2:05 am
a refugee crisis in the region with three point three million venice ones i have fled the country so because of this situation because obviously. tenth more than fifty countries all over the world latin america north america and the reappearing union are not seen there recognizing the only legitimate institution in venezuela which is the national assembly the speaker of the house is one way though the house because the interim president of venezuela right now understand that but i come back to my question because you can say those things and many people been saying them for many years and you indeed have said on twitter that we confident we're going to restore democracy soon come back to enjoy freedom and democracy but how should every turn i think we're very close to restore democracy in venezuela and i think we're very close to recover our freedom to have people going back to my homeland. because my little boy is completely isolated by venezuela and some by and international community
2:06 am
something that he says started to happen he's getting isolated by the armed forces which is the only piece of the possible that we need to start a transition in venezuela there are so many soldiers are already expressed their disagreement with the regime because they are suffering from the same problems as any venezuelans. with shortages of food maybe seeing hyperinflation do you see that now the military are on the verge of slipping sides. totally and i think which is important to understand is that we want our forces to become institutional the armed forces kind of be from any political party the armed forces are the ones according to a constitution. called to protect our nation on their standing nation by our territory on a our people so i think they are. getting
2:07 am
this message very clear many soldiers have been tortured recently that almost two hundred soldiers who are illegally in jail and we need to understand them of the regime is not only affecting venezuelans model of regime has become a threat to the region because this is a regime that is involved in criminal economy such as truck trafficking and illegal buying stuff eighteen brasil colombia which are our neighbor countries but also in other ok i just want to jump in there really quickly if be very brief if you would there is a call for nationwide protests as you all know on wednesday will be will they be well supported just briefly if you would yes to morrow we're calling for a very important protests i think is going to be one of the most massive protests are we going to see even in venezuela obviously it's a nonviolent protests we're going to see hundreds of thousands of people not only
2:08 am

2:09 am
government to make sure that that happens as quickly as possible along with the release of all of the other political detainees he's always been a peaceful protest or he is. has been concerned for many years about the state of sudan and he has been trying to bring change. the voice of all the sudanese are really crying for freedom for peace and for justice. no ruler should be in control for thirty years so i'm really calling now for omar al bashir to step down. as a dictator that has been exploiting and oppressing the people for for many years what i'm robert scheer has flooding today hard to meet. it is bush's first overseas trip since protests began last month he morgan has the latest now from costa. what

2:15 am
for analogy to indian football and he was about to join in english premier league club. and rafael nadal makes the semifinals of this training open will show you how he got the news for. now that brazil's new president has laid out the welcome mat for big business and major investors on day one of the world economic forum in davos climate change in the digital revolution a among some of the major issues on the table but the focus has also been on some of the big names missing this year john hall reports now from those. a chill has settled over down mass and that's not just the weather leaders of some of the world's biggest economies china the united states france and the u.k. have stayed away to find crises at home crises fueled by nationalism populism and
2:16 am
those left behind by globalization it is everything the world economic forum is supposed to stand against and yet this year's big ticket visitor is brazil's new president far right nationalist valsin r.-o. here to launch what he calls a new brazil then there was a big. we intend to reduce the size of the residence state the parties and carry out a form such as the social security reform the tax reform we wish to relieve those who produce and undertake business and projects from the weight of a heavy state that's good news for business less so for those who depend on state aid it's an odd look for an annual gathering traditionally built on bridging divides it does say that there's a bit of a shift and that those major leading democracies in the world are exhausted tied in knots have problems but it also says this community here of globalists is perfectly willing to flirt with their liberal leaders in the world. compensation came in the
2:17 am
heavyweight fight against climate change identified as a major world threat having heard both scenarios call for economic development in the amazon delegates listened to royalty interviewing a british knight of the realm what advice do you have all my generation and what's what can we build on that you have started we have to recognize that every breath air we take every mouthful of food that we take comes from the natural and that if we damage the natural world we damage ourselves it's what the forum aims to do best global box office in the name of a better world the theme of this year's world economic forum here in davos is the fourth wave of globalization the digital revolution it predicts a world in which technology competes with workers of all stripes blue collar and white in which the winners of globalization get ever richer but fewer in number it
