enacted because it would be very grave highly joe castro has the details from washington d.c. . the threat and terror of mexican goods would jump to 25 percent by october if according to the trump administration mexico has not complied with this demand to deport more central american migrants now that would have a catastrophic effect on the economy on both sides of the border mexico export of $346000000000.00 of goods to the united states last year half of that was accounted by auto parts and machinery which are both vital to the manufacturing sector of u.s. workers which trump has said he wants to support it start only that on this day when the white house sent to the congress a plan to ratify the renewed nafta agreement now called the us mexico canada agreement which took years of negotiations to work out that it appears the white
5:02 pm
house also unilaterally on the single day may be tearing up that work with these threatened tariffs which ironically that trilateral agreement is working to curb so the real question is whether or not these tariffs truly will happen whether this is an empty threat or realistic it's the same question we asked ourselves a few months ago when trump had threatened to close the entire southern border in response to the migrant crisis he never did that rather he claimed without providing evidence that mexico had stepped up in its immigration enforcement against central americans and it is telling that in this renewed threat of tariffs on mexico there is nothing in the ultimatum that says to mexico what it needs to accomplish to avoid these tariffs so it opens the door again for the trump administration to claim a victory while in essence still avoiding the tariffs if it so chooses and in the

5:11 pm
very very difficult for them you don't have this imagine such an over the years many people like myself coming from the lower middle class have gone to university i'm now a professor in a public university who had the opportunity to study but instead of pushing to improve the education system to have more equal growth in brazil the government 3 said occasion as a threat to monitor something simple i think i will never be able to pay for private education i want to be a lawyer and go to one of the best public universities in brasil but i'm 100 that might not happen. although the protests are only likely to get bigger more than a 1000000 people marched across brazil in the middle of may when the cuts were announced many more marching across the country today the president was on our himself is unlikely to be swayed he's accused professors working in the public education system of indoctrinating students with left wing ideas and urged them to report their teachers to the all corot is a but many have said that this is
5:12 pm
a battle for the heart and soul of the brazilian society or the protests are likely to go on with an increasing polarization of those who support president polls are not all and many of those who oppose him. a new effort is underway to identify more than 100 victims from 1992 mass killing during the bosnian war because charlie cliffs massacre saw more than 200 civilians shot dead and dumped in a ravine by a serbian police units taken nearly 3 decades to uncover many of the remains returned to their families for proper burial paul brennan reports. in the garden of his home in term napoleon 78 year old passes his retirement in silence his 2 sons emin and amir were in their early twenties when they were both killed a crowd of chinese cliffs after 27 years has now been told there remains have finally
5:13 pm

5:14 pm
not easy but this time around stronger still i thought i was done with this 5 years ago i guess this time i'll get actual closure. on 6 umed the bones off forensically examined at the center 112 sets of remains are currently awaiting final identification here the final number of newly identified victims will reach 18180 people whose relatives have spent nearly 3 decades wondering. what their thought we have here remains of slain sons and their parents siblings neighbors or kept it together this is in the way a unique situation you could say that this was a family mass grave. each victim has a story who is a senator was a teacher and. teacher senator was killed by one of his former students and there was another one of his old students who found his remains one

committed the crime and the other one did a good deed. in 2004 the leader of the police unit which carried out the massacre was convicted of crimes against humanity and sentenced to 17 years in prison but it's only now that these victims can be properly buried that their families can have closure paul brennan al-jazeera. italy's economy has been struggling and analysts are forecasting 0 growth this year and. the auto industry which was once the driving force behind the economy. went to the heart of italy's motor valley to find out how carmakers coping. almost every car enthusiast in italy has a connection to fabric or italian automobile e torino or fia. the car manufacturer is now free at chrysler automobiles but still one of the biggest employers in turin italy automotive hub. was the rally's former colleagues to fight for the rights and thousands of other
5:16 pm
workers in the diminishing auto industry here chrysler has temporarily read off more than half its workforce at this plant for what it calls modernization. they work very little and this is very serious it is clearly the result of no longer having the italian automotive industry rather it's become a multinational company. representatives have met unions and see more than $5000000000.00 will be invested over 3 years and there will be a return to full employment this factory was inaugurated in 1939 it has seen the height of its production but since then the company's headquarters have moved to the netherlands its financial headquarters are now in london and the bulk of chrysler's production is done in detroit. once home to tens of thousands of workers too in the shadow of its former production of 6000 cars a day jobs the once booming car industry changed talian lifestyles it made them
