9:05 pm

9:06 pm
a changing situation by the minute. yes so what we're seeing is that the numbers continue to go up in brazil both the total number of cases and the number of deaths we're looking now more than $41000.00 people have been confirmed dead ambrosio but everybody knows that and even the government has confirmed that the real number might be much higher there hasn't been a lot of testing being done in brazilian cities a lot of people who die especially in areas like the amazon where the government hasn't been able to test these people confirmed that those days were also related to cope with 19 that explains a lot of the concerned by the w.h.o. also the fact that in these big cities like some paulo or rio de janeiro malls
9:07 pm
and commerce is reopening we have seen crowds in the past couple of days of brazilian shoppers going out to the streets not everybody there is that respecting this and seeing measures or using masks so this is very concerning about what will happen in the coming days and weeks now the silver lining as you said in your introduction as we heard from the w.h.o. is that so far the health system has been able to cope with the situation but the situation is critical in many intensive care units and of course we're going to have to see how all this will play out with president here both when i was been minimizing the effects of the pandemic in this country he has strengthened to get out of the w.h.o. just like the u.s. president donald trump done recently and he called on his followers even say supporters to call them followers yesterday asking them to go into
9:08 pm
a crowded hospital ospital is in actually find out if it's true that all these people are dying of 19 or if this is just an hour. they're ploy by the opposition who are trying to kick him out of office. as you mention you know there's a president who's trying to debunk the gravity of the situation his administration has criticized day in day out his family is under investigation for corruption and there are rumors now that the military is getting very uneasy about the way he is performing and that's a real concern for a democracy like brazil. absolutely. being on their military dictatorship until he is also now is very close to a part of the military he has brought a number of generals into his government and even is son recently was a congressman who is also under investigation for corruption has called for the
9:09 pm
military to intervene and actually speaking to a blogger in past days he said that at this point if the situation the political tension doesn't change in the country it's not even any more a case of if the military should into reading but the way in so what we're seeing is that there is a deepening political crisis in the country together with the pandemic these 2 crises are feeding on each other amplifying each other we've also heard from louis said. a. 4 star general ruckus was there secretary of the governor government both so narrow who in an interview to the for you they saw apollo one of the main. papers in the country he has denied the possibility of a military intervention but at the same time he told the opposition to stop stretching the rope which essentially means stop pushing the envelope so much if
9:10 pm
they don't want something to happen in the country so we see that tensions are rising also politically. there's also a number of calls for both scenarios to being impeached and the situation is very tense and we're going to have to see what happens in the coming weeks with these 2 crises feeding on each other and listen dr pinsky in bogota thank you. people message has a pandemics been devastating for indigenous people across latin america but some are fighting back hundreds of tribes living deep in the amazon rain forest are difficult to access to or test for the disease now the yellow here shows where the tribes live and the green protected land some of the most vulnerable are in brazil but many have blocked public access to their villages but rights groups say that they are still twice as likely to die from the virus than of the brazilians in mexico the indigenous population of 12700000 often use community radio to share information about covert 19 in remote areas ecuador's can be
9:11 pm
a population of 80000 or guarding the entrance to their town they have any one infection and in colombia's cloud forest 10000 members of the tribe have also set up guard posts in the 1st report in our series on covert nineteen's impact on indigenous people we begin in brazil the rights groups say deaths among the most vulnerable tribes have increased more than 5 fold in the past month to raise about reports. of more than 100000 people from more than 300 tribes these are members of brazil's indigenous communities corona virus is spreading fast among them and now they're struggling to cope with the seas. they have a specific word for indigenous people for salmons for us to perform our rituals and our medicines but there's nothing like that here we have to go to other hospitals for a referral when you get there they don't put on the documents that we're indigenous
9:12 pm
. this hospital in my analysis has a designated area for treating indigenous patients but doctors say the biggest problem is not here. the disease is spreading into the interior and now it's going to hit the municipalities the river communities and the indigenous in the case of indigenous people they'll be brought here and why do we have an indigenous ward because we need to learn to treat people that are different differently and to value what sounds from the amazon with the state with the highest concentration of indigenous and brazil the highest concentrations of indigenous in the world and geo saying that death toll among indigenous people in brazil rose from 28 to nearly 200 in just one month and they expect the number to rice we spoke to sonya who is in the city of d.p. now. she says many communities are fearing extermination. there is an increase in illegal miners and loggers and they bring in the risk of infection we