2:18 am
is a world in which inequality deepens and political leaders no longer have all the answers jonah how al-jazeera davus switzerland where we just saw that warning from david attenborough in general report others have also been touting their voice to the climate change message in devil we have to change. we are putting one hundred ten million tons of manmade heat trapping global warming pollution into the very thin shell of atmosphere surrounding our planet as if it's an open sewer and we do that every single day and you know there is a misconception that most of us have had at some point in our lives about the nature of the sky it is not as it appears from the ground a vast limitless expanse it is actually
2:19 am
a very thin shell actually this is about being on the right side of history do you want to be a leader that you look back in time and say that you were on the wrong side of the argument when the world was crying out for a solution and it's as simple as that being on the right side of history let's speak to outsider a man who's the former head of international climate with friends of the earth and now executive director at warren wants a global antipoverty and human rights group joins us from london via skype said the foremost risks to our world right now this is according to the world economic forum not weapons of mass destruction not cyber security but one climate change to extreme weather events three natural disasters. absolutely i mean the world economic forum's or new report just before the dove was begun said exactly that that this climate change was with the number one threat to the
2:20 am
global economy but prior to that we've got to remember the clients climate scientists have been ringing the alarm bells at just one degree warming the world are seeing killer droughts floods far means it's devastated the lives and livelihoods and millions of people around the world and so climate change is not something that's going to happen in the future is actually happening now and the start warning that they're given in the decisions we make in this next decade will determine if we breach the critical guardrail of one point to five degree moment which would trigger the changes in humanity itself that will lead to species extinction force millions of people from their homes lead to collapse of our food systems and yet we're on track for a warming of the planet of least three to several reasons warming it's madness well science knows it is a message that is continually being pumped up there are those at davos listening and the biggest emitters as i say are only even there there is no us the giant no
2:21 am
u.k. no front. yes well i mean the devil's never got off to a good start when you get to the top elites of the world jet into divorce on the sizes of private jets to talk about climate change it makes a mockery of it but warm words were never enough and we need action and structural change and the question i think we have to ask ourselves are the very elites who are gathered at the world economic forum the people who are going to bring that change because many of these people are the ones that benefited most from the broken new liberal economic model that is profit before people in the planet which is hundred power to them very corporate interests which are driving climate crisis and driving inequality and as we heard from the boss of our of brazil the very people who are demanding that we cut the regulations i'm also needed and so the people who most benefit to them we've got to remember just one hundred of the top companies in the world are responsible for seventy one percent of global emissions
2:22 am
and the top ten percent wealthiest people in the world are responsible for all half of arc where global emissions and and we began doubles where the richest twenty six people in the world now all as much wealth as half the world's population three and a half billion people live on less than five dollars a day was the super rich get wealthier and wealthier so the question we must ask ourselves is other people on the top of the mind and in switzerland the want to are going to bring that change and i would say absolutely not because birds these people are the very same people who have known that climate change has been up in the north for decades in fact the first evidence of climate change in the demands happened in the one nine hundred seventy s. the many of the same elites and big corporate interests have done very very little to take action and one great example of that is this conversation about the subsidies that governments give to the fossil fuel industry who already make trillions in profits every year we gave one hundred forty seven forty seven billion
2:23 am
dollars in subsidies to big fossil fuel companies who are spending that money extracting new fossil fuel even thought we have to stop all extraction right now aaron i said we'll have to leave it there probably will have to leave i do appreciate your perspective on this very valuable thanks very much indeed i said remember from work on want. the u.s. senate is likely to vote this week on bills that if passed in the month long partial government shutdown the competing proposals by republicans and democrats would see several federal agencies reopen it's the longest government shutdown in u.s. history with hundreds of thousands of workers going without a paycheck the political deadlock began over funding for president transfer. along the border with mexico more on that by kind of standing by in washington d.c. so what chance the shutdown ending well in this bitterly partisan debate the agreement that the two bulls will be discussed in the senate is being interpreted as a form of compromise however one bull drawn up by the republicans mirrors what
