has indeed been he has all of us minds only medium sized travel agency but it still has quite a few 2 groups to handle. the most important thing is that this is no will so we don't want these rights to destroy our society we hope things are resolved as soon as possible and then we can work to try and win back the confidence of tourists to visit. my drivers have made no money for 3 consecutive months and i hope things can be settled as soon as possible so peace can be restored to hong kong then our tourism industry can get back to normal we should promote hong kong and get it back to what it was before so that people feel hong kong is the safest city and the best this nation for tourism. so what's the kobold the program including figures for us water security bubble to the surface after double trouble drops regulations where
11:19 am
i'd like goals near water sources we break that story after the break. what politicians do something to. put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected. so when you want to be president. for something i want to be. actually going to be cross it's like a reasonable people. i'm interested always in the waters about how. things should be. so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race
11:20 am
based on scary dramatic developing only i'm going to resist i don't see it out. that strategy will be successful very critical time to sit down and talk. 20 minutes into the program welcome buck the trumpet ministration has announced the repeal of the clean water rule regulations that control the use of chemicals near water sources the idea is to ease the bureaucratic burden and firms but it's also brought to the surface fears that u.s. water security could become promoted just like most of us donald trump enjoys the

11:22 am
intended to curb water pollution it would be great if farmers didn't have to hire an army of consultants and lawyers just to be able to farm now the new. rules are being criticized as overly vague with the decision about what bodies of water get protected being decided on a case by case basis now the farmers are overjoyed but that feeling is not being shared by people and communities that depend on streams and rivers. even with unsafe. and it's very important to us that now it's not the time to cut back on clean water protections now the american farmers haven't been too keen on donald trump lately due to his trade war with china so perhaps rolling back these clean water regulations will help whenever some point with the agricultural sector regardless environmentalist are up in arms but as many gamblers have said before you can't all. art see new york all right let's get a quick run through know of some of these other headline news or run the world starting in saudi arabia where there are huge fires at 2 major state run oil

a host of strategies used to grow and promote racism or thoughts have been hard to digest in some quarters though the article by just was published in a canadian purging legacy she argues that table mothers should be updated to be more diverse including in schools but it's left a sour taste with many. another nail in the caffein of the word racism having any meaning left whatsoever shame of colonisation food activist stick a fork in it's we're done no wait not a fork that's racist culture isn't a race when will people learn the difference between culture and race. you know we all have different cultural norms and certainly if when you come from a certain from a certain country there are variations of customs depend on where you live children they learn their customs and culture a city in that their own table so when they travel someplace else especially young
