7:13 pm
a free media. hours earlier they had arrived with thousands of others united in anger at what they see as their government creeping authoritarianism and the lies of the state t.v. . and the thick of the smoke bombs the flares and the tear gas desperate voices begged for calm about. this and do not do not rule why are you throwing he shouts. others point the finger at the police i want to see that these protesters are here for you to do for you and you and you for all of you. he said the outrage was sparked by a rowdy parliamentary session last week with viktor orban is government taking over control of a judicial system that has until now been independent and weakening employment rights described as a slave law by critics. for many the seventh
7:14 pm
constitutional change in his many years under our ban was the last straw. in that book i thought i might have a democracy here i'd like to have in a country where i can freely decide what i can do and no decisions i'm a department head and ok ok ok with that we have unfortunately reached the point where the government interferes with almost every bit of people's every day life occasion cultural administration labor and health care the but. the result is piling pressure on hungry government and its controversial leader on a collision course not just with the european union but with his own people. tense times in hungary we can now go to stefan boss who's standing by in budapest stefano i understand protesters are gathering again tonight in signs of the state broadcaster and apparently a member of parliament i was involved in scuffles with the security services there
7:15 pm
what can you tell us. yes indeed to one thousand people are once again demonstrating here outside gary and states around television building and we have seen a consul tensions moments ago actually leading politician oath a lot of the opposition parties he was actually dragged out of the building and another politician who was actually injured moments ago during an altercation we still security forces also hung garion state run television i can tell you also a very say a lot of police here around the building and many riot police people as well so it is quite a concern what will happen later in the evening i think the second opposition parliamentarian last beaten up by the security forces is definitely seen here so worrying signs for him. more seems to come all right let's talk
7:16 pm
a little bit more about these this wave of street protests it's a broad alliance of different groups that are out there and they clearly don't support the government but what is it that they exactly want. well they launched several things it began old school or so we say law basically allowing employees to. gifts and basically allowing employers to give employees four hundred hours of overtime and they only get paid for that it once industry year so that is what sparked it but it has seen six penda to order issues i think about more democracy of course a free media because what people here are saying that this is actually orbán television in order words to television station of crime unit to orbit and people don't recognize them so any more into programming you're right and they find it
7:17 pm
also interesting to watch very little coverage for the protests as well so there's a whole host of issues that these demonstrators are tackling as you instantly have been reporting we've been showing live pictures of the demonstration taking place behind you i wish it was a threat do these protests pose to the government of prime minister viktor orban a very briefly if you can. well i think we have to see whether they can keep the momentum going i think one of the issues will be really will there be more people will be only a protest for a while but i think definitely prime minister was quite surprised that so many people came i mean it's very cold in budapest and people are still turning to the streets and i think what they trying to do now is to make the case a grassroots movement not only in budapest i have to say but also in order areas so i think much will depend on how big it's getting. for now for
7:18 pm
government to prime minister is calling these people mercenaries george soros shelf course the well known feel entry means that he's supporting all kind of human rights initiatives but whether they will get away with it is remains to be seen i think we can expect still more tensions and it more tensions ahead stefan boss reporting from budapest thank you you're welcome. right and we're back here in brolin kristoff this year because there's been a lot of finger pointing going on now regarding these trade wars listen to this the european union says the united states is the epicenter of the deep crisis multilateral trade is going so currently and the u.s. official made the comment at a gathering of the world trade organization in geneva today and other members didn't sugarcoat their words either the u.s. claim china's quote unfair competitive practices were harming foreign companies beijing fired back slamming washington's tariffs. for months now china and the u.s.
