9:10 am
a lend of bandits the little gift is. coming. i thank those who make this change possible the new president of the brazilian republic. who took away the protection . at least he's a murderer not a writer not an ideology just writing some newspapers you have the impression he's almost a philosopher a free thinker he was condemned by different italian courts to various life sentences because he personally took the lives of innocents he's a communist murderer that's all for me he will rot in jail for the rest of his life but tiste has always maintained his innocence saying he scape prison in one thousand nine hundred one because he believed he'd be tortured and killed almost four decades on he's now set to return to prison to begin serving a life sentence paltrow dirge on al-jazeera a leader of venezuela's opposition has been released after being briefly detained this is believed to be the moment one was taken by officers on a busy highway on sunday he's the head of the country's opposition led congress and
9:11 am
his arrest comes a day after the u.s. set it back and asked the country's leader most about reports from caracas. the president of the national assembly one way bill was heading to a protest to an open forum. in the state of biting off about forty five minutes away from the capital caracas when he was detained briefly detained by intelligence officers that apparently belong to a newly created special operations why there was elected as president of the national assembly on january fifth and he's been saying that he's ready to take over as interim president and called for elections since nicole was sworn in for a second term in office the opposition here in venezuela has been saying that they won't recognize him as president because he was elected in a fraudulent election the government is saying that a coup is underway in venezuela an attempt to remove me from office the minister of information has said that this detention was carried out by rogue agents that that
9:12 am
we're trying to create a media show for the opposition and victimize one while you know what they're saying is that those agents have been detained and right now they're being investigated for conspiracy for the government this shows that there is a fracture within the armed forces from the very beginning they have been appealing to the armed forces asking them to rebel against the government smuggle promising to pass and to protect them but for the government also this situation could give them excuses to become more radical and take measures to control dissent. children's organizations in indonesia are urging the government clear disaster education in the school curriculum and children died during the earthquake last year because they didn't know how to protect themselves reports. a disaster drill at this school in just after earthquakes happen all over him but of the six thousand schools in only one hundred sixty five have been taught how to respond in
9:13 am
case of an emergency for many children into law aisy disaster drills are too late. so five years are studying intense after the schools collapsed during the seven point five earthquake on september twenty eighth teachers and children say there was panic when the quake struck. that. my mom disappeared into the mud that suddenly appeared around us and then me and my brother to my uncle came in we screamed for help he rescued us and brought us to a safe place it's important to be taught about disasters so we're not confused about what to do and where to go. the earthquake struck at six in the evening this is. the next morning. but i have to be honest when the earthquake struck i was not prepared at all we were all confused we panicked as a teacher even if we face a disaster we need to know how to act i should be better prepared. more than
9:14 am
eighteen million children and one million teachers in indonesia are at the high risk that their schools will be damaged during an earthquake most schools have yet to be built using earthquake proof materials luckily classes here had already finished when this school started to collapse in just a few moments this is a structure and here is a powerful reminder that this can happen anywhere at any time in indonesia but even after a long history of this most indonesians still don't know how to protect themselves when it happens again. that's why violent. and discuss escape routes with victims who have lived through previous disasters survey done by the national disaster agency shows that seventy seven percent of indonesians say they don't feel that their beer. and ninety percent says disaster education is important still the government had to include this in the national curriculum.
