should have been made long ago all these things we were told the complete impossible something may become also connected to the wake up call the can't be ignored and i just say you know. you're watching all deservedly so wrong a reminder of our top news stories the us president donald trump has finally signed a coronavirus relief bill after refusing to do so for a week the delay meant some unemployment benefits lapsed piling the pressure a millions of americans also in jordan has more from washington d.c. it really is a disgrace on tuesday u.s. president donald trump released a video calling the $900000000000.00 covert relief bill insufficient suggesting who wouldn't sign it on sunday with no reporters or cameras covering the event trawled
signed the bill for an estimated $14000000.00 people who lost their jobs during the pandemic timing was off their unemployment benefits ran out just before christmas and they'll have to wait until after january 1st before the government can help that. the bill will pay for other things keeping the federal government open through september 30th the just abuse in of culbut $19.00 vaccines housing assistance and the fiction moratorium financial aid for small businesses and a one time check of $600.00 to most americans i mean $600.00 which is not a lot of money muslims say is far from adequate to meet their needs but it's something if we had not signed the bill they wanted to know marty. trump had said he wanted the checks boost it to $2000.00 for american adult something opposition
democrats welcomed and something his fellow republicans rejected you don't get everything you want even if you're the president of the united states we have 2 legislative bodies and democrats control one republican see other look if they were just the freestanding government funding bill i would almost certainly be voting against that but i think that covert relief measures are really really important without hearing from from himself it's not clear why after now well he didn't sign the bill that's the most important thing and he was under enormous pressure to republicans want him that it would be very destructive of his legacy and also the republican majority in the senate if he did not sign the bill donald trump released a statement saying that not only did he want congress to cut some of the spending from the relief bill but he also wants them to pass a separate piece of legislation this week that would give every american adult $2000.00 to help deal with pandemic related expenses that the big question is
whether or not the president's fellow republicans say they're going to go along with this extra spending otherwise it's hard to see how the president will get what he says he wants rosalyn jordan al-jazeera washington india's government is carrying out an early test of its crony virus vaccination program it's doing a 2 day drive run of the vaccine campaign across 4 states officials are hoping to run checks on the country's transport arrangements and cold storage facilities india hopes to provide 300000000 vaccine doses in the 1st phase of its immunization campaign iran is to be in human trials of a locally produced creative artist exene tehran a struggle to get its hands on the vaccines because of sanctions on its banking sector. a chinese citizen journalist has been jailed for 4 years for her live stream reporting of the early days of the krona virus pandemic chang's than is

no way. like. morning prayers but one of the most influential monasteries can call me and. this is a country where the majority are devoted buddhists. for centuries the religion has been at the heart of the nation's very identity. while the pillars of buddhist teachings are loved compassion and peace is a very different variation to the philosophy being told at the mob out tom on the street in insane township. these monks are connected with one of the world's worst humanitarian crisis. the systematic persecution and genocide overhang of muslims in
iraq and states. our unprecedented access to them about tom honesty and cedars offers a glimpse into how their ultra nationalist agenda is becoming the blueprint for the political structure of the country. is the joining the forces between monks and generals threatening mars young and fragile democracy. 2 but in the summer the film is when. we get to the. listening saga to be able to move thought the olds who got the wrong thing this week who thought the only thing the elfin the other. 2 2 2 3 doubles in this whole new job is the really somebody thing. about what the coffee
the scope of it. because the ideas of the yes we love the music. oh. they want you. roy and yes it is the pick me of the fake name. there is no in our history. roy and yes is really have been going to we don't like any of the mice in. my house my rules everybody has to and does them this. situation.
the alliance. the alliance the line. to get our accounts date. 2 the persecution of ranger muslims in myanmar can be traced back decades to the military takeover in 1960 to. many minorities suffered at the hands of the new dictatorship. the military ruled with an iron fist any form of dissent brutally stomped out. box monks believed to be the conscience of the governments and of the large majority of the people pressured leaders to adhere to buddhist principles that. emboldened by widespread public support the monks led the saffron revolution against the military in 2007 all united for democracy.