9:13 pm
don't have the privilege to care for the pandemic alone we have to do this and at the same time keep on fighting with historical problems we face that will never dissolve like deforestation and invaders in our territory deforestation has also increased in the past month compared to previous years illegal miners and loggers are pushing deeper into the jungle brazil's president has made it clear he wants to open up the rain forest for business and the discourse is an incentive to those who want to expand brazil's agriculture frontier a video released by the supreme court during an investigation against the president shows his environment minister expressing the government's plans. to susan we need to make an effort while we are in this car moment in terms of prasco overage because they are only talking about corporate and push through and change all the rules and support for norm's environmental groups say the government wants to move
9:14 pm
forward with a legislate. of agenda but when we can say guards against the incursion on indigenous lands. and for these communities it means their livelihood is seriously had risk threatened not only by epidemic that continues to spread but also by a government that is ignoring their calls for help. ameri it has also arms its national health policy but she says the pandemic does expose flaws in the health care but governments of long failed to address we are seeing exposure of long standing inequalities in access to services across the board and so if you like we need to see it to terror pro-choice we need to see governments responding by investing more in health care across the board redress in those inequalities removing user fees reversing privatization but we also need to push and work in partnership with communities to. enable and push governments to
9:15 pm
respond appropriately to design approaches in partnership with indigenous people so that they are tailored to their needs and are culturally appropriate and excepted we need to see service more health workers recruited from indigenous populations and trained to deliver services so again that they are accepted and as i say we crucially need to remove those financial barriers to access across the board but particularly for indigenous populations who struggle to afford those and if we don't we're going to see the very stark inequalities that that were already in place before the coronavirus pandemic become even starker and more entrenched in the days and the months ahead. well in part 2 of all series on covert lottie's entitled indigenous people will be in mexico where a community radio station is helping to get the message out about proto virus to indigenous people in the language that's on saturday attended g.n.a.t.
9:16 pm
. the situation for the day's other news and police in whole call have dispersed hundreds of pro-democracy protesters from sites around the city new legislation makes it a criminal offense to china's anthem which activists say violates their freedom of expression divya kampala reports. this place like this are set up in almost all districts of hong kong it charts the timeline of the protest movement starting from june 12th to 2019 until present day june 12th this is significant day because it is seen as when the protests reached a turning point going from mostly peaceful marches and demonstrations into neared daily violent confrontations between the police and protesters on this day
9:17 pm
a year ago protesters surrounded the government headquarters they were debating a controversial extradition law that law would have allowed hong kong suspects to be tried in the opaque courts of mainland china which are communist run the law was eventually withdrawn but on that day human rights activists and protesters say police used excessive force to break up the protest that changed the nature of protests and the police tactics both sides upped the ante in the coming months and just in memory of our movement of like one fish in a foreign place only one year anniversary so we're here to support our nation kankar march demonstrations to the rallies are planned for this day but canceled due to social distancing restrictions. currently only 8 people are allowed to gather in one place this gives the police the impetus to break up this protest that at any moment there's a very heavy police presence around those most people here are defying those orders
9:18 pm
to be able to express themselves and making it very worried about the power of the police that is because as we can see it is getting wider and wider and there is no effective mechanism to exercise checks and balances on them and they can just arrest anyone they want they can just stop and search because you are young and you're wearing black and over the past few months the protest movement seemed to have subsided it gave time for the police to review their tactics they now try to shut down protests as soon as they happen with large numbers of police coming in and breaking up gatherings and that's just what's happened here but the protesters are just as fluid they just move on to other areas and carry on chanting slogans and regroup again at another point. of the u.s. states of new york signed sweeping police reform bills in response to a nationwide protest against the death of george floyd country como says the
9:19 pm
