2:15 am
address the problem. so what we're saying is as countries rise up the development index cancer becomes one of those diseases that is more prevalent and the absence of early detection systems so particularly screening for bell breast and cervical cancers and inherently the infrastructure to provide surgery right therapy and came with therapy manes that most people are diagnosed late and therefore don so we see the biggest. difference in something like childhood cancer where in a developed country the survival is between eighty and ninety percent and in the least developed parts of the world survival is less than twenty percent and those those differences are just not acceptable we say some political will around things like tobacco control and that's a really important strategy but cancer treatments acing as being too expensive and

2:21 am
back in half an hour right now it's inside story. one year after a controversial referendum on capital on secession there are new governments in both madrid and barcelona but how much has really changed on both sides this is inside story. hello and welcome to the program i'm hemorrhaging june last year spain's government
2:22 am
insisted that catalonia as vote for secession was illegal and sent paramilitary police to stop it when the caught a lot of regional parliament declared independence a few weeks later madrid imposed central rule some cuddle on leaders fled to exile others are in prison spain now has a new prime minister but most of the issues raised by last year's vote remain unresolved and again this weekend there were huge crowds of protesters on the streets of barcelona we'll bring in our guests in a moment but first this report from paul chatterjee. right police confronted hundreds of pro independence protesters at the main door of the catalan polman in barcelona late into the night. these demonstrations fall to marched up police say a truck of more than one hundred eighty thousand people earlier in the day tens of thousands marked the first anniversary of the failed bid for secession from spain bringing parts of their wealthy northeastern region home to seven and a half million people to
2:23 am
a standstill and i know it was today. it has already been a year from october first we voted regardless of the. all the obstacles imposed by a fascist oppressive government that did nothing but assault innocent people who want only with a ballot in hand today we go out to claim that we defeated the spanish state by being able to hold and when a referendum spain's constitutional court declared last year's referendum illegal on the day of the referendum spanish riot police stormed polling stations across the region and comment down on protesters hundreds of people were injured the violent crackdown brought international condemnation the cattle and assembly officially declared independence on october twenty seventh but it was not internationally recognized the spanish government dissolved catalonia as parliament and imposed direct rule. a year on pro independence catalans want their declaration of independence to be recognized there also demanding the
2:24 am
release of jailed government ministers and civic organization leaders who are at the helm of the failed secession drive but if it was it was important to do something today because throughout the sea it was not made much progress the catalan government hasn't done much to tend to make the catalan republic or to make an illegal referendum. madrid's direct rule of catalonia ended in june when petro sanchez replaced prime minister marianna wholly in a vote of no confidence sanchez is against independence but is approaches softer than that of his predecessor his government agreed to move jill carroll and politicians out of prisons in madrid to ones in catalonia this is below if you're in the real election at petrus and change is actually good news because he has a softer approach is open to dialogue but it's not clear if he has specific political objectives or he can result situation because he just doesn't have a parliamentary majority. the promise of talks between the spanish and catalan
2:25 am
leaders has yet to come to fruition so for these demonstrators the fight for independence remains in the hands of the people. al-jazeera. all right let's bring in our guests in barcelona jordan villanova he's the national secretary with the cattle on national assembly that's a grassroots organization supporting catalan independence in madrid tony rode on a member of parliament with the c.e.o. that honest party meaning the citizens party and in london gabriel government a researcher with kings college in london who focuses on conflict and nationalism gentlemen welcome to you all gabriel let me start with you how much or how little has changed in spain with regard to this issue in the past twelve months well the house changes a great amount actually we've got changes in both governments we had a very difficult aftermath after the referendum with all the central government
2:26 am
taking power of the cotton institutions so yeah it has been very difficult yeah trying to both. both act actually finding in a way to keep their own political political agendas i think we are in a kind of a deadlock right now. jordi from your perspective what does it say that one year on there with these large demonstrations and that there were even some clashes that happened. well the issue here is that there's a lot of unrest here in catalonia because people are extremely unhappy with how things have turned out especially after the first of october twenty seventh. the people who protested yesterday throughout the day because it wasn't just the main the main stray ssion in the evening yesterday it was also students demonstrations during the day several demonstrations from catalonia so this is
2:27 am
