9:00 pm
see how long it takes for the word just. you know. taking us back to domine to explain why the camp was clear. and this is something i wasn't expecting. a motorway service station transformed by those refusing the government camps. the services allow them to stay but at the same time doing good business charging them for showers. now is 100 persons change the players are to still be full of dance and no no one now only me. can you show us a bit how it looked like at the tricks. so refugees tense all this place here right this one venue i slide full of dance. these tracks are the most important tool from greasy ports
9:01 pm
a crucial way for local companies and multinationals to get their goods into the heart of fuel. there is a train coming. so when the tents were here at this place there were no trains coming but yeah because. there is not. there trying many times to bring the train as. the refugees represented the problem. for the free being all goods and products there is a ministry. and you see there. the tribes with many ways that you or your. children. when you open the border. so you're blocking the trains deliberately you know that if you are blocking the way. you will and the
9:02 pm
greeks they will start to react. the greek train company oil seed told us they couldn't move goods for $75.00 days costing them $20000000.00 in lost shipping. i think is the best metaphor for what's happening in europe today in the sense that people refugees who are fleeing from war and from war zones such as syria but also going to stand in iraq became a problem why because we're at the train track and they were blocking the train trip. so it became a problem for for the for a sions for also other countries not only greece because this way was blocked so on the one hand what you can see is the. refugees don't have the right to move freely on the other hand towards can move freely as far and as much as they want.
9:03 pm
but greece is subject to forces beyond its control. to global financial crash revealed that greece has taken out a mountain of loans from european banks. at the urging of european leaders europe's financial institutions gave greece the biggest flown in history. and most of that money flowed straight back to the mainly french and german banks who kept encourage them to borrow. but the loan conditions required extreme osteria to state spending cuts so severe that the economy shrunk by a quarter of unemployment reached 27 percent prompting a huge rises was. another condition was must privatisation of all free. including the strategic police told him poor peter. it is one of the most important ports in the mediterranean and 3 simply degree government has sold 67 percent of
9:04 pm
the shares to a chinese company called. the docks are quiet today the sell off has prompted a better with the unions they say the troika of the international monetary fund the european central bank and the european commission are experimenting with a new kind of privatization. you would struggle with for how many of those 20 days today were interned if they strike. very going where going to trade unionists and me thinking since it's an international you know trying to be honest we think they very much interested thing they say sure that this new thing they still ports could escape and use that since they're private i say even the port authority or at least city it's fish features on the part of you know this is the vietnam war getting their forecast for the sort of the headquarters and it will be the day after and this building will be given to the costco.
9:05 pm
because costco doesn't recognize unions the doctors fear they will go from being skilled employees with secure jobs to temporary workers with no rights can you explain of what is the difference between the working conditions if the part of paedos which is still old baby creek state park which is already all possible they are using a complex system of something thought so there is no direct employment by costco they come. and precarious employment that means they work. $1215.00 days a month so there is no stable job for them and there is no. scheme so for a trained professional and train show that's why there are frequent. action and saying mr we know this. also this more that we be subcontracting expanded to other ports in europe the last 6 years. an experiment for a droid and in our liberal policies. they are they think here they try to
9:06 pm
export it in other countries in a european union. what we have seen in court today was that the biggest historical achievements of the european project such as collective bargaining such as trade union organizing minimal wages all of this is actually disintegrating. many blame the chinese company cost but i'm meeting former greek finance minister yanis varoufakis who has astonishing inside information about europe's part in the deal. seems this is not working. yeah this is. amongst the 1st things i did in the ministry they one day too was
9:07 pm
to embark on. a kind of silent negotiation with the chinese authorities and with the costco c.e.o. and we agreed to collective bargaining and were allowing trade unions to present workers for other board if they were given the rest of the court. secondly. they agreed on a spectacular investment program of anything between $25300000000.00 euros within 18 months there would have been a fantastic injection of capital of activity of jobs in the part of the us and finally most importantly they would prepared the chinese government to contribute to contribute to purchase a bond a new bond that we would issue as a minister of finance up to 10000000000 so frankly that would help us a return to the markets and create effectively signal to the rest of the world that
9:08 pm
this is back now i thought that there was a very good deal and guess what happened. there was a telephone call from berlin to beijing saying keep of greece while you were negotiating with them and all deals were off because of course china is not going to jeopardize its a relationship with the heart of europe. in order to seal a deal with us currently the greek government is selling 67 percent of the part of the nose and under your deal it was supposed to be $51.00 right yes all those things that we had negotiated the dragon made sure that we're not part of the deal he just did not want any european body for the country to even be to begin to imagine that if they voted people like us in they would get a better deal even for one person. although hugely important for greece pierrot's is only a tiny part of the 35 year program of privatization across europe. sectors
