4:14 am
council cave on kosovo he issued a statement now we should keep in mind that the iranian president hassan rouhani is the head of this council and so it is very much a statement being made under his administration in this statement it reads that bolton lacks military and security understanding his comments are mostly for show based on the accurate monitoring of iran's armed forces the aircraft carrier abraham lincoln entered the mediterranean sea twenty one days ago and his statement is just for psychological war it goes on to say that it is unlikely the commanders of the u.s. armed forces want to test the capabilities of iran's armed forces now there's a couple of things happening here the iranians see this move as purely psychological not an actual military decision to make some sort of action against iran and they're calling the united states out on it saying this is psychological warfare and they're sending a message to the iranian people in this statement suggesting at the end of it that not even american commanders have faith in the u.s.

4:21 am
al-jazeera more news in thirty minutes the stream is coming next stay with us. i for me ok and you in the stream today what challenges does ramadan pose for listenings with eating disorders is out of the games which take a look at how those who are struggling can best be supportive and i'm really good at this time of year can be difficult for muslims struggling with or recovering from eating disorders and related mental health issues millions of muslims around
4:22 am
the world pass for thirty days from dawn to sunset and it's a time of spiritual discipline contemplation and enhanced connection to god and the end of each day is celebrated with family and friends as the fast is broken over food before we go any further we would like to give a warning to have us on today's program we will discuss anything disorders the topic may be triggering and upsetting for some research shows that the prevalence of eating disorders in the western world is higher than that of non western countries but muslim women are just as sceptical to believe and are axia or guard lists of their cultural background or where they grew up this is one woman's story . my name is seen and i am a muslim algerian writer based in oakland california and last year i wrote a personal essay called what it's like to have an eating disorder during ramadan and the piece was something i had been considering writing for multiple years but actually it wasn't until i shared the idea with another muslim friend of mine.
4:23 am
that i kind of felt validated in writing it because i realized through talking with her that it was actually a far more common issue than i had realized. and i think the reason i hadn't realized that was because no one else was really talking about it and so after that conversation i did feel the responsibility to to write and publish this piece and obviously teen vogue is an incredibly public platform. but i don't think i expected it to circulate as much as it had fallen publication and so through being shared there was kind of the things idea of how people would perceive vet but i think that you know i've been very fortunate in that the response has been overwhelmingly positive i think that there are definitely still people who feel that this is
4:24 am
a conversation that's better left unspoken and then had. but my my true belief around this is that the only way we're ever going to do stigmatize mental health and mental health issues. within our own communities is really by having these difficult conversations. thank you for sharing your story with the stream with us to discuss this issue we have. an ad to face the mental health counselor saffi had. a right to in minneapolis minnesota and atlanta georgia in india molly is an licensed professional counselor and dr dani clinical assistant professor of psychiatry at stanford university and director of the stanford muslim mental health welcome to the stream everyone and. to all of you i want to start with a story from our community and as here lays it out in
4:25 am
a thread on twitter and she says it's ok to share with the world because these are very personal things but she's open to sharing them so this is what i write i feel conflicted as always i welcome the arrival of our holiest month the opportunity to grow closer to the almighty and to renew my intentions to establish justice but this is a month of triggers the read traumatizing questions about why i don't fast the trigger of having our religiosity examined through our relationship to food our communities failure to provide support for our siblings who can't and that's not because of physical illness but mental illness all cause pain and isolation julie i'll direct this tweet you talk to us about the feeling when it comes around what does that mean i get absolutely relate to that i'm a newer muslim so i converted in about two thousand and sixteen prior to that i can empathize with that feeling when family gatherings would be extremely triggering
4:26 am
with the focus around she would but i never really understood how ramadan could be triggering obviously until i converted. i have been in recovery since about two thousand and ten show when i converted in two thousand and sixteen it was very triggering shermie and it was deaf. only a time when i had to confront my eating disorder again after having been in recovery for a really long time and. make sure that i was practicing fasting and not starvation i can understand how many people who are observing fashion during ramadan may feel triggered to want to go into starvation mode because once you start fasting it's easy to keep going and deprive yourself to a point of self harm when you do have an eating disorder like anorexia and then with bully me with the over indulgence during the meal times i can imagine that
4:27 am
that would be extremely triggering in the muslim community is as well there seems to be this stigma that if you. have a mental health issue. that it is in part due to a weakness in your face which i think is you know extremely destabilizing and debilitating for people who are potentially seeking support and she king some sort of community so when muslim communities unintentionally turn people away intentionally from the religion by not opening up their arms and having empathy towards people who are struggling with mental health issues and in turn condemning them rania i want to show you something this is from a website i found about islam an eating disorder is look when my laptop and just in a way to go hey i said that you don't miss any part of this calling up young man here eating disorders affect muslim men too and this is islam and this issue
4:28 am
here kind of exasperated perhaps by ramadan. can you explain the extent of what we're talking about about we're not just talking about billy mia which is eighteen and then poaching we're not just talking about anorexia which is restricting calories when we talk about eating disorders rania just can you give us a little definition for what we're talking about so everybody understands the challenges of what a month of fasting actually means sure and i first i just want to say thank you first of all crowding this discussion i think part of the solution to everything is actually having discussions on behalf of the super bowl so much better thank you for having this discussion and having on your and out of all my fellow muslims to answer your question and that's discussion on the poster you hope. to sort of into we have to go back and define what exactly is happening when you think about
4:29 am
needing to order is really it's more restrictive than on eating the meat you're good for and then in an hour during which you truly kind of alluded to which is much more the concept of do the eating not so much research or eating and certainly it's going to run and women are away it's what we see in the prevalence of eating disorders were amongst women and men. safai take us back to when you were a teenager and your classmates and schoolmates were trying to pull stillness possible take us into that mindset. i think that me and my classmate it wasn't all of my classmates was more me and my friend group we were suffering from low self-esteem and we wanted to not necessarily be the sizes and the shapes that we were naturally born to be so in
4:30 am
high school i consistently weighed about one hundred eighty five pounds and i was by ten that may look like obesity to some people but the way that i wear my weight i look back on photos and x. you have a lot of slender person but definitely someone who isn't overweight necessarily and i didn't see that i think i suffered from body dysmorphic disorder and i think that my friends did too because we used to reinforce each other's negative self image by doing diets together what. thank you for sharing that story i wanted to share another one that we got from someone online mrs raftery says i developed interact in twenty sixteen when i was coming out my entire family had already suspected that i've lost too much weight way too fast i was ashamed to eat in front of others yet forced myself to eat only in front of family to prove to them that i was eating but raf goes on to say that ramadan was probably the most exhausting time of my life i
4:31 am
had to not only battle with my mind but also with god it was challenging for me because i consider myself to be a pretty religious person yet here i was going into the month of ramadan for the wrong reasons nadeem talked to us about what you hear when when i read this tweet when you hear this story what is that spark for you talking about going into it for the wrong reasons and it being an exhausting time what is it about this month that might exacerbate it for people to think it's important to understand the reason for the month of ramadan and the reason for the month of ramadan that's the month of the koran and i think if we have that perspective as opposed to continuously focusing on the issue of food because as the law says that if you there's a person in the slum say that fasting workpiece people him testing is the only thing that's for him you only only you know if you're fasting the night and so we don't need to wear signs that the mustard i'm not thirsty and but the thing is to
4:32 am
recognize that a person can do volunteer work a person to engage in worship they can go to do this a lot of the war we there's so many things that they can do as opposed to focusing on the things that they cannot do and also there needs to be more education from the pulpit of the middle of that from the moms because again there's so much in this land that focuses on wellness and guilt in so we tend to focus on things that are basically it might contribute to triggers. people who are suffering from disorders want to have somebody was going to the current to look to see for some guidance about what they should be doing in fostering and the health what she shared with them there was one quote that we found the at team looked and thought well this is funny appropriate i'm going to throw that out so people can actually read that and see that but what guidance is the crank if you if you're not well maybe if you do have a struggle with it and you want that maybe an entire month focusing on not
4:33 am
a thing might disturb your recovery what do you do what is the crime say absolutely i think it's really important to understand that with religious. ruling that's there there's also about alternatives to that and in the alternatives it's essentially a mercy too so it's important to know that when a person is unable to balance because of any sort of the q. where quanah condition that they may be dealing with whether it's physical or mental health related then there is a turn it is and it absolutely will how so usually they want to person and when asked for themselves they go ahead and help lead those who are acting for example as one of alternatives and by and that their way out by their party only into this month of ramadan and like humanity and said even if they themselves are not currently bastien. we think i'm right at the top if you will try to faint if you have a cat might i might my laptop i can see where your mind is right now thank you for
4:34 am
being prepared for the chat it is a tween hair ramadan fasting a mental illness that we haven't really gone deep pain but if you are struggling with your relationship with it then that is something that you can't see that maple struggling with fast and and how are you helping your fellow community people who are struggling coming to you how are you helping them with but what ramadan fossum mental illness is saying you know not only mental illness but we have people who they have diabetes or hypertension or other illnesses in which when it would disallow them to chess and so that every time ramadan approaches they they have a sense of shame and you don't want to eat more shame on people you know it because again they create it will give us he gives us basically opportunities to do other things and so one of the things that i do is to encourage people to do as much as
4:35 am
you can do that because again as the prophet peace be upon him said he only came to improve people's character you know and so for this month already for this ramadan and so and i still work on my character you know so each year you know during ramadan you know you look at ok what do i need to work on and also outside of ramadan a person needs two people working a good recovery program they need to have a support group they need to basically have a treatment team if you're not working it is just like a person who is dealing with addiction and they're not going to meetings or they're not having a sponsor not working a lick of reprogramming calling drug drugs you know because and so if you're not working or you know looking at the spiritual aspect or doing a holistic program then what happens is you can be dry and then you. risk for relapse into an eating disorder one i'm glad that human chain and what it is that
4:36 am
one needs to be working on what can i do instead as one of the solutions because we got a comment on you tube live from someone who said something very similar elizabeth said exceptions seem like a good solution there are exceptions for the christian holiday of lent for example if you're unable to fast you can honor it and other ways and that's similar to what you were saying but you also mentioned the idea of shame and how to deal with that we got a couple of tweets from someone who i want to read this out this is from she says if you're an eating disorder survivor unable to process ramadan and ramadan in general stresses you out just know i love you and you got this you don't owe anyone any explanation or anything do you i think it's this is an important topic though she goes on to say because mental illness in itself is a taboo topic in our community survivors might feel shame and guilt from the beginning anyways so instead of making their lives harder during this time people should be more sensitive sassy i'm going to write this one to you talk to us about
4:37 am
that shame what that feels like and how you fight against it. shame looks different for everyone. for some people. and concealing their hurt and their pain and other people. it's deeper than concealment they may not even really want to ever approached the subject with anyone. who could possibly help them and i think that for me. what i noticed especially in my friend group. was that. there's already so much shame in not being able to if you're not able to fast or illness or like for if you take medication or whatever. it just. the reality just is multiplied for people with eating disorders. and. in regards to shame you know absolutely when people are ashamed what do they
4:38 am
do they hide and you know part of being a part of a community is we don't want people to hide we want people to reach out and be a part of the community and if you are struggling with an eating disorder and you know your community is already making you feel more ashamed by putting that stigma upon you you're not going to reach out you'll back away from the religion and the community and fall deeper into your disorder so in regards to shame it's important that religious communities have open conversations about mental health and wellness and provide alternatives in the form of education and reeducation to. new muslims muslims who have been muslims forever about the alternatives to fasting and really make it explicit that those are just as equal forms of observing ramadan as fasting with food and water i'm. i'm talking so go ahead.
4:39 am
you know i was going to say on the topic those are shame and stigma in the muslim community particularly around mental health and i really wonder how everybody really crocus formed that to argue about is this month and then tired and very much a communal time and because it's such a spiritual in which people really grow kind of together and spiritually. what has hope that sense of isolation particularly people that suffer from mental health conditions often speak of the issue of isolation so it's almost like a double whammy really because you're able to pretty quickly into the community observations or move on in all of its forms and so i really i feel exactly what you said about. and i'm so glad to know we know that the work that we're doing is a war education where we call say what you should in the muslim community
4:40 am
particularly on issues of all mental orders. one of which is eating disorders money what do you think of this i'm just going to show it to you right now it's called the mind of mary and it's an instagram account and there are several actually very helpful ones this is a message to muslims with eating disorders bipolar depression epilepsy schizophrenia o.c.d. extra then it talks about triggers a medication may that may prevent you from fostering but that doesn't make you any less of a muslim then it's talking about fighting your dragons and your battles you are strong you are warriors and there are lots of instagram accounts like this from of them of barrick of then this other one i found as well is that the dealing with this and talking about keeping calm and go see your. how how under me i mean the company one does all when you also show it can be a little bit triggering or it can be incredibly helpful ronnie i can see you
4:41 am
chuckling there that he might see you chuckling about a you go first. sure and the reason it really resonates it to be honest for me is because when i think of mental health conditions i think about how incredibly new the welsh and every person is and i was like prior to us i can tell you firsthand that no two people are the same condition even if there are diagnosed with the same condition which means that in the treatment plan there has to be custom tailored approach to how to actually treat back in vision so what that means in something like a mobile and anything that relates to faith we hope that it personnel aren't useful that they actually are seeking a combined treatment approach which means that they're see in a mental health professional along with iran but just consultants at the two fields are actually speaking to each other as well in trying to get the best care and support and i can't emphasize that enough there's anything that i can you know bring to this discussion out that custom tailored approach that have to happen and
4:42 am
how there has to be openness some don't side to really make the best situation then you enjoying as instagram accounts of what what how do you feel that you can add or advice or tips can you add for obvious he may actually need some advice right now what i noticed is that in one of the comments after the loving a comment that was presented is that how you know the medicine only makes you dependent on it and i find that too many people practice medicine without a license and then give advice and so i would encourage you to go to professionals who can give you you know the i'm never going to sell but not see out that the proper advice because even the prophet peace be upon him to go to specialists to get vice you know on things whether stratagems of of war or dealing with how to go dates and so what so what we have to do is start to not just depend on our friends
4:43 am

