suspects come from britain pakistan and ecuador. tens of thousands of women in britain have marched together to create a living artwork to celebrate one hundred years since they won the right to vote the suffragette movement campaigned for decades for women's democratic rights using protest and direct action and sunday's event was a reminder of modern day struggles as named barbara reports. a river of green white and voyage. the first letters of those colors used by the suffragette movement g w v signifying give women the vote one hundred years ago some british women finally got it and these women are remembering their struggle with a unique march in the u.k. to national capitals edinburgh cardiff belfast and here in london community groups have been working with professional artists to create some are you couching banners
4:14 am
we commissioned a hundred artists each to work with a group that could be women imprisoned kids and schools. muslim women's federation south bank sisters lots of different people you see behind me clean break her prison survivors of domestic violence so lots and lots of different organizations that we can rate a particular artist to go into back to work with them to make a banner in a series of workshops they also explore the history of the suffragettes as well as the later fight for things like access to birth control these women were extremely radical women who were prepared to act deeds not words and make decisions that perhaps nowadays you might like pretty cool off. many of the themes are obvious. others less so and help wait time to take workshops making the food coming up with the parents the teacher coming up with. a ten to idea. is that the first
4:15 am
thing it defies description we're hoping because i think if if things can become surprise we call it controls the march is also so homemade efforts and some definitely too young to vote to belong to a women together doing something together. and try to do something with my daughter. to take. the women marching who have come from all over england and the band as they've made highlight a whole range of issues but what they're all doing is looking back to the achievements of the suffragettes looking forward to a more equal future. and they're hoping the younger generations will be as bold as those who came before them. turkey is a life with the sound the music they stumble music festival is hosting around five hundred artists including young classical musicians who are often forced abroad
4:16 am
because of a lack of financial support from the government saying i'm got reports. as well as some of the world's most renowned classical musicians young talent is taking to the stage all over. including twenty two year old. but talent she says needs to be polished with practice. fingers paid the price and as is often with artists her rewards have little to do with money. that art is expensive no one produces hops in turkey my instrument cost twenty thousand euros at least these are all beyond my parents' budget i am dependent on funds. it is much the same story with her fellow musicians was asked to remember the instrument by by its case its bow all a very expensive for us considering the euro is very high in turkey he said all
4:17 am
mark being a musician is all about what's in your heart in a way but besides education you must have financial support. classical music is not as popular in turkey as many other countries private institutions and companies tend to fund artists and events through what are called social responsibility budgets. this festival liz's with sponsors to support young talent while ensuring their educational needs are met. here in the sun not doing arts and music together pushes us to think collectively about the world's problems and act together i believe music has really indirectly for peace the soul of some concert tickets will help fourteen girls who are studying music of rote. yank fame male musicians friend i will play the maintenance of my cello and i will buy new hair from my bow so it's
4:18 am
a amazing help for me these young stars are already known outside turkey but that's home it is difficult for classical musicians to make a name for themselves and the government doesn't have an incentive or scholarship for special art students. but most of these girls agree they're promoting their country with their talents and the government should recognise that and provide more help seen aamco solo al-jazeera stumble. by the more to say on our website just click on al-jazeera dot com. these are the top stories on al-jazeera the leaders of the u.s. and north korea have arrived in singapore for tuesday's historic summit trump and kim jong un are now staying in separate hotels far from each other trying to decide

4:22 am
belly is always nice to us whether she takes our home or not we accept this type of event. you can rule. bloopers. for many years people have been fleeing eritrea. a steady stream crossed the border into sudan but unable or unwilling to stay there they move on. many end up in europe. others have made it across the sinai peninsula and managed to get into israel. today approximately forty thousand people from africa have made it into the country. having rejected most of their asylum applications
4:23 am
the israeli government now wants them out a new program has been announced except deportations to a third country such as rwanda or uganda or end up in an israeli prison. it's here in pockets of relatively deprived southern television but thousands of africans have made their home over recent years we'll hear from some of those who now stand to lose that here until trial just. tekhelet and eden have lived in tel aviv for about ten years now both of them stayed the reason they fled eritrea was to escape the military it's a familiar story. according to a united nations investigation based on interviews with five hundred refugees around the world the military is in fact
4:24 am