9:15 am
until now it is optional for schools to teach about disasters especially in high risk areas so far we've not thought any further than this but yes we get a lot of pressure from many organizations to make this part of the formal curriculum. the ministers as children have to learn so much already that he does not want to burden them even more to him jack after the disaster drill and sweetest song teaching children what to do in case an earthquake or tsunami happens simple reminders that can make the difference between life or death stuff last one hundred zero. homeless and hungry has become a criminal offense or rounding up and finding people who live on the streets shot a hole reports in the capital. the sleek clean boulevards of budapest this is how
9:16 am
increasingly all solitary and government wants them to look no refugees or illegal immigrants and no no homeless people either we are just trying to enable our oath or it is to step up against something which we believe is against human nature and human dignity and we would like public spaces to get their meaning back and operate as they were intended it's not a decision the government took lightly a previous attempt was ruled a violation of human dignity by the constitutional court so the government changed the constitution itself all of which is heartbreaking to people like youngish torak youngish lives in a caravan after he lost his home his job even his family when a house fire and no insurance left him with crippling debt. i'm afraid of it i can't say better unafraid it can happen any time i wake up every morning scared that someone may not come i don't say we can take your stuff away go elsewhere the
9:17 am
government did cysts it's looking after the people being swept off the streets but we take care of them we provide shelter provisions and all the support that is required not a social workers to believe that the shelter system is not going to saw this problem ever and the government still thinks about opening some new shutters but the numbers show that there are more than thirty thousand people leaving homeless and hungry at the moment there are eleven thousand shattered places. cycling's through the city volunteers carrying food and blankets search for those who've not made it to a shelter for the night in a railway station underpass where dozens once slept they find just three people. too many people in this in the shelters so there is a one hundred person and their way is there more than one hundred first in the shadows so it's a too crowded and overcrowding in the shelters so the volunteers means many
9:18 am
homeless people have gone into hiding making them even more vulnerable to the elements. shelters like these this one is a private facility barely come close to meeting with needs of the homeless on the streets and while it's obviously a good idea to get people off the streets in below zero conditions like this and volunteers are doing what they can that's not the point behind the government's decision to criminalize homelessness in hungary one social worker described it as projecting power over the powerless jonah zero budapest village in macedonia has been celebrating an orthodox saint with a colorful carnival it marks the new year and the old julian calendar. masks and costumes that are designed to shock if your are there idea derives from pagan traditions and is believed to date back at least fourteen centuries.

9:23 am
a reflection of the massive public interest generated state you know that everyone . else. i'm hearing free media towns really wants needs to leave it seems arrive at a new phone but she's now the theory on and they are hearing and so she would prefer not to take questions today so please don't see therion crazy coming through the box and she is now going to go see her new home then run. through the doors to begin the first phase of her new life her wish to go to college and study architecture. the canadian decision to grant sanctuary is likely to worsen already fractured relations with saudi arabia back in august saudi arabia severed diplomatic ties following to nagin criticism of the kingdon's human rights policy then in october the murder of jamal khashoggi saw an upsurge in demands for
9:24 am
canada to council a multi-billion arms deal with saudi arabia this deal is now being reviewed the foreign minister though insists that the protection of human rights is more important than diplomatic relations or any trade deal with any c.r. . to. replace. this time if. he were involved in those conversations as. an tentative plan to bring a. suit my friend you see pretty blessed here and on fifty two percent playing. here it was this message from a hotel room in thailand that. couldn't century the power of social media confirmed and an example perhaps for others seeking their freedom mike hanna al-jazeera
9:25 am
toronto. so before we get into our discussion let's examine what freedoms women actually have in saudi arabia that they can drive go to the cinema and watch football but they still cannot make crucial decisions without the consent of a male guardian so they can have a possible car open a bank account or get divorced without the permission of their father brother uncle or the husband and they can't mix freely with men they can be arrested for eating at restaurants that don't have family areas those public buildings all segregated there are also restrictions in sports when saudi arabia sent female athletes to the olympics for the first time back in london two thousand and twelve and they had to be accompanied by a male guardian and cover their hair and women must wear a full length black or buy a robe in public designed to protect that modesty. all right let's bring in our guest some places say here in the studio is now
