9:02 pm
protesting on saturday led by thousands of women as our report. defying what looks like a crackdown on dissent in belarus these women chanting we won't forget we won't forgive a part of what they call a peacekeeping force designed to stop peaceful protesters being intimidated thousands marched in the capital minsk. since alexander lukashenko was reelected as president earlier this month officially winning 80 percent of the vote there have been daily demonstrations several people have been killed and hundreds more injured and now the authorities have started withdrawing the accreditation of journalists working for foreign media outlets the government says the move was recommended by bellerose his counterterrorism unit opposition leaders for atlanta taken off sky in exile in if the way nia says she's worried about the government targeting the media on saturday she said quote the only way it will attempt to cling on to power is by
9:03 pm
fear and intimidation there was also a strong reaction from western embassies in minsk in a joint statement they said we condemn the disproportionate use of force and urged the bell erosional thora teams to stop the violence and the threats to use military force against the country's own citizens and to release immediately and unconditionally all those unlawfully detained intimidation and prosecution based on political grounds need to stop we call on the bell original dorothy's to respect the country's international obligations on fundamental democratic and human rights . the crackdown on journalists comes a day off the e.u. foreign ministers agreed to impose sanctions on 20 senior bella russian officials this sanctions against certain list of individuals who are guilty of human rights violations about the groups that is an important step and this will impose some sort of hassle for those people on the list but the regime considers this as the cost of doing business and this won't stop them from further intimidating bellers.
9:04 pm
the e.u. has urged russia not to intervene in belarus after president vladimir putin promised military support for on xander lucas encouraged but there's no sign those in power are ready to change their approach to the opposition. al-jazeera. well he has been at smith now he's in neighboring in the few any in the capital vilnius obviously been a deep couldn't get in given the situation there and a more difficult situation now for journalists who were covering events yes look at shank alexander lukashenko the president has long complained blaine's the foreign media the stoking the protests in men's sc so enormous challenge now to cover that story that most of the journalists out there are credit stations revoked the local better russian journalists working foreign media outlets as they continue
9:05 pm
to work without their accreditation that's potentially very dangerous for them with serious consequences if that calls and i have been reports of journalists being beaten up there are want to pour in journalists still they are some of them working without accreditation and if that called then they risk being thrown out of the country so what do you know the insert obviously contacts you have there of what has happened today about the large scale protests led by women. one of the challenges for the protesters is keeping up the mountain elections the presidential election was held on august the 9th look at this close victory more than 80 percent of the vote and the protests starts they have been at some level almost daily with the biggest ones on the weekends but people are tired we're now entering the 4th week of these protests and so the protest organizers have been
9:06 pm
worried are worried that the protests are going to lose steam well we've seen the government do is essentially allow the protests to take place yes there have been some crackdowns but on the whole the people have been allowed out onto the streets the haven't been mass crackdowns that might have prompted even more people to come out so it is a tactic by the government to hope this will fizzle out that will have to see maybe on sunday when there's supposedly another big protest how that pans out certainly the opposition say people are still coming out to protest and with several 1000 women out today calling pollution all right so more protests expected then across the weekend thank you bernard smith in building its. and now from new york is with us from the c.p. jo the committee to protect journalists i'm sure are going to say you're disappointed by the news coming out of belarus but i suspect not surprised this is a classic strongman play isn't it to silence the media. exactly there and get
9:07 pm
stereotypical who are going to shake it because we've seen him trying to crack down on independent reporting for years don't forget that he's been president of for 26 years and even before you make sure his foreign journalists have the difficulties to get a critic ation but stooping to your own yourself or critiquing each into the station in such a large number is a sign of how. much look at shane. and how big a sprint he is because he and his government basically feel you have to control the independent reporting and if the flow of information in. a guess though it might be a little different this time around because the story is already out there isn't it the media were there for the election so much was covered it would be difficult. for him to to put a lid on this now and to stop the story from getting out of. yes i don't think he's
9:08 pm
going to succeed because we have seen so many other tactics in suppressing independent reporting the orthogonality is detained generally is somewhat there were subject to your treatment in detail. the committee to protect journalists document those cases will also include it on. 7 you know net being blocked the war interrupted and there have been reports that the government behind it we have seen many other ways of 7 crackdown on the independent reporting and this is one. step to silence independent reporting in belarus a correspondent pointed out you may have heard that the lot of the people arrested have were actually or sorry not arrested who had their credit tension take away were local journalists but working for foreign media how risky would it be for them
9:09 pm
to continue operating if they wished. yes i wanted to point out that the fact that many of 1 these reporters who work for foreign media outlets are people russian nationals that more vulnerable to the government through oppression now they are steeped of the arab league status but i would like for anyone citizens think cannot be deployed to it to other countries so they remain very vulnerable and the government can exercise any ways out for patience and crackdown on it is a mash and you know detention or arrest the way the prison terms and have to fire as we've seen all those left because journalists now without the approval taishan remain very vulnerable to government crackdown goodness aside from the committee to protect journalists in new york we thank you for your time thank you. on to other

9:11 pm
