can you come and support in the house the government in the name of the prime minister and i think the speaker of the commons announced a new government motion for thursday proposing a three month extension to the brics a deadline until the end of june if parliament can approve a deal in the next week otherwise the prime minister says the u.k. would need a much longer extension he may get would have to take part in may's european elections someone backing a swift resolution to be on passed is the most powerful politician. the british i don't point you can talk and it's in everyone's interest that there is an orderly exit because on the one side it's britain that is leaving the e.u. and on the other hand it's about the unity of the twenty seven. but the european parliament just adopted contingency measures to lessen the damage from a no deal brix it covering areas including transport and foreign students the parliament's bricks and coordinator suggested british politicians were unlikely to reach agreement for them it is up to let you know what and not an existential
1:01 pm
problem of a country and of a whole continent and that's a shame. with such chaos in parliament in recent weeks the public's none the wiser about how when or indeed if brics it will happen. but the rest of europe is also following events extremely closely well parliament has now back something but that something is simply an eva whether the u.k. gets more time to come up with a real plan of action could depend as much on the mood in brussels as on the message from westminster nadine barber al jazeera london. still ahead on al-jazeera new moves to end u.s. support for the saudi amorality coalition in yemen but will they get the president's backing. and why this execution room in california will be empty for the forseeable future.

parliament has rejected the prospect of a no deal breaker in another day of drama over britain's departure from the e.u. now politicians will be asked if they're leaving date just over two weeks from now should be delayed. congress is moving forward with a resolution to withdraw u.s. military support from the saudi and the moroccan led coalition fighting in the yemen the senate passed the measure which is now likely to be approved by the house of representatives but there's no guarantee it will actually become law i did joe castro explains why from washington d.c. on yemen the u.s. senate has spoken again a resolution to and american military assistance to the saudi led coalition fighting in yemen passed the upper chamber fifty four to forty six support for the resolution was again bipartisan this is a victory for progressives this is a victory for conservatives and i hope that not only can we end the war in yemen
1:06 pm
not only can we provide humanitarian relief to a people who need it so badly but that today marks the beginning. of a time when congress understands what its constitutional responsibilities or and takes those responsibilities back if this looks and sounds familiar it's because the senate has gone through the same motions before in december senators passed a similar resolution but it went nowhere in the republican controlled house now that the house has a democratic majority it's expected to sail through the real test is whether president donald trump will sign the resolution into law but trump has threatened to veto a white house statement argues the resolution which for the first time evokes the war powers resolution would set a bad legal precedent and despite pressure from members of his own party to distance himself from saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin some on trump has
1:07 pm
doubled down on his support for him that's despite the cia's conclusion that bin selman directed the killing of u.s. based journalist jamal. khashoggi was killed by government hitmen inside the saudi consulate in istanbul nearly six months ago since then the outrage over his murder and dismemberment has been a resurgent topic in congress bringing together members of both parties in a divided government but that has not been enough to convince president donald trump to punish saudi arabia and there's no indication he'll do so now heidi joe castro al-jazeera washington china has pushed back has a request to put the leader of a pakistan based on group on the un's terror blacklist masood heads the jaish e mohammad group that claimed responsibility for last month's suicide bombing in indian administered kashmir the attack killed at least forty troops china says it

1:11 pm
changed his description of the golan heights from israeli occupied to israeli controlled in its annual global human rights report israel has been lobbying u.s. president dogs from to recognize israeli sovereignty over the territory a separate section on the west bank and gaza does not refer to the palestinian territory as being occupied or under occupation rather than jordan has more from washington. in recent years the u.s. state department has been criticized for using its annual human rights reports as political documents the reports are supposed to catalog how well countries are behaving and are observing human rights and whether they have been violating the rights of their citizens and other persons this year's report for twenty eight teen is no different the u.s. is no longer calling the west bank or the golan heights occupied territories
