similar protests in recent months led to clashes that caused multiple deaths israel called the protests a dangerous provocation and said that hamas would bear the responsibility for any violence. the first casualty came even before the protests got underway israel's military said soldiers opened fire on two men who approached the border and acted suspiciously during the night one man was killed and another wounded the slain man's brother said he was a farmer. coolio look on that. he went there every day to pick pursley in the morning. since it means haven't seen him since he's been working there for six or seven years. but nothing ever happened to him when the jews started shooting. what happened this time i do not know. the protests the great march of return and says they will culminate on may

2:12 pm
despite strict german export regulations. this plant on the vacation island of sardinia manufactures these bombs. germany plays a role through the export of weapons especially into regions that are unstable where there is conflict where there is repression most obviously today the middle east and plays a role in ensuring that those conflicts are remarkably bloody profits flowing to the german companies coffers. declined repeated interview requests it insists it follows the laws of the countries it operates in. the german government also refused to take a stance on the company's overseas subsidiaries for the green party that's an untenable position. still tied to a plea cynical of these defense companies to complain about the strict german regulations while they found ways to dodge the rules such as through overseas

2:15 pm
forefathers banded together and started a cooperative that built and operated a flour mill one farmer could not have done it alone. in the grain from our region the old mountains is very coarse it was difficult to sell to nearby dresden there was very little profit so they said we need our own mill so we can process the grain and then we can make the bread as well. as for. the mill and the bakery have ensured a thriving business for the farmers for many years now some seventeen businesses are now part of this successful cooperative. the idea of the cooperative goes back to free trade vilhelm hif isn't in the mid nineteenth century he promoted it as a way of overcoming the poverty faced by farmers in his region best of. since then the idea has spread to other parts of the economy new industries like sustainable energy have also adopted the model for most cooperative work on

a majority moon bases this can have this a regardless of their stake. in the cantante both in a small when decisions have to be made to get everyone's opinion has equal weight. that applies to the world's largest cooperative gone in spain it has around seventy five thousand men this eighty percent of whom a joint owner has as with any business cooperatives like monder gone can suffer in times of crisis but because all members have an equal say they usually avoid mess layoffs. still a private company it has to be profitable but the number one goal is always to support the members so there are always two sets of objective to consider economic objectives and social ones. to co-ops it's not just. about the bottom line. and maybe that's why they often outlast private companies that are
2:17 pm

2:19 pm
last few days the number of people seeking to change the u.s. sees two pesos at bank offices and that they cost has risen this is due to the false information that in the next few days this you see will be withdrawn from circulation as part of the monetary unification. if you want to. the government says this see you see the convertible currency commonly used by tourists on the island is here to stay for now anyway but back in december cuban president hope kustra said he wanted to see the convertible currency become history . will step down as president on april nineteenth and many cubans feared he would abolish the currency before leaving office. according to german prova all good things come from. the same this weekend we don't sure about this funny at monaco we keep you posted because china is defying spacelab one is said to plunge
2:20 pm
back to earth this weekend the ten meter long space station is believed to be out of control and it's unclear whether where the end to its atmosphere china's space agency says a most of the space lab will burn up on reentry and is unlikely to cause any damage the tiangong has been in orbit since two thousand and eleven joining me now from the european space agency for short is the director gendron verna now mr one of the first to be fit tell us about this one. so the young come one is space station which is all waiting in the earth's and usually that's a useful case if these stations are low enough in orbit then they are always a little bit decelerated by the atmosphere and in this case calculated that it will come down on sunday and by that of course it's
2:21 pm
a little bit of movie and that's it because we're hearing the still more controlled entry now for is that for a limit this sounds quite dangerous you know uncontrolled means that we have no link and that's at least what we have also as an information from the chinese to control it any longer that means it is operating and as it is decelerated we don't know exactly when it will be entered into atmosphere if we do a controlled re entry which we do regularly was old satellites right and then we defined very clearly where to where there should be and we enter into the atmosphere and ratcheted the earth but in this case we don't know and as i said we expect reentry on sunday at noon but to a variation because we don't know exactly what the atmosphere looks like according to the sound of the next days and therefore we don't know exactly where bill come down i mean an object which is about ten need is long winning or losing tons is
2:22 pm
falling towards. i would be violent how want to die you. so first of all i can say for a lot of people on earth there is no danger at all because young going is all beating in an inclination way as we say of forty two degrees that means it will not go for instance to berlin but it will it may hit this hasn't part of europe it may hit all the as a sudden and then that even in. africa is part of it but as we know there's a lot of water in between in the oceans so there is also some probability that it will fall down not just in the ocean and we don't recognize it but they say of course there is also some from the calculation point of view some per probability that it costs on solid ground that it hits or so some people it is possible we cannot exclude that one the chinese authorities say that you know they are saying
2:23 pm
that that would be a splendid show when the debris come down because it's like a meteor shot is that how you see it that would be as you would see it and most of that we expect we don't know exactly the construction of young no one but most of the aluminum and we can attack metals and they will burn up when we enter into the atmosphere but there might be a fraction which is hitting the surface of the earth so it is like a meter and that's a good comparison. actually generally john and then all of the european space agency e.s.a. thank you very much for joining us from paris thank you. and not a bit of sport in the two thousand and eighteen world cup in russia is kicking off in just seventy six days and fans across the world i'm getting a sneak peek at the trophy the fifo world cup trophy wants to hit argentina in the run up to the tournament where it was reunited with some old friends that included