a recruitment tool for forced labor tracing its role to the country's long running conflict with its neighbor if the o.p.o. . eritrea gained formal independence from ethiopia in one nine hundred ninety three after a thirty year long armed struggle but since then the situation along the border has remained tense with frequent violence cautions. as a result the military here please the central organizing role but beyond defending the country it has become an instrument of oppression according to retrain refugees young men are forced to serve for many years but not just to execute military duties the issues relating to eritrea as military and slash national service programs include their arbitrary and indefinite duration the use of conscripts as forced labor including manual labor very inhumane conditions of service rape
4:25 am
and torture often associated with service and their devastating impact on family life and freedom of choice for the individuals. overall the un investigators concluded that quote the commission has reasonable grounds to believe that crimes against humanity namely enslavement imprisonment in force disappearance torture other inhumanities persecution rape and murder have been committed in eritrea since one nine hundred ninety one. it's also recommended referring the situation to the prosecutor of the international criminal court. and natural way out of the country is north to sudan but that country is hardly a long term solution. not too far away israel and many managed to cross into the country before israel decided to build
4:26 am
a barbed fence along its border with egypt in the sinai peninsula. but now the government here says it's time for the refugees to go. or come here to live in st garden and southern tel aviv it's a park here where years ago many of the asylum seekers recently brought on a bus and left and now it's become something of a central point for this community. tekhelet came here in two thousand and six for a while he worked in a restaurant. he works for an engine advocating on behalf of the african community here. he didn't came here ten years ago with her husband and two kids since then she has given birth to a daughter who is now in kindergarten she also works for an ngo let's start at the beginning of your story how and why did you leave eritrea and how did you end up here in israel when i was a nurse there was an athlete and there was also
4:27 am
a student without any reason there are three of them between me and force and this is army and i trained as a soldier and then ask them to give me a chance to return back to my studies and my training to become one of late it was an athlete with a sense runner and they refuse it me that it may claim go back to where it came from and as a point i left my country because i become hopeless in my own country i've become dreamless in my own country and it's my country on some consequence. a way to cross the border and run because me my country's military border guard this and they ask me where i'm going and i told them i'm leaving my country because of all this stuff that happened to me and they asked me what was the prison i saw them in a prison what's it like so i can't deal with prison and a start drawing away from them. three times to kill me. had been
4:28 am
done from sudden success didn't number two thousand and seven and the same thing happened in sudan this is government starting to in two hundred over there kind of sensical together and i ran away from that and they came to egypt cairo and the same thing happened cairo so the only place is was near to me was israel so i came to israel on the end of stalin seven through. commenting on israel's new policy prime minister netanyahu had this to say on january twenty first we are taking actions against illegal immigrants who came here for work purposes israel will continue to be a shelter for true refugees and will eject illegal infiltrators now the israeli government's argument in all of this is that the vast majority of the eritrean sudanese asylum seekers are not asylum seekers it calls them infiltrators and
4:29 am
people who are here for economic reasons i mean how would you respond to that what what would happen do you think if you went back to eritrea first of all they never took our us and claim properly according to international law so they have no reason to what are you going to occur for in truth rather than to traitors right because they never give us a chance even some is there are setting up the question systematically they brought us to some of our claim even those who are climate similar again we didn't get it and so for that sometimes they reject automatically out of fun for no reason without checking their claim so it is completely a lie it's not completely right why they're sane especially in the world more than ninety per cent of eritrean get accepted as refugees in the sudan is are the same number of get accepted as refugees so why is there is zero prince's almost zero point. one person to get upset if it's almost there is ten people who get up to the refuges you see in the last ten years so you can understand it's completely
4:30 am
baseless it completely completely lie and in your own personal case what are the stakes i mean you you left because you deserve the army he was shot at crossing the border if you were simply to go home you obviously view yourself as an asylum seeker if you were to go there now what would happen to first of all if my country because they were in the set up my country so if i were about my country i am sure there would be imprisonment because there was a border illegally and i think we're going to terrorize them and they're going to it's trial so if i work my country but not just me every chance i look to the country would be in danger because we know now when we were in our country we know nothing about it. but you know we now everything what do you mean my country and to our people for even the military also played a critical role in her and her husband's decision to leave eritrea ten years ago.
