executive keri lam but the theme of this rally was free hong kong democracy now these protests are becoming about the way hong kong is governed not just the narrow issue of extradition protesters think timing is on their side wednesday's rally was organized to get attention of g. 20 leaders as they head for their annual summit in japan we think this is a great opportunity for us to force out our minds to all the world leaders who will attend a g atlantis summit as they will all see president season they want their demands put to china's president by the other leaders. in person. earlier on wednesday hundreds took part in what they call the titian marathon taking their demand on paper to the hong kong consulates of 19 of the g. 20 countries all except china we need to towel off and that we need all of their

8:36 am
don't tend to notice if they're there or not but if people don't start paying more attention than the consequences could be catastrophic for all of us in country after country in europe and beyond there is evidence of bees butterflies months and other species disappearing that knocks on to the survival of birds reptiles and fish which live off the insects of the food chain it will inevitably affect humans they pollinate 75 percent of the crops that humans grow 87 percent of all plant species on the planet need pollinating. insects would disappear then most plants would go all flowers more or less would die they get rid of chi parts and dead bodies and keep the soil healthy and do a whole bunch of stuff so essentially life on earth as we know it would come to an end if we didn't have insects this part of england is only 60 kilometers south of london yet it looks like a refuge for wildlife but declining numbers seem to be everywhere measuring insect

numbers isn't that straightforward as a motorway it's traditionally been done is by counting a bug splats on a car windscreen they used to be the case that if you drove around a part of england like this in the summer by the end of the day you windscreen would be cakes but we've just spent most of the day in the car and there's barely a mark on it. the reasons for this are all known no farmers are usually blamed for the widespread use of pesticides in modern agriculture see actually when you spend more time you spend there the more you look and say the 1st rule is no actually everywhere while the u.k. is seen as badly affected farmers here argue this is still possible to protect insects in terms of it's really important have that diversity in the landscape so you can see here we have cattle grazing in fields we have crops and we have lots of different types of crops never have the sign crop in the field twice and then really try and minimise the use of the inputs we use we really try to minimize the
8:38 am
use of insect insecticides for example because clearly that's going to be good for the environment as we're having spikes around in all the trees in the hedge rows all the margins you say it's all that spice along saw growing food a recent global study of insect decline suggested numbers having every 25 years that suggests it isn't too late to turn things around but in the u.k. at least the reason why people keep protesting is that it seems a priority for barely any politicians al-jazeera in sussex.

photographs of a father and his young daughter who both drowned while attempting to enter the u.s. have spots anguish and outrage around the world i wanted john homans report contains descending images from the outset. a final embrace that's a trick to international attention to the dangers that central americans face on their way to the united states this is also teenagers and he's 23 month old daughter valentina they died last weekend in the rio grande the river that separates mexico in the united states journalists who dearly duke found their bodies. in extent in working it was something that moved me deeply because it showed that up until her last breath she was joined to him not only by the shots but also in that embrace in which they passed together and today martinez was from el salvador he was crossing with his bike tucked inside his t. shirt when they were swept away by strong currents his wife was waiting on the mets
8:55 am
can side of the shoreline and survive. something bad like this happen before you see the river and it appears very calm i think that's why the father thought he could cross but the rio grande has a lot of deep powerful currents downstream earlier this month mexico agreed to tighten its southern border with guatemala of the president donald trump threatened to impose tariffs on mexican goods critics say the new measures have led to migrants taking even more dangerous and isolated routes but there's also something else that's happening in the last year or so we've seen a wreck or surge in the number of people traveling with children to the united states to ask for asylum a many of them of doing that because they've been told that if they ask for asylum as a family there's more chance that they'll be released well into the you know ited states at least while that process plays out but things have now changed and people that
8:56 am
are all skiing for asylum in the united states and now being put back into mexico while that process takes place. traveling with children be an advantage in this word spreads may mean the migration. but the most desperate to escape poverty violence in the home. coming. home and. meanwhile the u.s. senate has approved a bill to provide 4600000000 dollars in emergency funding to assist with a surge of asylum seekers at the border a day earlier the house of representatives approved a bill a separate one but similar which the senate rejected castro has more from washington. in washington the race is on in congress to provide emergency funding for this border crisis before money runs out according to the troubling astray by the end of the month and already with the money they have there are
8:57 am
reports of deplorable conditions now where children and families are being held along the border lawyers who visited a border patrol facility last week reported that shoulder in where they're behind bars in soiled clothing without even as much as toothbrushes or soap caring for each other while armed border patrol guards stood by wearing masks to counter the stench those types of conditions are what congress people are hearing about and in the house of representatives earlier in the week congress people passed a 4600000000 dollar package for this emergency funding for the border crisis but it comes with several strings attached that require more oversight of improved medical facilities as well as nutrition and sanitation now the senate version that passed earlier in the day is the for the same 4600000000 but does not have as many strings attached and notably it passed with more bipartisan support and it is the version
8:58 am
that president donald trump will most likely support so what where we are at now is another stalemate in congress these 2 versions of the emergency funding bill that must be reconciled and and again pass both chambers of congress all of which is a tall order given that congress next week will be in recess due to the july 4th holiday. and the 1st 2020 u.s. presidential debates begins in just under an hour with 10 of the democratic candidates participating in miami 10 more will meet in a similar debate tomorrow is it warren is the biggest name of the opening debate while some of the other favorites like bernie sanders and joe biden will take part in the 2nd debate let's speak sandy gallegos i foresee in miami so and the 20 candidates in total from various backgrounds how will they make themselves stand out in such a crowded field. that is
8:59 am
a great question and something i've been thinking all about let's put this into perspective for our international audience we've got 20 candidates from all sorts of different backgrounds some names that are fairly well known like elizabeth warren will be taking the stage here in just less than an hour but some are really all known at all and to give you an idea of how this is going to work and each candidate will only have about 7 minutes to talk on each night so they have a very big challenge as those whose names are known have to work stop which themselves those who aren't don't have to introduce themselves to american voters whether they attack each other is another question people are being asked because that's a double edge sword but this is one of the most crowded fields in democratic history you've got all sorts of people from all sorts of backgrounds has a certain names that are well known and some of those candidates who aren't so well know and may go after people like bernie sanders or elizabeth warren who are doing well and joe biden who's doing the best of all because they've got nothing to lose democratic voters i've spoken to would like to see
9:00 am
a much smaller field so that we can get on with this process of picking the candidate which we're not in the until next year but nonetheless this is an important moment for the democratic party this is a chance for many of these candidates to introduce themselves to the american public for the 1st time thank you for them and the gallic in line for a scene miami. palestinians have rejected the trump administration's $60000000000.00 economic plan saying they won't give up their rights for money the proposal is part of a peace initiative the u.s. is calling the deal of the century it was unveiled by senior white house adviser jared at a 2 day conference in bahrain reports. because your senior white house adviser jared questioner gathered arab dignitaries israeli businessman investors and politicians from the wider world to discuss how to kickstart the palestinian economy over the next decade or 2 reaction when he called his plan the opportunity of the century.
