we were watching your report before we spoke to you you were filing that report from the soup kitchen where you're speaking to venezuelan refugees what more are they telling you about their concerns their fears about what could happen in their country. it's not so much their fears as their desire they want to go home their situation here in colombia as in almost every other country in latin america where more than three million venezuelans have fled to because of the economic hardships of home really what they want is to be able to go home and so they're watching it very closely but they don't really know someone more enthusiastic as some have someone more hopeful than others that this time things will change in venezuela but in the meantime they are struggling and they're struggling very good in a very dramatic way they can't go home they can't live very well here time is ticking and and they just need something to happen in venezuela so that they really
12:01 am

12:02 am
the building and down below in the street all these human skulls protesters and there's something of a standoff with each of them shouting slogans that each other to a gross troops movements to see it will lead to movement so i should say on the streets of say that they are out and fools because they will just say that they are fed up with more than two months you know best protest of the destruction that they've seen over the blockades and those who seem to find and smitty the end of this protest attacked said he's a journalist we know shops and buildings damaged call of the tones and we'll keep. are like pictures from paris and apologies we seem to have lost our signal to the toss about the reporting from a demonstration there but you can see the live picture right now on our screen on al-jazeera. with our social media producer is here with more on the different movements springing up across france. to say yeah i was just starting to explain
12:03 am
exactly what's going on but there are currently two counter movements the yellow vest seem to have come together to condemn the violence they say that's been going on since the protests started eleven weeks ago now the risc os was started by an activist from the south of france and he posted this statement on its you chub channel in which he urges people to restore order across the country and that the group is explicitly against all forms of abuse and violence now it all started with this petition that you can see here it's an online petition has already been signed by more than fifty thousand people now the other main campaign we're saying is the blue vest as we mentioned earlier and it was started on twitter by this person here or signees and that's the harsh side that they've been using and they're calling for a citizens movement against what they call the blockades of the yellow vests now both groups started online in november and spread quickly across the country with the
12:04 am
help of social media and they've joined forces and through that they organize today's silent were quoting a silent march on facebook they want it to be peaceful they say which is gained the support of more than twenty thousand people and this was the campaign that was being shed now we spoke to a representative from both the right scarves and the blue vest and they're saying they're coming together with a common purpose and they're not only supporters of president money that they're actually a mix of people from all walks of life and they say they're against the recent riots and the violence. you know you need to wake up and not on the streets because you've already done so we can your spirits show a little. and take a look at what your little message has become and purchasing power in a better quality of life for the french that has no voice anymore now that we've seen the violence that has been at the center of your movement. and of course we're seeing all sorts of reaction from people on to it's especially because it was mobilized online mainly and like this person here who she has an image here with
12:05 am
the red scarf tied around an ominous as i am not a yellow vest and uses the hashtag i am a red scarf and also this person here has been tweeting this picture of himself with the red scarf again to join calling on people to join the movement and uses the hashtag stop that's enough now in reference to the violence of course that we've been talking about and people have also been sharing plenty of pictures as well as videos even from those sorts of riots and protests that we've been seeing in that was mentioned by natasha and this is the hashtag his you can see that's been used amongst all of the people who are protesting as well so we'll be following all of that and will let you know the hashtag that people have been using is much republik didn't see and if you're in france and you'd like to share your thoughts on this story then do get in touch the hash tag is a.j. newsgroup and you'll find me on twitter as well well sir thank you and thousands of miles away in the iraqi city of buses are there have been months of protests there

hello there we've got plenty of unsettled weather across the middle east at the moment we look at the satellite picture we can see one system that is gradually pulling itself together as it works its way in from saudi arabia and the move also got this system out in the western parts of turkey that's given us quite a bit of severe weather we even saw the or tornado out of that this one is just going to give us a few showers around the eastern coastline of the mediterranean here so a fair few breaks of rain nothing too significant here the first one though well that's going to be pushing up through parts of iraq giving lots of wet weather here and a fair amount of snow to it will continue its journey northeast winds as we head through chews day but dragging its feet further south say a bit further south we could also see the old spot of rain here so here's a system then as it makes its way across parts of iraq could see a few outbreaks of rain there and then that gradually slips its way southwards it
12:11 am
