1:20 pm
oppression. well i was in the jury i totally stand with them because on every aspect when sandal has acted with malice oppression and they've entered india for a lot that's why i sued them in ninety nine i'm still fighting those cases they collected dry as g.'s trauma farmers driving eighty four percent of the three hundred thousand pounds. one in the cotton belt to destress and suicide extracting nearly seventeen billion dollars of a legitimate royalty when they didn't have a practice that case they'd lost in the high court of india and appealing in the supreme court opinion and into being in that case too i think. if you just give us an idea because the real david and goliath situation harrison is especially in this case of the groundskeeper how difficult is it going up

1:23 pm
lanka and round up which is why after the gazes up round up saying we don't phase it out in three years it's the public it's the science of democracy and it's all the biodiversity of the word against one criminal corporation which now is owned by a buyer so it'll be interesting to see how this story floats and it's really good to remember i was part of my department that when the nuremberg trial ok is because by i have come out and still insists that glyphosate is safe despite this ruling and despite the thousands of other similar cases that monsanto is facing in the us if we look at its position in india how widespread is it and if it was to be banned what farmers use in its place. but first of all we need to. diversify running mixed farming we grow nine months of that any of the movement
1:24 pm
that started means nine crops we go grab twelve groups together we go five together because you were drowned that's why our supreme court ordered that roundup ready crops are not legit emitting india jewel years ago when they started to lose out on the bt cotton crop because the bt cotton was no more controlling the border were they illegally introduced roundup ready to cotton illegally illegally to the states uprooted their roundup ready crop this debate is intense they don't tell the farmers what it's about and in the process they will be not just india. at the center of farmer suicides because of the depth of the state on illegitimate royalty collection don't forget that they've already lost it seriously in the high court with india's article three jailed the patent law does
1:25 pm
not allow them to have a patent on c. ok and they seem to think a lot. of what's in that nine months a column or so and i don't know we don't have to many thanks for taking the time to join us for a look at it to the jury in the california courts and thank you for taking this up ok thank you. have a number of people killed in last week's earthquake in indonesia has risen to three hundred and eighty seven the air force has delivered ninety tons of aid to the badly hit island of lombok food medicine tents and blankets will be given out to residents in affected areas almost three hundred ninety thousand people around ten percent of the population are homeless or displaced. lebanon is considering legalizing the cultivation and exportation of marijuana for medical purposes to help revive its economy it may take months before it comes to a vote in parliament and it's the first time that the idea of capitalizing on the underground market has been floated so no one has more from berries it's illegal
1:26 pm
but cannabis is planted almost everywhere in lebanon's northern because region in recent years the government stop destroying the crops because it couldn't provide the impoverished population with alternatives now it is considering legalizing cultivation for medical use but some farmers are concerned it could cut profits. the high supply means it's not. so if the cultivation its will have no value we have. the trade for twenty years and they were against it and now they want to do this to gain political support from the people who are fed up with the politicians . it's a multimillion dollar industry which an international consulting firm says could help levanon struggling economy it would first have to introduce new seedlings that have medical properties a draft bill has been proposed in parliament proponent say the people of the region
1:27 pm
will benefit. and i proposed this law to help farmers they have been the victims they can't openly sell it because it's illegal so dealers benefit most by imposing a price on the farmers and selling the product for higher prices and those dealers have political cover if. it's not the first time the idea has been put forward and it may take months before parliament votes on the bill. the farmers say they have little choice but to grow cannabis in order to survive people are poor and there are little economic opportunities they blame the authorities for neglecting their area the livelihoods of tens of thousands depend on this trade which is controlled by the region's powerful families growing cannabis is cheap and alternative crops can't survive the harsh climate here that is one reason why attempts to eradicate the cultivation after the civil war in the one nine hundred ninety s. failed there are those who believe the government should support this industry. today you have. been all. so it's very important
1:28 pm
for to cultivate such amounts of land where you can get more than forty projects out of it. the best. you can just get it out of that. it's out of that the united nations says lebanon is one of the largest producers and exporters of cannabis in the world politicians now want to cash in on this lucrative underground market but in a country known for corruption some question the government's ability to control and regulate the trade. northern because lebannon. just a few members will have all the weather with rob and then still ahead here on out to sarah and i tell photographer for god shows us the conflict through his eyes. placid ready to travel one hundred fifty million kilometers and brave temperatures of one thousand two greens we look at the private flying into the face of the sun.