i'm not obama no president they are living off the list noble. goals are. a little harder all of you go to yahoo dot your own decent much as new a lot of. these emotional affairs are viewed all. these noble model my all muddled. in your head by a mere. form of the ledger that started this of this year me. first year i don't mind that i'm from a. new will be my. child
on the wall but up on the toilet now almost i'm about a. 100 old duffer of just what the rhythm of another. planet did it not only made it. into a. panacea. this year as i had thought but all i'm an associate need now by myself when we are fabio no more to die yet i. just well i. must go up. the margin old song our home guard it might have gone
a. 100 on the network in order to roll on my feet it all or your only will be. thought toddy and i may thinking about more you know yes i gather. that. gum piro was released in 2012 together with other political prisoners including myanmar's current leader aung san suu kyi. it marked the beginning of its transition to democracy. but as religious tensions between buddhists and muslims minorities started to surface the unity of the saffron revolution shattered. i mean that all over in 2012 thousands of monks once again took to the streets this time they were shouting their support for them in the tree and their call to export the injured. you gumby it up
openly oppose this movement it's still determined that democracy was the only way forward for me and mark. repeatedly imprisoned and ostracized for his views he finally fled to thailand in 2060. many in the myanmar believe the military still an important part of the governing structure intentionally fuel divisions amongst buddhist groups they quickly aligned with the most nationalistic buddhist leaders in hansing the army's popularity and influence . you know if you own. one them out of all the phone i'm not able to got in we told. you 3 about obama you know on the whole that got it but it's the gun on the little foot in the hollow thing of it.
oh yes we didn't know yet in. a money domino what a minute i didn't know what our money. will be on mon d.o.d. . the hostility towards minorities the mob attack an ultra nationalist monks organization. the name translates to the protection of race and religion. its founder and leader is a highly respected monk russian. so long a man or even. the neediness another see the. son not only the love one is a. dummy variable. the
dumb would enjoy the other one you had to live where you do not live there grandma . he doesn't know why you that are not worn down i mean our. lives. may chill out at home now. let's see oh bother the number there we all. know is it it's a lot or. no other than i thought i was almost to the. log i live. and i live or die thing they also have it i was your. yes and if you didn't know to do that all that. was given to me. i.
mean. there's a did you. take a name that huge in the deal is if she would do a day. i go. to good will say but. in this moment in the book we keep to just sit in a book. and then this us on the movie see it i mean it newbuild one novel and when bill. de money it or. gets with it so he did on d.n.a. now you know in d.n.a. it delete all of that and let the able to you gita.
root of this extremism. especially the anti muslim i think it has a very long roots. muslims have been in amman for centuries. things became more problematic with large scale immigration from the subcontinent because we see. in the past was in israel in your mother they were in small numbers but under colonialism in the british empire they came to burma in large numbers of course that created problems. one of the remarkable things about the. was that. the control by the authorities was very
strict and very strong so we had very little religious disturbances of course it was sort of pushed underground. but with the return of democracy and. a greater openness and of course at the same time manipulation it came out reemerge on a much bigger scale. in politics there are 2 emotions which are very strong one is greed and the others fear. because we are under the military dictatorship 51 years. and then we have a civil war that's been raging between the central military and the ethnic on organizations. so it's like.
an ending. continuous fear. even educated people in your mouth say that all you see the images they breed like cockroaches or insects and very soon your highest it will be full of was going religious and it was a buddhist will be swallowed so it's like we are defending our country our society and our religion so it's very important it's a very strong message but the really wrong and it's quite frightening. and that is the real danger of these extremist monks.
discover man don't laugh me. i'm no happy. government must be more care i was minimum people than. the number because we have family they are different to strangers ok. the. the. growing fear of fake news and. pushing communities never attack and never fight in different fee for different countries you can see the. world history. you can see wars history.
this is a prank this is a fake fake this is a fake. you know it in the everybody says are humor rise humor right where is a human judy where is citizen judy. i want to ask them where is what is human judy. then they have us then that they never tell about them. they all will out they all lout you mariah human right no human right is not that fast we have to understand human judy and citizen to d.
if you are human beings. we are not animal. all of this. can be brought on free and. he got us all really bad we can all have that. there hang him before we believe in islam are discriminated and treated like an animal by the. state was home to over a 1000000 raija muslims and over 2000000 buddhists before the conflict started in 2012. since then being modest government has banned all media and n.g.o.s from accessing the conflict area. where most ranger muslims now live in
internally displaced camps. desperate and afraid. i want to hide my sis and my identity but the government. to speak out. when you are bad they come and. and the prosecutor. suddenly there was a month and several hand here. we are rabbi in record time and grow in tell me. all the time especially. after several days there are people in mosques and the police come in said the hottest on fire in the army. i was in my house and. i decided myself i have to die because my belly
was wrong and. the ranger insists that their community had nothing to do with this attack. many of me and mars activists and journalists. believed that the rape and murder of the buddhist woman never happened. that it was a story made up to start the conflict and. hundreds of thousands were forced into i.d.p. camps or to flee the country most of them to refugee camps in neighboring bangladesh. some of them that's going to fight the police all the sportswear had by them listening. at the time we're. at the. honduras south thousands of. people.