2:24 am
president trump suggested over the weekend that he gets his money for the wall and he defers action against so-called dreamers along with a three year protection for people in the country illegally now that has been rejected out of hand by democrats and it's unlikely to change during the bait on thursday the second bill that will be discussed is one drawn up by the democratic party leaders and that provides for short term funding to reopen government until february eighth but does not provide money for president trump's wall so the bottom line is that the democrats would need the support of thirteen senators to get that passed so it's extremely unlikely so you're unlikely to see any movement in what is being labeled as a compromise in the senate and the house speaker has once again made her plea for government to open. be very clear open government
2:25 am
open the government let's talk cannot have the president every time he has. an objection to say i'll shut down government until you come to my way of thinking understand that is part of the point of this this if we hold to employees hostage now they're hostage forever and by the way what the president proposed is granting what he had already taken away the pres that darker recipients had their protections she's a speech that temporary protected status t.p.s. had that protection president took it away and now he's saying well i'll give you this back temporarily if you give me a rope a wall permanently open government so where does that leave trump's wall and who is which side is damaging more. well it's a very difficult question to answer certainly opinion polls indicate that the
2:26 am
majority of americans hold president trump responsible for this shutdown president trump himself said that he would be proud to own the shutdown he said that publicly since then of course he has been trying to shift blame on to the democratic party leadership saying that they are being inflexible and they will not accept his compromise offer while the democratic leaders insists that that is no compromise whatsoever as to be heard there the listening action against the so-called dreamers is something that president trump had already taken away and which has been overwritten only this week by the supreme court so certainly there is no apparent compromise inside whatsoever the only possible way for any movement forward is in the senate the house has passed a number of funding bills back they cannot get passed in the senate it's time that americans many americans would insist that the senate itself breaks away from this part is that decision and does what is best for the country as
2:27 am
a whole and that is votes on one of the measures to open government and not be held hostage by a president insisting on the wall right mike hanna thanks very much indeed mark another in washington or ten thousand children are being represented in the lawsuit targeting the trumpet ministration the southern poverty law center filed the claim in defense of children separated from their families on the policy introduced in april they say the children were held in more than one hundred tension centers away from their parents for a lawsuit claims the separation was a deliberate way to deter families from immigrating. mexico's president has responded to last week's deadly pipeline boston and see a raft of social reforms to improve the living conditions of people prone to stealing fuel ninety three people were killed when a fire broke out attempted to collect fuel from the legally tapped pipeline. north of mexico city now a republican reports now from
2:28 am
a home by in central mexico president lopez over those visits by mexico was very well received several thousand people came to see him speech of course he spoke in the wake of that large explosion that took place just last week that left more than ninety people dead now the president spoke about the need for creating jobs creating opportunities and investing in education to lessen the dependency that many communities have on still until now to give you some context of where we are we're near a pipeline that's become very popular among the oil oil thieves so popular that military personnel are keeping a constant presence here to make sure that people don't come out here to tap more more fuel pipelines and that's part of the problem if you will is transported from one end of the country to another via fuel pipelines that are easily tout they're very susceptible to oil thieves how susceptible in two thousand and eighteen the government reported more than fourteen thousand illicit taps on fuel pipelines and
2:29 am
again this is not a new problem but this is a problem that the new mexican president is being forced to tackle is being forced to find a solution to on december first of last year the president announced the deployment of somewhere around thirty two thousand military personnel to guard sections of pipeline and guard refineries that are considered as being vulnerable to thieves the actual the issue of fuel theft as it's believed to have been contributing to as much as seven point four billion dollars in revenue losses over the last three years so this is quite a big problem and it is at the moment quite a hot topic. police have suspended the search for a light aircraft carrier english premier league footballer amelia on the plane disappeared over the english channel as it made its way to wales for the twenty eight year old arjun time to make his cart of city debut the well it is more argentinian footballer. was heading from france to a new life as a premier league star but his journey and his life appear to have ended tragically

