4:16 am
anything and. yeah i can consume you sometimes heart problems. to some extent the lifespan gap between rich and poor exists everywhere but when new york university medical center studied the us the biggest disparity was here in chicago that gap is surprisingly wide even where the distance is short on the north side among the gleaming high rises of the city's streeterville neighborhood the average lifespan is 90 years 15 kilometers away in impoverished englewood it's 60 that is larry richards age but you know in englewood you beat the odds right all my life and money which leads to better health care or no health care better food better diet and rich people are just more aware of their bodies than poor people or they care more about it and they can afford the health care exactly. in streeterville residents have easy access to medical care

4:21 am
watching by. millions of syrian refugees has settled in turkey of the past several years they were initially welcomed but now many locals are starting to resent their presence i mean ok and i'm really good and you're in the stream to meet us your thoughts or join us live on you tube. tokiko small refugees than any other country in the world most of them come from
4:22 am
syria which has been fighting a civil war for the past 8 years as turkey's economy weakens what was once a point of national pride is now a lie bill a t for the government officials find themselves under pressure as public anti syrian sentiment rises across the nation to handle overcrowding in istanbul turkish authorities are planning to relocate thousands of syrians into other cities potentially separating them from their family members the government has also reportedly been rounding up and deporting hundreds of syrians over the past few months in violation of international law turkey denies this claim saying it helps refugees and does not deport them but turkey can't host 3600000 syrians indefinitely and were refugees worried that their time in the country is running out so to discuss these issues joining us today we have from istanbul use of iran he is a political analyst for t.r.t. world from boston massachusetts we welcome start i can maybe a syrian writer and human rights activists she's also
4:23 am
a refugee who lived in turkey for 2 years and also speaking to us from istanbul is diego cucolo a freelance reporter and author of 7 syrians war accounts from syrian refugees we also invited turkish officials to join us and we reached out to several of them but they did not respond to us but we are very grateful for you guess being in this conversation yousif this idea of anti syrian sentiment have you seen it what does it look like in turkey. well obviously it does exist any time you have such a mass exodus of refugees in an injection of a minority immediately in such a small amount of time we're talking about $3600000.00 refugees as you stated and that's just the registered amount refugees that's just syrian refugees when you add up kids and iraqis who are also. off the books of the legal amount you're nearly 5000000 that's about 67 percent of the turkish population and that's
4:24 am
a tremendous amount of pressure on the social fabric of a country when that number is injected all in with the span of 3 to 4 years so you know that could be a little there could be a little negative sentiment amongst the very understandable this is human nature but the turks are very very tolerant and we saw this type of mass entrance of refugees into another country western country your country. for example even i'm sure would be much more dire circumstances amongst the refugees and a much greater backlash amongst the public. speaking of that sentiment i want to share this from twitter someone who says this is a super contentious topic in turkey and i need to inform you as a turk there is more than meets the eye not every single one of the millions of syrian refugees welcome to deter key are allowed to go to istanbul that is the rule refugees are distributed he goes on tweeting to the stream to say i am wary of
4:25 am
reports a handful of syrians are sent back to active war zones without qualifying each case where and why they were sent back and wary of the matter becoming a domestic political football and i'm wary the rest of the world is not doing enough so sorry give this one to you because there was a point where you were in istanbul as a syrian refugee talk to us about how you saw this issue what this person on un twitter describes as very contentious how was it for you. well i was there in 2014 around the beginning and the summer and back then we were kind of new and in turkey you know it was still. the wave of migration to were new was still new as well and. everything. was it was it was a normal welcoming atmosphere at the time of course there is no black and white of
4:26 am
course there was a lot of people who were struggling you know to make ends meet. but for me i was in between jobs and trying to find it and like many people my age at the time and i actually ended up i couldn't stay in istanbul because you have to understand that people who are in istanbul or people who work in. factories and or they are able to go to college in istanbul and of course living expenses there and for me at the time i couldn't so i moved to the syrian turkish border and got ziad tip and i ended up working there i guess i want to tell you a little clip this is a. local and he was talking about chops and also refugees have a listen to him this was just a few weeks ago. when the muslims to the point of that i myself for example i'm a baker because foreigners live in my country i cannot easily find
4:27 am
a job in my sector before 2012 there were probably 100 bakeries looking for bakers through online ads as well now the bakers in our country are looking for work. whichever bakery you go to it's whose backs turkomans syrians afghans should go back to their countries as soon as possible. to that if an understandable opinion if you are struggling if you notice that your profession is is being pressurised by other people coming into your neighborhood when i ask yourself what is anti syrian sentiment look like the kind of bypass they don't they don't bad he didn't really explain what it might look like he spent a lot of time a syrian refugees what is their experience as a human port. yes so i think the man in that quote was referring to illegal workers who are paid less than turkish citizens and would
4:28 am
be more attractive hires who are turkish companies looking to save on all those skilled labor. the fact is most of the syrians in turkey do not have work permits their work permit initiative has built about 65000 syrians have work permits was the figure at the end of 2002 and there's 3600000 syrians in turkey so it's a really small number so if you have this an area busy where you have very cheap labor and you have an economic crisis which is ongoing in turkey some people might feel like syrians are being. unjustly. preferred by people looking for that low skilled labor i would also add the last few years have been very difficult in turkey there's been a lot of elections a lot of. but islands there was a difficult period in 2006 through the country's been through a lot so people are emotionally well at the moment with the economic downturn.