package is the most aggressive in the nation will hold police more accountable. police reform is long overdue. and mr floyd's murder is just the most recent murder this is not just about mr floyd's murder it's about being here before many many turns before well gabriel is on to a correspondent joins me now from new york one does whether this will actually change the ground reality and whether those that want change will be warmly welcoming what the governor has to say. yes so far it seems like they are at least the protesters they have been calling for reforms and change and this is governor andrew cuomo reese response to that he's been saying for several days now that new york would be leading the way in police reforms and this is how
9:20 pm
he plans to deliver on it he signed a series of executive orders that among other things ban police from ever using chokeholds here in new york as well as another executive order that would release the names of any officers that have disciplinary actions against them up until now there is a better law in the books that shields officers from their names being released on any disciplinary issues that they have within the departments and then also he said he's going to be appointing the attorney general as an independent prosecutor to investigate any civilian deaths at the hands of police beyond that though what cuomo has done is he has offered a wide ranging police reform package but he's asking all 500 police departments in the state of new york to reform themselves and to come up with their own plans on how they want to reform get stakeholders to be involved in that and
9:21 pm
then present the plan a year from now in april and he said they have to do this in order to continue to get state funding if they don't do this they risk losing state funding these police departments this is a little more of what the governor had to say there is no quick fix to this there is no stop here gas. change the uniform that's not what this is about my friends and it would be a mistake if we went down that path this is stem mic reform a police department's. this is sitting there taking a look at exactly what they do and have been doing and looking at it through a new lens of reform and reinvention because this has been 4050 years in the making now weather while there are about 500 different municipalities in the state of new york that have their own police
9:22 pm
departments of course the biggest one is the n.y.p.d. the new york police department the biggest police department in all of the united states they have an annual budget of about $6000000000.00 many protesters have been demanding that $1000000000.00 of that be directed into social programs education and other things outside the police department while that wasn't directly addressed by the governor and all of these new rules put into place by the governor for new york will also of course affect the new york police department as well the biggest in the country and so while a lot of protesters have said they want reform they clearly are starting to get it from the governor and it's a sign here that at least in some degrees and some degree the protests are working . under way in new york thank you let's stay in the u.s.
9:23 pm
and move to the city of seattle where demonstrators that have blocked streets and set up tents to protest against police brutality following the death of george floyd they've gathered in what's being called an autonomous zone it's free of police under an agreement between protesters and the city's police department president trump has criticized the arrangement threatening to take back the city if local officials don't get a white house correspondent kimberly how it says trump is promising to be the law and order president but his words are often stronger than his actions. when it comes to the so-called autonomy zone the chads as it's called in seattle is about a 6 block radius area of capitol hill in seattle what the president says essentially to the mayor as well as the governor if you don't take back your streets i will and the question becomes how exactly is the u.s. president going to do that he does have it his disposal something called the insurrection act it's not been uses the early 1990 s.
9:24 pm
the president repeatedly intimated that he may take that course of action we should remind our viewers that the military is not to be turned on civilians in this country that that is a policing role so really they can act to support with the exception of the insurrection act where things could be stepped up but the problem for this president is that we've already seen that he has had his defense secretary his chair of the joint chiefs of the military sort of breaking ranks with the commander in chief the defense secretary being very clear that he does not believe now is the time to use the insurrection act so the u.s. president continues to threaten to take action as capitol hill and in seattle as well as the mayor and the governor say they will push back. to the u.k. now where the british prime minister boris johnson has accused extremists of hijacking the black clive's not to protest demonstrators prepare for another 3 days of rallies starting on saturday at a twit suppose the prime minister described the a time some please and violence during protests last weekend was intolerable but
9:25 pm
the parent also defended the protection of british monuments including a statue to instant churchill from vandalism he's urging people against attending this weekend's demonstrations what's happening with these these demonstrations is that a tiny minority or a growing minority. have hijacked. and they are using them as a pretext to attack the police to to cause violence and to cause damage to public property so my unforeseen my message to everybody is that for all sorts of reasons they should not go to these demonstrations well indeed barber is in central london he explains why the prime minister has felt compelled to speak about the statue protests he has said that it's absurd that the statues need defending this is in light of what's happened in the past week particularly last sunday in bristol in the south west of england where a statue of