a general feeling of. really very serious an unhappiness with with. what's gone on the issue here of course is that after the first of october and the. the suspension of home rule. the government has been pretty much ham strung by. agrees with continuing limitations on the on the budgets without being able to carry on normal government besides the fact that. the although it's an illegal referendum. you know the respect for the opinion of how off the population at least i mean we don't really know. whether it's forty seven percent or fifty two percent or how many there are until
2:28 am
we have a referendum and madrid is not helping at all i mean the new government in madrid was brought about in fact with the votes of caplin separatists within the spanish congress in the hopes that something could come. but it's apparent that madrid's. hamstrung as well the madrid government is being limited by both feel the loss and the popular party who are shifting right because they're being pressured by vox which is on the extreme right bronte which is bringing cases prosecutions i guess the the parliamentarians who are in prison and the civically this so the situation really is in that locus the of a guest said tony if you could pick up a little bit on what jordy was saying there he was talking about new governments now being in place does that go anywhere towards stopping this political deadlock
2:29 am
or is this going to continue for some time. but look i do think that the main problem we have. got the money at national used to come actually government has now led by a man called the thought i was the president simply does not respect the rally the views that you have been given money and and that's the name of the problem these guy has written in the past that. people and those of these if we nationalism have some sort of d.n.a. problems. he has got an openly supremacies people though are and those are their mom actually it happens that we get along and i will make that group because i am also i got to learn this by nationally like. we are in we have got four regional elections over the last six seven years.
2:30 am
got celestially them has never got more than fifty percent of the vote right so they have had their way to express themselves obviously and the constitution the spanish proposition like any other european constitution does not prevent mag's their right of self-determination in their constitution it simply doesn't exist only forcing to them everything in the world. and but they've got their i mean you can change a constitutional right to a referendum but they may be happy we're going to get a say as to express themselves for four hundred times they then get the majority but the him they decided to go ahead and declare unilateral the independence from catalonia on the same rights and these. is basically subverting the spanish constitution it's something extremely extremely great something so extremely
2:31 am
worried that my rights as a catalan see things in the glass of the spanish and wants to remain you to the end where brutally violated by the decision of the catalan parliament without provision by your. to go ahead with these lawsuits would go back to the constitution and created a couple hundred dollars of the imaginary and the democratic support and that was not approved through the democratic process right and this referendum they need i reject violence i think there were terrible images that they things are fairly managed. by hollywood but it's not true voice of anything you were both three four times in that referendum was organized by the a.n.c. and putting the band in cyprus ninety percent of those facts are basing both is that the s. and there were no democratic that and he's no commie that's guaranteed there's any atrocity of the results show he absolutely invaluable like show we can talk about
2:32 am
anything but me so we belong to me so we can. rule that we have established. the last forty years to to talk not just when that will mean that i'll use them and in some very different from all the nationalist movement we've seen when you have an problems movement with who knew what was the national debt and government had to come jordy i see reacting to what tony is saying there's i want to give you a chance to jump in what are your thoughts what you were hearing from tony. well basically what they're playing this catch twenty two in other words you can be in the pro independence but you can have independence years ago the former prime minister of spain said that you can talk about anything you like as long as there's no violence the issue is of course that with two anonymous backing on the road runs party for the oppression that's been made obviously i'm using the word oppression
2:33 am
because that's was made absolutely clear in the police violence during the referendum even if it was considered a mark referendum and it was a legal or even illegal i mean what's the point of beating up old ladies and kids in you know people who just did not lift a finger in violent reaction i mean it's absolutely obvious that this is oppression that this is using a north korea terry and sons which is the full backing of our north throughout so i don't know you know it's pretty laughable when it was done saying this you know it's the fault of. the p.p. government and that they had nothing to do with it and never east sorry it happened that way. the oil has had constant support from feel
2:34 am
of otherness as long as it was concerning the kaplan movement for greater self-government whether that becomes independence or not that's another issue but there's been absolute stonewalling all the time. ever since twenty ten when the p.p. got the ruling that the former statute had certain illegal articles which absolutely. maimed that conflict kaplan. institution because that effectively the statutes and brain are effectively becomes that you have reporting on this that you i'm sorry that i was signing up but i just i want to go to gabriel for a question because i want to step back for a minute and take the wider view here when it comes to the region i want to talk specifically about the e.u. stance in europe's leaders have shown little sign of budging from their position that catalonia is independence is a matter for madrid is that stance going to remain. well in my opinion there are
