is expected to appear in parliament on wednesday to answer questions on his administration's performance it's been announced that u.s. republican senator john mccain will lie in state at capitol hill until a memorial service next saturday he'll be buried the following day tribute to been pouring in for the eighty one year old who died after a battle with brain cancer came as a prominent critic of u.s. president donald trump and mccain's family has said he did not want trump to attend his funeral rob reynolds has more. flags were lowered over the capitol building and the white house as tributes to senator john mccain flowed in but there was no praise for mccain's long career in military and public service from the current occupant of the oval office president donald trump issued a terse two sentence tweet my deepest sympathy and respect go out to the family of senator john mccain our hearts and prayers are with you former presidents were more
6:11 am
fulsome in their praise with a remarkable. he was. barack obama's statement said in part few have been tested the way john once was or required to show the courage he once did that was a reference to the more than five years of harsh treatment mccain endured as a prisoner of war in north vietnam mccain senate colleagues from both parties were also speaking hours republicans jeff flake he would quickly forgive and move on and to see the good in his opponents is something that particularly these days we can do is a lot more of democratic senate minority leader chuck schumer i am morning america's morning the world is mourning the loss of one of the truly great man recent decades former presidential candidate hillary clinton alluded to mccain's frequent
6:12 am
criticism of trump's foreign policy fights with allies if we abandon the ideal that we have stood for around the globe if we turn our back on the have human rights and have a kind of future we want to forage for our children grandchildren. we will be giving up on what he fought for what he was imprisoned for what he stood for mccain's body will lie in state in the ornate rotunda beneath the capitol dome an honor accorded to only thirty public figures in u.s. history members of the public will have an opportunity to file past his casket to show their respects mccain reportedly planned his own funeral which will be held at the washington national cathedral the eulogies will be delivered by obama and by bush both men who were once mccain's political opponents pointedly president trump
6:13 am
has not been asked to attend robert oulds al jazeera washington. mourn his legacy republican strategist to evan secret joins me via skype from new york thank you very much for being with us and just i want to go back to the period of when he was a prisoner of war how do you think that experience shaped him. i think it made him realize that there is a great deal of evil in this world and that sometimes you have to put yourself second to the greater interests of the nation because the north vietnamese offered to give john mccain in an early release when they found out that he was the son of a four star admiral and the grandson of one is well and he said no because there were others there who weren't as fortunate as him who were there much longer and he said he will not go until all those others will leave and he spent five plus years in the hanoi hilton being tortured daily beaten to the point that he couldn't even
6:14 am
lift his arms above his head what about his in his career. career in the senate what would you say the highlights of that. i think that it's multiple things there are the legislative highlights for mccain feingold campaign finance reform and effect increasing defense spending to just the highlights of how he shaped and viewed the senate this was a man who believed that the senate was an independent institution that should be but shock and balance on the presidents of the united states be they republican or democrat and we have seen america shift in both chambers of congress the senate and the house to become much more subservient to whichever person is in the white house if they happen to be in your own party and the president. would be to president obama bush clinton or now trauma would always find john mccain being a thorn in their side but perhaps his most important legacy for america was what he did in the early ninety's with then senator john kerry john kerry and john mccain
6:15 am
were two very different spectrums of the vietnam war john kerry protested the separately whereas john mccain supported it and he fought and he bled for it and he was scarred by it as we saw by his treatment over five years and we still but they came together to try and normalize relations with north vietnam and to find out if there were any more american soldiers who were missing or in action or prisoners of war and because they did that i think they helped to heal the nation and the scars of vietnam which had lasted for nearly three decades at that point i mean you talk about the healing of the nation and i suppose now that the it seems that there is an increasing division is there any of that i mean do you think that with that spirit of bipartisan and to prize actually dies is that on a front on the bipartisan front. well as we've you have heard john mccain planned
6:16 am
his own funeral as part of that he asked former presidents bush and obama to eulogize him and i think that's his way of saying it's time to come back together we've become a much more hyper partisan climate where we talk about tearing one another down more than what we can do together and i think john mccain is telling america that we need to listen to our better angels as opposed to our inner demons and really work together to make the country work and it's not doing that at this point we have a president who had been gauges and specialized and attacking in often craft fic and inappropriate terms institutions and individuals he feels that as we are in a grievance period because of dol trop and john mccain despised that because that isn't what america is and at the end of the day john mccain is one of the very few men and women who have ever lived in the history of our nation who represented an america what we want to be and what we are we are an imperfect nation but always

6:21 am
wrapped up a two day trip there. voting has ended in colombia's referendum on tough anti corruption and also if it passes it could see the salaries of congress members come out and a change in the way contracts are awarded. of one the senate speak to your he's the director of the colombian research group the conflict analysis resource center he's on skype from bogota for us thank you for being with us so just to remind us what the scale of a corruption problem is in colombia well it's very serious i mean there is different from more corruption here that comes from contracts but i will say that corruption that will lead to a good system that has to do with boxer in each the way that it is almost me mr to be divided were the positions of power including the uk is the most serious type of corruption and these consultations these public consultation
6:22 am
a sort of referendum will work it's dry to that. and how likely is it to pass. well very unlikely i have to say that the trash roll it requires sixty percent of the electoral roll to vote in favor or against the seven questions in order to pass each one of them i need it will be there it difficult for each of the question has to reach and two pies that threshold nevertheless is the first time that we have these type of. bloke receives type of participatory democracy put forward to the electorate and that in itself is an advancement i mean if they if they did pass their getting and have the right measures to make a difference to the level of corruption in colombia well several of them will increase their oversight and transparency and definitely will. closer to the people all decisions and the and the itself the political leaders. i
6:23 am
think it will be very positive for reducing corruption and as i say it will increase transparency and will be will open up the political system one of the questions for example he meet to three terms that those that are elected by popular vote will be able to hold off and that would open up the political system the participation of those that are. close to that political system or two offices and you think there was enough emphasis from the government on actually getting people to go after vote in this in this referendum or don't you think that it was essentially the politicians not wanting to get not want to paint backing it because attention it it damaged their their chances. in general the political system is not in favor of the vote and i have to say that the government what has
6:24 am
been quite limited in its campaigning for the consultation sat and it was sold so late in putting forward or doing the meter's the new government or you want to get to try to bring people to the vote. that would be one of the reasons why it is very unlikely that these questions are going to be approved today. were. a surprise vote ok thank you very much for having us on our air. there's been a mass show of support in costa rica of people who fled the political crisis in neighboring nicaragua thousands of people turned out in a demonstration in the capital san jose backing the twenty three thousand nicaraguans who crossed the border since april becomes a week after anti immigrant violence in which forty four people were arrested and homemade bombs seized the costa rican government to set up

china used to recycle more than half the world's dirty plastics but the country ended that practice earlier this year many believe the policy shift was driven by this unflattering documentary depicting poor chinese and sorting the waste but the plastics problem goes way beyond china they are there are bigger problem i would say longer term systemic problem in the plazas world is the norm it's not a plastics that don't make their way in or cycling or that because of their resin type or the way it's actually manufactured are not recyclable in today's you know recycling industry. earlier this year a huge mass of that ocean plastic waste washed up ashore on a beach in the dominican republic at the current rate by twenty fifty the oceans will contain more plastic than fish according to the world economic form whether it