almost 24 hour. period in cars got better. yet the situation is getting a bit like a. lot of people. off. and then again the only other ship in the area that might be willing to take them on board is an edgy over to watch for 'd so again it's not the u.k. majority doing a proper job and in addition to that story as many as 500 refugees and migrants a stranded on abandoned railway tracks in bosnia herzegovina they were barred from one province that forced them into another where help was refused once again shelob ellis has the full story. on a road to nowhere hundreds of migrants from bosnia a trap to my place and a changing political ties the blare are those like a football we are not human here we are just
9:12 pm
a football they say they are being kicked between police into neighboring bosnian provinces in a sauna can't own announced last week would ban migrants in tring in movement the rulings in a galaxy has been questioned migrants were pushed back to the province of republika srpska which refuse to accept them these railway tracks are the only place they find amnesty. while there are 17 you know that it is very hard life here is going to hard work and they rely on aid agencies to bring food water and medical aid to the tracks you can't go to that site you can't go. no food no water nothing. empty migrants seem to mind is increasing in bosnia people in one town sit up roadblocks this summer to stop migrants has still see increased after a regional health minister announced 8 migrants who tested positive for private 19
9:13 pm
infected were taken to a local hospital and 2 escaped during further anger from residents. it is certain we have hundreds in fact thousands of migrants in camps where migrants don't follow any norms any regulations and none of our guidance there are simply people who don't respect anything the un's refugee agency says as of last month there were $9000.00 refugees in bosnia accounting for 60 percent of refugees in the western balkans the vast majority are from pakistan and afghanistan $600.00 arriving in bosnia each week up from 50 in may. even migrant camps are full. they keep coming every day it would be ok if they were inside camps but they keep coming from everywhere coordinating their movements by phone and then they try to walk to the croatian border just 3 kilometers that way but get turned back to us. became a bottleneck for thousands of europe migrants and $27.00 tane as other migration
9:14 pm
routes closed up resulting in a $34.00 would increase of arrivals these migrants are finding themselves on the wrong side of the tracks shallow ballasts 0. 0 balkans reports now on the anger amongst locals against the refugees. citizens of b cards are gathering for the 9th time to protest and the reason is still the same like it was for the last 3 years they demand all levels of authority here in bosnia-herzegovina to do some urgent actions and to help them with this migrant crisis they want migrants and refugees to be deported from the entire bosnia and herzegovina they say that it would be the best solution for everyone. they are also stating that there's a lot of concern with people here in because because for the last 10 to 15
9:15 pm
days there's thousands of by grins without any shelter out in the street in the open or in abandoned buildings and there's been reported more and more violence and fights between migrants so they think that this is not safe environment for people who live here their families and their property they are also stating that they have support for this protest from the mayor and as well from surrounding cities and areas who are also under a lot of burden since they also have the same problem with this migrant crisis for several years. some of the more background on this for you the united nations says there are about $9000.00 refugees migrants in bosnia which means it's hosting more than half of all refugees in the western balkans most in bosnia come from afghanistan and pakistan and around $600.00 arrive each week. the numbers vary from day to day what we are seeing is about as you've indicated some are
9:16 pm
between 406 other people arriving a week for a week in the building who we receive approximately the same number of people the party if you look at the last 2 and a half years we've consistently had somewhere between i would say 50026002 max an 800000 migrants and refugees in those years a government that figure hides the fact that these are not the same evil mostly there are so the small group that is an exception but most of these are these are changing population population trends and so was he as an ordinary remains a transit country for now which is by wails of insulin markets and refugees continue to come because they know that they have the highest chance to actually make it through the border creations ravinia into the on words. here is what's coming up for you german police tried to break up a large coronavirus skeptics protest in berlin because few were wearing mounts so keeping their distance the devastating toll of the oil spill in the richest springs
9:17 pm
protesters who accuse the government of failing to act quickly enough and they support the n b a possible returns off to social justice protests but the players say there's still a lot of work to be willing to house the sport a little like to. israel now where the prime minister benjamin netanyahu is facing another evening of demonstrations demanding his resignation for weeks now thousands of israelis have been rallying outside the lead his official residence in west jerusalem unhappy with well a lot of things his handling of the economy the coronavirus and his pending corruption trial. his sorry for sit in west jerusalem for our regular saturday appointment it's become an area these protests week after week have gone on but they do seem to be growing. it is pretty extraordinary come out
9:18 pm
of the fact that so many people we've got thousands again coming out week after week in this way they are trying to do new things this time they're coordinating with 18 other cities around the world largely in north america as well as europe in no way to try to internationalize this there have been protests around the world in any case before now and there are also. that there's a bit of a split between the people who are gathered here and that thousands and others who gathered at a bridge a few kilometers away in west jerusalem again they marched towards this area to try to join up with the main protest last weekend we saw the police try to stop them and they were. cat and mouse kind of running attempts to get by the police this time it seems that the police have largely allowed them to march although trying to steer them in their preferred direction just the last couple of minutes there have
9:19 pm