9:09 pm
like railways energy cost banking and airlines were all part of the $1.00 trillion dollars of public assets private tases $98.00. was the united kingdom under margaret thatcher that led the charge for privatisation in europe. david hall has been studying the impact of it for over 30 years privatisation supposedly reduces prizes improve services and so on what has your experience and your studies show it doesn't reduce prices and it usually doesn't improve services and in many cases it services worse. that's the basis on which prostrations always sold but immediately people have experience approaches ation almost the 1st thing that happens is that prices go up prices go up because the private companies are taken
9:10 pm
over or in the business of restructuring it to generate. returns that the. the public company didn't care. which might explain why it's usually made it popular resistance but it's almost always forced through when you tell us well tipping the referendum where clause promoting water privatization the government tried to reintroduce that left that water utilities in private. why the thing that most of the governments in europe but also in latin america and the states still stick to this kind of economic model privatizations are seen as an easy way of getting large amounts of money into government so you can use it either true or to reduce taxes and that's half actually used and that's how again the going governments do it and that's how for example countries like greece are being instructed to use it by the i.m.f. this is this is this is the core purpose of privatization and
9:11 pm
a great concept system generate revenue to reduce the debt. and once something is in private hands it is at the risk of takeover by larger often foreign companies. i mean romania there recently protested against water and health privatization but nothing seems to get them as worked up as their forests. has been handed back to private donors they've been heavily exploited by international investment firms and european would processing companies. on the border we transfer away and yet it's one of the forest that has been decimated. it's be replaceable according to the lawyer representing forest owners who may now have the last intact through a forest landscape where the man has nothing to vent least forest are. today are they are not protected. how far away is it actually one hour or
9:12 pm
depend on. their old one hour and a half day legal clear cutting mainly happens. in remote places high up in the mountains. romania was a colony of the i was trying to get real empire and now is the 2nd poorest country in the you get with you again it would appear a failure for just. a relative poverty means cutting gangs can exploit forest country can't afford to protect. the sea well he's known for it oh yeah you see it.
9:13 pm
here you can walk so this is it finally and. from here we don't see it. it's bigger and it's what we can see here is completely illegal. usually you are not allowed to card to more than $300.00 or forest you cut and how big is this approximately $15200.00 pictures of forest and tired are gone. and you know we need it now they are still cutting it they cut to every day since when did this start and what is the scale of this clear cutting in romania the big one it's beginning after 20022003. that was the moment when there's power for kompany or ponder force factorial. in our back onto the austrian company whole stench 5 whole for our now romania's largess with processor. they don't cut the woods themselves but they're able to offer
9:14 pm
a relative fortune to those who will mostly this clearcuts done by people in the gang. these forests forged the documents and when they reached the factory they had some documents to show them that into respect any law. but at the factory some didn't even need forged documents. their own mental investigation agency posed as a cutting gang willing to ignore the law something that didn't present a problem for my. little bit concerns me using rigidity to be value in that we have to produce or be your piece not what we get it from from our side. you decide what you want to say and. we asked her for an interview but they
9:15 pm
declined so we turned to chance a green activist who has been. one of their employees a manager has admitted that if they run at full capacity there's no place for other processes on the market can you tell us once they end up in this factory where do they go this sawmill is actually slicing up the logs they make planks out of it and then they exported worldwide be to china japan arab countries even usa it's a world market a main problem is the fact that there's not much left for us to add to devalue what happens somewhere douse the jobs. happen so to say somewhat as all of these exploitation of nature is happening in romania but nothing stays here it actually goes to other countries right yeah you stay in this in this vicious circle ok of
9:16 pm
selling more and more resources at the price that is being. created or fake somewhere else outside of your country and yet you stay in a dependency of those wants to buy your resources. and you destroy your nature and you destroy your livelihood. this makes me wonder whether we can speak about a new kind of relationship which is very similar to the relationship which we had during dollars through again your money. you have the empire you have western europe all certain companies german companies french companies who are cutting forests all around the mania in the parable of the european union and then they are importing them back to europe. and the empire is using the natural resources not only for us but health care system education water and they are expecting to well
9:17 pm
you know in order to sort the sense of. so could we say that europe is actually polarizing itself. on counting the cost $3.00 decades on the collapse of the soviet union russia easing gaging with africa to raise its political clout and we look at the economics behind said he's decision to buy the s. 400 and f. $35.00 stealth bomber counting the cost on i just you know. al jazeera. where ever you are. i'm victoria my childhood was not always easy my mother was suffering from c.v.r.