4:31 am
so why did you leave what force you out of every trade because what is a man all the man that free from eritrea or as most of them was in that a me and limited that. even if the man is free from the army the government came they took all the addresses the family especially for wife was a kid s. i don't want to be. in prison because every time prison is the prison like his underground prison it is so difficult you can eat one time in a day it is sleep you can sleep on the floor this is your own personal experience when your husband fled the armenia you were imprisoned for tumultuous for two months i was with my delta now my daughter now is eleven years old as that time she was like one in the house and so you both ended up with you and your husband and your two children and that up in sudan in
4:32 am
a refugee. what made you decide to come here because there is no. so that is also the same situation i like at it because if you sit in the fija come that is a smuggler as maybe they kidnapped the deal maybe they can now but cicadas to get the money. when i so when i listen some see it happen for someone my ring my husband who told me let's try to leave to get a safe place and then he decided to send me to israel and i came. they said and so you you're here you've been here for nearly a decade and you've been trying you say to apply for asylum. what's happened how far is your asylum application go i cried for five days. till i play that silent.
4:33 am
feagin status but i didn't get any chance to in time because that is a lot of people and has immigration they don't want to meet. at a seedy asylum. because they decide to deport us a little one that if someone applies at a fee to status it is. to save us from the deportation when you first arrived in israel nine years ago you didn't apply britain or i don't know no one contacted me i don't know because before i was in my country i don't know how to do about the fetus i don't out up like. the old man and he came in to say hey we're just. going around having even used the phone. to get used to go on being a weekend go through one day. and what about. environment here in
4:34 am
southern tel aviv how do you get along with local people here are the major problems all of that if you just had here and they suffer from the people there never miss some neighbors that blame. you no more. go back off. shoot like. i don't get abodes us. to eat the. chocolate and eat dinner and their fellow refugees are not fighting for their position and moan all we came to demonstrate against the book dushan. we disagree with. the decision of our government especially as jews. we are people off refugees asylum seekers. for two thousand years and we are here to say. now that we are in
4:35 am
a sovereign state we have to deal with other asylum seekers worldwide. in the last few weeks and months we've seen a real groundswell of israeli voices kind of advocating on your behalf we've seen holocaust survivors rushing to the government people even talking about sheltering people in homes and frank to prevent them from being deported what's that been like to witness from your perspective actually it is quite interesting for me this is not into like it's enough like surprise because the last ten years i know these people are fighting with me but their voices never hear in the media as in they keep fighting for my father and for the future for the picture of the country and the for the value of the country. it's not a deuce of value even like was a gun i mean. protecting the image of the country it's not just just about me it's
4:36 am
about as a country because the current government is very working very hard to destroy some secret meeting in there to destroy the image of the country so the last ten years not the government system there's the people because my savior because my family become part of me for the last ten years i survived because of the people and the the public but this is them is completely made to quote to break me and met just to kick me out of the country and take me down. many eritreans and others have already been transferred out of the country but the circumstances are murky and hard to verify as a result there is a lot of speculation. a common story is that refugees are sent on to cover to rwanda or uganda with some cash and that the governments dare look the other way possibly in a deal with israel in the meantime refugees are staying in an open detention center
4:37 am
here in israel called toilet they are free to leave during the day but have to return by night. the policy that is being now advanced by the prison or a third country which is widely thought to be a wonder there are some arguments that perhaps uganda could be involved as well that policy when it comes to that choice if you were presented with that choice personally prison or forced deportation back to an african country which is not your own what choice would you make it is better for me to see your side is what is waiting for me in rwanda already one hundred there is no system created or waiting for me to give me a shelter or a security you have to understand that there is no system at all for me or for us i'm sick of community and this country's because we know in the last two years those people who are forced to what's countries where smugglers to other countries they were victims of months they were victims of human trafficking they didn't say
4:38 am
