8:02 pm
conflict lasting more than 30 years. families of those killed gathered for a memorial service and a walk of remembrance through the city where the killings happened. there's a long road ahead and many more his to play, but let's not allow any of that to hold us back from doing what in our hearts we knew needs to be done clueless with the same spirit that sustained the bloody sunday families across 50 years. we will little by little succeed in lifting our city to greater heights of hope and that my friends will be testament to the struggles of those who have gone before and a legacy for those who will come after looking back at the events of 50 years ago, today his under chappelle, your photograph has taken back its been 50 years since kate lost her brothers from his guitar to music on the radio startup. at the age of 19,
8:03 pm
william was killed by the british army. his death became part of the cover up by the british government. that absolute left should never have happened. and, and even at that, it should have been dealt with a long, long time ago. at shouldn't have been covered up. well, always mustn't always muslim. the on january 30th, 1972 british paratroopers had been fire no, no civil rights demonstrators. they were protesting against treatment without trial and discrimination against catholics. the minority community who wanted northern ireland out of the u. k. and for unity with the rest of ireland, dennis, bradley witnessed it all unfold. i remember standing here i do in a young group of people's coming was a body carrying a body and running towards that. and seeing that a young, a young man was very badly injured. the victims,
8:04 pm
7 of them, teenagers, were branded terrace. the soldiers cleared in a british judicial inquiry, viewed by historians as a farce. it took nearly 4 decades to expose the army coverage. and for the families to receive an apology from the u. k. prime minister, david cameron in 2010 the violence that day lets was surgeon recruits to the provisional irony which fought in armed campaign against british troops and police trying to force the u. k. to abandon its control of northern ireland, the conflict known as the troubles continued for more than 30 years of sectarian violence. also involving pro british loyalists paramilitary organizations. more than 3500 people died and thousands were injured. and estimated $10000.00 bombings were carried out. oh, but none of the 18 former paratroopers who carried out the bloody sunday killings as to trial. the family say they will never give up in the fight for justice and
8:05 pm
accountability with the people. he took up the model number of the people he expose the british army on the british government for what they really did on blood is on the, not their original. and it's very important that we will keep us going when our hilde, the next generation of grandchildren will, will keep this on. however, we'll keep the story alight. 50 years on the families are still waiting for answers and a day in court and chappelle al jazeera. but we held her pull dorothy there in that report whose father was one of the protest is killed by british soldiers that he at . we spoke to tony his brother and he began by explaining how you k, paratroopers targeted civil rights, marches that day. my life, those stopped in many ways. i was rather father. i still must my father. i wish i had a father through all my upbringing recently itself was a watershed in the, in the psyche,
8:06 pm
a few months of the people of the city of the old. and that's for many people after billy sunday and after the ladies that were told to show the debt to say that people never gave it, don't matter. then became members of the irish public army and the days, weeks and years after sunday. and like what, how was it society, we meet the terrible, what happened? because the conflict which was only and just station sort of periods even up to up to the end of may to $71.00, became worse exacerbated. and i would say that hundreds of thousands of people lost their life because of the sunday. i think they
8:07 pm
is a matter of unfinished business. no soldier has been convicted of a court of law the master of so they are the individual killings that took place that day. so justice, and many respects remains to be don't legal just as a criminal justice, a certainly something which hadn't happened. and in respect of my father's f or the death of the, our man. it's clear at this stage of the story of somebody and over no 1998, the u. k. government ordered an inquiry. it took 12 years to complete. the results were published in the saddle report. it concluded that quotes what happened on bloody sunday. strengthened the provisional, i re increased nationalist resentment and hostility towards the army and exacerbated the violent conflict of the years that followed. bloody sunday was
8:08 pm
a tragedy for the bereaved and the wounded and a catastrophe for the people of northern island. early i spoke to jeremy corbin, formerly a u. k. labor party leader. he has been active in the political affairs relating to the conflict in northern ireland for many years. i asked him 1st, if a previous labor governments are also culpable in was perceived of the denial of justice for the victims, families. every british government has had some culpability in the lack of convictions. the labor government of 1997 did introduce a or did ensure that was an a 2nd sci fi. the 1st sci fi happened under john nature and did under the guidance of my modem. tony blair was prime minister the time didn't bring about the peace process did bring about the belfast agreement. but the bell has to agreement, vital and import. does it spain, to maintain a relative peace in northern ireland since 1998 has not insured. there are prosecutions and that is the fundamental question and, and so i,
8:09 pm
you hold no parties on nature of this over party politics. what i want to say is justice. that means a, an ability for those that have victims to bring about a prosecution or the british government to tell us exactly who gave the orders to fire and why the army spokes person immediately after that tried to address the whole thing up as though those that died was somehow culpable in their own death, but this is not respectfully, so just to interrupt you. this is not about putting the justice outside the reach of the people who are directly affected by the events of bloody sunday. is it because if we cast our memories back to the atmosphere in northern island, across the u. k. in the run up to the good friday agreement, arguably, can i suggest you the atmosphere politically was to fee broil, to have a situation where tony blair was pushing for the good friday agreement. proximity
8:10 pm
talks at a time when, if it had been, if somebody had gone public with a british prime minister is in effect talking to the i r re 18 months or 2 years before that that would have been political suicide. he was absolutely of the witcher, the richard tribunal, and remember that the proximity talks and the 2nd cease fire in the belfast of and did all happen in 199798. and we've had a very long time now of the operation of the good friday agreement that has been plenty of time in which they could and should have been far more activity on that to bring about some form of justice. some form of legal process because several reported some while ago as well. and so i think that the people of dairy deserve to know the truth on this. and of course the anger and dairy this weekend is about the sadness of those families that lost them. but it's also the sense of
8:11 pm
anger that so welcome. as the statement was made by david cameron some years ago. now, i didn't really answer the question about who was actually culpable. no one has been charged. no one has been prosecuted. yet a enquiry very, very detailed enquiry over 12 years, maybe absolutely clear that they were killed by the army on the streets of that city. jeremy colbin talking to us earlier, voting on the way in a snap election in portugal with no party expected to in. and outright majority, the ballot was called by the socialist government after its coalition partners switch sides and blocked a spending bill. portugal tourism dependent economy has been badly hit by the global pandemic. the next prime minister will be responsible for managing a $50000000000.00 e. you recovery package, adam reiney jones's life from lisbon adam was the turn out like so far.
8:12 pm
well actually the latest numbers coming from the government from the election board shows that people are motivated or animated to come out in 2019 the last general election in the mid afternoon, around 4 pm local about 38 percent of voters who could cast ballots had voted and this year were already 46 percent, but that time only a point difference, but it does show there's more interest and we haven't even seen this special window open up yet between 6 and 7 pm local and which people who are isolating kids. they are covered positive or close contact with someone is covered positive to come to the polls so, so far as science pointing to higher than normal turn out. and that's probably because peter, the fact is people are motivated for change. they've seen how much damage has been wrought economically by the pandemic. they see how the political parties haven't been able to even agree on the budget last year that triggered this election. so
8:13 pm
they really want leaders to come together form a consensus and get moving. so they can improve the economy here, so focused on tours and but many other fields because portugal it's really lagging behind. many fell you countries and they're tired of it here. frankly, all the new politicians to vote for the latin. because in, in a, in a country where it's, you know, proportional representation going into a coalition government. usually what happens is, it's, it's a revolving door of m. p. 's going out on the hustings and then going back into government. exactly what we're seeing. one political analyst told us, peter, is perhaps the most momentous, most disruptive election in portugal since the return of democracy in 1974, after a dictatorship. and frankly, this analysts told us that's because mainly one party shake stands for enough. that means enough in portuguese, this hard right wing party has started to gain and popularity only had one seed
8:14 pm
after 2019. and it's on target to perhaps went up to a dozen feats. and that's because people here, like many countries in the european union, in other parts the world, people are looking to these right wing populace parties as a way to express their frustration with the status quo. and that's what really surprised and took the attention of a few political and sweep in speaking to. so this is going to be a momentous election because we're going to see the kind of the chessboard and parliament change. you may have the hard right wing party not just have a few seats, but be the 3rd place party in these elections. and that wouldn't only make this the most disruptive election. it would be a huge surprise. the one who's been watching portuguese politics because many people who say will never have a right wing party getting a lot of seats because we have this dictatorship and we've learned. but many people say, well, most people who lipsy that dictatorship are frankly, either not alive or don't or aren't voting in the younger generation who are set up
8:15 pm
with the response to pandemic, or sometimes gravitating to this, to this populace movement. adam, thank you very much. adam rainy the talking to his life from the portuguese capital list, but still to come here on this program. a church losing its slow, quite young people in poland, turning away from catholicism. and the echo was delegation holds talks with the keen, offensive to leaders after spending the country on its right. ah hello there. there's more unsettled weather, looming across levant and middle east. this week from a weather system that's pulling east of the mediterranean, bring some heavy snow to the likes of turkey. that'll edge down into syria and work its way across iraq and onwards to iran. we've also got more wet and windy weather
8:16 pm

