10:06 am
a personal story my own two sons high school age sons had their school on lockdown just two weeks ago because of a threat of an active shooter that thankfully did not end in any kind of shooting incident but it illustrates the fear that these children are under end the fact that it is high school age children who are leading this drive in the past they have already changed the law in florida and in other states and now they are pushing congress which is tending to be lagging behind the people when it comes to major change in the sixty's it is the children who are leading this change and they hope to push congress and state legislatures to change the nation's gun laws. syria's government is closing in on eastern huta duma is the last remaining rebel held area outside the capital damascus and fighters there on negotiating a surrender deal with russia they now hold reports. they are being sent into exile

10:11 am
five years have suffered enough and should be brought to australia they also think that australians refugee policies are hinged with racism earlier this week peter dutton the immigration minister suggested that white south african farmers who are being kicked off their farms could perhaps be given refugee status here in australia this for a man who has spent his career it seems to people here keeping other refugees in other places out this is what from the refugee action coalition said to me earlier i think the role of the demonstrations we're seeing around the nation today is precisely to say pete adopting is not legitimate he's not legitimate in saying that you know white south africans who haven't asked us for help a more deserving of australian asylum than the countless numbers of people fleeing war zones who have there are thousands of people here and thousands more in melbourne and in other places across australia but in the great scheme of things these are still relatively small protests australia's media rarely reports more
10:12 am
than a tiny bit on the souls of ants and in terms of politics by the governing liberal policy and the opposition labor party broadly agree on the tough policies and that's why not much looks likely to change. or even rental is a spokesman for the refugee action coalition he joins us by skype now from sydney thanks very much for being with us so what do you hope to achieve with these demonstrations. so we'll see people being absolutely flabbergasted at what's happened in the star year with his comments about you know white south african farmers there's also been a massive community outpouring more almost a hundred thousand people have actually signed a petition because the government attempted to deport the tamil family that's been here for four years in queensland took four years and in spite of their being court appeals for them they tried to deport them there is a growing community concern in the sayed so we want to make it very clear to the government and to the labor party who will win the next federal election to study
10:13 am
that that there is a movement in the style you are very very determined to in a short attention and to bring people from you and that it's still a struggle. but that did the forces that you're going up against here and in terms of public opinion and and politicians are not weak to say the least and there is the fact that they these rallies have not gotten a great deal of coverage in australia i mean how much of a you're facing quite an uphill battle here in changing minds on your. there there is an uphill battle let me be ridiculous this is just otherwise about community opinion it's very much on a start i mean in the main the number of polls which is said very clearly that a majority of people think refugees from that center really should be able to start i mean there's a battle to make it you know a city give it sufficient community white and political white and it's right in your introduction we're up against a bipartisan support of the labor party supporting the particular tension position
10:14 am
but that's also changing every every rally in australia union union speakers there will be resolutions of the labor conference saying no july you know this year there will be an out of the by the left to china you know labor policy but i think what's most important is that there is a you know there is a growing movement there is a growing shift in community institutionally with the truth about the churches the unions the lawyers the medical profession there is nobody in australia that supports the hard line position that's me tell you can live the colonization and i think the other point is that the situation on medicine the road gets worse they've got no they've got no solutions the us deal isn't going to offer them a solution and as that crisis keeps drawing the problems for the government keeps getting bigger well they did the treatment of the people in our has been in the headlines quite a lot of a share are you surprised then. that these protests didn't baps get more published and they're getting. look the government sits very high you know on the public and
10:15 am
i think it's telling as i said before that no one hundred thousand people have actually signed the petition within a week about you know about the channel family you know there was literally two stories about that in the media yeah yeah but there is a very big network community network now that he's able to respond you know to those to those kinds of crises in spite of the factory mayor he had three thousand in the strikes me in sydney i think they will get that out but i need to couch the nonetheless a groundswell you know of opinion that may not be ready yet to to mobilize to belly instead the unions you know support the. rather than not sure detention i support you know the rallies that we need to get to a point where they're a much larger union contingent in the rallies to make it very clear that we we are moving to a point where we've got a critical mass in the community direction trying to these policies could speak to
10:16 am
ian rintoul joining us there from sydney. after thousands of people have protested in tel aviv against israel's plan mass deportation of every train and sudanese migrants the israeli government has ordered more than forty thousand undocumented migrants to need in exchange for money and a plane ticket the supreme court has suspended deportations and demanding more information on the plan before it can go ahead. i keep eldar is a senior columnist for the news website monitor he is criticizing prime minister benjamin netanyahu his policies as racist. these people. human eyes and tell you how has being able to shut the border between israel and egypt takes credit for this and his message is that if we don't stop them we will get how familiar and we lose our. jewish

identity here in israel so it's again it's like the spin on iran and posting and taro so these people. just are not part of us and this is the truth. do human is a fiction of people and you know we have. about one hundred and fifty thousand illegal. immigrants from ukraine from europe but they're white and this doesn't seem to disturb you know but. you know. this is part of. kind of racism israel has to tackle and i'm afraid they're going to hell is riding on this fear. of stopping it and unfortunately we'll find ourselves and we are riding on a tight one day where you will become the victims of this type. at least seven