7:19 pm
have traded tit for tat tariffs no surprise the latest rhetoric at the world trade organization was heated the u.s. to. dennis share says china subsidizes its local manufacturers while discriminating against foreign ones called china's actions are incompatible with the open market based approach expressly envisioned and followed by other w t o members and contrary to the fundamental principles of this organization and its agreements and quote. meanwhile china said that washington's tariffs on steel and aluminum enable protectionism under the guise of national security. the e.u. isn't pulling punches either it blames the us for the entire crisis in the global trading system brussels is calling on washington to make concrete proposals to reform the world trade regulator as the trump administration questions and hinders
7:20 pm
the dispute resolution system. now let's get more from d.w. correspondent meyer's waiter in washington my of the e.u. says the united states is the epicenter of the deep crisis the multilateral traced trade system is going so what's the opinion on that in washington. well this is very typical of trump's style we see it in his political dealings as well as in his business dealings he likes to come into an established system and blow it out cause an earthquake to speak which is exactly what we see him doing here and a lot of the current dispute seems to revolve around as we heard at the end there the what's called the appellate body which is the highest court within the w t o and in order to appoint judges to the appellate body every country must be in agreement as to who gets to sit on it and the u.s. has been basically blocking all appointments in an attempt to force all trade
7:21 pm
organization reform and this is ben the latest explosion shall we say at the within the in the u.s. being the focal point here now the big problem here is that the world's biggest two economies the u.s. and china are at loggerheads although looks like some of the ice might be beginning to melt give us the latest here india so we saw china recently halt a set of tariffs that was going to be put on cars imported from the u.s. in what looks like was going to be a gesture of reconciliation of ice melting as you put it. what looks like there was going to be thawing the relations that have been escalating and going back and forth so much but now we're seeing this one thing to put it lightly at the world trade organization with the u.s. and the chinese ambassador's going back and forth over who's to blame for the
7:22 pm
current practices being the way they are and china even going so far as to accuse the u.s. protection of the unilateralism so what may have been a step forward may indeed look to be a step back now my short on washington thank you. u.s. president donald trump has again called on the federal reserve nobs to raise interest rates a day before a policy meeting which is widely expected to do so mr trump tweeted it is incredible that with a strong dollar and virtually no inflation the outside world is blowing up around us paris is burning in china way down the fed is even considering another interest rate hike the fed has been slowly hiking rates since the end of twenty fifteen in line with the improving economy. to the aviation sector u.s. plane maker boeing and brazilian based embraer have announced a new joint venture worth over five billion dollars boeing will hold
7:23 pm
a majority stake in the business comprising in briars commercial aircraft and service operations. so ng has been successful producing large aircraft for decades now the company's collaboration with embraer will help it to better compete in the rapidly expanding market for regional jets under the plan boeing will acquire an eighty percent share of the new joint venture for four point two billion dollars and then breyer the rest the two companies hope their strategic partnership will help accelerate growth on the global market embraer is forecasting a sharp rise in demand for regional jets of up to one hundred fifty seats in the next two decades especially in china it has been promoting its new to single git. the two plane makers have also set up a separate joint venture to produce emperor's new military transport plane the k c three ninety. both deals are still subject to approval by brazil's government
7:24 pm
shareholders and regulatory authorities. boeing's collaboration with embraer is also a response to the takeover of production of barbarity a c. series for regional jets by rival airbus earlier this year. while business coming up a little later for now back to lay low. now for many of us a trip to the local market is synonymous with mouth watering produce a bit of haggling and some playful banter but for many women in lagos nigeria it can mean fending off kak calls and even sexual abuse and now they've had enough our social media editor liz show joins me now for more liz. we're going to be joined by liz. very soon there she is good to see you this is
7:25 pm
being billed as nigeria's meat movement to tell us more. that's right leila so over the weekend about a dozen women and men gathered at the market in lagos nigeria and they were protesting against sexual harassment that women have experienced at that market so it wasn't a very large group but still they managed to get people's attention here you see them they were wearing these yellow t. shirts holding up signs chanting do not touch us or stop touching us as a lot of people were really paying attention to them but then these activists say that they were disappointed by the reaction especially from the men and especially from the vendors at that to market here for example of the participants says i was at the market in march and just because we said stop touching us they would as they called us prostitutes lesbians and jobless people they also threw pure water at us
7:26 pm
one landed right on my chest a guy even touched me twice and in fact that they posted some videos online like this one here you see this woman here who has a water being splashed on her the men who are standing around are just in there filming or laughing or pointing their fingers a towards those activists so the men didn't really get the message or they were not really bothered by the protests of those women now liz so i take it this is not just something this district only it's a market so how big of a problem is. well a sexual harassment is pretty widespread in nigeria and activists for years have been complaining about the lack of proper laws really to prohibit sexual harassment at the workplace even at public places and also in other areas a so a lot of women now are trying to put pressure on their local governments and the state governments to finally do something for example last year there was
7:27 pm
a petition that was a taken to the state government of lagos these are women who are saying please give us more protection at the markets they were want they wanted legislators there to do something about the sexual harassment that they encounter regularly and many women tell us that they feel that the authorities don't really care for example the women who participated in the march over the weekend one of them says i think the saddest thing that happened today was the four police officers assigned to us didn't really believe in what we were doing they were just following orders from above i caught them winking at men who were calling us prostitutes i also caught them laughing and women say that even when they try to take action doesn't really help telling them to stop it makes matters even worse i remember once saying that the girls that norman says when they come home to when they go to the market when
7:28 pm