depression through making this film i hope to understand my mother's mental illness and to find out if the conditions for the mentally ill have improved literally millions of people can be treated to receive no help no medications. we have a duty to change our attitudes. mental illness breaking the silence on al-jazeera. and richelle carey in doha with the headlines right now on al-jazeera at least 3 people have been killed in a car bombing in southern turkey the blast happened in the town of a harley that is close to the syrian border it's understood those killed were inside the vehicle at the time of the explosion turkey's president writes at tyburn one says the explosion was likely terror related. sudan's ruling military junta and
9:19 pm
a coalition of opposition and protest groups have reached a deal to share power during a transitional period leading up to elections a mediator from the african union says a new bro tating council will be set up. the un backed government says it's lost contact with one of its fighter jets south of libya's capital tripoli and a social media post war claimed to have tars forces show the wreckage of what they say is a probe a fighter jet they shot down near to her in a city that is southwest of tripoli people in algeria are once again on the streets to demand a new democratic government and to celebrate their countries and dependence from france on thursday the interim president there been solid call for a national dialogue over how to hold presidential elections he did not however set a date for those elections. iran is condemning what it describes as the illegal interception of an oil tanker by british marines off the spanish coast united states is applauding the impounding of the ship suspected of carrying iranian oil

9:21 pm
keep it here on al-jazeera more news to come europe's forbidden colony return you to that now let me take you to things like nuclear summer. rain. storm against all states down most skilled. politics in stadiums that are brought. to our news destination to see the women's world cup from 29 t. . 2 2 2 2 2 in part one we saw how the richest countries of europe are extracting the resources of smaller period for countries like greece and romania in what could be described as
9:22 pm
a colonial when. it's quite interesting to look back the 1st globalization the 8090 s. the late 19th century. where you got a very similar picture of british french german. companies. investing around the world in. sometimes the same kind of sectors christine was right just as a starting not. just as then the companies buying up the sectors have close links to the state like energy giants e.d.f. owned by the french government and white and fall on by sweden but it's not limited to just european companies and governments europe is also facilitating a colonization by larger forces. sociologists and says fine and the abstract idea of making money from money is the real power in the world today.