5:17 pm
more and more but that's all in the past it more if you feed him and you have it's very difficult to imagine a future for the italian automotive industry because in 20 years the number of workers and the number of cars manufactured has reduced tremendously. it's only so-called motors value. still produces fewer but bigger price tag cars such as maserati alfa romeo ferrari and lamborghini thanks and some entrepreneurs are using it despite italy's skyrocketing public debt and recession fears. this family owned business which used to make seat belts for passenger cars and both is now a manufacturer of seeds seatbelt and motor sport products. i founded the company in the 1970 s. but he sees a future it's only if the government pays attention to it least slowing industrial production would just need the government to realize the big challenge that the country and the industry we have nearly 11 percent and the growing market it
5:18 pm
tony is part of the coalition governments commission for economic development we are nowhere in taxes lowering bureaucracy broke a c. is the worst tax we have in italy one year is not sufficient to change it an economy of account 3 because if you will a job problem unemployment problem you cannot solve it in one year the real test for europe's 2nd producer will be to endure this economic pressure in the now and industry and rebound from a big job without a 0 to. take you through some of the headlines here now to syria now iran has rejected accusations made as a summit of arab nations that it's a threat to regional and global security the gulf cooperation council and the arab
5:19 pm
league largely backed saudi arabia's condemnation of iran but iraq said it didn't agree with the group's final statement. if you should let me have the love. in the midst of this tense time we're rapidly changing developments in a regional and international environment full of tension edge threats we are watching before our eyes the escalation of a regional and international crisis which can turn and turn war if they're willing to offer us all if the crisis is not managed well then we will be faced with the danger of a regional and international confrontation which will bring tragedy to our countries yet his prime minister attended the talks in the 1st high level meetings since the nearly 2 year blockade saudi arabia's foreign minister indicated his country's position has not changed. the lives have yet the qatar participated in previous summits so it is not new it is true this time they were represented by the prime minister the saudi stance like the other countries is that we are looking for
5:20 pm
a solution for the cause of the problems and the crisis between these countries in qatar hopefully there will be a solution if it comes back to the right path. so that ends military council has declared a protest in the capital a danger to the country demonstrators have been staging a sit in outside the military headquarters for weeks the army is also ordered al jazeera is office to close without giving a reason on wednesday a pregnant woman was killed in a firefight between members of the security forces. mexico's president once talks with washington after the trump said he'll impose tariffs on goods from mexico until it stops illegal immigration the u.s. president posted this video on twitter it appears to show a 1000 migrants trying to cross the border trump says the 5 percent tariff will be enforced from june the 10th for being creased every month until something is done.
5:21 pm
it's the stream stay with us here and i'll just. crickets biggest cold winters come certain groups of morals 6 weeks tell me tell you. how much joy you. will be good fun didn't win a world cup play with al-jazeera. for the 20000000 so you cricket world called. welcome to the stream in today's africa news special we look at botswana's decision to once again allow the hunting of elephants then we're discuss what the detention of 2 prominent locust says about freedom of expression it will attain here if any ok and i'm really good and your thoughts on those stories via twitter and you tube but 1st a symbolic way where millions of people are living with the daily disruption of power cuts the country's state run utility recently imposed hours long blackouts
5:22 pm
after a drought left a hydroelectric plant short of water when nearby dam the cuts have had a major impact on zimbabweans already struggling to meet the rising cost of petrol and diesel. i mean what i. got and i don't know i keep a fuel jerrycan here because anytime the power goes i have to close the shop and go to the patch will station to buy diesel for the generator so that i can keep the business running diesel is also expensive and not readily available which is another challenge i only powered up the generator at night so that the fridge is a cold enough to store meat that's the situation in this country. joining us to discuss this is. a freelance journalist and by the way and marshall gore is the chairman of the u.k. branch of zimbabwe's ruling parties and he joins us from london welcome to you both so let's get started with our community because i have a lot to say about this i want to start with this tweet this is from someone who
5:23 pm
says putting it very clearly here and magine living in a situation where half to 3 fourths of your salary goes towards transportation that is our reality now and so for a little deeper taste on that reality we got a video comment from a student who's a master student and he talks about what life is like for him now have a listen. to these are competing for the. talent to take which is a fusion obviously to continue. with. this is. the course of business. this is easy to transport is most probably. forcing people to. the government is so to me.