to fight. like lightning the way like a spot. twenty one. twenty one exploding. myself. have been. afraid to try things. that's. supposedly grown up. so professional. i think my parents are quite back after that event he patted me when i was you know you believe that you've been claudia was seventy schools were still segregated along racial lines. would you not to go to school to watch older you
4:57 am
know. i acted the way that the eaves feel free to speak the same language day as you do your madam speak the same language. by the time claudia was fourteen a lot of change for her she and her family had moved to a care home for abused children where her father was the principal. as lot about it that goes on in the area is a lot of gunshots you've got to feel are being hijacked. women have a fear of being that i. should also moved schools and have gotten to a private school that specialized in science. at their old school we live in a real science facilities and it's in band of us we've got four labs and me of regular do experiments and i think it's a bit environment. by
4:58 am
twenty one the family had moved again to a comfortable house in the suburbs and claudia had started a science degree at vets university. what i want to do with. some of the first one is the courses you've called road quite the be a doctor so people. i just have a sense of needing to do something and it scares me sometimes because they so there's so much that's. twenty eight she was a junior doctor and pediatrics at the chris hani parable on a hospital in sweater. when you were a student you do talk to patients in but there is a domestic shift when you qualify and you're not responsible for the care of somebody else. her father now runs the university student horse so claudio lives in
4:59 am
the residence on campus. i feel responsible to be of use and to give back. and to try and make a difference because i have had opportunities i mean if there's one person in the family. who's been really well educated. that has implications not just for themselves but for the and i and me. in this were it's a classroom separate was a very student. also suitable school but one. of the really says all right.
5:00 am

5:02 am
maybe a half. but fourteen school had become more of a battleground than a place of learning. machine when my last quote was going to. take one piece. i do trust and sure will never really need to cut closely. but i know who they are idiots. stealing. from fourteen years that. i had to get proper off color was. required us without looking for the two thousand and three saw i had during after it in order to smoke why i had to. get creative.
5:03 am
but sometimes the only number it did if i was. older maybe i would not. put it on then they. are not treated for more now. that i may shortly. you see fit and then the stuff some was to see if all the times. because i'm now full time student i decided to move back home. it's kind of funny that i'm still living at home but to be brutally honest i actually conforte that moment i've been quite lucky in that my father is happy for me to live at home and when need be doesn't mind supporting nutrition now as i'm going to the end of the course and it's kind of i don't have much money left. patrick grew up with
5:04 am

5:06 am
a lot of maritime law. he already knew at fourteen that he had had a good start in life i live in a nice house very nice cool good french and just relaxing and our family. interested in the film like the people in there in this corner camps you know it's interesting to see what their lives are like and how they're different from our look at what we've got around if you have the houses for money. to live in shacks winter they call. it and i feel it just like the basic necessities is not always there for. fourteen years later the gap between rich and poor seems as wide as ever. so if i was kind of on the other side of the fence from where i am i'd be very frustrated what's going on so i can understand. what's happening in africa where people's demands are coming from. see

5:44 am
a plenty for me a lot this out education system. healthcare system. with the lack of political will to change those things for me any said to me but at the same time. such an amazing place all the people i saw amazing the energy. there's so many things that i love about that and. but this also. all these other things that just don't fit in the picture the puzzles now coming together throughout.
5:45 am
how is it the stormy weather that's been around recently in queens and has dissipated the time being that circulation just east of tasmania is really focusing on new zealand so the whole of australia is more or less cloud free for a full cost front of us at least many as a sunshine for temps of all of you very dependent on the wind direction so a bit of a southerly means nineteen in perth but the same in melbourne adelaide too has
5:46 am
warmed up a little bit so we're not doing badly asked because it considers early may but are a nose still possible comes through into south australia keeping adelaide and disappearing south was through victoria i think for wednesday to start bright and probably sunny through yesterday tasmania sees the rain come in and in perth already prepared for you twenty two degrees so the focus seems to be in new zealand always climb tasman sea heading your way so bright and sunny would be the ambitious thing to say and the pictures not looking bad the eighteen degrees in oakland that looks far sixteen down in wellington probably will be cooler further south in the south along but the rain stayed off shore even on wednesday is only just clipping the west coast so i have to say this zone not a cold day is seventeen or eighteen is still rather more cloudy that is sunny.

border and rocket attacks destroyed many homes and lives in gaza and israel four israelis and twenty five palestinians were killed among them two babies and two pregnant women and joshua named reports from west jerusalem. palestinian and israeli families continue to bury their dead as the cease fire took effect on monday morning. almost thirty people were killed during the worst cycle of violence between hamas and israel since the gaza war in two thousand and fourteen. those killed include a four month old baby a man running for cover at a senior hamas commander in london. headed on the scene was a horrible dust was everywhere it was so dark you couldn't see your own hands i was shocked to see a woman laying on the ground and her limbs were everywhere fighters in gaza