2:35 am
here couple of and of course related i'm in. the spanish state in itself and of course a spanish government house here a political problem and it's not sufficient just to throw nor as a as an answer because law has to be as well adaptive and shaper bill towards the political things going on and of course as a huge there's an important part of the cut in society that wants to have a referendum maybe they want to vote yes maybe they want to vote no but there is a huge part of the cut and population that things that this political conflict has to be solved through a referendum so that's one of the dilemmas of the lem of course is within the pro independence ranks because if you want to have a unilateral referendum you need a huge majority and you need to conceive of the probability of coercion and
2:36 am
conflict being present so there is no there's not a magical formula as you eat you can get secession in a state with a forty percent of the electorate and without any kind of closure and so that's another dilemma that has to be solved there and then there's of course the whole european union situation. we don't have cause in the european union at least now any kind of any kind of jurisprudence in that regard there was a secession referendum also in the in the u.k. for for scotland the thing that's the one of the ways forward but the european union debate it's to me syria debate because what matters at least in that very moment is how in the spanish state you try to accommodate these different political these different political visions and how you try to articulate that because many people would deny but to me there's
2:37 am
a clear political problem here. that has to be solved of course both ranks try to bring things to their own political position and try to push for that but at some point a way just need to get an agreement here and try to find a way to solve it then if by any chance there's a proper referendum recognized by the spanish state and european union believes that. a succession is part of that state cannot be directly integrated the european union that would be another another another the bait tony let's talk about the nine council on leaders who are currently in jail and awaiting trial is there any chance that they could be released and is this the major obstacle when it comes to negotiations going forward. look. of these political leaders is something that works perfectly. believe they will
2:38 am
in the sense that they were saying for a while look i'm going to go ahead we knew that it will claim up in the benjamin's we don't care about what the constitutional court says. number of occasions they will. continue with our were they of the people or means or who do go ahead and break spain was there you go to. the people that he's trying to repress and brace ourselves. that the view from and they went out of the way by the truth is that they were advised they were told if you try to break out of the constitution and break up the country and that all along outside of that you and me become increasingly spectacular economic crises and there will be obviously neagle consequences right i think convinced of the
2:39 am
democratic inventions off of all of these of some of these leaders. they need to understand that. there is only doubt. there is only callous and there needs to be consequences you tried to break up a country without respecting the democratic process and without respecting the constitution like in other countries we're going to benefactors are not even allowed. you know many friends. saying they use the of you we are representatives they are represented as it's great because there's a very big happy brain is represented every everywhere but when you try to vary the rights and. ignore the rights of the other how vaterland that to not do it for massively and and also violate the rights of all the land of all those funny people
2:40 am
that voted for a constitution. then obviously the fast consequences right in terms of the dialogue look i think that there needs to be space. because i don't think the biggest economic powerhouse of a sane it's twenty percent of the slimy g.d.p. . they are the half a great amount of autonomy already they manage this badly as the manager the patient they have done in managing language for the see the. i mean we can improve that for sure there are there are ways we propose a number of things to improve investments. and solve a lot of their contributions are some of the reason for this interest the same but this doesn't seem to be. what they want they just want to break up and to recap they don't have a majority and we've seen it as i said been more or for that ready for elections either act they accept reality and they accept that they've been selling like many
2:41 am
other populists move he's been selling their people's lives one after the other or not simply there is no space for dialogue jordi what kind of headway have talks between regional and national administrations yielded i mean is it is it only economic issues or economic deals have been reached so far. well as mr of them said in germany of this no pro independence there's no comes complaisant of prime dependents that's pretty obvious i mean if we were to belong to the spanish to the german federation i think of the kaplan's would be pretty happy with with the deal the thing is in spain there is absolutely no respect for language for mr mr pro dones t. have been promoting the idea that this should be recent relies ation in fact so it's it's pretty laughable once again how mr dunn says that we have all
2:42 am