eastwards is that system begins to pull itself together in the north we'll see a fair amount of snow from it in the south a fair amount of rain and actually ahead of it it's going to be dragging winds up from the south so it will feel a little bit more of the than it has been recently behind it though it's going to be cold at once more as the air digs down from canada so the top temperature in winnipeg will be shooting down minus twenty one will just be on much of a temperature that system still with us along that far eastern coast as we head through thursday but for the other coast along the west it should be falling enjoy fifteen there in san francisco now some of that wet weather across the u.s. also works its way a bit further south with so it's edging its way towards the yucatan peninsula for the day some rather heavy rain here ahead of it largely fine and dry for most of us maybe just the old shower perhaps if your unlucky the wet weather that's been over parts of argentina has eased but instead we're seeing more showers just to the south of rio one of two of the might hit us in rio but south paolo is looking pretty wet not only on wednesday but also on thursday too to the north of all of

2:36 am
a ninety government activist arrested in sudan has told al-jazeera she's had no word on her husband's whereabouts sudanese american would one daie would was detained six days ago want to know what is in the united states to help free him. climate change and the digital revolution are among the major issues being discussed on day one of the world economic forum but leaders from china the united states france and the united kingdom and not attending. well media freedom is also being discussed at the forum including the killing of saudi janice jamal khashoggi who wrote for the washington post the newspaper's executive editor amati baron says not enough international pressure has been placed on riyadh over them. we're disappointed with what the saudi government did first of all this was. a walk into a diplomatic mission to obtain documents for his. imminent and marriage and he was brutally murdered murdered he was dismembered his body still hasn't been found the
2:37 am
saudi government said from the beginning that he walked out freely that they did nothing and we learned later that in fact he was he was murdered and and today we feel that there hasn't been full accountability for that for that murder and we don't feel that the u.s. government has brought enough pressure on the saudis we don't feel that other governments of brought enough pressure on the saudis because of this and i think that you know we have to take a look at well why was he murdered he was murdered for expressing an opinion and opinion that at times was contrary to the official opinion of the of the saudi government and we also have to look at well how do we know what actually happened there because the saudi government arisia conditionally didn't lied about what had what occurred there and the reason that we know about that is because of a free press a press that investigated this that which which was persistent that tried to on earth the facts and did on earth the facts and then ultimately the saudi government
2:38 am
needed to acknowledge that in fact a team of individuals went from saudi arabia to turkey to istanbul with the express purpose of murdering murdering him and that's why we need a free press is to is to dig deeply and to hold people accountable and so with the satisfied along the way obviously dissatisfied with the brutal murder and horrified by beautiful brutal murder of one of our colleagues dissatisfied that the world. does not bring enough pressure on a government that engages the those kinds of activities. talks between the taliban and u.s. special. envoy zalmay khalilzad will continue into a third day in cuts have been happening is details emerge about one of the worst attacks against the n.d.s. which is afghans intelligence service in the seventeen year war the taliban attack the training base in might and sharyn wardak province on monday india says thirty

2:40 am
the armed groups growing influence last year taliban fighters launched a series of attacks across the country including a suicide bomb attack in the capital kabul in january at least one hundred people were killed mostly civilians analysts believe the taliban is increasing its attacks to gain more leverage in crucial talks with u.s. diplomats in qatar what we had today in my down shot was a tit for tat forward the united states in the african government is doing to the taliban so the taliban are i think they're coming out of that hibernation period they're trying to carry on the same policy where do going to inflict damage to the african government and its international counterparts and talks are underway in doha where the taliban has a political office u.s. special representative for afghan peace zalmai is meeting senior taliban members
2:41 am
here the talks underway to find and to the war in afghanistan and establish a unity government the u.s. envoy recently told the region seeking help from allies including pakistan and in many ways the role of pakistan is key the u.s. a negotiator ambassador zalmay holland's art was just in pakistan for several days before he went to doha and the pakistani prime minister imran khan is visiting doha as well it's not clear exactly what role pakistan is playing but they may be playing a newly positive role but peace won't be easy the taliban does not recognize the government in kabul and insists beast. talks will only start when foreign troops leave afghanistan. as iraq. has given permission to the un special rapporteur on human rights a minimal to visit to an island where hinge refugees will soon be relocated young

2:43 am