does largely fizzle out taya but there will still be a fair amount of dust kicked up i think and we'll say well it's a chance of seeing new york shower here in doha and behind that it will turn fresher again it's really been quite warm for us over the past couple of days down towards the southern parts of africa lots of what weather here and actually the rain in parts of madagascar has been very very heavy recently yet more wet weather is expected here as we head through the day on monday and that stretches all the way into angola to. february on al-jazeera we investigate the toxic legacy of south africa's mining industry and examine exactly what is hiding beneath old is toxic waste africa's largest democracy heads to the polls join us for live coverage as nigeria votes al-jazeera world showcases the best of the networks documentaries with powerful untold stories from the middle east and north africa as cubans are set to vote on

12:13 am
and right now these are the most read articles on al-jazeera dot com the new top spot we've been covering for you here on the news. at the cathedral in the. area you can head to al jazeera dot com to read more about that story. well more villagers are being moved from their homes in southern brazil because it's feared another may be on the brink of collapse thirty four bodies have been found after friday's downbursts hundreds remain missing and hopes are fading
12:14 am
they'll be found alive in the disaster zone the reports from the town are. the heavy rain only makes moretti fraught rescue operation much worse many have been saved and being cared for at this center relieved distraught concerned about their missing loved ones. the feeling is that you're going to die that is the end of everything and you don't know which way to run. president. visited the disaster area but didn't stay long his ministers are overseeing the rescue and relief efforts so that soon all the mud is being monitored by local and national institutions at this moment the heavy part is moving more slowly as we have several monitoring points along the river and we are tracking its movement and investigation is underway into how the dam burst releasing millions of liters of waste from the iron ore mine the owners vale expressed their sorrow they've already
12:15 am
been fined sixty six million dollars but they were also part owners of a mine were a little over three years ago a similar downburst one thousand people were killed damage to the environment was immense we still don't know the scale of this tragedy on either the human or the environmental level what is known is that lessons were not learned from the last november two thousand and fifteen nobody was prosecuted nobody took responsibility for many already asking whether they'll be ignored again here it's there it's disheartening it's sad what carelessness where are the authorities spare the petitions how long are people going to die for things like this how long we'll be crying for our loved ones. were sent to the morgue in search of a missing husband banjul he wasn't there but he doesn't know where he is she may never know and will join others wondering how another down they were told was safe this cause such death and destruction and let's bring in danielle shriner still
12:16 am
covering this story for us first what can you tell us about this new warning of a second down potentially bursting daniel. the alarms went off in the town at five thirty in the morning when not news became apparent what since happened is that your thora to have suspended their search and rescue operation it was already unlikely they were going to find many more survivors from the downburst on friday all they've been doing up until now is recovering dead bodies in thirty seven up until now we've just been down to the riverside where. the scene of some of that devastation houses ruined trucks all over the place even to the extent that there was a dead body floating in the river we inform the authorities they said they knew about it but because they had to suspend operations yesterday such a day because of heavy rain they hadn't been able to retrieve that body so that is the kind of scope of the situation here desperate the very fact they've had to
12:17 am
suspend operations today will leave a lot of frustrated family members around here we've bumped into people pretty close to the edge of the river the edge of the devastation looking for their loved ones people in cheers people desperately looking for information any way they can find that there's going to be even less likelihood of finding that information now with the suspension of of this search operation and what is the government saying now we know that the president today or boston arrow did visit the scene off that ruptured down what further steps are they taking right now. he was here saturday very briefly he flew over here for the couple of tweets also that didn't really speak. to anybody until he got back to back to brasilia he's left a couple of cabinet ministers here they're meant to be overseeing the operation it's mostly being run by by the red cross by the fire brigade and all the other people helping out here i think what a lot of people are doing now is asking serious questions there was
12:18 am
a similar in november two thousand and fifteen near the town of not so very far away from here people die. i did not that was huge environmental devastation nobody was ever prosecuted for that that company that mine was part owned by the same company vale who owns this mine here with where and where we're standing now they these a c.e.o. has expressed his remorse that people are asking why on earth did they not take security checks security measures they said that the down was ok they said they had to check it obviously wasn't and people are asking why lessons were not learnt from the previous. in two thousand and fifteen. all right thank you. now stay in the region and heavy rains have caused part of the hotel to collapse in peru at least thirteen people were killed and thirty others injured when the roof of the wall came down during a wedding party police and firefighters are still searching under the rubble and mud in case there are any survivors. now the pope has
12:19 am
tried to get down with the kids at a world youth day mass in panama urging those in the crowd to spend less time on their phones and more in their communities so the head of the catholic church was joined by about six hundred thousand pogroms for the event pope francis appealed to his audience by using words like apple influence or and saying life doesn't wait to be downloaded. to feel respected and asked to get involved is greater than simply being online life is not a salvation up in the cloud and waiting to be downloaded in an app to be discovered or a technique of mental self-improvement still less is it itchy tauriel for finding out the latest news. so this is a bit of a funny subject for us to talk about here on the newsgroup because we love to connect with all a few online but we also know how addictive our smartphones and computers can be