4:29 am
has become an easy target to vent for many people here so that translates into comments like what you just saw are. sometimes more interrupts discrimination or just works or comments in the streets might make people feel unwelcome but i would just so what's been said so far as 100 percent true it's difficult to host this number or any country. so the balance of those 2 things that resentment and yet the responsibility of hosting that many people is being represented online i want to share this from the divine on twitter who says the current situation of 3000000 former syrian refugees in turkey are at the blink if social catastrophe i hear terrible things about refugees from my town which is a small town in west turkey as the economy is bankrupting a social in miti is growing against refugees so he's linking the idea of the
4:30 am
worsening economy in with that and that's a point that others have picked up on and so i want to play this video comment we got from a selim says ak is a ph d. candidate brown university you said i'll direct this to you have a listen the refugee crisis has already cost the country over $40000000000.00 which is becoming extremely controversial as the country's economic troubles worsen and polls show overwhelming crush partisan support for an end to the open door policy and gradually. of syrian refugees if i'm cruising indeed keen on continuing its open door policy it will have to do it against impossibly difficult odds against believe of public opposition and that's going to create lots of political controversy. what role is the economy playing in this is that it is playing a huge role in a the increase in negative sentiment towards refugees and it's only natural when the economy is in a downturn that people are looking for someone to blame and refugees are an ideal
4:31 am
target oh we saw the refugees as a huge target during local elections as some of the nationalist parties and the major opposition used it as part of their lection campaign and it was a very very successful they were able to capture a sample they were able to capture anger and after the elections it looks like the ruling party got the message it does have to deal with this refugee problem then we are now seeing the president slowly attempting to find solutions to this refugee problem the major solution he sees it is a repeat your emotion but you can't just dump these refugees back in to a war zone so turkey's trying to sit down at the table with russia and secure a cease fire to live there trying to talk to the americans secure a safe zone in northeast syria finding trying to find areas where they can secure and bring refugees back and when we also talk about 3500000 refugees in turkey we
4:32 am
also need to remember the internally displaced people living in areas that turkey is present and turkey has influence in serious world when you take that number into account we're talking about another 6000000 people in the euphrates shield zone and be up oliver operation hala great song which encompasses freend. all of these areas so you have turkey clint responsible for almost 9000000 syrians right now and this is an absurd number we're talking about 30 percent there pre-concert the syrian population. i want to share a story it's a foreign policy story that you zorra worked on. it's a question of semantics maybe or maybe practicalities use of the saying we patch relation and in this foreign policy article here right here my laptop you call it
4:33 am
deportation policy there's a difference here in the way you are seeing this issue explain. well it's it's not really too complicated what i have seen is that there has been a large number of syrians being deported against their will from turkey which breaks several laws international laws and human rights laws so. and i don't people and and i i lived in tricky and i left it about 3 to 4 years ago and i still have a lot of connections there and it really pains me to see people who have recently stopped feeling safe in turkey even though they sought refuge there. so i mentioned to people in the article i mentioned he sham and mohamed and. and both of them were deported around the same time one of them was killed while trying to
4:34 am
reenter turkey his name is a sham and mohamed i really don't want his name to be forgotten because he was a young man and he had to be kids. and it's really not fair to see how turkish police on the borders are i have treated this man while he was trying to reenter and many many times during that month that he was deported and if you are going to report people deport people back at least deport them somewhere safe and we all know that syria right now is nothing but safe so and hani allowed right now is still stuck and i talk to him on a daily basis he is still stuck in northern syria and he is in hiding because he has been. critical of the h.t. and before when he was in syria he has been critical of them. and like many maybe
4:35 am
fighters who are right now still fighting in syria he believes in democracy and human rights and unfortunately that puts him. great picture so i just the reason why i called it the partition policy is because of those stories that i have been hearing and they have been forced to sign either deportation papers or they have been worse and found themselves on the syrian turkish borders being deported to war zone so that's why i called it. understandable from some members of our community in as here writes in his frustration with this and he says turkey should prompt european states to take on responsibility because unless turkey manages the mass refugee influx from syria the most aggrieved side within this process will be european countries that diego your take on what the e.u.'s role in all of this has been should be is well that's a question
4:36 am