launched more than six hundred rockets into israel for its part israel launched air strikes hitting three hundred fifty targets in heavily populated areas of gaza a targeted strike killed a hamas commander in his car. get hamas and israel seemed eager to deescalate the situation quickly. monday was the start of the a sonic fasting month of ramadan this week israeli celebrate their national day and next week people from around the world will travel to tel aviv to see the euro vision music competition. some israelis living near the gaza fence and opposition leaders criticize prime minister benjamin netanyahu for agreeing to the ceasefire if you believe that i think that a cease fire at this moment is a terrible mistake i think that when we have the upper hand we need once and for all finish the terror because this will repeat itself and will not stop. gazans
5:52 am
returning to the rubble of their homes hit by israeli airstrikes were really there was a pause in the violence however temporary the laskar mission between hamas and israel was an april. we hope the war ends because enough destruction enough people are losing their lives in these wars israelis don't distinguish between the civilians and not civilians in the last several years there has been a periodic cycle of violence followed by egyptian mediators negotiating a cease fire and then what's called a return to call how long this call will last will likely depend on israel's willingness to ease the humanitarian situation in gaza and whether hamas abides by its commitment to see these attacks natasha going to. along the israel gaza border . organized. in tel aviv is a columnist for the middle east news site wanted to thanks for being with us what's
5:53 am
your interpretation of why the ceasefire now. well that's a good question the. next one should be when the next wrong and it's not always was mentioned before this is we really do ceasefire because first of all. this was mentioned in the ramadan started and the international community is watching us including. muslim world and the other thing is the israeli independence day and the european context and there was a kind of division of us between the military establishment and the political establishment the in the military day believe in the military. leading officers the
5:54 am
analysts in the army believe that if the government will not treat the problem of gaza the embargo and gaza the suffering of the two million people in no time we will have to deal with another round of violence while the politicians are looking at the contest and the millions of people that will look at us and look at israel next week and these rallies want to celebrate the independence day thursday so if we will not see some progress in the next few days we might see in the next round even before this weekend so i mean what do you think was the original trigger do you think it was that israel wasn't he thinks the terms of the
5:55 am
previous trace. actually this is not only what the hum us is claiming it's also as i mentioned the military establishment were urging the politicians to show some progress in this process as well as the egyptians but there is something else and should be mentioned the same time what we see in the west bank is another crisis that was forgotten and this is the refusal of the palestinian to take the there are revenues of. tax revenues as long as israel is cutting the money that was supposed to go to the prisoner's family and this is a zero sum game between the hamas and the p.l.o. and i think for the hamas this was the right time to sure to claim victory not only over israel but over the p.a.
5:56 am
the palestinian authority and a muslim and to get the attention of the art world and the international community and prove again i that what israel understands in israel is reaching agreements only under fire only when the palestinians showing their strengths they mention that look at trying to get your children to mention the gap between the a political and the military establishment on what the strategy should be if if they do get impression that the political. situation is going to change at all in the next few days or few weeks that would mean that the conditions are different and the six cease fire could last or do you think we are i mean it's just it could it could revert to another cycle of violence before we can but if they can change something could it then last. if there will not be international pressure as well as some pressure from the art world on israel if qatar will keep paying
5:57 am
the hamas instead of israel taking the burden of the occupation we will see another round of violence i think that we can't deal with cancer. just offering aspirin we have two million palestinians in gaza who will start the ramadan with out any access to their families in the west bank let alone israel and to the outside world with no access to a medication and food so it to be in order to stop this cycle of violence is where we have to offer much more than asked period i have to thank you very much indeed for your thoughts thank you. well the
5:58 am
natural world is in more trouble now than at any other time in human history one million animal and plant species on our planet are at risk of extinction and it's our fault a un report says it's because of human activities but agriculture fishing and eating meat life is flickering out in our oceans forty percent of amphibians thirty three percent of corals which form reefs and a third of all marine mammals are at risk of extinction only three percent of marine areas are free from human interference threequarters of all land has been significantly altered by humans turned into farm fields covered by concrete or swallowed up by dam reservoirs or that habitat loss leaves plants and animals like indonesia's tang's homeless in this case due to massive palm oil production and at least ten percent of insects such as bees which are crucial for plant pollination could be lost that puts up to five hundred seventy seven billion dollars worth of crop output at risk as rainforest become desiccated and rivers dry up millions
5:59 am
could be left without adequate food and water but about reports from paris where the u.n. report was released. well this report solely paints a very bleak picture of the world's natural environment just says that people are destroying the planet's vital biodiversity at an unsustainable rate we're talking about mass deforestation oceans that are being depleted of their fish and of their coral land that's been stripped of its nutrients because of over farming and development one million species could be extinct in the next few decades say scientists and they also say that all of this the situation is putting humans at risk we are saying is if we continue of destroying our forests destroying our coal mangroves the way we produce energy in agriculture it will actually undermine in the long term our own human will be it will undermine our ability to produce food
6:00 am
scientists are saying that the main causes for the decline in bio diversity are things like trade agriculture increased consumerism all this is putting more and more pressure on the land and on the oceans even climate change is playing a role speeding up the whole process more they say they hope is that this report will not only raise awareness but it will motivate people governments and businesses and individuals to act i would strongly call on the international community to raise the profile of biodiversity to the level of climate change if not more because we can feel and experience biodiversity decline in all our societies today when a twenty twenty world leaders are expected to meet at a bio diversity called friends and it's expected that they will agree on a rescue plan for major major marine fish stocks are disappearing due to overfishing rising ocean temperatures are also threatening the arctic cold and a fish considered a delicacy around the world from the laverton audience in norway the clock reports
6:01 am
. this is what made norway rich long before oil take cold all scray in them millions filled drying rocks across the lafave denial and went off to win to fishermen here have cashed in on the annual migration south from the barents sea it is a tradition that goes back thousands of year is called his colt it's got it and then it's hold out to dry for several months and what you end up with is a dried fish that retains nearly one hundred percent of its nutrition apprise delicacy from its me to nigeria this is what supplied the vikings on the long voyages to far off lands and still now is a big part of the norwegian economy with millions of dollars to fish comes from the barents sea and its goal is to look for them to spawn. and that's because of the atlantic stream to the left extreme it stops by locals and brings food it brings to
6:02 am
the higher temperature even though it's not warm but despite high enough to spawn it's a very delicate ecosystem. that fragility is spelled talent by a remove scientific research as a changing climate and warmer ocean temperatures upset the balance of the marine ecosystem meaning the scray may be forced out and then it's a question of where they go obviously it keeps things keep warming some of those true polar species might. not have a whole lot of places to go if the ringer computed by sort of these other species moving north. might see some considerable changes there this is a good nielsen cold thirteen thousand kilos of cold it's been a pretty good season but he's worried about the future climate change could change everything. they're called suddenly stopped because they'd be warmer and going a longer and longer north so then being we have
6:03 am
a big program every year is spring comes the called league their return has always been a certainty and in the city not just for the fishermen if the seals see birds and whales that feed on them now this extraordinary feat of nature is under threat the outcome as ever depends on the political will to act in a time of global crisis the clock al-jazeera let's go to night and norway davidson is a marine biologist at university of exeter and a senior scientist with the greenpeace perception of our thanks for being with us so there are some quite alarming statistics in this u.n. report what do you think the most significant element of the reporters. well i think we've known for decades of course that humans are having quite unprecedented impact on species right around the planet i think what this report does pulling together science over many many years from a lot of different sources is gives us a sense of the scale and the severity of that problem i mean the fact that way
6:04 am
through our own actions are bringing to the brink of extinction around a million plants and animals i mean that's a terrifying statistic in itself and i think you've gone through in your report a lot of the other very worrying statistics for the marine environment for example you know one third of fish stocks already completely over fish a third of coral reef some threat i mean these are terrifying statistics but there is something that really things have to change and they have to change fast if we're going to begin to reverse those declines and so the suggestion is that there is still time to to do to reverse it to him is that enough will he think. i think we'll see what will there is amongst governments in the next months and years to come when we look at climate change as an issue of course that took decades to get action and we're still a long way behind where we need to be i think we simply don't have the luxury of
6:05 am
a lot of time for that political will to emerge and one thing that comes from the reports of the statement again and again that talked about by the authors is the need for transformational change so this isn't going to be about tweaking a few things perhaps you know refocusing fishing efforts in different areas it's actually got to be a fundamental look at the way in which we're using resources on this planet and to bring about far greater listed approach and far greater balance due to what we're doing because all of these things are linked it's the the loss of biodiversity is not in some way just another thing we have to worry about alongside climate change it's all linked together and what that means is if we can find solutions to tackling lots of biodiversity we're also finding solutions to tackling climate change as well these things are linked together and you mentioned the solutions that are there any that are already available and that you think should be property . there are in fact some things that are very very simple to do and introducing and
6:06 am
expanding areas that we've put under protection marine protected areas for example these are incredibly valuable tools for tackling climate change protecting stores of carbon those natural stores of carbon in the in the oceans and in coastal areas and they also have neutral benefits for species diversity and of course you know where reliant as a species on the services that those ecosystems present so yes it's a problem of the huge scale but the solutions that work that are there some of them very readily available what is needed is a strong. will track my governments and we're hoping that this message with a very strong science base behind it is going to be the thing that really tips the balance now in favor of governments taking action to stop this decline in biodiversity they were sent here thank you very much indeed for taking the time
6:07 am
toward us out there thank you coming up on this news hour from london. schools homes and hospitals destroyed dozens of civilians dead after a week of airstrikes a one on one of syria's deescalation zones. a fuel tanker overturns and explodes in the jazz capital killing at least fifty eight people. and in sport the kenyan running champion i mean to hit a time target many believe is impossible. turkey's election board says it will hold a rerun of the merrill vote in istanbul a decision the main opposition has described as quote plain dictatorship a new election will be held on june the twenty third after the act party president . challenge the original results which have now been out the vote in march sawyer
6:08 am
party lose control of istanbul to the republican people's party for the first time in twenty five years. who is live for us in istanbul reason of a given for ordering this rerun. well learn to how your other turold board said that the reason was based on the grounds that the that some of the ballot box officers were not civil servants according to turkey's electoral law. the ballot box officers should be is civil workers civil employees or either employees of five banks four of which are public banks and depending on that directorial board said that the balloting balloting committee has actions against the regulation and they filed a criminal complaint against those ballots in committees this is the reason this is the excuse they have presented in a written statement but however the main opposition party and some low expert law
6:09 am
experts argue that the names of the ballot box officers about in committees are already announced three months prior to elections and turkey and those names are being approved by the electoral boards by political parties and those names go through security background check by the turkish authorities so if there was a problem with those names if those were names critical or criminal why did you why did you reject those names on time this is a question that they have been asking the man who won the election has been speaking what does he say. it clever more morally sound the mayor his mandate has been immediately canceled after the hieratic toral board's decision and no. stumble elections which is postponed to. which is going to be done over actually on june twenty three his his speech was mild actually he said that they earned it he
6:10 am
earned this result and he was confident confident that a he won the election but he didn't make any calls for street protests or other things he said that my people are with me and we will be going through this we are going through this well we'll be working together and it's going to be through democracy we will keep embracing everyone and he seemed confident that he's he he wants to win and he will win. in june however our party spokesperson also had a press statement following. who and he said that we wanted to clear all the doubts about the selection and we want a clear result and the new results which is going to come up in june will be walkin by us whether whether they lose or they win he said that they didn't want to be citizens what's to be wasted and this was the statement by our party so in course
6:11 am

a tactic in previous offensives it is to make life unbearable for the people. about the aims to depopulate the area force people to leave that's the first step so that their regime can advance on the ground but they don't have the helm a lot of the area under fire is within what was supposed to be a demilitarized zone agreed between russia and turkey as part of the cease fire deal the offensive does not appear to be a full assault across the rebel held province the focus seems to be on controlling the m four and m five international highways that connect the provinces of lot of hama and aleppo. the roads pass through it lib mainly the towns of just the show who are so dark and modern norman to achieve that goal pro-government forces need to advance north into the planned buffer zone where the turkish military has observation posts was all this area turkey's.
6:13 am
just overlooked so there's going to be a lot of costs even now in the future between turkey and russia the church and us if the u.s. and russia if everybody will stay in this area the way they're going right now. works a lot more costs in france or behind you. this is how serious stakeholders have negotiated in the past two years military pressure has and continues to be used fighting is escalating but at the same time turkish officials say they are in talks with russia concerning the deployment of their forces in syria turkey wants russia's approval to move into areas under the control of the kurdish y p g not just in northern aleppo but east of the euphrates as well russia for its part wants its allies to use the highways and lead to revive trade.