following the attacks myanmar's armed forces led so-called clearance operations in iraq and state. by 2018 thousands of ranger muslims were killed and more than 700000 had fled to bangladesh. the situation for survivors is desperate. now i am 22 years from my feet here the current. horrible if i want to. but i came. because i don't have i don't think that. i want to see. peace having equal rights. i want this is slightly.
what has happened in iraq hein what has happened to the roof. has been. really been dropped. the weight of a government and the ministry of the security forces handle things only made things worse. so that's one of the biggest stains upon the new government and upon the country as a whole. and i really believe that things where either handled very badly all there are. i think. unscrupulous you know elements and if you're leaving the situation from behind. countries who are transiting you know from an authoritarian system to a book open democratic system face a lot of problems the politicians have to be prepared for that but if i was not.
them all politics is dominated by just 2 parties one is the military spotty the u.s.d. and one is the national league for democracy. if. we thought that things would change just by having a democratic government you know and the party of sense e.g. going to get power so again you are also disappointed in that regard. during her decades of struggle to house arrest and she was a nationally known democracy i kong and a harrowing recipient of many prizes she was repeating the monks rob human rights with every breath almost no democracy human rights no rule of law no she says she doesn't even mention human rights anymore. in the
years following the suffering revolution in marcella brayton it's 1st democratic government. but with the military still in power many of the dreams to have true democracy evaporate. and me and mars leaders stand accused of genocide. i joined al jazeera as part of the. team in 2006 protesters have called for a 1000000 man march in the time i've covered wars revolutions elections i'm going to treat course from the favelas of caracas to the battlefields around also our job is to get to the truth and the power people through knowledge would escape city has become a major global issue the demand is going straight up and the supply is going straight down turning an essential natural resource into

and i do that are a form of the name even some worry. that. if you move. the not old. enough. to go to movies you will see what we see you don't see imus you know i do will be thinking. through all the load o. on dude you are not just given the how to do just i don't want to do form of old let me go about my get there. and then the body to somebody. why do you feel for these going. on in it. and then when you got it. all of them that will probably did them a bit more what you will. do will be few women will know my level how much as an it will be i was just with them i just need. to bore you with the burning of.
your coverage. in the broad picture. like in a separate division amongst an stage massive protests and bring the population on to this site which the government in power really feared and the bitter gov. really clamp down on it so if them were treated well. very good to. see. you can also use monks for your own purpose you know. for very negative. and sent objectives back to democracy the monks are a force that can be used. the n.l.e. government doesn't view of the very favor of the western sector so the monks
and the military they entered into this kind of unholy alliance. claims. there is no denying the reverence for them about our leader during his visit to current states. his devoted followers worship the ultranationalist monks along the way. land. a crowd of fervent followers is also waiting to receive his speech. class. i.
my father's power. so everything is privilege and everything is just define you dissolve this privilege because you are british just because you do something good in your purse life. of course we have clashes even inside the family they don't agree they asked me to stop saying that words against the military because they are that all people if i cause or if i'm playing to the old people i would be in help in the future. so when i exposed to the different wars when i exported different stories so they gave me a new insights that i need to really stand on using my model as the majority ethnicity a majority religions to define and those were all press. so regarding the range of prices i feel a huge. burden because that's not just the room and rakhine
crisis is the mission of crisis it's not just a nation a crisis a global crisis right now. but why that to happen the because the fear. that the politicians know that if you make people fear for something like the a religion has become sensitive it get easier to create a conflict so it's become like us and politic or we are playing games using that religion and nationality and i didn't. hear. the minister of religion he is actually from military that means he got to have some kind of similar ideologue to dislike mob out there are bad ts recruited by and l.t. you know but. yes so that makes the structure that he is walking and as a ministry all religion only for.