9:26 am
a. visiting fellow at the brookings doha center and from berlin you're initially skype is my mom. a saudi political refugee fled the country in two thousand and thirteen and also via skype from canada where money a professor of political science at the university of waterloo thank you everybody for joining us let's start right here in the studio with no hurry it is an extraordinary story of our times really just kind of played out like a screenplay and almost seems to have ended happily does that what's your reaction to what's happened. well i mean i think that you know this was a very candid as offering of asylum for a woman was a very sort of smart political move on canada's part especially you know following the canadian saudi spat that sort of climaxed last august when sorry because relations with canada for calling for on saudi arabia to release dissidents and activists but canada can now say look we really mean it when we say that we have
9:27 am
a feminist human rights oriented foreign policy but you know wouldn't it be great if canada then institutionalized this kind of feminist so-called human rights policy and applied it to other women who also you know suffer from domestic abuse sexual harassment who suffer from war and and protect for instance those yemeni women millions of them who continue to you know starve be killed to get amputated in a war that canada has implicitly supported through its continued arms sales to saudi arabia it's a certainly good p.r. move let's get the view from kind of your mommy what's been the reaction to the news over the how it's been unfolding over the. it's been very positive i think you've seen an outpouring of public support for his case here in cannes and it certainly has no one said i have been a very good frankly p.r. move for the trudeau government allows it to say that it's now finally lock of being
9:28 am
a feminist for and how to have this born policy agenda certainly i agree with his criticism of the trudeau government as well but the challenge i think for our planet or frankly many countries is that we're dealing with the rise of nationalism populism there that made it very difficult for countries like canada to have this normal human rights centric type of foreign policy and so i mean kudos to the meetings for doing this is playing very well here at home and i would say it's probably getting camera the kind of attention and want as a defender of human rights but indeed i think there's so much room to grow and frankly the world just a little crazy so much talk rights violations the frankly you know canada just one small drop in the pond right national politics is of course one thing individual rights quite another you just wonder how bad things have to be for somebody to have
9:29 am
to flee best family it's something that you did back in two thousand and thirteen tell us more about what goes on in saudi arabia that leads to this kind of thing. it is very important to remind the people that woman so dearly that when they escape in interviews they're not nice keeping an abusive father they're also scathing tribal in a society where women can be subjected to honor killings they're also skipping the government but also in prison women who escape room in a husband and father and this circle often used in certain you know whether women escapes the house she gets to prison and she can only leave the prison if the bill guardian himself comes and pick up and she returns to the news of the nation to begin to be of use of them against just
9:30 am
a circle so women really have no choice but to leave the country the saudi government made a statement earlier about the casein this is a family affair this is really not just an immediate if this is an institutional discrimination against women women in saudi they're not only leaving from their families that wasn't even from government that is not in action is it possible to put a figure or a percentage on on the number of women who are dissatisfied with the way things are inside although there are those who are happy to live under the way the regime is. the happy when we were absolutely satisfied with the new good mentionable women who are privileged you know from an absolute last open minded man believe you know we're educated to the city to have an education the country travel around to even an absolute freedom but those who really do not represent the majority the majority
9:31 am
the average class let's say the public do not have this privilege women who belong to an average family do not have the same computer to meet is that a woman born in concord or or a wall family was adjudicated lucky and did not have the same rights so the the middle guardianship system is really mostly affect in the average saudi woman not to the upper class women and that's why in the media after. her leave the country we see a lot of one minute obviously from the very privileged but i'm criticizing so it is not new again the majority of even you know we are in the in by and forcing women to. follow the strict shillito laws in this kind of laws are really not forced on us for employees and suddenly ok only in-force average.