a lot of people are asking themselves the e.u. . or made a deal with. q. so. migration flows that we saw in 20152016 when there was a large amount of people crossing on boats to greece and also overland to bulgaria so we saw a bad deal stem a lot of that flow it continues and in a bit of a trickle form but regarding what the responsibility is for european states they fund some of these removal centers according to that land take article that was published today. there is a lot of e.u. money going to turkey to. take care of syrians remain here funding help syrians access education access food funds and also take care of their medical needs a lot of the funding goes to hospitals for syrians and other migrants in turkey
4:37 am
so the e.u. interior has a lot of leverage when it comes to dealing with the situation but at the same time many officials are. they find it difficult to speak out or criticize turkey because again turkey is taking the brunt of the situation and they don't want to. upset anyone and cause another migration especially now that we see advances in and there could be more syrians crossing the border into turkey so there's this kind of tension where everybody is trying to do their best and then unfortunately have these deportation stories which are rising more and more in the news and. well i wish i had the answer for your question but what i do i completely disagree with diego especially on the funds i mean turkey is spent about 37000000000 dollars
4:38 am
this year when data. the us paid our i believe $2200000000.00 of the $6000000000.00 that they promised in the my great deal which is a comical i mean comical why is turkey shouldering the financial burden it's not a rich country you have many rich here in countries that could help out since seeing as they're not doing anything to take care of these refugees the least they can do is provide more financial support. the other promises made in the migrant deal happen also not be kept they had promised turkey because of free travel for turkish citizens that was another unkept promises but especially the financial aspect right now as with the country going through an economic downturn it could really use some e.u. support to do some support from the united states i mean we see america spending $5000000.00 to $5000000000.00 out of all that $5000000000.00 would be a lot better spent given to terri care some of these syrian refugees and turkey
4:39 am
does need money taken care of refugees providing medical services education services food this is all cost money and this is money that turkey right now does not have it doesn't really doesn't need to continue providing these services for refugees now and angela merkel just earlier today i just read that she had talked with the president and also the. pre-clear taka said also expressed concern and that they were thinking about helping this eat up the implementation of the e.u. migrant deal so it seems that they're slowly starting to see the danger arising in it with because a collapse and it could be another $1.00 to $2000000.00 refugees on turkey's story is that i i don't. use of it is obvious from this conversation this is a very nuanced conversation there is so much that turkey is doing that is rising criticism of what they're doing and amid start an ad campaign to try and get
4:40 am
turkish locals to see what the contribution refugees can make to their to society have a look at this it's fascinating. but up by. about . a month i've been on those. shows and on a deadline i don't just sit in them. and say yeah to come. home in the fall for the economy.
4:41 am
because the most. powerful ad campaign there but underlying it all are these very strong sentiments and i want to give you a taste of 21 on you tube this is and ray who says there is negative sentiment towards europe in istanbul in turkey and other external powers because a lot of people feel that turkey is doing europe's dirty work so that's on one hand and the other someone else riding on you tube john who says well the same problems are happening in europe especially in germany many people in germany don't understand why syrians don't go home to rebuild their own country so when we talk about going home we actually spoke to someone who sent us a video comment and. you know him well because he was actually the co-author of that foreign policy piece you wrote this is key and here is his explanation for the options that syrians half there's
4:42 am
a notion that we're hearing more frequently that syria is not safe for return for refugees at least most of it is and this could be further from the truth. factoring in the system under heavy russian syrian air strikes and shelling and that is ruled by a brutal organization called him to see the show there is also cases of state syrian state repression as well many areas that have been reclaimed by the syrian government including east aleppo which which was which took place over a year ago well over a year of actually that the return of basic serves that many syrians rely on coming to terms and because of her city and other social services these are questions that have not been respondent responded to or and addressed and these are also issues that have not been clarified so it gets very competent for sera fiji's so sort of how do we go about clarifying those questions that came mentioned well. as we were talking previously that the refugee problem is not just
4:43 am
a humanitarian problem it's also a political one so assad is still in power backed by russia and iran and we've seen how when you asked do other countries bear response ability of course they do and in both in humanitarian and in political. i mean as and it's really important to stress that because yes on the syrian front we could not build a cohesive. opposition due to a lot of. donor fatigue and a lot of problems within our community but at the same time there is a huge responsibility on the international world because it is seeing the atrocities that is happening to us and it's still refusing and to to act on it and we've seen many many red lines are being crossed and. it's fine to the world of scene i just really when it all goes up through all the political science that are
4:44 am