1:12 pm
language that stems from a number of united nations resolutions and so both human rights groups and journalists are raising questions about whether the trumpet ministration is trying to stay on the right side of the government of prime minister benjamin netanyahu in israel by removing this language instead this is what ambassador michael kozak who is in charge of the office that drafted these reports had to say about the change in language occupied territory has a legal meaning to it i think what they tried to do was shift more to a just a geographic description so we said israel goal goal on west bank jerusalem and it's it's a complicated report because there are sometimes multiple authorities who have already over people in particular parts of that territory so it's very complicated one to two right but that my understanding from the from the policy bears on this
1:13 pm
is that there's no change in our. outlook or our policy views of edo territories and the need for a negotiated. settlement or the reports also go far in trying to seemingly advance another trumpet ministration initiative which is to make iran a pariah state and the preface to the report the secretary of state michael pollan payload notes that it's iran that has been quite abusive of its citizens and is trying to promote instability in other countries around the middle east this is another issue that has human rights activists very concerned. least eight people including children and teachers have been killed in a school shooting in brazil police say. the school. opened fire before turning the guns in themselves more people are being treated in hospital for

1:15 pm
the same situation because we came here fleeing from the criminality that's in our country's. time a leap us is a battleground between competing drug cartels and as one of mexico's most dangerous states in two thousand and ten is that is drug gang kidnapped and killed seventy two migrants was the following year dozens more migrants were abducted and murdered . last year on tuesday mexico's president and less manwell lopez obrador said this latest group of migrants were not necessarily abducted. we're investigating to be sure because there's a theory that it's a method that it's used to get yourself into u.s. territory it's not that they disappear but rather that they cross the border that way we've already had two cases like that. in response to the incident mexico's top security official admitted that security is deficient in practically the entire
1:16 pm
country and that thousands more police are needed mexico's new president has promised to protect migrants passing to the country on their way to united states but these latest incidents are stark reminder of how vulnerable migrants are and the magnitude of challenges that the country faces david mercer al jazeera in mexico city. now the governor of california has issued or a priest to more than seven hundred inmates on death row is executive order stops any further exit q sions while he remains in office california has had to put more people to death than any other u.s. states and the gallacher reports in the last forty years more than eight hundred fifty people have been sentenced to death in california in that time period the state executed thirteen people the rest have remained on death row for years on end wednesday's executive order from governor gavin newsom effectively holds any further executions while he remains in office the governor of california doesn't
1:17 pm
have the power to scrap the death penalty but his decision is being seen as a reflection of changing views on the issue we are laying claim to having the largest death row in the western hemisphere a largest death row in the united states of america two times the size of the next largest state florida. and it didn't necessarily square and doesn't necessarily square with i think the values that are represented in the folks behind me and represented the hearts and minds of tens of millions of californians i think we're better than this effective immediately the execution chamber at the notorious sign quentin prison will be dismantled as well as the state's lethal injection program california hasn't executed anyone since two thousand and six and in two previous ballots the voters backed the death penalty in one narrowly supporting speeding up executions but the state's governor says the lives of innocent people are at stake as a national county science report that came out that estimates one out of every twenty
1:18 pm
five people on death row is innocent if that's the case that means if we move forward executing seven hundred thirty seven people in california we will have executed roughly thirty people that are innocent. nuisance executive order augie's that the death penalty is inherently unfair applied more often to people of color and those with mental disabilities california now joins colorado washington and oregon where similar orders have been issued and gallica al-jazeera you can get much more on all those stories we've been following if you had over to our website address that al jazeera dot com. let's take you through some of those stories now then the trial of it the maze woman charged with the killing of a north korean leader's half brother has been adjourned until next month

1:20 pm