this town and current state in the south east of me and maher is restricted to foreigners and muslims forbidden. i would never. see a game. so money which a family go. to live at home i would know by that offer the not all only. 2 are the they've got the senate. from or not it's a mile. deep down in the misery and no one a danger to the one o. them and i want to go one night and it. doesn't go in there. and they are in there with all the lot it was either
a lot of. calling only on their weird name i would design missile did it by the tone i do know i doubt it will. so i didn't because only would it. be either when they had this us on the this or that when you're dead they're. dead beat up. today monks from across the country along with thousands of devoted nice have come to pay their last respects at the funeral of $1.00 of the region's most influential religious leaders political figures and other public personalities attend the event wear them about oz leader is given a position of prestige and authority. on this trip scores of heavily armed soldiers accompany him. deep down in him is a new one and then you're doing your. job one that has it. so it will table
1. 1000000 above your. teenager did a minute. and he got. all those a d.n.a. and the tinning going on in then that end of it is in. the me i'm our minister of religion is at great pains to justify his government's policies regarding the range of prices to the leader explaining that any concessions were enacted reluctantly. got. off by me. and my.
interfaith marriage laws and think a lot of support. huge never and i think this was a way of trying to test the waters. this happens in democracies now. so in the past it was the power of the gun and now it is the power of the vote and the legislature is really dominated by the u.s. to be party a. pass those laws. and so all of us are. in st. you know 2015 elections. really tried to play a political role. and to explain that we are to he has visited sri lanka many times and i think it is a game and his role model of the monks not see that the fact that i got a. and
according to the new constitution. political party composed of what is monks is committed and then they also enter the election and got elected. monks in sri lanka because of the general emergency. the buddhist monks became very active in politics the same thing is repeated in your mind the political role the nationalist role and the colonial role you know. present. but i would say sri lanka was peds in politics so militant monsters excuse monks in yemen now look at sri lanka as a kind of a role model. so that the new power doesn't exist anymore you know the militia are gone so they have to find something. and they say that the same
thing for them in the military they need any means to justify their big budgets you know and their existence. there is the love evidence that made public that the military was supporting them about the them and the law is flush with cash but lots of money. who were to loot is also because adding $0.05 for the budgets they say that you have to prepare yourself for the next elections. so introduce your team they were actually backing this set of candidates for election i think they will do the same thing in 2020 but on the biggest cayle. that any. lot any. do the next time. i am.
we fall river right on the 7th because of software revolution against a military system everybody won the freedom everybody round my right everybody won democracy. one day the military army come and shoot a lot of people on the street i visit scary we go i never saw we kill each other from me. i v so sight and i v so angry in same time. after that what can we do we have no power here nor up on are about the news that uses can speak out to use power to fight back we can screaming for the human right. person is why. one should do a long job. less is. mostly who hate islam the bit is that. no other told me the 1st 6 months this is not religion this is
a politic. religion. i don't understand the policy. i only understand bob humanity i cannot change the war i cannot change even my country i got change to think my stuff around me as this. revolution cannot exist without a left to lose in with the lead this minute violent with us all are over losing you cannot see changing because of or reason is the change the must work you invest time. out of it a little bit of the money why didn't they just you know need it or be idealists you
know. whom no by a 1000000 no job and now you know you're going to. hit the. sand out of anonymity double. the money on a. cell of government owned you run. the protection of buddhism and the current government inspired devotion among many of me and most people. but there are voices challenging the status quo there is an emerging dissenting youth movement calling for another revolution. for authorities it presents a new challenge. for others who say they want to preserve myanmar's fledgling democracy it offers a void. it's of. dad
was always dear to us you know who brought. us a new concept and who called friends with conservative people all these. 20 of us minimize to where the projects like the voice of the unions. we bring people together from different communities different religious backgrounds from music. so you know it is clearly that. they don't know want to see any more conflicts they want to be together they want to be peaceful they want to be developed you know they want to catch up with the war and they want to do you know they want to celebrate this freedom. and so our job is to you know let them be aware of how they can
and i'm not. the. normal flow that accompanied the. dog to. the mall to see some of the difficulties. they don't know about it don't you know and i know the whole you know unknown a lot of. you have to state your position on family at a time like this when the country is divided on this issues when she was on a very unglamorous very strong vocal you must add your voice against its soul by keeping silence i think you also. part of the picture that means you have also i
would say. you know one day we all were dying for sure mom or hung doesn't win the. soul. everyone show of those time question months. all money pain. to just try our home i think. if we could do their back no wrong. the whole wrong has done. our lives so we we not complain about doctrine and. we want to create our own likes to visit our rubber newsman.
