isn't that true. of the start figuring t w. this is live from the islamic republic of iran for safe thousands of people are marking the anniversary in the streets but many have little to celebrate four decades after the voters came to power we ask what impact us sanctions are having. a small act of defiance as a woman in tehran is confronted for not covering but passing men. the cleric
4:01 pm
a sign that not everything is going the religious establishment way also on the front facing hostile future if they can for a major report presented today at the munich security conference. on freedom for i came out and he was arrested in november during his honeymoon is released and after his birth country and its extradition attempts. welcome to the program iraq is marking the fortieth anniversary of the islamic revolution tens of thousands of people have gathered in the capital for a rally tonight by president hassan rouhani he told the crowd that the country is determined to expand its military. missile program.
4:02 pm
the i mean around maybe celebrating but the country faces many problems let's talk about those with ali and chad a political scientist at the brookings doha center joins us on the line from qatar welcome to day doubly let's start with today's march i understand that people on the march for many children and government workers who were bussed in ordinary people as came on marking this anniversary. well. there is a lot of frustration among the many sectors everyone in society so we've seen also in the past year in those anniversary festivities started the crowds were not as large as expected so this is this is concerning. and let's and that given the partial collapse of the iran nuclear deal and the country's economic struggles do they actually have much to celebrate today. well the picture doesn't look so good there are immense us economic problems in iran there are high prices and there are
4:03 pm
a lot of there is high levels of poverty there are a lot of closures enterprises there is high youth unemployment and so there are a lot of very challenging celtic and problems that were homey but exacerbated by the reimposition of your faction plus the fact that politically. iran is in a stalemate with the moderate government also losing a lot of credibility and also with hard line liners now expected to you know to to be more prominent in the fusion around and so how does one play into the other how does the country's failing economic situation play into the country's politics. because if you look at the protests that have been quite wide spreads over the year of two thousand and eighteen you've seen that. the origins
4:04 pm
and sources of the protests words of economic work ecological but they always had a very politicized slogan because in the fungal public you cannot really separate those fears or can any and policy and politics because it's the same elite that monopolizes a lot of economic and political power and this is also something that the iranians realized this is why all those bad economic protests are very political in nature and so almost like iran and the united states not much in common i wonder though if the whole notion of the death so america that we've seen on the marches that i would if that's how much that has to do with the government giving the people an enemy to emmaus rather than taking responsibility for the state of the economy. well i mean those state sponsored
4:05 pm
demonstrations always try to you know put you know always to portray that those programs actually emanate from the people but as i said those are state sponsored as we've seen during the past year. despite their imposition of u.s. sanctions and quite hostile of the policies from the drug administration iranians have tended to blame their own government for the economic problems at home so there's not really a rallying around the flag the fact that we've seen a decade ago during the bush administration years for example so there is some kind of a you know there is huge frustration that people do blame their own government for the. force of good soaking through thank you so much for joining us. well it's not just. causing growing discontent within iran across the country women are rising up against the strict religious rules of jerad read more on the women
4:06 pm
defying the country's leaders that's right so a couple of years ago this this movement called wyatt wednesdays wednesday sprung up and basically it was in protest against the strict laws in iran governing what women can and con to wear and basically women wore on wednesdays or some even took off the job which is of course beaten and then they did these protest videos to social media sending a message to iran's religious leaders that they're not going to submit to what they say is oppression and i just mentioned that these protests type place on wednesday but they have sort of sprung up to take place more often than not they're much more frequent so women saying we want to walk around without a huge job any time any place but it doesn't come without consequences last year an iranian woman was sentenced to two years in jail for what was called encouraging moral corruption but this goes beyond just covering the head that's right it
4:07 pm
applies to things like dancing as well because there are strict rules laws governing dancing in iran women cannot dance in front of anyone else except a male relative and of course this is encouraging acts of civil disobedience which also make their way to social media and videos like this popping up more and more frequently they typically uploaded when authorities punished other people for dancing so people post them in support of others who fall foul of the law people like these young men and women some of them were sentenced to six sentences suspended prison terms back in twenty fourteen when they appeared in a video dancing to for real williams song happy. dancing in public in iran can carry a prison sentence up to two years in jail and so are these protests changing anything
4:08 pm
look we are asked that question to our fozzy department of torture valid today and basically they're saying that these acts of civil disobedience that make their way to social media a sort of contributing to a growing contempt of authorities and religious leaders and a culture of fear it lists and lists we have a video. of a woman in a subway station who was standing up to a cleric telling her to put on him he shot and then we can see other men telling the cleric to leave her alone coming to defense essentially and another situation where a man is telling off a cleric because this play we're told this man's wife to cover up so it's really interesting to see how this previously unquestioned authority to people like clerics is starting to change in iran a general great thank you. because

4:18 pm
a lot of the story that people don't know he has maintained a lot of privacy since he's left the public eye and he has really tried to even when he was in government keep his fingers fingerprints very clean it's really there was not a lot of records available as to what exactly he influenced and what he did in the movie dives into exactly what his influence was what his role was in the administration how big his influence was and how that has carried forward to the modern political era so what else can we look forward to today. well i personally in the next couple of days i'm looking forward to a film called amazing grace which is a documentary in the competition that was shot in january of one thousand nine hundred seventy two it is about aretha franklin who just left us in august of two thousand and eighteen and it is the filming of the recording of her most famous album called amazing grace which is still the best selling gospel album of all time and me personally as a detroit are i am very much looking forward to lapping up anything i can get

that's left of the queen of soul. will enjoy. international film festival thank you . football at ib has been released from custody in thailand after his birth country bahrain withdrew its request for his extradition was to be claimed asylum in australia and twenty fourteen say he feared torture and even death if you sent back an international campaign for his release began when he was arrested in thailand last the hakim al-arabiya pictured here leaving care leaving custody in bangkok the bahraini footballer is set to return to australia after three long months spent in a thai jail whole war even though he was playing in a televised devised what we would like what we would like to do know is to think in a greatly respect the process that they have that they have had to work through those thoughts were echoed on twitter by al-arabiya that increase that increased
4:20 pm
pressure on thailand internationally. on a radio fled bahrain on political grounds in twenty fourteen and was granted refugee status by australia his family feared extradition would result in his torture and possibly death at the hands of bahrain's justice system but as a result of monday's ruling he's now heading home to melbourne. let's get more on this from a hundred or sati he's from faith pro the international football players union which is part of the save hakim campaign welcome to d w what was your reaction when you heard the news oh huge relief for joy it was something to say this is the kind of thing we work on day in day out it's really something special. now. there from international media in the main time the main time for more than two months we were working with a wide coalition of human rights organizations wider football community governments
4:21 pm
and so in the end i think buffering which effectively had hakim in an iron grip for so long seeking his extradition relinquished and handed over to thailand the idea that they can simply release him to go back to australia and i think that's in the end what it came down to the government's agreed that hakim should be freed that played any part in his arrest. but he is let's say the rest of it than the fact that he was wanted back in bahrain for it's pretty clear to us at least here a fifth broke that it was not a credible case but there was a more fundamental issue at play and that was the fact that he is a refuge a refugee according to all the protection that entails in australia and he should be free to travel and if he goes to thailand he should know that he can safely go there without being sane and extradited back to the country which he said he fled because he claims he was tortured this so in the end of we're happy i mean this is a day to celebrate for us and and that's really the point here and we've all but
