8:03 am
exactly so that conference has been already the leg for today's negotiators have been without birdies sleeping for 2 nights still they are struggling to find an agreement as you can see behind me they are meeting hopefully to have this. and then next hour they released a couple of hours ago but. even society are saying that they are not very happy again with the results of that they it's so we have to wait until they see a exit from this conference from the say a plane a room to see if they find out if there is an agreement you talk about the tax which of course is central to all of this delegates have been talking for 2 weeks now what specifically is holding up the discussions about this tax. the main sticking points are finance on the one hand so how should develop countries help developing countries cope with the effects of climate change they've been historically the main meters of greenhouse emissions and they are more

responsible for global warming so there have been countries are asking for their help to be able to move to a cleaner future and then also there is some market mechanism that is being discussed on how countries can trade with carbon emissions and there are 3 main opponents or 3 countries that are making negotiations particularly difficult difficult and it is the u.s. . so your $1000000.00 question when can we expect to see some progress. hopefully we can see some progress on finalizing an agreement on how these finance will move forward but also on the issue and it's also one of the main points to be achieved this year so from next year from 20 to 20 that by disagreement should really be on it's time for climate action we've been listening to that many times but the still they've done that
8:05 am
agree on how this climate action will take place on this is what it has to be decided here this year hopefully after the split not really we can have an agreement or where the but there is something very important to make clear on it is that everyone around here especially n.g.o.s and civil society are saying that this has been a failure independently from what happens at the end so if we reach an agreement if countries reach an agreement it will be probably every week agreement and this is the agreement that will decide over the future years and if there is no on agreement then of course there is a fear as well because this has already this was supposed to be decided that over the last year. to be moved for next year in both cases the scope has been a big failure great point your correspondent. thank you so much. now to some of the other stories making news around the world. police have clashed

to get the job done. that was new zealand's deputy police commissioner mike clement . tens of thousands of people have gathered in rome to protest against the divisive rhetoric of the italian far right leader mikhail salvini and his anti immigration league party the movement started just a month ago as a flash mob participants adopted the name sardines as they aim to fill public squares as tightly as possible. many say it's the youth that movement that people of all ages showed up in rome on saturday. they're calling for more humanity and less racism in italian politics it's only been a month since the saudi movement was spawned but this weekend tens of thousands assembled from around the country they gathered in piazza sanjeev ani a traditional rallying spot for leftwing demonstrations. i think would have been
8:09 am
the sort of authority we certainly have values much closer to the left than to the right but i believe that at this stage with the supremacist populist front so powerful and impetuous the progressive front is much more necessary than a left front to see stuff you could even see. that concern widespread support for this man. right wing populist leader of the league currently italy's biggest political party they may win a historic victory in regional elections next month. missing a name that it's not being against salvini us a person. any to the leak to any other force which behaves unacceptably and she says file and language i say no. and that is why so danes were gone to say no and to start saying yes again. any idea that you see. there also singing out loud shout singing bella chao an old partisan song.

8:11 am
actually resulted anything is is what you asked as well i mean is it going to be a political party as such and i think the key test will be in the regional election that is expected next month and that's of the region of a 1000000 romagna where below nya is located the 1st spot where we saw this gathering created this election is going to be watched because a new level man is technically a very left leaning a region it is all red and good to see weight change just towards the far right party of the league now that's what mateo's albini has been campaigning for and he successfully did that in the regional area in the center of italy which we saw in elections earlier this year changed towards the center right party so i think that's we're going to see whether it's just about a gathering in plots or is it going to translate into votes. no 2 bull garia in a small village that's making
