show could do because i see it yes it's a. question i. cannot i've only said what i thought of going on with the game fronted. by mackenzie it gets us into serious it. this is d w news live from berlin confrontation in catalonia on the eve of the independence referendum rallies take place in both madrid and barcelona to oppose sunday's disputed vote but the catalonian government insists that the referendum
will go ahead as planned. also coming up u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson says washington is in direct contact with north korea the revelation comes as tillerson met with chinese leaders to discuss taming pyongyang's nuclear ambitions. i'm at a quote off and welcome to the program tensions are rising as catalonia prepares to hold its independence referendum on sunday catalan authorities say everything is in place for the vote to go ahead but spain's central government is calling the ballot illegal and has sent thousands of police officers to the region to stop it spanish residents who oppose holding the vote at all use the eve of the referendum to speak out against it. protesters in madrid demonstrating
against sunday's referendum on catalonian independence the spanish government is determined to make the vote impossible because a lot of fishes are pushing ahead with the band playing on friday night the campaign has turned out for their final rally. where they chant. it may have been a party atmosphere but the build up to this weekend has been marred with acrimony. in bus alone as port the ship's hired to accommodate additional police forces sent by the central government to stop the vote. police have been ordered to seal off polling stations and volunteer staff could be fined up to three hundred thousand euros. national assembly president says he hopes to police will have empathy for the voters. i'm aware they have a job to do that they have their orders and have to carry them out.
but we also know that they have feelings conscience in barcelona schools families and children have occupied classrooms sets to be used as police stations many of them have already spent the night here but they plan to remain until sunday when the vote starts. and we would like but we. think we had some visits from the police but it was just the church nothing. really we have you know where's. the party atmosphere for now police move to enforce the ban these photos could soon find themselves on a collision course. and for more on what's unfolding there i'm now joined by journalist from barcelona and there have been protests in bar also on our city
center can you update us on what's happening there. hello good afternoon from barcelona yesterday there were some poultice barcelona. of spain protest against the referendum on sunday and both just in favor of spain and there were no important incidents or clashes reported also today i didn't see big. protests because we had many protests to relax point that the fans protest and today they were polling stations are staying at home there is a lot of uncertainty right now and that's a lot about what's going to happen tomorrow you're mentioning uncertainty the police have been instructed to prevent this vote from happening at all so do we
know at this time what level base is actually being enforced. is there is a strong police presence in catalonia. spanish police officers have been deployed to prevent their referendum on friday police began to close some polling stations was how did the use of force citizens in favor of the referendum. polling stations to prevent closure in five days in the centers and organize some activities to guarantee that polling stations are not sealed of bad to police said that they have to live schools they are in schools before dawn and yes that's what we have and that's a situation right now. where i remember that spain's persecutor order to see
a lot of polling stations millions of ballot papers were seized websites were closed and today there was a police raid in telecommunications center of barcelona ok now we've seen demonstrations from people who are supporting the referendum but also those who oppose it can you talk to us briefly about how this has divided the region. yes les paul said that forty one percent people are in favor of. forty nine percent are against that. seventeen but figures may have change after. the actions of this funny. divided society you see the person who does are very close. to one percent in
favor of independents out four to nine percent against independents and yet. we are. living peacefully. in peace between both sides of society thank you from barcelona for your insight at least fifty people have been arrested at a neo nazi rollie in the swedish city of gotham berg around six hundred black clad members of the anti sematic nordic resistance movement marched and some clashed with counter-demonstrators a court had barred the neo nazis from passing a synagogue police had also put up posters borning marchers not to behave like german nazis at rallies in the one nine hundred thirty s. and forty's one police officer and several other people were injured. here in germany political leaders are facing plenty of wrangling before a new government can be confirmed one possible coalition is attracting
a lot of attention and looks to be the most likely way for chancellor angela merkel to form a stable government it's touted as the jamaica coalition and it gets its name from the colors traditionally associated with three of germany's party's black for the christian democrats yellow for the free democratic and green for all no surprises here the greens. black yellow and green three colors that go together well in the jamaican flag but they could soon cause trouble in german politics. down here the battle will soon continue seven parties will be in the bonus talk four of them might form the next government conflicts almost certain even before exploratory talks begin parties that were fighting each other in the campaign will now have to cooperate. the debate over an immigration act might become especially challenging the business friendly f.t.p.
and the green party wanted the conservative c.d.u. c.s.u. parties oppose it environmental protection might be another issue the green party wants a fast brown coal face out the f.t.p. does not in fact they might become the most complicated coalition talks in decades . we have a lot self work to do now not only in berlin but also between the sea as you and the c.d.u. to find common ground for exploratory talks for years on your playing itself in the one all parties involved are aware of that but most of them look like they're keeping their cool. sides my motto is strength lies and peace it's in the semi it for us who let there be some peace and quiet reflection first. isn't woman enough cause we are now moving quietly into a complicated situation. but that complicated situation seems to be the starting
point to forming a coalition because the social democrat s.p.d. has announced they will go into opposition following their election defeat. and german voters prefer that sixty three percent support the s.p.d. going into opposition only twenty nine percent would prefer that they become part of the government again. for the jamaica parties there is no other option than to start talks soon because they also have one common goal to avoid new elections at all costs. u.s. secretary of state rex tillerson has said the u.s. is in direct contact with north korea over its nuclear weapons program and is probing the country's willingness to talk to larsen made the remarks in beijing where he was meeting president using paying and other officials he also called for calm the u.s. used china as crucial to attempts to stop yang developing nuclear weapons china has
strong economic ties with north korea accounting for about ninety percent of its foreign trade earlier i spoke to stephen barr awake our correspondent in seoul south korea i began by asking him how important china's role is in developing channels of communication between the u.s. and north korea. if u.s. and north korea are in some kind of direct contact and presumably that's a diplomatic process that's going ahead without china's direct involvement and whether or not that you site sit down to talk will depend on a variety of factors particularly the preconditions that they place on any kind of talks north korea has historically resisted talks that were predicated upon its taking steps towards the nuclear as asian that being said china is of course very important to any sort of approach north korea given the amount of economic power that they have over north korea and i think some u.s. policy makers and analysts have in the past assumed that china has this sort of
magic ability to affect north korea's behavior but history shows that that isn't always the case. now as you mentioned china is obviously an important actor in this situation and they've also adopted u.n. sanctions against north korea and seem increasingly willing to cut those ties of over its nuclear weapons program but how much further can washington push beijing to exert power on north korea. to answer that it's important to distinguish between economic and political power china has a lot of economic power and christie said given that north korea's only active land borders with china and so much of its trade depends on interaction with china but that being said china north korea is still a sovereign country and when it comes to what policies they want to carry out and if they choose to pursue nuclear weapons or missiles there's not much the china can do to change that so. is it will be able to assess the extent to which the two
sides are able to cooperate and just how much the u.s. is able to get china on board with carrying out u.n. sanctions and other kind of punitive measures on north korea now look you had president trump will visit beijing in november of course currently there appears to be warmer ties between us and china but could anything be derived now from between now and that briefly if you can. the calendar is full of big events between now and then china will have its communist party congress and north korea will be celebrating the foundation of its ruling party and south korean officials just said this week that they expect more provocative actions between from north korea around mid october so the question will be if tensions do arise if the u.s. and china will seize on that urgency to cooperate more cohesively and to make a more united front or if the more tense situation leads them to break apart in some way and have some differences on the best way to move forward so we'll have to