9:23 pm
one way in which i would put it is sad we're really dealing with with a period that is dominated by a large degree of extract that is not the language they use it sounds much better if you say privatization and deregulation that's just sounds like such a intelligent and and sober way to go about it when you say finance google and all kinds of other sectors are extract sect. that doesn't feel so good it feels like something is getting taken out of the financial system it might as well be mining it has to go into other sectors and extract what makes it particularly dangerous unlike say more traditional forms of investment and corporate is that it can extract not just from the very rich but from anything including very modest the effort. to
9:24 pm
it even dollars who once reported the free market are worried. you know center of the old also from gary an emperor former politician gosh but thomas campaign for hunger is transition from communism to the free market. but he was 40 fight when that led to millions losing their jobs he puts this recent trend into historical context but. the so this is the same continent as him without responsibility without the political project without the royal navy without the reduced raj without introducing this and that this is just sheer economic and barely growth force being applied. without any kind of responsibility in any kind of. hear about economy future whatever to the weak
9:25 pm
a conscience so basically i mean this is even worse than only it was because coal only ways in many ways twice this is a politics of totally responsible it's cheating everything and everybody in the same manner maximizing profits and neglecting strategy. and you know this is not the road me you know corrupt company or a little general motors or the old standard oil that had some sort of policy that had some sort of construction that has been you know fresh out of the political for it is and so on so forth these companies today didn't anybody not even a wrong one not even an evil one they just want they just want the money. much of that money flows through the city of london europe's biggest financial center. but how long london will retain that position is our noses britain wall today in the referendum to leave that you enjoy in 2016. this utterly stunned the
9:26 pm
british and european establishment who blamed it on the economic laws or who they say are also in a fog. but britain was also the pioneer of privatization in europe especially in places like poor tolbert in wales . the last surviving blast furnace of britain's once mighty steel industry this facility was sold off in the eighty's and is now owned by the indian giant the periodical trade into pose so i wonder is it really immigration or economics behind briggs. you know immigration it's not just a case of thank heaven i would say can i want jobs are jobs that they've taken because people don't want to him anymore farmers will tell you our farmers cannot get people to go into a field and pick pick sprouts or whatever it might be just because we come out of
9:27 pm
europe doesn't mean to say you know solve the problem because if you still can't get people to pick the stripes or to pick the fruits then you know that people into doing. what is the importance and significance of the steel factory. and how it all could change if those that would be there things on ordinary citizens or families and so i want well paul told pushed to risk all the other downstream suppliers that we've got you know we don't trust road which is 50 mile down the road that has every single heins team in this country origination ports over and is then tinned in trust to the effect in the economy if you will of some where this would be symbiotic if anything happened here the knock on effect would be incredible you call it shops headdresses pichler stations self employed people you builders you carpenters all these people rely on the steel works because the people work if you feed them as well and if your water to remain on the
9:28 pm
referendum. you're going to. be on it i'm very disillusioned with. the. parliamentary processes that go on stage where. the closely just turn me off completely off i walk into walked. into t.t. to play you know i think. the shop i'd like to show that's where i. am for a change as much as in the rocky play vandalism here. and people have nothing to lose. so it isn't the immigration they're angry about but the colonial style extraction britain has practiced on itself for 35 years the efforts of which are all of us in mark's hometown of tredegar which lost that steel mill in 2013.
9:29 pm
and all of this is now both permanent i don't know this but what was it before. it was fantasy to farai into things in a laundromat he was and how does this connect that with the steel works because this is sasha to me last night. people can't afford to buy the product so use the same system because now if you look around you see it's like take away the trash that. this is the kind of place supposedly full of hatred for immigrants but it seems that resentment of foreigners has little to do with their anger at the e.u. in the pub i find out what the issue really is prepared for an economics lesson welsh style. in which all the new low in the liberal economic model full employment is now not of vital importance it's fatal to communities like this where full employment and and industry were so important and the result is
9:30 pm
poverty crime. and the only issue in inequalities which nearly new your liberal new. has caused one major issue which is you've got companies real bigger than countries so we've got a choice for that crossroads jew except that we're going down a road of this neo liberal leaning neo liberalism is a myth of global corporations which then start to rule the world or we're going to start go in well actually no i can't be allowed to what we got to get back to is assets that a british assets that the french assets the german a controlled by those states you know the biggest freight. company in this country is germany all our water companies or electrical cars in the east are all foreign sure that coming right their finger after a break ok want to be open to the dangers of globalization nearly burst
9:31 pm