parliament has rejected the proposal of a no deal breakers it's another day of drama over britain's departure from the e.u. now politicians will be asked if the leaving date should be delayed the u.k. is just over two weeks away from breaking with a bloc the u.s. senate says voted in favor of a resolution to withdraw military support for the saudi backed coalition in yemen president donald trump has threatened to veto the measure china has pushed back a request to put the leader of a pakistan based group on the un's terror list masood as hardheads the jaish e mohammed group claimed responsibility for last month's suicide bombing in the end minister of kashmir the attack killed at least forty troops china says it needs more time to consider the request from the u.s. france and britain rescuers are searching for survivors in the rubble of a collapsed three story building in nigeria's commercial capital lagos at least
1:21 pm
eight people have been found. it's the stream now. every. time. you're ready to be scared i'm for me ok and you're in the stream what do you as horror film say about blackness from hollywood tropes to heroes where examining the changing role
1:22 pm
of black characters in scary movies. the fans of fright south by southwest is the place to be that is way too scary movies us and a little monsters premieres this week my co-host of allow is the egg giving us a sneak peek at the films and explaining one reason they stand out in the horror genre. i'm standing outside the paramount theater here in austin texas where at the premiere of the new film us from director jordan peele of the get out you might remember that film a psychological fourth film from not too long ago this is the follow up of sorts another thrilling drama that will make you think featuring an all star cast of color stars snoopy ten young doe and winston black panther fame and showcasing
1:23 pm
something you don't often see in horror films people of color don't die for. it's a well known cliche in slasher movies and when audiences outside the us premiere where familiar with it's really influential to have a cast like this and that's due in serious our last film that it had a cast like this was a movie of course the wayans brothers and they did a phenomenal job of making fun of how harm movies basically kill off all the african-american. leads or even supporting actors but in this film everyone was strong as a person of color i think it's very encouraging i think it's really fantastic like someone like jordan is getting a chance to tell the story of his people and from my own perspective as an arab american it just makes me wish that someone like reading about american actors would be just as visible and to me it's inspiring to know that there could be you know at some point some time in place for us to tell our stories. are careful not
1:24 pm
to divulge any spoilers but describe the film as one that makes you think. i don't think it's insignificant who survives i think that's part of his statement. yeah i mean it's you know when they're doing the cure it's just like well it's amazing catholics see him up there. just think you know there's somebody shows on netflix with more diverse cast and it's not a big deal to most of us and it's you know it's time to see. different people doing things that they would be doing you know not that this is what people are. right how could i. if it's an ad. for actress lupita nyong'o us is only one of the horror films screening at south by southwest that she stars in this year she spoke to the stream at the red carpet screening for little monsters a horror comedy in which she plays a zombie fighting school teacher i think what's this what's beautiful about both us and little monsters is that my blackness is not it's not remarkable it's just the
1:25 pm
norm you know that there is a there is the human experience that goes beyond race and that's what these two films are about something else other than the color of skin so when we had a list of people. approached for this role my producers said look this is the opportunity to just take a swing for the francis and say you are who is the ultimate person that you would want in this role and there was no question for me it was the pedro. because she just looked if my son was stuck on a field trip and surrounded by zombies i would want to bring your own there to protect him. i just see it as a stream austin. thanks to discuss my black characters have often been the first to die and how that's changing essentially is actress rachel true also out of. doom she's the executive producer of
1:26 pm
toronto art that's a documentary that examines the role of african-americans in horror films and in college station texas robin means coleman she's vice president for divesting a at texas a and m. university and author of current law blacks in american horror films which inspired the documentary hellova he's so good to have you here i want to show you something here you may have already seen it go into all this is a fish or trailer a shot of a regional high school for some of the comments i was not impressed some people don't even understand what the genre is for instance to chick black car up you don't hear people say white taurus lol conti just be horrid without an agenda. that i want to go to that bridge go oh i was going to hand it up to the professors but just say that's a real white privilege statement they made no professors take it away.
