3:13 pm
a reform of the social security service that would essentially see many brazilians most brazilians king for longer not be out. as early as they would so at now now they see this reform is seen as crucial by members of shy ableson aros government to get brazil slating a quote to me back on track but it's encountered resistance pretty much across the board is an unpopular reform because essentially nobody wants to work for longer and there are there are other camps that say some kind of reform is necessary but not the reform on all road wants to paulson and there are other camps that are just completely against any kind of pension reform and said you know frustration with paulson our government is growing these are not the 1st protests that we've seen since he took office but how much is this actually affecting both the now in his government and his popularity. well i mean that's a very difficult one i would say really at the moment the big jury see overall
3:14 pm
positions who both sonorities government really i mean that had been you know sizable processed eccentric but most of the opposition is coming from what we've been saw at the government you know yesterday we saw the 2nd was the minister in fact to leave his government that was the general sense of screws was very much seen as a kind of moderating force inside the government a sort of kind of i don't in the room if you will compared to some of these very extreme and he globalist types we've seen you know the forces inside of his governments who so you know this is a minnesota that's left in you know digital more than 6 months that's that's quite something in brazil while the these protests they may not generate general satisfaction that make you know cool satisfaction ok you know pushes faction so much with the bo's'n aura governments but you know it's it's it's all
3:15 pm
a sawing that things are not going that well the no guns a plan and you know the size of the protests today and the people on the street that would be that's that's another that will be another big story for people who are opposed to his government basically all right journalist as sam kawhi speaking to us from how pollo thank you so much. thank you now the world health organization is expected to declare an international emergency over the ebola epidemic in the democratic republic of congo the development comes after the disease spread across the border to uganda leading to the deaths of 2 people from the same family it is the worst outbreak of ebola since an epidemic in west africa ended in 2016. in the back of this pickup truck the body of ebola 2nd victim in uganda but overall the body and of that missing bomber was 50 she passed away i was off to her 5 year old

3:18 pm
a former police officer and member of the far right populist party. he is running for mayor of gurnet he's well liked around town and has already won the 1st round of folding that got a lot of people worried. for off the car nonstop well you don't have to be scared of the game just look around at the people here at the stand you can talk to anyone or not vigilantes we're just regular conservative citizens and guns them on account of what the world of but many gurlitz residents disagree they're worried about their city's reputation gurlitz with its beautiful old town attracts many tourists it also has attracted hollywood directors some movies have even been filmed here whole till all know martin feeds is worried about how his city will be to see n s a c.h. and of tourist businesses has written an open letter expressing its concern over the a if he counted it although they didn't explicitly name him or his party. we're
3:19 pm
food shorn. guess who's been told we're worried that visitors may be scared off if certain parties get the upper hand when. we feel this way because we've been listening to how visitors are reacting to the current elections that have to include a small. businesses think that if the a 15 moves into the town hall the number of tourists may fall at the moment 300000 visitors a year stop by go on it. for the 1st time in a if tea party member could become mayor of a german city that could send a powerful message to the rest of the country that's why political parties here in gurlitz are working together trying to prevent that. the man who has profited most from the current political unrest to supposing condit octavian or so off the cd
3:20 pm
he's lived in gurlitz for 30 years nevertheless his opponents accuse the native remain you know of not being a true gurlitz are but now the left and greens are also supporting him through their showing of goodness what is good to. look into gurlitz as a guide for how to deal with the future should we remain open or to learn. proposes . there's more at stake here than just who wins the mayoral election gurlitz has become a symbol of whether or not the far right is translating its popularity into political power not just in this city but across eastern germany. or here in germany authorities are working on new guidelines to be able to access data on digital voice assistance like amazon's alexa privacy campaigners are strongly opposed to be idea but the interior minister insists that law abiding citizens have nothing to fear. alexa is omnipresent and hears everything
3:21 pm
a command could come at any time as soon as the name alexa is said out loud every piece of information is stored in the cloud that's made the german interior ministry take notice it wants to explore whether alexa and systems like it can be useful in fighting crime. condi politike needs to politicians can't just log on while the internet aids criminals that's when it's starts what matters it's not about law abiding citizens who have to fear they're being monitored delegates. technically speaking getting ahold of crime related data would be possible but most servers where the data is stored are located in other countries amazon recently made it clear that no customer data would be released without a valid legal order that means it will hand over customer information if order to according to u.s. law american intelligence services are allowed to ask for customer data and pass it on at least when it pertains to foreign nationals but german data protectionists
3:22 pm
are skeptical. the price for the price of these demands would be to make expensive deals with other countries which would then through their intelligence agencies on the ground facilitate access to data on german citizens. german opposition parties one of bigger dangers. in germany everyone must have the possibility to exert completely privacy over their thoughts and so on and communications if the core of privacy in one's life is affected then every investigation a nation undertakes is a failure. in germany the debate over the limits of people's privacy is growing. that has to do deal. to the women's football world cup now where one of the best games of the tournament so far took place last night australia pulled off a stunning comeback against brazil to reignite their campaign and