7:50 am
rained down on gaza and southern israel the worst escalation of violence since the war in twenty fourteen twenty five palestinians were killed that includes a fourteen month old child and two pregnant women and four israelis were killed as well despite the cease fire israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu says this is not the end of the campaign and he has instructed the military to be prepared for more fighting by my one introduction. in the past days we have renewed our policy of assassinating terrorist commanders we killed dozens of hamas and islamic jihad terrorists and we toppled terror towers we have changed the rules of the game and hamas understands this well at the same time it's clear that this is not the end of the campaign and therefore i have instructed the military to be prepared going forward. and all the palestinian prime minister is appealing to the united nations to intervene you want the clock was flooded you wouldn't. we are hoping that this
7:51 am
will lead to an end to the tragedy against our people and preserve their lives we call upon the united nations to stop the israeli aggression against our people and to provide international protection to our people in the gaza strip and so those are the main political players let's hear now from our correspondent going to him on the israel gaza border and. palestinian and israeli families continue to bury their dead as the cease fire took effect on monday morning. almost thirty people were killed during the worst cycle of violence between hamas and israel since the gaza war in two thousand and fourteen. those killed include a four month old baby a man running for cover and a senior hamas commander in london. headed on the scene was a horrible dust was everywhere it was so dark you couldn't see your own hands i was shocked to see a woman laying on the ground and her limbs were everywhere fighters in gaza
7:52 am
launched more than six hundred rockets into israel for its part israel launched air strikes hitting three hundred fifty targets it heavily populated areas of gaza a targeted strike killed a hamas commander in his car. get hamas and israel seemed eager to deescalate the situation quickly. monday was the start of the a sonic fasting month of ramadan this week israeli celebrate their national day and next week people from around the world will travel to tel aviv to see the euro vision music competition. some israelis living near the gaza fence and opposition leaders criticize prime minister benjamin netanyahu for agreeing to the cease fire if you look at the illegal i think that a cease fire at this moment is a terrible mistake i think that when we have the upper hand we need once and for all finish the terror because this will repeat itself and will not stop. gazans
7:53 am
returning to the rubble of their homes hit by israeli airstrikes were relieved there was a pause in the violence however temporary the laskar mission between hamas and israel was an april. moment have been killed and we hope the war ends because enough destruction enough people are losing their lives in these wars israelis don't distinguish between the civilians and not civilians in the last several years there has been a periodic cycle of violence followed by egyptian mediators negotiating a cease fire and then what's called a return to call how long this call will last will likely depend on israel's willingness to ease the humanitarian situation in gaza and whether hamas abides by its commitment to see these attacks natasha going to aim. along the israel gaza border. we've got phyllis bennis to talk about this now director of the new
7:54 am
internationalism project of the institute for policy studies in washington d.c. it's always nice to see you. phyllis. what strikes me and i'm sure a struck you as well and anyone looking at that nothing changes it is the same situation of an uptick in five seeing a hastily arranged it lasts for a little while. it's that at least in the short term could break this cycle. what could break this cycle would be an end to the extraordinary repression under which the two million residents of gaza are living i think we have to be very careful in looking at this incident as if it was separate from what came before much of the press in the united states begins their coverage with the palestinian rockets that were fired against israel which of course are in fact a violation of international law but they don't talk about what happened the day before when four more palestinians were killed in the march to the fence in gaza
7:55 am
the fact that three percent only of gaza's little bit of water is drink of all ninety seven percent is not drink a bill that the united nations says that gaza will not be inhabitable in twenty twenty these are the realities that people in gaza live with every day which the israelis call a calm until there is some price to be paid by israelis so i think that we have to be very careful in recognizing that this is a much broader process that has been underway for a very long time and your point is exactly the right one that this is a very a very short moment when there may be this cease fire the last cease fire that was agreed to in april negotiated by the by the egyptians or brokered by the egyptians in that case the israelis had agreed to allow money from qatar to be used to come into gaza to pay for the civil service workers and to allow the gaza fishermen to go further out into the ocean neither of those commitments were met so gazans are
7:56 am
still faced with the horrifying conditions of their ordinary lives even before this kind of an escalation you're absolutely right to point out the big picture there and a lot of just we've spoken to have said this is the thing it's all the underlying issues which need to be dealt with however they have not been dealt with for well over a decade and. there seems to be absolutely no sign that israel would want to deal with them and i think that's the key actually want to deal with it seems to be in israel's interest just to keep the status quo. i think that's absolutely right the claim that the status quo is not sustainable is simply not true on the israeli side it is quite sustainable and when you have the the green light given from president trump who said we support israel we stand with israel israel has the right of self-defense period full stop no call for a deescalation nothing simply standing with israel no matter what they do no matter what violations of international law the the geneva conventions prohibitions on
7:57 am
collective punishment all of that is a complete violation of international law and to to not even call for a a deescalation is an indication to the prime minister of israel and the far right of his cabinet because remember this is now a cabinet where netanyahu is almost the left wing of his cabinet because it goes from his right wing party to the far right the extreme right and now with the jewish power part of the coalition the fascist right they are calling for more military attacks and too many people inside israel have been taught to think about it that way as if it's going to make their lives better so what you've sort of pointed out there is all the players who won't do anything about it israel won't do anything the united nations is doing very little and it would probably really at the most just condemn things the united states isn't going to do anything of the support of israel so who is going to do something is there another international
7:58 am
player out there who could do something. well i think first of all it's a mistake to say that the u.n. will only condemn i think the u.n. has played a role and will continue to play a role in pushing egypt to to act as an interlocutor between the israelis and the hamas leadership in gaza i assume that's probably already under way and i also think we have to be careful not to say the u.s. won't do anything the u.s. support for israel is what enables the israeli violations to continue as long as there is no pressure from the united states the government of israel will have no reason to think that there is international pressure that anyone cares about their violations of international law it's the u.s. military political and economic aid that three point eight billion dollars a year of my tax money that goes directly to the israeli military without any strings attached without any demand that they not violate international law there
7:59 am
is for the first time a a resolution pending in the u.s. house of representatives calling for making sure that that money is not used for military arrest of children which is a ongoing problem in the west bank of palestinian children but that has not yet passed and right now there is no limitation put on the israeli military for how it uses that three point eight billion dollars a year that the united states provides for this purpose it is always a pleasure talking to you thanks for making the time for us today thanks very much . here's what's coming up for you on this news first new tariffs and then accusations of back tracking us china trade talks are in turmoil i'll have a live update on that. part of syria that was supposed to be a safe zone but it's now seen the worst violence there in more than six months and the sport manchester city now just one win away from clinching the second

8:04 am
a statement now we should keep in mind that the iranian president hassan rouhani is the head of this council and so it is very much a statement being made under his administration in this statement it reads that bolton lacks a military and security understanding his comments are mostly for show based on the accurate monitoring of iran's armed forces the aircraft carrier abraham lincoln entered the mediterranean sea twenty one days ago and his statement is just for psychological war it goes on to say that it is unlikely the commanders of the u.s. armed forces want to test the capabilities of iran's armed forces now there's a couple of things happening here the iranians see this move as purely psychological not an actual military decision to make some sort of action against iran and they're calling the united states out on it saying this is psychological warfare and they're sending a message to the iranian people in this statement suggesting at the end of it that not even american commanders have faith in the u.s.

national security advisor people don't have to worry about what is simply a move for symbolic purposes and this pure psychological warfare. spoke about the situation in venezuela once again warned moscow against supporting the embattled president nicolas maduro lavrov said u.s. support for the opposition is illegal under international law all. use of force could only be sanctioned by the u.n. security council or force can be used in response to aggression against a sovereign state and we can't see anything like this in venezuela or my contacts with american european and lend american colleagues i can't find any who support a reckless military solution and i hope that this understanding that everyone has will turn into practical policies and that there won't be any military solution because it would be catastrophic. the united states is accusing china of backtracking on its promises a day after president obama trump said he would impose new tariffs on chinese goods

watching this over the last few weeks and ever and what have you we're getting the indication that we could be reaching close to a deal and these talks that were planned here in washington later this week were expected to potentially be the last talks before the final trade deal was signed will now everything seems to be unraveling with the u.s. side basically saying that china has reneged rein remaking on their trade talks commitments not giving any specifics though on exactly what the chinese want change but clearly it's a big deal because over the weekend we saw president shrimp tweeting potential threats of possible new tariffs against china and everyone was wondering what's that about well now we know clearly over the weekend according to the u.s. side talks took a dramatic turn for the worst now the talks were supposed to continue on when. stay here in washington with about one hundred person trade delegation from china coming over to the u.s. they're still going to be going on but it looks like they're going to be pushed
8:08 am
back starting now on thursday another key point here is that these new tariffs going from ten to twenty five percent on two hundred billion dollars of imported goods from china they are supposed to kick into effect starting at work twelve midnight and one twelve midnight and one in one am basically on friday morning so these are no longer just threats these are now going to be moving forward unless a deal is worked out before them and wouldn't mind if you could just a little more broader context of people who might not be completely off on the whole story of china a u.s. tariffs on the try deals basically just how important this is and how how wide reaching the effects could be of any trade deal. yes donald trump he has for many many years long before he became president he's always thought that the u.s. was getting a bad deal with china trade that he repealed very strongly about this personally so
8:09 am
this is one of his key issues that he wanted to push forward and he feels very strongly and this is why for months now china and the u.s. have been trying to negotiate a new trade deal there's all sorts of technical aspects to it but key issues are technology transfer and stealing of technology these are things like when u.s. companies go to work in china china is basically saying according the u.s. hey you can come over here you can get access to the chinese market but we're going to get all your intellectual property these are all things that donald trump thinks that are wrong and so this is been going on for a long time these negotiations trying to hammer out this new trade deal trade deal the trumpet says it's going to be a historic deal but in the meantime there's a tit for tat tariff battle going on and it's basically intern into a trade war at this point between the world's two biggest economies and you're going to see the effects in the stock market so far the u.s. economy is still doing really well chinese economy it's not quite doing quite so
8:10 am
well but this could have major ramifications later this week if these talks completely break down again the world's two largest economies in this trade war good stuff that really is on the in washington thank you for that early a china that it's team is still preparing to head to the u.s. though for those these negotiations three to medieval clothes on i think the top priority now is that the u.s. and china could work together and meet each other half white and i can see spiced on me. that being a puts party which is not only in line with the interests of china and the u.s. but also makes the expectation of the international community i keeping an eye on things from beijing now major and brown. well on monday a spokesman for china's foreign ministry confirmed that the chinese side is preparing to take part in resumed talks in washington on wednesday what is not clear though is whether those talks will involve the chinese vice premier lou her
8:11 am
who's been leading the chinese negotiating team since these talks these discussions began more than ten months ago once these talks if these talks resume in washington on wednesday they will be the eleventh round of negotiations and this remember is supposed to be the week when the two sides inked a deal that brings a resolution to this festering dispute but on sunday night a tweet by president donald trump warning that he was prepared to slap new tariffs on chinese products was enough to send stock markets in chen zen and shanghai plummeting in the case of shanghai it was the biggest fall in more than three years president donald trump is clearly concerned that the chinese side is playing for time he suspects there's a bit of backpedaling and what the u.s. side wants it seems is a deal with real teeth to prevent any further backpedaling by the chinese what this
8:12 am
is all going to come down to in the end is how this deal is enforced and china is saying that if there is a deal it wants those tariffs that the united states has so far imposed on chinese goods to be lifted but the u.s. side is continuing to say that cannot happen. now turkey's election authority has canceled the results of its stumbles mayoral election state media is reporting election officials have ordered a rerun of the vote which saw the candidate of the main opposition party the c.h.p. installed as the city's mayor at the end of march president earlier ones ak party had controlled the commercial capital for fifteen years voters in istanbul returned to the polls on the twenty third of june now a spokesman for turkey's president has called the rerun a victory for democracy so in course he only has more now from istanbul turkey cyrix turold board said that the decision behind the and moment of his stumble mayoral elections is that some of the ballot box officers were not civil servants
8:13 am
according to turkey's electoral law about box officers should be civil servants and also the electoral board stated that balloting committees some of their actions were against the regulation that's why they filed a criminal complaint against the balloting committee however the main opposition and some low experts say that the ballot box officers names all those names are listed three months prior to the elections in turkey and the names are listed. publicly so the names are approved by the electoral district tora bora supposed to go parties and the names go through security background check by the security officials in turkey so they now argue why the electoral board had such a decision right now stumbles stumble mayor rahm immoral the main opposition candidate his mandate has been cancelled immediately after a tour of board's decision for the end moment and then he made