1:27 pm
so so the book very quickly the book and the movie are real worried about recognizing african-americans in the genre it's about celebrating their presence it's about reminding us that representations don't matter this is our documentary and the book really at least is about lax contribution to the john rocker. we have. folks who are saying why why blackness why do we need to talk about focus on that and that that really gestures to a colorblind statement and i am proud of my black men and my culture and the contributions we've made. and i. i bring my race with me and i think it's ok to talk about the cultural history and the racial histories that we embody but what do you think. well i think it's very easy for people who see themselves reflected in media constantly. to be sort of blind
1:28 pm
about how much they take their programming and how meaningful it is when you do exist film and television and also how hurtful it is when you're misuse on film and television and this is a lot of what hardwire gets to the heart because inevitably when you're talking about history that also includes the history where we haven't been treated so well . well and i don't have to start when that in the documentary i talk about the line in black you were black you know and when you're a nine hundred seventy s. head of dracula take with a black cast black you'll it turns one of his friends and then says these friends is looking in the mirror and cannot see his reflection and says what is a man if you cannot see his own reflection so for me that was very deep because as it as a black american quite often i do not see my own reflection none television when i
1:29 pm
was younger this is important just for this one out he is from tatiana ward she's in the spy wing screenwriter she points down some of the generic counters that you might see in a horror noah as she says we've got token black friends they sacrifice themselves for the group annabel but books i am legend mystical really just characters who so purpose is to warn off or advice or they may only surface comic khalif she goes on they might be ma serial killer amongst a maniac or entity that doomed so who are these various different characters that can be helped to head right chil what if he found oh i listen i think the documentary hard enough. art is a great job at breaking down which stereotypes and tropes are actually true in the movies and which are not but this is the beautiful thing about the renaissance of filmmaking right now when when our story a person of color any color stories told by someone other we're going to get
1:30 pm
a story that may not be our road so now that we have driven peel and get out and us and many many other movies we can tell our own stories and we can dispel some of these tropes because to a certain extent i have been the token friend in movies i have been a magical niekro and i have been all these things now there's little threads of those things that are actually great it's when they become you know the norm in every movie be that it becomes a true. professors. no you're right and. no i was going to agree are absolutely right and we've seen you and other black actors struggle to sort of break out of those binds in terms of limited role limited exposure and misuse you know so that's what the horn are is about and it's also amazing to be around at this time in history to see history actually changing
1:31 pm
. and the idea and i want to add is that actors and performers you know if you're a certain extent we take the jobs we can get and if you are a black actor in one nine hundred fifty and you have to play a house servant next to a zombified haitian guy with a white glass eyes you are to a certain extent bending your own self but you are also pushing things forward so it is an interesting position to be and know when you are further outro and yet if you didn't do it there would be zero representation ok so ladies let me let me introduce you to a cliff notes i have a right to end of the session and he talks about what it means that our new law can bring to the genre of filmmaking have a look what i've learned about marketing or just general storytelling is that us is people don't like to be told something we don't want to
1:32 pm
be told. that something is happening we we have a much stronger connection to something when we feel like we've come up with that idea in our own so with using horror you're able to force people to think about oh this is terrible this is something as awful and horrific as a micro gresham in a film might get out and be able to. extend that metaphor throughout the film and really get people to understand what it's like to be black in these worlds so this idea that black film can teach us something about the black experience can you take us a little bit further with that. well horror is the perfect genre to try to encapsulate it's certainly the african-american experience and really the the african experience around the diaspora in places where we were brought in voluntarily and places where we're not treated well my late mother patricia stevens
1:33 pm
do as a civil rights activist and introduced me to her i think in part because she experienced the trauma of state violence as a civil rights activist in the one nine hundred sixty s. she had tear gas thrown at her and had sensitive egalite for the rest of her life so this is very real trauma and i think my mother and a lot of our mothers frankly and fathers learn to see their horrors on film even when they were black dracula could be the monster but it helps you extract some of that trauma base it and maybe even overcome it but certainly learn how to maybe survive better against it really will live on you tube right now i know this film is very close to a hot elizabeth friends they set up she tells that night of the living day she says it was revolutionary in that respect of respecting black culture the black experience and also its comment on racial strunk chat tell us about your connection to night of the living dead and what it teaches us. so everybody has some deep