they did in maternity they did in libya instead of the soul so for me it's like i can do that i can't go to this country because i know i'm asking protection in israel i never ask protection and one or uganda and secondly it's a good thing for me to say to level up my home which means it's better for me to stay in prison than to go to another one are you worried about your physical safety in either of those two countries or what is your main concern about being sent to one of those places most of them as a person i have a dream to grow and to become him being after here for ten years i start from scratch. actually you know the longer you know the culture and of the country i can survive now but there push me to start from scratch again so i'm human being and do i need to create my future it's all from start point again to go back to
4:39 am
slanders i just said so for my physical protection i'm not perfect at all in this country because as we saw last you for use a lot of people who are in the courtroom would so i don't be killed over how people are feeling at the moment how seriously are people taking this threat that is coming from the israeli government that they're going to be forcibly deported to a country which is and as i think i was seeing the menace i wear it now because. they know it when it will happen. and there was also a lot of men that now in holland they get rejected a lot as there is the detention center in so far most of his i guess to get the answer for that is and so you think that this is going to target single men in particular and that they are under very realistic threat of imminent deportation. and you yourself you have a family you have three children one of them will was born here what is it been
4:40 am
like bringing them up in this environment when there is a lot of uncertainty and fear about what might happen what's it been like for the kids i don't know if it will behappen far as i'm soft as a kid is i'm not going to the one that i would i would say is again in prison it's better to sit in prison that's that's your view yeah because africa is africa is the same situation and your children i mean are very conscious of what's happening yes or no what is happening. i want to visit my doctor she's talking about the lunda she said what is the one. i don't think there were one. she said why the government of israel decided to do like this say home on bank. says she said. why the government gave me to. two
4:41 am
to chose a country like the kind. i told her that is not under his chase she said i don't think it'll go under because i don't know the language i don't know the country is told to me if you need to board cause. everything i have a question tell me because we have a family in it and that it is better to do like the same done decide to. let your eleven year old and you have a younger daughter as well in kindergarten i mean what was the situation for her. she done about that prosthesis is almost small but it is difficult because they could have. like feeding in that or that of them so it's like later you can go to inheritance or you can just for a fijian laser is no any sally kids learn together in the thing that about them
4:42 am
it is also until one eleven two pm there is no longer any chance to put her hair like after school i pay for her. until i came to tech and your own situation i mean if if you found yourself on a plane heading to rwanda what would that mean for you what would the prospect of life. be like for you i'm not going to london i would sit in the in the prison no matter how many lonely it takes. why is that what are you worried about that would happen because that one day is the same like i don't africa if i go to one. they can pick all the papers document to say no and i know that entire part of us i'm afraid. to get like a slave trade like it does that happen in libya i and i don't want do you think that the israeli government is really going to do this or do you think they're just
4:43 am
trying to scare people. maybe they need to scare people because. you can do like buy for us if somebody scary if they will put in unlimited prison. maybe someone they decide to walk the israeli government says that's the vast majority of people here who come from sudan eritrea the african infiltrators as they call them are here for economic reasons they have to get better jobs to get a better lifestyle i mean how do you is not it is not it is wrong it is not. for the job because when i was in eritrea i was working as a bank accounting the big credit. i did i don't want to walk in cleaning but the walk in bank or better to continue my education
4:44 am
but i don't know if his. and your young daughter finally who is who was born here do you think that she has a future in this country there is no future for her. even she is born here that isn't a future because she's from medicare and so you're your aspiration your hope is to stay here and feel whole family to stay and live in israel permanently what is your my hope is. i don't know why my hope is if i get a chance i want them on the side because i can't clinton kind of this. is not. if i get the channels i'm trying to get it than this and that if i get i'm so happy. i'll continue.
4:45 am
tekhelet the only long term solution points back to retrain. he wants nothing more than to return to what he still calls his country but first the situation there has to change. and your own future of the next few years i mean what do you think what do you hope is going to happen to you. i believe in god. to give me and with future and those who are the person i know i have to fight and for car each and. police of the government why me looks like you're on so i have to become stronger and to be safe they have something to happen.