12:20 am
and there are increasing warnings about their impact on our mind body and relationships especially for young people so listen to this the average american teenager is thought to spend about nine hours a day consuming media watching television playing video games on their laptop or their smartphones and a study by the national institutes of health in the us found that kids who spend more than two hours a day on screens get lower scores on thinking and language tests or using social media can also lead to an increase in loneliness depression and suicide especially among young women and children as young as four are being treated for neck and back problems because they're spending too much. time using phones or tablets that's almost three hours of screen time a day for five to eight year olds let's me to and there is sandberg is a senior fellow at the future of humanity institute at oxford university is joining us via skype from oxford thanks for speaking to us i need to ask you first to get
12:21 am
your reaction on what the pope said because it's not often that you hear the pope talk about social media and apps. yet although this particular pope might be a more media savvy than most and of course the truth we should spend our time in their communities but many of our communities today or online so then how worried should parents be how concerned should they be at the amount of time their kids are spending online and are there any potential long term effects that you know of. so scientists have been trying to do take twitter actually. being online and there's a lot of studies many about produce good headlines but when you put them together excusing their evidence is actually surprisingly weak if it wasn't a really bad effect we would be seeing it is generally the picture is complex what matters is not screen time but what you do on the screen are you communicating with
12:22 am
doctors or are you creating things or you gauging if it will work or or you're just playing the same game on and on and all but it is concerning with the national institute of health as saying out of the u.s. that according to a recent study by them kids who spend more than two hours a day on screens are now testing lower for scores and in their thinking and language tests. the question is is it course because of the screens making them doing worse or is it that we kids actually find it easier to retrieve his screens rather than take in the challenges in the world i think parents really have a duty to engage with their kids in their usage of modern media to talk to them see what they're doing maybe participate in saying oh you're not supposed to be using discreetness and what do you make of the fact that google recently did publicly acknowledge that the phones and apps that they're that are being designed are
12:23 am
designed specifically to capture and keep kids attention so that automatically forces a child so stay on their app for many hours. the problem is that all of our civilization is based on that or cooks are trying to make the most delicious food the possible so we tend to eat too much in the in the list is trying to make a book that's hard to put out so yes we do have an addiction problem but it's not just because of phones and apps so i think we need to learn how to actually control our use of media and technology is but that is not itself the problem of technology this is up to us to learn how to manage it young people are surprisingly savvy in handling media for example they're much more resistant to fake news than the older people it turns out are right and this bites look we're talking about the potential danger of being exposed to over exposed to smartphones as well as technology and
12:24 am
apps but surely there must be benefits as well to letting children use technology are there not. i'm pretty certain the at that very much to have world that this need to through technology where most famous or symbolic man relations our ancestors lived in a much more concrete than practical world and yet that to give him way more sunshine in the wharf and countersuit way more exercise we still need to drop our screens from time to time to function biologically but actually to function in the high take world you need to engage with high tech not it you can't just read about it and then the whole but once you're finished at university you can't figure out how to use the computers and media rights or god and or assembler we thank you very much for joining us from oxford thank you now let's take a look at some of the other stories making news around the world and uncertainty is growing between turkey and the u.s. over a proposed safe zone in northern syria the turkish president. says he'll go at it
12:25 am
alone if he doesn't get logistical support from the trumpet ministration which has removing its troops osama bin jeff aids has more on the political situation from cigarettes near the turkish syrian border. a lot's been said about the so-called safe zone between turkey and syria if and when u.s. forces start to leave this area turkey wants everywhere east of the euphrates river to be clear of not just eisel but kurdish fighters as well the proposed thirty two kilometers would reach the edge of the contested city of my big insight syria is the last go to stronghold on the best inside of the river well just rumored to be didn't meet thirty kilometers is something i think everyone can discuss positively we can even extend morris' the us coalition gives us economic and logistics support we can make the safe zone real right across. in two thousand and fifteen this was a flash point in the fight against eisel this is the first major town that we come
12:26 am
across as you move east along the border the proposal also includes the towns of the lobby and russell laine commission who will be the biggest border city hold nearly half a million people some parts are also under the control of syrian government forces turkey would like to administer control of the sabin all the way to maliki here on the iraqi border is going to be talking to turkey about assuring turkey that they will have a buffer zone that they need given their concerns about the why b.g. kurds but the last thing in the world we want is a war between turkey and the kurds and a lot still remains to be settled between turkey the united states and russia post offices in gaza are distributing money donated by qatar it's one thousand four thousand palestinian families it's part of an informal deal with israel negotiated by the un and agreed to in november but the deal and the delivery of vital