these powers in local governments. and his own party is now advocating re centralization and if we were so happy if we should be so happy it would be extremely yelled that you know how tough the population of catalonia would want to break away from spain not just more power there a harvest at least that's what mr odum says we don't really know until there is a referendum shortage jordi one start rake away from from from spain joining i'm sorry it's extremely all of this i'm sorry to say i would but it's just that we're really starting to run out of time and tony is shaking his head and obviously wants to jump in here so i want to give a little time here to tony if your response to what george is so i mean i wanted to jump in before hand as well i mean the situation here it i mean if you are running a country you have need to ask yourself why it is the power of the population of
2:43 am
one of your regions wants to leave ok fair enough now tony what's your response to that and just please be mindful the fact that we only have a couple of minutes left here. i'll try to be asfast and i'm clear as far as she will look absolutely false with these member of a in c. saying i studied in back to law that i studied got that and ninety percent of all my subjects leave the base equal or language use in all public schools there's no problem we've got them you're going to spread everywhere really not only that but got a lot of national government over the last forty years have been paying loads of money to promote got and i think the great i've got to learn is a great language just. try to find enemies where they don't exist and so well the crises very very hard the scapegoat that the nationalism found not only through the crises was also too high a number of huge corruption a stand of the had the elites managed to be in these matters where all the problems
2:44 am

2:56 am
a new cruise missile k. bailey hutchison says russia is violating a treaty signed with the u.s. in one thousand nine hundred seven she warned that the u.s. would be forced to consider in her words taking out the missile system if diplomacy fails the ambassador spoke ahead of a nato meeting of defense ministers in brussels on wednesday russia denies it breaking the treaty let's get more on this now from rosalind jordan who is live for us in washington boston. well hossam the ambassador to nato kay bailey hutchinson did make that point but she was very nuanced in describing how the trumpet ministration is looking at what it has believed for more than a year now that russia is trying to build some sort of intermediate range nuclear tipped missile that could reach either a while or europe and the trend has been that this would be
2:57 am
a violation of the one nine hundred eighty seven i.n.f. treaty or intermediate range nuclear forces treaty in which both the u.s. and russia have pledged that they would not use such missiles or even build them and so what. was arguing during this press conference in brussels is that other members of nato the european allies have asked for consultations on this situation because they are obviously very concerned about the threat to their security and the big point holism that hutchinson tried to stress is that the u.s. is looking to its nato allies to help persuade russia through diplomatic means and that only if the situation worsened to a point where they could not be ignored anymore then the u.s. would have to consider that but what she is arguing is that the u.s.
2:58 am
and other members of nato are at the very beginning there trying to persuade moscow that if it is in fact doing this it needs to stop it or else be in actual violation of the i.n.f. treaty all right for the moment roslyn july first there in washington now u.s. defense secretary jim mattis has also spoken the head of aid that nato meeting he has reaffirmed the u.s. commitment to the organization. actions speak louder this the u.s. has acted showing that our commitment to the tranche atlantic alliance remains ironclad our nato alliance is also active every nato ally is awake today to the reality of russia's malicious behavior or fabrice put the a is a chief strategy officer for rest newson global and form a policy director of planning for nato he joins us via skype from santander in spain thanks for being with us so first of all what do you make of the comments by
2:59 am
kay bailey hutchinson. i think it means that the u.s. is going to pressure the iran the breach of by russia of the nuclear forces treaty is not new the u.s.'s come forward already years ago which the nato allies with some intelligence saying that the russia was in breach of that and one nine hundred eighty seven treaty but there was no food endorsement by dia lions and the allies as a whole so i think we are seeing here a kind of a scale ation at least in the rhetoric we have to see out of this defense minister if the other allies who where usually more cautious on the issue of going to endorse the u.s. position and are going to have the food through lage nato official position on recovered a single russian breech of the treaty so i think days clearly some consent on the u.s. side we have to know that cruise me size are really the worst friend of
3:00 am
strategic stability because they are hardly predictable they have a hard to do terror so the moment you introduce a new type of cruise missiles into the european theater you introduce a great deal of instability which is really what the u.s. and other european allies are concept and as far as the the whole issue of funding levels which is something that the u.s. has talked about with it with its nato allies particularly president trump it could they these comments by the u.s. ambassador be seen as a way to kind of scare up the nato ally allies into raising their defense funding levels i think the nato allies in europe where enough that they have to scale up their budget to question is whether they're going to do it quickly enough and well enough in terms of the quantity that you get out of it you spending so i don't figure it's going to change really what is on the allies minds to.