1:34 pm
comes during a diplomatic route over this man an american pastor named andrew bronson he was accused of spying for the united states arrested and jailed in the aftermath of the twenty sixteen coup the u.s. denies the charges defended by even jellicoe christians like vice president mike pence pastor andrew bronson is an innocent man. there is no credible evidence against after july nato meeting trump thought he had a deal to secure brunson's release instead brunson was placed under house arrest for his trial continued outraging trump the u.s. responded leveling sanctions against the turkish interior and justice ministers the dispute over the pastor is just part of an escalating feud between trump and. last year americans were outraged as heir to one watch from his embassy in washington
1:35 pm
well his security detail be peaceful protesters later sanctioned by american authorities u.s. support for kurdish fighters in the battle against iceland syria particularly the group known as the y p g has also deeply upset the turks who consider the y p g a terrorist organization the dispute has sent turkey's leader up plummeting losing a third of its value this year president trogs tariffs against turkey only adds to an ongoing trade war with allies like the european union and trading partners like china in two weeks the u.s. will tariff even more chinese goods it is an ass collating trade war now with a new front given the u.s. and turkish leaders both have a reputation for not backing down kimberly help at al-jazeera washington. as the defense assistant professor of history at the american university of iraq he
1:36 pm
joins us via skype from death very much for being with us so the two of us in the new york times and it really underscores as in the long simmering anger by the turks the u.s. for what they see as a lack of appropriate response to the failed coup two years ago. hello laura thanks for having me president out of the new york times op that was a very decent summary as you pointed out of the ongoing disputes and there are many between on her and washington so looking at the particular dispute that is going on today we've got along that demanding for tenneco lands extradition from the u.s. now you've got the u.s. demanding as american pasta front seven being released from detention and sent back but it's size really i'll ask him for the same thing out there that the countries ignore nor an order and processes and systems that exist in their own countries.
1:37 pm
very much so and it's an interesting what you pointed out is extremely interesting because. the reality goes a little deeper than that both presidents trump and the one on the one hand would like the rest of the world think that they're running the show in their country completely on the earth their hand they also play around with this idea that there's rule of law that the court system is independent and they would like. that they would like to the other side to respect that of course turkey has the rule of law turkey the president of iran has worsened much more visibly since. cicerone i started his prime ministry in two thousand and three then the rule of law in the united states has deteriorated since early twenty seventeen i mean there's the long ways to go i suppose for america but it one level that's a that's a very good point i hadn't actually got about that part of the problem is that the
1:38 pm
client the rule of law in both countries and if we look at what can really help get to said that you know and have reports we've got two men who are very unlikely to back down and say just how bad could this get. oh it's as bad as it can get i mean i guess short of an actual war between the two countries. and perhaps turkey pulling out of nato which i don't think is going to happen but the two countries can make things are extremely bad for each other. i'm concerned that we have only seen the surface of the problem and if things continue to deteriorate it would it would get very very bad for both countries my friend. dr nick danforth a senior analyst at the bipartisan policy center in washington tweeted early last week something to the effect that you know the united states why imposing the sanctions on turkey hopes to worsen turkey's economy to get into brunson however
1:39 pm
turkey could sustain its economy tanking without necessarily releasing bronson and i think that that explains really the the the dilemma that the two sides find each other in absolutely and also then present in japanese the whole nato alliance doesn't it because in the meantime you've got tacky looking towards russia something sex trade. indeed however the one big problem for my side turkey is that there's not a lot more that we could sell to russia or buy from russia or. in light of the events of the past couple of years to start receiving millions of more russian tourists in our country for turkey to basically you know sell and i guess use the word tourism as a verb here to tourism it's way out of this crisis more than half of turkey's treat
1:40 pm
and i'm talking about exports here it goes to the european union and north america and the rest of the sort of you know quote unquote western industrial world it's trade with iran russia and china is is is much smaller than that to the extent that turkey could actually grow itself or export itself and host tourists out of this crisis i don't think is very sustainable i don't think that's that's extreme that's very realistic ok. great thanks for joining us there from talking thanks for having me. started on plane has crashed in washington state in the us this video a new change says the ad shortly before it crashed officials at seattle tacoma international airport say an airline employee took without permission last jets scrambled and all through his takeoff his plane no passengers were on board the horizon at q four hundred when it went down on catch on the island. a state of