all finish the terror because this will repeat itself and will not stop. gazans returning to the rubble of their homes hit by israeli airstrikes were relieved there was a pause in the violence however temporary the laskar mission between hamas and israel was an april. we hope the war ends because enough destruction enough people are losing their lives in these wars israelis don't distinguish between the civilians and not civilians in the last several years there has been a periodic cycle of violence followed by egyptian mediators negotiating a cease fire and then what's called a return to call how long this call will last will likely depend on israel's willingness to ease the humanitarian situation in gaza and whether hamas abides by its commitment to see these attacks natasha going aim. along the israel gaza border
8:54 am
. last hour we spoke to finesse banus who is the director of the new internationalism project at the institute for policy studies in washington and she says despite the ceasefire palestinians in gaza will still be living in poor conditions. what could break this cycle would be an end to the extraordinary repression under which the two million residents of gaza are living i think we have to be very careful in looking at this incident as if it was separate from what came before much of the press in the united states begins their coverage with the palestinian rockets that were fired against israel which of course are in fact a violation of international law but they don't talk about what happened the day before when four more palestinians were killed in the march to the to the fence in gaza the fact that three percent only of gaza's little bit of water is drink a bowl ninety seven percent is not drink that the united nations says that gaza will not be inhabitable in twenty twenty these are the reality is that people in
8:55 am
gaza live with every day which the israelis call a calm until there is some price to be paid by israelis so i think that we have to be very careful in recognizing that this is a much broader process that has been underway for a very long time this is a very. very short moment when there may be this cease fire the last cease fire that was agreed to in april negotiated by the by the egyptians or brokered by the egyptians in that case the israelis had agreed to allow money from qatar to be used to come into gaza to pay for the civil service workers and to allow the gaza fishermen to go further out into the ocean neither of those commitments were met so gazans are still faced with the horrifying conditions of their ordinary lives even before this kind of an escalation. to other news and turkey's election of thor's he has canceled the results of its stumbles mayoral election officials of awarded to a rerun of the vote which saw the candidate from the main opposition party the

8:57 am
and some low experts say that the ballot box officers names all those names are listed three months prior to the elections in turkey and the names are listed. publicly so the names are approved by delicto or district tora bora supposed to go parties and the names go through security background check by the security officials in turkey so they now argue why the electoral board had such a decision right now stumbles stumble mayor. the main opposition candidate his mandate has been cancelled immediately after the torah board's decision for the end moment and then he made a speech he was he was called more than expected he said that he won the elections he. earned elections as with his party and as long as he has the support from the people from the citizens he will continue and he said that the ruling party wants

8:59 am
following reaction from tehran for a same bus ride. they've certainly taken their time and that in the past has been seen as a signal of trying to lessen the significance of us moves being taken against them now that we do have a statement it seems to be a personal attack on john bolton the spokesman for the supreme national security council cave on coast. issued a statement now we should keep in mind that the iranian president hassan rouhani is the head of this council and so it is very much a statement being made under his administration in this statement it reads that bolton lacks a military and security understanding his comments are mostly for show based on the accurate monitoring of iran's armed forces the aircraft carrier abraham lincoln entered the mediterranean sea twenty one days ago and his statement is just for psychological war it goes on to say that it is unlikely the commanders of the u.s. armed forces want to test the capabilities of iran's armed forces now there's a couple of things happening here the iranians see this move as purely
9:00 am
psychological not an actual military decision to make some sort of action against iran and they're calling the united states out on it saying this is psychological warfare and they're sending a message to the iranian people in this statement suggesting at the end of it that not even american commanders have faith in the u.s. national security adviser so ronnie and people don't have to worry about what is simply a move for symbolic purposes and is pure psychological warfare. also discuss the situation in venezuela the u.s. secretary of state again warned. against supporting the embattled president nicolas maduro. meanwhile lavrov said u.s. support for the opposition is illegal under international law. use of force could only be sanctioned by a u.n. security council or force can be used in response to aggression against a sovereign state we can't see anything like this in venezuela or my contacts with american european and lend american colleagues i can't find any who support

9:05 am
a day after president donald trump said he would impose new tariffs on chinese goods the u.s. is expected to raise tariffs to twenty five percent from two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese products on friday. trump's announcement came just two days before representatives from both countries are scheduled to resume their trade to top. let's explore this a little more with gabriel is on though in washington exactly what is the u.s. accusing china of here as far as backtracking goes. yeah we wish that we were able to get a little bit more information on exactly what the americans are accusing the chinese but the americans just simply are saying these are talks that are behind closed doors of course the media is not allowed inside any of these discussions and so we just have to kind of glean from what we can get from what an official's tell us when they come out of this and all they're saying is that the chinese after what they thought were successful talks in china last week over the weekend according to
9:06 am
u.s. trade representative robert lighthouse are and treasury secretary steve minutiae in the two heads of the leading the u.s. delegation in these talks they said over the weekend something went really bad with the talks and that they're accusing china every negative on some of the written agreements that they had come up with and when asked how significant this is they said they used the words substantive and substantial changes that the chinese want so this is appearance lee threatening to completely de rail these trade talks at a critical moment when a lot of people thought this week when the talks moved to washington they were thinking this could be the last part of it and then they could reach a deal this week well now we're facing this and it's important to note now that these are not just threats on this twenty five percent raising the tears to twenty five percent on two hundred million dollars to two hundred billion dollars of
9:07 am
chinese imports not just threats. lighthouse or says that the u.s. is going to start filing the paperwork on tuesday and they have a hard date on when these terrorists will go into effect he says it will be midnight on a friday morning that as the trade talks with the chinese are set to kick off here in washington thursday so essentially there's you have this these looming tariffs as both sides are going to be sitting down again in washington to try to hammer this out but boy this was an unexpected turn of events i can tell you and now it appears that these trade talks could very much be in jeopardy between the two or holds two biggest economies ok thank you for all of that kaberle elizondo in washington the battle for libya's capital is taking a toll on people's lives as they enter the holy month of ramadan many shops are closed businesses are struggling as the campaign by the ward khalifa haftar to

remember it is isolate claimed responsibility for the attacks. we are told that life on earth is in decline with more species threatened with extinction than at any time in history it's us who is to blame it's part of the findings of a un agency responsible for assessing the state of our planet almost five hundred experts working together over three years they say the destruction of natural habitats cutting down trees climate change pollution plundering the land in the sea these are all major drivers of the decline and we're the ones doing it around a million plants and animal species facing extinction many within decades if we do not act the report's authors though insist the decline can be slowed could even be stopped in some cases but it will require that global commitment to make some change the french president emanuel micron's is the u.n. report on biodiversity impels drastic global change to did you continue as
9:14 am
you continue to live our life by accepting changes in our habits and questioning ourselves this is what we need to do in each of our countries it is never easy and it does not come naturally because it creates difficulties the pressures and anxieties but then we will help different actors and citizens to create this transitional that what this report said he paints a very bleak picture of the world's natural environment just says that people are destroying the planet vital biodiversity at an unsustainable rate we're talking about mass deforestation oceans that are being depleted of their fish and of their coral land that's been stripped of its nutrients because over farming and deferment one million species could be extinct in the next few decades say scientists they also say that all of this the situation is putting humans at risk what we are saying is if we continue of destroying our forests destroying our mangroves the way we produce energy in agriculture it will actually undermine in the long term our
9:15 am
own human will be it will. the minor ability to produce food scientists are saying that the main causes for the decline in bio diversity are things like trade i grow culture increased consumerism all this is putting more and more pressure on the land and on the oceans even climate change is playing a role speeding up the whole process and what they say they hope is that this report will not only raise awareness but it will motivate people governments and businesses and individuals to act i would strongly call on the international community to raise the profile of biodiversity to the level of climate change if not more because we can feel and experience biodiversity decline in all our societies today one of twenty twenty world leaders are expected to meet at a biodiversity called friends and it's expected that they will agree on a rescue plan for nature when i look at fish species in particular because these

