attack putting the pictures on the internet. you know. when i looked up 15 or 20 people were standing there shouting their slogans for the animals. it all went very fast. i went around the counter and a fight broke out. i broke a rib some of them couldn't work for a week and could feeney the attackers belong to an international association based in the french city of strasburg. there we met the swedish student just because stuff said. you know. it's been proven that a vegan diet is sufficient for all age groups so why keep on slaughtering animals when it's not makes me sick. we live in a system in which people base their existence on mess and murder as i work. every day 3000000 animals are murdered in france. 21 down the middle
11:33 pm
of all the stops and thinks the attack on butcher consumer style is absolutely justified the fact the consumer is an organic butcher and cares about the welfare of the animals is a relevant to him. according to radical vegans the french should also do with cheese because they say dairy industry is cruel to animals. animal products should be banned as a matter of principle in the country of cuisine this causes some indignation. whether mussels from normandy or jump on the beyond many french delicacies i made from animal products french cuisine even has unesco's world cultural heritage protection. also people like restaurant owner florian p.r.t. could be targeted by the militant deacons but he's not afraid he could lose his customers. if you try to all those people

11:35 pm
entire life but if a customer comes back and tells me that the meat was particularly good then i'm really happy it's great i'm at a loss for words but that but most of. the existence of butchers like assume is completely irrelevant to activists just because starting in view of the suffering of animals he says the profession is trivial. limits. setup morally unacceptable must disappear there are no more executioners either there were no longer needed and the profession does appear to aspire to. moderates and the rights activists in france are suspicious of such radicalism forget got here has been fighting for animal welfare for years she doesn't believe that violent action will be successful . when you throw stones at but your shops it's suddenly all about whether you are allowed to eat meat or not. the question of how the animals are actually treated is

a kurdish stronghold supporters of the club make no secret of their true destroyed and many turkish nationalists see them as a threat so when the 1st whistle is sounded during a match like here in the city of tarsus politics are often brought on to the pitch . 2nd turkish division club med sport is getting ready for the relegation battle in tarsus a city by the mediterranean the team boss is about to leave for the stadium and the club president expects a tough awake and. yet again it's for fans are not allowed onto the grounds this has been going on for years now the official reason being security concerns the fans that came nevertheless are disappointed come think are empty security for just 30 to 40 away fans. provocations never originate from member sides this will close from 0 to understanding the peace list. in route to the stadium the team's bus is
11:38 pm
accompanied by an armored police vehicle apparently because the club's president and his players are from the kurdish stronghold. and. nobody's bought the debt we need to travel without our friends every time so it's not fair. and it hurts that you see it in the stadium the police are out in force the kurdish visitors are greeted by the turkish national colors. the match is not going well for the opposing fans shout this is tarsus i won't get out of here again in the end i'm in s'pore loses 50. club president met him kill 1st rushes out of the stadium. at least this time the team and club officials are spared being beaten up unlike in october. the cream is all damp in the players' mood since the authorities banned their fans they've been
11:39 pm
on a steady decline. of course we'd love to have her fans supporting as. i've stopped counting how many matches we've played without them up this will be inherited round to your list. even after the match. waiting fans aren't allowed near their team and kill of us and his players have to wait to the police always let them out of the stadium last quoting security reasons. the kurdish city of dealbreakers home to ahmed spore is set on the banks of the 2 gris river in the past there were recurring violent clashes between kurdish nationals and the turkish state here. the elected mayor of a curve was removed by the government the accusation supporting terrorism now portraits of president aired of on line the streets. met in kill of was a lawyer by profession has witnessed the decline of democracy in his hometown he
11:40 pm
himself has been indicted several times. today you know reading press conference or any of the public expression of opinion are allowed in this city anymore. but the kurdish question needs to be solved if we succeed in that. could become a beautiful place on this earth. but there still seems to be a long road ahead ahmed spore players have also been repeatedly targeted by the authorities striker dennys not he was born in germany 3 years ago he had to appear in court on terrorist propaganda charges he had publicly criticized turkish security forces after returning to germany his car was shot at on the highway by unknown person. whether they're turkish or kurdish many players don't want to play and care anymore give us struggles to find sponsors his club faces
11:41 pm
being financially ruined the new stadium on the city's outskirts won't change that either but my tin kill of us want to keep this club alive as part of kurdish identity in turkey is to kill the oceans we live in turkey with my share of rights here and for a country where everyone can voice their opinion without fear of repercussions because that's what defines are meant to me that on the spot us. he hopes the story of the only kurdish professional football club in turkey continues even with empty stands and if necessary. germany is unique in europe for its 3 tears cool system it divides children into different high schools based on their primary school grades and only one type of secondary school grants access to a university education critics say the system discriminates against children from lower income families and that one's future path should be decided so early on

a role model because he managed to achieve all those things i want to do he's an inspiration. robin meets his former mentor she's from a private foundation called studio on campus that helps some 1300 youngsters from working class families graduated from high school and adapted to university life because in germany these kids don't enjoy the same educational opportunities others do. i think a lot still needs to improve when it comes to equality of opportunity and education . today a person social background still largely determines that person's opportunities in life and what kind of education they get i think a lot of potential is left untapped in this way. catherine philip mentor robin joining us final stages in high school and the 1st year at university that's
11:45 pm
important because studies show that students from nonacademic parents are far less likely to pursue a doctorate. in germany a person's background still largely determines that person's life chances and career prospects more so than in most other european countries. today robbins back at his old school talking to 10th graders might be deciding soon whether to remain in school to qualify for uni or to learn a trade. many of my friends that decision difficult to know. why not they all managed to achieve something as nothing let me tell you about it. and that's what is referred to that's here. he tells the students that 19 of his former classmates went on to learn a trade just for earned a technical diploma and only human serve got

11:47 pm
for me things are not as clear everything is much more open there's still a certain risk several this is a cool. robin has at least 2 more years of studying ahead of him for his university degree. hot stuff on myself i'm up wasting my time doing this of course it would be disappointing to take up a job but my degree is of no use to realize that i should have made a good living like cedric professor but the feeling are you worried about the future yes yes. taking a ride in cedric's to talk golf wondering whether they've taken the right decisions for the future. well many countries in europe are struggling to cope with immigration others are feeling the effects of emigration