1:34 pm
connection to night of the living dead and i sort of make an argument that i have the deepest connection the monger group i was born and raised in pittsburgh pennsylvania and if people are true who are heads they know that that is the stomping ground where george romero lived where night of the living dead was filmed in in and around pittsburgh and then subsequently dawn of the dead and so on this is a sad litany of austin of. remeron lessons ok i had so many movies in a line if you didn't grow up with a zombie movie i'm sorry that you didn't but. in a line describe to me for anyone who has not yet seen it but who would put it on their must watch list. ensuring there's a zombie apocalypse and that actually for me the least interesting part of the movie because it's what happens it's a struggle over histories and experiences in human conditions as
1:35 pm
a group of survivors assemble in a cabin and you see in this sort of nineteen late sixty's one thousand nine hundred sixty eight setting how people were negotiating race and gender and class and power and hierarchies and there are children in this space and all of that as they are simultaneously confronted with death and that is not unlike the hounds of circumstances we sometimes navigate today absent that zombies but we're we're really trying to figure out how to how to communicate with each other and survive let me bring in jordan pill he's a writer to so right to the famous film get out a ward winning director and he talks in this documentary. about what he was trying to did when he made that film get out in terms of who he was making the film for havoc. i felt like i want to make the movie that's
1:36 pm
answering every disappointed black person that goes to a theater and watches you know why protectionists make dumb decisions. and that sense of marginalisation. a sense of can we just if there was a brother that would never happen that would never happen if there was a sister would never let this she would she would be out of the house cannot and ladies in the current crop of films how are they i'm packing the black experience what are you seeing that maybe you didn't see in films from the sixty's in the seventy's in the eighty's that you'll seeing now. there's just so much you know pitching in hollywood even five ten years ago you would get a blank face when you talk about black horror or people a way could think about sort of the stereotypical tropes that we talk about person
1:37 pm
dies guide now we have black creators like jordan peele actually telling our story and our history through allegory on the screen whether it's directly about race as in get out or about existence and just existing and i us that revolutionary it is just to have black skin on screen that isn't meant to serve a white community but is just now the collective we you know this is the character as we as black people i'm sure people around the world understand if you love hollywood you have to love people who don't look like you right that's how it is but now we're starting to see more faces and more voices in those horror stories let me just bring the. you know i also say if i hopefully since we're live you have a three way shot i think the most amazing thing about what's happening in the horror genre right now is what you see on a screen and that it is black women magic. the three of us have contributed in
1:38 pm
significant ways to be a genre we're and dancing the genre we are represented in the genre and looks like us were changed and we will continue to star and write about who are and finally women are taking center stage and i'm so excited to be here with these two other women because this is the future and base of who are rachel and i want to let me put it to you this is from england simpson and she says she. is a filmmaker she says being a black woman in horror is so important to me my goal is to ensure that women who look like me are included represented and see today need roles within my beloved genre go ahead rachel go. back to that black yellow quote who are we we can't see or on reflection right and i mean all different shades and colors of us not just me everybody and horror movies have always been a pair of parable parallels for what's happening in the world right we take
1:39 pm
superheroes became big after nine eleven isn't that interesting right so now we have movies like the perch right literally paralleling what is happening in our america today so i am thrilled to be per unit sitting here with these strong women and creating something because i wonder i haven't seen jordan peels i haven't seen us at all i don't nest i don't know what it's about my wonder is if the other movie was about the white gays honest this movie about our own has also featured in i don't know i'm not saying that's what it is but i'm curious about all these ideas because there's what a movie can do is show us our own stories whether it's harra or a straight you know action movie or whatever but i think cora actually has more storytelling in it these days than some of the big temple woman you mentioned the resurgence of women in black women in filmmaking particularly in horror as well i
1:40 pm
want to show a little clip of a film that's coming up saying all t.v.'s spend say warning it's scary. does it feel to be only an upset look at you. as a muslim and i have it all. so you need to shouldn't watch that your face test because i did receive a it's. all said to me but now it seems al of the narratives changing. a lot and i certainly do focusing more on women i'm very i haven't seen my hopeful for it and women are certainly taking center stage and heroes and try to you rules and we have now proven that. black women can spare us.