9:22 am
hello and welcome to the program i'm richelle carey in the past decade thousands of eritreans looking to improve their lives in europe have become stranded in libya detained during the early goal trance or rescued from drowning the mediterranean refugees are sent to detention centers but the battle for control of the capital tripoli has left them exposed to the dangers of war and going in days without food the united nations high commissioner for refugees has intervened and relocated migrants to safer areas all sending some to other countries among them a group of one hundred fifty nine eritrean nationals were sent to his chair before being relocated to a third country and that has not gone down well with eritrea's government the foreign ministry some of the u.n.h.c.r. are presented of to protest against the action and the minister of information eman mesko issued a statement on twitter saying this the u.n.h.c.r. is latest act has no rationale or basis and law and amplifies its harmful
9:23 am
eligibility guidelines which require require that is urgent rectification fifty eritreans have. termed home voluntarily from libya in the past few weeks while another eighteen are scheduled to arrive before we get to our discussion let's take a look back at the country eritrea it was part of the larger federation of ethiopia until one nine hundred ninety three that here eritreans voted for independence and joined the united nations becoming africa's newest state at the time but by nineteen ninety eight relations with ethiopia soured tearing a dispute over shared borders that led to two years of conflict in which one hundred thousand people were killed years of fighting and instability have hurt eritrea's agricultural economy making it one of africa's poorest nations united nations estimates that hundreds of thousands have since left for europe searching for a better life. let's bring
9:24 am
our guest now into the conversation in london suliman hussein chairman of citizens for a democratic rights in eritrea and in nairobi to say a tech play researcher for the horn of africa for amnesty international gentleman thank you very much for your time so on what grounds is eritrea making this demand that they say they want their citizens back. thank you. it is not entirely clear to me on what grounds the written government is me in this to months and it is not necessarily. a negative thing in itself but this is a question of this return is did not suddenly come to the surface really and israel is have been in libya for a number of years more than ten years and the region government has been always
9:25 am
silent about the suffering of the citizens in libya in scene i and elsewhere and the military man so this sudden interest in the lives of or conditions of little citizens is not entirely clear to me but i hope it's not just for the political consumption and to see your recollection have they ever done something like this before. to my recollection that interim government has totally ignored. the exodus of the written youngsters their current government knows perfectly why this and that is our credit where it's because of the high level of preferable for oppression inside the country it's because of the indefinite national service or the military service it's because of the unlikely with the few million see the has been going on in eritrea it is
9:26 am
because of all these things that a lot of more than three hundred according to mr maritz of things there is left the country in the last ten years and this is the first time there isn't a government. actually expresses interest in the conditions of the returns even in libya. mimo the further on this like a couple of years ago. somewhere or even a slaughtered by by isis we didn't hear any out of condemnation within see any attempt from the regional government to reign to repatriate its citizens when every other car if you can country was showing interest rate it is of citizeness most of it as were captured by the human traffickers there are a lot of stories of rape of. the free and the treatment of the hundreds of. dancers in libya is very on human traffickers this is the first time that in
9:27 am
government is show in this kind of interest is. one can only guess why but it's probably i believe probably the do the changes in the horn of africa if i could return government probably is feeling like a south right there except i want to pick up on that point in just a moment the first i want to put a similar question to say at the say what is what do you make of this interest that eritrea is now expressing and its citizens that have fled. i'm. still a month has already paid it's not clear pfizer government these days is showing that i see the fascination of a free hand to the contrary i just pick a lot of time that's the right time in the sciences where. certified and a few g.'s and asylum seekers have been retired before some time before i was over two or three i was rather retarded. yeah
9:28 am
from the media. but this is free she granted i got out of my complaining again as united nations gun. refire a thing for. relocating to air france maybe add to nigeria is something i'm president there may be so many speculations about that's that's a government was in north korea one speculation is that their own government is trying to put itself on a lot of great sacrifice human rights organization human rights claim to be. their last crime line yet. i am. as you may know that if it has become a member of. my right policy at the un and that promoting themselves that some of my friends of. mine expect it to be bad. i'm going to.
9:29 am
i can see that if you do. a thing as well you have to imagine that. because our. public. advertisements are ok like press like to say to themselves that's human rights rightly. so let me ask you this. so if we as we reported at the top of the show found eritreans are voluntarily returned whole but does. eritrea having a legal right to this demand that people be returned to them i mean i realize are publicly pushing the issue but do they legally have a leg to stand on. that must not stand up and if you don't stand a nearly bought bridge into. good should always be born and. it's not the consideration of the state of origin which modern it is not the
9:30 am
concern of the state of. ontario for reasons of my god it is. violence that is a constant of the people to be returned. even if it is but i have complained right and also that this should be defeated should be rethought meant. decommission should follow saw should follow always is the consent of the people. summa what will happen to these people that have returned what do you believe they face when they get back to eritrea. there is a history i think it would be. important to remind ourselves of some basic fact this. in two thousand and two. were deported forcibly and it's a migrant or asylum seekers promoter and the international has reported that they
9:31 am
have been kept incommunicado and suffered systematic torture and they're also been instances where. some return refugees were deported from egypt at the same fate many of them are actually died some of the middle of the country again so the the history of repatriation of course the department to is. is not in favor of the recent government what i believe the written government should do rather now is to change the condition is that led to these people fleeing the country because we seem to forget that these are not some sort of economic migrants these are people who fled the country because of human rights violation because the open ended national service because of the repressive policies of the government in that area now is the situation back on
9:32 am
changes i believe many of them with the interim we go back to an affair without even the government demanding it but as to the the. blame game between the unity are. there and government i'm not sure why it one of the speculation could be what this has just said because it's now a member of the. human rights council but we also know that in the early ninety's when there are three or when it's them independence we had our more than half a million eritrean refugees and they were not repatriated to israel although they express an interest. too about the home areas but they were merely the majority of them are still reason shouldn't cause there was some sort of this agreement between the government of india and the. i want to bring. someone else into the conversation now below a chief executive officer of m b r networks it's a media company we appreciate you coming into this conversation and the question
9:33 am
that i want to put to you is there are reports that some of the new recruits to eritrea's national service have been told that in the future they were only be asked to serve eighteen months as opposed to this unlimited time with a really big giving up their lives which is a reason a lot of them have been fleeing that's not official yet but do you think that that is a possibility that that is something that could change in the country. where you know the it sounds to be a better man. these are the constitution but every cheer is going through a very special time since it opened up a little bit by signing a peace agreement with. ethiopia so there is a feeling that. things should change faster and more authority and so sometimes some kind of reforms are not enough anymore people really
9:34 am
want to transform mission they want. really things to change totally so. i don't think we still see people fleeing and because the system had not change really and that what people expect. the there was a lot of hope that the peace agreement we fit europea will contribute to interior internal change but so far. people are sitting on the fence and waiting why was that opportunity not see. is that that that moment of hope that glimmer of hope that people had why why did that not change and eritrea well if you won't change saul quickly so easily you know that was a very weird system every tria we know of dictatorial system all over africa we know of authoritarian system of system where the constitution is not running
9:35 am
where really but the kind of system where you have a draft people spending young people spending lag twenty years in national service people paying taxes on their salary when even while abroad if they want to maintain sort of a good relationship with the country you know the the kind of things which happen they are just so. unprecedented you don't see that everywhere and where you have a head of state would never goes out practically you don't seem at the u.n. at the united at the african union summits you're really a very secretary of country is is very special so they have built up a system which. will probably change because you know you never know when when you are sort of a frozen country and and something happens like
9:36 am
a little opening up you know you don't know how far i can go so we need and nothing is impossible as start as soon as you start change maybe there will be . created sort of a dynamic where it goes faster that what you want but or it goes deeper that what you intended in the first place but now is only a few months into into the change i mean the yes reman with the opiah. in the geopolitics you have change a lot of families a different for jobs of this book into. it's more difficult to to know if a sailor may bring you into this if if in fact this unlimited national service if there were a limit were going to be put on it perhaps this eighteen months that some recruits say they have been told would that be a fundamental shift a fundamental change in the way things work in eritrea could that be
9:37 am
a corner turned in some way. yes. and it's natural for national service. a good place to start. a generation of. ninety nine nine hundred ninety years has been. because of. his. national sort of this proclamation. since two thousand one. way
9:38 am
politics is being run by the president. we called. them as they call the for reform they. are going to speak to be implemented but the response from the government. to get a read. you talking about when things started. people have been in prison in two thousand and one. and. these religious leaders have been in prison for a long time and they have been. they have not been. to prison by any part of. life and now we don't know if that. given the situation.
9:39 am
the government has to leave these people oh it. is a kind of fate they have to disclose what happened ok let me. get out of so many people who have been in prison for a long time we not simply those high profile people those people have to be in these girls ok and so that point it's difficult as you all know to actually get firm numbers on that but there are some international organizations that say that there may be as many as fourteen thousand people and military prisons alone sumanda what does eritrea actually face any external pressure to change anything. i'm not sure of the external pressure but there is a lot of internal pressure building as we speak now. the indefinite national service the only just occasion given by the editor and authority of so far was the
9:40 am
no year no war no peace situation between the israel and egypt air and that war. coming in at any time that if your which is the huge country to the saudis is a separate the national security of your affair and the government was in this way it needed to keep those youngsters and indefinite money are now one of this. situation as come to an end. and. our number two are but rather the seem to be friends know and the and that it is not suffering in the international section sanctions anymore they did the public including those who are in support of the government are putting a lot of pressure even from the ranks of the government itself that it needs. without any for the delay to come to normalcy to implement concision to implement
9:41 am
busy rule of law and integrate into the international community once again and to to accept this the people of its citizens who have the rights and have the right to have a say in the running of the country ok or is it to be the sit with the political situation in the area has to come to an end ok i. have the last word on this you said a moment ago that there that there was hope why what do you think the turning point could be for there to be a change in eritrea as you mentioned there was hope that perhaps sort of normalizing relations with ethiopia could be the difference what do you think the difference can be. if you mention about the. excellent pressure i don't believe in it at all because we see how every chair has we could withstand fresh air for four decades so that's not a point i think what the external world could be could do is to
9:42 am
a knowledge every positive step they are doing and really to make change attractive and i think immigration from ethiopia which has been. improving relationship you know doing bold moves towards it they've retreated to two woods a position towards i mean internal peace and you see how the international community reacts to that i think that's the kind of interaction it could do with every trip like this thing with the draft being limited restricted to eighteen months like. even how the accepted to end war and and and a to make peace with with. i think internally it would help them. let's say release the.
9:43 am
yes let's say the grip on the system you know this repression which has been now a second habit i think it's this positive look at a rich area and and encouraging their leaders to to change and say yes you are on the right path and if you do so we are we are willing to help and and they are saying to boycott or sure that you are bad people but to we we we we want to help and you are yourself you are making the power you're saying they secularism china should come from you so you're. they're saying basically wait for one ok a cry thank you miss they're below and thank you to all of our guests for joining us suleman to say the say a tech lay and marie below and thank you for watching as well you can see the

palestinian and israeli families continue to bury their dead as the cease fire took a fact on monday morning. almost thirty people were killed during the worst cycle of violence between hamas and israel since the gaza war in two thousand and fourteen. those killed include a four month old baby a man running for cover and a senior hamas commander in london. just headed on the scene was a horrible dust was everywhere it was so dark you couldn't see your own hands i was shocked to see a woman laying on the ground and her limbs were everywhere fighters in gaza launched more than six hundred rockets into israel for its part israel launched air strikes hitting three hundred fifty targets it heavily populated areas of gaza a targeted strike killed a hamas commander in his car. get him us and israel seemed eager to deescalate the
9:50 am
situation quickly. monday was the start of the a sonic fasting month of ramadan this week israeli celebrate their national day and next week people from around the world will travel to tel aviv to see the euro vision music competition. some israelis living near the gaza fence and opposition leaders criticize prime minister israelis don't distinguish between the civilians and not civilians in the last several years there has been a periodic cycle of violence followed by egyptian mediators negotiating a cease fire and then what's called a return to call how long this call will last will likely depend on israel's willingness to ease the humanitarian situation in gaza and whether hamas abides by its commitment to see these attacks natasha going aim. along the israel gaza border