9:32 am
no one wonders how this is going down in saudi itself or what the reaction may have been a p.r. truck for. yeah i mean i think as an ira said to the from the saudi site at c.n.n. that the argument is this is this is a family affair it should have been resolved internally i think you'll find not just in saudi arabia but in other muslim countries you'll find some reactions of you know saying well you know perhaps or have should have approached the family courts rather than export this kind of very. domestic matter too to the west and so you know i think that this is another sort of addition to to this long list of ongoing tensions between canada and saudi arabia and of course the you know that quitting chris criticism of the internet from the international community toward saudi arabia but i think that largely will see that the argument as this is this is
9:33 am
very much an internal affair but it's also extremely sensitive right because i understand you have renounced her islamic faith and so this could also be you know the argument from the saudi perspective and certainly from other muslim countries would probably be you know canada is interfering in our law and our religion and remind us what the law is about what you're not allowed to or to renounce your islamic faith basically it's it's it's it's prohibited right it's prohibited so if i could bring you in what do you think this could lead to simply of commentary on law and about how this is just the tip of the iceberg and we've alluded to that so far but could it lead to more women trying to leave the country is it going to lead to a clamp down within the country or on the on women. i think all of the above remember theater canada court accepted the case because she was seen to be legitimately facing domestic violence not because of her gender that she was allowed in because she was facing domestic violence and of course in the case of saudi arabia when
9:34 am
your abuser is also your guardian you are in frankly illegal traffic very difficult then for women to proceed for a double whammy for many women and for the country in terms of what this will mean for other women i will remember yours is not the first to attempt to leave the country and i don't think she'll be the last the question will be whether or not there will be others who will try to frankly follow her path and be energized by her stuff i think that's the case but remember here women will have to leave france in saudi arabia to get on a plane and by going to kuwait and then boarding a plane to try for truly a so i think this is going to be very difficult and indeed i think the clampdown may come from the family from no longer use the families or others who feel that their daughter may indeed want to leave the country they need be more fearful about taking a vacation outside of saudi arabia so indeed i think there's going to be many
9:35 am
a knock on effect from this move by mama you you left the country fled the country what happened off you got how did you get a lot of support from within. no not really but you know strangely i look at the country in numbers that i became a refugee and i have received norma's the e-mails and messages from saudi women one trying to escape the country so we did successfully half way through in dubai in the cart or in the review countries. and you know i spoke also with other side you women who lead the country and didn't reside been instrumental or someone in the u.k. in germany it is really not a new phenomena it's been happening for quite a while and the only difference is that those women have always done that sequence in the you didn't really use the media it was nigger complicity in the risque as much as it happened with the case. but it's has been happening while i've spoken
9:36 am
with so many women who escaped the contrary for the exact same reasons mostly you know it's not often you want to come in they think just listening to speak there about you know the numbers of saudi women who have fled for their protection i mean i think well it's obviously a good thing that you know they are protected and and no longer facing literally a. danger to their lives i think that this is also bad news in a way for saudi women who don't want to leave the country who want to be protected in their own country right and then of course you know if we could sort of elaborate on this and talk about how women's women's rights activists inside or even other countries in the region are critz criticized for being too western right and so this whole narrative about women's rights as a western thing where you know and and so this is bad news for those women who want to pursue this struggle for women's rights in their own country the other thing i
9:37 am
want to add is rather have wraps cases an individual case and she's also i mean of course she has you know as we know we've seen she has suffered. unspeakable abuse and so on in her and her family and her country but she had she was fortunate enough to be able to escape if that if if i can say what she is you had a phone she could sing at her plane ticket and she she she was fortunate enough to know about twitter she was fortunate enough to tweet and have those tweets on change on holiday to us and she was on holiday in kuwait millions literally millions of women don't have those privileges of that's what we can call them and yet they are also suffering multiple forms of oppression and so going back to my earlier point i think this is an it's high time for canada to really show how serious it is about institutionalizing sort of introducing more programs to help protect women from other parts of the world right now within society itself we have seen some reforms from the crown prince but that list that i read out of the start
9:38 am
of the show it goes to show that there's a lot more that needs to be done. absolutely and i think you know it too hard to point out that life for the average woman is so your view is getting better relatively speaking and there have been reforms and i think we need to sort of commend those reforms but the challenge is that it's just not at the pace fast enough for where so many women want to be aware study women deserve i mean you know i appreciate the. point about you know this is not the case for also you women certainly are the class that i mentioned but let's not forget you're so you're you know women are increasingly very educated they're becoming far more i think hyper connected to the world they do travel many of them do travel and so you know this is just not keeping in keeping with you know in modern twenty first century the snotty and south who know that and i think that this is become you know a an important issue for the saudi government responding to recognize that it wants
9:39 am