12:27 am
humanitarian aid have been hindered by political interference in recent weeks charles stratford explains. these men have come to collect one hundred dollars each from this post office in gaza city the cash they are receiving is from the qatari government donated to more than ninety thousand families here but in general one hundred dollars one solve anything i have a children we need israel siege to be lifted the crossings open and the end of political division that's what will solve our problems. the cash is part of a humanitarian program for gaza being led by carter with u.n. assistance but the donation process is far from straightforward under an informal agreement israel in november allowed concerts to begin sending nineteen million dollars to gaza over a six months period the money has to pay the salaries of civil servants and to buy power station fuel as well as humanitarian aid but for almost three weeks the
12:28 am
israeli government refused to approve the third installment around fifteen million dollars after an escalation of violence along the gaza israel border with israel finally allowed the money transfer hamas refused to accept it saying these release a change the conditions of the cash transfer deal was politicizing the issue before is radio elections in april many israeli politicians are against the agreement saying the government is paying what they describe as a terrorist organization to keep quiet hamas says that it cannot raise sufficient taxis because gaza kaname is so deeply affected by israel's more than ten year and single day meanwhile the united nations says the situation for gaza's two million population is made worse by what it describes as international donor fatigue. the u.n. says whether you agree with hamas policies or not humanitarian aid should not be politicized and i appreciate those kinds of arguments but think that we need to
12:29 am
keep humanitarian and political concerns separate i think if you start questioning the political motivations of humanitarian aid you will never get anything done. hamas says with or without carter's money friday protests on gaza's border will continue until israel lifts its seach at least two hundred fifty palestinians have been killed mainly by israeli sniper fire since the demonstrations started in march and hundreds of thousands of palestinians like these continue to rely on international humanitarian aid to survive at al-jazeera gaza. canada's prime minister has fired his ambassador to china after comments he made about the chinese technology giant weiwei john mccallum said it would be great for canada if the u.s. dropped its extradition request for y. way executive meg one zoo she was arrested in vancouver last month accused of
12:30 am
evading american sanctions on iran canada's prime minister justin trudeau didn't give a reason for sacking the ambassador another round of protests have flared in hard to him demanding the end of president obama the best years thirty year rule demonstrations began almost six weeks ago over the rising cost of bread and fuel hundreds of people have been arrested a security forces crackdown on the nationwide rallies has more from khartoum. freedom peace justice and the overthrow of president bashir are the main slogans being chanted by these so the nice protestors but at the root of the demonstrations are demands for basic life necessities but old stations ran out of fuel inflation rates soar bank coffers were empty people stopped deposing money with banks and those who did face limits on how much cash they could withdraw most dangerously bakeries ran out of floor of all the other needs bread can be seen as the main

symbol of the crisis doesn't it and yet if the revolution of the hungry. a bust they did was a journalist during the one nine hundred seventy s. at the time of former president. his life now may symbolize the slow descent of sudan from relative ease to utter the situation. everything was much better they miri was a strong leader we had i agree culture to certainly span was equal to four dollars but now it's crisis everywhere and people have nothing to eat we don't want to know the origin of that crisis the sudanese government agrees was a shift the country made from agriculture to oil during the one nine hundred ninety s. but the hustle and i mean some of the model who indeed it's called the dutch disease when easy only revenue arms shift attention away from traditional resources such as farming we've had it in sudan but now we are addressing the problem through new
12:32 am
strategies and will focus on agriculture. but in two thousand and ten sudan exported nearly half a million barrels of oil a day but a year later south sudan gained independence and took most of the oil fields with it by then the ugly cultural sector was already suffering from neglect and there was another shift happening the mon. in the past sudanese households relied mainly on sorghum for food and that things changed when the british and i in our government's approach wheat preparing sorghum is towards the mint takes time you know we have to take it to the mills to grind it then we need a long process to cook it with bread on the other hand is handy all you need is to go and buy it ready from the bakery and then without the heart now then as i was a month. wheat bread now accounts for two thirds of regular meals and so that just to give you an idea about how much bread an average family of five individuals
12:33 am
in sudan need for the daily meals each individual that i'm here needs six pieces of bread if i try to put all the quantity they need in my hands. it's not possible this is just the share of two people. the crisis got worse when sudan couldn't grow or buy enough wheat saudi and r.t. companies grow millions of tons of wheat here on least or purchased land what do they send it out of the country now sudan with its over two million hectares of fertile soil that even oil and the gigantic underground lake the newbie in basin is begging for outside help to satisfy its demand of wheat to feed the hungry population of nearly forty million. does to say it's too late to come these cards bread will overthrow this regime as it happened before here in sudan was a sense of his words is
