government step up their efforts to further cut carbon emissions demonstrators in australia kicking off the day of protests which are planned and hundreds of cities in sydney. schoolchildren they're skipping classes to hold a rally outside the town hall march through the streets they were joined by victims of the bush fires that have been ravaging parts of australia i may say. they have it stating my claim to mankind that some will say it to raise money but it was really really good i mean the fact that i think people have lost limbs people have lost their lives because the last count was to fight the drug out finally. i thought everything through man i was not going to be treated look. like. my right. hand.
and. i was. thinking. really boring but. ok the global climate strike now underway in australia kicking off here in germany in a few hours time let's talk about that now with climate activists clara meyer from the fridays for future move in germany good morning to clarke and more anything nice to see again nice and early the german parliament today set to take up a climate package it's been worked on for a long time now but the greens say they want to see it toughened up they want more provisions before they back it what's wrong with the package as it stands a problem is that it doesn't actually target or tackle the problem the climate crisis we need a much higher c 2 tax what does that kind of package is basically like. it doesn't help us at all. when there are many aspects of it that that will not help us
with this issue at all and we see this kind of package as basically like just embarrassment of the grand coalition ok today is not only fridays for future green friday it's also black friday shoppers across germany going to be packing the stores today your group has come out against black friday why we believe that instead of. going shopping today and spending a lot of money on a lot of goods you can actually join our protests and. have fun on the streets fighting for our future ok now in paris protests is our blocking access to the amazon warehouse today here in germany are we expecting anything like that we're expecting really great strike especially really and a lot of people. showing solidarity on the streets with. ok now it's not only opposition to 2 shopping extravaganzas like black friday of the
fridays for future movements also come out against cheap air travel in cars are you concerned that did you could face a popular backlash at some point. well our goal is to actually change policies so we want we don't only want to make flying more expensive we want to cheapen train travels so actually we want to just. take the moon method moving that we have now an shift of something else that is maybe even more convenient for people so we hope that people will support us and then travel with the train through incentives by the grand coalition with say ok so to present some options that you think that people will will like and can so that they support for exactly if you believe that there are options there and we're not using them and politics is not supporting the usage of those alternative methods of transportation and we really have to change that ok global climate conference
starts in madrid next week ahead of that summit the u.n. secretary general antonio deters spoke to d.w. let's listen to listen to what he had to say. the preservation is unsustainable we are losing the race. emissions are growing there are 2 reports that were recently published with the emissions not. being reduced we have the highest concentrations of c o 2 in the atmosphere only millions ago we had the same situation but at the time with the higher temperatures and the much higher level of the sea we have seen in the 2 days the mission get reports of you know up that we are east at serious risk to not to be able to meet the limits of 1.5 degrees at the end of the century and that would be catastrophic so it's time to understand that we need to be much more serious political will to be able to defeat climate change. guitars
are there a better catastrophic rest do you think that the friday's for future movement has the momentum to address the problems that the terrorist is pointing to. and i believe that if enough people actually will join us then yes i believe that we have to come together as a united and stronger force to actually change policies to actually address politics and that's what we're doing today that's what we've been doing for the last year and the fight will continue ok have you noticed a broadening of your ability to connect with people compared to say the last time we talked was that a few months ago yes i will leave the last time we talked that was before the law school level strike and that day. nearly 1500000 people turned out in germany to fight against the climate crisis to show the government that they were not ok with what was happening in this country and in this world and we just see that we're getting stronger we're getting more powerful that people continue to
support us and that politics will have to listen to us at some point clara marfan for us today thanks very much for coming in this words are you can't. other news now u.s. president says he's restarted peace talks with the taliban 3 months after breaking off negotiations they also have came during a surprise president so busy to afghanistan where he celebrated the thanksgiving holiday with american troops it's the president's 1st visit to the side of america's longest running war. after talks with afghan president musharraf's gone e trump said the taliban was ready to commit to peace. taliban wants to make a deal and we're meeting with them and we're saying it has to be a cease fire they wanted to cease fire but now they do want to do a ceasefire and i believe it probably worked out that way and we'll see what happens but we've made tremendous progress. both china has reacted angrily after
president trump approved measures backing pro-democracy activists in hong kong beijing says it will take firm countermeasures against the u.s. for meddling in its domestic affairs the new legislation mandates an annual review of the favorable trade status that washington grants on call. pro-democracy demonstrators thanking u.s. president donald trump for signing legislation that ensures the u.s. back to democracy in hong kong. there was music in viet including the star-spangled banner. trump a hero. for you as president i'm going on. the hong kong human rights and democracy act that's the remarkable achievement of all the hong kong listen with the courage and determination to hong kong as to fight for freedom and democracy
it's all because of this trump signed into law an act that says the u.s. will check whether hong kong remains democratic as a prerequisite for keeping hong kong special trade status the government in beijing is really angry. sure. is china's hong kong and hong kong affairs china's internal affairs which i'm going no foreign government or power has the right so in something more than they go. through. beijing says it will use countermeasures if the u.s. continues quote down the wrong path. on matter what china says pro-democracy protesters are determined to continue their campaign during their demonstrations of a fog of tear gas has become in many ways the defining image of hong kong police have fired so far at least 10000 rounds of tear gas against protesters tear gas is
used of course because it temporarily disables people but residents say is having a lasting impact on their health. when kathy jew and patricia rented their green room apartment in hong kong 2 months the 2 roommates how did was a good deal price was reasonable and the building in good shape but now they wish they had never moved here coming along my nose often it is in my skin feels dry i feel very uncomfortable and i have diarrhea that usually lasts for a few days. and he'd go to the toilet a few times every night i would hold hold hold out come out kathy things that it is a consequence of the tear gas to moan has become one of the hot spots of hong kong's protests often clashes occurred just below their window that night also that usually protesters would set up roadblocks here police would then come to remove them and they fire tear gas to try to catch the protesters so they could build
a similar way to get. you to that tense atmosphere in the city they do not want to show their face and ask us not to reveal their real names but will say they have not joined any protests since the peaceful marches in june but that does not save them from the fact. the mood is up then you're when they fire tear gas i close all the windows in the doors but i can still smell it and feel uncomfortable the whole sheeple. since june the police have fired more than $10000.00 canisters of tear gas chemical interest in that mainly affects the i use longs and the skin it's use is prohibited as a chemical weapon in warfare that involved in riot control although its effects are meant to be temporary to have been case reports of chronic eye diseases caused by the chemical. they were also some cases that they had no small to begin with but after exposure to tear gas some of the protesters actually developed
a spray like symptoms for 2 to 3 years and there they were also cases that people develop chronic eczema because skin problems going to tartus for a number of news. while the highest risk lies with from plan protesters enjoying a list residents have little chance to escape the consequences of tear gas as many protests happening in densely populated areas some logical call it i saw a doctor he asked me where i live and then he said i should consider moving away if i could show you some insight on that. both of them plan to stay with relatives who some time but moving home is out of question the landlord would not let them cancel their comp. this preview now some of the other stories making news today north korea's state media is saying that leader kim jong un is greatly satisfied with a successful test of what it called a super large multiple launch rocket system both south korea and japan saying