a wall or big companies will still be hearing you have the opportunity for exploitation that's the way same with the arena well right this would really make a big big difference because they control it whatever. how can this colonial process of dispossession be taking place in such a massive scale without becoming headline you. well this 21st century colonialism doesn't ride into town waving a national flag he just seems to happen. but it's actually the result of institutions and rules designed to be shipped and. i'm going to try and unravel this beginning at the port of call if you're going to hurt. the so-called. jungle. which is a refugee camp in. jungle is home to those trying to cross the 20 miles of sea
9:32 pm
between here and britain i was sitting between the french government's regular attempts to clear it at a time when it's still growing you can still see 3000 people here who are in a kind of limbo. people from syria afghanistan africa iraq and all those countries from war souls on the other hand everything is being done to preserve the fleet floating off towards. the euro tunnel connects britain to europe and covers over $100000000000.00 of trade a year. junkie is the director of public affairs. so all the channel tunnel carries a loss high value to perishable the just in time components for manufacturing express deliveries to internet retail so companies can actually manage their stock in a constantly moving process that saves them from having warehousing saves them enormous costs and it means that they can have these integrated businesses that operate
9:33 pm
across the whole of europe. the fall area after the 5 kilometers is like this. previously we had to the boundary fence sort of thing you see around any factory or any industrial site then. people started to try and break down the fences so the answer was increased the quality since these are the standard high security fences a very difficult cut very different crime so we now have a very sophisticated fencing and surveillance operation. and since october last year i see no disruption from the migrant crisis to what about the refugees who came from syria from either mainly from greece who are actually also trying justify the better life their future problem is something which is a geopolitical issue so we were company in the business to not price between folks and incoming we're not we don't have a role
9:34 pm
a major role in solving the refugee crisis that's for governments international institutions to move to manage we have a role a responsibility to our customers to our shareholders to our own staff and to anybody. who's on our side. your eternal security is now a seamless operation involving french and u.k. forces a relationship established only after the company sued the government in a special for putting forth over questions as to exactly where that responsibility cut in and what how much was was considerate on a shelf. and so. there was a case in the international trouble tradition. in 2001 the 1st to set the record for the state of that responsibility. obviously from the perspective of the company you're a title it makes sense to ask the course to be covered from the state because in
9:35 pm
the 1st place the state was responsible for the refugee crisis but it's very interesting to see what is precisely the mechanism which is being used here in order to get the costs being covered by the state. court of arbitration or to britain and france to pay your account of $25000000.00 for the cost of securing against migrants in the late ninety's. this is highly controversial so i'm going to the heart of the e.u. brussels to talk to someone who knows how the secret process this war. that court this part of the investor state dispute settlement mechanism known as the ice d.s. which allows companies to sue states when their profits are tretton. the whole point about the investor state dispute mechanism is that it runs outside the court system it's about
9:36 pm
a special sort of law for big corporations i.z.'s is part of that if you're right i still say it's part of the t.t. ip so for most of the ordinary people if you mention something such as t.t. . they will not understand what it is about ok i would say tip is the transatlantic trade and investment partnership and it's a major trade deal on the board being discussed now between the european union and the united states it has all sorts of implications you know from the food you ate the medicines you take the vehicles that you drive the energy that you have animal welfare whether you want to keep genetically modified organisms out of your crops you know if the worst comes to the worst and some of the big corporations get what they want this really is a could be a potential real rollback of a lot of the very valuable legislation that a lot of people who over the years to get in the european. follow your.
9:37 pm
supporters on the other hand say that harmonization of regulations will grow the european economy by tens of billions of dollars a year. so i thought it would be sensible to see the document and gene agreed to take me to the reading room for members of the european parliament it's not open to the public in any sort of way. you only get access to the documents if the institution has documents they are gives you permission. going. so if the united states says we're not willing to let you see our documents you don't going to see that. it's taken a massive european wide grassroots campaign for a me piece to be allowed to see the text of the t.t.p. agreement. and even now it was pulling hard to find. that's that's the number that i was going to blow up there may be no where is that if you're already the living room yeah because what we were told was forcing some
9:38 pm
to the history that's. now ok. i came. back they only got half instructions it's opposite force the 17 ok let's show you that you get to go to the over there was. no it's not that one line up at the top of that place then it's you want to. go you know movie go to the. yes and no she says we can't film here just for money what is this that if you. know. he confirms it is there all the huge trade agreement is behind and find
9:39 pm
a bill unmarked door with a security keypad. thanks as a minister of finance of greece of one of the member states who was affected by these negotiations i had to sign a nondisclosure agreement promising that i would not reveal to my constituents to my voters that which i read if i was allowed to have a look at those negotiating documents this is preposterous and this is this is this is a v another moment of the democratic process representatives in a representative democracy keeping the de most of the position that they represent in complete darkness about what they're saying on their behalf. so why all the secrecy we can leaks has exposed the t.t.p. and its siblings the transpacific partnership and a similar deal covering services so we're going to wrest control in terms.