9:53 am
how in just twenty years they've completely changed the way i live and communicate . our devices are sleek and elegant. we store our lives in a beautiful child i love it. i started making this film to explore the impact of our digital revolution. and then secrets the industry tried to hide for years began to spill out the is. it illegal. to. our electronics are made and unmade is dirty and dangerous
9:54 am
i think it's a global story of damaged lives environmental destruction and devices that are designed to die ily . if. in chalk a mess. industrialized nation i've put a huge pressure on our ecosystem and on the environment. when it comes to i.t. industry many people think it's. it's grainy or natural.
9:55 am
or some people think it's even think it's virtual. but in our investigation we find it's not like that. this pollution is having different consequences but i think that the impact the biggest impact is on this public health we have three hundred million who are residents who don't have access to sufficient saved drinking water. going to see what they almost see the how to shows you how many. to come to your
9:56 am
show you should get them to check. the over there it's hard. to just it's as if you hold one woman's event if you wish either end of the argument. i keep thinking about the moment when i face all those environmental and social damage. river you know which carries all the ways to lake. river and place old ladies suddenly down on their knees in front of me. i know i'm not like. that all the time i don't have any sort of government administrative power and don't have much financial resources to deal with this but i told myself i had that moment in front of those ladies i told myself that. at
9:57 am
least i need to bring the message out. i need to make sure that all the users of all those gadgets they need to be informed about this. i moved to this area in one nine hundred sixty nine to go to law school because i said i wanted to help people who didn't have the means to represent themselves. it was a time when most people not heard of the semiconductor industry. but within a few years people started seeing the the birth of what has become the you know global electronics industry. the. top names
9:58 am
were companies hewlett packard apple intel dance micro devices. the virtually the who's who of the electronics industry. and of course the granddaddy of them all was i.b.m. . when i got a card and i.b.m. that was great that was the company to work for at the time i could go any place where he worked i.b.m. i don't need an id you just write a check. it was that easy i.b.m. had that much clout. i was the first microprocessor buyer for i.b.m. in the early eighty's the idea of a personal computer which was was on oxymoron right i mean personal computer what end it what would you use it for anyway but it got legs when we started the p.c. business the first year they shipped fifty thousand units. and so we went from a thousand a week to forty thousand a week and at that point the p.c.
9:59 am
was long. from almost the very beginning you heard electronics and semiconductor production it was a clean industry they said it was as clean as a hospital but what they weren't telling people was that it was really a chemical handling industry and that the magic of making these microcircuits relied on the use of hundreds if not thousands of very toxic chemicals and that's why they have clean rooms that's why they have bunny suits to try to protect the chips it was never designed to protect the workers it was always designed to protect the product itself over i got those of a lot of different chemicals they built the disk drives we had to strip them out and then would have to dip i'm in severe gases and with a sponge and just with armed with severe i dunno what it was is i just knew it
10:00 am
stunk really bad and you couldn't get it on your skin because it would burn you like nobody's business. well what happened was people started getting sick was very strange kinds of illnesses things that didn't seem to make a lot of sense didn't seem to hang together but increasingly as this happened more and more there was a small group of people that began to think that maybe this was related to the chemical exposure on the job. one put music on yeah right i want to turn on the music for mom put some good music on today. right there. beside me you know there's a thing i tried to do. in the sea. and one nine hundred seventy five i was eighteen years old and i started working in the electronics field i went to
10:01 am
a specter of physics and they just hired me just like that i was making the end of the laser and i would have to mix up this chemical in i used to call it green go. and get the consistency and then put into a spray gun and i would have to heat that up after a glued on together that was just all the way that i did. yvette in know the material she was using turns out to be probably in the vicinity of fifty percent little excited. she didn't know she was exposed to lead in tell her that i got pregnant with mark in one thousand seventy nine and that was full term my months and we're just really happy about it. that way that was he doesn't even know to cross the street and not know a car is coming to stop going to the restroom you know i have to go with him in there so i have to system with everything. number one or you'd better know it.
10:02 am
if i knew what i know now how to read out of spec or physics at the time it was unnecessary it just. breaks my heart that i could avoid it this. go we're filing this lawsuit against your employer and it's a lawsuit for his son who was born with severe developmental disabilities and is a suit concealment of systemic chemical poisoning and case of a vet and for the direct injuries to mark. marks condition isn't like a cold take antibiotics and you're going to be fine in five days this is life. you're. just overrides all that and you do what you gotta do to stay i still do that. i'm sorry getting. and.
10:03 am
i discovered i.b.m. had a corporate mortality. which they kept for thirty years and it kept track of the causes of death of their lawyers it's the most dramatic findings were about cancer for the company as a whole this was thirty three thousand deaths that were in this corporate mortality file so included people who had worked all over the u.s. . but then when you look at specific plants like the i.b.m. plant in san jose there was some extraordinary excess costs of deaths one was brain cancer another was not hard can some foma another was melanoma of the skin and in the women breast cancer was three and four fold higher than expected. that was the heart of this settles a lawsuit. in a santa clara courtroom today the first trial out of more than two hundred similar lawsuits filed against i.b.m. former i.b.m.
10:04 am
workers jim bore and a lighter hernandez say they developed cancer from exposure to toxic chemicals at i.b.m. san jose facility in the late seventy's or early ninety's i mean literally tried to prevent the results of the tally analysis from ever seeing the light of day in fact they went to the judge and said this can't be used in this case a lot of hernandez's not dead she's going to be in the courtroom and not only was it not relevant the judge said it was prejudiced the jury if they saw what these excess cause deaths were and so he denied use of it in the court. many of the brands will respond to questions by saying no one has ever proved to me that a single person has died from exposure to these chemicals either within inside their factories or outside of their factories and of discussion. but that's not the way that we approach environmental or occupational health in the world we're not flying
10:05 am
blind here at all especially on the chemicals at issue here in the electronics industry actually and most of the common chemical used in all industrial manufacturing we've been at this work for forty years. if you look at the pub listening generated by again you would think that we've lost everything and that's simply not coming. after the trial i.b.m. matters were resolved for hundreds of people whose claims to not go to trial. what can you tell us about the settlements. i'm not going to be able to talk about any of the resolutions of the cases and. can you give any details at all did you have to agree not to reveal the details as part of the settlements all i can say is that the matters were
10:06 am
resolved that's what i'm allowed to say. here in silicon valley chip companies in the other electronics production companies used hundreds if not thousands of toxic chemicals and the most of the chemicals once they're used in making the components needed to be disposed of as waste the companies ended up storing them in underground storage tanks all over the valley. but what the brilliant people who were designing these systems didn't quite think through all the way was that the solvent swer really good at dissolving things and so when you put them into a tank eventually they're going to eat their way through the tank.
10:07 am
solvents that the electronics industry used in production in silicon valley in the seventy's and eighty's are now on in the groundwater and if you think about putting a drop of ink in a bathtub. that spreads really quickly and it's really hard to get that dropping back that's what we're dealing with except we're dealing with multiples of gallons of the stuff that is in the groundwater. in late one thousand nine hundred one there were over one hundred families in one little neighborhood who had serious problems and the state health department discovered that the families that were drinking the most heavily contaminated water had significantly higher rates of miscarriages and birth defects then did people in other neighborhoods with a chemical industry will often say if i had not a dime for every time i heard this but even water can kill you the most non toxic thing of course it can but only if you stick your face down in the bathtub or fall
10:08 am
into you know fall into a large body of water. so that has the traditional approach to toxicology is that the more stuff you're exposed to the more harm it causes you but what we're seeing in particularly around cancer and around hormone disrupting chemicals is that it's when you're exposed to it the time of exposure so if you're in third trimester and you get even a perp or billion or part for truly an exposure it can actually cause significant damage. we formed this silicon valley tuxes coalition and we did a summer organizing project getting people to sign petitions asking the e.p.a. step in with their authority into the superfund program yesterday. yes. yes. and i went to a meeting in washington and presented these thousands of petitions saying we need e.p.a. to come in it's time for e.p.a. to exercise your authority and to everybody's great surprise they agreed to do that
10:09 am
. so hewlett packard became a superfund site until became a superfund site national semiconductor advanced micro devices i.b.m. you name it they were there and they were all superfund sites and. the cost of cleanup for i.b.m. as well as all the other companies has been tremendous it's an enormously slow and tedious process. if you look right over here also this is a major residential neighborhood just directly across the street from this industrial site and most of the people living here today are unaware of this huge toxic plume. and those same chemicals that are still right under where we're standing are now beginning to seep back up out of the groundwater through the soil
10:10 am
and they're actually coming into the offices of these software engineers a google. and this is the one that e.p.a. said might take three hundred years to clean up. this is so complicated the devastation is so enormous that we're really talking centuries of cleanup not just years or decades. the problem is that it just keeps reoccur. please when companies started moving away from silicon valley to china i think that they probably to have to have the government off their backs . a chinese government made an offer to multinational corporations that they couldn't refuse. you need a land and you need money and you need government approval and you need lots of people to put it all together well they have all of that in china.
10:11 am
just. release. lydia one of the primary purposes of outsourcing is to enable companies like apple to make what are essentially an reasonable demands on manufacturers that they wouldn't and couldn't make if they actually had to employ the workers directly apple doesn't have to worry about what it means to workers when they insist on a tripling of the pace of i phone production.

to go to. the loop to. come in the new. ball. anyway focused on this is you. know. you can see as you go by the one you don't we see you know some of the. i. am a single example because you. can grow the stuff. you see that played into. something else was needed and will.

hello again i'm kemal santa maria with the headlines on al-jazeera a ceasefire to end the fighting between armed groups in gaza and the israeli military appears to be holding but there are warnings from israel's prime minister that the campaign isn't over twenty five palestinians and four israelis were killed in cross border attacks since saturday. turkey's electoral board is ordering a rerun of its mail election which president reject type are the ones ak party now really lost the main opposition has branded the decision as quote plain dictatorship. the decision to reverse those results caused quite a bit of anger hundreds of turkish citizens here marching through the streets of istanbul chanting and banging on pots and pans those voters now expected to return to the polls on the twenty third of june simcoe sold us more from istanbul. turkey cyrix oral board said that the decision behind and no amount of
10:19 am
a stumble may or elections is that some of the ballot box officers were not civil servants according to turkey's electoral law about box officers should be civil servants and also the electoral board stated that balloting comity some of their actions were against the regulation that's why they filed a criminal complaint against the balloting committee u.s. secretary of state mike pompei o says the deployment of extra warships to the middle east is in response to actions by iran but he didn't specify what those actions were the aircraft carrier u.s.s. abraham lincoln is part of the flotilla which is heading to the region. the pilot of the russian air a flood plane that crash landed on sunday killing forty one people says the aircraft was struck by lightning which damaged its radio communication instruments the plane burst into flames during the emergency landing in moscow aviation authorities authorities in russia have now recovered the flight data recorders. and

at least fifty eight people have been killed and dozens injured in a fuel tanker explosion in new people have been siphoning gasoline from the overturned truck when it burst into flames on sunday night it happened on the highway linking new jersey international airport to the capital niamey investigators say a spark from a motorcycle may have caused the explosion news hour and twenty five minutes right now though on al jazeera it's back to death by design. remain on al-jazeera. as the world's biggest democracy goes to the polls we focus on the economic challenges facing india and the rise of ultra nationalism a new series if you would winning environmental shows that meet some of the people striving to protect the planet. twenty five years up to coming to power can be amc maintain its political dominance in south africa. an exclusive exploration of the goals and motivations behind russia's foreign policy told by those who influenced