9:26 pm
a slave or edward colson was pulled down and thrown into a river by black lives matter protests as it sets off a whole debate about how the country memorializes remembers its past who deserves to be elevated and what happens to controversial figures winston churchill of course notable for his role in the 2nd world war boris johnson saying this is a permanent memorial to his achievement in saving europe from a racist and fascist power but of course he has got his critics around the country for other episodes in history to. now the new zealand city of hamilton has removed a statue of the british naval officer it's named after captain john hamilton led a deadly attack on the settlement of indigenous maoris and then $860.00 s. the decision was made a day after tribes for it to be removed the tribe says the statue was a reminder of the colonial invasion. well still ahead on al-jazeera

all of libya from the war criminal have to ask. european leaders have called for a cease fire with the german ambassador visit in half there in eastern libya on wednesday and then tripoli the day after tomorrow. unfortunately the international community stood by while have to our sort of tripoli and killed civilians the feeling among libyans is they no longer trust the international community countries who recognize the g.n.a.t. but support have to like egypt can't be trusted the u.n. support mission in libya has said that the d.n.a. and half there's military delegations are now fully engaged in the 3rd round of talks but with both sides very strict conditions it is unlikely we will see a cease fire in libya any time soon now traina al-jazeera misrata. reports too in a report to the un security council has found that missiles used in attacks on saudi arabian oil facilities and last year were of iranian origin to hold hands
9:37 pm
previously denied any involvement or diplomatic editor james baker reports are from u.n. headquarters. this is a report by the u.n. secretary general antonio good terrorists to the security council it's not yet been published in algiers obtained a copy and it's following the work of the u.n. panel of experts who have been looking into a number of attacks on saudi arabia on oil facilities and on an airport and they conclude that some of the materials used in the attacks may have been transferred in a manner inconsistent with the security council resolution 2231 that's the resolution in shrine and the 2015 iran nuclear deal of course they can't make a definitive judgment on that because it's not clear to them when exactly these materials were transferred from iran whether it was
9:38 pm
a breach of the nuclear deal what i think is important about this is it gives fresh ammunition to the u.s. that what is a very politically sensitive time the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. kelly craft is preparing a draft resolution which is very controversial she want to extend the arms embargo on iran and she's making threats she's saying if she doesn't get her way then she's going to trigger a provision of the iran nuclear deal called snapback bring all the sanctions international sanctions against iran back into force you may ask well how can the u.s. do that because it pulled out of the iran nuclear deal it is a very tricky legal position and certainly legally doesn't seem to be any right now . there's certainly going to be a big dispute if they go down that route and it's going to be a dispute that pits the u.s. is closest allies its european allies on the side of russia and china against the united states. the u.n.

scale of the response that endemic but the agencies do not have the funding required to deliver the skill needed nor to continue existing programs. sarah by saloni hunty is the country representative for yemen at unicef she says it's getting worse by the day for 90 percent of children in the country who need help. the crisis of cataclysmic proportions you have a preexisting situation where children were already in dire need and now children are confronted with multiple issues in just adds to their complex in very difficult lives that they that they leave the children in yemen are worse off than all children in the world and for us this is an emergency adequate testing in yemen we know that we don't have. all of the communities with access to testing and so definitely what we're hearing as all we're seeing as the numbers being officially declared do not tell the story that the children are facing children are facing
9:41 pm
multiple issues so for example i would give you children are for now out of school and you would say well all should now the world out of school for the most part but the children in yemen almost 6000000 of them who've been out of school since march schools are probably closed had no access to any distance learning no access to education online no form of education at all in addition to that they're facing a conflict we have active lines right now you can't talk about children playing you can't talk about today even having some sort of recreation so at the end of the day the children of yemen are stuck stranded. the u.n. refugee agency is appealing for nearly $200000000.00 to cope with a wave of displaced people who fled violence in the region of africa groups with bases in mali have spread there are times in tunisia and kenya at least $4000.00 people were killed in the 3 countries last year. hiding under the staircase of an abandoned school is a bully family shaken from an attack they've turned classroom benches into beds