9:40 pm
for dorian embassy in london he explains why we only know about disagreements from leaks. these big teeth 3 agreements he's a teacher i think and p.p.p. . kept secret because otherwise they're windrush democratic opposition in the population and they won't be possible to negotiate you can come to conclusion i mean it's pretty obvious what do they tell us about the new global order and what are the efforts on democracy these are the most significant. plan to reorder the legal and economic structure of the west and friends. at least since the construction of europe the nature of the agreements is a construction of a new legal and economic block or ultra neoliberal system which will which will cement alter near liberalism within your and
9:41 pm
a wide range of other countries in treaty form and treaties are very very hard to change because you need agreement of all the countries participating in treated change it so it is that the end of any other political project because only by violating the rule of law by carrying out these treaties that you've agreed to that in fact you can proceed in a different political direction. i don't think this process could be described as colonialism as a new kind in a way of colonialism yes it's a new multinational colonialism heinies free. trade agreements reveal hidden mechanisms to which europe is on the one hand colonized by multinational companies and financial institutions and on the other hand colonizing itself. however these very same forces are behind a more traditional style of colonization which is not through trade agreements but
9:42 pm
for bombs and wars. the us british and french air strikes against president at half in libya in 2011 swept away a regime that was controlling migrant flows from africa into least huge amounts of weapons into an already unstable region. the females suggest the real reasons for francis involvement were less than humanitarian. gadhafi had accumulated more than 143 tons of gold and was planning to use this to introduce. an african dyna as an alternative currency to the franc in francophone africa so this was a threat to french colonial worst. desires within the francophone countries. this reveals precisely how the refugees are
9:43 pm
linked to europe's economic crisis part from being some kind of a natural disaster as for or a flood it is europe's colonial behavior abroad that forces them to make that dangerous journey. and carry a philosopher agnes heller has lived through a lot of european history including losing her father in auschwitz. she says the refugees challenge europe's core idea of itself in the 18th century already and of 1st constitution of france to our right to rights became lex lots of hurt in the constitution the right of man don and the right of the citizen drug to sit so i am the program yes now does that add in a conflict situation in europe to do other men. and right would the basic goal of blank us to think or done a future yes because they are indeed the men like us they are like us the are born
9:44 pm
with reason and conscience and right to liberty and to fear and to all kind of freedoms and to live just like us so we have to lead them in and they are the hand the inventor's also the right of citizens in their country and is their citizens should decide who can and that their territory or not this is the right told us it is at the 1st time in our history short of his started 200 years has learned it occurred that the right of man and the right of his insisted or out of the each other of course you good government can persuade a citizen to give priority to human rights a better government like us where is who is the citizen not to forget of are 2 of my mates general. so maybe the danger they pose
9:45 pm
is not that one or even 2000000 people. or 500000000. but because admitting we should provide for these fellow humans would reveals how europe's own citizens have been stripped of their resources and democracy by this financial colonization. and that is a. look at how the anger and frustration this generates is manifesting itself political on both sides of the spectrum. and search out some hope for europe's future. we don't want the state involved because this is a. moment of people in fact and had to learn here not something to do. 2 2 what went wrong in society that opened up the space for on the image get
9:46 pm
a gracious is the european parliament it's not accountable and it's impossible for the people to bear that is falling apart people don't want to take it for their needs and the forefront of strong demand are songs woman who are getting the growth of rejectionism of this world because the model doesn't work europe's forbidden colony episode 2 on al-jazeera. the west and sponsored by cattle and lays. and i was being cold for a couple of days it's going to stay cold for a couple more significantly below normal for
9:47 pm
a good half of south america that being the cold front the brought up the intact antarctic air now it's on the pacific side santiago is doing quite well at 19 degrees almost warm but the point is there is it should be middle teens are since young probably 10 degrees warmer than that and rio is just about average ri is going to suffer the rain from the frontal system which is on its way out into the south atlantic leaving cold red behind a general drop in temperature however when a series is going up one degree will be noticed now the warmest stuff for the amazon really has produced no showers recently which is a unusual situation has even for midwinter the showers further north have been significant for colombia and venezuela and recently off shore in honduras for example this general line of stormy weather service this part of the western caribbean right towards the audience has produced some big thunderstorms recently including in haiti although the forecast here is generally a dry one but you know completely dry and the trade winds are still blowing quite
9:48 pm