been reports of protesters trying to get through police barricades and there were concerns about violence tonight both from protesters who talking about police violence and incitement last weekend and from the police who say that there were calls for police officers to be harmed by protesters on social media something that protest organizers denied so far here it's been going off pretty peaceful a bit later on leaving with these clashes if they happen tend to do so pretty hard for prime minister netanyahu to ignore these protests harry but does he acknowledge them does he. you know talk about the matter at any point. well i mean that's what this one thing that the opponents adventure in netanyahu have complained about the fact that he hasn't publicly at least tried to internalize the message from these protests actually indeed he's done the opposite really vilifying the protesters as atticus and leftists and of course some of them
9:20 pm
are from the and the majority probably from the israeli political left but as well as that there have been protesters representing small businesses contract workers people who've been hit hardest by the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic and of course there are longstanding protests the benjamin netanyahu demanding that he leave office because of the 3 cases of corruption that he's currently on trial for the question for these protests really is how to leverage this how to translate this pressure externally into something effective that gets their demands met so far he has put off the prospect of elections at least until next march and he still has very strong support with his in with within his own right. you could ruling party out the coalition i mean coalition faction of the coalition government so trying to get this message through to the prime minister to get some kind of
9:21 pm
political movement to oust him from office is greeted. another noisy night in west jerusalem that's reporting. to the maritime territorial dispute between turkey and greece and in the latest escalation the turkish government says it's stopped 6 greek fighter jets from entering sensitive space media reports from greece though say those planes were actually harris by turkish fighters as they returned to base on the on the discrete it happened over a part of the mediterranean which both claim as their own area potentially rich in energy reserves this month turkey started with its ship there exploring that area for oil and gas but the european union which includes greece is calling for a diplomatic solution but it hasn't ruled out the possibility of sanctions on 2 shortly we'll hear from john psaropoulos near athens he'll tell us how greece is accused of making more and more military incursions but 1st stephanie decker in istanbul on how turkey is viewing greece's announcement about
9:22 pm
a maritime border change. we have heard from the vice president he said that greece is moved greece has announced that it's going to extend its maritime borders this is on its towards italy however but by 6 miles but certainly here it's being taken as something that it could then also do when it comes to turkey and saying that that certainly you know if that isn't a provocation to war what else is this is the kind of language that you're seeing coming out of the highest levels here also the announcement that turkey will continue to carry out military drills northwest of cyprus for the next 2 weeks or so so i think certainly there's no indication that the situation is calming down anytime soon it is so complicated you have a situation where you have 2 countries backed by different regional and international european powers it's all about the exploration of gas it's all about where lines stop in the sea but you've got an area that is so populated by islands for example the greek island of kos there loaded saw is only around 10 minutes by
9:23 pm
ferry from the turkish coast so it just shows you how complicated the situation is and even longstanding disputes with cyprus are coming into this and inflaming it in terms of who gets access to what gas so certainly turkey yes particularly europe being accused of being provocative but the message here from from ankara is that they're doing what's right in that they're being unfairly treated. the escalation of these incursions by turkish forces has been very precipitous in the last 2 years they've risen from dozens before 2009 to hundreds since then and well into the thousands and this year we're set for repeat performance greece nonetheless insists that it is going to play this dispute by the book which means it is simply standing by international law and international maritime law the u.n. role of the sea and it is calling on turkey to come to
9:24 pm
a dialogue on the basis of those laws greeks are standing by this by the book approach because they're winning by this week they've ratified maritime agreements based on u.n. law with egypt and italy they've managed to get the european union behind lining up sanctions that could be used against turkey next month and they are going to stick to that strategy. protesters have turned out in their thousands in berlin for a march against coronavirus restrictions that was despite a police order for the demonstration to be shut down because social distancing rules are being violated don't it came as the story from berlin. for weeks the daily number of new coronavirus infections in germany has been rising yet for these people in berlin what matters most is their right not to observe any restrictions not to wear masks not to follow social distancing and to show their anger at the
9:25 pm
politicians who have imposed them because of the killing is illegal eilis is illegal the whole government is illegal everything is illegal and corona is just a medium to heavy flu a pandemic that is being used to enslave us humans. that view is not shared by the police who tried and failed twice on friday to persuade the courts to ban the demonstration saying the protesters posed a serious risk mentioning d.m. of and of them was going on and that these are people that we can assume as coronavirus skeptics have taken no precautions in recent months in a time when infection numbers are increasing we don't believe these gatherings to be responsible. the protesters are made up of many different groups some from the political fallout of society some from the far right what unites them is a sense of injustice and rights being lost demonstrations like these pose this country's politicians a serious ethical dilemma forcing them to balance on the one hand the rights of
9:26 pm
individuals to protest against government measures with which they disagree and on the other hand the rights of the wider community to be protected as far as possible from the risk of coronavirus infection it's a risk ministers say is growing. limit is it's just some fruits of war the problem is the numbers are too high too early given that winter is coming and we don't currently know what effect it will have and how the flu and other illnesses will affect it the numbers are too high at this early stage. that's why the all thora t's have tried so hard to prevent scenes like these and why they are so fearful of what effect so many people might have when they're in such close proximity to each other without masks dominic kane al-jazeera berlin. and there were similar protests in zurich switzerland where people demanded an end to all coronavirus related restrictions that includes the demand for no more