the kremlin and with brics it still looming and populism on the rise across europe will these elections become a referendum on the news itself maybe on al-jazeera. i think a lot of capital doesn't go for content in the boat out since it is obviously youngest emotion because died and fifteen others were injured after an explosion at a foxconn factory in chengdu southwest china the details to a father to son from don king but you know you just i don't hold it at all to the good at around seven pm in a polishing workshop that appears to have been triggered by an explosion of combustible dust in a duct. no one to be surprised that aluminum dust if it's in a high enough concentration and there is an ignition source it will produce explosion and fire this is
10:22 am
a hazard which is extremely well known. so the fact that apple suppliers have an explosion in chengdu in the plant means that they had very poor housekeeping very poor production processes that's terrible. what's completely unacceptable is that five months later at another plant within the apple supply chain they had another explosion and fire. it's outrageously inexcusable that they had a second one five months later. they set up these chains exactly the way to want them they monitor these chains with exacting scrutiny so they know exactly what's going into their products at every point along the way.
10:23 am
but we have a town hall i fix it all began said will show you how the sum of all the happy good . so i have an i phone five here and i'm a show you a little bit about what's inside what makes it tick and some of the design choices that apple made putting it together to the first thing out paul has on the bottom is to proprietary penta loeb screws this is a security screw that apple designed to keep people out of the phone once you get the phone open we can start to see the guts. this isn't really a phone it's pretty much a full blown computer that can make your phone last for eight hours or you need a really big battery. batteries and phones last about four hundred charges every
10:24 am
cell phone i've ever had to use pop the back up you can pull the battery out swap a new battery and every year or two you have to replace the battery apple has decided with the i pod and now the i phone that they don't like that model so what they are doing is building the batteries in the phone and using proprietary screws on there an attempt to limit the lifespan of the following. about eighteen months which is around the time when they have a new phone and they want you to buy a new one anyway. my fix is a company that wants to see everything get fixed so we show people how to fix things and provide the parts tools and guides to enable them to do so helping everyone fix everything so that's the challenge it's a big challenge because there's millions of devices out there luke and i are reluctant capitalists we get excited selling screwdrivers even though that seems like a boring product because we're selling people a capability with able to do something that they wouldn't have otherwise we want to make it simple and easy for people to repair their own stuff. the amount of raw
10:25 am
materials that go into the products that we use are stagnant over five hundred pounds around material go into making in a down south. so here's an example of a circuit board in this you waste bin this is out of apple laptop from a few years ago even if you make this circuit board in the most environmentally friendly way it's still going to use a ton of water a ton of money probably literally a ton of water lots and lots of materials. with them for this is a bone you know. well nothing is different. in street clothes than ways that through the american manufacturers are. they're selling a thing and they're saying well you have it but you don't really own it there's no way we're ever going to sell you a screwdriver the. ford would never sell you
10:26 am
a car and say we're not going to make tires available to it to keep your car running after thirty thousand miles you have an entire ecosystem an entire industry that's built on secrecy and we're one organization that's trying to pry open the hood a little bit show people what's inside. and we've kind of been conditioned by manufacturers and brands to leave yourself on the outside don't worry about the details we make this product we give it to you and you just use this product and when it stops working you go buy a new one. when we originally started my fix it was just a way to provide people with some solution to fix broken devices. and over time we've realized both the manufacturing and the environmental problems are all huge concern.
10:27 am
over the last few years i've been to china on a regular basis a lot of that related to our tool manufacturing. we're looking at getting circuit boards manufactured. this is the big rechargeable battery and this is the main circuit board in here so considering it's just a flashlight you can see it's a surprisingly complex circuit board and i've got these basic schematic the sort of more once we decided to leave them with the team and. finding a supplier that is a. vironment only friendly has good quality and has reasonable pricing all three of those at once it's probably going to be a challenge. to be. heard section.
10:28 am
visiting factories we've found that it's surprisingly effective to show up on short notice. in general any factory and it's not willing to let you see the factory is an immediate red flag at least for someone that we don't want to do business with. this is the big line from the factory so this is where they're edging at bringing all these nasty acids and other chemicals in. you've got a little bit of acid believe you you can see gilboa acid on the outside in the machine. i walked over to where there were some storage tanks and it was basically acid all over the
10:29 am
floor and the moment i looked over that they told me i mean when i get back away from here and this isn't giving me a good feeling. as far as making sure everything's done correctly environmentally it doesn't seem like that's a priority for them. and they don't love them out river and. the fact that it was so dirty was the price you had to pay for the last thirty years of development you. don't want to buy from them. what do the time get someone. from all that. audience and
10:30 am
ask. if i am it sounded. like one. hundred or. so since it will be soon so i said no she brings my sense at the time to buy them just. as what the idea what that's like a model of model. i'm going to do a lot of the document was done so that it. doesn't you know but fuck you know by you since you took. the woman sitting down when i do it so you suddenly and so when we should. do it it's a typical hum i pod. in the us budget but when you think you.
10:31 am
should say it is constantly changing. a lot of those. you. spend a lot of time travel you know generations and. you see. this is definitely the most professional of factories visited. the fact that we're being taken through this water treatment facility is a really promising sign. you start out with incredibly yucky. water and it goes through a progressive series of filters and other process and eventually you end up with hopefully acceptably clean water. the coolest thing when the water is coming through the treatment facility some of the water comes out of this and they have
10:32 am
been here in the factory and i said well i know the water treatment is working ok as long as the fish are still alive a little unfortunate for the fish because if something breaks maybe the fish die but it's clear to me that this would definitely be a factory to buy from up the one we visited. from the institute of public and environmental affairs module. thank you. ladies and gentlemen i'm truly honored and humbled to be the first chinese citizen to receive the school award thank you thank you. i set up this.

plea bargain fares. and our first project is to. a national water pollution database. though this records comes from the government sources the public can access the information by click on the locations on the map because people want to know you know who should be held responsible for such a bad what a pollution situation and so far we got some more than one hundred and ten thousand records of violations in our database. april two thousand and ten we filed letters to twenty nine i.t. friends who checked with them whether those polluting factories whether they are their suppliers. all of them responded to except the one that is an apple.
10:34 am
apple just give us one statement that is we have a long term policy not to disclose our supply chain or. not to. my june contacted me and we began to work together to apply additional pressure to a company with headquarters here in the united states my mission singled out a number of facilities that he believed were in apples that it had a very heavy environmental impact in their locality and when he level of those charges apple was shocked and sort of in denial that this type of problem to this extent could really exist in their supply chain. i think it's important to understand that this is not just about apple you know this
10:35 am
is about the id industry. they all share printed circuit board manufacturers they all share or chip manufacturer is you know despite their audit protocols there is a lot more talk than walk on environmental impacts in the supply chain. you say to yourself how could they not know about any of these problems but you know it's it's always you ask and it's all you look for so if you're not there and you have a checklist of what you need and you need it now and that checklist does not include what's going on at the end of the pipe of your wastewater treatment plant it's actually conceivable that you know exactly where it's being made you just don't know exactly how it's being made and what the impact is. that's what's going on not just with apple but with all of these companies. forty years of operating the environmental protection agency in this country these are american based
10:36 am
companies hard to believe. we still have this industry which is discharging so much waste not just normal waste a hazardous waste. in just one supplier and generate more than one hundred thousand tonnes of hazardous waste in one year. how could we dispose stuff you know in a safe way so how much a time bomb this industry's gonna create. in electronics at this moment in time i believe we're in the dinosaur age. or using too many resources too many role materials and the life of the computers piggly
10:37 am
three to four years. for a small company in r. and. a mission is to juice a fair trade computer. in the early days i repaired this component levels on the computers under one of the boards. from i noticed that there was huge amount of waste in the computer industry. so we started designing and building up to date range and reuse with computers. this is my father's environmental drill and all my trusty and just really just it's just it's just. how could you build a computer with stick how could you build a computer without lead mercury p.v.c.'s brominated flame returns and all the other
10:38 am
heavy metals. that was our gold the material we use is wood so it's technology of one hundred years ago but it's perfectly good our computers will last seven to ten years because the home users non-technical people can repair and replace i'm never placed in the memory you can extend the life of it by upgradability. today is is there a major launch in europe. we've lots of invites and to people. we were awarded the world's first european. for integration desktop computers it
10:39 am
was the world's first ever achieve some wart. time i thought wow the the gates. are just so flooded in for us that was not the case maybe a little bit of naive essay on my part is hard at there like government agencies some people like that there is no room for environmental they are totally just bottom line. i'm looking at it now it's one little step at a time but what we need to do is it work harder build more computers and get people to join us. americans toss out a lot of gadgets every day. if we look at the three million or so tons of electronic waste that gets generated in united states every year probably fifteen percent of that gets recycled. and some percent of that
10:40 am
gets recycled in a responsible fashion. part two will crumble she says t.v. there you go. again that i'm the wind you. see on the far. side of the woods.
10:41 am
or in. the green knee or many try to hide. those with the. sun the face hunting. the hides a. shit don't lose your shit. the why is it be. so nice which will chant tommy. to the decimal. so sound happy that he will hide it's. just. so.
10:42 am
chooses. now you can see me. use a male voice here that has a k.g.b. and shield up there. we think ok we'll send our you ways to china let them burn it let them have the pollution but we have to remember that air pollution travels around the globe. that pollution is getting lost into the atmosphere and coming right back to us. metals metal is a metal you know and it's there's no other form for it to convert to you can convert it from being in the soil to being in the water to being in the air but you still have a metal. in our work we fly through clouds and we sample the cloud droplets. and we measure the chemistry of each one very fast as you're flying through
10:43 am
a cloud. they're flashing as fast as you can imagine on a screen and we collect all that information and what we get is what's a chemical fingerprint. in california with getting rid of lead in gasoline we've reduced the amount of lead we have and so when lead shows up that is one of the tracers that we say this could be from elsewhere and we can trace it back in time and say you know four days ago this air was over asia. and you have more pollution and you have more aerosols those go into the cloud and so you have so many they can't get big enough to fall and lead to rain. and it's giving you these extremes of either not enough water in some places and way too much water in other places. what happens if we push it too far. we'll start to see more of these extreme events things like
10:44 am
flooding and hurricanes. these are what people often refer to as tipping points and not so that's what we're very concerned about happening. my attachment to my devices is more complicated now. it's hard to get excited about the next new model or upgrade knowing what they really cost to make. the industry in it's constant search for cheaper workers and land is moving on to new countries with few government safeguards or inspections. we all have a share in this problem. but we can use our voices and our buying power to demand real labor safety and greater environmental protections. the digital revolution has
10:45 am
improved our lives in so many ways. we need to make sure it doesn't rob us of our health and our planet. hell or may is the stormiest months in the us and the point of view of potential tornadoes hail and huge downpours at a thunderstorm and this is the latest trial that's been moving slowly eastwards in this is the typical movement they start up and some of that texas near to her and just east as well as a picture for tuesday must of time but the potential of the storms probably