8:21 pm
many of whom were children. when the conflict started, many young people have left for russia or elsewhere in search of jobs. night clubs like this one only open at weekends and have to close when the curfew starts at 10 p. m. engine as we are separated from the rest of the world. for example, we cannot use international payment systems and it's difficult to get in and out. my travel to, to buy in europe, but those i can't afford to go out. they just stuck. ne, here really no matter what happens he, a young people are trying to find joy in life. we try our best to live like people, day in the rest of the world. russia has always denied supporting the separatists militarily, saying the conflict as an internal matter for the ukrainian government and their opponents to solve. but russia's influence here seems stronger than ever. something people say the ukrainian government, whom at international backers always fail to understand charles stratford al

8:27 pm
with child thanks. abuse by priests. john hall reports from also. the catholic church has been at the center of polish life for centuries. more recently, a major influence in the anti communist solidarity movement, and of course, it gave the world a pope. it is a church now in a state of moral crisis and declined that some believe could be terminal. was until 10 chris is the bishops don't seem to realize how deep this crisis is, the process there to attach to their luxuries and palaces. the decline is very steep. i think even a vertical on you as a 12 year old old boy in the 1980s young shoemake, who was sexually abused by his parish priest. it went on for 5 years, vivid and disturbing testimony presented to his area, bishop in 1993 was at 1st ignored and then he says covered up in pre trial hearings ahead of a civil case being her next month. the church question deanna his own sexuality and

8:29 pm
the official censure of a dozen polish bishops in what the church describes as a process of purification, but that is done nothing to prevent or collapse in the numbers who regularly attend mass, especially among the young in a country that officially classifies 90 percent of its population as catholic among young people with more liberal attitudes to things like abortion divorce and l g b t rights, less than 10 percent have a positive view of the church. i think it's impossible to church for terry to have any future if they continue to say things like that. they're saying now. and because like times are changing before, are trainings nowadays charged doesn't live up to the times. we are living now and just stace backwards to people like cash at the church is an institution with
