5:22 pm
states of martial law in the eastern provinces. so definitely the sentiment among many people that if somebody can just put a stop to the terrible master kid and the bloody attack on civilian target, then that would be a good thing. the same time a lot of skepticism from some people about whether you're going to coming in 3 and once again will bring stability or just yet more instability. now the european union is ordering or non essential stuff out of each year appear as the contract that continues several european countries of also their citizens to leave. in recent weeks, rebel forces fighting federal troops have made gains near the capital out of saba, the long war has killed thousands under space more than 2000000 people. or the united nations as increasing violence and cameron's anglophone regions as impacting the safety and education of hundreds of thousands of children. the organization says 2 out of 3 schools is now closed on the northwest and southwest regions. due

5:24 pm
classroom. so imagine trying to good quality education with 100 kids in your class, half of them traumatized by having witness violence. i think it is, it is related to these underlying political, linguistic grievances, feeling on marginalization, there's a lack of decentralization and so on. but, but what we keep saying is, these are real grievances they need to be dealt with in talks, in political talks, not by closing down to schools that may have had the wrong curriculum earlier or. busy that is wrong, run by the wrong authorities, children of the right to education, irrespective or political problems. now, the international olympic committee has held

5:26 pm
have been turned into tools for chinese propaganda. whereas the w t o has resisted it, is really a mark for the w t a. and really we should see more organizations behaving such as them resisting clear lives from the party being propagandizing efforts. we also need to see the real coordinated action between governments. china is a powerful state actor of course. and what we need to confront them is to hold, trying to accountable through the coordination of multiple countries. what this abuse against hong try is, is also very much part of a long trend. the widespread and systematic use of arbitrary and secret attention to remove from public any one thing as a counterpoint to the will of the party. it is part of a number of high profile disappearances over the years from the former interpol president mon home way or an actress on bang bang earlier this year,