5:24 pm
let's go straight to the chairman without walking 20 to 30 kilometers no electricity marshal what would you say to these 2 gentlemen who shared their experiences. well 1st of all want to say the park. regrettable and unfortunate to circumstances beyond everyone's control we have recently had a drought and on top of that again we have. but i think the president and the government is taking this very seriously this is led to some changes within the seat of the energy minister we have now a new energy minister going to fortune just was now looking at all of these matters in detail to see how best government can tackle the situation and make and make no money to retain without any further delays it's unfortunate that we are going through this situation we have gone but what i want the message i carry to the citizens is that we are going through massive reform of our economy and in the
5:25 pm
middle of this we have done fortunate drought in the cycle so i just want to say to the citizens we need to also be patient and bear with our government as they try frantically to resolve these challenges they are unfortunate regrettable but they will be resolved. tendai tell us about the reality down on the ground nationally as in the u.k. right now officer he's very involved in. ruling. government in zimbabwe but in terms of what people are experiencing we're seeing one traumatic picture of video something with no power but it's not as involved there. yes it is a situation that we're seeing across the country even in been central parts of the city you know you would find that there are blackouts even during the day you know for a couple of hours it affects the restaurants that have faith offices where people do work faith health centers as well you know i think the situation in the country
5:26 pm
is quite critical and you know the problem is that you know the government is trying to reform the economic situation it's something that people are asking a lot of questions about because they're not being the turnaround that they were promised when the country how the elections last year in july. so there is a sentiment here from prosper and twitter who says that the citizens are justified for their frustrations at this economic malaise but the government is also right in implementing economic policies with short term pain but long term gain what is right it's not always popular and what is popular is not always right so marshall what is the long term game here. i think the long term gain is that the economy is on the mend we've just had what i would call it with the transition program being implemented. huge changes within our economy you know and we have already started to see some gains fiscal consolidation that is up and we've already started to see
5:27 pm
the government deficit being reduced with website to see government operating with more economic responsibility there's more accountability in terms of fiscal accountability we now have new law. which is obviously helped in some way to stop the lies domestic trade but by and large we need more production we need more foreign currency while he ate all these short it is that we have it's not it's not it's not an event but it's it's what is required and we have to work towards that everyone has to work towards that we need productivity we need a new instead approach in how we look at things we need to be more responsible with the few resources that we have we have to focus more on infrastructure development projects so that we can raise the dead the economy so yes it's a period of pain but i envisage this being a short term the longer term. as a period of paying for it as described in the last year how did that sort of how do
5:28 pm
you see that of the chronicle taking over porting we obviously have right now but what else has the pain like happened describe. what we've seen is. there also shortages of certain basic commodity is the price of bread has fluctuated but. even though the government has promised that it would try and keep the prices of certain goods down but you know we actually haven't seen that on the ground if you will shortages that we can experience saying it's been an ongoing. things since last year despite the fact that the price of fuel has gone up the need to still be and they are still shortages and also the country still facing the same problems with the. physical flow of cash you know just simply being able to find cash in the banks people are still lining up pensioners still
5:29 pm
laying on the 13th and 14th every month you know you see long queues outside the banks of people waiting to get their money so this is the persistent situation and you know the question is when does the pain end and community here on you tube gives us a little perspective on that question of where this the pain and he writes in live this situation has been building up for over 2 decades the president needs to act and act decisively but we know that the results won't be overnight so that's one person who has limited patience another person maybe not so much just on twitter saying as we face more power cuts our rulers are losing their power to lie and intimidate us they can't provide basic things like power water or transportation as we like candles in the dark so is their power like a candle fighting against a strong winds of change tendai do you see this turning into mass anger from the people that you're talking to. unfortunately there is a lot of resentment and there is
5:30 pm
a lot of anger and frustration so even though people are told by the government to be patient and to try and hold on and to wait i think the worse that things get and you know the less that people see in their pockets you know people start to get very impatient and the danger of that impatience is that it becomes you know. a dangerous kind of anger you know which could lead to other things but fortunately for now we are not you know people are just content and you know they are still willing to hold on and you know hope for the best for you know for their families but you know it's a tough situation. marshall final word in these last few seconds how would you respond to that. where the final way to start we have to work together as a country we have to come together and call for solutions to the economic problems that we have we're going through a challenging situation but my view is that this is not going to last it will soon be over the inflation will go down probably by the end of the year the economy will
5:31 pm
stabilize yes we have come out of i.c.t. you will just have to brace and continue taking medication but i think very soon maybe soon it will turn out on and out on the corner we need to be patient as a country we need to work together problems we have been there for the last 90 surely the government has been fairly in power for less than 8 months so it would have been a haitian would have. been sure all these things to go on with more in 8 months thank you so much for that i hear your point patiences he thank you to marshall and to tendai for their thoughts on zimbabwe. now we move to plus one where elephant hunting has resumed for the 1st time in 5 years after the government decided to end the ban on the practice the government of president to muck with the mistakes he says at the go hunting will safeguard rural communities that often face herds of elephants but conservationists say allowing hunting or herd afeard to provide a refuge for the animals but swan is home to at least 130000 african elephants but the species remains vulnerable according to the world wildlife fund for more on
5:32 pm
this we are joined from nairobi by portico she is c.e.o. of wildlife direct that's a conservation organization erich for a night is a wildlife veterinarian he joins us from botswana's capital governor good to have you here both i have to show our audience this this is a media invitation have a look here my laptop the date is the 22nd of may 2019 and a surprising announcement later invitation a press conference lifting off the hunting suspension in botswana but i want to go to so many compliments around the world for actually implementing a hunting bad eric what happened. well just part of the challenge that we hear the world complement. about this is. what we didn't take in consideration the fact that the screen was on the wall kokomo communities and then it was basically done in
5:33 pm
a way without consultation. and it left out the communities taking away the only power they had because it was part of the bigger policy of centralization of wildlife resources to promote the photographic safari industry and incidentally puts one s. a safe haven forward for elephants which uses the bucketing strategy but even in the end this is the communities were left out we had influx of ellison's in here is where they usually didn't occur and we ended up with a situation that we have created save enough $160000.00 elephants in areas where they share with farmers where there is no photographic tourism income and he has no such sustainability to us and we receive we got to this stage we more than 90 percent of people consulted during the social dialogue report to decides on the way that to look at the hunting suspension or not we're actually in favor of lifting the hunting suspension but not only that as they were actually in favor of culling .