to achieve the dreams it has of the so-called vision twenty thirty and other ambitious you know social economic reforms that need to start recognizing that it needs to allow women to be both that is in the for the law one hundred percent and not not the case of guardianship laws and i would add that you know in this ambitious twenty thirty vision plan you know it's a book creating an innovative creative society and if you want to do that you need to start recognizing that women are a part of that you cannot have society that is dancing that is progressing that simply is just not there in terms of countries are able to make all the high indicators of sex success the economic social and other life without the full equality of women and so this is i think a national imperative and i hope that the saudi government takes on this there's not another p.r. bad yarmouk or that somehow this is just another stain on its reputation high need to just heal but instead say well this is about high congress to do something about
9:40 am
this domestically and very encouraged by the fact that not just women but men in saudi arabia are. once it seems this is not working for a modern family or a modern man and woman author well it's just not the case and so i think there's just room but we're chatting here and study a bit i hope that the government finally takes up one and a month or is that something that you think is likely to happen the way things are going. well look at the history of saudi arabia the ball was introduced to change into a new only gradually back in the sixty's when the saudi government finally and love women voted even to go to schools and pursue education a lot of them with interests you know. religious groups protested in saudi arabia against that so i believe specially after what's happened also in the eighty's surely i think the saudi arabian government do want to make a change in the sea society they do want to open up
9:41 am
a little bit and give women freedom but they're also afraid of the reaction of the religious sects prayed that they might create another woods he mad like movement. in my create some sort of religious revolutionary movement even a lot of religious people would be very upset if women became in even very dependent and especially in this society like saudi arabia very tribal very conservative especially in the central part in places like the eastern province and the western provinces you know eastern saudi women and women will have in the western part of say we've been really you know let's say a more open society and they have a lot more privileges and we live in or live in a scene or. i think i'm i haven't but maybe this case of might have shaken up the saudi government a little bit but i don't see that. right away they're probably going to be against
9:42 am
little changes like that in the bone which one of them has this is a change that has got to come from within or what role does the international community. well i think we've seen the role of the international community with the case of her her firm she knows she she drew attention from the u.n. and the u.n. it even h.c.r. stepped in and you know this was actually quite an easy case for the u.n. it was an individual case it wasn't you know millions of political asylum seekers and canada very willingly accepted roughs case i think that the international the international community needs to push governments even more than they already have been pushing to standardise or sort of institutionalize again this human rights oriented. policy but in particular to draw attention to those women and men who don't get as near as near as much attention as the syrians for example or the
9:43 am
saudis i mean i think saudi arabia right now is you know it's it's it's it's the state that everyone is talking about because of you know everything that has happened in the last few years but it's really important to remember that there are so many people so many other women in rough situation and worse who are not getting anywhere near enough attention as she has and of course a lot of nations out very close ties with saudi arabia and huge financial dealings with billions of dollars not least the arms trade i mean i think this should also be a wakeup call for countries such as saudi arabia to think about you know do we want our citizens to flee and and you know continue to call us out from from the west and causes this headache or is it better to treat them better and and have them stay in the country and and contribute to the country i think this is also a wake up call for reforming the legal system in these countries ensuring that there is legal protection legal redress for women and other oppressed people and in those countries that you want to come in the. you know i mean i agree completely i
9:44 am
think there are many issues here that need to be pointing out i mean one thing remember here is not the vast majority of society suddenly being under the age of thirty and yes there is a religious establishment in clerics who will want to push against these kinds of reform but they're just simply not the majority in one so i think if muhammad and so man going to really i think energize the base of young people as he tries to do the great need to recognize that this is actually going to be a popular. young saudis and i think you know the dinosaurs the religious dinosaurs just need to deal with it they're just simply frankly not the future of saudi arabia that's one thing the second thing i think is not you know the international community is they were frankly kind of feels like a mogul a talking about human rights i mean you know we're talking about the twitter. that our board minister pointed out last summer that cause us to be frankly ostracized
9:45 am
by the international community including many western countries who you know professed to have you know liberal human rights agenda they were absolutely silent and quiet when it came to canada as a proposal with the saudis and i think it's because of the economic weight that saudi arabia as saudi arabia still the largest and. biggest importer of weapons in the world that means the worth of big business and so there is this county now the pressure because of the economic stakes play here but i think you know time it took a very brave move it may cost us some financial relations with the saudis but i would say that most meetings are frankly quite willing to pay those costs to be on the right side of history and i can't say that's the case for many countries around the world well it's been a pleasure talking to all of you we've run out of time but to great to get your perspectives on this important story thanks very much indeed thank you to our guests. here in the studio business my money and my job thank