they go home they cry so we should be happy that they are touching us and the women say that they will continue with their fight and also organize more marches thank you so much very disturbing things you learn for us. social media editor. all right we're going to take a very short break we've got lots more coming up. it's almost insatiable. the racialists and it's growing incessantly. the internet that we're a country it would be the world's sixth largest energy consumer. just lies ations dots on the palms going into. close ups in forty five minutes d w. first day

7:31 pm
from one thousand nine hundred seventy two twenty ten hundreds of thousands of women received silicone implants from the french company p.-i pete all those implants received a seal of approval from a german testing organization on now there are fears that even more patients and surgical products could be affected if you never use lisa louise met a woman in the u.k. who received a faulty implant and this is her story. tracy is a survivor her fighting spirit pulled the amateur bodybuilder through the most difficult time in our life six years ago caused by breast implants she had gotten to correct unnatural asymmetry my chest was collapsing my breast implants and ruptured and leaked i could hardly breathe i thought if i can't even hold my newborn baby. what's wrong with me i couldn't even make myself
7:32 pm
a glass of water i was bed bound and when you're stark completely helpless in your youth when you should be the strongest in the most confident you know i felt like a pensioner her implants were produced by french company p.h.p. she didn't know they were filled with highly toxic industrial great silicone instead of the medical variety for days after the implants were taken out and replaced by safer once her fiance left her he couldn't take over weakness she went into depression i detested myself because i had caused this by by having a surgery that i didn't need i could have lived with my naturally disfigured breasts and learnt to love myself i was hiding away and feeling. i don't even have the words to describe how you feel when you when you can look at yourself you know i waited and i waited several months until i could actually stop
7:33 pm
crying over into i could stop morning. that i can either i went through then she decided to fight back and she discovered she wasn't alone tracy joined one of the court cases against german company to fry land which are certified the implants she has already received some compensation. it's part of the healing process that we all need to know that this is actually being taken seriously that there is legal backing behind this finally if i could get my hands on the people that did this to us that took away our lives i don't know what i would do to them. she still has her form of breast implants at home as a reminder to keep fighting this. king disgusting math is what went into the ring and it's chemicals toxic
7:34 pm
industrial chemical. my baby was in my womb i was breastfeeding or something has almost killed you you almost want that trophy to say i survived. tracy still suffers from in explicable symptoms eyesight has deteriorated she has day just of problems and sometimes feels like she's suffocating and yet she has also come out stronger. you have to hit rock bottom to reach your bast because if you live every day as a casual average you never fully appreciate anything and to have this second chance in life it's made me so thankful and i am possibly happier than i've ever been in the sense that the smallest things mean so much to me now tracy has learned to love herself again and also found new love she and her boyfriend are now together in
7:35 pm
this fight so that tracy can finally put this chapter for life behind her. and we're now joined by a journalist with the german public broadcaster and you are she's part of a global research team into the medical device industry and their recent investigation is called the implant files and i highly recommend everybody to go and consult a thank you so much for being here. like tracey there have been thousands of women shoe received these faulty year implants too with some painful and terrible consequences how was this allowed to happen how could this have happened well we had a look at in our investigation and the systematic problems which the two cases like this and that is like. it's a it's a systemic problem. we had to look at what other requirements for medical devices before they come on the market and this is regulated by private certification
7:36 pm
bodies and they don't test the products themselves they rely on the data off the manufacturer and they have a customer service provider relationship ok wait hold up so how are they able to certify something if they are not testing it what are the sort of fire they are receiving. a booklet by the manufacturer with all the data and the description of the product and the description of how it is tested the manufacturer has to do the tests themselves and they do something like a. collection of all of the state and it's called the declaration of and that's what they have a look at and they see is all of this which is in this book that is a plausible is the device working as the device should work but it's not in many many cases it's not tested clinically tested clinically so how is it working maybe in the human body that begs the question i mean how broken is that whole system
7:37 pm
that regulates in the first place these these devices. well it is. it is a system in which ninety percent of all medical devices don't need clinical data before they come on the market and there is no central oversight this like it's all left to these private certification bodies and and the authorities in the european countries this is talking about the european system. they they don't get information from as much information as they would need from the companies of from the hospitals of from the mr ok so if i understand correctly there isn't like one umbrella organization let's say you're in union wide that has oversight over the certifying bodies and also these manufacturers that provide these devices that is nonexistent exactly it's just the oversight it's about right
7:38 pm
now it's about fifty five private suffocation bodies like to friend which was. which was responsible for the breast implants and and there's no central agency as we do have in europe a central agency for some city kills but that doesn't exist for medical devices you think after this scandal. that they will set up an organization that will provide oversight in cases no it's not planned there's a new law which will start in two thousand and twenty and in the past years the european union has been working on that also after the breast implant scandal it was like. it was a big it became big a topic and there were demands from petitions to just have a central agency but it wasn't it was not decided to do that the system will will be will be also the system in the future but what one has to say is well as the requirements for medical products are bit stricter there will be more clinical data
7:39 pm
required right because in terms of patient safety and this is quite shocking actually to be quite honest all right journalist with the german public broadcaster n d r was part of the international team that came up with the investigation called the implant file must read thank you. fears of a recession in turkey are growing the latest figures show october industrial production down almost six percent year on year that's the most in almost a decade on top of that the bubble in the construction sector seems to be bursting president out of office autocratic measures combined with a week earlier mean foreign investors have fled to turkey leaving building companies bankrupt and many projects up in the air three years ago houses stood on the spot in all four hundred people lived here in a building for a made them an offer they could move into stylish apartment blocks on the same site
