6:06 pm
minister and leave parliament as opponents of a no deal to take control of proceedings are brigadiers outside parliament and growing increasingly frustrated. that pro europeans are out in force and they are a choice. for the moment it looks like the prime minister needs to bow to their will but in a sea of blue e.u. flags outside parliament red prolife signs show that breaks it is 2 are fighting for that. susan nicholson is a retired teacher from yorkshire she has never protested before in her life but now she fears that britain might not leave the e.u. after all but where the silent majority we don't demonstrate we've heard to me didn't expect people to ignore it so that's been a bit of a surprise for us but one upping for a general election because then we convert again and we can get rid of the remain
6:07 pm
m.p.'s who have blocked our leaving and we can have a proper government that gets us out of the. first susan and other great city is leaving the e.u. is more important than anything else they regard brussels as undemocratic and anything short of leaving on the 31st of october as a betrayal of democracy. opinion polls are showing that most people who voted leave in the referendum still want this to be seen through almost at any cost and even with our agreement with the e.u. short term consequences like food shortages rising inflation even job losses don't seem to scare them. but pro e.u. m.p.'s like they're all hobhouse i determined not to let it come to this it's have priority to prevent leaving without a deal and then it should all go back to the people for another referendum people said for a long time of course we're going to have a deal of course is the easiest thing in history everything has turned out entirely
6:08 pm
different from what was promised in 2016 so more than 3 years on definite democracy has to be practiced and the people have to be asked again. day after day susan nicholson comes to parliament to tell a piece that she and her fellow city has have not changed their minds but i think it would be sensible and mature to agree a mutually beneficial trade deal with the unfortunately that isn't going to happen at the moment what they're doing is they're using no deal as a means of continually delaying our departure so that they can then say oh well there's no mandate for. remain as and brett city is both claiming to be the true defenders of democracy and as each side becomes ever more entrenched there is no compromise in sight. top story now which concerns the devastation being wrought across the bahamas. we can join that kimberley

6:10 pm
after suggesting city island by a plane by a post whatever it is i think that the government is taxing these private organizations to bring really less unless it's one of their charities and i think there can charities you know charities and organizations the government will then filter who want to get certain things and you know living in my entire life is not always the king sign that everybody will have on get help. i'm so what is the problem with with all these freelancers rescue in charge of all efforts to talk about way. there has been the most help on the island saying more citizens out there doing rescues than and the u.s. coast guard then the government itself interviews you know all across the world where citizens are where the one who hopped on the jet skis to bring in the sick of this all the rescue boats on tuesday see that there were citizens too often in boats to go and rescue their loved ones anything saying you have seen

though the 2 men have been sentenced to 12 and 13 years the court labeled them both dangerous offenders meaning they can be held indefinitely past their sentences. and as you can imagine cultural life in yemen has nearly come to a standstill since the start of the civil war 5 years ago in a place where so many struggle for basics like food housing and health care culture probably doesn't seem all that important however the w.'s afenifere shot at people in the country seeking a semblance of normality through the arts they say culture could lead to less conflict. strolling through crate the story part of aden is not easy for people here most are struggling to survive and young people are fed up with the limited opportunities they have due to the lack of security. they have not an act of. yet so i'm so i'm. living in little and eating some books
6:19 pm
and movie and watching shouldn't be the only museum in town was partially destroyed in the civil war. cultural life in public has already been quite limited in the early nineties when it's time to fundamentalism started looking around if there were war in 2015 things the clicking through. this place right here is just one example. this is the all the cinema in yemen but not much is left of its former glory. why do you think about a. report got a 150 volts of power. and this screen played color and black and white movies. it was beautiful and this perfect. guy said i'd. do i used to be responsible for even theaters he still has a key to show me around for him thinking about life before the war he's paying for
6:20 pm
it quite a nice good part of it. people came with their wives others with their families and you could find a culture. and respect. people were dressed in their best clothes. it is not just because of lack of food that yemenis are dying people saw wither away without access to contra he says i don't let him get done washed out of my. pain and i feel we are the guy you know what i'm only the cinema. but we're dying because cinematograph from a culture of art. invaded from room to thinner and walk out if the cinema still existed i would not. have it. my kind of it would not. but these young people want to revive culture alive in yemen they are rehearsing
6:21 pm
a play to be performed in public for the 1st time in more than 4 years in aden with basics like electricity hard to come by the theater is a way to vent. turn the power on from the other line. is the oh i call beats make my life miserable what nonsense talk just. there are mit believes that art is necessary to channel people's emotions about the difficulties in their lives but is it the right time to talk about art. for sport but that's not true because if everyone stopped doing what they have to do we all sunk in the same situation real life express through art for artists in yemen it's a way to promote dialogue and ultimately peace in their country. so that report was produced by the to be correspondent for the future who joins me now welcome from me
6:22 pm
thank you when we talk about yemen in the news it's usually about the conflict so how common is it to hear about what you might call normal everyday things well let's face it there was obviously a life before the war and there is a very strong culture in this country even though a lot of it when you look at cultural heritage sites for example in santa has been destroyed as as a result of the saudi airstrikes but also as a result of of attacks by the who because of the ongoing conflict but the desire to express yourself through culture to basically interact with other people and talk about that exactly daily life that didn't cease to exist and people that i have met a few seen in this report for example the film director but also the young people on the street they're really craving to find a space where they can express themselves and talk about the state of the struggles because. reproducing those pictures that you have seen obviously all around the world about the famine and about the conflict they say that's very very important to see what's going on but there's much more beyond what's going on in yemen that
6:23 pm
also need to be told as a story they say because otherwise the only thing that is coming out of this country is the conflict with no solution inside for them so they feel as very proud yemenis that there must be more than just the coverage of the conflict and at 1st i was a little bit myself a question in that situation because as we say the milly. people at the brink of starvation why would culture be important but talking to these people on the ground there realize culture is life to them it is something where you need to go out you need to be on the street you need to talk to other people because i suppose then the base wall that goes on that becomes normal normal life goes on exactly normal life goes on it depends also of course where you live in yemen if it is a city you still have some basic access to things arise if you are in regional parts of yemen it's even harsher to have access to medical aid to have access to food and
6:24 pm
all of these things but yes why these daily things are going on while daily life goes on the desire to basic desire of human beings which is as i mentioned to to talk about the situation on the ground is not going to cease to exist to criticize the situation that they go through and this is the difficult part here how do you criticize in disc a optics situation in yemen where it's different entities are at war with each other basically and they are competing interests how do you criticize through a theater play through a movie without putting yourself in danger and as a result there were no public performances almost no public performances since the war began in yemen in 2014 and so how do the various sources then regard the sorts of cultural expressions as a result that you can't really define who is the local authority especially especially in aden because when you go through different checkpoints you really realize there are so many different elements at play who are controlling this city you wonder actually yes is it relevant to them at all i would rather say as i say
6:25 pm
it is dangerous to express yourself yes because you could definitely find yourself in a situation that jihadi strike and actually attack one of these live performances as a result for example on that i've met v.f. seen in this report was rehearsing a play was going to perform display actually today an aide and he told me on the phone just before he. he's going to try and perform you know wedding hall to try to make sure that these people even though it's public but not as public to make sure you protect the people while at the same time you want to mabel that they just have a call even think we're going to be tutored to get in there and just bring us a nother side of what's going on in yemen and finish up thank you. austrian skiing legend marcel here has announced his retirement bringing a lustrous korea to an end is considered the best competition in the world in the overall world cup title record 8 times and is a multiple world and elaborate champion the 1st year old said he wanted to spend