1:41 pm
bases resurgence but we have always been there and what i mean by black women i also mean this is and she didn't scare flake this is these robison i didn't say black women always scared people right so. then you got to say like if i say yes that's right out lee i'm scare and strong and i'm a scary blackly i asked around for that and so in some ways we're actually dispelling the right of the scary black woman and then building another. you know one of the reasons i'm so happy she's got to go i'm so happy about the timing of horror and why are with us coming out in la coming out right after is it gives you or is able cabbie larry and i lens through which to view these movies to the side oh is this a black horror movie or is this a blacks in the horror movie which is a distinction robin makes at her book you know and one is a black story and one is not a black story but it has
1:42 pm
a black character and i think one of the most exciting things is to have the opportunity to educate as we go because hollywood has a short memory a lot of young people coming and haven't seen candy america right so i don't remember why kid the man was problematic your whatever so you know i would just drop in a classic like candy man without explaining. and you know just setting up because people going to go off and check out some of these films and he mentioned. what can be made as a horror classic and it is a favorite a lot of people on the panel you know but it's about a black. demon's sort of figure who was murdered lynched basically because of his love for a white woman and returns and present in present day back in the ninety's chicago sort of during the crime bill era when there was a lot of emphasis politically on sort of monstrous activity happening in the inner cities so it became kind of their metaphor for fear of the urban right and candyman
1:43 pm
as an urban legend especially looking lusting after a white woman was reinforcing some very very old tropes that robin price about so well in her book and we discussed in the documentary so we don't want to is great is that it is to be able to have your own monster and the more variety we have of stories there's room for black monsters as long as we have also black heroes and there was too much of an imbalance in the past so instead it's in candy man the movie which was came out in the early ninety's correct we have candy man and i want to ruin too much but he is kind of terrorizing people black people can bring the green which is a project right so there's something interesting to me about that it really think about when i saw it but why we can demand a black man be torture and other black people i think there were white directors on this movie. where he just in the new remake will be different this is go
1:44 pm
let's go to a black guy and he's the director of the documentary his name he said neal how many still he says. so for me when i think about what excites me the most within black hard honestly is the future he says the idea of seeing people like jordan peele with get out in the us or to rob me we're going to first purge making their films within black horror unfettered and with support what i'm hoping for more than anything else is that going forward we're going to see more driving murs want to see more joy in people's we're going to see more black folks making black films were in the horror genre and doing it in a way that feels authentic in on this to themselves and i think that's a huge thing a film porter and we need to see more of that going forward i guess what are you excited about in terms of films that people should be going to see right now that riddle sums up the context of black experience but in

a horror movie film it was something new cumbersome and allat give us a tape in i don't connect through drew back to the old yes of course absolutely love that's so what i love about the documentary in the book very quickly is that it gives you almost a full history of blacks and workarounds and so even though there is great energy in it we're feeling energized about get out and us and mark the the point is that blacks have been working on since the eight hundred ninety nine of the end of the show the fit of our program give us one night what you want to watch. how about eric was brown's crazy is no right to not have what you want us to watch what should be on our must see list is by you by k.c. lamb or nice right joe listen i'm going to just sit and watch a hardcore documentary right in that there's a subtle a bit about a great films by gondor got it right one of the old one of the comments from on line we have this coming in. my co-hosts now these guests can we talk about how
